Kosice, Slovak Republic, February 20, 2008 - U. S. Steel EUROPE will increase prices of Hot Rolled, Cold Rolled and Coated products effective with orders placed for delivery in April 2008 by EUR 100/ton. This announcement is in addition to any previously increased first quarter transaction prices and applies to orders at U. S. Steel Kosice, s.r.o. and U. S. Steel Serbia, d.o.o. Further price increases are likely in the second quarter to offset the higher cost of raw materials used to make steel.
