Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On May 17, 2018, Alcoa Nederland Holding B.V. (the “Issuer”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Alcoa Corporation (the “Company”), completed an offering of $500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 6.125% senior notes due 2028 (the “notes”). The notes were issued pursuant to an indenture dated as of May 17, 2018 (the “Indenture”) among (i) the Issuer, (ii) the Company, (iii) certain subsidiaries of the Company, and (iv) The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, National Association, as trustee (the “Trustee”). The notes are guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by the Company and its subsidiaries that are party to the Indenture.

The Indenture contains certain restrictive covenants that limit the Issuer’s and each guarantor’s ability to, among other things, create liens on certain assets; consolidate, merge, sell or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of their assets; take any actions that would reduce the Company’s ownership of AWAC (as defined in the Indenture) below an agreed level; and enter into certain sale and leaseback transactions. These covenants are subject to a number of limitations and exceptions. The Indenture also contains customary events of default.

The notes may be redeemed at the Issuer’s option, in whole or in part, at any time and from time to time on and after May 15, 2023, at the applicable redemption prices set forth in the Indenture. At any time prior to such dates, the Issuer will be entitled at its option to redeem all, but not less than all, of the notes at a “make-whole” redemption price set forth in the Indenture. Additionally, at any time prior to May 15, 2021, the Issuer may, on one or more occasions, redeem up to 40% of the aggregate principal amount of the notes at the applicable redemption prices set forth in the Indenture with the net cash proceeds of certain equity offerings. The notes may also be redeemed at the option of the Issuer at any time in connection with certain changes in withholding taxes. If a change of control repurchase event occurs, each holder will have the right to require that the Issuer repurchase the notes at a purchase price in cash equal to 101% of the principal amount thereof on the date of purchase, plus accrued and unpaid interest.

The Issuer intends to use the net proceeds of the issuance of the notes being offered for general corporate purposes, including to make mandatory or discretionary contributions to the Company’s U.S. pension and other postretirement benefit plans.

The foregoing description of the Indenture is not complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by reference to, the full text of the Indenture, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 4.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.


Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

The information set forth under Item 1.01 above is incorporated herein by reference.


Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

On May 17, 2018, the Company issued a press release announcing the closing of the previously announced offering of senior notes by the Issuer. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1, and is incorporated by reference into this Item 7.01.

The information in Item 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is being furnished, not filed, in accordance with the provisions of General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K. The furnishing of this information in Item 7.01 of Form 8-K will not be deemed an admission that such information is material information that is not otherwise publicly available.


Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.

(d) Exhibits.


4.1    Indenture, dated May  17, 2018, among Alcoa Nederland Holding B.V., Alcoa Corporation, certain subsidiaries of Alcoa Corporation, and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, National Association, as trustee
