Investor FAQs

  • The Partnership completed its initial public offering as a publicly traded master limited partnership (MLP) on August 20, 1999. The IPO was for 7,750,000 Common Units representing limited partner interests in the Partnership at a price of $19.00 per unit.
  • MLPs are businesses that are taxed at the unitholder level and generally are not subject to federal or state income tax. Annual income, gains, losses, deductions or credits of the MLP pass through to its unitholders. Unitholders report their allocated shares of these amounts on their individual tax returns, as though the unitholder had incurred these items directly.
  • Unitholders are limited partners in the Partnership. They own units of the Partnership rather than shares of stock.
  • ARLP common units trade on the NASDAQ Global Select Market under the ticker 'ARLP.'
  • Partners receive cash distributions rather than dividends. Generally, the cash distributions paid to a partner are treated as a non-taxable return of capital as long as the unitholder’s tax basis remains above zero.
  • ARLP currently anticipates that it will make cash distributions within 45 days after the end of each March, June, September and December to unitholders of record on the applicable dates. The Board of Directors considers changes to ARLP’s cash distribution to unitholders on a quarterly basis.
  • Similar to a Form 1099 received by corporate shareholders, Schedule K-1 provides unitholders with income tax information relevant to their ownership in the Partnership.
  • Alliance typically mails Schedule K-1s to unitholders at the end of each February. You can also access Schedule K-1 information by clicking on the link for “ARLP K-1 Information” at the bottom of the home page on our website at If you need assistance obtaining your K-1 please call (800) 485-6875.
