  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Foresight Energy Partners LP is a producer and marketer of thermal coal.

  • 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "On March 1, FELP announced a 4Q16 beat, with adjusted EBITDA (excluding insurance recoveries) of $78M, above consensus’ estimate of $73M. Against our estimates, the company beat on strong coal prices, up over $5.00/ton QOQ. FELP attributed its improved 4Q16 pricing to “a substantial rise in API 2 prices during the latter part of 2016.” Although the API 2 forward curve remains in backwardation, we expect significant export sales in 2017 while the current-month price remains elevated. The company reported 16.9M tons committed for delivery in 2017, of which 15.2M tons are priced. Versus our 2017 sales volumes expectation, of about 20M tons, roughly 75% of sales would be priced. FELP provided no other guidance for sales volumes (domestic or export), pricing, or costs anticipated for 2017. It has submitted a plan for reentry of the Hillsboro mine and will work with MSHA moving forward, noting that it did not “anticipate any production from Hillsboro in the foreseeable future.” Importantly, the partnership also announced its intention to extend maturities of a portion or all of its existing indebtedness (detailed below)."
