ALLIANCE RESOURCE PARTNERS, L.P.

 

Reports Year-Over-Year Increases to Quarterly Coal Volumes, Revenues, Net Income and EBITDA; Maintains Quarterly Cash Distribution of $0.4375 Per Unit; and Raises Guidance

 

TULSA, OKLAHOMA, May 1, 2017 — Alliance Resource Partners, L.P. (NASDAQ: ARLP) today reported increased financial and operating results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 (the "2017 Quarter") compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2016 (the "2016 Quarter").  On the strength of increased coal sales volumes and higher other sales and operating revenues, total revenues for the 2017 Quarter rose 11.7% to $461.1 million.  Increased total revenues, lower total operating expenses and higher equity in earnings of affiliates combined to drive net income attributable to ARLP for the 2017 quarter up by 121.7% to $104.9 million, or $1.10 per basic and diluted limited partner unit, while EBITDA climbed 41.5% to $177.7 million, both as compared to the 2016 Quarter.  (For a definition of EBITDA and related reconciliations to comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the end of this release.)

 

As previously announced, the Board of Directors of ARLP’s managing general partner approved a cash distribution to unitholders for the 2017 Quarter of $0.4375 per unit (an annualized rate of $1.75 per unit), payable on May 15, 2017 to all unitholders of record as of the close of trading on May 8, 2017.  The announced distribution is equal to the distributions declared for the 2016 Quarter and the quarter ended December 31, 2016 (the "Sequential Quarter").    

 

"ARLP started the year strong, posting increases to all of our major financial and operating metrics for the 2017 Quarter," said Joseph W. Craft III, President and Chief Executive Officer.  "Operationally, we continued to benefit from recent efforts to reduce costs and minimize capital by shifting production to our lowest-cost mines.  On the marketing front, we further strengthened ARLP’s sales contract portfolio by securing commitments for an additional 740,000 tons for deliveries through 2019 – including another 342,000 tons of 2017 shipments into the thermal and metallurgical export markets.  We also recently completed our initial high-yield bond offering, successfully placing $400 million of senior unsecured notes due 2025 and garnering an industry-best corporate credit rating of Ba3/BB+.  This financing provides ARLP with a stable, long-term capital structure with ample liquidity and flexibility to execute our strategy.  With expectations for generating strong cash flows while maintaining a conservative balance sheet and robust distribution coverage, we believe ARLP is well positioned to once again consider gradually increasing distributions to our unitholders."
