CHICO, Calif., Aug. 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AmeraMex International, Inc. (OTC:AMMX), a provider of heavy equipment to infrastructure, shipping, construction, farming and mining companies, today reported financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2014 – 16 Percent Increase in Revenue

The company reported revenue of $1,042,041 compared to revenue of $878,413 for the second quarter of 2013. Net income for the quarter was $85,954 compared to net income of $272,218 for the second quarter of 2013. Gross profit, as a percentage of sales, was 57 percent compared to 77 percent for the comparable 2013 period.

Six-Month Period – 64 Percent Increase in Revenue

Revenue for the six-month period was $3,878,155 compared to revenue of $1,382,306 reported for the comparable six-month period of 2013. Gross profit margins, as a percentage of sales, increased 44 percent for the six-month period when compared to gross profit margins for the period ending June 2013. The company reported net income of $281,009, compared to net income of $342,206 for the six-month period in 2013.

According to CEO Lee Hamre, the company entered into an agreement with a West Coast customer to retrofit a number of loaded container handlers with EPA-approved Tier 4 engines for approximately $810,000. All container handlers and break-bulk equipment with engines over 100HP must meet Tier 4 emission standards to operate in California. This EPA 2008 ruling is being phased-in over the period of 2008-2015. New Tier 4 container handlers cost $600,000-$800,000, depending on capacity and configuration. A Tier 4 compliant engine can be purchased and installed for a fraction of new equipment cost – a significant savings for logistics companies.

AmeraMex CFO Kevin Atkin commented, "The delay in reporting our second quarter was due to the replacement of our accounting system. During the process of replacing our very old, complex accounting system with a system better adapted to handle the accounting complexities of our company, we discovered two areas that required significant adjustments - cost of goods sold and inventory valuation. Our goal is to be prepared for a two-year SEC audit to begin when the Niger agreement is funded."
