ST. LOUIS, Feb. 6 - Peabody (NYSE: BTU) today announced its fourth quarter 2018 operating results, including revenues of $1.40 billion, income from continuing operations, net of income taxes of $233.5 million, net income attributable to common stockholders of $252.6 million, diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $1.97 and Adjusted EBITDA1 of $273.7 million.

“Peabody concluded 2018 with strong company-wide Adjusted EBITDA margins of approximately 25 percent for the full year, successful completion of what we believe to be a highly accretive acquisition, robust cash flows and share buybacks that have now surpassed $1 billion - more than 25 percent of our current market capitalization - in just 18 months,” said Peabody President and Chief Executive Officer Glenn Kellow. “Against the backdrop of favorable seaborne conditions, Peabody begins the year with a healthy balance sheet, expectations of continued strong operating cash flows and an ongoing commitment to returning cash to shareholders.”

These declines were partially offset by strong seaborne pricing and 6 percent higher seaborne export thermal volumes.

Fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA totaled $273.7 million, including $4.9 million in Shoal Creek acquisition costs. Compared to the prior year, Adjusted EBITDA declined $142.5 million, with the change primarily
