Luxembourg, July 28, 2022 - 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 results1,2 for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2022.

Key highlights:

  • Health and safety performance: Protecting the health and wellbeing of employees is the Company’s overarching priority; LTIF rate of 0.67x in 2Q 20223 and 0.68x in 1H 2022
  • Steel spreads offsetting lower shipments in 2Q 2022: positive price-cost effect offset a -6.3% sequential decrease in steel shipments to 14.4Mt primarily due to the lower shipments in ACIS and Europe
  • Operating income: 2Q 2022 operating income of $4.5bn (vs. $4.4bn in 1Q 2022); 1H 2022 operating income of $8.9bn (vs. $7.1bn in 1H 2021)
  • EBITDA increased to $5.2bn in 2Q 2022, the fifth successive quarter above the $5bn level; 1H 2022 EBITDA of $10.2bn is +23.5% higher than the same period of 2021
  • Strong net income: $3.9bn in 2Q 2022 (vs. $4.1bn in 1Q 2022) includes share of JV and associates net income of $0.6bn (vs. $0.6bn in 1Q 2022); 1H 2022 net income of $8.0bn (vs. $6.3bn in 1H 2021)
  • Enhanced share value: 2Q 2022 basic EPS of $4.25/sh; last 12 months ROE16 of 34%; book value per share13 increased to $60/sh following the repurchase of 46.8m shares during the quarter (65.1m in 1H’22)
  • Financial strength: Net debt $4.2bn and gross debt of $8.8bn at the end of June 2022
  • Continued strong FCF generation: The Company generated $1.7bn of free cash flow (FCF) in 2Q 2022 ($2.6bn net cash provided by operating activities less capex of $0.7bn and dividends paid to minorities) despite a $1.0bn investment in working capital on account of higher prices

Strategic update and outlook:•    Proposed acquisition of CSP in Brazil for $2.2bn, presents opportunity for new low carbon steelmaking hub:

  • Well invested, world-class assets, access to large-scale deep water port
  • Highest quality and low cost 3Mt slab producer in Northeast Brazil
  • Attractive synergies and optionality, including the potential for highly competitive low-CO2 steel
  • Normalized EBITDA per year of $330 million

•    Texas HBI plant: a key element of ArcelorMittal’s 12Mt, low CO2 steel, unmatched high quality NAFTA franchise including automotive capabilities:

  • Acquisition of voestalpine’s world-class Hot Briquetted Iron (‘HBI’) plant located in Texas now completed; potential to generate > $130 million EBITDA per year
  • A key to decarbonizing NAFTA franchise: will supply high quality metallics to EAF - Calvert (a cornerstone of ArcelorMittal NAFTA franchise). Dofasco is transforming to fully DRI-EAF; Mexico Flat is already DRI-EAF

•     Balanced capital allocation:

  • The Company generated $3.2bn of FCF in 1H 2022; $2.3bn was returned to shareholders (via share buybacks and base dividends) and $1.0bn was committed to M&A (primarily the Texas HBI facility)
  • Net debt at the end of June 2022 of $4.2bn remained essentially stable compared to 2021 year end at $4.0bn

•     New buyback:

  • The Company announces a new buyback program of 60m shares (~$1.4bn at current share price23) to be completed by the end of May 2023

Commenting, Aditya Mittal, ArcelorMittal Chief Executive Officer, said:"The Company had a strong first half with market conditions supporting a fifth consecutive quarter of EBITDA of over $5 billion. This enabled us to progress against our strategic objectives and continue to transform our business for the net zero economy. We have completed a number of targeted acquisitions reflecting the changing energy and metallic inputs required for low-carbon emissions steelmaking and are also seeking to strengthen our presence in regions that have the ability to produce low-cost green hydrogen such as Brazil where we have today announced the proposed acquisition of one of the country’s lowest-cost slab producers.

The period, however, was overshadowed by the outbreak of war in Ukraine, where we have steel and mining operations, bringing instability and suffering to the country and our 26,000 employees. Globally the conflict is impacting growth and adding further inflationary pressure, which is spilling over into weakening of demand. Despite the more uncertain global macro outlook, our business is well positioned to effectively manage through the cycle. The long-term outlook for steel demand also remains positive, underpinned by the scale of opportunity related to the energy transition and the continuing growth of developing economies."

Sustainable development and safety performance

Health and safety - Own personnel and contractors lost time injury frequency rateProtecting the health and wellbeing of employees is the Company’s overarching priority with ongoing strict adherence to World Health Organization guidelines (in respect of COVID-19), and specific government guidelines have been followed and implemented.

Health and safety performance based on own personnel and contractors lost time injury frequency ("LTIF") rate was 0.67x in the second quarter of 2022 ("2Q 2022") as compared to 0.69x in the first quarter of 2022 ("1Q 2022) and 0.89x in the second quarter of 20213 ("2Q 2021"). Health and safety performance in the first six months of 2022 (“1H 2022”) was 0.68x as compared to 0.83x in the first six months of 2021 (“1H 2021”).

A concerted effort is underway to improve health and safety across the group and strengthen our safety culture. We have completed a comprehensive review of our efforts to eradicate accidents and fatalities, and have started 2022 with a refreshed company-wide commitment to put this fully into action.

Corporate oversight of safety has been strengthened, our Global Health & Safety Council is sharing and promoting best practice, peer-to-peer mentoring between sites has been introduced, training (which was reduced as a necessary precaution during COVID-19) has been strengthened and we are prioritizing support for underperforming units.

The Company is also tightening guidelines for mandatory leadership shop floor presence (which similar to training was reduced as a necessary precaution during COVID-19). All leaders must now spend a certain minimum time on the shop floor every week – when they must carry out a safety layered evaluation. While the Company policy has always specified leaders to regularly spend time on the shop floor, setting out a higher minimum accepted level for senior leaders will help reinforce the culture of visible felt leadership which we know has weakened in some regions as a result of COVID-19.

Furthermore reporting of proactive KPIs such as potential serious injury frequency (PSIF) will also be strengthened. Every segment is required to put in place a quality assessment process for PSIFs. Understanding clearly why PSIFs happen is vitally important to tightening processes, improving behaviours and preventing fatalities. Widespread use of what we call ‘quarantining’ is now in place across all operations where plants are put into ‘quarantine’ if a seriously unsafe incident takes place or the plant is deemed to be at risk of a serious incident or fatality.

A change to the Company’s executive remuneration policy has been made to reflect this focus21.

Sustainable development highlights – leading the decarbonization of the steel industry:Developing standards that will support the decarbonization of our industry:

  • On June 14, 2022, ArcelorMittal published a concept for a low-carbon emissions steel standard to help incentivize the decarbonization of steelmaking globally and support the creation of market demand for physical steel products which would be classified as lower, and ultimately near-zero, carbon emissions steel.
    • Dual scoring system which provides customers with a life cycle assessment (LCA) value alongside a rating system which measures progress towards near-zero
    • Designed to incentivize the decarbonization of both primary and secondary steelmaking
    • Provides transparency and consistency across steel products for customers
    • Supports the development of markets for low-carbon emissions steel

The creation of clear definitions for low-carbon emissions physical steel is an important component of ‘demand pull’ and ‘supply push’ mechanisms that are required to support the steel industry in its transition to net zero by 2050. Clear definitions will also help inform targeted policy to support the scale-up and commercialization of these near-zero technologies.

At the heart of the concept are three core principles:

  • It must include a dual score system comprising a LCA value for finished products (EPD for construction products) alongside a decarbonisation rating system which categorizes low and near-zero carbon emissions per tonne of hot rolled steel and rewards producers as they decarbonize from their starting point.
  • It must be designed in such a way that incentivizes the decarbonisation of all methods of steel production through technology shifts, rather than simply through increasing scrap rates using existing technology. This can be done by using a sliding scale based on the percentage of scrap used in production, a system which is also at the heart of the ResponsibleSteel™ and International Energy Agency (‘IEA’) low-carbon emissions steel models.
  • It must include a clearly defined boundary from which carbon emissions are counted for the decarbonization rating system.

The concept is designed to be complementary to methods for rewarding virtual low-carbon steel, at least until significant amounts of physical low-carbon steel are available.

Analysis of results for the six months ended June 30, 2022 versus results for the six months ended June 30, 2021Total steel shipments for 1H 2022 were 29.7 million metric tonnes (Mt), a decrease of -8.7% as compared to 32.6Mt in 1H 2021. Steel shipments on a scope adjusted basis (i.e. excluding the shipments of ArcelorMittal Italia12,17, deconsolidated as from April 14, 2021), decreased by -5.8%. Year on year shipment declines: ACIS -39.0% (primarily due to Russia/Ukraine conflict) and NAFTA -3.7%, offset in part by increased shipments in Brazil +3.6% while Europe remained stable on a scope adjusted basis.

Sales for 1H 2022 increased by 23.8% to $44.0 billion as compared with $35.5 billion for 1H 2021, primarily due to higher average steel selling prices (+37.7%), partly offset by lower steel shipments.

Depreciation of $1.3 billion for 1H 2022 as compared with $1.2 billion in 1H 2021 was broadly stable.

Operating income for 1H 2022 of $8.9 billion was higher as compared to 1H 2021 of $7.1 billion primarily driven by positive price-cost effect offset in part by lower iron ore reference prices (-24.0%).

Income from associates, joint ventures and other investments9 for 1H 2022 was $1.1 billion as compared to $1.0 billion for 1H 2021. 1H 2022 includes higher contribution from European investees (including $0.1 billion income for Acciaierie d'Italia arising from recognition of a deferred tax asset in 2Q 2022) offset in part by lower contributions from AMNS India4 and AMNS Calvert5.1H 2022 includes the annual dividend from Erdemir of $117 million (vs. $89 million received in 1H 2021).

Net interest expense in 1H 2022 of $104 million was lower as compared to $167 million in 1H 2021 following debt repayments and liability management.

Foreign exchange and other net financing losses were $323 million for 1H 2022 as compared to losses of $427 million for 1H 2021. Foreign exchange loss for 1H 2022 was $198 million as compared to a loss of $147 million in 1H 2021. 1H 2021 includes early bond redemption premium expenses of $130 million.

ArcelorMittal recorded an income tax expense of $1,381 million for 1H 2022 (including $214 million deferred tax benefit) as compared to $946 million for 1H 2021 (which included $391 million deferred tax benefit).

ArcelorMittal’s net income for 1H 2022 was $8,048 million as compared to $6,290 million for 1H 2021.

ArcelorMittal’s basic earnings per common share for 1H 2022 was $8.53 basic earnings per common share, as compared to $5.40 basic earnings per common share for 1H 2021.

Analysis of results for 2Q 2022 versus 1Q 2022 and 2Q 2021Total steel shipments in 2Q 2022 were 14.4Mt, -6.3% lower as compared with 15.3Mt in 1Q 2022, largely reflecting the impact of the conflict in Ukraine (ACIS down -41.2%) and weaker shipments in Europe (-4.4%). Comparing to 2Q 2021, and adjusting for the change in scope (i.e. excluding the shipments of ArcelorMittal Italia12,17 deconsolidated as from April 14, 2021), steel shipments in 2Q 2022 decreased by -9.9%: primarily due to ACIS -56.5%, Europe -2.6% (scope adjusted), and NAFTA -5.3% offset in part by Brazil +1.3%.

Sales in 2Q 2022 were $22.1 billion as compared to $21.8 billion for 1Q 2022 and $19.3 billion for 2Q 2021. As compared to 1Q 2022, the +1.4% increase in sales was primarily due to higher average steel selling prices (+7.7%), offset in part by lower steel shipment volumes. Sales in 2Q 2022 were +14.5% higher as compared to 2Q 2021 primarily due to higher average steel selling prices (+30.8%) offset in part by lower iron ore reference prices (-31.2%).

Depreciation for 2Q 2022 was $669 million as compared to $647 million for 1Q 2022 and higher than $620 million in 2Q 2021. Depreciation was higher than 2Q 2021 due to changes in the useful lives estimates for certain assets in Europe and Canada due to decarbonization projects, partially offset by foreign exchange benefit.

Operating income for 2Q 2022 was $4.5 billion as compared to $4.4 billion in 1Q 2022 and 2Q 2021, respectively.

Income from associates, joint ventures and other investments9 for 2Q 2022 was $578 million as compared to $559 million for 1Q 2022 and $590 million in 2Q 2021. 2Q 2022 includes improved contribution from European investees (including $0.1 billion income for Acciaierie d'Italia arising from recognition of a deferred tax asset) offset by a lower contribution from AMNS Calvert5 and AMNS India4 .1Q 2022 also included the annual dividend from Erdemir in the amount of $117 million.

Net interest expense in 2Q 2022 was $53 million as compared to $51 million in 1Q 2022 and lower than $76 million in 2Q 2021, reflecting savings following the repayment of bonds and liability management.

Foreign exchange and other net financing losses in 2Q 2022 were $183 million as compared to losses of $140 million in 1Q 2022 and $233 million in 2Q 2021. 2Q 2022 includes foreign exchange loss of $152 million compared to $46 million in 1Q 2022 and $29 million in 2Q 2021. 2Q 2021 included $130 million related to premium paid for early redemption of bonds.

ArcelorMittal recorded an income tax expense of $826 million (including deferred tax benefit of $74 million) in 2Q 2022 as compared to an income tax expense of $555 million (including deferred tax benefit of $140 million) in 1Q 2022. Income tax expense was higher in 2Q 2022 as compared to 1Q 2022 due to different geographical mix of income, with higher profitability in Brazil and NAFTA regions where tax rates are high. Income tax expense in 2Q 2021 was $542 million (including deferred tax benefit of $226 million).

ArcelorMittal recorded net income for 2Q 2022 of $3,923 million as compared to net income for 1Q 2022 of $4,125 million, as compared to net income of $4,005 million for 2Q 2021. ArcelorMittal's basic earnings per common share for 2Q 2022 was stable at $4.25 as compared to $4.28 in 1Q 2022 and +22.3% higher than $3.47 in 2Q 2021 due to ongoing share buyback programs.

Europe segment crude steel production declined by -4.9% to 8.3Mt in 2Q 2022 as compared to 8.7Mt in 1Q 2022 and -12.0% lower as compared to 2Q 2021. Production was down 2Q 2022 as compared to 1Q 2022 on account of a planned reline in Eisenhüttenstadt and an adjustment of production to lower demand. These same factors and the additional impact of responses to higher energy prices led to a -10.6% decline in 2Q 2022 as compared to 2Q 2021 on a scope adjusted basis17.

Steel shipments declined by -4.4% to 8.0Mt in 2Q 2022 as compared to 8.3Mt in 1Q 2022 and was -3.9% lower as compared to 8.3Mt in 2Q 2021 primarily due to a slowdown in demand. Adjusted for the ArcelorMittal Italia deconsolidation, shipments in 2Q 2022 were -2.6% lower as compared to 2Q 2021.

Sales in 2Q 2022 increased by +3.1% to $13.4 billion, as compared to $13.0 billion in 1Q 2022, primarily due to +6.1% higher average selling prices. Sales were significantly higher than 2Q 2021, and includes the positive impact of automotive contract price resets.

Operating income in 2Q 2022 was $2,063 million as compared to $2,081 million in 1Q 2022 and higher than $1,262 million in 2Q 2021.

EBITDA in 2Q 2022 of $2,389 million decreased by -0.8%, as compared to $2,407 million in 1Q 2022, with the impacts of lower steel shipments and a negative translation effect due to USD appreciation largely being offset by a positive price-cost effect. EBITDA in 2Q 2022 increased significantly as compared to $1,578 million in 2Q 2021 primarily due to a positive price-cost effect, including the impact of contract pricing resets, offset in part by lower steel shipment volumes and a negative translation effect, as above.

ACIS segment crude steel production in 2Q 2022 was -48.6% lower at 1.3Mt as compared to 2.5Mt in 1Q 2022 primarily due to the ongoing reduction of production in Ukraine15 and the impacts from a 2-week labour action and logistic issues in South Africa.

One of the three blast furnaces in Ukraine, blast furnace No.6 which is approximately 20% of Kryvyi Rih capacity, was restarted on April 11, 2022. Iron ore production has been steadily increased to ~55% capacity in 2Q 2022.

Steel shipments in 2Q 2022 decreased by -41.2% to 1.2Mt as compared to 2.1Mt in 1Q 2022 and were lower by -56.5% as compared to 2Q 2021, mainly due to lower production as discussed above.

Sales in 2Q 2022 decreased by -28.9% to $1.5 billion as compared to $2.1 billion in 1Q 2022, primarily due to lower steel shipments offset in part by +8.2% higher average steel selling prices.

Operating income in 2Q 2022 was significantly lower at $43 million (impacts discussed above) as compared to $280 million in 1Q 2022 and $923 million in 2Q 2021.

EBITDA of $149 million in 2Q 2022 was -61.3% lower as compared to $385 million in 1Q 2022, primarily due to lower steel shipments and higher costs including labour action and logistic issues in ArcelorMittal South Africa ($0.1 billion). EBITDA in 2Q 2022 was lower as compared to $1,033 million in 2Q 2021 due to lower steel shipments (down 1.6Mt).

Iron ore production increased in 2Q 2022 by +5.2% to 7.3Mt as compared to 6.9Mt in 1Q 2022 and was +49.3% higher as compared to 2Q 2021. Higher production in 2Q 2022 was primarily due to recovery of production in AMMC following seasonally lower production driven by severe weather conditions in the prior quarter. 2Q 2021 production was significantly lower primarily due to the impact of a 4-week labour action at AMMC6.

Iron ore shipments increased in 2Q 2022 by +12.5% to 7.5Mt as compared to 6.7Mt in 1Q 2022, primarily driven by improved shipments at AMMC (following seasonality and associated logistics issues in 1Q 2022). 2Q 2022 iron ore shipments increased by +66.3% as compared to 2Q 2021 for the reasons discussed above.

Operating income in 2Q 2022 was $463 million as compared to $511 million in 1Q 2022 and $508 million in 2Q 2021.

EBITDA in 2Q 2022 decreased by -7.0% to $527 million as compared to $567 million in 1Q 2022, largely reflecting the effect of lower iron ore reference prices (-2.7%), lower market premia for higher quality products, and higher freight costs offset in part by higher shipments (+12.5%). EBITDA in 2Q 2022 was lower as compared to $564 million in 2Q 2021, primarily due to lower iron ore reference prices (-31.2%), and higher freight costs offset in part by higher shipments (+66.3%).

Joint venturesArcelorMittal has investments in various joint ventures and associate entities globally. The Company considers the Calvert (50% equity interest) and AMNS India (60% equity interest) joint ventures to be of particular strategic importance, warranting more detailed disclosures to improve the understanding of their operational performance and value to the Company.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Net cash provided by operating activities for 2Q 2022 was $2,554 million as compared to $2,034 million in 1Q 2022 and $2,312 million in 2Q 2021. Net cash provided by operating activities in 2Q 2022 includes a working capital investment of $1,008 million as compared to investments of $2,047 million in 1Q 2022 and $1,901 million in 2Q 2021. 2Q 2022 working capital requirements were driven by relatively robust finished steel prices and elevated raw material prices. Based on current market conditions, the Company expects a working capital release in 2H 2022.

Capex in 2Q 2022 of $655 million compared with $529 million in 1Q 2022 and $569 million in 2Q 2021. FY 2022 capex guidance has been reduced by $0.3 billion to $4.2 billion (from $4.5 billion previous guidance) implying 2H 2022 capex of ~$3.0 billion. The reduction in capex guidance reflects timing of cash capex, with slightly delayed capex on strategic projects14 in Brazil and lower activity including Ukraine.

Net cash used in other investing activities in 2Q 2022 was $886 million (primarily related to the acquisition of an 80% shareholding in voestalpine’s world-class Hot Briquetted Iron (‘HBI’) plant located in Corpus Christi, Texas), as compared to $77 million in 1Q 2022 and compared to net cash provided by other investing activities of $687 million in 2Q 2021 primarily related to $0.7 billion cash received from the sale of 38.2 million Cleveland Cliffs shares.

Net cash used in financing activities in 2Q 2022 was $1,651 million as compared to $185 million in 1Q 2022 and $3,780 million in 2Q 2021. In 2Q 2022, ArcelorMittal signed a Schuldschein loan agreement for a total amount of €725 million, which was more than offset by a reduction in commercial paper outstanding, the repurchase of 46.8 million shares for a total value of $1.5 billion and total dividends of $498 million ($332 million paid to ArcelorMittal shareholders and $166 million primarily paid to minority shareholders of AMMC). In 1Q 2022, net cash used in financing activities included an inflow from commercial paper portfolio offset by the reimbursement of an outstanding bond paid at maturity and repurchase of 18.3 million shares for a total value of $569 million (of which $65 million was settled in early April 2022). In 2Q 2021, net cash used in financing activities included an outflow of $2.2 billion primarily related to various bond repurchases, share buybacks and dividends.

Key recent developments

•      On July 28, 2022, ArcelorMittal announced it has signed an agreement with the shareholders of Companhia Siderúrgica do Pecém (‘CSP’) to acquire CSP for an enterprise value of approximately $2.2 billion. Transaction closing is subject to certain corporate and regulatory approvals, including CADE (Brazilian antitrust) approval which is expected by late 2022.

CSP is a world-class operation, producing high-quality slab at a globally competitive cost. CSP’s state-of-the-art steel facility in the state of Ceará in northeast Brazil was commissioned in 2016 and produced its first slabs in June of that year. It operates a three million tonne capacity blast furnace and has access via conveyors to the Port of Pecém, a large scale, deep water port located 10 kilometers from the plant. CSP operates within Brazil’s first Export Processing Zone, and benefits from various tax incentives including a low corporate income tax rate.

The acquisition brings several strategic benefits to ArcelorMittal, including the potential to:

  • Expand the Company’s position in the high-growth Brazilian steel industry.
  • Capitalise on the significant planned third-party investment to form a clean electricity and green hydrogen hub in Pecém.
  • Add 3 million tonnes of high-quality and cost-competitive slab capacity, with the potential to supply slab intra-group or to sell into North and South America.
  • Allow for further expansions by the Company, such as the option to add primary steelmaking capacity (including direct reduced iron) and rolling and finishing capacity.
  • Capture over $50 million of identified synergies, including SG&A, procurement and process optimization.

The state of Ceará has ambitions to develop a low-cost green hydrogen hub. The Pecém Green Hydrogen Hub, a partnership between the Pecém Complex and Linde, a leading global industrial gases and engineering company, is a large-scale green hydrogen project at the Port of Pecém which is targeting to produce up to 5GW of renewable energy and 900 kt/y of green hydrogen in a series of phases. The first phase, which the partnership currently expects to be completed over the course of the next five years, targets the construction of 100-150MW of renewable energy capacity.

  • On July 21, 2022, ArcelorMittal and automotive supplier Gestamp announced that they have successfully trialed the use of low-carbon emissions steel for use in car parts that will ultimately be used in the production of vehicles in Europe. The two companies have signed an agreement to strengthen cooperation on sustainability, specifically in the production of low-carbon emissions steel parts and are working closely to ensure that ArcelorMittal’s steel meets all Gestamp’s technical requirements. Using Usibor® 1500 made with XCarb® recycled and renewably produced substrate, Gestamp has successfully trialed the first parts (such as a car’s tunnel, and seat reinforcements) in press-hardenable steel, which is ultra high-strength and therefore enables car manufacturers to achieve excellent weight reductions across the vehicle. XCarb® recycled and renewably produced is a decarbonized product made with a very high proportion of recycled steel in an EAF and 100% renewable electricity. The steel used by Gestamp has a carbon footprint that is almost 70% lower than the same product made without XCarb® recycled and renewable steel. 
  • On July 1, 2022, ArcelorMittal announced that following receipt of customary regulatory approvals, it had completed the acquisition of an 80% shareholding in voestalpine’s Hot Briquetted Iron (‘HBI’) plant located near Corpus Christi, Texas on June 30, 2022. The acquisition, announced in April 2022, values the Corpus Christi operations at $1 billion. The state-of-the-art plant is one of the largest of its kind in the world. It has an annual capacity of two million tonnes of HBI, which is a premium, compacted form of Direct Reduced Iron (‘DRI’) developed to overcome issues associated with shipping and handling DRI. The transaction enhances ArcelorMittal’s ability to produce the high-quality input materials required for low-carbon emissions steelmaking, and reinforces the Company’s position as a world leader in DRI production. In parallel with the transaction, ArcelorMittal signed a long-term offtake agreement with voestalpine to supply an annual volume of HBI commensurate to voestalpine’s equity stake. Any future development of the site will be 100% owned by ArcelorMittal. The remaining balance of production will be delivered to third parties, and to ArcelorMittal facilities, including to AM/NS Calvert in Alabama, upon the commissioning of its 1.5 million tonne EAF. 
  • On June 9, 2022, ArcelorMittal announced that it had completed the US$1 billion share buyback program it had announced on May 5, 2022 under the authorization given by the annual general meeting of shareholders of May 4, 2022. By market close on 8 June 2022, ArcelorMittal had repurchased 33,349,597 shares for a total value of €942,577,580.32 (equivalent to $1 billion at an approximate average price per share of €28.26. All details are available on the Company’s website at: https://corporate.arcelormittal.com/investors/equity-investors/share-buyback-program. 
  • On June 1, 2022, ArcelorMittal and the government of Spain signed an agreement in which the government has pledged its financial support for the decarbonization of the company’s steelmaking sites in Asturias and in Sestao, in the Basque Country. The funding, which is part of the government’s Recovery and Resilience Plan, will support the construction of an electric arc furnace and DRI plant in Gijón, which are crucial to the cmpany’s CO2 emissions reduction goals in Europe. The implementation of this project represents the first step of the company’s decarbonization journey in Asturias. In order to implement the described transformation of the site in Asturias, an application has been submitted under the EU’s CEEAG framework, and is awaiting approval from the European Commission before the project can proceed. 
  • On May 25, 2022, ArcelorMittal launched the XCarb™ Accelerator Programme to support breakthrough technology start-up and drive decarbonization. Breakthrough technology start-ups worldwide have been invited to submit applications to compete for investment from ArcelorMittal’s XCarb™ Innovation Fund, which aims to invest up to $100 million annually in such transformative technologies, and access to ArcelorMittal’s advice and expertise in innovation, research and development, technology commercialization and business mentorship. 
  • On May 24, 2022, ArcelorMittal announced that it had achieved ResponsibleSteel™ certification for its Asturias Cluster in Spain and ArcelorMittal Méditerranée in France – the company’s first sites to be certified in both France and Spain. 
  • On May 18, 2022, ArcelorMittal announced that 60 million treasury shares had been cancelled to keep the number of treasury shares the Company holds within appropriate levels. As a result of this cancellation, ArcelorMittal has 877,809,772 shares in issue (compared to 937,809,772 before the cancellation).

Cost improvement plan

In February 2022, the Company had announced a new 3-year $1.5 billion value plan focused on creating value through well-defined commercial and operational initiatives (excluding the impact of strategic projects which are followed separately). The plan includes commercial initiatives, including volume/mix improvements and operational improvements (primarily in variable costs). The plan is of strategic importance and aims at protecting the EBITDA potential of the business from the rising inflationary pressures that are being faced by the Company. The Company believes that improving its relative competitive position vis-a-vis its peers can support sustainably higher profits.

Capital return

Following the completion of its previously announced buyback plans, the Company announces a new buyback program to purchase a further 60 million shares (~$1.4 billion at current share price) to be completed by the end of May 2023. This is the maximum shares purchasable under current shareholder authorization.

Outlook

Inflationary pressures have escalated during 1H 2022 presenting significant headwinds to economic activity. The impacts on consumer and business confidence are leading to a slowdown in real demand, which has been exacerbated by destocking activity, resulting in apparent demand below real demand levels and a normalization of steel spreads.

The potential for energy supply restrictions presents a clear but, as yet, uncertain risk to economic activity in Europe.

The Company highlights the potential downside risks to the demand forecasts presented at 1Q 2022 results, particularly to the forecast demand for Europe, given gas supply risks, and China given the impact of COVID-related lockdowns. ArcelorMittal is well positioned to navigate the uncertainties around European gas supply given its predominantly blast furnace based capacity across multiple sites in 9 EU countries.

The longer-term fundamental outlook for steel is positive. China’s focus on decarbonization and removal of VAT-rebates on steel exports are encouraging; so too are the actions taken by governments to protect against the threats of unfair trade. And we know that steel will play a critical and vital role in the transition to a decarbonized and circular economy – there is no substitute.

a) On September 28, 2017, ArcelorMittal announced a major $1.0 billion investment program at its Mexican operations, which is focused on building ArcelorMittal Mexico’s downstream capabilities, sustaining the competitiveness of its mining operations and modernizing its existing asset base. The program is designed to enable ArcelorMittal Mexico to meet the anticipated increased demand requirements from domestic customers, realize in full ArcelorMittal Mexico’s production capacity of 5.3Mt and significantly enhance the proportion of higher added-value products in its product mix. The main investment is the construction of a new hot strip mill which will (after full ramp up) enable ArcelorMittal Mexico to produce c.2.5Mt of flat rolled steel, long steel c.1.5Mt and the remainder made up of semi-finished slabs. Coils from the hot strip mill are supplied to domestic, non-auto, general industry customers. The hot strip mill project commenced late 4Q 2017, and the first coils were produced at the end of 2021. Ramp up now underway and on track to reach ca. 60% capacity in 2H’22. Current expected EBITDA benefit in 2022 of ~$0.1 billion. The project is estimated to add approximately $250 million in EBITDA on full completion and post ramp up. The hot skin pass mill (HSPM) first coil was produced at the end of 1H 2022. In addition to the HSM project, a push pull pickling line (PPPL) is to be constructed to capture additional domestic volume through hot rolled pickled and oiled products. The PPPL will have a capacity of up to 0.75Mtpa, and the first pickled and oiled coils are expected to be produced by 2H 2024.

b) Investment in ArcelorMittal Dofasco (Canada) to modernize the hot strip mill. The project is to install two new state of the art coilers and runout tables to replace three end of life coilers. The strip cooling system was upgraded and includes innovative power cooling technology to improve product capability. The project was completed in 1H 2022 with all equipment fully operating. The project is estimated to add >$25 million of EBITDA on full completion and post ramp up.

c) Investment to replace #5 Hot-Dip Galvanizing Line Galvanneal coating capability with 160kt/year Aluminum Silicon (AluSi®) capability for the production of ArcelorMittal’s patented Usibor® Press Hardenable Steel for automotive structural and safety components. With the investment, ArcelorMittal Dofasco will become the only Canadian producer of AluSi® coated Usibor®. This investment complements additional strategic North America developments, including a new EAF and caster at Calvert in the US and a new hot strip mill in Mexico, and will allow to capitalize on increasing Auto Aluminized PHS demand in North America. The project is expected to be completed in 2022, with the first coil planned for 2H 2022. The project is estimated to add >$40 million of EBITDA on full completion and post ramp up.

d) In February 2021, ArcelorMittal announced the resumption of the Vega Do Sul expansion to provide an additional 700kt of cold-rolled annealed and galvanized capacity to serve the growing domestic market. The ~$0.35 billion investment programme to increase rolling capacity with construction of a new continuous annealing line and CGL combiline (and the option to add a ca. 100kt organic coating line to serve construction and appliance segments), and upon completion, will strengthen ArcelorMittal’s position in the fast growing automotive and industry markets through Advanced High Strength Steel products. The investments will look to facilitate a wide range of products and applications whilst further optimizing current ArcelorMittal Vega facilities to maximize site capacity and its competitiveness, considering comprehensive digital and automation technology. Civil and steel structure erection works at Combiline building is ongoing. Equipment erection at Acid Regeneration Plant #2 is progressing. The project is expected to be completed in 4Q 2023 and estimated to add >$0.1 billion of EBITDA on full completion and post ramp up.

e) ArcelorMittal Liberia has been operating 5Mt direct shipping ore (DSO) since 2011 (Phase 1). In 2013, the Company had started construction of a Phase 2 project that envisaged the construction of 15Mtpa of concentrate sinter fines capacity and associated infrastructure; this project was then suspended due to the onset of Ebola in West Africa and the subsequent force-majeure declaration by the onsite contracting companies. On September 10, 2021, ArcelorMittal signed with the Government of the Republic of Liberia an amendment to its Mineral Development Agreement which is currently under the legislative ratification process. Detailed construction design is well advanced. Main civil works contract progressing to plan, whilst tenders for key construction contracts and remaining equipment are underway. Under this project, first concentrate product is expected in late 2023, ramping up to 15Mtpa thereafter. The capex required to conclude the project, previously estimated at approximately $0.8 billion, is under review given impacts of inflation and enlarged scope. Under the agreement, the Company has further expansion opportunities up to 30Mtpa. Other users may be allowed to invest for additional rail capacity. The project is estimated to add approximately $250 million of EBITDA on full completion and post ramp up.

f) ArcelorMittal Mexico is investing ~$150 million to increase pellet feed production by 1Mtpa to 2.3Mtpa and improve concentrate grade in Las Truchas. This project will enable concentrate production to the blast furnace (BF) route (2.0Mtpa) and DRI route (0.3Mtpa) for a total of 2.3Mtpa. Primary target is to supply ArcelorMittal Mexico steel operations with high quality feed. All equipment purchase orders were placed and construction phase in approval process to start with civil construction of main buildings. Production start-up is estimated in 2H 2023 and estimated to add approximately $50 million of EBITDA on full completion and post ramp up.

g) Approximately $350 million investment at Serra Azul (Brazil) to construct facilities to produce 4.5Mtpa of DRI quality pellet feed to primarily supply ArcelorMittal Mexico steel operation. The project will allow to mine the compact itabirite iron ore. Environmental and operations licenses have been cleared. Detailed engineering is ongoing, earthworks have begun and procurement of main equipment is nearing completion. Civil works of auxiliary buildings completed. Project start-up is estimated in 2H 2023. The project is estimated to add ~$100 million of EBITDA on full completion and post ramp up.

h) The Monlevade upstream expansion project consisting of the sinter plant, blast furnace and meltshop has recommenced in late 2021, following the anticipated improvement in Brazil domestic market. Detailed engineering is ongoing. Piling, civil works and erection to be started. The project is estimated to be completed in 2H 2024 with a capex requirement of approximately $0.5 billion. The project is estimated to add >$0.2 billion of EBITDA on full completion and post ramp up.

i) Investment in ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih to build a 5.0Mtpa pellet plant which, together with the ongoing modernization of Sinter Plant 2, will ensure that all sinter operations in Kryvyi Rih are compliant with dust emissions environmental regulations and will enable cost reduction, quality and productivity improvement. In addition, the project will enable a CO2 footprint improvement by 750kt CO2/yr. First pellet was initially expected to be produced in 4Q 2023 with a capex requirement of approximately $0.3 billion; however the project is on hold and has been suspended with the revised completion date and budget dependent on when the project can be effectively resumed due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The project is estimated to add approximately $70 million in EBITDA on full completion and post ramp up.

j) ~$0.25 billion investment in sections mill at Barra Mansa (Brazil) with 400ktpa production capacity. The aim of the project is to deliver higher added value products (HAV) (Merchant Bar and Special Bars) to increase domestic market share in HAV products and to enhance profitability. Main equipment is contracted, disassembling of old mill to open space for the new equipment ongoing. The project commenced in 2022 and is expected to be completed by 1Q 2024. The project is estimated to add $0.1 billion of EBITDA on full completion and post ramp up.

k) This $0.6 billion investment, combining solar and wind power, will be supported by Greenko’s hydro pumped storage project, which helps to overcome the intermittent nature of wind and solar power generation. The project is owned and funded by ArcelorMittal. Greenko will design, construct and operate the facilities in Andhra Pradesh, Southern India. AMNS India will enter into a 25 year off-take agreement with ArcelorMittal to purchase 250 MW of renewable electricity annually from the project, resulting in over 20% of the electricity requirement at AMNS India’s Hazira plant coming from renewable sources, reducing carbon emissions by approximately 1.5Mt per year. The project commissioning is expected by mid-2024 and estimated to add $70 million of EBITDA (excluding savings at AMNS India) upon completion. The Company is studying the option to develop a second phase which would double the installed capacity.

  8. XCarb™ is designed to bring together all of ArcelorMittal’s reduced, low and zero-carbon products and steelmaking activities, as well as wider initiatives and green innovation projects, into a single effort focused on achieving demonstrable progress towards carbon neutral steel. Alongside the new XCarb™ brand, we have launched three XCarb™ initiatives: the XCarb™ innovation fund, XCarb™ green steel certificates and XCarb™ recycled and renewably produced for products made via the Electric Arc Furnace route using scrap. The Company is offering green steel using a system of certificates (XCarb® green certificates). These will be issued by an independent auditor to certify tonnes of CO2 savings achieved through the Company’s investment in decarbonization technologies in Europe. Net-zero equivalence is determined by assigning CO2 savings certificates equivalent to CO2 per tonne of steel produced in 2018 as the reference. The certificates will relate to the tonnes of CO2 saved in total, as a direct result of the decarbonization projects being implemented across a number of its European sites.
  9. In addition to the AMNS India and Calvert joint ventures, the Company has important investments in China that provide valuable dividend streams and growth optionality.

The business is performing well and plans to expand the current capacity by 40% to 2Mtpa over the next 2 years, financed from its own resources. The investment will allow VAMA to broaden its product portfolio and further enhance its competitiveness. This will in turn enable VAMA to meet the growing demand of high value add solutions from the Chinese automotive / new energy vehicle (NEV) market and propel it to be among the top automotive steel players in China by 2025.
