|16:16 EDT||TRW||TRW Automotive transfers about $4B of pension liabilities to L&G|
TRW Automotive disclosed in a filing that on November 24 the trustee of the TRW Pension Scheme in the U.K., with respect to which a wholly-owned subsidiary of TRW Automotive Holdings is the principal employer, entered into a group annuity contract with Legal & General Assurance Society Limited in the U.K., a subsidiary of Legal & General Group, that requires L&G to pay and administer future annuity payments to certain of the U.K. Scheme’s members. Under the agreement, approximately $4B of pension liabilities under the U.K. Scheme were transferred to L&G in a partial buyout that was funded predominantly with U.K. Scheme assets, although a subsidiary of the company will make additional contributions as part of the company’s overall abatement plans described below. This transaction is part of the company’s overall plan to permanently abate a significant portion of its pension liabilities in the U.K., as well as certain of its pension liabilities in the U.S. and Canada, as previously outlined in the company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 26. The company expects these abatement actions to be substantially complete by December 31, 2014. In connection with the abatement actions, the company expects certain of its subsidiaries to make additional pension contributions in the fourth quarter of approximately $225M to $250M. The company further anticipates accounting for the abatement actions as a settlement of pension obligations under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, and to incur pre-tax curtailment charges in the fourth quarter in the range of $875M to $925M.
