TERRE HAUTE, Ind., Aug. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hallador Energy Company (NASDAQ – HNRG) today reported net loss of $3.0 million, ($.10) per share, adjusted EBITDA of $11.3 million.

Brent Bilsland, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are experiencing one of the strongest and most dramatic market turn arounds we have seen in years. As a result, we have added an additional 500,000 tons of contracted sales during the quarter and expect to ship ~1 million more tons in the last half of 2021 versus the first half, representing a 40% increase in shipments."

Below are highlights for the quarter and first six months of 2021:

  • Additional contracted sales of 500,000 tons added during the quarter.

    • Q2 2021, shipments improved to a 5.6 million-ton annualized pace from a 4.7 million-ton annualized pace in Q1 2021. We expect shipments in the last half of 2021 to run at an ~7.0 million-ton annualized pace.

  • Hallador generated $6.4 million in Adjusted Free Cash Flow during the quarter.

    • As of June 30, 2021, our bank debt was $130.1 million, bringing our liquidity to $26.5 million resulting in a leverage ratio of 2.76X, well within our covenant of 3.25X.

  • Our entire $10 million PPP Loan was forgiven on July 23, 2021. The forgiveness of the PPP Loan will be recognized during Q3 2021.

  • Solid Sales Position Through 2022

    • We added ~500,000 contracted tons to our position during the quarter and expect to add tons later in the year for 2022 and beyond as markets recover and gas prices continue to increase.

* Defined as EBITDA plus stock-based compensation and ARO accretion, less the effects of our equity method investments and Hourglass Sands.
** Defined as net income plus deferred income taxes, DD&A, ARO accretion, and stock compensation, less maintenance capex and the effects of our equity method investments.

EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted free cash flow should not be considered alternatives to net income, income from operations, cash flows from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP. Our method of computing EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted free cash flow may not be the same method used to compute similar measures reported by other companies.

Management believes that the presentation of such additional financial measures provides useful information to investors regarding our performance and results of operations because these measures, when used in conjunction with related GAAP financial measures, (i) provide additional information about our core operating performance and ability to generate and distribute cash flow, (ii) provide investors with the financial and analytical framework upon which management bases financial, operation, compensation, and planning decisions, and (iii) present measurements that investors, rating agencies, and debt holders have indicated are useful in assessing our results.
