SG&A expenses were $4.0 million in the first quarter of 2013, compared to $3.4 million for the first quarter of 2012. The increase in SG&A is primarily due to one-time professional expenses associated with the completion of the company's senior note transaction.

Consolidated net loss was $6.6 million in the first quarter of 2013, a 53% reduction, from a consolidated net loss of $14.0 million for the first quarter of 2012.

Loss available to common stockholders for the first quarter of 2013 was $5.8 million, compared to $5.3 million for the first quarter of 2012. Adjusted EBITDA was $0.4 million for the first quarter of 2013, compared to negative $2.5 million in the first quarter of 2012.

The company's cash balance was $4.2 million at March 31, 2013, compared to a cash balance of $7.6 million at December 31, 2012. The company used approximately $4.0 million of its cash to pay down a portion of its senior notes and purchase additional plant debt and ownership interests.

Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Net Loss

Management believes that certain financial measures not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") are useful measures of operations. The company defines Adjusted EBITDA as unaudited earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and warrant inducements and fair value adjustments. The table at the end of this release provides a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss attributed to Pacific Ethanol, Inc. Management provides an Adjusted EBITDA measure so that investors will have the same financial information that management uses, which may assist investors in properly assessing the company's performance on a period-over-period basis. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered an alternative to net loss or any other measure of performance under GAAP, or to cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities as an indicator of cash flows or as a measure of liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the company's results as reported under GAAP.
