Brian Murray, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Pro-Trans stated, "We remain encouraged by the performance of Maple Leaf Loading Ltd., our primary operating subsidiary, despite a current environment of declining coal prices and lower production volumes. In spite of these developments, we anticipate that Q4 will provide similar performance to that quarter in 2011. We are confident that current conditions will not only demonstrate the company's resiliency but will be instrumental in uncovering further opportunities."

"We believe that the long term fundamentals remain strong for Canadian coal and other mining sectors. We continue to look towards further expansion of Maple Leaf's services throughout the Canadian mining community in order to fuel our growth objectives and diversify our commodity base.", he added.

Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 have been filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com along with Management's Discussion and Analysis of these financial statements.

Non-IFRS Measures

Earnings Before Interest Taxes Depreciation and Amortization ("EBITDA") is a measurement intended to provide useful insight into Results of Operations before financing costs, taxes, depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is not an earnings measure recognized by IFRS and does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS. Readers are cautioned that EBITDA should not be construed as an alternative to net income as determined in accordance with IFRS.

EBITDA is determined by beginning with earnings from operations as determined in accordance with GAAP then adding back any long term interest expense, provisions for taxes, depreciation and amortization included in earnings from operations. A reconciliation of net income to EBITDA is provided in the Management's Discussion and Analysis referenced above.
