Subsequent to providing updated 2011 guidance on January 10, 2012, the Company identified billing and inventory post-closing adjustments at its Indiana Harbor operations. This is expected to impact 2011 earnings by approximately $11 million (net of income attributable to noncontrolling interests) on a pre-tax basis. The Company believes these issues will not have a material impact on future results and reaffirms its 2012 guidance.
