Alcoa Inc. Analyst Notes

On March 28, 2014, Alcoa Inc. (Alcoa) announced that the Company will reduce its
smelting capacity in Brazil by 147,000 metric tons by the end of May 2014. The decision
for capacity reduction was taken in the light of smelters being uncompetitive due to
challenging global market conditions in primary aluminum and increase cost. As stated, the
new reduction will include the remaining 62,000 metric tons of capacity from the Pocos
smelter, resulting in a full curtailment of its three potlines. Another 85,000 metric tons
will be curtailed at Sao Luis. The reduction in capacity is part of the Company’s overall
goal of lowering its position on the world aluminum production cost curve to the 38th
percentile and the alumina cost curve to the 21st percentile, by 2016. Post the completion
of all announced curtailments and closures, Alcoa will have nearly 800,000 metric tons, or
21% of smelting capacity, offline. The full analyst notes on Alcoa Inc. are available to
