Green Plains Inc. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Operating and Financial Results for the First Quarter Ended Mar. 31, 2015; Provides Financial Guidance for the First Half and Full Year of Fiscal 2015

Green Plains Inc. announced unaudited consolidated operating and financial results for the first quarter ended Mar. 31, 2015. Net loss for the quarter was $3.3 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared to net income of $43.2 million, or $1.04 per diluted share, for the same period in 2014. Revenues were $738.4 million for the first quarter of 2015 compared to $733.9 million for the same period in 2014. Green Plains had $420.5 million in total cash and equivalents and $154.2 million available under committed loan agreements at subsidiaries (subject to borrowing base restrictions and other specified lending conditions) at March 31, 2015. First quarter 2015 EBITDA, which is defined as earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, was $18.8 million compared to $94.1 million for the same period in 2014. Operating income was $4,104,000 against $78,343,000 for the same period of last year, primarily as a result of the weaker ethanol margin environment and more limited merchant trading opportunities in marketing and distribution segment. Loss before income taxes was $5,765,000 against income of $69,728,000 for the same period of last year. Operating income decreased by $74.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015 compared to the same period in 2014 as a result of the factors discussed above partially offset by a $1.0 million decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses. The company invested about $14 million in capital expenditures in the first quarter of 2015. During the first quarter, Green Plains' ethanol production totaled 232.5 million gallons, or approximately 92.4% of its daily average production capacity. Non-ethanol operating income from the corn oil production, agribusiness, and marketing and distribution segments was $19.0 million in the first quarter of 2015 compared to $41.1 million for the same period in 2014. Based on the current forward curve, the company expects profitable results for the first half and full year of fiscal 2015.
