07:17 EDTTS, TXTernium named in CSN lawsuit
Ternium S.A. (TX) announced that it was made aware by Tenaris S.A. (TS) of the filing of a lawsuit in Brazil by Companhia Siderurgica Nacional, or CSN, and various entities affiliated with CSN against Ternium Investments S.ar.l., its subsidiary Siderar, and Confab Industrial S.A., a Brazilian subsidiary of Tenaris. The entities named in the CSN lawsuit had acquired a participation in Usinas Siderurgicas de Minas Gerais S.A. - Usiminas in January 2012. As informed by Tenaris, the CSN lawsuit alleges that, under applicable Brazilian laws and rules, the acquirers were required to launch a tag-along tender offer to all minority holders of Usiminas ordinary shares for a price per share equal to 80% of the price per share paid in such acquisition, or 28.8 Brazilian reais, and seeks an order to compel the acquirers to launch an offer at that price plus interest. Ternium believes that CSN's allegations are groundless and without merit, as confirmed by several opinions of Brazilian counsel and previous decisions by Brazil's securities regulator Comissao de Valores Mobiliarios, including a February 2012 decision determining that the above mentioned acquisition did not trigger any tender offer requirement. Accordingly, Ternium will defend itself vigorously.
