strategies for Hydro, such as planned expansions, investments or other projects,

Although we believe that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking
statements are reasonable, these forward-looking statements are based on a
number of assumptions and forecasts that, by their nature, involve risk and
uncertainty. Various factors could cause our actual results to differ materially
from those projected in a forward-looking statement or affect the extent to
which a particular projection is realized. Factors that could cause these
differences include, but are not limited to: our continued ability to reposition
and restructure our upstream and downstream aluminium business; changes in
availability and cost of energy and raw materials; global supply and demand for
aluminium and aluminium products; world economic growth, including rates of
inflation and industrial production; changes in the relative value of currencies
and the value of commodity contracts; trends in Hydro's key markets and
competition; and legislative, regulatory and political factors.
No assurance can be given that such expectations will prove to have been
correct. Hydro disclaims any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking
statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
