ThyssenKrupp may buy other assets

ThyssenKrupp AG, after bowing out of the bidding for Canadian steel producer Dofasco Inc., may seek to acquire other companies in North America to expand outside Europe, analysts said. ThyssenKrupp said it will focus on its USD 2 billion plant in Brazil, which it plans to build by 2008 to supply its mills in Europe and North America with low-cost steel slabs.
