    Consistent with the Preliminary Results, the total net subsidy rate 
for Erbosan remained 0.30 percent ad valorem. In these final results, 
we have revised Borusan's total net subsidy rate to 0.19 percent ad 
valorem. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c), the calculated rates for

merchandise by Borusan and Erbosan entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after January 1, 2011, through 
December 31, 2011, without regard to CVDs because a de minimis subsidy 
rate was calculated for each company. We will also instruct CBP to 
continue to suspend liquidation but to collect no cash deposits of
