IBOVESPA

USIM5

OUTLOOK
International market: Inventory adjustments in the US and in Europe. Rising freight costs Likely reduction in Chinese exports due to expectations for the elimination of rebates and to the reaction of several countries against the exported volume Price recovery expected to start in the first half of 2007 Offer / demand stability during the second half of 2007

Domestic market: Expectation for demand growth over 8% (IBS). Demand will be spurred by recovery in volumes of heavy plates and by performance of industrial sectors Factors that can influence demand: - reduction in interest rates and maintenance of high credit volumes; - increase in investments on important steel consuming sectors and increased demand from the main industrial sectors

13

USIMINAS OUTLOOK FOR 2007

Total sales: approximately 8.0 million tons, stable compared with 2006 Domestic Market: 70% of total sales volume = 6% growth, spurred by demand increase, notably heavy plates Exports: 30% of total sales
