Annual Report on Form 10-K and Investor Call

 

The filing of James River Coal Company’s (the “Company”) Annual Report on Form 10-K for its fiscal year ended December 31, 2013 (the “10-K”) will be delayed due to (i) the strategic review process announced on February 7, 2014, and (ii) the Company’s financial statements and other disclosures to be included in its 10-K are not complete because of the time requirements of the strategic review process and the significant accounting and reporting issues related to both the strategic review process and the previously announced adjustments to the Company’s mining operations, including the closure and idling of mines. Additionally, given the Company’s current liquidity needs and the uncertainty surrounding the outcome of our strategic review process, our auditors have communicated to us that if they were to deliver an audit opinion based on the current circumstances, their audit opinion would contain a going concern qualification.

 

Due to the above, the Company is uncertain when the 10-K will be filed and therefore will not host an investor call to discuss its fourth quarter and full year 2013 results.

 

3.125% Convertbile Senior Notes due 2018

 

In 2011 the Company issued $230.0 million of its 3.125% Convertible Senior Notes due 2018 (the “2018 Notes”), of which $13.3 million in aggregate principal amount remained outstanding as of September 30, 2013. The next interest payment on the 2018 Notes is due March 17, 2014 (which is the next succeeding business day after the March 15 interest payment date). The Company does not intend to make this interest payment on the due date. Pursuant to the Indenture governing the 2018 Notes, the Company is entitled to a thirty-day grace period in which to make the interest payment before an “Event of Default” is deemed to have occurred under the Indenture.
