Highlight of Business Operations:

The comparability of our operating results between the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 is affected by the acquisition of ICG on June 15, 2011. Coal sales revenues attributed to acquired ICG operations were $272.4 million in the second quarter of 2012 and $510.6 million in the first half of 2012, compared with $48.4 million in 2011.

Revenues. Our revenues consist of coal sales and revenues from our ADDCAR subsidiary acquired with ICG. The following table summarizes information about coal sales during the three months ended June 30, 2012 and compares it with the information for the three months ended June 30, 2011:

Per-ton costs were higher due to the lower production levels and higher diesel costs, which offset the impact of lower overall spending. Our total production costs were down in the second quarter of 2012 due to the redeployment of employees and equipment to significant reclamation activities performed during the quarter, reducing the number of contractors, and lower maintenance costs resulting from the idling of equipment. We expect this current cycle of reclamation to be largely completed in the third quarter.
