ALLIANCE RESOURCE PARTNERS, L.P.

 

Reports Quarterly and Annual Financial and Operating Results; Increases Quarterly Cash Distribution 1.0% to $0.51 Per Unit; and Provides Initial 2018 Guidance

 

TULSA, OKLAHOMA, January 29, 2018 — Alliance Resource Partners, L.P. (NASDAQ: ARLP) today reported financial and operating results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2017 (the "2017 Quarter" and the "2017 Year", respectively).  Total revenues were $483.2 million in the 2017 Quarter compared to $527.4 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 (the "2016 Quarter"), as coal sales revenues declined due to reduced coal sales volumes and prices.  Lower revenues contributed to reduced net income attributable to ARLP for the 2017 Quarter, which declined to $74.2 million, or $0.55 per basic and diluted limited partner unit, compared to $119.6 million, or $1.30 per basic and diluted limited partner unit, for the 2016 Quarter.  EBITDA in the 2017 Quarter of $159.9 million was also lower compared to $217.8 million in the 2016 Quarter.  (For a definition of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and related reconciliations to comparable GAAP financial measures and actual and pro forma earnings per basic and diluted limited partner unit reflecting the exchange transaction announced in our July 28, 2017 press release as if it had occurred on January 1, 2016, please see the end of this release.)

 

ARLP’s financial performance for the 2017 Quarter improved compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2017 (the "Sequential Quarter").  Led by higher production and sales volumes from our Hamilton longwall operation, net income attributable to ARLP and EBITDA increased by 21.2% and 12.5%, respectively, compared to the Sequential Quarter.  Increased volumes also helped drive Segment Adjusted EBITDA Expense per ton down by 3.5% compared to the Sequential Quarter. (For a definition of Segment Adjusted EBITDA Expense per ton and related reconciliation to comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the end of this release.)

 

Total revenues were $1.80 billion in the 2017 Year compared to $1.93 billion for the year ended December 31, 2016 (the "2016 Year"), as the anticipated reduction in coal sales prices more than offset increased sales volumes.  Although lower revenues were partially offset by decreased operating expenses, reduced depreciation, depletion and amortization and increased income from our oil and gas investments, net income attributable to ARLP for the 2017 Year declined to $303.6 million, or $2.80 per basic and diluted limited partner unit, compared to $339.4 million, or $3.39 per basic and diluted limited partner unit, for the 2016 Year.  Adjusted EBITDA for the 2017 Year also decreased to $620.8 million compared to $706.7 million in the 2016 Year.
