Alto Ingredients, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2023 Results

PEKIN, Ill., Nov. 06, 2023 (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, 2023.

"Our transition to provide high margin, differentiated specialty alcohols and essential ingredients in consumer, pharmaceutical, food, beverage and industrial products has greatly improved our financial profile over the past three years," said Bryon McGregor, President and CEO of Alto Ingredients. "We continue to make good progress, yet we remain subject to operational and commodity market challenges. Our third quarter results reflect the contribution from stronger ethanol crush margins partially offset by the impact of unusually high unscheduled downtime that lowered our anticipated production volumes and shifted our mix toward lower margin products. Regardless, we delivered positive Adjusted EBITDA and positive operating cash flow for the quarter. We also completed numerous repairs and maintenance projects that we expect will benefit production going forward.

"Throughout our strategic realignment, we have been committed to creating and pursuing opportunities that target long-term profitability and maximize shareholder value. While the path has been and will continue to be dynamic, we remain agile and financially prudent and will continue to capitalize on the most promising and profitable opportunities. The preliminary findings from our primary yeast front-end engineering design study are promising, yet both our revenue upside and our projected installation costs increased significantly, reflecting inflationary pressures and supply chain constraints. Based on these findings, changing capital requirements, and current capital market conditions, we have extended our EBITDA expansion goals by six to twelve months. We continue to evaluate various funding alternatives with potential financing partners and will prioritize projects with the greatest return on investment within an appropriate time frame. We remain enthusiastic about the prospects and confident in our long-term growth strategy."

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 consolidated 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.
