08:04 EDTAAAlcoa invests $40M in Itapissuma, Brazil, rolling mill
Alcoa announced a $40M in its Itapissuma, Brazil, rolling mill to increase production of specialty foils for aseptic and flexible packages. Demand for specialty packaging in Brazil is expected to rise seven percent annually over the next three years due to population growth and consumer preference. All additional capacity has been fully committed. The expansion is expected to add approximately 50 jobs at the plant following ramp-up of production. Initial work for the expansion is underway and commissioning is expected to begin in 2016. This investment is part of Alcoa’s ongoing portfolio transformation to build out its value-added mid- and downstream businesses to capture profitable growth.

08:31 EDTAAAlcoa to close Portovesme smelter in Italy
Alcoa announced that it intends to permanently close its Portovesme primary aluminum smelter, which has been curtailed since November 2012. The closure will reduce Alcoa’s global smelting capacity by 150,000 metric tons to 3.6 million metric tons per year. The Portovesme smelter was curtailed in 2012 because it was one of the highest cost smelters in the Alcoa system and had limited prospects for becoming competitive. “The fundamental reasons that made the Portovesme smelter uncompetitive unfortunately have not changed,” said Bob Wilt, President, Alcoa Global Primary Products. “We will continue to meet the commitments made to our employees and our stakeholders, acting in good faith as we have always done.” As committed to the government and unions, Alcoa has provided financial social support, along with outplacement and re-employment services for employees. The closure is aligned with Alcoa’s strategy to create a globally competitive commodity business and lower its position on the world aluminum production cost curve to the 38th percentile by 2016. Total restructuring-related charges for third quarter 2014 as a result of the closure are expected to be between $170M-$180M after-tax, or between 14c-15c per share, of which approximately 60% is non-cash.
