(Official Notice)
Shareholders are reminded that the company previously advised that in order to address the current challenges as outlined in its consolidated financial statements for the six months ended 30 June 2017 announcement released on 27 July 2017, the company was in the process of exploring several additional initiatives, including additional cost saving interventions, assessing the profitability of various product lines and the implementation of structural changes (restructuring) in the next six months.



All options are being explored and the company has no option but to also review its staffing levels.Consequently, the company will be commencing with a consultation process in terms of section 189(3) of the Labour Relations Act 66 of 1995, based on its operational requirements which relate to its economic and structural needs. It is difficult to estimate the number of employees who may eventually be affected as a result of the proposed restructuring and efficiency measures (but it is anticipated to be more than 50 employees) as this is subject to the outcome of the consultation process and other mechanisms that will be explored to minimise the impact.



ArcelorMittal South Africa continues to engage constructively with Government and organised labour representatives in an attempt to reduce the impact of the changes, particularly with regard to potential job losses. To this end, the company will first consider implementing alternatives before retrenchments are implemented. As South Africa?s leading steel producer, the sustainability of the local steel industry and the prevention of job losses remains an important concern and the company will continue to engage its stakeholders to find collaborative and lasting solutions to the challenges faced by the industry. Shareholders will be informed once the process has been finalised.

Dividends

No dividends declared for the six months ended 30 June 2017.



Company outlook for H2 2017

Volatility in the rand/US dollar exchange rate will continue to have a material impact on our financial results. ArcelorMittal has implemented various initiatives to return the group to profitability and to generate positive cash flows. As already indicated, the company will also be looking to implement a number of interventions to address the challenges that it faces.



In the second half of the year, domestic steel demand is expected to remain subdued due to low economic growth and lack of infrastructure spend. The flat steel business will benefit from the implementation of safeguard duties in the second half of the year. The long products business could improve depending on coal and scrap prices and as the full benefit of the heavy sections and rail volumes is realised. Export markets are likely to be more resilient; however, projections are that Africa will experience a growth in demand in the order of 2.3%.

Shareholders are advised that Arcmittal is finalising its reviewed condensed consolidated financial statements for the six months ended 30 June 2017.



It should be noted that the loss per share is expected to increase from 44 cents per share to a loss within a range of 198 and 207 cents per share (350% and 370% change) when compared to the prior year. The headline loss per share is also expected to increase from 45 cents per share to a headline loss per share within a range of 143 and 152 cents per share (218% and 238% change), when compared to the prior year



The higher loss was primarily due to the lower margins. The higher steel prices did not fully compensate for the higher raw material costs namely coal and iron ore. Operational incidents; impairments and the strengthening of the rand against the US dollar also negatively impacted our results.



In order to address these challenges the Company is in the process of exploring several initiatives, include additional cost cutting interventions, assessing the profitability of various product lines and the implementation of structural changes in the next 6 months. Further information will be provided as soon as the necessary investigations and decisions have been finalised.



The Group?s reviewed condensed consolidated financial statements for the six months ended 30 June 2017 will be released on the Stock Exchange News Service of the JSE on 27 July 2017 with a presentation in Johannesburg on the same day.

In the SENS announcement released on 10 February 2017 shareholders were advised that the Fair Pricing Principles for flat steel products had been finalised and was implemented by the company, but remains subject to final government approval.



The company advised that the Fair Pricing Principles have been approved by government and the agreement in this regard between the company and government has been signed by the Department of Trade and Industry and Department of Economic Development. In terms thereof the price for flat steel products will be based on an import weighted basket price. Quarterly monitoring of the import weighted basket, and compliance with the pricing mechanism for all flat steel products will be the responsibility of the steel task team comprising of government, the primary and downstream industry, under the auspices of the International Trade Administration Commission (ITAC).

Outlook

In 2017 domestic steel demand is expected to remain subdued due to low economic growth and lack of infrastructure spend which will be mitigated by import substitution and new products, namely heavy structural products from Evraz Highveld. Export markets are likely to be more resilient, however, authoritative projections being that Africa will experience demand growth in the order of 4%. The achievement of tangible progress on safeguards is of vital importance for the reduction of imports that continue to plague the sustainability of the primary steel sector in South Africa and the impact on tens of thousands of jobs that depend on it. Volatility in the rand/US dollar exchange rate will continue to have a material impact on our financial results.

09-Feb-2017
(Official Notice)
Sishen Iron Ore Company (Pty) Ltd. (?SIOC?), a subsidiary of Kumba Iron Ore Ltd. (?Kumba?), and ArcelorMittal South Africa Ltd. (?AMSA?) announced that they have entered into an agreement to transfer Thabazimbi mine (?the Mine?) to AMSA (?the Transfer?).



Until 2014 Thabazimbi was a captive mine owned and run by SIOC, but supplying ore exclusively to and funded by AMSA. As a result AMSA is accountable for 96% of the Mine?s current rehabilitation liability, with SIOC responsible for the site?s management and the remaining liability. The transfer would simplify this arrangement by making AMSA solely responsible for Thabazimbi?s closure and rehabilitation.



Mining operations at Thabazimbi ceased on 1 September 2016. The identified assets and liabilities of the Mine will be transferred at a purchase consideration of R1 plus the assumed liabilities. The remaining 63 SIOC employees currently engaged in mine rehabilitation and the preparation and finalisation of the Mine closure plan will transfer to AMSA on comparable terms, conditions and benefits.



The needs of the Thabazimbi community were identified and have been incorporated into the Mine?s social closure plan. AMSA, as part of its current financial obligation, will take over the entire social closure plan and will be responsible for the execution, implementation and funding of these identified projects while SIOC will retain a right of oversight.



The transfer is dependent on certain conditions being met, most notably: competition authority approval, cession of the Thabazimbi mining rights in terms of section 11 of the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act (?MPRDA?), and a satisfactory due diligence investigation by AMSA. On fulfilment of these conditions, the employees, assets and liabilities will transfer to AMSA. If the conditions are not satisfied by 28 April 2017 (or a later date agreed to by the companies), the agreement will lapse and SIOC will proceed with the closure of the Mine.



The transfer is below the JSE transaction thresholds for both companies and this announcement is for information purposes only.

The loss per share is expected to decrease from 2 152 cents to a loss within a range of 438 and 448 cents per share (80% and 79% change). The headline loss per share is also expected to decrease from 1 338 cents to a headline loss per share within a range of 239 and 249 cents a share (82% and 81% change).



The improvement was primarily due to non - recurrence of the once off items in 2015 totalling R2 558 million (consisting mainly of the Competition Commission penalty, closure of Thabazimbi mine and the derecognised payment in advance) and impairment of R4 254 million (consisting mainly of Saldanha and the Vaal Melt shop in Vereeniging) as well as higher steel sales prices and sustainable cost improvements achieved in 2016.



The financial information on which this trading statement is based has not been reviewed or reported on by the Company?s external auditors.

Shareholders have been informed previously that ArcelorMittal South Africa was investigating the possibility of supplying blooms and slabs to Highveld for processing into heavy structural steel.



ArcelorMittal advised that a contract manufacturing agreement (?Agreement?), which is still subject to certain conditions precedent, has now been concluded between ArcelorMittal South Africa, Highveld and HSM (a subsidiary of Highveld) in terms of which ArcelorMittal South Africa will supply blooms and slabs to HSM for processing into heavy structural steel. It is also dependent on the implementation of duties on the products to be manufactured in the heavy section mill, and the application that has been submitted to the International Trade Administration Commission (ITAC) in this regard will need to be finalised.



This will result in the re-opening of the Highveld heavy section mill by the Business Rescue Practitioner, thus making available the supply of heavy structural products into the South African market.



The re-opening of the heavy section mill is a positive development and will result in the added benefit of creating further jobs.



The Agreement will operate for an initial period of two years with an option to extend for a further period of one year.



ArcelorMittal South Africa also has an option to purchase the business of HSM and the land or the shares in HSM, subject to certain further regulatory and governance approvals that may be required.



The detail regarding implementation is being finalised but it is envisaged that the heavy sections mill will begin operations in 2017.



This important milestone was made possible with the support of various stakeholders, for which support we are all grateful.

(Official Notice)
The South African market has been particularly impacted by the slowdown in local demand for steel products, which has resulted in increased imports of Chinese flat and long products into a declining local market. In this economic climate and with the ongoing power, labour and consumable cost pressures, ArcMittal faces a difficult challenge.



ArcMittal has been implementing various measures to improve its operating and financial performance, including a restructuring of the corporate services departments. This process was concluded in 2015.The harsh reality is that the profitability of the operations remain under pressure. It was envisaged that a larger portion of the additional volumes of steel from the recently relined Newcastle furnace would be consumed domestically. However, since the commissioning of the Newcastle furnace, the local market has been affected by a surge in imports and local demand, combined with a challenging export market, has been weaker than expected.



This has resulted in the need to consider additional cost saving and optimisation initiatives. Shareholders are advised that ArcMittal will be exploring further initiatives to ensure its sustainability. While the closure of some plant cannot be excluded should circumstances not change, the immediate priority will be a focus on the alternatives that can be implemented to avoid such a situation. In order to optimise the long steel business, the company is also considering various options, including moving all billet production from its Vereeniging Works to the newly relined and more efficient Newcastle furnace. The impact of such an initiative is being assessed together with other alternatives.



In this regard ArcMittal will be engaging with its stakeholders, including organized labour and undertaking an industrial footprint review of its Vereeniging Works with a view to considering alternatives and deciding on whether mothballing some of its plants and placing others under care and maintenance would be a prudent decision. This initial process is expected to be completed by the end of August 2015. Should a final decision be taken to proceed along this path, it will not be taken lightly.



As South Africa?s leading steel producer, the sustainability of the local steel industry remains ArcMittal?s primary concern and the company will continue to engage its stakeholders to find lasting solutions to the challenges faced by the industry.

(Media Comment)
Business Day reported that ArcMittal saved R127 million in 2012 by investing R21 million in energy-saving initiatives in 2011 and at its Saldanha Bay plant in 2012. The facility has been transformed into one of the group's lowest cost producers as a results of introducing a world-class manufacturing programme that optimises energy management. A study by the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation stated that should current conditions be kept constant at Saldanha the group could save R362 million by 2016.

Furthermore, headline earnings per share came in at 50cps (2012: loss of 42cps).



Outlook

Domestic sales are expected to be significantly lower due to the normal seasonal slowdown and general weakness in the domestic market. Accordingly, earnings are expected to be lower than in the preceding quarter.

(Official Notice)
Shareholders are referred to the announcements released on SENS on 27 September 2013 and are advised that due to the conclusion of the agreement between Remittal and Sishen Iron Ore Company (Pty) Ltd, a subsidiary of Kumba Iron Ore Ltd. ("Kumba") as released in a joint announcement with Kumba on SENS on 5 November 2013, caution is no longer required to be exercised by shareholders when dealing in their ArcelorMittal securities.

(Official Notice)
Shareholders are advised that Ms Thandi Orleyn has resigned from the board of ArcMittal ("board") as an independent non-executive director with effect from 1 October 2013.



The board further advised shareholders that Ms Nomavuso Patience Mnxasana and Mr Jacob Modise have been appointed as independent non-executive directors with effect from 1 October 2013.
27-Sep-2013
(Official Notice)
Shareholders were previously advised that the Sishen Iron Ore Company (Pty) Ltd. ("SIOC") and ArcMitta (collectively "the Parties") had reached agreement on the basis of the new interim pricing agreement governing the terms and conditions on which SIOC will sell iron ore to ArcMittal from the Sishen Mine with effect from 1 January 2013 until 31 December 2013 or until the conclusion of the legal processes in relation to the 2001 Sishen Supply Agreement (whichever is sooner).



Pursuant to the objective of ensuring long term stability and security of iron ore supply, shareholders are advised that discussions are underway on the possibility of a new supply agreement for iron ore from Kumba's mines including Sishen and Thabazimbi.



Shareholders were advised to exercise caution when dealing in ArcMittal's securities until a further announcement is made.

(C)
Revenue decreased to R15.9 billion (R17.8 billion). Profit from operations fell to R233 million (R260 million). Net attributable loss for the period was recorded at R140 million (profit of R102 million). In addition, headline loss per share was at 31cps (headline earnings per share of 26cps).



Outlook

While international prices appear to have stabilised, lingering weakness in the domestic economy will continue to negatively affect steel demand. Domestic sales are expected to remain flat and any increase in steel prices will be more than offset by increasing costs in particular, higher winter electricity tariffs and iron ore. Accordingly, earnings are expected to be lower than the preceding quarter.
29-May-2013
(Official Notice)
The board of directors advised that at the Annual General Meeting of shareholders of the company held on 29 May 2013, other than the special resolution authorising the increase in the Chairman's fees which was withdrawn, the ordinary and special resolutions as set out in the notice of the Annual General Meeting contained in the Company's Annual Report for the financial year ended 31 December 2012, were duly passed by the requisite majority votes.



Shareholders are further advised that Mr Malcolm Macdonald retired as an independent non-executive director and Chairman of the Audit - Risk Committee at the Annual General Meeting. The Board further announced the following changes to the Board Committees with effect from Wednesday 29 May 2013:

* Mr Chris Murray appointed as Chairman of the Audit and Risk Committee; and

* Ms Fran du Plessis appointed as Chairman of the Safety, Health and Environment Committee.
10-May-2013
(C)
Revenue for the quarter fell to R7.8 billion (2012: R9.1 billion). Loss from operations came in at R208 million (2012: profit of R458 million), while loss attributable to owners of the company was recorded at R275 million (2012: profit of R279 million). Furthermore, headline loss per share was 67cps (2012: earnings of 71cps).



Outlook

ArcMittal expects a turnaround from the net loss realised in the first quarter to positive earnings in second quarter underpinned by stable market demand, recovery of production back to normal levels and higher sales volumes. International steel prices are expected to remain subdued. The movement in the rand/US dollar exchange rate has an important bearing on the company's earnings.

(Official Notice)
Shareholders are referred to the announcement released on SENS on 28 March 2013 advising that the Supreme Court of Appeals ("SCA") has dismissed the appeal by the Department of Mineral Resources ("DMR") and Imperial Crown Trading 289 ("ICT") against the North Gauteng High Court judgment, delivered in December 2011, which held that SIOC was granted exclusive rights to mine iron ore at the Sishen mine in 2008 and set aside the granting of prospecting rights to ICT. Shareholders are advised that both ICT and the DMR have lodged applications for leave to appeal to the Constitutional Court against the decision of the SCA. Shareholders will be kept informed of any further material developments.

(Official Notice)
Shareholders are referred to the announcements released on SENS on 11 February, 22 February and 4 March 2013, with reference to a fire that occurred at ArcMittal's Vanderbijlpark Works on 9 February 2013. The fire caused severe damage to three Basic Oxygen Furnaces (BOF's) in the steel making facility. Repairs to the steel making facility have been completed and the three BOF's have been re-commissioned and are now fully operational.



An assessment into the root cause of the fire has been completed and results reveal that the operation was affected by an unforeseen malfunction of the sensor and computer software. ArcMittal will disclose the overall cost implication of the fire accident once all assessments are finalised.

The SCA has thus upheld the relief which was sought by ArcMittal South Africa in the High Court proceedings. The ruling paves the way for ArcMittal and SIOC to resume the arbitration process that was postponed pending the outcome of the SCA ruling.
28-Mar-2013
(Official Notice)

(Official Notice)
Shareholders were referred to the announcement released on SENS on 24 October 2012 informing shareholders of the notice received from GDARD instructing ArcMittal to cease operation of certain units at its Vanderbijlpark plant, alleging that these units do not comply with certain conditions of the air emission licence for the Vanderbijlpark plant ("the compliance notice").



Shareholders are advised that following written submissions and site inspection, GDARD has withdrawn the compliance notice and confirmed that it is satisfied that ArcMittal's Vanderbijlpark Works has fully complied with its obligations in this regard.
22-Feb-2013
(Official Notice)
Shareholders are referred to the announcement released on SENS on 11 February 2013 and are advised that ArcelorMittal South Africa has advanced the assessments relating to the fire that occurred at its Vanderbijlpark Works on 9 February 2013, while good progress has been made to replace some of the lost production. Various ArcelorMittal Group plants have been contacted with a request to supply semi-finished products. Orders have been confirmed and steel dispatches from these plants will start soon. We expect the arrival of these products in about 6 weeks? time.



ArcelorMittal South Africa is diverting more steel to the domestic customers from Saldanha Works to the extent of about 40000 tonnes per month, and the Company is also exploring the possibility of increasing production at this facility. While force majeure remains in effect, customers are placing orders for March and April 2013, and ArcelorMittal South Africa is confident it will be in a position to fulfil most of these requirements following the mitigation actions taken.



Assessment of the root causes of the fire and the recovery process have been undertaken with the assistance of ArcelorMittal Group experts. It is expected that some part of the steelmaking operations can resume at this facility during March 2013 with completion now estimated by end of April 2013, at which point the plant will be back in full production. Over the last week, the Company has engaged with numerous stakeholders including employees, customers, suppliers, provincial and national government, unions, local municipality and communities.



An assessment of the potential financial impact should be available towards the end of the month. The Company is working closely with its insurers in this process. The Company can confirm that the Gauteng Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (GDARD) today indicated its intention to withdraw the compliance notice issued on 22 October 2012 as the Company has furnished satisfactory evidence of its compliance with the conditions stipulated therein.
11-Feb-2013
(Official Notice)
Shareholders were advised that on Saturday 9 February 2013 a fire occurred at the Vanderbijlpark plant which caused extensive damage to the steel making facilities resulting in an immediate shutdown of the facilities. No injuries were reported as a result of the incident.



Once detailed assessments of the damage and required repairs have been carried out, the potential loss of sales and estimate of the time to repair will be determined.



Assistance from other ArcMittal group plants is being sought to establish alternative sources of supply in order to mitigate the negative impact on our customers. Moreover, support from key suppliers is being enlisted to ensure speedy repair of the damaged facilities. Our insurers have also been notified and we will be working with them to assess the potential losses.



A letter declaring force majeure will be issued to customers within the next 24 hours.



A further SENS announcement will be released to advise shareholders as more details become available.
08-Feb-2013
(Official Notice)
The JSE wished to advise that the auditors reviewed report on ArcMittal's provisional results for the year ended 31 December 2012 contains a modification. Shareholders are advised to refer to the provisional results to ascertain the exact nature of the modification. Accordingly, the company's listing on the JSE's trading system will be annotated with an "E" to indicate the modification.

06-Feb-2013
(C)
Revenue for the year grew to R32.3 billion (R31.5 billion) whilst loss from operations plummeted was R477 million (profit of R297 million). Loss attributable to owners was R508 million (profit of R8 million). In addition, headline loss per share was 129cps (13cps).



Dividend

No dividends were declared for the year ended 31 December 2012.



Outlook for quarter one 2013

The group expects a turnaround from the loss-making position realised in the previous quarter to break-even in the first quarter. This view is supported by a modest rise in international steel prices and domestic demand. Sales volumes are expected to be higher amid restocking in the market and increased production volumes. Commercial coke sales on the other hand will be down due to lower production by some ferrochrome producers participating in Eskom's electricity buy-back programme.
24-Jan-2013
(Official Notice)
The board of directors of ArcMittal ("the board") announced that Mr Johnson Mfundiso Njeke will retire as independent non-executive director and chairman of the board on 4 February 2013. Mr Mpho Makwana will join the board as independent non-executive director with effect from 5 February 2013 and succeed Mr Njeke as chairman.
13-Dec-2012
(Official Notice)
Shareholders were referred to the announcement released on SENS on 16 October 2012 advising shareholders that ArcMittal South Africa and Sishen Iron Ore Company (Pty) Ltd. ("SIOC") were engaged in negotiations with regards to iron ore supply to ArcMittal South Africa for the period from 1 January 2013 until the finalisation of the arbitration between the parties.



Shareholders were advised that an agreement has been reached between the parties to govern the terms and conditions on which SIOC will sell iron ore to ArcMittal South Africa from the Sishen Mine with effect from 1 January 2013 ("the new interim pricing agreement"). The key terms of the new interim pricing agreement are as follows:

*SIOC will supply a maximum annual volume of 4.8 million tonnes of iron ore to ArcMittal South Africa at a weighted average price of USD65 per tonne (calculated on a FOR ex Sishen Mine gate basis);

*the other terms and conditions will be materially the same as those which were contained in the extended interim pricing agreement which had been agreed for the period 1 August 2012 to 31 December 2012 ("the extended interim pricing agreement"); and

*the new interim pricing agreement will endure for a period of 12 months until 31 December 2013 or until the conclusion of the legal processes in relation to the 2001 Sishen Supply Agreement (whichever is sooner).



Shareholders will be informed of further developments in this regard.
20-Nov-2012
(Official Notice)
The board of directors of ArcMittal ("the board") notified its shareholders of changes to its executive management team with effect from 2 January 2013.



In order to strengthen the company's capabilities, the board has appointed Matthias Wellhausen as Chief Financial Officer while freeing Rudolph Torlage to focus on projects of a strategic nature.



In compliance with the Listings Requirements of the JSE Ltd., Mr Wellhausen will be appointed to the board as an Executive Director to perform the role of Chief Financial Officer. Mr Torlage will retire as Executive Director on the same date. Mr Torlage will continue to report to the Chief Executive Officer as General Manager: Strategic Projects. In this role, he will continue to drive the arbitration process to resolve the impasse over the Sishen iron ore supply contract together with a number of other key projects for the group.
31-Oct-2012
(C)
Revenue for the quarter fell slightly to R7.61 billion (R7.62 billion). Loss from operations was lower at R155 million (loss of R347 million). Loss attributable to owners of the company narrowed to R148 million (loss of R462 million). Furthermore, headline loss per share improved to 42cps (headline loss of 115cps).



Dividends

No dividends were declared for the quarter.



Outlook

The earnings loss for the fourth quarter is expected to be substantially more than quarter three due to the seasonal slowdown in domestic demand during December, aggravated by production losses following an extended taphole repair of the blast furnace at Newcastle Works, partially offset by lower prices for some raw materials especially, imported coal and pellets. The recent weakening of the ZAR/USD exchange rate, to the extent sustained, will have a positive impact.
24-Oct-2012
(Official Notice)
Shareholders were advised that ArcMittal received a notice from the Gauteng Department of Agriculture and Rural Development ("GDARD") on 22 October 2012 instructing the company to cease operation of certain units at its Vanderbijlpark plant. GDARD alleges that these units do not comply with certain conditions of the air emission licence for the Vanderbijlpark plant.



ArcMittal is of the view that the notice is defective both in terms of administrative justice as well as factually. The company is currently complying with the conditions as contained in the air emission licence. ArcelorMittal South Africa intends to object to the notice and will issue an application to suspend the notice pending the finalisation of the objection to the contents of the notice. The company is confident that it will successfully challenge the notice.



ArcMittal takes its environmental obligations seriously. It has invested in a number of environmental projects to improve its compliance to environmental regulations and air quality within the Vaal Priority Area. These projects include:

* Completion of the EAF dust extraction system at the Vereeniging plant to abate fugitive emissions that escaped from the facility at a cost of R230 million;

* Recent completion of the emission abatement system for the Sinter plant at Vanderbijlpark Works which will reduce particulate emissions from this facility by 80% at a cost of R250 million.



Shareholders will be kept informed of any further developments in this matter.
16-Oct-2012
(Official Notice)
Shareholders are referred to the announcement released on SENS on 23 August 2012 advising that after extensive negotiations, it has been agreed that SIOC will sell to ArcMittal a maximum amount of 1.5 million tonnes of iron ore from Sishen Mine until 31 December 2012, on materially the same terms and conditions as applied under the extended interim pricing agreement.



Shareholders are advised that these negotiations and engagements are continuing to take place with the assistance of an appointed mediator. The mediation process which is confidential and remains on-going is being facilitated by the Department of Trade and Industry. Shareholders will be kept informed of any further developments.
08-Oct-2012
(Official Notice)
SIOC supplies iron ore to ArcelorMittal South Africa. On Friday 5 October 2012 SIOC issued a force majeure notice informing ArcMittal that its supply obligations will be suspended due to unprotected industrial action at its Sishen mine which affects production and operations. The duration of the force majeure is unknown, but SIOC anticipates that it might endure for approximately two weeks.



The ArcMittal Saldanha plant will be negatively affected if the above continues for more than one week and a half as it has stockpiles to continue its operation for a limited period. The other plants have enough stockpiles and alternatives should the industrial action continue for an extended period. Shareholders will be updated as the company get appraised on the developments by SIOC.



Shareholders are further advised of potential operational disruptions which might arise as a result of the current transport strike. The nature of these potential operational disruptions will be disclosed once these have been firmed up or become clearer.

(Official Notice)
Shareholders are referred to the announcement released on SENS on 1 August 2012 advising that negotiations with SIOC on the extension of the interim pricing agreement between ArcelorMittal South Africa and SIOC (which expired on 31 July 2012) were continuing as the parties had not yet reached agreement.



Shareholders are advised that after extensive negotiations, it has been agreed that SIOC will sell to ArcMittal South Africa a maximum amount of 1.5 million tonnes of iron ore from Sishen Mine until 31 December 2012, on materially the same terms and conditions as applied under the extended interim pricing agreement. This supply for the remainder of 2012 will be in full and final settlement of any claimed entitlement by ArcelorMittal South Africa to Shortfall tonnage incurred during the currency of the Interim Supply Agreement concluded in 2010 and as extended in May 2011.



Shareholders are further advised that SIOC and the Company are continuing to engage with one another, with the assistance of a mediator who is to be facilitated by the Department of Trade and Industry, for the continued supply of iron ore after 31 December 2012 and until the finalisation of the arbitration between the parties regarding the status of the 2011 Sishen Supply Agreement.
01-Aug-2012
(Official Notice)
Shareholders are notified that the board of directors of the company has resolved to propose that the shareholders of the company consider a special resolution ("the Special Resolution"). The Special Resolution pertains to the approval of the remuneration which the company wishes to pay its non-executive directors for their services as directors of the company, as required by section 66(9) of the Act, with effect from 1 May 2012.

01-Aug-2012
(Official Notice)
Shareholders were reminded that the dispute with Sishen Iron Ore Company (Pty) Ltd. (''SIOC'') and ArcMittal relating to the validity of the iron ore supply agreement has been referred for arbitration and that negotiations were underway to extend or renew the existing interim pricing agreement between ArcMittal and SIOC which expired on 31 July 2012.



Shareholders were advised that negotiations with SIOC on an extension of the agreement were continuing as the parties have not yet reached agreement. ArcMittal South Africa does not anticipate any disruption to its operations while negotiations continue. Shareholders will be informed once an agreement has been reached.
25-Jul-2012
(C)
Revenue increased to R17.8 billion (R16.6 billion). Profit from operations more than halved to R260 million (R929 million). Net attributable profit for the period declined markedly to R102 million (R654 million). In addition, headline earnings on a per share basis sunk to 26c (166cps).



Outlook

Due to a further deterioration in market conditions, third quarter financial results are expected to extend the headline loss incurred in second quarter on the back of lower steel prices and a further decline in domestic demand, partly offset by improved commercial coke sales. Mitigating the expected loss is a potential insurance pay-out resulting from claims currently in the process of finalisation. Movements in the exchange rate will also have an important impact.
16-May-2012
(Official Notice)
The board of directors advise that at the annual general meeting of shareholders of the company held on 16 May 2012, the ordinary and special resolutions as set out in the notice of the annual general meeting contained in the company's integrated annual report 31 December 2011, were duly passed by the requisite majority votes.

Outlook

Earnings for the second quarter are expected to be substantially lower than the previous quarter due to a decline in domestic demand, softer steel prices, higher costs such as electricity and transport and a drop in sales of commercial coke due to the usual shutdown by the ferrochrome industry during the winter months.
30-Mar-2012
(Official Notice)
Shareholders are advised that the annual financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2011, forming part of ArcMittal South Africa's annual report, will be dispatched to shareholders.

26-Oct-2011
(Official Notice)
Shareholders were advised that Mr Johan Fourie has tendered his resignation as chief operating officer ("COO") with effect from 31 December 2011. The board announced the appointment of Dr Hans-Ludwig Rosenstock as the new COO with effect from 1 January 2012.

26-Sep-2011
(Official Notice)
Shareholders were referred to the announcement dated 12 August 2011, informing them that a structural failure had occurred in the gas cleaning plant at ArcMittal's Newcastle facility, which resulted in the dust catcher partially collapsing.



At this stage, the repairs are progressing according to plan. Installation of a new cyclone which has arrived in South Africa from one of the company's sister plants in France, is expected to be completed at the end of November 2011 with recommissioning of the furnace planned for the first week of December. The company has updated its calculations and the latest estimate is a loss of 445 000 tonnes as a result of the incident. To minimise product shortage in the local market, we have secured about 240 000 tonnes of steel from various sources - including from ArcelorMittal Group mills worldwide. These products are expected to be available to the local market from mid-October.



The financial loss at this stage is estimated at R1.1 billion which includes property damage of R245 million. The company is working closely with its insurers and loss adjusters to prepare the claim which will be finalised once the actual repair cost and consequential losses are known. The deductible on the claim will be USD45 million.



Shareholders are advised that as the estimated financial impact of the incident has been provided, caution in respect of the structural failure at the Newcastle facility is no longer required to be exercised by shareholders when dealing in their securities.
26-Sep-2011
(Official Notice)
Shareholders were referred to the previous announcements published by the company relating to the proposed ArcelorMittal South Africa BEE transaction ("BEE transaction"), and the various renewal cautionary announcements, the latest being 10 June 2011.

Shareholders are advised that as there have not been further developments in this matter, caution is no longer required to be exercised by shareholders when dealing in their securities.
26-Sep-2011
(Official Notice)
Shareholders were referred to the announcement released by ArcMittal on 22 July 2010 where it was announced that an interim pricing arrangement had been reached between SIOC and ArcMittal for the period 1 March 2010 to 31 July 2011 ("the interim agreement") and the various renewal cautionary announcements, the latest being 25 July 2011. It was further announced on 17 May 2011 that SIOC and ArcMittal have agreed to an addendum which extends the interim agreement for another 12 months to endure to 31 July 2012 to allow for the arbitration proceedings between the companies which is anticipated to take place in the first half of 2012. Shareholders are advised that due to the information provided above, caution is no longer required to be exercised by shareholders when dealing in their securities.
16-Aug-2011
(Media Comment)
According to Business Report, Arcmittal and Kumba Iron Ore Ltd ("Kumba") have joined hands in fighting the granting of the steel maker's lapsed 21.4 percent stake in mining rights at Sishen mine to politically connected Imperial Crown Trading ("ICT"). In the first day of arguments at the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria, Kumba maintained that the ICT application was "fraudulent" and the product of a corrupt process. Arcmittal owned 21.4 percent and Kumba 28.5 percent of the mining right at the Sishen mine in the Northern Cape. However, the steel maker lost the right when it failed to convert it into a new order mining right.

(Official Notice)
Shareholders are advised that ArcelorMittal South Africa has confirmed that a structural failure occurred in the gas cleaning plant at its Newcastle facility on Friday 5 August 2011 resulting in the dust catcher partially collapsing.

According to Business Report, ArcelorMittal SA intended to seek a "free allocation" of coal from the government if the national treasury went ahead with its proposed carbon tax, the group's general measure for environment, Siegfried Spanig, said this week. The steel maker believed that because of limited alternatives to coal in steel making, the industry should be given a free allocation of coal but be liable for tax on any carbon inefficiencies above a designated global benchmark. This would enable the group to be taxed on an issue 'over which we do have some control", Spanig said.

According to Business Report, Arcmittal SA confirmed that it had not submitted a fresh bid for Zisco, the Zimbabwean state-owned iron and steel group, but said this should not be seen as a sign South Africa's neighbour was not on its radar.

Adding Zisco to its assets would bolster Arcmittal's integrated asset amid a protracted dispute with Kumba Iron Ore.

Business Day reported that steel maker ArcelorMittal SA has set out the broad parameters for a long-term solution to its dispute with Kumba. While it held out hope for a quick conclusion to the dispute, it has ruled out making current interim prices the basis for a long-term solution and expressed the desire to return to an arrangement with substantially discounted iron-ore prices. Until February it paid cost plus 3% for iron ore from the Sishen Iron Ore mine. This all follows after a tense stand-off between the two organisations after Kumba had unilaterally rescinded a deal under which it supplied iron ore to Mittal at "cost plus 3%". The agreement had been in force for almost a decade. It now appears that Mittal would prefer something akin to this agreement being reinstated as a condition for supplying cheap steel to South African industry and maintaining a steel beneficiating and exporting capacity.

The board of directors of ArcelorMittal had significantly advanced a broad-based black economic empowerment ownership transaction, which included an employee share ownership plan. However, the collapse in the worldwide economy made the conclusion of the transaction impossible at the time.

ArcelorMittal's shareholders are advised that ArcelorMittal remains firmly of the opinion that all the terms contained in the current agreement relating to the annual supply of 6.25 million tons of iron ore from SIOC to ArcelorMittal at cost +3%, remain of full force and effect. The dispute resolution procedure under the agreement in respect of this matter has been initiated.



SIOC has thus far failed to provide documents supporting its contentions. Having regard to SIOC's notice that with effect from 1 March 2010, SIOC will no longer supply iron ore to ArcelorMittal from Sishen Mine at cost +3%, but only "on commercial terms", ArcelorMittal has been left with no alternative but to inform its customers that it will, with immediate effect, adjust its commercial pricing policy. ArcelorMittal will introduce a surcharge to partially mitigate the additional iron ore cost, based upon the international spot price for iron ore that SIOC asserts it is entitled to charge on iron ore supplied to ArcelorMittal, which entitlement ArcelorMittal disputes. Should ArcelorMittal prevail in proceedings against SIOC in respect of the contract price, the accumulated Sishen surcharge funds will be refunded to customers, with any interest earned thereon. In the event ArcelorMittal is not successful in these proceedings, in whole or in part, the relevant Sishen surcharge will be available to fund the obligation to SIOC.

ArcelorMittal will endeavour to resolve its disputes with SIOC as soon as reasonably practicable. Such disputes, by their nature, may, however, take an extended period to resolve.

Further to the announcement dated 26 February 2010, pertaining to a notice that was received by ArcelorMittal from Sishen Iron Ore Company (Pty) Ltd ("SIOC") (collectively "the parties") ArcelorMittal`s shareholders are notified as follows:

*The parties have commenced a dispute resolution process in accordance with the provisions of the supply agreement, which includes arbitration, to resolve the dispute relating to the supply of iron ore and matters related thereto. *Both parties are in agreement that this will be expedited.

*An interim arrangement is being considered and negotiated following receipt of a proposal from SIOC on the terms of short term iron ore supply.

*SIOC will continue to supply iron ore to ArcelorMittal and the situation with Thabazimbi Iron Ore Mine remains unaffected by this process.



ArcelorMittal has considered the assertions made by SIOC relating to the mineral rights. Nevertheless, the company remains of the firm opinion that the long term supply agreement remains valid and binding and will take all steps necessary to protect its shareholders in this regard. Management will take all necessary steps to minimise the financial impact on the business. ArcelorMittal and JSE Ltd ("the JSE") have agreed to the lifting of the halt in the trade of ArcelorMittal securities on the securities exchange operated by the JSE with immediate effect. Shareholders will be kept advised of developments in this regard. Shareholders are advised to exercise caution in dealing in their ArcelorMittal securities until a further announcement is made.

Arcelormittal SA the country's largest steel market, was not yet ready to relaunch the "ambitious growth programme" it envisaged two years ago, when it planned to expand local capacity by 2-million tons to 10-million tons, due to continued uncertainty in the markets, CEO Nonkululeko Nyembezi-Heita said yesterday.



A second factor that could cause the group to reconsider the expansion of it's Newcastle plant would be whether or not it was successful in it's bid for Zimbabwe steel maker Zisco, which has the potential capacity to make 1-million tons of long steel products a year, she said. Arcelormittal had expected a decision on the winning bid by December, but had not yet heard anything. The value of Arcelormittal's bid has not been disclosed.

Outlook

Financial results for the first quarter of 2010 are expected to improve further on the fourth quarter 2009, boosted by a combination of higher production, higher sales volumes and improved international sales prices. This will be partially offset by a rise in coal, scrap, alloy and iron ore input prices. Changes in the Rand/US Dollar exchange rate will always have an important impact on earnings.

Revenue R6.9 million (June 2009: 5.8 million). Profit/(loss) from operations R30 million (June 2009: (R177) million). Attributable (loss)/earnings (18) cps (June 2009: 137 cps). ArcelorMittal South Africa has posted a headline loss of R65 million for the third quarter of 2009 which represents a substantial improvement on the R607 million loss of the previous quarter. The improvement from the previous quarter was driven by a 19% rise in sales volumes, a moderate improvement in steel prices and lower raw material input costs as expensive coal contracts started to run out by the middle of the third quarter.



Outlook for fourth quarter

Results in the fourth quarter of 2009 are expected to improve further, driven by higher sales and lower costs, with lower coal prices making the largest contribution. The rand's performance is a critical variable in our outlook for the quarter.

Dividend

No dividend has been declared.



Outlook for the third quarter

After reporting a loss over the past six months, results in the third quarter of 2009 are expected to improve on the back of higher domestic and international sales volumes and prices. Domestic demand is expected to rise during the third quarter as de-stocking by customers ended at the end of the second quarter, though still well below the average levels of last year. The decline in economic growth in the first half of 2009 is set to slow in the second half. This is on the back of a moderate improvement in the international economy and government's commitment to continue with its infrastructure programme. Movement in the exchange rate will also have an important impact on earnings.

ArcelorMittal South Africa has reported a headline loss of R237 million for the first quarter of 2009 (2008 R2 billion).

Revenue decreased from R8 088 million to R6 177 million in 2009. Profit attributable to ordinary shareholders decreased to -R239 million (R2 000 million). Headline earnings on a per share basis decreased to -53cps (449cps).



Outlook

Results for the second quarter are expected to improve marginally as the cost of raw materials, particularly coking coal, comes down. While prices for steel products are expected to remain weak, domestic sales volumes should increase slightly during the second quarter as the de-stocking process nears its end. A decline in inflation, further likely interest rate cuts and government's commitment to continue with its infrastructure programme, should also improve consumer and investment spending as the year progresses.

Revenue increased by 36% to R39.9 billion (2007:R29.3 billion) in the year to 31 December 2008. Operating profit rose 58% to R12.2 billion (2007:R7.7 billion) and profit attributable to ordinary equity holders also increased to reach R9.3 billion (2007:R5.7 billion). Overall, this solid performance led growth in headline earnings on a per share basis to 2 128cps (1 288cps).



Dividend per share

A final ordinary dividend of 365cps has been declared for the twelve month period under review.



Prospects

Earnings for the first quarter of 2009 are set to fall substantially compared to the fourth quarter of 2008, as the full impact of the decline in steel prices will be felt. Furthermore the drop in the cost of input materials, especially coal, will only start to flow through from the second quarter. The decline in earnings will be further aggravated by lower income expected from the coke - chemicals business due to reduced demand for market coke from the ferro-alloy industry. Domestic steel demand is expected to remain under pressure for at least the first half of 2009. A decline in inflation, further possible interest rate cuts and government's commitment to continue with its infrastructure programme could boost consumer and investment spending towards the latter part of the year. Global production and consumption in 2009 are also forecast to be below 2008 levels. A return to stability is only expected in the second half of the year when production cuts should bring the market closer to equilibrium.

Headline earnings for the quarter of R3 772 million were at record levels with an increase of 47% compared to the previous quarter and 257% compared to the corresponding period last year. At the operating income level the increases were 57% and 160% respectively. The main reasons for the improvements were higher selling prices, improved sales volumes compared to the previous quarter as well as foreign exchange gains compared to losses during the comparative periods. These gains were partly offset by higher input costs. Cash cost per ton of hot rolled coil for the quarter increased by 69% compared to the corresponding period last year, while the cash cost of billets rose by 68%. The increases were mainly driven by a substantial escalation in the cost of coal, scrap and imported pellets and coke. Compared to the previous quarter, the cost of producing hot rolled coil increased by 16% and the cost of billets by 13%, as a result of sharp rises in the price of coal, scrap as well as imported pellets and coke.

30 Jul 2008 08:19:29
(C)
Headline earnings for the past six months of R4.6 billion increased by 45% compared to the corresponding period last year. The substantial increase was mainly driven by higher international steel prices, a substantial increase in income from our Coke and Chemicals business, higher income from our marketing and shipping joint venture as well as higher gains on foreign exchange rates and financial instruments. This was partially offset by lower sales volumes and an increase in costs. Hot rolled coil cash cost per tonne increased by 41% compared to the corresponding period last year and the cost of billets increased by 47%. These increases were driven by cost pressures on our major input materials of which scrap, coal and alloys were the main contributors. Cost pressures impacted more severely on the cost of billets as a result of the substantial increase in the price of scrap on the production cost of our Vereeniging Works which is to a large extent scrap based. Total sales volumes decreased by 7% compared to the corresponding period last year. Domestic sales increased by 4% while the decrease in exports of 46% was mainly due to our commitment to first service our domestic customers.



Dividends

The board declared an interim cash dividend of 342 cents, covered approximately three times by headline earnings.



Prospects

Domestic and international demand are expected to remain strong with international prices expected to remain firm as a result of the ongoing strong demand from emerging markets and continued cost push pressures. Quarter on quarter our average domestic sales prices will improve due to the fact that the full impact of price increases announced during quarter two will only flow through in the third quarter.

(C)
Headline earnings for the quarter were significantly higher at R2 003 million which represents an increase of 31% compared to both the previous quarter and the corresponding period last year. These increases were to a large extent driven by a substantial gain on foreign exchange compared to a loss during the previous quarter and a small gain during the corresponding quarter last year, higher equity accounted earnings from our marketing and shipping joint venture as well as an improvement in operating income, especially when compared to the previous quarter. Operating income increased by 26% compared to the previous quarter and 5% compared to the same period last year, driven by a substantial increase in international steel prices, a weaker average Rand/US Dollar exchange rate, and a substantial increase in the prices of market coke sales by our Coke and Chemicals business. This was partially offset by lower steel sales volumes and a significant increase in costs mainly due to higher input material prices.



Dividend

No dividend was declared for the period under review.



Prospects

International steel prices are expected to increase further during the next quarter underpinned by high demand, supply constraints and continued cost pressures. In South Africa, although spending on durable goods is expected to decline as a result of high interest and inflation rates, demand is expected to remain strong primarily due to high fixed investment spending on capital projects aimed at improving the country?s infrastructure. The results for quarter two are expected to show a significant improvement from quarter one, driven by higher sales prices and an improvement in production stability, despite further increases in the cost of raw materials, mainly coal and scrap.

Arcmittal may raise its steel prices for the fourth time this year, reported Business Day. The increase comes on the back of a weaker rand and rising input costs. The coming increase will bring the total price hike for the year so far to 60%. Arcmittal spokesperson Tami Didiza said that the price hikes were driven by global steel price movements.

According to Business Report, Arcmittal's market capitalisation could reach R103 billion for the first time within a year, benefiting from soaring steel prices. Arcmittal has announced three price increases since last month. The company's recent price hike pushed its market cap to a record R93 billion. However it now stands at R86 billion, after some profit taking on Wednesday, 5 March 2008.

Revenue increased to R29.3 billion (R25.4 billion) in the year to 31 December 2007. Operating profit rose 27% to R7.7 billion (R6.1 billion) and profit attributable to ordinary equity holders also increased by more than 20% to reach R5.7 billion (R4.7 billion). Overall, this solid performance led growth in headline earnings on a per share basis to 1 288cps (1 061cps), driven by a significant improvement in operating income, higher interest income and higher equity accounted earnings from Arcmittal's marketing and shipping joint venture.



Dividend

A final ordinary dividend of 196cps has been declared for the twelve month period under review.



Outlook for the first quarter of 2008

Both domestic and international demands are expected to remain strong with further price increases. This view is supported by an expected equilibrium in supply and demand, rising raw material prices, a slowdown of Chinese exports and the rationalisation of Chinese production. During the beginning of February 2008, the Corex and Midrex plants at Saldanha Works are scheduled to be relined for a duration of approximately 10 weeks. The negative impact on production volumes will however be limited by increasing scrap melting through the steel plant. Overall, results for the first quarter of 2008 are expected to remain strong with slightly lower sales volumes to be offset by further increases in steel prices. However, the results could be negatively impacted by the extent of electricity outages.

Headline earnings for the past six months of R1 912 million (R3 221 million) declined by 41%. The main reasons for the substantial decline from last year were lower sales prices, an increase in costs, lower export volumes, lower equity accounted earnings and voluntary retrenchment packages. This was partially offset by higher local volumes and foreign exchange gains. Revenue dropped to R12.1 billion (R12.4 billion) and operating expenses increased to R9.3 billion (R7.7 billion). Profit from operations declined to R2.2 billion (R4.1 billion) and profit for the period was lower at R1.9 billion (R3.2 billion).



Dividend

The board declared an interim dividend of 143c, covered approximately three times by headline earnings.



Outlook for quarter three 2006

The results for quarter three is expected to remain strong, driven by higher sales prices, higher domestic volumes, a more stable production environment and the full benefit of the group's voluntary retrenchment programme. However, the movement in the exchange rate will always have a major impact.

According to Business Day, it is expected that Mittal Steel will report improved second-quarter earnings compared with the first-quarter due to robust domestic demand. Pierre Marais, portfolio manager at African Harvest, is of the opinion that Mittal would have raised output in the second quarter in order to compensate for first-quarter production losses due to power cuts at Saldanha. He also added that Mittal probably benefited from the weaker Rand over this period, and estimated half-year headline earnings of about 350cps.

Headline earnings for the quarter of R684 million declined by 21% compared to the previous quarter and by 57% compared to the corresponding period last year. The main reasons for the substantial decline from last year were lower sales prices, an increase in costs, lower export volumes and voluntary retrenchment packages provided for during the past quarter. This was partially offset by higher local sales volumes.



MARKET REVIEW

International

Export sales volume declined by 13% compared to the previous quarter and 15% compared to the corresponding period last year due to a higher domestic offtake. The decline in international steel prices was mainly driven by a softening in demand in China and a destocking effect following an inventory buildup by customers during the first half of last year in anticipation of further price increases.



Domestic

Domestic sales volume was 18% higher than the previous quarter and 19% higher than the corresponding period last year mainly due to equilibrium between supply and demand following the 2005 reduction in inventory levels and a general improvement in economic activities. Domestic spot prices for the quarter were below that of last year following two price reductions announced during 2005.



Outlook

It is expected that the local market to remain buoyant driven by strong economic conditions. A moderate improvement in global steel prices is also expected.

As noted in the Business Day of 27 March 06, Mittal Steel SA's predecessor, Iscor, appeared to have breached an agreement to pass on benefits of a government incentive scheme to South African buyers. According to Zavareh Rustomjee, former trade and industry department director-general, Iscor's Saldanha Steel mill was one of the major beneficiaries of an accelerated depreciation scheme under tax law in the early 1990s. Under this agreement Iscor was not supposed to make higher profits on domestic sales to customers who used the steel to produce goods for export purposes, than Iscor made on its steel exports. This resulted in benefits to the tune of around R875 million. Rustomjee argued that the Competition Tribunal should regulate steel prices if Mittal Steel SA exercised its control over steel prices in such a way that it prevented growth in the downstream industry.

Headline earnings for the six months of R3.2 billion represents an all-time record. This excellent result was driven by a continuation of the high international price levels experienced since the second half of last year as well as higher export volumes. This was partially offset by lower local sales volumes, higher costs and a stronger rand. Headline earnings increased by 108% compared to the corresponding period last year while on a comparable basis, before BAA remuneration, the increase was 56%. In dollar terms it increased by 68% due to the rand`s strengthening by 7.7%. Revenue for the period rose to R12.2 billion. Operating profit of R4.3 billion for the six months increased by 47% on a comparable basis, with the most notable improvements at Saldanha (97%), Long Products (87%) and Vanderbijlpark (27%). Liquid steel production increased by 7% compared to the corresponding period last year with an increase at Saldanha of 9%, Vanderbijlpark of 9% and Long Products 2%. Attributable earnings of R3.2 billion were posted.



Prospects

The local market is expected to improve slightly with inventories starting to return to normal levels; supported by price decreases on flat products announced effective from 1 August 2005, following the decline in international prices. Export volumes are expected to increase significantly as part of the plan to keep inventory levels in control. Export prices will be lower although some improvement is expected towards the end of the third quarter. Costs are expected to increase from second quarter levels, driven mainly by a substantial increase in the cost of imported iron ore pellets and coking coal. Overall, the results for the next quarter are expected to remain reasonably strong though materially lower compared to the second quarter 2005, driven mainly by lower sales prices and an increase in costs. However, this impact could be softened if the rand continues to weaken.
