Amendment No. 2

 

“§9.3 Payment Procedures for Coal Shipments. For all coal loaded at the Barge Delivery Point(s) between the [***] and [***] days of any Delivery Month plus any Weight True-Up, Buyer shall make a “Preliminary Payment” of one-hundred percent (100%) of the Base Price for such coal (based on the assumption that the coal will meet all Guaranteed Monthly Weighted Average parameters) by the [***] day of such Delivery Month. All Preliminary Payments shall be calculated based solely on the then-current Base Price on a dollar-per-ton basis. By the [***] day of the Payment Month, Buyer will pay for all coal loaded at the Barge Delivery Point(s) between the [***] and the last day of any Delivery Month plus any Weight True-Up and taking into account all quality adjustments for coal unloaded for the Delivery Month as provided in §8.2 above.

 

For example, Buyer will make a Preliminary Payment by [***] for coal loaded at Barge Delivery Point(s) between [***] through [***] plus any Weight True-Up. On or before the [***] working day of September, Buyer will provide Seller with the Buyer’s Statement. On or before the [***] day of September, the Seller shall provide Buyer the Monthly Invoice for all coal loaded by Seller at the Barge Delivery Point(s) plus any Weight True-Up in August plus any quality adjustments for coal unloaded in August. The Monthly Invoice for August, to the extent it is verified by Buyer, less the August Preliminary Payment will be paid by the [***] day of September. In every case referenced in this section for payment, if a specific day is not a banking day and regular work day for Buyer, payment shall be made on the next regular work day for Buyer. Buyer shall electronically transfer funds to Seller’s Account based on the account information (including Bank name, ABA number and Account number) provided in writing, in a form reasonably acceptable to Buyer, prior to the first (1st) Shipment under this Agreement. Seller reserves the right to modify such account information on prior written notice reasonably acceptable to Buyer.”

 

C. STATUS OF AGREEMENT

 

As amended hereby, the Agreement is hereby ratified and confirmed and shall continue in full force and effect.
