Universal's President Vince M. Guest states, "We are very excited that all of our subsidiaries are aggressively gearing up for major expansion for the next three to six months, through more joint ventures, energy contracts and acquisitions. Our acquisition team has been working very hard to find the right targets for us to acquire. The list mentioned in this new release, is just a sample of many of the transactions we are working on throughout all areas of the Company. We are pushing hard in an effort to reduce our debt, improve our balance sheet, and achieve positive earnings in the next one to two quarters, if possible. We are planning to appoint a new president of Texas Gulf Oil and Gas, as it will be playing a much greater role in this major expansion, and it may even eclipse some of our other divisions and subsidiaries in terms of revenue growth and potential profitability. We will be providing full information to the public on all of these transactions in the very near future as these individually close. We believe these strategic transactions, should they be completed, should have a very positive effect on our stock price and our shareholders. We encourage our shareholders to watch the news as these transactions unfold".
