Aemetis, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results
 
CUPERTINO, Calif. – August 9, 2018 - Aemetis, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMTX), an advanced renewable fuels and biochemicals company, today announced its financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018.
 
During the second quarter of 2018, revenues increased $4.3 million and gross margins increased by $1.1 million compared to the second quarter of 2017. Similarly, during the first half of 2018, revenues increased $15.7 million and gross margins increased by $3.5 million compared to the first half of 2017.
 
“Record gasoline demand in the second quarter helped drive expanded demand and increased pricing for ethanol,” stated Eric McAfee, Chairman and CEO of Aemetis. “In addition to a 5% increase in the volume of ethanol produced by our California plant in Q2 2018 compared to the same quarter a year ago, the price of wet distillers grains increased by 34% and the price of glycerin increased by 28% compared to Q2 2017.”
 
“Aemetis also achieved major milestones in the construction and operation of a pretreatment unit at our India plant to produce high value distilled biodiesel from lower cost feedstock. We are now completing utility upgrades at our India plant to fully utilize plant capacity to meet expanding customer demand from India as well as foreign customers.”
 
“The Riverbank cellulosic ethanol project achieved significant progress during Q2 2018, including engineering, environmental permitting and EPC project milestones. The value of California Low Carbon Fuel Standard credits rose steadily from $110 in late February to $184 per credit on June 30, 2018, significantly increasing the value of the low carbon advanced ethanol that is planned to be produced by the Riverbank plant from orchard and other agricultural waste.”
 
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 June 30, 2018
 
Revenues were $45.0 million for the second quarter of 2018 compared to $40.8 million for the second quarter of 2017, driven by an increase in ethanol sales volumes from 15.6 million gallons to 16.4 million gallons and by stronger wet distillers grain and glycerin demand and pricing. The gross margin for the second quarter of 2018 increased to $2.8 million, compared to a gross margin of $1.7 million during the second quarter of 2017.
 
Selling, general and administrative expenses were $3.6 million in the second quarter of 2018, compared to $3.3 million in the second quarter of 2017.
 
Operating loss was $0.9 million for the second quarter of 2018, a reduction from the operating loss of $1.7 million for the second quarter of 2017.
 
Interest expense during the second quarter of 2018 was $5.4 million, compared to $4.3 million during the second quarter of 2017.
 
Net loss was $6.2 million for the second quarter of 2018, compared to a net loss of $6.0 million for the second quarter of 2017 due to higher interest expense.
 
Cash at the end of the second quarter of 2018 increased to $1.1 million from $0.4 million at the end of 2017.

Revenues were $88.0 million for the first half of 2018, an increase of $15.7 million compared to $72.3 million for the first half of 2017. This strong increase in revenues was driven by increases in ethanol sales volumes from 29.1 million gallons to 32.4 million gallons and by higher wet distillers grain and glycerin demand and pricing. Gross profit for the first half of 2018 was $4.6 million, a significant increase from $1.1 million during the first half of 2017.
 
Selling, general and administrative expenses were $7.4 million during the first half of 2018, compared to $6.6 million during the first half of 2017.

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 between companies.
