Gevo Reports Third Quarter 2019 Financial Results

November 12, 2019

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Nov. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gevo, Inc. (NASDAQ: GEVO) today announced financial results for the third quarter of 2019 and recent corporate highlights.

Recent Corporate Highlights

-- Gevo now has approximately 6-7 million gallons per year (“MGPY”) of offtake under contract out of its planned minimum sized 10MGPY hydrocarbon plant, up from approximately 5MGPY. -- On November 5, 2019, Gevo announced it signed a Development Agreement with Blocksize Capital, a leading Distributed Ledger Technology (“DLT,” commonly referred to as “Blockchain”) company based in Germany. Originally developed as an underlying branch of the blockchain technology, DLT is an immutable tool that allows tracking of data with a product and the transactions associated with the product. Gevo and Blocksize discovered that it is possible to attach the key metrics for sustainability to gallons of fuel, and therefore enable a “sustainability” assurance that has not yet been seen. The data associated with certain key metrics for measuring sustainability are suitable for being digitized through blockchain and could lead to tokenization of those attributes. -- On November 4, 2019, Gevo announced that it made the winning bid in a competitive process conducted by the City of Seattle to provide renewable gasoline to its fleet vehicles. Gevo has been awarded a four year contract, with three two-year extensions, to supply at minimum 200,000 gallons/year of renewable isobutanol and 600,000 gallons/year renewable isooctane to the City of Seattle to displace fossil-based gasoline. -- On September 16, 2019, Gevo announced that it has secured the supply of 5.0 MW of fully renewable electricity to power its advanced biofuels production facility located in Luverne, Minnesota (the “Luverne Facility”) from an affiliate of Juhl Energy. The electricity generated from the wind will be wired directly to the Luverne Facility/Agri-Energy, LLC, enabling Gevo to claim the renewable benefit of a lower carbon intensity score under the Low Carbon Fuel Standard. Gevo expects this new source of wind-powered electricity to commence in the first quarter of 2020. -- On September 10, 2019, Gevo announced the signing of a Joint Development Agreement (“JDA”) with Leaf Resources. Leaf is a Queensland, Australia-based company and one of the world’s leading companies in converting plant biomass into industrial sugars. The JDA is to explore the potential use of cellulosic derived sugars and glycerol from Leaf and the ability to convert these to hydrocarbon molecules useful as fuels or chemicals. -- On September 4, 2019, Gevo announced that it had developed proprietary, breakthrough processes that convert either low-carbon isobutanol or low-value “fusel oils,” a mixture of alcohols that are byproducts from fermentation processes such as alcohol production, into renewable diesel. This renewable diesel is expected to compete head-to-head on price with natural and petroleum-based equivalents, while reducing particulates and CO2 emissions. -- On September 3, 2019, Gevo announced that it supplied sustainable aviation fuel (“SAF”) to support an Avfuel Corporation demonstration event to raise awareness on the viability and safety of SAF. Over two days of demonstrations, Avfuel supplied 7,300 gallons of ASTM D1655 standard SAF to fixed-based operator Jackson Hole Aviation for operators flying to and from the airfield during the demonstration days.

2019 Third Quarter Financial Highlights

-- Ends the quarter with cash and cash equivalents of $20.9 million -- Revenue of $6.1 million for the quarter -- Loss from operations of ($8.0) million for the quarter -- Non-GAAP cash EBITDA loss1 of ($5.8) million for the quarter -- Net loss per share of ($0.66) for the quarter -- Non-GAAP adjusted net loss per share2 of ($0.66) for the quarter

Commenting on the third quarter of 2019 and recent corporate events, Dr. Patrick R. Gruber, Gevo’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “We continued to make progress on our plans. We have over 60MGPY of jet fuel and isooctane in contract negotiation, and well over 120MGPY in total under discussion. We only need to secure 5MGPY more to achieve our threshold offtake of 10MGPY which should allow us to be able to build a larger plant with acceptable economies of scale.”

Dr. Gruber continued, “We expect to refinance our secured promissory note in the 4th Quarter of 2019 or in early 2020. We are receiving a lot of interest from project financiers both for the build out of our Luverne Facility and our biogas business. We have received term sheets from project equity funds and strategic investors, and are evaluating the options and negotiating terms. We have a number of the pieces we need on the table, and we need to put them together.”

Path to Profitability and Growth

Gevo believes it can become profitable (or close to it) as a company by the end of 2021 if Gevo can successfully improve the carbon footprint of its Luverne Facility by implementing certain wind and renewable natural gas projects to offset the fossil-based electricity and natural gas that currently powers the Luverne Facility. The lower carbon footprint would allow Gevo to sell low-carbon ethanol into the California market under the Low Carbon Fuel Standard. In addition, Gevo expects to deploy a 1MGPY hydrocarbon plant at the Luverne Facility that will produce renewable jet fuel and isooctane to be sold into California and European markets. The 1MGPY hydrocarbon plant should not only generate attractive positive cash flow, but should produce products that help to establish supply chains that could in the future accommodate quantities that are orders of magnitude greater. The initial decarbonization projects, wind and renewable natural gas, for the Luverne Facility are expected to set the stage for significant growth at the Luverne Facility.

The timeline for the 1MGPY hydrocarbon plant coming on-line is expected to be about twelve months after Gevo has secured financing to pay for this project. Gevo expects one or more of its renewable natural gas projects that are under development to come on-line by the end of 2020 or early 2021, adding to our EBITDA3 in 2021.

In parallel, Gevo is working to secure the customer offtake agreements and financing to accomplish the growth plans for the Luverne Facility. This phase of growth is expected to initially result in about 10-30 MGPY of isooctane and jet fuel, and if successful would be expected to generate revenues of over $100 million to $200 million per year.

Third Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2019 was $6.1 million compared with $8.6 million in the same period in 2018. During the third quarter of 2019, revenue derived at the Luverne Facility related to ethanol sales and related products was $5.6 million, a decrease of approximately $2.5 million from the same period in 2018. As a result of an unfavorable commodity environment during the three months ended September 30, 2019 compared with the same period ended September 30, 2018, we reduced our production of ethanol and distiller grains which resulted in lower sales for the period.

During the three months ended September 30, 2019, hydrocarbon revenue was $0.6 million compared with $0.5 million in the same period in 2018. Hydrocarbon sales increased because of higher production volumes at the South Hampton Resources, Inc. facility in Silsbee, Texas (the “South Hampton Facility”). During the three months ended September 30, 2018, we reduced production at the South Hampton Facility to upgrade the facility and double the production capacity. Gevo’s hydrocarbon revenue is comprised of sales of alcohol-to-jet fuel and isooctane.

Cost of goods sold was $9.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019, compared with $10.6 million in the same period in 2018, primarily as a result of decreased production of ethanol during the 2019 quarter. Production was decreased due to an unfavorable commodity environment, largely the result of greater corn costs as compared to national markets than the region has historically experienced. Cost of goods sold included approximately $8.3 million associated with the production of ethanol, isobutanol and related products and approximately $1.6 million in depreciation expense for the three months ended September 30, 2019.

Gross loss was $3.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019, versus a $2.1 million gross loss in the same period in 2018.

Research and development expense decreased by $0.1 million during the three months ended September 30, 2019 compared with the same period in 2018, due primarily to a decrease in costs associated with our South Hampton Facility partially offset by an increase in personnel and consultant expenses.

Selling, general and administrative expense increased by $0.2 million during the three months ended September 30, 2019, compared with the same period in 2018, due primarily to an increase in personnel, consulting and investor relations costs, partially offset by a decrease in professional fees.

Loss from operations in the three months ended September 30, 2019 was $8.0 million, compared with a $6.1 million loss from operations in the same period in 2018.

Non-GAAP cash EBITDA loss4 in the three months ended September 30, 2019 was $5.8 million, compared with a $4.2 million non-GAAP cash EBITDA loss in the same period in 2018.

Interest expense in the three months ended September 30, 2019 was $0.6 million, a decrease of $0.2 million as compared to the same period in 2018, primarily due to a decline in outstanding debt as a result of the conversion of an aggregate of $3.2 million of our convertible notes during the year ended December 31, 2018.

Gevo incurred a net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2019 of $8.6 million, compared with a net loss of $6.9 million during the same period in 2018. Non-GAAP adjusted net loss5 for the three months ended September 30, 2019 was $8.6 million, compared with a non-GAAP adjusted net loss of $6.9 million during the same period in 2018.

Cash at September 30, 2019 was $20.9 million, and the total principal face value of outstanding debt was $14.0 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release contains financial measures that do not comply with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), including non-GAAP cash EBITDA loss, non-GAAP adjusted net loss, non-GAAP adjusted net loss per share and EBITDA. Non-GAAP cash EBITDA excludes depreciation and non-cash stock-based compensation. Non-GAAP adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per share excludes non-cash gains and/or losses recognized in the quarter due to the changes in the fair value of certain of Gevo’s financial instruments, such as warrants, convertible debt and embedded derivatives. EBITDA excludes interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Management believes these measures are useful to supplement its GAAP financial statements with this non-GAAP information because management uses such information internally for its operating, budgeting and financial planning purposes. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management’s internal comparisons to Gevo’s historical performance as well as comparisons to the operating results of other companies. In addition, Gevo believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow for greater transparency into the indicators used by management as a basis for its financial and operational decision making.
