Dofasco is a leading North American flat rolled steel producer with 1996 sales of nearly three billion dollars. Flat rolled product lines include hot rolled, cold rolled, galvanize and tinplate steels. Dofasco's major markets include automotive, construction, package goods, appliance and tubular market sectors.

Dofasco reported third quarter consolidated net income attributable to common shares of $43.6 million or 51 cents per share. This compared with third quarter 1996 results of $50.1 million net income or 58 cents per common share. Consolidated sales for the quarter of $743.6 million were slightly ahead of last year's results for the same period, of $732.4 million.
