Preliminary Results of Changed Circumstances Review Based on record evidence, we preliminarily determine that Tamma is not the successor-in-interest to TIAC, the company in the Delverde/TIAC entity, which was excluded from the Pasta Order. Specifically, we preliminarily determine that the current management of Tamma is materially dissimilar to the management of TIAC before Delverde’s bankruptcy in 2005. We also preliminarily determine that the ownership and management structure of Tamma is materially dissimilar to the management of TIAC, due to the acquisition of TIAC’s stock by Satel S.r.L. (Satel) in 2016. In addition, we find that Tamma did not demonstrate that its operations, with respect to the subject merchandise, were materially similar to the operations of TIAC when it comes to supplier relationships and customer base. Thus, we preliminarily determine that Tamma does not operate as the same business entity as TIAC with respect to the subject merchandise. A list of topics discussed in the Preliminary Results of Changed Circumstances Review memorandum appears in the Appendix to this notice. Consequently, we preliminarily determine that Tamma should not be given the same antidumping duty treatment as the Delverde/TIAC entity. This determination will apply to all entries of the subject merchandise entered or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final results of this changed circumstances review.10 If we 9 See Tamma Initial Response, dated October 12, 2016, and Supplemental Response, dated December 9, 2016. 10 See Granular Polytetrafluoroethylene Resin from Italy: Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review, 68 FR 25327 (May 12, 2003).
