NATURAL RESOURCE PARTNERS L.P.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)



1.    Basis of Presentation
Nature of Business
Natural Resource Partners L.P. (the "Partnership") engages principally in the business of owning, managing and leasing a diversified portfolio of mineral properties in the United States, including interests in coal and other natural resources and owns a non-controlling 49% interest in Ciner Wyoming LLC ("Ciner Wyoming"), a producer of natural soda ash. The Partnership is organized into two operating segments further described in Note 7. Segment Information. As used in these Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements, the terms "NRP," "we," "us" and "our" refer to Natural Resource Partners L.P. and its subsidiaries, unless otherwise stated or indicated by context.
Principles of Consolidation and Reporting
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements of the Partnership have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("GAAP") for interim financial information and with Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. In management's opinion, all necessary adjustments to fairly present the Partnership's results of operations, financial position and cash flows for the periods presented have been made and all such adjustments were of a normal and recurring nature. Certain reclassifications have been made to prior period amounts on the Consolidated Balance Sheets, Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income and Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows to conform with current period presentation. These reclassifications had no impact on previously reported net income or cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities.
Recasting of Certain Prior Period Information
As described in Note 4. Discontinued Operations, the Partnership reclassified prior period information for the assets and liabilities, operating results and cash flows of its construction aggregates business as discontinued operations in its consolidated financial statements for all periods presented.
Restricted Cash
Restricted cash at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018 represents the remaining net proceeds from the sale of the Partnership's construction aggregates business that is required to be used to repay debt, make acquisitions or make capital expenditures per the terms of the Partnership's and Opco's debt agreements. In the first quarter of 2019, the Partnership used $86.5 million of restricted cash to repay principal amounts on the Opco Senior Notes, and it intends to use the remaining restricted cash to repay a portion of the 2019 amortization payments on the Opco Senior Notes.
Recently Adopted Accounting Standards
Leases
On January 1, 2019, NRP adopted Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 842, Leases, and all the related amendments (the “new lease standard” and "ASC 842") and recognized assets and liabilities on the balance sheet for the present value of the rights and obligations created by all leases with terms of more than 12 months. This standard does not apply to leases that explore for or use minerals, oil, natural gas and similar non-regenerative resources, including the intangible right to explore for those natural resources and rights to use the land in which those natural resources are contained. The guidance also required disclosures designed to give financial statement users information on the amount, timing and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. The guidance was adopted on January 1, 2019 using a modified retrospective approach.
The Partnership is a lessee in one lease that is accounted for as an operating lease under the new lease standard and the adoption of the new lease standard did not have a material impact to the Partnership's consolidated financial statements. For lease agreements entered into or reassessed after the adoption of Topic 842, the Partnership elected to not combine lease and non-lease components. See Note 3. Leases for more information.

Recently Issued Accounting Standards
Credit Losses
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326). The new standard changes how entities will measure credit losses for most financial assets and certain other instruments that are not measured at fair value through net income. The new standard replaces today's "incurred loss" model with an "expected credit loss" model that requires entities to estimate an expected lifetime credit loss on financial assets, including trade accounts receivable. The guidance is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2019 and is to be adopted using a modified retrospective approach. The Partnership is currently evaluating the provisions of this guidance on its consolidated financial statements.

3.    Leases
Lessee Accounting Under ASC 842
As of March 31, 2019, the Partnership had one operating lease for an office building that is owned by Western Pocahontas Properties Limited Partnership ("WPPLP"), an affiliate of the Partnership as further discussed in Note 13. Related Party Transactions. On January 1, 2019, the Partnership entered into a new lease of the building with a five-year base term and five additional five-year renewal options. Upon adoption and as of March 31, 2019, the Partnership was reasonably certain to exercise all renewal options included in the lease and capitalized the right-of-use asset and corresponding lease liability on its Consolidated Balance Sheets using the present value of the future lease payments over 30 years. The Partnership's right-of-use asset and lease liability included within Other assets and Other non-current liabilities, respectively, on its Consolidated Balance Sheets totaled $3.5 million at both January 1, 2019 and March 31, 2019, respectively. During the three months ended March 31, 2019, the Partnership incurred $0.1 million in total operating lease expenses included in both Operating and maintenance expenses and General and administrative expenses in its Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Income.
The following table details the maturity analysis of the Partnership's operating lease liability and reconciles the undiscounted cash flows to the operating lease liability included in its Consolidated Balance Sheet:

The remaining lease term of the Partnership's operating lease is 29.75 years.
(2)
The present value of the operating lease liability on the Partnership's Consolidated Balance Sheet was calculated using a 13.5% discount rate which represents the Partnership's estimated incremental borrowing rate under the lease. As the Partnership's lease does not provide an implicit rate, the Partnership estimated the incremental borrowing rate at the time the lease was entered into by utilizing the rate of the Partnership's secured debt and adjusting it for factors that reflect the profile of borrowing over the 30-year expected lease term.
Lessor Accounting as a Lease Under ASC 842
The Partnership owns transportation and processing infrastructure related to certain of its coal properties, including loadout and other transportation assets at the Partnership's Macoupin property in the Illinois Basin which is operated by Foresight Energy. The infrastructure at the Macoupin property is leased to a subsidiary of Foresight Energy and is accounted for as an operating lease under ASC 842. The lease with Macoupin expires in January 2108. From the inception of this lease in 2009 through January 2039, the lease provides that the Partnership is entitled to variable lease payments in the form of throughput fees determined based on the amount of coal transported and processed utilizing the Partnership's assets. These fees are included in Transportation and processing services revenues in the Partnership's Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income and were $1.2 million and $1.1 million in the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. After January 2039, the lease provides that the Partnership is entitled to an annual rent of $10 thousand per year in place of the variable lease payments.

Lessor Accounting as a Financing Transaction Under ASC 310, Receivables
The Partnership owns rail loadout and associated infrastructure at the Sugar Camp mine in the Illinois Basin operated by a subsidiary of Foresight Energy LP. The infrastructure at the Sugar Camp mine is leased to a subsidiary of Foresight Energy and is accounted for as a financing transaction (the "Sugar Camp lease"). The Sugar Camp lease expires in 2032 with renewal options for up to 80 additional years. There is no option to purchase the infrastructure at the end of the lease. Minimum payments are $5.0 million per year through the end of the lease term and represent a $1.25 million per quarter deficiency payment. The Partnership is also entitled to variable payments in the form of throughput fees determined based on the amount of coal transported and processed utilizing the Partnership's assets. In the event the Sugar Camp lease is renewed beyond 2032, payments become a fixed $10 thousand per year for the remainder of the renewed term.

4.    Discontinued Operations
In December 2018, the Partnership sold VantaCore Partners LLC, its construction aggregates business, and in July 2016, NRP Oil and Gas LLC ("NRP Oil and Gas") sold its non-operated oil and gas working interest assets. The Partnership's exit from both its construction aggregates business and non-operated oil and gas working interest business represented strategic shifts to reduce debt and focus on its Coal Royalty and Other and Soda Ash business segments. As a result, the Partnership classified the assets and liabilities, operating results and cash flows of these businesses as discontinued operations in its Consolidated Balance Sheets, Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income and Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows for all periods presented.

Capital expenditures related to the Partnership's discontinued operations were $3.4 million during the three months ended March 31, 2018.
5.    Common and Preferred Unit Distributions
The Partnership makes cash distributions to Common and Preferred unitholders on a quarterly basis, subject to approval by the Board of Directors. NRP recognizes both Common and Preferred distributions on the date the distribution is declared.
Common Unit Distributions
Distributions made on the common units and the general partner's general partner ("GP") interest are made on a pro-rata basis in accordance with their relative percentage interests in the Partnership. The general partner is entitled to receive 2% of such distributions. During the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, the Partnership declared and paid a distribution of $0.45 per common unit with respect to the quarter ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Preferred Unit Distributions
Income available to common unitholders and the general partner is reduced by Preferred Unit distributions that accumulated during the period. During the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, the Partnership paid a distribution of $30.00 per Preferred Unit with respect to the quarter ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively. NRP reduced net income attributable to common unitholders and the general partner by $7.5 million during the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively, as a result of accumulated Preferred Unit distributions earned during the period. During the three months ended March 31, 2018, the Partnership redeemed all of the outstanding PIK Units, which resulted in an $8.8 million cash payment during the period.

NATURAL RESOURCE PARTNERS L.P.

6.    Net Income Per Common Unit
Basic net income per common unit is computed by dividing net income, after considering income attributable to non-controlling interest, preferred unitholders and the general partner’s general partner interest, by the weighted average number of common units outstanding. Diluted net income per common unit includes the effect of NRP's Preferred Units and Warrants, if the inclusion of these items is dilutive.
The dilutive effect of the Preferred Units is calculated using the if-converted method. Under the if-converted method, the Preferred Units are assumed to be converted at the beginning of the period, and the resulting common units are included in the denominator of the diluted net income per unit calculation for the period being presented. Distributions declared in the period and undeclared distributions on the Preferred Units that accumulated during the period are added back to the numerator for purposes of the if-converted calculation.
The dilutive effect of the Warrants is calculated using the treasury stock method, which assumes that the proceeds from the exercise of these instruments are used to purchase common units at the average market price for the period. The calculation of the dilutive effect of the Warrants for the three months ended March 31, 2018 includes the net settlement of Warrants to purchase 1.75 million common units with a strike price of $22.81 but did not include the net settlement of Warrants to purchase 2.25 million common units with a strike price of $34.00 because the impact would have been anti-dilutive. The calculation of the dilutive effect of the warrants for the three months ended March 31, 2019, includes both the net settlement of warrants to purchase 1.75 million common units at a strike price of $22.81 and the net settlement of warrants to purchase 2.25 million common units with a strike price of $34.00.
The following table reconciles the numerator and denominator of the basic and diluted net income per common unit computations and calculates basic and diluted net income per common unit:

7.    Segment Information
The Partnership's segments are strategic business units that offer distinct products and services to different customers in different geographies within the U.S. that are managed accordingly. NRP has the following two operating segments:
Coal Royalty and Other—consists primarily of coal royalty and coal-related transportation and processing assets. Other assets include industrial minerals royalty properties, aggregates royalty properties, oil and gas royalty properties and timber. The Partnership's coal reserves are primarily located in Appalachia, the Illinois Basin and the Northern Powder River Basin in the United States. The Partnership's industrial minerals and aggregates properties are located in a number of states across the United States. The Partnership's oil and gas royalty assets are primarily located in Louisiana.
Soda Ash—consists of the Partnership's 49% non-controlling equity interest in Ciner Wyoming, a trona ore mining operation and soda ash refinery in the Green River Basin of Wyoming. Ciner Resources LP, the Partnership's operating partner, mines the trona, processes it into soda ash, and distributes the soda ash both domestically and internationally to the glass and chemicals industries.
In December 2018, the Partnership sold its construction aggregates business which enabled it to further reduce debt and focus on its Coal Royalty and Other and Soda Ash business segments. See Note 4. Discontinued Operations for more information.
Direct segment costs and certain other costs incurred at the corporate level that are identifiable and that benefit the Partnership's segments are allocated to the operating segments accordingly. These allocated costs generally include salaries and benefits, insurance, property taxes, legal and royalty, information technology and shared facilities services and are included in Operating and maintenance expenses on the Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income.
Corporate and Financing includes functional corporate departments that do not earn revenues. Costs incurred by these departments include interest and financing, corporate headquarters and overhead, centralized treasury, legal and accounting and other corporate-level activity not specifically allocated to a segment and are included in General and administrative expenses on the Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income.

The 8.38% and 8.92% Opco Senior Notes also provide that in the event that Opco’s leverage ratio of consolidated indebtedness to consolidated EBITDDA (as defined in the Note Purchase Agreements) exceeds 3.75 to 1.00 at the end of any fiscal quarter, then in addition to all other interest accruing on these notes, additional interest in the amount of 2.00% per annum shall accrue on the notes for the two succeeding quarters and for as long thereafter as the leverage ratio remains above 3.75 to 1.00. Opco has not exceeded the 3.75 to 1.00 ratio at the end of any fiscal quarter through March 31, 2019.
12.    Fair Value Measurements
Fair Value of Financial Assets and Liabilities
The Partnership’s financial assets and liabilities consist of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, contracts receivable, debt, Preferred Units and Warrants. The carrying amounts reported on the Consolidated Balance Sheets for cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash approximate fair value due to their short-term nature. There were no transfers between Level 1, Level 2 or Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy during the three months ended March 31, 2019 or 2018. The Partnership uses available market data and valuation methodologies to estimate the fair value of debt.

(2)
Due to no observable quoted prices on these instruments, the Level 3 fair value is estimated by management using quotations obtained for the NRP 2022 Senior Notes on the closing trading prices near period end.
(3)
The Level 3 fair value approximates the outstanding borrowing amount because the interest rates are variable and reflective of market rates and the terms of the credit facility allow the Partnership to repay this debt at any time without penalty.
(4)
The Level 3 fair value is determined based on the present value of future cash flow projections related to the underlying assets.
NRP has embedded derivatives in the Preferred Units related to certain conversion options, redemption features and the change of control provision that are accounted for separately from the Preferred Units as assets and liabilities at fair value on the Partnership's Consolidated Balance Sheets. Level 3 valuation of the embedded derivatives are based on numerous factors including the likelihood of the event occurring. The embedded derivatives are revalued quarterly and changes in their fair value would be recorded in Other expense, net in the Partnership's Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income. The embedded derivatives had zero value as of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018.
13.    Related Party Transactions
Affiliates of our General Partner
The Partnership’s general partner does not receive any management fee or other compensation for its management of NRP. However, in accordance with the partnership agreement, the general partner and its affiliates are reimbursed for services provided to the Partnership and for expenses incurred on the Partnership’s behalf. Employees of Quintana Minerals Corporation ("QMC") and WPPLP, affiliates of the Partnership, provide their services to manage the Partnership's business. QMC and WPPLP charge the Partnership the portion of their employee salary and benefits costs related to their employee services provided to NRP. These QMC and WPPLP employee management service costs are presented as Operating and maintenance expenses and General and administrative expenses on the Partnership's Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income. NRP also reimburses overhead costs incurred by its affiliates to manage the Partnership's business. These overhead costs include certain rent, information technology, administration of employee benefits and other corporate services incurred by or on behalf of the Partnership’s general partner and its affiliates and are presented as Operating and maintenance expenses and General and administrative on the Partnership's Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income.

Quintana Capital Group GP, Ltd.
Corbin J. Robertson, Jr. is a principal in Quintana Capital Group GP, Ltd. ("Quintana Capital"), which controls several private equity funds focused on investments in the energy business. In connection with the formation of Quintana Capital, the Partnership adopted a formal conflicts policy that establishes the opportunities that will be pursued by the Partnership and those that will be pursued by Quintana Capital. The governance documents of Quintana Capital’s affiliated investment funds reflect the guidelines set forth in the Partnership's conflicts policy. At March 31, 2019, a fund controlled by Quintana Capital owned a substantial interest in Corsa Coal Corp. ("Corsa"), a coal mining company traded on the TSX Venture Exchange that was one of the Partnership’s lessees in Tennessee. During the second quarter of 2018, Corsa assigned its lease with NRP to a third party and is no longer deemed a related party. Coal related revenues from Corsa totaled $0.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018.

15.    Commitments and Contingencies
Legal
NRP is involved, from time to time, in various legal proceedings arising in the ordinary course of business. While the ultimate results of these proceedings cannot be predicted with certainty, Partnership management believes these claims will not have a material effect on the Partnership’s financial position, liquidity or operations. During the first quarter, NRP was also involved in the matters described below.
Anadarko Contingent Consideration Payment Dispute
In January 2013, NRP acquired a non-controlling 48.51% general partner interest in OCI Wyoming, L.P. ("OCI LP") and all of the preferred stock and a portion of the common stock of OCI Wyoming Co. ("OCI Co") (which in turn owned a 1% limited partner interest in OCI LP) from Anadarko Holding Company and its subsidiary, Big Island Trona Company (together, "Anadarko").  The remaining general partner interest in OCI LP and common stock of OCI Co were owned by subsidiaries of OCI Chemical Corporation.
The acquisition agreement provided for additional contingent consideration of up to $50 million to be paid by NRP if certain performance criteria were met at OCI LP as defined in the purchase and sale agreement in any of the years 2013, 2014 or 2015. For those years, NRP paid an aggregate of $11.5 million to Anadarko in full satisfaction of these contingent consideration payment obligations.
  In July 2013, pursuant to a series of transactions in connection with an initial public offering by a subsidiary of OCI Chemical Corporation, the ownership structure in OCI LP was simplified. In connection with such reorganization, NRP exchanged the stock of OCI Co for a limited partner interest in OCI LP. Following the reorganization, NRP's interest in OCI LP increased to 49%, consisting of both limited and general partner interests. The restructuring did not have any impact on the operations, revenues, management or control of OCI LP.

NATURAL RESOURCE PARTNERS L.P.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS—CONTINUED

In July 2017, Anadarko filed a lawsuit against Opco and NRP Trona LLC in the District Court of Harris County, Texas, 157th judicial district. The complaint alleged that the transactions conducted in 2013 triggered an acceleration of NRP's obligation under the purchase agreement with Anadarko to pay additional contingent consideration in full and demanded immediate payment of such amount, together with interest, court costs and attorneys’ fees. NRP does not believe the reorganization transactions triggered an obligation to pay any additional contingent consideration and is vigorously defending this lawsuit. However, the ultimate outcome cannot be predicted with certainty and the Partnership estimates a possible range of loss between $0, if it prevails, and approximately $40 million plus interest, court costs and attorneys’ fees if Anadarko prevails and is awarded the full damages it seeks.
16.    Unit-Based Compensation
The 2017 LTIP awards granted in the first quarter of 2019 and 2018 were valued using the closing price of NRP's units as of the grant date. The grant date fair value of these awards granted during the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 were $5.2 million and $2.2 million, respectively. Total unit-based compensation expense associated with these awards was $0.9 million and $0.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively and is included in General and administrative expenses and Operating and maintenance expenses in the Partnership's Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income. The unamortized cost associated with unvested outstanding awards as of March 31, 2019 is $4.8 million, which is to be recognized over a weighted average period of 2.6 years. The unamortized cost associated with unvested outstanding awards as of December 31, 2018 was $1.2 million.

The following represents material events that have occurred subsequent to March 31, 2019 through the time of the Partnership’s filing of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q with the SEC:
Distributions Declared
In April 2019, the Board of Directors of GP Natural Resource Partners LLC ("the Board") declared a distribution of $0.45 per common unit with respect to the first quarter of 2019. The Board also declared a cash distribution on NRP's Preferred Units with respect to the first quarter of 2019 totaling $7.5 million. In addition, the Board declared a one-time special cash distribution of $0.85 per common unit. The purpose of this special distribution is to cover the common unitholders’ tax liability resulting from the sale of NRP’s construction aggregates business in December 2018. The common unit distributions declared in April will be paid on May 14, 2019 to common unitholders of record on May 7, 2019.

Debt Refinancings
Opco Credit Facility Amendment
In April 2019, the Partnership entered into the Fourth Amendment (the “Fourth Amendment”) to the Opco Credit Facility. The Fourth Amendment extends the term of the Opco Credit Facility until April 2023. Lender commitments under the Opco Credit Facility remain at $100.0 million. The Credit Facility contains financial covenants requiring Opco to maintain:
A leverage ratio of consolidated indebtedness to EBITDDA (as defined in the Opco Credit Facility) not to exceed 4.0x; provided, however, that if the Partnership increases its quarterly distribution to its common unitholders above $0.45 per common unit, the maximum leverage ratio under the Opco Credit Facility will permanently decrease from 4.0x to 3.0x; and
a fixed charge coverage ratio of consolidated EBITDDA to consolidated fixed charges (consisting of consolidated interest expense and consolidated lease expense) of not less than 3.5 to 1.0.
The amended Opco Credit Facility also provides that the Partnership may make a one-time special tax distribution to common unitholders at any time prior to October 18, 2019 without triggering the permanent decrease in the maximum leverage ratio from 4.0x to 3.0x. The purpose of the special distribution is to cover the common unitholders’ tax liability resulting from the Partnership's sale of its construction aggregates business in December 2018. As discussed above, a one-time special distribution of $0.85 per common unit was declared by the Board in April 2019.
Issuance of 2025 Senior Notes and Redemption of 2022 Senior Notes
In April 2019, NRP and NRP Finance issued $300 million aggregate principal amount of 9.125% Senior Notes due 2025 ("2025 Senior Notes") and plans to use the net proceeds and approximately $76 million of cash on hand to fund the redemption of the 2022 Senior Notes. The 2022 Senior Notes will be redeemed on May 11, 2019 at a redemption price equal to 105.250% of the principal amount of the 2022 Senior Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest. The 2025 Senior Notes were issued under an Indenture dated as of April 29, 2019 (the "2025 Indenture"), bear interest at 9.125% per year, are payable semi-annually on June 30 and December 30 beginning December 30, 2019, and mature on June 30, 2025.
NRP and NRP Finance have the option to redeem the 2025 Senior Notes, in whole or in part, at any time on or after October 30, 2021, at the redemption prices (expressed as percentages of principal amount) of 104.563% for the 12-month period beginning October 30, 2021, 102.281% for the 12-month period beginning October 30, 2022, and thereafter at 100.000%, together, in each case, with any accrued and unpaid interest to the date of redemption. Furthermore, before October 30, 2021, NRP may on any one or more occasions redeem up to 35% of the aggregate principal amount of the 2022 Senior Notes with the net proceeds of certain public or private equity offerings at a redemption price of 109.125% of the principal amount of 2025 Senior Notes, plus any accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the date of redemption, if at least 65% of the aggregate principal amount of the 2025 Senior Notes issued under the 2025 Indenture remains outstanding immediately after such redemption and the redemption occurs within 180 days of the closing date of such equity offering. In the event of a change of control, as defined in the 2025 Indenture, the holders of the 2025 Senior Notes may require us to purchase their 2025 Senior Notes at a purchase price equal to 101% of the principal amount of the 2025 Senior Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any. The 2025 Senior Notes were issued at par.
The 2025 Senior Notes are the senior unsecured obligations of NRP and NRP Finance. The 2025 Senior Notes rank equal in right of payment to all existing and future senior unsecured debt of NRP and NRP Finance and senior in right of payment to any of NRP's subordinated debt. The 2025 Senior Notes are effectively subordinated in right of payment to all future secured debt of NRP and NRP Finance to the extent of the value of the collateral securing such indebtedness and are structurally subordinated in right of payment to all existing and future debt and other liabilities of our subsidiaries, including the Opco Credit Facility and each series of Opco’s existing senior notes. None of NRP's subsidiaries guarantee the 2025 Senior Notes.
Financial Statement Impact of Debt Refinancings
The debt refinancings are expected to result in other expense of approximately $29 million which consists of an $18 million premium to redeem the 2022 Senior Notes and of an $11 million write-off of unamortized debt issuance and debt discount costs that will be recorded on the income statement in the second quarter of 2019. In addition, the Partnership incurred approximately $6 million of deferred financing fees that will be recorded on the balance sheet in the second quarter of 2019.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
Adjusted EBITDA
Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that we define as net income (loss) from continuing operations less equity earnings from unconsolidated investment, net income attributable to non-controlling interest and gain on reserve swap; plus total distributions from unconsolidated investment, interest expense, net, debt modification expense, loss on extinguishment of debt, depreciation, depletion and amortization and asset impairments. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income or loss, net income or loss attributable to partners, operating income, cash flows from operating activities or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP as measures of operating performance, liquidity or ability to service debt obligations. There are significant limitations to using Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of performance, including the inability to analyze the effect of certain recurring items that materially affect our net income (loss), the lack of comparability of results of operations of different companies and the different methods of calculating Adjusted EBITDA reported by different companies. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA presented below is not calculated or presented on the same basis as Consolidated EBITDA as defined in our partnership agreement or Consolidated EBITDDA as defined in Opco's debt agreements. For a description of Opco's debt agreements, see Note 11. Debt, Net in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements included herein as well as in "Item 8. Financial Statements and Supplementary Data—Note 13. Debt, Net" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018. Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental performance measure used by our management and by external users of our financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks, research analysts and others to assess the financial performance of our assets without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical cost basis.

Distributable Cash Flow
Distributable cash flow ("DCF") represents net cash provided by (used in) operating activities of continuing operations plus distributions from unconsolidated investment in excess of cumulative earnings, proceeds from sales of assets, including sales of discontinued operations, and return of long-term contract receivables; less maintenance capital expenditures and distributions to non-controlling interest. DCF is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities. DCF may not be calculated the same for us as for other companies. In addition, DCF presented below is not calculated or presented on the same basis as Distributable cash flow as defined in our partnership agreement, which is used as a metric to determine whether we are able to increase quarterly distributions to our common unitholders. DCF is a supplemental liquidity measure used by our management and by external users of our financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks, research analysts and others to assess our ability to make cash distributions and repay debt.
Free Cash Flow
Free cash flow ("FCF") represents net cash provided by (used in) operating activities of continuing operations plus distributions from unconsolidated investment in excess of cumulative earnings and return of long-term contract receivables; less maintenance and expansion capital expenditures, cash flow used in acquisition costs classified as financing activities and distributions to non-controlling interest. FCF is calculated before mandatory debt repayments. FCF is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities. FCF may not be calculated the same for us as for other companies. FCF is a supplemental liquidity measure used by our management and by external users of our financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks, research analysts and others to assess the Partnership's ability to make cash distributions and repay debt.

Executive Overview
We are a diversified natural resource company engaged principally in the business of owning, managing and leasing a diversified portfolio of mineral properties in the United States, including interests in coal and own a non-controlling 49% interest in Ciner Wyoming LLC ("Ciner Wyoming"), a producer of natural soda ash. Our common units trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "NRP". Our business is organized into two operating segments:
Coal Royalty and Other—consists primarily of coal royalty properties and coal-related transportation and processing assets. Other assets include industrial mineral royalty properties, aggregates royalty properties, oil and gas royalty properties and timber. Our coal reserves are primarily located in Appalachia, the Illinois Basin and the Northern Powder River Basin in the United States. Our industrial minerals and aggregates properties are located in a number of states across the United States. Our oil and gas royalty assets are primarily located in Louisiana.
Soda Ash—consists of our 49% non-controlling equity interest in Ciner Wyoming, a trona ore mining operation and soda ash refinery in the Green River Basin of Wyoming. Ciner Resources LP, our operating partner, mines the trona, processes it into soda ash, and distributes the soda ash both domestically and internationally into the glass and chemicals industries.
In December 2018, we sold our construction aggregates business. Our exit from the construction aggregates business enabled us to further reduce debt, focus on our Coal Royalty and Other and Soda Ash business segments. As a result, we have classified the assets and liabilities, operating results and cash flows of the construction aggregates business as discontinued operations in the consolidated financial statements for all periods presented. See Note 4. Discontinued Operations for more information.
Corporate and Financing includes functional corporate departments that do not earn revenues. Costs incurred by these departments include interest and financing, corporate headquarters and overhead, centralized treasury, legal and accounting and other corporate-level activity not specifically allocated to a segment.
In April 2019, we amended our revolving credit facility to extend the maturity date from April 2020 to April 2023 with lender commitments remaining at $100 million. We also issued $300 million principal amount of 9.125% senior unsecured notes due June 2025. We plan to use these net proceeds, together with approximately $76 million of cash on hand to redeem all of the outstanding 10.50% senior unsecured notes in May 2019.
We remain focused on strengthening our balance sheet and maintaining sufficient liquidity to manage our business through periods of volatility in commodity prices. We devote significant amounts of cash each year to make mandatory amortization payments on the Opco Senior Notes as well as to make distributions on our preferred units and common units. Accordingly, preserving the financial flexibility to respond to changes in market conditions while continuing to service our debt and make distributions to unitholders is one of our key objectives.
