ST. LOUIS, April 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Peabody (NYSE: BTU) today reported a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $119.5 million, or $0.88 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2022, compared to a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $80.1 million, or $0.81 per diluted share in the prior year quarter. Peabody's first quarter 2022 results included a $301.0 million charge for unrealized mark-to-market losses related to its coal hedging activities and a $23.5 million net loss on early debt extinguishment. Peabody had Adjusted EBITDA1 of $327.5 million in the first quarter of 2022 compared to $61.1 million in the first quarter of 2021. Revenue from coal sales increased 58 percent to $1,039 million compared to the prior year quarter, as higher realized prices were partially offset by lower volumes.

"In the first quarter, we set the stage for the remainder of the year, addressing challenges to delivering projected volumes and costs across the platform and continued to strengthen our balance sheet while expanding the value offering we provide our customers and increasing our sold coal position," said Peabody President and Chief Executive Officer Jim Grech. "Strong global market dynamics persist for our products, driving prices to unprecedented levels globally. With projected increased sales, we remain poised to deliver a strong 2022."

First Quarter Highlights

  • Overcame production and logistic challenges in Australia related to record rain fall and COVID induced labor shortages and instituted recovery plans to recapture volumes over the remainder of the year

  • Invested over $40 million in the PRB and Midwest mining operations to enable higher production levels over the remainder of 2022

  • Strengthened the balance sheet with $42 million of additional debt repayment and a $320 million convertible notes offering to retire higher cost debt and extend maturities to 2028

  • Launched R3 Renewables, a renewable energy development company, in a joint venture with Riverstone Credit Partners and Summit Partners Credit Advisors to pursue the development of over 3.3 GW of solar PV and 1.6 GW of battery storage capacity over the next five years

  • Advanced project activity to potentially re-enter the south workings of North Goonyella and develop 70 million tons of reserves

  • Started development at Wambo Underground for three additional longwall panels that will extend the mine life to 2026

  • Increased 2023 PRB committed sales to 59 million tons

1 Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA margin is equal to segment Adjusted EBITDA divided by segment revenue. Revenues per Ton and Adjusted EBITDA Margin per Ton are equal to revenues by segment and Adjusted EBITDA by segment, respectively, divided by segment tons sold. Costs per Ton is equal to Revenues per Ton less Adjusted EBITDA Margin per Ton. Management believes Costs per Ton and Adjusted EBITDA Margin per Ton best reflect controllable costs and operating results at the mining segment level. We consider all measures reported on a per ton basis, as well as Adjusted EBITDA margin, to be operating/statistical measures. Please refer to the tables and related notes in this press release for a reconciliation and definition of non-GAAP financial measures.

During the first quarter, the seaborne thermal segment shipped 3.8 million tons including 1.8 million export tons at an average realized price of $118.85 per ton, a 24% increase in average realized price compared to the prior quarter. The average realized price included 264 thousand metric tons from Wambo sold at $84.00 per metric ton under the hedge program implemented in the first half of 2021 to support the profitability and extend the life of the mine. Tons sold were reduced by unexpected mine production impacts from continued severe rains and COVID related staffing shortages as well as the commencement of a scheduled longwall move at Wambo Underground. First quarter seaborne thermal segment costs of $42.77 per ton were higher compared to the prior quarter, primarily due to lower production volumes. The segment reported Adjusted EBITDA margins of 36 percent and Adjusted EBITDA of $90.5 million, in the first quarter.

Wilpinjong shipped 3.0 million tons at an average realized price of $50 per ton, which included 1.0 million tons of export sales at an average realized price of $109 per ton and 2.0 million domestic tons at an average price of $20. Export tons sold in the quarter were reduced by approximately 0.5 million tons due to the weather and COVID related staffing impacts noted above. Average Wilpinjong costs of $28.16 per ton were 19 percent higher than the prior quarter due to lower volumes and higher overburden removal costs. In the first quarter, Wilpinjong contributed approximately $63.6 million to Adjusted EBITDA and had $213 million of cash at March 31, 2022.

Total segment costs of $112.87 per ton increased 7 percent primarily due to additional royalties from higher realized prices, higher fuel prices, mine sequencing at the CMJV and the commencement of a longwall move at Metropolitan. Shoal Creek continued to ramp-up to full production and produced over 270 thousand tons in the first quarter, while sales were only 71 thousand tons due to timing of shipments. The segment reported 56% Adjusted EBITDA margins and Adjusted EBITDA of $181.0 million, in the first quarter.

The PRB segment shipped 20.6 million tons at an average realized price of $12.18 per ton in the first quarter. Tons sold were impacted by rail challenges and our investments to ramp-up production for following quarters. PRB costs per ton increased by 18 percent over the prior quarter to $11.81 per ton primarily due to lower production volumes and higher fuel costs and one-time costs of approximately $1.08 per ton for additional overburden removal, major equipment overhauls, recruitment and training to position the segment for higher production rates for the remainder of 2022. For the first quarter, the segment reported 3 percent Adjusted EBITDA margins and Adjusted EBITDA of $7.6 million.

During the first quarter, the other U.S. thermal segment shipped 4.2 million tons at an average realized price of $48.46 per ton, a 15 percent increase in average realized prices compared to the prior quarter. Cost per ton increased 8 percent from the prior quarter due to higher fuel prices and one-time costs due to inclusion of approximately $2.38 per ton associated with enabling higher production in 2022 and certain Twentymile rehabilitation costs. The segment reported 25 percent Adjusted EBITDA margins and Adjusted EBITDA of $50.0 million, in the first quarter.

Corporate and Other

First quarter Other Operating Costs, Net of $27.1 million includes trading and brokerage losses of $36 million, primarily due to timing differences between the delivery of physical coal and underlying financial derivatives. This loss is projected to be offset when the physical coal, including 140,000 metric tons from Wambo, is delivered at index pricing in the second half of 2022.

The company recognized income from equity affiliates of $44.7 million, compared to $70.7 million in the prior quarter, primarily related to its fifty percent interest in Middlemount and related 0.5 million attributable tons of semi-hard / PCI met coal shipped in the first quarter of 2022.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

Peabody ended the quarter with $848 million of cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash. The company continued to strengthen the balance sheet, retiring approximately $42 million of senior secured debt during the quarter and utilized proceeds from the $320 million convertible senior unsecured notes offering to retire higher cost senior secured debt and extend maturities to 2028. As a result of these activities, the company recorded a net loss on early debt extinguishment of $23.5 million.

As a result of unprecedented upward volatility in Newcastle coal pricing, the company posted $351.6 million of additional cash margin associated with the company's coal hedging activities in the first quarter and had $481.7 million posted in support of its coal hedges at March 31,2022. During the first quarter, the company completed a financing arrangement to support near-term liquidity in light of the cash margin requirements. The company received gross proceeds of $225 million under the facility which were repaid in full with proceeds from the sale of 10.1 million shares under the related ATM program.

To further reduce exposure to additional coal hedge margin requirements, the company converted 0.75 million metric tons of financial hedges into fixed price physical sales over the next 12 months eliminating further margin requirements on these tons. With these transactions, 1.4 million metric tons remain outstanding with 0.9 million metric tons projected to settle over the remainder of 2022.

2022 Outlook

U.S. Thermal Operations

  • U.S. thermal volumes are expected to be higher than prior year as we anticipate that both the PRB and Other U.S. Thermal segments will ramp up production through the third quarter to meet customer demand.

  • Second quarter sales volumes are expected to be higher than the first quarter for the PRB segment and increase to 5 million tons for the Other U.S. Thermal segment. Essentially all 2022 volumes are priced and committed, incremental volumes anticipated in the PRB will be dependent on rail availability.

  • Price per ton for the second quarter is expected to be consistent with the first quarter; higher PRB pricing is expected in the second half of the year.

  • Second quarter costs are anticipated to decrease compared to the first quarter as a result of higher volumes and lower one-time expenses. Cost per ton for the full year are anticipated to be at the high end of guidance due to inflationary pressures.

Seaborne Thermal Operations

  • Second quarter export volumes are expected to be 2.2 million tons. Seaborne thermal volumes are expected to be higher in the second half of the year as a result of re-establishing mine sequencing from the severe rains and the completion of the planned longwall move at Wambo Underground.

  • For the second quarter, approximately 1.2 million tons of export sales are priced at $95 per ton.

  • Second quarter costs per ton are expected to remain consistent with first quarter results. Cost per ton for the full year are anticipated to be at the high end of the guidance range due to the significant weather events, continued staffing challenges, inflationary pressures and increased royalties due to higher realized prices; robust margins from anticipated strong prices are expected to result in higher margins.

Seaborne Met Operations

  • Second quarter sales volumes are expected to be 1.6 million tons. Seaborne met volumes are expected to be higher in the second half of the year as a result of higher production at Shoal Creek, completion of a longwall move at Metropolitan and mine sequencing at the CMJV.

  • For the second quarter, approximately 0.2 million tons of export sales are priced at $418 per ton.

  • Second quarter costs per ton are expected to be higher than the first quarter due to a higher mix of Shoal Creek production, longwall restart costs at Metropolitan and higher overburden removal and repair costs at Coppabella. For the full year, robust margins from anticipated strong prices are expected to more than offset higher royalties and inflationary pressures.
