ASX Announcement 12 July 2016

Alcoa Second Quarter Earnings Release

Alumina Limited (ASX: AWC) notes Alcoa's quarterly earnings release and attaches it for reference. To assist readers in understanding relevant market, operational and commercial matters of the AWAC joint venture, selected information from the Alcoa alumina segment results and other market data are also attached.

Alumina Limited's CEO, Peter Wasow, commented, "Second quarter margins benefitted from higher API prices and further productivity gains as well as the closure of higher cost capacity. A further $60 million of third party bauxite sales were completed during the quarter in line with the growing importance of the mining segment. These factors resulted in continuing strong cash distributions from the AWAC business."

AWAC's production of alumina was unchanged from the previous quarter at 3.2 million tonnes reflecting the impact of announced curtailments offset by higher production at Sao Luis, Kwinana and San Ciprian.

Alumina Limited received $34.3 million of dividends, distributions and capital returns from AWAC in the quarter (making $83.7 million for the first half). The Company made no capital contributions to AWAC in the same period.

Alumina Limited's net debt was approximately $80 million at the end of June 2016.

About AWAC & Alcoa's Earnings Release

Alumina Limited owns 40% of each of the AWAC entities, which form a part of the Alcoa alumina business segment. The Alcoa primary metals business segment includes the AWAC Point Henry smelting (closed 1 August 2014), Portland smelting and Anglesea power station operations (closed 31 August 2015). Therefore, the AWAC results cannot be directly inferred from the Alcoa earnings release. Further, unlike Alumina Limited, Alcoa reports under US GAAP. All figures displayed are in US dollars unless otherwise shown.
