S&W Announces Third Quarter Fiscal 2024 Financial Results

LONGMONT, Colo., May 14, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — S&W Seed Company (Nasdaq: SANW) today announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2024.

Financial Highlights

  • Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2024 was $18.3 million, a 3.7% increase compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2023. Double Team™ sorghum revenue was $3.4 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2024 compared to $3.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2023.
  • Gross profit margin for the third quarter of fiscal 2024 was 27.4%, an improvement from 25.1% in the third quarter of fiscal 2023.
  • GAAP operating expenses were $7.7 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2024 compared to GAAP operating expenses of $8.3 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2023.
  • GAAP net loss was ($5.5) million, or ($0.13) per basic and diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2024 compared to GAAP net income of $32.1 million, or $0.75 per basic share and $0.74 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2023. A $38.3 million gain was recognized in the third quarter of fiscal 2023 related to the formation of Vision Bioenergy Oilseeds LLC, or Vision Bioenergy, a biofuel production partnership with Equilon Enterprises LLC (dba Shell Oil Products US, or Shell).
  • Adjusted EBITDA (see Table B) was ($1.2) million for the third quarter of fiscal 2024 compared to ($0.4) million for the third quarter of fiscal 2023.
  • Received $6.0 million payment from Shell in February 2024 as additional consideration related to the formation of Vision Bioenergy in February 2023. Received $1.0 million payment from Trigall Genetics S.A., or Trigall, in January 2024 as additional consideration related to the sale of 80% interest in Trigall Australia Pty Ltd., or Trigall Australia, a wheat development partnership, in December 2022. Received additional $0.4 million from Trigall in May 2024 for the sale of remaining 20% interest in Trigall Australia and assets used in the partnership.

Management Discussion

“S&W’s commercial launch of Double Team has gone exceedingly well, with expectations for the proprietary, high-value sorghum trait technology to be planted on more than 10% of all sorghum acres in the United States in 2024,” commented S&W Seed Company’s CEO, Mark Herrmann. “This rapid adoption of our high margin solution (Double Team has gross margins of greater than 60%) in just three years since its initial introduction has led to a strong improvement in company-wide gross margins, with year to date margins of 29.2% compared to 23.2% in the previous year. As total revenue in the future continues to shift more towards our robust sorghum technology portfolio, including product line extensions and new technology offerings planned over the next year, we expect to see continued margin expansion in support of our near-term goal of profitability.”

“While the Americas sorghum technology and forage businesses continue to meet all expectations, we are experiencing challenges to our international operations due to the expanding conflicts in the Middle East North Africa, or MENA, region we discussed last quarter. The war in Ukraine, the Sudan Civil War, and expanding geopolitical disruptions have caused the transition of many alfalfa growers in the MENA region to plant wheat this upcoming season and have caused disruptions to normal farming operations and seed distribution channels. The situation in the MENA region has worsened during the past quarter. The Department of Ministry in Saudi Arabia has recently discontinued their approval of import permits for all forages, which includes alfalfa and all grasses, as a means of water conservation. As these barriers of entry worsen in the MENA region, we expect to see an impact of approximately $6.0 to $7.0 million in revenue from our previously stated guidance. This decrease is within our mid-margin alfalfa products and will affect both volume and pricing expectations on a go-forward basis globally for the remainder of fiscal 2024.”

“As we have signaled in our previous earnings call, we have seen a shortage in supply within our Australia Pasture products, which has limited our ability to meet demand in Australia. This will result in a $3.0 to $4.0 million revenue reduction in the third and fourth quarters of fiscal 2024 within our low margin pasture products.”

“The above-mentioned challenges on our sales expectations will result in approximately a $1.0 to $1.5 million decrease in our adjusted EBITDA expectations for fiscal 2024, which includes an offset in our cost savings within our operations organization and other operating expenses on the efficiencies and synergies executed globally earlier in fiscal 2024. Further, we enhanced our cash position through the receipt of $6.0 million in new, non-dilutive payments received during the third fiscal quarter from Shell for our biofuels partnership, and $1.4 million from Trigall related to the sale of our interest in Trigall Australia and assets used in the partnership.”

“Beyond our current initiatives, including achieving rapid adoption of our commercial Double Team Grain and Forage sorghum technology solutions, we are focused on executing on a number of potential future growth drivers. The first is our plan to launch a new sorghum trait technology product in the United States expected to be commercially introduced–Prussic Acid Free. We also plan to introduce our first “stacked trait” by combining Double Team and Prussic Acid Free into a single seed option to add value for farmers and improve profitability for the Company. We expect to then expand internationally further through branded and licensing (Australia & Mexico) and through licensing agreements in other key international sorghum markets (Brazil & Argentina). We expect these initiatives will contribute to, and benefit from, anticipated global growth in sorghum acres over the next decade driven by a step change in productivity compared to competing crops, such as corn, which are less adapted for acres with limited water and higher temperatures. I am incredibly optimistic for the future opportunities we have in front of us to transform the sorghum industry.”

Financial Results

Total revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2024 was $18.3 million compared to total revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2023 of $17.7 million. The quarter-over-quarter increase in revenue was primarily attributable to a $1.5 million increase in non-dormant alfalfa sales in Argentina, offset by a $0.4 million decrease in Australia sales of non-dormant alfalfa, forage cereals, and pasture products due to dry planting conditions and a $0.4 million decrease in Double Team sorghum revenue due to timing of sales quarter over quarter.

Gross profit margin for the third quarter of fiscal 2024 was 27.4% compared to gross profit margin for the third quarter of fiscal 2023 of 25.1%. The improvement in gross profit margin was primarily driven by a 6.4% improvement related to Australian receivables for contracts denominated in U.S. dollar and a 0.2% increase driven by cost savings in production that improved sorghum margins, offset by a 2.0% decrease for inventory write-offs of dormant alfalfa, a 1.5% decrease in Double Team sorghum margins due to a decrease in volume sold, and a 0.8% decrease in non-dormant alfalfa margins in Australia’s domestic market.

GAAP operating expenses for the third quarter of fiscal 2024 were $7.7 million compared to GAAP operating expenses for the third quarter of fiscal 2023 of $8.3 million. This decrease was primarily driven by a $0.4 million improvement in selling, general, and administrative expenses and a $0.3 million improvement from research and development expenses.

Adjusted operating expenses (see Table A1) for the third quarter of fiscal 2024 were $6.3 million compared to $6.5 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2023. The $0.2 million decrease in adjusted operating expenses for the third quarter of fiscal 2024 was attributed to a $0.3 million decrease in research and development expenses offset by a $0.1 million increase in selling, general, and administrative expenses after excluding non-recurring transaction costs.

GAAP net loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2024 was ($5.5) million, or ($0.13) per basic and diluted share, compared to GAAP net income of $32.1 million, or $0.75 per basic share and $0.74 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2023.

Adjusted net loss (see Table A2) for the third quarter of fiscal 2024 was ($4.4) million, or ($0.10) per basic and diluted share, excluding interest expense – amortization of debt discount, non-recurring transaction costs, dividends accrued for participating securities and accretion, and equity in loss of equity method investee (Vision Bioenergy), net of tax. Adjusted net loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2023 was ($3.1) million, or ($0.07) per basic and diluted share, excluding interest expense – amortization of debt discount, other finance expenses, non-recurring transaction costs, dividends accrued for participating securities and accretion, gain on sale of business interest, and equity in loss of equity method investee (Vision Bioenergy), net of tax.

Adjusted EBITDA (see Table B) for the third quarter of fiscal 2024 was ($1.2) million compared to adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of fiscal 2023 of ($0.4) million.

Fiscal 2024 Guidance

The Company is updating its expectations for fiscal 2024 revenue to be in a range of $67.0 to $70.0 million. The Company reaffirms its expectations that its Americas operations will be in a range of $32.0 to $33.0 million, of which the Company’s high margin Double Team sorghum solutions is expected to continue be in a range of $11.5 to $14.0 million, representing an increase of 77% to 115% compared to fiscal 2023 for the product line. International operations are now expected to be in a range of $35.0 to $37.0 million, compared to previous expectations of $45.0 to $50.0 million. The change in international expectations is primarily due to the geopolitical disruptions worsening in the MENA region.

The Company now expects adjusted EBITDA to be in a range of ($8.5) million to ($6.0) million for fiscal 2024 compared to adjusted EBITDA of ($9.3) million in fiscal 2023. Previously, the Company expected adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of ($7.5) million to ($4.0) million for fiscal 2024.

As the partnership with Shell is accounted for as an equity method investment, it is not expected to have a material impact on S&W’s full-year financial results for fiscal 2024.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial results reported in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”), we have provided the following non-GAAP financial measures in this release and the accompanying tables: adjusted EBITDA; adjusted operating expenses; as well as adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per share. We use these non-GAAP financial measures internally to facilitate period-to-period comparisons and analysis of our operating performance and liquidity, and believe they are useful to investors as a supplement to GAAP measures in analyzing, trending and benchmarking the performance and value of our business. However, these measures are not intended to be a substitute for those reported in accordance with GAAP. These measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, even when similar terms are used to identify such measures.

For reconciliations of historical non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable financial measures under GAAP, see Tables A1, A2, and B accompanying this release. We have not reconciled our guidance for adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2024 to net loss because the reconciling line items that impact net loss, including interest expense, non-cash stock-based compensation, foreign currency loss, and equity in loss of equity method investee (Vision Bioenergy), net of tax, among others, are uncertain or out of our control and cannot be reasonably predicted. The actual amount of these items during fiscal 2024 will have a significant impact on net loss. Accordingly, a reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to its most directly comparable GAAP measure is not available without unreasonable efforts.

In order to calculate these non-GAAP financial measures, we make targeted adjustments to certain GAAP financial line items found on our condensed consolidated statement of operations, backing out non-recurring or unique items that we believe otherwise distort the underlying results and trends of the ongoing business. We have excluded the following items from one or more of our non-GAAP financial measures for the periods presented:

Selling, general and administrative expenses; operating expenses. We exclude from operating expenses depreciation and amortization and a portion of SG&A expense related to non-recurring transaction costs and, for our adjusted EBITDA calculation, also non-cash stock-based compensation. We exclude non-recurring transaction costs from our total operating expenses to provide investors a method to compare our operating results to prior periods and to peer companies, as such amounts can vary significantly based on the frequency of restructuring or acquisition events and the magnitude of restructuring or acquisition expenses.

Foreign currency loss. The foreign currency loss represents fluctuations from changes in exchange rates that are uncertain or out of our control and cannot be reasonably predicted. We believe it is useful to exclude this amount in order to better understand our business performance and allow investors to compare our results with peer companies.

Interest expense – amortization of debt discount. Amortization of debt discount and debt issuance costs are primarily related to our working capital lines of credit and term loans. These amounts are non-cash charges and are unrelated to our core performance during any particular period. We believe it is useful to exclude these amounts in order to better understand our business performance and allow investors to compare our results with peer companies.

Interest expense, net. Interest expense, net primary consists of interest incurred on our working capital credit facilities, the MFP Loan, the AgAmerica loan, and equipment capital leases. We believe it is useful to exclude these amounts to better understand our business performance and allow investors to compare our results with peer companies.

Dividends accrued for participating securities and accretion. Dividends accrued for participating securities and accretion relates to dividends accrued for the Series B convertible preferred stock and the accretion for the discount related to the warrants issued in conjunction with the Series B convertible preferred stock. We believe it is useful to exclude these amounts in order to better understand our business performance and allow investors to compare our results with peer companies.

Equity in loss of equity method investee (Vision Bioenergy), net of tax. This loss represents S&W’s percentage of Vision Bioenergy’s loss for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, as it has significant influence in the Company. We believe it is useful to exclude this amount in order to better understand our business performance and allow investors to compare our results with peer companies.

Descriptions of the non-GAAP financial measures included in this release and the accompanying tables are as follows:

Adjusted Operating Expenses. We define adjusted operating expenses as GAAP operating expenses adjusted to exclude depreciation and amortization, loss on disposal of property, plant and equipment, and non-recurring transaction costs. We believe that the use of adjusted operating expenses is useful to investors and other users of our financial statements in evaluating our operating performance because it provides a method to compare our operating results to prior periods and to peer companies after making adjustments for depreciation and amortization and amounts that are not expected to recur. 

Adjusted net loss and loss per share. We define adjusted net loss as net (loss) income attributable to S&W Seed Company less interest expense – amortization of debt discount, non-recurring transaction costs, dividends accrued for participating securities and accretion, gain on sale of business interest, and equity in loss of equity method investee (Vision Bioenergy), net of tax. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information for evaluating our operating performance.

Adjusted EBITDA. We define adjusted EBITDA as net (loss) income attributable to S&W Seed Company adjusted to exclude interest expense, net, interest expense – amortization of debt discount, benefit from income taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-recurring transaction costs, non-cash stock-based compensation, foreign currency loss, gain on sale of business interest, gain on disposal of intangible assets, gain on sale of equity investment, equity in loss of equity method investee (Vision Bioenergy), net of tax, and dividends accrued for participating securities and accretion. We believe that the use of adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors and other users of our financial statements in evaluating our operating performance because it provides them with an additional tool to compare business performance across companies and across periods. We use adjusted EBITDA in conjunction with traditional GAAP operating performance measures as part of our overall assessment of our performance, for planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget, to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies and to communicate with our board of directors concerning our financial performance. Management does not place undue reliance on adjusted EBITDA as its only measure of operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a substitute for other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP.
