Commenting, Aditya Mittal, ArcelorMittal Chief Executive Officer, said:

“Market conditions improved as anticipated in the first quarter, with the end of customer destocking supporting apparent steel consumption growth and a rebound in steel spreads. This, alongside better general economic sentiment, resulted in good growth in first quarter profits as well as higher EBITDA per tonne. The improvements we have seen in market conditions are not yet fully reflected in our results due to pricing lags, and we expect a further increase in profitability in the second quarter.

We remain confident in our ability to generate healthy free cash flow this year and have therefore announced a new share buyback today, while continuing to invest in growth and the energy transition. During the first quarter we completed the acquisition of CSP and, also in Brazil, announced a new renewable energy joint venture, which aims to secure and decarbonize a considerable proportion of ArcelorMittal Brazil’s future electricity needs.

Improving group safety performance remains the highest priority. We continue to intensify efforts to improve our results, including evolving towards a “predict and prevent” culture centered around the recorded number of accidents that have the potential to result in serious injuries. I am cautiously optimistic we will be able to demonstrate the progress expected of us this year.

To conclude, the first quarter has unfolded as we expected. Geopolitical and economic uncertainty remains, but ArcelorMittal continues to demonstrate its ability to perform in all market conditions which bodes well for the remainder of this year.”Sustainable development and safety performanceHealth and safety – Own personnel and contractors lost time injury frequency rate2

Our priority in all that we do is to protect the safety, health and wellbeing of all our employees. We aspire to become a fatality free and severe injury free company.

The lost time injury frequency rate (“LTIFR”) was 0.64x in the first quarter of 2023 (“1Q 2023”) as compared to 0.86x in the fourth quarter of 2022 (“4Q 2022”) and 0.69x in the first quarter of 2022 (“1Q 2022”).

Our ability to monitor and analyse potential severe injuries and fatalities is key as it provides a deeper understanding of how near-miss incidents arise and can be avoided. The Company is moving to a ‘predict-and-prevent’ culture which involves focusing its attention on proactive rather than reactive KPIs, with a particular focus on proactively detecting and identifying the Potential for Serious Injuries or Fatalities (“PSIF”). PSIFs are precursors of severe accidents: unsafe situations or events, that we detect proactively, before they could lead to a fatality or injury. We are analyzing the quality of the investigations and corresponding actions, identifying trends and risk, and sharing any learnings across the Company.Own personnel and contractors – Lost Time Injury Frequency rate

Sustainable development highlights – driving the decarbonization of the steel industry16:

  • On April 18, 2023, ArcelorMittal announced that its Brazilian entity, ArcelorMittal Brasil, will form a joint venture partnership (‘JV’) with Casa dos Ventos, one of Brazil’s largest developers and producers of renewable energy projects, to develop a 554 MW wind power project. ArcelorMittal Brasil will hold a 55% stake in the JV, with Casa dos Ventos holding the remaining 45%. The c. $0.8 billion project aims to secure and decarbonise a considerable proportion of ArcelorMittal Brazil’s future electricity needs, pursuant to a 20-year power purchase agreement to be entered into with the JV for the supply of electricity. It is estimated it will provide 38% of ArcelorMittal’s Brasil’s total electricity needs in 2030. The JV will be equity accounted and ArcelorMittal’s total equity investment will be c. $0.15 billion.
  • On February 17, 2023, the European Commission approved funding of €450 million to build a DRI-EAF facility in Spain and €55 million for the production of near zero- emission steel with green hydrogen in a demonstration plant at ArcelorMittal Hamburg.

Analysis of results for 1Q 2023 versus 4Q 2022 and 1Q 2022Following the end of destocking, total steel shipments in 1Q 2023 were +14.4% higher at 14.5Mt as compared with 12.6Mt for 4Q 2022. Steel shipments in NAFTA increased by +21.6%, in Europe increased by +14.0%, in Brazil increased by +11.3% (in part due to ArcelorMittal Pecém acquisition following its consolidation on March 9, 2023) and ACIS increased by +6.1% (although still impacted by the ongoing war in Ukraine). Excluding the impacts of ArcelorMittal Pecém, steel shipments were +12.7% higher as compared to 4Q 2022.

Total steel shipments in 1Q 2023 were -5.8% lower as compared with 15.3Mt for 1Q 2022 primarily due to lower steel shipments in ACIS (-27.5%, impacted by ongoing effects of the Ukraine war), Europe (-7.0%), Brazil (-3.3%, including the benefit of the consolidation of ArcelorMittal Pecém from March 9, 2023), offset by an improvement in NAFTA (+15.8%). Excluding the impacts of ArcelorMittal Pecém and Ukraine, steel shipments were -4.1% lower as compared to 1Q 2022.

Sales in 1Q 2023 were $18.5 billion as compared to $16.9 billion for 4Q 2022 and $21.8 billion for 1Q 2022. As compared to 4Q 2022, the +9.5% increase in sales was primarily due to higher steel shipment volumes (as discussed above) offset in part by lower average steel selling prices (-2.7%). Sales in 1Q 2023 were -15.3% lower as compared to 1Q 2022 primarily due to lower average steel selling prices (-13.3%) and lower steel shipments (-5.8%).

Depreciation for 1Q 2023 was $630 million as compared to $636 million for 4Q 2022 and $647 million in 1Q 2022. Full year 2023 depreciation is expected at ~$2.6 billion.

Impairment charges for 1Q 2023 and 1Q 2022 were nil. Impairment charges for 4Q 2022 of $1.0 billion related to ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih3.

Exceptional items for 1Q 2023 and 1Q 2022 were nil. Exceptional items for 4Q 2022 of $0.1 billion related to a gain following the settlement of a claim by ArcelorMittal for a breach of a supply contract.

Operating income for 1Q 2023 was $1.2 billion as compared to an operating loss in 4Q 2022 of $0.3 billion (impacted by impairment charges as discussed above) and operating income of $4.4 billion in 1Q 2022. The improvement in operating income compared to 4Q 2022 reflected improving steel shipment volumes and lower costs (including energy) and improved mining performance.

Income from associates, joint ventures and other investments for 1Q 2023 was $318 million as compared to $121 million in 4Q 2022 and $559 million in 1Q 2022. 1Q 2023 results improved as compared to 4Q 2022 with higher contributions from AMNS India, Calvert and European investees. 1Q 2022 included a $117 million Erdemir annual dividend income.

Net interest expense in 1Q 2023 was $64 million as compared to $72 million in 4Q 2022 and higher than $51 million in 1Q 2022, reflecting higher interest income offset in part by the issuance, at the end of 3Q 2022 and in 4Q 2022, of new notes bearing higher interest rates.

Foreign exchange and other net financing loss in 1Q 2023 was $117 million as compared to a gain of $449 million in 4Q 2022 and a loss of $140 million in 1Q 2022. 1Q 2023 included a foreign exchange gain of $31 million as compared to a foreign exchange gain of $497 million in 4Q 2022 (following the -9.4% depreciation of the US dollar vs. the euro during that quarter) and a loss of $46 million in 1Q 2022.

ArcelorMittal recorded an income tax expense of $189 million (including deferred tax benefit of $93 million) in 1Q 2023, as compared to an income tax benefit of $35 million (including deferred tax benefit of $126 million) in 4Q 2022 and an income tax expense of $555 million (including deferred tax benefit of $140 million) in 1Q 2022.

ArcelorMittal recorded a net income in 1Q 2023 of $1,096 million as compared to $261 million7 in 4Q 2022 and $4,125 million for 1Q 2022.

ArcelorMittal's basic earnings per common share for 1Q 2023 was higher at $1.28 as compared to $0.307 in 4Q 2022 and $4.28 in 1Q 2022.

Brazil segment crude steel production increased by +9.7% to 3.1Mt in 1Q 2023 as compared to 4Q 2022, primarily due to ArcelorMittal Pecém following its consolidation from March 9, 2023. On a scope adjusted basis excluding the impact of ArcelorMittal Pecém 1Q 2023 crude production was marginally higher by +1.1% as compared to 4Q 2022 and -7.4% lower as compared to 1Q 2022 due to lower demand from export markets.

Steel shipments of 2.9Mt in 1Q 2023 were +11.3% higher as compared to 2.6Mt in 4Q 2022, in part due to ArcelorMittal Pecém, and -3.3% lower as compared to 1Q 2022. On a scope adjusted basis (i.e. excluding ArcelorMittal Pecém), steel shipments increased by +3.0% as compared to 4Q 2022 and decreased by -10.5% as compared to 1Q 2022, due to lower exports.

Sales in 1Q 2023 increased by +6.0% to $3.1 billion as compared to $2.9 billion in 4Q 2022, primarily due to an +11.3% increase in steel shipments offset in part by -5.6% decrease in average steel selling prices. Sales in 1Q 2023 were -8.8% lower than $3.4 billion at 1Q 2022 primarily on account of -3.3% decline in shipments (primarily exports) and lower average steel selling prices (-5.9%).

Operating income in 1Q 2023 of $323 million was +6.9% higher as compared to $302 million in 4Q 2022 and -52.0% lower than $674 million in 1Q 2022.

EBITDA in 1Q 2023 increased by +9.3% to $395 million as compared to $362 million in 4Q 2022, due to higher steel shipments, a positive price-cost effect and contribution from ArcelorMittal Pecém, partially offset by a non-cash charge of $60 million related to an update of a previously recorded provision. EBITDA in 1Q 2023 was -46.0% lower than $732 million in 1Q 2022 primarily due to negative price-cost effect and lower steel shipments as described above.

Europe segment crude steel production increased by +11.8% to 7.8Mt in 1Q 2023 as compared to 7.0Mt in 4Q 2022. As apparent demand conditions have improved following the aggressive destock in 2H 2022, the Company has gradually restarted previously curtailed capacity during the quarter to meet demand. Crude steel production was -10.5% lower as compared to 8.7Mt in 1Q 2022 mainly due to weaker demand.

In late March 2023, the Company was impacted by incidents that temporarily disabled a blast furnace at Gijon, Spain and a blast furnace at Dunkirk, France. No injuries were reported, and the Company is focused on ensuring the furnaces are restored and restarted in a safe and measured manner, with production not expected to return to normal levels until June 2023. The Company is making every effort to supply customers from its mills across Europe, including the sourcing of materials from the Group's operations in Brazil, South Africa and India.

Steel shipments increased by +14.0% to 7.8Mt in 1Q 2023 as compared to 6.8Mt in 4Q 2022 due to improved activity following the end of destocking. Shipments declined by -7.0% as compared to 8.3Mt in 1Q 2022 primarily due to weaker demand.

Sales in 1Q 2023 increased by +8.2% to $10.9 billion, as compared to $10.1 billion in 4Q 2022, due to a +14.0% increase in steel shipments offset in part by -2.7% lower average selling prices. Sales declined by -16.4% as compared to $13.0 billion in 1Q 2022 primarily due to lower steel shipments (-7.0%) and lower average steel selling prices (-13.4%).

Operating income in 1Q 2023 was $377 million as compared to an operating loss of $10 million in 4Q 2022 and operating income of $2,081 million in 1Q 2022.

EBITDA in 1Q 2023 of $671 million increased as compared to $306 million in 4Q 2022, mainly due to higher steel shipments (+14.0%) and lower energy costs. EBITDA in 1Q 2023 decreased by -72.1% as compared to $2,407 million in 1Q 2022 due to a negative price-cost effect, lower shipments (-7.0%) and a negative translation effect.

ACIS segment crude steel production in 1Q 2023 was +6.4% higher at 1.5Mt as compared to 1.4Mt in 4Q 2022 mainly due to higher production in Ukraine following improved electricity availability. Crude steel production in 1Q 2023 was -39.5% below 2.5Mt in 1Q 2022 primarily due to lower steel production in Ukraine driven by the ongoing war.

Steel shipments in 1Q 2023 increased by +6.1% to 1.5Mt as compared to 1.4Mt in 4Q 2022 primarily due to recovery of shipments in South Africa after the holiday season. Shipments were -27.5% lower as compared to 2.1Mt in 1Q 2022, primarily due to lower production in Ukraine driven by the ongoing war.

Sales in 1Q 2023 increased by +17.5% to $1.4 billion as compared to $1.2 billion in 4Q 2022, primarily due to higher steel shipments and higher average steel selling prices.

Impairment losses for 4Q 2022 of $1.0 billion relate to the ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih’s assets3.

Operating loss in 1Q 2023 of $176 million compared to an operating loss in 4Q 2022 of $1,198 million (impacted by impairment as discussed above) and an operating income of $280 million in 1Q 2022.

EBITDA loss of $104 million in 1Q 2023 was broadly stable as compared to EBITDA loss of $107 million in 4Q 2022, due to higher steel shipments offset by a negative price-cost effect (primarily related to coal purchases). EBITDA loss of $104 million in 1Q 2023 compared to an EBITDA gain of $385 million in 1Q 2022 primarily due to the impact of the war in Ukraine and lower average steel selling prices.

Note: Mining segment comprises iron ore operations of ArcelorMittal Mines Canada and ArcelorMittal Liberia.

Iron ore production decreased in 1Q 2023 by -9.9% to 6.7Mt as compared to 7.5Mt in 4Q 2022 and was -3.3% lower than 6.9Mt in 1Q 2022. This primarily reflected lower iron ore production in ArcelorMittal Mines Canada (AMMC)10 in 1Q 2023 as compared to 4Q 2022.

Iron ore shipments were +6.9% higher at 7.4Mt in 1Q 2023 as compared to 6.9Mt in 4Q 2022 primarily due to recovery of port operations in Canada impacted by severe storms during December 2022. 1Q 2023 iron ore shipments were +11.3% higher as compared to 6.7Mt at 1Q 2022 which was impacted by severe weather conditions at AMMC and a rail incident in Liberia.

Operating income in 1Q 2023 was higher at $374 million as compared to $255 million in 4Q 2022 and lower by -26.8% as compared to $511 million in 1Q 2022.

EBITDA in 1Q 2023 of $430 million was higher as compared to $312 million in 4Q 2022, with the effect of higher iron ore reference prices (+26.8%), higher iron ore shipments and lower freight costs partially offset by lower quality premia. EBITDA in 1Q 2023 was lower as compared to $567 million in 1Q 2022, primarily due to lower iron ore reference prices (-11.7%) and lower quality premia partially offset by lower freight costs and higher iron ore shipments (+11.3%).

Joint venturesArcelorMittal has investments in various joint ventures and associate entities globally. The Company considers the Calvert (50% equity interest) and AMNS India (60% equity interest) joint ventures to be of particular strategic importance, warranting more detailed disclosures to improve the understanding of their operational performance and value to the Company.

*** EBITDA of Calvert presented here on a 100% basis as a stand-alone business and in accordance with the Company's policy, applying the weighted average method of accounting for inventory. Calvert’s hot strip mill (“HSM”) production during 1Q 2023 increased by +20.9% to 1.2Mt, as compared to 1.0Mt in 4Q 2022 which was lower due to both planned maintenance and weaker demand, and by +9.1% as compared to 1.1Mt in 1Q 2022.

Steel shipments in 1Q 2023 were +29.4% above 4Q 2022 due to improved demand.

EBITDA*** during 1Q 2023 of $37 million as compared to EBITDA loss of $1 million in 4Q 2022 was primarily due to higher steel shipments and lower slab inventory cost. The impact of higher weighted average cost of inventories versus replacement cost in 1Q 2023 was approximately $0.1 billion.

Crude steel production in 1Q 2023 increased by +8.6% to 1.8Mt as compared to 1.6Mt in 4Q 2022. Production was higher by +2.0% as compared to 1Q 2022.

Steel shipments in 1Q 2023 increased by +14.9% to 1.8Mt as compared 1.6Mt in 4Q 2022 and +5.7% higher as compared to 1.7Mt in 1Q 2022.

EBITDA during 1Q 2023 of $341 million was higher as compared to $162 million in 4Q 2022, due to higher steel shipments, higher average steel selling prices and lower costs (including energy costs). EBITDA during 1Q 2023 of $341 million was lower as compared to $470 million in 1Q 2022, due to lower prices offset in part by higher steel shipments.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Net cash provided by operating activities in 1Q 2023 was $949 million as compared to $3,634 million in 4Q 2022 and $2,034 million in 1Q 2022. Net cash provided by operating activities in 1Q 2023 includes a seasonal working capital investment of $775 million as compared to a working capital release of $2,412 million in 4Q 2022 and $2,047 million investment in 1Q 2022. Despite the seasonal build in working capital during 1Q 2023, the Company expects working capital will follow the normal seasonal patterns with a release for the full year 2023.

Net cash used in investing activities in 1Q 2023 was $2,869 million, which included capex of $938 million (as compared with $1,500 million in 4Q 2022), in line with the guidance for the full year 2023 of $4.5-5.0 billion12. Net cash used in other investing activities in 1Q 2023 of $1,931 million included the following main items: $2.2 billion related to the acquisition of ArcelorMittal Pecém, other acquisitions including Riwald Recycling, Italpannelli Deutschland and investment in Boston Metal (part of XCarb™ innovation fund)9 and payment of $0.2 billion to Votorantim13 in Brazil, offset in part by $0.6 billion cash received from the partial sale of Erdemir shares14 (to fund the partial repurchase of mandatorily convertible bonds (“MCBs”) as discussed below).

Net cash used in financing activities in 1Q 2023 was $1,349 million which includes euro-denominated bond repayment of $395 million, $53 million dividends mainly paid to the minority shareholders of AMMC, $477 million related to ArcelorMittal share buybacks (19.1 million shares for a total value of $555 million of which $78 million settled early April 2023) and $340 million related to the partial repurchase of the privately placed MCBs17 using proceeds from the partial sale of Erdemir shares14 (as discussed above).

As of March 31, 2023, the Company had liquidity of $11.8 billion as compared to $14.9 billion as of December 31, 2022, consisting of cash and cash equivalents of $6.3 billion (as of December 31, 2022, cash and cash equivalents was $9.4 billion) and $5.5 billion of available credit lines11. As of March 31, 2023, the average debt maturity was 5.8 years.

Capital return

The Company will pay a $0.44/sh base dividend to shareholders in 2 equal instalments of $0.22/share in June 2023 and December 2023.

Following the approval granted by shareholders at the 2023 AGM, the Company announces its intention to repurchase up to 85 million shares through May 2025. The level of repurchases will reflect (and is subject to) the level of post-dividend FCF generated over the period. The Company’s capital return policy defines that a minimum 50% of post-dividend annual FCF is returned to shareholders through buybacks.

Outlook

As anticipated, apparent demand conditions have showed signs of improvement as the destocking phase ended during 1Q 2023. Despite continued headwinds to real demand, the absence of any further destock is expected to support higher apparent demand in 2023 as compared to 2022. The Company’s world ex-China apparent steel consumption ("ASC") growth forecast in 2023 as compared to 2022 (provided in February 2023) is for growth of +2.0% to +3.0%. The Company maintains its previous guidance of steel shipments in 2023 to grow by ~5% vs. 202215.

  1. The financial information in this press release has been prepared consistently with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (“IASB”) and as adopted by the European Union. The interim financial information included in this announcement has also been prepared in accordance with IFRS applicable to interim periods, however this announcement does not contain sufficient information to constitute an interim financial report as defined in International Accounting Standard 34, “Interim Financial Reporting”. The numbers in this press release have not been audited. The financial information and certain other information presented in a number of tables in this press release have been rounded to the nearest whole number or the nearest decimal. Therefore, the sum of the numbers in a column may not conform exactly to the total figure given for that column. In addition, certain percentages presented in the tables in this press release reflect calculations based upon the underlying information prior to rounding and, accordingly, may not conform exactly to the percentages that would be derived if the relevant calculations were based upon the rounded numbers. Segment information presented in this press release is prior to inter-segment eliminations and certain adjustments made to operating results of the segments to reflect corporate costs, income from non-steel operations (e.g. logistics and shipping services) and the elimination of stock margins between the segments. This press release also includes certain non-GAAP financial/alternative performance measures. ArcelorMittal presents EBITDA and EBITDA/tonne, free cash flow (FCF) and ratio of net debt/LTM EBITDA which are non-GAAP financial/alternative performance measures, as additional measures to enhance the understanding of its operating performance. ArcelorMittal also presents Equity book value per share and ROE as shown in footnotes to this press release. ArcelorMittal believes such indicators are relevant to provide management and investors with additional information. ArcelorMittal also presents net debt and change in working capital as additional measures to enhance the understanding of its financial position, changes to its capital structure and its credit assessment. ArcelorMittal also presents adjusted net income(loss) and adjusted basic earnings per share as it believes these are useful measures for the underlying business performance excluding impairment items and exceptional items. The Company’s guidance as to free cash flow and its working capital release (or the change in working capital included in net cash provided by operating activities) for 2023 is based on the same accounting policies as those applied in the Company’s financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS. Non-GAAP financial/alternative performance measures should be read in conjunction with, and not as an alternative to, ArcelorMittal's financial information prepared in accordance with IFRS.
  2. LTIF figures presented for 1Q 2023 of 0.64x and 4Q 2022 of 0.86x. Potential severe injury frequency rate (“PSIF”) is a proactive measurement of potential injuries. These are precursors of severe accidents: unsafe situations or events, that we detect proactively, before they could lead to a fatality or injury.
  3. In 4Q 2022, the Company recognized a $1,026 million impairment charge related to property, plant and equipment with respect to ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih (Ukraine) in the ACIS segment, where the ongoing conflict with Russia resulted in low levels of production, sales and income and created significant uncertainty about the timing and ability of operations to return to a normal level of activity. Attacks against Ukrainian power infrastructures caused additional operational issues for ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih and the increasing geopolitical tensions resulted in a substantial increase in the discount rate applied by the Company in its value in use calculation.
  4. Exceptional items for 4Q 2022 of $0.1 billion relates to a gain following the settlement of a claim in favour of ArcelorMittal for a breach of a supply contract.
  5. ROE refers to "Return on Equity" which is calculated as trailing twelve-month net income (excluding impairment charges and exceptional items) attributable to equity holders of the parent divided by the average equity attributable to the equity holders of the parent over the period.

  9. XCarb™ is designed to bring together all of ArcelorMittal’s reduced, low and zero-carbon products and steelmaking activities, as well as wider initiatives and green innovation projects, into a single effort focused on achieving demonstrable progress towards carbon neutral steel. Alongside the new XCarb™ brand, we have launched three XCarb™ initiatives: the XCarb™ innovation fund, XCarb™ green steel certificates and XCarb™ recycled and renewably produced for products made via the Electric Arc Furnace route using scrap. The Company is offering green steel using a system of certificates (XCarb® green certificates). These will be issued by an independent auditor to certify tonnes of CO2 savings achieved through the Company’s investment in decarbonization technologies in Europe. Net-zero equivalence is determined by assigning CO2 savings certificates equivalent to CO2 per tonne of steel produced in 2018 as baseline. The certificates will relate to the tonnes of CO2 saved in total, as a direct result of the decarbonization projects being implemented across a number of its European sites.

On March 9, 2023, ArcelorMittal announced that following receipt of customary regulatory approvals it has completed the acquisition of Companhia Siderúrgica do Pecém (‘CSP’) in Brazil for an enterprise value of approximately $2.2 billion. CSP has since been renamed ArcelorMittal Pecém and is a world-class operation, producing high-quality slab at a globally competitive cost. Its facility, located in the state of Ceará in northeast Brazil was commissioned in 2016. It operates a three million tonne capacity blast furnace and has access via conveyors to the Port of Pecém, a large-scale, deep-water port located 10 kilometers from the plant. The acquisition offers significant operational and financial synergies and brings with it the potential for further expansions, such as the option to add primary steelmaking capacity (including direct reduced iron) and rolling and finishing capacity. Given its location, ArcelorMittal Pecém also presents an opportunity to create a new low-carbon steelmaking hub, capitalizing on the state of Ceará’s ambition to develop a low-cost green hydrogen hub in Pecém.
