Global coal M&A June 2022: Deals on hold as prices surge

Report summary

Fortune favours the brave, and perhaps those with a bit of luck. That rings true for the handful of companies that managed to secure a transaction in 2021 ahead of the record price spikes seen in recent months. For miners unable to strike deals, rewards were still forthcoming owing to soaring coal prices and surging cashflow. The surge in market capitalisations, and asset prices more broadly has halted deals in 2022.
