Senior notes offering. Alliance recently completed a $400 million private offering of 8.625% senior unsecured notes due in 2029. A portion of the net proceeds will fund the redemption of its outstanding 7.5% senior notes due in 2025. Alliance delivered a notice of redemption for all outstanding 2025 notes. The redemption price for the 2025 notes is 100% of the principal amount plus accrued and unpaid interest to the redemption date, which is expected to be June 28. As of March 31, senior notes outstanding were $284.6 million.

Second quarter coal shipments. The partnership’s April 2024 coal sales volumes declined 15% to ~2.4 million tons versus ~2.9 million tons during the prior year month. In Appalachia, coal sales volumes decreased 48.2% compared to April 2023 due to the loss of 10 shipping days as a result of high-water events that impacted loading at the Tunnel Ridge complex, along with deferred shipments due to the Francis Scott Key Bridge collapse. In the Illinois Basin, coal sales volume remained relatively consistent with April 2023. Lower volumes at River View due to slowing barge traffic were almost entirely offset by higher volumes at Gibson South due to spot export sales. Volumes deferred at River View and Tunnel Ridge amounted to 420,000 tons and 77,000 tons, respectively, and are expected to be shipped throughout the balance of 2024.
