April 13, 2007 - Innovest Strategic Value Advisors has confirmed its Intangible Value Assessment of Alcoa Inc. based on the company’s relative performance of social, environmental, and strategic governance (ESG) issues relative to sector peers.

Innovest recently released updated Intangible Value Assessments for the 58 companies in the metal and mining sector. For the spring 2007 rating cycle, Alcoa Inc. received a rating of AAA, indicating best practice in the sector/average performance relative to sector peers/below average performance relative to sector peers.

A research and ratings report for Alcoa is available for purchase for USD $195. Additional company research and ratings reports from this and other industries are also available at www.csrwire.com/reports/independent.

Peter Wilkes, Managing Director at Innovest stated, "Innovest's ratings are an indicator of a company's performance on intangible value drivers and management quality. This information is used to support an investor’s existing financial knowledge of a company. It is widely accepted among investors that extra-financial information is now required to get a full understanding of a company’s prospects."

By assessing differentials typically not identified by traditional securities analysis, Innovest's IVA ratings uncover hidden risks and value potential for investors. Ratings range from AAA (best) to CCC (worst). Scores on sub factors range from 10 (best) to 0 (worst).

Some of the areas of analysis for companies include:

Supply Chain
