Green Plains Reports Third Quarter 2019 Financial Results

9 Days ago

Results for the Third Quarter of 2019:

  • Net loss attributable to the company of $39.0 million, or $(1.06) per diluted share
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $(13.4) million
  • Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash of $254.0 million
  • As of Sept. 30, 2019, the Company is net debt zero excluding working capital financing and non-recourse partnership debt
  • Repurchased approximately 1.7 million shares totaling $16.0 million
  • Fourth quarter 2019 ethanol EBITDA margins have turned positive
  • Green Plains Inc. Board of Directors approves an additional $100 million authorization to repurchase shares  

OMAHA, Neb., Nov. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Green Plains Inc. (NASDAQ:GPRE) today announced financial results for the third quarter of 2019. Net loss attributable to the company was $39.0 million, or $(1.06) per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2019 compared with net loss of $12.5 million, or $(0.31) per diluted share, for the same period in 2018. Revenues were $632.4 million for the third quarter of 2019 compared with $789.0 million for the same period last year.

“As expected, our third quarter results were attributable to a continued weak ethanol margin environment that began to show improvement in late September,” commented Todd Becker, president and chief executive officer. “Based on the current environment, we have seen ethanol margins turn positive for our platform, which should result in a positive outlook for cash flow from operations for the fourth quarter. While margins remain volatile, we have seen some industry rationalization taking place and our balance sheet strength and strategic initiatives have put us in a very good position to take advantage of the recent expansion in ethanol margins.”

“During the quarter we made significant strides both strategically and operationally. We were successful in selling a 50% share of our cattle feeding business to a group of strategic investors enabling us to take the business off balance sheet and provide investors better clarity of our financial strength,” said Becker. “More importantly, our operating expense per gallon continues to decline as we move into the expanded construction phase of our project 24 and operate at higher utilization rates. Finally, consistent with our previous messaging, we supported our share value by investing in substantial open market share repurchases during the third quarter and the beginning of the fourth quarter totaling approximately $21.8 million for 2.2 million shares.”

Green Plains Inc. today announced that its board of directors approved an increase in the current share repurchase authorization by $100 million during October of 2019. The authorization now totals $200 million, with approximately $119 million available under the repurchase program authorized by the Board of Directors in 2014.

Green Plains Inc. is also announcing today that it has signed a definitive agreement to sell its 50% joint venture interest in JGP Energy Partners LLC to its partner, Jefferson Energy Holdings LLC, a subsidiary of Fortress Transportation and Infrastructure Investors LLC for $29 million. The transaction is expected to close on or before December 15, 2019. “Based on current energy infrastructure markets, and our ability to secure long term competitive elevation agreements at third party terminals, selling our interest in this terminal will allow us to re-deploy capital into our current projects and achieve higher returns for our shareholders,” commented Becker.

“We expect commissioning of our protein project in Shenandoah, IA late in the 4th quarter with full production rates approximately 60 days thereafter. More importantly, we have signed a term sheet with one of the premier pet food raw material processors and suppliers in the industry. Initially, this customer will guarantee purchase of 60% of Shenandoah’s production, priced at a premium to high protein soymeal prices and we continue negotiations for the remainder of the production along with the potential for a second location to be named,” stated Becker. “This, we believe, validates the expected returns of the project which gives us the confidence to continue to build out the high protein technology throughout the platform.”

“We completed the first Project 24 upgrade at our Wood River, NE ethanol facility and the plant is ramping up to its operating capacity this week,” said Becker. “This upgrade is transformational in terms of operating cost per gallon related to the base technology of the plant. This location will now be one of our lowest operating costs plants per gallon and clearly puts this plant in the top 10% of all plants in the industry. This investment in Wood River, more importantly, reduces its carbon intensity score in order to take advantage of markets that pay premiums for low carbon fuels. We continue on our path to 24 cents a gallon by the middle of 2020 and believe we might achieve lower costs based on the preliminary results of the first project.”

“We are encouraged that the recent announcements by the EPA and the potential trade deal with China will turn what we believe could be tail winds for the ethanol industry,” concluded Becker. “With that said, for the first time in over a year, we are experiencing positive ethanol margins in the current period. While cautious in our guidance, it is nice to see our projects over the last two years have put the company in the position to have these discussions.”

Third Quarter Highlights and Recent Developments

  • On September 9, 2019, we announced that we and a group of investment funds that include AGR Partners, StepStone Group, and several of their respective affiliates, had formed a joint venture to own and operate Green Plains Cattle Company LLC. As a part of the joint venture, these investment funds have purchased 50% of the membership interests of Green Plains Cattle Company from Green Plains Inc. for approximately $77 million plus closing adjustments. The transaction was signed on September 6, 2019 with an effective date of September 1, 2019.
     
  • During the third quarter, the company repurchased 1.7 million shares of common stock for $16.0 million. For 2019 year-to-date, Green Plains Inc. has repurchased approximately 5.4 million shares for approximately $61.6 million.             

Revenues attributable to the company were $1.7 billion for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2019, compared with $2.4 billion for the same period in 2018. With the disposition of our cattle operations, there were $638.1 million and $652.9 million of revenues for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018, respectively, that are now included in discontinued operations. Net loss for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2019, was $127.1 million, or $(3.25) per diluted share, compared with net loss of $37.6 million, or $(0.94) per diluted share, for the same period in 2018.

Results of Operations
Green Plains produced 238.5 million gallons of ethanol during the third quarter of 2019, compared with 304.8 million gallons for the same period in 2018. The consolidated ethanol crush margin was $(15.4) million, or $(0.06) per gallon, for the third quarter of 2019, compared with $32.3 million, or $0.11 per gallon, for the same period in 2018. The consolidated ethanol crush margin is the ethanol production segment’s operating income (loss) before depreciation and amortization, which includes corn oil, plus intercompany storage, transportation and other fees, net of related expenses.

Consolidated revenues decreased $156.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019 compared with the same period in 2018 primarily due to the disposition of three ethanol plants and the sale of Fleischmann’s Vinegar during the fourth quarter of 2018.

Operating income decreased $38.6 million and adjusted EBITDA decreased $45.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019 compared with the same period last year primarily due to decreased margins on ethanol production as well as the disposition of Fleischmann’s Vinegar during the fourth quarter of 2018. Interest expense decreased $9.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019, compared with the same period in 2018, primarily due to the repayment of the $500 million senior secured term loan during the fourth quarter of 2018. Income tax benefit was $12.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019 compared with $15.0 million for the same period in 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA, which is earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, plus adjustments related to operational results of Green Plains Cattle prior to its disposition which are recorded as discontinued operations and our proportional share of EBITDA adjustments of our equity method investees, for the third quarter of 2019 was $(13.4) million compared with $32.3 million for the same period last year.

Segment Information
The company reports the financial and operating performance for the following four operating segments: (1) ethanol production, which includes the production of ethanol, distillers grains and corn oil, (2) agribusiness and energy services, which includes grain handling and storage, commodity marketing and merchant trading for company-produced and third-party ethanol, distillers grains, corn oil, natural gas and other commodities, (3) food and ingredients, which includes food-grade corn oil operations and included vinegar production until the sale of Fleischmann’s Vinegar Company, Inc. during the fourth quarter of 2018 and (4) partnership, which includes fuel storage and transportation services. Intercompany fees charged to the ethanol production segment for storage and logistics services, grain procurement and product sales are included in the partnership and agribusiness and energy services segments and eliminated upon consolidation. Third-party costs of grain consumed and revenues from product sales are reported directly in the ethanol production segment.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Management uses adjusted EBITDA, segment EBITDA and consolidated ethanol crush margins to measure the company’s financial performance and to internally manage its businesses. EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization excluding the amortization of right-of-use assets and debt issuance costs. Adjusted EBITDA includes adjustments related to operational results of Green Plains Cattle prior to its disposition which are recorded as discontinued operations and our proportional share of EBITDA adjustments of our equity method investees. Management believes these measures provide useful information to investors for comparison with peer and other companies. These measures should not be considered alternatives to net income or segment operating income, which are determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). These non-GAAP calculations may vary from company to company. Accordingly, the company’s computation of adjusted EBITDA, segment EBITDA and consolidated ethanol crush margins may not be comparable with similarly titled measures of another company.
