April 3 (Bloomberg) -- OAO Mechel, Russia’s largest producer of coal for steelmakers, rose a third day after a watchdog declined to pull licenses for the company’s Southern Kuzbass unit, according to RIA Novosti.

Mechel advanced as much as 3.4 percent and traded up 2.9 percent at 276.60 rubles at 2:55 p.m. in Moscow.

The Subsoil Resources Agency, known as Rosnedra, is still waiting for materials on license violations at Mechel’s Yakutugol, deputy head Vladimir Bavlov told the news service.

Separately, international lenders may agree to increase rates for Mechel 50 basis points in exchange for letting the company breach previously-agreed financial covenants, Luis Saenz, chief executive officer of the U.S. unit of Moscow-based brokerage Otkritie Financial Corp. said in a note today, citing Debt Wire.
