A proposed joint venture between state-owned Steel Authority of India Ltd and ArcelorMittal SA (ADR) (NYSE:MT) to build an $897 million automotive steel plant in India has hit an impasse, with the two disagreeing on key terms, officials said. India’s biggest state-owned steel company and the world’s No. 1 producer of the metal signed a deal in May 2015 to set up a plant for automotive grades to tap rising demand in one of the world’s fastest growing steel markets and a major car export hub. After a series of failed attempts to hammer out several sticking points – the most important being a revenue-sharing formula – negotiations have come to a standstill, the sources said. A deadline to close the deal ends in May. ArcelorMittal declined to comment. A Sail spokesman said the negotiations are still in progress. Sail, which has been posting losses for seven straight quarters, was hoping the joint venture will help it move to higher grades of steel in the automotive segment, dominated by private players such as Tata Steel Ltd and JSW Steel Ltd. A separate technical tie-up between South Korean steel major Posco and Sail has also failed to take off. A collapse of the proposed joint venture with ArcelorMittal would further hamper its efforts at a turnaround, and would add to steel ministry’s headache when the government is looking to sell its stakes in three of Sail’s loss-making units.
