Expert analysis in post-acquisition coal mining dispute

CRA was engaged by counsel to serve as an expert in a post-acquisition dispute involving two large metallurgical coal mines in the Appalachian region. CRA was engaged to analyze alleged damages stemming from royalty agreements, failed operations, and other industry specific issues. CRA analyzed coal price futures that were instrumental in assessing present value cash flow streams. The matter evolved into bankruptcy where we were engaged to analyze preference payments and determine whether fair value was received on behalf of the bankrupt entity. CRA filed an expert report and the case resolved due to the bankruptcy.
