Balance Sheet and Liquidity

At September 30, 2012, REG had cash and cash equivalents of $88.3 million. Operating cash flow for the quarter was negatively impacted by a $10.6 million increase in accounts receivable and an $8.9 million reduction in accounts payable. Accounts receivable grew due to increasing sales volume during the quarter. The negative impacts were more than offset by a $19.3 million reduction in inventories. The inventory decline was balanced between a reduction in raw materials as REG drew down feedstock purchased in earlier periods at favorable prices and a reduction in finished goods.
