Adecoagro S.A.: Adjusted EBITDA of $90.1 million. Solid crushing pace and Farming yield normalization. $35 million cash dividend during 2024.

LUXEMBOURG, May 16, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Adecoagro S.A. (NYSE: AGRO, Bloomberg: AGRO US, Reuters: AGRO.K), a leading sustainable production company in South America, announced today its results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024. The financial information contained in this press release is based on consolidated financial statements presented in US dollars and prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) except for Non - IFRS measures. Please refer to page 22 for a definition and reconciliation to IFRS of the Non - IFRS measures used in this earnings release.

Main highlights for the period:

  • Gross sales were 2.6% higher in 1Q24 due to (i) more sugarcane crushed, which enabled us to increase our sugar production and execute sales at solid prices; coupled with (ii) an increase in average selling prices in the Rice segment.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $90.1 million, 1.1% above 1Q23, driven by an outperformance of all three segments of our Farming business. This, in turn, fully offset the decline reported in the Sugar, Ethanol & Energy business due to a year-over-year loss in the mark-to-market of our biological assets on price outlook.
  • Adjusted net income in 1Q24 amounted to $23.3 million, 40.1% lower than the previous year.
  • Net debt amounted to $639.2 million, a 23.0% year-over-year reduction, while net debt to LTM Adjusted EBITDA ratio reached 1.3x, 0.6x lower than 1Q23.

Sugar, Ethanol & Energy business:

  • Crushing volumes amounted to 2.2 million tons, 47% higher YoY and an all time record for a 1Q milling figure, due to greater sugarcane availability. We diverted as much as 49% to produce sugar, which traded on average 48% above hydrous ethanol in Mato Grosso do Sul. In terms of ethanol, 91% of our production was hydrous ethanol given the active demand for this type of fuel, while we also continued to take advantage of our storage capacity and carried over 194 thousand m3 (69% higher than in 1Q23) into the following quarters, to profit from higher expected prices. Furthermore, our unitary cost of production decreased 9% YoY given the higher volume crushed. Nevertheless, results were negatively impacted by (i) a YoY loss in the mark-to-market of our biological assets due to lower sugar prices (sugar #11 contracts) during 1Q24 compared to 1Q23, coupled with (ii) higher freight costs as we sold more sugar. Consequently, Adjusted EBITDA reached $51.9 million in 1Q24, 32% lower than in 1Q23.

Farming business:

  • In 1Q24, Adjusted EBITDA for the Farming business amounted to $44.0 million, $25.5 million higher compared to 1Q23. This was driven by an outperformance in all three segments. Our Rice business presented a YoY increase of $19.4 million, mainly explained by (i) a better campaign in terms of area, productivity and prices, leading to a $12.7 million YoY gain in the mark-to-market of our biological assets; coupled with (ii) our presence in both the export and domestic market which enabled us to conduct sales at attractive prices ($433 /ton higher versus 1Q23) as we were the only rice producer with available stocks at a moment when rice supply was limited. In the case of Crops, the full recovery in yields of our main grains was the main reason behind the $5.8 million YoY increase in results. In our Dairy business, Adjusted EBITDA was 5% higher than in 1Q23 mainly due to lower cost of feed (corn silage and soy pellets) as our in-house production recovered the volume lost.


2024 Shareholder Distribution

  • Our Annual Shareholder Meeting held on April 17th approved a cash dividend distribution of $35 million to be paid in two installments of $17.5 million each. The first installment represents approximately $0.1682 per share and will be paid on May 29th, 2024 to shareholders of the Company with record date May 14th, 2024. The second installment shall be payable in or about November 2024 in an equal cash amount.
  • In addition, year-to-date we invested $26.6 million in repurchasing 2.6 million shares (2.4% of the company's equity) under our existing share buyback program, at an average price of $10.40 per share.

Farmland Sale at Premium to Independent Appraisal

  • In April 2024, we completed the sale of La Pecuaria farm located in the Province of Durazno, Uruguay, for a selling price of $20.7 million ($6,500 /hectare) fully collected at the closing date. The transaction generated an Adjusted EBITDA of $15.3 million, which will be booked in our Crops segment in 2Q24.
