In Q3 2013, the Company recorded sales of $19.6 billion, down 2.7% QoQ. According to the Company, lower sales in Q3 2013 were due to lower average steel selling prices and marginally lower steel volumes. EBITDA increased by 0.8% QoQ to 1.7 billion during the quarter. Net loss was at $193 million, or $0.12 loss per share, compared to $780 million, or $0.44 loss per share, in Q2 2013. Lakshmi N. Mittal, Chairman and CEO of ArcelorMittal said, "After a weak first half, we have seen third quarter performance improve year-on-year, positively impacted by our cost optimisation efforts and the increased shipments from our mining expansion. We believe that the bottom of the cycle is behind us and expect second half EBITDA, usually comparably weaker, to be at least equal to the first. Although operating conditions remain challenging, as economic indicators are improving we are cautiously optimistic about the prospects for 2014." For full-year 2013, the Company anticipates EBITDA to be more than 6.5 billion.

In Q3 2013, the Company produced 7 million tonnes of run-of-mine coal, reflecting an increase of 0.4% QoQ. In addition, during the quarter, Mechel produced 0.9 million tonnes of pig iron, and 1.1 million tonnes of steel, reflecting a decline of 10.8% QoQ and 12.1% QoQ, respectively. Evgeny Mikhel, CEO of Mechel said, "Coal production volumes on our chief mining enterprises remained on the same level quarter-on-quarter. The 10% decrease in the coking coal sales quarter-on-quarter was due to weaker domestic demand, which was partly compensated by increased export volumes. Sales were also affected by the shipping delays to Asia due to Far Eastern floods. Mechel Bluestone retained coking coal sales on the second-quarter level, In accordance with our long-term strategy, Mechel continues to expand into new markets for metallurgical coals. Over this year's first nine months the company managed to increase its PCI sales by 51% compared to the same period last year due to increased supplies to Asia Pacific, Britain and Belgium. Anthracite sales in the third quarter went down as our European customers partly replaced anthracites for PCI." He added, "The decrease in heat and electricity sales in 9M2013 as compared to the same period last year is due to disposal of several power division assets - primarily Toplofikatsia Rousse EAD."
