NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Tabular data dollars in millions, except per share amounts

 

1.              Change in Accounting Method

 

Effective January 1, 2012, the Company elected to change the method of valuing U.S. inventories to the average cost method, while in prior years these inventories were valued using the last-in, first-out (“LIFO”) method.  The Company believes the average cost method is preferable as it conforms the inventory costing methods globally, improves comparability with industry peers and better reflects the current value of inventory on the consolidated balance sheets. All prior periods presented have been adjusted to apply the new method retrospectively.

 

The effect of the change on the condensed consolidated results of operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 is as follows:

Had the Company not made this change in accounting method, manufacturing, shipping and delivery expense for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 would have been $6 million lower and net earnings attributable to the Company would have been $6 million higher than reported in the condensed consolidated results of operations. In addition, both basic and diluted earnings per share would have been $0.04 higher.

Options to purchase 956,580 and 462,037 weighted average shares of common stock which were outstanding during the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively, were not included in the computation of diluted earnings per share because the options’ exercise price was greater than the average market price of the common shares.

 

The 2015 Exchangeable Notes have a dilutive effect only in those periods in which the Company’s average stock price exceeds the exchange price of $47.47 per share.  For the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, the Company’s average stock price did not exceed the exchange price.  Therefore, the potentially issuable shares resulting from the settlement of the 2015 Exchangeable Notes were not included in the calculation of diluted earnings per share.

7.  Contingencies

 

The Company is a defendant in numerous lawsuits alleging bodily injury and death as a result of exposure to asbestos dust.  From 1948 to 1958, one of the Company’s former business units commercially produced and sold approximately $40 million of a high-temperature, calcium-silicate based pipe and block insulation material containing asbestos.  The Company exited the pipe and block insulation business in April 1958.  The typical asbestos personal injury lawsuit alleges various theories of liability, including negligence, gross negligence and strict liability and seek compensatory and in some cases, punitive damages in various amounts (herein referred to as “asbestos claims”).

 

As of March 31, 2012, the Company has determined that it is a named defendant in asbestos lawsuits and claims involving approximately 4,700 plaintiffs and claimants.  Based on an analysis of the lawsuits pending as of December 31, 2011, approximately 71% of plaintiffs either do not specify the monetary damages sought, or in the case of court filings, claim an amount sufficient to invoke the jurisdictional minimum of the trial court.  Approximately 27% of plaintiffs specifically plead damages of $15 million or less, and 2% of plaintiffs specifically plead damages greater than $15 million but less than $100 million.  Fewer than 1% of plaintiffs specifically plead damages $100 million or greater but less than $122 million.

 

As indicated by the foregoing summary, current pleading practice permits considerable variation in the assertion of monetary damages.  The Company’s experience resolving hundreds of thousands of asbestos claims and lawsuits over an extended period demonstrates that the monetary relief that may be alleged in a complaint bears little relevance to a claim’s merits or disposition value.  Rather, the amount potentially recoverable is determined by such factors as the severity of the plaintiff’s asbestos disease, the product identification evidence against the Company and other defendants, the defenses available to the Company and other defendants, the specific jurisdiction in which the claim is made, and the plaintiff’s medical history and exposure to other disease-causing agents.

 

In addition to the pending claims set forth above, the Company has claims-handling agreements in place with many plaintiffs’ counsel throughout the country.  These agreements require evaluation and negotiation regarding whether particular claimants qualify under the criteria established by such agreements. The criteria for such claims include verification of a compensable illness and a reasonable probability of exposure to a product manufactured by the Company’s former business unit during its manufacturing period ending in 1958.  Some plaintiffs’ counsel have historically withheld claims under these agreements for later presentation while focusing their attention on active litigation in the tort system.  The Company believes that as of March 31, 2012 there are approximately 350 claims against other defendants

 

13



 

which are likely to be asserted some time in the future against the Company. These claims are not included in the pending “lawsuits and claims” totals set forth above.

 

The Company is also a defendant in other asbestos-related lawsuits or claims involving maritime workers, medical monitoring claimants, co-defendants and property damage claimants.  Based upon its past experience, the Company believes that these categories of lawsuits and claims will not involve any material liability and they are not included in the above description of pending matters or in the following description of disposed matters.

 

Since receiving its first asbestos claim, the Company as of March 31, 2012, has disposed of the asbestos claims of approximately 388,000 plaintiffs and claimants at an average indemnity payment per claim of approximately $8,200.  Certain of these dispositions have included deferred amounts payable over a number of years.  Deferred amounts payable totaled approximately $35 million at March 31, 2012 ($18 million at December 31, 2011) and are included in the foregoing average indemnity payment per claim.  The Company’s asbestos indemnity payments have varied on a per claim basis, and are expected to continue to vary considerably over time.  As discussed above, a part of the Company’s objective is to achieve, where possible, resolution of asbestos claims pursuant to claims-handling agreements.  Failure of claimants to meet certain medical and product exposure criteria in the Company’s administrative claims handling agreements has generally reduced the number of marginal or suspect claims that would otherwise have been received.  In addition, certain courts and legislatures have reduced or eliminated the number of marginal or suspect claims that the Company otherwise would have received.  These developments generally have had the effect of increasing the Company’s per-claim average indemnity payment.

 

The Company believes that its ultimate asbestos-related liability (i.e., its indemnity payments or other claim disposition costs plus related legal fees) cannot reasonably be estimated. Beginning with the initial liability of $975 million established in 1993, the Company has accrued a total of approximately $4.0 billion through 2011, before insurance recoveries, for its asbestos-related liability.  The Company’s ability to reasonably estimate its liability has been significantly affected by, among other factors, the volatility of asbestos-related litigation in the United States, the significant number of co-defendants that have filed for bankruptcy, the magnitude and timing of co-defendant bankruptcy trust payments, the inherent uncertainty of future disease incidence and claiming patterns, the expanding list of non-traditional defendants that have been sued in this litigation, and the use of mass litigation screenings to generate large numbers of claims by parties who allege exposure to asbestos dust but have no present physical asbestos impairment.

 

The Company has continued to monitor trends that may affect its ultimate liability and has continued to analyze the developments and variables affecting or likely to affect the resolution of pending and future asbestos claims against the Company. The material components of the Company’s accrued liability are based on amounts determined by the Company in connection with its annual comprehensive review and consist of the following estimates, to the extent it is probable that such liabilities have been incurred and can be reasonably estimated: (i) the liability for asbestos claims already asserted against the Company; (ii) the liability for preexisting but unasserted asbestos claims for prior periods arising under its administrative claims-handling agreements with various plaintiffs’ counsel; (iii) the liability for asbestos claims not yet asserted against the Company, but which the Company believes will be asserted in the next several years; and (iv) the legal defense costs likely to be incurred in connection with the foregoing types of claims.

 

14



 

The significant assumptions underlying the material components of the Company’s accrual are:

 

a)  the extent to which settlements are limited to claimants who were exposed to the Company’s asbestos-containing insulation prior to its exit from that business in 1958;

 

b)  the extent to which claims are resolved under the Company’s administrative claims agreements or on terms comparable to those set forth in those agreements;

 

c)  the extent of decrease or increase in the incidence of serious disease cases and claiming patterns for such cases;

 

d)  the extent to which the Company is able to defend itself successfully at trial;

 

e)  the extent to which courts and legislatures eliminate, reduce or permit the diversion of financial resources for unimpaired claimants;

 

f)   the number and timing of additional co-defendant bankruptcies;

 

g)  the extent to which bankruptcy trusts direct resources to resolve claims that are also presented to the Company and the timing of the payments made by the bankruptcy trusts; and

 

h)  the extent to which co-defendants with substantial resources and assets continue to participate significantly in the resolution of future asbestos lawsuits and claims.

 

As noted above, the Company conducts a comprehensive review of its asbestos-related liabilities and costs annually in connection with finalizing and reporting its annual results of operations, unless significant changes in trends or new developments warrant an earlier review.  If the results of an annual comprehensive review indicate that the existing amount of the accrued liability is insufficient to cover its estimated future asbestos-related costs, then the Company will record an appropriate charge to increase the accrued liability.  The Company believes that a reasonable estimation of the probable amount of the liability for claims not yet asserted against the Company is not possible beyond a period of several years.  Therefore, while the results of future annual comprehensive reviews cannot be determined, the Company expects the addition of one year to the estimation period will result in an annual charge.

 

On March 11, 2011, the Company received a verdict in an asbestos case in which conspiracy claims had been asserted against the Company. Of the total nearly $90 million awarded by the jury against the four defendants in the case, almost $10 million in compensatory damages were assessed against all four defendants, and $40 million in punitive damages were assessed against the Company.

 

The Company continues to deny the conspiracy allegations in this case and will vigorously challenge this verdict, if necessary, in the appellate courts, and, therefore, has made no change to its asbestos-related liability as of March 31, 2012.  While the Company cannot predict the ultimate outcome of this lawsuit, the Company and other conspiracy defendants have successfully challenged jury verdicts in similar cases.

 

The Company’s reported results of operations for 2011 were materially affected by the $165 million (pretax and after tax) fourth quarter charge for asbestos-related costs and asbestos-related payments continue to be substantial.  Any future additional charge would likewise

 

15



 

materially affect the Company’s results of operations for the period in which it is recorded. Also, the continued use of significant amounts of cash for asbestos-related costs has affected and may continue to affect the Company’s cost of borrowing and its ability to pursue global or domestic acquisitions. However, the Company believes that its operating cash flows and other sources of liquidity will be sufficient to pay its obligations for asbestos-related costs and to fund its working capital and capital expenditure requirements on a short-term and long-term basis.

 

Other litigation is pending against the Company, in many cases involving ordinary and routine claims incidental to the business of the Company and in others presenting allegations that are non-routine and involve compensatory, punitive or treble damage claims as well as other types of relief.  The Company records a liability for such matters when it is both probable that the liability has been incurred and the amount of the liability can be reasonably estimated.  Recorded amounts are reviewed and adjusted to reflect changes in the factors upon which the estimates are based including additional information, negotiations, settlements, and other events.

 

8. Segment Information

 

The Company has four reportable segments based on its four geographic locations:  (1) Europe; (2) North America; (3) South America; (4) Asia Pacific.  These four segments are aligned with the Company’s internal approach to managing, reporting, and evaluating performance of its global glass operations.  Certain assets and activities not directly related to one of the regions or to glass manufacturing are reported with Retained corporate costs and other.  These include licensing, equipment manufacturing, global engineering, and non-glass equity investments.  Retained corporate costs and other also includes certain headquarters administrative and facilities costs and certain incentive compensation and other benefit plan costs that are global in nature and are not allocable to the reportable segments.

 

The Company’s measure of profit for its reportable segments is Segment Operating Profit, which consists of consolidated earnings from continuing operations before interest income, interest expense, and provision for income taxes and excludes amounts related to certain items that management considers not representative of ongoing operations as well as certain retained corporate costs.  The Company’s management uses Segment Operating Profit, in combination with net sales and selected cash flow information, to evaluate performance and to allocate resources.  Segment Operating Profit for reportable segments includes an allocation of some corporate expenses based on both a percentage of sales and direct billings based on the costs of specific services provided.

 

In prior periods, pension expense was recorded in each segment  related to the pension plans in place in that segment, with the exception of the U.S. pension plans which were recorded in Retained corporate costs and other.  Effective January 1, 2012, the Company changed the allocation of pension expense to its reportable segments such that pension expense recorded in each segment relates only to the service cost component of the plans in that segment.  The other components of pension expense, including interest cost, expected asset returns and amortization of actuarial losses, are recorded in Retained corporate costs and other.  This change in allocation has been applied retrospectively to all periods.  Also effective January 1, 2012, the Company elected to change the method of valuing U.S. inventories (see Note 1 for additional information).

The Company’s decisions to curtail selected production capacity have resulted in write downs of certain long-lived assets to the extent their carrying amounts exceeded fair value or fair value less cost to sell.  The Company classified the significant assumptions used to determine the fair value of the impaired assets, which was not material, as Level 3 in the fair value hierarchy as set forth in the general accounting principles for fair value measurements.

 

The Company also recorded liabilities for certain employee separation costs to be paid under contractual arrangements and other exit costs.

 

18



 

11.  Derivative Instruments

 

The Company has certain derivative assets and liabilities which consist of natural gas forwards and foreign exchange option and forward contracts.  The Company uses an income approach to valuing these contracts.  Natural gas forward rates and foreign exchange rates are the significant inputs into the valuation models.  These inputs are observable in active markets over the terms of the instruments the Company holds, and accordingly, the Company classifies its derivative assets and liabilities as Level 2 in the hierarchy.  The Company also evaluates counterparty risk in determining fair values.

 

Commodity Futures Contracts Designated as Cash Flow Hedges

 

In North America, the Company enters into commodity futures contracts related to forecasted natural gas requirements, the objectives of which are to limit the effects of fluctuations in the future market price paid for natural gas and the related volatility in cash flows.  The Company continually evaluates the natural gas market and related price risk and periodically enters into commodity futures contracts in order to hedge a portion of its usage requirements.  The majority of the sales volume in North America is tied to customer contracts that contain provisions that pass the price of natural gas to the customer.  In certain of these contracts, the customer has the option of fixing the natural gas price component for a specified period of time.  At March 31, 2012 and 2011, the Company had entered into commodity futures contracts covering approximately 4,600,000 MM BTUs and 8,000,000 MM BTUs, respectively, primarily related to customer requests to lock the price of natural gas.

 

The Company accounts for the above futures contracts as cash flow hedges at March 31, 2012 and recognizes them on the balance sheet at fair value. The effective portion of changes in the fair value of a derivative that is designated as, and meets the required criteria for, a cash flow hedge is recorded in the Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income component of share owners’ equity (“OCI”) and reclassified into earnings in the same period or periods during which the underlying hedged item affects earnings. At March 31, 2012 and 2011, an unrecognized loss of $6 million and $2 million, respectively, related to the commodity futures contracts was included in Accumulated OCI, and will be reclassified into earnings over the next twelve to twenty-four months.  Any material portion of the change in the fair value of a derivative designated as a cash flow hedge that is deemed to be ineffective is recognized in current earnings.  The ineffectiveness related to these natural gas hedges for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 was not material.

 

The effect of the commodity futures contracts on the results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 is as follows:

Senior Notes Designated as Net Investment Hedge

 

During December 2004, a U.S. subsidiary of the Company issued senior notes totaling €225 million.  These notes were designated by the Company’s subsidiary as a hedge of a portion of its net investment in a non-U.S. subsidiary with a Euro functional currency.  Because the amount of the senior notes matched the hedged portion of the net investment, there was no hedge ineffectiveness. Accordingly, the Company recorded the impact of changes in the foreign currency exchange rate on the Euro-denominated notes in OCI.    During the second quarter of 2011, the senior notes designated as the net investment hedge were redeemed by a subsidiary of the Company.  The amount recorded in OCI related to this net investment hedge will be reclassified into earnings when the Company sells or liquidates its net investment in the non-U.S. subsidiary.

 

The effect of the net investment hedge on the results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2011 is as follows:

Forward Exchange Contracts not Designated as Hedging Instruments

 

The Company’s subsidiaries may enter into short-term forward exchange or option agreements to purchase foreign currencies at set rates in the future. These agreements are used to limit exposure to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates for significant planned purchases of fixed assets or commodities that are denominated in currencies other than the subsidiaries’ functional currency. Subsidiaries may also use forward exchange agreements to offset the foreign currency risk for receivables and payables, including intercompany receivables and payables, not denominated in, or indexed to, their functional currencies. The Company records these short-term forward exchange agreements on the balance sheet at fair value and changes in the fair value are recognized in current earnings.

 

At March 31, 2012 and 2011, various subsidiaries of the Company had outstanding forward exchange and option agreements denominated in various currencies covering the equivalent of approximately $640 million and $881 million, respectively, related primarily to intercompany transactions and loans.

 

The effect of the forward exchange contracts on the results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 is as follows:

Balance Sheet Classification

 

The Company records the fair values of derivative financial instruments on the balance sheet as follows: (a) receivables if the instrument has a positive fair value and maturity within one year, (b) deposits, receivables, and other assets if the instrument has a positive fair value and maturity after one year, (c) other accrued liabilities or other liabilities (current) if the instrument has a negative fair value and maturity within one year, and (d) other liabilities if the instrument has a negative fair value and maturity after one year.  The following table shows the amount and classification (as noted above) of the Company’s derivatives:

13.  Income Taxes

 

The Company performs a quarterly review of the annual effective tax rate and makes changes if necessary based on new information or events. The estimated annual effective tax rate is forecasted quarterly using actual historical information and forward-looking estimates. The estimated annual effective tax rate may fluctuate due to changes in forecasted annual operating income; changes in the forecasted mix of earnings by country; changes to the valuation allowance for deferred tax assets (such changes would be recorded discretely in the quarter in which they occur); changes to actual or forecasted permanent book to tax differences (non-deductible expenses); impacts from future tax settlements with state, federal or foreign tax authorities (such changes would be recorded discretely in the quarter in which they occur); or impacts from tax law changes. To the extent such changes impact deferred tax assets/liabilities, these changes would generally be recorded discretely in the quarter in which they occur.  Additionally, the annual effective tax rate differs from the statutory U.S. Federal tax rate of 35% primarily because of valuation allowances in some jurisdictions and varying non-U.S. tax rates.

14.  Discontinued Operations

 

On October 26, 2010, the Venezuelan government, through Presidential Decree No. 7.751, expropriated the assets of Owens-Illinois de Venezuela and Fabrica de Vidrios Los Andes, C.A., two of the Company’s subsidiaries in that country, which in effect constituted a taking of the going concerns of those companies.  Shortly after the issuance of the decree, the Venezuelan government installed temporary administrative boards to control the expropriated assets.

 

Since the issuance of the decree, the Company has cooperated with the Venezuelan government, as it is compelled to do under Venezuelan law, to provide for an orderly transition while ensuring the safety and well-being of the employees and the integrity of the production facilities.  The Company has been engaged in negotiations with the Venezuelan government in relation to certain aspects of the expropriation, including the compensation payable by the government as a result of its expropriation. On September 26, 2011, the Company, having been unable to reach an agreement with the Venezuelan government regarding fair compensation, commenced an arbitration against Venezuela through the World Bank’s International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes.  The Company is unable at this stage to predict the amount, or timing of receipt, of compensation it will ultimately receive.

 

15.  Financial Information for Subsidiary Guarantors and Non-Guarantors

 

The following presents condensed consolidating financial information for the Company, segregating:  (1) Owens-Illinois, Inc., the issuer of senior debentures (the “Parent”); (2) the two subsidiaries which have guaranteed the senior debentures on a subordinated basis (the “Guarantor Subsidiaries”); and (3) all other subsidiaries (the “Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries”).  The Guarantor Subsidiaries are wholly-owned direct and indirect subsidiaries of the Company and their guarantees are full, unconditional and joint and several.  They have no operations and function only as intermediate holding companies.

 

Wholly-owned subsidiaries are presented on the equity basis of accounting.  Certain reclassifications have been made to conform all of the financial information to the financial presentation on a consolidated basis.  The principal eliminations relate to investments in subsidiaries and intercompany balances and transactions.
