TITAN INTERNATIONAL, INC.
Notes to Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements
(Unaudited)


1.
ACCOUNTING POLICIES

In the opinion of Titan International, Inc. (Titan or the Company), the accompanying unaudited consolidated condensed financial statements contain all adjustments, which are normal and recurring in nature and necessary for a fair statement of the Company's financial position as of September 30, 2014, and the results of operations and cash flows for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013.

Accounting policies have continued without significant change and are described in the Description of Business and Significant Accounting Policies contained in the Company's 2013 Annual Report on Form 10-K. These interim financial statements have been prepared pursuant to the Securities and Exchange Commission's rules for Form 10-Q's and, therefore, certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been condensed or omitted. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company's 2013 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Sales
Sales and revenues are presented net of sales taxes and other related taxes.

Fair value of financial instruments
The Company records all financial instruments, including cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, notes receivable, accounts payable, other accruals and notes payable at cost, which approximates fair value due to their short term or stated rates.  Investments in marketable equity securities are recorded at fair value.  The 6.875% senior secured notes due 2020 (senior secured notes due 2020) and 5.625% convertible senior subordinated notes due 2017 (convertible notes) are carried at cost of $400.0 million and $60.2 million at September 30, 2014, respectively. The fair value of the senior secured notes due 2020 at September 30, 2014, as obtained through an independent pricing source, was approximately $390.0 million.

Cash dividends
The Company declared cash dividends of $.005 and $0.015 per share of common stock for each of the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, and 2013. The third quarter 2014 cash dividend of $.005 per share of common stock was paid October 15, 2014, to stockholders of record on September 30, 2014.

Use of estimates
The policies utilized by the Company in the preparation of the financial statements conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and require management to make estimates, assumptions and judgments that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities, and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities, at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual amounts could differ from these estimates and assumptions.

Reclassification
Certain amounts from prior years have been reclassified to conform to the current year's presentation.

Subsequent Events
The Company has evaluated subsequent events and transactions for potential recognition or disclosure in the financial statements through the date of issuance of the financial statements.

2. MINING ASSET IMPAIRMENT AND INVENTORY WRITEDOWN

In the second quarter of 2014, the Company recorded an asset impairment and inventory writedown of $23.2 million and $11.6 million, respectively. The impairment was recorded on machinery, equipment and molds used to produce giant mining tires. Mining products are included in the Company's earthmoving/construction segment. In the second quarter of 2014, several large mining equipment manufacturers significantly decreased their sales forecast for mining equipment. The Company's sales of mining product were deteriorating at an accelerated pace. Therefore, the company tested mining related assets for impairment in the second quarter of 2014. The fair value of the mining equipment was determined using a cost and market approach. The inventory writedown was to adjust the value of mining product inventory to estimated market value.


3. ACQUISITIONS

Acquisition of Voltyre-Prom
On October 4, 2013, Titan, in partnership with One Equity Partners (OEP) and the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF), closed the acquisition of an 85% interest in Voltyre-Prom, a leading producer of agricultural and industrial tires in Volgograd, Russia, for approximately $94.1 million, which includes the assumption of debt. Titan is acting as operating partner with responsibility for Voltyre-Prom's daily operations on behalf of the consortium of which Titan holds a 30% interest. This acquisition expanded Titan's footprint into the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) region. The fair value of the consideration transferred and noncontrolling interests exceeded the fair value of the identified assets acquired less liabilities assumed. Therefore, goodwill of $21.0 million was recorded on the transaction, which is not expected to be deductible for tax purposes. An initial noncontrolling interest of $14.5 million, representing the 15% not owned by the partnership, was recorded at the acquisition date. In the first half of 2014, the partnership of Titan, OEP, and RDIF purchased an additional 15% to bring the total Voltyre-Prom ownership to 100%. The Company continues to evaluate the preliminary purchase price allocation, primarily the value of certain deferred taxes and goodwill, and may revise the purchase price allocation in future periods as these estimates are finalized.

The Company reviews goodwill for impairment during the fourth quarter of each annual reporting period, and whenever events and circumstances indicate that the carrying values may not be recoverable. In the second quarter of 2014, several large mining equipment manufacturers significantly decreased their sales forecast for mining equipment. The Company's sales of mining product were deteriorating at an accelerated pace. Therefore, related to the earthmoving/construction segment, the Company reviewed $12.2 million of Australia goodwill for impairment in the second quarter of 2014. The recoverability of the goodwill was evaluated by estimating future discounted cash flows. In determining the estimated future cash flows, the Company considered current and projected future levels of income as well as business trends and economic conditions. Impairment was not identified. However, the calculated excess value was less than 10% and there may be potential risk of future impairment if cash flows or other estimates change. No additional indicators of impairment were identified in the third quarter of 2014.

Titan Europe's wheel manufacturing facility in Finale Emilia, Italy experienced damage from an earthquake in May 2012, prior to Titan's acquisition of Titan Europe.  The plant was closed for production during initial remedial work. This resulted in a limited transfer of production to other facilities within Titan Europe as well as sourcing product from facilities in the U.S. owned by Titan and competitors.  In the second quarter of 2013, Titan received a final insurance settlement payment of $38.7 million, which offset the earthquake insurance receivable and resulted in a gain of $22.5 million.

In August of 2014, the Company received an $11.3 million capital grant from the Italian government for asset damages related to the earthquake. The grant was recorded as a deferred income in noncurrent liabilities which will be amortized over the life of the reconstructed building.


17. INCOME TAXES

The Company recorded income tax benefit of $(5.1) million and $(15.6) million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, respectively, as compared to income tax expense of $5.7 million and $38.9 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013. The Company's effective income tax rate was 25% and 44% for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively.

The Company's 2014 income tax benefit and rate differs from the amount of income tax determined by applying the U.S. Federal income tax rate to pre-tax income primarily as a result of state income tax expense, unrecognized tax benefits, foreign earnings, and the tax benefit related to the incremental deduction for a prior year bond repurchase premium.

The Company's 2013 income tax expense and rate differs from the amount of income tax determined by applying the U.S. Federal income tax rate to pre-tax income primarily as a result of a change in Italian law making the insurance proceeds from the earthquake non-taxable. In addition, as a result of the reassessment of the realizability of the deferred tax assets due to the Italian law change, a valuation allowance was established on the Italy net deferred tax assets. Other items contributing to the rate difference are state income tax expense, expense for unrecognized tax benefits, foreign earnings, domestic production activities deduction, and tax deductible expenses related to the convertible bond repurchase.

The Company is a party to routine legal proceedings arising out of the normal course of business.  Although it is not possible to predict with certainty the outcome of these unresolved legal actions or the range of possible loss, the Company believes at this time that none of these actions, individually or in the aggregate, will have a material adverse effect on the consolidated financial condition, results of operations or cash flows of the Company.  However, due to the difficult nature of predicting unresolved and future legal claims, the Company cannot anticipate or predict the material adverse effect on its consolidated financial condition, results of operations or cash flows as a result of efforts to comply with, or its liabilities pertaining to, legal judgments.

21. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

Accounting standards for fair value measurements establish a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value.  These tiers are defined as:
 
Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets for identical instruments.
Level 2 – Inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are either directly or indirectly observable.
Level 3 – Unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions.

Assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis consisted of the following (amounts in thousands):
 
September 30, 2014
 
December 31, 2013
