Lourenco Goncalves, Cleveland-Cliffs' Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Our second quarter is a definitive statement about the new Cliffs and our earnings power. After almost four years of consistent execution of a well-designed and thoroughly implemented strategy, our company has become a very powerful cash-generating enterprise. With the announced sale of the Asia Pacific Iron Ore segment, we have now completed our multi-year transformation back to our roots as a supplier of high-grade iron units to the Great Lakes steel industry.
Going forward, we expect 2019 to be a continuation of a great 2018
