Renewable Energy Group Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Of the $6.2 million of operating cash flow generated in the quarter, $2.0 million was deployed in capital expenditures, $2.7 million was used to repurchase shares due to tax net settlement on vesting securities, $0.3 was used for a slight reduction in debt, and the remaining $1.2 million increased cash.

Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation

REG presents Adjusted EBITDA because the company believes it assists investors in analyzing its performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis. In addition, REG uses Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate, assess and benchmark its financial performance on a consistent and comparable basis. REG excludes non-cash stock-based compensation and non-cash other income (expense) items because it does not believe that they are indicative of the company’s ongoing operating performance. REG’s measure of Adjusted EBITDA might be different than similar financial measures used by other companies. Non-GAAP metrics are not determined in accordance with GAAP and are not a substitute for or superior to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA Margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by Revenues.
