Highlights:

  • Generated $82 million of free cash flow
  • Paid first quarter 2023 common unit distribution of $0.75 per unit
  • Redeemed $81 million of preferred units at par with cash
  • Leverage ratio of 0.6x as of June 30, 2023
  • Declares second quarter 2023 common unit distribution of $0.75

"NRP generated $82 million of free cash flow in the second quarter driven by a solid performance from our mineral rights assets along with strong sales prices and distributions from our soda ash investment," said Craig Nunez, NRP's president and chief operating officer. "I am also pleased to report that during the second quarter we redeemed $81 million of preferred units at par with cash, lowering the outstanding par value of preferred equity to $122 million. We remain steadfast in our strategy to pay off our debt and redeem our preferred equity while maintaining distributions to our common unitholders. We believe this is the right strategy to maximize unitholder value and advantageously position the business for the long term."

NRP announced today that the board of directors of its general partner declared a second quarter 2023 cash distribution of $0.75 per common unit to be paid on August 23, 2023, to unitholders of record on August 16, 2023. In addition, the board declared a $3.65 million cash distribution on NRP's outstanding preferred units. Future distributions on NRP's common and preferred units will be determined on a quarterly basis by the board of directors. The board of directors considers numerous factors each quarter in determining cash distributions including profitability, cash flow, debt service obligations, market conditions and outlook, estimated unitholder income tax liability, and the level of cash reserves that the board determines is necessary for future operating and capital needs.

NRP's liquidity was $62.7 million at June 30, 2023, consisting of $10.7 million of cash and $52.0 million of borrowing capacity available under its revolving credit facility.

Segment Performance

Mineral Rights

Mineral Rights net income, operating cash flow, and free cash flow for the second quarter of 2023 decreased $16.9 million, $15.3 million, and $15.3 million, respectively, as compared to the prior year period primarily due to decreased metallurgical coal sales prices in the second quarter of 2023. Approximately 70% of coal royalty revenues and approximately 55% of coal royalty sales volumes were derived from metallurgical coal in the second quarter of 2023.

While metallurgical and thermal coal prices have decreased from the beginning of the year and decreased significantly from the record highs seen in 2022, they both remain strong relative to historical norms. Transportation and logistics challenges, limited access to capital, and labor shortages limit operators' ability to increase production and sales which should provide continued price support.

NRP continues to explore opportunities for carbon neutral revenue across its large portfolio of land, mineral, and timber assets, including the sequestration of carbon dioxide underground and in standing forests, and the generation of electricity using geothermal, solar, and wind energy.

Soda Ash

Soda Ash net income in the second quarter of 2023 increased $12.3 million as compared to the prior year period primarily due to higher sales prices driven by strong demand in domestic and international markets, partially offset by lower soda ash production and sales volumes. Operating cash flow and free cash flow in the second quarter of 2023 improved $21.9 million as compared to the prior year period due to the early timing of distributions received from Sisecam Wyoming and a higher distribution amount driven by Sisecam Wyoming's strong operating performance in the second quarter of 2023.

After starting the year at historically high levels, global soda ash prices have fallen throughout the first half of the year. New supply from China entering the market in the second half of the year is expected to continue to put downward pressure on international soda ash pricing. However, NRP expects Sisecam Wyoming's domestic soda ash sales prices to remain elevated versus the spot market in the second half of the year as a result of negotiated 2023 domestic sales contracts entered into at the end of 2022.

Corporate and Financing

Corporate and Financing costs in the second quarter of 2023 decreased $8.1 million as compared to the prior year period primarily due to lower interest expense resulting from less debt outstanding. Operating cash flow and free cash flow in the second quarter of 2023 improved $11.6 million as compared to the prior year period primarily due to lower cash paid for interest as a result of the retirement of the 9.125% Senior Notes in 2022.

NRP retired an aggregate of 80,834 Class A Preferred Units in the second quarter of 2023, saving NRP $9.7 million annually in preferred unit cash distributions. Of the originally issued 250,000 Class A Preferred Units, 121,667 Class A Preferred Units remain outstanding.

In May 2023, NRP declared and paid a first quarter 2023 cash distribution of $0.75 per common unit and a $6.1 million cash distribution on the preferred units. Today, NRP declared a second quarter 2023 cash distribution of $0.75 per common unit and a $3.65 million cash distribution on its outstanding preferred units.

NRP's consolidated leverage ratio was 0.6x at June 30, 2023.

Concurrent with this announcement, we are providing qualified notice to brokers and nominees that hold NRP units on behalf of non-U.S. investors under Treasury Regulation Section 1.1446-4(b) and (d) and Treasury Regulation Section 1.1446(f)-4(c)(2)(iii). Brokers and nominees should treat one hundred percent (100%) of NRP's distributions to non-U.S. investors as being attributable to income that is effectively connected with a United States trade or business.

This press release includes forward-looking statements as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, included in this press release that address activities, events or developments that the Partnership expects, believes or anticipates will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements. These statements are based on certain assumptions made by the Partnership based on its experience and perception of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors it believes are appropriate in the circumstances.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

"Adjusted EBITDA" is a non-GAAP financial measure that we define as net income (loss) less equity earnings from unconsolidated investment; plus total distributions from unconsolidated investment, interest expense, net, debt modification expense, loss on extinguishment of debt, depreciation, depletion and amortization and asset impairments. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income or loss, net income or loss attributable to partners, operating income or loss, cash flows from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP as measures of operating performance, liquidity or ability to service debt obligations. There are significant limitations to using Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of performance, including the inability to analyze the effect of certain recurring items that materially affect our net income, the lack of comparability of results of operations of different companies and the different methods of calculating Adjusted EBITDA reported by different companies. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA presented below is not calculated or presented on the same basis as Consolidated EBITDA as defined in our partnership agreement or Consolidated EBITDDA as defined in Opco's debt agreements. Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental performance measure used by our management and by external users of our financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks, research analysts and others to assess the financial performance of our assets without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical cost basis.

"Distributable cash flow" or "DCF" is a non-GAAP financial measure that we define as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities plus distributions from unconsolidated investment in excess of cumulative earnings, proceeds from asset sales and disposals, including sales of discontinued operations, and return of long-term contract receivable; less maintenance capital expenditures. DCF 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. DCF may not be calculated the same for us as for other companies. In addition, distributable cash flow is not calculated or presented on the same basis as distributable cash flow as defined in our partnership agreement, which is used as a metric to determine whether we are able to increase quarterly distributions to our common unitholders. Distributable cash flow is a supplemental liquidity measure used by our management and by external users of our financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks, research analysts and others to assess our ability to make cash distributions and repay debt.

"Free cash flow" or "FCF" is a non-GAAP financial measure that we define as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities plus distributions from unconsolidated investment in excess of cumulative earnings and return of long-term contract receivable; less maintenance and expansion capital expenditures and cash flow used in acquisition costs classified as investing or financing activities. FCF is calculated before mandatory debt repayments. Free 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. Free cash flow may not be calculated the same for us as for other companies. Free cash flow is a supplemental liquidity measure used by our management and by external users of our financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks, research analysts and others to assess our ability to make cash distributions and repay debt.

"Cash flow cushion" is a non-GAAP financial measure that we define as free cash flow less one-time beneficial items, mandatory Opco debt repayments, preferred unit distributions, redemption of preferred units, redemption of PIK units, common unit distributions, and warrant cash settlements. Cash flow cushion 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. Cash flow cushion is a supplemental liquidity measure used by our management to assess the Partnership's ability to make or raise cash distributions to our common and preferred unitholders and our general partner and repay debt or redeem preferred units.

"Leverage ratio" represents the outstanding principal of NRP's debt at the end of the period divided by the last twelve months' Adjusted EBITDA as defined above. NRP believes that leverage ratio is a useful measure to management and investors to evaluate and monitor the indebtedness of NRP relative to its ability to generate income to service such debt and in understanding trends in NRPs overall financial condition. Leverage ratio may not be calculated the same for NRP as for other companies and is not a substitute for, and should not be used in conjunction with, GAAP financial ratios.
