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.

05:47 EDTAAAlcoa to acquire TITAL, terms not disclosed
Alcoa announced plans to further expand its global aerospace business through a definitive agreement to acquire privately held TITAL. The acquisition will strengthen Alcoa’s global position to capture increasing demand for advanced jet engine components made of titanium. This transaction will further position Alcoa to capitalize on strong growth in the commercial aerospace sector. Alcoa projects a compounded annual commercial jet growth rate of 7% through 2019 and sees a current 9-year production order book at 2013 delivery rates. Almost 70% of TITAL’s revenues are expected to come from commercial aerospace sales in 2019. In 2013, the company generated revenues of approximately $96M, more than half of which came from titanium products. The acquisition will establish titanium casting capabilities in Europe for Alcoa, while expanding its aluminum casting capacity. TITAL employs more than 650 people, primarily in Bestwig, Germany. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.
