Item 8.01

Other Events.

On May 15, 2024, Metallus Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an agreement to purchase a group annuity contract from The Prudential Insurance Company of America (“Prudential”) in connection with the termination of the TimkenSteel Corporation Retirement Plan (the “Salaried Pension Plan”). The Salaried Pension Plan termination settles approximately $121 million of the Company’s remaining U.S. pension obligations. Prudential will pay future benefits under the group annuity contract starting August 1, 2024 for all remaining participants in the Salaried Pension Plan. Benefits payable to Salaried Pension Plan participants will not be reduced as a result of this transaction. The group annuity contract will be purchased using existing assets of the Salaried Pension Plan and requires no cash contribution from the Company. The Company expects to realize a non-cash pension settlement gain of approximately $3 million in the second quarter of 2024.






Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
