Bergio International Announces First Quarter Results 2013

FAIRFIELD, NJ--(Marketwired - May 16, 2013) -  Bergio International, Inc. (OTCQB: BRGO) ("Bergio" or the "Company") announced today the first quarter results for 2013.

The Company reports revenues for the first quarter of 2013 of $316,770 compared to $329,947 for 2012. Further, the company reports loss from operation of $87,833 for the first quarter of 2013 compared to a loss of $32,451 for the same period last year. Our shareholder equity for the first quarter of 2013 was $1,537,408 compared to $1,385,623 for the same quarter last year. Our asset to liability ratio is 2:1. Our working capital for the first quarter of 2013 is $1,573,556 compared to $1,595,272 for the same period last year.

Berge Abajian, CEO of Bergio, stated, "Usually our first quarter is the slowest of the year, our numbers and results were flat compared to last year as expected earlier. We have positive expectations moving forward from the third quarter. Our gross margins were down, the cause of which was mainly the additional labor costs incurred for a multitude of new projects that we are currently working on. I'm very pleased with our asset to liability ratio and also our shareholder equity and working capital numbers. These are very important barometers that the banking institution looks into, in order to award a credit line to the company."

He continues, "As everyone is aware, we had a very successful launch with ShopNBC and are in the process of discussing a future airing of Bergio in the fourth quarter. At this time, we have no concrete numbers to report but once they are available they will be announced."

He added, "Our negotiation with Columbia Bank is in the final stages. Once the documents are finalized we will announce the specific numbers in the acquisition of the credit line. Based on the current situation, the process seems to be going smoothly. We are also working with other banking institutions, as previously mentioned, in order to finalize a larger funding. Our main focus this year is to have the company liquid enough to end the dilution."

Finally he stated, "We are currently in negotiations on other projects as well, which will be announced once they have come to full fruition. I would like to personally thank all of our shareholders for their support."
