The Powder River Basin producer entered a forbearance agreement with its lenders, according to the Securities Exchange Commission filing, allowing Cloud Peak until May 1 to make the payment of $1.8 million before defaulting.

Additionally, Cloud Peak has an interest payment of $17.4 million due on May 1, although the producer may take advantage of a 30-day grace period.

The producer currently remains engaged in a review of its capital structure and is focused on restructuring alternatives, according to the filing, while mining operations and reclamation activity are expected to continue as normal.
