Strengthened Financial Position *Achieved lowest quarterly cash operating expenses since our Initial Public Offering in 2010. *Following quarter-end, closed initial tranche of convertible note financing for $42.6 million in cash proceeds, with established terms for access to additional funds in a second tranche. FINANCIAL RESULTS Aggregate revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 were $7.0 million compared to aggregate revenues of $19.1 million in the third quarter of 2012. Last year's third quarter revenues included $1.7 million of sales related to the Company's ethanol and ethanol-blended gasoline business, a business which the Company transitioned out of in the third quarter of 2012. Of the $7.0 million in aggregate revenues in the quarter ended September 30, 2013, $4.1 million was related to renewable product sales and $2.9 million was related to collaboration and grant revenue. This compares with $3.0 million in renewable product sales and $14.4 million in collaboration and grant revenue for the same period in the prior year. The $14.4 million in grants and collaboration revenue in the prior year's quarter included $9.8 million in revenue related to a July 2012 amendment of the Company's collaboration agreement with Total. Cost of products sold increased to $8.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013 from $4.4 million for the same period in the prior year. Cost of products sold for the three months ended September 30, 2013 consisted primarily of production costs of farnesene-derived products, including certain costs related to the scale-up in production of farnesene-derived products at the Company's recently operational plant located in Brotas, Brazil. Total research & development (R&D) and sales, general & administrative (SG&A) expenses for the three months declined 20.1 % to $26.4 million from $33.1 million for the same quarter in the prior year, primarily due to reductions in personnel-related costs and overall lower spending. GAAP net loss attributable to common stockholders for the quarter was $24.2 million ($0.32 per share) compared to a loss of $20.3 million ($0.34 per share) in the comparable quarter of 2012. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding stock-based compensation and loss on purchase commitments and write-off of production assets, the net loss attributable to common stockholders was $19.8 million ($0.26 per share) compared to $12.9 million ($0.22 per share) in the comparable quarter of the prior year. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is included in this release. Nine Months Ended September 30, 2013 Aggregate revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 were $25.7 million versus $67.8 million in the prior year. Revenues for the first nine months of last year included $38.8 million of sales related to the Company's ethanol and ethanol-blended gasoline business. Of the $25.7 million in aggregate revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, $11.3 million was related to renewable product sales and $14.4 million was related to collaboration and grant revenue. This compares with $7.8 million in renewable product sales and $21.2 million in collaboration and grant revenue for the same period in the prior year. The $21.2 million in grants and collaboration revenue in the prior year included $9.8 million in revenue recorded as a result of a July 2012 amendment of a collaboration agreement and related agreements with Total. Cost of products sold declined to $26.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 from $71.9 million for the same period in the prior year. Prior year cost of products sold included costs related to the Company's ethanol and ethanol-blended gasoline business. Total R&D and SG&A expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 declined 26.7% to $85.7 million from $116.9 million for the same period in 2012, primarily due to reductions in personnel-related costs and overall lower spending. GAAP net loss attributable to common stockholders for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was $95.7 million ($1.27 per share) compared to a loss of $161.6 million ($2.91 per share) in the comparable period of 2012. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding stock-based compensation and loss on purchase commitments and write-off of production assets, the net loss attributable to common stockholders was $73.7 million ($0.98 per share) compared to $102.2 million ($1.84 per share) in the prior year.

These forward-looking statements include, among other things, statements regarding future events (such as the Company's expectations for growth in new areas such as lubricants and specialty fluids and polymers and for achieving positive cash flow from operations and profitability, including the expected timing of such achievements) that involve risks and uncertainties. These statements are based on management's current expectations and actual results and future events may differ materially due to risks and uncertainties, including those associated with any delays or failures in development, production and commercialization of products, liquidity and ability to fund capital expenditures, Amyris's reliance on third parties to achieve its goals, and other risks detailed in the "Risk Factors" section of Amyris's quarterly report on Form 10-Q filed on August 9, 2013.

Non-GAAP Financial Information Consolidated financial information has been presented in accordance with GAAP as well as on a non-GAAP basis. The non-GAAP financial measures exclude non-cash items such as stock-based compensation. Management believes that it is useful to supplement its GAAP financial statements with this non-GAAP information because management uses such information internally for its operating, budgeting and financial planning purposes. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal comparisons to Amyris's historical performance as well as comparisons to the operating results of other companies. In addition, Amyris believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow for greater transparency into the indicators used by management as a basis for its financial and operational decision making.
