Universal Bioenergy Stock Soars 76.47%, Trades Over 9.04 Million Shares On News Of Lifting Of DTC Chill

IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 24, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Universal Bioenergy Inc., (OTCMarkets:UBRG), a publicly traded independent diversified energy company, announced that shares of its common stock soared more than 76.47%, and 9,047,554 shares of its stock traded on Tuesday, October 23, 2012 after it reported that the Depository Trust Company (DTC) has lifted the "Deposit Chill" on the Company's stock. All deposit restrictions have been removed, and the Company is now once again fully "DTC Eligible", and has resumed full electronic trading of the Company's common stock.

Encouraged by the news from the DTC, investors quickly purchased the stock at a rate of over 1.20 million shares per hour, or over 20,105 shares per minute throughout the trading day. This was one of the highest volume trading days for 2012 thus far. A total of 9,047,554 shares were traded on Tuesday, which was about 2.35 times the average daily trading volume of 3,844,970 of Universal's shares.

The DTC's removal of the Chill, now allows all shareholders with online brokerage accounts with firms such as Scottrade, ETRADE, TD Ameritrade, and all other full service brokerage firms to purchase, sell and execute their trades in Universal's stock in the standard electronic trading process. This should also increase the trading volume, liquidity, and create a broader distribution of the Company's stock over a greater number of shareholders, stockbrokers and Market Makers in the investment community.

Solomon Ali, Universal's Senior Vice President says, "This was truly a great day for the Company and our shareholders. This was one of the biggest trading days in our history. With the announcement of the lifting of the DTC Chill, and the focus on our push toward profitability, many investors have achieved a greater level of confidence in our Company, and believe Universal to be good long-term investment. We believe this will have a continued long-term sustained positive impact on our stock price, the value of the Company, and bring increased value to our shareholders."
