About AHGP

Alliance Holdings GP, L.P. (AHGP) is a limited partnership formed in November 2005 to own and control Alliance Resource Management GP, LLC, the managing general partner of Alliance Resource Partners, L.P. (ARLP), a publicly traded limited partnership engaged in the production and marketing of coal to major U.S. utilities and industrial users.

AHGP owns certain general partner interests, all of the incentive distribution rights and 87,188,338 common units in ARLP.

The primary business objective of AHGP is to increase its cash distributions to unitholders by actively helping ARLP in executing its business strategy. ARLP's business strategy is to create sustainable, capital-efficient growth in distributable cash flow to maximize its distribution to its unitholders. To accomplish this, AHGP will assist ARLP in identifying, evaluating and pursuing growth strategies, and could include helping ARLP to:

  • Expand its operations by adding and developing mines and coal reserves in existing, adjacent or neighboring properties;
  • Develop new mining complexes in locations with attractive market conditions;
  • Continue to make productivity improvements in order to be a safe, low-cost producer in each region in which it operates;
  • Strengthen its position with existing and future customers by offering a broad range of coal qualities, transportation alternatives and customized services.

In the future, AHGP also may support the growth of ARLP through the use of capital resources, which could involve loans or capital contributions to ARLP to provide funding for the acquisition of a business or asset or for an internal growth project.

The principal executive offices of AHGP are located at 1717 S. Boulder Ave., Tulsa, Oklahoma 74119.

On February 22nd, 2018, the Board of Directors of ARLP’s general partner and AHGP’s Board of Directors approved a simplification agreement for AHGP to become a wholly owned subsidiary of ARLP and for all of the ARLP common units held by AHGP and its subsidiaries to be distributed to the unitholders of AHGP in exchange for their AHGP common units.
