Alto Ingredients, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2022 Results

  • Grew Net Sales to $336.9 Million, Up 10% from Q3 2021
  • Secured Up to $125 Million in Available Debt for Large Capital-Intensive Programs

SACRAMENTO, Calif" Nov. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alto Ingredients, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALTO), a leading producer and distributor of specialty alcohols and essential ingredients, reported its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2022.

"Focused on long-term growth, we created the financial flexibility to accelerate the next phase of our capital expenditure program, which will build upon strategic repairs and maintenance completed in 2022," said Mike Kandris, CEO of Alto Ingredients. "Year-to-date, we successfully upgraded equipment and operating systems to increase plant efficiency, reliability, redundancy, and capacity. Regardless, and as expected, our third quarter 2022 results were affected by logistical constraints, increased transportation costs, and low commodity margins. With proceeds from our announced $125 million term debt financing, we will implement larger capital-intensive growth projects to further our specialty alcohols and essential ingredients diversification strategy, minimize the impact of commodity pricing volatility and enrich our margin profile. Opportunities under evaluation include carbon capture sequestration, yeast production, energy supply improvements and more. We are excited about the future and look forward to delivering additional value to all our stakeholders."

Use of Non-GAAP Measures
Management believes that certain financial measures not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") are useful measures of operations. The company defines Adjusted EBITDA as unaudited net income (loss) before interest expense, interest income, provision for income taxes, asset impairments, loss on extinguishment of debt, acquisition-related expense, fair value adjustments, and depreciation and amortization expense. A table is provided at the end of this release that provides a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to its most directly comparable GAAP measure, net income (loss). Management provides this non-GAAP measure so that investors will have the same financial information that management uses, which may assist investors in properly assessing the company's performance on a period-over-period basis. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) or any other measure of performance under GAAP, or to cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities as an indicator of cash flows or as a measure of liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool and you should not consider this measure in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the company's results as reported under GAAP.
