ABINGDON, Va., Feb. 14, 2007—
Alpha Natural Resources, Inc. (NYSE: ANR), a leading supplier of high-quality Appalachian coal, reported that revenues and profitability rose substantially in 2006 on strong pricing and higher sales volumes.
“Alpha’s ability to supply premium coals and capture leading per-ton revenues was the key driver behind our solid performance in 2006, and helped us counteract some of the productivity challenges we faced in the second half,” said Michael Quillen, Chairman and CEO. “In a business that’s very sensitive to changes in supply and demand, we’ll be carefully managing our mine portfolio this year to preserve those margins, while remaining prepared to seize growth opportunities in a consolidating industry.”
