ARVINMERITOR, INC.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
 
1. Basis of Presentation
 
     ArvinMeritor, Inc. (the "company" or "ArvinMeritor"), headquartered in Troy, Michigan, is a premier global supplier of a broad range of integrated systems, modules and components to original equipment manufacturers (“OEMs”) and the aftermarket for the commercial vehicle, transportation and industrial sectors. The company serves commercial truck, trailer, off-highway, military, bus and coach and other industrial OEMs and certain aftermarkets, and light vehicle OEMs. The consolidated financial statements are those of the company and its consolidated subsidiaries.
 
     Certain businesses are reported in discontinued operations in the consolidated statement of operations, statement of cash flows and related notes for all periods presented. Additional information regarding discontinued operations is discussed in Note 4.
 
     In the opinion of the company, the unaudited financial statements contain all adjustments, consisting solely of adjustments of a normal, recurring nature, necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented. These statements should be read in conjunction with the company’s audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K, as amended, for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2009. The results of operations for the nine months ended June 30, 2010, are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full year.
 
     The company’s fiscal year ends on the Sunday nearest September 30. The third quarter of fiscal years 2010 and 2009 ended on July 4, 2010 and June 28, 2009, respectively. All year and quarter references relate to the company’s fiscal year and fiscal quarters, unless otherwise stated. For ease of presentation, September 30 and June 30 are used consistently throughout this report to represent the fiscal year end and third quarter end, respectively.
 
     The company has evaluated subsequent events through August 4, 2010, the date that the consolidated financial statements were issued.
 
2. Shareowners’ Equity (Deficit) and Earnings per Share
 
     In March 2010, the company completed an equity offering of 19,952,500 common shares, par value of $1 per share, at a price of $10.50 per share. The proceeds of the offering of $200 million, net of underwriting discounts and commissions, were primarily used to repay outstanding indebtedness under the revolving credit facility and under the U.S. accounts receivable securitization program. The offering was made pursuant to a shelf registration statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 20, 2009, which became effective December 23, 2009 (the “Shelf Registration Statement”), registering $750 million aggregate debt and/or equity securities that may be offered in one or more series on terms to be determined at the time of sale.
 
     Basic earnings per share is calculated using the weighted average number of shares outstanding during each period. The diluted earnings per share calculation includes the impact of dilutive common stock options, restricted stock, performance share awards and convertible securities, if applicable.
 
     A reconciliation of basic average common shares outstanding to diluted average common shares outstanding is as follows (in millions):
 
Three Months Ended Nine Months Ended
June 30, June 30,
        2010         2009         2010         2009
Basic average common shares outstanding 93.2 72.7 81.8 72.5
Impact of restricted shares and share units 3.1 2.8
Impact of stock options 0.1
Diluted average common shares outstanding 96.4 72.7 84.6 72.5
 
     At June 30, 2010, options to purchase 1.1 million shares of common stock were not included in the computation of diluted earnings per share because their exercise price exceeded the average market price for the period and thus their inclusion would be anti-dilutive. The potential effects of stock options and restricted shares and share units were excluded from the diluted earnings per share calculation for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2009 because their inclusion in a net loss period would reduce the net loss per share. Therefore, at June 30, 2009, options to purchase 1.9 million shares of common stock were excluded from the computation of diluted earnings per share. In addition, 1.3 million restricted shares and 2.9 million share units were also excluded from the computation of diluted earnings per share at June 30, 2009. The company’s convertible senior unsecured notes are excluded from the computation of diluted earnings per share, as the company’s average stock price during the quarter is less than the conversion price.

3. New Accounting Standards
 
   New accounting standards to be implemented:
 
     In December 2008, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued guidance on defined benefit plans that requires new disclosures on investment policies and strategies, categories of plan assets, fair value measurements of plan assets, and significant concentrations of risk, and is effective for fiscal years ending after December 15, 2009, with earlier application permitted. Disclosures required by this guidance will be reflected in the company’s consolidated financial statements upon adoption.
 
     In June 2009, the FASB issued guidance on accounting for transfer of financial assets, which changes the requirements for recognizing the transfer of financial assets and requires additional disclosures about a transferor’s continuing involvement in transferred financial assets. The guidance also eliminates the concept of a “qualifying special purpose entity” when assessing transfers of financial instruments. As required, this guidance will be adopted by the company effective October 1, 2010. The company is currently evaluating the impact, if any, of the new requirements on its consolidated financial statements.
 
     In June 2009, the FASB issued guidance for the consolidation of variable interest entities (VIEs) to address the elimination of the concept of a qualifying special purpose entity. This guidance replaces the quantitative-based risks and rewards calculation for determining which enterprise has a controlling financial interest in a variable interest entity with an approach focused on identifying which enterprise has the power to direct the activities of the variable interest entity, and the obligation to absorb losses of the entity or the right to receive benefits from the entity. Additionally, the new guidance requires any enterprise that holds a variable interest in a variable interest entity to provide enhanced disclosures that will provide users of financial statements with more transparent information about an enterprise’s involvement in a variable interest entity. As required, this guidance will be adopted by the company effective October 1, 2010. The company is currently evaluating the impact, if any, of the new requirements on its consolidated financial statements.
 
   Accounting standards implemented in fiscal year 2010:
 
     In December 2007, the FASB issued consolidation guidance that establishes accounting and reporting standards for the noncontrolling interest in a subsidiary and for the deconsolidation of a subsidiary. The guidance clarifies that a noncontrolling interest in a subsidiary should be reported as equity in the consolidated financial statements. The guidance also changes the way the consolidated income statement is presented by requiring consolidated net income to be reported at amounts that include the amounts attributable to both the parent and the noncontrolling interest. The statement also requires that a parent recognize a gain or loss in net income when a subsidiary is deconsolidated. If a parent retains a noncontrolling equity investment in the former subsidiary, that investment is measured at its fair value. This guidance is effective for the company for its fiscal year beginning October 1, 2009 and, as required, has been applied prospectively, except for the presentation and disclosure requirements, which have been applied retrospectively for all periods presented. The company has modified the presentation and disclosure of noncontrolling interests in accordance with the requirement of the guidance, which resulted in changes in the presentation of the company’s consolidated statement of operations and condensed consolidated balance sheet and statement of cash flows; and required it to incorporate a condensed consolidated statement of equity (deficit) and comprehensive income (loss). Other than the required changes in the presentation of non-controlling interests in the consolidated financial statements, the adoption of this consolidation guidance did not have a significant impact on the company’s consolidated financial statements.
 
     In May 2008, the FASB issued guidance contained in Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) Topic 470-20, “Debt with Conversion and Other Options” which applies to all convertible debt instruments that have a “net settlement feature,” which means that such convertible debt instruments, by their terms, may be settled either wholly or partially in cash upon conversion. This topic requires issuers of convertible debt instruments that may be settled wholly or partially in cash upon conversion to separately account for the liability and equity components in a manner reflective of the issuers’ nonconvertible debt borrowing rate. Topic 470-20 is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2008 and interim periods within those fiscal years.
 
     This guidance impacted the company’s accounting for its outstanding $300 million convertible notes issued in 2006 (the 2006 convertible notes) and $200 million convertible notes issued in 2007 (the 2007 convertible notes) (see Note 16). On October 1, 2009, the company adopted this guidance and applied its impact retrospectively to all periods presented. Upon adoption, the company recognized the estimated equity component of the convertible notes of $108 million ($69 million after tax) in additional paid-in capital. In addition, the company allocated $4 million of unamortized debt issuance costs to the equity component and recognized this amount as a reduction to additional paid-in capital. The company also recognized a discount on convertible notes of $108 million, which is being amortized as non-cash interest expense over periods of ten and twelve years for the 2006 convertible notes and 2007 convertible notes, respectively. The periods of ten and twelve years represent the expected life of the convertible notes based on the earliest period holders of the notes may redeem them. Non-cash interest expense for the amortization of the discount was $8 million, $7 million and $6 million for fiscal years 2009, 2008 and 2007, respectively. At June 30, 2010, the remaining amortization periods for the 2006 convertible notes and 2007 convertible notes were six years and nine years, respectively. Effective interest rates on the 2006 convertible notes and 2007 convertible notes were 7.0 percent and 7.7 percent, respectively.

     Upon recognition of the equity component of the convertible notes, the company also recognized a deferred tax liability of $39 million as the tax effect of the basis difference between carrying and notional values of the convertible notes. The carrying value of this deferred tax liability was offset with certain net deferred tax assets in the first quarter of fiscal year 2009 for determining valuation allowances against those deferred tax assets (see Note 7 for additional information on valuation allowances).
 
     At June 30, 2010 and September 30, 2009, the carrying amount of the equity component recognized upon adoption was $67 million. The following table summarizes other information related to the convertible notes.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
 
     In conjunction with the company’s long-term strategic objective to focus on supplying the commercial vehicle on- and off-highway markets for original equipment manufacturers, aftermarket and industrial customers, the company previously announced its intent to divest the Light Vehicle Systems (LVS) business groups. As of June 30, 2010, the company has completed the following divestiture-related activities, associated with its LVS segment, all of which are included in results of discontinued operations.
 
     Meritor Suspension Systems Company (MSSC) – On June 24, 2009, the company entered into a binding letter of intent to sell its 57 percent interest in MSSC, a joint venture that manufactured and supplied automotive coil springs, torsion bars and stabilizer bars in North America, to the joint venture partner, a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Steel Mfg. Co., LTD (MSM). The sale transaction closed in October 2009. The purchase price was $13 million, which included a cash dividend of $12 million received by the company in June 2009. The remaining purchase price was received by the company at the time of closing.
 
     Assets and liabilities of MSSC were included in assets and liabilities of discontinued operations in the consolidated balance sheet at September 30, 2009. Assets of MSSC primarily consisted of current assets of $34 million, fixed assets of $13 million and other long term assets. Liabilities of MSSC primarily consisted of short-term debt, accounts payable, restructuring reserves and approximately $69 million of accrued pension and post retirement benefits. Short-term debt related to a $6 million, 6.5-percent loan with the minority partner. Upon completion of the sale, the company’s interest in all assets and liabilities of MSSC were transferred to the buyer.
 
     Wheels – In September 2009, the company completed the sale of its Wheels business to Iochpe-Maxion S.A., a Brazilian producer of wheels and frames for commercial vehicles, railway freight cars and castings, and affiliates.
 
     Gabriel Ride Control Products North America (Gabriel Ride Control) – The company’s Gabriel Ride Control business supplied motion control products, shock absorbers, struts, ministruts and corner modules, as well as other automotive parts to the passenger car, light truck and sport utility vehicle aftermarket industries. Effective as of June 28, 2009, the company substantially completed the sale of its Gabriel Ride Control business to Ride Control, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of OpenGate Capital, a private equity firm. The Gabriel Ride Control sale agreement contains arrangements for royalties and other items which are not expected to materially impact the company in the future.
 
     Gabriel de Venezuela – On June 5, 2009, the company sold its 51 percent interest in Gabriel de Venezuela to its joint venture partner. Gabriel de Venezuela, supplied shock absorbers, struts, exhaust systems and suspension modules to light vehicle industry customers, primarily in Venezuela and Colombia. In conjunction with the sale, $18 million of cash was retained by the joint venture and the company received dividends of approximately $1 million from the joint venture. The company was also released from its guarantees of approximately $11 million of letters of credit.
 
     The following summarizes charges associated with the divested businesses recognized during three and nine-month periods ended June 30, 2010 and 2009:
 
     Net gain (loss) on sale of business: In connection with the sale of the company’s interest in MSSC, the company recognized a pre-tax gain on sale of $16 million ($16 million after tax), net of estimated indemnity obligations during the first quarter of fiscal year 2010. The company provided certain indemnifications to the buyer for its share of potential obligations related to taxes, pension funding shortfall, environmental and other contingencies, and valuation of certain accounts receivable and inventories. The company’s estimated exposure under these indemnities is approximately $15 million and is included in other liabilities in the condensed consolidated balance sheet at June 30, 2010.
 
     In the third quarter of the prior fiscal year, the company recognized pre-tax losses of $23 million ($23 million after-tax) and $41 million ($41 million after-tax) on the sale of Gabriel de Venezuela and Gabriel Ride Control, respectively. The remaining amount of loss on sale of business in the prior year is associated with other LVS divestiture activities.
 
     Long-lived asset impairment charges: In the first quarter of fiscal year 2009, the company recognized $56 million ($51 million after-tax) of non-cash impairment charges associated with certain long-lived assets of businesses included in discontinued operations (see Note 12).
 
     Charge for indemnity obligations: In December 2005, the company guaranteed a third party’s obligation to reimburse another party for payment of health and prescription drug benefits to a group of retired employees. The retirees were former employees of a wholly-owned subsidiary of the company prior to it being acquired by the company. The wholly-owned subsidiary, which was part of the company’s light vehicle aftermarket business, was sold by the company in fiscal year 2006. Prior to May 2009, except as set forth hereinafter, the third party met its obligations to reimburse the other party. In May 2009, the third party filed for bankruptcy protection under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code requiring the company to recognize its obligations under the guarantee. The company recorded a $28 million liability in the third quarter of fiscal year 2009, of which approximately $6 million related to claims not reimbursed by the third party prior to its filing for bankruptcy protection, and $22 million of which related to the company’s best estimate of its future obligation under the guarantee. At June 30, 2010 and September 30, 2009, the remaining estimated liability for this matter was approximately $22 million and $28 million, respectively.

     Restructuring costs: In the second quarter of fiscal year 2009, the company announced the closure of its coil spring operations in Milton, Ontario, Canada (Milton), which is part of MSSC. Costs associated with this closure were $8 million for employee severance benefits, and are included in restructuring costs in the table above. The remaining restructuring costs during the three- and nine-month periods ended June 30, 2009 were primarily related to reduction in workforce actions completed as part of fiscal year 2009 restructuring actions (see Note 6).
 
     Purchase price and other adjustments – These adjustments primarily relate to charges for changes in estimates for purchase price adjustments and indemnity obligations for previously sold business. Included in the purchase price and other adjustments for the nine months ended June 30, 2010 were $8 million of charges associated with the Gabriel Ride Control working capital adjustments recognized in the first quarter of fiscal year 2010. In April 2010, the company and Ride Control, LLC settled the final working capital purchase price adjustment resulting in no additional impact to the amounts already recorded.
 
     Net income attributable to noncontrolling interests: Noncontrolling interests represent the company’s minority partners’ share of income or loss associated with its less than 100 percent owned consolidated joint ventures. In the third quarter of fiscal year 2009, MSSC recorded a dividend payable of $9 million to the minority partner in conjunction with the signing of the binding letter of intent for the sale of ArvinMeritor’s interest in MSSC. The dividend payable was recognized by ArvinMeritor as a charge to earnings during the third quarter of fiscal year 2009 and is included in noncontrolling interests in the table above. Also included in noncontrolling interests in the third quarter of fiscal year 2009 are approximately $9 million of non-cash charges associated with the minority partner’s share of operating losses and an approximately $4 million non-cash income tax charge related to a valuation allowance recorded against deferred tax assets of MSSC that were no longer expected to be realized. The remaining amount of noncontrolling interests pertains to minority partners’ share of net income (losses).
 
5. Goodwill
 
     In accordance with FASB ASC Topic 350-20, “Intangibles – Goodwill and Other”, goodwill is reviewed for impairment annually during the fourth quarter of the fiscal year or more frequently if certain indicators arise. If business conditions or other factors cause the operating results and cash flows of the reporting unit to decline, the company may be required to record impairment charges for goodwill at that time. The goodwill impairment review is a two-step process. Step one consists of a comparison of the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount. An impairment loss may be recognized if the review indicates that the carrying value of a reporting unit exceeds its fair value. Estimates of fair value are primarily determined by using discounted cash flows and market multiples on earnings. If the carrying amount of a reporting unit exceeds its fair value, step two requires the fair value of the reporting unit to be allocated to the underlying assets and liabilities of that reporting unit, resulting in an implied fair value of goodwill. If the carrying amount of the goodwill of the reporting unit exceeds the implied fair value, an impairment charge is recorded equal to the excess.
 
     The impairment review is highly judgmental and involves the use of significant estimates and assumptions. These estimates and assumptions have a significant impact on the amount of any impairment charge recorded. Discounted cash flow methods are dependent upon assumptions of future sales trends, market conditions and cash flows of each reporting unit over several years. Actual cash flows in the future may differ significantly from those previously forecasted. Other significant assumptions include growth rates and the discount rate applicable to future cash flows.
 
     During the first quarter of fiscal year 2009, both light and commercial vehicle industries experienced significant declines in overall economic conditions including tightening credit markets, stock market declines and significant reductions in current and forecasted production volumes for light and commercial vehicles. This, along with other factors, led to a significant decline in the company’s market capitalization subsequent to September 30, 2008. As a result, the company completed an impairment review of goodwill balances during the first quarter of fiscal year 2009 for each of its reporting units, which were Commercial Vehicle Systems (CVS) and LVS, at that time.
 
     Step one of the company’s first quarter goodwill impairment review indicated that the carrying value of the LVS reporting unit significantly exceeded its estimated fair value. As a result of the step two goodwill impairment analysis, the company recorded a $70 million non-cash impairment charge in the first quarter of fiscal year 2009 to write-off the entire goodwill balance of its LVS reporting unit. The fair value of this reporting unit was estimated using earnings multiples and other available information, including indicated values from then recent attempts to divest certain businesses. The company’s step one impairment review of goodwill associated with its CVS reporting unit did not indicate that an impairment existed as of December 31, 2008.

       (1)       
There were no corporate restructuring costs in the nine months ended June 30, 2010. In the nine months ended June 30, 2009 there were $4 million of corporate restructuring costs, primarily related to employee termination benefits.
 
     Fiscal Year 2010 LVS Actions: Fiscal Year 2010 Actions are primarily related to employee termination benefits, including those associated with the wind down of certain LVS Chassis businesses. Additional costs expected to be incurred for programs under these actions are not expected to be significant.
 
     Fiscal Year 2009 Actions: During the first quarter of fiscal year 2009, the company approved certain restructuring actions in response to a significant decline in global market conditions. These actions primarily related to the reduction of approximately 1,500 salaried, hourly and temporary positions worldwide. The company recorded restructuring costs of $42 million associated with these actions in the first nine months of fiscal year 2009. As of June 30, 2010, cumulative costs, net of adjustments, incurred for Fiscal Year 2009 Actions are $44 million, primarily in the company’s Commercial Truck and LVS segments. All of these costs were incurred in fiscal year 2009.
 
     Performance Plus: During fiscal year 2007, the company launched a long-term profit improvement and cost reduction initiative called “Performance Plus.” As part of this program, the company identified significant restructuring actions which would eliminate up to 2,800 positions in North America and Europe and consolidate and combine certain global facilities. Cumulative restructuring costs recorded for this program, including amounts reported in discontinued operations, are $142 million as of June 30, 2010 and primarily relate to employee termination costs of $82 million. Remaining costs of this restructuring program are estimated to be approximately $60 million and will be incurred over the next several years as anticipated actions are implemented.
 
7. Income Taxes
 
     For each interim reporting period, the company makes an estimate of the effective tax rate expected to be applicable for the full fiscal year pursuant to ASC Topic 740-270, “Accounting for Income Taxes in Interim Periods.” The rate so determined is used in providing for income taxes on a year-to-date basis. Jurisdictions with a projected loss for the year or an actual year-to-date loss where no tax benefit can be recognized are excluded from the estimated annual effective tax rate. The impact of including these jurisdictions on the quarterly effective rate calculation 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 (benefit) is allocated between continuing operations, discontinued operations and other comprehensive income (OCI). Such allocation is applied by tax jurisdiction, and in periods in which there is a pre-tax loss from continuing operations and pre-tax income in another category, such as discontinued operations or OCI, income tax expense is first allocated to the other sources of income, with a related benefit recorded in continuing operations.
 
     In first quarter of fiscal year 2009, the company recorded a charge of $633 million, to establish valuation allowances against its U.S. net deferred tax assets and the net deferred tax assets of its 100% owned subsidiaries in France, Germany, Italy, and Sweden. In accordance with FASB’s income tax guidance, the company evaluates the deferred income taxes quarterly to determine if valuation allowances are required. The guidance requires that companies assess whether valuation allowances should be established against their deferred tax assets based on the consideration of all available evidence using a “more-likely-than-not” standard. In making such judgments, significant weight is given to evidence that can be objectively verified. If, in the future, the company overcomes negative evidence in tax jurisdictions that have established valuation allowances, the need for valuation allowances in these tax jurisdictions would change, resulting in the reversal of some or all of such valuation allowances. If taxable income is generated in tax jurisdictions prior to overcoming negative evidence, a portion of the valuation allowance relating to the corresponding realized tax benefit would reverse for that period, without changing the company’s conclusions on the need for a valuation allowance against the remaining net deferred tax assets.
 
     The company believed that these valuation allowances were required due to events and developments that occurred during the first quarter of fiscal year 2009. In conducting the first quarter 2009 analysis, the company utilized a consistent approach which considers its three-year historical cumulative income (loss) including an assessment of the degree to which any losses were driven by items that are unusual in nature and incurred in order to achieve profitability in the future. In addition, the company reviewed changes in near-term market conditions and any other factors arising during the period which may impact future operating results. Both positive and negative evidence were considered in the analysis. Significant negative evidence existed due to the ongoing deterioration of the global markets. The analysis for the first quarter of fiscal year 2009 showed a three-year historical cumulative loss in the U.S., France, Germany, Italy, and Sweden. The losses continue to exist even after adjusting the results to remove unusual items and charges, which is considered a significant factor in the analysis as it is objectively verifiable and therefore, significant negative evidence. In addition, the global market deterioration in fiscal year 2009 reduced the expected impact of tax planning strategies that were included in the analysis. Accordingly, based on a three year historical cumulative loss, combined with significant and inherent uncertainty as to the timing of when the company would be able to generate the necessary level of earnings to recover its deferred tax assets in the U.S., France, Germany, Italy, and Sweden, the company concluded that valuation allowances were required.

     In the first nine months of fiscal year 2010, the company recorded approximately $16 million of net favorable tax items discrete to this period. These discrete items related to the reversal of a valuation allowance of $8 million and other net favorable adjustments of $8 million, primarily related to reducing certain liabilities for uncertain tax positions during the period. The reduction in these liabilities is primarily attributable to the expiration of the statute of limitations in certain jurisdictions and management’s evaluation of new information that became available during the period. These discrete items decreased the company’s effective tax rate for the nine months ended June 30, 2010.
 
     For the first nine months of fiscal year 2010, the company had approximately $149 million of net pre-tax losses in tax jurisdictions that have established valuation allowances. Tax benefits arising from these jurisdictions resulted in increasing the valuation allowance, rather than reducing income tax expense.
 
8. Accounts Receivable Securitization and Factoring
 
     Off-balance sheet arrangements
 
     The company participates in an arrangement to sell trade receivables through certain of its European subsidiaries. Under the arrangement, the company can sell, at any point in time, up to 90 million of eligible trade receivables. The receivables under this program are sold at face value and are excluded from the company’s consolidated balance sheet. The company continues to perform collection and administrative functions related to these receivables. Costs associated with this securitization arrangement were $1 million and $3 million in the nine months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively, and are included in operating income (loss) in the consolidated statement of operations. The gross amount of proceeds received from the sale of receivables under this arrangement was $249 million and $250 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively. The company’s retained interest in receivables sold was $3 million and $6 million at June 30, 2010 and September 30, 2009, respectively. The company had utilized, net of retained interests, 66 million ($83 million) and 38 million ($56 million) of this accounts receivable securitization facility as of June 30, 2010 and September 30, 2009, respectively.
 
     In addition, several of the company’s subsidiaries, primarily in Europe, factor eligible accounts receivable with financial institutions. Certain receivables are factored without recourse to the company and are excluded from accounts receivable in the consolidated balance sheet. The amount of factored receivables excluded from accounts receivable was $72 million and $37 million at June 30, 2010 and September 30, 2009, respectively. Costs associated with these factoring arrangements were $2 million and $4 million in the nine months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively, and are included in operating income (loss) in the consolidated statement of operations.
 
     On-balance sheet arrangements
 
     Since 2005 the company participated in a U.S. accounts receivable securitization program to enhance financial flexibility and lower interest costs. In September 2009, in anticipation of the expiration of the existing facility, the company entered into a new, two year $125 million U.S. receivables financing arrangement which is provided on a committed basis by a syndicate of financial institutions led by GMAC Commercial Finance LLC and expires in September 2011. Under this program, the company sells substantially all of the trade receivables of certain U.S. subsidiaries to ArvinMeritor Receivables Corporation (ARC), a wholly-owned, special purpose subsidiary. The maximum borrowing capacity under this program is $125 million. ARC funds these purchases with borrowings under a loan agreement with participating lenders. Amounts outstanding under this agreement are collateralized by eligible receivables purchased by ARC and are reported as short-term debt in the consolidated balance sheet. At June 30, 2010 no amount was outstanding under this program. At September 30, 2009, $83 million was outstanding under this program. This program does not have specific financial covenants, however, it does have a cross-default provision to the company’s revolving credit facility agreement.

12. Net Property and Impairments of Long-lived Assets
 
     In accordance with the FASB guidance on property, plant and equipment, the company reviews the carrying value of long-lived assets, excluding goodwill, to be held and used, for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate a possible impairment. An impairment loss is recognized when a long-lived asset’s carrying value is not recoverable and exceeds estimated fair value.
 
     In the prior year first quarter, management determined certain impairment reviews were required due to declines in overall economic conditions including tightening credit markets, stock market declines and significant reductions in current and forecasted production volumes for light and commercial vehicles. As a result, the company recognized pre-tax, non-cash impairment charges of $209 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2009, primarily related to the LVS segment. A portion of this non-cash charge related to businesses presented in discontinued operations and accordingly, $56 million is included in loss from discontinued operations in the consolidated statement of operations (see Note 4). The estimated fair value of long-lived assets was calculated based on probability weighted cash flows taking into account current expectations for asset utilization and life expectancy. In addition, liquidation values were considered where appropriate, as well as indicated values from divestiture activities.
 
     The following table describes the significant components of long-lived asset impairments recorded in continuing operations during the first quarter of fiscal year 2009.

     In the second quarter of fiscal year 2010, the company paid approximately $16 million of costs associated with the issuance of debt securities and the amendment and extension of its revolving credit facility. These costs were recognized as a long term asset and are being amortized as interest expense over the term of the underlying debt instrument.
 
     The note receivable from EMCON was recorded net of a discount to reflect the difference between the stated rate per the agreement of 4 percent and the effective interest rate of approximately 9 percent. The discount was being amortized over the term of the note as interest income. EMCON underwent a change in control during the company’s second quarter of fiscal year 2010, and therefore, the note became immediately payable. The company received $22 million during the second quarter, which represented the full amount of the note plus accrued interest. Upon receipt of the full outstanding amount of the note, the company recognized the remaining unamortized discount of $6 million to current period income. This amount is included in interest expense, net in the accompanying consolidated statement of operations.

Liabilities for product recall campaigns are recorded at the time the company’s obligation is probable and can be reasonably estimated. Product warranties, including recall campaigns, not expected to be paid within one year are recorded as a non-current liability.

The 4.625 percent and 4.0 percent convertible notes contain a put and call feature, which allows for earlier redemption beginning in 2016 and 2019, respectively (see Convertible Securities below) (see Note 3).
 
   Debt Securities
 
     On March 3, 2010, the company completed a public offering of debt securities consisting of the issuance of $250 million 8-year fixed rate 10-5/8 percent notes due March 15, 2018. The offering was made pursuant to the Shelf Registration Statement. The notes were issued at a discounted price of 98.024 percent of their principal amount. The proceeds from the sale of the notes, net of discount, were $245 million and were primarily used to repurchase $175 million of the company’s previously $276 million outstanding 8-3/4 percent notes due 2012.
 
     On March 23, 2010, the company completed the debt tender offer for its 8-3/4 percent notes due March 1, 2012. The notes were repurchased at 109.75 percent of their principal amount. The repurchase of $175 million of 8-3/4 percent notes was accounted for as an extinguishment of debt and, accordingly, the company recognized a net loss on debt extinguishment of approximately $13 million, which is included in interest expense, net in the consolidated statement of operations. The loss on debt extinguishment primarily relates to the $17 million paid in excess of par to repurchase the $175 million of 8-3/4 percent notes, partially offset by a $6 million gain associated with the acceleration of previously deferred unamortized interest rate swap gains associated with the 8-3/4 percent notes.

     On June 15, 2010, the company purchased in the open market $17 million of its 8-3/4 percent notes due March 1, 2012. The notes were repurchased at 104.875 percent of their principal amount. On June 17, 2010, the company purchased in the open market $1 million of its 8-1/8 percent notes due September 15, 2015. The notes were repurchased at 94.000 percent of their principal amount.
 
   Revolving Credit Facility
 
     On February 5, 2010 the company signed an agreement to amend and extend its revolving credit facility, which became effective February 26, 2010. Pursuant to the revolving credit facility as amended, the company has a $539 million revolving credit facility (excluding approximately $28 million of commitments that are currently unavailable due to the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers in 2008), $143 million of which matures in June 2011 for banks electing not to extend their original commitments (non-extending banks) and the other $396 million matures in January 2014 for banks electing to extend their commitments (extending banks). Availability under the revolving credit facility is subject to a collateral test, pursuant to which borrowings on the revolving credit facility cannot exceed 1.0x the collateral test value. The collateral test is performed on a quarterly basis and under the most recent collateral test, the full amount of the revolving credit facility was available for borrowing at June 30, 2010. Availability under the revolving credit facility is also subject to certain financial covenants based on (i) the ratio of the company’s priority debt (consisting principally of amounts outstanding under the revolving credit facility, U.S. securitization program, and third-party non-working capital foreign debt) to EBITDA and (ii) the amount of annual capital expenditures. The company is required to maintain a total priority debt-to-EBITDA ratio, as defined in the agreement, of (i) no greater than 2.75 to 1 on the last day of the fiscal quarter commencing with the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2010 through and including the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2010 and (ii) 2.50 to 1 as of the last day of each fiscal quarter commencing with the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2010 through and including the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2011 and (iii) 2.25 to 1 as of the last day of each fiscal quarter commencing with the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2011 through and including the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2012 and (iv) 2.00 to 1 as of the last day of each fiscal quarter thereafter through maturity. At June 30, 2010, the company was in compliance with all covenants under its credit agreement with a ratio of approximately 0.11x for the priority debt-to-EBITDA covenant.
 
     The revolving credit facility includes a $100 million limit on the issuance of letters of credit. At June 30, 2010, and September 30, 2009, approximately $26 million and $27 million of letters of credit were issued, respectively. The company had an additional $4 and $5 million outstanding at June 30, 2010 and September 30, 2009, respectively, on letters of credit available through other facilities.
 
     Borrowings under the revolving credit facility are collateralized by approximately $606 million of the company’s assets, primarily consisting of eligible domestic U.S. accounts receivable, inventory, plant, property and equipment, intellectual property and the company’s investment in all or a portion of certain of its wholly-owned subsidiaries.
 
     Borrowings under the revolving credit facility are subject to interest based on quoted LIBOR rates plus a margin, and a commitment fee on undrawn amounts, both of which are based upon the company’s current credit rating for the senior secured facility. At June 30, 2010, the margin over the LIBOR rate was 275 basis points for the $143 million available under the facility from non-extending banks, and the commitment fee was 50 basis points. At June 30, 2010, the margin over LIBOR rate was 500 basis points for the $396 million available under the revolving credit facility from extending banks, and the commitment fee was 75 basis points.
 
     Certain of the company’s subsidiaries, as defined in the credit agreement, irrevocably and unconditionally guarantee amounts outstanding under the revolving credit facility. Similar subsidiary guarantees are provided for the benefit of the holders of the publicly-held notes outstanding under the company’s indentures (see Note 21).
 
   Convertible Securities
 
     In February 2007, the company issued $200 million of 4.00 percent convertible senior unsecured notes due 2027 (the 2007 convertible notes). In March 2006, the company issued $300 million of 4.625 percent convertible senior unsecured notes due 2026 (the 2006 convertible notes). The 2007 convertible notes bear cash interest at a rate of 4.00 percent per annum from the date of issuance through February 15, 2019, payable semi-annually in arrears on February 15 and August 15 of each year. After February 15, 2019, the principal amount of the notes will be subject to accretion at a rate that provides holders with an aggregate annual yield to maturity of 4.00 percent. The 2006 convertible notes bear cash interest at a rate of 4.625 percent per annum from the date of issuance through March 1, 2016, payable semi-annually in arrears on March 1 and September 1 of each year. After March 1, 2016, the principal amount of the notes will be subject to accretion at a rate that provides holders with an aggregate annual yield to maturity of 4.625 percent.

     On October 1, 2009, the company adopted, as required, the guidance for accounting for convertible debt instruments that, upon conversion, may be settled in cash. This guidance was applied retrospectively to all periods presented. See Note 3 for additional information on the adoption and its impact on the company’s financial statements.
 
   Conversion Features – convertible securities
 
     The 2007 convertible notes are convertible into shares of the company’s common stock at an initial conversion rate, subject to adjustment, equivalent to 37.4111 shares of common stock per $1,000 initial principal amount of notes, which represents an initial conversion price of approximately $26.73 per share. If converted, the accreted principal amount will be settled in cash and the remainder of the company’s conversion obligation, if any, in excess of such accreted principal amount will be settled in cash, shares of common stock, or a combination thereof, at the company’s election. Holders may convert their notes at any time on or after February 15, 2025. The maximum number of shares of common stock the 2007 convertible notes are convertible into is approximately 7 million.
 
     The 2006 convertible notes are convertible into shares of the company’s common stock at an initial conversion rate, subject to adjustment, equivalent to 47.6667 shares of common stock per $1,000 initial principal amount of notes, which represents an initial conversion price of approximately $20.98 per share. If converted, the accreted principal amount will be settled in cash and the remainder of the company’s conversion obligation, if any, in excess of such accreted principal amount will be settled in cash, shares of common stock, or a combination thereof, at the company’s election. Holders may convert their notes at any time on or after March 1, 2024. The maximum number of shares of common stock the 2006 convertible notes are convertible into is approximately 14 million.
 
     Prior to February 15, 2025 (2007 convertible notes) and March 1, 2024 (2006 convertible notes), holders may convert their notes only under the following circumstances:
   Redemption Features – convertible securities
 
     On or after February 15, 2019, the company may redeem the 2007 convertible notes, in whole or in part, for cash at a redemption price equal to 100 percent of the accreted principal amount plus any accrued and unpaid interest. On each of February 15, 2019 and 2022, or upon certain fundamental changes, holders may require the company to purchase all or a portion of their 2007 convertible notes at a purchase price in cash equal to 100 percent of the accreted principal amount plus any accrued and unpaid interest.
 
     On or after March 1, 2016, the company may redeem the 2006 convertible notes, in whole or in part, for cash at a redemption price equal to 100 percent of the accreted principal amount plus any accrued and unpaid interest. On each of March 1, 2016, 2018, 2020, 2022 and 2024, or upon certain fundamental changes, holders may require the company to purchase all or a portion of their 2006 convertible notes at a purchase price in cash equal to 100 percent of the accreted principal amount plus any accrued and unpaid interest.
 
     The 2007 and 2006 convertible notes are fully and unconditionally guaranteed by certain subsidiaries of the company that currently guarantee the company’s obligations under its senior secured credit facility and other publicly-held notes (see Revolving Credit Facility above).
 
   Accounts Receivable Securitization
 
     Since 2005 the company participated in a U.S. accounts receivable securitization program to enhance financial flexibility and lower interest costs (see Note 8). In September 2009, in anticipation of the expiration of the existing facility, the company entered into a new, two year $125 million U.S. receivables financing arrangement which is provided on a committed basis by a syndicate of financial institutions led by GMAC Commercial Finance LLC and expires in September 2011. The weighted average interest rate on borrowings under this arrangement was approximately 7.50 percent at June 30, 2010. At June 30, 2010, no amount was outstanding under this program. At September 30, 2009, $83 million was outstanding under this program. Amounts outstanding under this agreement are reported as short-term debt in the consolidated balance sheet and are collateralized by eligible receivables purchased and held by ARC. This program does not have specific financial covenants; however, it does have a cross-default provision to the company’s revolving credit facility agreement.

   Interest Rate Swap Agreement
 
     In March 2010, the company entered into an interest rate swap agreement that effectively converted $125 million of the company’s 8-1/8 percent notes due 2015 to variable interest rates. The fair value of the swap was an asset of $6 million at June 30, 2010. The terms of the interest rate swap agreement require the company to place cash on deposit as collateral if the fair value of the interest rate swap represents a liability for the company at any time. The swap has been designated as a fair value hedge and the impact of the changes in its fair values is offset by an equal and opposite change in the carrying value of the related notes. Under the terms of the swap agreement, the company receives a fixed rate of interest of 8-1/8 percent on notional amounts of $125 million and pays a variable rate based on U.S. dollar six-month LIBOR plus a spread of 4.61 percent. The payments under the swap agreement coincide with the interest payment dates on the hedged debt instrument, and the difference between the amounts paid and received is included in interest expense, net.
 
     The company classifies the cash flows associated with its interest rate swaps in cash flows from operating activities in its consolidated statement of cash flows. This is consistent with the classification of the cash flows associated with the underlying hedged item.
 
     In July 2010, the company terminated the interest rate swap agreement and received proceeds from the termination of approximately $6 million. The unamortized fair value adjustment of the notes associated with this swap is classified as long-term debt in the consolidated balance sheet and will be amortized to earnings as a reduction of interest expense over the remaining term of the debt.
 
   Interest Rate Cap Agreement
 
     In March 2010, the company entered into an interest rate cap agreement which limits its maximum exposure on the variable interest rate swap to 7.515 percent over the variable rate spread. The cap instrument does not qualify for hedge accounting; therefore, the impact of the changes in its fair value is being recorded in the consolidated statement of operations. The fair value of the cap instrument was not significant at June 30, 2010. In July 2010, the company terminated the interest rate cap agreement.
 
   Leases
 
     The company has various operating leasing arrangements. Future minimum lease payments under these operating leases are $24 million in 2010, $20 million in 2011, $16 million in 2012, $14 million in 2013, $12 million in 2014 and $25 million thereafter.
 
17. Financial Instruments
 
     The company’s financial instruments include cash and cash equivalents, short-term debt, long-term debt, interest rate swaps, interest rate cap and foreign exchange forward contracts. The company uses derivatives for hedging and non-trading purposes in order to manage its interest rate and foreign exchange rate exposures. The company’s interest rate swap agreement and interest rate cap agreement are discussed in Note 16.
 
   Foreign Exchange Contracts
 
     The company’s operations are exposed to global market risks, including the effect of changes in foreign currency exchange rates. The company has a foreign currency cash flow hedging program to reduce the company’s exposure to changes in exchange rates. The company uses foreign currency forward contracts to manage the company’s exposures arising from foreign currency exchange risk. Gains and losses on the underlying foreign currency exposures are partially offset with gains and losses on the foreign currency forward contracts.
 
     Under this program, the company has designated the foreign exchange contracts (the “contracts”) as cash flow hedges of underlying forecasted foreign currency purchases and sales. The effective portion of changes in the fair value of the contracts is recorded in Accumulated Other Comprehensive Loss (AOCL) in the consolidated balance sheet and is recognized in operating income when the underlying forecasted transaction impacts earnings. The terms of the foreign exchange contracts require the company to place cash on deposit as collateral if the fair value of these contracts represents a liability for the company at any time. The fair values of the foreign exchange derivative instruments and any related collateral cash deposits are presented on a net basis as the derivative contracts are subject to master netting arrangements.

     The company’s foreign exchange contracts generally mature within twelve months. At June 30, 2010 and September 30, 2009, the company had outstanding contracts with notional amounts of $38 million and $89 million, respectively. These notional values consist primarily of contracts for the European euro, Australian dollar and Swedish krona, and are stated in U.S. dollar equivalents at spot exchange rates at the respective dates.
 
     At June 30, 2010 and September 30, 2009, there was a gain of $1 million and a loss of $2 million recorded in AOCL, respectively. The company expects to reclassify this amount from AOCL to operating income during the next three months as the forecasted hedged transactions are recognized in earnings.
 
     The company classifies the cash flows associated with the contracts in cash flows from operating activities in the consolidated statement of cash flows. This is consistent with the classification of the cash flows associated with the underlying hedged item.
 
   Fair Value
 
     Fair values of financial instruments are summarized as follows (in millions):
 
June 30, September 30,
2010 2009
Carrying Fair Carrying Fair

Interest rate swap asset 6     6  
Short-term debt   97 97
Long-term debt 1,019 1,005 995   885

     Cash and cash equivalents — All highly liquid investments purchased with an original maturity of three months or less are considered to be cash equivalents. The carrying value approximates fair value because of the short maturity of these instruments.
 
     Foreign exchange forward contracts — The company uses foreign exchange forward purchase and sale contracts with terms of one year or less to hedge its exposure to changes in foreign currency exchange rates. The fair value of foreign exchange forward contracts is based on a model which incorporates observable inputs including quoted spot rates, forward exchange rates and discounted future expected cash flows utilizing market interest rates with similar quality and maturity characteristics.
 
     Interest rate swaps — Fair values are estimated by obtaining quotes from external sources.
 
     Short-term debt and long-term debt — Fair values are based on interest rates that would be currently available to the company for issuance of similar types of debt instruments with similar terms and remaining maturities.

     On November 12, 2008, the company settled a lawsuit with the United Steel Workers with respect to certain retiree medical plan amendments for approximately $28 million. This settlement was paid in November 2008 and increased the accumulated postretirement benefit obligation (APBO) by approximately $23 million. The increase in APBO has been reflected in the company’s September 30, 2009 actuarial valuation as an increase in actuarial losses and is being amortized into periodic retiree medical expense over an average expected remaining service life of approximately ten years.
 
     On February 24, 2009 the company announced the closure of its commercial truck brakes plant in Tilbury, Ontario, Canada. All salaried and hourly employees at this facility participated in both a salaried or hourly pension plan and a retiree medical plan. The announced closure of this facility triggered plan curtailments requiring remeasurement of each plan. The measurement date of these valuations was February 28, 2009. The FASB’s retirement benefits guidance requires a plan curtailment loss to be recognized in earnings when it is probable a curtailment will occur and the effects are reasonably estimable. The company recognized plan curtailment losses of approximately $16 million, including pension termination benefits of approximately $14 million required to be paid under the terms of the plans and $2 million of retiree medical benefits. The charges were recorded in restructuring costs (see Note 6) in the consolidated statement of operations.
 
19. Contingencies
 
   Environmental
 
     Federal, state and local requirements relating to the discharge of substances into the environment, the disposal of hazardous wastes and other activities affecting the environment have, and will continue to have, an impact on the operations of the company. The process of estimating environmental liabilities is complex and dependent upon evolving physical and scientific data at the sites, uncertainties as to remedies and technologies to be used and the outcome of discussions with regulatory agencies. The company records liabilities for environmental issues in the accounting period in which they are considered to be probable and the cost can be reasonably estimated. At environmental sites in which more than one potentially responsible party has been identified, the company records a liability for its allocable share of costs related to its involvement with the site, as well as an allocable share of costs related to insolvent parties or unidentified shares. At environmental sites in which ArvinMeritor is the only potentially responsible party, the company records a liability for the total probable and estimable costs of remediation before consideration of recovery from insurers or other third parties.

ARVINMERITOR, INC.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
 
     The company has been designated as a potentially responsible party at eight Superfund sites, excluding sites as to which the company’s records disclose no involvement or as to which the company’s liability has been finally determined. Management estimates the total reasonably possible costs the company could incur for the remediation of Superfund sites at June 30, 2010 to be approximately $20 million, of which $3 million is recorded as a liability.
 
     In addition to the Superfund sites, various other lawsuits, claims and proceedings have been asserted against the company, alleging violations of federal, state and local environmental protection requirements, or seeking remediation of alleged environmental impairments, principally at previously disposed-of properties. For these matters, management has estimated the total reasonably possible costs the company could incur at June 30, 2010 to be approximately $37 million, of which $16 million is recorded as a liability.
 
     Included in the company’s environmental liabilities are costs for on-going operation, maintenance and monitoring at environmental sites in which remediation has been put into place. This liability is discounted using a discount rate of five-percent and is approximately $7 million at June 30, 2010. The undiscounted estimate of these costs is approximately $11 million.
 
     Following are the components of the Superfund and non-Superfund environmental reserves (in millions):
 
Superfund Sites       Non-Superfund Sites       Total  
Balance at September 30, 2009           $    2                     $    15           $       17
Changes in cost estimates   1     5 6
Payments and other   (4 )   (4 )
Balance at June 30, 2010 $ 3 $ 16 $ 19  
 
     The actual amount of costs or damages for which the company may be held responsible could materially exceed the foregoing estimates because of uncertainties, including the financial condition of other potentially responsible parties, the success of the remediation, discovery of new contamination and other factors that make it difficult to predict actual costs accurately. However, based on management’s assessment, after consulting with outside advisors that specialize in environmental matters, and subject to the difficulties inherent in estimating these future costs, the company believes that its expenditures for environmental capital investment and remediation necessary to comply with present regulations governing environmental protection and other expenditures for the resolution of environmental claims will not have a material adverse effect on the company’s business, financial condition or results of operations. In addition, in future periods, new laws and regulations, changes in remediation plans, advances in technology and additional information about the ultimate clean-up remedies could significantly change the company’s estimates. Management cannot assess the possible effect of compliance with future requirements.
 
   Asset Retirement Obligations
 
     The company has identified conditional asset retirement obligations for which a reasonable estimate of fair value could not be made because the potential settlement dates cannot be determined at this time. Due to the long term, productive nature of the company’s manufacturing operations, absent plans or expectations of plans to initiate asset retirement activities, the company was not able to reasonably estimate the settlement date for the related obligations. Therefore, the company has not recognized conditional asset retirement obligations for which there are no plans or expectations of plans to retire the asset.
 
   Asbestos
 
     Maremont Corporation (“Maremont”), a subsidiary of ArvinMeritor, manufactured friction products containing asbestos from 1953 through 1977, when it sold its friction product business. Arvin Industries, Inc., a predecessor of the company, acquired Maremont in 1986. Maremont and many other companies are defendants in suits brought by individuals claiming personal injuries as a result of exposure to asbestos-containing products. Maremont had approximately 26,000 pending asbestos-related claims at June 30, 2010 and September 30, 2009. Although Maremont has been named in these cases, in the cases where actual injury has been alleged, very few claimants have established that a Maremont product caused their injuries. Plaintiffs’ lawyers often sue dozens or even hundreds of defendants in individual lawsuits on behalf of hundreds or thousands of claimants, seeking damages against all named defendants irrespective of the disease or injury and irrespective of any causal connection with a particular product. For these reasons, Maremont does not consider the number of claims filed or the damages alleged to be a meaningful factor in determining its asbestos-related liability.

     Maremont’s asbestos-related reserves and corresponding asbestos-related recoveries are summarized as follows (in millions):
 
June 30, 2010       September 30, 2009
Asbestos-related reserves for pending and future claims $     61 $     61
Asbestos-related insurance recoveries 43 43

     A portion of the asbestos-related recoveries and reserves are included in Other Current Assets and Liabilities, with the majority of the amounts recorded in Other Assets and Liabilities (see Notes 11, 13, 14 and 15).
 
     Prior to February 2001, Maremont participated in the Center for Claims Resolution (“CCR”) and shared with other CCR members in the payment of defense and indemnity costs for asbestos-related claims. The CCR handled the resolution and processing of asbestos claims on behalf of its members until February 2001, when it was reorganized and discontinued negotiating shared settlements. Since the CCR was reorganized in 2001, Maremont has handled asbestos-related claims through its own defense counsel and has taken a more aggressive defensive approach that involves examining the merits of each asbestos-related claim. Although the company expects legal defense costs to continue at higher levels than when it participated in the CCR, the company believes its litigation strategy has reduced the average indemnity cost per claim.
 
     Pending and Future Claims: Maremont engages Bates White LLC (Bates White), a consulting firm with extensive experience estimating costs associated with asbestos litigation, to assist with determining the estimated cost of resolving pending and future asbestos-related claims that have been, and could reasonably be expected to be, filed against Maremont. Bates White prepares these cost estimates on a semi-annual basis in March and September each year. Although it is not possible to estimate the full range of costs because of various uncertainties, Bates White advised Maremont that it would be possible to determine an estimate of a reasonable forecast of the cost of the probable settlement and defense costs of resolving pending and future asbestos-related claims, based on historical data and certain assumptions with respect to events that may occur in the future.
 
     Bates White provided an estimate of the reasonably possible range of Maremont’s obligation for asbestos personal injury claims over the next ten years of $57 million to $64 million. After consultation with Bates White, Maremont determined that as of March 31, 2010 the most likely and probable liability for pending and future claims over the next ten years is $57 million. The ultimate cost of resolving pending and future claims is estimated based on the history of claims and expenses for plaintiffs represented by law firms in jurisdictions with an established history with Maremont.
 
     Assumptions: The following assumptions were made by Maremont after consultation with Bates White and are included in their study:
     Recoveries: Maremont has insurance that reimburses a substantial portion of the costs incurred defending against asbestos-related claims. The coverage also reimburses Maremont for any indemnity paid on those claims. The coverage is provided by several insurance carriers based on insurance agreements in place. Incorporating historical information with respect to buy-outs and settlements of coverage, and excluding any policies in dispute, the insurance receivable related to asbestos-related liabilities is $43 million as of June 30, 2010 and September 30, 2009. The difference between the estimated liability and insurance receivable is primarily related to proceeds received from settled insurance policies. Certain insurance policies have been settled in cash prior to the ultimate settlement of the related asbestos liabilities. Amounts received from insurance settlements generally reduce recorded insurance receivables. Receivables for policies in dispute are not recorded.

     The amounts recorded for the asbestos-related reserves and recoveries from insurance companies are based upon assumptions and estimates derived from currently known facts. All such estimates of liabilities and recoveries for asbestos-related claims are subject to considerable uncertainty because such liabilities and recoveries are influenced by variables that are difficult to predict. The future litigation environment for Maremont could change significantly from its past experience, due, for example, to changes in the mix of claims filed against Maremont in terms of plaintiffs’ law firm, jurisdiction and disease; legislative or regulatory developments; Maremont’s approach to defending claims; or payments to plaintiffs from other defendants. Estimated recoveries are influenced by coverage issues among insurers and the continuing solvency of various insurance companies. If the assumptions with respect to the nature of pending and future claims, the cost to resolve claims and the amount of available insurance prove to be incorrect, the actual amount of liability for Maremont’s asbestos-related claims, and the effect on the company, could differ materially from current estimates and, therefore, could have a material impact on the company’s financial condition and results of operations.
 
     Rockwell International (Rockwell) — ArvinMeritor, along with many other companies, has also been named as a defendant in lawsuits alleging personal injury as a result of exposure to asbestos used in certain components of Rockwell products many years ago. Liability for these claims was transferred to the company at the time of the spin-off of the automotive business to Meritor from Rockwell in 1997. Currently there are thousands of claimants in lawsuits that name the company, together with many other companies, as defendants. However, the company does not consider the number of claims filed or the damages alleged to be a meaningful factor in determining asbestos-related liabilities. A significant portion of the claims do not identify any of Rockwell’s products or specify which of the claimants, if any, were exposed to asbestos attributable to Rockwell’s products, and past experience has shown that the vast majority of the claimants will likely never identify any of Rockwell’s products. For those claimants who do show that they worked with Rockwell’s products, management, nevertheless, believes it has meritorious defenses, in substantial part due to the integrity of the products involved and the lack of any impairing medical condition on the part of many claimants. The company defends these cases vigorously. Historically, ArvinMeritor has been dismissed from the vast majority of similar claims filed in the past with no payment to claimants.
 
     The company engages Bates White to assist with determining whether it would be possible to estimate the cost of resolving pending and future Rockwell legacy asbestos-related claims that have been, and could reasonably be expected to be, filed against the company. Although it is not possible to estimate the full range of costs because of various uncertainties, Bates White advised the company that it would be able to determine an estimate of probable defense and indemnity costs which could be incurred to resolve pending and future Rockwell legacy asbestos-related claims. The company has recorded a $16 million liability for defense and indemnity costs associated with these claims at both June 30, 2010 and September 30, 2009. The accrual estimates are based on historical data and certain assumptions with respect to events that may occur in the future. The uncertainties of asbestos claim litigation and resolution of the litigation with the insurance companies make it difficult to predict accurately the ultimate resolution of asbestos claims. That uncertainty is increased by the possibility of adverse rulings or new legislation affecting asbestos claim litigation or the settlement process.
 
     Rockwell maintained insurance coverage that management believes covers indemnity and defense costs, over and above self-insurance retentions, for most of these claims. The company has initiated claims against these carriers to enforce the insurance policies. The company expects to recover some portion of defense and indemnity costs it has incurred to date, over and above self-insured retentions, and some portion of the costs for defending asbestos claims going forward. Accordingly, the company has recorded an insurance receivable related to Rockwell legacy asbestos-related liabilities of $12 million at June 30, 2010 and September 30, 2009. If the assumptions with respect to the nature of pending claims, the cost to resolve claims and the amount of available insurance prove to be incorrect, the actual amount of liability for Rockwell asbestos-related claims, and the effect on the company, could differ materially from current estimates and, therefore, could have a material impact on the company’s financial condition and results of operations.
 
   Indemnifications
 
     The company has provided indemnifications in conjunction with certain transactions, primarily divestitures. These indemnities address a variety of matters, which may include environmental, tax, asbestos and employment-related matters, and the periods of indemnification vary in duration. The company’s maximum obligations under these indemnifications, other than those discussed in Note 4, cannot be reasonably estimated. Except for the indemnifications discussed in Note 4, the company is not aware of any claims or other information that would give rise to material payments under such indemnifications.

     On March 31, 2008, S&E Quick Lube, a filter distributor, filed suit in U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut alleging that twelve filter manufacturers, including a prior subsidiary of the company, engaged in a conspiracy to fix prices, rig bids and allocate U.S. customers for aftermarket automotive filters. This suit is a purported class action on behalf of direct purchasers of filters from the defendants. Several parallel purported class actions, including on behalf of indirect purchasers of filters, have been filed by other plaintiffs in a variety of jurisdictions in the United States and Canada. On April 16, 2009, the Attorney General of the State of Florida filed a complaint with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois based on these same allegations. On May 25, 2010, the Office of the Attorney General for the State of Washington informed the company that it also was investigating the allegations raised in these suits. The company intends to vigorously defend the claims raised in all of these actions. The company is unable to estimate a range of exposure, if any, at this time.
 
     Various other lawsuits, claims and proceedings have been or may be instituted or asserted against the company, relating to the conduct of the company’s business, including those pertaining to product liability, warranty or recall claims, intellectual property, safety and health, contract and employment matters. Although the outcome of other litigation cannot be predicted with certainty, and some lawsuits, claims or proceedings may be disposed of unfavorably to the company, management believes the disposition of matters that are pending will not have a material adverse effect on the company’s business, financial condition or results of operations.
 
20. Business Segment Information
 
     The company defines its operating segments as components of its business where separate financial information is available and is evaluated regularly by the chief operating decision maker in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing performance. The company’s chief operating decision maker (CODM) is the Chief Executive Officer.
 
     As a result of the divestitures described in Note 4, LVS now consists primarily of Body Systems’ business, composed of roofs and doors products. In order to better reflect the importance of the company’s remaining core commercial vehicle businesses and a much smaller LVS business and to reflect the manner in which management reviews information regarding the business, the company revised its reporting segments in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009 as follows:
27
 


ARVINMERITOR, INC.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
 
     The company refers to its three segments other than LVS as, collectively, its “Core Business”. All prior period amounts have been recast to reflect the revised reporting segments.
 
     The company measures segment operating performance based on net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to ArvinMeritor, Inc. before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, loss on sale of receivables, restructuring expenses and asset impairment charges (Segment EBITDA). The company uses Segment EBITDA as the primary basis for the CODM to evaluate the performance of each of the company’s reportable segments. In the second quarter of fiscal year 2010, the company changed its definition of Segment EBITDA to additionally exclude restructuring expenses and asset impairment charges. This change is consistent with how the CODM currently measures segment performance. All prior period amounts have been recast to reflect this change.
 
     The accounting policies of the segments are the same as those applied in the Consolidated Financial Statements, except for the use of Segment EBITDA. The company may allocate certain common costs, primarily corporate functions, between the segments differently than the company would for stand alone financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. These allocated costs include expenses for shared services such as information technology, finance, communications, legal and human resources. The company does not allocate interest expense and certain legacy and other corporate costs not directly associated with the Segments’ EBITDA. In anticipation of the planned separation of the light vehicles business from the company, LVS started building its own corporate functions during the second half of fiscal year 2008 and, therefore, only a nominal amount of corporate costs has been allocated to LVS in fiscal year 2009 and no amounts have been allocated to LVS in fiscal year 2010.

21. Subsequent Events
 
     On August 3, 2010, the company entered into an agreement to sell its Body Systems business to an affiliate of Inteva Products, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Renco Group, Inc., a New York company. The transaction is subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. The purchase price is approximately $35 million, including $20 million in cash at closing and a promissory note for $15 million and excluding potential adjustments for items such as working capital fluctuations. Upon signing, $10 million of the purchase price was placed in escrow pending closing of the sale process. The company’s goal is to complete the sale by the end of calendar year 2010, subject to receiving regulatory approval and other pre-closing matters. The Body Systems business is expected to be presented in discontinued operations in the company’s consolidated financial statements at September 30, 2010.
 
22. Supplemental Guarantor Condensed Consolidating Financial Statements
 
     Certain of the company’s wholly-owned subsidiaries, as defined in the credit agreement (the Guarantors) irrevocably and unconditionally guarantee amounts outstanding under the senior secured revolving credit facility. Similar subsidiary guarantees were provided for the benefit of the holders of the publicly-held notes outstanding under the company’s indentures (see Note 16).
 
     In lieu of providing separate financial statements for the Guarantors, the company has included the accompanying condensed consolidating financial statements. These condensed consolidating financial statements are presented on the equity method. Under this method, the investments in subsidiaries are recorded at cost and adjusted for the parent’s share of the subsidiary’s cumulative results of operations, capital contributions and distributions and other equity changes. The Guarantor subsidiaries are combined in the condensed consolidating financial statements.
