FAS permitted to increase the prices of steel for AvtoVAZ

Federal antimonopoly service finished the consideration of AvtoVAZ claim about the prices of steel overstating by Severstal company. FAS didnt reveal the violation of antimonopoly legislation by metallurgical company in pricing of automotive steel sheet for AvtoVAZ and Sollers for 2011, informed Auto.Lenta.Ru.
It should be recalled that AvtoVAZ gave the claim to FAS at the end of the previous year by declaring about the price of steel increasing by 30% by Severstal and it asked to examine the legality of this action. At the same time another Russian company Sollers applied to FAS with the request to check the validity of price of steel increasing.
Meanwhile, AvtoVAZ announced that it has steel only for several days and if the plant doesnt agree with Severstal till the beginning of February then it will have to conclude the temporary agreement for one month. Therewith, the representatives of AvtoVAZ remarked that if the metallurgists will increase the price by 30% then the price growth could be 3,5%. But the models Lada have already risen in prices in average by 4%.
As RBK daily informed, Severstal announced that it is ready to offer the price formula to AvtoVAZ for 2011, the basement of which will be the fair basic price for rolled-metal, considerably lower than the world prices. The metallurgical company underlined that in spite of price for domestic passenger cars increasing by 34% the last six years, the rolled-metal rose in price not more than by 7%. There were also periods, when the price of rolled-metal decreased, in contrast to the prices of cars, - the representatives of company assured.
The representatives of Severstal calculated that the share of metal-roll in the cost of car exceeds 4,5% and the price of metal-roll increasing will lead to the price increasing not more than by 1%. So, the price of rolled-metal of all suppliers should increase not less than by 70%, to increase the prices of cars by 3%, as AvtoVAZ declared, the metallurgists assured. Besides, Severstal reminded that the prices of for cold rolled-metal for AvtoVAZ in 2010 were lower than world prices by 29%.
But AvtoVAZ, in his turn, announced that it considers such calculations of another enterprises products cost are impolite. Severstal couldnt declare it, as they know that there are much more of metal in cars than 4,5%, - said the director of PR of AvtoVAZ, Igor Burenkov.
