Forward-Looking Statements
This report contains forward-looking statements (as that term is defined by the federal securities laws) about our financial condition, results of operations and business. You can find many of these statements by looking for words such as "may," "will," "expect," "anticipate," "believe," "estimate" and similar words used in this report.
These forward-looking statements are subject to numerous assumptions, risks and uncertainties. Because the statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. We caution readers not to place undue reliance on the statements, which speak only as of the date of this report.
The cautionary statements set forth above should be considered in connection with any subsequent written or oral forward-looking statements that we or persons acting on our behalf may issue. We do not undertake any obligation to review or confirm analysts' expectations or estimates or to release publicly any revisions to any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this report or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.
You should carefully consider the factors discussed in Part I, Item 1A, "Risk Factors," in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 , which could materially affect our business, financial condition or future results. The risks described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K are not the only risks facing our Company. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deemed to be immaterial also may materially adversely affect our business, financial position and results of operations or cash flows.
We disclose important factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from our expectations under Part I, Item 2., " Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, " and elsewhere in this report. These cautionary statements qualify all forward-looking statements attributed to us or persons acting on our behalf. When we indicate that an event, condition or circumstance could or would have an adverse effect on us, we mean to include effects upon our business, financial and other condition, results of operations, prospects and ability to service our debt.

TRIMAS CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(unaudited)


1. Basis of Presentation
TriMas Corporation ("TriMas" or the "Company"), and its consolidated subsidiaries, is a global manufacturer and distributor of products for commercial, industrial and consumer markets. The Company is principally engaged in the following reportable segments with diverse products and market channels: Packaging, Energy, Aerospace & Defense, Engineered Components, Cequent Asia Pacific and Cequent Americas. The Company renamed its former "Cequent North America" reportable segment "Cequent Americas" effective in the third quarter of 2012 following an acquisition in Brazil to more appropriately reflect the expanding geography covered by the businesses in this reportable segment. See Note  11 , "Segment Information," for further information on each of the Company's reportable segments.
The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries and in the opinion of management, contain all adjustments, including adjustments of a normal and recurring nature, necessary for a fair presentation of financial position and results of operations. Results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year. Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform with the current year presentation. The accompanying consolidated financial statements and notes thereto should be read in conjunction with the Company's 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K.
2 . Equity Offering
In May 2012, the Company issued 4,000,000 shares of its common stock via a public offering at a price of $20.75 per share. Net proceeds from the offering, after deducting underwriting discounts, commissions and offering expenses of $4.0 million , totaled approximately $79.0 million . Approximately $54.9 million of the net proceeds were utilized to redeem $50.0 million aggregate principal of the Company's 9¾% senior secured notes due 2017 ("Senior Notes"). The remaining net proceeds were used for general corporate purposes, including acquisitions, capital expenditures and working capital requirements. See Note 8 , "Long-term Debt," for further information on the Company's partial redemption of its Senior Notes.
3 . Discontinued Operations and Assets Held for Sale
During the third quarter of 2011, the Company committed to a plan to exit its precision tool cutting and specialty fittings lines of business, both of which were part of the Engineered Components reportable segment. The businesses were sold in December 2011 for cash proceeds of $36.4 million and a note receivable of $2.2 million , which was collected during the second quarter of 2012, resulting in a pre-tax gain on sale of approximately $10.3 million . The purchase agreement also includes up to $2.5 million of additional contingent consideration, based on achievement of certain levels of future financial performance in 2012 and 2013.
The results of the aforementioned businesses are reported as discontinued operations for all periods presented. Results of discontinued operations are summarized as follows:

4 . Acquisitions
Arminak & Associates
On February 24, 2012, the Company acquired 70% of the membership interests of Arminak & Associates, LLC ("Arminak") for the purchase price of approximately $67.7 million . Arminak is in the business of designing, manufacturing and supplying foamers, lotion pumps, fine mist sprayers and other packaging solutions for the cosmetic, personal care and household product markets. The acquisition of Arminak enhances the Company's highly-engineered product offering and provides access to large global customers in the cosmetic and personal care markets. Arminak is included in the Company's Packaging reportable segment.
The purchase agreement provides the Company an option to purchase, and the Sellers an option to sell, the remaining 30% noncontrolling interest at specified dates in the future based on a multiple of future earnings, as defined. The put and call options become exercisable during the first quarters of 2014, 2015 and 2016. During the first exercise period, in 2014, TriMas and Arminak's previous owners ("Sellers") have the opportunity to put or call a 10% interest in Arminak. During the second exercise period, in 2015, TriMas and the Sellers have the opportunity to put or call an additional 10% , or up to all remaining interests held by Sellers per joint agreement, as defined in the purchase agreement. Finally, during the third exercise period, in 2016, a call or put may be exercised for all or any portions of the remaining interests held by the Sellers.
The combination of a noncontrolling interest and a redemption feature resulted in a redeemable noncontrolling interest, which is classified outside of permanent equity on the accompanying consolidated balance sheet. In order to estimate the fair value of the redeemable noncontrolling interest in Arminak, the Company utilized the Monte Carlo valuation method, using variations of estimated future discounted cash flows given certain significant assumptions including expected revenue growth, minimum and maximum estimated levels of gross profit margin, future expected cash flows, amounts transferred during each put and call exercise period and appropriate discount rates. As these assumptions are not observable in the market, the calculation represents a Level 3 fair value measurement. The Company recorded the redeemable noncontrolling interest at fair value at the date of acquisition.
Each reporting period, the Company adjusts the carrying amount of the noncontrolling interest to the greater of (1) the initial carrying amount, increased or decreased for the noncontrolling interest's share of Arminak's net income or loss and its share of comprehensive income or loss and dividends and (2) the redemption value as determined by the specified multiple of earnings, as defined. This method views the end of the reporting period as if it were also the redemption date for the redeemable noncontrolling interest. If the fair value of the redeemable noncontrolling interest is less than the redemption value, there may be a charge to earnings per share attributable to TriMas Corporation. At September 30, 2012 , the estimated fair value of the redeemable noncontrolling interest exceeded the redemption value.
Changes in the carrying amount of redeemable noncontrolling interest are summarized as follows:

(a) The contingent consideration represented the Company's best estimate, based on its review, at the time of purchase, of the underlying potential obligations estimated at a range of $8 million to $9 million , of certain Seller tax-related liabilities for which the Company has indemnified the Sellers as part of the purchase agreement. During the second and third quarters of 2012, the Company paid $3.7 million of additional purchase price related to the contingent consideration. The remaining liability range of $4.3 million to $5.3 million continues to represent the Company's best estimate of the remaining potential obligation at September 30, 2012.
(b) Consists of $33.0 million of customer relationships with an estimated 10 year useful life, $7.9 million of trademarks/trade names with an indefinite useful life and $7.5 million of technology and other intangible assets with an estimated 8 year useful life.
(c) All of the goodwill was assigned to the Company's Packaging reportable segment and is expected to be deductible for tax purposes.

U.S. Bank Debt
The Company is a party to a credit facility consisting of a $125.0 million revolving credit facility, which matures in June 2016 and is subject to interest at London Interbank Offered Rates ("LIBOR") plus 3.25% , and a $225.0 million term loan facility, which matures in June 2017 and is subject to interest at LIBOR plus 3.00% (subject to a 1.25% LIBOR floor) (collectively, the "Credit Agreement").
Under the Credit Agreement, the Company may be required to prepay a portion of its term loan under an excess cash flow sweep provision, as defined, with the amount of such prepayment based on the Company's leverage ratio, as defined. In April 2012, the Company prepaid $5.0 million of term loan principal under this provision. The Company is also able to issue letters of credit, not to exceed $50.0 million in aggregate, against its revolving credit facility commitments. At September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 , the Company had letters of credit of approximately $23.3 million and $23.9 million , respectively, issued and outstanding.
At September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 , the Company had no amounts outstanding under its revolving credit facilities and had $101.7 million and $101.1 million , respectively, potentially available after giving effect to approximately $23.3 million and $23.9 million , respectively, of letters of credit issued and outstanding. However, including availability under its accounts receivable facility and after consideration of leverage restrictions contained in the Credit Agreement, the Company had $191.1 million and $158.8 million , respectively, of borrowing capacity available to it for general corporate purposes.
The debt under the Credit Agreement is an obligation of the Company and certain of its subsidiaries. Although the terms of the Credit Agreement do not restrict the Company's subsidiaries from making distributions to it in respect of its Senior Notes, it does contain certain other limitations on the distribution of funds from TriMas Company LLC, the Company's principal subsidiary. The restricted net assets of the guarantor subsidiaries of approximately $513.4 million and $412.8 million at September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 , respectively, are presented in Note  17 , "Supplemental Guarantor Condensed Consolidating Financial Information." The Credit Agreement also contains various negative and affirmative covenants and other requirements affecting the Company and its subsidiaries. The Company was in compliance with its covenants at September 30, 2012 .
During the second quarter of 2011, the Company incurred $6.6 million in fees to complete the refinance of its U.S. bank debt, of which $4.2 million was capitalized as deferred financing fees and $2.4 million was recorded as debt extinguishment costs in the accompanying statement of operations. In addition, the Company also recorded debt extinguishment costs of $1.6 million related to deferred financing fees associated with the previous credit agreement.
The Company's term loan facility traded at approximately 99.8% and 99.0% of par value as of September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 , respectively, and was valued based on Level 2 inputs as defined in the fair value hierarchy.
Non-U.S. Bank Debt
The Company's Australian subsidiary is party to a debt agreement which matures on May 31, 2013 and is secured by substantially all the assets of the subsidiary. At September 30, 2012 , the balance outstanding under this agreement was approximately $15.6 million at an average interest rate of 3.6% . At December 31, 2011 , the Company's Australian subsidiary had no amounts outstanding under this debt agreement.

Notes
In June 2012, the Company completed a partial redemption of its Senior Notes using cash proceeds from its May 2012 equity offering, paying approximately $54.9 million to redeem $50.0 million in aggregate principal at a redemption price equal to 109.750% of the principal amount. In connection with this partial redemption, the Company also incurred non-cash debt extinguishment costs of approximately $1.7 million . See Note 2 , "Equity Offering," for further information on the Company's equity offering.
The Company's Senior Notes indenture contains negative and affirmative covenants and other requirements that are comparable to those contained in the Credit Agreement. At September 30, 2012 , the Company was in compliance with all such covenant requirements.
The Company's Senior Notes traded at approximately 115.0% and 108.5% of par value as of September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 , respectively, and was valued based on Level 2 inputs as defined in the fair value hierarchy.
Receivables Facility
The Company is a party to an accounts receivable facility through TSPC, Inc. ("TSPC"), a wholly-owned subsidiary, to sell trade accounts receivable of substantially all of the Company's domestic business operations. Under this facility, TSPC, from time to time, may sell an undivided fractional ownership interest in the pool of receivables up to approximately $90.0 million to a third party multi-seller receivables funding company. The net amount financed under the facility is less than the face amount of accounts receivable by an amount that approximates the purchaser's financing costs. The cost of funds under this facility consisted of a 3-month LIBOR-based rate plus a usage fee of 1.50% as of September 30, 2012 and 2011 , respectively, and a fee on the unused portion of the facility of 0.45% as of September 30, 2012 and 2011 , respectively.
The Company did not have any amounts outstanding under the facility as of September 30, 2012 or December 31, 2011 , but had $89.4 million and $57.6 million , respectively, available but not utilized. Aggregate costs incurred under the facility were $0.3 million and $0.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 , respectively, and $0.8 million and $1.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 , respectively, and are included in interest expense in the accompanying consolidated statement of operations. The facility expires on September 15, 2015.
The cost of funds fees incurred are determined by calculating the estimated present value of the receivables sold compared to their carrying amount. The estimated present value factor is based on historical collection experience and a discount rate based on a 3-month LIBOR-based rate plus the usage fee discussed above and is computed in accordance with the terms of the securitization agreement. As of September 30, 2012 , the cost of funds under the facility was based on an average liquidation period of the portfolio of approximately 1.6  months and an average discount rate of 1.8% .
9. Derivative Instruments
In March 2012, the Company entered into an interest rate swap agreement to fix the LIBOR-based variable portion of the interest rate on a total of $100.0 million notional amount of its term loan facility. The swap agreement fixes the LIBOR-based variable portion of the interest rate at 1.80% and expires on June 23, 2016. The Company has designated the swap agreement as a cash flow hedge.
In addition, the Company was party to a $125.0 million notional amount interest rate swap which expired in July 2011 and a second interest rate swap with a notional amount of $75.0 million which expired in the first quarter of 2011. Both of these swaps were associated with the Company's previous term loan facility, but during 2011 neither was designated as a hedging instrument. During 2011, a loss of $10 thousand was recognized in interest expense.

Asbestos
As of September 30, 2012 , the Company was a party to 1,119 pending cases involving an aggregate of 7,972 claimants alleging personal injury from exposure to asbestos containing materials formerly used in gaskets (both encapsulated and otherwise) manufactured or distributed by certain of the Company's subsidiaries for use primarily in the petrochemical refining and exploration industries. The following chart summarizes the number of claimants, number of claims filed, number of claims dismissed, number of claims settled, the average settlement amount per claim and the total defense costs, exclusive of amounts reimbursed under the Company's primary insurance, at the applicable date and for the applicable periods:

In addition, the Company acquired various companies to distribute its products that had distributed gaskets of other manufacturers prior to acquisition. The Company believes that many of its pending cases relate to locations at which none of its gaskets were distributed or used.
The Company may be subjected to significant additional asbestos-related claims in the future, the cost of settling cases in which product identification can be made may increase, and the Company may be subjected to further claims in respect of the former activities of its acquired gasket distributors. The Company is unable to make a meaningful statement concerning the monetary claims made in the asbestos cases given that, among other things, claims may be initially made in some jurisdictions without specifying the amount sought or by simply stating the requisite or maximum permissible monetary relief, and may be amended to alter the amount sought.

In addition, relatively few of the claims have reached the discovery stage and even fewer claims have gone past the discovery stage.
Total settlement costs (exclusive of defense costs) for all asbestos-related cases, some of which were filed over 20 years ago, have been approximately $6.3 million . All relief sought in the asbestos cases is monetary in nature. To date, approximately 40% of the Company's costs related to settlement and defense of asbestos litigation have been covered by its primary insurance. Effective February 14, 2006, the Company entered into a coverage-in-place agreement with its first level excess carriers regarding the coverage to be provided to the Company for asbestos-related claims when the primary insurance is exhausted. The coverage-in-place agreement makes asbestos defense costs and indemnity coverage available to the Company that might otherwise be disputed by the carriers and provides a methodology for the administration of such expenses. Nonetheless, the Company believes it is likely there will be a period within the next one or two years, prior to the commencement of coverage under this agreement and following exhaustion of the Company's primary insurance coverage, during which the Company will be solely responsible for defense costs and indemnity payments, the duration of which would be subject to the scope of damage awards and settlements paid.

Based on the settlements made to date and the number of claims dismissed or withdrawn for lack of product identification, the Company believes that the relief sought (when specified) does not bear a reasonable relationship to its potential liability. Based upon the Company's experience to date, including the trend in annual defense and settlement costs incurred to date, and other available information (including the availability of excess insurance), the Company does not believe these cases will have a material adverse effect on its financial position and results of operations or cash flows.
Ordinary Course Claims
The Company is subject to other claims and litigation in the ordinary course of business, but does not believe that any such claim or litigation will have a material adverse effect on its financial position and results of operations or cash flows.

The Company did not incur significant stock-based compensation expense related to stock options during the three or nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011.
Restricted Shares
During the nine months ended September 30, 2012 , the Company issued 6,302 shares related to director fee deferrals. The Company allows for its non-employee independent directors to make an annual election to defer all or a portion of their directors fees and to receive the deferred amount in cash or equity. Certain of the Company's directors have elected to defer all or a portion of their directors fees and to receive the amount in Company common stock at a future date.
The Company also awarded multiple restricted stock grants during the first quarter of 2012 . First, the Company granted 19,532 restricted shares of common stock to certain employees which are subject only to a service condition and vest ratably over three years so long as the employee remains with the Company.
Secondly, the Company awarded 60,665 restr icted shares of co mmon stock to certain employees during the first quarter of 2012 . These shares are subject only to a service condition and vest on the first anniversary date of the award. The awards were made to participants in the Company's short-term Incentive Compensation Plan ("ICP"), where, beginning in the 2010 plan year, all ICP participants whose target ICP annual award exceeds $20 thousand receive 80% of the value in earned cash and 20% in the form of a restricted stock award upon finalization of the award amount in the first quarter e ach year, following the previous plan year.
The Company awarded 206,064 r estricted shares to certain Company key employees during the first quarter of 2012 . Half of the restricted shares granted are service-based restricted stock units. These awards vest ratably over three years . The other half of the shares are subject to a performance condition and are earned based upon the achievement of two performance metrics over a period of three calendar years, beginning on January 1, 2012 and ending on December 31, 2014. Of this award, 75% of the awards are earned based upon the Company's earnings per share ("EPS") cumulative average growth rate ("EPS CAGR") over the performance period. The remaining 25% of the grants are earned based upon the Company's cash generation results. Cash generation is defined as the Company's cumulative three year cash flow from operating activities less capital expenditures, as publicly reported by the Company, plus or minus special items that may occur from time-to-time, divided by the Company's three-year income from continuing operations as publicly reported by the Company, plus or minus special items that may occur from time-to-time. Depending on the performance achieved for these two metrics, the amount of shares earned can vary from 30% of the target award to a maximum amount of 200% of the target award for the cash flow metric and 250% of the target award for the EPS CAGR metric. However, if these performance metrics are not achieved, no award will be earned. The performance awards vest on a "cliff" basis at the end of the three-year performance period.
During the first quarter of 2012 , the Company also awarded 166,530 restricted shares to certain Company key employees which are solely performance-based grants. Of this award, 60% are earned based on 2012 earnings per share growth, and the remaining 40% are earned based on the EPS CAGR for 2012 and 2013. Depending on the performance achieved for these two specific metrics, the amount of shares earned can vary from 30% of the target award to a maximum amount of 250% of the target award. However, if these performance metrics are not achieved, no award will be earned.
In addition, the Company granted 16,440 restricted shares of its common stock to its non-employee independent directors, which vest one year from date of grant so long as the director and/or Company does not terminate his services prior to the vesting date.

15 . New Accounting Pronouncements
In July 2012, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Accounting Standards Update 2012-2, "Intangibles - Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Testing Indefinite-Lived Intangible Assets for Impairment" ("ASU 2012-2"). ASU 2012-2 gives companies the option to perform a qualitative assessment to determine whether it is more likely than not (a likelihood of more than 50%) that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount, and in some cases, skip the two-step impairment test. The objective of the revised standard is to simplify how an entity tests indefinite-lived intangible assets for impairment and to reduce the cost and complexity of the annual impairment test. ASU 2012-2 will be effective annual and interim impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after September 15, 2012, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently evaluating this guidance and the potential impact of the revised standard on the Company's annual indefinite-lived intangible asset impairment test.
16 . Subsequent Event
In October 2012, the Company amended and restated its existing Credit Agreement (the "Amended and Restated Credit Agreement" or "ARCA"), pursuant to which the Company was able to reduce interest rates, extend maturities and increase its available liquidity. Below is a summary of the key terms under the ARCA:
Instrument
 
Amount
($ in millions)
 
Maturity Date
 
Interest Rate
Senior Secured Revolving Credit facility
 
$
250.0

 
10/11/2017
 
LIBOR plus 2.00%
Senior Secured Term Loan A facility
 
$
200.0

 
10/11/2017
 
LIBOR plus 2.00%
Senior Secured Term Loan B facility
 
$
200.0

 
10/11/2019
 
LIBOR plus 2.75% with a 1.00% LIBOR floor
The Company used the proceeds from borrowings under the ARCA to repay outstanding amounts under the existing Credit Agreement and to complete a tender offer for its Senior Notes, pursuant to which $176.5 million aggregate principal amount were repurchased, representing 88.3% of the aggregate principal amount outstanding.
The Company incurred approximately $40 million in cash costs during the fourth quarter to complete the above debt restructuring, primarily related to the tender offer premium in connection with the repurchase of the Senior Notes.
17 . Supplemental Guarantor Condensed Consolidating Financial Information
Under an indenture dated December 29, 2009, TriMas Corporation, the parent company ("Parent"), issued its Senior Notes in a total principal amount of $250.0 million (face value). The outstanding Senior Notes are fully and unconditionally guaranteed on a joint and several basis by substantially all of the Company's domestic subsidiaries ("Guarantor Subsidiaries”). The Company's non-domestic subsidiaries and TSPC, Inc. have not guaranteed the Senior Notes ("Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries"). The Guarantor Subsidiaries have also guaranteed amounts outstanding under the Company's Credit Agreement.
The accompanying supplemental guarantor condensed, consolidating financial information is presented using the equity method of accounting for all periods presented. Under this method, investments in subsidiaries are recorded at cost and adjusted for the Company's share in the subsidiaries' cumulative results of operations, capital contributions and distributions and other changes in equity. Elimination entries relate primarily to the elimination of investments in subsidiaries and associated intercompany balances and transactions.
