Alcoa to Acquire RTI International Metals, Boosting Value-Add, Multi-Material Aerospace Portfolio

RTI will expand Alcoa’s advanced manufacturing and materials technologies. Its high-velocity machining, forming, extruding and parts assembly operations will enable Alcoa to produce some of the largest, most complex aerospace components. Advanced titanium powder metallurgy and processing technology will enable cost-effective production of near net shape aerospace components, as well as medical devices and oil and gas products. RTI will expand Alcoa’s additive manufacturing capabilities, such as 3-D printing, to produce titanium, specialty metals and plastic parts for aerospace, medical and energy applications. RTI also grows Alcoa’s portfolio of cutting-edge materials, including titanium-aluminides, complementing Alcoa’s industry leadership in metallics. Titanium-aluminides are increasingly used to manufacture lightweight, aerodynamic jet engine parts for high-volume, next-generation jet engines.


The transaction, which has been approved by the Boards of Directors of both companies, remains subject to customary conditions and receipt of regulatory approvals and RTI shareholder approval. Alcoa and RTI expect to obtain all required regulatory clearances and RTI shareholder approval in order to close the transaction in three to six months.

Greenhill & Co. and Morgan Stanley are acting as financial advisors to Alcoa, and Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz is serving as legal counsel. Barclays is acting as the sole financial advisor to RTI, and Jones Day is serving as legal counsel.
