Amiworld Reports Third Quarter 2009 Financial Results
Revenues Increase 227% to a Quarterly Record of $18,691,898
NEW YORK, Nov. 30, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amiworld, Inc. (OTCBB:AMWO) (BSX:AMI BH), an international energy company engaged in the production and distribution of diversified fuel products and services with a focus on emerging global economies, today reported financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2009:
* Revenues of $18,691,898, compared to $5,710,492 for the third quarter in 2008, a 227% increase; * Revenues included: * $15,608,242 by Odin Petroleum from petroleum resale * $3,083,656 by Odin Energy, the biodiesel production business * Gross profit of $1,084,183, compared to $1,282,877 for the similar period in 2008; * Net loss of $1,129,897 (approximately $.05 per share) for the three months ended September 30, 2009, compared to net income of $92,377 (less than $.01 per share) for the same period a year ago.
The decrease in gross profit was attributable to substantial increase in petroleum resales, which carries a lower margin than refinery sales. Additionally during the three months ended September 30, 2009 Odin Petroil did not have any sales as the division is in the process of developing a stable customer base.
"Our primary business over the next 12 months will be the continued expansion and operation of our biodiesel plant and oil refinery. Both of our plants are currently operational and we are currently continuing to build our supply and customer bases," stated Mamoru Saito, Chief Executive Officer of Amiworld. "In addition, we are also exploring the possibility of developing additional refineries, including other refineries in coastal cities in Colombia. Given our strong working relationship with the government in Colombia, we believe it makes economic sense for us to consider expansion in this area. Finally, we are exploring the possibility of engaging in limited oil exploration activities in Colombia in order to reduce our crude costs and secure future sources of crude for our operations. These plans are in support of our stated corporate goal of becoming a major petroleum and biodiesel supplier and reseller in Colombia and throughout Latin America."
