The Grain & Ethanol Group's operating income of $2.5 million in the third quarter was below its year earlier result of $8.9 million. The grain business benefited from increased gross profit on grain sales due to the early harvest; however, this was more than offset by a significant decrease in space income, due to basis losses. The ethanol LLC's had a modest loss this quarter primarily because the company had previously, based on its view of the ethanol market at the time, contracted for ethanol sales at minimal margins. The ethanol results were also impacted by rising prices of certain inputs and higher than anticipated maintenance and repair costs. Third quarter 2010 income from the group's investment in Lansing Trade Group was down slightly from the prior year. Total third quarter revenues for the Grain & Ethanol Group were $498 million; including $219 million of grain and ethanol sales made in accordance with origination and marketing agreements between the company and its ethanol joint ventures. In the third quarter of 2009, the group's total revenues were $451 million and included $176 million of the previously mentioned sales. The Grain & Ethanol Group's operating income through the first nine months was a record $42.8 million in 2010 and $23.5 million in 2009. This considerable year-to-date income differential was due to increased performance in all businesses - grain, ethanol, and Lansing Trade Group. Although space income in the grain business was down significantly during the third quarter, space income through September is up from the prior year. Total revenues through September 2010 and 2009 were $1.5 billion and $1.4 billion, respectively.

The Plant Nutrient Group earned an operating income of $1.5 million during the third quarter of 2010 on revenues of $129 million. In the same three month period of 2009, the group had an operating loss of $2.8 million on revenues of $70 million. Volume was up 60 percent due to re-stocking of the nutrient pipeline spurred by rising grain prices, an early harvest, and favorable application weather throughout the Midwest. Margins were also improved year over year, during the third quarter, due to price escalation. The group's first nine months' operating income this year was $21.2 million on $461 million of revenues. Last year, its operating income through the first nine months was $9.6 million on revenues of $380 million. This year to year improvement was due primarily to a significant increase in volume as spring and fall application rates of potassium and phosphate returned to more normal levels and to the re-stocking which occurred in the third quarter.

The Rail Group had an operating income of $0.1 million in the third quarter of 2010 on revenues of $22 million. The group lost $1.1 million and had revenues of $21 million during the same three month period a year ago. Gross profit from the leasing business was down for the quarter due primarily to lower utilization rates and the corresponding storage expense from idle assets. The average utilization rate for the quarter was 72.9 percent in comparison to 74.4 percent for the same period last year. Increased leasing activity late in the quarter caused the utilization as of September 30 to increase to 75.6 percent. The group has approximately 22,600 cars and locomotives, which is down from the prior year total of 24,000 units due to the selective scrapping of over 1,500 railcars this year. All other operations showed nice improvement this quarter. The short-line railroad in which the group invested last quarter showed solid performance. The group's first nine months operating income this year was $1.2 million on $73 million of revenues. In 2009, operating income through September was $0.4 million and revenues were $72 million.

The Turf & Specialty Group reported an operating loss of $0.3 million in the third quarter for both this year and the prior year. A $1.3 million non-recurring gain was recognized in the prior year. Third quarter revenues for the group were $23 million, which is up $2 million from the prior year. Both turf products tonnage and gross profit per ton increased during the third quarter, in comparison to the prior year. Through the first nine months of 2010, the group's operating income was $4.9 million on $106 million of revenues. Last year, its operating income was a record $5.8 million for the same period on similar revenues.

The Retail Group had an operating loss of $1.7 million in the third quarter of 2010 on revenues of $34 million. In the comparable period last year, the group's operating loss was $2.3 million and total revenues were $37 million. Through nine months, the group recorded a loss of $2.4 million and total revenues of $108 million. Last year through September the group lost $2.1 million on total revenues of $120 million.

"We had mixed results this quarter," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Mike Anderson. "We were pleased with the performance of the Plant Nutrient Group, which typically has little to no income during the third quarter. The increase in railcar lease renewals at the end of the quarter and the resulting increase in the utilization rate were encouraging to see. Conversely, our Grain & Ethanol Group's results for the quarter were lower due primarily to the decreased performance of our ethanol business. Our grain business was impacted by a decline in wheat basis, which we expect to be regained through the balance of the wheat crop year. As it relates to our results through September, the Grain & Ethanol Group had record results of $42.8 million, and our Plant Nutrient Group is having their second best year, surpassed only by the unprecedented earnings seen in 2008," added Mr. Anderson.

The company will host a webcast on Thursday, November 4, 2010 at 11:00 A.M. ET, to discuss its performance. This can be accessed under the heading "Investor" on its website at www.andersonsinc.com.

The Andersons, Inc. Reports Third Quarter Results

Earnings Of $0.08 Per Diluted Share

Earnings of $2.09 Per Diluted Share Through September

PR Newswire

MAUMEE, Ohio, Nov. 3, 2010  /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Andersons, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANDE) today announced third quarter net income attributable to the company of $1.4 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, on revenues of $707 million.  In the third quarter of 2009, the company reported similar results of $1.3 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, on revenues of $601 million.  For the first nine months of 2010, the company earned $38.8 million, or $2.09 per diluted share, on revenues of $2.2 billion.  In the same period of 2009, The Andersons reported results of $22.1 million, or $1.20 per diluted share, on $2.1 billion of revenues.

The Grain & Ethanol Group's operating income of $2.5 million in the third quarter was below its year earlier result of $8.9 million.  The grain business benefited from increased gross profit on grain sales due to the early harvest; however, this was more than offset by a significant decrease in space income, due to basis losses.  The ethanol LLC's had a modest loss this quarter primarily because the company had previously, based on its view of the ethanol market at the time, contracted for ethanol sales at minimal margins.  The ethanol results were also impacted by rising prices of certain inputs and higher than anticipated maintenance and repair costs.  Third quarter 2010 income from the group's investment in Lansing Trade Group was down slightly from the prior year.  Total third quarter revenues for the Grain & Ethanol Group were $498 million; including $219 million of grain and ethanol sales made in accordance with origination and marketing agreements between the company and its ethanol joint ventures.  In the third quarter of 2009, the group's total revenues were $451 million and included $176 million of the previously mentioned sales.  The Grain & Ethanol Group's operating income through the first nine months was a record $42.8 million in 2010 and $23.5 million in 2009.  This considerable year-to-date income differential was due to increased performance in all businesses – grain, ethanol, and Lansing Trade Group. Although space income in the grain business was down significantly during the third quarter, space income through September is up from the prior year.  Total revenues through September 2010 and 2009 were $1.5 billion and $1.4 billion, respectively.

The Plant Nutrient Group earned an operating income of $1.5 million during the third quarter of 2010 on revenues of $129 million.  In the same three month period of 2009, the group had an operating loss of $2.8 million on revenues of $70 million.  Volume was up 60 percent due to re-stocking of the nutrient pipeline spurred by rising grain prices, an early harvest, and favorable application weather throughout the Midwest.  Margins were also improved year over year, during the third quarter, due to price escalation.  The group's first nine months' operating income this year was $21.2 million on $461 million of revenues.  Last year, its operating income through the first nine months was $9.6 million on revenues of $380 million.  This year to year improvement was due primarily to a significant increase in volume as spring and fall application rates of potassium and phosphate returned to more normal levels and to the re-stocking which occurred in the third quarter.

The Rail Group had an operating income of $0.1 million in the third quarter of 2010 on revenues of $22 million.  The group lost $1.1 million and had revenues of $21 million during the same three month period a year ago.  Gross profit from the leasing business was down for the quarter due primarily to lower utilization rates and the corresponding storage expense from idle assets.  The average utilization rate for the quarter was 72.9 percent in comparison to 74.4 percent for the same period last year.  Increased leasing activity late in the quarter caused the utilization as of September 30 to increase to 75.6 percent.  The group has approximately 22,600 cars and locomotives, which is down from the prior year total of 24,000 units due to the selective scrapping of over 1,500 railcars this year.  All other operations showed nice improvement this quarter.  The short-line railroad in which the group invested last quarter showed solid performance.  The group's first nine months operating income this year was $1.2 million on $73 million of revenues.  In 2009, operating income through September was $0.4 million and revenues were $72 million.    

The Turf & Specialty Group reported an operating loss of $0.3 million in the third quarter for both this year and the prior year.  A $1.3 million non-recurring gain was recognized in the prior year.  Third quarter revenues for the group were $23 million, which is up $2 million from the prior year.  Both turf products tonnage and gross profit per ton increased during the third quarter, in comparison to the prior year.  Through the first nine months of 2010, the group's operating income was $4.9 million on $106 million of revenues.  Last year, its operating income was a record $5.8 million for the same period on similar revenues.  

The Retail Group had an operating loss of $1.7 million in the third quarter of 2010 on revenues of $34 million.  In the comparable period last year, the group's operating loss was $2.3 million and total revenues were $37 million.  Through nine months, the group recorded a loss of $2.4 million and total revenues of $108 million.  Last year through September the group lost $2.1 million on total revenues of $120 million.  

"We had mixed results this quarter," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Mike Anderson. "We were pleased with the performance of the Plant Nutrient Group, which typically has little to no income during the third quarter.  The increase in railcar lease renewals at the end of the quarter and the resulting increase in the utilization rate were encouraging to see.  Conversely, our Grain & Ethanol Group's results for the quarter were lower due primarily to the decreased performance of our ethanol business.  Our grain business was impacted by a decline in wheat basis, which we expect to be regained through the balance of the wheat crop year.  As it relates to our results through September, the Grain & Ethanol Group had record results of $42.8 million, and our Plant Nutrient Group is having their second best year, surpassed only by the unprecedented earnings seen in 2008," added Mr. Anderson.  

The company will host a webcast on Thursday, November 4, 2010 at 11:00 A.M. ET, to discuss its performance.  This can be accessed under the heading "Investor" on its website at www.andersonsinc.com.
