In determining whether one company is the successor-in-interest to another, the Department examines a number of factors including, but not limited to, changes in management, production facilities, supplier relationships, and customer base.6 While no single factor or combination of these factors will necessarily provide a dispositive indication of a successor-in-interest relationship, the Department will generally consider the new company to be the successor to the previous company if the new company’s resulting operation is not materially dissimilar to that of its predecessor.7 Thus, if the evidence demonstrates that, with respect to the production and sale of the subject merchandise, the new company operates as the same business entity as the prior company, the Department will assign the new company the cash deposit rate of its predecessor.8 In its August 22, 2014, submission, PPL provided information to demonstrate that it is the successor-ininterest to PMP. PPL states that the company’s management, production facilities and customer/supplier relationships have not changed as a result of its conversion to a private limited company. To support its claims, PPL submitted the following documents: (1) PMP’s partnership deed from 1986; (2) PPL’s new partnership deed from 2013; (3) the particulars of PPL’s capital shares and percent of shareholdings for each partner; (4) the certificate of incorporation; (5) the Memorandum of Association and Articles of Association of PPL showing details of the partnership; (6) PMP’s and PPL’s certificates issued by the Export mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 5 See 19 CFR 351.216(d); see also Notice and Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod From Mexico, 75 FR 67685 (Nov. 3, 2010). 6 See Notice of Initiation and Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand, 75 FR 61702, 61703 (Oct. 6, 2010) (Shrimp from Thailand) (unchanged in Notice of Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Thailand, 75 FR 74684 (Dec. 1, 2010); Industrial Phosphoric Acid From Israel; Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 59 FR 6944 (Feb. 14, 1994). 7 See Shrimp from Thailand, 75 FR at 61703. 8 Id.; see also Notice of Final Results of Changed Circumstances Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Polychloroprene Rubber From Japan, 67 FR 58 (Jan. 2, 2002); and Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from France: Final Results of ChangedCircumstances Review, 75 FR 34688 (June 10, 2010).

Based on the evidence on the record, we preliminarily find that PPL is the successor-in-interest to PMP. We find that, while PPL expanded to seven partners from two after its conversion to a private limited company, the original two partners retained a majority stake in PPL and no managers or other employees changed as a result of the conversion.9 As a result, we find that PPL operates as the same business entity as PMP. Moreover, PPL: (1) Retained the same production facility as PMP; 10 (2) continued to purchase raw shrimp from a majority of the same suppliers as PMP; 11 and (3) continued to supply the same U.S. customers.12 Therefore, we also find that the production facility, supplier relationships, and customers have not changed as a result of PMP’s conversion to PPL. Thus, we preliminarily find that PPL should receive the same AD deposit rate (i.e., 2.49 percent) with respect to the subject merchandise as PMP, its predecessor company. When it concludes that expedited action is warranted, the Department may publish the notice of initiation and preliminary results for a CCR concurrently.13 We have determined that expedition of this CCR is warranted because we have the information necessary to make a preliminary finding already on the record.14 Should our final results remain the same as these preliminary results, effective the date of publication of the final results, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to suspend entries of subject merchandise produced or exported by PPL at PMP’s cash deposit rate (i.e., 2.49 percent), effective on the publication date of our final results. notice.15 Parties will be notified of the time and date of any hearing, if requested.

SUMMARY: In response to a request by Premier Marine Products Private 
Limited (PPL), a producer/exporter of certain frozen warmwater shrimp 
(shrimp) from India, and pursuant to section 751(b) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930, as amended (the Act), 19 CFR 351.216 and 351.221(c)(3)(ii), 
the Department of Commerce (the Department) is initiating a changed 
circumstances review (CCR) of the antidumping duty (AD) order on shrimp

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The scope of this order includes certain frozen warmwater shrimp 
and prawns, whether wild-caught (ocean harvested) or farm-raised 
(produced by aquaculture), head-on or head-off, shell-on or peeled, 
tail-on or tail-off, deveined or not deveined, cooked or raw, or 
otherwise processed in frozen form.
    The frozen warmwater shrimp and prawn products included in the 
scope of this order, regardless of definitions in the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), are products which are processed 
from warmwater shrimp and prawns through freezing and which are sold in 
any count size.
    The products described above may be processed from any species of 
warmwater shrimp and prawns. Warmwater shrimp and prawns are generally 
classified in, but are not limited to, the Penaeidae family. Some 
examples of the farmed and wild-caught warmwater species include, but 
are not limited to, whiteleg shrimp (Penaeus vannemei), banana prawn 
(Penaeus merguiensis), fleshy prawn (Penaeus chinensis), giant river 
prawn (Macrobrachium rosenbergii), giant tiger prawn (Penaeus monodon), 
redspotted shrimp (Penaeus brasiliensis), southern brown shrimp 
(Penaeus subtilis), southern pink shrimp (Penaeus notialis), southern 
rough shrimp (Trachypenaeus curvirostris), southern white shrimp 
(Penaeus schmitti), blue shrimp (Penaeus stylirostris), western white 
shrimp (Penaeus occidentalis), and Indian white prawn (Penaeus 
indicus).
    Frozen shrimp and prawns that are packed with marinade, spices or 
sauce are included in the scope of this order. In addition, food 
preparations, which are not ``prepared meals,'' that contain more than 
20 percent by weight of shrimp or prawn are also included in the scope 
of this order.
    Excluded from the scope are: (1) Breaded shrimp and prawns (HTSUS 
subheading 1605.20.10.20); (2) shrimp and prawns generally classified 
in the Pandalidae family and commonly referred to as coldwater shrimp, 
in any state of processing; (3) fresh shrimp and prawns whether shell-
on or peeled (HTSUS subheadings 0306.23.00.20 and 0306.23.00.40); (4) 
shrimp and prawns in prepared meals (HTSUS subheading 1605.20.05.10); 
(5) dried shrimp and prawns; (6) canned warmwater shrimp and prawns 
(HTSUS subheading 1605.20.10.40); (7) certain battered shrimp. Battered 
shrimp is a shrimp-based product: (1) That is produced from fresh (or 
thawed-from-frozen) and peeled shrimp; (2) to which a ``dusting'' layer 
of rice or wheat flour of at least 95 percent purity has been applied; 
(3) with the entire surface of the shrimp flesh thoroughly and evenly 
coated with the flour; (4) with the non-shrimp content of the end 
product constituting between four and ten percent of the product's 
total weight after being dusted, but prior to being frozen; and (5) 
that is subjected to IQF freezing immediately after application of the 
dusting layer. When dusted in accordance with the definition of dusting 
above, the battered shrimp product is also coated with a wet viscous 
layer containing egg and/or milk, and par-fried.
    The products covered by this order are currently classified under 
the following HTSUS subheadings: 0306.17.00.03, 0306.17.00.06, 
0306.17.00.09, 0306.17.00.12, 0306.17.00.15, 0306.17.00.18, 
0306.17.00.21, 0306.17.00.24, 0306.17.00.27, 0306.17.00.40, 
1605.21.10.30, and 1605.29.10.10. These HTSUS subheadings are provided 
for convenience and for customs purposes only and are not dispositive, 
but rather the written description of the scope of this order is 
dispositive.

Initiation and Preliminary Results of Changed Circumstances Review

    Pursuant to section 751(b)(1)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216(d), 
the Department will conduct a CCR upon receipt of a request from an 
interested party for a review of an AD order which shows changed 
circumstances sufficient to warrant a review of the order. The 
information submitted by PPL supporting its claim that it is the 
successor-in-interest to PMP

[[Page 61291]]

demonstrates changed circumstances sufficient to warrant such a 
review.\5\

Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Carbon and 
Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod From Mexico, 75 FR 67685 (Nov. 3, 
2010).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with the above-referenced regulation, the Department 
is initiating a CCR to determine whether PPL is the successor-in-
interest to PMP. In determining whether one company is the successor-
in-interest to another, the Department examines a number of factors 
including, but not limited to, changes in management, production 
facilities, supplier relationships, and customer base.\6\ While no 
single factor or combination of these factors will necessarily provide 
a dispositive indication of a successor-in-interest relationship, the 
Department will generally consider the new company to be the successor 
to the previous company if the new company's resulting operation is not 
materially dissimilar to that of its predecessor.\7\ Thus, if the 
evidence demonstrates that, with respect to the production and sale of 
the subject merchandise, the new company operates as the same business 
entity as the prior company, the Department will assign the new company 
the cash deposit rate of its predecessor.\8\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In its August 22, 2014, submission, PPL provided information to 
demonstrate that it is the successor-in-interest to PMP. PPL states 
that the company's management, production facilities and customer/
supplier relationships have not changed as a result of its conversion 
to a private limited company. To support its claims, PPL submitted the 
following documents: (1) PMP's partnership deed from 1986; (2) PPL's 
new partnership deed from 2013; (3) the particulars of PPL's capital 
shares and percent of shareholdings for each partner; (4) the 
certificate of incorporation; (5) the Memorandum of Association and 
Articles of Association of PPL showing details of the partnership; (6) 
PMP's and PPL's certificates issued by the Export Inspection Council of 
India showing the same address for the production facility; (7) a list 
of the suppliers of PMP before, and PPL after, the conversion to a 
private limited company; (8) a list of the customers of PMP before, and 
PPL after, the conversion; and, (9) a list of the employees of PMP 
before, and PPL after, the conversion.
    Based on the evidence on the record, we preliminarily find that PPL 
is the successor-in-interest to PMP. We find that, while PPL expanded 
to seven partners from two after its conversion to a private limited 
company, the original two partners retained a majority stake in PPL and 
no managers or other employees changed as a result of the 
conversion.\9\ As a result, we find that PPL operates as the same 
business entity as PMP. Moreover, PPL: (1) Retained the same production 
facility as PMP; \10\ (2) continued to purchase raw shrimp from a 
majority of the same suppliers as PMP; \11\ and (3) continued to supply 
the same U.S. customers.\12\ Therefore, we also find that the 
production facility, supplier relationships, and customers have not 
changed as a result of PMP's conversion to PPL. Thus, we preliminarily 
find that PPL should receive the same AD deposit rate (i.e., 2.49 
percent) with respect to the subject merchandise as PMP, its 
predecessor company.

    When it concludes that expedited action is warranted, the

CCR is warranted because we have the information necessary to make a 
preliminary finding already on the record.\14\ Should our final results 
remain the same as these preliminary results, effective the date of 
publication of the final results, we will instruct U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection to suspend entries of subject merchandise produced or 
exported by PPL at PMP's cash deposit rate (i.e., 2.49 percent), 
effective on the publication date of our final results.
