"The forward curve for ethanol margins has not given our team a reason to execute significant amounts of forward hedges. Recently, nearby margins have recovered somewhat but remain below historical levels. With that said, our growth in non-ethanol operating income over the last two years will continue to cushion the effect of a compressed margin structure," said Becker. "We expect to generate over $60 million of non-ethanol operating income this year, even considering the recent sale of certain agribusiness assets."In December 2012, Green Plains completed the previously-announced sale of 12 grain elevators located in northwestern Iowa and western Tennessee. The sale resulted in an after-tax gain of $26.3 million which is included in fourth quarter 2012 results. Excluding the gain on the sale of agribusiness assets, net income attributable to Green Plains was $6.7 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter.
