NACCO INDUSTRIES, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
SEPTEMBER 30, 2016
(In thousands, except as noted and per share amounts)

NOTE 1—Basis of Presentation

The accompanying Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements include the accounts of NACCO Industries, Inc. (the “parent company” or “NACCO”) and its wholly owned subsidiaries (collectively, “NACCO Industries, Inc. and Subsidiaries” or the “Company”). Intercompany accounts and transactions are eliminated in consolidation. The Company's subsidiaries operate in the following principal industries: mining, small appliances and specialty retail. The Company manages its subsidiaries primarily by industry.
 
The North American Coal Corporation and its affiliated companies (collectively, “NACoal”) mine coal primarily for use in power generation and provide selected value-added mining services for other natural resources companies. Hamilton Beach Brands, Inc. (“HBB”) is a leading designer, marketer and distributor of small electric household and specialty housewares appliances, as well as commercial products for restaurants, bars and hotels. The Kitchen Collection, LLC (“KC”) is a national specialty retailer of kitchenware in outlet and traditional malls throughout the United States.

These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("U.S. GAAP") for interim financial information and the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position of the Company at September 30, 2016 and the results of its operations, comprehensive income (loss), cash flows and changes in equity for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 have been included. These Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015.

The balance sheet at December 31, 2015 has been derived from the audited financial statements at that date but does not include all of the information or notes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements.

Operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the remainder of the year ending December 31, 2016. The HBB and KC businesses are seasonal and a majority of revenues and operating profit typically occurs in the second half of the calendar year when sales of small electric household appliances to retailers and consumers increase significantly for the fall holiday-selling season. For further information regarding seasonality of these businesses, refer to the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015.

Certain amounts in the prior periods' Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been reclassified to
conform to the current period's presentation.

In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-03, "Interest - Imputation of Interest (Subtopic 835-30): Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs," which requires that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of that debt liability, consistent with debt discounts. ASU 2015-03 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016. Early application is permitted. In August 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-15, "Interest—Imputation of Interest (Subtopic 835-30): Presentation and Subsequent Measurement of Debt Issuance Costs Associated with Line-of-Credit Arrangements—Amendments to SEC Paragraphs Pursuant to Staff Announcement at June 18, 2015 EITF Meeting (SEC Update)."  ASU 2015-15 amends Subtopic 835-30 to include that the SEC would not object to the deferral and presentation of debt issuance costs as an asset and subsequent amortization of debt issuance costs over the term of the line-of-credit arrangement, whether or not there are any outstanding borrowings on the line-of-credit arrangement. This guidance is effective for fiscal years (and interim reporting periods within fiscal years) beginning after December 15, 2015. The adoption of this guidance did not have a material effect on the Company's financial position, results of operations, cash flows or related disclosures.


7


In July 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-11, "Inventory - Simplifying the Measurement of Inventory," which requires that inventory be measured at lower of cost or net realizable value. ASU 2015-11 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The adoption of this guidance did not have a material effect on the Company's financial position, results of operations, cash flows and related disclosures.  

Accounting Standards Not Yet Adopted

In May 2014, the FASB codified in ASC 606, "Revenue Recognition - Revenue from Contracts with Customers," which supersedes most current revenue recognition guidance, including industry-specific guidance, and requires an entity to recognize revenue in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for transferring goods or services to customers and provide additional disclosures. As amended, the effective date for public entities is annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017 and interim periods therein. Early adoption is not permitted before the first quarter of fiscal year 2017. As such, the Company will be required to adopt the standard in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018. ASC 606 may be adopted either using a full retrospective approach, in which the standard is applied to all of the periods presented, or a modified retrospective approach. The Company has developed a project plan to evaluate how ASC 606 will affect the Company's financial position, results of operations, cash flows and related disclosures.  The Company is currently evaluating which transition method to use.

In January 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-01, "Financial Instruments - Overall (Subtopic 825-10): Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities," which modifies how entities measure equity investments and present changes in the fair value of financial liabilities; simplifies the impairment assessment of equity investments without readily determinable fair values by requiring a qualitative assessment to identify impairment; changes presentation and disclosure requirements; and clarifies that an entity should evaluate the need for a valuation allowance on a deferred tax asset related to available-for-sale securities in combination with the entity’s other deferred tax assets. ASU 2016-01 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is evaluating the impact that this new guidance will have on the Company’s financial position, results of operations, cash flows and related disclosures.  

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842)," which requires an entity to recognize assets and liabilities for the rights and obligations created by leased assets. ASU 2016-02 is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018, and early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating how and to what extent ASU 2016-02 will affect the Company's financial position, results of operations, cash flows and related disclosures.

NOTE 4—Stockholders' Equity

Stock Repurchase Program: On May 10, 2016, the Company's Board of Directors approved a stock repurchase program (the "2016 Stock Repurchase Program") providing for the purchase of up to $50 million of the Company's Class A Common Stock outstanding through December 31, 2017. The Company’s previous $60 million stock repurchase program, announced in December 2013, was completed in October 2015. The timing and amount of any repurchases under the 2016 Stock Repurchase Program are determined at the discretion of the Company's management based on a number of factors, including the availability of capital, other capital allocation alternatives and market conditions for the Company's Class A Common Stock. The 2016 Stock Repurchase Program does not require the Company to acquire any specific number of shares. It may be

8


modified, suspended, extended or terminated by the Company at any time without prior notice and may be executed through open market purchases, privately negotiated transactions or otherwise. All or part of the repurchases under the 2016 Stock Repurchase Program may be implemented under a Rule 10b5-1 trading plan, which would allow repurchases under pre-set terms at times when the Company might otherwise be prevented from doing so.
During the three months ended September 30, 2016 and September 30, 2015, the Company repurchased 38,766 and 134,186 shares of Class A Common Stock for an aggregate purchase price of $2.2 million and $7.2 million at a weighted average purchase price of $57.20 and $53.95 per share, respectively. During the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and September 30, 2015, the Company repurchased 109,261 and 426,909 shares of Class A Common Stock for an aggregate purchase price of $6.0 million and $23.2 million at a weighted average purchase price of $55.32 and $54.46 per share, respectively.

Bellaire Corporation (“Bellaire”) is a non-operating subsidiary of the Company with legacy liabilities relating to closed mining operations, primarily former Eastern U.S. underground coal mining operations. In connection with Bellaire's normal permit renewal with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection ("DEP"), Bellaire established a $5.0 million mine water treatment trust (the "Mine Water Treatment Trust") to provide a financial assurance mechanism for the long-term treatment of post-mining discharges. Bellaire's Mine Water Treatment Trust invests in available-for-sale securities that are reported at fair value based upon quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets; therefore, they are classified as Level 1 within the fair value hierarchy.

The Company uses significant other observable inputs to value derivative instruments used to hedge foreign currency and interest rate risk; therefore, they are classified within Level 2 of the valuation hierarchy. The fair value for these contracts is determined based on exchange rates and interest rates, respectively.

There were no transfers into or out of Levels 1, 2 or 3 during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015.


10


Nonrecurring Fair Value Measurements: Centennial Natural Resources ("Centennial") ceased coal production in the fourth quarter of 2015 and the Company began actively marketing Centennial's mine machinery and equipment. The Company classified these assets as held for sale during the fourth quarter of 2015 when management approved and committed to a formal plan of sale. The coal land and real estate did not meet the held-for-sale criteria and remained within property, plant and equipment as a long-lived asset.

As a result of various unfavorable conditions, including but not limited to weakness in the U.S. and global coal markets and certain asset-specific factors, the Company determined the carrying value of Centennial's coal land and real estate were not recoverable. The Company also conducted a review of the carrying value of Centennial's mine machinery and equipment classified as assets held for sale. The fair values of these assets were calculated using a combination of a market and income approach and reduced the carrying value of coal land and real estate to zero and assets held for sale to approximately $5.0 million. The Company recognized an aggregate impairment charge of $17.4 million during the third quarter of 2016. The asset impairment charge was recorded as "Centennial asset impairment charge" in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and relates exclusively to the NACoal segment.

Other Fair Value Measurement Disclosures: The carrying amounts of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable and accounts payable approximate fair value due to the short-term nature of these instruments. Revolving credit agreements and long-term debt are recorded at carrying value in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. The fair values of revolving credit agreements and long-term debt, excluding capital leases, were determined using current rates offered for similar obligations taking into account subsidiary credit risk, which is Level 2 as defined in the fair value hierarchy. At September 30, 2016, December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2015, both the fair value and the book value of the Company's revolving credit agreements and long-term debt, excluding capital leases, was $128.3 million, $159.8 million and $163.5 million, respectively.

NOTE 6—Unconsolidated Subsidiaries

NACoal has two consolidated mining operations: Mississippi Lignite Mining Company (“MLMC”) and Centennial. Centennial ceased coal production in the fourth quarter of 2015 but wind-down and reclamation activities are continuing. In addition, NACoal provides dragline mining services for independently owned limerock quarries in Florida. NACoal also has the following wholly owned unconsolidated subsidiaries that each meet the definition of a variable interest entity and are accounted for using the equity method:

Bisti Fuels Company, LLC ("Bisti")
Caddo Creek Resources Company, LLC (“Caddo Creek”)
Camino Real Fuels, LLC (“Camino Real”)
The Coteau Properties Company ("Coteau")
Coyote Creek Mining Company, LLC (“Coyote Creek”)
Demery Resources Company, LLC (“Demery”)
The Falkirk Mining Company ("Falkirk")
Liberty Fuels Company, LLC (“Liberty”)
NoDak Energy Services, LLC ("NoDak")
The Sabine Mining Company ("Sabine")

The unconsolidated subsidiaries, with the exception of NoDak (collectively, the "Unconsolidated Mines"), were formed to develop, construct and/or operate surface coal mines under long-term contracts and are capitalized primarily with debt financing provided by or supported by their respective customers, and without recourse to NACCO and NACoal. The contracts with the customers of the unconsolidated subsidiaries provide for reimbursement to the company at a price based on actual costs plus an agreed upon pre-tax profit per ton of coal sold, actual costs plus an agreed upon fee per btu of heating value delivered or actual costs plus a management fee. The fees earned at each mine adjust over time in line with various indices which reflect general inflation rates. Although NACoal owns 100% of the equity and manages the daily operations of these entities, the Company has determined that the equity capital provided by NACoal is not sufficient to adequately finance the ongoing activities or absorb any expected losses without additional support from the customers. The customers have a controlling financial interest and have the power to direct the activities that most significantly affect the economic performance of the entities. As a result, NACoal is not the primary beneficiary and, therefore, does not consolidate these entities' financial positions or results of operations. The income taxes resulting from the operations of the Unconsolidated Mines are solely the responsibility of the Company. The pre-tax income from the Unconsolidated Mines is reported on the line “Earnings of unconsolidated mines” in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations, with related income taxes included in the provision for income taxes. The Company has included the pre-tax earnings of the Unconsolidated Mines above operating profit because they are an integral component of the Company's business and operating results. The pre-tax income

11


from NoDak is reported on the line "(Income) loss from other unconsolidated affiliates" in the "Other (income) expense" section of the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations, with the related income taxes included in the provision for income taxes.

Coteau, Falkirk, Sabine, Liberty and Coyote Creek supply lignite coal for power generation. Demery and Caddo Creek supply lignite coal for the production of activated carbon. Camino Real supplies and Bisti will supply sub-bituminous coal for power generation. NoDak operates and maintains a coal processing facility.

The investments in the Unconsolidated Mines and related tax positions totaled $34.0 million, $24.6 million and $25.9 million at September 30, 2016, December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2015, respectively. These amounts are included on the line “Other non-current assets” in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. The Company's maximum risk of loss relating to these entities is limited to its invested capital, which was $5.3 million, $4.0 million and $3.9 million at September 30, 2016, December 31, 2015, and September 30, 2015, respectively, and a $2.5 million loan receivable from Navajo Transitional Energy Company, LLC, which is Bisti's customer, at September 30, 2016. The loan receivable is included in "Other non-current assets."

NACoal is a party to certain guarantees related to Coyote Creek. Under certain circumstances of default or termination of Coyote Creek’s Lignite Sales Agreement (“LSA”), NACoal would be obligated for payment of a "make-whole" amount to Coyote Creek’s third party lenders. The “make-whole” amount is based on the excess, if any, of the discounted value of the remaining scheduled debt payments over the principal amount. In addition, in the event Coyote Creek’s LSA is terminated on or after January 1, 2024 by Coyote Creek’s customers, NACoal is obligated to purchase Coyote Creek’s dragline and rolling stock for the then net book value of those assets. To date, no payments have been required from NACoal since the inception of these guarantees. The Company believes that the likelihood of NACoal’s future performance under the guarantees is remote, and no amounts related to these guarantees have been recorded.

NOTE 7—Contingencies

Various legal and regulatory proceedings and claims have been or may be asserted against NACCO and certain subsidiaries relating to the conduct of their businesses, including product liability, patent infringement, asbestos related claims, environmental and other claims. These proceedings and claims are incidental to the ordinary course of business of the Company. Management believes that it has meritorious defenses and will vigorously defend the Company in these actions. Any costs that management estimates will be paid as a result of these claims are accrued when the liability is considered probable and the amount can be reasonably estimated.  If a range of amounts can be reasonably estimated and no amount within the range is a better estimate than any other amount, then the minimum of the range is accrued. The Company does not accrue liabilities when the likelihood that the liability has been incurred is probable but the amount cannot be reasonably estimated or when the liability is believed to be only reasonably possible or remote. For contingencies where an unfavorable outcome is probable or reasonably possible and which are material, the Company discloses the nature of the contingency and, in some circumstances, an estimate of the possible loss. 

These matters are subject to inherent uncertainties, and unfavorable rulings could occur. If an unfavorable ruling were to occur, there exists the possibility of an adverse impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows of the period in which the ruling occurs, or in future periods.

Environmental matters

HBB is investigating or remediating historical environmental contamination at some current and former sites operated by HBB or by businesses it acquired. Based on the current stage of the investigation or remediation at each known site, HBB estimates the total investigation and remediation costs and the period of assessment and remediation activity required for each site. The estimate of future investigation and remediation costs is primarily based on variables associated with site clean-up, including, but not limited to, physical characteristics of the site, the nature and extent of the contamination and applicable regulatory programs and remediation standards. No assessment can fully characterize all subsurface conditions at a site. There is no assurance that additional assessment and remediation efforts will not result in adjustments to estimated remediation costs or the time frame for remediation at these sites.

HBB's estimates of investigation and remediation costs may change if it discovers contamination at additional sites or additional contamination at known sites, if the effectiveness of its current remediation efforts change, if applicable federal or state regulations change or if HBB's estimate of the time required to remediate the sites changes. HBB's revised estimates may differ materially from original estimates.

At September 30, 2016, December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2015, HBB had accrued undiscounted obligations of $9.0 million, $9.1 million and $8.5 million, respectively, for environmental investigation and remediation activities. In addition, HBB estimates that it is reasonably possible that it may incur additional expenses in the range of zero to $5.3 million related to the environmental investigation and remediation at these sites.

NOTE 8—Product Warranties

HBB provides a standard warranty to consumers for all of its products. The specific terms and conditions of those warranties vary depending upon the product brand. In general, if a product is returned under warranty, a refund is provided to the consumer by HBB's customer, the retailer. Generally, the retailer returns those products to HBB for a credit. The Company estimates the costs which may be incurred under its standard warranty programs and records a liability for such costs at the time product revenue is recognized.

The Company periodically assesses the adequacy of its recorded warranty liabilities and adjusts the amounts as necessary. Factors that affect the Company's warranty liability include the number of units sold, historical and anticipated rates of warranty claims and the cost per claim.

Changes in the Company's current and long-term recorded warranty liability are as follows:

NOTE 9—Income Taxes

The income tax provision includes U.S. federal, state and local, and foreign income taxes and is based on the application of a forecasted annual income tax rate applied to the current quarter's year-to-date pre-tax income or loss. In determining the estimated annual effective income tax rate, the Company analyzes various factors, including projections of the Company's annual earnings, taxing jurisdictions in which the earnings will be generated, the impact of state and local income taxes, the Company's ability to use tax credits and net operating loss carryforwards, and available tax planning alternatives. Discrete items, including the effect of changes in tax laws, tax rates and certain circumstances with respect to valuation allowances or other unusual or non-recurring tax adjustments are reflected in the period in which they occur as an addition to, or reduction from, the income tax provision, rather than included in the estimated effective annual income tax rate. The Company's effective income tax rate is affected by the benefit of percentage depletion.

In the nine months ended September 30, 2016, the Company recorded an income tax benefit of $2.3 million as a result of the reversal of an uncertain tax position recorded as part of the Centennial acquisition.  The Company also reversed a corresponding indemnification receivable related to the uncertain tax position that resulted in $2.2 million of other expense, included on the line "Other, net, including interest income," in the nine months ended September 30, 2016.

NOTE 10—Retirement Benefit Plans

The Company maintains various defined benefit pension plans that provide benefits based on years of service and average compensation during certain periods. The Company's policy is to make contributions to fund these plans within the range allowed by applicable regulations. Plan assets consist primarily of publicly traded stocks and government and corporate bonds. Pension benefits were frozen for all employees as of December 31, 2013. All eligible employees of the Company, including employees whose pension benefits are frozen, receive retirement benefits under defined contribution retirement plans.

The Company also maintains postretirement health care plans which provide benefits to eligible retired employees. All health care plans of the Company have a cap on the Company's share of the costs. These plans have no assets. Under the Company's current policy, plan benefits are funded at the time they are due to participants.

The components of pension and postretirement health care expense (income) are set forth below:

Item 2. - Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
(Dollars in thousands, except as noted and per share data)

NACCO Industries, Inc. (the “parent company” or “NACCO”) and its wholly owned subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company”) operate in the following principal industries: mining, small appliances and specialty retail. Results of operations and financial condition are discussed separately by subsidiary, which corresponds with the industry groupings.

The North American Coal Corporation and its affiliated coal companies (collectively, “NACoal”) mine coal primarily for use in power generation and provide selected value-added mining services for other natural resources companies. Hamilton Beach Brands, Inc. (“HBB”) is a leading designer, marketer and distributor of small electric household and specialty housewares appliances, as well as commercial products for restaurants, bars and hotels. The Kitchen Collection, LLC (“KC”) is a national specialty retailer of kitchenware in outlet and traditional malls throughout the United States.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES
Please refer to the discussion of the Company's Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates as disclosed on pages 36 through 39 in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015. The Company's Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates have not materially changed since December 31, 2015.

THE NORTH AMERICAN COAL CORPORATION

NACoal mines coal primarily for use in power generation and provides selected value-added mining services for other natural resources companies. Coal is surface mined from NACoal's developed mines in North Dakota, Texas, Mississippi and Louisiana. Total coal reserves approximate 2.0 billion tons with approximately 1.1 billion tons committed to customers pursuant to long-term contracts.

NACoal has two consolidated mining operations: Mississippi Lignite Mining Company (“MLMC”) and Centennial Natural Resources ("Centennial"). Centennial ceased coal production in the fourth quarter of 2015 but wind-down and reclamation activities are continuing. In addition, NACoal provides dragline mining services for independently owned limerock quarries in Florida. NACoal also has the following wholly owned unconsolidated subsidiaries that each meet the definition of a variable interest entity and are accounted for using the equity method:

Bisti Fuels Company, LLC ("Bisti")
Caddo Creek Resources Company, LLC (“Caddo Creek”)
Camino Real Fuels, LLC (“Camino Real”)
The Coteau Properties Company ("Coteau")
Coyote Creek Mining Company, LLC (“Coyote Creek”)
Demery Resources Company, LLC (“Demery”)
The Falkirk Mining Company ("Falkirk")
Liberty Fuels Company, LLC (“Liberty”)
NoDak Energy Services, LLC ("NoDak")
The Sabine Mining Company ("Sabine")

The unconsolidated subsidiaries, with the exception of NoDak, were formed to develop, construct and/or operate surface coal mines under long-term contracts and are capitalized primarily with debt financing provided by or supported by their respective customers, and without recourse to NACCO and NACoal. The contracts with the customers of the unconsolidated subsidiaries provide for reimbursement to the company at a price based on actual costs plus an agreed upon pre-tax profit per ton of coal sold, actual costs plus an agreed upon fee per btu of heating value delivered or actual costs plus a management fee. The fees earned at each mine adjust over time in line with various indices which reflect general inflation rates. 

Coteau, Falkirk, Sabine, Liberty and Coyote Creek supply lignite coal for power generation. Demery and Caddo Creek supply lignite coal for the production of activated carbon. Camino Real supplies and Bisti will supply sub-bituminous coal for power generation. NoDak operates and maintains a coal processing facility.

Coteau, Falkirk and Sabine were developed between 1974 and 1984. Demery commenced delivering coal in 2012. Caddo Creek commenced delivering coal in late 2014. Camino Real commenced delivering coal in October 2015, and expects to mine approximately 2.0 million tons of coal annually when at full production. Coyote Creek began delivering coal in the second quarter of 2016 and expects to deliver approximately 2.5 million tons of coal annually, when at full production.

16



Liberty began delivering coal to its customer in July 2016 for facility testing and commissioning. Production levels at Liberty are expected to increase gradually and to build to full production of approximately 4.5 million tons of coal annually beginning in 2022, although the timing of future deliveries will be affected by the timing of the Kemper County Energy Facility reaching full generation capacity.

Bisti anticipates that it will replace an existing contract miner at an existing mine on approximately January 1, 2017, after which it will make annual coal deliveries of between 5.0 million to 6.0 million tons when the customer's power plant is operating at expected levels.

Third Quarter of 2016 Compared with Third Quarter of 2015

The following table identifies the components of change in revenues for the third quarter of 2016 compared with the third quarter of 2015:
 
Revenues

(8,832
)

)

(165
)
2016
$
32,402


Revenues decreased in the third quarter of 2016 compared with the third quarter of 2015 primarily due to the cessation of coal production at Centennial during the fourth quarter of 2015 and a decrease in royalty and other income. Increased revenues at the limerock mining operations from an increase in limerock yards delivered was more than offset by a reduction in revenue at MLMC due to a lower index-based coal sales price in the third quarter of 2016 compared with 2015 as a result of a decline in diesel prices.

2016
$
(10,912
)
NACoal reported an operating loss of $10.9 million in the third quarter of 2016 primarily due to the recognition of an asset impairment charge at Centennial. See Note 5 for further discussion of this charge. A decrease in other consolidated mining operations and a reduction in royalty and other income also contributed to the change in operating loss. These items were partially offset by the absence of a charge related to an increase in Centennial's asset retirement obligation, an improvement in Centennial's operating results in the third quarter of 2016 when compared with 2015, as well as an increase in earnings of unconsolidated mines as newer mines began or increased production. Centennial's operating loss declined as a result of the cessation of coal production at Centennial during the fourth quarter of 2015, which resulted in substantially lower operating costs to conduct the remaining day-to-day operations of selling equipment, maintaining permits and completing mine reclamation.
At the other consolidated mining operations, operating results at MLMC during the third quarter of 2016 were lower compared with 2015 due to the decrease in revenue in the third quarter of 2016 and an increase in cost of sales, which includes both production costs and changes in inventory. While production costs were comparable between periods, MLMC sold more tons than it produced during the third quarter of 2016, resulting in the recognition of a portion of production costs previously capitalized into inventory. The decline at MLMC was partially offset by an increase in limerock yards delivered at the limerock mining operations during the third quarter of 2016 compared with 2015.

NACoal recognized a net loss of $12.7 million in the third quarter of 2016 compared with a net loss of $5.3 million in the third quarter of 2015 primarily due to the factors affecting operating loss.

First Nine Months of 2016 Compared with First Nine Months of 2015

Revenues decreased in the first nine months of 2016 compared with the first nine months of 2015 primarily due to a decrease in revenues at Centennial as a result of the cessation of coal production during the fourth quarter of 2015. The decline in revenue at the other consolidated mining operations was due to a reduction in tons sold at MLMC as a result of an increase in outage days at the customer's power plant in the first nine months of 2016 and a reduction in the price per ton sold due to a lower index-based coal sales price as a result of a decline in diesel prices during 2015 and 2016. The decline was partially offset by an increase in revenues at the limerock mining operations from an increase in limerock yards delivered.

2016
$
3,653

NACoal reported operating profit of $3.7 million in the first nine months of 2016 compared with operating profit of $3.6 million in the first nine months of 2015. Operating profit was favorably impacted by the cessation of coal production at Centennial during the fourth quarter of 2015, which resulted in substantially lower operating costs to conduct the remaining day-to-day operations, and the absence of a charge related to an increase in Centennial's asset retirement obligation. An increase in earnings of unconsolidated mines as newer mines began or increased production also contributed to the increase in operating profit.
These items were largely offset by an asset impairment charge at Centennial and an increase in Other selling, general and administrative expenses, primarily due to higher employee-related costs, as well as reductions in royalty and other income and other consolidated mining operations. See Note 5 for further discussion of the asset impairment charge. At the other consolidated mining operations, operating results at MLMC were lower during the first nine months of 2016 compared with 2015 primarily due to a reduction in tons sold as a result of an increase in outage days at the customer's power plant. The decline at MLMC was partially offset by an increase in limerock yards delivered at the limerock mining operations during the first nine months of 2016 compared with 2015.
NACoal recognized a net loss of $1.1 million in the first nine months of 2016 compared with net income of $3.4 million in the first nine months of 2015. The change in results was due to a decrease in other income, as dividend income of $0.9 million in the first nine months of 2015 did not recur in the first nine months of 2016, as well as changes in income tax. NACoal recorded an income tax provision of less than $0.1 million on a loss before income taxes of $1.1 million in the first nine months of 2016. The income tax provision for the first nine months of 2016 includes the reversal of a $2.3 million uncertain tax position. The Company also reversed a corresponding indemnification receivable related to the uncertain tax position that resulted in $2.2 million of other expense in the first nine months of 2016. The uncertain tax position and the indemnification receivable were initially recorded as part of the Centennial acquisition. NACoal recorded an income tax benefit of $1.8 million on income before tax of $1.6 million in the first nine months of 2015. The income tax benefit recognized in the first nine months of 2015 was impacted by the mix of taxable earnings and losses, including losses related to Centennial.
