Contura, Alpha merger: everything old is new again

Report summary

On 30 April 2018, Contura Energy and Alpha Natural Resources announced a merger agreement in an all-stock transaction that they expect to finalise in the third quarter of this year. The combined entity will retain the Contura Energy name and be led by Contura’s existing management team, with Kevin Crutchfield continuing as chief executive officer. This deal will create the largest metallurgical coal producer in the US. As a combined entity, we expect Appalachia production in 2018 to be around 25 Mst, of which more than 10 Mst is metallurgical coal.
