Natural Resource Partners L.P. Reports 2013 Results

2013 Highlights

HOUSTON, Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Natural Resource Partners L.P. (NYSE:NRP) today reported 2013 revenues of $358.1 million compared to $379.1 million for 2012 and net income per unit of $1.54 versus $1.97 reported for 2012.  Distributable cash flow was $309.4 million for 2013 compared to $298.9 million for 2012.  NRP also reported EBITDA of $316.7 million for 2013 versus $328.1 million for 2012.  Reconciliations of the non-GAAP measures of distributable cash flow and EBITDA are included in the tables at the end of this release.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2013, revenues totaled $94.7 million compared to $102.4 million reported for the same period 2012.  Net income per unit for the fourth quarter was $0.42 per unit compared to $0.56 per unit for the fourth quarter 2012.  Distributable cash flow for the fourth quarter was $69.6 million and EBITDA was $87.1 million compared to $87.6 million and $92.0 million, respectively, for the fourth quarter 2012.

"In 2013, NRP made big strides in our diversification process with over $365 million of acquisitions outside of the coal space," said Nick Carter, President and Chief Operating Officer.  "Our investment in OCI Wyoming, a trona and soda ash operation, helped to dampen the impact of a decline in coal revenues in Appalachia.  While coal related revenues remain a large portion of NRP's business, the investments made to diversify our revenues, including the two Williston Basin oil and gas acquisitions completed in 2013, will continue to minimize the impact of the weaker coal markets until a recovery is experienced in both the metallurgical and thermal coal markets. The results of NRP's operations reported today were in the middle to upper end of the 2013 guidance ranges released in August and reconfirmed in early January."

Twelve Months 2013 compared to Twelve Months 2012

Revenues
Total revenues for 2013 declined 6% to $358.1 million from the same period of 2012 due to a decrease in coal related revenues offset by equity income from the OCI investment and increased oil and gas revenues.  Coal royalty revenues decreased $48.1 million, or 18%, from 2012 to $212.7 million due primarily to decreases in prices for both metallurgical and steam coal. Coal production volumes decreased slightly to 53.3 million tons, while average coal royalty revenue per ton decreased 17% to $3.99 per ton.  Metallurgical coal represented 31% of coal production and 41% of coal royalty revenues for 2013.   

NRP benefitted from its diversification into other asset classes, as revenues other than coal royalty revenues increased to 41% of total revenues in 2013 as compared to 31% of total revenues in 2012.  The increase was primarily due to revenues associated with the investment in OCI Wyoming, as well as increases in aggregates and oil and gas revenues.  These increases more than offset the slight decreases experienced in infrastructure revenues and overriding royalties, as well as the larger decrease in minimums recognized as revenue, all of which are primarily coal related. 

Operating Expenses
Total operating expenses increased by 9% mainly due to increased depreciation, depletion and amortization resulting from production from higher cost properties and increased general and administrative expense.  

Net Income
Net income attributable to the limited partners and net income per unit decreased 19% and 22% respectively in 2013 compared to the 2012 period. In addition to lower revenues and higher expenses, a small portion of the decrease in net income per unit was due to an increase in the number of units outstanding in 2013 versus the same period in 2012. 

Distributable Cash Flow
Distributable cash flow increased by 4% to $309.4 million mainly due to cash distributions received from OCI Wyoming, which offset other declines. 

EBITDA
EBITDA declined 3% in 2013 to $316.7 million from the $328.1 million generated in 2012.  The decrease is mainly related to decreased coal related revenues.  NRP, due to its unique business structure that generates predominantly royalty income, realized an EBITDA margin of 88% in 2013 versus 87% in 2012.

Revenues
Total revenues for the fourth quarter increased 15% to $94.7 million from the third quarter due to increased revenue from our equity investment in OCI, increased oil and gas revenues, and the receipt of a right-of-way condemnation payment of $10.4 million in the fourth quarter.  These increases more than offset the 18% decline in coal production, a significant portion of which was due to lessees mining on adjacent property not owned by NRP, and the resultant decrease in coal royalty revenues. The 11% increase in coal royalty revenue per ton over the third quarter is predominantly due to lower production allocable to NRP in the fourth quarter on properties that receive lower royalty rates than the remainder of the production.  These properties are currently mining on adjacent reserves.

Operating Expenses
Operating expenses were less than the third quarter predominantly due to lower depreciation, depletion and amortization on lower production volumes. 

Net Income
Net income to the limited partners and net income per unit increased 30% in the fourth quarter from the previous quarter mainly due to higher revenues other than coal royalty revenues, decreased depreciation, depletion and amortization partially offset by declines in coal related revenues and increased interest expense related to the high-yield notes issued in September 2013. 

Distributable Cash Flow
Distributable cash flow decreased $35.0 million in the fourth quarter, as NRP received a special one-time distribution of $44.8 million from OCI during the third quarter.

EBITDA
EBITDA for the fourth quarter 2013 increased to $87.1 million over the $72.9 million generated in the third quarter 2013.  The EBITDA margin for the fourth quarter was 92%, up from 89% in the third quarter.

Market Outlook

As a result of the exceptionally cold winter of 2013-2014, natural gas prices have increased substantially and natural gas storage levels have dropped below the five-year average.  In addition, utilities have been running their coal units, including those units expected to be retired in 2015, at near full capacity, and coal stockpiles have been reduced below their 2013 levels.  The impact of the high natural gas prices and cold weather on thermal coal prices has been muted so far, but utilities have entered 2014 with larger spot positions than in the past, and the reduced stockpiles could force them to purchase coal on the spot market at higher prices during the peak heating and cooling seasons in 2014.  "Higher natural gas prices and the possibility of improving thermal coal prices due to the weather, benefits NRP in both our interests in natural gas as well as our coal business," said Nick Carter.  "On the other hand, federal government policy and regulations are continuing to be challenging." 

On the metallurgical side of the market, NRP continues to have substantial exposure to metallurgical coal, from which it derived 31% of its coal production and 41% of its coal royalty revenues during 2013.  The market remains weak, with the first quarter 2014 benchmark price at a multi-year low of $143 per metric ton.  Although global demand for steel continues to increase, global production continues to outpace demand. In addition, rising exports of metallurgical coal from Australia continue to have a negative effect on prices received for metallurgical coal produced in the United States.  "NRP does not anticipate metallurgical coal prices to recover in 2014, due to the continued high global production levels and currently weak Australian and Canadian dollars," said Nick Carter.

As indicated in the guidance issued in January, NRP anticipates significant growth in its oil and gas revenues in 2014, primarily due to increased crude oil production derived from the two recent Williston Basin acquisitions.  As NRP completes additional oil and gas acquisitions and the current assets become developed further, NRP will report more detailed information to the market related to the reserves, production and commodity prices.  NRP is currently not hedged with respect to any of its oil and gas assets.  In addition to the coal and oil and gas markets, NRP now has exposure to the soda ash market through its investment in OCI Wyoming.  NRP anticipates receiving approximately $42.5 million in distributions from OCI in 2014, and believes that the domestic soda ash market will remain stable throughout the year.  Market reports indicate that the international soda ash market should show improvement over 2013, primarily due to anticipated price increases in the Asian market.

Distributions

In January 2014, the Board of Directors of NRP's general partner declared a quarterly distribution of $0.35 per unit for the fourth quarter 2013.  This $0.20 per unit reduction in the quarterly distribution will reduce NRP's total distributions by approximately $90 million in 2014. The reduction was predicated by the lower budgeted revenues and increased interest expense expected in 2014 and will allow NRP to preserve its liquidity for acquisitions.

Acquisitions and Liquidity

In 2013, NRP invested more than $365 million in non-coal-related acquisitions in an effort to diversify its revenues.

At year-end 2013, NRP's liquidity was approximately $390 million, consisting of $93 million in cash and $296 million available under its credit facilities.  This positions NRP to continue to make accretive acquisitions that will create value for its unitholders.

Company Profile

Natural Resource Partners L.P. is a master limited partnership headquartered in Houston, TX, with its operations headquarters in Huntington, WV.  NRP is principally engaged in the business of owning and managing mineral reserve properties.  NRP primarily owns coal, aggregate and oil and gas reserves across the United States that generate royalty income for the partnership.  In addition, NRP owns an equity investment in OCI Wyoming, a trona/soda ash operation, and owns non-operated working interests in oil and gas properties.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

"Distributable cash flow" represents cash flow from operations plus any distributions received in excess of equity income recognized  for OCI Wyoming,  plus any proceeds from the sale of assets plus the return on direct financing lease and contractual overrides shown in the cash flows from investing activities section of the cash flow statement.  Distributable cash flow is a "non-GAAP financial measure" that is presented because management believes it is a useful adjunct to net cash provided by operating activities under GAAP. Distributable cash flow is a significant liquidity metric that is an indicator of NRP's ability to make quarterly cash distributions to its partners. Distributable cash flow is also the quantitative standard used throughout the investment community with respect to publicly traded partnerships. Distributable cash flow is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities. A reconciliation of distributable cash flow to net cash provided by operating activities is included in the tables attached to this release.  Distributable cash flow may not be calculated the same for NRP as other companies.

"EBITDA" is a non-GAAP financial measure that we define as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, depletion and amortization and asset impairment. "EBITDA," as used and defined by us, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies and is not a measure of performance calculated in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating income, net income or loss, cash flows provided by operating, investing and financing activities, or other income or cash flow statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA provides no information regarding a company's capital structure, borrowings, interest costs, capital expenditures, and working capital movement or tax positions. EBITDA does not represent funds available for discretionary use because those funds may be required for debt service, capital expenditures, working capital and other commitments and obligations. Our management team believes EBITDA is useful in evaluating our financial performance because this measure is widely used by analysts and investors for comparative purposes. NRP has not previously included EBITDA as a financial measure in its press releases. However, NRP entered the high-yield bond market in 2013, and EBITDA is a financial measure widely used by investors in that market.  There are significant limitations to using EBITDA as a measure of performance, including the inability to analyze the effect of certain recurring and non-recurring items that materially affect our net income or loss, the lack of comparability of results of operations of different companies and the different methods of calculating EBITDA reported by different companies.

"EBITDA margin" represents NRP's EBITDA as a percentage of total revenues.

In his session at DevOps Summit, Damon Edwards, co-founder and managing partner of the DTO Solutions, will highlight the successful organizational, process, and tooling patterns of high-performing c...
Software-driven innovation is becoming a primary approach to how businesses create and deliver new value to customers. A survey of 400 business and IT executives by the IBM Institute for Business Value showed businesses that are more effective at software delivery are also more profitable than their peers nearly 70 percent of the time (1). DevOps provides a way for businesses to remain competitive, applying lean and agile principles to software development to speed the delivery of software that ...
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from ha...
Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API. Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment. This "containerization" has often been nicknamed "the new virtualization." But containers are more than lightweight virtual machines. Beyond their small...
The move in recent years to cloud computing services and architectures has added significant pace to the application development and deployment environment. When enterprise IT can spin up large computing instances in just minutes, developers can also design and deploy in small time frames that were unimaginable a few years ago. The consequent move toward lean, agile, and fast development leads to the need for the development and operations sides to work very closely together. Thus, DevOps become...

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com...
