Thursday, November 8, 2012 4:15 PM


FutureFuel Third Quarter Revenues Decrease 2.2% to $88.3 Million

Reports Net Income of $12.5 Million or $0.30 Per Diluted Share, and Adjusted EBITDA of $24.0 Million

Conference Call Begins at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time November 9, 2012

CLAYTON, Mo., Nov. 8, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FutureFuel Corp. (NYSE:FF), a manufacturer of custom and performance chemicals and biofuels, today announced financial results from the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012.

Third Quarter 2012 Financial Highlights (all comparisons are with the third quarter of 2011)

  • Revenues were $88.3 million, down 2.2% from $90.3 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $24.0 million, up 19.7% from $20.0 million
  • Net income decreased to $12.5 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, from $12.7 million, or $0.31 per diluted share.

First Nine Months of 2012 Financial Highlights (all comparisons are with the first nine months of 2011 unless otherwise noted)

  • Revenues were $277.2 million, up 25.9% from $220.3 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $46.5 million, a 10.5% increase from $42.1 million
  • Net income increased to $28.1 million, or $0.68 per diluted share, from $23.9 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, increases of 17.8% and 15.3%, respectively

"Overall, we were pleased with our financial results for the third quarter of 2012. While they may not have demonstrated a high level of growth relative to the third quarter of 2011, the results were reassuring given the volatility seen in the biodiesel market in the third quarter of 2012," said Lee Mikles, FutureFuel president and chief executive officer. "The gross profit of our chemicals segment increased in the third quarter of 2012 as compared to the third quarter of 2011. Unfortunately, the gross profit of our biofuels segment continues to be affected by difficult market conditions, including extreme volatility in the RINs market, and the continued negative impact of the expiration of the $1.00 per gallon federal blenders tax credit at December 31, 2011."

"Net income for the third quarter of 2012 is very similar to that earned in the third quarter of 2011. Net income for the first nine months of 2012, however, is up approximately 18% over net income for the first nine months of 2011."

2012 Regular Cash Dividends

FutureFuel declared a normal quarterly dividend of $0.10 per share for 2012, payable in March, June, September, and December.

Third Quarter Financial and Business Summary

Revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2012 were $88,276,000 as compared to revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2011 of $90,307,000, a decrease of 2%. Revenues from biofuels were essentially unchanged and accounted for 54% of total revenues in the third quarter of 2012 as compared to 53% in the third quarter of 2011. Revenues from chemicals decreased 4% and accounted for 46% of total revenues in the third quarter of 2012 as compared to 47% in the third quarter of 2011. Revenue from the bleach activator and the proprietary herbicide and intermediates are together the most significant components of our chemicals business revenue base, accounting for 26% of total revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2012 as compared to 31% of total revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2011. These products comprised a smaller percentage of our total revenues in the third quarter of 2012 due to growth in the biofuels segment and year-to-year decreases in these chemical products. Revenues from biofuels decreased from $48,123,000 in the three months ended September 30, 2011 to $47,949,000 in the three months ended September 30, 2012. The reinstatement of the $1.00 per gallon federal blenders credit in December 2010 along with the government mandated renewable fuel standard for biodiesel combined to improve the economics of biodiesel in 2011. However, the blenders credit expired on December 31, 2011 and has not been reinstated. While we have not experienced a material decrease in demand for our biodiesel as a result of the loss of the blenders credit, the loss of the credit has adversely affected our biofuels segment gross profit by approximately $1.00 per gallon of biodiesel sold by us.    

Income from operations decreased to $19,181,000 in the third quarter of 2012 from $19,358,000 for the third quarter of 2011. FutureFuel does not report income from operations by segment, but does report segment gross profit. The chemicals segment gross profit increased 18% to $15,357,000 in the third quarter of 2012 from $13,064,000 in the third quarter of 2011. Biofuels segment gross profit decreased to $6,606,000 in the third quarter of 2012 from $8,931,000 in the third quarter of 2011. This decrease was partially a result of the receipt of approximately $1,900,000 under the USDA Section 9005 – Advanced Biofuel Producers program – in the third quarter of 2011. This award totaled approximately $753,000 in the third quarter of 2012. The receipt of this award has been recorded as a reduction in cost of good sold and distribution in both the third quarter of 2012 and 2011. Additionally, the profitability of the biofuels segment was affected by a general reduction in biofuel profit margins as a result of fluctuations in the biodiesel market and the expiration of the $1.00 per gallon federal blenders credit on December 31, 2011.   

Chemicals segment gross profit increased primarily as a result of certain reductions in our operating costs due to an ongoing effort to minimize such expenditures, a reduction in cost of goods sold resulting from adjustments in our inventory carrying value as determined utilizing the LIFO method of inventory accounting and changes in capitalized inventory costs resulting from the change in product mix in inventory at September 30, 2012.

FutureFuel reported net income of $12,549,000, or $0.30 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012, compared with net income of $12,733,000, or $0.31 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2011. Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2012 was $23,991,000, up from $20,046,000 in the third quarter of 2011.

Nine Month Financial Summary

Revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 were $277,240,000 as compared to revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 of $220,276,000, an increase of 26%. Revenues from biofuels increased 63% and accounted for 57% of total revenues in the first nine months of 2012 as compared to 44% in the first nine months of 2011. Revenues from chemicals decreased 3% and accounted for 43% of total revenues in the first nine months of 2012 as compared to 56% in the first nine months of 2011. Revenue from the bleach activator and the proprietary herbicide and intermediates are together the most significant components of our chemicals business revenue base, accounting for 23% of total revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 as compared to 36% of total revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. These products comprised a smaller percentage of our total revenues in the nine months ended 2012 due to growth in the biofuels segment and year-to-year decreases of these chemical products. Revenues from biofuels increased from $96,545,000 in the nine months ended September 30, 2011 to $157,612,000 in the nine months ended September 30, 2012. The reinstatement of the $1.00 per gallon federal blenders credit in December 2010 along with the government mandated renewable fuel standard for biodiesel combined to improve the economics of biodiesel in 2011. However, the blenders credit expired on December 31, 2011 and has not been reinstated. While we have not experienced a material decrease in demand for our biodiesel as a result of the loss of the blenders credit, the loss of the credit has adversely affected our biofuels segment gross profit by approximately $1.00 per gallon of biodiesel sold by us.     

Income from operations increased to $41,336,000 in the first nine months of 2012 from $35,234,000 in the first nine months of 2011. FutureFuel does not report income from operations by segment, but does report segment gross profit. The chemicals segment gross profit increased 37% to $38,277,000 in the first nine months of 2012 from $27,907,000 in the first nine months of 2011. Biofuels segment gross profit decreased to $10,887,000 in the nine months ended September 30, 2012 from $14,516,000 in the nine months ended September 30, 2011. This decrease was largely a result of a combination of the following: (i) the expiration of the $1.00 per gallon federal blenders credit on December 31, 2011; and (ii) in the first nine months of 2011 we received approximately $1,900,000 from the USDA from its Section 9005 – Advanced Biofuel Producers program. In the first nine months of 2011, such receipt was recorded as a reduction to the cost of goods sold and distribution of the biofuels segment. In the first nine months of 2012, $753,000 was received under this program.

Chemical segment gross profit increased primarily as a result of a combination of the following: (i) a reduction in our cost of goods sold resulting from adjustments in our inventory carrying value as determined utilizing the LIFO method of inventory accounting; (ii) changes in capitalized inventory costs resulting from the change in product mix in inventory at September 30, 2012; and (iii) we experienced certain reductions in our operating costs due to an ongoing effort to minimize such expenditures.     

FutureFuel reported net income of $28,135,000, or $0.68 per diluted share, for the first nine months of 2012, compared with net income of $23,888,000, or $0.59 per diluted share, for the first nine months of 2011. Adjusted EBITDA for the first nine months of 2012 was $46,515,000, up from $42,101,000 in the first nine months of 2011.

Capital Expenditures

Capital expenditures were $6.7 million for the first nine months of 2012, compared with $18.8 million for the first nine months of 2011. This decrease was attributable to the completion of certain capital projects undertaken on behalf of certain of our customers. FutureFuel is reimbursed for a portion of these expenditures by certain customers and grants as summarized in the following table.

Forward-Looking Statements

This document contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements deal with FutureFuel's current plans, intentions, beliefs, and expectations, and statements of future economic performance. Statements containing such terms as "believe," "do not believe," "plan," "expect," "intend," "estimate," "anticipate," and other phrases of similar meaning are considered to contain uncertainty and are forward-looking statements. In addition, from time to time FutureFuel or its representatives have made or will make forward-looking statements orally or in writing. Furthermore, such forward-looking statements may be included in various filings that the company makes with United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), in press releases, or in oral statements made by or with the approval of one of FutureFuel's authorized executive officers.

These forward-looking statements are subject to certain known and unknown risks and uncertainties, as well as assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from those reflected in these forward-looking statements. Factors that might cause actual results to differ include, but are not limited to, those set forth under the headings "Risk Factors" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" in FutureFuel's Form 10-K Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2010 and in its future filings made with the SEC. An investor should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements contained in this document which reflect FutureFuel's management's opinions only as of their respective dates. Except as required by law, the company undertakes no obligation to revise or publicly release the results of any revisions to forward-looking statements. The risks and uncertainties described in this document and in current and future filings with the SEC are not the only ones FutureFuel faces. New factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for the company to predict which will arise. There may be additional risks not presently known to the company or that the company currently believes are immaterial to its business. In addition, FutureFuel cannot assess the impact of each factor on its business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. If any such risks occur, FutureFuel's business, operating results, liquidity, and financial condition could be materially affected in an adverse manner. An investor should consult any additional disclosures FutureFuel has made or will make in its reports to the SEC on Forms 10-K, 10-Q, and 8-K, and any amendments thereto. All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to FutureFuel or persons acting on its behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements contained in this document.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this press release, FutureFuel used adjusted EBITDA as a key operating metric to measure both performance and liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA is not a substitute for operating income, net income, or cash flow from operating activities (each as determined in accordance with GAAP), as a measure of performance or liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of results as reported under GAAP. FutureFuel defines adjusted EBITDA as net income before interest, income taxes, depreciation, and amortization expenses, excluding, when applicable, non-cash share-based compensation expense, public offering expenses, acquisition-related transaction costs, purchase accounting adjustments, loss on disposal of property and equipment, gains or losses on derivative instruments, and other non-operating income or expense. Information relating to adjusted EBITDA is provided so that investors have the same data that management employs in assessing the overall operation and liquidity of FutureFuel's business. FutureFuel's calculation of adjusted EBITDA may be different from similarly titled measures used by other companies; therefore, the results of its calculation are not necessarily comparable to the results of other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA allows FutureFuel's chief operating decision makers to assess the performance and liquidity of FutureFuel's business on a consolidated basis to assess the ability of its operating segments to produce operating cash flow to fund working capital needs, to fund capital expenditures and to pay dividends. In particular, FutureFuel management believes that adjusted EBITDA permits a comparative assessment of FutureFuel's operating performance and liquidity relative to performance and liquidity based on GAAP results. In our view, adjusted EBITDA isolates the effects of (i) depreciation and amortization, which may vary among its operating segments without any correlation to their underlying operating performance; (ii) non-cash stock-based compensation expense, which is a non-cash expense that varies widely among similar companies; and (iii) gains and losses on derivative instruments, whose immediate recognition can cause net income to be volatile from quarter to quarter due to the timing of the valuation change in the derivative instruments relative to the sale of biofuel.

A table included in this earnings release reconciles adjusted EBITDA with net income, the most directly comparable GAAP performance financial measure.  Another table reconciles adjusted EBITDA with cash flows from operations, the most directly comparable GAAP liquidity financial measure.

Depreciation is allocated to segment costs of goods sold based on plant usage. The total assets and capital expenditures of FutureFuel have not been allocated to individual segments as large portions of these assets are shared to varying degrees by each segment, causing such an allocation to be of little value.
