This excerpt taken from the ACI DEF 14A filed Mar 20, 2008.
Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners
The following table shows all persons or entities that we know were beneficial owners of more than five percent of our common stock on February 25, 2008.
Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires our directors, executive officers and any persons beneficially holding more than ten percent of our common stock to report their ownership of common stock and any changes in that ownership to the Securities and Exchange Commission and the New York Stock Exchange. The Securities and Exchange Commission has established specific due dates for these reports, and we are required to report in this proxy statement any failure to file by these dates. Based solely on a review of the copies of the reports furnished to us and written representations that no other such statements were required, we believe that all such reports of our directors and executive officers were filed on a timely basis, except that a Form 4 reporting one transaction was filed on behalf of each non-employee director after the due date of the report.
If you wish to submit proposals for possible inclusion in our 2009 proxy materials, we must receive them at our principal executive offices no later than the close of business on November 21, 2008. Proposals should be addressed to Robert G. Jones, Vice President-Law, General Counsel and Secretary, Arch Coal, Inc., One CityPlace Drive, Suite 300, St. Louis, Missouri 63141.
If you wish to nominate directors and/or propose proper business from the floor for consideration at the 2008 annual meeting of stockholders, our bylaws provide that:
We will send copies of these requirements to any stockholder who writes to us requesting this information. Please note that these three requirements apply only to matters that you wish to bring before your fellow stockholders at the 2009 annual meeting of stockholders without submitting them for possible inclusion in our 2009 proxy materials.
