Meeting of the President's Export Council, 29842-29843 [2016-11485]

Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES 29842 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 93 / Friday, May 13, 2016 / Notices With respect to management, Hyundai Steel retained its board of directors and discharged the board of directors of HYSCO, with the exception of Mr. Heon-seok Lee, who was a board member and executive (Chief Director of Pipe Factory Manufacturing Support Group) of HYSCO and who remains with Hyundai Steel as a member of the board of directors and an executive (Chief Director of Pipe Factory and Head of Automotive Parts Production Office).11 In addition, 12 of 17 HYSCO executives remain at Hyundai Steel, nine of whom continue to work in business units similar to the HYSCO units where they were employed. Hyundai Steel further explained that its current organizational structure is substantially similar to that of HYSCO; the only difference is that the management team of the former company is now integrated into the larger management structure of Hyundai Steel.12 Hyundai Steel explained that the only changes within the organizational structure are that certain business units (of HYSCO) were divided and integrated into Hyundai Steel’s business units.13 The documentation submitted in the CCR Request demonstrates that the units specifically related to the production and sale of the subject merchandise by Hyundai Steel remain the same, other than changes in the names of the plants and divisions, as they were for HYSCO.14 Based on this information, and in particular, based on the fact that Hyundai Steel’s management team continues to include the majority of the former HYSCO managers, we preliminarily find that the reorganization resulting from the merger of the two companies did not result in management that was materially dissimilar with respect to the subject merchandise. With respect to production facilities, Hyundai Steel reported that there have been no changes.15 Hyundai Steel provided copies of HYSCO’s company brochure and noted that the location of the production facility, in Ulsan, Korea, also remains unchanged.16 Based on this information, we preliminarily find that the merger did not result in material changes to the production of the subject merchandise. With respect to suppliers and customers, Hyundai Steel provided information that demonstrates that there Public Comment Interested parties may submit case briefs and/or written comments not later than 14 days after the date of 11 Id. at 8 and Exhibit 3. 12 Id. at 7. 13 Id. at 7. 14 See CCR Request at 7–8. 15 Id. at 9. 16 Id. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:05 May 12, 2016 are only marginal differences to its supplier relationships. Specifically, prior to the merger, Hyundai Steel was HYSCO’s largest supplier of hot-rolled coil; after the merger, Hyundai Steel continues to be the largest supplier of this input to the production of the subject merchandise. Although other suppliers of hot-rolled coil to HYSCO prior to the merger are no longer providing hot-rolled coil, Hyundai Steel explained that these suppliers provided only a small portion of the input to HYSCO before the merger.17 Hyundai Steel explained that the merger had no effect on the customers or sales practices in the U.S. (other than a short interruption in sales) or domestic markets because Hyundai Steel is now selling the subject merchandise to the same customers in exactly the same manner as HYSCO did. Hyundai Steel elaborated that the same customers accounted for 98 percent of the customer base following the merger. Based on our consideration of the totality of the evidence provided by Hyundai Steel, we preliminarily determine that Hyundai Steel is the successor-in-interest to HYSCO, for purposes of the application of the antidumping duty order. Specifically, with respect to the production and sale of the subject merchandise, we find that the merger of these two companies resulted in no significant changes to management or production facilities. Additionally, the minor changes in supplier relationships and customers that Hyundai Steel identified indicate that there had been no material change in suppliers of inputs or services related to the production, sale and distribution of the subject merchandise, and thus do not weigh against finding that Hyundai Steel is the successor-in-interest to HYSCO. Thus, Hyundai Steel operates as the same business entity as HYSCO with respect to the subject merchandise. If the Department upholds this preliminary determination in the final results, Hyundai Steel will retain the antidumping duty deposit rate currently assigned to HYSCO with respect to the subject merchandise (i.e., 3.69 percent). If these preliminary results are adopted in the final results of this changed circumstances review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to suspend liquidation of entries of CWP made by Hyundai Steel, effective the date of publication of the final results. 17 Id.
