Walter Energy Announces First Quarter 2013 Results Company Reports 9% Increase in Met Coal Sales Volumes Compared to the Fourth Quarter of 2012 Adjusted EBITDA Improves to $32.0 Million Improved Operating Performance Reflects a 12% Sequential Increase in Met Coal Production Volumes and a 12% Reduction in Met Coal Cash Cost of Sales per Ton Recent Debt Offering Enhances Liquidity and Extends Debt Maturities Business Wire BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- May 01, 2013 Walter Energy Inc. (NYSE:WLT) (TSX:WLT), a leading, publicly traded “pure-play” producer of metallurgical (met) coal for the global steel industry, today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013. Revenues were $491 million in the first quarter of 2013, an increase of 3% from the fourth quarter of 2012. Revenues declined from $632 million in the first quarter of 2012, due to industry-wide lower metallurgical coal prices. The Company reported a net loss of $49.4 million, or a $0.79 loss per diluted share in the first quarter, compared to a net loss of $71.0 million, or a $1.13 loss per diluted share in the fourth quarter 2012 and compared to net income of $40.6 million, or $0.65 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2012. The first quarter of 2013 loss includes charges of $4.9 million, net of tax, or $0.08 per share related to curtailing production at the Willow Creek mine and $4.4 million, net of tax, or $0.07 per share primarily related to proxy contest expenses. Excluding these charges and adjustments described in the Company’s “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” the first quarter 2013 adjusted net loss was $40.1 million, or a $0.64 loss per diluted share, and Adjusted EBITDA was $32.0 million. “In the first quarter, we made continued progress on our key strategic initiatives, most notably on our aggressive cost reduction efforts,” said Walt Scheller, Chief Executive Officer. “While we have seen stronger demand in 2013, met coal pricing has improved only marginally, and the recovery in the global economy and metallurgical coal markets remains uncertain. We remain focused on operating safely, further reducing costs, carefully managing capital spending, improving liquidity and reducing our debt levels as we position the Company to benefit when markets recover.” Metallurgical Sales Volume and Pricing First quarter of 2013 met coal sales volume, including both hard coking coal (HCC) and low-volatility (low-vol) PCI, was 2.8 million metric tons (MMTs), an increase of 17% and 9%, respectively, compared to first quarter of 2012 and the fourth quarter of 2012. HCC sales volume was 2.4 MMTs in the first quarter of 2013 compared to 1.9 MMTs and 2.0 MMTs in the first quarter of 2012 and fourth quarter of 2012, respectively. Low-vol PCI sales volume was 0.4 MMTs compared to 0.5 MMTs in both the prior year comparable period and the fourth quarter of 2012. In the first quarter of 2013, met coal sales tonnage was approximately 88% of total coal sales volume. Overall in the first quarter, pricing strengthened. Average realized met coal pricing improved 2% as compared to the fourth quarter 2012. The average first quarter 2013 selling price of HCC (primarily low-vol and mid-vol) was $154 per metric ton (MT), which was slightly higher than the fourth quarter’s average price of $152 per MT and significantly less than first quarter 2012 average price of $225 per MT. The average selling price for low-vol PCI was $139 per MT as compared to $128 per MT in the prior quarter and $188 per MT in the prior year comparable quarter. Metallurgical Coal Production Met coal production was 2.8 MMTs in the first quarter of 2013, comprised of 2.3 MMTs of HCC and 0.5 MMTs of low-vol PCI. Met coal production increased 12% from the 2.5 MMTs produced in the fourth quarter of 2012. First quarter 2013 met coal production in the Company’s U.S. Operations segment increased to 1.7 MMTs compared to 1.5 MMTs in the fourth quarter 2012, despite the impact of two longwall moves during the quarter. Our Canadian and U.K. Operations segment increased met coal production to 1.0 MMTs compared to 0.9 MMTs in the fourth quarter 2012. Metallurgical Coal Cash Cost of Sales Consolidated cash cost of sales for HCC was $120 per MT in the first quarter compared to $124 per MT in the fourth quarter of 2012. In the U.S. Operations segment, the cash cost of sales for HCC decreased to $110 per MT in the first quarter, from $118 per MT in the fourth quarter of 2012. Cash cost of sales for low-vol PCI at the Company’s Brule mine was $122 per MT in the first quarter of 2013, compared with $165 and $159 in the fourth quarter 2012 and first quarter 2012, respectively. The substantial improvement in costs primarily reflects cost reduction initiatives including the conversion of the mine from contractor-operated to owner-operated. The Willow Creek mine reduced its costs in the first quarter as a result of improved productivity, lower spending and lower LCM charges. Cost of sales per ton declined by 51% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 and 65% compared to the first quarter of 2012. However, the mine’s cost structure remains high, and due to the current weak met coal pricing environment the Company has previously announced that it would curtail production at Willow Creek. The Company expects that the ongoing costs at the mine will not be significant. Thermal Coal Sales and Production Sales of thermal coal totaled approximately 0.4 MMT in the first quarter 2013, a decline of approximately 42% from fourth quarter 2012. Thermal coal production was also lower in the first quarter, down 20%, from the fourth quarter, primarily due to difficult mining conditions at the Company’s North River mine. These conditions and the related reduced production resulted in an increase to cash cost of sales of approximately $37 per MT during first quarter 2013 compared to the fourth quarter of 2012. As previously announced, the Company expects to close this mine earlier than previously planned and anticipates this closure to occur before year-end. The Company expects that the performance of the mine will return to more normal levels for the remainder of its life. Other Expenses Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses totaled $30.7 million in the first quarter 2013. Despite the inclusion of $6.8 million in pre-tax expenses primarily related to the proxy contest, SG&A for the quarter was only slightly higher than fourth quarter 2012 SG&A of $28.9 million and was down 15% from the first quarter of 2012. Interest expense for the first quarter 2013 totaled $52.6 million compared to $49.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. Both periods included accelerated amortization of debt expense totaling approximately $6.0 million related to the prepayment of term debt using the proceeds from the fourth quarter of 2012 and first quarter of 2013 debt offerings. Cash interest totaled $40 million in the first quarter, compared to $36 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. Restructuring charges in the first quarter totaled $7.4 million and relate to the previously announced curtailment of operations at Willow Creek in the Canadian and U.K. Operations segment. Capital Expenditures Walter Energy continues to focus on managing capital spending carefully. The Company’s capital expenditures were $34 million for the first quarter of 2013, a decrease of 43% and 72% from fourth quarter of 2012 and first quarter of 2012, respectively. For the full year 2013, the Company has lowered its capital spending estimate to approximately $170 million from the original estimate of $220 million. Liquidity At the end of the first quarter of 2013, available liquidity was $560 million, consisting of cash and cash equivalents of $236 million plus $324 million of availability under the Company’s revolving credit facility. Safety and Stewardship Highlights Walter Energy’s emphasis on safety continues to show results as the majority of locations are achieving lower total reportable injury rates. The Company’s reportable injury rate in the Canadian and U.K. Operations segment has decreased 80% compared to the first quarter of 2012. Company-wide, the total of all injuries (Reportable and Non-reportable) was down 27.3% in the first quarter of 2013 versus the same period in 2012, with Reportable injuries down 34.8% for the quarter. The Total Reportable Incident Rate was down 10% in the first quarter of 2013 compared with the first quarter of 2012. Outlook While the Company does not provide earnings guidance, it does provide directional commentary and observations on key areas of the business. Sales price per ton for met coal is expected to be slightly higher in the second quarter compared with the first quarter, with met coal sales volumes expected to be in line with the first quarter. The Company expects to lower its per ton met coal cost of production and cost of sales in the second quarter of 2013 by more than 5%. Overall earnings, adjusted EBITDA and cash flows are expected to significantly improve in the second quarter compared to the first quarter.

Average Cash Cost of Production per Ton is based on period costs of mining and includes items such as manpower, fuel and other similar production items but excludes depreciation, depletion and post retirement benefits. Average Cash Cost (1) per Ton are non-GAAP financial measures which are not calculated in conformity with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and should be considered supplemental to, and not as a substitute or superior to financial measures calculated in conformity with GAAP. We believe Average Cash Cost per Ton are useful measures of performance and we believe it aids some investors and analysts in comparing us against other companies to help analyze our current and future potential performance. Average Cash Cost of Sales per Ton may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Historically, the Canadian and U.K. operations were not recording tons produced until they were deemed finished goods. We revised this (3) methodology to include all tons mined, no matter if in process or finished, as produced based on a clean coal tonnage equivalent. Our Form 8-K filed on November 5, 2012, includes a reconciliation of production statistics previously presented as compared with the realigned methodology from the Western Coal acquisition date of April 1, 2011 through June 30, 2012.

EBITDA is a financial measure which is not calculated in conformity with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and should be considered supplemental to, and not as a substitute or superior to ^(1) financial measures calculated in conformity with GAAP. We believe that EBITDA is a useful measure as some investors and analysts use EBITDA to compare us against other companies and to help analyze our ability to satisfy principal and interest obligations and capital expenditure needs. EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA further adjusted to exclude restructuring charges, proxy contest expenses and other miscellaneous items. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance in accordance with GAAP, and we believe items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant to a reader in understanding and assessing our financial condition. Therefore, Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation, nor as an alternative to net income, income ^(2) from operations, cash flows from operations or as a measure of our profitability, liquidity or performance under generally accepted accounting principles. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA presents a useful measure of our ability to incur and service debt based on ongoing operations. Furthermore, analogous measures are used by industry analysts to evaluate our operating performance. Investors should be aware that our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. Adjusted net income (loss) is defined as net income (loss) excluding restructuring charges, proxy contest expenses and other miscellaneous items, net of tax. Adjusted net income (loss) is not a measure of financial performance in accordance with generally accepted accounting ^(3) principles, and we believe items excluded from Adjusted net income (loss) are significant to a reader in understanding and assessing our results of operations. Therefore, Adjusted net income (loss) should not be considered in isolation, nor as an alternative to net income (loss) under generally accepted accounting principles. Contact: For Walter Energy Inc.
