The net proceeds from the offering are expected to be applied towards repayment of existing debt including the $1 billion outstanding under a $7 billion term facilities agreement entered into in connection with the proposed acquisition of Essar Steel India Limited through a joint venture with Nippon Steel and Sumitomo Metal Corporation (“NSSMC”). The joint venture agreements provide that ArcelorMittal and NSSMC will own 60% and 40%, respectively, of the joint venture’s share capital and will have equal representation and voting rights on its board of directors, such that the joint venture will be considered by the parties to be a jointly controlled entity. ArcelorMittal anticipates that its investment in the joint venture will be equity accounted.
