The clean energy firm Aemetis, Inc. (AMTX) has been experiencing a +45.57% increase in its stock price valued at $14.31 as of 12:02 p.m. EST today. The surge came following a five-year growth plan by the company today.
What is happening?
Aemetis is an American renewable energy, renewable fuel, and bioproducts company headquartered in Cupertino, California. Its goal is to acquire, develop, and commercialize products that can replace petroleum-based products. Aemetis has been generating Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) from dairy waste gas since 2006 using a pipeline system and expanding biogas and dairy waste digester network. Plants at Aemetis Carbon Zero produce energy that is carbon negative and is suitable for the use of planes, trucks, and ships. Aemetis fuels have a lower carbon footprint than conventional petroleum-based fuels across their entire lifecycle.
An updated five-year growth plan for Aemetis Inc. (NASDAQ: AMTX) position the company for revenues of $1.07 billion in 2025 and EBITDA in excess of $325 million. Aemetis is presenting its five-year plan today at the 2021 Credit Suisse Virtual Energy Conference, which is also being filed today with the SEC.
- For the years 2021 to 2025, the revenue growth plan is for a CAGR of 35%, while the EBITDA growth plan is for a CAGR of 109%.
- Renewable Natural Gas in California dairy and Aemetis’s “Carbon Zero” jet/diesel plants of negative carbon intensity cellulosic hydrogen production from waste almond orchard wood should drive the majority of growth for the company.
- The Aemetis Dairy RNG project plan expects revenues to increase from $9 million in 2021 to $175 million in 2025, as EBITDA will rise from $4 million in 2021 to $141 million in 2025.
- It is highly compelling that cellulosic sugars from orchard waste wood could represent more than $30 million of additional EBITDA per year for Aemetis at 90% less feedstock cost due to ethanol made from higher-value cellulosic sugars.
$1 billion revenue in the year 2025 represents less than one percent of the total addressable market for Aemetis, Inc.’s RNG and renewable fuels with negative carbon intensity. And that highlights the growth potential of the company for a longer period of time.
