See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). The Department finds that this case is extraordinarily complicated. Specifically, this case is extraordinarily complicated due to issues involving the universe of sales under review, affiliation, and surrogate country selection and valuation of factors of production.

    The current deadline for the final results of this review is

Extension of Time Limits for Final Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires the Department to complete the final results of an 
administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the

Act allows the Department to extend the 120-day time period for the

    The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete this

required to analyze some of the more complex issues raised by 
interested parties. For example, among other things, we need to further 
analyze cost adjustments related to revenues earned by Maquilacero on a 
special project and those related to sales of merchandise not produced 
during the period of review. Accordingly, the Department is extending 
the time limit for completion of the final results of this 
administrative review until no later than February 10, 2011, which is 
150 days after the date on which the preliminary results of review were 
published.
