Exhibit 99.1

Adams Resources & Energy, Inc. Announces First Quarter
2024 Results and Declares Quarterly Dividend

Houston, Texas (Wednesday, May 8, 2024) -- Adams Resources & Energy, Inc. (NYSE AMERICAN: AE) (“Adams” or the “Company”), a company engaged in marketing, transportation, logistics and repurposing of crude oil, refined products and dry bulk materials, today announced operational and financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2024. The Company also declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.24 per common share.

First Quarter 2024 Financial Summary

Total revenue of $661.1 million, versus $650.2 million for the first quarter of 2023.

Net loss for the quarter improved $1.5 million year over year to ($0.5) million, or ($0.19) per common share.

EBITDA for the quarter improved $1.6 million year over year to $6.0 million, versus $4.4 million for the first quarter of 2023. Both net loss and EBITDA include $1.8 million of inventory liquidation gains for the first quarter of 2024 versus $1.0 million of inventory valuation losses for the first quarter of 2023.

Cash and cash equivalents were $36.6 million as of March 31, 2024, versus $33.3 million at December 31, 2023.

Liquidity of $83.6 million at March 31, 2024, versus $80.3 million at December 31, 2023.

Paid dividends of $0.24 per share.

EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization) is a non-generally accepted accounting principle (“non-GAAP”) financial measure that is defined and reconciled to net (losses) earnings in the financial tables later in this release.

“We are encouraged by the multiple signs of progress experienced across our business this quarter, especially on the margin side, as we continue to respond to the ongoing macroeconomic headwinds,” said Kevin Roycraft, President & CEO of Adams. “We increased volumes and strengthened our margins within our oil segments and are optimistic these trends can continue throughout the year. We are also beginning to see signs of recovery in the chemical transport markets which could lead to a reversal of rate decreases from last year. We

believe we are well-positioned to benefit when the economy improves, and confident in our ability to deliver long-term value to our shareholders.”

Additional Operational Highlights

In the first quarter, Adams’ crude oil marketing subsidiary, GulfMark Energy, Inc. (“GulfMark”), marketed 64,634 barrels per day (“bpd”) of crude oil during the first quarter of 2024, compared to 94,030 bpd during the first quarter of 2023 and 73,381 bpd during the fourth quarter of 2023. The decrease in volumes was largely driven by GulfMark’s exit from the Red River trucking operations in the fourth quarter of 2023.

The collective fleet of Service Transport Company (“Service Transport”), Adams’ liquid chemicals, pressurized gases, asphalt and dry bulk transportation subsidiary, traveled 6.29 million miles during the first quarter of 2024, versus 6.55 million miles during the first quarter of 2023 and 6.13 million miles during the fourth quarter of 2023.

Adams’ crude oil pipeline and storage segment, which includes the Victoria Express Pipeline System, throughput was 11,256 bpd for the first quarter of 2024, compared to 10,088 bpd for the first quarter of 2023 and 9,377 bpd for the fourth quarter of 2023, and terminalling volumes were 11,544 bpd for the first quarter of 2024, compared to 10,395 bpd in the first quarter of 2023, and 9,589 bpd for the fourth quarter of 2023.

Adams’ remained solidly positioned with 329,287 barrels of crude oil inventory at March 31, 2024, compared to 267,731 barrels at December 31, 2023.

Capital Investments and Dividends

During the first quarter of 2024, the Company had capital expenditures of $6.2 million primarily for the purchase of seventeen tractors, thirteen trailers and other various equipment. In addition, Adams paid dividends of $0.7 million, or $0.24 per common share.

As part of Adams’ on-going capital allocation strategy, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend for the first quarter of 2024 of $0.24 per common share, payable on June 28, 2024, to shareholders of record as of June 14, 2024.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company’s financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), this press release and accompanying schedules include the non-GAAP financial measure of earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA). The accompanying schedules provide a reconciliation of EBITDA to net earnings (losses), its most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company defines EBITDA as net earnings (or losses) before interest income or expense, income tax and depreciation and amortization expense. Company management believes this measure is a useful indicator of the financial performance of our business and uses this measurement as an aid in monitoring the Company’s ongoing financial performance from quarter to quarter and year to year on a regular basis and for benchmarking against peer companies. Management also believes that EBITDA is useful to investors as it is a measure commonly used by other companies in our industry and

provides a comparison for investors for the Company’s performance relative to its competitors. Our non-GAAP financial measure should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any other measure of financial performance calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Adams’ non-GAAP financial measure may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because they may not calculate such measures in the same manner as Adams does.

Conference Call

The Company will host a conference call to discuss its first quarter results on Thursday, May 9, 2024 at 9:00 a.m. ET (8:00 a.m. CT).
