Alcoa, Egypt Aluminum to Study Egypt Venture

PITTSBURGH and CAIRO--June 29, 1998-- Alcoa, Egypt Aluminum Company (Egyptalum), and the government-owned Holding Company for Metallurgical Industries in Egypt announced today that they have signed a letter of intent to study the feasibility of Egyptalum and Alcoa forming a joint venture, or of Alcoa acquiring an ownership interest in Egyptalum's aluminum business. The first phase of the feasibility study on the appropriate business relationship between Egyptalum and Alcoa is expected to be completed in six months.

Egyptalum's aluminum business is comprised of a 180,000 metric-ton-per-year primary aluminum smelter and a rolling mill, both located at Aluminum City in Nag-Hammadi, Egypt.

Alcoa is the world's largest producer of aluminum and alumina and a major participant in all segments of the industry: mining, refining, smelting, fabricating and recycling. Alcoa has 187 operating locations in 28 countries.
