Quoting Management: “We are witnessing a modest improvement in general market conditions,” commented Michael Bless, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The pace of economic activity in China appears to have at least stabilized, with signs of accelerating growth becoming more evident. Though industrial activity in the Euro zone remains depressed, the risk of a sovereign or banking crisis has eased. In the U.S., our key markets remain generally strong, with encouraging conditions in important sectors such as transportation. In this global context, the aluminum price has traded with less volatility in a relatively narrow band and regional premiums, based upon a number of factors, remain robust. Despite this reasonably benign environment, we remain watchful over potential disruptions which could be caused by political processes in the U.S. and in Europe, and continue to manage the Company with appropriate caution.”
