EMERYVILLE, Calif. (November 7, 2019)

-- Amyris, Inc. (Nasdaq:AMRS), a leader in the development and production of sustainable ingredients for the Health & Wellness, Clean Beauty and Flavors & Fragrances markets, today announced preliminary unaudited financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019.

 

“We are pleased with our Q3 results,” said John Melo, President and CEO of Amyris. “We are continuing to double our product revenue year over year and we are on track to exceed our $150 million in revenue guidance for 2019. While capital constraints proved challenging, we were able to carefully manage the business to deliver on significant demand across most of our core products. These capital constraints should be lessened as a result of having achieved SEC filing and Nasdaq compliance, resolving our CVI Heights debt, expanding our gross margin, and continuing the revenue growth of our business over the coming quarters.”

 

Continued Melo, “Our Biossance brand is redefining consumer expectations for high performing, clean and sustainable skin care. Purecane™ sweetener and Pipette™ baby care are experiencing excellent early engagement with consumers and the early consumer product ratings for both of these new brands are outstanding. These brands provide clean, sustainable and highly effective products with ingredients produced by Amyris. Products such as these that deliver the best performance in their respective categories is where we excel and where we are capturing a market leadership position. Our fourth quarter has started strong and we are on track for a great finish to 2019.

 

“Our cannabinoids development program is advancing at a much better rate than we expected, and we will have product available for sampling and early formulation development early in 2020. We remain confident in our ability to commercially launch these cannabinoids in 2020, assuming regulatory conditions have been met. Upon commercial scale, this program should generate significant product revenue as well as royalties to Amyris.”

 

 

 

Key Highlights

 

Other operating and development highlights included:

 

·Successfully launched Pipette™ brand, the new standard in clean baby care with better-performing, safer products for moms and babies using ingredients from the purest sources.

 

·Biossance clean skin care brand has entered the Australian and New Zealand markets as global expansion continues. Biossance revenue growth is escalating based on growing geographic footprint and number of Sephora stores (now 219 out of 480 total North American stores carrying the full end cap of all product SKUs at quarter end). More recently, Sephora introduced Biossance to the South Korea and Thailand markets furthering the brand’s continued geographic expansion and growth opportunity.

 

·Cannabinoids development progressing better than expected with CBD ahead of target delivery with anticipated commercialization of both CBD and a second unnamed (due to partner’s competitive considerations) cannabinoid molecule, subject to regulatory clearance, available for commercialization in 2020.

 

·Significantly expanded collaboration agreement with Yifan of China.

 

·Closed on financings to support working capital and revenue growth as well as agreement to resolve the CVI Heights unsecured convertible senior notes debt.

 

 

Financial Performance (preliminary unaudited)

 

Third Quarter 2019

 

·GAAP revenue for the third quarter of 2019 was $35.0 million, compared with $14.3 million for the third quarter of 2018.

·Sales, general and administrative expenses were $33.3 million for the third quarter of 2019 compared with $27.2 million for year-ago period, primarily reflecting Biossance growth and an increase in headcount as well as certain one-time expenses. Research and development expenses of $19.0 million for the quarter were up from $16.4 million for the third quarter of 2018 due to increased R&D costs for product development connected to the increase in collaboration revenue over 2018.

 

 

 

·GAAP net loss attributable to Amyris common stockholders for the third quarter of 2019 was $53.2 million, or $0.51 per basic and diluted share, compared with a GAAP net loss attributable to Amyris common stockholders for the third quarter of 2018 of $76.8 million, or $1.26 per basic and diluted share.

 

·Non-GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2019 was $46.4 million, or $0.45 per basic share. This compared with a non-GAAP net loss of $46.7 million, or $0.77 per basic share for the third quarter of 2018.

FINANCIAL RESULTS AND NON-GAAP INFORMATION

 

To supplement our financial results and guidance presented on a GAAP basis, we use non-GAAP measures that we believe are helpful in understanding our results. These non-GAAP measures are among the factors management uses in planning and forecasting future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management’s internal comparisons to Amyris’s historical performance as well as comparisons to the operating results of other companies. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow for greater transparency into the indicators used by management to understand, manage, and evaluate our business and make operating decisions. Our non-GAAP financial measures include the following:

 

Non-GAAP net income (loss) is calculated as GAAP net income/loss excluding impairment, stock-based compensation expense, gain on divestitures, gains and losses from changes in the fair value of derivatives, debt extinguishment costs, and depreciation and amortization.

 

Non-GAAP financial information is not prepared under a comprehensive set of accounting rules, and therefore, should only be read in conjunction with financial information reported under U.S. GAAP in order to understand Amyris’s operating performance. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures presented in this release, including non-GAAP net income (loss), to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is provided in the tables attached to this press release.

Amyris will discuss these results and provide a business update in a conference call scheduled for 4:30 p.m. ET (1:30 p.m. PT) today. Investors may access the call by dialing (877) 870-4263. Participants should ask to be joined to the Amyris, Inc. call.
