Register, or to view the article

Peabody announced its third quarter 2020 operating results with revenues sinking 39 percent from the prior year to $671.0 million due to lower volumes, mix changes and weaker seaborne pricing. US thermal revenues declined $215.4 million, including $82.6 million from Kayenta's closure in the third quarter of 2019. The Company also reported a loss of $67.2 million, or 69 cents a share, albeit narrower than its loss of $82.8 million, or 81 cents a share, for the year-earlier period.
