HALLADOR ENERGY COMPANY REPORTS SecondQUARTER 2020

FINANCIAL AND OPERATING RESULTS

Terre Haute, Ind., August 3, 2020 - Hallador Energy Company (NASDAQ - HNRG) today reported income of $0.25 million, $0.01 per share and adjusted EBITDA of $13.2 million.

Brent Bilsland, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, 'Hallador was profitable, despite the pandemic which wreaked havoc on energy markets. We further lowered our cost structure and debt levels, while focusing on helping customers manage inventory levels. We are cautiously optimistic as coal shipments, energy markets and hopefully the world have begun a recovery. '

During Q2 2020, production costs fell to $28.94 per ton, a 9% reduction over the prior quarter, even as shipment delays resulted in lower sales volumes.

In the first half of 2020, bank debt was reduced by $19 million, and operating cash flow was $17.2 million, in spite of coal inventories increasing by $13.8 million. We anticipate shipments to improve in the second half of the year and inventory levels to decline, improving operating cash flow.
As of June 30, 2020, our liquidity was $52.6 million and our leverage ratio remained below 3.0X, which is comfortably within our covenant of 4.0X.

Solid Sales Position Through 2022

o

Due to the impacts and economic uncertainty of COVID-19, the Company is suspending sales guidance but still carries a strong contracted sales position through 2022.

EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted free cash flow should not be considered alternatives to net income, income from operations, cash flows from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP. Our method of computing EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted free cash flow may not be the same method used to compute similar measures reported by other companies.

Management believes that the presentation of such additional financial measures provides useful information to investors regarding our performance and results of operations because these measures when used in conjunction with related GAAP financial measures, (i) provide additional information about our core operating performance and ability to generate and distribute cash flow, (ii) provide investors with the financial and analytical framework upon which management bases financial, operation, compensation, and planning decisions, and (iii) present measurements that investors, rating agencies, and debt holders have indicated are useful in assessing our results.
