Notes to Condensed Financial Statements

Note 1 -         Principal Activity and Significant Accounting Policies
The unaudited condensed financial statements contained herein have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities Exchange Commission. Certain information and note disclosures normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted pursuant to those rules and regulations, although South Dakota Soybean Processors, LLC (the “Company”, “LLC”, “we”, “our”, or “us”) believes that the disclosures made are adequate to make the information not misleading.
In the opinion of management, all normal recurring adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included in the accompanying condensed financial statements. The results of operations and cash flows for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results for a full year due in part to the seasonal nature of some of the Company’s businesses. The balance sheet data as of December 31, 2021 has been derived from audited financial statements but does not include all disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
These statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2021, included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on March 18, 2022 and amended on Form 10-K/A filed with the SEC on April 27, 2022.
Use of estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Revenue
The Company accounts for all of its revenues from contracts with customers under ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers.
The Company principally generates revenue from merchandising and transporting manufactured agricultural products used as ingredients in food, feed, energy and industrial products. Revenue is measured based on the consideration specified in the contract with a customer, and excludes any amounts collected on behalf of third parties (e.g. - taxes). The Company follows a policy of recognizing revenue at a single point in time when it satisfies its performance obligation by transferring control over a product to a customer. Control transfer typically occurs when goods are shipped from our facilities or at other predetermined control transfer points (for instance, destination terms). Shipping and handling costs related to contracts with customers for sale of goods are accounted for as a fulfillment activity and are included in cost of revenues. Accordingly, amounts billed to customers for such costs are included as a component of revenues.
Payments received in advance to the transfer of goods, or "contract liabilities", are included in "Deferred liabilities - current" on the Company's condensed balance sheets. These customer prepayments totaled $2,093,342 and $1,347,409 as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. Of the $1,347,409 balance as of December 31, 2021, the Company recognized $2,346 and $1,342,478 as revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, respectively. Of the $1,728,407 customer prepayments as of December 31, 2020, the Company recognized $501,827 and $894,811 of contract liabilities as revenues during the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively.

Note 2 -         Accounts Receivable
Accounts receivable are considered past due when payments are not received on a timely basis in accordance with the Company’s credit terms, which is generally 30 days from invoice date. Accounts considered uncollectible are written off. The Company’s estimate of the allowance for doubtful accounts is based on historical experience, its evaluation of the current status of receivables, and unusual circumstances, if any.

The Company also has a number of other operating leases for machinery and equipment. These leases have terms ranging from 3-7 years; however, most of these leases have automatic renewal terms. These leases require monthly payments of $3,779. Rental expense under these other operating leases was $14,659 and $9,577 for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively, and $61,075 and $19,318 for the six-month periods ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively.
On March 19, 2020, the Company entered into an agreement with an entity in the western United States to provide storage and handling services for the Company's soybean meal. The Company paid the entity $3,300,000 after the entity's construction of additional storage and handling facilities. The agreement began May 1, 2021 and will mature on April 30, 2027 but includes an additional seven-year renewal period at the sole discretion of the Company. Rental expense under this agreement was $58,938 and $39,286 for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively, and $117,867 and $39,286 for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively.
Operating leases are included in right-to-use lease assets, current operating lease liabilities, and long-term lease liabilities on the Company's condensed balance sheets. These assets and liabilities are recognized at the commencement date based on the present value of remaining lease payments over the lease term using the Company's secured incremental borrowing rates or implicit rates, when readily determinable. Short-term operating leases, which have an initial term of 12 months or less, are not recorded on the condensed balance sheet.
Lease expense for these operating leases is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease terms. The components of lease costs recognized within our condensed statements of operations for the three and six-month periods ended June 30, 2022 and 2021 were as follows:

Note 10 -       Fair Value
ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, defines fair value, establishes a comprehensive framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosures which are required about fair value measurements. Specifically, this guidance establishes a hierarchy prioritizing the inputs to valuation techniques, giving the highest priority to quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities and the lowest priority to unobservable value inputs. The three levels of hierarchy and examples are as follows:
Level 1 – Quoted prices are available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as of the reported date. The types of assets and liabilities included in Level 1 are highly liquid and actively traded instruments with quoted prices, such as equities listed on the New York Stock Exchange and commodity derivative contracts listed on the Chicago Board of Trade (“CBOT”).
Level 2 – Pricing inputs are other than quoted prices in active markets, but are either directly or indirectly observable as of the reported date. The types of assets and liabilities in Level 2 are typically either comparable to actively traded securities or contracts, or priced with models using highly observable inputs, such as commodity prices using forward future prices.
Level 3 – Significant inputs to pricing that are unobservable as of the reporting date. The types of assets and liabilities included in Level 3 are those with inputs requiring significant management judgment or estimation, such as complex and subjective models and forecasts used to determine the fair value of financial transmission rights.
The following tables set forth financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value in the condensed balance sheets and the respective levels to which fair value measurements are classified within the fair value hierarchy as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021:

The Company enters into various commodity derivative instruments, including futures, options, swaps and other agreements. The fair value of the Company’s commodity derivatives is determined using unadjusted quoted prices for identical instruments on the CBOT. The Company estimates the fair market value of their finished goods and raw materials inventories using the market price quotations of similar forward future contracts listed on the CBOT and adjusts for the local market adjustments derived from other grain terminals in our area.
The Company considers the carrying amount of significant classes of financial instruments on the balance sheets, including cash, accounts receivable, and accounts payable, to be reasonable estimates of fair value due to their length or maturity. The fair value of the Company’s long-term debt approximates the carrying value. The interest rates on the long-term debt are similar to rates the Company would be able to obtain currently in the market.
The Company has patronage investments in other cooperatives and common and preferred stock holdings in privately held entities. There is no market for their patronage credits or the entity’s common and preferred holdings,

As of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, Prairie AquaTech, LLC and Prairie AquaTech Manufacturing, LLC owed the Company $1,315,925 and $776,767, respectively.
Note 12 -       Commitments and Contingencies
As of June 30, 2022, the Company had unpaid commitments of approximately $3,384,000 for construction and acquisition of property and equipment, all of which is expected to be incurred by December 31, 2023.
From time to time in the ordinary course of our business, the Company may be named as a defendant in legal proceedings related to various issues, including without limitation, workers’ compensation claims, tort claims, or contractual dispute. The Company carries insurance that provides protection against general commercial liability claims, claims against our directors, officer and employees, business interruption, automobile liability, and workers' compensation. The Company is not currently involved in any material legal proceedings and are not aware of any potential claims.
Note 13 -       Subsequent Event
The Company evaluated all of its activities and concluded that no subsequent events have occurred that would require recognition in its financial statements or disclosed in the notes to its financial statements.

Item 2.    Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.
Forward-Looking Statements
The information in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the six-month period ended June 30, 2022, (including reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC” or “Commission”), contains “forward-looking statements” that deal with future results, expectations, plans and performance, and should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021. Forward-looking statements may include statements which use words such as “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “estimate,” “predict,” “hope,” “will,” “should,” “could,” “may,” “future,” “potential,” or the negatives of these words, and all similar expressions. Forward-looking statements involve numerous assumptions, risks and uncertainties. Actual results or actual business or other conditions may differ materially from those contemplated by any forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements are identified in our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021.
We are not under any duty to update the forward-looking statements contained in this report, nor do we guarantee future results or performance or what future business conditions will be like. We caution you not to put undue reliance on any forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this report.
Executive Overview and Summary
Strong crush margins from the first quarter of 2022 continued into the second quarter of 2022, helping us achieve record net incomes of $22.8 million in the second quarter and $41.1 million for the first six months of the year. Soybean oil continues to drive profitability, as strong demand for oil from the food, fuel and export sectors increased margins to record levels. Strong demand for oil is likely to continue in the near future as additional renewable diesel plants in Western U.S. are scheduled to begin production in 2022. Soybean meal demand, though not as strong as soybean oil, remained solid during the first six months, being supported by a strong domestic demand and an active export program. Steady soybean supply and delivery to both our plants further contributed to a strong six months.
While our financial results were favorable, the second quarter was not without challenges. Transportation-related issues were common. Rail carriers struggled delivering our railcars to our customers and returning those cars in a timely manner, resulting in railcar shortages that led to reduced production at our Volga facility. A shortage of drivers in the trucking industry also caused delays and increased costs. Supply chain disruption issues provided additional challenges to our team. Spare parts and production chemicals were difficult to source and required much greater lead times when ordering. In the end, however, we responded well by navigating the obstacles through a great team of employees.
Looking ahead, we anticipate above-average processing margins for the remainder of 2022 and into 2023. Although crush margins have recently decreased slightly, the market continues to provide opportunities to secure above average returns.
Long term, we continue to study the feasibility, engineering and planning of a new crushing plant near Mitchell, South Dakota. In July, we crossed a significant hurdle by securing a conditional use permit for the site from Davison County, South Dakota.

Revenue – Revenue increased $15.0 million, or 9.3%, for the three-month period ended June 30, 2022, compared to the same period in 2021. The increase in revenue was primarily due to an increase in the average sales price of refined soybean oil. The average sales price of soybean oil increased approximately 45% in the three months ended June 30, 2022 from the same period in 2021, resulting from surging demand from the renewable diesel and food sectors.
Gross Profit/Loss – Gross profit increased $21.4 million, or 680.9%, for the three months ended June 30, 2022, compared to the same period in 2021. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to increased demand for oil from the renewable diesel sector as more diesel plants were opened throughout the U.S.
Operating Expenses – Administrative expenses, including all selling, general and administrative expenses, increased approximately $520,000, or 54.3%, during the three-month period ended June 30, 2022, compared to the same period in 2021. The increase was primarily due to increases in personnel costs.
Interest Expense – Interest expense increased $55,000, or 11.1%, during the three months ended June 30, 2022, compared to the same period in 2021. The increase in interest expense was due to an increase in interest rates on our senior debt with CoBank and borrowings from our lines of credit. As of June 30, 2022, the interest rate on our revolving long-term loan was 3.99%, compared to 2.56% as of June 30, 2021.
Other Non-Operating Income – Other non-operating income (expense), including patronage dividend income, improved $350,000 during the three months ended June 30, 2022, compared to the same period in 2021. The increase in other non-operating income was due to a $350,000 improvement in gains (losses) on our interest rate hedge instruments. During the three-month period ended June 30, 2022, gains on interest rate hedges totaled $215,000, compared to a $135,000 loss during the same period in 2021.
Net Income/Loss – During the three-month period ended June 30, 2022, we generated a net income of $22.8 million, compared to $1.6 million for the same period in 2021. The $21.2 million increase was primarily attributable to an increase in gross profit.

Revenue – Revenue increased $63.1 million, or 22.2%, for the six-month period ended June 30, 2022, compared to the same period in 2021. The increase in revenues was primarily due to an increase in the average sales price of refined soybean oil. The average sales price of soybean oil increased approximately 54% in the six months ended June 30, 2022 from the same period in 2021, resulting from surging demand from the renewable diesel and food sectors.
Gross Profit/Loss – Gross profit increased $33.6 million, or 343.8%, for the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared to the same period in 2021. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to increased demand for oil from the renewable diesel sector as more diesel plants were opened in the U.S.
Operating Expenses – Administrative expenses, including all selling, general and administrative expenses, increased approximately $800,000, or 38.6%, during the six-month period ended June 30, 2022, compared to the same period in 2021. The increase was primarily due to increases in personnel costs.
Interest Expense – Interest expense increased $125,000, or 15.4%, during the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared to the same period in 2021. The increase in interest expense was due to an increase in interest rates on our senior debt with CoBank. As of June 30, 2022, the interest rate on our revolving long-term loan was 3.99%, compared to 2.56% as of June 30, 2021.
Other Non-Operating Income – Other non-operating income (expense), including patronage dividend income, increased $1,034,000 during the six-month period ended June 30, 2022, compared to the same period in 2021. The increase in other non-operating income was due to a $714,000 increase in gains on our interest rate hedge instruments and a $335,000 increase in patronage dividend income. During the six-month period ended June 30, 2022, gains on interest rate hedges totaled $786,000, compared to $72,000 during the same period in 2021. We also received $700,000 in patronage distributions from CoBank, a cooperative lender of which we are a member, during the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared to $365,000 during the same period in 2021.
Net Income/Loss – During the six-month period ended June 30, 2022, we generated a net income of $41.1 million, compared to $7.4 million for the same period in 2021. The $33.7 million increase was primarily attributable to an increase in gross profit and other non-operating income.
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
Our primary sources of liquidity are cash provided by operations and borrowings under our two revolving lines of credit which are discussed below under “Indebtedness.” On June 30, 2022, we had working capital, defined as current assets less current liabilities, of approximately $58.3 million, compared to $26.8 million on June 30, 2021. Working capital increased $31.5 million between periods primarily due to increases in net income during that period. Based on current plans, we will continue funding our capital and operating needs from cash from operations and revolving lines of credit.

Net cash provided by (used for) financing activities26,409,905 50,242,742 
Cash Flows Used For Operations
The $26.9 million decrease in cash flows used for operating activities was largely due to a $33.7 million increase in net income and a $9.3 million decrease in inventory. During the six-month period ended June 30, 2022, our inventories increased by $28.1 million, compared to a $37.4 million increase during the same period in 2021. Partially offsetting the changes in net income and inventory was a $20.0 million change in net gains or losses on derivative activities. During the six months ended June 30, 2022, we recognized $7.4 million in gains on derivative activities, compared to $12.7 million in losses during the same period in 2021.
Cash Flows Used For Investing Activities
The $0.3 million decrease in cash flows used for investing activities during the six-month period ended June 30, 2022, compared to the same period in 2021, was due to a $0.5 million decrease in capital improvements. During the six months ended June 30, 2022, we spent $3.3 million on capital improvements, compared to $3.8 million during the same period in 2021.
Cash Flows Provided By (Used For) Financing Activities
The $23.8 million decrease in cash flows provided by financing activities was principally due to a $13.3 million decrease in net proceeds on borrowings and a $7.9 million increase in cash distributions to our members during the six-month period ended June 30, 2022, compared to the same period in 2021. During the six months ended June 30, 2022, net proceeds on borrowings increased $47.8 million, compared to $61.1 million during the same period in 2021.
Indebtedness
We have two lines of credit with CoBank, our primary lender, to meet the short and long-term needs of our operations. The first credit line is a revolving long-term loan. Under this loan, we may borrow funds as needed up to the credit line maximum, or $16.0 million, and then pay down the principal whenever excess cash is available. Repaid amounts may be borrowed up to the available credit line. The available credit line decreases by $2.0 million every six months until the credit line’s maturity on March 20, 2026. We pay a 0.40% annual commitment fee on any funds not borrowed. The principal balance outstanding on the revolving term loan was $16.0 million and $16.9 million as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. Under this loan, there were no additional funds available to borrow as of June 30, 2022.
The second credit line is a revolving working capital (seasonal) loan. The primary purpose of this loan is to finance our operating needs. The maximum we may borrow under this line is $85.0 million until the loan's maturity on December 1, 2022. We pay a 0.20% annual commitment fee on any funds not borrowed; however, we have the option to reduce the credit line during any given commitment period listed in the credit agreement to avoid the commitment fee. As of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the principal balance outstanding on this credit line was $48.7 million and $0, respectively, allowing us to borrow an additional $36.3 million as of June 30, 2022.
Both the revolving and seasonal loans with CoBank are set up with a variable rate option. The variable rate is set daily by CoBank. We also have a fixed rate option on both loans, allowing us to fix rates for any period between one day and the entire commitment period. The annual interest rate on the revolving term loan was 3.99% and 2.56% as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. As of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the interest rate on the seasonal loan was 3.69% and 2.31%, respectively. We were in compliance with all covenants and conditions under the loans as of June 30, 2022.

RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
See Note 1 of our Financial Statements under Part I, Item 1, for a discussion on the impact, if any, of the recently pronounced accounting standards.
CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES
There have been no material changes to our critical accounting policies and estimates from those set forth in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021.
Item 3.    Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.
Commodities Risk & Risk Management. To reduce the price change risks associated with holding fixed price commodity positions, we generally take opposite and offsetting positions by entering into commodity futures contracts (either a straight or options futures contract) on a regulated commodity futures exchange, the Chicago Board of Trade. While hedging activities reduce the risk of loss from changing market prices, such activities also limit the gain potential which otherwise could result from these significant fluctuations in market prices. Our policy is generally to maintain a hedged position within limits, but we can be long or short at any time. Our profitability is primarily derived from margins on soybeans processed, not from hedging transactions. Our management does not anticipate that hedging activities will have a significant impact on future operating results or liquidity. Hedging arrangements do not protect against nonperformance of a cash contract.
At any one time, our inventory and purchase contracts for delivery to our facility may be substantial. We have risk management policies and procedures that include net position limits. They are defined by commodity, and include both trader and management limits. This policy and procedure triggers a review by management when any trader is outside of position limits. The position limits are reviewed at least annually with the board of managers. We monitor current market conditions and may expand or reduce the limits in response to changes in those conditions.
An adverse change in market prices would not materially affect our profitability since we generally take opposite and offsetting positions by entering into commodity futures and forward contracts as economic hedges of price risk.
Foreign Currency Risk. We conduct essentially all of our business in U.S. dollars and have minimal direct risk regarding foreign currency fluctuations. Foreign currency fluctuations do, however, impact the ability of foreign buyers to purchase U.S. agricultural products and the competitiveness of and demand for U.S. agricultural products compared to the same products offered by foreign suppliers.
22


An adverse change in market prices would not materially affect our profitability since we generally take opposite and offsetting positions by entering into commodity futures and forward contracts as economic hedges of price risk.
Interest Rate Risk. We manage exposure to interest rate changes by using variable rate loan agreements with fixed rate options. Long-term loan agreements can utilize the fixed option through maturity; however, the revolving ability to pay down and borrow back would be eliminated once the funds were fixed.
As of June 30, 2022, we had $0 in fixed rate debt outstanding and $101.0 million of variable rate lines of credit. Interest rate changes impact the amount of our interest payments and, therefore, our future earnings and cash flows. Assuming other variables remain constant, a 1.0% increase in interest rates on our variable rate debt could have an estimated impact on profitability of approximately $1.01 million per year.
Item 4.    Controls and Procedures.
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures. Based on their evaluation as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report on Form 10-Q, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) are effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file or submit under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms.
Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting. There were no changes to our internal controls over financial reporting that materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting during the quarter ended June 30, 2022.
PART II – OTHER INFORMATION
Item 1.    Legal Proceedings.
From time to time in the ordinary course of our business, we may be named as a defendant in legal proceedings related to various issues, including without limitation, workers’ compensation claims, tort claims, or contractual dispute. We carry insurance that provides protection against general commercial liability claims, claims against our directors, officer and employees, business interruption, automobile liability, and workers' compensation. We are not currently involved in any material legal proceedings and are not aware of any potential claims.
