FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This report contains information that may constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. We intend the forward-looking statements to be covered by the safe harbor provisions for forward-looking statements in those sections. Generally, we have identified such forward-looking statements by using the words “believe,” “expect,” “intend,” “estimate,” “anticipate,” “project,” “target,” “forecast,” “aim,” “should,” “will” and similar expressions or by using future dates in connection with any discussion of, among other things, operating performance, trends, events or developments that we expect or anticipate will occur in the future, statements relating to volume changes, share of sales and earnings per share changes, anticipated cost savings, potential capital and operational cash improvements, U. S. Steel's future ability and plans to take ownership of its Big River Steel joint venture as a wholly owned subsidiary, and statements expressing general views about future operating results. However, the absence of these words or similar expressions does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking. Forward-looking statements are not historical facts, but instead represent only the Company’s beliefs regarding future events, many of which, by their nature, are inherently uncertain and outside of the Company’s control. It is possible that the Company’s actual results and financial condition may differ, possibly materially, from the anticipated results and financial condition indicated in these forward-looking statements. Management believes that these forward-looking statements are reasonable as of the time made. However, caution should be taken not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements because such statements speak only as of the date when made. Our Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law. In addition, forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from our Company's historical experience and our present expectations or projections. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to the risks and uncertainties described in this report in “Item 1A. Risk Factors” and those described from time to time in our future reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

References in this Annual Report on Form 10-K to "U. S. Steel," "the Company," "we," "us," and "our" refer to United States Steel Corporation and its consolidated subsidiaries unless otherwise indicated by the context.

Non-Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (non-GAAP) Financial Measures

This report contains certain non-GAAP financial measures such as earnings (loss) before interest, income taxes, depreciation, depletion and amortization (EBITDA), adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net earnings (loss), adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted share, free cash flow, net debt and cash conversion cycle.

We believe that EBITDA, considered along with the net earnings (loss), is a relevant indicator of trends relating to cash generating activity and provides management and investors with additional information for comparison of our operating results to the operating results of other companies.

Adjusted net earnings (loss) and adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted share are non-GAAP measures that exclude the effects of restructuring and other charges, the December 24, 2018 Clairton coke making facility fire, the Big River Steel options mark to market, the impact of the tax valuation allowance, the 2018 United Steelworkers labor agreement signing bonus and related costs, Granite City Works temporary idling and restart charges, the loss on shutdown of certain tubular pipe mill assets, gains associated with the sale of our retained interest in U. S. Steel Canada Inc., gains on equity investee transactions, loss on extinguishment of debt and other related costs, the effect of tax reform and other adjustments that are not part of the Company's core operations (Adjustment Items). Adjusted EBITDA is also a non-GAAP measure that excludes the effects of the Adjustment Items. We present adjusted net earnings (loss), adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted share and adjusted EBITDA to enhance the understanding of our ongoing operating performance and established trends affecting our core operations, by excluding the effects of events that can obscure underlying trends. U. S. Steel's management considers adjusted net earnings (loss), adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted share and adjusted EBITDA as alternative measures of operating performance and not alternative measures of the Company's liquidity. U. S. Steel’s management considers adjusted net earnings (loss), adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted share and adjusted EBITDA useful to investors by facilitating a comparison of our operating performance to the operating performance of our competitors. Additionally, the presentation of adjusted net earnings (loss), adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted share and adjusted EBITDA provides insight into management’s view and assessment of the Company’s ongoing operating performance, because management does not consider the adjusting items when evaluating the Company’s financial performance. Adjusted net earnings (loss), adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted share and adjusted EBITDA should not be considered a substitute for net earnings (loss),

earnings (loss) per diluted share or other financial measures as computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP and is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Net debt is a non-GAAP measure calculated as total debt less cash and cash equivalents. We believe net debt is a useful measure in calculating enterprise value. Both EBITDA and net debt are used by analysts to refine and improve the accuracy of their financial models which utilize enterprise value.

Free cash flow is a measure of cash generated from operations, after any investing activity and dividends paid to stockholders. We believe that free cash flow provides further insight into the Company's overall utilization of cash.

We believe the cash conversion cycle is a useful measure in providing investors with information regarding our cash management performance and is a widely accepted measure of working capital management efficiency. The cash conversion cycle should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to other GAAP metrics as an indicator of performance.

10-K SUMMARY

This section provides an overview of U. S. Steel's business, strategy and financial performance for 2019. It does not contain all of the information that may be important to a reader. Please read the entire Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Our vision is for U. S. Steel to be the industry leader in delivering high-quality, value-added products and innovative solutions that address our customers' most challenging steel needs. Underlying our efforts is our belief that we must operate as a principled company committed to a code of conduct that is rooted in our Gary Principles and our core values. Our core values are articulated in our S.T.E.E.L. Principles - Safety First, Trust and Respect, Environmentally Friendly Activities, Ethical Behavior, and Lawful Business Conduct. These core values guide U. S. Steel and help support the economic and societal benefits associated with strong domestic manufacturing capabilities, of which steel is a foundational industry.

We aim to achieve our vision by successfully executing on our world-competitive, “best of both” strategy. By bringing together the best of the integrated steelmaking model with the best of the mini mill steelmaking model, we will transform our business to drive long-term cash flow through industry cycles. We aim to offer an unparalleled product platform to serve customers, achieve world-competitive positioning in strategic, high-margin end markets, and deliver high-quality, value-added products and innovative solutions that address our customers' most challenging steel needs. To become a “best of both” company, we are enhancing our focus on operational and commercial excellence and promoting technological innovation, so we can establish a more competitive cost structure and enhance our capabilities … two key drivers for our strategy.

The diagram below illustrates our world-competitive “best of both” strategic framework and highlights the key actions to transform our business.

strategycircle1.jpg

Over the past several years, we have proactively re-shaped our footprint and transformed our balance sheet. We used the strength and foundation of our business to align our balance sheet with the investment horizon to execute our strategy.

Our strategy is informed by our critical success factors, which are the bedrock of the “best of both" strategy: (1) Move

Down the Cost Curve; (2) Win in Strategic Markets; and (3) Move Up the Talent Curve. Several of the strategic projects we are undertaking are expected to result in operational improvements. Additionally, the enhanced operating model and organizational structure we implemented beginning in 2020 will also position U. S. Steel to lower its structural fixed costs. We are also investing in new technologies to improve our cost position and increase our capabilities, including our investment in Big River Steel, the electric arc furnace (EAF) at Fairfield Tubular Operations, endless casting and rolling at Mon Valley Works, Gary Works hot strip mill upgrades and the dynamo line at our USSK facility which is within our USSE segment. We will focus on strategic markets, where there is the greatest opportunity to provide differentiated, innovative and value-added solutions that will help our customers succeed. We know that to accomplish our objectives, we also need to move up the talent curve, which we are doing by investing in our employees and providing the training and resources they need to succeed. This will help us reinforce a culture where accountability, fairness and respect are foundational, and high performance and inclusion in all its forms are valued and celebrated.

In 2019, we announced several transformation initiatives key to our strategy. On October 31, 2019, U. S. Steel acquired a 49.9% ownership interest in Big River Steel at a purchase price of approximately $683 million in cash, with a call option to acquire the remaining 50.1% within the next four years. Our investment in Big River Steel will add sustainable steel making technology to our footprint and improve our competitive positioning. Big River Steel is a technological leader combining mini mill technology with aspects of the integrated model to achieve the benefits of each. In December 2019, we announced our intention to indefinitely idle a significant portion of our Great Lakes Works operation near Detroit, Michigan. We expect to begin idling the iron and steelmaking facilities on or around April 1, 2020, and the hot strip mill rolling facility before the end of 2020. This action will transition our footprint to focus on facilities and assets that are differentiated by cost and/or capability.

Ultimately, we intend to center our North American Flat-Rolled operations around three distinct, market-leading assets: Big River Steel, Mon Valley Works, and Gary Works, to transform the business to offer customers differentiated products to deliver highly competitive long-term cash flow generation through higher earnings and lower maintenance capital expenditures.

KEY PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

This section provides an overview of select key performance indicators for U. S. Steel which management and investors use to assess the Company's financial performance. It does not contain all of the information you should consider. Fluctuations for year to year changes are explained in Item 7. "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations."


chart-9aa6df70f70a58159fb.jpg
         
Our 2019 net loss includes unfavorable restructuring impacts of $275 million for the indefinite idling of certain of our Flat-Rolled facilities, plant exit costs at USSE and Company-wide headcount reductions implemented to reduce fixed costs and support our strategy to become a world-competitive, "best of both" steel company. Our financial results were also negatively impacted by lower average realized prices across all of our business segments, significant market challenges in our USSE segment and a $334 million non-cash charge to tax expense that increased the valuation allowance related to our net domestic deferred tax asset.
Our 2018 net earnings include a favorable impact of $374 million due to the reversal of a portion of our deferred tax asset valuation allowance.
Our 2017 net earnings include an $81 million income tax benefit from enacted tax legislation.

After a significant earnings improvement in 2018, we faced a challenging year in 2019 as market conditions in the U.S. weakened in the latter half of the year. Our USSE segment faced significant market challenges from weakening economic conditions, primarily in the manufacturing sector.
These amounts are derived starting from net (loss) earnings as shown on page 7. For a full reconciliation of adjusted net (loss) earnings see page 18.

These amounts are derived starting from net (loss) earnings as shown on page 7. For a full reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA see page 20.
EBITDA decreased primarily in our Flat-Rolled and USSE segments in 2019. The primary driver of decreased EBITDA in our Flat-Rolled segment was lower average realized prices related to weakening demand in the latter half of 2019. Our USSE segment temporarily idled one blast furnace as it experienced reduced shipment levels and lower average realized prices as a result of significant market challenges from weakening economic conditions, primarily in the manufacturing sector, and continued high levels of imports, coupled with domestic CO2 cost disadvantages compared to imports. Tubular results continued to be negatively impacted by high levels of imports which resulted in lower selling prices.
EBITDA increased from 2017 to 2018 for all three reportable segments with higher average realized prices in all three segments.

The decrease in net sales in 2019 as compared to 2018 was primarily due to lower average realized prices in all of our reportable segments and significantly reduced shipments in our USSE segment. Lower average realized prices in our Flat-Rolled and Tubular segments reflect weakening market conditions in the latter half of 2019. Reduced shipment levels and lower average realized prices in our USSE segment were the result of significant market challenges from weakening economic conditions, primarily in the manufacturing sector, and continued high levels of imports, coupled with domestic CO2 cost disadvantages compared to imports.
The increase in net sales in 2018 as compared to 2017 was primarily due to higher average realized prices in all of our reportable segments and increased shipments in our Flat-Rolled and Tubular segments due to improved market conditions. Improved market conditions for our Flat-Rolled segment reflected accelerated demand for steel products in line with the recent economic growth, as well as the supply-demand balance between imported and domestic steel. The restart of the two blast furnaces at our Granite City Works during 2018 enabled us to take advantage of the improved market dynamics in 2018.

In 2019, the positive cash flow from operations was primarily due to efficient use of working capital.
In 2018 and 2017, improved financial performance more than offset the investment in working capital.
Our cash conversion cycle was 30, 28 and 37 days for 2017, 2018 and 2019, respectively. See “Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations – Financial Condition, Cash Flows and Liquidity – Cash Flows” for the calculation of our cash conversion cycle.

The free cash flow shown above was derived starting from cash flow from operations as shown on page 12. For a full reconciliation of free cash flow see page 21.
A portion of our cash from operations in 2019 was spent on major projects to pursue our strategy to become a world-competitive, "best of both" steel company. Our capital expenditures of $1.3 billion included spending on the new endless casting and rolling facility at our Mon Valley Works and upgrades to the Gary Works hot strip mill, which are both in our Flat-Rolled segment, and spending on the new EAF in our Tubular segment.
Capital expenditures totaled $1.0 billion in 2018, a significant increase from 2017. Our 2018 capital expenditures included $335 million on asset revitalization projects that were focused on delivering improvements in safety, quality, delivery and cost for critical assets in our Flat-Rolled segment.

In the years leading up to 2018 and 2019, the Company undertook a focused effort to repay or refinance its debt in order to ensure a secure foundation to support execution of its strategy. Beginning with the asset revitalization program, and continuing with the "best of both" strategy, the Company has been maintaining cash in furtherance of its priorities.
Maintaining strong cash and liquidity to support and enable execution of our strategy continues to be a priority. Our total liquidity in 2019 remained strong and supported our ability to satisfy short-term obligations, fund working capital requirements, and enable execution of key strategic priorities including the acquisition of our 49.9% ownership interest in Big River Steel, restart of construction of the electric arc furnace (EAF) at our Fairfield Tubular Operations, invest in the endless casting and rolling facility at Mon Valley Works and invest in the new Dynamo line within our USSE segment.

The increase in debt in 2019 was primarily related to net drawings that totaled approximately $760 million on our credit facilities, the $350 million issuance of senior convertible notes and the net increase in environmental revenue bonds of $220 million.
Net debt was derived starting from total debt as shown in the full reconciliation on page 21.
The increase in net debt in 2019 was primarily related to the increase in debt described above and the use of funds to purchase our 49.9% ownership interest in Big River Steel, fund the electric arc furnace construction at Fairfield Tubular Operations and finance other capital expenditures.

The increase in 2019 pension and OPEB expense from 2018 was mainly due to increased contributions to the Steelworkers' Pension Trust (SPT) in 2019 in accordance with the increase in the contribution rate per hour required under the 2018 Labor Agreements (defined below).
The increase in 2018 pension and OPEB expense from 2017 is mainly due to a lower return on assets assumption for pension assets.

The funded status of our pension plan improved by $250 million in 2019 primarily due to higher asset performance and an update to our mortality assumptions partially offset by a decrease in the discount rate. The funded status of our OPEB plan improved by $410 million in 2019 primarily due to higher asset performance, reductions in future health care costs and changes in assumptions on future participant enrollment.
At the end of 2019, on a U.S. GAAP basis the funded status was 93% and 108% for our pension and OPEB obligations, respectively as compared to a funded status of 88% for both obligations at the end of 2018.
Due to the improvement in our funded status, required contributions to the pension plan that were previously projected to begin in 2021 are now projected to begin in 2024.
For further details, see Note 18 to the Consolidated Financial Statements.

PART I

Item 1. BUSINESS

United States Steel Corporation (U. S. Steel) is an integrated steel producer of flat-rolled and tubular products with major production operations in the United States and Europe. An integrated steel producer uses iron ore and coke as primary raw materials for steel production. U. S. Steel has annual raw steel production capability of 22.0 million net tons (17.0 million tons in the United States and 5.0 million tons in Europe). U. S. Steel supplies customers throughout the world primarily in the automotive, construction, consumer (packaging and appliance), electrical, industrial equipment,and energy (oil country tubular goods (OCTG) and line pipe) markets. According to the World Steel Association’s latest published statistics, in 2018 U. S. Steel was the third largest steel producer in the United States and the twenty-sixth largest steel producer in the world. U. S. Steel is also engaged in other business activities consisting primarily of railroad services and real estate operations. U. S. Steel is a Delaware corporation established in 1901.

Segments

U. S. Steel has three reportable segments: North American Flat-Rolled (Flat-Rolled), U. S. Steel Europe (USSE) and Tubular Products (Tubular). The results of our 49.9% ownership interest in Big River Steel and our railroad and real estate businesses that do not constitute reportable segments are combined and disclosed in the Other Businesses category.

Flat-Rolled

The Flat-Rolled segment includes the operating results of U. S. Steel’s integrated steel plants and equity investees in North America (except for Big River Steel, which is included in Other Businesses) involved in the production of slabs, strip mill plates, sheets and tin mill products, as well as all iron ore and coke production facilities in the United States. These operations primarily serve North American customers in the service center, conversion, transportation (including automotive), construction, container, and appliance and electrical markets.

Flat-Rolled has aggregate annual raw steel production capability of 17.0 million tons produced at our Gary Works, Mon Valley Works, Great Lakes Works and Granite City Works facilities. Raw steel production was 11.4 million tons in 2019, 11.9 million tons in 2018 and 10.8 million tons in 2017. Raw steel production averaged 67 percent of capability in 2019, 70 percent of capability in 2018 and 64 percent of capability in 2017. During December 2015 the Granite City Works steelmaking operations were temporarily idled. The steelmaking operations and hot strip mill were restarted during 2018 and 2017, respectively. If its production capability is excluded during the temporary idle period, Flat-Rolled production would have been 76 percent in 2017.

European Operations

The USSE segment includes the operating results of U. S. Steel Košice (USSK), U. S. Steel’s integrated steel plant and coke production facilities in Slovakia, and its subsidiaries. USSE conducts its business mainly in Central and Western Europe and primarily serves customers in the European transportation (including automotive), construction, container, appliance, electrical, service center, conversion and oil, gas and petrochemical markets. USSE produces and sells slabs, strip mill plate, sheet, tin mill products and spiral welded pipe, as well as refractory ceramic materials.

USSE has annual raw steel production capability of 5.0 million tons. USSE’s raw steel production was 3.9 million tons in 2019, 5.0 million tons in 2018, and 5.1 million tons in 2017. USSE’s raw steel production averaged 78 percent of capability in 2019, 100 percent of capability in 2018 and 102 percent of capability in 2017.

Tubular

The Tubular segment includes the operating results of U. S. Steel’s tubular production facilities and an equity investee in the United States. These operations produce and sell seamless and electric resistance welded (ERW) steel casing and tubing (commonly known as OCTG), and standard and line pipe and mechanical tubing and primarily serve customers in the oil, gas and petrochemical markets. Tubular's annual production capability is 1.9 million tons.

U. S. Steel Tubular Products, Inc. (USSTP), a wholly owned subsidiary of U. S. Steel, continues to design and develop a range of premium and semi-premium connections to address the growing needs for technical solutions for our end users' well site production challenges. Through its wholly owned subsidiary, U. S. Steel Oilwell Services, LLC, USSTP
