For the fourth quarter of 2019, U.S. wood pellet producer Enviva reported net income of $0.9 million, adjusted net income of $17.2 million, and adjusted EBITDA of $53.3 million.

“As expected, we closed 2019 strong, achieving our highest-ever quarterly adjusted EBITDA on more than one million metric tons of wood pellets sold, and delivered full-year distributable cash flow at the high end of our guidance range,” said John Keppler, chairman and chief executive officer of Enviva. “With the robust pipeline of production plants and terminals and related off-take contracts held by our sponsor and its joint venture, which we expect to be made available to the Partnership for acquisition, we are well-positioned to double our 2019 adjusted EBITDA in the next few years.”

“The ramp-up of the Hamlet plant and the completion of the Mid-Atlantic Expansions, along with organic growth that includes headline price increases in our long-term off-take contracts and productivity and cost improvements, are expected to significantly increase the cash flow profile of the Partnership for 2020,” said Shai Even, chief financial officer of Enviva.
