Alcoa recently announced income from continuing operations for the first quarter 2005 of $273 million, or $0.31 per diluted share. Net income for the quarter was $260 million, or $0.30. Both first quarter 2005 income measures include negative impacts totaling $0.09 per share for: the tax impact on Alcoa's sale of its Elkem investment ($39 million after tax); restructuring charges ($25 million after tax); and costs of integrating the recently acquired Russian business ($12 million after tax). "Underlying business performance improved in the quarter as we captured the benefits of higher metal prices and a stronger economy in North America," said Alcoa Chairman and CEO Alain Belda. "We were able to regain traction on the cost initiative, overcoming cost inflation increases, to deliver savings to the bottom line."
