Regulatory News:

ArcelorMittal (referred to as "ArcelorMittal” or the "Company”) (MT (New York, Amsterdam, Paris, Luxembourg), MTS (Madrid)), the world’s leading integrated steel and mining company, today announced results1 for the three and nine- month periods ended September 30, 2012.

Highlights:

  • Health and safety performance: LTIF rate2 of 1.0x in 3Q 2012 as compared to 0.8x in 2Q 2012 and 1.5x in 3Q 2011
  • EBITDA3 of $1.3 billion in 3Q 2012 (including negative $0.1 billion from employee benefit charges4) as compared to $2.4 billion in 2Q 2012 (which included positive $0.3 billion of gains on subsidiary divestments5)
  • Steel shipments of 19.9 Mt in 3Q 2012, a decrease of 8.3% as compared to 2Q 2012 and 5.7% below 3Q 2011
  • 14.3Mt iron ore produced in 3Q 2012, up +1.3% YoY; 7.1Mt shipped and reported at market price6, up +6.7% YoY
  • Net debt7 increased by $1.2 billion during 3Q 2012 to $23.2 billion, driven by negative operating cash flow (including a $0.3 billion investment in working capital) and negative foreign exchange impacts partially offset by proceeds from asset disposal and an issuance of perpetual securities
  • Liquidity19 of $13.4 billion at end 3Q 2012, with an average debt maturity of 6.2 years
  • Asset optimization plan progressing: Closure of liquid phase at Liege, Belgium8 agreed; announced intention to launch a project to permanently close the liquid phase of Florange in France
  • Management gains plan completed with $4.8 billion savings achieved ahead of schedule

Outlook and guidance:

  • The Q3 2012 fall in the iron ore price9 and the weaker global economic backdrop adversely impacted steel prices and steel volumes as well as the profitability of our mining operations, affecting our previous expectations for group profitability in 2H 2012
  • The Company now expects to achieve FY 2012 EBITDA of approximately $7 billion
  • Iron ore shipments remain on track to increase by approximately 10% in FY 2012 compared to FY 2011
  • Excluding any proceeds from future asset sales, net debt is expected to be approximately $22 billion by year end; deleveraging is a priority as the Company continues to target an investment grade credit rating
  • Considering the challenging global economic conditions, and the Company’s priority to deleverage, ArcelorMittal’s Board of Directors proposes reducing the annual dividend payment to $0.20/share10 from 2013 (from $0.75/share in 2012)
  • 2012 capex is expected to be approximately $4.5 billion; ArcelorMittal Mines Canada expansion to 24mtpa11 on track for ramp up during 1H 2013

Mr. Lakshmi N. Mittal, Chairman and CEO of ArcelorMittal, commented:

The already fragile global economy was further impacted in the third quarter of 2012 by the slowdown in China. This resulted in very challenging operating conditions for ArcelorMittal, which are expected to continue in the fourth quarter. Against this backdrop, the Company is focussed on delivering its plan of asset optimization, net debt reduction and productivity and efficiency improvements.

ARCELORMITTAL THIRD QUARTER 2012 RESULTS

ArcelorMittal, the world’s leading integrated steel and mining company, today announces results for the three month and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012.

Corporate responsibility and safety performance

Health and safety - Own personnel and contractors lost time injury frequency rate2

Health and safety performance, based on own personnel figures and contractors lost time injury frequency rate, increased to 1.0x in third quarter of 2012 ("3Q 2012”) as compared to 0.8x for the second quarter of 2012 ("2Q 2012”) and significantly decreased as compared to 1.5x for the third quarter of 2011 ("3Q 2011”).

The lost time injury frequency rate of 1.0x in first nine months of 2012 ("9M 2012”) compares to 1.5x for the first nine months of 2011 ("9M 2011”), with significant improvements across all segments, especially in the Mining, Flat Carbon Americas, Long Carbon Americas and Europe and Distribution Solutions segments.

Despite this encouraging performance in lost time injury frequency rate, there is still more work to be done. In particular we have to focus on improving the safety performance of the contractors who work at our sites.

Key corporate responsibility highlights for 3Q 2012

  • ArcelorMittal leads the steel sector in the 2012 Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI). The improved score resulted from improvements in disclosure, human rights, and the Company's responsible sourcing program.
  • ArcelorMittal Hamburg has been recognized as the flagship project for the city of Hamburg’s European Green Capital 2011. This accolade builds on ArcelorMittal Hamburg’s recent ISO50001 certification for energy management. Approximately 60,000 tonnes of CO2 have already been saved through energy efficiency improvements at this plant since 2007.
  • ArcelorMittal in Kazakhstan is pioneering the reuse of coal-bed mine waste methane gas for power generation. In addition to removing potentially dangerous methane from the coal mine, the project inaugurated in July 2012 is expected to generate an annual 1.4MW of electricity that will meet ~20% of the mine’s power needs and reduce CO2 emissions significantly.

Analysis of results for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 versus results for the nine months ended September 30, 2011

ArcelorMittal’s net income for 9M 2012 was $0.3 billion, or $0.17 per share, as compared to net income for 9M 2011 of $3.3 billion, or $2.11 per share.

Total steel shipments for 9M 2012 were lower at 63.8 million metric tonnes as compared with 65.2 million metric tonnes for 9M 2011.

Sales for 9M 2012 decreased by 9.3% to $64.9 billion as compared with $71.5 billion for 9M 2011 primarily due to lower average steel selling prices (-8.1%) and lower steel shipments (-2.2%).

Depreciation of $3.4 billion for 9M 2012 was comparable with 9M 2011.

Impairment charges for 9M 2012 totaled $199 million, primarily related to the intention to launch a project to permanently close the liquid phase at the Florange site in France ($130 million); and the extended idling of the electric arc furnace and continuous caster at the Schifflange site in Luxembourg. Impairment expenses for 9M 2011 were $103 million relating to a rolling facility in the Long Carbon Americas segment as well as costs associated with the decision to close two blast furnaces, sinter plant, steel shop and continuous casters at Liege, Belgium.

Restructuring charges for 9M 2012 totaled $395 million and consisted largely of costs associated with the implementation of the Asset Optimization Plan primarily impacting Flat Carbon Europe and Long Carbon Europe operations.

Operating income for 9M 2012 was $1.7 billion, compared with operating income of $4.9 billion for 9M 2011.

EBITDA/tonne (US$/t)   44   83   74   80   111
Operating income /tonne (US$/t)   1   43   34   39   71

Flat Carbon Americas crude steel production decreased by 4.8% to 5.7 million tonnes for 3Q 2012, as compared to 6.0 million tonnes for 2Q 2012, driven primarily by lower production in North America and in South America following blast furnace #1 maintenance work in Tubarao, Brazil.

Steel shipments for 3Q 2012 were 5.4 million tonnes, 6.7% lower than 2Q 2012, primarily driven by lower slab availability in Brazil following blast furnace #1 maintenance as stated above.

Sales in the Flat Carbon Americas segment were $4.8 billion for 3Q 2012, a decrease of 9.7% as compared to $5.4 billion for 2Q 2012. Sales were impacted by lower steel selling prices in North America, weakening slab pricing and lower dollar prices in South America due to depreciation of Brazilian Real.

EBITDA in 3Q 2012 decreased by 50.2% to $236 million as compared to $474 million in 2Q 2012. Lower profitability was primarily driven by North American operations due to lower selling prices and one time labor cost ($72 million impact related to one-time signing bonus and post retirement benefit costs following entry into the new US labor contract) combined with lower steel shipment volume.

Flat Carbon Europe crude steel production decreased by 5.9% to 6.7 million tonnes in 3Q 2012 as compared to 2Q 2012 reflecting weaker market sentiment and seasonal demand patterns.

Steel shipments for 3Q 2012 were 5.8 million tonnes, a decrease of 13.8% as compared to 6.8 million tonnes for 2Q 2012. Steel shipments decreased in the third quarter of 2012 due to significantly weaker market demand and seasonal slowdown.

Sales in the Flat Carbon Europe segment were $6.1 billion for 3Q 2012, a decrease of 15.4% as compared to $7.2 billion for 2Q 2012. Sales decreased primarily due to lower steel shipment volumes and lower average steel selling prices (-3.2%).

EBITDA for 3Q 2012 was $191 million as compared to $381 million for 2Q 2012. Lower profitability was primarily driven by lower steel shipment volumes as the effects of lower average steel selling prices was offset in part by lower costs. EBITDA for 3Q 2012 includes $131 million of DDH income recognized during the quarter as compared to $136 million DDH income for 2Q 2012.

Operating result in 3Q 2012 included impairment expenses of $130 million relating to the intention to launch a project to permanently close the liquid phase at the Florange site in France and restructuring costs totalling $90 million associated primarily with the decision to close two blast furnaces, sinter plant, steel shop and continuous casters in Liege, Belgium. Operating result in 2Q 2012 was negatively impacted by restructuring costs totaling $176 million associated with such decision with respect to Liege.

Long Carbon Americas and Europe crude steel production amounted to 5.7 million tonnes for 3Q 2012, a decrease of 2.9% as compared to 5.9 million tonnes for 2Q 2012. Production was lower in Europe primarily due to weak market sentiment and seasonal effects.

Steel shipments for 3Q 2012 were 5.5 million tonnes, a decrease of 5.7% as compared to 5.8 million tonnes for 2Q 2012, particularly due to seasonal slowdown in Europe and weaker demand in North America.

Sales in the Long Carbon Americas and Europe segment were lower at $5.2 billion for 3Q 2012, as compared to $5.7 billion for 2Q 2012. Sales were impacted by a decrease in steel shipment volumes and by lower average steel selling prices (-2.7%).

EBITDA for 3Q 2012 was $330 million, a 41.5% decrease as compared to $564 million for 2Q 2012. Lower profitability was primarily driven by reduced steel shipment volumes and average steel selling prices particularly in the European operations due to weak market sentiment and seasonal slowdown as well as a reduction of shipment volumes in the Tubular business.

Own iron ore production (not including supplies under strategic long-term contracts) declined 0.1 million metric tonnes to 14.3 million metric tonnes for 3Q 2012, as compared to 14.4 million metric tonnes for 2Q 2012. Own iron ore production (not including supplies under strategic long-term contracts) increased 1.3% for 3Q 2012, as compared to 14.1 million metric tonnes for 3Q 2011.

Own coal production (not including supplies under strategic long-term contracts) for 3Q 2012 declined 0.1 million metric tonnes compared to 2.1 million metric tonnes at 2Q 2012 and 3Q 2011.

EBITDA attributable to the Mining segment for 3Q 2012 was $391 million, 27.7% lower as compared to $541 million for 2Q 2012. This decline was primarily due to substantially lower iron ore market price and lower marketable iron ore shipments primarily at ArcelorMittal Mines Canada due to scheduling some shipments into Q4 following rail expansion, works and at ArcelorMittal Liberia following severe monsoon conditions. EBITDA attributable to the Mining segment was $842 million for 3Q 2011.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

For 3Q 2012, net cash used in operating activities was $0.3 billion, compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $2.3 billion for 2Q 2012. Cash flow from operating activities for 3Q 2012 included a $0.3 billion investment in operating working capital compared to a working capital release of $1.4 billion in 2Q 2012. Rotation days18 increased during 3Q 2012 to 72 days from 61 days in 2Q 2012 primarily driven by inventory build up.

Net cash used in investing activities during 3Q 2012 was $1.1 billion, as compared to net cash used in investing activities of $0.8 billion for 2Q 2012. Capital expenditures increased to $1.2 billion for 3Q 2012 as compared to $1.1 billion for 2Q 2012. The Company is focusing only on core growth capex in its mining business given attractive return profiles of projects under construction. Some planned steel investments remain suspended.

Other investing activities in 3Q 2012 of $154 million included $189 million received for the first installment of Enovos sale price (after adjustment for dividends) offset by an outflow of $47 million relating to payment of the remaining installment of an 11% stake in Ostrava acquired in 2009. Other investing activities in 2Q 2012 of $309 million included $684 million received from the sale of Skyline Steel5 partially offset by $356 million outflow from subsidiary financing.

Net cash provided by financing activities for 3Q 2012 was $0.2 billion, as compared to cash used by financing activities of $1.8 billion for 2Q 2012. During 3Q 2012, the Company issued $650 million of subordinated perpetual securities. The securities have no fixed maturity date, are subordinated and have a coupon of 8.75% per annum, subject to the right of the Company to defer such payments. During 2Q 2012, the Company repaid loans for a net amount of $1.4 billion related to commercial paper and bank loans.

During 3Q 2012 the Company paid dividends amounting to $297 million as compared to $294 million in 2Q 2012.

At September 30, 2012, the Company’s cash and cash equivalents (including restricted cash and short-term investments) amounted to $3.0 billion as compared to $4.5 billion at June 30, 2012. As of September 30, 2012, net debt increased by $1.2 billion to $23.2 billion, as compared with $22.0 billion at June 30, 2012, driven by negative operating cash flow (including investment in working capital) and foreign exchange losses partially offset by proceeds from asset disposal and perpetual securities issue. Excluding any proceeds from asset sales, net debt is expected to be approximately $22 billion by year end.

The Company had liquidity19 of $13.4 billion at September 30, 2012, a decrease of $1.4 billion as compared with liquidity of $14.8 billion at June 30, 2012, consisting of cash and cash equivalents (including restricted cash and short-term investments) of $3.4 billion and $10 billion of available credit lines. At September 2012, the average debt maturity was 6.2 years down from 6.4 years as of June 30, 2012.

Update on management gains program and asset optimization plan

At the end of 3Q 2012, the Company’s annualized sustainable management gains increased to $4.8 billion as compared to $4.4 billion at 2Q 2012. The Company has achieved its target to reach management gains of $4.8 billion from sustainable SG&A, fixed and variable cost reductions and continuous improvement ahead of schedule.

Progress has been made on the Asset Optimization Plan launched in September 2011 to generate an annualized $1 billion sustainable EBITDA improvement by the end of 2012:

  • In October 2011, the Company announced its intention to close two blast furnaces, sinter plant, steel shop and continuous casters in Liege, Belgium;
  • In the fourth quarter of 2011 ("4Q 2011”), the Company announced the extended idling of its electric arc furnace in Madrid and further restructuring costs at certain other Spanish, Czech Republic and Distribution Solutions ("AMDS”) operations;
  • In the first quarter of 2012 ("1Q 2012”), the Company announced the extended idling of its electric arc furnace and continuous caster at the Schifflange site in Luxembourg and further optimization in Poland and Spain;
  • In October 2012, the Company announced its decision to close two blast furnaces, sinter plant, steel shop and continuous casters in Liege, Belgium; and
  • In October 2012, the Company announced its intention to launch a project to permanently close the liquid phase at the Florange site in France.

Annual dividend reduced to $0.20/share from 2013

Considering the challenging global economic conditions, and the Company’s priority to deleverage, ArcelorMittal’s Board of Directors proposes reducing the annual dividend payment to $0.20/share from 2013 (from $0.75/share in 2012). Subject to shareholder approval at the next annual general meeting in May 2013, this dividend will be paid in July 2013.

Once the deleveraging plan is complete and market conditions improve, the Board intends to progressively increase the dividend.

Recent developments

  • On October 1, 2012, ArcelorMittal Atlantique and Lorraine announced the intention to launch a project to permanently close the liquid phase of the Florange plant in France, and concentrate efforts and investment on the high-quality finishing operation in Florange, which employs more than 2,000 employees. The Company has accepted the French government’s request for the government to find a buyer for the liquid phase within 60 days of October 1, 2012. Although the coke plant would not be part of the proposed closure, ArcelorMittal has agreed to include it in the potential sale. Some 629 people would be affected by the project. The Company is proposing that in the future, slab for the Florange site will be supplied from Dunkerque, thereby maintaining the industrial chain in France. ArcelorMittal will then focus on enhancing Florange’s position as a centre of excellence for developing high-quality value-added products for its customers, particularly the automotive industry. Florange’s geographic location close to important customers in the industry, its expertise and capacity in producing high-tech steels, the Group’s patents and its proximity to the Maizieres-les-Metz research and development centre, all support this strategy.
  • On September 25, 2012, the Company announced the pricing of an offering of US$ 650 million subordinated perpetual securities. The securities have no fixed maturity date, are subordinated and have a coupon of 8.75% per annum, subject to the right of the Company to defer the coupon payments. The initial coupon resets periodically over the life of the securities, with the first reset in year five and subsequently every five years thereafter. There is a step up in the coupon of 25bps on the second reset date (year 10) and a subsequent step up of 75bps fifteen years later. The Company is entitled to call the securities in year five, in year ten, and on subsequent coupon payment dates. The Company also has the option to redeem the securities upon specific accounting, tax, rating agency or change of control events.

Outlook and guidance

The Q3 2012 fall in the iron ore price, and the weaker global economic backdrop, adversely impacted steel prices and steel volumes as well as the profitability of our mining operations, affecting our previous expectations for group profitability in 2H 2012. The Company now expects FY 2012 EBITDA of approximately $7 billion.

Iron ore shipments remain on track to increase by approximately 10% in FY 2012 compared to FY 2011.

Excluding any proceeds from future asset sales, net debt is expected to be approximately $22 billion by year end. Deleveraging is a priority as the Company continues to target an investment grade credit rating.

The 2012 capex is expected to be approximately $4.5 billion. ArcelorMittal Mines Canada expansion to 24mtpa’s is on track for ramp up during 1H 2013.

Group   2,449   (465)   (46)   (50)   (105)   (21)   (426)   1,336

a) The volume variance indicates the sales value gain/loss through selling a higher/lower volume compared to the reference period, valued at reference period contribution (selling price–variable cost). The product/shipment mix variance indicates sales value gain/loss through selling different proportions of mix (product, choice, customer, market including domestic/export), compared to the reference period contribution.

b) The price-cost variance is a combination of the selling price and cost variance. The selling price variance indicates the sales value gain/loss through selling at a higher/lower price compared to the reference period after adjustment for mix, valued with the current period volumes sold. The cost variance indicates increase/decrease in cost (after adjustment for mix, one-time items, non-steel cost and others) compared to the reference period cost. Cost variance includes the gain/loss through consumptions of input materials at a higher price/lower price, movement in fixed cost, changes in valuation of inventory due to movement in capacity utilization etc.

c) Non-steel EBITDA variance primarily represents the gain/loss through the sale of by-products and services.

d) Other represents the gain/loss through movements in provisions including write downs, write backs of inventory, onerous contracts, reversal of provisions, dynamic delta hedge on raw materials, foreign exchange, etc as compared to the reference period. Other includes $339 million gain relating to sale of Skyline recorded in the second quarter of 2012, and $72 million related to one-time signing bonus and post retirement benefit costs following entry into the new US labor contract recorded in the third quarter of 2012.

Appendix 9: End notes

1 The financial information in this press release has been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS”) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB”). While the interim financial information included in this announcement has been prepared in accordance with IFRS applicable to interim periods, this announcement does not contain sufficient information to constitute an interim financial report as defined in International Accounting Standards 34, "Interim Financial Reporting”. Unless otherwise noted the numbers in the press release have not been audited. The financial information and certain other information presented in a number of tables in this press release have been rounded to the nearest whole number or the nearest decimal. Therefore, the sum of the numbers in a column may not conform exactly to the total figure given for that column. In addition, certain percentages presented in the tables in this press release reflect calculations based upon the underlying information prior to rounding and, accordingly, may not conform exactly to the percentages that would be derived if the relevant calculations were based upon the rounded numbers.

2 Lost time injury frequency rate equals lost time injuries per 1,000,000 worked hours, based on own personnel and contractors.

3 EBITDA is defined as operating income plus depreciation, impairment expenses and exceptional items.

4 During the 3Q 2012 the Company incurred $72 million related to a one-time signing bonus and post retirement benefit costs following the new US labor contract.

5 On June 20, 2012, ArcelorMittal completed the sale of its steel foundation distribution business in NAFTA, Skyline Steel and Astralloy ("Skyline Steel”), to Nucor Corporation for a total consideration of $684 million. The transaction comprises 100% of ArcelorMittal’s stake in Skyline Steel’s operations in the NAFTA countries and the Caribbean.

6 Market priced tonnes represent amounts of iron ore and coal from ArcelorMittal mines that could be sold to third parties on the open market. Market priced tonnes that are not sold to third parties are transferred from the Mining segment to the Company’s steel producing segments and reported at the prevailing market price. Shipments of raw materials that do not constitute market priced tonnes are transferred internally and reported on a cost-plus basis.

7 Net debt refers to long-term debt, plus short term debt, less cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and short-term investments (including those held as part of asset/liabilities held for sale). As at September 30, 2012 cash included $441 million and debt included $17 million held at Paul Wurth, which has since been classified as asset/liabilities held for sale.

8 In October 2011, the Company announced its decision to close two blast furnaces, sinter plant, steel shop and continuous casters in Liege, Belgium.

9 Refers to the benchmark spot iron ore price.

10 ArcelorMittal’s Board of Directors recommends reducing the annual dividend payment to $0.20/share from 2013 (from $0.75/share in 2012). Subject to shareholder approval at the next annual general meeting in May 2013, this dividend will be paid in July 2013.

11 Mtpa refers to million tonnes per annum.

12 EBITDA/t includes total Group EBITDA divided by total steel shipments.

13 ArcelorMittal Dofasco has made a number of changes to its pension plan and health and dental benefits. Employees at Dofasco will be transitioned from an existing defined benefit pension plan to a new defined contribution pension plan. Changes to health and dental benefits will result in an increase in the portion of the cost of health benefits that is borne by participants in the plans. These changes resulted in a curtailment gain of $241 million in 1Q 2012.

14 On March 28, 2012, ArcelorMittal announced that it had successfully completed an offering to sell (through certain subsidiaries) 134,317,503 shares and warrants in respect of a further 134,317,503 shares in Eregli Demir ve Çelik Fabrikalari T.A.S. ("Erdemir”) generating total proceeds of TRY 478,170,311 by way of a single accelerated bookbuilt offering to institutional investors. Taking into account acquisition cost net of dividends received, the disposal of the 6.25% stake in Erdemir was cash positive (from an accounting point of view the transaction resulted in a gain of $0.1 billion which includes the reclassification of reserves previously recorded in net equity). As a result of certain events, the Exchange Ratio and Exchange Price of the outstanding Warrants were adjusted such that the Exercise Price of the Series A warrants became TRY 3.490 for 1.437 shares, the Exercise Price of the Series B warrants became TRY 3.656 for 1.437 shares and the Exercise Price for the Series C warrants became TRY 3.822 for 1.437 shares. Series A warrants matured on July 2, 2012 without any warrants being exercised. Similarly Series B warrants matured on October 1, 2012 without any warrants being exercised. ArcelorMittal’s holding today remains at approximately 18.7%. If the remaining Series C warrants are exercised prior to the maturity date of December 14, 2012, ArcelorMittal’s holding will decline to approximately 16.7%. ArcelorMittal agreed to a 365 day lock-up period on its remaining stake in Erdemir.

15 On April 4, 2012, ArcelorMittal Luxembourg entered into an agreement to divest its 23.48% interest in Enovos International SA to a fund managed by AXA Private Equity for a purchase price of EUR 330 million. The purchase price was split with EUR 165 million payable at closing, and the remaining portion deferred for up to two years. Interest will accrue on the deferred portion. Closing of the transaction occurred on July 17, 2012, with $189 million received for the first installment of Enovos sale price (after adjustment for dividends). Taking into account acquisition cost net of dividends received, the disposal of the 23.48% stake in Enovos will be cash positive (from an accounting point of view the transaction resulted in a loss of $0.2 billion).

16 Foreign exchange and other net financing costs include foreign currency swaps, bank fees, interest on pensions, impairments of financial instruments and revaluation of derivative instruments.

17 There are three categories of sales: 1) "External sales”: mined product sold to third parties at market price; 2) "Market-priced tonnes”: internal sales of mined product to ArcelorMittal facilities and reported at prevailing market prices; 3) "Cost-plus tonnes” - internal sales of mined product to ArcelorMittal facilities on a cost-plus basis. The determinant of whether internal sales are reported at market price or cost-plus is whether the raw material could practically be sold to third parties (i.e. there is a potential market for the product and logistics exist to access that market).

18 Rotation days are defined as days of accounts receivable plus days of inventory minus days of accounts payable. Days of accounts payable and inventory are a function of cost of goods sold of the quarter on an annualized basis. Days of accounts receivable are a function of sales of the quarter on an annualized basis.

19 Includes back-up lines for the commercial paper program of approximately $1.3 billion (€1 billion).

20 Total of all finished production of fines, concentrate, pellets, lumps and coal (includes share of production and strategic long-term contracts). (million metric tonnes)

21 ArcelorMittal Distribution Solutions shipments are eliminated in consolidation as they primarily represent shipments originating from other ArcelorMittal operating subsidiaries. (million metric tonnes)

22 Changes in operating working capital are defined as trade accounts receivable plus inventories less trade accounts payable.

23 Capex includes the acquisition of intangible assets (such as concessions for mining and IT support) and includes payments to fixed asset suppliers.

24 Average steel selling prices are calculated as steel sales divided by steel shipments.

25 Shipments originating from a geographical location.

26 Includes Tubular products business.

27 Commercial paper is expected to continue to be rolled over in the normal course of business.

28 Gearing is defined as (A) long-term debt, plus short-term debt, less cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and short-term investments ((including those held as part of asset/liabilities held for sale), divided by (B) total equity.
