The firm assisted James River Coal Company in a $475 million acquisition, three separate securities offerings that raised $685 million and the redemption of $150 million of its outstanding notes. James River is based in Richmond, Virginia and operates coal mines in Kentucky and Indiana. The company’s common stock offering brought in $180 million; its convertible notes offering raised $230 million; and its senior notes offering raised $275 million. All three offerings were co-managed by UBS and Deutsche Bank. James River used the cash from the securities offerings to fund its purchase of International Resource Partners, a privately held business based in Charleston, West Virginia, that operates coal mines in West Virginia and Kentucky, in an all-cash deal. James River also redeemed $150 million in notes that mature in 2012.
