Aemetis, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2017 Financial Results
 
CUPERTINO, Calif. – May 11, 2017 -
Aemetis, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMTX), an advanced renewable fuels and biochemicals company, today announced its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2017.
 
"During the first quarter, ethanol revenues increased by 12% on higher ethanol volume and prices compared to the first quarter of 2016, but gross margins were negatively impacted by an increase in feedstock costs due to an unusually wet winter in California and the resulting higher rail costs," stated Eric McAfee, Chairman and CEO of Aemetis. "During the second quarter, rail costs have returned to more normal levels and ethanol margins have improved as corn prices remain moderated. Our business in India has entered a growth phase by recently winning a biodiesel supply contract with domestic Oil Marketing Companies in India, and we are finalizing an international biodiesel supply contract with a major oil company. These new customers are in addition to our existing bulk and fleet customers in India."
 
Today, Aemetis will host an earnings review call at 11:00 am Pacific (PT). For details on the call, visit: http://www.aemetis.com/investors/conference-call/
 
Financial Results for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2017
 
Revenues were $31.6 million for the first quarter of 2017, compared to $33.3 million for the first quarter of 2016. Increases in ethanol production and average selling prices resulted in an additional $1.9 million of revenue, which was offset by $3.6 million of lower volumes of biodiesel sales, resulting in lower revenues during the first quarter as compared to the same period in 2016. Gross loss for the first quarter of 2017 was $0.6 million, compared to gross profit of $2.1 million during the first quarter of 2016. During the first quarter, gross margins declined due to higher feedstock costs, principally from rail dislocation associated with wet winter weather in California and lower distillers grains prices.
 
 
 
 
Selling, general and administrative expenses were $3.3 million in the first quarter of 2017, compared to $3.0 million in the first quarter of 2016. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was driven by an increase in share based compensation compared to the same period of the prior year.
 
Operating loss was $4.0 million for the first quarter of 2017, compared to operating loss of $1.0 million for the same period in 2016.
 
Net loss was $8.5 million for the first quarter of 2017, compared to net loss of $5.1 million for the first quarter of 2016.
 
Adjusted EBITDA loss for the first quarter of 2017 was $2.4 million, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $250 thousand for the same period in 2016.
 
Cash at the end of the first quarter was $231 thousand compared to $1,486 thousand at the close of 2016.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION
 
We have provided non-GAAP measures as a supplement to financial results based on GAAP. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures is included in the accompanying supplemental data. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income/(loss) plus (to the extent deducted in calculating such net income) interest expense, loss on extinguishment, income tax expense, intangible and other amortization expense, depreciation expense and share-based compensation expense.
 
Adjusted EBITDA is not calculated in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income/(loss), operating income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP or to cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities as an indicator of cash flows or as a measure of liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA is presented solely as a supplemental disclosure because management believes that it is a useful performance measure that is widely used within the industry in which we operate. In addition, management uses Adjusted EBITDA for reviewing financial results and for budgeting and planning purposes. EBITDA measures are not calculated in the same manner by all companies and, accordingly, may not be an appropriate measure for comparison.
