Other Events.

Offering of Senior Notes

On March 8, 2021, Alcoa Corporation (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing a proposed offering (the “Offering”) of senior notes (the “New Notes”) by Alcoa Nederland Holding B.V. (the “Issuer”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. The Issuer intends to use the net proceeds of the issuance of the New Notes, together with cash on hand, to contribute approximately $500 million to affiliate U.S. defined benefit pension plans applicable to salaried and hourly employees and to redeem in full the outstanding 6.75% Senior Notes due 2024 (the “2024 Notes”), and pay transaction-related fees and expenses. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1, and is incorporated by reference into this Item 8.01.

The Issuer intends to issue a conditional notice of redemption to redeem all $750 million aggregate principal amount outstanding of its 2024 Notes. The 2024 Notes would be redeemed on the 30th day following the date of the conditional notice of redemption (the “Redemption Date”) at a redemption price equal to 103.375% of the principal amount of the 2024 Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest to but not including the Redemption Date. The Issuer’s obligation to redeem the 2024 Notes would be conditioned upon the consummation, on or prior to the Redemption Date, of the Offering on terms and conditions that are satisfactory to the Issuer (the “Condition”). In the Issuer’s discretion, the Redemption Date may be delayed until such time as the Condition has been satisfied (or waived by the Issuer in its sole discretion).
