Severstal North America Reports the Strongest Quarterly Results Yet, Delivers Significant Y/Y and Q/Q Growth

H1 Year-Over-Year EBITDA Is up 86.2 %

DEARBORN, MI--(Marketwired - July 30, 2014) - Severstal North America ("SNA"), a leading steel producer in the United States and a subsidiary of Severstal, a global steel and mining company, reports another strong financial performance in the second quarter of 2014.

Severstal North America delivered significant growth in sales volumes of 6% q/q, while average selling prices decreased by 1.0% to $827/t, partially due to a lower share of HVA products in the sales portfolio.

Revenue of $1,066 million was up 4.9% q/q driven by higher sales volumes. H1 2014 revenue of $2,082 million was also up, by 10.6% y/y, on better pricing and higher utilization rates.

Q2 EBITDA was 33.3% higher q/q at $100 million primarily reflecting improvements at Dearborn's operations. Results at the Columbus operations remained strong, with EBITDA/t firm at $108/t. The 2nd quarter's EBITDA was one of the highest ever recorded by Severstal North America in its ten-year history.

EBITDA of the whole division in H1 2014 was up 86.2% y/y at $175 million.

Additionally, in Q2, SNA became cash positive q/q and H1 2014 cash generation considerably increased with 344% growth y/y on the back of higher EBITDA and net working capital release.

"SNA's outstanding results this year are a testament to the transformation currently taking place across several critical areas - safety, talent, culture, operations, quality and commercial. Given the solid and sustainable platform that has been built over the last year, we are very excited about the future growth and profitability of our plants, especially in light of the recent news of their upcoming divestiture," said Saikat Dey, CEO of Severstal North America.

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality.
