Arch Coal Reports 2Q Loss On Weaker Revenues

Arch Coal Inc. posted net losses of $72.2 million, or 34 cents per share, in the second quarter. That compares with losses of $435.5 million, or $2.05 per share, a year earlier.

The Creve Coeur-based company says the second-quarter loss reflects overall weakness for coal used in making steel. Excluding one-time costs, Arch reported an adjusted loss of $60.5 million, or 29 cents per share.
