The rationale for the cobalt alloy grade, in-whs Rotterdam, $ per lb has been corrected to state that the assessed range moved up to $25.60-26.00 per lb, after it was incorrectly stated to have moved up to $25.60-26.10 per lb.

A reference to the high end moving up to $26.10 per lb has been removed and replaced with a note to say the high held at $26 per lb.

The rationale has also been corrected to state that the top end was pegged to an offer and assessments at the level, after being incorrectly stated to be pegged to offers and nearby assessments.

The pricing rationale for cobalt standard grade, in-whs Rotterdam, $ per lb has been corrected to remove a reference to the high end moving up to $26 per lb and replaced with a note to say the high held at $26 per lb.

The rationale has also been updated to note that the top end of the range is pegged to offers and assessments at $26 per lb, after it was incorrectly reported that the top end was pegged to one offer at and near that level.

Fastmarkets' rationale database has been updated to reflect these changes.

There is no change to the final assessments, which remain as originally published and intended at $25.60-26.00 per lb for cobalt alloy grade, in-whs Rotterdam and $25.75-26.00 per lb for cobalt standard grade, in-whs Rotterdam on September 30.
