29 Concluding Remarks It is not likely that the planned/announced actions by Europe s OEMs will be sufficient to address the structural overcapacity. Stock problems of 2008/2009 are not being repeated, for most. Fiat, PSA, Renault, Ford and GM are all under pressure. Not clear how EU can help significantly (as Mr Marchionne as suggested) while the capacity problem is focused on only part of the European industry. Watch for: Eurozone crisis developments (obvious), China slowdown (Premiums), further model slippage or cancellation, big decisions on European strategy by volume OEMs (speculative, but distinct possibility) LMC Automotive Limited, All Rights Reserved.

51 Global Automaker Outlook Progression And Distribution Outlook Distribution: July October
52 Asian Auto Sector - Our View October 2012 Japanese automakers are on recovery path from supply chain disruptions of 2011 Japanese automakers and suppliers suffered from East Japan Earthquake and Thai floods in 2011 Market share losses occurred on less inventory Strong yen added pressures on profitability Recovering outputs and sales are supporting the results of many automakers and suppliers Korean automakers (Hyundai & Kia) continue to grow and improve position and profitability Success in fundamentally enhancing product quality and brands and advancing global marketing capability Some modest additional share gains while Japanese automakers suffered from supply chain disruptions Economic uncertainty remains the key variable globally Consumer confidence remains fragile Europe is headed for fifth consecutive year of registration decline; 2013 could be sixth year China is slowing, but how much and for how long? Worsening Japan-China diplomatic ties amid a territorial dispute may put another burden on Japanese automakers Rating outlook is stable for most Asian automakers, but outlook on Toyota remains negative Honda shows strong recovery in 2012 and Nissan continues to show robust performance Ratings on Hyundai and Kia were upgraded to BBB+/Stable in March 2012 Outlook on Tata is positive based on our expectation that Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), Tata s key subsidiary, will sustain its solid operating performance Outlook on Toyota remain negative because Toyota s overproduction in Japan has the potential to delay a recovery in its earnings 22.
53 Japanese Automakers - Challenges October 2012 Long-term decline in domestic demand and strong Japanese yen remain key challenges Domestic demand shows long-term decline since the peak in 1996 Total domestic sales during the first 8 months jumped 46% and we expect domestic demand recovers to 5 million units in 2012, but slowdown is anticipated after October as eco-car subsidies program ended Strong Japanese yen continues to add pressure on profitability Japanese yen appreciated more than 30% against US Dollar in the past 5 years (15% in the past 3 years) Around 40% appreciation against Euro in the past five years (25% in the past 3 years) Further expansion of overseas production and overseas procurement To minimize the effect of unfavorable exchange rates and declining domestic demand Overcapacity/ overproduction in Japan remain a major challenge Maintaining particularly strong position in ASEAN (Association of SouthEast Asian Nations) countries Can they maintain their leading positions in HV, PHV, and EV? Uncertainties in China China is slowing, but how much and for how long? Worsening Japan-China diplomatic ties amid a territorial dispute may put another burden on Japanese automakers 23.
54 Summary Of 2012 Regional Demand Outlook Region 2012 Estimate Comment and source U.S million light-vehicle sales First-eight months (SAAR) was 14.2 million Recession case is 12.9 million (S&P estimates) Europe European passenger vehicle registrations down at least 7% Down 6.8% for first six months 2012 (EU27). But registration % change varies widely by country--flat or up in some and down sharply in others. (S&P estimates, ACEA and LMC Automotive Ltd.) Japan Passenger vehicles rise 12%- 19% We expect improved supply conditions and the government's new eco-car subsidy program to boost new vehicle sales and recovery from 2011 supply disruption events. (S&P estimates) Brazil China India Passenger vehicles rise single digit % Passenger vehicles rise single digit % Low single digit % for passenger vehicles Brazilian economic growth and currency levels are key. Tariffs and prospective capacity additions pressure OEs even if sales do rise. (S&P estimates and LMC) Slower-than-expected growth than in recent years; growth will likely vary by sector - luxury versus domestic automakers for example. (S&P estimates and LMC) Passenger car market grew 2.2% in fiscal March 2012, due to multiple hikes in fuel prices and high interest rates. Car sales in India fell for the first time in 10 months in August 2012 (S&P estimates and SIAM) 24.

65 Japanese and Asian Automakers 35.
66 Summary Of Four Rated Japanese Automakers Toyota is AA- / Negative. The negative outlook reflects our view: Toyota s overproduction in Japan has the potential to delay a recovery in its earnings Toyota continues to face adverse currency rates impacts Honda is A+ / Stable Strong recovery prospects in sales and profits over the next two years Honda solidly maintains its conservative financial policy and modest financial risk profile Nissan is BBB+ / Stable Robust financial performance expected in the next few years Renault s credit quality constraints upside potential in Nissan s ratings. Mitsubishi is B+ / Stable Gradual recovery in profitability expected over the next one to two years Strong position in ASEAN markets and cost reduction to support gradual improvement All four companies to show recovery in profits in 2012 Recovery in sales and continuous cost reductions support expectations for sustained profits Increasing production/procurement in vehicles produced overseas to gradually reduce exposures to Japanese Yen 36.
67 Summary Of Three Rated Asian (non-japan) Automakers Hyundai is BBB+ / Stable The rating was upgraded from BBB/Positive in March 2012 We expect that Hyundai will continue to maintain market position and profitability despite increasing competition In the first half of 2012, Hyundai increased its unit sales by 8% year-on-year Kia is BBB+ / Stable We equalize ratings on Kia and Hyundai, reflecting Kia s close relationship with, and expected strong support from, parent company (Hyundai) We expect that Kia will continue to maintain market position and profitability despite increasing competition In the first half of 2012, Kia increased its unit sales by 12% year-on-year Tata is BB / Positive. The positive outlook reflects our view: Tata will sustain its operating performance and maintain its debt protection measures despite an increase in engineering and product development expenditure at Tata fully owned subsidiary JLR (BB- /Positive/-) Tata s business risk profile is supported by JLR's improving competitive position and Tata s dominant position in the Indian commercial vehicle market 37.
68 Supply Chain Risk: Takeaways From The earthquake in Japan and floods in Thailand affected our ratings outlook on Japanese automakers and suppliers in Supply disruptions impaired some operations in 1H of fiscal 2011 Market share losses occurred on less inventory Some modest share gains for non-japanese automakers Market shares of Japanese automakers are recovering in the U.S., etc. Events in Japan and Thailand did not affect our ratings or outlooks on any of the non-japanese automakers or suppliers. Supply chain disruptions need to be watched! No widespread changes to the supply chain yet? But automakers should have better visibility into supply chain More dual sourcing or qualifying new suppliers? Costly! 38.
69 Asian Auto Suppliers 39.
70 Asia-Based Auto Suppliers Many companies are affiliated with large automakers (such as Toyota Motor and Hyundai Motor) Limited universe when compared with the U.S. Denso, Aisin Seiki and Toyota Industries: More than 50% of sales rely on Toyota Motor and its group companies Hyundai Mobis: 80% - 90% of its auto parts modules sales rely on Hyundai Motor/Kia Motors Majority of corporate credit ratings are in the investment grade, but high reliance on parent /group is one of constraining factors for Toyota and Hyundai group suppliers Economic uncertainty remains; historical challenges (production volatility) will return 40.
