|Russian Aluminum would consider a merger with SUAL Group, the country's second-largest maker of the metal.|
"Nothing is decided and nothing is excluded," RusAl deputy chief executive Alexander Livshits said Wednesday when asked about a possible merger with Sual.
Interfax last month said SUAL owner Viktor Vekselberg was seeking a strategic investor and might be interested in a merger with RusAl, citing Vekselberg.
The two companies are equal partners in a $1.2 billion project in the Far North, Interfax said.
Vekselberg controls SUAL through his Renova holding, which also owns about one-eighth of TNK-BP.
