OMAHA, Neb., Feb. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Green Plains Inc. (NASDAQ:GPRE) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter of 2017. Net income attributable to the company was $46.6 million, or $0.99 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2017 compared with net income of $18.7 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, for the same period in 2016. The company recorded a tax benefit of $63.9 million inclusive of a revaluation of deferred tax liabilities under the new U.S. corporate tax laws. Revenues were $921.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2017 compared with $932.1 million for the same period last year.

“Our non-ethanol segments reported strong performance in 2017 with $155 million of EBITDA,” commented Todd Becker, president and chief executive officer. “Our Food and Ingredients segment led the way with approximately $50 million of EBITDA, which was more than double what we reported last year, highlighting the success of our diversification strategy. This growth was driven by a full year of results from Fleischmann’s Vinegar and the expansion of Green Plains Cattle. We expect an even stronger 2018 from these segments. We also had a strong quarter and finish to the year by the Ag and Energy segment, led by our merchant activities in natural gas.”

Green Plains produced a record 340.8 million gallons of ethanol during the fourth quarter of 2017, compared with 334.2 million gallons for the same period in 2016. The consolidated ethanol crush margin was $26.8 million, or $0.08 per gallon, for the fourth quarter of 2017, compared with $81.6 million, or $0.24 per gallon, for the same period in 2016. The consolidated ethanol crush margin is the ethanol production segment’s operating income before depreciation and amortization, which includes corn oil production, plus intercompany storage, transportation and other fees, net of related expenses.

“Ethanol margins were weak in the fourth quarter as growth in export demand started to take hold and industry stocks remained high,” Becker added. “As a result, we have lowered our ethanol production rate in the first quarter. We believe margins will show improvement as we move into the second quarter, led by robust global demand and stronger domestic demand compared to last year. We believe the U.S. will export record volumes again in 2018 as countries around the world continue to take advantage of the economic benefits of ethanol and blend more into their finished gasoline. The margins for U.S. blenders are the best we have seen since 2014 as wholesale ethanol prices continue to average 40 cents to 50 cents lower than wholesale gasoline with no cheaper competing source of octane.”

Revenues attributable to the company were $3.6 billion for the year ended Dec. 31, 2017, compared with $3.4 billion for the same period in 2016. Net income attributable to the company for the year ended Dec. 31, 2017, was $61.1 million, or $1.47 per diluted share, compared with net income of $10.7 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, for the same period in 2016. Excluding the impact of the debt refinancing costs and R&D tax credits, reported in the third quarter of 2017, and revaluation of deferred tax liabilities in the fourth quarter of 2017, net loss attributable to the company was $33.6 million for 2017, or $(0.86) per diluted share.

“We continue to focus on improving the business through operational efficiency and diversification of earnings,” said Becker. “Looking forward, we will focus our growth capital in the Food and Ingredients segment and downstream terminal business through our investment and ownership in Green Plains Partners. Our new export terminal in Beaumont, Texas loaded its first export shipment in December and has since loaded eight more vessels originated almost exclusively from our own ethanol production. We expect to offer our interest in Beaumont to the partnership in the next 120 days and believe this terminal will be a key asset that handles the growing export demand for U.S. ethanol. At the same time, domestic ethanol demand should be positively impacted by expanding blends as there are now more than 1,300 stations across 29 states selling E15 and increasing every day.”

Full Year Highlights

  • In March 2017, Green Plains Cattle purchased a 30,000-head cattle feeding operation located approximately 20 miles from Green Plains’ Hereford, Texas ethanol facility.

  • On April 28, 2017, Green Plains Cattle amended its senior secured asset-based revolving credit facility to finance the expanded working capital requirements for its cattle feeding operations. The amendment increased the maximum commitment from $100 million to $200 million until July 31, 2017, when it was increased again to $300 million. The maturity date was extended from Oct. 31, 2017, to April 30, 2020.
  • On May 16, 2017, Green Plains Cattle completed the acquisition of two cattle feeding operations from Cargill Cattle Feeders, LLC for approximately $37.2 million, excluding working capital. The transaction, supported by a long-term supply agreement with Cargill Meat Solutions, included feed yards located in Leoti, Kan. and Eckley, Colo. and added capacity of 155,000 head to the company’s operations.
  • During the second quarter, Green Plains entered into privately negotiated agreements with holders, on behalf of certain beneficial owners, of the company’s 3.25% Convertible Senior Notes due 2018. Under these agreements, the company exchanged approximately 2.8 million shares of its common stock and $8.5 million in cash for approximately $56.3 million in aggregate principal amount of the 2018 notes. The company incurred a non-cash charge of $1.3 million, before taxes, related to the debt extinguishment.
  • On July 28, 2017, Green Plains’ wholly owned subsidiary, Green Plains Trade, amended its senior secured asset-based revolving credit agreement to reduce the interest rate spreads, increase inventory advance rates and expand eligible inventory locations and commodities. The amendment increased the maximum commitment from $150 million to $300 million and extended the maturity date from Nov. 26, 2019, to July 28, 2022.
  • On Aug. 29, 2017, Green Plains entered into a $500 million term loan agreement, which matures on Aug. 29, 2023, to refinance $405 million of existing debt. The term loan is guaranteed by the company and most of its subsidiaries and secured by substantially all of the company’s assets, including its 17 ethanol production facilities, vinegar production facilities and a second priority lien on the assets secured under the revolving credit facilities at Green Plains Trade, Green Plains Cattle and Green Plains Grain.
  • On Sept. 11, 2017, John Neppl joined the company as chief financial officer of Green Plains and Green Plains Partners, replacing Jerry Peters, who retired. Mr. Peters continues as a member of the board of directors of Green Plains Holdings LLC, the general partner of Green Plains Partners. Mr. Neppl most recently served as chief financial officer of The Gavilon Group, LLC and brings extensive experience in commodity processing and trading businesses.
  • On Oct. 27, 2017, Green Plains Partners upsized its revolving credit facility by $40.0 million, from $155.0 million to $195.0 million, accessing a portion of the $100.0 million accordion in place on the facility.
  • On Nov. 16, 2017, Green Plains Cattle amended its senior secured asset-based revolving credit facility with a group of lenders led by Bank of the West and ING Capital LLC. The amendment increased the revolving commitment under the credit facility from $300 million to $425 million with an additional $75.0 million available accordion feature.
  • In December 2017, the company’s joint venture with Jefferson Gulf Coast Energy Partners, JGP Energy Partners, completed Phase I of its intermodal export and import fuels terminal in Beaumont, Texas and loaded multiple vessels with ethanol bound for international destinations. Green Plains plans to offer its 50% interest in the joint venture to the partnership during the first half of 2018.
  • In December 2017, Syngenta and Green Plains jointly announced a partnership to expand the use of Enogen corn as a portion of the feedstock across Green Plains’ 1.5-billion-gallon ethanol production platform.
  • During the year, the company repurchased 394,677 shares of common stock for approximately $6.7 million.

Results of Operations
Consolidated revenues decreased $11.1 million for the three months ended Dec. 31, 2017, compared with the same period in 2016. Revenues were impacted by lower average realized prices for ethanol, partially offset by an increase in revenues related to the cattle feedlot acquisitions during the first and second quarters of 2017.

Operating income decreased $48.6 million for the three months ended Dec. 31, 2017, compared with the same period last year primarily due to lower ethanol margins.

An income tax benefit of $63.9 million was recorded in the fourth quarter of 2017, including a $52.8 million benefit related to the revaluation of deferred tax liabilities under the new U.S. corporate tax laws.

Earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) for the fourth quarter of 2017 was $36.1 million compared with $83.5 million for the same period last year, driven almost entirely by a decrease in ethanol margins slightly offset by better performance in agribusiness and energy services and lower corporate expenses.

Segment Information
We report the financial and operating performance for the following four operating segments: (1) ethanol production, which includes ethanol, distillers grains and corn oil production, (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 cattle feeding, vinegar production and food-grade corn oil operations 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 earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, or EBITDA, segment EBITDA and consolidated ethanol crush margin to measure the company’s financial performance and to internally manage its businesses. 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 EBITDA, segment EBITDA and consolidated ethanol crush margins may not be comparable with similarly titled measures of another company.

To supplement our condensed consolidated statements of operations presented in accordance with GAAP, the company has provided non-GAAP adjusted financial measures of operating results that exclude certain items. Basic and diluted earnings per share attributable to Green Plains are presented in the Reconciliation to Non-GAAP Adjusted Financial Measures as reported on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis related to the impact of the expenses for refinancing and expanding the company’s term loan, net R&D credits related to qualifying activities and tax reform credits. Management believes including these additional measures may enhance the investor’s overall understanding of the company’s ongoing operations. These measures should not be considered alternatives to net income or segment operating income, which are determined in accordance with GAAP.
