SunCoke Energy, Inc.

The key assets of the MLP are expected to be a portion of SunCoke Energy’s interests in each of its Haverhill and Middletown cokemaking facilities, located in Franklin Furnace, Ohio and Middletown, Ohio, respectively. SunCoke Energy would own the general partner of the proposed MLP, SunCoke Energy Partners, L.P., as well as all of the MLP incentive distribution rights and a portion of the units representing limited partner interests in the MLP.

Additional information will be included in the registration statement.
