Dongbu Steel reached an agreement with creditors to undergo a debt workout program. Creditors tried to support Dongbu Steel with a variety of measures such as 600 billion won in support. The creditors then attempted to sell Dongbu Steel, but had trouble finding bidders. Dongbu Steel then sold off an electric furnace used for steel production. In May 2016, Dongbu Steel was taken off sale.
