BRUSSELS (Reuters) – ArcelorMittal, the world’s largest steelmaker, reported higher than expected first quarter earnings after what its chief executive said was a “very positive” start to the year.
The Luxembourg-based company said on Thursday first-quarter core profit (EBITDA), the figure most watched by the market, was $3.24 billion, more than triple the year-ago figure of $967 million and higher than the average forecast in a company poll of $2.97 billion.
