REX AMERICAN RESOURCES REPORTS FISCAL 2023 SECOND QUARTER NET INCOME PER SHARE ATTRIBUTABLE TO REX COMMON SHAREHOLDERS OF $0.52

REX American Resources Corporation (NYSE: REX) (“REX” or “the Company”) today reported financial results for its fiscal 2023 second quarter (“Q2 ‘23”) ended July 31, 2023. REX management will host a conference call and webcast today at 11:00 a.m. ET.

Conference Call:

212/231-2932

The webcast will be available for replay for 30 days.

REX American Resources’ Q2 ‘23 results principally reflect its interests in six ethanol production facilities. The One Earth Energy, LLC (“One Earth”) and NuGen Energy, LLC (“NuGen”) ethanol production facilities are consolidated, while the four other ethanol plants are reported as equity in income of unconsolidated ethanol affiliates.

REX’s Q2 ‘23 net sales and revenue were $212.0 million compared with $240.3 million in Q2 ‘22. The year-over-year net sales and revenue decline primarily reflects a reduction in the quantities sold of ethanol, as well as lower prices for ethanol, dried and modified distillers grains, and corn oil. Q2 ‘23 gross profit increased 30.1% to $18.4 million, from $14.1 million in Q2 ‘22, primarily reflecting lower corn and natural gas pricing. Income before income taxes and non-controlling interests was $16.1 million, compared with $19.2 million in the comparable year-ago period; however, excluding the benefit of COVID-19 relief grants received in Q2 '22 income before income taxes and noncontrolling interest increased 64.3% to $16.1 million in Q2 '23 from $9.8 million in Q2 '22. Q2 ‘22 benefited as the Company’s two consolidated plants received COVID-19 relief grants from the U.S.D.A. totaling approximately $7.8 million recorded as other income, and approximately $1.6 million recorded as equity income in unconsolidated affiliates.

Net income attributable to REX shareholders was $9.1 million in Q2 ‘23 compared with $11.2 million in Q2 ‘22. Q2 ‘23 basic and diluted net income per share attributable to REX common shareholders was $0.52, compared to $0.63 per share in Q2 ‘22. Per share results for the Q2 ‘23 and Q2 ‘22 periods are based on 17,460,000 and 17,772,000 diluted weighted average shares outstanding, respectively, reflecting the Company’s 3-for-1 common stock split effected August 5, 2022.

REX American Resources’ Chief Executive Officer, Zafar Rizvi, commented, “Our focus on operational efficiency resulted in REX delivering its twelfth consecutive quarter of profitability. During the quarter we continued our efforts on the One Earth Energy carbon capture project. We believe the One Earth project has the potential to deliver compelling financial returns and will position REX to play an important role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Earlier this year, our NuGen Energy facility reached an agreement to be part of Summit Carbon Solutions’ carbon capture and storage pipeline, which we believe will also advance our sustainability goals. In addition, Big River Resources previously entered into an agreement with Navigator CO2 whereby Navigator is to provide Big River with turnkey carbon capture, utilization and storage services.

“Our solid financial position and balance sheet flexibility, combined with our company-wide focus on operational excellence, allows us to continue to make return-focused investments to further strengthen our plants and their operational efficiency while also moving our carbon capture and sequestration initiatives forward.”

Balance Sheet

As of July 31, 2023, REX had cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments of $284.4 million, $31.2 million of which was at the parent company and $253.2 million of which was at its consolidated production facilities. This compares with cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments at January 31, 2023, of $280.9 million, $42.1 million of which was at the parent company and $238.8 million of which was at its consolidated production facilities.

Change in Accounting Principles

For the quarter ended July 31, 2023 the Company made a change in the method of accounting to begin classifying shipping and handling costs as cost of sales, instead of within selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A), as historically presented, in order to improve the comparability of gross profit and SG&A reported. The Company has applied a retrospective application of the new accounting policy.
