Steel Price Rise Not Enough to Meet Thyssenkrupp’s Target
55:25 - Thyssenkrupp AG, Germany’s largest steelmaker, swung to a net loss in the fiscal first quarter as the steel industry tries to weather a drop in prices wrought by record Chinese exports.The net loss was 23 million euros ($26 million) in the three months through December compared with net income of 50 million euros a year earlier, the Essen-based company said Friday in a statement. Thyssenkrupp CFO Guido Kerkhoff told Bloomberg’s Manus Cranny on “Countdown” he doesn’t see “any more windfall losses currently” in steel business.
