FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
 
In this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (Quarterly Report), we make statements concerning our expectations, beliefs, plans, objectives, goals, strategies, and future events or performance.  Such statements are “forward-looking” statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and relate to trends and events that may affect our future financial position and operating results.  The terms such as “will,” “may,” “could,” “would,” “plan,” “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “project,” and similar words of expressions, as well as statements in future tense, are intended to identify forward-looking statements.
 
Forward-looking statements should not be read as a guarantee of future performance or results, and will not necessarily be accurate indications of the times at, or by, which such performance or results will be achieved.  Forward-looking statements are based on information available at the time those statements are made and/or management’s good faith belief as of that time with respect to future events and are subject to risks and differ materially from those expressed in or suggested by the forward-looking statements.  Important factors that could cause such differences include, but are not limited to:
 
•    
global economic conditions; 
•    
our ability to comply with the definitive terms and conditions of various commercial and financing arrangements with General Motors Company (GM);
•    
reduced purchases of our products by GM, Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) or other customers;
•    
reduced demand for our customers’ products (particularly light trucks and SUVs produced by GM and Chrysler);
•    
availability of financing for working capital, capital expenditures, R&D or other general corporate purposes, including our ability to comply with financial covenants;
•    
our customers’ and suppliers’ availability of financing for working capital, capital expenditures, R&D or other general corporate purposes;
•    
the impact on us and our customers of requirements imposed on, or actions taken by, our customers in response to the U.S. government’s ownership interest, the Troubled Asset Relief Program or similar programs;
•    
our ability to achieve cost reductions through ongoing restructuring actions;
•    
additional restructuring actions that may occur;
•    
our ability to achieve the level of cost reductions required to sustain global cost competitiveness;
•    
our ability to maintain satisfactory labor relations and avoid future work stoppages;
•    
our suppliers’, our customers’ and their suppliers’ ability to maintain satisfactory labor relations and avoid work stoppages;
•    
our ability to continue to implement improvements in our U.S. labor cost structure;
•    
supply shortages or price increases in raw materials, utilities or other operating supplies;
•    
currency rate fluctuations;
•    
our ability or our customers’ and suppliers’ ability to successfully launch new product programs on a timely basis;
•    
our ability to realize the expected revenues from our new and incremental business backlog;
•    
our ability to attract new customers and programs for new products;
•    
our ability to develop and produce new products that reflect market demand;
•    
lower-than-anticipated market acceptance of new or existing products;
•    
our ability to respond to changes in technology, increased competition or pricing pressures;
•    
price volatility in, or reduced availability of, fuel;
•    
adverse changes in laws, government regulations or market conditions affecting our products or our customers’ products (such as the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (“CAFE”) regulations);
•    
adverse changes in the political stability of our principal markets (particularly North America, Europe, South America and Asia);
•    
liabilities arising from warranty claims, product liability and legal proceedings to which we are or may become a party;
•    
changes in liabilities arising from pension and other postretirement benefit obligations;
•    
risks of noncompliance with environmental regulations or risks of environmental issues that could result in unforeseen costs at our facilities;
•    
our ability to attract and retain key associates;
•    
other unanticipated events and conditions that may hinder our ability to compete.
 
It is not possible to foresee or identify all such factors and we make no commitment to update any forward-looking statement or to disclose any facts, events or circumstances after the date hereof that may affect the accuracy of any forward-looking statement.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)
 
1. ORGANIZATION AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION
 
Organization  American Axle & Manufacturing Holdings, Inc. (Holdings) and its subsidiaries (collectively, we, our, us or AAM) is a Tier I supplier to the automotive industry.  We manufacture, engineer, design and validate driveline and drivetrain systems and related components and chassis modules for light trucks, sport utility vehicles (SUVs), passenger cars, crossover vehicles and commercial vehicles.  Driveline and drivetrain systems include components that transfer power from the transmission and deliver it to the drive wheels.  Our driveline, drivetrain and related products include axles, chassis modules, driveshafts, power transfer units, transfer cases, chassis and steering components, driveheads, crankshafts, transmission parts and metal-formed products.  In addition to locations in the United States (U.S.) (Michigan, New York, Ohio, Indiana and Pennsylvania), we have offices or facilities in Brazil, China, England, Germany, India, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, Poland, Scotland, South Korea and Thailand.
 
Basis of Presentation We have prepared the accompanying interim condensed consolidated financial statements in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  These condensed consolidated financial statements are unaudited but include all normal recurring adjustments, which we consider necessary for a fair presentation of the information set forth herein.  Results of operations for the periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full fiscal year.
 
The balance sheet at December 31, 2009 presented herein has been derived from the audited consolidated financial statements at that date but does not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP) for complete consolidated financial statements.
 
In order to prepare the accompanying interim condensed consolidated financial statements, we are required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts and disclosures in our interim condensed consolidated financial statements.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.
 
For further information, refer to the audited consolidated financial statements and notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2009.

In the second quarter of 2010, we recorded asset impairment charges and indirect inventory obsolescence of $8.7 million as a result of the announced closure of our Salem Manufacturing Facility.
 
In 2010, we adjusted our operating plans and revised certain sourcing arrangements.  As a result, we elected to buy out and utilize certain leased assets that were previously determined to be permanently idled.  In the second quarter of 2010, we paid $3.4 million to purchase these leased assets and recorded a reduction of cost of goods sold of $2.0 million to adjust the accrual that was originally recorded when these assets were idled.

AMERICAN AXLE & MANUFACTURING HOLDINGS, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (CONTINUED)

We expect to make payments of approximately $4 million in the fourth quarter of 2010, $10 million in 2011 and $5 million in 2012 related to the remaining restructuring accrual.
 
3. SUPPLEMENTAL UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS
 
In conjunction with the 2008 labor agreements with the International United Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers of America (UAW), we accrued $18.0 million in 2008 related to supplemental unemployment benefits (SUB) to be paid to permanently idled associates during the contract period that expires in February 2012.
 
In 2010, we reached resolution with the UAW on an arbitration ruling related to the transfer of certain production from the Detroit Manufacturing Complex to another AAM facility.  As a result, we concluded that we no longer expect any of our remaining UAW represented associates related to the 2008 labor agreements to be permanently idled for the remainder of the contract period.  Therefore, we revised our previous estimate of our SUB liability.  In the second quarter of 2010, we recorded a reduction of cost of goods sold of $5.0 million to adjust the remaining SUB accrual based on these revised estimates.
 
4. INVENTORIES
 
We state our inventories at the lower of cost or market.  The cost of worldwide inventories is determined using the FIFO method.  When we determine that our gross inventories exceed usage requirements, or if inventories become obsolete or otherwise not saleable, we record a provision for such loss as a component of our inventory accounts.

The Revolving Credit Facility provides back-up liquidity for our foreign credit facilities.  We intend to use the availability of long-term financing under the Revolving Credit Facility to refinance any current maturities related to such debt agreements that are not otherwise refinanced on a long-term basis in their local markets.
 
We utilize local currency credit facilities to finance the operations of certain foreign subsidiaries.  At September 30, 2010, $33.7 million was outstanding under these facilities and an additional $0.5 million was available.
 
The weighted-average interest rate of our long-term debt outstanding at September 30, 2010 was 8.2% and 8.3% as of December 31, 2009.  
 
6. FAIR VALUE
 
The fair value accounting guidance defines fair value as “the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.”  The definition is based on an exit price rather than an entry price, regardless of whether the entity plans to hold or sell the asset.  This guidance also establishes a fair value hierarchy to prioritize inputs used in measuring fair value as follows:
 
•    
Level 1:  Observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets;
•    
Level 2:  Inputs, other than quoted prices in active markets, that are observable either directly or indirectly; and
•    
Level 3:  Unobservable inputs in which there is little or no market data, which require the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions.
 
Financial instruments   The estimated fair value of our financial assets and liabilities that are recognized at fair value on a recurring basis, using available market information and other observable data, as of September 30, 2010, are as follows:

In 2008, redemptions were temporarily suspended for certain money-market and other similar funds in which we invest.  We received $1.6 million in redemptions from these funds in the nine months ended September 30, 2010.  As of September 30, 2010, we have classified the fair value of the remaining investments of $2.8 million as short-term investments on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet.  We expect to receive the remaining balance of our current holdings in these funds within the next 12 months.

Long-lived assets  In the second quarter of 2010, as part of our impairment analysis, we were required to measure the fair value of certain long-lived assets.  In this analysis we utilized the income approach, which determines fair value through a discounted cash flow analysis based on the assumptions a market participant would use in pricing these assets.  Significant inputs used by management when determining the fair value of long-lived assets for impairment include general economic conditions, future expected production volumes, product pricing and cost estimates, working capital and capital investment requirements, discount rates and estimated liquidation values. The following table summarizes impairments of long-lived assets measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis subsequent to initial recognition (in millions):

In the third quarter of 2010, we classified certain administrative and engineering facilities located in Detroit, Michigan as held-for-sale and wrote these assets down to their estimated fair value using available market data. As a result, we recorded a loss of $4.8 million in the third quarter of 2010, of which $3.0 million was recorded to selling, general and administrative expenses and $1.8 million was recorded to cost of goods sold. We reclassified $0.6 million from property, plant and equipment, net to other assets and deferred charges on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of September 30, 2010.

7. DERIVATIVES
 
Our business and financial results are affected by fluctuations in world financial markets, including interest rates and currency exchange rates.  Our hedging policy has been developed to manage these risks to an acceptable level based on management’s judgment of the appropriate trade-off between risk, opportunity and cost.  We do not hold financial instruments for trading or speculative purposes.
 
Currency forward contracts  From time to time, we use foreign currency forward contracts to reduce the effects of fluctuations in exchange rates, primarily relating to the Mexican Peso.  As of September 30, 2010, we have forward contracts outstanding with a notional amount of $23.9 million that hedge our exposure to changes in foreign currency exchange rates for our payroll expenses.  There were no currency forward contracts in place as of December 31, 2009.
 
Interest rate hedges  We are exposed to variable interest rates on certain credit facilities.  From time to time, we use interest rate hedging to reduce the effects of fluctuations in market interest rates.  As of September 30, 2010 and December 31, 2009, no interest rate hedges were in place.

10. INCOME TAXES
 
  We are required to adjust our effective tax rate each quarter to consistently estimate our annual effective tax rate.  We must also record the tax impact of certain discrete items, unusual or infrequently occurring, including changes in judgment about valuation allowances and effects of changes in tax laws or rates, in the interim period in which they occur.  In addition, jurisdictions with a projected loss for the year or a year-to-date loss where no tax benefit can be recognized are excluded from the estimated annual effective tax rate.  The impact of such an exclusion could result in a higher or lower effective tax rate during a particular quarter, based upon the mix and timing of actual earnings versus annual projections.
 
Income tax expense was $0.8 million in the three months ended September 30, 2010 and $5.2 million in the first nine months of 2010 as compared to $5.5 million in the three months ended September 30, 2009 and $7.8 million in the first nine months of 2009.  Our effective income tax rate was 2.0% in the third quarter of 2010 and 6.1% in the first nine months of 2010 as compared to 22.0% in the third quarter of 2009 and negative 2.7% in the first nine months of 2009.  Our income tax expense and effective tax rate for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2010 and 2009 reflected the effect of recording a valuation allowance against income tax benefits on U.S. losses. In conjunction with the filing of our 2009 federal tax return, under provisions contained in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, we recorded a tax benefit of $1.4 million in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2010 attributable to the monetization of alternative minimum tax and research and development credits.  We will receive this tax refund during the fourth quarter of 2010. Our income tax expense and effective tax rate in the third quarter of 2009 reflects the effect of increasing our contingent tax liabilities by $4.8 million as a result of our quarterly analysis of uncertain tax positions.
 
In the first quarter of 2010, we received a $48.8 million refund as a result of the Worker, Homeownership and Business Act of 2009 which extended our 2008 net operating loss carryback period to 2003.
 
As a result of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, our deferred tax asset decreased by approximately $11 million.  As we have previously recorded a valuation allowance against our U.S. deferred tax assets, there was no net impact to income tax expense or our net deferred tax assets.
