Item 8.01. Other Events.

The financial information included as exhibit 99 to this Current Report on Form 8-K updates certain portions of the Annual Report on Form 10-K for Alcoa Inc. (“Alcoa”) for the year ended December 31, 2007 (the “Report”) to reflect the following changes to Alcoa’s reportable segments.

In the first quarter of 2008, management approved a realignment of Alcoa’s reportable segments to better reflect the core businesses in which Alcoa operates and how it is managed. This realignment consisted of eliminating the Extruded and End Products segment, and realigning its component businesses as follows: the building and construction systems business is reported in the Engineered Products and Solutions segment; the hard alloy extrusions business and the Russian extrusions business are reported in the Flat-Rolled Products segment; and the remaining segment components, consisting primarily of the equity investment/income of Alcoa’s interest in the Sapa AB joint venture, and the Latin American extrusions business, are reported in Corporate. Additionally, the Russian forgings business was moved from the Engineered Products and Solutions segment to the Flat-Rolled Products segment, where all Russian operations are now reported. Also, the Engineered Solutions segment was renamed the Engineered Products and Solutions segment.

No attempt has been made to update other matters in the Report. The segment realignment had no effect on Alcoa’s reported net income in the Report.

The attached information should be read together with Alcoa’s Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended March 31, 2008 and June 30, 2008.
