Global coal M&A activity August 2018: deal implied prices move higher

Report summary

Global coal M&A spend (ex. China and India) continued to strengthen in 2018, largely due to Rio Tinto's exit from coal. In this insight we take a closer look at the key deals and their drivers as well as an outlook on future activity. Stronger coal prices in 2018 have bolstered cashflows and confidence which has resulted in rising deal implied transaction prices.

Table of contents

    • Deal implied prices continue to move higher signalling a return of confidence
    • Operating mines still preferred, but increasing focus on projects with near term development options
