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."

Most of the IoT Gateway scenarios involve collecting data from machines/processing and pushing data upstream to cloud for further analytics. The gateway hardware varies from Raspberry Pi to Industrial PCs. The document states the process of allowing deploying polyglot data pipelining software with the clear notion of supporting immutability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Shashank Jain, a development architect for SAP Labs, discussed the objective, which is to automate the IoT deployment process from development to production scenarios using Docker containers.

We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningful and actionable insights. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Paul Turner, Chief Marketing Officer at...

Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessions, I wanted to share some of my observations on emerging trends. As cyber security serves as a fou...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets – people, objects, and spaces – can share information about themselves and thei...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...

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.
