News Article | April 20, 2017
Site: news.yahoo.com

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Thursday launched a trade probe against China and other exporters of cheap steel into the U.S. market, raising the possibility of new tariffs and sending shares of some U.S. steel makers up over 8 percent. Citing concerns about national security, Trump made the announcement at a White House ceremony with U.S. steel executives from Nucor Corp , United States Steel Corp and TimkenSteel Corp alongside Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, a billionaire businessman who made part of his fortune investing in the steel business. "Steel is critical to both our economy and our military," said Trump, a Republican. "This is not an area where we can afford to become dependent on foreign countries." Trump won many votes in industrial states like Michigan and Pennsylvania with a pledge to boost manufacturing and crack down on Chinese trade practices. China is the largest national producer and makes far more steel than it consumes, selling the excess output overseas, often undercutting domestic producers. The unusual step of launching an investigation comes as Trump is pressuring China to do more to rein in an increasingly belligerent North Korea. When Chinese President Xi Jinping visited Trump in Florida earlier this month, Trump raised the possibility of using trade as a lever to coax China to do more. “Everything they export is dumping,” said Derek Scissors, Asia economist at the American Enterprise Institute, a Washington think tank. Ross cast the decision to initiate the probe as a response to Chinese exports of steel into the United States reaching the point where they now account for 26 percent of the U.S. market. Chinese exports have risen "despite repeated Chinese claims that they were going to reduce their steel capacity," said Ross, whom The Economist, a business magazine that champions free trade, in 2004 labeled "Mr. Protectionism" for his history of owning businesses protected from foreign competition. Ross said that if the Commerce inquiry finds the U.S. steel industry is suffering from too much steel imports, he will recommend retaliatory steps that could include tariffs. Diverging from the Obama administration's approach to the issue, which relied largely on filing complaints to the World Trade Organization (WTO), Trump ordered a probe under Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962, which lets the president impose restrictions on imports for reasons of national security. In October 2001, a Commerce Department investigation found "no probative evidence" that imports of iron ore and semi-finished steel threaten to impair U.S. national security. Steel shares had rallied after Trump won the November election amid promises for increased infrastructure spending. On Thursday shares of Steel Dynamics Inc , AK Steel Holding Corp , Cliffs Natural Resources Inc , Allegheny Technologies Inc and other steel makers closed between 4 percent and 8.5 percent higher. The United States has nearly 100 plants that make millions of tons of steel annually. The U.S. government has attempted to shield them from cheap foreign steel chiefly through the WTO, but the Trump administration said this has had little impact. "The artificially low prices caused by excess capacity and unfairly traded imports suppress profits in the American steel industry," the administration said in a statement. Nucor Chairman John Ferriola said in a statement that the steelmaker welcomed the president's move. "We look forward to continuing to work with the president and Secretary Ross to ensure our trade laws are enforced so that U.S. manufacturers can compete on a level-playing field," he said. Experts were skeptical about the administration's argument that cheap Chinese steel threatened U.S. national security. The Defense Department's annual steel requirements comprise less than 0.3 percent of the industry’s output by weight. “There is no doubt that steel plays a role in our national security and the manufacturing of U.S. weapons systems,” said Jeff Bialos, a partner at law firm Eversheds Sutherland, who has worked on steel trade cases in the past. "But the Department of Defense only consumes a small portion of domestic steel output, and this has decreased over the past decade as composites technology has advanced,” Bialos said.

CD International Enterprises, Inc. (OTC: CDII), a U.S.-based company that sources industrial commodities and provides business and management corporate consulting services, today announced that CD International has entered into a letter of intent with a Honduras-based company to purchase iron ore (62% to 63% Fe). Per the letter of intent, CD International agrees to purchase 100,000 metric tons of iron ore (62% to 63% Fe) per month over a period of 12 months. The total shipment over a period of 12 months will be 1.2 million metric tons of iron ore. The monthly supply can be increased to 500,000 metric tons per month or 6 million metric tons of iron ore per year. The initial 12 months contract of 1.2 million metric tons of iron ore values approximately $84 million on basis of the current CIF China price. Read this and more news for CDII at: http://marketnewsupdates.com/news/cdii.html According to Chinese customs data, China's imports of iron ore rose 7.5 percent to a record 1.024 billion tons in 2016. The total topped the 2015 record of 952.84 million tons. China's 2017 March iron ore imports rose 11 percent from the same month a year earlier to the second-highest monthly amount on record, as the world's second-biggest economy ramped up a drive for cheap overseas supply as the cost of domestic output grew. Imports in March were 95.56 million tons, according to data from the General Administration of Customs. For the first quarter of 2017, imports grew 12 percent to 271 million tons. That is a quarterly record. This rise was the result of two factors: resilient steel demand in China (partly driven by government stimulus measures) and the replacement of Chinese domestic iron ore production by the import of cheaper high-grade ore imports, mainly from Australia and Brazil. Dr. James Wang, Chairman and CEO of CD International commented on the letter of intent, "We are pleased to enter this letter of intent, as we have been proactively sourcing iron ore supply for our Chinese clients. This newly sourced supply could provide us a stable supply of iron ore for our clients in China. Under our new mineral trading model, we believe we can create a profit center while we limit exposure of our capital to market risk. Imported iron ore to China will continue at the levels we are seeing now, or perhaps even grow as we go forward. We actively pursue new mineral suppliers for our clients in China, in both South and North America. As we move forward, we believe we are well positioned to take advantage of increasing demand of iron ore by China in years to come."

Per the letter of intent, CD International agrees to purchase 100,000 metric tons of iron ore (62% to 63% Fe) per month over a period of 12 months. The total shipment over a period of 12 months will be 1.2 million metric tons of iron ore. The monthly supply can be increased to 500,000 metric tons per month or 6 million metric tons of iron ore per year. The initial 12 months contract of 1.2 million metric tons of iron ore values approximately $84 million on basis of the current CIF China price. Read this and more news for CDII at: http://marketnewsupdates.com/news/cdii.html According to Chinese customs data, China's imports of iron ore rose 7.5 percent to a record 1.024 billion tons in 2016. The total topped the 2015 record of 952.84 million tons. China's 2017 March iron ore imports rose 11 percent from the same month a year earlier to the second-highest monthly amount on record, as the world's second-biggest economy ramped up a drive for cheap overseas supply as the cost of domestic output grew. Imports in March were 95.56 million tons, according to data from the General Administration of Customs. For the first quarter of 2017, imports grew 12 percent to 271 million tons. That is a quarterly record. This rise was the result of two factors: resilient steel demand in China (partly driven by government stimulus measures) and the replacement of Chinese domestic iron ore production by the import of cheaper high-grade ore imports, mainly from Australia and Brazil. Dr. James Wang, Chairman and CEO of CD International commented on the letter of intent, "We are pleased to enter this letter of intent, as we have been proactively sourcing iron ore supply for our Chinese clients. This newly sourced supply could provide us a stable supply of iron ore for our clients in China. Under our new mineral trading model, we believe we can create a profit center while we limit exposure of our capital to market risk. Imported iron ore to China will continue at the levels we are seeing now, or perhaps even grow as we go forward. We actively pursue new mineral suppliers for our clients in China, in both South and North America. As we move forward, we believe we are well positioned to take advantage of increasing demand of iron ore by China in years to come."

During the second quarter 2017, the company further modernized one of its galvanizing lines located at its Butler Flat Roll Division, while also expanding the line's annual value-added production capability by an additional 180,000 tons for an investment of approximately $15 million.  The upgrade required the line to be down for three weeks in May, which resulted in higher costs and lower value-added shipments, reducing potential pretax earnings by an estimated $15 million during the second quarter 2017.  Additionally, the company experienced some quality issues related to the start-up of its new Galvalume® and paint line at the Columbus Flat Roll Division, resulting in higher costs and lower value-added shipments, reducing potential second quarter 2017 pretax earnings by an estimated $15 million.  The issues have been clearly identified and are being resolved. Accordingly, second quarter 2017 profitability from the company's steel operations is expected to decrease in comparison to sequential first quarter 2017 results, based on both lower overall shipments and higher average scrap costs.  Second quarter 2017 average steel product pricing is expected to increase; however, higher scrap costs are expected to offset the sales price improvement.  As a reminder, approximately 40 percent of the company's flat roll volume is tied to indexed contracts that generally lag spot pricing by one to two months.  The remaining flat roll volume is based on spot pricing metrics, which were lower sequentially in the second quarter 2017.  Demand from the construction and automotive sectors remain strong, and the energy sector is continuing to strengthen. Second quarter 2017 profitably for the company's metals recycling platform is expected to remain steady compared to the sequential first quarter based on higher average sales price which is being offset by lower shipments, related in part to the sale of certain southeastern locations during the first quarter 2017. Continued strong demand for the company's fabricated steel joist and deck products is an indicator that the non-residential construction market is continuing a positive growth trend.  Second quarter 2017 earnings from the company's fabrication business are expected to remain steady based on increased shipments, which are anticipated to offset metal spread compression related to higher average steel input costs. Cash Dividends The company's board of directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.1550 per common share.  The dividend is payable to shareholders of record at the close of business on June 30, 2017, and is payable on or about July 7, 2017. Steel Dynamics, Inc. is one of the largest domestic steel producers and metals recyclers in the United States based on estimated annual steelmaking and metals recycling capability, with facilities located throughout the United States, and in Mexico.  Steel Dynamics produces steel products, including hot roll, cold roll, and coated sheet steel, structural steel beams and shapes, rail, engineered special-bar-quality steel, cold finished steel, merchant bar products, specialty steel sections and steel joists and deck.  In addition, the company produces liquid pig iron and processes and sells ferrous and nonferrous scrap. This press release contains some predictive statements about future events, including statements related to conditions in the steel and metallic scrap markets, Steel Dynamics' revenues, costs of purchased materials, future profitability and earnings, and the operation of new or existing facilities. These statements, which we generally precede or accompany by such typical conditional words as "anticipate," "intend," "believe," "estimate," "plan," "seek," "project" or "expect," or by the words "may," "will," or "should," are intended to be made as "forward-looking," subject to many risks and uncertainties, within the safe harbor protections of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements speak only as of this date and are based upon information and assumptions, which we consider reasonable as of this date, concerning our businesses and the environments in which they operate. Such predictive statements are not guarantees of future performance, and we undertake no duty to update or revise any such statements. Some factors that could cause such forward-looking statements to turn out differently than anticipated include: (1) the effects of uncertain economic conditions; (2) cyclical and changing industrial demand; (3) changes in conditions in any of the steel or scrap-consuming sectors of the economy which affect demand for our products, including the strength of the non-residential and residential construction, automotive, appliance, pipe and tube, and other steel-consuming industries; (4) fluctuations in the cost of key raw materials (including steel scrap, iron units, and energy costs) and our ability to pass-on any cost increases; (5) the impact of domestic and foreign import price competition; (6) unanticipated difficulties in integrating or starting up new or acquired businesses; (7) risks and uncertainties involving product and/or technology development; and (8) occurrences of unexpected plant outages or equipment failures. More specifically, we refer you to Steel Dynamics' more detailed explanation of these and other factors and risks that may cause such predictive statements to turn out differently, as set forth in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K under the headings Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements and Risk Factors, in our quarterly reports on Form 10-Q or in other reports which we from time to time file with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

"The team delivered a solid performance for the second quarter 2017 despite hesitant customer order entry and significantly higher quarter-over-quarter steel imports," said Mark D. Millett, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our second quarter 2017 income from operations was $265 million with a trailing twelve month adjusted EBITDA record of $1.4 billion.   The decrease in sequential quarterly earnings was principally driven by our flat roll operations, as increased average scrap costs outpaced average sales price growth.  As mentioned in our mid-quarter guidance, we had a planned galvanizing line upgrade at our Butler Flat Roll Division and also experienced some start-up issues at our new Columbus Flat Roll Division paint line, which increased expenses and decreased value-added flat roll shipments in the quarter. "We believe the customer order hesitancy was related to anticipated scrap price changes rather than any underlying softness in demand.  Additionally, customer inventory levels continued to be positioned at historically low levels.  Steel demand from the automotive sector remained steady, as the construction and energy sectors continued to improve," continued Millett. "Second quarter 2017 operating income from our metals recycling platform remained aligned with the strong first quarter performance, in spite of somewhat lower shipments and metal spread, as the team continued to optimize costs throughout the business," continued Millett. "The fabrication group achieved another quarter of record shipments, a solid indicator that the non-residential construction market is continuing a positive growth profile." Second quarter 2017 operating income for the company's steel operations decreased 22 percent, or $79 million, to $274 million sequentially, primarily related to two operational items within the flat roll operations and overall metal spread compression.  During the second quarter 2017, the company further modernized one of its galvanizing lines located at its Butler Flat Roll Division, while also expanding the line's annual value-added production capability by an additional 180,000 tons.  The upgrade required the line to be down for three weeks in May.  Additionally, the company experienced quality issues related to the start-up of its new Galvalume and paint line at its Columbus Flat Roll Division, resulting in line downtime.  Combined, these two items resulted in higher costs and lower value-added shipments, reducing potential second quarter 2017 pretax earnings by an estimated $30 million. The company's average steel product price increased less than consumed raw material scrap costs, resulting in steel metal spread compression.  The second quarter 2017 average product selling price for the company's steel operations increased $36 to $779 per ton.  The average ferrous scrap cost per ton melted increased $39 to $303 per ton. Second quarter 2017 operating income attributable to the company's flat roll products decreased 22 percent when compared to the sequential first quarter.  Operating income from long products decreased 24 percent as a result of an eight percent decrease in shipments, most significantly from the company's Structural and Rail Division, despite record quarterly rail shipments.  Structural and merchant steel volumes remain under pressure from excess domestic production capability, coupled with elevated import levels.  The company's steel production utilization rate was 91 percent in the second quarter 2017, compared to 95 percent in the sequential first quarter and compared to the estimated second quarter domestic industry utilization rate of 74 percent. Second quarter 2017 operating income from the company's metals recycling operations was $20 million, compared to $21 million in the sequential first quarter.  Higher average sales prices were offset by lower shipments, related in part to the company's sale of certain southeastern U.S. locations at the end of the first quarter 2017. The company's fabrication operations recorded second quarter 2017 operating income of $20 million, compared to sequential first quarter results of $24 million.  The platform achieved a second consecutive quarter of record shipments.  However, metal spread compression based on higher average steel input costs more than offset the improved volume. For the six months ended June 30, 2017, net income was $355 million, or $1.46 per diluted share, on net sales of $4.8 billion, as compared to net income of $205 million, or $0.84 per diluted share, on net sales of $3.8 billion for the same period in 2016.  First half 2017 net sales increased 26 percent.  Although all platforms experienced improved revenues, the improvement was driven by higher average steel product pricing.  First half 2017 operating income increased $212 million, or 55 percent, to $600 million, based on improved earnings from the company's steel operations. The average year-to-date selling price for the company's steel operations increased $153 to $761 per ton.  The average year-to-date ferrous scrap cost per ton melted increased $77 to $283 per ton. During the first half of 2017, the company generated strong cash flow from operations of $321 million and maintained liquidity of $2.1 billion at June 30, 2017.  The company also repurchased $138 million of its common stock during the first half of 2017. "We remain optimistic that macroeconomic and market conditions are in place to benefit domestic steel consumption in the coming years," said Millett.  "Although U.S. automotive production has peaked, we believe North American automotive steel consumption will be steady, and that there will be additional growth in the energy and construction sectors, especially for larger, public sector infrastructure projects. "We continue to strengthen our financial position through strong cash flow generation and the execution of our long-term strategy. We are well-positioned for growth, and remain focused on delivering shareholder value through organic and strategic growth opportunities," concluded Millett. Steel Dynamics, Inc. will hold a conference call to discuss second quarter 2017 operating and financial results on Thursday, July 20, 2017, at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time.  You may access the call and find dial-in information on the Investors section of the company's website at www.steeldynamics.com.  A replay of the call will be available on our website until 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on July 25, 2017.
