Ceres Announces Fiscal Third Quarter 2014 Financial Results
Date:7/10/2014

n government to receive a combination of low-interest loans and a non-repayable grant over the next four years to fund product development in sorghum and sugarcane. The funding is offered under the Brazilian government's PAISS Agricola program. Under the program, Ceres is eligible for a multi-year, multi-million dollar credit facility at a government-subsidized interest rate as well as a multi-million dollar non-repayable grant. Receipt of the loan will be subject to guarantees to be provided by or obtained by Ceres as well as customary diligence, documentation and closing conditions. The company expects to receive full program terms in mid-July.

Ceres Chief Financial Officer Paul Kuc reported that expenses for the quarter continued to benefit from cost-saving measures initiated in the first fiscal quarter. "We expect these cost savings measures to reach up to approximately $8 million for the next fiscal year, not including the potential impact of the PAISS grant and loan on our outlays for Brazil," said Kuc.
