SHILOH INDUSTRIES, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Dollar amounts in thousands, except per share data)
Note 1—Basis of Presentation
The condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared by Shiloh Industries, Inc. and its subsidiaries (the “Company”), without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The information furnished in the condensed consolidated financial statements includes normal recurring adjustments and reflects all adjustments, which are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair presentation of such financial statements. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been condensed or omitted pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Although the Company believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading, these condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and the notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2010.
Revenues and operating results for the nine months ended July 31, 2011 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.

Note 2—New Accounting Standards
During fiscal 2011, several new accounting standards became effective for the Company. These new standards are included in the following topics of the FASB ASC: Topic 310, “Receivables” , Topic 605 “Revenue Recognition” and Topic 220 "Comprehensive Income". The first two standards were adopted in the first quarter of fiscal 2011 and the changes did not have a material effect on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements. The last standard, "Comprehensive Income", becomes effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011 which for the Company would be the first quarter ended January 31, 2012. This standard requires that other comprehensive income be presented as either a separate statement, or as an addition to the statement of income and prohibits the presentation of other comprehensive income in the statement of shareholders' equity. As the Company has historically presented other comprehensive income as part of the statement of shareholders' equity, the Company will have to retroactively restate its financial statements for this change upon adoption of this accounting standard.

Note 3—Asset Impairment and Restructuring Charges
During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010, the Board of Directors approved the Company’s plan to purchase a plant site in Bowling Green, Kentucky for the manufacture of first operation precision blanks and other complementary products that are currently manufactured at the Company’s plant in Mansfield, Ohio. The plan also includes the transfer of other Mansfield business to the Company’s Medina Blanking facility in Valley City, Ohio. The Company will, therefore, close the operations of its Mansfield Blanking Division during fiscal 2011 as its work is relocated to these other plants. The Company is relocating certain machinery and equipment to Bowling Green or Valley City to support the ongoing business and to service the new business in the Kentucky area. As a result, during the 4th quarter of fiscal year 2010, the Company recorded an impairment charge of $2,480 to reduce long lived assets that will not be transferred to their estimated fair value. The fair value of machinery and equipment, as determined using level 3 inputs, was zero as the items are old equipment for which the Company has no further use and which have limited use and limited value in the used equipment market. The Mansfield real property was reduced by $2,095 to a fair value of $3,300 based on an independent assessment by a real estate firm that considered recent sales of similar properties, tax valuation, and replacement cost value. The Company also recorded a restructuring charge of $309 representing the curtailment of the retirement plan of Mansfield Blanking employees. The Bowling Green, Kentucky plant facility started operations in April 2011.
During the third quarter of fiscal 2011, the Company recorded a restructuring charge of $352 based on a negotiated settlement for approximately 90 employees for severance and health insurance related to the previously announced planned closure of the Company's plant in Mansfield, Ohio.
For the first nine months of fiscal 2011, the Company recorded impairment recoveries of $230 for cash received upon the sale of assets that were previously impaired.

Total cost of inventory is net of reserves to reduce certain inventory from cost to net realizable value. Such reserves aggregated $332 and $1,393 at July 31, 2011 and October 31, 2010, respectively.

The increase in raw material inventories of approximately $8,000 is related to the required purchase of raw material to support the planned bank build at the Company's Mansfield, Ohio facility. The raw material will be consumed into finished goods to build a bank of parts to supply between a two to fourteen week requirement of customer releases of inventory to facilitate the move of certain machinery and equipment from the Mansfield facility to the Company's Bowling Green, Kentucky facility and for the planned closure of operations during fiscal 2011. The remaining increase of raw materials of approximately $3,900 is a result of increased sales volumes along with increased sales with steel ownership.

The increase in tooling inventories of $3,890 is for customer reimbursed production tooling related to new program awards that go into production in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 and throughout fiscal 2012.

The weighted average interest rate of all debt was 3.01% and 6.94% for the nine months ended July 31, 2011 and July 31, 2010, respectively.
On August 1, 2008, the Company entered into a credit agreement with a syndicate of lenders with PNC Bank National Association, successor of National City Bank, as co-lead arranger, sole book runner and administrative agent and The Privatebank and Trust Company as co-lead arranger and syndication agent. The initial agreement provided the Company with a revolving line of credit up to $120 million with the opportunity to borrow up to an additional $80 million at the current market rates. The Credit Agreement also established limits for additional borrowings, dividends, investments, acquisitions or mergers and sales of assets.
On September 1, 2010, the Company entered into a Fifth Amendment Agreement (the “Fifth Amendment”) of the Credit Agreement. The Fifth Amendment provided the Company with a revolving line of credit up to $80 million through July 31, 2012. The Company also had the opportunity to borrow up to an additional $80 million, at the current market rates. The Company was permitted to prepay the borrowings under the revolving credit facility without penalty. Under the Fifth Amendment, the Company had the option to select the applicable interest rate based upon two indices – a Base Rate, a daily rate based on the highest of the prime rate, the Federal Funds Open Rate plus one-half of one percent or the daily Libor Rate plus one percent, as defined in the Fifth Amendment, or the Eurodollar Rate, as defined in the Fifth Amendment. The selected index is combined with a designated margin from an agreed upon pricing matrix.
On April 19, 2011, the Company entered into an amended and restated Credit and Security Agreement (the “Agreement”) with a syndicate of lenders led by The Privatebank and Trust Company, as co-lead arranger, sole book runner and administrative agent and PNC Capital Markets, LLC as co-lead arranger and PNC Bank, National Association, as syndication agent. The Agreement amends and restates in its entirety the Company’s Credit Agreement, dated as of August 1, 2008.
The Agreement has a five-year term and provides for an $80 million secured revolving line of credit (which may be increased up to $120 million subject to the Company’s pro forma compliance with financial covenants, the administrative agent’s approval and the Company obtaining commitments for such increase). The Company is permitted to prepay the borrowings under the revolving credit facility without penalty.
Borrowings under the Agreement bear interest, at the Company’s option, at the London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) or the base (or “prime”) rate established from time to time by the administrative agent, in each case plus an applicable margin set forth in a matrix based on the Company’s leverage ratio. In addition to interest charges, the Company will pay in arrears a quarterly commitment fee ranging from 0.375% - 0.750% based on the Company’s daily revolving exposure. At July 31, 2011, the interest rate for the credit facility was 2.69% for Eurodollar rate loans and 4.25% for base rate loans.
The Agreement contains customary restrictive and financial covenants, including covenants regarding the Company’s outstanding indebtedness and maximum leverage and fixed charge coverage ratios, The Agreement specifies that the leverage ratio shall not exceed 2.25 to 1.00 to the conclusion of the Agreement. Also, the Agreement specifies that the fixed charge ratio shall not be less than 2.50 to 1.00 to the conclusion of the Agreement. The Company was in compliance with the financial covenants as of July 31, 2011.
The Agreement specifies that upon the occurrence of an event or condition deemed to have a material adverse effect on the business or operations of the Company, as determined by the administrative agent of the lending syndicate or the required lenders, as defined as 51% of the aggregate commitment under the Agreement, the outstanding borrowings become due and payable at the option of the required lenders. The Company does not anticipate at this time any change in business

conditions or operations that could be deemed a material adverse effect by the lenders.
After considering letters of credit of $1,748 that the Company has issued, available funds under the Credit Agreement were $47,702 at July 31, 2011.
Borrowings under the Agreement are collateralized by a first priority security interest in substantially all of the tangible and intangible property of the Company and its domestic subsidiaries and 65% of the stock of foreign subsidiaries.
In July 2011, the Company entered into a finance agreement with an insurance broker for various insurance policies that bears interest at a fixed rate of 2.67% and requires monthly payments of $65 through April 2012. As of July 31, 2011, $730 remained outstanding under this agreement and was classified as current debt in the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets.
In June 2004, the Company issued a $2,000 promissory note to the State of Ohio related to specific machinery and equipment at one of the Company’s Ohio facilities. The promissory note bears interest at 1% for the first year of the term and 3% per annum for the balance of the term, with interest only payments for the first year of the term. Principal payments began in August 2005 in the amount of $25, and monthly principal payments continued increasing annually thereafter until July 2011, when the loan matured. The balance due the State of Ohio at July 31, 2011 and October 31, 2010 was $0 and $270, respectively.

The Company made contributions of $3,662 to the defined benefit pension plans during the nine months ended July 31, 2011. The Company expects contributions to be $794 for the remainder of fiscal 2011.


Note 8—Equity Matters
For the Company, FASB ASC Topic 718 “Compensation – Stock Compensation” affects the stock options that have been granted and requires the Company to expense share-based payment (“SBP”) awards with compensation cost for SBP transactions measured at fair value. The Company has elected to use the simplified method of calculating the expected term of the stock options and historical volatility to compute fair value under the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. The risk-free rate for periods within the contractual life of the option is based on the U.S. zero coupon Treasury yield in effect at the time of grant. Forfeitures have been estimated based upon the Company’s historical experience.

1993 Key Employee Stock Incentive Plan
The Company maintains the Amended and Restated 1993 Key Employee Stock Incentive Program (as amended and restated December 12, 2002 and December 10, 2009) (the “Incentive Plan”), which authorizes grants to officers and other key employees of the Company and its subsidiaries of (i) stock options that are intended to qualify as incentive stock options, (ii) nonqualified stock options and (iii) restricted stock awards. An aggregate of 2,700,000 shares of Common Stock, subject to adjustment upon occurrence of certain events to prevent dilution or expansion of the rights of participants that might otherwise result from the occurrence of such events, has been reserved for issuance pursuant to the Incentive Plan. An individual’s award is limited to 500,000 shares in a five-year period.

Non-qualified stock options and incentive stock options have been granted to date and all options have been granted at market price at the date of grant. Options expire over a period not to exceed ten years from the date of grant and vest ratably over a three year period. In December 2010 options to purchase 154,000 shares were awarded to several officers and employees at an exercise price of $12.04 for stock options that are intended to qualify as incentive stock options and $13.24 for nonqualified stock options. The fair values of these options were estimated at the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model with the following weighted average assumptions used for grants awarded during fiscal year 2011:

At July 31, 2011 and 2010, the exercise price of some of the Company’s stock option grants was higher than the market value of the Company’s stock. These grants are excluded from the computation of aggregate intrinsic value of the Company’s outstanding and exercisable stock options.

For the three and nine months ended July 31, 2011, the Company recorded compensation expense related to stock options currently vesting, effectively reducing income before taxes by $213 and $586, respectively. For the three and nine months ended July 31, 2010, the Company recorded compensation expense related to stock options currently vesting, effectively reducing income before taxes and net income by $128 and $518, respectively. For both the three months ended July 31, 2011 and July 31, 2010, the impact on earnings per share was a reduction of $.01 per share basic and diluted. For both the nine months ended July 31, 2011 and July 31, 2010, the impact on earnings per share was a reduction of $.02 per share basic and diluted. The total compensation cost related to unvested awards not yet recognized is expected to be a combined total of $1,312 over the next three fiscal years.

Earnings per Share
Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing net income available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of shares of Common Stock outstanding during the period. In addition, the shares of Common Stock issuable pursuant to stock options outstanding under the Incentive Plan are included in the diluted earnings per share calculation to the extent they are dilutive.

For the three and nine month periods ended July 31, 2011, 94,824 and 73,913, respectively, stock options were excluded from the computation of diluted earnings per share because they were anti-dilutive. For the three and nine months ended July 31, 2010, stock options of 147,000 and 483,705 were excluded from the computation of diluted earnings per share because they were anti-dilutive. The following is a reconciliation of the numerator and denominator of the basic and diluted earnings per share computation for net income per share:

In addition to the reported amounts of net income for the nine months ended July 31, 2011 and 2010, comprehensive income includes the effect of tax adjustments of $(114) and $(99), respectively, to adjust the estimated deferred taxes associated with the pension adjustments included in accumulated other comprehensive income.
 
Note 9—Fair Value of Financial Instruments
The carrying amounts of cash and cash equivalents, trade receivables and payables approximate fair value because of the short maturity of those instruments. The carrying value of the Company’s debt is considered to approximate the fair value of these instruments based on the borrowing rates currently available to the Company for loans with similar terms and maturities.

Note 10—Commitments and Contingencies
The Company is a party to certain lawsuits and claims arising in the normal course of its business. In the opinion of management, the Company’s liability or recovery, if any, under pending litigation and claims would not materially affect its financial condition, results of operations or cash flow.

Item 2.
Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

(Dollars in thousands, except per share data)

General

Shiloh is a supplier of numerous parts to both automobile original equipment manufactures (“OEMs”) and, as a Tier II supplier, to Tier I automotive part manufacturers who in turn supply OEMs. The parts that the Company produces supply many models of vehicles manufactured by nearly all vehicle manufacturers that produce vehicles in North America. As a result, the Company’s revenues are heavily dependent upon the North American production of automobiles and light trucks, particularly production of traditional domestic manufacturers, such as General Motors, Chrysler and Ford. According to industry statistics, traditional domestic manufacturer production for the first nine months of fiscal 2011 increased by 12.7% and total North American car and light truck production for the first nine months of fiscal 2011 increased by 7.0%, in each case compared with production for the first nine months of fiscal 2010. The continued viability of the traditional domestic manufacturers is critical to the profitability of the Company.

Another significant factor affecting the Company’s revenues is the Company’s ability to successfully bid on the production and supply of parts for models that will be newly introduced to the market by the OEMs. These new model introductions typically go through a start of production phase with build levels that are higher than normal because the consumer supply network is filled to ensure adequate supply to the market, resulting in an increase in the Company’s revenues for related parts at the beginning of the cycle.

Plant utilization levels are very important to profitability because of the capital-intensive nature of the Company’s operations. At July 31, 2011, the Company’s facilities were operating at approximately 46.5%, compared to 41.0% capacity at July 31, 2010. The Company defines capacity as 20 working hours per day and five days per week (i.e. 3-shift operation). Utilization of capacity is dependent upon the releases against customer purchase orders that are used to establish production schedules and manpower and equipment requirements for each month and quarterly period of the fiscal year.

The significant majority of the steel purchased by the Company’s stamping and engineered welded blank operations is purchased through the customers’ steel programs. Under these programs, the customer negotiates the price for steel with the steel suppliers. The Company pays for the steel based on these negotiated prices and passes on those costs to the customer. Although the Company takes ownership of the steel, the customers are responsible for all steel price fluctuations under these programs. The Company also purchases steel directly from domestic primary steel producers and steel service centers. Domestic steel pricing has generally been rising on increased demand. Finally, the Company blanks and processes steel for some of its customers on a toll processing basis. Under these arrangements, the Company charges a tolling fee for the operations that it performs without acquiring ownership of the steel and being burdened with the attendant costs of ownership and risk of loss. Toll processing operations result in lower revenues but higher gross margins than operations where the Company takes ownership of the steel. Revenues from operations involving directly owned steel include a component of raw material cost whereas toll processing revenues do not.

Engineered scrap steel is a planned by-product of the Company’s processing operations and part of our quoted cost to each customer. Net proceeds from the disposition of scrap steel contribute to gross margin by offsetting the increases in the cost of steel and the attendant costs of quality and availability. Changes in the price of steel impact the Company’s results of operations because raw material costs are by far the largest component of cost of sales in processing directly owned steel. The Company actively manages its exposure to changes in the price of steel, and, in most instances, passes along the rising price of steel to its customers.

Company’s Response to Current Economic Conditions Affecting the Automotive Industry

The production of cars and light trucks for fiscal year 2011 in North America according to industry forecasts (published by CSM Worldwide), is currently predicted to increase to 12,635,000 units, which reflects an improvement of 6.9% over fiscal year 2010’s vehicle production of 11,820,000 units. The increased production volume predicted for fiscal year 2011 is still 15.4% below the industry average production for the years 2005 to 2008 of 14,928,000 units. The first nine months of fiscal year 2011’s improved vehicle production includes the initial recovery from the impact of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami and reflects an improvement in economic conditions and consumer demand. However, the automotive industry’s recovery over the past several quarters remains susceptible to the impacts that consumer income and confidence levels, housing sales, gasoline prices, automobile discount and incentive offers, and perceptions about global economic stability have on consumer spending.
The Company continues its approach of monitoring closely the customer release volumes as the overall outlook for the global economy has begun to soften amid concerns of continued high levels of unemployment and geopolitical unrest. These uncertainties may impact the sustainability of improved forecasted production volumes. Also, although concerns are diminishing, production levels remain susceptible to the impact that the earthquake and tsunami in Japan may still have on the availability of components and raw materials.

The Company continues to follow its previously implemented action plans to respond to changes in customer production volumes. These include:
 
Challenging customer releases. The Company’s production scheduling is based on releases that are received weekly for thirteen week periods. The releases drive manning levels and inventory purchases. The Company’s operations personnel review the releases each week to ensure that the releases are not overly optimistic, a problem that seems to impact Tier I customers and not OEM manufacturing plants.

Inventory orders. The Company’s operations personnel monitor daily the ordering and receipt of production material to ensure that inventory will be readily consumed in the manufacturing process and that cash outlays for purchases coincide with receipts for sale of parts to the Company’s customers.

Manning levels. The Company’s operations personnel also monitor daily the level of personnel required to fulfill the production schedule by operating the equipment that produces the parts (direct personnel) and to support the direct personnel efforts (indirect, technical, and administrative staff). Manning is reviewed daily to react as necessary.

Discretionary spending in support of operations. The Company’s operating personnel also monitor the spending required for repair and maintenance, purchases of supplies consumed in operating production equipment and indirect support of operations, such as material handling equipment and utilities.

These daily activities are factored into forecasts for each plant for the balance of the fiscal year. The plant forecasts are consolidated to provide forecasts of operating results on a weekly and monthly basis, updated weekly to reflect the latest developments in terms of customer intelligence and new awards of business. This process is intended to address the cash needs of the Company considering capital asset and tooling needs related to new business as well as ongoing cash requirements for operations, payroll, pension contributions, debt repayment requirements, contingencies and other matters.

All of the above actions are intended to ensure that controllable variable spending is in line with the forecast of sales as indicated by the customer releases against open purchase orders. Actions are also initiated to monitor selling, general and administrative costs as well.

The Company also assesses the level of working capital risk with each customer by monitoring accounts receivable and payable levels to ensure that net balances are either equal or in favor of the Company. The Company also reviews compliance of the Company’s customers with terms and conditions of their purchase orders and gathers market intelligence on the customers to consider in assessing any risk in the collection process.

The Company has also evaluated plant operations in relation to our customers’ respective geographic footprints. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010, the Board of Directors approved the Company’s plan to purchase a plant site in Bowling Green, Kentucky for the manufacture of first operation precision blanks and other complementary products that are currently manufactured at the Company’s Mansfield, Ohio plant. The plan also includes the transfer of other Mansfield business to the Company’s Medina Blanking facility in Valley City, OH. The Company will, therefore, close the operations of its Mansfield Blanking Division during fiscal 2011 as its work is relocated to these other plants. The Company is relocating

13


certain machinery and equipment to Bowling Green or Valley City to support the ongoing business and to service the new business in the Kentucky area. As a result, during the 4thquarter of fiscal year 2010, the Company recorded an impairment charge of $2,480 to reduce long lived assets that will not be transferred to their estimated fair value. The fair value of machinery and equipment, as determined using level 3 inputs, was zero as the items are old equipment for which the Company has no further use and it has limited use and limited value in the used equipment market. The Mansfield real property was reduced by $2,095 to a fair value of $3,300 based on an independent assessment by a real estate firm that considered recent sales of similar properties, tax valuation, and replacement cost value. The Company also recorded a restructuring charge of $309 representing the curtailment of the retirement plan of Mansfield Blanking employees. The Bowling Green, Kentucky plant facility started operations in April 2011.
During the third quarter of fiscal 2011, the Company recorded a restructuring charge of $352 based on a negotiated settlement for approximately 90 employees for severance and health insurance related to the previously announced planned closure of the Company's plant in Mansfield, Ohio.

The steps described above demonstrate the Company’s intent to stay focused on efficient cost management, to generate cash with a focus on working capital management and capital investment efficiency and to maintain liquidity and covenant compliance with the amended and restated Credited and Security Agreement dated April 19, 2011.

Critical Accounting Policies
Preparation of the Company’s financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. The Company believes its estimates and assumptions are reasonable; however, actual results and the timing of the recognition of such amounts could differ from those estimates. The Company has identified the following items as critical accounting policies and estimates utilized by management in the preparation of the Company’s preceding financial statements. These estimates were selected because of inherent imprecision that may result from applying judgment to the estimation process. The expenses and accrued liabilities or allowances related to these policies are initially based on the Company’s best estimates at the time they are recorded. Adjustments are charged or credited to income and the related balance sheet account when actual experience differs from the expected experience underlying the estimates. The Company makes frequent comparisons of actual experience and expected experience in order to mitigate the likelihood that material adjustments will be required.

Revenue Recognition. The Company recognizes revenue both for sales from toll processing and sales of products made with Company owned steel when there is evidence of a sales agreement, the delivery of goods has occurred, the sales price is fixed or determinable and collectability of revenue is reasonably assured. The Company records revenues upon shipment of product to customers and transfer of title under standard commercial terms. Price adjustments, including those arising from resolution of quality issues, price and quantity discrepancies, surcharges for fuel and/or steel and other commercial issues are recognized in the period when management believes that such amounts become probable, based on management’s estimates.

Allowance for Doubtful Accounts. The Company evaluates the collectability of accounts receivable based on several factors. In circumstances where the Company is aware of a specific customer’s inability to meet its financial obligations, a specific allowance for doubtful accounts is recorded against amounts due to reduce the net recognized receivable to the amount the Company reasonably believes will be collected. Additionally, a general allowance for doubtful accounts is estimated based on historical experience of write-offs and the current financial condition of customers. The financial condition of the Company’s customers is dependent on, among other things, the general economic environment, which may substantially change, thereby affecting the recoverability of amounts due to the Company from its customers.

The Company carefully assesses its risk with each of its customers and considers compliance with terms and conditions, aging of the customer accounts, intelligence learned through contact with customer representatives and its net account receivable / account payable position with customers, if applicable, in establishing the allowance.

Inventory Reserves. Inventories are valued at the lower of cost or market. Cost is determined on the first-in, first-out basis. Where appropriate, standard cost systems are used to determine cost and the standards are adjusted as necessary to ensure they approximate actual costs. Estimates of lower of cost or market value of inventory are based upon current economic conditions, historical sales quantities and patterns, and in some cases, the specific risk of loss on specifically identified inventories.

The Company values inventories on a regular basis to identify inventories on hand that may be obsolete or in excess of current future projected market demand. For inventory deemed to be obsolete, the Company provides a reserve for the full value of the inventory, net of estimated realizable value. Inventory that is in excess of current and projected use is reduced by an allowance to a level that approximates future demand. Additional inventory reserves may be required if actual market conditions differ from management’s expectations.

The Company continues to monitor purchases of inventory to insure that receipts coincide with shipments, thereby reducing the economic risk of holding excessive levels of inventory that could result in long holding periods or in unsalable inventory leading to losses in conversion.

Income Taxes. The Company utilizes the asset and liability method in accounting for income taxes. Income tax expense includes U.S. and international income taxes minus tax credits and other incentives that will reduce tax expense in the year they are claimed. Deferred taxes are recognized at currently enacted tax rates for temporary differences between the financial accounting and income tax basis of assets and liabilities and operating losses and tax credit carryforwards. Valuation allowances are recorded to reduce net deferred tax assets to the amount that is more likely than not to be realized. The Company assesses both positive and negative evidence when measuring the need for a valuation allowance. Evidence typically assessed includes the operating results for the most recent three-year period and, to a lesser extent because of inherent uncertainty, the expectations of future profitability, available tax planning strategies, the time period over which the temporary differences will reverse and taxable income in prior carryback years if carryback is permitted under the tax law. The calculation

15


of the Company’s tax liabilities also involves dealing with uncertainties in the application of complex tax laws and regulations. The Company recognizes liabilities for uncertain income tax positions based on the Company’s estimate of whether, and the extent to which, additional taxes will be required. The Company reports interest and penalties related to uncertain income tax positions as income taxes.

Impairment of Long-lived Assets. The Company has historically performed an annual impairment analysis of long-lived assets, which only includes property, plant and equipment since the Company has no intangible assets. However, when significant events, which meet the definition of a “triggering event” in the context of assessing asset impairments, occur within the industry or within the Company’s primary customer base, an interim impairment analysis is performed. The analysis consists of reviewing the next five years outlook for sales, profitability, and cash flow for each of the Company’s manufacturing plants and for the overall Company. The five-year outlook considers known sales opportunities for which purchase orders exist, potential sale opportunities that are under development, third party forecasts of North American car builds (published by CSM Worldwide), and the potential sales that could result from new manufacturing process additions and lastly, strategic geographic localities that are important to servicing the automotive industry. All of this data is collected as part of our annual planning process and is updated with more current Company specific and industry data when an interim period impairment analysis is deemed necessary. In concluding the impairment analysis, the Company incorporates a sensitivity analysis by probability weighting the achievement of the forecasted cash flows by plant and achievements of cash flows that are 20% greater and less than the forecasted amounts.

The property, plant and equipment included in the analysis for each plant represents factory facilities devoted to the Company’s manufacturing processes and the related equipment within each plant needed to perform and support those processes. The property, plant and equipment of each plant form each plant’s asset group and typically certain key assets in the group form the primary processes at that plant that generate revenue and cash flow for that facility. Certain key assets have a life of ten to twelve years and the remainder of the assets in the asset group are shorter-lived assets that support the key processes. When the analysis indicates that estimated future undiscounted cash flows of a plant are less than the net carrying value of the long-lived assets of such plant, to the extent that the assets cannot be redeployed to another plant to generate positive cash flow, the Company will record an impairment charge, reducing the net carrying value of the fixed assets (exclusive of land and buildings, the fair value of which would be assessed through appraisals) to zero. Alternative courses of action to recover the carrying amount of the long-lived asset group are typically not considered due to the limited-use nature of the equipment and the full utilization of their useful life. Therefore, the equipment is of limited value in a used-equipment market. The depreciable lives of the Company’s fixed assets are generally consistent between years unless the assets are devoted to the manufacture of a customized automotive part and the equipment has limited reapplication opportunities. If the production of that part concludes earlier than expected, the asset life is shortened to fully amortize its remaining value over the shortened production period.

The Company cannot predict the occurrence of future impairment-triggering events. Such events may include, but are not limited to, significant industry or economic trends and strategic decisions made in response to changes in the economic and competitive conditions impacting the Company’s business. Based on then current facts, the Company recorded an impairment charge of $4,575 related to long-lived assets in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010. See Note 3 to the condensed consolidated financial statements for a discussion of the impairment charge recorded in fiscal 2010. The Company continues to assess impairment to long-lived assets based on expected orders from the Company’s customers and current business conditions.

The key assumptions related to the Company’s forecasted operating results could be adversely impacted by, among other things, decreases in estimated North American car builds during the forecast period, the inability of the Company or its major customers to maintain their respective forecasted market share positions, the inability of the Company to achieve the forecasted levels of operating margins on parts produced, and a deterioration in property values associated with manufacturing facilities.

Group Insurance and Workers’ Compensation Accruals. The Company is self-insured for group insurance and workers’ compensation claims and reviews these accruals on a monthly basis to adjust the balances as determined necessary. The Company reviews historical claims data and lag analysis as the primary indicators of the accruals.

Additionally, the Company reviews specific large insurance claims to determine whether there is a need for additional accrual on a case-by-case basis. Changes in the claim lag periods and the specific occurrences could materially impact the required accrual balance period-to-period. The Company carries excess insurance coverage for group insurance and workers’ compensation claims exceeding a range of $160-170 and $100-500 per plan year, respectively, dependent upon the location where the claim is incurred. At July 31, 2011 and 2010, the amount accrued for group insurance and workers’ compensation claims was $2,217 and $1,885, respectively. The insurance reserves established accruals are a result of improved safety statistics, changes in employment levels, reduced number of open and active workers’ compensation cases, and group insurance

16


plan design features. The Company does not self-insure for any other types of losses.

Share-Based Payments. The Company records compensation expense for the fair value of nonvested stock option awards over the remaining vesting period. The Company has elected to use the simplified method to calculate the expected term of the stock options outstanding at five to six years and has utilized historical weighted average volatility. The Company determines the volatility and risk-free rate assumptions used in computing the fair value using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model, in consultation with an outside third party.

The Black-Scholes option valuation model requires the input of highly subjective assumptions, including the expected life of the stock-based award and stock price volatility. The assumptions used are management’s best estimates, but the estimates involve inherent uncertainties and the application of management judgment. As a result, if other assumptions had been used, the recorded stock-based compensation expense could have been materially different from that depicted in the financial statements. In addition, the Company has estimated a 20% forfeiture rate. If actual forfeitures materially differ from the estimate, the share-based compensation expense could be materially different.

Pension and Other Post-retirement Costs and Liabilities. The Company has recorded significant pension and other post-retirement benefit liabilities that are developed from actuarial valuations. The determination of the Company’s pension liabilities requires key assumptions regarding discount rates used to determine the present value of future benefit payments and the expected return on plan assets. The discount rate is also significant to the development of other post-retirement liabilities. The Company determines these assumptions in consultation with, and after input from, its actuaries.

The discount rate reflects the estimated rate at which the pension and other post-retirement liabilities could be settled at the end of the year. Beginning in 2010, the Principal Pension Discount Yield Curve ("Principal Curve") has replaced the Citigroup Pension Discount Curve ("Citigroup Curve") as the basis for determining the discount rate for reporting pension and retiree medical liabilities. The Principal Curve has several advantages to the Citigroup Curve that was used in fiscal 2009, including: transparency of construction, lower statistical errors, and continuous forward rates for all years. At October 31, 2010, the resulting discount rate from the use of the Principal Curve was 5.50%, a decrease of .25% from a year earlier that resulted in an increase of the benefit obligation of approximately $1,800. A change of 25 basis points in the discount rate at October 31, 2010 would increase or decrease expense on an annual basis by approximately $61.

The assumed long-term rate of return on pension assets is applied to the market value of plan assets to derive a reduction to pension expense that approximates the expected average rate of asset investment return over ten or more years. A decrease in the expected long-term rate of return will increase pension expense whereas an increase in the expected long-term rate will reduce pension expense. Decreases in the level of plan assets will serve to increase the amount of pension expense whereas increases in the level of actual plan assets will serve to decrease the amount of pension expense. Any shortfall in the actual return on plan assets from the expected return will increase pension expense in future years due to the amortization of the shortfall, whereas any excess in the actual return on plan assets from the expected return will reduce pension expense in future periods due to the amortization of the excess. A change of 25 basis points in the assumed rate of return on pension assets would increase or decrease pension assets by approximately $107.

The Company’s investment policy for assets of the plans is to maintain an allocation generally of 0% to 70% in equity securities, 0% to 70% in debt securities, and 0% to 10% in real estate. Equity security investments are structured to achieve an equal balance between growth and value stocks. The Company determines the annual rate of return on pension assets by first analyzing the composition of its asset portfolio. Historical rates of return are applied to the portfolio. The Company’s investment advisors and actuaries review this computed rate of return. Industry comparables and other outside guidance are also considered in the annual selection of the expected rates of return on pension assets.

For the twelve months ended October 31, 2010, the actual return on pension plans’ assets for all of the Company’s plans approximated 13.20% to 15.00%, which exceeded the expected rate of return on plan assets of 7.50% used to derive pension expense. The long term expected rate of return takes into account years with exceptional gains and years with exceptional losses.

Actual results that differ from these estimates may result in more or less future Company funding into the pension plans than is planned by management. Based on current market investment performance, the Company anticipates that contributions to and pension expense for the Company’s defined benefit plans may increase or decrease in future years.

Results of Operations
Three Months Ended July 31, 2011 Compared to Three Months Ended July 31, 2010

REVENUES. Sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 were $128,191, an increase of $13,332 from last year’s third quarter sales of $114,859, or 11.6%. During the third quarter of fiscal 2011, sales increased as a result of increased production volumes of the North American car and light truck manufacturers, especially the traditional domestic manufacturers, the Company’s major customers. According to industry statistics, North American car and light truck production in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 increased 1.0% from production levels of the third quarter of fiscal 2010. For traditional domestic manufacturers, the production increase in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 was 10.6% compared to the prior year third quarter period. Sales also increased due to improving demand of the heavy truck industry.

GROSS PROFIT. Gross profit for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 was $9,249 compared to gross profit of $8,829 in the third quarter of fiscal 2010, an increase of $420. Gross profit as a percentage of sales was 7.2% in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 and 7.7% in the third quarter of fiscal 2010. Gross profit in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 was favorably impacted by approximately $2,790 from the increased sales volume. Gross profit margin was unfavorably affected by a change in sales mix to increased sales with steel ownership and increasing material costs net of revenue realized from the sales of engineered scrap during the third quarter of fiscal 2011 compared to the third quarter of 2010 resulting in a net material increase of approximately $1,070. In addition, manufacturing expenses increased by approximately $1,300 in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2010. Personnel and personnel related expenses, including the restoration of certain benefits, like the 401k Company match, were responsible for the growth in these expenses by approximately $1,640 as the Company’s workforce was increased in anticipation of improved production volumes, planning for future launches, and planning for further increases in North American vehicle production volumes. Expenses for repairs and maintenance and manufacturing supplies increased by approximately $670. These increases were offset by a reduction in depreciation and utilities of approximately $1,010.

SELLING, GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES. Selling, general and administrative expenses of $5,810 in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 were $1,006 more than selling, general and administrative expenses of $4,804 in the same period of the prior year. As a percentage of sales, these expenses were 4.5% of sales in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 and 4.2% in the third quarter of fiscal 2010. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses reflects higher personnel and personnel related expenses of approximately $680 as result of the restoration of certain benefits, like the 401k Company match.

ASSET IMPAIRMENT AND RESTRUCTURING CHARGES. During the third quarter of fiscal 2011, the Company recorded a restructuring charge of $352 based on a negotiated settlement for approximately 90 employees for severance and health insurance related to the previously announced planned closure of the Company's plant in Mansfield, Ohio. Impairment recovery of $88 was recorded during the third quarter of fiscal 2011 for cash received upon the sale of assets that were previously impaired. The assets that were sold in the third quarter of 2011 related to the Company’s Liverpool Stamping facility that was impaired in fiscal 2009.

OTHER. Interest expense for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 was $307, compared to interest expense of $854 during the third quarter of fiscal 2010. Interest expense decreased from the prior year third quarter as a result of a reduced level of average borrowed funds and the impact of the amended and restated Credit and Security Agreement, which lowered the weighted average interest rate in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 compared to the prior year. Borrowed funds averaged $31,868 during the third quarter of fiscal 2011 and the weighted average interest rate was 2.82%. In the third quarter of fiscal 2010, borrowed funds averaged $33,905 while the weighted average interest rate was 6.94%.

Other expense, net was $3 for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 compared to a net expense of $18 in the third quarter of fiscal 2010. Other expense in both fiscal 2011 and 2010 is the result of currency transaction losses realized by the Company's Mexican subsidiary. 

The provision for income taxes in the third quarter of fiscal 2011 was an expense of $1,177 on income before taxes of $2,868 for an effective tax rate of 41.0%. The provision for income taxes in the third quarter of fiscal 2010 was an expense of $1,116 on income before taxes of $3,153 for an effective tax rate of 35.4%. The estimated effective tax rate for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 has increased compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2010 primarily from a Michigan tax law change that was enacted in Shiloh's 2011 third quarter.

NET INCOME. The net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 was $1,691, or $0.10 per share, diluted. Net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2010 was $2,037 or $0.12 per share, diluted.

Nine Months Ended July 31, 2011 Compared to Nine Months Ended July 31, 2010

REVENUES. Sales for the first nine months of fiscal 2011 were $374,028, an increase of $43,442 from last year’s first nine months sales of $330,586, or 13.1%. For the first nine months of fiscal 2011, North American car and light truck production increased by 7.0%, compared with production for the first nine months of fiscal 2010.

GROSS PROFIT. Gross profit for the first nine months of fiscal 2011 was $27,191 compared to $24,915 in the first nine months of fiscal 2010, an increase of $2,276. Gross profit as a percentage of sales was 7.3% in the first nine months of fiscal 2011 compared to 7.5% for the same period a year ago. For the first nine months of fiscal 2011, gross profit increased by approximately $9,960 from the increased sales volume compared to the prior year first nine month period. Gross profit margin was unfavorably affected by a change in sales mix to increased sales with steel ownership and increasing material costs partially offset by an improvement in revenue realized from the sales of engineered scrap during the first nine months of 2011 compared to the first nine months of 2010 by approximately $2,520. In addition, manufacturing expenses increased by approximately $5,160 in the first nine months of 2011 compared to the first nine months of 2010. Personnel and personnel related expenses increased by approximately $5,890 as a result of an increase in the Company’s workforce related to the improved production volumes, planning for future launches, planning for further increases in North American vehicle production volumes, and the restoration of certain benefits. Repairs and maintenance and manufacturing supplies increased approximately $2,760. These increases were partially offset by a reduction in depreciation and utility costs of approximately $3,490.

SELLING, GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES. Selling, general and administrative expenses were $16,849, or 4.5% of sales in the first nine months of fiscal 2011, compared to $14,719, or 4.5% of sales in the same period of the prior year. The increase in selling, general, and administrative expenses reflects higher personnel and personnel related expenses of approximately $1,790 as a result of increased headcount and the restoration of certain benefits, like the 401k Company match.

ASSET IMPAIRMENT AND RESTRUCTURING CHARGES. During the third quarter of fiscal 2011, the Company recorded a restructuring charge of $352 based on a negotiated settlement for approximately 90 employees for severance and health insurance related to the previously announced planned closure of the Company's plant in Mansfield, Ohio. Impairment recoveries of $230 and $48 were recorded during the first nine months of fiscal 2011 and 2010, respectively, for cash received upon the sale of assets that were previously impaired. The assets that were sold in the first nine months of fiscal 2011 related to the Company’s Liverpool Stamping facility that was impaired in fiscal 2009. The assets that were sold in the first nine months of 2010 related to the Company’s Cleveland Stamping facility that was impaired in fiscal 2006.

OTHER. For the first nine months of fiscal 2011, interest expense was $1,271, a decrease of $1,853 from interest expense of $3,124 in the first nine months of fiscal 2010. The reduction in interest expense compared to the prior year nine-month period is the result of a reduced level of average borrowed funds and the impact of the Fifth Amendment to the Credit Agreement and the amended and restated Credit and Security Agreement, which both lowered the weighted average interest rate during the first nine months of fiscal 2011 compared to the prior year nine-month period. Borrowed funds averaged $29,158 during the first nine months of fiscal 2011 and the weighted average interest rate was 3.01%. For the first nine months of fiscal 2010, borrowed funds averaged $43,550 while the weighted average interest rate was 6.95%.

Other income, net was $108 for the first nine months of fiscal 2011 compared to other expense, net of $43 for the first nine months of fiscal 2010. Other income in fiscal 2011 consisted of $131 generated from the sale of stock received in the second quarter in connection with the settlement of a customer bankruptcy and netted against an expense of $23 for currency transaction losses realized by the Company’s Mexican subsidiary. The $43 expense in fiscal 2010 is the result of currency transaction losses realized by the Company's Mexican subsidiary.

The provision for income taxes for the first nine months of fiscal 2011 was an expense of $3,414 on income before taxes of $9,060 for an effective tax rate of 37.7%. The provision for income taxes for the first nine months of fiscal 2010 was an expense of $2,489 on income before taxes of $7,079 for an effective tax rate of 35.2%. The estimated effective tax rate for the first nine months of fiscal 2011 has increased compared to the first nine months of fiscal 2010 primarily from changes in estimates of prior year tax accruals and a Michigan tax law change offset by a decrease in state income taxes.

NET INCOME. The net income for the first nine months of fiscal 2011 was $5,646, or $0.33 per share, diluted. The net income for the first nine months of fiscal 2010 was $4,590, or $0.28 per share, diluted.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

On August 1, 2008, the Company entered into a credit agreement with a syndicate of lenders with PNC Bank National Association, successor of National City Bank, as co-lead arranger, sole book runner and administrative agent and The Privatebank and Trust Company as co-lead arranger and syndication agent. The initial agreement provided the Company with a revolving line of credit up to $120 million with the opportunity to borrow up to an additional $80 million at then current market rates. The Credit Agreement also established limits for additional borrowings, dividends, investments, acquisitions or mergers and sales of assets.

On September 1, 2010, the Company entered into a Fifth Amendment Agreement (the “Fifth Amendment”) of the Credit Agreement. The Fifth Amendment provided the Company with a revolving line of credit up to $80 million through July 31, 2012. The Company also had the opportunity to borrow up to an additional $80 million, at the current market rates. The Company was permitted to prepay the borrowings under the revolving credit facility without penalty. Under the Fifth Amendment, the Company had the option to select the applicable interest rate based upon two indices – a Base Rate, a daily rate based on the highest of the prime rate, the Federal Funds Open Rate plus one-half of one percent or the daily Libor Rate plus one percent, as defined in the Fifth Amendment, or the Eurodollar Rate, as defined in the Fifth Amendment. The selected index was combined with a designated margin from an agreed upon pricing matrix.

On April 19, 2011, the Company entered into an amended and restated Credit and Security Agreement (the “Agreement”) with a syndicate of lenders led by The Privatebank and Trust Company, as co-lead arranger, sole book runner and administrative agent and PNC Capital Markets, LLC as co-lead arranger and PNC Bank, National Association, as syndication agent. The Agreement amends and restates in its entirety the Company’s Credit Agreement, dated as of August 1, 2008.

The Agreement has a five-year term and provides for an $80 million secured revolving line of credit which may be increased up to $120 million subject to the Company’s pro forma compliance with financial covenants, the administrative agent’s approval and the Company obtaining commitments for such increase. The Company is permitted to prepay the borrowings under the revolving credit facility without penalty.

Borrowings under the Agreement bear interest, at the Company’s option, at the London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) or the base (or “prime”) rate established from time to time by the administrative agent, in each case plus an applicable margin set forth in a matrix based on the Company’s leverage ratio. In addition to interest charges, the Company will pay in arrears a quarterly commitment fee ranging from 0.375% - 0.750% based on the Company’s daily revolving exposure. At July 31, 2011, the interest rate for the credit facility was 2.69% for Eurodollar rate loans and 4.25% for base rate loans.

The Agreement contains customary restrictive and financial covenants, including covenants regarding the Company’s outstanding indebtedness and maximum leverage and fixed charge coverage ratios. The Agreement specifies that the leverage ratio shall not exceed 2.25 to 1.00 to the conclusion of the Agreement. Also, the Agreement specifies that the fixed charge ratio shall not be less than 2.50 to 1.00 to the conclusion of the Agreement. The Company was in compliance with the financial covenants as July 31, 2011.

The Agreement specifies that upon the occurrence of an event or condition deemed to have a material adverse effect on the business or operations of the Company, as determined by the administrative agent of the lending syndicate or the required lenders, as defined as 51% of the aggregate commitment under the Agreement, the outstanding borrowings become due and payable at the option of the required lenders. The Company does not anticipate at this time any change in business conditions or operations that could be deemed a material adverse effect by the lenders.

Borrowings under the Agreement are collateralized by a first priority security interest in substantially all of the tangible and intangible property of the Company and its domestic subsidiaries and 65% of the stock of foreign subsidiaries.

After considering letters of credit of $1,748 that the Company has issued, available funds under the Credit Agreement were $47,702 at July 31, 2011.

In July 2011, the Company entered into a finance agreement with an insurance broker for various insurance policies that bears interest at a fixed rate of 2.67% and requires monthly payments of $65 through April 2012. As of July 31, 2011, $730 remained outstanding under this agreement and were classified as current debt in the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets.

20



In June 2004, the Company issued a $2,000 promissory note to the State of Ohio related to specific machinery and equipment at one of the Company’s Ohio facilities. The promissory note bears interest at 1% for the first year of the term and 3% per annum for the balance of the term, with interest only payments for the first year of the term. Principal payments began in August 2005 in the amount of $25, and monthly principal payments continued increasing annually thereafter until July 2011, when the loan matured. The balance due the State of Ohio at July 31, 2011 and October 31, 2010 was $0 and $270, respectively.

Scheduled repayments under the terms of the Credit Agreement plus repayments of other debt for the next five years are listed below:

At July 31, 2011, total debt was $31,280 and total equity was $107,071, resulting in a capitalization rate of 22.6% debt, 77.4% equity. Current assets were $115,863 and current liabilities were $80,392 resulting in positive working capital of $35,471.
For the nine months ended July 31, 2011, operations generated $24,391 of cash flow compared to $25,990 in the first nine months of 2010.
Working capital changes since October 31, 2010 were a use of funds of $17,308. During the first nine months of fiscal 2011, accounts receivable have decreased by $4,889 and inventory increased by $20,209 since the end of fiscal 2010. Considering the increase in overdraft balances of $6,217, accounts payable, net have increased $5,448.

The increase in raw material inventories of approximately $8,000 is related to the required purchase of raw material to support the planned bank build at the Company's Mansfield, Ohio facility. The raw material will be consumed into finished goods to build a bank of parts to supply between a two to fourteen week requirement of customer releases of inventory to facilitate the move of certain machinery and equipment from the Mansfield facility to the Company's Bowling Green, Kentucky facility and for the planned closure of operations during fiscal 2011. The remaining increase of raw materials of approximately $3,900 is a result of increased sales volumes along with increased sales with steel ownership.

The increase in tooling inventories of $3,890 is for customer reimbursed production tooling related to new program awards that go into production in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 and throughout fiscal 2012.

Cash capital expenditures in the first nine months of fiscal 2011 were $14,798. The Company had unpaid capital expenditures of approximately $378 and such amounts are included in accounts payable and excluded from capital expenditures in the accompanying condensed consolidated statement of cash flows. Total estimated capital expenditures for the remainder of fiscal 2011 are $2,000, subject to change based on business conditions.

Effect of Inflation, Deflation
Inflation generally affects the Company by increasing the interest expense of floating rate indebtedness and by increasing the cost of labor, equipment and raw materials. Inflation has not generally had a material effect on the Company’s financial results.
In periods of decreasing prices, deflation occurs and may also affect the Company’s results of operations. With respect to steel purchases, the Company’s purchases of steel through customers’ resale steel programs protects recovery of the cost of steel through the selling price of the Company’s products. For non-resale steel purchases, the Company coordinates the cost of steel purchases with the related selling price of the product.
