marcelito -- you beat me to it. Spot on. This is the future of Japan Inc. -- a bunch of forced mergers brought on by changes in the global market place that Japanese managers like these either did not anticipate and/or were too slow to react to. Truly sad picture.

ArcelorMittal is not Indian company. Majority shareholder and CEO is Indian but its headquarters is in Luxembourg. Mittal(Rotterdam based) bought Arcelor(Luxmebourg based) to form ArcelorMittal.
