AmeraMex International Reports a Profitable 2011 with a 53 Percent Increase in Revenue

CHICO, CA – April 3, 2012 – AmeraMex International, Inc. (OTC: AMMX), a provider of heavy equipment for the infrastructure construction, logistics (stevedoring and shipping), farming and mining industries, provided financial results for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Current Highlights:

  • The two-year audit is expected to be finalized shortly. The 2011 year end had to be completed before finalizing the audit.
  • Order pipeline is strong going into the second quarter of 2012.
  • African projects continue to grind through red tape with anticipated news in second quarter.
AmeraMex President and CEO Lee Hamre commented, “2011 was a better year with the majority of revenue being generated internationally.  International relationships are beginning to flourish and we are experiencing reorders from customers, especially in South America. These customers primarily order refurbished equipment, which provides considerably better gross profit margins than new equipment.”

 

For the year ended December 31, 2011, the company reported revenue of approximately $5.2 million, a 53 percent increase, when compared to revenue of $3.4 million for 2010. Net profit for the year was $152,850, compared to a net loss of ($322,503) for 2010 – a significant improvement.
