Amyris Reports Fourth Quarter And 2011 Year-End Financial Results

Amyris, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMRS), a leading renewable chemicals and fuels company, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2011.

“2011 was a year of accomplishment and learning. We opened three facilities on three continents to produce initial volumes of Biofene®, our renewable farnesene, and have now produced over 1.3 million liters of Biofene, which we are selling initially as squalane and diesel,” said John Melo, CEO of Amyris. “We have proven that our technology produces renewable hydrocarbons at scale and continue to meet our current customer demand for quality and performance. With the additional financing we have secured, we have a strong position to ramp our production to meet the needs of an expanding group of customers,” he added.

In a separate release today, Amyris also announced it has closed a $58.7 million private placement of its common stock at market value and issued a $25 million five-year convertible debt offering to an institutional investor.
