Norsk Hydro: Reporting of Reclassified Historical Financial Information 
OSLO, NORWAY -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 --  Norsk Hydro ASA is
reporting reclassified historical financial information (unaudited)
due to the announced extruded products joint venture with Orkla ASA.
The reclassified financials are released to provide further details
on the effects of reclassifying Extruded Products as discontinued
operations ahead of Hydro's forth quarter results 2012 to be released
on February 12, 2013. 
Certain statements included within this announcement contain
forward-looking information, including, without limitation, those
relating to (a) forecasts, projections and estimates, (b) statements
of management's plans, objectives and strategies for Hydro, such as
planned expansions, investments or other projects, (c) targeted
production volumes and costs, capacities or rates, start-up costs,
cost reductions and profit objectives, (d) various expectations about
future developments in Hydro's markets, particularly prices, supply
and demand and competition, (e) results of operations, (f) margins,
(g) growth rates, (h) risk management, as well as (i) statements
preceded by "expected", "scheduled", "targeted", "planned",
"proposed", "intended" or similar statements. 
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. 
This information is subject of the disclosure requirements pursuant
to section
5-12 of the Norwegian Securities Trading Act.
