NEW YORK, May 2, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz Haudek Grossman & Gross LLP is investigating potential claims on behalf of investors of International Coal Group, Inc. ("International Coal" or the "Company") concerning the proposed acquisition of International Coal by Arch Coal, Inc. ("Arch") in an all-cash transaction valued at $3.4 billion.

The investigation concerns whether the Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties in their consideration of a fair and adequate stock price  for International Coal shareholders. Under the terms of the agreement, International Coal shareholders will receive $14.60 per share. However, metallurgical coal has been in high demand in recent months as producers try to meet steel demand in China and India. This acquisition is timed opportunistically at a valuation below the average net income and revenue multiples of recent similar transactions.

International Coal shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Gustavo Bruckner, Esq. at gfbruckner@pomlaw.com or 212-661-1100 or toll free at 888-476-6529, ext. 302. Shareholders may also contact Rachelle R. Boyle at rrboyle@pomlaw.com or 212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 237.
