This Amendment No. 7 amends and supplements the items indicated below of the statement on Schedule 13D (the “Schedule 13D”) filed jointly on March 26, 2007 by Arcelor S.A., a Luxembourg corporation, and Mittal Steel Company N.V., a Netherlands corporation, with respect to shares of common stock, $0.00067 par value per share (“Common Stock”), of Noble International, Ltd. (the “Company”) and amended on August 31, 2007, March 4, 2008, March 21, 2008, April 7, 2008, February 13, 2009 and May 8, 2009. Unless otherwise defined herein, all capitalized terms shall have the meanings assigned to them in the Schedule 13D.


Item 2. Identity and Background

This item is amended to reflect the following changes to information previously reported.

ArcelorMittal S.A., the Luxembourg corporation formerly named Arcelor S.A. (“ArcelorMittal” or the “Reporting Person”), is filing this Amendment No. 7 to the Schedule 13D.

Mr. Michel Marti, Mr. Sergio Silva de Freitas, Mr. Jean-Pierre Hansen and Mr. Ignacio Fernández Toxo are no longer members of the board of directors of ArcelorMittal.


Item 4. Purpose of Transaction

As previously reported, the transactions pursuant to which the Reporting Person acquired securities of the Company beginning in 2007 were in furtherance of a strategic business combination whereby ArcelorMittal combined its European laser-welded blanks operations with the business of the Company in exchange for consideration including cash, certain promissory notes, the assumption of certain financial obligations and shares of Common Stock. Subsequently, on April 15, 2009, the Company commenced a voluntary proceeding under chapter 11 of Title 11 of the United States Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”) in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Michigan (the “Bankruptcy Court”). In furtherance of its restructuring, the Company sought a buyer for its European business, consisting of the shares of Noble European Holdings B.V., a private limited liability company organized under the laws of the Netherlands (“Noble BV”), together with the direct and indirect holdings and assets of Noble BV (the “Acquired Assets”).

On May 8, 2009, ArcelorMittal and the Company entered into a Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) pursuant to which ArcelorMittal agreed to acquire the Acquired Assets, subject to the terms and conditions of the Purchase Agreement, in a sale pursuant to Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code. On May 29, 2009, the Bankruptcy Court issued an order approving the Purchase Agreement and the Company’s sale of the Acquired Assets to ArcelorMittal pursuant to the Purchase Agreement.

On July 17, 2009, ArcelorMittal, through one of its subsidiaries, and the Company closed the acquisition of the Acquired Assets (the “Closing”) pursuant to the Purchase Agreement.

At the Closing, as required by the Purchase Agreement, the Company and ArcelorMittal executed and delivered a mutual general release (the “Mutual Release”) of all claims that such party and its affiliates had against the other party except for claims (a) under the Purchase Agreement, (b) relating to the delivery of goods and performance of services in the ordinary course of business, or (c) arising after the date of the Mutual Release. In addition, the Mutual Release did not release ArcelorMittal’s and its affiliates’ claims against the Company with respect to (i) subordinated debt owed to ArcelorMittal and its affiliate by the Company in the original principal amount of $65 million or (ii) amounts owed to Noble BV by the Company with respect to a certain forward foreign exchange transaction.

As a result of the Mutual Release, ArcelorMittal’s rights and obligations under the Standstill and Stockholder Agreement and the Registration Rights Agreement, both dated August 31, 2007, and described in Item 6 of Amendment No. 1 to this Schedule 13D, have been released and discharged.
