Conclusion

From the evidence I have collected I can come to the conclusion that both Arcelor and Mittal merged due to main reasons. These are: > Economies of scale: more output over a bigger company, cheaper costs and more profit. > Managerial economies of scale: cuts down the cost of 2 head offices and management teams > Financial economies of scale: easier to get a loan from the bank > Leadership position in high-end segments in North America, with strong R&D capabilities; > Operations in high-growth economies of Asia and South America with low-cost, profitable assets and local operations expertise in numerous emerging markets; > Access to raw materials and upstream integration > Well-balanced portfolio exposed to the whole spectrum of steel products ?? ?? ?? ??
