The article analyzes the main trends in the development of the coal industry in Russia, including the dynamics of coal production, the volume and structure of investment in fixed capital, the dynamics of coal exports. The prerequisites for maintaining these trends are indicated. To improve the efficiency of the companies in the industry, a two-criteria optimization model of the capital structure was built. The presented model allows, having a forecast of the parameters of the organization's financial statements, to obtain the optimal capital structure of the enterprise for the forecast period. To solve this model, we apply the mathematical method for finding the Pareto-optimal solution, which is used in solving multicriteria problems. This model was applied to the coal company of the Novosibirsk region, which is the largest producer and exporter of high-quality anthracite. The optimal ratio of own and borrowed capital is calculated, recommendations are given to achieve these indicators.
