Second Quarter Highlights:

  • Company reported net income from continuing operations attributable to The Andersons of $80.5 million, or $2.34 per diluted share, and adjusted net income of $82.2 million or $2.39 per diluted share

  • Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was $169.3 million for the quarter

  • Trailing twelve months adjusted EBITDA is $412.0 million

  • Renewables produced record pretax income attributable to The Andersons of $45.9 million

  • Plant Nutrient had its second-best quarter ever, generating pretax income of $38.3 million

  • Trade reported strong adjusted pretax income of $24.4 million

"I'm thrilled with the outstanding performance in this second quarter. The Renewables team nearly doubled last year's already strong performance, showing good yields and higher crush margins in our ethanol plants. Within Plant Nutrient, good inventory position management and high fertilizer prices led to higher margins and strong profitability," said President and CEO Pat Bowe. "In Trade, we entered the quarter with good basis ownership positions and as expected, we benefited from basis improvement during the quarter. In addition, we had very strong feed ingredients merchandising results in several of our locations. Global ag markets remain volatile, creating opportunities; our teams continue to execute well and remain focused on customer needs and operational excellence."

1 Non-GAAP financial measures; see appendix for explanations and reconciliations. 2 Measure represents only continuing operations of the Company.

Cash, Liquidity and Long-Term Debt Management

"Our businesses continue to generate strong operating cash flows and we remain disciplined in our approach to capital spending decisions," said Executive Vice President and CFO Brian Valentine. "We are well below our goal of long-term debt to EBITDA of less than 2.5 times, ending the quarter at 1.5 times, and are well-positioned to fund strategic growth projects with appropriate returns."

The company generated $134.6 million and $93.1 million in cash from operations before working capital changes during the second quarters of 2022 and 2021, respectively. Working capital remains high, primarily due to high commodity prices that impact the value of inventory and accounts receivable.

Second Quarter Segment Overview

Trade Results Improve Significantly; Year-to-Date Results Comparable to 2021

The Trade segment recorded pretax income and adjusted pretax income of $23.7 million and $24.4 million, respectively, for the quarter compared to adjusted pretax income of $14.1 million in the second quarter of 2021. With some reduction in commodity prices from Q1 highs, the segment benefited from basis appreciation and good selling margins for many of its products.

Despite initial delays in planting, crops in key draw areas are better than current USDA national ratings for corn and soybeans. Wheat ownership in our grain elevator assets is again earning space income. Continued merchandising opportunities and strong elevation margins are also expected to continue as global stocks are not projected to recover quickly from the recent global supply disruptions.

Trade's second quarter adjusted EBITDA was $46.6 million, compared to second quarter 2021 adjusted EBITDA of $32.7 million.

Renewables Generates Record Q2 Earnings of $45.9 million on Strong Margins; Co-Product Values and Merchandising Remain Strong

The Renewables segment reported pretax income attributable to the company of $45.9 million in the second quarter compared to pretax income attributable to the company of $23.5 million realized in the same period in 2021. Included in pretax income attributable to The Andersons is $8.9 million of USDA Biofuels Producer COVID relief funds. Also included in pretax income in the quarter is $24.4 million of positive mark-to-market impact, nearly $18 million of which are reversals of prior mark-to-market losses. This compared to positive mark-to-market impacts of $13.5 million in the second quarter of 2021.

The operating improvement was driven by strong overall production margins. Seasonal demand has been impacted by high gasoline prices, but higher exports have firmed ethanol prices. High corn costs for ethanol production in the western U.S. may negatively impact ethanol production there, while our eastern corn belt production facilities are well-positioned for corn supply.

Renewables had record second quarter EBITDA of $85.7 million in 2022, up $38.5 million from 2021 second quarter EBITDA of $47.2 million.

Plant Nutrient Posts Strong Second Quarter Results

The Plant Nutrient segment posted pretax income of $38.3 million, compared to 2021's pretax income of $24.0 million. As expected, well-positioned inventory and an overall favorable spring planting season led to strong margins that more than offset a volume decrease for our agricultural fertilizers, particularly within our wholesale nutrients, farm centers, and specialty liquids low-salt starters products.

Plant Nutrient's second quarter EBITDA was $46.8 million compared to 2021 second quarter EBITDA of $31.6 million.

Income Taxes; Corporate

The company recorded income taxes from continuing operations at an effective rate of 13.3% for the quarter due to the tax treatment of derivatives, hedging activities, and non-controlling interests. We now anticipate a full-year effective rate of approximately 18%-21%.
