PART I — FINANCIAL INFORMATION

ITEM 1 — CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

INTRODUCTION TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
We have prepared the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Lear Corporation and subsidiaries pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. We believe that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading when read in conjunction with the financial statements and the notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, for the year ended December 31, 2016 .
The financial information presented reflects all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) which are, in our opinion, necessary for a fair presentation of the results of operations, cash flows and financial position for the interim periods presented. These results are not necessarily indicative of a full year’s results of operations.

The Company’s main customers are automotive original equipment manufacturers. The Company operates facilities worldwide.
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Lear, a Delaware corporation, and the wholly owned and less than wholly owned subsidiaries controlled by Lear. In addition, Lear consolidates all entities, including variable interest entities, in which it has a controlling financial interest. Investments in affiliates in which Lear does not have control, but does have the ability to exercise significant influence over operating and financial policies, are accounted for under the equity method.
The Company’s annual financial results are reported on a calendar year basis, and quarterly interim results are reported using a thirteen week reporting calendar.
Certain amounts in the prior period’s financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the presentation used in the quarter ended July 1, 2017 .
Cost of Sales and Selling, General and Administrative Expenses
Cost of sales includes material, labor and overhead costs associated with the manufacture and distribution of the Company’s products. Distribution costs include inbound freight costs, purchasing and receiving costs, inspection costs, warehousing costs and other costs of the Company’s distribution network.

The Antolin Seating business is comprised of just-in-time seat assembly, as well as seat structures, mechanisms and seat covers with annual sales of approximately $370 million .
The Antolin Seating acquisition was accounted for as a business combination, and accordingly, the assets acquired and liabilities assumed are included in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of July 1, 2017 . The operating results and cash flows of Antolin Seating are included in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements from the date of acquisition and in the Company's seating segment.

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Continued)

Recognized goodwill is attributable to the assembled workforce, expected synergies and other intangible assets that do not qualify for separate recognition.
Intangible assets consist of provisional amounts recognized for the fair value of customer-based assets and were based on an independent appraisal. Customer-based assets include Antolin Seating's established relationships with its customers and the ability of these customers to generate future economic profits for the Company. It is currently estimated that these intangible assets have a weighted average useful life of approximately fifteen years.
The purchase price and related allocation are preliminary and will be revised as a result of additional information regarding the assets acquired and liabilities assumed, including, but not limited to, certain tax attributes, contingent liabilities and revisions of provisional estimates of fair values resulting from the completion of independent appraisals and valuations of property, plant and equipment and intangible assets.
The pro-forma effects of this acquisition do not materially impact the Company's reported results for any period presented.
For further information on acquired assets measured at fair value, see Note 16 , " Financial Instruments ."

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Continued)

In the first half of 2017 , the Company recorded charges of $31.6 million in connection with its restructuring actions. These charges consist of $23.3 million recorded as cost of sales, $8.6 million recorded as selling, general and administrative expenses and net credits of $0.3 million recorded as other income. The restructuring charges consist of employee termination costs of $26.9 million , fixed asset impairment charges of $0.4 million , a pension benefit plan settlement loss of $0.8 million and contract termination costs of $1.4 million , as well as other related costs of $2.1 million . Employee termination benefits were recorded based on existing union and employee contracts, statutory requirements, completed negotiations and Company policy. Fixed asset impairment charges relate to the disposal of buildings, leasehold improvements and/or machinery and equipment with carrying values of $0.4 million in excess of related estimated fair values.
The Company expects to incur approximately $50 million of additional restructuring costs related to activities initiated as of July 1, 2017 , and expects that the components of such costs will be consistent with its historical experience. Any future restructuring actions will depend upon market conditions, customer actions and other factors.

If the net book value exceeds the undiscounted cash flows, an impairment loss is measured and recognized. Except as discussed below, the Company does not believe that there were any indicators that would have resulted in long-lived asset impairment charges as of July 1, 2017 . The Company will, however, continue to assess the impact of any significant industry events on the realization of its long-lived assets.
In the first six months of 2017 and 2016 , the Company recognized fixed asset impairment charges of $0.4 million and $3.2 million , respectively, in conjunction with its restructuring actions (Note 3 , " Restructuring ").

Goodwill is not amortized but is tested for impairment on at least an annual basis. Impairment testing is required more often than annually if an event or circumstance indicates that an impairment is more likely than not to have occurred. In conducting its annual impairment testing, the Company may first perform a qualitative assessment of whether it is more likely than not that a reporting unit’s fair value is less than its carrying amount. If not, no further goodwill impairment testing is required. If it is more likely than not that a reporting unit’s fair value is less than its carrying amount, or if the Company elects not to perform a qualitative assessment of a reporting unit, the Company then compares the fair value of the reporting unit to the related net book value. If the net book value of a reporting unit exceeds its fair value, an impairment loss is measured and recognized. The Company conducts its annual impairment testing as of the first day of its fourth quarter.
The Company does not believe that there were any indicators that would have resulted in goodwill impairment charges as of July 1, 2017 . The Company will, however, continue to assess the impact of significant events or circumstances on its recorded goodwill.

On January 1, 2017, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2016-09, "Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting." The new standard requires that the tax impact related to the difference between share-based compensation for book and tax purposes be recognized as income tax benefit or expense in the Company’s condensed consolidated statement of comprehensive income in the reporting period in which such awards vest. The standard also required a modified retrospective adoption for previously unrecognized excess tax benefits. Accordingly, the Company recognized a deferred tax asset of $54.5 million and a corresponding credit to retained earnings in conjunction with the adoption. The effects of adopting the other provisions of ASU 2016-09 were not significant.
In the first six months of 2017 and 2016 , the provision for income taxes was primarily impacted by the level and mix of earnings among tax jurisdictions. In the first six months of 2017 , the Company recognized net tax benefits of $54.4 million , of which $28.7 million related to the reversal of valuation allowances on the deferred tax assets of certain foreign subsidiaries, $15.8 million related to the change in the accounting for share-based compensation discussed above and $9.9 million related to restructuring charges and various other items. In the first six months of 2016 , the Company recognized net tax benefits of $12.1 million related to restructuring charges and various other items. In addition, the Company recognized a gain of $30.3 million related to the consolidation of an affiliate, for which no tax expense was provided. Excluding these items, the effective tax rate for the first six months of 2017 and 2016 approximated the U.S. federal statutory income tax rate of 35% adjusted for income taxes on foreign earnings, losses and remittances, valuation allowances, tax credits, income tax incentives and other permanent items.
The Company’s current and future provision for income taxes is impacted by the initial recognition of and changes in valuation allowances in certain countries. The Company intends to maintain these allowances until it is more likely than not that the deferred tax assets will be realized. The Company’s future provision for income taxes will include no tax benefit with respect to losses incurred and, except for certain jurisdictions, no tax expense with respect to income generated in these countries until the

respective valuation allowances are eliminated. Accordingly, income taxes are impacted by changes in valuation allowances and the mix of earnings among jurisdictions. The Company evaluates the realizability of its deferred tax assets on a quarterly basis. In completing this evaluation, the Company considers all available evidence in order to determine whether, based on the weight of the evidence, a valuation allowance for its deferred tax assets is necessary. Such evidence includes historical results, future reversals of existing taxable temporary differences and expectations for future taxable income (exclusive of the reversal of temporary differences and carryforwards), as well as the implementation of feasible and prudent tax planning strategies. If, based on the weight of the evidence, it is more likely than not that all or a portion of the Company’s deferred tax assets will not be realized, a valuation allowance is recorded. If operating results improve or decline on a continual basis in a particular jurisdiction, the Company’s decision regarding the need for a valuation allowance could change, resulting in either the initial recognition or reversal of a valuation allowance in that jurisdiction, which could have a significant impact on income tax expense in the period recognized and subsequent periods.
For further information related to the Company's income taxes, see Note 7, "Income Taxes," to the consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 .

( 12 ) Net Income Per Share Attributable to Lear
Basic net income per share attributable to Lear is computed by dividing net income attributable to Lear by the average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Common shares issuable upon the satisfaction of certain conditions pursuant to a contractual agreement are considered common shares outstanding and are included in the computation of basic net income per share attributable to Lear.
Diluted net income per share attributable to Lear is computed using the treasury stock method by dividing net income attributable to Lear by the average number of common shares outstanding, including the dilutive effect of common stock equivalents using the average share price during the period.

In the three months ended July 2, 2016 , foreign currency translation adjustments are related primarily to the weakening of the Chinese renminbi and the Euro relative to the U.S. dollar and include pretax gains of $0.1 million related to intercompany transactions for which settlement is not planned or anticipated in the foreseeable future.
In the six months ended July 2, 2016 , foreign currency translation adjustments are related primarily to the strengthening of the Euro and Brazilian real relative to the U.S. dollar, partially offset by the weakening of the Chinese renminbi relative to the U.S. dollar, and include pretax losses of $0.5 million related to intercompany transactions for which settlement is not planned or anticipated in the foreseeable future.

Lear Corporation Stockholders’ Equity
Common Stock Share Repurchase Program
In February 2017, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a $658.8 million increase to the existing common stock share repurchase program to provide for a remaining aggregate repurchase authorization of $1.0 billion and extended the term of the program to December 31, 2019. In the first six months of 2017 , the Company repurchased, in aggregate, $254.3 million of its outstanding common stock ( 1,793,067 shares at an average purchase price of $141.84 per share, excluding commissions), of which $239.7 million was paid in cash with the remaining amount to be paid in the third quarter of 2017. As of the end of the second quarter of 2017 , the Company has a remaining repurchase authorization of $745.7 million under its ongoing common stock share repurchase program. The Company may implement these share repurchases through a variety of methods, including, but not limited to, open market purchases, accelerated stock repurchase programs and structured repurchase transactions. The extent to which the Company will repurchase its outstanding common stock and the timing of such

19

Table of Contents
LEAR CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Continued)

repurchases will depend upon its financial condition, prevailing market conditions, alternative uses of capital and other factors. In addition, the Company’s Credit Agreement places certain limitations on the Company’s ability to repurchase its common stock.
Since the first quarter of 2011, the Company's Board of Directors has authorized $4.1 billion in share repurchases under its common stock share repurchase program. As of the end of the second quarter of 2017 , the Company has repurchased, in aggregate, $3.3 billion of its outstanding common stock, at an average price of $77.33 per share, excluding commissions and related fees.
In addition to shares repurchased under the Company’s common stock share repurchase program described in the preceding paragraphs, the Company classified shares withheld from the settlement of the Company’s restricted stock unit and performance share awards to cover minimum tax withholding requirements as common stock held in treasury in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets as of July 1, 2017 and December 31, 2016 .
As approved by the Board of Directors, in May 2017, the Company retired 8.0 million shares of common stock held in treasury. These retired shares are reflected as authorized, but not issued, in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of July 1, 2017 . The retirement of shares held in treasury resulted in a reduction in the par value of common stock, additional paid-in capital and retained earnings of $0.1 million , $155.9 million and $735.5 million , respectively. These reductions were offset by a corresponding reduction in shares held in treasury of $891.5 million . Accordingly, there was no effect on stockholders’ equity as a result of this transaction.
Quarterly Dividend
In the first half of 2017 and 2016 , the Company’s Board of Directors declared quarterly cash dividends of $0.50 and $0.30 per share of common stock, respectively. In the first half of 2017 , declared dividends totaled $71.0 million , and dividends paid totaled $70.7 million . In the first half of 2016 , declared dividends totaled $45.6 million , and dividends paid totaled $47.0 million . Dividends payable on common shares to be distributed under the Company’s stock-based compensation program and common shares contemplated as part of the Company’s emergence from Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings will be paid when such common shares are distributed.

( 14 ) Legal and Other Contingencies
As of July 1, 2017 and December 31, 2016 , the Company had recorded reserves for pending legal disputes, including commercial disputes and other matters, of $8.8 million and $11.0 million , respectively. Such reserves reflect amounts recognized in accordance with GAAP and exclude the cost of legal representation. Product liability and warranty reserves are recorded separately from legal reserves, as described below.
Commercial Disputes
The Company is involved from time to time in legal proceedings and claims, including, without limitation, commercial or contractual disputes with its customers, suppliers and competitors. These disputes vary in nature and are usually resolved by negotiations between the parties.
Product Liability and Warranty Matters
In the event that use of the Company’s products results in, or is alleged to result in, bodily injury and/or property damage or other losses, the Company may be subject to product liability lawsuits and other claims. Such lawsuits generally seek compensatory damages, punitive damages and attorneys’ fees and costs. In addition, if any of the Company’s products are, or are alleged to be, defective, the Company may be required or requested by its customers to participate in a recall or other corrective action involving such products. Certain of the Company’s customers have asserted claims against the Company for costs related to recalls or other corrective actions involving its products. The Company can provide no assurances that it will not experience material claims in the future or that it will not incur significant costs to defend such claims.
To a lesser extent, the Company is a party to agreements with certain of its customers, whereby these customers may pursue claims against the Company for contribution of all or a portion of the amounts sought in connection with product liability and warranty claims.
In certain instances, allegedly defective products may be supplied by Tier 2 suppliers. The Company may seek recovery from its suppliers of materials or services included within the Company’s products that are associated with product liability and warranty claims. The Company carries insurance for certain legal matters, including product liability claims, but such coverage

may be limited. The Company does not maintain insurance for product warranty or recall matters. Future dispositions with respect to the Company’s product liability claims that were subject to compromise under the Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings will be satisfied out of a common stock and warrant reserve established for that purpose.
The Company records product warranty reserves when liability is probable and related amounts are reasonably estimable.

Environmental Matters
The Company is subject to local, state, federal and foreign laws, regulations and ordinances which govern activities or operations that may have adverse environmental effects and which impose liability for clean-up costs resulting from past spills, disposals or other releases of hazardous wastes and environmental compliance. The Company’s policy is to comply with all applicable environmental laws and to maintain an environmental management program based on ISO 14001 to ensure compliance with this standard. However, the Company currently is, has been and in the future may become the subject of formal or informal enforcement actions or procedures.
As of July 1, 2017 and December 31, 2016 , the Company had recorded environmental reserves of $9.0 million . The Company does not believe that the environmental liabilities associated with its current and former properties will have a material adverse impact on its business, financial condition, results of operations or cash flows; however, no assurances can be given in this regard.
Other Matters
The Company is involved from time to time in various other legal proceedings and claims, including, without limitation, intellectual property matters, tax claims and employment matters. Although the outcome of any legal matter cannot be predicted with certainty, the Company does not believe that any of the other legal proceedings or claims in which the Company is currently involved, either individually or in the aggregate, will have a material adverse impact on its business, financial condition, results of operations or cash flows. However, no assurances can be given in this regard.
Although the Company records reserves for legal disputes, product liability and warranty claims and environmental and other matters in accordance with GAAP, the ultimate outcomes of these matters are inherently uncertain. Actual results may differ significantly from current estimates.

( 15 ) Segment Reporting
The Company has two reportable operating segments: seating, which includes complete seat systems and all major seat components, including seat covers and surface materials such as leather and fabric, seat structures and mechanisms, seat foam and headrests, and E-Systems, which includes complete electrical distribution systems, electronic control modules and associated software and wireless communication modules. Key components in the electrical distribution system include wiring harnesses, terminals and connectors and junction boxes, including components for high power and hybrid electric systems. The other category includes unallocated costs related to corporate headquarters, regional headquarters and the elimination of intercompany activities, none of which meets the requirements for being classified as an operating segment.
The Company evaluates the performance of its operating segments based primarily on (i) revenues from external customers, (ii) pretax income before equity in net income of affiliates, interest expense and other expense, net, ("segment earnings") and (iii) cash flows, being defined as segment earnings less capital expenditures plus depreciation and amortization.

( 16 ) Financial Instruments
Debt Instruments
The carrying values of the Company’s debt instruments vary from their fair values. The fair values were determined by reference to the quoted market prices of these securities (Level 2 input based on the GAAP fair value hierarchy). The estimated fair value, as well as the carrying value, of the Company's debt instruments are shown below (in millions):

Accounts Receivable Factoring
One of the Company's European subsidiaries has an uncommitted factoring agreement, which provides for aggregate purchases of specified customer accounts of up to €200 million . As of July 1, 2017 , there were no factored receivables outstanding. The Company cannot provide any assurances that this factoring facility will be available or utilized in the future.
Marketable Equity Securities
Included in other current assets in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets as of July 1, 2017 and December 31, 2016 , are $37.8 million and $30.2 million , respectively, of marketable equity securities, which the Company accounts for under the fair value option. Accordingly, unrealized gains and losses arising from changes in the fair value of the marketable equity securities are recognized in the accompanying condensed consolidated statement of income as a component of other expense, net. The fair value of the marketable equity securities is determined by reference to quoted market prices in active markets (Level 1 input based on the GAAP fair value hierarchy).
Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities
The Company has used derivative financial instruments, including forwards, futures, options, swaps and other derivative contracts to reduce the effects of fluctuations in foreign exchange rates and interest rates and the resulting variability of the Company’s operating results. The Company is not a party to leveraged derivatives. The Company’s derivative financial instruments are subject to master netting arrangements that provide for the net settlement of contracts, by counterparty, in the event of default or termination. On the date that a derivative contract for a hedging instrument is entered into, the Company designates the derivative as either (1) a hedge of the exposure to changes in the fair value of a recognized asset or liability or of an unrecognized firm commitment (a fair value hedge), (2) a hedge of the exposure of a forecasted transaction or of the variability in the cash flows of a recognized asset or liability (a cash flow hedge), (3) a hedge of a net investment in a foreign operation (a net investment hedge) or (4) a contract not designated as a hedging instrument.
For a fair value hedge, both the effective and ineffective portions of the change in the fair value of the derivative are recorded in earnings and reflected in the condensed consolidated statement of income on the same line as the gain or loss on the hedged item attributable to the hedged risk. For a cash flow hedge, the effective portion of the change in the fair value of the derivative is recorded in accumulated other comprehensive loss in the condensed consolidated balance sheet. When the underlying hedged transaction is realized, the gain or loss included in accumulated other comprehensive loss is recorded in earnings and reflected

23

Table of Contents
LEAR CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Continued)

in the condensed consolidated statement of income on the same line as the gain or loss on the hedged item attributable to the hedged risk. For a net investment hedge, the effective portion of the change in the fair value of the derivative is recorded in cumulative translation adjustment, which is a component of accumulated other comprehensive loss in the condensed consolidated balance sheet. In addition, changes in the fair value of contracts not designated as hedging instruments and the ineffective portion of both cash flow and net investment hedges are recorded in earnings and reflected in the condensed consolidated statement of income as other expense, net.
Foreign Exchange
The Company uses forwards, swaps and other derivative contracts to reduce the effects of fluctuations in foreign exchange rates on known foreign currency exposures. Gains and losses on the derivative instruments are intended to offset gains and losses on the hedged transaction in an effort to reduce exposure to fluctuations in foreign exchange rates. The principal currencies hedged by the Company include the Mexican peso, various European currencies, the Thai baht, the Japanese yen, the Canadian dollar and the Philippine peso.
