Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Verde AgriTech Plc (TSX: “NPK”) (OTCQB: “AMHPF”) (“Verde” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce its financial results for the first quarter of 2022 (“Q1 2022”).

Q1 2022 Financials

  • Revenue increased by 1,260% in Q1 2022, to $11,304,000 compared to $831,000 in Q1 2021.
  • Revenue in Brazilian Real (“R$”) increased by 1,196% in Q1 2022, to R$46,627,000 compared to R$3,597,000 in Q1 2021.
  • Sales by volume increased by 574% in Q1 2022, to 111,667 tonnes sold compared to 16,558 tonnes sold in Q1 2021.
  • Gross margin increased to 77% in Q1 2022, compared to 41% in Q1 2021.
  • EBITDA before non-cash events increased to $3,678,000 in Q1 2022, compared to an operating loss of $887,000 in Q1 2021.
  • Net profit increased to $3,033,000 in Q1 2022, compared to a net loss of $1,811,000 in Q1 2021.

Subsequent Events

  • In April 2022, the Company announced that Plant 2 was on track to start production in Q3 2022, initially with a 1,200,000 tpy production capacity, as announced by the Company in the press release published on March 03, 2022. The final Plant 2 capacity of 2,400,000 tpy is expected to be reached in Q4 2022. Therefore, by Q4 2022, with Plant 2’s expansion, overall production capacity is expected to be 3,000,000 tpy, establishing Verde as Brazil’s largest potash producer.
  • In April 2022, the Market Study (the “Study”) that will underpin the preparation of the New Pre-Feasibility Study announced by the Company on March 01, 2021 (the “PFS”) was concluded. The Study calculated the potential Brazilian agricultural market for potash, sulphur, and the micronutrients zinc, boron, copper and manganese. The Study was conducted between May 2021 and March 2022, it will be an integral part of the PFS. The PFS will contemplate a scenario of total annual production of up to 50,000,000 tonnes per year (“tpy”) of Verde’s Product, equivalent to 63% of the total Brazilian potash consumption in 2021.
  • In April 2022, Bio Revolution, Verde’s newest technology that enables the incorporation of microorganisms to mineral fertilizers, was launched by the Company.[1]​ K Forte® will be the first fertilizer in the world to use Bio Revolution technology. Bacillus aryabhattai, widely renowned in agriculture for its multiple benefits, will be the first microorganism to be incorporated into Verde’s Product. ​Verde’s Plant 1 is already equipped with a facility for deploying Bio Revolution. At Plant 2, a proportionally larger Bio Revolution facility will be built, with operations expected by the end of 2022.​
  • In May 2022, Verde announced an increase in its 2022 guidance, previously published on January 10, 2022. The revised 2022 guidance provides for sales of 1,000,000 tonnes of Verde’s multinutrient potassium products, BAKS® and K Forte® sold internationally as Super Greensand® (the “Product”), with revenue of C$109.09 million, EBITDA of C$49.06 million and net earnings per share (“EPS”) of C$0.87. The 2023 guidance provides for sales of 2,000,000 tonnes.

 

“2022 has started in a very shaky manner for the agricultural market globally. In Brazil, which depends on imports for over 96% of its potash supplies, the concern with fertilizers has been at the forethought of most farmers. Despite the record rainfalls during the period, which postponed Verde’s delivery of an additional 25,133 tonnes of Product in Q1 2022, our Team successfully reached a growing portion of Brazil’s market. Verde’s target towards the delivery of 1,000,000 tonnes by the end of 2022 is further boosted by these latest results.”  declared Verde’s Founder, President & CEO Cristiano Veloso.

Net Profits and EPS

The Company generated a net profit of $3,033,000 for Q1 2022, an increase of $4,844,000 compared to a net loss of $1,811,000 for Q1 2021. The basic earnings per share was $0.060 for Q1 2022, compared to loss per share of $0.036 for Q1 2021.

 

Product Sales

Sales by volume increased by 574% in Q1 2022, to 111,667 tonnes sold compared to 16,558 tonnes sold in Q1 2021.

 

Revenue

Revenue from sales increased by 1,260% in Q1 2022, to $11,304,000 from the sale of 111,667 tonnes of the Product, at $101 per tonne sold; compared to $831,000 in Q1 2021 from the sale of 16,558 tonnes of the Product, at $50 per tonne sold.

Revenue per tonne excluding freight expenses (FOB price) improved by 105% in Q1 2022, to $75 compared to $36 in Q1 2021.

The KCl price increased by 204% in Q1 2022, compared to Q1 2021. Verde did not, however, see a proportional increase in its pricing for Q1 2022 sales because it had sold part of its Q1 production in Q4 2021 and discounts are applied.

Revenue per tonne in Q1 2022 was higher than Q1 2021 mainly due to:

  1. Product volume sold as CIF (Cost Insurance and Freight) increased from 34% of total sales in Q1 2021 to 60% in Q1 2022.
  2. Potassium Chloride CIF (Minas Gerais) price increased from US$315-395 per tonne in Q1 2021 to US$800-US$1,200 per tonne in Q1 2022 (as reported by Acerto Limited, a market intelligence firm).

 

Production costs

Production costs include all direct costs from mining, processing, and the addition of other nutrients to the Product, such as Sulphur and Boron. They also include the logistics costs from the mine to the factory and related salaries.

Production costs increased by 442% in Q1 2022, to $2,654,000 compared to $490,000 in Q1 2021. This was due to a 574% increase in volume sold, from 16,558 tonnes in Q1 2022 to 111,667 tonnes in Q1 2021. Cost per tonne decreased by 20% in Q1 2022, to $24 compared to $30 in Q1 2021. This reduction was mainly driven by fixed cost dilution in Q1 2022.

This increase is in line with the Company’s accelerated growth strategy.

Fees paid to independent sales agents increased by 1431% in Q1 2022, to $136,000 compared to $9,000 in

Product delivery freight expenses

Product delivery freight expenses increased by 1197% in Q1 2022, to $2,973,000 compared to $229,000 in Q1 2021, as the Company has significantly increased the volume sold as CIF (Cost Insurance and Freight), up from 34% of total sales in Q1 2021 to 60% in Q1 2022 and due to higher fuel prices, which increased 44% in Q1 2022 compared to Q1 2021.

Despite the reduction, salary costs have increased in 2022 as they include additional administrative employees, with professional headcount in the team increasing from an average of 26 in Q1 2021 to 57 in Q1 2022 to help support the Company’s growth.

 

Legal, professional, consultancy and audit costs

Legal and professional fees include legal, professional, consultancy fees along with accountancy, audit and regulatory costs. Consultancy fees are consultants employed in Brazil, such as accounting services, patent process, lawyer’s fees and regulatory consultants.

About Verde AgriTech

Verde is an agricultural technology Company that produces potash fertilizers. Our purpose is to improve the health of all people and the planet. Rooting our solutions in nature, we make agriculture healthier, more productive, and profitable.

Verde is a fully integrated Company:  it mines and processes its main feedstock from its 100% owned mineral properties, then sells and distributes the Product.

Verde’s focus on research and development has resulted in one patent and eight patents pending. Among its proprietary technologies are Cambridge Tech, 3D Alliance, MicroS Technology, N Keeper, and Bio Revolution.[5] Currently, the Company is fully licensed to produce up to 2.8 million tonnes per year of its multinutrient potassium fertilizers K Forte® and BAKS®, sold internationally as Super Greensand®.[6]

By the end of 2022, Verde aims to become Brazil’s largest potash producer by capacity.[7] Verde has a combined measured and indicated mineral resource of 1.47 billion tonnes at 9.28% K2O and an inferred mineral resource of 1.85 billion tonnes at 8.60% K2O (using a 7.5% K2O cut-off grade).[8] This amounts to 295.70 million tonnes of potash in K2O. For context, in 2021 Brazil’s total consumption of potash in K2O was 7.92 million.[9]

Brazil ranks second in global potash demand and is its single largest importer, currently depending on external sources for over 96% of its potash needs. In 2021, potash accounted for approximately 2% of all Brazilian imports by dollar value.

Verde announces 169% increase in revenue in Q3 2021 and revises upwards its target for the year

(All figures are in Canadian dollars, unless stated otherwise. Average exchange rate in Q3 2021: C$1.00 = R$4.26)

Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Verde AgriTech Plc (TSX: “NPK”) (OTCQB: “AMHPF”) (“Verde” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce its financial results for the third quarter, ended on September 30, 2021 (“Q3 2021”).

 

Q3 2021 Financials

  • Revenue increased by 169%, to $10,651,000 compared to $3,956,000 in the third quarter of 2020 (“Q3 2020”).
  • Revenue in Brazilian Real (“R$”) increased by 206%, to R$45,409,000 compared to R$14,815,000 in Q3 2020.
  • Gross margin increased to 77% in Q3 2021, compared to 67% in Q3 2020.
  • Operating profit before non-cash events increased by 124%, to $3,665,000 compared to $1,635,000 in Q3 2020.
  • Trade and other receivables increased by 141%, to $8,238,000 compared to $3,415,000 in Q3 2020.
  • Sales by volume increased by 45%, to 153,674 tonnes sold compared to 105,769 tonnes sold in Q3 2020.
  • Net profit increased by 192% in Q3 2021, to $3,183,000, compared to $1,090,000 in Q3 2020.

“Our hard work over the years is yielding consistent growth since production started in 2017. In Q3 2021 the effort was relentless as we sought to meet our heightened target, which was achieved thanks to the high quality and commitment of our team. We will endeavour to maintain an exponential growth expansion for the foreseeable future”, said Cristiano Veloso, Verde’s Founder and CEO.

 

Subsequent Events

  • In October 2021, the Company has secured $3.75 million (R$16 million) in loan agreements to fully cover the capital expenditure for the construction of Plant 2. The first $1.17 million (R$5 million) was released to the Company by Santander. The remaining $2.58 million (R$11 million) was approved in the same month by Santander and Bradesco, to be drawn down according to the project requirements. The total construction cost of Plant 2 is expected to be $5.16 million (R$22 million) with $1.41 million (R$6 million) invested through internally generated cashflow.

“From September onwards, market demand has outstripped Plant 1’s operational capacity. Therefore, after having invested over C$66 million to reach our current rate of production, we are proud to finance the tripling of current capacity based on debt and cashflow alone. Many shareholders have continuously supported Verde over the years – it is therefore gratifying to reciprocate by growing through a shareholder-friendly dilution-free strategy”, declared Mr. Veloso.

 

2021 Guidance

The Company is pleased to announce another increase in its 2021 guidance. The new target is set at R$110 million of revenue for 2021, which would represent an increase of 120% to the Company’s original guidance of R$50 million. If achieved, this new target will represent a 212% growth Year-on-Year (“YoY”).

Q3 2021 compared with Q3 2020

For Q3 2021 the Company generated a net profit of $3,182,000, an increase of $2,093,000 compared to Q3 2020. The earnings per share was $0.06, compared to $0.02 for Q3 2020.

Product Sales

In Q3 2021, the Company sold 153,674 tonnes, an increase of 45% in comparison to Q3 2020. BAKS® accounted for approximately 10% of Verde’s sales in Q3 2021.

 

Revenue

Revenue from sales for Q3 2021 was $10,651,000 from the sale of 153,674 tonnes of the Product, at $69 per tonne sold. Despite the 14% Brazilian Real devaluation against the Canadian Dollar, revenue per tonne was higher than Q3 2020 ($37 per tonne sold) mainly due to three factors:

  1. Product volume sold as CIF (Cost Insurance and Freight) increased from 14% of total sales in Q3 2020 to 50% in Q3 2021.
  2. Potassium Chloride CIF (Minas Gerais) price increased from US$290-US$310 per tonne in Q3 2020 to US$515-790 per tonne in Q3 2021 (as reported by Acerto Limited, a market intelligence firm).
  3. BAKS has a higher sales price per tonne than the Product, it was launched in Q4 2020 and in Q3 2021 it accounted for 10.5% of the total volume sold.

 

Production costs

Production costs in R$ include all direct costs from mining, processing, and the addition of the other nutrients such as Sulfur and Boron, the logistics from the mine to the factory and related salaries. Production costs for Q3 2021 were $2,452,000, an increase of $1,136,000 compared to Q3 2020. Cost per tonne for the quarter was $16 compared to $12 for the same period in 2020. This increase was due in large part to higher fuel prices, which increased 80% in Q3 2021 compared to Q3 2020, and due to the production of BAKS, which has a higher cost per tonne because its feedstock includes other nutrients that Verde purchases from third parties.

Sales and marketing expenses

Sales and marketing expenses include employees’ salaries, car rentals, travel within Brazil, hotel expenses, customer relationship management (CRM) software licenses, and the promotion of the Product in marketing events. Expenses increased by $483,000 in Q3 2021 compared to Q3 2020 mainly due to a further expansion of Verde’s sales and marketing team, with professional headcount increasing from 32 in Q3 2020 to 57 in Q3 2021. This increase is in line with the Company’s accelerated growth strategy. The Company’s sales and marketing team had 50 employees in Q2 2021.

Fees paid to independent sales agents

As part of Verde’s marketing and sales strategy, the Company pays out commissions to its independent sales agents. Fees paid to sales independent agents increased by $176,000 in Q3 2021 compared to Q3 2020. This was mainly due to an overestimated provision of $80,000 for Q1 and Q2 2020, which left a surplus that was therefore deducted from the Q3 2020 costs. Taking into account the surplus, the expenses increased by $96,000 for Q3 2021, due to increased sales success.

 

Product delivery freight expenses

Product delivery freight expenses were $2,969,000 higher in Q3 2021 compared to Q3 2020 as the Company has significantly increased the volume sold as CIF (Cost Insurance and Freight), up from 14% of total sales in 2020 to 50% in 2021 and due to higher fuel prices, which increased 80% in Q32021 compared to Q3 2020.

The Company had 47 administrative employees in Q2 2021.

 

Legal, professional, consultancy and audit costs

Legal and professional fees include legal, professional, consultancy fees along with accountancy, audit and regulatory costs. Consultancy fees are consultants employed in Brazil, such as accounting services, patent process, lawyer’s fees and regulatory consultants. The costs in Q3 2021 are $26,000 lower than Q3 2020 mainly due to audit cost reduction and Brazilian Real devaluation against Canadian dollar.

 

IT/Software expenses

IT/Software expenses include software licenses such as Microsoft Office, CRM and enterprise resource planning (ERP). In Q3 2021 expenses were $82,000, an increase of $56,000 on Q3 2020 due to an increase in the number of software licenses used by the Company.

Taxes and licence expenses include general taxes, product branding and licence costs. In Q3 2021, expenses were $5,000 compared to $9,000 in Q3 2020.

 

Share Based and Bonus Payments (Non-Cash Event)

These costs represent the expense associated with stock options granted to employees and directors and non-cash bonuses paid to key management.

Share Based Payments costs in Q3 2021 represent the expense associated with stock options granted to employees as part of the Company’s long-term incentive programme. These are measured under the Black-Scholes Model.

Verde revises upwards its 2021 revenue target, and provides update on sales and Plant 2 construction

Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Verde AgriTech Plc (TSX: “NPK”) (OTCQB: “AMHPF”) (“Verde” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce an increase in its 2021 revenue guidance to R$90 million and to provide an update regarding sales and the construction of its second production facility (“Plant 2”).  

As disclosed in the press release published on November 16, 2020, the construction of Plant 2 was scheduled to begin in the second half of 2021. Groundbreaking took place in August 2021, and Plant 2 is expected to reach commercial production by Q3 2022.   

Plant 2 will have an operational capacity of 1,200,000 tonnes per year (“tpy”). The new plant will raise Verde’s overall production capacity to 1,800,000 tpy. 

“The Company is sold out until mid-November 2021, with new orders being pushed for delivery thereafter. Plant 2 will ensure a 200% increase in production and will be essential to help meet the market’s growing demand for Verde’s products. We are proud to be able to fund its construction through cash flow and debt, therefore avoiding the issuance of new shares”, declared Cristiano Veloso, Verde’s Founder and CEO. 

Capital Expenditure  

Plant 2 capital expenditure totals 22 million Brazilian Reais (“R$”), with R$6 million to be invested through internally generated cash flow and R$16 million to be debt-financed. The Company is in advanced negotiations with a number of financial institutions and expects the loan agreements will be concluded by Q4 2021.   

2021 Guidance 

Verde is pleased to increase its 2021 revenue target to R$90 million. This represents an 80% increase to its original guidance of R$50 million revenue. If achieved, the new target will represent a 155 growth Year-on-Year (“YoY”).  

“Blitzscaling is never an easy endeavour, but I’m confident we have built the right team to continue succeeding at this challenge. It is still day 1 at Verde”, concluded Mr. Veloso.

Revenue

Revenue from sales for Q2 2021 was $5,376,000 from the sale of 96,233 tonnes of the Product, at $56 per tonne sold. Despite the 20% Brazilian Real devaluation against the Canadian Dollar, revenue per tonne was higher than Q2 2020 ($35 per tonne sold) mainly due to three factors:  

  1. Product volume sold as CIF (Cost Insurance and Freight) increased from 6% of total sales in Q2 2020 to 43% in Q2 2021.  
  2. Potassium Chloride CIF (Minas Gerais) price increased from US$287-US$303 per tonne in Q2 2020 to US$395-535 per tonne in Q2 2021 (as per Acerto Limited report).  
  3. BAKS® has a higher sales price per tonne than the Product, it was launched on Q4 2020 and in Q2 2021 it has accounted for 13% of the total volume sold. 

 

Production costs

Production costs include all direct costs from mining, processing, and the addition of the other nutrients such as Sulfur and Boron, logistics from the mine to the factory and supply chain salaries, which are paid in R$. Production costs for Q2 2021 were $1,498,000, an increase of $543,000 compared to Q2 2020. Cost per tonne for the quarter was $16 compared to $13 for the same period in 2020. This increase was due in large part to higher fuel prices, which increased 45% in Q2 2021 compared to Q2 2020, and due to the production of BAKS, which has a higher cost per tonne due to the addition of other nutrients to the Product.
