U.S. Steel Corp. probably is close to announcing a divestiture of its still-profitable Slovakian steel mill, research firm Steel Market Intelligence said Monday, and “even in this very difficult environment, a sale or (joint venture) with a local partner could yield meaningful cash proceeds.”
The Downtown-based steel maker has said it's considering an offer for its last European steel mill. The company might use cash proceeds for a joint venture acquisition of ThyssenKrupp AG's U.S. operations, or invest in organic growth such as iron ore expansion, the research firm said.
