Luxembourg, 30 January 2013 - ArcelorMittal today announces the publication of sell-side analysts'
consensus forecasts for ArcelorMittal's 2012 fourth quarter EBITDA. The consensus figures are
based on analyst estimates recorded on an external web based tool to be provided and managed by an
independent company called Vuma Financial Services Limited (trade name: Vuma Consensus). 
To arrive at the consensus figures below, VUMA have aggregated the expectations of sell side
analysts who, to our best knowledge, cover ArcelorMittal on a continuous basis. This is a group of
about 30 brokers currently. The listed analysts follow ArcelorMittal on their own initiative and
ArcelorMittal is not responsible for their views.
On this page we provide you with the analyst estimates compiled by Vuma Consensus, and
