USX Corporation announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, USX Capital LLC, has called for redemption on December 31, 2001 all of the then outstanding 8.75% Cumulative Monthly Income Preferred Shares, Series A (NYSE: XLC_p) ("MIPS"). On the redemption date, USX Capital LLC will pay $25.18 per share reflecting the redemption price of $25 per share, plus a cash payment for accrued but unpaid dividends through the redemption date.
