– Successfully Completed Public Listing in June, Resulting in Cash and Cash Equivalent Balance of $471 million –

– Reaffirming Origin 1 and 2 Capital Budget, Production Timeline and Financing –

– Increased Contracted Offtake Agreements and Capacity Reservations to $3.5 billion –

WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif., August 12, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Origin Materials, Inc. ("Origin," "Origin Materials," or the "Company") (Nasdaq: ORGN, ORGNW), the world’s leading carbon negative materials company with a mission to enable the world’s transition to sustainable materials, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2021.

"I am incredibly proud of what the Origin team has accomplished so far in 2021, continuing our mission to enable the world’s transition to sustainable materials. We have taken significant steps to commercialize the business by broadening our customer base beyond CPG into apparel, automotive and industrial end-markets, while also substantially increasing customer demand, strengthening the leadership team, and making significant capital available to the business through the combination of Artius Acquisition, Inc. with Origin. Importantly, we remain on track for the start of production for Origin 1 and Origin 2," said Rich Riley, Co-Chief Executive Officer of Origin.

Mr. Riley added, "Since announcing the business combination with Artius in February, we have more than tripled our commitments from our customers and partners. On the operational side, we have made steady progress against project milestones for Origin 1 and 2 and are pleased to reaffirm our capital budget and our expectation that we will be able to fully fund the construction of both plants using funds from our own balance sheet and previously indicated traditional project financing sources on our stated timelines. We do not anticipate any additional equity capital will be required to finance our current business plan. We continue to expect the construction of Origin 1 will be completed by the end of 2022 and Origin 2 will be completed by the middle of 2025."

Key Company Highlights

Origin Materials has increased signed offtake agreements and capacity reservations to $3.5 billion from $1 billion in February. The Company also implemented the following new and expanded partnerships and customer relationships:

Origin 1 and Origin 2 Financing and Construction Update

As part of our ongoing project construction review, including construction costs and timeline to account for the recent increase in inflation and supply chain disruption, the Company reaffirms the capital budget for the construction of Origin 1 and Origin 2, and is confirming its previously disclosed start of production timelines. Based on preliminary feedback from leading financial institutions that have expertise in financing similarly sized capital projects, the Company reaffirms its expectations that the capital projects for Origin 1 and Origin 2 can be fully funded from its existing cash on hand and previously indicated traditional project financing sources.

Origin has selected Worley, one of the world’s leading engineering organizations as its engineering partner for both Origin 1 and front-end engineering partner for Origin 2.

The Company continues to expect the construction of Origin 1 to be completed before the end of 2022, with commissioning and production at the plant beginning immediately thereafter. Origin is pleased to be working with leading capital projects partners Koch Modular Process Systems, Worley, KSH Solutions, and Jacobs Engineering Group. As of June 30, 2021, installation of most foundations for building and process areas was significantly underway and on track for timely Origin 1 mechanical completion. In addition, Origin had also completed fabrication of the modules that contain all the equipment used for the conversion of biomass feedstock into high value chemicals. By the end of 2021, Origin expects the modules to be lifted and erected, roughly four months ahead of schedule.

Origin continues to expect the construction of Origin 2 will be complete by the middle of 2025. Further, the Company anticipates it will select the Owner’s Engineer and site by the end of 2021, that Origin 2’s Front End Loading (FEL)1 and FEL2 project development stages will be completed in the middle of 2022, and that a construction contract will be issued before the end of Q1 2023. The Company is working with Worley, Deloitte and Fisher International on site selection. Origin expects the engineering, procurement and construction stage of Origin 2 to begin in the end of 2022 and proceed through 2025.

Results for Second Quarter 2021

Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were $471 million as of June 30, 2021.

Operating expenses for the second quarter were $6.7 million compared to $1.7 million in the prior year period.

Adjusted EBITDA loss was $3.0 million for the second quarter compared to a loss of $1.6 million in the prior-year period.

Net income was $62.5 million for the second quarter compared to a net loss of $1.7 million in the prior-year period.

Shares outstanding as of June 30, 2021 were 136.7 million excluding 4.5 million shares held by a certain stockholder that are subject to forfeiture based on share price performance targets previously disclosed in our filings.

Full Year 2021 Outlook

Based on current business conditions, business trends and other factors, the Company expects to be within its previously provided guidance:

  • Adjusted EBITDA loss of up to $25 million

  • Capital spending of up to $111 million

For a reconciliation of a non-GAAP figure to the applicable GAAP figure please see the table captioned ‘Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results' set forth at the end of this press release. These expectations do not consider, or give effect to, among other things, unforeseen events, including changes in global economic conditions.

About Origin Materials, Inc.

Headquartered in West Sacramento, Origin Materials is the world's leading carbon negative materials company. Origin’s mission is to enable the world’s transition to sustainable materials. Over the past 10 years, Origin has developed a platform for turning the carbon found in inexpensive, plentiful, non-food biomass such as sustainable wood residues into useful materials while capturing carbon in the process. Origin’s patented technology platform can help revolutionize the production of a wide range of end products, including clothing, textiles, plastics, packaging, car parts, tires, carpeting, toys, and more with a ~$1 trillion addressable market. In addition, Origin’s technology platform is expected to provide stable pricing largely decoupled from the petroleum supply chain, which is exposed to more volatility than supply chains based on sustainable wood residues. Origin’s patented drop-in core technology, economics and carbon impact are supported by a growing list of major global customers and investors.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement the Company’s financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company also uses non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted EBITDA, as supplemental measures to review and assess the Company’s operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income or loss adjusted for (i) stock-based compensation expense, (ii) depreciation and amortization, (iii) interest expense, net of capitalized interest, (iv) change in fair value of derivative liability, (v) change in fair value of warrants liability, (vi) change in fair value of earnout liability, and (vii) other income, net. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information about the Company’s operating results, enhance the overall understanding of the Company’s past performance and future prospects and allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by the Company’s management in its financial and operational decision-making.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not defined under U.S. GAAP and are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and when assessing the Company’s operating performance, investors should not consider them in isolation. In addition, calculations of this non-GAAP financial information may be different from calculations used by other companies, and therefore comparability may be limited.

The Company mitigates these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable U.S. GAAP performance measures, all of which should be considered when evaluating our performance.

For more information on this non-GAAP financial measure, please see the table captioned "Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results" set forth at the end of this press release.

Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results

We believe that the presentation of Adjusted Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization (Adjusted EBITDA) is appropriate to provide additional information to investors about our operating profitability adjusted for certain non-cash items, non-routine items that we do not expect to continue at the same level in the future, as well as other items that are not core to our operations. Further, we believe Adjusted EBITDA provides a meaningful measure of operating profitability because we use it for evaluating our business performance, making budgeting decisions, and comparing our performance against that of other peer companies using similar measures.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income or loss adjusted for (i) stock-based compensation expense, (ii) depreciation and amortization, (iii) interest expense, net of capitalized interest, (iv) change in fair value of derivative liability, (v) change in fair value of warrants liability, (vi) change in fair value of earnout liability, and (vii) other income, net.
