Russia to buy U.S. Steel Mill for $810 Million


en.rian.ru

"The purchase of the Sparrows Point [steel mill] adds to our portfolio of American assets. The plant already has significant value and possesses the potential for growth," the company said in a press-release by its CEO, Alexei Mordashev.
Sparrows Point is located in Baltimore County, Maryland, and is owned by ArcelorMittal, a joint venture between Indian Mittal and Luxemburg Arcelor.
The U.S. Department of Justice demanded in February 2007 that ArcelorMittal sell Sparrows Point in a bid to prevent a monopolization of the market after the merger of Mittal Steel and Luxemburg Arcelor.
Sparrows Point produces 3.6m tons of steel per year. It is the only integrated producer of rolled metal on the east Coast of the U.S., and is also one of the leading American suppliers of tin.

Awesome. More U.S. assets being sold off to foreign interests. More potential U.S. revenue going to another country. No need to even outsource anymore, the gov can just sanction the sales of all of our domestic companies to foreign ones. Way to keep gutting our infrastucture out boys. Maybe we can sell our Concrete and Housing firms next. Oh wait, we already sold our largest House building firm to the Saudi's recently. I forgot.

Unless I read wrong, Russia is buying the company from another foreign country.

What's wrong with this? America owns a lot of the production in China. This is nothing more than a healthy global economy. Stop being so mercantilist, folks!

I don't know where you are from, but in my life time I have watched as my country allowed one of the largest sell offs in Global history to foreign investors. It has changed the face of my country irreversibly. It has gone far beyond healthy in any sense of the word. Disastrous is more like it.
