On Tuesday 21 August, Tennessee-based coal supplier, Contura Energy, Inc. (Contura), along with leading American producer of metallurgical coal ANR, Inc. and Alpha Natural Resources Holdings, Inc. (together, “Alpha”), announced the public filing 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.
The registration statement was previously submitted confidentially to the SEC on 16 July 2018.
The registration statement has been filed with the SEC but has not yet become effective. The securities subject to the registration statement may not be sold, nor may offers to buy be accepted, prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective.
On 30 April 2018, Contura and Alpha announced that the companies had 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 reportedly anticipated to close prior to year-end 2018, likely in early- to mid-fourth quarter, subject to customary closing conditions including the approval of the Alpha shareholders.
