The Company is subject to two major debt arrangements: (1) $125.0 million senior secured notes at WML that are collateralized by all assets of WML, Westmoreland Savage Corporation, or WSC, Western Energy Company, or WECO, and Dakota Westmoreland Corporation, or DWC, and (2) $150.0 million senior secured notes (issued February 4, 2011) at the Parent level that are largely collateralized by the assets of the Parent, WRI and ROVA, referred to herein as the Parent Notes.
These quarterly consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010, or the 2010 Form 10-K. The accounting principles followed by the Company are set forth in the Notes to the Company’s consolidated financial statements in its 2010 Form 10-K. Most of the descriptions of the accounting principles and other footnote disclosures previously made have been omitted in this report so long as the interim information presented is not misleading.
The consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles and require use of management’s estimates. The financial information contained in this Form 10-Q is unaudited, but reflects all adjustments, which are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair presentation of the financial information for the periods shown. Such adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. The results of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2011 are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2011.
2.   ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Newly Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
In January 2010, accounting guidance was issued regarding fair value measurements and disclosures and improvement in the disclosure about fair value measurements. This guidance requires additional disclosures regarding significant transfers in and out of Levels 1 and 2 of fair value measurements, including a description of the reasons for the transfers. This guidance also requires additional disclosures for the activity in Level 3 fair value measurements, requiring presentation of information about purchases, sales, issuances, and settlements in the reconciliation for fair value measurements. This guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2010, and for interim periods within those fiscal years. See Note 10 for applicable disclosures.
Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Implemented
In May 2011, accounting guidance was issued which generally aligns the principles for fair value measurements and the related disclosure requirements under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles and International Financial Reporting Standards. This guidance requires additional disclosures regarding details about Level 3 fair value measurements, including quantitative information about the significant unobservable inputs used in estimating fair value, a discussion of the sensitivity of the measurement to these inputs and a description of the entity’s valuation processes. Disclosures will also be needed concerning any transfers between Level 1 and 2 of the fair value hierarchy (not just significant transfers as previous guidance required) and the hierarchy classification for items whose fair value is not recorded on the balance sheet but is disclosed in the notes. This standard is effective for periods beginning after December 15, 2011. The Company has determined that the adoption of this standard will affect the Company’s disclosures but will not have a material effect on the Company’s financial position or results of operations.

In June 2011, accounting guidance was issued which requires an entity to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. This guidance eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of equity. This standard is effective for periods beginning after December 15, 2011. The Company has determined that the adoption of this standard will affect the Company’s disclosures but will not have a material effect on the Company’s financial position or results of operations.

On February 4, 2011 through a private placement offering, the Company issued $150.0 million of Parent Notes, which are senior secured notes. The Company’s subsidiary, Westmoreland Partners, was a co-issuer of the notes. The Parent Notes were issued at a 5% discount, mature February 18, 2018, and bear a fixed interest rate of 10.750%, payable semi-annually, in arrears, on February 1 and August 1 of each year beginning August 1, 2011. Substantially all of the assets of the Parent, ROVA and WRI constitute collateral for the Parent Notes as to which the holders of these notes have a first priority lien. Under the indenture governing the Parent Notes, the Company is required to offer a portion of its Excess Cash Flow (as defined by the indenture) for each fiscal year to purchase some of these notes at 100% of the principal amount.
As a result of this offering, the Company recorded a $17.0 million loss on extinguishment of debt in the six months ended June 30, 2011. The loss included a $9.1 million make-whole payment for ROVA’s debt and $7.9 million of non-cash write-offs of unamortized discount on debt and related capitalized debt costs and convertible debt conversion expense.

10.   FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
Fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. See Notes 4, 8 and 9 for additional disclosures related to fair value measurements.
Fair value hierarchy prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value. The hierarchy, as defined below, gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs.
    Level 1, defined as observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets for identical assets.
    Level 2, defined as observable inputs other than Level 1 prices. These include quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in an active market, quoted prices for identical assets and liabilities in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.
    Level 3, defined as unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions.
The table below sets forth, by level, the Company’s financial assets that are accounted for at fair value:
         
    Fair Value at

13.   EARNINGS PER SHARE
Basic earnings (loss) per share has been computed by dividing the net income (loss) applicable to common shareholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during each period. Net income (loss) applicable to common shareholders includes the adjustment for net income or loss attributable to noncontrolling interest. Diluted earnings (loss) per share is computed by including the dilutive effect of common stock that would be issued assuming conversion or exercise of outstanding convertible notes and securities, stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock units and warrants. No such items were included in the computation of diluted loss per share in the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 and the six months ended June 30, 2010 because the Company incurred a loss from operations in each of these periods and the effect of inclusion would have been anti-dilutive.

ITEM 2
MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION
AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains “forward-looking statements.” Forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “seeks,” “believes,” “estimates,” “expects” and similar references to future periods. Examples of forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements we make about our expectation that the hydropower conditions impacting our operations will return to normal during the third quarter of 2011, the expectation that our cash flows from operations, cash on hand and available borrowing capacity will be sufficient to meet our investing, financing, and working capital requirements for several years, our intended use of the net proceeds remaining from the Parent Notes offering for general corporate purposes including the possible acquisition of new reserves, our expectation that distributions from ROVA and WRI will comprise a significant source of liquidity for us and that we expect to make approximately $5.4 million of pension plan contributions during the remainder of 2011 and expect a significant portion of these contributions to be made in Company stock.
Forward-looking statements are based on our current expectations and assumptions regarding our business, the economy and other future conditions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict. Our actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements. We caution you therefore against relying on any of these forward-looking statements. They are neither statements of historical fact nor guarantees or assurances of future performance. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include political, economic, business, competitive, market, weather and regulatory conditions and the following:

Overview
Westmoreland Coal Company is an energy company whose operations include five surface coal mines in Montana, North Dakota and Texas and two coal-fired power-generating units with a total capacity of 230 megawatts in North Carolina. We sold 25.2 million tons of coal in 2010. Our two principal operating segments consist of our coal and power segments. We also have two non-operating segments.
We are a holding company and conduct our operations through subsidiaries. We have significant cash requirements to fund our ongoing heritage health benefit costs and corporate overhead expenses. The principal sources of cash flow to us are distributions from our principal operating subsidiaries. As a result of the Parent Notes offering, discussed below, we have $41.7 million cash on hand at June 30, 2011. The indenture governing the Parent Notes also permits us to enter into a revolving credit facility at the Parent.
Recent Developments
In February 2011, we completed a private placement of $150.0 million of senior secured notes due in 2018, referred to herein as the Parent Notes. The net proceeds from the offering of the Parent Notes were used to pay all dividend arrearages on our Series A preferred stock; to repay all outstanding term and revolving line of credit debt at our Roanoke Valley power plants, or ROVA, and Westmoreland Resources, Inc., or WRI; to retire approximately $2.5 million of the outstanding principal owed on our senior secured convertible notes (the remaining principal balance of the senior secured convertible notes was converted to common stock); and for general corporate purposes. We a filed a registration statement with the SEC on June 4, 2011 pursuant to which we are offering to exchange the Parent Notes for identical notes registered under the Securities Act of 1933. We are making this exchange offer solely to satisfy our obligations under a registration rights agreement relating to the Parent Notes.

    Items recorded in the three and six months ended June 30, 2011
    In the six months ended June 30, 2011, and as a result of the Parent Notes offering, we recorded $17.0 million of loss on extinguishment of debt. The loss included a $9.1 million make-whole payment for ROVA’s debt and $7.9 million of non-cash write-offs of unamortized discount on debt and related capitalized debt costs and convertible debt conversion expense.
    In the six months ended June 30, 2011, upon the Parent Notes offering and subsequent retirement of our convertible debt, we recorded an expense of $3.1 million resulting from the mark-to-market accounting for the conversion feature in the notes with $0.1 million of interest expense of a related debt discount.

    Items recorded in the three and six months ended June 30, 2010
    In the three months ended June 30, 2010, we recorded income of $4.6 million resulting from the mark-to-market accounting of the conversion feature in our convertible notes with $0.3 million of interest expense of a related debt discount. During the three months ended March 31, 2010, we recorded an expense of $4.5 million resulting from the mark-to-market accounting of the conversion feature, which offset against the income recorded in the three months ended June 30, 2010.
    In the six months ended June 30, 2010, we recorded income of $0.1 million resulting from the mark-to-market accounting of the conversion feature in our convertible notes with $0.6 million of interest expense of a related debt discount.
Quarter Ended June 30, 2011 Compared to Quarter Ended June 30, 2010
Summary
Our second quarter 2011 revenues decreased to $112.1 million compared with $127.6 million in the second quarter of 2010. This decrease was primarily driven by a decrease in our coal segment revenues due mostly to favorable hydropower conditions, which displaced our customers’ coal-generated power. Record high levels of snow in the Pacific Northwest displaced power primarily at our Rosebud Mine. Coal revenues also decreased due to flooding conditions which disrupted rail service to our Absaloka Mine and the expiration of an unprofitable coal contract at our Rosebud Mine. The above decreases in our coal segment revenues were partially offset with an increase in our power segment revenues of $0.2 million related to an increase in megawatt hours sold as a result of shorter planned outages.
Our second quarter 2011 net loss applicable to common shareholders increased to $7.7 million compared with $0.9 million of income in the second quarter of 2010. Excluding $4.3 million of second quarter 2010 income discussed in Items that Affect Comparability of Our Results, our net loss increased by $4.4 million. The primary factors, in aggregate, driving this increase in net loss were:

Our second quarter 2011 coal segment revenues decreased to $90.8 million compared with $106.5 million in the second quarter of 2010. This $15.7 million decrease was primarily due to favorable hydropower conditions, which displaced our customers’ coal-generated power. Coal revenues also decreased due to flooding conditions which disrupted rail service to our Absaloka Mine and to the expiration of an unprofitable coal contract at our Rosebud Mine.
Our coal segment operating income was $2.1 million in the second quarter of 2011 compared to $5.7 million in the second quarter of 2010. This $3.6 million decrease was primarily driven by favorable hydropower conditions and flooding conditions explained above, partially offset with the expiration of an unprofitable coal contract at our Rosebud Mine.
We expect the hydropower conditions impacting our operations to return to normal during the third quarter of 2011.

Our second quarter 2011 power segment revenues increased to $21.4 million compared to $21.2 million in second quarter 2010. This $0.2 million increase is primarily from increased megawatt hours sold as a result of shorter planned outages.
Our power segment operating income increased to $2.5 million in the second quarter of 2011 compared to $1.3 million in the second quarter of 2010. This $1.1 million increase was primarily from decreased maintenance costs.

Corporate Segment Operating Results
Our corporate segment operating expenses for the second quarter of 2011 of $1.7 million is comparable to $1.9 million in the second quarter of 2010.
Nonoperating Results (including interest expense, other income and income tax benefit)
Our interest expense for the second quarter of 2011 increased to $7.6 million compared with $5.8 million for the second quarter of 2010. This increase was primarily due to the higher overall debt levels resulting from the Parent Notes offering.
Our other income for the second quarter of 2011 decreased to $0.2 million compared with $4.7 million of income for the second quarter of 2010. Excluding the $4.6 million impact of the fair value adjustment on derivatives discussed in Items that Affect Comparability of Our Results, our other income increased $0.2 million primarily due to gains on sales of securities during the second quarter of 2011.
Our income tax benefit for the second quarter of 2011 increased to $0.2 million compared with less than $0.1 million for the second quarter of 2010. This increase was due to lower taxable income.
Six Months Ended June 30, 2011 Compared to Six Months Ended June 30, 2010
Summary
Our revenues for the first six months of 2011 decreased to $239.9 million compared with $254.1 million in the first six months of 2010. This decrease was primarily driven by a decrease in our coal segment revenues due mostly to favorable hydropower conditions, which displaced our customers’ coal-generated power. Record high levels of snow in the Pacific Northwest displaced power primarily at our Rosebud Mine. Coal revenues also decreased due to flooding conditions which disrupted rail service to our Absaloka Mine and to the expiration of an unprofitable coal contract at our Rosebud Mine. The above decreases in our coal segment revenues were partially offset with an increase in our power segment revenues of $0.9 million related to an increase in megawatt hours sold as a result of shorter planned outages.

Nonoperating Results (including interest expense, other income (expense) and income tax benefit)
Our interest expense for the first six months of 2011 increased to $14.6 million compared with $11.5 million for the first six months of 2010. This increase was primarily due to the higher overall debt levels resulting from the Parent Notes offering.
Our other expense for the first six months of 2011 increased to $2.8 million compared with $0.9 million of income for the first six months of 2010. Excluding the $3.2 million impact of the fair value adjustment on derivatives discussed in Items that Affect Comparability of Our Results, our other expense increased $0.5 million primarily due to gains on sales of securities during the first six months of 2010.
Our income tax benefit for the first six months of 2011 increased to $0.6 million compared with $0.1 million for the first six months of 2010. This increase was due to lower taxable income.
Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Net Income (Loss)
The discussion in “Results of Operations” in 2011 and 2010 includes references to our Adjusted EBITDA results. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are supplemental measures of financial performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are key metrics used by us to assess our operating performance and we believe that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are useful to an investor in evaluating our operating performance because these measures:
    are used widely by investors to measure a company’s operating performance without regard to items excluded from the calculation of such terms, which can vary substantially from company to company depending upon accounting methods and book value of assets, capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired, among other factors; and
    help investors to more meaningfully evaluate and compare the results of our operations from period to period by removing the effect of our capital structure and asset base from our operating results.
Neither EBITDA nor Adjusted EBITDA is a measure calculated in accordance with GAAP. The items excluded from EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are significant in assessing our operating results. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. For example, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA:
    do not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements for capital and major maintenance expenditures or contractual commitments;
    do not reflect income tax expenses or the cash requirements necessary to pay income taxes;
    do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs; and
    do not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on certain of our debt obligations.
In addition, although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements. Other companies in our industry and in other industries may calculate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA differently from the way that we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures. Because of these limitations, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as measures of discretionary cash available to us to invest in the growth of our business. We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and using EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA only as supplemental data.

We anticipate that our cash flows from operations, cash on hand and available borrowing capacity will be sufficient to meet our investing, financing, and working capital requirements for several years.
Parent Notes Offering and Use of Proceeds
On February 4, 2011, we issued the Parent Notes, which are $150.0 million of 10.750% senior secured notes. Our subsidiary, Westmoreland Partners, was a co-issuer of the notes. Interest is due at an annual fixed rate of 10.750% and will be paid in cash semi-annually, in arrears, on February 1 and August 1 of each year which began August 1, 2011. The Parent Notes mature February 1, 2018. They are fully and unconditionally guaranteed by Westmoreland Energy LLC and WRI and their respective subsidiaries (other than Absaloka Coal, LLC) and by certain other subsidiaries.

MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION
AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (CONT.)
We received net proceeds from the sale of the Parent Notes in the offering of approximately $135.0 million after deducting the Initial Purchaser’s discount of $7.5 million and offering costs of $7.5 million. We repaid existing outstanding debt with those proceeds as follows: $52.7 million to repay all outstanding term and revolving line of credit at ROVA, including a make-whole payment of $9.1 million; $20.1 million to repay all outstanding term and revolving line of credit at WRI; and $2.5 million to retire certain of our convertible notes. The holder of our convertible notes agreed to convert the convertible notes not retired into shares of our common stock. In addition, we used $19.9 million of the net proceeds to pay all dividend arrearages on our preferred stock. We will use the remaining net proceeds from the offering for general corporate purposes including the possible acquisition of new reserves. The indenture governing the Parent Notes requires us to offer to redeem the notes on an annual basis with certain Excess Cash Flow (as defined in the indenture), and amounts used for such redemptions will not be available for other purposes.
In connection with the Parent Notes offering, we terminated the WRI and ROVA revolving credit agreements. The WML Credit Agreements remained in place following the offering. Following the Parent Notes offering, we are able to enter into a parent-level revolving credit facility without the consent of the holders of the notes, subject to certain conditions.
Liquidity Limitations and Requirements
The cash at WML is available to us through quarterly distributions. The WML credit agreement requires a debt service account and imposes timing and other restrictions on the ability of WML to distribute funds to us. Cash available from WML is affected beginning in June of this year by payments due in respect of principal on the WML Notes. Following the February 4, 2011 Parent Notes offering, we expect that distributions from ROVA and WRI will comprise a significant source of liquidity for us. The cash at WRM is also available to us through dividends, subject to maintaining a statutory minimum level of capital, which was two hundred and fifty thousand at June 30, 2011.
Our liquidity continues to be affected by payments on our heritage health and pension obligations as follows:
                 
            2011 Remaining  
    Year-to-date     Expected  
    2011 Actual     Amounts  
    (In millions)  
Postretirement medical benefits
  $ 6.3     $ 7.3  
Pension contributions(1)
    2.0       5.4  
CBF premiums
    1.4       1.3  
Workers’ compensation benefits
    0.3       0.7  
     
(1)   Of the 2011 pension contribution, $0.5 million was made through the contribution of Company stock. We expect a significant portion of the remaining pension contributions to be made in Company stock.
In addition to the Parent Notes mentioned above, WML has $122.5 million of fixed rate term debt outstanding at June 30, 2011. Principal on the notes is scheduled to be paid as follows: $5.0 million during the remainder of 2011, $14.0 million in 2012, $18.0 million in 2013, $18.0 million in 2014, $20.0 million in 2015, $20.0 million in 2016, $22.0 million in 2017 and the remaining $5.5 million in 2018. The revolving credit facility has a borrowing limit of $25.0 million and matures in June 2013. At June 30, 2011, WML had no outstanding balance under the revolving credit facility and a letter of credit of $1.9 million supported by the revolving credit facility, leaving it with $23.1 million of unused borrowings. WML’s revolving line of credit is only available to fund the operations of its subsidiaries.

Historical Sources and Uses of Cash
The following is a summary of cash provided by or used in each of the indicated types of activities:
                 
    Six Months Ended  
    June 30,  
    2011     2010  
    (In thousands)  
Cash provided by (used in):
               
Operating activities
  $ 24,320     $ 19,848  
Investing activities
    (14,477 )     (7,896 )
Financing activities
    26,120       (11,785 )
Cash Flow from Operations
Cash provided by operating activities increased $4.5 million in the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared to the six months ended June 30, 2010, primarily due to favorable changes in working capital.
Cash used in investing activities increased $6.6 million in the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared to the six months ended June 30, 2010. Additions to property, plant and equipment were $12.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared to $9.5 million for the same period in 2010. In addition, cash used for restricted investments and bond collateral increased $4.9 million primarily due to debt reserve funding.
Cash provided by financing activities increased by $37.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared to the six months ended June 30, 2010, primarily as a result of the Parent Notes offering.
Our working capital deficit at June 30, 2011 decreased by $27.2 million to $8.6 million compared to a $35.8 million deficit at December 31, 2010 primarily as a result of a $36.0 million increase in cash and cash equivalents mostly due to the Parent Notes offering.
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
In the normal course of business, we are a party to certain off-balance sheet arrangements. These arrangements include financial instruments with off-balance sheet risk, such as bank letters of credit and performance or surety bonds. Surety bonds and letters of credit are issued by financial institutions to third parties to assure the performance of our obligations relating to reclamation, workers’ compensation obligations, postretirement medical benefit obligations, and other obligations. Liabilities related to these arrangements are not reflected in our consolidated balance sheets, and we do not expect any material adverse effects on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows to result from these off-balance sheet arrangements.
There were no material changes to our off-balance sheet arrangements during the six months ended June 30, 2011. Our off-balance sheet arrangements are discussed in Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in our 2010 Form 10-K.
Newly Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

ITEM 3
QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK
Other than the changes noted below, there have been no material changes in our market risk during the six months ended June 30, 2011. For additional information, refer to the “Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk” in Item 7A of our 2010 Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010.
Interest Rate Risk
Our exposure to changes in interest rates results from our debt obligations shown in the table below that are indexed to either the prime rate or LIBOR. Based on balances outstanding as of June 30, 2011, a change of one percentage point in the prime interest rate or LIBOR would increase or decrease interest expense on an annual basis by the amount shown below:

CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
As required by Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, management has evaluated, with the participation of our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of June 30, 2011. Disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable assurance that material information required to be disclosed in the reports we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Disclosure controls and procedures also include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in our reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding our required disclosure. Based on that evaluation, our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, concluded that the disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of such date.
Additionally, there have been no changes in internal control over financial reporting that occurred during our fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2011, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
Please refer to the information contained in Note 15 to the Consolidated Financial Statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and in Part I, Item 3 — Legal Proceedings of our 2010 Form 10-K, which is responsive to this Item 1 and is incorporated herein by reference. There have been no material developments with respect to our legal proceedings previously disclosed in our 2010 Form 10-K.
ITEM 1A
RISK FACTORS
We have disclosed under the heading “Risk Factors” in our 2010 Form 10-K, the risk factors that we believe materially affect our business, financial condition or results of operations. Except as provided below, there have been no material changes from the risk factors previously disclosed. You should carefully consider the risk factors set forth in the 2010 Form 10-K and the other information set forth elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. You should be aware that these risk factors and other information may not describe every risk facing our Company. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deem to be immaterial also may materially adversely affect our business, financial condition and or operating results.
Our dependence on a small group of customers could adversely affect our revenues if such customers reduce or suspend their coal purchases or if they become unable to pay for our coal.
In 2010, approximately 65% of our total revenues were derived from coal sales to four power plants: Colstrip Units 3&4 (24% of our 2010 revenues), Limestone Generating Station (16%) and Colstrip Units 1&2 (13%) and Sherburne County Station (12%). Interruption in the purchases of coal from our operations by our principal customers could significantly affect our revenues. Unscheduled maintenance outages at our customers’ power plants, unseasonably moderate weather, higher-than-anticipated hydro season that results in our key customers not being dispatched or increases in the production of alternative clean-energy generation such as wind power could cause our customers to reduce their purchases. In addition, new environmental regulations could compel our customer of the Jewett Mine to purchase more compliance coal, reducing or eliminating our sales to them. Four of our five mines are dedicated to supplying customers located adjacent to or near the mines, and these mines may have difficulty identifying alternative purchasers of their coal if their existing customers suspend or terminate their purchases. The reduction in the sale of our coal would adversely affect our operating results. In addition, if any of our major customers became unable to pay for contracted amounts of coal, our results of operation and liquidity would be adversely affected.
Additionally, certain of our long-term contracts are set to expire in the next several years. Our contracts with the Sherburne County Station are three-year rolling contracts, with one-third of the tonnage expiring on an annual basis. Our contract with Coyote Station, located adjacent to our Beulah mine, expires in May 2016. We are currently working with the Coyote Station owners in a competitive bid process for another long-term supply contract. Our contract with Colstrip Units 3&4 expires in December 2019. Should we be unable to successfully renew any or all of these expiring contracts, the reduction in the sale of our coal would adversely affect our operating results and liquidity and could result in significant impairments to the affected mine should the mine be unable to execute a new long-term coal supply agreement.
Similarly, interruption in the purchase of power by Dominion could also negatively affect our revenues. In 2010, the sale of power by ROVA to Dominion accounted for approximately 17% of our consolidated revenues. Although ROVA supplies power to Dominion under long-term power purchase agreements, if demand for electricity from Dominion’s customers was materially reduced or if Dominion was to become insolvent or otherwise unable or unwilling to pay for the power produced by ROVA in a timely manner, it could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations, financial condition, and liquidity.

UNREGISTERED SALES OF EQUITY SECURITIES AND USE OF PROCEEDS
On May 18, 2011, the Company made contributions totaling 25,000 shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Shares”) to one of the Company’s employee pension plans to satisfy certain funding obligations. The Shares were valued at 25,000 shares at $17.97 or $0.4 million in the aggregate. The Shares were contributed to the plans in lieu of cash contributions in private placement transactions made in reliance upon the exemption from registration provided by Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The Company will not receive any proceeds from the contribution.

Section 1503. Reporting Requirements Regarding Coal or Other Mine Safety.
On July 21, 2010, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, or the Act, was enacted. Section 1503 of the Act contains new reporting requirements regarding coal or other mine safety. Westmoreland Coal Company is committed to providing a safe workplace for all of our employees. Recently, two of our mines received the Montana Governor’s Award for Health and Safety, one in the Large Mining category and one in the Small Mining category. In addition, our Beulah Mine received the Lignite Energy Council’s Safety Excellence Award for the lowest accident incident rate in the lignite industry for 2010 and the Rocky Mountain Coal Mining Institute Surface Mine Safety Award for the surface mine with the lowest reportable rate of incidents in the eight-member state region in 2010. Our other mines had excellent safety records in 2010, which continued through the second quarter of 2011. We continue to engage proactively with federal and state agencies in support of measures that can improve the safety and well-being of our employees.
The operation of our mines is subject to regulation by the federal Mine Safety and Health Administration, or MSHA, under the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977, or the Mine Act. MSHA inspects our mines on a regular basis and issues various citations and orders when it believes a violation has occurred under the Mine Act. Below, we have included information regarding certain mining safety and health citations and orders that MSHA has issued with respect to our coal mining operations. In evaluating this information, consideration should be given to factors such as: (i) the number of citations and orders will vary depending on the size of the coal mine, (ii) the number of citations and orders issued will vary from inspector-to-inspector and mine-to-mine, and (iii) citations and orders can be contested and appealed, and in that process, may be reduced in severity and amount, and are sometimes dismissed.
