São Paulo, November 29, 2023 – Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional (“CSN”) (NYSE: SID) announced today that its subsidiary, CSN Resources S.A. (“CSN Resources”), has commenced a cash tender offer (the “Tender Offer”) for any and all of its outstanding 7.625% Senior Unsecured Guaranteed Notes due 2026 (the “Notes”). The Notes are fully, unconditionally and irrevocably guaranteed by CSN.

The following table sets forth the material pricing terms of the Tender Offer:

Regulation S: L21779AD2 / USL21779AD28

US$300,000,000 US$1,010.00

__________________

(1)The amount to be paid for each US$1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase. In addition, accrued interest up to, but excluding, the settlement date (“Accrued Interest”) will be paid.

The Tender Offer is scheduled to expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on December 5, 2023, unless extended or earlier terminated as described in this press release (such time, as may be extended, the “Expiration Time”). Holders of Notes who validly tender (and do not validly withdraw) their Notes or deliver a properly completed and duly executed notice of guaranteed delivery (the “Notice of Guaranteed Delivery”) at or prior to the Expiration Time will be eligible to receive the purchase price set forth in the table above for each US$1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase, plus Accrued Interest. Validly tendered Notes may be validly withdrawn at any time at or prior to the Expiration Time, unless extended or earlier terminated as described below, but not thereafter.

CSN Resources’ obligation to purchase Notes validly tendered pursuant to the Tender Offer is subject to market conditions and the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions described in the Offer to Purchase, dated November 29, 2023 (the “Offer to Purchase”), including the completion by CSN Resources of new debt financing on satisfactory terms and conditions. However, the Tender Offer is not conditioned on any minimum amount of Notes being tendered. Subject to applicable law, CSN Resources expressly reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to amend or terminate the Tender Offer in its sole discretion, subject to disclosure and other requirements under applicable law, including if any of the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase are not satisfied. If the Tender Offer is terminated at any time, Notes tendered will be promptly returned to the tendering holders without compensation or cost to such holders and will remain outstanding. Furthermore, CSN Resources reserves the right, in its sole discretion, not to accept any tenders of Notes for any reason.

CSN Resources and its affiliates reserve the absolute right, in their sole discretion, from time to time to redeem or purchase any Notes that remain outstanding after the Expiration Time through open market purchases, privately negotiated transactions, tender offers, exchange offers or otherwise, upon such terms and at such prices as they may determine, which may be more or less than the price to be paid pursuant to the Tender Offer.

Settlement of the Tender Offer is expected to occur on the third business day following the Expiration Time, unless the Tender Offer is terminated prior to such date. Tendered Notes may be withdrawn at any time at or prior to the earlier of the Expiration Time and, in the event that the Tender Offer is extended, the tenth business day after commencement of the Tender Offer. Tendered Notes may be withdrawn at any time after the 60th business day after commencement of the Tender Offer if for any reason the Tender Offer has not been consummated within 60 business days after commencement.

Upon the terms and subject to the conditions of the Tender Offer set forth in the Offer to Purchase, all Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn or with respect to which a properly completed and duly executed Notice of Guaranteed Delivery (as described in the Offer to Purchase) is delivered at or prior to the Expiration Time, as applicable, will be accepted for purchase. The complete terms and conditions of the Tender Offer are described in the Offer to Purchase and the Notice of Guaranteed Delivery, copies of which may be obtained from D.F.
