14:35 EDTAAAlcoa to curtail 443,000 mtpy of alumina refining capacity at Suralco
Lightweight metals leader Alcoa announced that it plans to curtail 443,000 metric tons per year of alumina refining capacity at Suralco in Suriname. In addition, the company and the Government of Suriname have agreed to pursue a transaction for a Government-owned entity to acquire the Suralco operations. The curtailment and potential transaction are in line with Alcoa’s recent announcement to review upstream capacity for possible curtailment or divestiture and the company’s strategic goal to create a globally competitive commodity business. The curtailment, which represents one digester, is expected to be complete by April 30. Both parties now intend to pursue a transaction where a Government-owned entity would acquire Suralco, including the mining, refining and Afobaka hydroelectric operations. Following the appropriate due diligence, the parties are targeting to reach agreement on the proposed transaction by July 1. The company will work closely with unions and employees to reduce the impact of the curtailment on affected employees by offering fair severance packages. The Paranam refinery and related mining operations employ approximately 700 people, in addition to contracted personnel. The net financial impact associated with the curtailment is not expected to be material to the company’s earnings.
