BROOKWOOD, AL  — May 18, 2017 —
Warrior Met Coal, Inc. (NYSE:HCC) (“Warrior” or the “Company”) today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017. Warrior is the leading dedicated U.S. based producer and exporter of high quality metallurgical (“met”) coal for the global steel industry.

“We are pleased with our strong performance in this first quarter reporting as a newly listed company,” commented Walt Scheller, CEO of Warrior Met Coal. “Over the past year, we have established Warrior as the premier and only ‘pure-play’ met coal producer in the U.S. Warrior’s unique value proposition is based on two principal factors: the strength of our met coal assets, and our competitive positioning as a formidable operator in the era of ‘new coal.’” Warrior began trading on the NYSE on April 13, 2017.

Operating Results
Mine No. 4 and Mine No. 7 were both operational during the first quarter of 2017, with one longwall at Mine No. 4 and two longwalls at Mine No. 7. Both mines continued to ramp up production toward the Company’s historical annual production level of approximately 8 million short tons. Warrior produced 1.6 million short tons of met coal in the first quarter 2017 which was 33% better than expected, and included the move of one longwall operation. “There is significant growth potential embedded in Warrior’s existing operations,” added Mr. Scheller. “We have improved our productivity and advance rates as our workforce continued to skill up, and we will commit our catch-up capital spending to realize nameplate production capacity in our two mines of about 8 million short tons per year.”

Financial Results
Total revenues were $254.0 million for the first quarter of 2017, including $241.1 million in mining revenues, which consisted of met coal sales of 1.1 million short tons at an average selling price of $213.89 per short ton. During this period, the Company reported net income of $108.3 million, or $2.06 per share. Adjusted Net Income for the first quarter 2017 was $117.2 million, or $2.22 per share and Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $135.5 million.

Cost of sales for the first quarter of 2017 were $106.1 million, or 41.8% of total revenues and includes mining costs, transportation and royalty costs. Cash cost of sales (free-on-board port) per short ton was $93.75 in the first quarter that reflects higher volumes and realized pricing, which increases wage, transportation and royalty costs. Selling, general and administrative expenses for the first quarter 2017 were $5.2 million, or 2.0% of total revenues. Depreciation and depletion costs for the first quarter 2017 were $14.6 million, or 5.7% of total revenues and primarily consists of depreciation of machinery and equipment and depletion of mineral interests.

Warrior incurred interest expense of $0.6 million, and recognized income tax expense of $1.9 million for the first quarter of 2017.

Cash Flow and Liquidity
The Company generated strong cash flow from operating activities in the first quarter of 2017 of $65.6 million, net of a $58.1 million build in working capital.
