LUXEMBOURG / ACCESSWIRE / February 14, 2020 /Ternium S.A. (NYSE:TX) today issued the following statement:
Ternium has been advised that an Italian court investigating alleged improper payments made in Brazil for the possible benefit of a subsidiary of Tenaris S.A., an affiliate of the Company, has decided to move the case to trial involving Chairman Paolo Rocca, Board members Gianfelice Rocca and Roberto Bonatti, and the Company’s controlling shareholder, San Faustin S.A. Neither Ternium nor any of its subsidiaries are involved in those proceedings.
Ternium’s outside counsel has informed that, after having previously reviewed the Italian prosecutors’ investigative file, neither that file nor this magistrate’s decision sets forth evidence of involvement by any of the three directors in the alleged wrongdoing. Accordingly, the Board has concluded that no particular action is warranted at the present time, other than inviting the referred board members to continue discharging their respective responsibilities with the full support of the Board.
