Cliffs Natural reduces FY14 CapEx by additional $100M Cliffs Natural announced that it is further reducing its expected FY14 capital spending range by approximately 25%, or $100M, to $275M-$325M. This significant reduction is in addition to the company's previously announced capital spending decrease of approximately 55%, or $460M, from Cliffs' FY13 capital expenditures. The $100M decrease will impact all of Cliffs' reporting segments, with Eastern Canadian Iron Ore and North American Coal making up 75% of the reduction. The company indicated that the lower full-year capital spending range of $275M-$325M is a sustainable level to support Cliffs' full-year production volume and cash cost expectations as well as safety and environmental obligations. The capital spending reduction is driven by the recent volatility in seaborne iron ore and metallurgical coal pricing. Cliffs indicated that it expects the pricing environment to remain volatile over the near term, which will directly impact the realized revenue in the majority of the company's business segments.
