Deposit Chill Removed From Bergio Common Stock

FAIRFIELD, NJ--(Marketwired - Nov 25, 2013) - Bergio International, Inc. ("Bergio" or the "Company") (OTCQB: BRGO) - (http://www.bergio.com/), today announced that The Depository Trust Company has informed Bergio that it has lifted the "Deposit Chill" and has resumed accepting deposits of the Company's common stock for depository and book entry transfer services. All deposit restrictions have been removed and the Company is now once again fully "DTC Eligible."

Berge Abajian, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, "Removing the chill was the Company's top priority. Although it took slightly longer than anticipated, this is a great step toward moving Bergio forward. My main focus now is to improve the stockholder's value. I understand that the share price is selling significantly below what I feel it should be. I am putting forth the utmost effort by stopping use of convertible funding and ending stock dilution as previously stated. But, patience is necessary until the existing convertible notes are converted."

Mr. Abajian added, "Concerning the negotiations with the large wholesaler I would like to announce that all negotiations are ongoing. Due to the hectic holiday season, negotiations have currently stopped until January 2014. I want all shareholders to be aware that I have been persistent in finding an agreement which would benefit both parties involved, but these require further time to discuss details."

Mr. Abajian concluded, "We are pleased with the collaborative efforts by our securities counsel, Joseph M. Lucosky and Matthew J. Walsh of Lucosky Brookman LLP, as well as counsel for DTC and DTC itself, in working to remove the chill. We are grateful for their hard work and determination throughout this lengthy process, which was instrumental in accomplishing the removal of the Deposit Chill."
