MTNA is the world's largest steel producer, which was formed after the 2006 merger between Mittal Steel and Arcelor. ArcelorMittal is the largest steel producer in the Americas, Africa and Europe and is the fifth largest steel producer in the CIS region. ArcelorMittal has steel-making operations in 18 countries on four continents, including 47 integrated and mini-mill steel-making facilities. Since September 2011, ArcelorMittal has been undergoing a deleveraging process to reduce its indebtedness including numerous divestments of non-core assets. Despite the overall strategy of deleveraging, MTNA has completed some strategic acquisitions through a 50/50 JV of Calvert in 2014 and the purchase of Votorantim S.A.'s long business and Ilva S.p.A. in 2017. 2017 sales amounted to $68.7 bn, with steel shipments of 85.2 mn tonnes up 21% YoY from $56.8 bn in the prior year. In terms of geography the largest sales destinations include: US (21%), Germany (9%), France (6%), and Brazil (6%). (29 Nov 2018)
