International Steel Group
Profiles veteran investor Wilbur L. Ross, Jr.'s plan to turn around the aging steel assets of LTV, formerly America's second largest integrated steel producer. Purchasing several key assets from LTV under Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code, Ross is able to acquire the assets free of any pension or healthcare liabilities to retirees. Examines the challenges Ross faces as he tries to make the reborn steel company into a global player as one of the world's lowest cost producers. To accomplish this, he must negotiate a new agreement with the steelworkers' union, transform the old LTV culture, and secure long-term contracts with the right customers who could fulfill ISG's capacity requirements.
