TX Holdings, Inc., a supplier of mining and rail products to the U.S. coal mining industry, today announced financial results for its 2020 fiscal year. During the 2020 fiscal year, the company reported annual revenue of $2,335,590, a 40.6% decrease when compared to the same period the prior year. Net income for fiscal year 2020 was $4,128, an income decrease of $38,316, when compared to a net income of $42,444 for the prior year.
Mr. Shrewsbury, the company’s CEO and Chairman, stated that
“Our 9/30/2020 year was very disappointing. The coal mining industry was negatively impacted by reduced consumption of coal due to slowing economic growth related to COVID-19 and efforts to mitigate it. We are currently seeing in the current quarter a positive change resulting in some mines reopening and an increase in orders”.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), expects total U.S. coal production for 2020 to be 525 million short tons compared with 705 MMst in 2019, a 26% decrease. The coal industry has experienced reduced demand from the U.S. electric power sector amid low natural gas prices which have contributed to coal mines idling and mine closures. EIA expects coal production to rise o t625 MMst in 2021, up 19% from 2020.This forecast increase reflects rising demand for coal from U.S. electricity generators because of higher natural gas prices compared with 2020.
