CHICO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 -- AmeraMex International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AMMX), a provider of heavy equipment to infrastructure, shipping, construction and farming companies, today reported financial results for its third quarter and nine-month period, ended September 30, 2012.
Highlights for the quarter:
- The company's first SEC compliant audit is on target to be completed with the first audited annual report scheduled for submission to the SEC by March 30, 2012.
- The company is interviewing CFO candidates and has retained a financial consultant until the position is filled.
- A conference call to update shareholders and members of the financial community is scheduled Monday, December 10, 2012. A separate news release containing dial-in information will be disseminated later this week.
Third Quarter, Ended September 30, 2012
The company reported revenue of approximately $.513 million with gross profit of $.487 million compared to revenue of approximately $1.2 million with gross profit of $.633 million for the third quarter of 2011.
Gross profit margins, as a percentage of revenue, were 95 percent, a significant increase when compared to gross profit margins of 55 percent for the comparable quarter in 2011. Improved margins are due in part to product mix and the company's trucking operation.
The company reported a net loss for the quarter of $.150 million compared to net income of $.038 million for the third quarter of 2011. This is due in part to increased operating expenses incurred from refurbishing a large number of port container handling trucks that that have yet to be sold.
Nine-Month Period Ended September 30, 2012
Revenue for the nine-month period was approximately $2.5 million compared to revenue of $3.5 million for the comparable 2011 period. The company reported a net loss of $.129 million for the period, versus net income of $.170 million for the comparable period in 2011.
Gross profit for the period was approximately $1.7 million compared to $1.6 million for the 2011 nine-month period. Profit margins as a percentage of revenue were 66 percent, a significant improvement when compared to profit margins of 46 percent for the 2011 nine-month period.
AmeraMex CEO Lee Hamre commented, "We fully anticipated announcing a number of meaningful contracts this quarter and are continuing to pursue these opportunities. We do, however, expect to finish the year with a strong fourth quarter. We are also continuing to expand our prospective sales pipeline within our existing customer base as economies in many South American countries continue to grow. We look forward to discussing these opportunities with you during our upcoming conference call."

Containers are not new, but renewed commitments to performance, flexibility, and agility have propelled them to the top of the agenda today. By working without the need for virtualization and its overhead, containers are seen as the perfect way to deploy apps and services across multiple clouds. Containers can handle anything from file types to operating systems and services, including microservices. What are microservices? Unlike what the name implies, microservices are not necessarily small, but are focused on specific tasks. The ability for developers to deploy multiple containers – thous...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.

This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...
