Mittal-Arcelor: the bid

The case discusses and highlights: (1) each company's development model and corporate governance, (2) key recent issues within the steel industry, such as globalisation, emerging countries and consolidation and the impact of each on the company's strategy and how it justified the bid, (3) Mittal Steel and Arcelor's similarities on industrial and geographical levels, and (4) the role of the state in protecting national champions and how governments and Arcelor questioned the logic of the takeover.
