11:08 EDTANRPeabody plunges after Moody's lowers credit rating
Shares of coal miner Peabody (BTU) are lower in late morning trading after Moody's Investors Service downgraded the company's credit rating last night. WHAT'S NEW: Moody's Investors Service downgraded the ratings of Peabody, including the corporate family rating, to B3 from B2, probability of default rating to B3-PD from B2-PD. The firm noted that the outlook is negative. Moody's said that the downgrade "reflects our expectation of continued deterioration in the company's credit metrics, more precipitous than we had forecasted previously, due to the ongoing decline in the seaborne metallurgical coal markets." The firm expects that the company's Debt/EBITDA, as adjusted, will approach 9x in 2015. Moody's said that although it anticipates some recovery in 2016, it sees the leverage remaining elevated at around 7x. Absent asset sales, the company will generate negative free cash flows in 2015 and 2016, Moody's said in the report. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Moody's said that a further downgrade would be considered if liquidity deteriorated, free cash flows were repeatedly negative and/or Debt/EBITDA exceeded 8x on a sustained basis. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Peabody are down over 9.5% to $2.08 in late morning trading, rebounding from an earlier low of $1.92. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the coal mining space include Alpha Natural Resources (ANR), Arch Coal (ACI) and CONSOL Energy (CNX).

05:50 EDTMCPMolycorp files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection
Molycorp announced that it has executed a restructuring support agreement with creditors that hold over 70% of the aggregate principal amount of the company's 10% senior secured notes. The agreement provides for a financial restructuring of the company's $1.7B in debt and provides up to $225M in gross proceeds in new financing to support operations while the company completes negotiations with creditors. To facilitate its financial restructuring, Molycorp and its North American subsidiaries filed voluntary petitions under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. The companyís operations outside of North America, with the exception of non-operating companies in Luxembourg and Barbados, are excluded from the filings. Molycorp Rare Metals, with operations in Quapaw, Oklahoma, also is excluded from the filings as it is not 100% owned by the company. Molycorp has obtained commitments from a group of its 10% senior secured noteholders, led by JHL Capital Group, JMB Capital Partners and QVT Financial, for up to $225M in gross proceeds of debtor-in-possession financing, subject to court approval, which will be used to support operations during the Chapter 11 period. Approximately $40M of this amount is expected to be made available to the company immediately after an initial court hearing, with approximately another $90M available subject to court approval at a further hearing at the end of the first month of the case. The remainder is available on a delayed basis and subject to lender conditions. "Employees are working their usual schedules. Purchasing of goods and services will continue, with all purchases made after today's filings granted a special administrative priority under the law," Molycorp said. It expects to receive notice from the New York Stock Exchange that its shares will be delisted from the NYSE within nine calendar days of notification. It expects that its shares will be traded on the OTC Pink Sheets exchange.
