OutlookCommenting on ARLP’s outlook Mr. Craft said, "Assuming normal weather patterns and continued strength in natural gas prices, we expect U.S. steam coal demand will grow in 2013 - removing the current inventory overhang and setting the stage for higher spot coal prices in the second half of 2013. The exact timing and magnitude of these market improvements will be affected by the strength of the economy, both global and domestic. We expect ARLP's coal production and sales volumes in 2013 to increase 11.0% to 13.0% over 2012 levels. With over 95.0% of these estimated volumes priced and committed, ARLP is on track to again deliver solid cash flow growth in 2013 and build on our record of distribution increases to our unitholders."
