For each of the first 1,000 hashtags, the campaign will provide a thank you meal from Chefd, a gourmet, fresh ingredient meal-kit delivery service, to a caregiver identified by the Caregiver Action Network.

Steel Dynamics, the company offered third quarter 2015 earnings guidance in the range of $0.20 to $0.24 per diluted share, higher than sequential second quarter 2015 earnings of $0.13 per diluted share and less than prior year third quarter earnings of $0.38 per diluted share.

Second quarter 2015 earnings comprised expenses associated with idling the companys Minnesota iron operations of $0.07 per diluted share and reduced earnings related to the planned furnace maintenance outage at Iron Dynamics of $0.02 per diluted share. Prior year third quarter earnings comprised acquisition costs and purchase accounting adjustments related to the Severstal Columbus acquisition of $0.09 per diluted share.

Profitability from the companys steel operations for the third quarter 2015 is predictable to be slightly improved in comparison to the sequential second quarter 2015 results, based on modest overall metal spread expansion offset by slightly lower steel shipments. Overall average product pricing is predictable to be relatively unchanged in the quarter. The companys steel scrap costs are predictable to decline in the third quarter 2015; however, based on the companys FIFO inventory accounting methodology, further scrap declines that have occurred in September will benefit the fourth quarter 2015 metal spread. Regarding steel volume, flat roll steel shipments, specifically commodity-grade hot roll products, are predictable to decline in the third quarter 2015, due to the continued excessive level of steel imports, combined with increasing service center inventories. The heavy equipment, agricultural and energy markets remain challenged, while automotive remains strong and construction continues to improve.

Continued strong demand for the companys fabricated steel joist and decking products indicates the non-residential construction market is ongoing a positive trend. Third quarter 2015 profitability from the companys fabrication operations is predictable to be at record levels, as modest spread compression from reduced average pricing is predictable to be more than offset by improved shipments.

Steel Dynamics, Inc. (SDI) is a steel producing and a metal recycling company. The Company operates in three segments: steel operations, metals recycling and ferrous resources operations, and steel fabrication operations.
