    Global coal M&A activity: October 2016

    Report summary

    Coal M&A spend remains at historical lows this year with only a few large size transactions concluded. However, for the few buyers able to secure assets this year, we asses deal-implied prices were struck at between US$75-101/tonne for metallurgical coal and US$48-71/tonne. With the recovery in coal prices in Q3, most of the recent deals appear to have been well-timed in the cycle.
