Jan 21 2014 , Luxembourg/New Delhi
The bond was issued by a wholly owned subsidiary of ArcelorMittal on December 28, 2009, and the conditions were amended on January 16, the company said in a statement.
"The mandatory conversion date of the bond has been extended to 29 January 2016. The other main features of the MCB remain unchanged," ArcelorMittal said.
The bond was placed with a Luxembourg affiliate of Credit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank and is not listed.
ArcelorMittal also said it reduced two syndicated revolving credit facilities on November 26.
The facilities, entered into in March 2011 and May 2010, were cut to USD 3.6 billion from USD 6 billion and to USD 2 billion from USD 4 billion, respectively.
The company gave notice today to redeem all of its outstanding USD 650 million subordinated perpetual capital securities on February 20, 2014, following the occurrence of a ratings agency event.
