Peabody Reports Results For Quarter Ended March 31, 2021

ST. LOUIS, April 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Peabody (NYSE: BTU) today announced its first quarter 2021 operating results, including revenues of $651.3 million; loss from continuing operations, net of income taxes of $77.7 million; net loss attributable to common stockholders of $80.1 million; diluted loss per share from continuing operations of $0.79; and Adjusted EBITDA1 of $61.1 million

"While economies across the globe are in varying stages of recovery from the ongoing pandemic, I'm pleased to note that operational and productivity improvements continue to take hold across the company," said Peabody President and Chief Executive Officer Glenn Kellow.  "In addition, we successfully completed our refinancing activities and subsequently repaid a portion of our long-term debt.  Looking ahead, we remain focused on further improving our seaborne metallurgical cost structure and capturing continued cash improvements across the organization while positioning for ongoing seaborne market improvements."

First Quarter 2021 Financial Results

First quarter revenues totaled $651.3 million compared to $846.2 million in the prior year primarily due to the impact of lower volumes, pricing and sales mix. 

Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased 13 percent from the prior year to $21.7 million from the company's ongoing cost reduction program.

Depreciation, depletion, and amortization (DD&A) declined 36 percent from the prior year to $68.3 million, primarily due to the impairment at the North Antelope Rochelle Mine recorded in Q2 2020 as well as lower volumes.

Interest expense increased $19.3 million over the prior year due to $10.6 million of one-time fees expensed as part of the refinancing transactions, higher borrowing costs and amortization of the related debt issuance costs.

Loss from continuing operations, net of income taxes totaled $77.7 million compared to $129.3 million in the prior year.  Adjusted EBITDA totaled $61.1 million compared to $36.8 million in the prior year.

Segment Performance

During the first quarter, the seaborne thermal segment exported 2.3 million tons at an average realized price of $58 per ton with the remaining 1.8 million tons sold under a long-term domestic contract.  First quarter seaborne thermal segment costs of $36 per ton increased 14 percent compared to the prior year primarily due to expected lower volumes from the United Wambo JV transition as well as unfavorable exchange rates and the impacts on the logistics chain from both historic flooding in New South Wales and a ship loader outage at the Newcastle NCIG port.  These impacts were partially offset by cost improvements at Wilpinjong.  The segment reported 16 percent Adjusted EBITDA margins and Adjusted EBITDA of $28.5 million

In the first quarter, Wilpinjong sold 2.9 million tons at a cost of $23 per ton and contributed approximately $24.6 million to the seaborne thermal segment's Adjusted EBITDA.  Wilpinjong had $6.1 million of capital expenditures in the first quarter and $104 million of cash and cash equivalents as of March 31, 2021. 

The seaborne met segment shipped 1.0 million tons, including 0.1 million tons from idled operations, at an average realized price of $87 per short ton in the first quarter.  Seaborne met costs, excluding idled operations, were approximately $84 per ton.  Total segment costs of $110 per ton were in line with the prior year even as the segment shipped one million less tons in 2021 as productivity improvements at Moorvale offset the impacts of unfavorable exchange rates and idled mine costs at Metropolitan and Shoal Creek.  The segment reported Adjusted EBITDA loss of $22.4 million

The PRB segment shipped 20.7 million tons at an average realized price of $11.01 per ton. Weather conditions in February impacted shipments for the quarter by an estimated 1 million tons. PRB costs per ton decreased 7 percent to $9.56 due to ongoing cost management initiatives and pit sequencing despite a 12 percent reduction in volumes from the prior year.  The segment reported 13 percent Adjusted EBITDA margins and Adjusted EBITDA of $30.1 million.

The other U.S. thermal segment shipped 3.9 million tons at an average realized price of $39 per ton.  Cost per ton decreased 6 percent from the prior year to $29 due to productivity improvements and cost management efforts at each of the mines. The segment reported 24 percent Adjusted EBITDA margins and Adjusted EBITDA of $36.2 million.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

During the quarter, Peabody generated $71 million of cash from operating activities, repaid debt of approximately $54 million and ended the quarter with $623.7 million of cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash. 

The quarter included one-time items related to the refinancing transactions including $33 million of refinancing fees and approximately $40 million of debt repayment.

Peabody also posted $43.5 million of collateral under the accounts receivable securitization facility as outstanding letters of credit temporarily exceeded the balance of eligible receivables at quarter-end, primarily due to the timing of shipments. 

Investing cash flows included $50 million related to capital expenditures and $34 million of net contributions to joint ventures, primarily related to upcoming capital expenditures for the United Wambo JV transition.

Comprehensive Improvement Program Update

Peabody continues to take action, particularly to improve its met coal operating performance and capture cash improvements across the platform. 

The CMJV continues to recognize the ongoing cost improvements implemented, with productivity improvements overcoming an $0.11 unfavorable exchange rate impact.  Costs per ton at the complex declined $12.92 year over year.   

Shoal Creek remains idled as the company continues activities to achieve higher productivity, lower costs and improved yields from the operation in the future.  The restart of mine production and coal shipments is contingent upon successful completion of these initiatives and stable customer demand.  Initiatives include a prep plant upgrade project, which is anticipated to be commissioned in mid Q3.  Additionally, the Shoal Creek labor contract expired on April 1, 2021 and negotiations are ongoing.

While discussions are ongoing with customers and workforce, the Metropolitan full workforce will return to the mine in early May.  Development work at the mine has been ongoing through the idle period and longwall production is anticipated to restart in the second quarter, with ramp up to full production in the third quarter.

Outlook    

Based on current market conditions, Peabody anticipates the following results in 2021:

U.S. Thermal Operations:  PRB volumes remain largely in line with 2020 volumes, with more than 95 percent of 2021 tons currently priced at an average price of $10.98 per ton.  Other U.S. thermal shipments are expected to be approximately 16 million tons, priced at an estimated average price of $39 per ton.  U.S. thermal coal deliveries are largely dependent on general economic conditions, weather, natural gas prices and utility inventory levels. 

Based on expected production levels, Peabody anticipates PRB and other U.S. thermal costs per ton to be largely in line with 2020 levels.

Seaborne Thermal:  Peabody anticipates volumes and costs will progressively improve throughout the year as the company's mines continued to safely operate throughout the quarter.  For the full year, seaborne thermal volumes are expected to be approximately 17 million tons, including 7-8 million domestic tons.  Seaborne thermal costs per ton are expected to increase compared to 2020 levels given lower volumes, higher expected royalties and currently unfavorable exchange rates. Tight supplies and low inventory levels have resulted in improved pricing year-to-date for Newcastle thermal coal.

Seaborne Met:  Due to productivity improvements and increased customer demand, CMJV volumes are expected to be higher than 2020 volumes.  Volumes at idled mines will be contingent upon customer demand and ongoing improvement program activities at Shoal Creek and the production ramp up at Metropolitan.  Prices for Australian hard coking coal continues to be impacted by the China ban on Australian coal, in addition to increased COVID concerns in India. Prices for low-vol PCI are at parity with Australian hard coking coal as tight supply and China paying premiums for Russian coals have resulted in higher prices.   

Corporate and Other:  Previous SG&A expense guidance has been revised down $5 million to $85 million.  Capital expenditures are expected to be $225 million, including approximately $135 million on major project capital primarily for the seaborne thermal segment.  2021 interest expense is expected to be approximately $200 million, including $50 million of non-cash expense.  Peabody also anticipates the following cash impacts for the full year 2021:

  • $60 million related to final reclamation activities
  • $30 million related to postretirement benefits in excess of expense
  • $15 million related to final multi-employer pension plan (MEPP) payment

Second quarter 2021 results are expected to be largely in line with the first quarter based on current pricing levels. 

Today's earnings call is scheduled for 10 a.m. CT and can be accessed via the company's website at PeabodyEnergy.com.
