Adjustments due to weak BRL currency

Luiz Fernando Martinez, CSN’s commercial director, said the price increases are due to a weaker BRL currency against the USD, the price of certain USD-denominated raw materials and steady domestic steel demand.

Martinez said HRC sells at $760/mt-780/mt in China, while the same product sells at a much cheaper price in Brazil. However, he did not give a specific price for the product in Brazil, Valor said.
