ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Foresight Energy LP (NYSE:FELP) today reported financial and operating results for the fourth quarter and year ended 2016. Foresight generated fiscal year 2016 coal sales revenues of $866.6 million on sales volumes of 19.3 million tons resulting in Adjusted EBITDA of $308.8 million, cash flows from operations of $225.2 million and a net loss attributable to limited partner units of $178.8 million, or $(1.37) per unit. Annual sales volumes for 2016 decreased 12% compared to 2015 due in part to lower production as a result of Foresight’s Hillsboro mine being idled for all of 2016 due to the combustion event. Operating results for 2016 were also negatively impacted by a fourth quarter prepaid royalty impairment charge of $74.6 million, $13.2 million of debt extinguishment costs, $21.8 million of debt restructuring costs and a non-cash charge of $17.1 million related to the change in fair value of warrants issued as part of the August 30, 2016 debt restructuring. Partially offsetting these charges were $30.5 million of insurance recoveries received in 2016 related to the combustion event at our Hillsboro operation ($10.5 million for the reimbursement of mitigation costs, which were recorded as a reduction in cost of coal sales and $20.0 million related to business interruption proceeds, which were recorded in other operating income, net in our consolidated statement of operations). “Calendar year 2016 was extremely challenging for Foresight with a global restructuring of our debt obligations during a period of incredible decline in the coal industry. Despite many distractions, our operations performed exceptionally well. We delivered improved safety results and continued to lead the industry in terms of production and mining cost in the Illinois Basin. While coal markets were under unprecedented downward pressure during most of 2016, our mines generated strong positive cash flow despite operating well below capacity,” said Robert D. Moore, President and Chief Executive Officer. “For the year, we saw moderate improvements in our per ton sales realizations and significant cost per ton improvements of over $1.30 per ton, which led to the generation of $225.2 million of operating cash. This improved operating performance resulted in Foresight ending the year with $103.7 million of cash compared to $17.5 million as of December 31, 2015. As previously mentioned, we have recently undertaken a process to take advantage of our operating successes and improvements in the capital markets to refinance and extend maturities of a portion or all of our existing indebtedness.” Coal sales totaled $866.6 million for 2016 compared to $979.2 million for 2015. The decline in coal sales revenue from the prior year was driven by a decrease in coal sales volumes of 2.7 million tons partially offset by an increase in coal sales realizations of $0.35 per ton sold. The decline in coal sales volumes is attributed to a decrease in production at the Hillsboro operation resulting from the combustion event that has idled the mine since March 2015, as well as difficult coal market conditions that persisted for the majority of 2016. The increase in coal sales realization per ton was driven by improvements in export pricing during the latter part of 2016. Cost of coal produced was $424.0 million for 2016 compared to $509.2 million for 2015. The decrease during the current year was due to lower sales volumes as well as a reduction in our cash cost per ton sold. The improvement in cash cost per ton sold was driven by increased production at our non-Hillsboro mines which allowed for better leveraging of fixed costs and additional synergies related to the transaction with Murray Energy, including lower mine overhead costs and operational efficiencies. Additionally, the direct and indirect costs of the Hillsboro combustion event during 2016 were offset by $10.5 million in insurance recoveries received in 2016 for the reimbursement of previously incurred mitigation costs. Foresight recorded a loss on its commodity derivative contracts of $23.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2016, compared to a gain of $45.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2015. The loss during the current year was driven by a substantial increase in the API 2 forward price curve during the latter part of 2016. For the years ended 2016 and 2015, Foresight recognized settlements on commodity derivative contracts of $12.6 million and $61.2 million, respectively. Transportation costs declined by $32.1 million from the prior year due to lower export sales volumes offset partially by higher charges for shortfalls on minimum contractual throughput volume requirements. During 2016, Foresight shipped 17% of its sales volumes to the export market compared to 24% during the prior year. Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased $6.1 million compared to 2015 due primarily to an equity award granted to the former chief executive officer of the Partnership during 2015 that resulted in $7.1 million of immediate expense recognition. During the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, impairment charges of $74.6 million and $12.6 million, respectively, were recorded primarily to establish a reserve on certain prepaid royalties for which it was determined that recoupment was improbable. Transition and reorganization costs for 2016 totaled $6.9 million, compared to $21.4 million for 2015. The transition and reorganization costs during 2016 were comprised of the remaining retention compensation related to certain employees during the transition period resulting from the Murray Energy transaction that occurred in April 2015. For fiscal year 2016, Foresight recorded $22.2 million of other operating income compared to $13.4 million recorded for fiscal year 2015. The fourth quarter of 2016 was benefited by $20.0 million in business interruption insurance recoveries related to the Hillsboro combustion event whereas 2015 was benefited by a $13.5 million legal settlement with Murray Energy. Interest expense for 2016 increased $31.9 million from the prior year due primarily to higher effective interest rates under the new and amended debt instruments as well as higher interest rates under the term loan, revolving credit facility and A/R securitization facility prior to the closing date of the debt restructuring transactions due to default interest rates being in effect. As a result of the bondholder litigation and the completed global restructuring of Foresight’s debt, the Partnership also recognized $21.8 million in debt restructuring costs and a $13.2 million loss on the early extinguishment of debt during 2016. Cash flows provided by operations totaled $225.2 million for 2016 and Foresight ended the year with $103.7 million in cash compared to $17.5 million as of December 31, 2015, representing an increase in cash of $86.2 million. During 2016, capital expenditures were $54.6 million, a decrease of $30.4 million compared to the year ended December 31, 2015. Three Months Ended December 31, 2016 Compared to Three Months Ended December 31, 2015 Coal sales were $251.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016 compared to $239.2 million for the prior year period. The increase in coal sales was driven by an increase in coal sales realizations of $5.02 per ton due to a substantial rise in API 2 prices during the latter part of 2016. Cost of coal produced for the three months ended December 31, 2016 was $112.4 million, compared to $148.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015. The prior year fourth quarter’s cash cost per ton was unfavorably impacted by low production, as shifts were reduced in order to preserve liquidity, and substantial mitigation costs related to the Hillsboro combustion event. This press release contains “forward-looking” statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. These statements contain words such as “possible,” “intend,” “will,” “if” and “expect” and can be impacted by numerous factors, including risks relating to the securities markets, the impact of adverse market conditions affecting business of the Partnership, adverse changes in laws including with respect to tax and regulatory matters and other risks. There can be no assurance that actual results will not differ from those expected by management of the Partnership. Known material factors that could cause actual results to differ from those in the forward-looking statements are described in Part I, “Item 1A. Risk Factors” of the Partnership’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on March 1, 2017. The Partnership undertakes no obligation to update or revise such forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances that occur, or which the Partnership becomes aware of, after the date hereof. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP supplemental financial measure that management and external users of the Partnership’s consolidated financial statements, such as industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies, may use to assess: The Partnership defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) attributable to controlling interests before interest, income taxes, depreciation, depletion, amortization and accretion. Adjusted EBITDA is also adjusted for equity-based compensation, losses/gains on commodity derivative contracts, settlements of derivative contracts, a change in the fair value of the warrant liability and material nonrecurring or other items which may not reflect the trend of future results. As it relates to commodity derivative contracts, the Adjusted EBITDA calculation removes the total impact of derivative gains/losses on net income (loss) during the period and then add/deducts to Adjusted EBITDA the amount of aggregate settlements during the period. The Partnership believes the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors in assessing the Partnership’s financial condition and results of operations. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to net (loss) income, operating income, or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, nor should Adjusted EBITDA be considered an alternative to operating surplus, adjusted operating surplus or other definitions in the Partnership’s partnership agreement. Adjusted EBITDA has important limitations as an analytical tool because it excludes some, but not all, of the items that affects net (loss) income. Additionally, because Adjusted EBITDA may be defined differently by other companies in the industry, and the Partnership’s definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, the utility of such a measure is diminished. For a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net (loss) income attributable to controlling interests, please see the table below. Foresight Energy LP is a leading producer and marketer of thermal coal controlling over 2 billion tons of coal reserves in the Illinois Basin. Foresight currently owns four mining complexes (Williamson, Sugar Camp, Hillsboro and Macoupin), with four longwall systems, and the Sitran river terminal on the Ohio River. Foresight’s operations are strategically located near multiple rail and river transportation access points, providing transportation cost certainty and flexibility to direct shipments to the domestic and international markets.

ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Foresight Energy LP (NYSE:FELP) today reported preliminary unaudited financial and operating results for fourth quarter and full-year 2016. Sales volumes of 5.2 million tons during fourth quarter 2016 generated coal sales revenue of $251.0 million contributing to a net loss attributable to limited partner units of approximately $85.0 million or $(0.65) per unit (compared to a net loss of $64.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2015) and Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $98.0 million (compared to $42.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2015). As of December 31, 2016, Foresight Energy LP and its subsidiaries had $103.7 million of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents on hand and $1.4 billion of total debt, including $352.5 million drawn on its revolving credit facility (which has total commitments of $450.0 million and outstanding letters of credit of $7.0 million).

ROCHESTER, Mich., Feb. 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Half of all new cars and trucks will be accessorized in the first two years of ownership, representing over 7 million new vehicles being accessorized each year.  And when making decisions about the accessories they buy, consumers rank accessory brand names high on their list of important criteria, according to a recent study by metro-Detroit based automotive research firm Foresight Research.  According to the recently released study, “Inside the Accessory Buyer’s Mind,” most recent new car and truck buyers who install accessories within their first two years of ownership say that accessory brand names are important; moreover, more than half say it is important that accessories are made by their own new vehicle brand. The study found that spur-of-the-moment accessory sales happen infrequently – the majority of new vehicle buyers are doing careful research before making the purchase.  With most of this research being done on the web and through brochures, Chris Stommel, President of Foresight Research says that accessories carrying a reputable brand name - such as a vehicle manufacturer’s own brand - along with a communications marketing strategy that includes digital and brochures, will go a long way toward a successful marketing strategy. “The showroom remains a critical point-of-purchase; the study confirms that when personnel do hold an accessory conversation during the dealership visit, both installation rates and total spending rise,” Stommel says.  “But as today’s consumers are well-prepared before that even occurs, accessory marketers need a clear understanding of their customers, where they are gathering their information – and what messages will ring the bell.  This is particularly important when trying to capture the big spenders – those representing just 29% of all accessory buyers yet 76% of all dollars spent.” The study also finds that across the industry, accessory dollars per new vehicle retailed averages $247 in the first 120 days and $974 within the first two years.  Of all 23 brands studied, the leaders in installation and spending are luxury brands (Acura, BMW, Audi and Cadillac), while Ram and Ford lead in the all-important pickup truck segment. Stommel adds that with 1-in-5 accessory buyers reporting that accessories played a major role in their vehicle purchase decision, a successful accessory marketing strategy can pay off not only in accessory revenue but also in influencing the vehicle purchase. The “Inside the Accessory Buyers Mind” report outlines the accessory market size and structure, buyer attitudes and behaviors, effective marketing strategies and the roles of accessory branding and budget. About Foresight Research – www.foresightresearch.com Foresight Research specializes in syndicated and custom studies focusing on key influencers of purchase decisions in the automotive industry.  Since 2008, Foresight Research publishes syndicated reports each year that provide information, strategies and best practices to help auto companies, their partners, and auto dealers to build, position, and support marketing insights and actions.

The Impact Factors (IFs) of the Institute for Scientific Information suffer from a number of drawbacks, among them the statisticsâWhy should one use the mean and not the median?âand the incomparability among fields of science because of systematic differences in citation behavior among fields. Can these drawbacks be counteracted by fractionally counting citation weights instead of using whole numbers in the numerators? (a) Fractional citation counts are normalized in terms of the citing sources and thus would take into account differences in citation behavior among fields of science. (b) Differences in the resulting distributions can be tested statistically for their significance at different levels of aggregation. (c) Fractional counting can be generalized to any document set including journals or groups of journals, and thus the significance of differences among both small and large sets can be tested. A list of fractionally counted IFs for 2008 is available online at The between-group variance among the 13 fields of science identified in the U.S. Science and Engineering Indicators is no longer statistically significant after this normalization. Although citation behavior differs largely between disciplines, the reflection of these differences in fractionally counted citation distributions can not be used as a reliable instrument for the classification. © 2010 ASIS&T.

Currently, red imported fire ants (RIFA) "Solenopsis invicta," infest over 140 million hectares in the USA. The estimated annual cost for controlling these invasive pests and to repair damage caused by them is approximately 6 billion dollars. The RIFA directly impact crops, livestock, nurseries, sod producers; electronics, communications and airports; households; and other economic sectors. In addition, humans are impacted directly. Approximately 50% of the population in infested areas is stung per year, with approximately 5% developing hypersensitivity. The bottom line is that RIFA infestation results in higher food production costs by decreasing yields. Further, they are a direct contributor to increased use of broad-spectrum insecticides that also harm other beneficial insects, increased medical and veterinary costs, damage to equipment and ecological impact.There is a great need for non-insecticidal methods for controlling the spread of RIFA. No naturally occurring insecticides that only target imported fire ants currently exist. The successful execution of this SBIR grant will result in developing naturally-occuring, species-specific affordable, biologically active compounds that can be used commercially for fire ant control. This in turn will lead to increased crop and animal production, thereby increasing food security of the nation.The project will build upon prior research and will be conducted with the assistance of a CRADA with the USDA Agricultural Research Service and in collaboration with Virginia Military Institute and the VMI Foundation.
