PITTSBURGH (AP) - US Steel is reporting a wider fourth-quarter loss on lower shipments and charges for restructuring costs and closing a plant.
United States Steel Corp. said Monday that it lost $122 million, or 84 cents per share. That compares with a loss of $50 million, or 35 cents per share, a year ago.
Revenue is down 5 percent, to $4.27 billion.
The company says that excluding items such as restructuring and a tax benefit it would have earned adjusted profit of 27 cents per share.
Analysts, who usually exclude one-time items, were expecting a loss of 25 cents per share on revenue of $4.36 billion.
