Alliance Resource Partners, L.P. Announces Pricing of $400 Million Private Offering of Senior Notes

Alliance Resource Partners, L.P. (NASDAQ: ARLP) (“ARLP”) announced today that Alliance Resource Operating Partners, L.P. (“AROP”), the intermediate partnership of ARLP, and Alliance Resource Finance Corporation, AROP’s wholly owned subsidiary, priced the previously announced private placement of $400 million in aggregate principal amount of 8.625% senior unsecured notes due 2029 (the “New Notes”). The New Notes will be issued at par. The offering is expected to close on or about June 12, 2024, subject to customary closing conditions.

AROP expects to use a portion of the net proceeds from the offering of the New Notes to fund the redemption of its outstanding 7.5% Senior Notes due 2025 (the “2025 Notes”) and the remaining for general corporate purposes. On May 29, 2024, AROP delivered a conditional notice of redemption, subject to consummation of the offering of the New Notes, for all of the outstanding 2025 Notes. The redemption price for the 2025 Notes is 100% of the principal amount of the 2025 Notes outstanding, plus accrued and unpaid interest to the redemption date, which is expected to be June 28, 2024. This communication shall not constitute a notice of redemption under the indenture governing the 2025 Notes.

The New Notes have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or under the securities laws of any other jurisdiction. Thus, the New Notes may be offered only in transactions that are exempt from registration under the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. The New Notes are offered only to qualified institutional buyers under Rule 144A and to persons outside the United States under Regulation S of the Securities Act. The New Notes will not be listed on any securities exchange or automated quotation system.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy the New Notes, nor shall there be any sale of the New Notes in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
