GROVELAND, Fla., Sept. 18, 2012 -- Eco Ventures Group, Inc. (OTCBB: EVGI) today reported a successful National Investment Banking Association (NIBA) Conference in New York City last week. Held September 12 – 14, the sold-out conference showcased just 25 high growth companies to a large number of private equity funds, hedge funds and investment bankers.
"EVGI President Mark Cox said. "There are very few developmental stage companies in this growing sector fully prepared to make the quantum leap to over $50 million in revenue, with positive cash flow and a steep upward four-year growth trend, as we expect to accomplish with the EPS transaction. Understandably, we created quite a buzz at NIBA."
"And as important as EPS is," Mr. Cox added, "EVGI also has a number of equally valuable organic Company growth business initiatives in development that we plan to roll out in the fourth quarter of this year. So while we are very excited about the future, we remain focused on the present and completing our 3.6 million gallon biofuel manufacturing plant in Groveland, Florida -- where we recently announced we had applied for, and were granted, local permits for 20 million to 50 million gallons of annual biofuel production."
The full Company NIBA investor presentation, and an accompanying executive summary, is available to the public as an exhibit to the Form 8-K filed with the SEC September 13.
Randall Lanham, Eco Ventures Group CEO, said, "With his Wall Street management background and most recent ten-year focus on the alternative energy sector, NIBA was the ideal debut for our new president Mark Cox. As expected, he delivered his presentation flawlessly to a room full of fund managers and investment bankers generating strong interest with that audience for participating in our growth. In addition to his presentation, we had an exhibition booth at this exclusive conference staffed by EVG management and our senior IR representatives throughout the week."
