GROVELAND, Fla., Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Eco Ventures Group, Inc. (OTCBB: EVGI), an emerging producer of diversified sustainable alternative energy and resources, today announced the Company was featured, favorably, in a recent research report on the biofuel industry. That report, titled, "What Happened to Biofuel 1.0?" is available at http://seekingalpha.com/article/939371-what-happened-to-biofuel-1-0.
The research report is written by Randy Lewis, MBA, CFA, AVA, founder of The GSL Group (www.thegslgroupllc.com). Mr. Lewis is a highly accredited securities analyst with 13 years experience, and GSL specializes in valuation and business planning services. Excerpts from the report include:
"Earlier this summer, EVGI signed a definitive agreement to acquire Energiepark Suptitz GmbH, a German rapeseed oil producer ('EPS'). EPS is also involved in brokering rapeseed oil and has some interests in solar and wood chips as well. What was 75% ownership, will now be 100%."
"Regarding revenue, management is talking some big numbers, which include primarily EPS. FY 2013 revenue will be derived from:
- EPS operations which include the aforementioned
- A 3.6 million gallon biofuel facility to begin operations Q1 2013
- Another five million gallon facility to begin operations around the beginning of Q4 2013."
"Things look more promising especially with the announcement last week of an expanded EPS deal for $121 million over the next 15 months. The contract with this existing customer was slated to account for about $15 million this year."
"Furthermore, the balance sheet - read, 'net assets' - acquired from EPS might make the company ready for a senior exchange almost immediately."
