Report summary

Global coal M&A spend (ex. China and India) rebounded strongly in H1 2017 but the number of deals continued to fall. While we do not presently report on China specific transactions the potential mega merger between Shenhua and China Goudian to create a coal power titan would dwarf coal transactions worldwide. Early signs of competition and price escalation for prized assets re emerged following Yancoal and Glencore's short bidding duel for Rio Tinto's Coal & Allied operations.
