Tata Steel and Rio Tinto sign agreement on HIsarnaTata Steel and Rio Tinto have signed a licensing agreement to further support technological andcommercial development of the environmentally friendly direct iron smelting process called HIsarna.The agreement covers how both parties will work together, sharing their existing knowledge of the twotechnologies that are combined in the new process. It also covers how benefits from future successfulmarketing of the technology will be made available to both parties, as well as to the members ofUlcos, the consortium of European steelmakers in whose name the project is being carried out.SECURING COAL SUPPLIESTata already has a stake in Riversdales Benga coking coal project in Mozambique with an agreementto buy supply from the mine.Under Australian rules, Tata and CSN can continue to increase their stakes in Riversdale by 3 percentevery six months without being forced to make a full takeover offer.The two companies would probably like to see Rio Tinto, with deeper pockets and more technologicalskills than Riversdale, developing Riversdales Mozambique mines and infrastructure, analysts said.At the same time the steelmakers might want the coal mine to remain out of Rios hands, becausethey do not want coking coal supplies to come under as tight a control as iron ore, where supplies arelargely controlled by three miners, including Rio.
ACQUISITIONS AND MERGERS OF TATAWith the takeover of two British automobile marquees Jaguar and Land Rover, the $28.8billion Tata group, with 98 companies in its fold, will add another prominent entry to itsgrowing roster of global acquisitions.Barely a year ago, it paid over $12 billion to acquire Anglo-Dutch steel maker Corus, inwhat remains the largest buy-out deal overseas by an Indian company till date.The holding arm of the group that has 27 listed companies - maintain, the appetite forsuch mega mergers and acquisitions is only growing with each deal.Tata Steel has made three major acquisitions worth some $13 billion in the past fewyears.
Tata Steel signs definitive agreement with SSI for sale of TCPTata Steel UK Limited (Tata Steel) has signed a definitive sale agreement to sell certainassets of Teesside Cast Products (TCP) to Sahaviriya Steel Industries UK Limited (SSI), asubsidiary of Thailand’s largest steel producer, in a deal valuing the business at $469million.The agreement is the most significant achievement in the 22 months since Tata Steelbegan an exhaustive search for an alternative future for TCP, after the illegal withdrawalby a consortium of offtakers from a 10-year supply agreement. Both parties have worked hard since August to reach a successful outcome on what hasbeen a complex negotiation. This is a significant inward investment by SSI which will helpto sustain the 700 jobs at the plant and create new ones at the site and the wider localeconomy.The deal will also result in Tata Steel and SSI entering into a joint venture to operateRedcar Wharf (TCP’s bulk terminal), giving Tata Steel the flexibility to use Teesside toserve its other steelmaking operations, while also meeting SSI’s requirements onTeesside.
Tata SteelThe company, which celebrated its centenary in August last year, wants to boost itsannual output of 8.7 million tonnes to 15 million tonnes by 2010, and take it upwards to30 million tonnes by 2030. More stunning moves on the mergers and acquisition frontcan definitely be expectedIn January 2007, the group pulled off Indias biggest ever takeover of an overseascompany to buy Anglo-Dutch steel-maker Corus in a $12 billion deal that made it thecombined entity the worlds fifth largest producer of the commodity.This came just over a year after it acquired Singapores NatSteel, which also has apresence in Thailand, China, Malaysia, Vietnam, the Philippines and Australia followedby the acquisition of Thailands Millennium Steel for a $421 million.
Tata Steel greenfield project in Iran on hold?Tata Steel said that it was working on “some issues” pertaining to the undertaking. Thereports attributed the decision to put the project on hold to political uncertainty and largergeopolitical concerns.Earlier, Essar Group had dropped plans to develop an oil refinery in the Persian Gulfnation. Tata Steel has put its 3 million tonne a year greenfield steel project in Iran onhold because of political uncertainty.The decision has been made for reasons not related to business, but larger geopoliticalconcerns. Activities on the Iran project have been at a complete standstill for twomonths.Tata Steel signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Persian Gulf SpecialEconomic Zone last year for land and other infrastructural facilities in the SEZ at BandarAbbas, the Metal Bulletin said.Under the MoU, Tata had agreed to set up a direct reduced iron-based steel plant withan annual capacity of 3 million tonnes and this could be scaled upto 5 MT. The Iranianproject was supposed to be owned by a Tata Steel subsidiary, with the entire productiontargetting the export market.
Govt must act together on WTO issues.Indian steel producers, consumers and the government should report "aberrantbehaviour" to seek redressal of trade-related issues within the ambit of the WTOsystem.Concerted efforts of the state, producers and consumers are needed to tackletrade-related problems. Sustained vigilance and preparedness on the part of allthe interested parties and a proactive administration hold the key to the solutionsof such threats. To advocate and enforce the rights of the affected parties, full useof WTO forum would be made.In the domestic market, the steel industry faced increased competition fromcheap imports from countries with highly depreciated currencies... resulting inintense pressure on domestic prices. The problem has been further accentuatedby large-scale replacement of prime imports by low-priced imports of non-standard defectives posing a grave threat to producers and users of steel alike.
Conclusion• After conducting an in depth study of one of India’s most admired companies, we find that the company has many strengths and opportunities which it may capitalize on to truly become a world leader in steel making along with setting high standards for corporate citizenship and social responsibility towards a long term sustainable growth. 35
