Press Release - Mercator Transport Group Corporation

Mercator is definitely a penny stock. However, Mercator takes the edge of a penny stock without the risk normally associated to penny stocks. This is because unlike other penny stocks that are on the “hit or miss” mode, we are an economical reality that bills hundreds of invoices everyday, to almost a 1000 customers throughout the planet, that collects 50 M$ receivables per annum, pays 4 M$ salaries, and invests 500 K$ to 1M$ every year to grow the service base, to offer always more to customers... - Jean Pierre Apelian (GMT) (Interview published February 11, 2011)

Non-GAAP measure, as defined in Mercator Transport’s MD&A.

Mercator Transport shows more than $11.5 million in quarterly revenue for a fourth consecutive quarter, passing the $12 million mark in the last quarter, representing a 27.6% increase compared to the same period a year earlier. For the first nine months of 2010-2011, Mercator Transport revenue reached $35.7 million, a 73% increase compared to the first nine months of last year.

Mercator Transport posted a $345,000 EBITDA1 loss, as well as a net loss of $210,000 ($0.006 per share) for the third quarter of 2010-2011, compared to EBITDA1 of $12,000 and net loss of $61,000 ($0.002 per share) for the same period a year earlier. The Corporation's Canadian transportation and distribution activities continue to generate sustained profitability, whereas newly created subsidiaries and latest international acquisitions give rise to start up phase costs which are necessary to their integration.

During the third quarter of 2010-2011, Mercator Transport hired key staff in a number of sectors, with the objective of providing the corporation with the multinational operational and control structure which has become necessary, considering the needs created by international growth.

"We are pleased to see that the businesses we have recently acquired or created internationally are contributing to Mercator Transport's revenue growth", said Mr. Jean-Pierre Apelian, President and CEO.
