Southeastern Asset Management Comments on CONSOL Energy - Oct 14, 2016

CONSOL Energy (NYSE:CNX) (+19%; +1.1%), the natural gas and Appalachian coal company, added to the Fund’s return. CEO Nick Deluliis and the board, led by Chairman Will Thorndike, continued to pursue monetization of assets with the goal of ultimately separating the coal and gas businesses. Following the disposition of its metallurgical coal assets in the first half of the year, CONSOL sold its high-cost Miller Creek and Fola mines to a privately owned buyer who valued them higher than we did. The company also lowered costs across all segments and delivered positive free cash flow once again. Higher coal and gas prices drove strong returns at CONSOL’s holdings in coal master limited partnership (MLP) CNXC and midstream pipeline MLP CNNX. Sales of other companies’ exploration and production assets in Appalachia highlighted the value of CONSOL’s assets.

Southeastern Asset Management Comments on CONSOL - Jul 14, 2016

Also a top contributor, CONSOL (NYSE:CNX) (+43%; +1.7%), the natural gas and Appalachian coal company, continued its positive momentum from the first quarter which saw the addition of new directors, the elevation of Will Thorndike to Chairman, and the sale of the metallurgical coal assets at a price accretive to our value. In 2Q, CONSOL reduced its coal and gas operating costs greater than expected, delivered free cash flow and guided for positive free cash flow, the remainder of the year. The company also had its borrowing base reaffirmed at $2 billion. Recent transactions confirmed the value of CONSOL’s high quality natural gas reserves and acreage. Our capablemanagement partners continue to focus the company on its core natural gas assets while pursuing the monetization of non-core assets, with the goal of separating its coal company from its exploration and production business.

Southeastern Asset Management Comments on CONSOL Energy - Apr 15, 2016

CONSOL Energy (NYSE:CNX) (+43%; +1.1%), the Appalachian natural gas and coal company that was our top detractor in 2015, added meaningfully to first quarter results. Management adjusted to lower commodity prices by adopting significant cost controls and expects positive free cash flow (FCF) in 2016. Early in the quarter, CONSOL announced it was lowering capex by more than 50% from previous guidance. The company also reduced operating expenses, effectively decreasing its Debt/OCF ratio from 3.8 to 3.6. As we continued our constructive dialogue with management regarding asset monetization, CONSOL announced the addition of three new board members, two of whom we suggested. Additionally, Will Thorndike, whom we previously recommended as a board member, replaced Brett Harvey as Chairman. Shortly thereafter, CONSOL sold its Buchanan mine and other met coal assets for $420 million to a private equity-backed firm. The sale was accretive to the value of CONSOL, and management is pursuing additional asset sales.

Longleaf Partners Comments on CONSOL Energy - Jan 22, 2016

Also previously mentioned, CONSOL Energy (NYSE:CNX), the Appalachian coal and natural gas company, was down 76% in 2015 after falling 19% in the fourth quarter as the company missed operating cash flow (OCF) estimates amidst declining coal and gas prices. Management is adjusting to lower commodity prices and adopted significant cost controls under zero-based budgeting while still growing natural gas production. We filed a 13-D during the third quarter to discuss with third parties as well as management and the board a potential monetization or separation of the valuable Marcellus and Utica gas assets. This has been a constructive process since filing, and we appraise these assets at worth demonstrably more than CONSOL’s total equity capitalization. CONSOL’s exploration and production (E&P) business is unique, with low cost reserves given the company’s fee ownership of many acres. CONSOL announced in the fourth quarter that its thermal coal business, which enjoys a low cost position, had contracted for 93% of production for 2016 at a confirmed price of $50-55 per ton, providing near-term downside coal business risk mitigation. Multiple directors recently purchased shares.

David Einhorn Comments on CONSOL Energy - Nov 19, 2015

CONSOL Energy (NYSE:CNX) is an Appalachia-based coal and natural gas production company. From its most recent high of $33.34 on May 8, the shares traded down gradually to $9.80, where they ended the quarter. There was no single moment where the shares fell sharply; it was essentially an orderly collapse. Yes, coal and natural gas prices both fell modestly during the decline. Yes, the company’s effort to bring its coal assets public in a separate vehicle was greeted coolly by the market. Yes, there is an oversupply of natural gas in the region, which has caused local realizations and quarterly earnings to fall below plan. We could have mitigated a portion of our loss by hedging natural gas, but with the price already near a historical low, we made the incorrect decision not to hedge the commodity risk.

However, CONSOL Energy has had plenty of overlooked good news. The company went through a significant cost-cutting effort and cut its capital-spending budget aggressively. In July it reported fantastic drilling results and a significant success at a test well in the Utica Shale. Ordinarily, the market responds favorably to positive drilling news. In the current environment, it has responded more like a child receiving socks as a birthday present, “Gee, just what I always wanted … more, cheap natural gas.” We believe the market has undue concern about the near-term prospects for Appalachian coal and natural gas, leading it to discount the company’s long-term resource value far beyond anything we anticipated.

CONSOL Energy’s financials do not lend themselves to easy analysis. Right now, CONSOL Energyis transitioning from one of the country’s biggest coal producers into a natural gas company.CONSOL Energy’s financial statements combine both operations, which makes it challenging to properly analyze either of them. Gas analysts looking at CONSOL Energy could see a low-cost, growing natural gas business with enormous resources combined with a worthless legacy coal business. Coal analysts aren’t looking at CONSOL Energy – they’re looking for new jobs. Having dissected the financials, we see two businesses with significant upside.

Even at lower commodity prices, capital discipline, cost cutting and much more efficient drilling economics should enable CONSOL Energy to be cash flow breakeven or better from here on out, which is a significant improvement from our original expectations of about $1 billion of cash burn through 2017. In 2016 we expect CONSOL Energy to generate cash while growing its production and proved developed reserves. There are very few midsize energy companies achieving similar success. And yet, CONSOL Energy trades as if it is at the cusp of financial distress. Of course, we wish we were entering the position now rather than at the higher prices we paid.

Longleaf Partners Comments on CONSOL Energy - Oct 28, 2015

One of the noted energy holdings, CONSOL Energy (NYSE:CNX), the Fund’s largest performance detractor, fell 55% in the quarter after disappointing revenue and earnings on weaker-than-expected thermal coal production and negative natural gas differentials versus the New York Mercantile Exchange. Management is adjusting to lower commodity prices with cost controls and took steps to recognize the value of CONSOL’s coal assets by offering shares in the MLP CNX Coal, which generated $200 million in proceeds. We filed a 13-D during the quarter to discuss with third parties as well as management and the board a potential monetization or separation of the valuable Marcellus and Utica gas assets. We believe these assets alone are worth demonstrably more than CONSOL’s total equity capitalization. They are unique, low cost reserves given the company’s fee ownership of many acres. CONSOL is exploring monetization paths for all of its assets, including thermal coal, metallurgical coal, pipelines, and the Baltimore port terminal.

Mason Hawkins Comments on CONSOL Energy - May 28, 2015

CONSOL Energy (CNX) was down 17% on weak natural gas and coal prices. During the quarter the company reduced its capex budget and grew production strongly. The company is uniquely positioned to navigate these prices with low cost reserves and plans to monetize non-core assets, including the thermal coal master limited partnership (MLP) in mid-2015 and the met coal initial public offering (IPO) in late 2015. CONSOL is one of our most discounted holdings, and CEO Nick Deluliis expressed his agreement with a significant share repurchase announcement.

Mason Hawkins Comments on CONSOL Energy - Feb 11, 2015

CONSOL Energy (CNX) dropped 11% in the fourth quarter and for the year in full. CONSOL’s management team took productive action to increase shareholder value despite a difficult coal and gas environment. In the second half of the year, Chairman Brett Harvey and CEO Nick Deluliis completed an IPO (initial public offering) for a midstream MLP (master limited partnership) at metrics above our appraisal. CONSOL most recently announced it would form an MLP to house its thermal coal business and form a subsidiary to own its metallurgical coal properties. These transactions should bring the value of its coal assets forward, improve the transparency into the value of these assets, and provide additional vehicles to access capital markets, while allowing the company to control the assets and realize synergies across its businesses. In addition, CONSOL authorized a share repurchase program for up to approximately 3.6% of the company.
