Peabody Energy/Arch Coal, In the Matter of

The Federal Trade Commission has filed an administrative complaint challenging a proposed joint venture between Peabody Energy Corporation and Arch Coal. The transaction would combine their coal mining operations in the Southern Powder River Basin, located in northeastern Wyoming. The complaint alleges that the transaction will eliminate competition between Peabody and Arch Coal, the two major competitors in the market for thermal coal in the Southern Powder River Basin, and the two largest coal-mining companies in the United States. On Sept. 29, 2020, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri granted the FTC’s request for a preliminary injunction, and the parties abandoned their transaction.

Eldorado Resorts and Caesars Entertainment, In the Matter of

Casino operator Eldorado Resorts, Inc. has agreed to divest assets to settle charges that its $17.3 billion acquisition of Caesars Entertainment Corporation likely would be anticompetitive in the South Lake Tahoe area of Nevada, the Bossier City-Shreveport area of Louisiana, and the Kansas City area of Kansas and Missouri. According to the complaint, the proposed acquisition would harm competition for casino services in these three local markets, increasing the likelihood that Eldorado would unilaterally exercise market power, which in turn would lead to higher prices and reduced quality. In August 2020, the Federal Trade Commission approved a final order resolving those charges.
