    Mechel - besserer Blue chip als Severstal?

    MOSCOW, Nov 28 (Reuters) - Russian steel and mining company Mechel
    said on Tuesday its net profit grew by 18 percent year-on-year in January-September, citing greater
    efficiency and ongoing market recovery.
    Mechel's net profit rose to $372.1 million in the first nine months from $314.7 million in
    January-September 2005. Revenues expanded by 7.9 percent over the same period to
    $3.14 billion from $2.91 billion. Earnings before interest, taxation, depreciation and amortisation
    (EBITDA) grew by 17.5 percent to $668.5 million.
    Mechel's stock traded at $24.85 per share, rising by 3.33 percent at 1644 GMT.
    "We are now confident that our performance over the full year will show substantial improvement
    over last year's levels as consolidated net profit for the nine months is already close to the result of
    the whole of last year," Mechel Chief Operating Officer Alexey Ivanushkin said in a statement.
    Mechel said its EBITDA margin -- a key indicator of operational efficiency -- rose to 21.3 percent from
    19.6 percent in the first nine months of 2005.
    Mechel Chief Executive Vladimir Iorich told a teleconference with investors that the company would
    launch a new production facility in December which would allow it to boost output of value-added
    reinforcement bars by 200,000 tonnes next year.
    Ivanushkin said Mechel's iron ore output was on track to reach record production levels of 5 million
    tonnes this year, a goal originally targeted for 2007, while the company also capitalised on
    unusually high nickel prices.

    Mar 22. Citigroup raises Mechel's ADR recommendation to Buy and target price by 18%.

    Citigroup Smith Barney has upgraded its target price for Mechel's American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) from $34 to $40, Citigroup said in a note. The ADR recommendation was lifted from Hold to Buy. Citigroup's analysts revised upward their forecast for Mechel's financial performance due to higher nickel and coal prices, which they expected, which pushed up the target price for the metal producer's ADRs. Since the upside potential for Mechel's ADRs reached 29% after the upgrade of the target price, the ADR recommendation was lifted to Buy. In accordance with the new estimates made by Citigroup's experts, Mechel's 2007 revenue will total $4,477 mln (a 3.5% increase on the previous estimate), EBITDA will reach $1,047 mln (a 13.5% advance) and net profit will surge 18.7% to $596 mln. 2008 sales are now projected at $4,434 mln (+4.5%), EBITDA at $905.70 mln (an 8% rise) and net profit at $487.1 mln (12% higher). 2009 revenue is estimated at $4,542 bln (+5%), EBITDA at $909.4 mln (a 6.2% rise) and net profit at $488.8 mln (a 9.3% advance).

    Mechel Announces Completion of Privatization Contract for Mechel Campia Turzii

    CAMPIA TURZII, Romania, April 16 /PRNewswire/ --

    Mechel (Nachrichten) OAO (NYSE: MTL) announces the early completion of its obligations under the privatization contract for its Romanian steel plant, Mechel Campia Turzii.

    The Authority of State Assets Recovery of Romania has formally confirmed the fulfillment of all the investment obligations undertaken by Mechel under the privatization contract in purchasing the Romanian company, Mechel Campia Turzii, which specializes in manufacturing rolled and hardware products.

    The privatization contract for Mechel Campia Turzii was originally signed on March 14, 2003. Transfer of ownership took place on June 20, 2003. Mechel has completely met all its investment obligations regarding the three investment years and fulfilled in advance its obligations regarding the fourth and fifth investment years ending on June 20, 2008. Mechel obtained from the trade unions their necessary consent, which allowed Mechel to meet the terms under the contract 13 months earlier than the date stipulated.

    Since its acquisition, Mechel has invested US$34.0 million in Mechel Campia Turzii, including investments in its technical re-equipment, environmental protection, repayment of the arrears to the budget, and payment of the shares and working capital.

    The long-term development program of the plant is currently being implemented, which includes significant investments in the modernization of its production capabilities. As a part of this implementation, a press filter to process neutralized pickling solutions was started up early this year, and the workshop for manufacturing and reconditioning of dies was upgraded in the autumn of 2006.

    In 2006, the plant's rolled product output was approximately 141.7 thousand tonnes and its hardware products output was approximately 86 thousand tonnes. In the coming years, Mechel plans to upgrade the capabilities of Mechel Campia Turzii's steelmaking production and subsequent high value added steel product manufacturing.

    "The early closing of the Mechel Campia Turzii privatization contract concludes Mechel's fulfillment of its investment obligations to the Romanian Government, trade unions, and employees of the companies," commented Mechel's Chief Operating Officer Alexey Ivanushkin. "Mechel also closed its privatization contract for its other Romanian steel plant, Mechel Targoviste, in December 2006. With these investments, Mechel is successfully executing its plans to transform formerly unprofitable assets into sustainable and profitable companies. Joint cooperation with the government of Romania enables Mechel to make future investments in the Company's Romanian assets. A strategic investment program for further developing the Romanian plants in 2007-2011 is currently being developed. The objective of this program is significant cost reduction, further modernization, and improved performance across the entire production process."

    Mechel is one of the leading Russian mining and metals companies. Mechel unites producers of coal, iron ore, nickel, steel, rolled products, and hardware. Mechel products are marketed domestically and internationally.

    We expect strong 2Q07 US GAAP numbers


    Mechel is to report its 2Q07 US GAAP numbers tomorrow. The company reported a solid 2Q07 operating update which showed continued improvements in output in both its mining and steel business. The increase in coal output was due to the commissioning of a new mine, Olzherasskaya-Novaya, last year and improving operating efficiencies at existing mines and open pits. The iron ore concentrate output was stable, in line with Korshunov Mining Plant's operating capacity. Nickel production increases in 2Q07 and strong nickel prices should reflect positively on the company's financials.

    In 2Q07F Mechel's steel segment should benefit form higher output of commercial value-added metal products and strong domestic premiums for long products. Additionally, the increase in coke production as a result of the acquisition of Moscow Coke and Gas Plant last year and the commissioning of the new coke battery at Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant should further add to a strong performance in 2Q07F.

    Mechel could show solid q-o-q growth in its 2Q07F US GAAP results In $mn, US GAAP 2Q06 1Q07 2Q07F % chg.

    The company is to hold a conference call to discuss the 2Q07 US GAAP numbers on Wednesday, October 3, at 18: 00 Moscow time (15: 00 London, 10: 00 New York). To join the conference call, please dial International: +44 20 7138 0827, US: +1 718 354 1358. Please call approximately 10 minutes prior to the scheduled time of the call.

    While Mechel currently trades close to our 12-month target price of $49.7, we are tempted not to revise our rating before the publication of 2Q07 US GAAP results as we might see better-than-expected numbers as was the case with Severstal, MMK and NLMK who all published stronger-than-forecasted 1H07 financials.

    Therefore, we reiterate our Buy rating for Mechel with 12-month target price of $49.7.

    Mechel hat ein niedriges P/E von ca. 8.7 und ein PEG von 1.7
    Das sind werte die eine kaufempfehlung unterstützen. Allerdings ist PEG im Vergleich zu P/E hoch bewerteten Posco, Mittal etc. eher im oberen bereich und Mechel würde deshalb als gut bezahlte hold gelten.
    P/E und PEG liegen für stahlwerte im Mittel bei 11 und 1.2 resp. Beides sind vergangenheitswerte und deshalb nicht unbedingt relevant wenn die weitere
    Entwicklung der absatzmärkte unsicher ist.
    Ich werde z. Zt. gar keinen stahlwert kaufen ausser vielleicht in China. Der insgesamt 80% profit bei China Precision Steel in ca. 1 monat dürfte kurzfristige take over spekulation gewesen sein. Das kann sich mit anderen kleinen China steel werten durchaus wiederholen.

    Moskau - Der russische Stahlkonzern Evraz hat seinen Nettogewinn im Halbjahr um nahezu 100 Prozent gesteigert. Hinter dem Zugewinn stünden hohe Stahlpreise, Zukäufe und eine strikte Kostenkontrolle, teilte das Unternehmen am Freitag mit. Evraz ist der größte russische Stahlproduzent gemessen am Volumen auf dem Heimatmarkt.

    Der Nettogewinn stieg den Angaben zufolge um 98,2 Prozent auf 1,13 Mrd. Dollar (801 Mio. Euro) bei einem Umsatzplus von 57,5 Prozent auf 6,02 Mrd. Dollar. Im Gesamtjahr erwartet Evraz eine Steigerung des konsolidierten Umsatzes um 45 bis 55 Prozent.

    Die Firma, die zu 41 Prozent dem russischen Milliardär Roman Abramowitsch gehört, hat in der letzten Zeit kräftig zugekauft: Sie übernahm den US-Konkurrenten Oregon Steel Mills, das US-Unternehmen Stratcor sowie die südafrikanische Highveld Steel and Vanadium. Die Zukäufe hätten mehr als 50 Prozent zur Umsatzsteigerung im Jahresvergleich beigetragen, erklärte Evraz. (APA/Reuters)

    $2.3B ACQUISITION
    Mechel wins more output, fast becoming a world-class coal producer

    Mechel's coal output is now approaching 30 Mt/y following its recent takeover of Yakutugol and purchase of Russia's largest known, undeveloped high quality coking coal deposit.
    Author: John Chadwick
    Posted: Tuesday , 09 Oct 2007

    LONDON -

    As the result of an auction held on October 5, 2007, Mechel acquired 75% less one share of Yakutugol OJSHC's charter capital and 68.86% of Elgaugol OAO's charter capital, for a total of RUR58.2 billion (approximately US$2.3 billion). Thus, Mechel's stake in Yakutugol increases to 100%, given that the company already held 25% plus one share in its ownership.

    Yakutugol mines mainly coking coal with some steam coal output. Its total coal output is about 10 Mt/y (more than half Mechel's current output). The coal reserves of Yakutugol's existing assets are estimated at approximately 200 Mt, according to Russian reserve valuation standards. Yakutugol is the largest Russian exporter of coking coal and sells most of its output to countries in the Pacific region, including Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan.

    Elgaugol holds the license for development of the Elga coal deposit with the total reserves of fat coking coals amounting to approximately 2,200 Mt. According to the experts' estimates, coal reserves in this region are 30,000 to 40,000 Mt. In addition, a real-estate complex owned by JSC Russian Railways was put up at the auction and acquired by Mechel. The complex includes the railway spur track from Zeisk station of the Far Eastern Railway to the Elga coal deposit and an access road from Zeisk station of the Far Eastern Railway to the Elga deposit.

    Igor Zyuzin, Mechel's Chief Executive Officer, commented: "We are pleased with our victory at the auction. By acquiring Yakutugol, we have gained control over the last operating unprivatized coal asset, concluding a three-year privatization process. Although there had been some uncertainty among some investors that Mechel would obtain control over Yakutugol, we are glad that we proved our ability to bring all our undertakings to conclusion. Yakutugol will significantly strengthen Mechel's position on the Russian and international coking coal markets. Secondly, we obtained access to the largest deposit of high quality coking coals, which lays a reliable foundation for long term development of Mechel's coal mining. With ownership of Southern Kuzbass, Yakutugol, and Elgaugol, we hope to establish a world-class modern coal mining company. We plan to ship most of the mined coal to Russian consumers including Mechel's subsidiaries."

    In 2006, Mechel produced approximately 17 Mt of coal comprising 9.7 Mt of coking coal and 7.3 Mt of steam coal.

    Mechel Announces Its Victory In RZhD OAO’s Tender For Sale of the Property of Port Temryuk Production Complex

    Moscow, Russia – January 9, 2008 – Mechel OAO (NYSE: MTL), one of the leading Russian mining and metals companies, announces that its Mecheltrans ООО transportation subsidiary has won the open tender held by Russian Railways OJSC (RZhD OAO) for the sale of the Port Temryuk production complex.

    As previously announced in September 2007, Mechel OAO acquired 100% of the shares of Temryuk-Sotra seaport located on the Taman shore of the Sea of Azov. This is one of the most promising ports for small tonnage river-sea type vessels in Southern Russia due to its geographical location.

    The tender of RZhD OAO was held on December 28, 2007 and involved the sale of the real estate assets of the Port Temryuk production complex, two land plots of about 150,000 sq. m total area.

    Mechel Management OOO Chief Executive Officer Vladimir Polin commented on the transaction, “The acquisition of this property complex will enable us to strengthen our presence in the export shipping markets and provide us with more opportunities to efficiently manage the port’s operations and regulate logistics of our deliveries. Following complete commissioning of the real estate assets of the Port Temryuk production complex, we plan to achieve its transshipment capacity of approximately 1.5 million tonnes of cargo in 2008 and approximately 1.8 million tonnes beginning from 2009. The acquired property complex is located in immediate proximity to Temryuk-Sotra, which is already owned by Mechel. The operations of the both assets are supported by the same railway branch owned by Temryuk-Sotra and this affords us an opportunity to subsequently join these two infrastructure facilities into a high capacity port transshipment complex”.

    Mechel Considers German IPO for Its Mining Division
    posted on: February 11, 2008

    Mechel (MTL) has been showing some nice relative strength of late - it has nice exposure to multiple areas of interest for me - steel, iron ore, coal. Friday's 7% move seems to be driven by news of a potential IPO for its mining division. We did discuss this in mid December [Mechel Reports Earnings, Considers Mining IPO] but now we appear to have more details.
    Russian steel maker Mechel (MTL) is considering listing its mining division in Frankfurt in an initial public offering that could raise around $4 billion, Russian business daily Kommersant reported on Friday.
    Mechel MTLR.RTS aimed to sell a 20 percent stake in a newly created mining division which it values at $20 billion -- considerably more than the entire company's current value.
    New York-listed Mechel, Russia's sixth-largest steel maker, has a current market capitalisation of $8.3 billion, but has acquired extensive coal assets in the country's far east. It has since spent 58.2 billion roubles ($2.36 billion) to win access to large coal deposits in the far eastern Russian region of Yakutia. These include the Elga deposit, potentially Russia's largest coal field.
    Mechel Mining would include the company's stakes in coal firms Yuzhny Kuzbass, Yakutugol and Elgaugol and may also include the Korshunov iron ore mining and concentrating plant, Kommersant said.
    Mechel is still viewed as a steel maker, which is fine - since China and Russia have a relatively cozy relationship and I've viewed Mechel as a nice back door play on the needs of China infrastructure growth. It also has a lot of iron ore exposure - another hot spot in a continued "World of Shortages" scenario. But of course all these acquisitions in the coal market, make me the most happy. I continue to really like this undiscovered gem.

    Technically, this is one of those select few stocks trading over its 50 day moving average, and in fact is only about 5% below its all time high. It has been beaten to a pulp during the January sell off (down to low $70s), but I surmise when the day comes the market regains its footing, this is the type of stock to shoot off like a cannon.

    Feb 26. Mechel mulls an IPO for its mining assets, valuing them at no less than USD 20 bn.

    Mechel Group confirmed its intention to take its mining assets public and values them at no less than USD 20 bn, Mechel Group's beneficial owner and chief executive Igor Zyuzin said. As the group's senior vice president of finance and management Mukhamed Tsikanov told reporters, the plan is to float around 20% of these assets. "We expect to make public specific businesses, including those involved in mining operations. We do not rule out seeing other companies going public" – Zyuzin said. He declined to specify the scheduled timeframe for spinning off the mining assets, the deadline or an IPO venue.

    Mechel Reports Its Operational Results for the First Quarter of 2008


    MOSCOW, April 22 /PRNewswire/ --

    Mechel (News) OAO (NYSE: MTL), one of the leading Russian mining and metals companies, announced today its operational results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2008.

    First quarter of 2008 First quarter of 2008, vs. first thousand tonnes quarter of Product 2007, % Coal 7,279 +60 Coking coal 4,313 +94 Steam coal 2,966 +27 Coal concentrate(1) 4,122 +37 Coking 3,330 +43 Steam 792 +19 Iron ore concentrate 1,163 +6 Nickel 4.4 +7 Ferrosilicon 23 n/a Hardware 183 +16 Forgings 19 -12 Stampings 24 -7 Rolled products 1,366 +7 Flat products 115 +3 Long products 817 +8 Semi-finished products 434 +7 Steel 1,563 +5 Pig iron 970 +4 Coke 917 -4 Electric power generation (ths. kWh) 1,276,133 +157 (1) The coal concentrate has been produced from part of the raw coal output.

    Mechel Management OOO Chief Executive Officer Vladimir Polin commented on the operational results for the first quarter of 2008, "We are very pleased with our operational results for the first quarter of 2008 as we achieved strong production growth across all of our business segments: mining, steel and power. Strong coal growth was driven primarily by the acquisition of Yakutugol HC OAO in October 2007, and the modernization of Southern Kuzbass OAO's mining equipment. We continued to increase our output of nickel as the main component in stainless steel rolled product manufacturing."

    Mr. Polin continued, "Results in our steel segment, were positively driven by increased volumes of steel produced with the continuous casting method, and over time, we will convert 90% of our total steel production to use continuous casting. Furthermore, we increased our output of its finished long and flat rolled products and hardware. Our power segment substantially increased its electric power generation that was primarily driven by the acquisition of the Southern Kuzbass Power Plant in March 2007. Energy growth was also strengthened by the recent acquisition of 49% of the Bulgarian-based Rousse Thermal Power Plant in December 2007, which is operated by our professional management, and the subsequent successful integration of the Power Plant's power facilities into the company's business."

    Why I'm Buying More Mechel

    While still in a primary bear market, I just have to consider these commodity charts to be in their own bull market.While I'd prefer to buy around the 50 day moving average, in a bull market, you just have to be happy for a pullback to the 20 day, which is what we got Friday in Mechel (MTL). As opposed to buying some other names that are still nowhere near support at least we have a stock price near some support level here, so I am adding to one of my favorite names. The stock is down about 12% from peak way back... Tuesday. I missed the exact top but cut back near $159 [Apr 22: Off with Some Mechel], so I'm getting back my position at 9% discount and away we go.

    I'm adding in the $144-$145 range and moving Mechel up from 2.4% to 3.1% of the fund.

    I began this company in early November 07 [Nov 5: Two New Foreign Positions Added Today], and frankly it's grown into one of my favorite ideas - much like the fertilizers and Apple (AAPL) I don't really keep up with the daily news on these, knowing it's going much higher over time - with the momentum trader bumps along the way. Unfortunately, Cramer discovered it as well but it still seems to be a relatively good secret (Yahoo message board volume is about 2% of fertilizer stocks or solar stocks for example) Talk about being in all the right places (steel, coal, iron) at all the right times with a totalitarian ...err, I mean friendly democratic... government at your back. Now if they only bought a Russian potash mine...

    Kusoke, ich halte weiterhin an Mechel fest, ist für mich auch in den nächsten Jahren eine vernünftige Spekulation mit Risikobegrenzung durch Stopplost.

    MECHEL TRIES THE SPINOFF GAMBIT
    Mechel spins off mining and ferroalloy units to deter attack

    Russian specialty steelmaker spins off coal-mining and ferroalloy units to add value, deter asset attack.
    Author: John Helmer
    Posted: Tuesday , 17 Jun 2008

    MOSCOW -

    A series of new executive appointments, announced this week by Mechel, suggests that the group's controlling shareholder, Igor Zyuzin, is preparing for the possible, much rumoured sale of the Mechel steel division to the state-owned RusSpetsStal ("Russian Special Steel", RSS) group.

    What isn't clear yet is whether Zyuzin's new structure is meant to repel, or absorb, an attack. This structure, comprising separate steel, mining, ferroalloy, and other divisions, is interpreted by some industry sources as a defense against a takeover. Others view it as making Mechel's steel assets cheaper for a state steelmaking company to acquire, and easier for Zyuzin to let go.

    There is no explanation from the company as to why the group's coal and iron-ore mines are located in the mining spinoff, while chromium and nickel mines are in the ferroalloy unit; nor why transportation and electricity supply have been prized apart from steelmaking, the original function of Mechel, Russia's fifth ranked steelmaker.

    Company statements claim the spinoff scheme will "increase management efficiency," without diluting group control by Zyuzin. Even after separate listings of the spinoffs, "control of the sub-holdings will always remain with Mechel," investment relations director Alexander Tolkach has announced.

    In all, the Mechel Group -- in 2003, the first of the Russian steelmakers to list abroad (and the only one on the New York Stock Exchange) -- generated $6.7 billion in revenues last year. Steel sales outside the group amounted to $4.3 billion, or 64% of the aggregate. Mining revenues amounted to $2.4 billion, or 36% of total. Sales of coal and iron-ore inside the Mechel group were worth $712 million for the year; that is 39% of mine revenues. The power generating division reported $599 million worth of revenues, just 16% of which went to other parts of the group. But unlike the other profit-making divisions, power recorded a $13 million loss for the year.

    In terms of profitability, calculated as the Ebitda margin, mining is the most lucrative of the group's businesses with a 39% margin, buoyed by coal and iron-ore prices. Steelmaking generated a margin of 25%; power, just 4.5%.

    One clue to Zyuzin's priorities is the surprise announcement that his chief subordinate is being moved out of the second spot in the group to the top spot in one of the spinoffs. Alexander Ivanushkin -- a Mechel veteran since Glencore controlled the Russian steelmaker in the mid-1990s, and the Mechel group's chief operating officer since 2004 -- is being moved to become chief executive of the newly formed Mechel Ferroalloys group, and its management company. This unit consolidates the recently acquired Tikhvin Ferroalloys Plant, the Bratsk Ferroalloys Plant, and Yuzkuralnikel, the mine source for Mechel's stainless steel production line.

    In March, Zyuzin paid $1.5 billion for Tikhvin and other chrome assets of the Oriel Resources group. An independent IPO for the new ferroalloy group is being considered, Mechel says. Notwithstanding, the span of control and value of assets under Ivanushkin are significantly smaller in his new job than in his previous one.

    Mechel Mining has also been established as a separate sub-holding of the group. It will consolidate Mechel's coal and iron-ore mining assets, plus a limestone quarry. A November target date has been suggested by Mechel officials for a London IPO of this group of assets. In 2007 Mechel mined 21 million tonnes of coal, half coking coal, half steam coal. With its new acquisitions in Yakutia, this unit is planning to build production up to about 60 million tonnes per annum, making one of the largest coal sources in Russia. In late 2007, market valuation of the mining division was estimated at between $7 billion to $9 billion.

    The new chief executive of Mechel Mining is Igor Khafizov. Most recently, he ran the Yakutugol coalmine in fareastern Sakha. Before that, Khafizov ran Mechel's YuzhnyKuzbassUgol coalmines, and also the Korshunov iron-ore complex. In Khafizov's place at Yakutugol, the new chief executive is to be Vladimir Dronov, a coalmining specialist.

    The Zyuzin plan also calls for the spinoff of an energy division, incorporating power plants serving the Kuzbass mines. The final spinoff is to be a ports group, which includes Posyet, on the Sea of Japan, two river ports in western Russia, and a coal export terminal in the fareast.

    Reports of interest on the part of RSS, headed by Sergei Nosov, in buying the Mechel steelmaking assets have been circulating for more than two years. Mechel is Russia's dominant stainless steelmaker, with plans to raise the volume of its stainless output to a 50% share of the country's stainless cold rolled market by 2011.The company produced 36,000 tonnes of hot rolled stainless coil in 2006; about 15,000 tonnes were converted to cold rolled stainless.

    The prospect of a state takeover appears to have been one of the factors that encouraged Zyuzin's former co-partner, Vladimir Yorikh, to sell out his stake in 2006-2007. Yorikh earned $1.5 billion from the sale of his 42% shareholding. Had he not been impelled to exit, and waited for the current market capitalization of the group at $17 billion, Yorikh's stake would now be worth five times as much.

    Although Mineweb has been able to corroborate the negotiations between Mechel and RSS, Nosov has so far been reluctant to acknowledge his plans -- or the price his state-owned entity may be able to afford to pay. By creating sub-holdings, and divesting the non-steel assets from Mechel, Zyuzin may be making Mechel Steel more accessible to Nosov, but at the same time stripping out much of its market value as a mining company. An assistant to Nosov said he was unavailable to comment.

    Since privatization began in 1991, Russia's steelmakers have protected themselves from hostage-taking and hostile takeover by vertically integrating control of coal, scrap, and iron-ore supplies, as well as export outlets at the sea. The plan of Mechel's breakup is thus unprecedented.

    Mechel spokesman Pavel Talan refused to clarify Ivanushkin's job transfer. He declined to comment on whether this represents a demotion; a restructuring of value inside the Mechel asset group; or a defence of the steel group by removing the raw materials and alloys, on which the specialty steel production line depends.

    Steel analyst Lev Chesalov told Mineweb: "It is unique for such a structure to be created. It is clear in the case of the mining unit, for it may be traded with higher share and asset value if it is listed and its shares sold as a separate unit. As to ferro-alloys, I simply don't know. Maybe this is a defensive scheme. Another question is how will the split of the company impact on the market capitalization."

    The Russian stock market cut Mechel's share price by 7% in Monday trading, after the job appointment notice appeared. The price has fallen 11% in value since it hit its high for the year of $45.80 on May 7.

    Schutzgeldzahlung vergessen? Da wird Zar Putin aber sauer

    Mechel OAO shares plunge following Putin criticism
    Shares in Russian mining company Mechel plunge after Putin calls for investigation
    July 24, 2008: 05:26 PM EST


    NEW YORK (Associated Press) - Shares in Mechel OAO, a Russian and steel coal company, plunged Thursday after Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin was quoted as criticizing the company for its pricing methods.

    Mechel's U.S.-listed shares fell $13.77, or 37.6 percent, to close at $22.84 in heavy trading.

    At a meeting with metal producers in Nizhny Novgorod, Putin accused Mechel of selling raw materials for twice the price at home as it does abroad, the Interfax news agency reported.

    Interfax quoted Putin as saying he wanted Russia's antitrust regulators to pay "special attention to this problem."

    Putin also noted that Mechel's biggest shareholder and chief executive, Igor Zyuzin, had been invited to the session, but had fallen ill. He urged him to get better soon. "Otherwise, we will have to send him a doctor to get rid of all these problems," Putin said, according to Interfax.

    Na gut noch 2 Jahre dann ist die Welt diese lächerliche Zar Putin Oligarch Mafia los. Die sind so blöd es ist unglaublich. Wenn die Russkis so dumm sind
    dass sie den doppelten preis bezahlen ... tja. Die Preisfindung...für Russkis und ru bulls ein ewiges rätsel. Wirtschaft... oh je.

    Da meldet sich auch der Kremlin-Oligarch service nur: es stimmt nicht.
    Russen Stahl ist auf dem Weltmarkt nicht konkurrenzfähig deshalb muss zu niedrigerem Preis als im Inland verkauft werden so einfach ist das. Und ganz normal.

    Mechel loses one third of its market cap



    RBC, 25.07.2008, Moscow 09:34:29.Mechel lost more than one third of its market capitalization as of the close of business on the New York Stock Exchange on July 24, 2008. After the price for the Russian steelmaker's ADRs plummeted 37.61 percent, Mechel's capitalization based on its New York quotes slumped to $9.51bn, a drastic decrease from $15bn just a day before, on July 23.

    Mechel's stock price slumped after 6 p.m., when Prime Minister Vladimir Putin clamped down on the steel company and urged the Federal Anti-Monopoly Service and the General Prosecutor's Office to look into Mechel's export prices. Within an hour of the statement, Mechel's quotes plunged 20 percent, and were down over 35 percent as of 8 p.m. Russia's Industry and Trade Minister Viktor Khristenko failed to play down investor fears explaining that Putin's censure was targeted at coal supplies, rather than the company's steel operations, which account for more than a half of its business.

    Es wird vermutet dass der grössenwahnsinnge NeoZar die Mechel Sache losgetreten hat um sich erstmal austoben zu können. Eine niedrige mentale Kapazität ist mit Kleinigkeiten voll ausgelastet. Im Hintergrund wird, so die Vermutung, die TNK BP Sache in Ordnung gebracht. Wenn nicht bekommt der kleine Kläffer ein Problem mit seinen Bossen Deripaska etc.
    Zu beachten ist Sberbank. Da haben Russki Spekulanten unbesichterte Kredite
    am LME futures markt und am grauen oil futures markt verzockt.
    Das kann eng werden. Was man nicht versteht sollte man besser lassen.

    Jedenfalls Mechel kommt wieder.

    Russian stocks ease more than 1% in afternoon trade



    RBC, 29.07.2008, Moscow 17:31:02.Most Russian stocks fell more than 1 percent in the afternoon. As of 4 p.m., the RTS index was down 1.54 percent to 1,899.09 points and the MICEX index was down 1.02 percent at 1,441.28 points. Among the biggest losers on MICEX were Sberbank (down 4.08 percent), LUKoil (down 2.88 percent), and Surgutneftegas (down 0.75 percent), while its best performers included Gazprom (up 0.77 percent), Norilsk Nickel (up 4.78 percent), and Rosneft (up 1.7 percent). On the RTS, LUKoil plunged 5.36 percent, Severstal dropped 4.95 percent, and Sberbank fell 4.68 percent, whereas Mechel rocketed 26.47 percent, Norilsk Nickel climbed 2.4 percent, and Rosneft rose 2.2 percent.

    Investor concern remains high on the Russian market, and sell-offs are still occurring, experts told RBC TV today. There are certain positive expectations for the near term, but they may prove to be short-lived, analysts warn. The shares of only three companies (Gazprom, Rosneft, and Norilsk Nickel) are rising at the moment, while the general trend is still downward, according to experts. Analysts believe that although the Russian market is fundamentally underestimated, this is not very important now. Meanwhile, stocks are likely to start recovering in the second half of August, according to analysts.

    Mechel im Visier der Justiz

    Der Untersuchungsausschuss bei der Generalstaatsanwaltschaft Russlands prüft die Aktivitäten des russischen Stahlproduzenten Mechel, teilte der Untersuchungsausschuss in Moskau mit. Es solle festgestellt werden, ob strafbare Taten vorlägen, hieß es.

    Am vergangenen Donnerstag hatte der russische Ministerpräsident Wladimir Putin bei einem Treffen mit Industriellen in Nischni Nowgorod Mechel wegen falscher Preispolitik scharf kritisiert. Darauf brachen Mechel-ADR in New York um ein Drittel ein, was am Freitag eine massive Verkaufswelle auch an der russischen RTS-Börse auslöste.

    Am Montag warf Putin dem Konzern auch noch Steuerhinterziehung vor. Seit Jahresbeginn habe Mechel Kokskohle zu einem Preis von 1100 Rubel je Tonne (47 US-Dollar) an eigene Off-Shore-Strukturen verkauft, die die Kohle dann für 323 Dollar je Tonne weiter verkauft hätten. "Indes liegt der russische Binnenmarktpreis bei 4100 Rubel je Tonne... Das bedeutet eine Senkung der Steuerbasis im Inland, um die Zahlung von Steuern zu umgehen", sagte Putin.

    Mechel-Aktien in USA und Russland eingebrochen

    Eine halbe Stunde nach der Eröffnung des Handels an der New Yorker Wertpapierbörse (NYSE) verloren Mechel 36,18 Prozent, teilte NYSE mit. Die russische RTS-Börse reagierte darauf mit massiven Verkäufen von Aktien des Konzerns.

    Zum Börsenschluss in Moskau notierten Mechel mit minus 33,98 Prozent bei 17 US-Dollar, teilte RTS mit. Gleich zu Beginn des RTS-Handels am Montag setzte sich bei Mechel-Aktien ein Aufwärtstrend durch. In wenigen Stunden legten Mechel um mehr als 10,0 Prozent zu, gestützt durch eine positive Erklärung von Präsidentenberater Arkadi Dworkowitsch, nach der Mechel zur Lösung der Probleme aktiv mit dem Kartellamt kooperiere.

    Am Nachmittag warf Putin Mechel auch noch Steuerhinterziehung vor, worauf das Papier auf das Niveau vom Freitag abrutschte. Kurz vor Börsenschluss erreichte der Sinkflug seinen Höhepunkt: Innerhalb von etwa 30 Minuten verloren die Mechel-Aktien ein Drittel ihres ursprünglichen Wertes.

    Kreml: Russlands Konzerne müssen aus Mechel-Krise lernen

    Alle russischen Unternehmen sollen ihre Lehren aus der Krise des Stahlkonzerns Mechel ziehen, mahnte Arkadi Dworkowitsch, Assistent des russischen Präsidenten, am Montag. „Nicht nur Mechel, sondern auch alle großen, mittelgroßen und weitere Unternehmen vom russischen Markt ziehen hoffentlich ihre Lehren aus dem Geschehenen, und wir handeln dann alle möglichst zivilisiert auf dem Markt“, so Dworkowitsch am Montag vor Journalisten.

    Der Mechel-Konzern gebe aber auch positive Signale, indem er mit dem russischen Kartellamt kooperiere und alle erforderlichen Informationen zur Verfügung stelle. „Zum festgelegten Termin wird das Kartellamt seine Entscheidung treffen. Falls der Konzern gegen die auf dem Markt geltenden Prinzipien verstoßen hat, darf das Kartellamt entsprechende Sanktionen verhängen und wird das auch tun“, hieß es. Wie Kartellamt-Sprecherin Maria Tschernowa am Montag sagte, entscheidet die Behörde am 26. August, ob der Stahlkonzern gegen das Kartellgesetz verstoßen hat.

    Mechel hatte vergangene Woche mitgeteilt, bei der Lösung der Probleme mit den Behörden zusammenarbeiten zu wollen. Dem Konzern droht ein Strafgeld von mindestens 120 Mio. Euro, wie die Zeitung "Wedomosti" am Montag unter Berufung auf Finanzexperten berichtete. Nach einem abrupten Kursverfall nach Putins Kritik vom Donnerstag um fast 30 Prozent brach die Mechel-Aktie zum Börsenschluss in Moskau am Montag um noch knapp 34 Prozent ein. Mechel ist Russlands sechstgrößter Stahlproduzent.
