    What's the bottom line here?

    Real-time consideration of these factors has led us to make some adjustments in our manufacturing and commercialization strategies to drive capital efficiency and commercial success. Our view is that the destination's largely the same and we think quite possibly even better than it's always been, but the journey will change a bit, specifically, will narrow our production focus to smaller volumes of higher-value products at both Moema and Clinton/Galva. We will be prioritizing cash management and product margin over a rapid capacity ramp. We, therefore, no longer plan to produce at nameplate capacity within 12 to 18 months.

    Next Time, Ask About The Algae

    "Thanks, Jonathan. I'll start with Peoria. Our technology and manufacturing process continues to work well at Peoria, and the plant has been a success story for Solazyme. As previously mentioned, we have largely transitioned this facility from what was essentially an integrated biorefinery into a small commercial-scale plant that is mainly focused on making our AlgaVia powdered nutritional ingredients. The plant operations are now routinely producing in-spec AlgaVia Protein and Lipid Powder. Our experience at Peoria gives us high confidence in our ability to scale AlgaVia powdered ingredient production in our larger facilities in the future. We have reserved some capacity at Peoria and are still using the facility to produce ingredients for the Algenist brand and will continue to produce some oils for development and market-seeding purposes."

    So what did they make 17 million from if not algae?

    Dude, are you institutionalized?

  • abigchocoholic by abigchocoholic Nov 6, 2014 12:01 AM Flag

    Why did they only increase income by 2 million over last quarter? What is their excuse?
    If they have 3 plants up and running how can they only produce 2 million more than last quarter?

    Really? The price is going down 20% right now because tomorrow a company is going to offer a premium of 50%?

    Don't you have anything better than that?

    stock market is psychotic in the short run.

    Always has been. Always will be. Nothing more than going to Vegas.

    And it's why almost all day traders go broke.

    Really? Then why is it already down to 9.70?

    The stock market is psychotic. Don't try to apply logic.

    Hey, You Finally Did it Signature!

    How does depreciation and capital expenditure help Signature? Why would they focus on either with 900m in Federal and State NOLs?

    I'm not sure how they'd do it as I'm not a tax guy but this seems to be the one off situation where they actually want the tax man to come at them large now in exchange for little later after the NOLs are used up.

    I'm wondering if it's even possible for Sig to do another one or two of these type deals. Basically just keep on borrowing to buy net revenue as long as the numbers work i.e. the borrowed money is cheaper than the net revenue from the purchase.

    There was no take back financing. Seller cashed out. 495m cash and 30m shares. Signature is financing through third parties. Zell backed.

    "Under the terms of the stock purchase agreement, Signature will acquire GRSA for a purchase price of $525 million comprised of $495 million in cash and $30 million in preferred stock in Signature."

    Exactly. Stock is skyrocketing on no news and volume is up the yingyang over nothing, right? But there's nothing to it, right? It's just random stock market movement, right?

    These aren't insiders' families who know what's coming right? Give me a break. What a crock. What a rigged game.

    I'm thinking the financing is going to cost them about 5%, maybe 6%. So 5% annually of 525m is about 25m in annual finance costs. 25m off that 75m leaves about 50m a year in net revenue to SGGH. With a company growth rate of almost 7% a year in a solid under the radar business. And it looks like they will get to use those NOLs so all revenue will be tax free for the next 15 years. Pretty good deal from what I can see. Nice job Craig and board. I just wish you were with us 4 years ago instead of the clowns who took over in bk.

    Now the question is whether the market cares. Stock has popped back to 10 on the news. Now what? Drift back to 7? Keep going to 12? It's a roll of the dice at this point especially given this deal got done at the top of a bull market.

    A Transformative Deal with Target Generating Annual Revenues of Approximately $1.5 billion. For the twelve-month period ended June 30, 2014, Aleris reports that GRSA's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, on an adjusted, stand-alone basis ("Adjusted EBITDA") were $74.9 million
    Not too shabby. You'll finally be able to start using some of those NOLS! Right? Well, maybe not so fast as you had to pay 525 million cash for that business which now must be financed because you don't have 525 million cash. So how much is the financing going to cost? What is your net taxable revenue expected to be? Do you have any chance of hitting 900m in net revenue over the life of the NOLS? If that business is going to grow at 6.7% a year, using the 900m in NOLs is a tall order isn't it?

    Well, maybe I'll get back in. So far no reaction whatsoever from the market. That's what happens when you go dark for 4 years.

    Tesla's 'D' adds all-wheel drive, safety features
    Ooh, ahhh, oohh. Nobody's ever put AWD in a car before right? It's amazing right?

    So Let's do a press conference. Let's stand up on stage and try and get dramatic and describe to everyone how our overpriced, low range vehicle for the rich only now comes with AWD.

    That ought to justify TSLA's 30b dollar market cap right?

    Seriously, can you people be any dumber. When this bubble bursts, you'll deserve to lose 90% of your investment.

    Can't they bypass any SZYM patents by using a different strain of algae or by making some other trivial modification to the overall process?
    You want that answered on a message board? Put up about 1 million, hire multiple top level patent law firms to research it and give you opinions and the answer will still be gray. But ask it on a message board? It just shows you are clueless.

    Nice short wet dream. That's not going to happen.
    What? The stock is not going to $5 or $4? Like it wasn't going to $6 today--like that wasn't ever going to happen until--er ah umm, until it happened?

    Stock was at $15 before Moema even opened and here we are with Moema open and large scale fermentation underway and 200m more in the company coffers than prior to Moema opening and yet the stock just hit the high 5s. But it can't go any lower, right? You're guaranteeing that, right?

    Get real.

  • Solazyme’s core fermentation technology is performing well at Moema, with ongoing successful large-scale fermentations of two different products in multiple full-scale production vessels. Although the key downstream unit operations are functional all the way to oil production, and modest quantities of finished product continue to be produced and shipped, downstream processes at Moema require further optimization and are not yet operating on a fully integrated basis. This is an area of significant focus and ongoing improvement.

    These and other developments will be discussed on Solazyme’s investor conference call for the third quarter of 2014, which as announced separately today will be held on November 5, 2014.
    Moema is pathetically delayed once again so no upside potential here in the short run. And lots of downside potential especially given it's quickly coming up on tax dump time. This thing could easily go down to $4 a share and maybe should because it's unproven technology. Even at $4 it would still be a several hundred million dollar company. Bottom line---- looks like longs are toast for this year.

    And the perfect time for a big player to come in and buy this thing for pocket change. If it goes down to $3-$5 a share, a large player could come in and pick this up for $8-$12 cash in a hostile takeover. What a coup that would be. Kick out these small time bums, screw over the shareholders and run this thing with billions in private money.

    Like I Said... No Oil

    Come on David. Keep up.

    Their oil is now in cosmetics and soap and a drilling product (and probably other products)----their oil is in the marketplace in product. It's no longer speculation it's available for purchase. Screaming "no oil" just makes you a buffoon.

    And no cash--What's wrong with you? They just suckered 200m out of the marketplace. They now have $3.60 per share in cash.

    Think before you speak.

    Earlier this year, why did SZYM sell 200m worth of stock at $11 when it was trading at $13? And how did all those people know to dump the day before?

    I'm betting there is some bad news out there and these are just insiders dumping before the news is released. Same as early this year.
