Renewable Energy Group Reports First Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Renewable Energy Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:REGI) announced today its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2012 revenues were $188.2 million, an increase of 80% compared to revenues of $104.4 million for the same period in 2011. For the quarter ended March 31, 2012, adjusted EBITDA was $12.7 million, an increase of 140% compared to $5.3 million for the same period in 2011. The balance sheet remained strong with cash of $75.2 million at the close of the quarter, compared to $33.6 million at December 31, 2011.

“During our first quarter as a publicly traded company, Renewable Energy Group again demonstrated why we are a leader in the advanced biofuel industry,” said Daniel J. Oh, President and Chief Executive Officer of REG. “We grew our biodiesel volumes and revenue substantially, raised capital with a successful IPO, and made solid progress toward upgrades and technology advancements at our biorefineries. With strong demand due to RFS2, and a fleet of biorefineries able to flexibly arbitrage lower cost feedstocks, we believe we are well-positioned to profitably grow our business in 2012 and beyond.”

Operating Highlights

REG produced 39 million gallons of biodiesel in the first quarter of 2012, compared to 20 million gallons in the same period in 2011. REG sold 34 million gallons of biodiesel in the first quarter of 2012, an increase of 69% compared to the same period in 2011. Five million gallons that were produced and shipped in January and February will be recognized in the second quarter of 2012 in accordance with GAAP revenue recognition rules. The year over year increase in gallons sold was primarily due to an increase in biodiesel demand compared to the same period in 2011 as petroleum-fuel refiners and importers sought to meet their renewable volume obligations to purchase biomass-based diesel under the Renewable Fuel Standard 2 (“RFS2”) law. RFS2 specifies the consumption of 1 billion gallons of biodiesel in 2012, compared to 800 million in 2011.
