Oslo (2008-03-14): “Hydro has been through some major changes, and the biggest of them all took place in 2007. By processing natural resources in innovative and efficient ways, Hydro has helped to create more viable societies for more than a century. We will continue to do so as an aluminium company,” Hydro President and CEO Eivind Reiten says in the company’s annual reporting, published on Hydro’s internet site www.hydro.com on Friday.
“It’s no wonder the future looks so bright. The material we produce lasts forever. We have faith in the future and are confident our projects will bring us further,” Reiten says in his letter to shareholders.
Hydro’s main report for 2007 is the “Annual Report – 2007”, which includes detailed information about Hydro’s businesses, operational performance, financial performance, viability performance, corporate governance and financial statements. The report is available in English.
In addition, two reporting documents have been prepared specifically for distribution to shareholders: “Financial Statements and Board of Directors’ Report – 2007”, and “2007 – in brief”. The first report fulfils the Norwegian statutory requirements to annual reporting and contains the Board of Directors’ Report and Financial Statements, while the latter is a short summary of Hydro’s results and performance in 2007. These reports are available in both English and Norwegian.
Hydro’s main reporting on viability performance is included in the “Annual Report – 2007”, with additional details on www.hydro.com/annualreporting2007.
The full content of the three reports is presented at www.hydro.com/annualreporting2007, with supplementary information. Hard copies of all reports can be ordered from this website, and all parts of the reports can be downloaded and printed in PDF format, on demand.
Shareholders registered directly in the Norwegian Central Securities Depository (VPS) will automatically receive hard copies of “Financial Statements and Board of Directors’ Report – 2007" and “2007 – in brief”.
