Coal Industry Pension Fund Files Suit against Peabody Energy Corp. and Arch Coal Inc. over an Alleged $800 Million in Liabilities

A coal industry pension fund has filed suit against Peabody Energy Corp. and Arch Coal Inc. over an alleged $800 million in liabilities related to Patriot Coal Corp.'s bankruptcy. The suit was filed in Washington, D.C., District Court by the United Mine Workers of America 1974 plan. Patriot was created from assets that Peabody and Arch once owned. The company, which earlier in 2015 moved its headquarters from Creve Coeur to Scott Depot, West Virginia, filed for bankruptcy in May, and as part of its restructuring plans to exit the United Mine Workers pension. The pension plan is arguing in its suit that a principal purpose for creating Patriot was for Arch and Peabody to evade or avoid their obligations to the 1974 Pension Plan.

Peabody Energy Announces Executive Changes

Peabody Energy announced that it has named longstanding financial executive Amy Schwetz to Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. Schwetz replaces Michael Crews, who has announced plans to step down by the end of July 2015 to take the top financial position at a major industrial firm. Schwetz joined Peabody from major accounting firm Ernst and Young where she held multiple audit roles over eight years.

Peabody Energy Revises Earnings Guidance for the Second Quarter of 2015

Peabody Energy revised earnings guidance for the second quarter of 2015. For the quarter, the company's adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS are now expected to be below the original targeted range due to weather-related shipment issues in the Southern Powder River Basin and lower seaborne coal pricing. Although it did not provide a specific range, the company said second quarter adjusted loss should be wider than the $0.49 to $0.59 per share outlook provided in April when it announced first quarter results. It expects a timing-related impact of approximately $40 million in the second quarter as a result of a series of substantial rain and flash flooding events in the Southern Powder River Basin primarily in June that reduced production by 5.0 million to 5.5 million tons. The company has largely resumed normal production levels, and is scheduling to make up the deferred shipments in the third quarter and fourth quarter. It expects to incur an estimated $20 million to $25 million in the second quarter charges related to these activities, and these charges were not included in the company's previous financial targets. Approximately half of the charges are associated with the previously announced corporate and regional staff reductions, with the other half related to Australia mine site-related workforce reductions.
