In March 2018, the Chilean government unveiled big news: Corporate investors, including South Korean electronics giant Samsung, would build three factories in Chile to produce battery parts for electric vehicles. Chile had lured the companies with an enticing offer. In exchange for helping the South American country, the world's No. 2 miner of lithium, jumpstart its own EV battery industry, the firms would get a guaranteed supply of the coveted metal at attractive prices for nearly three decades amid a global race to lock down supplies.
Moody's Investors Service has assigned a Baa1 rating to the proposed senior unsecured USD notes to be issued by POSCO (Baa1 stable).

SANTIAGO/SEOUL, June 21(Reuters) - South Korea's POSCO has pulled out of a project to build battery parts in Chile, the Asian steelmaker said, little more than a year after winning guaranteed access to cheap lithium from top producer Albemarle. POSCO, together with partner Samsung SDI, won a 2018 Chilean government tender to build a battery-parts factory in the country's northern desert in exchange for a 27-year supply of low-cost lithium. The problem, POSCO told Reuters, is that the project it proposed requires lithium hydroxide, a type of the metal increasingly favored by makers of batteries for electric vehicles (EV) but one not produced by Albemarle in Chile.

Japan on Wednesday demanded talks with South Korea over a Korean court compensation award against a Japanese company for using forced labourers during World War Two, saying all such claims were settled decades ago. Ties between the Asian neighbours have been frosty since the court ruled in October that Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corp should pay 100 million won (£70,074) to each of four South Korean plaintiffs. The court on Tuesday approved a request by the plaintiffs to seize assets held by Nippon Steel in South Korea.
South Korean plaintiffs in a World War Two forced labour court case against Japan's Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corp have applied to seize some of Nippon Steel's Korean assets, their lawyers said on Wednesday. The application for the asset seizure, if approved by the court, could further strain South Korea's already frosty bilateral relations with Japan over the issue. Japan denounced a South Korean Supreme Court ruling in October that Nippon Steel should pay 100 million won (70,924.76 pounds) to each of four South Koreans to compensate them for suffering forced labour during the war.
POSCO's (PKX) performance will likely be affected by volatile exchange rate, despite focus on mergers and business expansion, strong demand and improvement in steel export.
