STANLEY, ND--(Marketwire - Feb 7, 2013) - Luminart Corp. (PINKSHEETS: LUMP) closed out the year with some major accomplishments and substantial gains. In January of 2012, Luminart acquired complete ownership of White Star Sand & Gravel which added approximately $4M to the revenue base. White Star also expanded the mining sites with leases signed for Donneybrook and Newtown. May brought the formation of the subsidiary Outwest Field Services which shortly thereafter achieved vendor status with Thomas tools and later in the year, established an MSA with EMS. The 2 agreements potentially add an estimated $700K per month to top line revenue. Outwest also acquired several out of state contractor's licenses during the year. Subsidiary B3 Well Services broke ground on the man camps and completion should come sometime this spring (2013). Luminart's Black & Blue Water division was activated mid-year and contributed to revenue with the addition of well drilling capabilities. 2012 brought a significant gain in fixed assets increasing from $3.1M to $6.5M. Luminart added depth and experience to the company by forming an advisory board comprised of Mitch Swergold and William Rippy and further expanded that experience through the addition of the new V.P. of Finance, Randy Wells.
"This has been an amazing year for us in so many ways," said Luminart President Burke Bentley. "We had a tremendous amount of growth in revenue, business contracts, and assets, and the conversion of the bulk of our asset base from lease contracts to purchase contracts was a big part of that growth. The year was not without its challenges but with the impact of things like the addition of subsidiary Outwest Field Services and the relentless effort to drive the company forward with new contracts and contacts by Operations manager Brandon Bentley, we were able to push through those challenges and maintain our forward momentum. Moving CFO Tom Maher to our Utah office was also critical to the success we had in 2012. CEO Mike Reynolds worked diligently on the investment side of the company and it was through his efforts that we were able to form our advisory board and bring on our new V.P. of finance, Randy Wells. The most exciting thing about what transpired in 2012 is that it's still just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what the future looks like for us and our shareholders. This year, we are going to focus on Mergers & Acquisitions of companies similar to ours and integrate these additions into our system of success. We expect a substantial increase in revenue in 2013 and plan to expand the business beyond North Dakota to many of the states that have been affected by the huge growth in the oil industry."
