Arconic Divests its Latin America Extrusions Business

December 8, 2017

Transaction includes Arconic locations in Utinga and Tubarão, Brazil

Arconic Inc. (NYSE: ARNC) today announced the divestiture of its Latin
America Extrusions (LAE) business, which operates primarily in Brazil.
The business is part of the Company’s Transportation and Construction
Solutions segment. Following customary regulatory and anti-trust
reviews, the ownership of LAE will be transferred to a subsidiary of
Hydro Extruded Solutions AS. The deal is expected to close in the first
half of 2018.

The divestiture is part of Arconic’s continued drive to streamline its
business portfolio, reduce complexity and further focus on its
higher-margin products and continuous profitable growth.

Under the terms of the agreement, Arconic will receive approximately $10
million in cash for the LAE business, subject to working capital and
other adjustments. As a result of the transaction, Arconic will
recognize a restructuring-related charge representing the loss on sale
of approximately $40 million after-tax, or $0.08 per diluted share, in
the fourth quarter of 2017, as referenced in the Company’s third quarter
Form 10-Q filing. The charge primarily relates to the non-cash
impairment of the net book value of the business. The charge is a
special item and will not impact adjusted earnings per share.
