Universal Bioenergy's NDR Energy Completes $2.7 Million Monthly Gas Transaction to One of the Largest Utilities in the US

Sale for 20,000 dth/day Is One of the Earliest Monthly Natural Gas Transactions in Company History

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 15, 2014) -  Universal Bioenergy Inc., (OTCQB: UBRG), a publicly traded independent diversified energy company that markets and distributes natural gas, propane, petroleum and coal, announced that its subsidiary, NDR Energy Group, has just completed one of the earliest monthly natural gas transactions in company history.

The April transaction was for the sale of natural gas to one of NDR's core customers and one of the largest utilities in the US. The transaction, pending confirmations, has an estimated sales price in excess of $2.7 million. The natural gas will be delivered to the customer during the month of May.

NDR Energy's President and CEO, Ken Harris, states, "We have opened our eyes to changing dynamics in the natural gas industry. Because of the growing strength of our relationships with customers, we are no longer limited to late month, traditional bid-week sales. I would like to thank Gina Roy, our operation manager, for consistent internal efforts to clarify 'the decline of bid-week.' Despite the traditional history of the industry, we, like many other growing and successful energy companies, are now focused on sales activity throughout each month. As the texture of our customer and supplier relationships continue to grow, we should see an increasing number of these transactions."

Universal Bioenergy's Sr. Vice President, Solomon RC Ali, states, "Both companies have worked diligently to reorganize our business models allowing for the pursuit of contracts outside of the traditional timelines. The ability of our partners at NDR Energy to nurture relationships and create new verticals with the largest energy suppliers and providers has increased contract opportunities for us and places us further along the road to profitability. NDR's efforts along with the new alliances at UBRG illustrate that we are looking to grow the companies more strategically with a focus on increased opportunities with marquee customers."
