***AmeraMex International Reports 2014 Year-End Financials: Revenue Increased 24 Percent, Gross Profit Increased 46 Percent and Net Income Increased 73 Percent***
CHICO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 13, 2015) - AmeraMex International, Inc. (OTC PINK: AMMX), today reported financial results for its financial year ended December 31, 2014.
Highlights for the Year Ended December 31, 2014
Revenue for 2014 Increased 24 Percent; Gross Profit Increased 46 Percent
The company reported revenue of approximately $7.3 million with gross profit of $3.6 million, compared to revenue of approximately $5.9 million with gross profit of $2.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2013.
Net Income Increased 73 Percent
The company reported a net income for the year of approximately $.801 million, compared to net income of $.463 million for the year ended December 31, 2013. This is due in part to a significant decrease in cost of sales.
Stronger Balance Sheet
Total Liabilities decreased by 30 percent from approximately $3.3 million in 2013 to approximately $2.3 million in 2014.
AmeraMex CEO Lee Hamre commented, "We are continuing to increase our revenue while improving our cost of goods sold thanks to sustained growth in our core business, which includes refurbished equipment. We are working diligently on our pipeline of business in Africa and anticipate closing our first large order in the near future. While sustaining revenue growth is a necessity, it is equally important that we present a strong balance sheet to shareholders and potential customers. With that said, we were able to decrease our Accounts Payable by almost a million dollars in 2014 and our overall Total Liabilities by 30 percent."
Hamre continued, "I have just returned from Niger and expect to provide an update regarding our trip during the Shareholder Conference Call scheduled April 21st at 11:00 a.m. PT and 2:00 p.m. ET."
***AmeraMex International Reports Sales of $420,000***
"While we are confident in the success of the funding, we are not putting all of our energy into International export. We have two AmeraMex consultants in the region to work with the Niger government on the truck agreement and other opportunities. We have just received notice from Niger's Minister of Defense that a $15 million proposal for late model construction equipment, submitted six months ago, has passed the approval stage by Parliament. Business in Africa is abundant but takes longer to culminate because of funding. For this reason," added Hamre, "we are always working hard on expanding our core business here in the Americas. This core business is what we know the best and what we have been doing for over 37 years."
***AmeraMex International Acquires Container Handlers With Retail Value of $2.5 Million***
CHICO, Calif., Sept. 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AmeraMex International, Inc. (AMMX), a provider of heavy equipment for logistics companies (stevedoring/shipping), infrastructure construction, commercial farming and mining companies, announced that it has acquired a number of used container handlers for sale. The container handlers, which have a resale value of approximately $2.5 million, are being readied for shipment to the United States.
AmeraMex CEO Lee Hamre commented, "We are constantly searching for used heavy equipment as we have a continuing demand for refurbished container handlers from our international customer base."
CHICO, Calif., Aug. 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AmeraMex International, Inc. (OTC:AMMX), a provider of heavy equipment for logistics companies (stevedoring/shipping), infrastructure construction, commercial farming and mining companies, announced that it has sold two refurbished container handlers to a customer in Florida and one refurbished container handler to a customer in Mexico. Both sales total $420,000.
The company has also completed the purchase of used loaded container handlers from a customer that is updating their fleet. The equipment is being transported to the shop in Chico, Calif. where refurbishing will begin immediately. The retail value of the handlers is approximately $600,000.
According to AmeraMex CEO Lee Hamre, the two banks and the government of Niger expect the various contracts between the banks, the government and private companies responsible for the transportation projects to take six to eight weeks for completion. The lender does have the Bank Guarantees and is waiting for the final agreements to complete the funding package for approval.
Hamre commented, "The length of time to complete the funding package is disappointing to our shareholders but we do have three additional opportunities hinging on getting this trucking deal put together properly within the public and private sectors for the funding group. Once completed, the other opportunities will move more smoothly through the government and private channels."

AmeraMex has four business units, Hamre Equipment Inc., Hamre Heavy Haul Industry, which includes Hamre Equipment Acquisiton, Hamre Parts & Service, and John's Radiator. Over the past 30 years, AmeraMex has grown from a used forklift dealer in Northern California to the owner and operator of a $5.0 million fleet of heavy equipment for sale, lease or rent to companies in the United States, as well as companies located in Canada, Indonesia, Germany, Singapore, Vietnam, China, Russia, Central America and Mexico.
AmeraMex business units are authorized dealers for quality manufacturers, such as Taylor Machine Works, Terex Heavy Equipment, and Barko Hydraulics. The company carries a large inventory of front end loaders, scrapers, excavators, backhoes, rock trucks, container handlers, log loaders, forklifts, wheel loaders, trucks and trailers. AmeraMex maintains a complete maintenance organization, which includes a large parts inventory and service department, complete with steam cleaning services, sand blasting and paint shop.
AmeraMex supplies heavy equipment to many different industries. The fastest growing market for AmeraMex is the shipping industry. The company maintains an extensive line of equipment for the loading and off-loading of shipping containers from ships coming in and going out of ports up and down the West Coast of the United States.
In addition to equipment for the handling of shipping containers, AmeraMex has an extensive equipment inventory for infrastructure development, including road construction and land development projects. Infrastructure projects require the lease and rental of heavy equipment and contribute significantly to the company’s continued revenue growth. With the growing demand for infrastructure development, AmeraMex has expanded its rental fleet of heavy construction equipment with Terex front end loaders, scrapers, excavators, backhoes and rock trucks. This equipment is usually rented, rather than purchased, for infrastructure projects.
