ITEM 7.01


On October 1, 2019, Foresight Energy LLC and Foresight Energy Finance Corporation (together, the “Issuers”), wholly owned subsidiaries of Foresight Energy LP (the “Partnership”), elected to exercise the 30-day grace period with respect to the interest payment due under the indenture (the “Indenture”) governing the Issuers’ 11.50% Second Lien Senior Secured Notes due 2023.  The election to exercise the 30-day grace period extends the time period the Issuers have to make the approximately $24.4 million interest payment without triggering an event of default under the Indenture.  Events of default will exist under Foresight Energy LLC’s credit agreement governing its senior secured first‑priority credit facilities and Foresight Energy Services LLC’s master lease agreement, if the Issuers do not make the interest payment prior to the end of the 30-day grace period.  During the grace period, we intend to evaluate our options with respect to this matter.  

The information in this Current Report is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liability of such section or incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.

Such statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause results to differ materially from the Partnership’s expectations, including the risk factors described in the Partnership’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, as updated in the Partnership’s subsequently filed Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. While the Partnership makes these statements in good faith, neither the Partnership nor its management can guarantee that anticipated future results will be achieved. The Partnership assumes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements made herein or any other forward-looking statements made by the Partnership, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise
