US-based Peabody Energy has a market capitalisation of around $US4.7bn ($A6bn) just over a year after it emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Peabody’s Australian operations in particular have performed well in the last year, having achieved a pre-tax operating profit margins of nearly 40 per cent in the March quarter. There has been speculation about potential acquisitions, but Peabody CEO Glenn Kellow says the company’s priority is to return capital to investors via share buybacks and dividends.
