Presentation at NobleCon19. During Noble’s recent investor conference, Mr. Cary Marshall, Senior Vice President and CFO, provided a corporate overview and participated in an economic perspectives panel moderated by Emmy award winning reporter Michael Williams. Mr. Marshall highlighted how Alliance is well positioned to benefit from the electrification of the U.S. economy. He noted that while U.S. total electricity generation grew by 0.5 trillion kilowatt hours during the period 2000 to 2020, the U.S. Energy Information Administration forecasts total generation growth of 1.3 trillion kilowatt hours between 2023 to 2050. Growth in electric vehicles, onshoring of U.S. manufacturing, data center growth, and use of computer applications are expected to provide a boost in demand for electricity.
A forward-thinking diversified energy company. While Alliance’s coal business generates the largest share of the partnership’s revenue and EBITDA, investors may underappreciate the fact that ARLP is evolving into a more diversified company. Since 2014, the company has invested a total of $705 million to grow its oil & gas royalty business and has also invested in businesses that position it to evolve with the needs of the market, including Infinitum (electric motor technology), Ascend Elements (battery metals recycling), and Matrix Design Group, a wholly owned subsidiary that provides mining and industrial technology solutions.
