Thyssenkrupp boards working hard to get Tata Steel deal-staff memo

Thyssenkrupp needs to quickly clinch a deal for a planned European steel joint venture with Tata Steel, its chief executive said in an internal letter, adding this was necessary to determine the group’s long-term strategy. "Therefore we are in close consultations with the supervisory board," Heinrich Hiesinger wrote in a staff note dated June 14, a day after the group’s supervisory board met to discuss the deal.
