AOK Tire Thanks Apopka Police Department – Pays $1,000 Reward

first_img Please enter your comment! By now we all know the  story:  After multiple burglaries the owner of the AOK Tire Mart posted a message on a sign in front of the store offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.  Photos of the sign were tweeted and posted on Facebook and went viral (the story published by The Apopka Voice reached nearly 22,000 people on Facebook).Last week the sign changed.  The owner is now thanking the Apopka Police Department.  As The Apopka Voice reported on April 7th; an arrest had been made.But what about the $1,000 Reward?The store manager, Tyler Hall, confirmed that the $1,000 reward had been paid to someone who came forward, but wishes to stay anonymous.“The tip was important, but the real credit for solving the crimes goes to Apopka Police Detective Graber,” said Hall.  “He went above and beyond on this one.”Hall estimated that the store had suffered about $20,000 in damage due to multiple burglaries over the past few months.

Protesters to Dylan’s Candy Bar: ‘We’re not suckers!’

first_imgProtesting for living wage, Oct. 30.New York, Oct. 30 — With the Rude Mechanical Orchestra providing noisy and spirited support, dozens of activists picketed Dylan’s Candy Bar store on Manhattan’s East Side tonight. Many wore Halloween costumes and carried signs that said, “I’m not a sucker,” as this candy store boss, Dylan Lauren — Ralph Lauren’s daughter — was exposed for being worth more than $4 billion. Meanwhile, Dylan’s workers are demanding fairness, dignity and a living wage.Hundreds of colorful fliers were distributed by activists all around the two-story store. They answered questions from passersby who wanted to know what was behind the protest.These Dylan’s workers are organizing with the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union to win living wages. They are demanding increased pay to $13.99 per hour — the price of 1 pound of bulk candy; just hours with more stable scheduling and guaranteed hours for all workers; and an end to favoritism.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Heat Unit Concepts Related To Corn Development

first_img SHARE SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – May 1, 2020 Home News Feed Heat Unit Concepts Related To Corn Development Facebook Twitter Heat Unit Concepts Related To Corn Development Facebook Twitter Previous articleLogansport Tyson Plant to Reopen Next WeekNext articleFarm Resilience Starts With a Solid Financial Foundation Hoosier Ag Today By Bob NielsenPurdue UniversityGrowth and development of corn are strongly dependent on temperature. Corn develops faster when temperatures are warmer and more slowly when temperatures are cooler. For example, a string of warmer than normal days in late spring will encourage faster leaf development than normal. Another example is that a cooler than normal grain filling period will delay the calendar date of grain maturity. The phrases “string of warmer than normal days” and “cooler than normal grain filling period” can be converted mathematically into measures of thermal time by calculating the daily accumulations of heat using temperature data. Commonly used terms for thermal time are Growing Degree Days (GDDs), Growing Degree Units (GDUs), or heat units (HUs).Different methods exist for calculating heat units depending on a) the crop or biological organism of interest and b) the whim or personal preference of the researcher. The GDD estimation method most commonly used throughout the U.S. for determining heat unit accumulation relative to corn phenology was first evaluated by Gilmore & Rogers (1958) and termed “Effective Degrees”. Barger (1969) later proposed that the same method, which he termed “Modified Growing Degree Days”, be adopted as the standard heat unit formula by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.This Modified GDD method calculates daily accumulation of GDD as the average daily temperature (oF) minus 50. The “modification” refers to the limits imposed on the daily maximum and minimum temperatures allowed in the calculation. Daily maximums greater than 86oF are set equal to 86 in the calculation of the daily average temperature. Similarly, daily minimums less than 50oF are set equal to 50 in the calculation.Example 1:If the daily maximum temperature was 80oF and the minimum was 55oF, the GDD accumulation for the day would be ((80 + 55) / 2) – 50 or 17.5 GDDs.Example 2 (Illustrating the limit on daily maximums):If the daily maximum temperature was 90oF and the minimum was 72oF, the GDD accumulation for the day would be ((86 + 72) / 2) – 50 or 29 GDDs.Example 3 (Illustrating the limit on daily minimums):If the daily maximum temperature was 68oF and the minimum was 41oF, the GDD accumulation for the day would be ((68 + 50) / 2) – 50 or 9 GDDs.In late April to early May, normal daily GDD accumulations for central Indiana are about 10 GDDs. By late July, the normal daily accumulation rises to about 23 GDDs. For a typical corn growing season in central Indiana, say from late April to late September, the total seasonal accumulation of GDDs is about 2800 GDDs.NOTE: Calculation of GDD for corn is not limited to the use of air temperatures. From planting until roughly V6, germination and development of young seedlings respond more directly to soil temperature than air temperature. Soil temperature does not precisely mirror air temperature. Consequently, it is appropriate during that time frame to calculate GDD using soil temperatures. Ideally, one would use soil temperature recorded in the upper two inches of soil because that depth corresponds best to seed placement and initial growing point position. Realistically, however, most available online sources of soil temperature data are based on standard NWS-NOAA 4-inch soil depth measurements. That’s okay, though, because corn development still correlates well with soil GDD based on 4-inch temperatures.There are a number of sources of daily temperature data, both air and soil. There are increasingly more commercial sources of weather and climate data available to everyday consumers. One source of weather and climate data for those with Indiana interests is the Indiana State Climate Office, located on the campus of Purdue University. A range of types of data are available for a number of locations around the state (https://ag.purdue.edu/indiana-state-climate/data).Specifically for corn, the Useful to Usable (U2U) multi-state research and Extension project, originally funded by USDA, developed a useful GDD decision support tool (HPRCC, 2020) that estimates county-level GDD accumulations (based only on air temperatures) and corn development dates for the states of North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee. The GDD Tool uses current and historical GDD data plus user selected start dates, relative hybrid maturity ratings, and freeze temperature threshold values. The GDD and corn development predictions are displayed graphically and in tabular form, plus the GDD accumulation estimates can be downloaded in a Comma Separated Value (.csv) format for you to work with in your own spreadsheet program.Figure 1 shows a screen capture from the GDD Tool in which I selected “Tippecanoe Co., IN”, a start date (aka planting date) of Apr 20, a relative hybrid maturity rating of 111 “days”, and a freeze temperature threshold of 28oF. The tool automatically adds estimated GDD values from planting to silking and black layer based on the “corn maturity days” you enter, but each is customizable if you know the GDD values specific to your hybrid. The tool displays estimates of actual cumulative GDD from planting to today’s date, then estimates of cumulative GDD for the remainder of the season. Estimates of silking and black layer dates are displayed, as well as the early and late ranges of those estimates. When you are viewing the actual graph on the Web site, estimates of GDD accumulations at specific dates “pop up” when you hover your computer mouse over parts of the line graph.For more information on how to use GDD to make hybrid maturity decisions, see my accompanying article (Nielsen, 2019b)For information on how to predict corn leaf stage development using GDD, see my accompanying article (Nielsen, 2019c).last_img read more

Press attacked for criticising government’s pull-out from peace talks

He was released on 5 September. He had criticised the government’s withdrawal from the peace talks in a broadcast on the Arab TV station Al-Jazeera on 1 September. The paper published an article criticising Vice-President Ali Osman Mohamed Taha on 3 September.The 4 September issues of two privately-owned newspapers, the Khartoum Monitor and Al-Horriya were seized the evening before by security officials who went to the printing works.Alfred Taban, managing editor of the Khartoum Monitor, and Albino Okeny, his editor-in-chief, were summoned on 4 September before security officials, who reproached them for criticising the government. That day’s issue of the paper carried the text of a speech by opposition leader Sadek El-Mahdi criticising the pull-out from the talks. Another article reported the demands of Abyei, a town on the border with southern Sudan, whose inhabitants wanted to be part of the south, not the north.Al-Horriya’s 4 September edition contained an editorial saying the decision to suspend the talks was wrong. The paper’s managing editor, Haj Warrag, and journalist Lubna Ahmed Husein were summoned the next day before security officials, who interrogated them about it.The 5 September issue of the daily As Sahafa was also seized at the printing works at dawn the same day.

This marks the 13th investment from Ethika’s Diversified Opportunity Real Estate Fund and the second investment for the fund in the Los Angeles metro area.With nearly seven million square feet of office space, Pasadena is one of the largest submarkets in the Los Angeles area and has consistently maintained one of the market’s lowest vacancy and highest rental rates. This is due in large part to its diversified tenant base, strong labor pool and excellent retail and entertainment amenities.“Pasadena’s fundamentals are rapidly improving toward their pre-recession peak, when vacancy rates were below 3 percent. 199 South Los Robles represents a rare opportunity to acquire an institutional-quality, Class A office asset in Los Angeles with significant repositioning potential. The location of the building, adjacent to Paseo Colorado and near the Metro Gold Line, is irreplaceable. This is yet another example of Ethika’s ability to identify underperforming real estate in Top 30 markets and create value through acquiring at attractive bases and taking an active management approach. This is the third office investment for the fund,” said Austin Khan, Chief Investment Officer of Ethika Investments. “And as with our other office assets, we will implement a comprehensive renovation strategy to meet the needs of today’s office tenant.”“The all-encompassing renovation program will drive rental rates, occupancy and tenant satisfaction,” said Talal Elass, Vice President of Fund Management for Ethika Investments. “Considerable improvements will be noticed in the lobby, corridors, bathrooms, elevator lobby, overall common areas and building systems.”Pasadena is home to several of the region’s largest office employers and office tenants, including the California Institute of Technology, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Parsons Corporation. Populated by a highly educated workforce, its well-known research facilities have made Pasadena appealing to a wide range of industries including technology, healthcare, media, engineering and financial services.The building is located at 199 South Los Robles in Pasadena, California.Ethika Investments is a real estate private equity firm formed to provide investors access to a unique platform by tactically investing in opportunistic real estate assets primarily in the United States. It is affiliated with Laurus Corporation, a real estate investment and development company that specializes in hotel & resorts, office buildings, multifamily and mixed-use properties.

Adjusted Net Income We define adjusted net income as net income excluding interest expense associated with incremental borrowings related to a fire that occurred in February 2018 at the Chesapeake terminal (the “Chesapeake Incident”) and Hurricanes Florence and Michael (the “Hurricane Events”), early retirement of debt obligation, and acquisition and integration costs, adjusting for the effect of certain sales and marketing, scheduling, sustainability, consultation, shipping, and risk management services (collectively, “Commercial Services”), and including certain non-cash waivers of fees for management services provided to us by our sponsor (collectively, “MSA Fee Waivers”). We believe that adjusted net income enhances investors’ ability to compare the past financial performance of our underlying operations with our current performance separate from certain items of gain or loss that we characterize as unrepresentative of our ongoing operations. Adjusted Gross Margin and Adjusted Gross Margin per Metric Ton We define adjusted gross margin as gross margin excluding asset impairments and disposals, depreciation and amortization, changes in unrealized derivative instruments related to hedged items included in gross margin, non-cash unit compensation expenses, and acquisition and integration costs, adjusting for the effect of Commercial Services, and including MSA Fee Waivers. We define adjusted gross margin per metric ton as adjusted gross margin per metric ton of wood pellets sold. We believe adjusted gross margin and adjusted gross margin per metric ton are meaningful measures because they compare our revenue-generating activities to our operating costs for a view of profitability and performance on a total-dollar and a per-metric ton basis. Adjusted gross margin and adjusted gross margin per metric ton will primarily be affected by our ability to meet targeted production volumes and to control direct and indirect costs associated with procurement and delivery of wood fiber to our wood pellet production plants and our production and distribution of wood pellets. Adjusted EBITDA We define adjusted EBITDA as net income excluding depreciation and amortization, interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), early retirement of debt obligations, non-cash unit compensation expense, asset impairments and disposals, changes in unrealized derivative instruments related to hedged items included in gross margin and other income and expense, and acquisition and integration costs, adjusting for the effect of Commercial Services, and including MSA Fee Waivers. Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental measure used by our management and other users of our financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks and research analysts, to assess the financial performance of our assets without regard to financing methods or capital structure. Distributable Cash Flow We define distributable cash flow as adjusted EBITDA less maintenance capital expenditures, cash income tax expenses, and interest expense net of amortization of debt issuance costs, debt premium, original issue discounts, interest expense associated with the redemption of the $355.0 million of aggregate principal amount of 6.5% senior unsecured notes due 2021 (the “2021 Notes”), and the impact from incremental borrowings related to the Chesapeake Incident and Hurricane Events. We use distributable cash flow as a performance metric to compare our cash-generating performance from period to period and to compare the cash-generating performance for specific periods to the cash distributions (if any) that are expected to be paid to our unitholders. We do not rely on distributable cash flow as a liquidity measure. Limitations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures Adjusted net income, adjusted gross margin, adjusted gross margin per metric ton, adjusted EBITDA, and distributable cash flow are not financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP. We believe that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to investors in assessing our financial condition and results of operations. Our non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as alternatives to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. Each of these non-GAAP financial measures has important limitations as an analytical tool because they exclude some, but not all, items that affect the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. You should not consider adjusted net income, adjusted gross margin, adjusted gross margin per metric ton, adjusted EBITDA, or distributable cash flow in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Our definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing their utility. The estimated incremental adjusted EBITDA that can be expected from the Multi-Plant Expansions is based on an internal financial analysis of the anticipated benefit from the incremental production capacity and cost savings at the Sampson, Hamlet, and Cottondale plants and is based on numerous assumptions that are subject to significant risks and uncertainties. Those assumptions are inherently uncertain and subject to significant business, economic, financial, regulatory, and competitive risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results and amounts to differ materially from such estimate. A reconciliation of the estimated incremental adjusted EBITDA expected to be generated by the Multi-Plant Expansions to the closest GAAP financial measure, net income, is not provided because net income expected to be generated by the expansions is not available without unreasonable effort, in part because the amount of estimated incremental interest expense related to the financing of the expansions and depreciation is not available at this time. The following tables present a reconciliation of adjusted net income, adjusted gross margin, adjusted gross margin per metric ton, adjusted EBITDA, and distributable cash flow to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, as applicable, for each of the periods indicated. 22,600 Property, plant and equipment acquired under finance leases — Previous articleAxway Software – 2020 Full-Year Results: Success of the Transformation Plan, Resilience of the New Business ModelNext articleAT&T to Host Analyst Day on Friday, March 12 Digital AIM Web Support 3,742 (177,483 $160.0 – 180.0 Total current liabilities 2020 Deferred tax liabilities, net Other revenue Other long-term assets 11,248 35,189 $ $ 1,429,612 $ Interest expense $ 4,579 Accounts payable Other long-term liabilities 780 $ Asset impairments and disposals Related-party payables, net (1,216 $ $ ) Net revenue ) 94 (526,000 $ $ 1,705 Current portion of long-term debt and finance lease obligations Early retirement of debt obligation 10,142 41,190 (358 128,372 Long-term debt and finance lease obligations 4,139 Facebook $ Other 276,027 2,460 54 85,615 $ Net (loss) income Twitter 9,042 $ 762,242 5,410 (9,042 17,080 5,448 2,516 929 3,103 ) 6,978 99,660 44,551 4,139 Loss on disposal of assets 107,123 (1,889 (18 4,588 (4,996 2019 (24,300 280,768 Noncontrolling interest $42.3 – 62.3 929 $ Amortization of debt issuance costs, debt premium and original issue discounts 17,080 33,469 9,042 1,347 11,713 89.6 ) Accrued interest 5,410 $ (10,643 (in thousands) ) 2020 Other non-cash expenses 4,411 2019 10,004 2,414 (12,428 Distributable cash flow attributable to Enviva Partners, LP Property, plant and equipment acquired included in accounts payable and accrued liabilities 49,700 13.0 Distributable cash flow attributable to Enviva Partners, LP limited partners $ Prepaid expenses and other current assets ) We will seek to drive innovative improvements in our supply chain.

These facilities are most often co-located with major manufacturing complexes in Japan. The decarbonization of the industrial sector is increasingly important for countries to meet net-zero targets. As of February 1, 2021, the Partnership’s current production capacity is matched with a portfolio of firm, take-or-pay off-take contracts that has a total weighted-average remaining term of 12.8 years and a total product sales backlog of $14.6 billion. Assuming all volumes under the firm and contingent off-take contracts held by our sponsor were included, our total weighted-average remaining term and product sales backlog would increase to 14.0 years and $19.9 billion, respectively. The Partnership expects to have the opportunity to acquire off-take contracts from our sponsor. Sustainability Consistent with our mission to displace coal, grow more trees, and fight climate change, we and our sponsor recently announced our commitment to become “net-zero” in GHG emissions from our operations by 2030. Although the product we manufacture helps reduce the lifecycle GHG emissions of our customers, we believe we must also do our part within our operations to mitigate the impacts of climate change. In order to deliver “net-zero” emissions by 2030, we have committed to the following:We will reduce, eliminate, or offset all of our direct emissions. We will immediately begin to minimize the emissions from fossil fuels used directly in our operations—our Scope 1 emissions. As our efforts to minimize the use of fossil fuels, adopt lower-carbon processes, and improve the efficiency of our operations will take time and continue to mature, in the interim we will offset 100 percent of our residual emissions through investments in projects that result in real, additional, and third-party-verified net-carbon reductions. We will focus on forest offsets created in the U.S. Southeast as part of our relationships with Finite Carbon and others, building on our experience working directly with private landowners. We plan to work with key stakeholders and others who are investing in such high-quality offsets, prioritizing those created from forest management, afforestation, and reforestation projects.

We will annually report on all emissions: Scope 1 (direct emissions from our manufacturing), Scope 2 (indirect emissions from energy we purchase), and Scope 3 (indirect emissions in our value chain). We also commit to disclosing climate-relevant data and risks through CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) by the end of 2022. We plan to accomplish these goals in partnership with our key stakeholders, including through direct engagement with our customers, who share our commitment to achieving immediate and measurable atmospheric GHG emissions reductions and in many cases are pursuing not only net-zero carbon emissions strategies, but also projects including innovations like BECCS, where we believe Enviva can help pioneer a carbon-negative solution. “Enviva and the sustainable and renewable fuel we supply to our customers are part of an all-in solution to climate change,” said Keppler. “It’s essential that we act right now to do our part to mitigate rising temperatures. Our plan to achieve net-zero in our operations by 2030, with critical near-term milestones, is just the latest expression of our commitment to be a leader in the fight against climate change.” Partnership Development Activities The Partnership continues to commission certain assets and ramp production from the existing expansion projects (the “Mid-Atlantic Expansions”) at its wood pellet production plants in Northampton, North Carolina and Southampton, Virginia. The Partnership expects both plants to reach a nameplate production capacity of approximately 750,000 MTPY at each plant by the end of 2021. Following the successful completion of construction at the Mid-Atlantic Expansions, the Partnership has commenced a series of projects (the “Multi-Plant Expansions”) at our wood pellet production plants in Sampson, North Carolina (the “Sampson plant”), Hamlet, North Carolina (the “Hamlet plant”), and Cottondale, Florida (the “Cottondale plant”), subject to receiving the necessary permits. The Partnership expects to invest approximately $50.0 million in connection with the Multi-Plant Expansions to de-bottleneck manufacturing processes, eliminate certain costs, and increase production capacity, while reducing GHG emissions at the same time. Upon completion and ramp-up, the Partnership expects the Multi-Plant Expansions to generate approximately $20.0 million in total incremental annual adjusted EBITDA. The Partnership expects to fund the Multi-Plant Expansions using our 50/50 equity/debt capital structure and to complete the Multi-Plant Expansions by the end of 2022. Sponsor Development Activities Our sponsor recently closed a $325.0 million senior secured green term loan facility (the “Holdings Green Term Loan”), using a portion of the proceeds to purchase its joint venture partner’s interest (the “JV Buyout”) in the sponsor’s development joint venture. With the benefit of the Holdings Green Term Loan, which we do not expect to affect the Partnership’s credit ratings, the associated JV Buyout, and the $300.0 million in undrawn equity capital raised during our sponsor’s previously announced recapitalization transaction in July 2020, our sponsor has materially reduced its cost of capital associated with the development and construction of renewable energy infrastructure assets, including:The construction of the fully contracted wood pellet production plant in Lucedale, Mississippi (the “Lucedale plant”) and the deep-water marine terminal in Pascagoula, Mississippi (the “Pascagoula terminal”). 9,042 — (0.54 ) Income tax expenses 6 148 5,000 54.02 (16,330 $ ) (19,537 2020 — 219,750 Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash, end of period ) Net (loss) income before income tax expense (91 7,722 Deferred consideration to sponsor included in related-party payable 77,471 Reconciliation of net (loss) income to adjusted net income: 15,409 50,521 9,437 453,000 Prepaid expenses and other current and long-term assets — Net (loss) income 61,778 9,053 General and administrative expenses The evaluation of additional sites for wood pellet production plants across the Southeastern United States, which would be exported through the Partnership’s existing terminals and the Pascagoula terminal, to serve the balance of the $5.3 billion in current long-term contracted demand at the sponsor, which is complemented by material contract volumes under negotiation with utilities and power generators in current and evolving markets around the globe.

Highlights:The Partnership reported a net loss of $0.4 million, adjusted net income of $11.1 million, and adjusted EBITDA of $69.3 million for the fourth quarter, and net income of $17.1 million, adjusted net income of $46.0 million, and adjusted EBITDA of $190.3 million for the full year, of 2020For the fourth quarter of 2020, the Partnership declared a distribution of $0.78 per common unit, a 15.6% increase over the same quarter of 2019, bringing distributions for full-year 2020 to $3.00 per common unit, a 13.2% increase over 2019The Partnership provided full-year 2021 guidance for net income in the range of $42.3 million to $62.3 million and adjusted EBITDA in the range of $230.0 million to $250.0 million, and expects to distribute at least $3.17 per common unit for full-year 2021, before considering the benefit of any acquisitions or drop-down transactionsFollowing successful completion of construction of the Mid-Atlantic Expansions, the Partnership announced $50.0 million in new expansion projects expected to generate $20.0 million of incremental run rate adjusted EBITDAIn addition to new take-or-pay off-take agreements, the Partnership’s sponsor executed an MOU with a major trading house for up to 1 million MTPY of deliveries to combined heat and power plants, an emerging segment of the Japanese biomass energy marketThe Partnership and our sponsor announced a commitment and plan to become “net-zero” in our operations by 2030 “We are very proud of our accomplishments in 2020. Despite the challenges presented by COVID-19, we operated our plant and terminal assets stably and reliably, we made uninterrupted deliveries to our customers, we completed two transformative acquisitions, we met our increased guidance expectations for adjusted EBITDA, distributable cash flow, and full-year distributions, and we delivered a 30% total return to our unitholders, all while keeping our people safe and healthy,” said John Keppler, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Enviva. “As we turn the page to 2021, our ability to generate stable cash flows that grow over time is poised to be more robust than ever, fueled both by organic growth as we look to replicate the highly accretive expansion projects in our existing portfolio and, against the backdrop of the forthcoming start-up of our sponsor’s fully-contracted Lucedale plant and Pascagoula terminal, coupled with existing and new long-term take-or-pay off-take energy supply contracts with large customers around the world, through additional drop-downs.” Fourth-Quarter and Annual Financial Results For the fourth quarter of 2020, we generated net revenue of $277.3 million, as compared to $200.5 million for the corresponding quarter of 2019. The $76.8 million increase in net revenue was primarily attributable to a $65.6 million increase in product sales on sale volumes that were 29.4 percent higher and an $11.2 million increase in other revenue. Included in other revenue for the fourth quarter of 2020 were $15.4 million in payments to the Partnership for adjusting deliveries under our take-or-pay off-take contracts, which otherwise would have been included in product sales. For the fourth quarter of 2020, we generated gross margin of $26.6 million, as compared to $28.2 million for the corresponding quarter of 2019. Adjusted gross margin was $72.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, as compared to $55.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, an increase of $17.8 million, or 32.3 percent. Adjusted gross margin per metric ton was $54.02 for the fourth quarter of 2020, as compared to adjusted gross margin per metric ton of $52.83 for the fourth quarter of 2019. The increase in adjusted gross margin is primarily attributable to higher sales volumes and higher pricing due to customer contract mix, partially offset by a corresponding increase in cost of goods sold. For the fourth quarter of 2020, net loss and adjusted net income were $0.4 million and $11.1 million, respectively. For the fourth quarter of 2019, net income and adjusted net income were $0.9 million and $17.2 million, respectively. Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $69.3 million, as compared to $53.3 million for the corresponding quarter of 2019. The increase of $16.0 million, or 30.1 percent, was primarily due to the same factors that increased adjusted gross margin. Distributable cash flow, prior to any distributions attributable to incentive distribution rights paid to our general partner, was $54.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, an increase of $15.5 million, or 39.4 percent, as compared to the corresponding quarter of 2019. For full-year 2020, we generated net revenue of $875.1 million, as compared to net revenue of $684.4 million for 2019. The $190.7 million increase in net revenue was primarily attributable to a $156.3 million increase in product sales revenue on sales volumes that were 21.5 percent higher and a $34.4 million increase in other revenue. Included in other revenue for full-year 2020 were $32.5 million in payments to the Partnership for adjusting deliveries under our take-or-pay off-take contracts, which otherwise would have been included in product sales. Gross margin was $107.1 million for full-year 2020, as compared to $81.1 million for 2019, an increase of $26.1 million. Adjusted gross margin was $204.9 million for full-year 2020, as compared to $151.6 million for 2019, an increase of $53.2 million, or 35.1 percent. Adjusted gross margin per metric ton was $47.29 for full-year 2020, as compared to $42.54 for full-year 2019. Gross margin and adjusted gross margin increased primarily due to higher sales volumes and higher pricing due to customer contract mix, partially offset by a corresponding increase in cost of goods sold. For full-year 2020, net income and adjusted net income were $17.1 million and $46.0 million, respectively. For full-year 2019, net loss and adjusted net income were $2.9 million and $39.0 million, respectively. Adjusted EBITDA for full-year 2020 was $190.3 million, as compared to $141.3 million for full-year 2019. The increase of $49.0 million, or 34.7 percent, was primarily due to the same factors that increased adjusted gross margin. Distributable cash flow, prior to any distributions attributable to incentive distribution rights paid to our general partner, was $141.6 million for full-year 2020, an increase of $43.1 million, or 43.8 percent, as compared to full-year 2019. As of December 31, 2020, the Partnership’s liquidity, which includes cash on hand and availability under our $350.0 million revolving credit facility, was $239.7 million. The integration of the wood pellet production plants in Greenwood, South Carolina (the “Greenwood plant”) and Waycross, Georgia (the “Waycross plant”) into the Partnership is progressing as expected. The Partnership has received the necessary permits to expand the Greenwood plant’s production capacity to 600,000 metric tons per year (“MTPY”). Construction is ongoing and the expansion is on track for completion by the end of 2021. Performance at the Waycross plant has consistently met or exceeded our expectations prior to the acquisition. The Partnership continues to report that, to date, our operating and financial results have not been materially impacted by the outbreak of a novel strain of coronavirus (“COVID-19”) and all of our customers have performed in accordance with their contracts with us. Although the full implications of COVID-19 are not yet known, we have contingency and business continuity plans in place that we believe would mitigate the impact of potential business disruptions if necessary. Distribution As announced on January 27, 2021, the board of directors of our general partner (the “Board”) declared a distribution of $0.78 per common unit for the fourth quarter of 2020, an increase of 15.6% over the same quarter of 2019. This distribution represents the twenty-second consecutive distribution increase since the Partnership’s initial public offering. The Partnership’s distributable cash flow, net of amounts attributable to incentive distribution rights paid to our general partner, of $46.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2020 covered the distribution for the quarter at 1.50 times. With its fourth-quarter distribution, the Partnership has declared aggregate distributions of $3.00 per common unit for full-year 2020, an increase of 13.2% over the aggregate distributions per common unit for 2019. The quarterly distribution will be paid on Friday, February 26, 2021, to unitholders of record as of the close of business on Monday, February 15, 2021. Outlook and Guidance The Partnership expects full-year 2021 net income to be in the range of $42.3 million to $62.3 million, adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $230.0 million to $250.0 million, and distributable cash flow to be in the range of $160.0 million to $180.0 million, prior to any distributions attributable to incentive distribution rights paid to our general partner. The Partnership expects to distribute at least $3.17 per common unit for full-year 2021, before considering the benefit of any acquisitions or drop-down transactions, and target a distribution coverage ratio of 1.20 times on a forward-looking annual basis. The guidance amounts provided above do not include the impact of any additional acquisitions by the Partnership from our sponsor or third parties. The Partnership’s quarterly income and cash flow are subject to seasonality and the mix of customer shipments made, which vary from period to period. Similar to previous years, the Partnership expects net income, adjusted EBITDA, and distributable cash flow for the second half of 2021 to be significantly higher than for the first half of the year. “The solid financial results we delivered for full-year 2020 set the stage for a strong 2021 during which we expect to continue our track record of organic growth and accretive drop-down transactions, which has enabled us to consistently and durably increase per-unit distributions since our initial public offering,” said Shai Even, Chief Financial Officer of Enviva. “We expect our fully contracted business model, combined with conservative financial policies, to put us in a position to stably and reliably grow the Partnership in size and scale.” Market and Contracting Update In one of the new administration’s first actions, President Joe Biden signed an executive order recommitting the United States to the Paris Agreement, the international accord designed to avert catastrophic global warming. This action caps a landmark twelve-month period during which the global community, including many of the regulators, policymakers, academics, and businesses in the jurisdictions where our existing and prospective customers are located, made unprecedented commitments and significant progress to phase out coal, cut greenhouse gas (“GHG”) emissions, and achieve “net-zero” by 2050 in order to limit the impact of climate change. In December 2020, the European Union (the “EU”) took another decisive step towards legislating the 2050 “net-zero” target into the European Climate Law, when EU leaders from all 27 member states, including heavily coal-dependent countries such as Poland and the Czech Republic, agreed to raise the EU’s 2030 GHG emissions reduction target from 40 percent to 55 percent, as compared to 1990 levels. EU leaders also reached agreement on an economic recovery package that included over 110 billion euros of grants dedicated to climate and environmental purposes. The European Council, Parliament, and Commission have now entered into the “trilogue” in order to formally adopt this law. The United Kingdom (the “UK”), which has been at the forefront of the renewable energy transition, recently raised its GHG emissions reduction commitment under the Paris Agreement to at least 68 percent by 2030, up from the previous target of 53 percent, as compared to 1990 levels. Furthermore, through a series of important energy policy publications, including the Prime Minister’s Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution, the Energy White Paper “Powering Our Net Zero Future,” and the Committee on Climate Change’s Sixth Carbon Budget, the UK government underlined its continued commitment to bioenergy as a source of heat and power and outlined its intention to support Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) as a key negative carbon emissions solution and explore bioenergy’s role in hydrogen production. In Japan, following Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga’s “net-zero” pledge in October 2020, the country’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry recently unveiled a “Green Growth Strategy Towards 2050 Carbon Neutrality.” The strategy sets the target for renewable energy sources to make up 50 percent to 60 percent of the nation’s power supply by 2050 and proposes tax incentives and other support to achieve this goal, including a 2 trillion yen ($19 billion) “Green Innovation Fund.” The continued favorable climate change policy declarations, complemented by the recent execution of several new agreements by our sponsor, reinforce our conviction in the long-term growth profile of the Partnership. In addition to the approximately 3.5 million MTPY of long-term off-take contracts with Japanese counterparties the Partnership and our sponsor previously announced, our sponsor recently executed several agreements with Japanese counterparties, including:A new contract with a major Japanese trading house regarding 20-year, take-or-pay off-take supply for a new biomass power plant. The contract is subject to certain conditions precedent, which our sponsor expects to be met during 2021. Sales related to this contract are expected to commence in 2024 with annual deliveries of 240,000 MTPY of wood pellets. 5,294 39,785 344 MSA Fee Waivers — 3,701 Net cash provided by operating

A webinar about The State of the U.S. Housing Market by Carrington Mortgage Holdings hosted by Rick Sharga, EVP, Carrington Mortgage Holdings looked at the various indicators that are affecting the housing market today and how they would impact it in the future.Starting off with an overview of the overall U.S. economy, Sharga said, “Inflation is something that people are watching more closely.” The solid numbers posted by the economy have meant that the Fed is now watching for inflation to get to a certain level and put brakes on the economic stimulus to keep it there. The strong job numbers have also helped boost the overall economic indicators as more workers are re-entering the workforce.The market might be finally putting the foreclosure crisis behind it according to the report. “We are seeing foreclosure activity falling rapidly with the activity concentrated only in a handful of states,” Sharga said. Citing data from Black Knight’s recent Mortgage Monitor Report the report said that delinquencies and foreclosures starts were declining with total U.S. delinquency rates at 4.3 percent and total U.S. foreclosure inventory rate falling to around 0.65 percent. The total delinquency rates were a little higher than expected due to the natural disasters of 2017 but they were showing a decline on a month-over-month basis. “There simply won’t be many distressed properties going around by this time next year,” Sharga said. “You won’t see many people in foreclosure until late 2019 or early 2020.”Moving on to the housing market, Sharga pointed out that existing home sales were off to a weak start in 2018. “Existing home sales are still well away from the record numbers we saw during the housing boom of 2006,” Sharga said. While existing home sales stagnated at 5.4 million by the end of 2017, we should be closer to 6 million existing home sales by the end of 2018.The culprit? Inventory shortage. According to Sharga, existing home sales inventory was a little under four months’ supply at present. “A significant percentage of existing home sales inventory is not for sale right now, which is driving inventory shortage,” Sharga said, citing various factors such as a psychological hangover where people were afraid to put their homes on the market because they wouldn’t be able to sell it for enough to buy a new home, and the fact that homeowners were staying in a home for a longer period of time, with the average being 10-11 years today, compared to 6-7 years in the previous years. This scarcity was also driving prices higher, with Black Knight’s HPI estimating a 6.6 percent home price appreciation in 2017 and a median home price of around $283,000. Despite these price increases, Sharga said that affordability was better than what people thought. “The prior peak was reached in 2006, and since then we’ve had 12 years of wage appreciation and even with the higher interest rates today, we still have lower mortgage rates than we had in 2006 which was in the 6-7 percent range,” Sharga said. While the inventory crisis is not as acute for new homes, sales for these were also lagging in the first quarter of 2018 according to the report, as labor, capital issues, and regulatory constraints continued to restrict builder activity leading to weak housing starts.
