New Generation Biofuels Reports First Quarter 2010 Financial Results

COLUMBIA, Md., May 17– Renewable fuels provider New Generation Biofuels Holdings, Inc. NGBF (“NGBF” or the “Company”) today announced its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2010.

New Generation Biofuels reported a net loss of $2.9 million for the quarter ending March, 31, 2010 on revenues of $6,477 versus a net loss of $2.4 million with no revenues for the comparable quarter in 2009. The net loss for both periods reflect operating costs, as well as significant non-cash charges relating to stock based compensation, stock options and warrants issued for services and amortization charges relating to our technology license.

Net cash used in operating activities was $1.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2010, down $0.1 million from $1.4 million used in last year’s comparable period. As of March 31, 2010 the Company had cash on hand of approximately $0.24 million, and will need to complete another financing during the second quarter.

CEO Comments:
“To date, 2010 has been a period of transition for New Generation. With changes in the composition of our board and management team we are continuing our evolution as a technology based, commercially focused company. We are excited about the opportunities presented by the prospective strategic partner from China. Beyond the equity infusion, the collaborative aspects of the memorandum of understanding reached with Milestone Biofuels Limited, via the contemplated joint venture, would significantly increase our production capacity and market presence. While we remain in the diligence period, and thus far are pleased with how it is going, we are continuing our efforts in expanding our distribution base. We also are working to finalize several new sales contracts in the near future and to make additional progress within the utility industry,” said Cary J. Claiborne, President and Chief Executive Officer of New Generation Biofuels Holdings, Inc. “On the technical side we are also continuing to work on optimizing our production process and expand the number of feedstocks that can be used to produce our fuels. I am also pleased that we managed to lower our year over year cash burn in the first quarter despite carrying the full quarters cost of our plant and increases in legal expenses resulting from a number of business activities.”
