4th Quarter 2011 overview
Igor Prokudin, CEO of the Company, commented:
“Summarizing the results of 2011, I should note a significant increase in coal production – 8.74 mln. tonnes (an increase of 1.94 mln. Tonnes to 2010). These dynamics allowed KTK to become one of the top-10 largest Russian companies by volume of thermal coal production, and enter the 5th place among the Russian exporters of coal, shipping 6.45 mln. tonnes for export. This is the highest level of sales of coal for export in the Company’s history.
At the end of December 2011 the Company won an auction for a license to mine Bryansk-1, getting an additional 250 mln. tonnes of coal reserves in close proximity to existing infrastructure. We have already started geological investigations explored the area and plan to start developing the fourth section in the future. The new field will subsequently increase the production of the Company. A significant event in 2011 for the KTK was also the start of construction of the second enrichment plant, which is expected to be finished in Q4 2012. The plant will be a unique innovative project for the Russian and possibly international practice. The investment program, which was announced to the participants of IPO in 2010, included the construction of an enrichment plant with capacity of 2 mln. tonnes. As a result the capacity of the second enrichment plant was increased to 4 mln. tonnes.
In addition, we have conducted a large reconstruction of our sorting station Uba: we have built 5 additional railway tracks with contact network, an administrative building, which housed employees of TEK "Meret" and OJSC ”RZD”. This allowed us to meet the technical conditions of OJSC ”RZD” and increase the capacity to 16.7 mln. tonnes of coal per year through this transport corridor. An important strategic direction of the Company's development is to ensure the transportation independence of KTK. Therefore, to purchase additional railroad cars for KTK, “Kuzbasskaya Transportation Company”, an associate of KTK opened a credit line with Gazprombank amounting to RUR 10 bln. for a period of 10 years.
At the beginning of 2012 “Kuzbasskaya Transportation Company”7 had 2,628 high-sided railroad cars at its disposal. Earlier this year additional 500 high-sided rail cars were purchased. It is planned that the needs of KTK in the railroad cars for transportation of coal will be fully met with this additional credit facility.
Reviewing the results of 2011, I believe that management has successfully fulfilled al the tasks. Based on the financial results for 2011 under IFRS, the company's revenue has grown in the rouble equivalent by 69.1%, net profit increased by 145.2% and earnings per share – at 122.2%. EBITDA amounted to USD 133 mln., which meets our internal forecasts. Net debt to EBITDA remains at a low level of 0.68. We met and even exceeded all financial and operational targets of the 2011 plan.
We believe that the execution of commitments, which we made to the investors during the IPO, financial transparency, high standards of corporate governance and systematic work to improve business efficiency, will lead to long-term increase in shareholder value of the Company. Management thanks all KTK’s staff for their united work and support of the management’s initiatives which ensured sustainable development of the Company during the past year.“
KTK’s management will host a conference call for investors and analysts followed by a Q&A session on the day of the results.

Cost of sales
|Commercial, administrative and other costs||-440||-429||2.6%||-1,640||-1,350||21.5%|
|Net profit (loss)||776||449||72.8%||2,018||823||145.2%|
In Q4 2011 the Company’s consolidated revenue reached RUB 7,551 mln., having increased from the previous quarter by 21.7% (Q3 2011: RUB 6,207 mln.) due to the growth of sales volume by 18.9% associated with the seasonal increase in demand for coal, an increase in average sales prices by 4.6% quarter-on-quarter and an increase in the RUB/USD exchange rate, which positively affected the segment of export sales. Total revenue net of VAT and railroad tariffs increased by 24.2%
In the last quarter the revenue in export coal sales segment increased by 20.3% quarter-on-quarter to RUB 5.087 mln. (Q3 2011: RUB 4,227 mln.) as a result a 9.9% growth in export shipment volumes and a 4.6% increase of average sales prices11. Revenue in export coal sales net of VAT and railroad tariffs increased by 25.8%.
In Q4 revenue from the domestic sales of coal produced amounted to RUB 1,423 mln., increasing by 18.3% compared to Q3 (RUB 1,203 mln.). Revenue growth in coal resale segment was 25.7%, increasing from RUB 682 mln. in Q3 to RUB 857 mln. in Q4 2011. Revenue net of VAT and railroad tariffs increased by 22.3%.
In Q4 revenue from other activities amounted to RUB 184 mln., almost doubling compared to Q3 2011 (RUB 95 mln.). This increase was caused by a seasonal growth of heat and electric power sales by Anzhero-Sudzhensk power plant, owned by KTK, and growth in third party coal storage services provided at the facilities of the Company’s retail chain.
During 2011, consolidated revenue increased by 69.1% to RUB 23,939 mln. (2010: RUB 14,160 mln.). Revenue from domestic sales of own coal produced increased by 28.1% whereas export revenue increased by 109.4% year-over-year. The growth of the consolidated revenue was influenced by growth in sales of own coal, related to an increased production, as well as maintaining the volume of resale of coal from third parties and a near two-fold increase in exports.

In Q4 the cost of sales increased by 22.3% and amounted to RUB 6,042 mln. (Q3 2011: RUR 4,942 mln.). The main drivers of the quarterly growth in the cost of sales were transportation expenses and the cost of coal purchased for resale, and an increase in production costs13 driven by growth in production volumes.
In Q4 transportation costs increased by 15.6% to RUB 3,197 mln. (Q3 2011: RUB 2,765 mln.) due to a 18.9% growth in sales volumes. During the quarter the cost of purchased coal for resale increased by 50.5% - from RUB 529 mln. to RUB 796 mln. This was driven by increased coal resale volumes.
In the past quarter production costs12 increased by 24.6% to RUB 1,794 mln. (Q3 2011: RUB 1,440 mln.), and their share in the cost of sales increased from 29.1% to 29.7%. The key indicators, which affect the Company’s production costs, are presented in the table below:
Key coal production indicators
|Coal production, mln. Tonnes||2.57||2.44||5.3%||8.74||6.80||28.5%|
|Stripping, mln. cub. M||18.85||17.99||4.8%||68.1||49.48||37.7%|
|Exploded rock, mln. cub. m14||10.72||7.53||42.4%||32.79||25.43||28.9%|
|Stripping ratio15 (т. / куб. м.)||7.35||7.38||-0.4%||7.80||7.27||7.3%|
|Average stripping transportation distance, km.||2.95||3.08||-4.2%||2.88||2.72||5.9%|
During Q4 2011 the main categories of production costs16 have changed as follows:
In Q4 production cash costs16 per 1 tonne of coal increased by 18.3% to RUR 698 (Q3 2011: RUR 590), primarily due to increases in payroll and fuel prices.
In Q4 depreciation included in the cost of sales increased by 21.4% quarter-on-quarter to RUB 284 mln. Extraction tax and environment payments increased by 27.0% to RUR 80 mln because of production growth and increase in sales prices increase. All other costs, including operating leases, electric power and others, increased by 89.3 % to RUR 159 mln. The main drivers of their growth were: an increase of electric power consumption due to the winter season and use of power by the enrichment plant.
Increase the balance of coal stock amounted to RUB 162 mln. compared to an increase of RUB 104 mln. in Q3 2011 compared to Q2. This increase was due to increased purchases of coal to create a coal reserve in 2012, as well as due to less-than-planned volume of retail coal sales in December 201 caused by a relatively warm weather.
As a result of the above factors, the quarterly gross profit increased by 19.1% and amounted to RUB 1,507 mln. (Q3 2011: RUB 1,265 mln.).
The full 2011 cost of sales increases by 69.4% year-on-year to RUB 19,404 mln. (2010: RUB 11,457 mln.). The cost of coal transportation increased by 95.4% to RUB 10,623 mln. (2010: RUB 5,437 mln.). This item was influenced by the 24.8% growth of sales volumes and an increase of the export share in the total sales volume from 43.8% in 2011 to 60.5% in 2010, as well as by an increase of railroad tariffs. Cost of purchases of coal from third parties during 2011 increased by 37.2% from RUB 1,595 mln. to RUB 2,189 mln., before changes in coal stock.
The last year was also characterized by a growth of production cash costs17, that increased by 28.1% to RUB 652 per tonne (2010: RUB 509). Cash costs increased due to growth of personnel costs, an increase in the volume of stripping services performed by contractors by more than three times and a rise of their costs due to increase in diesel fuel prices. In addition, the increase in cash costs was influenced by the growth of coal sorting by 35.6% and change in mining and geological conditions, which pushed up rock mass explosion and coal transportation costs, as well as expenses for rock transporting and equipment repair and maintenance. Gross profit for 2011 increased by 67.8% year-on-year and amounted to RUB 4,535 mln. (2010: RUB 2,703 mln).
Distribution, administrative and other operation costs
Distribution, administrative and other costs in Q4 increased by 2.6% to RUB 440 mln. (Q3 2011: RUB 429 mln.) due to growth of personnel costs and other expenses. The growth of distribution and administrative personnel costs, which accounted for 61.5% quarter-on-quarter, was caused by a by a general wage increase in October 2011 and bonus payment for long service in December 2011. Property tax contributions remained stable at the level of Q3 2011 and amounted to RUB 37 mln. Cost of materials in Q4 2011 reached RUB 23 mln., an increase by 91.7% (Q3 2011: RUB 12 mln.) and was driven by growth in sales during Q4.
As for the full 2011 results, distribution, administrative and other costs have increased by 21.5% year-on-year from RUB 1,350 mln. to RUB 1,640 mln. Costs of distribution and administrative personnel increased by 32.2% to RUB 812 mln. (2010: RUB 614 mln.) due to 10.0% salary indexation in the first half and 5.0% in the second half of 2011, and also due to increase of personnel numbers caused by the growth of production and sales, and an unplanned rise in salaries for certain categories of employees. Expenses on services increased by 3.0% to RUB 413 mln. Property tax contributions and other taxes increased by 18.7% and reached RUB 146 mln. The growth of distribution and administrative expenses relates to an increase in sales volumes. While there is a direct relationship in respect of distribution costs, there is a correlation in respect of administrative expenses, too albeit on a smaller scale.
Operating profit, EBITDA and net profit
In Q4 operating profit increased by 27.6% quarter-on-quarter, from RUB 836 mln. to RUB 1,067 mln. EBITDA increased by 26.2% to RUB 1,360 mln.

For 2011, the volume of investments in fixed and intangible assets amounted to RUB 2,581 mln., increasing by 3.3% compared to the previous year (2010: RUB 2,499 mln). All funds have been spent in accordance with the long-term investment program of the Company, which in 2011 included the construction of the second enrichment plant, acquisition of large mining and transport equipment, including 22 open-pit BelAZ mining trucks, loaders, dozers, shovels, a drilling rig, and others.
Current trading and outlook for Q1 2012 and FY 2012
In Q1 2012 the Company plans to decrease production volumes by 12.0-13.0% quarter-on-quarter due to seasonal factors, however they will still be 20.0-25.0% higher compared to the level of Q1 2011. The decrease in production will lead to an increase of stripping ratio by 19.0-20.0% which can negatively impact production cash costs per 1 tonne of coal. At the same time, management expects a growth in export coal prices.
Management positively views the Company’s development perspectives in Q1 2012 and its outlook for the entire 2012. Based on concluded contracts for coal shipments to domestic and export markets, and planed increases in coal extraction and enrichment, management expects an increase of 2012 revenue, EBITDA and net profit compared to the results of 2011.
