CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

To our Stockholders:

 

It is my pleasure to invite you to the 2010 Annual Meeting of Stockholders of AK Steel Holding Corporation.  The meeting will be held at 1:30 p.m. Central Daylight Saving Time on Thursday, May 27, 2010 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Chicago, located at 160 E. Pearson Street, Chicago, Illinois 60611.

 

Attendance at the Annual Meeting is limited to stockholders of record as of the close of business on March 29, 2010, or their duly appointed proxies, and to guests of management.  If you cannot attend the meeting in person, I urge you to participate by voting your proxy in one of the methods explained in the Notice that you received in the mail.  You may also listen to the Annual Meeting via the Internet.  To listen to the live webcast, log on at http://www.aksteel.com and select the link on the homepage for the webcast of the 2010 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.  The webcast will begin at 1:30 p.m. and will remain on the Company’s website for one year.  Please note that you cannot record your vote on this website.

 

Your vote is important, and the management of AK Steel appreciates your cooperation in directing proxies to vote at the meeting.

 

We have once again elected this year to furnish proxy materials to our stockholders on the Internet.  We believe this allows us to provide our stockholders with the information they need, while lowering the costs of delivery and reducing the environmental impact of our Annual Meeting.  Please review the instructions with respect to each of your voting options as described in the Proxy Statement and the Notice.

 

Your continuing interest in our company is greatly appreciated.  I look forward to seeing you at the Annual Meeting.



 

Sincerely,

 

 

 

/s/ James L. Wainscott
