15:35 EDTCLFCliffs Natural gets unanimous support from lenders to amend credit facility
Earlier today, Cliffs Natural Resources announced that it has entered into an agreement to amend its existing $1.75B unsecured revolving credit facility with its syndicate of banking partners. The amendment agreement replaces the existing leverage covenant ratio with a Debt-to-Capitalization ratio for the life of the facility in order to provide the company a more consistent source of liquidity. This amended facility retains substantial financial flexibility for management to continue making prudent business decisions during this period of pricing volatility. Unlike the prior amendment completed in the first quarter of 2013, this amendment addresses the leverage covenant for the life of the facility, while also retaining the full $1.75B facility size and the existing maturity date of Oct. 16, 2017. The new amended terms are effective June 30 and received the unanimous support of the entire lender group, despite requiring only greater than 50% approval. Cliffs further stated that it has undertaken proactive measures to manage its debt and liquidity profile in order to further strengthen its balance sheet as iron ore and met coal prices continue to be volatile. The company's management team continues to take the necessary steps to ensure the organization can operate efficiently and maintain consistent access to liquidity through an industry-wide cyclical downturn. The completion of the amendment is further evidence of management's commitment to its balance sheet and liquidity management objectives. Cliffs Natural is higher by 2.73% in late afternoon trading.

08:18 EDTCLFCliffs Natural reports Q2 U.S. iron ore pellet sales volume down 2% to 4.2M tons
Cliffs Natural reports U.S. Iron Ore pellet sales volume in Q2 was 4.2M tons, a 2% decrease when compared to the second quarter of 2014. The decrease was driven by reduced year-over-year export sales and lower demand by U.S. mills, partially offset by improved shipping conditions on the Great Lakes. Cash production cost per ton in U.S. Iron Ore was $56.06, down 9% from $61.37 in the prior year's second quarter. The decrease was driven by a reduction in salaried workforce headcount and overall reductions in employment costs along with a year-over-year reduction in energy rates. This was partially offset by decreases in production volume due to scheduled maintenance and repairs. Realized revenue rates of $78.32 per ton were lower than previously guided as a result of a significant adjustment to the hot-band steel price estimate for one major contract.
