KiOR Reports Second Quarter 2012 Results

General and administrative (G&A) expenses for the second quarter of 2012 were $13.7 million, an increase of $5.7 million from the first quarter of 2012, primarily due to Columbus labor force salary, training and related pre-startup expenses, and $1.3 million higher non-cash stock-based compensation. Year-over-year expenses increased $6.6 million from the second quarter of 2011, mainly driven by higher Columbus related expenses, and $1.0 million higher non-cash stock-based compensation expense, partially offset by lower consulting expenses.

Depreciation and amortization expenses for the second quarter of 2012 were $0.7 million, in line with depreciation and amortization expenses recorded in the first quarter of 2012 and $0.1 million higher than the second quarter of 2011.

Capital investment during the second quarter was $28.4 million, substantially all of which was related to KiOR's initial-scale commercial production facility in Columbus.

KiOR had cash and cash equivalents of $107.0 million at June 30, 2012, which represents a $24.6 million decrease from the December 31, 2011 balance. This decrease was primarily driven by capital expenditures, operating uses of cash, and paying off previous business loans, partially offset by funding from the $75.0 million 4-year-term loan announced early this year. Net long-term debt stood at $113.3 million as of quarter-end.
