Financial report summary

  • The aluminum industry and aluminum end-use markets are highly cyclical and are influenced by several factors, including global economic conditions.
  • We could be materially adversely affected by declines in aluminum, alumina, and bauxite prices, including global, regional and product-specific prices.
  • Market-driven balancing of global aluminum supply and demand may be disrupted by non-market forces.
  • Our profitability could be adversely affected by increases in the cost of raw materials, or by significant lag effects of decreases in commodity, LME-linked or production costs.
  • We have incurred, and may incur in the future, significant costs associated with our strategy to be a lower cost, competitive, sustainable, and integrated aluminum production business by optimizing our portfolio and disposing of non-core assets, and we may not be able to realize the anticipated benefits from announced plans, programs, initiatives and capital investments.
  • Joint ventures, other strategic alliances, and strategic business transactions may not achieve intended results. We may experience operational challenges in integrating or segregating assets for such a venture or transaction, and such a venture or transaction could increase the number of our outstanding shares or amount of outstanding debt and affect our financial position.
  • The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has adversely affected, and in the future could adversely affect, the Company’s business, financial condition, or results of operations.
  • Our global operations expose us to risks related to economic, political, and social conditions, including the impact of trade policies and adverse industry publicity, which may negatively impact our business.
  • Weakness in global economic conditions or in any of the industries or geographic regions in which we or our customers operate, and the cyclical nature of our customers’ businesses, could adversely impact our revenues and profitability by reducing demand and margins.
  • We are exposed to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates and interest rates, as well as inflation and other economic factors in the countries in which we operate.
  • Unanticipated changes in tax laws or exposure to additional tax liabilities could affect our future profitability.
  • We may be exposed to significant legal proceedings, investigations or changes in foreign and/or U.S. federal, state, or local laws, regulations or policies.
  • We are subject to a broad range of health, safety and environmental laws, regulations and other requirements in the jurisdictions in which we operate that may expose us to substantial claims, costs, and liabilities.
  • Our operations include impoundment structures, which could impact the environment or cause exposure to hazardous substances or other damage, which could result in material liabilities to us.
  • Climate change, climate change legislation or regulations, extreme weather conditions, and greenhouse gas effects may adversely impact our operations and markets.
  • We face significant competition, which may have an adverse effect on profitability.
  • Our business and growth prospects may be negatively impacted by limits on our ability to fund capital expenditures.
  • Deterioration in our credit profile or increases in interest rates could increase our costs of borrowing money and limit our access to the capital markets and commercial credit.
  • Our indebtedness restricts our current and future operations, which could adversely affect our ability to respond to changes in our business and manage our operations.
  • Our failure to comply with the agreements relating to our outstanding indebtedness, including due to events beyond our control, could result in an event of default that could materially and adversely affect our business, financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.
  • Cyber attacks, security breaches, system failures, or other cyber incidents may threaten the integrity of our information technology infrastructure and other sensitive business information, disrupt our operations and business processes, expose us to potential liability, and result in reputational harm and other negative consequences that could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.
  • Union disputes and other employee relations issues could adversely affect our business, financial condition, or results of operations.
  • An adverse decline in the liability discount rate, lower-than-expected investment return on pension assets and other factors could affect our business, financial condition, results of operations or amount of pension funding contributions in future periods.
