MIAMI, FL, United States, via ETELIGIS INC., 01/29/2015 – – Amazonas Florestal, Ltd. ("Amazonas" or "Company") (www.amazonasf.com) (OTC Pink: AZFL) (PINKSHEETS: AZFL), a natural resources company generating profit through innovative, sustainable forest management on its land holdings located in the northern regions of the Brazilian Amazon, is pleased to announce the Company has published its 2014 Annual Report. As a result, the company assets and timber inventory added a combined value of more than $4 Million to the Company’s asset base, an increase of more than 10%.
Amazonas’s CEO, Pepper Stebbins, commented, “Our goal to achieve revenues from the Brazilian operations in the last quarter of 2014 was not fulfilled mainly due to seasonal and licensing issues in the state of Rondonia where the Company has commenced operations. These matters have since been resolved and we should now see these operations begin to flourish with decent amounts of product during the first two quarters of 2015. These shipments should later increase each quarter as the harvest season comes into full swing in this part of Brazil beginning in late June. We have also added significant amounts to the timber inventories over the last year, which will allow for solid growth potential once financing to extract timber from these properties sustainably – is achieved. There appears to be an evident increase in demand over the last couple of quarters for precisely the exact tropical hardwood products that we will now have the capability to manufacture and deliver. It’s an exciting time for us and our shareholders.”
Ricardo Cortez, Amazonas’ Chairman of the Board, added, “The Company continues to push forward with its commitment of shipping sleepers and decking from the area around Cujubim, Rondonia, where operations began in late 2013 but later halted during the short season last year due to rains and the 2014 World Cup. We expect our Brazilian operations to begin shipping substantially this year, capitalizing on recent market increases in most of the flooring, decking and sleeper products that Amazonas is focused on manufacturing. Coupled with our newly developed Hemp subsidiary in Colorado that seems to be taking shape, our present outlook on securing profitable revenue in 2015 seems to be very good.”
