Foundation Coal Announces Fourth Quarter 2007 Results

LINTHICUM HEIGHTS, Md., February 14, 2008 – Foundation Coal Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:FCL) today reported fourth quarter 2007 net income of $9.9 million or $0.21 per diluted share, compared to a loss of $21.9 million or $0.48 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2006. Excluding special items, net income was $10.4 million or $0.22 per diluted share, compared to $2.2 million or $0.05 per diluted share in the fourth quarter last year. The strong quarterly results primarily reflect record fourth quarter shipments from the Powder River Basin and higher average per ton sales realizations in all regions, which more than offset slightly lower shipments from Central Appalachia and higher non-cash operating expenses.

Full year 2007 net income was $32.6 million or $0.70 per diluted share. Excluding special items, net income for 2007 was $41.0 million or $0.88 per diluted share, near the high end of the previous guidance range of $0.75 to $0.90.
