IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 13, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Universal Bioenergy Inc. (Pink Sheets:UBRG), a publicly traded alternative energy company, announced it has signed an agreement with Amerisource Funding of Houston, Texas for Amerisource to provide it with an  aggregate $36 million dollar annual revolving funding line, for its future growth and expansion. The agreement will provide the Company and NDR Energy with working capital and accounts receivable financing for an indefinite term, and has provisions for increasing the funding line as the Company grows.

Amerisource Funding is a market leader in providing working capital and accounts receivable management solutions to small and middle market businesses. Founded in 1984, Amerisource has financed over $1 billion of funding for thousands of companies in virtually every U.S. State and Canada, and has provided small and middle market businesses with financing solutions and outsourced management of accounts receivable, credit and collection functions, all of which are vital to the success of any business. 

Universal's Vice President Solomon Ali states, "This a monumental step for us, as we grow and expand our business. We're very excited to have closed this major funding agreement with Amerisource, especially in the midst of a major recession, and the difficulties in raising capital in this environment. Lynn Collins, Amerisource's Regional Market Manager, and her team, expressed great confidence in us, and analyzed our business needs, our solid customer base, our great potential for growth, and provided us with the funding we needed to meet our goals for expansion. This will help us purchase more natural gas, and significantly increase the sales revenues from the contracts that we have with our 22 major utility customers nationwide. This is more great news for our shareholders, as we move the Company toward long-term profitability".
