Press Release



HALLADOR ENERGY REPORTS 2018 ANNUAL EARNINGS

AND UPDATES SALES GUIDANCE THROUGH 2022





DENVER, March 11, 2019 - Hallador Energy Company (Nasdaq: HNRG) reports financial and operating results for the year ended December 31, 2018.   Hallador filed its Form 10-K after the markets closed today.



Brent Bilsland, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We have had an exceptional sales season.  As a result, we are raising our 2019 sales guidance to 8.2 million tons from 7.3 million tons in 2018.  Additionally, we are forecasting sales of 8.0 million tons annually for 2020-2022 time frame.  Currently we have 78% of our production sold for the next four years, providing great cash flow visibility for Hallador shareholders.  Additionally, we have nearly doubled the number of power plants we serve from 9 in 2017 to 17 powerplants today.  We estimate our new customers’ total demand to be 165% greater than the customers we served in 2017, providing exciting new sales opportunities going forward.”



Highlights for the year include:



·

Net Income



o

$7.6 million, $0.25 per share for the year ended December 31, 2018.



·

Coal Sales



o

Contracted 12.0 million tons of additional coal sales during the year for the 2019-2022 time period. 



o

Dramatically increased the number of power plants served as a result of three fundamental changes in our market:



·

A large Indiana industrial customer chose to close their coal mines and purchase coal from Sunrise under long-term contracts. 



·

The addition of our new Princeton Loop has allowed us to access new markets served by the Norfolk and Southern Railroad (NS).



·

A greater percentage of Illinois Basin (ILB) coal is going to export, thus tightening supply.  This has led to new customers contracting with Sunrise for the first time.



·

Production



o

Reopened the Carlisle Mine, returning Sunrise’s production capacity to 10.5 million tons annually.



o

Produced 7.6 million tons of coal in 2018, up from 6.6 million tons in 2017.



o

Anticipating over 8.0 million tons of production annually for the next 4 years.

*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.
