To buy or not to buy? The sale of Severstal-Lucchini

Report summary

Cash-strapped potential bidders have remained cautious of Europe's excess capacity and Italy's sluggish demand growth, and the bids for the Italian assets were few. However, most assets attracted bids, as knock-off prices offered investment opportunities in the know-how of European steelmaking and Italy provides a foothold in a finally recovering European, if not Italian, market.
