Amyris Reports Third Quarter Financial Results

EMERYVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Amyris, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMRS), which applies its industrial synthetic biology platform to provide renewable alternatives to select petroleum-sourced products used in specialty chemical and transportation fuel markets worldwide, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011.

Aggregate revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 were $36.3 million versus $24.2 million in the third quarter of 2010, and cost of products sold was $35.7 million versus $22.9 million. Research and development expense increased to $23.4 million from $14.7 million, and sales, general and administrative expense increased to $21.2 million from $10.5 million. Third quarter 2011 GAAP net loss attributable to common stockholders was $43.7 million compared with $62.1 million in the same quarter of 2010. In connection with the completion of its initial public offering at the end of the third quarter of 2010, the Company took a non-cash beneficial conversion feature charge of $42.0 million related to the conversion of certain shares of the Company's preferred stock as well as shares of the Company's subsidiary, Amyris Brasil, into shares of the Company's common stock. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding this non-cash beneficial conversion feature charge and stock-based compensation expense, the net loss attributable to Amyris, Inc. common stockholders was $36.8 million compared to $17.5 million. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is included below.

The Company's balance at the end of the third quarter of cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities was $123.8 million.

"We have farnesene production underway and finishing operations in place for our squalane and diesel," said John Melo, CEO of Amyris. "Our customers continue to express their excitement about our products as we look to commence delivery in cosmetics, lubricants, diesel and other markets over the coming months."

Forward-Looking Statements

This release contains forward-looking statements, and any statements other than statements of historical facts could be deemed to be forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements include, among other things, statements regarding future events (such as production and delivery of and customer demand for our products) 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 in production and commercialization of products and other risks detailed in the "Risk Factors" section of Amyris's Form 10-K, as filed on March 14, 2011, and Form 10-Q, as filed on May 11, 2011 and August 11, 2011.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

Consolidated financial information has been presented in accordance with GAAP as well as on a non-GAAP basis. On a non-GAAP basis, 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. Non-GAAP information is not prepared under a comprehensive set of accounting rules and therefore, should only be read in conjunction with financial information reported under U.S. GAAP when understanding Amyris's operating performance. Reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial information is provided in the financial statement tables below.
