Recent News & Updates
Alliance Resource Partners: Expect Higher Distributions In 2022 But Watch Out For 2023
After reinstating their distributions early in 2021, Alliance Resource Partners has now doubled them following a strong third quarter. This has been supported by their surging free cash flow and when looking ahead, they could afford to double their distributions once again providing these favorable operating conditions continue unabated. This has also sent their net debt plunging towards zero by approximately the middle of 2022. This makes it reasonable to expect higher distributions in 2022 given the lack of competing uses for their ample free cash flow. Despite being positive, it would be best to watch out for 2023 and beyond with management voicing concerns over coal power plants closures and thus I still believe that only a neutral rating is appropriate.
Alliance Resource Partners: A Higher Yield Is Inbound, Could Be 10%+
After only reinstating their distributions one quarter ago, Alliance Resource Partners is already talking of taking a relook with an eye towards further increases. Their free cash flow has surged during the second quarter of 2021, which provides a very solid base for higher distributions. Even without further operating condition improvements, they could still conservatively offer a 10%+ distribution yield on current cost. They have now reached their leverage target and when combined with their strong liquidity, they have no financial handbrake stopping higher distributions. Whilst this makes it appear that a higher yield is inbound, the long-term questions over their future coal-reliant earnings remain, and thus I only believe that a neutral rating is appropriate.
