Alcoa Corp Fourth Quarter 2018 Earnings Release

Alumina Limited (ASX: AWC) notes Alcoa Corp ‘s (“Alcoa”) quarterly earnings release. To assist readers in understanding relevant market, operational and commercial matters of the AWAC joint venture, selected information from the Alcoa Bauxite and Alumina Segments, AWAC joint venture and Alumina Limited plus other market data is attached.

Alumina Limited’s CEO , Mike Ferraro, welcomed another strong quarter for the Bauxite and Alumina segments which include most of the AWAC operations. ” A $9/t drop in the cost of alumina production and higher alumina shipments during the quarter contributed to an Adjusted EBITDA for the Alumina Segment of $683 million. AWAC has continued to make significant distributions to the Company.

With the alumina market remaining tight, current alumina price levels of around $385/t continue to underpin robust positive cash flows for AWAC. “

– AWAC Mining Business (mbdt)

Alumina Cost and Price:

– Cash Cost ($/t production)

– Realised Price ($/t shipments)

▪ Refining: Excludes equity share of Ma’aden

▪ Mining: Includes wholly owned mines plus equity share of CBG and MRN
