James River Files for Chapter 11

www.womp-int.com [cached]

"The coal markets in the U.S. have changed dramatically during the past several years," said Peter T. Socha, chairman and CEO of James River Coal.
"We have made a number of large and significant changes to our mine operations and administrative overhead in response to the changes in the coal markets. Now we need to adjust our balance sheet and debt structure to align ourselves to the new industry." "We took this action to restructure under Chapter 11 because it will allow us to adjust the balance sheet and improve our liquidity in a controlled and definitive manner," Socha said.

James River plans to reorganize and begin operating in a vastly different manner as is needed in a new landscape, said Peter Socha, the company's chairman and chief executive officer.
"Some of these changes are cyclical due to continued weakness in the real economy. Other changes are more permanent like changes in government environmental regulations, improved methods to produce natural gas and switching between coal basins by domestic power utilities," he said. "We need to adjust our balance sheet and debt structure to align ourselves to the new industry." Socha hinted that James River is not the only company feeling the pinch.
