Coeclerici Coal Network LLC, an American company in which Coeclerici holds a 51% stake, has acquired full ownership of the coal trading division of Alley-Cassetty Companies, Inc., a coal trading and brokerage company that is among the oldest in the United States, with headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee.

This acquisition will allow Coeclerici Coal Network to increase its business, currently concentrated in the Ohio and Mississippi river basins, as well as reinforce the company’s position in markets in the southern and western US, guaranteeing the entire Coeclerici Group direct access to the most important coal reserves in the U.S., one of the most dependable and reliable sources of coal in the world.

Founded in 1879, Alley-Cassetty Coal operates in the coal trading sector in Tennessee and surrounding states. Over the course of 2012, the company generated sales for more than $30 million.

“I’m particularly proud of this result,” said Paolo Clerici, President and CEO of Coeclerici S.p.A., “because it confirms the long-term relationship we’ve established in the U.S. market, one we’ve consolidated over a century of importing coal from America into Italy, acting as exclusive agents for Consol Energy since 1912. This most recent U.S. acquisition reinforces our position in one of the world’s most important markets.”

The Coeclerici Group’s acquisition of Coal Network, completed in January 2013, also includes the possibility for Coeclerici to acquire an additional 35% stake within five years. This would increase Coeclerici’s participation from the current 51% to a total 86% stake in the company.
