Peabody 2Q20 Results

by Bonnie Corbett | Aug 06, 2020
On 5 August 2020, Peabody Energy Company (Peabody, Company) announced its second quarter results for the period ended 30 June 2020. Overall, the results were weak (although not unexpected), 2Q20 revenues were USD627m down 45% on the prior corresponding period (pcp), reflecting the impact of a decrease in volumes in the Powder River Basin compounded by challenging U.S. industry conditions and weak commodity prices, in conjunction with lower gas prices which drives higher electricity generation from gas rather than coal.
