Update on cyber attack April 1

Hydro has experienced good progress over the weekend and continues to approach normal operations after the cyber attack. Our focus so far has been technical recovery. This week we are moving on to business and operation recovery.

Hydro’s primary objective remains to restart operations in a safe and secure manner, gradually progressing production back to normal, and limiting any further impact on customers, suppliers and other partners.

Hydro is continuing the work to ensure relevant supporting IT-functions are operational, with interim workaround solutions being established when needed and possible.

Update on operational status in the business areas:

Energy: Production running as normal

Bauxite & Alumina: Production running as normal

Primary Metal: Production running as normal, with higher degree of manual operation

Rolled Products: Production running as normal, with higher degree of manual operation

Extruded Solutions: Close to normal operations but still a lot of workarounds and local variations from plant to plant. Production in the three business units Extrusion Europe, Extrusion North America and Precision Tubing currently running at an average output of 85 percent. In the Building Systems unit operations are currently at around 60 percent, up from 20 percent on Wednesday last week.
