Aemetis, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2020 Financial Results
CUPERTINO, Calif. – May 14, 2020 -
Aemetis, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMTX), an advanced renewable fuels and biochemicals company, today announced its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2020.
“During the first quarter of 2020, Aemetis continued to make steady progress despite significant challenges related to Covid 19 restrictions,” said Eric McAfee, Chairman and CEO of Aemetis. “Progress continued on the carbon reduction and revenue expansion projects to drive significant revenue increases and positive earnings. In our dairy renewable natural gas project, we completed and tested the first two dairy digesters and began constructing the four mile pipeline to connect the two dairies to the Keyes ethanol plant; we completed the construction and began commercial operation of the carbon dioxide capture system at our Keyes plant to supply the newly-built Messer CO2 plant under a long term contract; and we made progress toward commencing construction of our below zero carbon content California waste wood ethanol biorefinery. Importantly, all of the EB-5 investors in our current offering were granted National Interest Expedite approval to process their applications at the USCIS in approximately 90 days instead of up to three years which has significantly increased the number of interested investors.”
Today, Aemetis will host an earnings review call at 11:00 a.m. Pacific time (PT).

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) attributable to Aemetis, Inc. plus (to the extent deducted in calculating such net income) interest expense, loss on extinguishment, income tax expense, intangible and other amortization expense, accretion 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.
