HELSINKI, May 22 Finland's Outokumpu,
one of the world's largest makers of stainless steel, believes
the European Commission will come up with safeguard measures
next month to protect the industry, its chief executive said.
Jan 31 Outokumpu expects rising raw
material costs, a weaker U.S. dollar and lower ferrochrome
prices to hit its first quarter profit, the Finnish stainless
steel maker said on Wednesday, wiping out this year's gain in
its share price.
