Among the highlights provided by the company, United States Steel says the Tubular segment is expected to deliver its tenth quarter of consecutive EBITDA increases, in large part due to healthy customer demand, a strong value added product mix and increased average selling prices in the first quarter. 

What Else: "Momentum continues to build in the North American flat-rolled market," commented U. S. Steel President and CEO David B. Burritt.

"Strong safety and operating performance, improving order entry and our continued focus on winning share in strategic markets are resulting in better than expected first quarter guidance. We expect these trends to continue into the second quarter given extending lead times and the flow-through of higher selling prices."
