Amyris did well in Q2, breaking more revenue records

August 8, 2021 |

In California, Amyris, Inc. reports another record quarter of underlying revenue, another record quarter of consumer revenue and significant gross margin expansion, and a strong cash position and robust outlook into second half 2021.

“With Q2 we completed another quarter of strong strategic and operational execution,” said John Melo, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We delivered record underlying revenue driven by record consumer revenue while significantly improving margins year-over-year. Two of our homegrown clean beauty brands, Biossance and Pipette, delivered record revenue with Biossance doubling revenue versus the prior year quarter. The performance of these brands is evidence of the rapidly growing consumer demand for high performance, affordable, and sustainable clean beauty products. In addition to our reported revenue, we had sales of $2.4 million that did not make the quarter cutoff. During Q2, we made significant efforts and investments in marketing and supply chain for the Q3 launch of our new brands: Rose Inc., JVN, Terasana and Olika which will add significant new revenue to our consumer portfolio in the second half.”

“We are making good progress with the construction of our new Brazil ingredients manufacturing plant and expect to complete construction by the end of this year,” Mr. Melo added. “Early in the quarter, we completed a strategic transaction with Ingredion for the exclusive licensing of our Reb M sweetener from fermentation. We are aggressively working towards human trials to support worldwide accessibility to our RNA COVID-19 vaccine. Pre-clinical results have demonstrated a strong potential to become a highly competitive booster and RNA delivery technology.”

“2021 is on track to be another record year with expected total revenue north of $400 million and positive adjusted EBITDA. As leaders in the creation of sustainable ingredients and products through clean chemistry and a strong product commercialization track record, we set ambitious operational and financial goals and are planning to reach $2 billion revenue in 2025. With our expanding ingredients pipeline and partnerships, strong manufacturing demand, and rapid consumer sales growth, we have confidence that we can achieve our objectives, while constantly finding ways to challenge the status quo and effect positive change for people and the planet,” concluded Mr. Melo.
