AmeraMex International Announces a Profitable First Quarter With 30 Percent Increase in Revenue

CHICO, CA--(Marketwire - May 10, 2011) - AmeraMex International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AMMX), a provider of heavy equipment to logistics companies (stevedoring), infrastructure construction, and commercial farming and mining companies, today reported financial results for its first quarter, ended March 31, 2011.

First Quarter Highlights:

-- Second profitable quarter in four years
-- 30 percent growth in revenue
-- EBITDA increased to $18,504
-- Strong order backlog: $50 million potential over 18 to 24 months
-- Audit for SEC approval is underway
-- Feasibility study on farming project continues
-- Commodities division is poised to ship coffee beans in third quarter
-- Orders totaling approximately $1.5 million received in first quarter

For the quarter, the company reported revenue of approximately $1.2 million, with net income of $3,334. This is a 30 percent revenue increase, when compared to revenue of $913,290 and a net loss of $128,129, or a loss per share of $0.0004, for the comparable quarter in 2010. AmeraMex captures revenue upon shipment of equipment to its customers.

AmeraMex CEO Lee Hamre commented, "From 2005 through 2008, we reported increased revenue growth with losses. During 2009, domestic orders began to slow down and we began shipping more orders for refurbished equipment to customers outside the U.S. This allowed us to report a profitable second quarter and significant improvements to the bottom line. 2010 wasn't a stellar year on the top line, but our margins and bottom line continued to improve, due again to international sales of refurbished equipment."

Hamre continued, "Approximately 80 percent of our first quarter revenue was contributed by international sales, and we expect this trend to continue through 2011 and 2012. While our revenue growth may not increase as rapidly as it did in 2005 ($11.5 million), 2006 ($16.8 million), 2007 ($16 million) and 2008 ($23.6 million), we expect to see our international business strategy produce significant growth and higher profit margins, as we diligently work toward a breakeven year. The first quarter sets the pace and is a great way to begin the year."
