AmeraMex International Provides Third Quarter Financial Update

Progress in Africa Expected to Change the Playing Field for AmeraMex

CHICO, CA--(Marketwire - November 11, 2009) - AmeraMex International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AMMX), a provider of heavy equipment to the stevedoring industry (shipping and logistics), infrastructure and commercial construction, today reported financial results for its third quarter and nine-month period ended September 30, 2009.

"The downturn in the U.S. economy over the past nine months has had a negative impact on our U.S. customer base, which in turn has reduced our revenue to levels not seen since 2002," said AmeraMex CEO Lee Hamre. "We are beginning to build a substantial proposal pipeline from our port customers, as they must purchase new container handlers that meet mandatory EPA Tier III compliance. When our port customers acquire new equipment, we and our new partner, Cromer Equipment, have an opportunity to purchase and refurbish the non-compliant equipment for resale out of the country. We recently purchased used port equipment for refurbishment with a resale value of approximately $1 to $1.5 million."

Hamre continued, "The progress being made in North Africa is beginning to generate revenue and a potential pipeline of business that can change the playing field for AmeraMex. I'll be in Africa for the next 14 days and expect to provide our shareholders with a positive update upon my return."

For the third quarter ended September 30, 2009, the company reported revenue of $635,344 and a net loss of ($315,652), or a loss per share of ($.0.001). EBITDA for the quarter was ($244,567). EBITDA, earnings before interest, taxes, deprecation and amortization, is an accepted industry tool to measure the fundamentals of growth companies.

For the nine-month period ended September 30, 2009, the company reported revenue of approximately $7.4 million, with a net loss of ($396,077), or a net loss per share of ($0.001). EBITDA for the period was ($124,909).
