08:48 EDTAAAlcoa to pay $384M to settle SEC, DOJ bribery charges
The Securities and Exchange Commission charged Alcoa Inc. with violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FCPA, when its subsidiaries repeatedly paid bribes to government officials in Bahrain to maintain a key source of business. An SEC investigation found that more than $110M in corrupt payments were made to Bahraini officials with influence over contract negotiations between Alcoa and a major government-operated aluminum plant. Alcoa lacked sufficient internal controls to prevent and detect the bribes, which were improperly recorded in Alcoa’s books and records as legitimate commissions or sales to a distributor. Alcoa agreed to settle the SEC’s charges and a parallel criminal case announced by the U.S. Department of Justice by paying a total of $384M.

09:02 EDTAAAlcoa completes acquisition of RTI International
Alcoa (AA) announced that it has completed the acquisition of RTI International Metals (RTI). The merger, announced on March 9, became effective today. Under the terms of the merger agreement, each share of RTI common stock has been converted into the right to receive 2.8315 shares of Alcoa common stock, plus an amount of cash in lieu of fractional shares of Alcoa common stock. Alcoa expects RTI to contribute $1.2 billion in revenue in 2019, up from $794 million that RTI generated in 2014, with 65 percent of revenues supported by contracts over the next five years. RTI’s profitability is expected to reach 25 percent EBITDA margin in 2019. Contracts that underpin RTI’s growth include the recently announced contract with Airbus for finished titanium structural supply parts for the new A350-1000 aircraft program. Under the agreement, Alcoa will supply titanium parts for the fuselage, among other components. Alcoa expects global aerospace sales growth of 8 to 9 percent in 2015. Projections for 2016 and 2017 sales growth have nearly doubled to 8 and 13 percent, from 4 to 5 percent and 6 percent, respectively, showing the ongoing strength of the sector. Eighty percent of RTI’s revenues in 2014 were from the aerospace and defense industries. With RTI, Alcoa’s 2014 pro forma aerospace revenue increases by 13 percent to $5.6 billion. RTI is being integrated as a standalone business unit into Alcoa’s downstream Engineered Products and Solutions segment.
