Emerging Public Company
Colorado Goldfields Inc. (OTC:BB CGFI), http://www.cologold.com, is a Denver-based junior exploration and mining company primarily exploring for gold and silver. Our seasoned management team targets historic gold camps with strong potential for multiple deposit discovery. Currently, our business model in Colorado provides an outstanding combination of former producing properties with excellent exploration and production potential and a currently inactive, modern up to 700 ton per day capacity mill facility to allow for an attractive short-term production time frame. We expect that this strategic plan will allow Colorado Goldfields to reach its goal of profitability, potentially within the next 18 months.
Founder and International
As Chief Financial Officer, Founder and Director, Antelope Technologies, Inc. Highlands Ranch, Colorado and Neuchâtel, Switzerland and the cornerstone of the founding group, Guyer led the formation of the firm which manufactures the only modular computer in the world. Responsibilities included all aspects of finance, accounting, legal and human resources. Raised over $6 million in debt and private equity. Guyer formed a wholly owned subsidiary in Switzerland. Unique experience included: international transfer pricing and tax strategies, foreign currency, international economic development, and negotiation of strategic relationships with IBM, Mettler-Toledo, Eltan, IBM Global Finance, Swiss Cantonale bank, Key Bank NA, and Transmeta.
Guyer has successfully restructured countless companies to produce exceptional results. Recruited by one company to facilitate a 50% year-over-year growth, Guyer reduced bank fees by 50%, negotiated a 20% collateral reduction on a $1 million credit facility, improved cash management, and refined the credit underwriting process yielding only a .03% bad debt expense on $56 million in revenue.
Another restructuring role involved the construction of the financial reporting and technology support departments for a faltering cable TV company that had relocated to Colorado. Guyer’s initiatives impacted all facets of financial reporting, accounting, data processing, administration, market analysis and engineering. As a result, the company grew 300% in three and a half years and was later acquired by TCI (now AT&T Broadband).
Master of Turnarounds
Turnarounds are one of our major areas of expertise. For a large transportation firm, Guyer reversed losses through overhead reductions, compensation plan reviews, and debt/equity analysis. Guyer also implemented measures that boosted after tax net income $700K on $12 million in revenue (a 6% improvement) within one year.
