MOSCOW, July 14 (Reuters) - Russia’s largest steel producer NLMK said on Friday its second-quarter output fell 2 percent from the previous quarter to 4.14 million tonnes due to planned maintenance.
Compared with the second quarter of 2016, its output fell 3 percent, NLMK added in a statement.
The steelmaker, controlled by Russian billionaire Vladimir Lisin, also said its second-quarter group sales grew by 13 percent quarter-on-quarter to 4.15 million tonnes due to the seasonal uptick in sales of finished products in Russia.
