Aluminum Giant Alcoa to Split Into Two Companies 铝合金巨头美国铝业公司将进行分割


Alcoa Inc., Pittsburgh, Pa., announced it would split


into two publicly traded companies, splitting the firm’s casting and fabrication units from operations in raw aluminum. Te raw materials business—including bauxite mining, alumina refining and aluminum production—will retain the Alcoa name. Te second company will be the company’s “value-added business,” including its met- alcasting operations. “We’ve worked very hard on changing the setup of both of these businesses,” said Klaus Kleinfeld, CEO, Alcoa. “All of this has led to a structure of both firms to really be competitive and be able to run on their own.” Mr. Kleinfeld will become CEO of the value-add


company and act as chairman for both companies. Ac- cording to the Wall Street Journal, the value-added company would have had $14.5 billion in revenue in the year ended June 30, while the raw metals division would have had revenue of $13.2 billion. Alcoa’s aerospace and automotive divisions have been


driving profit recently as demand for aluminum com- ponents has increased. Alcoa has benefited from Ford Motor Co. and other major OEMs buying aluminum parts as lightweight alternatives to comply with new fuel- efficiency regulations. Te deal, which is expected to be tax-free for share-


holders, is expected to close in the second half of 2016. Alcoa shareholders will own all outstanding shares of both companies. 

“我们已经努力地调整了两个公司业务的设置,”美 国铝业公司首席执行官Klaus Kleinfeld说:“这一切使 两个公司的结构具有竞争优势,并且可以独立运营。” Kleinfeld先生将担任“增值业务”公司的首席执行 官,并且是两家公司的董事长。据《华尔街日报》报 道,该增值业务公司截止今年6月30日的营业额将达 145亿美元,而原材料公司的收入将达到132亿美元。 最近,随着铝合金铸件的需求增加,美国铝业公司的 航空航天和汽车部门已提高了利润。为了遵守新的能效 规定,福特汽车公司和其它主要原始设备制造商购买铝 合金部件作为轻量化的选择,美国铝业公司从中获益。 该笔交易预计将对股东免税,并且预计将于2016年 下半年结束。美国铝业公司的股东将持有两家公司所有 已发行的股票。 
