Postponement of Preliminary Determination

In accordance with section 735(a)(1) of the Act, the deadline for the final determination of this antidumping duty investigation will continue to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary determination, unless extended.
This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 733(c)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1).
