BOULDER CITY, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 09/23/16 -- Amerityre Corporation (OTCQB: AMTY) today reported earnings of approximately $29,000, before preferred share dividends, for the fiscal fourth quarter of 2016.

"Our fourth quarter results reflect the continued challenging business environment we face in our target markets, particularly the agricultural market," said Michael F. Sullivan, Chief Executive Officer. "We continue to pursue new opportunities in market segments where we have a competitive advantage while controlling our costs to reflect the current economic realities our business faces today. Our recent fiscal 4th quarter is our second consecutive profitable quarter, another milestone for Amerityre as it continues to establish itself as a manufacturer of premium closed cell foam and elastomer tires."

Amerityre's fourth quarter 2016 sales were approximately $0.9 million, down from $1.2 million a year ago. Net income of approximately $29,000 for the quarter was down from a quarterly profit of approximately $39,000 a year ago.

Amerityre engages in the research and development, manufacturing, and sale of polyurethane tires. We believe that we have developed unique polyurethane formulations that allow us to make products with superior performance characteristics in the areas of, including abrasion resistance, energy efficiency and load-bearing capabilities, in comparison to conventional rubber tires. We also believe that our manufacturing processes are more energy efficient than the traditional rubber tire manufacturing processes, in part because our polyurethane compounds do not require the multiple processing steps, extreme heat, and high pressure that are necessary to cure rubber. Using our polyurethane technologies, we believe tires can be produced which last longer, are less susceptible to failure and are friendly to the environment. We are concentrating on three segments of the tire market: closed-cell polyurethane foam tires, polyurethane elastomer industrial tires and agricultural tires. Our most recent activities in these areas are summarized below:


Our polyurethane material technology is based on two proprietary formulations; closed-cell polyurethane foam, a lightweight material with high load-bearing capabilities for low duty cycle applications, and Elastothane®, a high performance polyurethane elastomer with high load-bearing capabilities for high duty applications. We are concentrating on three segments of the tire market: closed-cell polyurethane foam tires, polyurethane elastomer industrial tires and tires for agricultural applications.

Closed-Cell Polyurethane Foam Tires

We currently manufacture closed-cell polyurethane foam tires for bicycles, hand trucks, lawn and garden, wheelbarrow, personnel carriers, and medical mobility products. Our closed-cell polyurethane foam products are often referred to as flat-free because they have no inner tube, do not require inflation and will not go flat even if punctured. Our closed-cell polyurethane foam tires are mounted on a wheel rim in much the same way as a pneumatic tire. Our closed-cell polyurethane foam products are virtually maintenance free, non-toxic, provide extended tire life, and offer superior energy efficiency compared to rubber based tires. Closed cell foam tires and components accounted for 53% of fiscal 2016 revenues.

Polyurethane Elastomer Industrial Tires

We have developed solid polyurethane industrial tires made of Elastothane®. We believe our tires are superior to rubber tires as they are non-marking, more energy efficient, carry greater load weight, operate in lower temperature environments and have longer service life. We currently produce and sell over 20 sizes for Class 1, 4 and 5 forklifts, and recently reintroduced a new forklift tire formulation in Q3 FY2016. During Q4 FY2016 we developed a new polyurethane elastomer tire for scissor lifts, which we have begun to introduce into the market. Elastomer industrial tires accounted for 1% of fiscal 2016 revenues.

Agricultural Tires

Amerityre has developed three products for the agricultural tire market, one used in irrigation and two used in planting/harvesting. These products have successfully field tested and we developed strategies to increase the distribution of these products into the market. Agricultural tires accounted for 46% of fiscal 2016 revenues.
