EVRAZ North America (“ENA” or the “Company”) is a leading, vertically-integrated producer of engineered steel products for the North American rail, energy, industrial and construction markets. ENA has steelmaking capacity of 2.3 million tons and finished steel (including tubular products) capacity of 3.5 million tons, and operates 2 EAF-based steel facilities, 4 rolling mills and 8 tubular mills, and 17 scrap recycling facilities. ENA is constructing a state of the art, 320’ greenfield rail facility which will replace existing rail mill; project expected to be completed by 2023. Having strong financial results (2021 sales of $2.4 billion and Adjusted EBITDA of $320 million), ENA can provide stable income and cash flow to its new investor.
In 2022, EVRAZ plc did not receive and does not plan to receive any income from the activities of ENA.
