Enclosure: Additional information as filed with the French Commission de
           operations de bourse on July 22, 2003, in connection with its
           Document de Reference (French Annual Report).

On July 22, 2003, Pechiney filed the following additional information with the
French Commission des operations de bourse in connection with its Document de
Reference (i.e., French Annual Report) for the year ended December 31, 2002:

Additional information concerning the business of the Group (Risk Factors -
Other Risks - Insurance) (Page 61 of the Document de Reference)

Insurance for damage at our industrial facilities and resulting economic losses
takes the form of "all risks excluding" coverage. The overall maximum coverage
is greater than the maximum possible claim identified for the Group, taking into
account the interdependency which exists between the Group's industrial
facilities, i.e., (euro) 400 million per claim. Like all insurance policies, the
coverage is subject to certain exclusions or standard limitations, in particular
regarding certain damages due to natural causes or pollution. With regard to
civil and product liability coverage (including aeronautics and aerospace
products), the maximum coverage is above (euro) 150 million.

For reasons related to the market and cost of insurance, the coverage is subject
to exclusions or sub-limitations, which are standard among comparable companies,
such as damage due to gradual pollution or performance defects. These
sub-limitations may vary according to geographic location.

For reasons pertaining to the complexity of the contractual structure,
confidentiality and the Group's exposure, it is not possible to disclose a more
detailed breakdown of the costs and the level of coverage of each of the risks
to which the Group is exposed.

The tightening of conditions in the insurance market has caused the Group to
take on certain restrictions on coverage as of 2003.

Pechiney purchases the vast majority of its insurance policies for its global
activities on a centralized basis. In 2002, the cost of these insurance policies
amounted to (euro) 36 million. This amount does not include the cost of life or
medical insurance for employees of the Group, since these types of insurance are
purchased on a country-by-country basis in light of local practices.

Additional information relating to the consolidated financial statements (Note
20 - Commitments and Contingent Liabilities - Guarantees Provided in the Usual
Course of Business) (Page 175 of the Document de Reference)

The following table shows, as of December 31, 2002, the Group's loans and lines
of credit for a term exceeding one year, drawn or partially drawn, which are
subject to early redemption requirements if the Group fails to maintain certain
levels of consolidated net worth or exceeds certain indebtedness ratios:
