COMPANY TO ANNOUNCE FULL RESULTS FOR THE QUARTER ON JULY 28, 2022

ST. LOUIS, July 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Peabody (NYSE: BTU) today announced preliminary unaudited financial results for the second quarter 2022 in connection with the previously announced Wilpinjong Senior Notes repurchase offer, which is scheduled to expire on July 21, 2022.

The Company expects to report second quarter revenue of $1,310 to $1,340 million, net of approximately $25 million of unrealized mark-to-market losses related to coal hedges; net income attributable to common stockholders of $400 to $420 million; and Adjusted EBITDA1 of $570 to $590 million.  Peabody posted $63 million of additional cash margin during the quarter in support of its existing coal hedge contracts and ended the quarter with $544 million of cash margin posted and $1,121 million of cash and cash equivalents.  The Company continued to reduce its outstanding debt during the quarter and has retired senior secured debt of nearly $90 million year-to-date through June 30, 2022, with additional retirements of over $110 million pending settlement.

"The preliminary financial results reported today demonstrate the strength of our diversified platform, generating over $570 million of Adjusted EBITDA.  With substantial cash generation this quarter despite continued operational challenges including rail performance in the PRB and weather in Australia, we believe we are positioned for a stronger second half as we continue to pay down debt and further collateralize our reclamation obligations," said Peabody President and Chief Executive Officer Jim Grech.

The nearly four-fold increase in Adjusted EBITDA compared to the prior year quarter is attributable to record high realized prices from our seaborne coal segments and higher margins and volumes from our Other U.S. Thermal segment.  Second quarter costs were impacted by sales sensitive costs such as royalties and production taxes, higher diesel prices and advanced overburden removal in the PRB.  Production volumes for the quarter were impacted by further degradation of PRB rail performance and the unexpected continuation of heavy rain and COVID absenteeism in Australia.

PIC AU Holdings LLC, "PIC AU", a wholly-owned subsidiary of Peabody that owns and operates the Wilpinjong mine, expects to report second quarter net income, net of income taxes of $80 to $95 million; Adjusted EBITDA of $160 to $175 million; and cash and cash equivalents of $202 million.  PIC AU retired approximately $67 million of senior secured debt year-to-date as of June 30, 2022, with additional retirements of $90 million pending settlement.

______________

1  Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure.  Please refer to the tables and related notes in this press release for a reconciliation and definition of non-GAAP financial measures.

On Thursday, July 28, 2022, Peabody will announce full results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022.  A conference call with management is scheduled for 9 a.m. CT on Thursday, July 28, 2022.
