Dayton, Ohio, (March 26, 2014) -- REX American Resources Corporation (NYSE: REX) today reported record financial results for its fiscal 2013 fourth quarter (“Q4 ’13”) and year ended January 31, 2014. REX management will host a conference call and webcast today at 11:00 a.m. ET.

REX American Resources’ Q4 ‘13 results principally reflect its alternative energy segment interests in seven ethanol production facilities. The operations of One Earth Energy, LLC (“One Earth”) and NuGen Energy, LLC (“NuGen”) are consolidated, while those of its five remaining plants are reported as equity in income of unconsolidated ethanol affiliates.

 

REX’s Q4 ‘13 net sales and revenue were $146.1 million, compared with $174.3 million in Q4 ’12. Primarily reflecting strong ethanol crush spread margins in Q4’ 13, the Company’s gross profit rose to $26.3 million, from a gross loss of $2.6 million in the prior year period, which was impacted by compressed ethanol margins related to corn prices. Reflecting the healthy ethanol industry environment, Q4 ‘13 equity in income of unconsolidated ethanol affiliates increased to $7.6 million, compared with a $0.9 million loss in Q4 ‘12. The improved quarterly gross profit and income of unconsolidated ethanol affiliates resulted in Q4 ’13 net income from continuing operations before income taxes and non-controlling interests of $27.8 million, compared with an $8.3 million loss in Q4 ’12.

 

Net income attributable to REX shareholders in Q4 ’13 rose to $15.9 million, compared with a $4.4 million loss in Q4 ‘12, while Q4 ’13 diluted net income per share attributable to REX common shareholders was a record $1.95 per share, compared to a $0.54 per share loss in Q4 ’12. Per share results in Q4 ‘13 and Q4 ‘12 are based on 8,129,000 and 8,156,000 diluted weighted average shares outstanding, respectively.

 

Net sales and revenue for the twelve months ended January 31, 2014 rose to a record $666.1 million, from $656.6 million in fiscal 2012, while gross profit for fiscal 2013 increased over four-fold to $64.2 million, from $13.6 million in fiscal 2012. Fiscal 2013 equity in income of unconsolidated ethanol affiliates also increased substantially to $17.2 million, compared with $0.6 million in fiscal 2012. These factors resulted in fiscal 2013 income from continuing operations before income taxes and non-controlling interests of $59.8 million, compared with a $3.8 million loss in fiscal 2012.

This growth resulted in record fiscal 2013 net income attributable to REX shareholders of $35.1 million, compared with a $2.3 million loss in fiscal 2012, while diluted net income per share attributable to REX common shareholders rose to a record $4.29 in fiscal 2013, compared to a $0.28 per share loss in 2012. Per share results for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2014 and January 31, 2013, are based on 8,180,000 and 8,272,000 diluted weighted average shares outstanding, respectively.

 

REX CEO, Stuart Rose, commented, “Our record fourth quarter and full year financial results mark the conclusion of a successful year for the Company. The fourth quarter results highlight the benefit of the strong U.S. corn harvest, the efficiency of our plants and our focus on costs and margins.

 

“We consider our operating structure and financial model to be amongst the best in the industry, based on the ICM technology deployed at all of our plants, the attractive valuations at which we acquired them and their strategic locations. Our record fiscal 2013 results further strengthened our already robust financial position as cash and cash equivalents of over $105 million at January 31, 2014 rose more than 50% compared to fiscal 2012 year-end levels. During fiscal 2013, we reduced consolidated plant level debt by approximately $31 million, and given our current cash position we expect to have additional opportunities to reduce debt and further lower interest expense, which declined by approximately 26% in the fourth quarter and by almost 20% in fiscal 2013.”

 

Balance Sheet and Share Repurchase Program

At January 31, 2014, REX had cash and cash equivalents of $105.1 million, $63.3 million of which was at the parent company and $41.8 million of which was at its consolidated ethanol production facilities. This compares with cash and cash equivalents of $69.1 million at January 31, 2013, $47.7 million of which was at the parent company and $21.4 million of which was at its consolidated ethanol production facilities.

 

REX repurchased 14,135 common shares in Q4 ‘13 at an average price per share of $28.80 and repurchased a total of 137,015 common shares in fiscal 2013 at an average price per share of $25.44.

The Company sold six former retail store locations and one former distribution center during fiscal 2013. The current net book value for the Company’s remaining real estate holdings is approximately $4.6 million. The real estate segment revenue reflects rental income derived from these sites.
