ANNUAL INFORMATION FORM
The Registrants Annual Information Form for the year ended December 31, 2015 is attached hereto as Exhibit 1 (the Annual Information Form).
AUDITED ANNUAL FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND MANAGEMENTS DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS
The Registrants Annual Report to Shareholders for the year ended December 31, 2015 (the Annual Shareholders Report) was previously filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the Commission) as Exhibit 99.1 to the Registrants Report on Form 6-K dated March 28, 2016. For the Registrants consolidated audited annual financial statements, including the report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm Deloitte LLP for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014 relating to such financial statements, see pages 27 to 61 and pages 25 and 26, respectively, of the Annual Shareholders Report. For the Registrants Managements Discussion and Analysis of Results of Operations and Financial Position, see pages 1 to 24 of the Annual Shareholders Report.
Notwithstanding any reference to the Registrants website on the World Wide Web in the Annual Information Form or in the documents attached or incorporated as exhibits hereto, the information contained in the Registrants website, or any other site on the World Wide Web referred to in the Registrants website, is not a part of this annual report on Form 40-F and, therefore, is not filed with the Commission.
The Registrant has made in the documents filed as part of this annual report on Form 40-F, and from time to time may otherwise make forward-looking statements, within the meaning of Section 21E of the Exchange Act and Section 27A of the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, and related assumptions concerning its operations, economic performance and financial matters. Actual results or events could differ materially from those set forth in, or implied by, the forward-looking statements and the related assumptions due to a variety of factors. Reference is made to the section entitled Forward-Looking Statements on page i of the Annual Information Form for a discussion of such factors.
CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
The Registrants Chief Executive Officer and its Executive Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer are responsible for establishing and maintaining the Registrants disclosure controls and procedures (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act) and internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) of the Exchange Act).
Disclosure Controls and Procedures
The Registrant maintains disclosure controls and procedures designed to provide reasonable, but not absolute, assurance that material information required to be disclosed in reports under the Exchange Act is communicated in a timely manner to senior management to enable them to make timely decisions regarding public disclosure of such information. The Registrant has conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of its disclosure controls and procedures as of December 31, 2015 under the supervision, and with the participation of, its Chief Executive Officer and its Executive Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer. Based on this evaluation, the Registrants Chief Executive Officer and its Executive Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that the Registrants disclosure controls and procedures are effective in providing reasonable assurance that material information relating to it (including all consolidated subsidiaries) is made known to them and information required to be disclosed by the Registrant is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Commissions rules and forms.
Internal Controls Over Financial Reporting
Management of the Registrant is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting for the Registrant. Such management has used the Internal Control Integrated Framework (2013) issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission to evaluate the effectiveness of the Registrants internal control over financial reporting. Internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable, but not absolute, assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting
and preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Due to its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements on a timely basis. Additionally, projections of any evaluation of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting to future periods are subject to the risk that the controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate. The Registrants Chief Executive Officer and its Executive Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer have assessed the effectiveness of the Registrants internal control over financial reporting and have concluded that, as at December 31, 2015, such internal control over financial reporting is effective and that there were no material weaknesses in the Registrants internal control over financial reporting. Deloitte LLP, who audited the Registrants consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2015, also issued a report on internal controls under the auditing standards of the Public Companies Accounting Oversight Board (United States). This report is located on page 26 of the Annual Shareholders Report.
Changes in Internal Controls Over Financial Reporting
There have been no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting that occurred during 2015 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
AUDIT COMMITTEE MEMBERS AND AUDIT COMMITTEE FINANCIAL EXPERT
The Registrant has a separately designated standing audit committee of its Board of Directors (the Audit Committee), which is currently comprised of the following members of the Registrants Board of Directors: Lawrence D. Worrall (Chair), Scott B. Bonham, Peter G. Bowie and Dr. Kurt J. Lauk.
The Registrants Board of Directors has determined that each of Mr. Worrall, the Chair of the Audit Committee, and Messrs. Bonham, Bowie and Lauk, is an audit committee financial expert and that each member of the Audit Committee is independent and financially literate, as such terms are defined in the listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange and Exchange Act Rule 10A-3.
CODE OF ETHICS
The Registrant has adopted a code of ethics that applies to all of its employees, including its Chief Executive Officer, its Executive Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer, its Controller and other persons performing similar functions. The text of such code of ethics is contained in the Registrants Code of Conduct and Ethics, which is posted on the Corporate Governance section of the Registrants website at www.magna.com.
As a foreign private issuer listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), the Registrant is required to disclose the significant ways in which its corporate governance practices differ from those to be followed by U.S. domestic issuers under the NYSE listing standards. The Registrant has disclosed on its website (www.magna.com) a Statement of Significant Corporate Governance Differences (NYSE), which discloses such differences.
PRINCIPAL ACCOUNTANT FEES AND SERVICES
The tables below show the fees for each of the last two fiscal years for professional services rendered by our principal accountant, Deloitte LLP for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014.
|Fiscal 2015||Fiscal 2014|
|Fees||% of Total||Fees||% of Total|
All Other Fees
Services provided by an external auditor fall into one of the following categories:
The services comprising the Audit Fees category for each of the last two fiscal years were performed by the Auditor to comply with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (PCAOB), including integrated audit of the consolidated financial statements, quarterly reviews and statutory audits of foreign subsidiaries. In some cases, fees in this category may include an appropriate allocation of fees for tax services or accounting consultations, to the extent such services were necessary to comply with the standards of the PCAOB. This category includes fees incurred in connection with the audit of our internal controls and the Auditors opinion on Managements assessment of our internal control over financial reporting for purposes of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.
The services comprising the Audit-Related Fees category for these two fiscal years consisted of fees paid in respect of assurance and related services, including such things as due diligence relating to mergers and acquisitions, accounting consultations and audits in connection with acquisitions, attest services that are not required by statute or regulation and consultation concerning financial accounting and reporting standards. Audit-related services actually provided by the Auditor in each of fiscal 2015 and fiscal 2014 related to (a) assurance services and procedures related to the audit of carve-out financial statements for Magnas interiors business, (b) issuance of comfort letters for prospectus supplements (c) assessments in connection with COSO 2013 Internal Controls Integrated Framework; and (d) specific procedures related to government subsidies.
The services comprising the Tax Fees category for these two fiscal years consisted of all fees paid in respect of tax compliance, planning and advisory services performed by the Auditors tax professionals, except those services required in order to comply with the standards of the PCAOB which are included under Audit Services. The tax services actually provided by the Auditor in fiscal 2015 and fiscal 2014 consisted of: domestic and international tax advisory, compliance and research services, as well as transfer pricing advisory services.
The category All Other Fees captures fees in respect of all permitted services not falling under any of the previous categories.
The Audit Committee has a process for pre-approving all services provided by, and related fees to be paid to, the Auditor. This process includes reviewing, on a quarterly basis, the details and associated costs of the services expected to be provided. Audit Committee approval is required for any services that have not been previously approved by the Audit Committee. The Audit Committee considers whether such services are consistent with the Commissions rules on auditor independence. The Audit Committee also considers whether the Auditor is best positioned to provide the most effective and efficient service, for reasons such as its familiarity with the Registrants business, people, culture, accounting systems, risk profile, and whether the services enhance the Registrants ability to manage or control risks and improve audit quality. None of the services provided by the Auditor in 2015 were treated as exempt from pre-approval pursuant to the de minimis provision of paragraph (c)(7)(i)(C) of Rule 2-01 of Regulation S-X.
