09:18 EDTCLD, WLBCloud Peak amends throughput agreement with Westshore Terminals
Cloud Peak Energy (CLD) announced that its logistics business has increased its committed capacity and extended the term of its throughput agreement with Westshore Terminals Limited Partnership for exports of low sulfur coal from Roberts Bank, British Columbia. In a related agreement, Cloud Peak Energy paid $37M to Coal Valley Resources, a recently acquired unit of Westmoreland Coal (WLB), for CVRI to voluntarily terminate its throughput agreement with Westshore Terminals, freeing up available space at the fully utilized Westshore Terminal. The amendment to Cloud Peak Energy’s throughput agreement is effective as of January 1, 2015 and extends the term through the end of 2024. The amendment also increases annual throughput volumes and associated take-or-pay commitments. As a result of the amendment, Cloud Peak Energy expects to increase its 2015 Asian exports to 6.0 to 6.5 million tons, compared to the 4.0 to 4.5 million tons currently forecasted for 2014. Cloud Peak Energy plans to provide additional 2015 export guidance in early 2015 as part of its year-end 2014 earnings announcement. Starting in 2019, Cloud Peak Energy expects to increase its Asian exports through the Westshore Terminal to 7.0 to 7.5 million tons.

09:39 EDTCLDCloud Peak updates 2014 shipment, adjusted EBITDA outlook
The company updated its guidance for 2014 coal shipments for its three owned and operated mines to between 83 million and 86 million tons, compared to its July 29, 2014 guidance of 85 million to 89 million tons. The Company also updated its guidance for 2014 Adjusted EBITDA to between $170M-$200M. On July 29, the company issued 2014 Adjusted EBITDA guidance of $180M-$210M. Colin Marshall, Cloud Peak Energy’s President and CEO said, “As we previously stated, our earlier guidance ranges were dependent upon an improvement in rail performance through the end of the year. While we believe the rail performance issues are being addressed, the reality is that the improvements have not taken place at a sufficiently robust pace to allow us to maintain our previous guidance. In addition, in late August our Cordero Rojo Mine was impacted by a significant rain storm causing flooding and damage to some equipment, which will slow shipments and cause us to incur some additional costs. Accordingly, we are updating our Adjusted EBITDA and shipment guidance ranges to reflect these impacts.”
