operating results are "forward-looking" statements within the meaning of
the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The
forward-looking statements are made on the basis of management's
assumptions and expectations. As a result, there can be no guarantee or
assurance that these assumptions and expectations will in fact occur.
The forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties
that may cause actual results to materially differ from those contained
in the statements due to a variety of factors, including (1) our ability

including adverse effects from terrorism or related hostilities; (4)
costs related to legal and administrative matters; (5) our ability to
realize cost savings expected to offset price concessions; (6) our
ability to successfully integrate acquired businesses, including
businesses located outside of the United States; (7) risks associated
with doing business internationally, including economic, political and
social instability, foreign currency exposure and the lack of acceptance
of our products; (8) inefficiencies related to production and product
launches that are greater than anticipated; (9) changes in technology
and technological risks; (10) work stoppages and strikes at our
facilities and that of our customers or suppliers; (11) our dependence
on the automotive and heavy truck industries, which are highly cyclical;
(12) the dependence of the automotive industry on consumer spending,
which is subject to the impact of domestic and international economic
conditions affecting car and light truck production; (13) regulations
and policies regarding international trade; (14) financial and business
downturns of our customers or vendors, including any production cutbacks
or bankruptcies; (15) increases in the price of, or limitations on the

consumer acceptance of new vehicles for which we supply parts; (17) the
impact on financial statements of any known or unknown accounting errors
or irregularities; and the magnitude of any adjustments in restated

any event or condition that may be deemed a material adverse effect

(19) pension plan funding requirements; and (20) other factors besides
those listed here could also materially affect our business. See "Part
II, Item 1A. Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the
fiscal year ended October 31, 2018 for a more complete discussion of
these risks and uncertainties. Any or all of these risks and

Press Release. We undertake no obligation to publicly revise these

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release may include non-GAAP financial measures, including
"EBITDA," "adjusted EBITDA ," "adjusted EBITDA margin" and "adjusted
earnings per share." We define EBITDA as net income (loss) before
interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We define adjusted
EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation,
amortization, and other adjustments as described in the reconciliations
accompanying this press release. We define adjusted EBITDA margin as
adjusted EBITDA divided by net revenues as shown in the reconciliations
accompanying this press release. Adjusted earnings per share excludes
certain income and expense items as shown in the reconciliation
accompanying this press release. We use EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA,
adjusted EBITDA margin and adjusted earnings per share as supplements to
information provided in accordance with generally accepted accounting
principles ("GAAP") in evaluating our business and they are included in
this press release because they are principal factors upon which our
management assesses performance. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP
financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures
calculated in accordance with GAAP are set forth below. The non-GAAP
measures presented in this release are not measures of performance under
GAAP. These measures should not be considered as alternatives to the
most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance
with GAAP. Other companies in our industry may define these non-GAAP
measures differently than we do and, as a result, these non-GAAP
measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by
other companies; and certain of our non-GAAP financial measures exclude
financial information that some may consider important in evaluating our
performance. Given the inherent uncertainty regarding special items and
other expenses in any future period, a reconciliation of forward-looking
financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures
calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP is not feasible. The
magnitude of these items, however, may be significant.
