Peabody Energy Corporation engages in the mining of thermal coal for sale primarily to electric utilities and metallurgical coal for sale to industrial customers. The company also markets and brokers coal from other coal producers, both as principal and agent, and trades coal and freight-related contracts through trading and business offices in Australia, China, Germany, India, Indonesia, the United Kingdom, and the United States (U.S.). The company’s other energy-related commercial activities include participating in operations of a mine-mouth coal-fueled generating plant, managing its coal reserve and real estate holdings, evaluating Btu Conversion projects and supporting the development of clean coal technologies. As of December 31, 2014, the company owned interests in 26 active coal mining operations located in the U.S. and Australia. The company has a majority interest in 25 of those mining operations and a 50% equity interest in the Middlemount Mine in Australia. Strategy The key elements of the company’s strategy include maintaining a position in the United States coal basins; continuing to develop its metallurgical and thermal coal platform in Australia; and expanding its global presence, particularly in Asian coal market segments. Segment and Geographic Information The company conducts business through four principal segments: Western U.S. Mining, Midwestern U.S. Mining, Australian Mining, and Trading and Brokerage. The company's fifth segment, Corporate and Other, includes mining and export/transportation joint ventures and activities associated with the optimization of its coal reserve and real estate holdings, the closure of inactive mining sites, and certain energy-related commercial matters. Mining segments U.S. Mining Operations The principal business of the company’s Western and Midwestern U.S. Mining segments is the mining, preparation and sale of thermal coal, which is typically supplied to U.S. electricity generators and industrial customers for power generation, with a portion sold into seaborne export markets. The company’s Western U.S. Mining segment consists of its Powder River Basin, Southwest and Colorado active mining operations. The mines in that segment are generally characterized by surface mining extraction processes and coal with a low sulfur and Btu content. The company’s Midwestern U.S. Mining segment includes its active mining operations in Illinois and Indiana, which are characterized by a mix of surface and underground mining extraction processes and coal with a high sulfur and Btu content. Australian Mining Operations The company’s Australian Mining segment operations consist of its mines in Queensland and New South Wales, Australia. The mines in that segment are characterized by both surface and underground extraction processes for the mining of various qualities of metallurgical and thermal coal. Metallurgical coal qualities produced by that segment include hard coking, semi-hard coking, semi-soft, and low volatile pulverized coal injection (LV PCI) coals. LV PCI coal is generally used by steel producers as a partial replacement for coke made from coking coal. The company’s Australian Mining segment operations are primarily export focused with customers spread across various countries, with a portion of its coal being sold within Australia. Trading and Brokerage segment Trading and Brokerage segment engages in the direct and brokered trading of coal and freight-related contracts through the trading and business offices. Coal brokering is conducted both as principal and agent in support of various coal production-related activities that may involve coal produced from the company’s mines, coal sourcing arrangements with third-party mining companies or offtake agreements with other coal producers. The company’s Trading and Brokerage segment also provides transportation-related services, which involves both financial derivative contracts and physical contracts.
