SEATTLE, Oct. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- L & L Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: "LLEN") ("L&L" or "Company"), a Seattle-based company with a five-year track record of profitable coal operations in China, is pleased to announce today it has signed an updated contract to sell 360,000 tons of coal to Datang International Power Co. ("Datang"). Datang is one of China's largest power generators.
On October 15, 2012, L&L entered into a contract with Datang to increase its coal supplied to 360,000 tons through September 2013. The contract is timed for the higher demand over the winter season and firming of coal prices in the region. L&L will begin shipments this month, ramping up to a targeted 37,000 tons per month in early 2013. L&L satisfied Datang's stringent vendor qualification process and delivered a trial shipment in June. The updated contract is a realization of the company's consolidation and distribution strategy, with emphasis on building business relationships with major coal players in China. Datang also noted L&L's strong logistics network, particularly its access to limited railroad capacity in the region which helps ensure timely deliveries to the Company's customers.
L&L's Chairman and CEO Dickson Lee commented, "I am pleased with this new contract, which is another step in cementing our relationship with Datang. We look forward to supplying more coal to Datang beyond this contract."
