Gerdau Reportedly Plans To Acquire VISA Steel

Gerdau S.A. (BOVESPA:GGBR4) has shown an interest in acquiring a stake in VISA Steel Ltd. (BSE:532721), sources said.

NIPPON STEEL And Gerdau In Talks To Stave Off Rival Bid For Stake In Usiminas

NIPPON STEEL & SUMITOMO METAL CORPORATION (TSE:5401) and Gerdau S.A. (BOVESPA:GGBR4) are in discussion to stave off a rival $2.9 billion bid for a stake in Usinas Siderúrgicas de Minas Gerais S.A. (BOVESPA:USIM5) (Usiminas), said two people familiar with the negotiations. Nippon Steel may exercise its right of first refusal and acquire its partners in Usiminas in order to thwart the takeover offer from Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional (CSN), said the people. Nippon Steel would then resell to Gerdau part of the 26% stake in Usiminas now held by Camargo Correa S.A. and Grupo Votorantim, the people stated. CSN Chief Executive Officer Benjamin Steinbruch has been in talks with Camargo Correa and Votorantim Participacoes S.A. and offered to buy their voting stock for BRL 40 each, valuing the 26% stake at BRL 5 billion ($2.9 billion), said the same people. In an e-mailed statement Gerdau stated that it’s not involved in negotiations to acquire Usiminas. Nippon Steel is also considering making an offer for the 10.1% voting stake held by the pension fund for Usiminas employees, which CSN is also trying to acquire, according to the people. The fund has hired Credit Suisse Group AG to manage the sale, they said. Usiminas has sought backing from Brazil’s government to block CSN’s takeover attempt, a government official familiar with the issue said. Last week, Usiminas representatives and antitrust officials from the finance and justice ministries met to discuss the stake purchases, said the official, who asked not to be identified. Usiminas confirmed in an e-mailed statement on Septembe 13, 2014 that it met with antitrust officials to “seek clarification from a competitive standpoint”. Usiminas’ shares rose 3.5%, Gerdau’s shares climbed 3.9% and CSN’s shares rose 2.4%.

Gerdau Unit to Lay Off 200 Workers

Gerdau will start laying off 200 employees at its Pindamonhangaba steel plant in October, 2015, when 70 workers laid off in May, 2015 are due to return to work. The company justified the move as a way to adjust steel output and demand while avoiding redundancies. A third lay off stage may be negotiated if demand does not pick up.
