SSAB communicated on May 3 that the company has placed an offer to buy the north American steel producer IPSCO and for this reason SSAB will post-pone the capital markets day earlier planned for May 9.

The reason for this is that there should be more to be communicated about SSAB in the fall of 2007.

The management team of SSAB is looking forward to welcome the financial community and media to a Capital Markets Day in the fall 2007 and will announce the date for this event in the near future.
