Universal Bioenergy Plans to Launch International Coal Division for Export to
Foreign Markets

IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Universal Bioenergy Inc.,
(OTCMarkets:UBRG), a publicly traded independent diversified energy company
that markets and distributes natural gas, electric power, and coal, in its
plans for growth and expansion, announced that it is planning to establish a
new division that will focus on the sales of coal for export to the
international market, to generate millions in additional revenues, higher
margins and potential profits.

The new division will take advantage of the growing demand for coal in
countries whose economies and infrastructure are experiencing high
growth,have a greater demand for energy, electric power and coal to produce
electricity and to manufacture steel. These countries include China, India,
South Korea, Mexico and some European countries, including Germany, England,
Ireland and Poland. Executives of Universal Bioenergy have engaged in direct
meetings with representatives of the U.S. Department of Commerce in Irvine,
California to assist the Company in its efforts to export coal and other
energy products to the international market. The Company will also be working
withthe U.S. Department of Commerce's offices in those targeted countries to
facilitate the export of energy products to companies in those countries.

According to the U.S Energy Information Administration, the United States
holds the world's largest estimated recoverable reserves of coal and is a net
exporter of coal. The International Energy Agency (IEA) in its Medium-Term
Coal Market Report 2012, forecastthat Coal's share of the global energy mix
continues to rise, and by 2017 coal will come close to surpassing oil as the
world's top energy source.

Vince M. Guest, Universal's President states, "We are very excited about our
plans to establish our international coal sales division. We have already
established domestic and international relationships with a network of coal
buyers, brokers, traders, transportation and shipping companies to arrange for
the export of coal. We have also established contacts with several Embassies
and Consulates in those targeted countries to arrange for the export of coal
and other energy products to meet their growing demands. We believe this
should bring millions in additional revenues, higher margins and potential
profits for the company."
