Amiworld Reports Record Financial Performance for 2008 Second Quarter
Amiworld, Inc. (OTCBB: AMWO), 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 record financial results for the second quarter 2008 of $3.1 million, a 20% increase over its first quarter and 75% of total revenues for fiscal 2007. The Company reported net income for the second quarter 2008 of $108,000 compared to a loss of $133,000 during the same period of 2007.
Six months fiscal 2008 revenues of $5.6 million represent a 300% increase of the $1.8 million reported for all of 2007.
The record earnings are a result of an aggressive business plan that has seen Amiworld consistently increase quarterly revenues and earnings. As the Company continues with its expansion plans to triple its production of petroleum diesel and biodiesel by Q4 2008 and 2009, respectively, it expects to show revenue and earnings growth for the remainder of 2008 and beyond.
Highlights of Second Quarter Results:
-- Revenues of $3.1 million versus $2.5 million for Q1 2008
-- First half $5.6 million more than triple entire fiscal 2007 revenues
-- Net income of $108,000 compared to a loss of $133,000 for same period in 2007
"While we are extremely pleased with the record growth announced today and our progress to date, we believe that the balance of 2008 will see an exponential increase in both revenues and earnings," said Mamoru Saito, Chief Executive Officer of Amiworld. "With our plans to triple our production and grow our international oil trading and shipping business, the Company is poised to deliver results that we believe are extraordinary for such a young company."
The Company recently released guidance that projects significant growth during Q3 and Q4 of 2008, with estimated revenues of approximately $13 million and $24 million, respectively. If these projections are reached, of which there can be no assurance, the Company forecasts Q3 and Q4 estimated earnings of $1 million and $2.3 million, which, based on the current issued and outstanding shares of 23.1 million, are estimated to result in $0.04 EPS for Q3 and EPS of $0.10 for Q4.
