Steel Dynamics, Inc. (NASDAQ/GS:STLD) is unique among
American steel companies. Founded in 1993, it is the youngest of
America's major steel companies. The company's initial public offering occurred
in 1996. It quickly grew to become one of the nation's premier carbon steel
mini-mill producers. Steel Dynamics' historic growth is a combination of
organic capacity greenfield additions and strategic acquisitions.
By adding upstream assets that provide raw materials needed to produce
high quality steel at each of its mini-mills, and bridging downstream
assets that fabricate a variety of high quality steel products, Steel Dynamics
has broadened its product portfolio and expanded its market diversity. As the
company's steelmaking capacity grew and it introduced new products to the
market, the company began delivering strong earnings.
Steel Dynamics remains at the top of its peer group, delivering superior financial performance. The company's operating income per ton shipped (a) and EBITDA margin percentage (b) have been at the top of its peer group in the last nine out of ten years. The company's competitive strengths include: low cost operations; diversified, value-added product portfolio; vertically integrated operating platforms; sustainable performance through the cycle; strong capital structure -- and most importantly, a superior, unique company culture driven by a performance-based compensation system that attracts and retains highly-talented and motivated employees.
