FAIRFIELD, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / May 9, 2022 / Bergio International, Inc. ('Bergio,' or the 'Company') (OTC PINK:BRGO), an American holding corporation and global leader in eCommerce and fashion tech, has reported its financial results for the first quarter of 2022. In the first quarter, worldwide gross sales were $2,095,551, an approximate 82% increase compared to $1,149,314 the previous year.
Bergio's debt (convertible note) has lowered significantly to $52,801 compared to $946,286 in 2021, a 94% decrease from 2021. And, total liability has dropped to $5,328,016 from $7,034,433 from the prior year. This boosted stockholder equity to $4,771,706 from $3,740,303, an increase of 27% from 2021.
Berge Abajian, CEO of Bergio International Inc., states, 'Our quarterly sales fell in line with our projections. Since the acquisitions of 2021, we've been focusing on cleaning the balance sheet from the convertible debt which resulted in some dilution. But, we can report that the dilution has drastically reduced and all the funding we received for the acquisition has been paid.'
He continued, 'I see a very bright future ahead with less dilution. Our second quarter has met our expectations and our key marketplace platforms like Amazon and Etsy surpassed our projections, setting a pace for a momentous year.'
'Now that the debt (convertible note) on the balance sheet is significantly lowered and with the increase of the stockholder equity, we should see a positive effect on the stock price', Berge concluded.
