ArcelorMittal adds Fortiform 980 Extragal Steel Grade for Further Auto Weight Savings

As automakers are challenged to improve safety and fuel economy, they continue to search for new materials to meet higher performance demand of body structures. ArcelorMittal is joining our automotive partners in taking that challenge seriously, adding to its family of advanced high strength steels (AHSS) for the auto industry with the development of Fortiform® 980 Extragal® (-GI) in North America. With the second generation of steels, body engineers had some limitations in using the higher strength grades for parts that play a role in energy absorption or parts that were complex in shape. The use of Fortiform® eliminates this limitation. Fortiform® 980 Extragal® is compatible with the current welding systems used in the industry. The product was engineered to mitigate the challenges typical of higher strength AHSS such as liquid metal embrittlement and optimum weld strength. ArcelorMittal has studied four welding types of resistance spot-welding, laser welding, MIG brazing and gas metal arc welding with no signs of surface cracks in critical zones.

Hassan Ghassemi-Armaki and Qaiser Khan presented details of ArcelorMittal’s new Fortiform® 980 Extragal® steel grade at the 2019 Great Designs in Steel conference earlier this year. The new steel grade was showcased in the presentation titled “On the advantages of Fortiform® 980 GI - A third generation AHSS grade with superior weldability” presented by authors, Ghassemi-Armaki, Khan and Shri Aditya Varanasi from ArcelorMittal USA, at the 2019 Great Designs in Steels (GDIS) conference earlier this year. The presentation also discusses the axial crush results of this grade for different gauges and weld pitch combinations.

Fortiform® 980 Extragal® joins grades Fortiform® 1050 (available in Europe only) and Fortiform® 1180. The successful launch of these AHSS grades over the past six years is further proof that steel is the most sustainable, adaptable and most affordable material to help automakers produce lighter vehicles and achieve their weight reduction targets on-time without compromising strength and safety. It demonstrates that ArcelorMittal has an unwavering focus on delivering value to the industry and the products it needs into the future.

Fortiform® 980 Extragal® is currently available in North America only. It will be launched in Europe soon.

Metinvest Issues Dual-Currency Bonds & Extends Maturity Profile

Metinvest has successfully completed the transaction to extend the maturity of its outstanding Eurobonds. The Group’s debut dual-currency offering, consisting of tranches denominated in US dollars and euros, has helped to effectively extend the maturity of USD 440 million of the USD 944,515,000 Eurobonds due in 2023 by 6.5 years, while the net proceeds from the deal amounted to roughly USD350 million. The deal received strong support from the global investor community and top European financial institutions.

The Group conducted two simultaneously interdependent transactions:
A tender offer for the USD 944,515,000 Eurobonds due in 2023 to purchase for cash up to USD440 million of the paper
A new dual-currency Eurobond offering, including a USD500 million 10-year tranche at 7.75% per annum and a EUR300 million long 5-year tranche at 5.625% per annum

Notably, the dollar-denominated tranche is Metinvest’s longest to date with the lowest yield ever secured by the Group. The debut euro-denominated tranche was issued at the lowest yield ever achieved by any Ukrainian issuers in euros (including the sovereign), and helped Metinvest to diversify the currency mix of its debt portfolio. It also helped to significantly diversify the investor base and further improve investor quality.

Most of the bond investors came from the US, the UK and continental Europe. The investor distribution by region for the dollar-denominated tranche was: US – 55%, Europe – 22%, UK – 21% and CIS – 2%. The euro-denominated tranche’s distribution was: UK – 39%, Europe – 29%, US – 23% and Asia – 9%.

Deutsche Bank, Natixis and UniCredit acted as Joint Bookrunners of the new bond offering and Joint Dealer Managers for the tender offer. On the legal side, Allen & Overy and Avellum advised Metinvest, while Linklaters and Sayenko Kharenko supported the bookrunners.
