Yesterday, Tennessee-based metallurgical coal suppliers, Contura Energy, Inc. (Contura), ANR, Inc. and Alpha Natural Resources Holdings, Inc. (together, Alpha), announced the confidential submission by Contura of a registration statement on Form S-4 with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) relating to the previously announced proposed merger between the companies.
According to Contura, the initial submission is preliminary. A revised Form S-4, comprising a joint proxy statement for the Alpha special meetings and prospectus, containing updated information will be filed and available on the SEC’s website prior to any vote by Alpha stockholders on the proposed transaction.
The completion of the transaction is reportedly subject to compliance with the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (the HSR Act). Contura and Alpha received early termination of the applicable waiting period under the HSR Act on 2 July 2018.
On 30 April 2018, Contura and Alpha entered into a definitive merger agreement providing for an all-stock transaction to create a premier US metallurgical coal platform and cost-competitive thermal coal portfolio.
The transaction is now expected to close prior to year-end 2018.
