(OTCQB: UBRG), a publicly traded independent diversified energy company that markets and distributes natural gas, petroleum, coal and electricity, announced it has approved a plan to restructure its financials in an effort to improve its Balance Sheet, further reduce its debt, generate strong earnings and improve shareholder returns.

Universal's Senior Vice President Solomon Ali states, "By reducing our debt by $3.2 million last year, it greatly improved our financials and our Balance Sheet. However, we are not done yet. Our goal is to continue in our pursuit to generate profits for the Company. Therefore, we will continue to work with our creditors to pay down and pay off many of the debt instruments that were created several years ago to finance the Company's initial growth and expansion. As a matter of fact, the Company has significantly reduced its reliance on borrowing from its creditors for the last 16 months. We believe these efforts should continue to improve our financial performance and position the Company to be profitable."
