OMAHA, Neb., Feb. 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Green Plains Inc. (NASDAQ:GPRE) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2021. Net loss attributable to the company for the fourth quarter was $9.6 million, or ($0.18) per diluted share compared to a net loss of $49.6 million or ($1.43) per diluted share, for the same period in 2020. Revenues were $802.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 compared with $478.8 million for the same period last year.

Commenting on the results, Green Plains’ President and Chief Executive Officer Todd Becker said,

“This past year was transformative for the company, firmly placing us on our path toward our 2024-25 strategic goals. Embedded in that vision, our strategy for the fourth quarter and through 2021 was to protect our balance sheet and mitigate risk on the capital we had raised earlier in the year. We hedged the fourth quarter before spot margins increased and generated $32 million in adjusted EBITDA, once again generating free cash flow. Our full year crush margin of $0.17 per gallon was in line with the daily average as our significant outperformance during the first half of 2021 helped level out this transition year. We ended the year with over $685 million in cash and marketable securities, allowing us to continue to deploy capital to strategic initiatives in our transformation plan.”

“We believe our asset utilization rate will continue to improve in 2022 as our locations begin to ramp toward full capacity with our last two plant efficiency upgrades on track to be completed in the first quarter. We anticipate higher utilization in preparation for increased Ultra-High Protein production at locations that are under construction. In the fourth quarter, we experienced supply chain and permitting delays at certain facilities, which impacted fuel alcohol production and also incurred grain bin damage at our York location which limited its production capacity of specialty alcohols.”

“Our transformation continues, with crucial milestones achieved across our four strategic pillars: Ultra-High Protein and value-added ingredients, renewable corn oil, clean sugar and decarbonization. During 2021, we announced our acquisition of Fluid Quip Technologies, established an industrial-scale clean sugar pilot operation and began construction on additional MSC installations. Our unwavering commitment to develop our biorefinery platform to maximize value and diversify cash flows is attracting capital and the top talent necessary to execute on our plan.”

“Global demand for protein and renewable corn oil continues to expand and we believe our high-value ingredient platform stands to benefit and deliver long-term stable contributions. Since our Wood River location began operation, we have seen additional demand for our products, driven by our increased scale and redundancy, further validating our investment thesis. During the first quarter of 2022, we expect to begin our full commercial-scale 60% protein trial and we are excited about the potential results. With four additional MSC locations expected to start up this year, including our first turnkey project, we believe we will begin to see the anticipated scale and impact of our platform.”

“The market remains strong for a clean sugar feedstock for industrial biotechnology, renewable chemicals and synthetic biology applications and our products continue to be successfully validated with potential co-location and supply offtake partners. We have begun engineering a novel dextrose production facility, and expect to break ground in the second half of the year. We believe 2022 is shaping up to be a true inflection point for our company and we are focused on executing on key transformation initiatives as we move through this year and beyond. We are in substantive discussions with potential partners in protein, corn oil, sugar and carbon and expect to make progress during the first half of 2022 that will be beneficial for the shareholders and stakeholders of Green Plains.”

Full Year Highlights and Recent Developments

  • Announced the acquisition of a majority stake in Fluid Quip Technologies
  • Committed eight facilities to Summit Carbon Solutions’ carbon capture and sequestration project
  • Began batch operations for the clean sugar project at the Innovation Center at York, Nebraska, producing dextrose to target applications in renewable chemicals and synthetic biology

Results of Operations
Green Plains produced 200.5 million gallons of ethanol during the fourth quarter of 2021, compared with 214.2 million gallons for the same period in 2020. The consolidated ethanol crush margin was $41.0 million, or $0.20 per gallon, for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared with $11.9 million, or $0.06 per gallon, for the same period in 2020. The consolidated ethanol crush margin is the ethanol production segment’s operating income before depreciation and amortization, which includes corn oil and Ultra-High Protein, plus intercompany storage, transportation, nonrecurring decommissioning costs and other fees, net of related expenses.

Consolidated revenues increased $323.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021, compared with the same period in 2020, primarily due to higher prices for ethanol, distillers grains and corn oil and increased trading revenues within our agribusiness and energy services segment.

Operating income increased $42.6 million and adjusted EBITDA increased $22.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021, compared with the same period in 2020, primarily due to increased margins on ethanol production. Interest expense decreased $3.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021, compared with the same period in 2020. Income tax expense was $4.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021, compared with $1.9 million income tax benefit for the same period in 2020.

Segment Information
The company reports the financial and operating performance for the following three operating segments: (1) ethanol production, which includes the production of ethanol, including industrial-grade alcohol, distillers grains, Ultra-High Protein 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, and (3) 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 change in right-of-use assets. Adjusted EBITDA includes adjustments related to our proportional share of EBITDA adjustments of our equity method investees, gains and losses related to the sale of assets, and noncash goodwill impairment. 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 U.S. 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.
