Vivakor Exceeds Estimates, Announces 1st Quarter 2014 Results

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - May 19, 2014) - Vivakor Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VIVK) today announced GAAP based financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2014.

Q1 Financial Highlights

  • VivaVentures Inc. exceeded quarter over quarter expectations on its metals production by 12% as previously reported on April 16, 2014.
  • Total Assets increased over 25% for the quarter ended March 31, 2014.
  • Vivakor reports decreased liabilities by $872K or 17.45% from the previous quarter ended December 31, 2013.
  • The Company reports an increase in shareholder equity of $1.45M for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, an increase of 25.3% compared to the fourth quarter of 2013.
  • The Company entered into a Royalty Land Lease Agreement with National Reserves Mining Statutory Trust (NRMST) spanning ten (10) years with a minimum value to Vivakor of Fifty Million ($50M) dollars over that period.

Vivakor established increasing efficiencies to its operating model in order to further sharpen its focus on value. This was in anticipation of the new scaled-up extraction machine coming on-line in May 2014. The progressive momentum in production output will continue in the form of lower costs, improved yield and greater cash flow for the Company.

The longer-range strategy is to increase its capital position in support of continued procurement of strategic assets. Vivakor maintains a commitment to a seamless asset acquisition plan that is supported strongly by protection of all its assets and is comprised of the following:

  • Qualitative/Best-Practices Model for managing Vivakor, Inc.
  • Built on increasing Net Present Value (NPV)
  • Increasing the Company's Book Value
  • Driving Earnings and keeping Operating Expenses low
  • Capital accumulation for asset acquisition which includes:
    • Precious Metal Extraction Machines
    • In-Ground Asset Acquisition
    • Investments in other income producing assets and/or strategic technologies 

Vivakor realizes a very strong precious metals yield through a highly efficient and optimized mining extraction processs that is proprietary with a very low cost basis per ton of ore processed.

Chairman and CEO Matt Nicosia stated, "We are very pleased about our continued ability to drive value for shareholders, and to position the business to capture the benefits of continued demand growth in this sector in the longer term. We have now been able to attain four successive quarters of overall positive results.

"Higher production output has enabled us to increase our total asset growth for the company in four consecutive quarters while reducing our liabilities. Our highly efficient extraction process enables continued asset accrual going forward. Last year we improved by 35% quarter-over-quarter our total ounces accumulated from our mining operations and this year we are off to a great start.

"The addition of more robust metals extraction units this year is setting the stage for Vivakor's long-range positioning in the Precious Metals markets and we're excited about that prospect! We appreciate the trust and marked confidence in Vivakor."

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course).

And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
