Vivakor Announces Q4 and Year-End Results for Fiscal 2013

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - March 27, 2014) -  Vivakor Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VIVK) reports that the Company closed its 2013 fourth quarter and year-end with strong financial results. This makes the third successive quarter of positive numbers from the Company. Much of this success is attributed to the highly productive efficiency of its proprietary, industry disruptive technology and methodology for extraction of Precious Metals from ore bodies in Arizona and Colorado.

The disciplined capital allocation structure from the initial capital raise that Vivakor adopted through 2013 has been at the core of every decision made in the last year. This has put Vivakor in a much stronger position to deal with the Precious Metals supply and price environment the markets realistically face today. Last year many of the Major and Junior Mining companies announced a significant pullback and slowdown in their mining operations toward the end of 2013 due to their high mining costs. Vivakor however enjoys a highly efficient and optimized extraction process with a low cost basis per ton of ore processed and a very healthy gold equivalent yield realized per ton of sand based ore that Vivakor processes.

Chairman and CEO Matt Nicosia stated, "We successfully executed on our key priorities in 2013, which include operational optimization, the acquisition of additional mining claims in Arizona (increasing our asset base) and diversification of our portfolio as we entered into a joint arrangement into Kyrgyzstan toward the end of 2013. These were the right decisions for our shareholders and for the Company, and now in 2014 we are seeing the tangible benefits of our past efforts. We drove significant growth in the stock price and capped off the year with a substantial forward-stock split as we closed a momentous 2013. We will continue to build a stronger business by delivering industry leading cost and efficiency along with stable production as we further grow our processing capacity; through this we build a stronger asset portfolio as we continue to increase our cash position and reduce our liabilities."

"We are extremely pleased about our effort to continue to maximize value for shareholders, and to position the business to capture the benefits of precious metals demand growth and physical inventory shortfall across the globe. Higher production output increases asset growth and our low-cost extraction business model ensures continued cash accruement going forward. Vivakor is well poised to expand its operational capacity this year and remains vigilant in its pursuit of other significant opportunities as well in the near term. Continuing to build a solid investment grade balance sheet is a major motivation in 2014."

Even though you are running an agile development process, that doesn’t necessarily mean that your performance testing is being conducted in a truly agile way. Saving performance testing for a “final sprint” before release still treats it like a waterfall development step, with all the cost and risk that comes with that. In this post, we will show you how to make load testing happen early and often by putting SLAs on the agile task board.
