  • I said this 2 years ago, when Credit Suisse and UBS both turned down MT's refinancing requests, claiming MT was "no longer trustworthy, and were seen as an unreliable risk."

     

    In a detailed comparrison here on SA, I also pointed out their debt was nearly as high as their Mkt Cap, citing specifically that POSCO was knocking MT in the dirt worldwide, and would indeed surpass MT within the year.

     

    Happy New Year Mr. Mittal!
