ITEM 2.06 MATERIAL IMPAIRMENTS

As previously disclosed in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed on August 4, 2011, executive management of Navistar International Corporation (the “Company”) committed to close its International truck manufacturing plant in Chatham, Ontario and Workhorse chassis plant in Union City, Indiana, and to significantly scale back operations at its Monaco RV headquarters and motor coach manufacturing plant in Coburg, Oregon. As a result of these actions, as well as other factors, the Company concluded that there was a trigger event for the review for impairment of approximately $120 million of various long-lived assets, including certain intangible assets, related to these facilities. At that time, the Company was unable to make a good faith estimate of the amount or range of impairment charges expected to be incurred.

The Chatham and Workhorse asset groups were reviewed for recoverability by comparing the carrying values to the estimated future undiscounted cash flows and those carrying values were determined to not be fully recoverable. We utilized the cost approach and market approach to determine the fair value of certain assets within the asset groups. The other portions of the asset groups’ fair values were based on estimates of future cash flows developed by management.

As of August 26, 2011, the Company evaluated the recoverability of the $120 million of long-lived assets, including intangible assets, as originally disclosed in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed on August 4, 2011 and determined that the amount of impairment charges expected to be incurred is approximately $60 million. Relating to our Chatham, Ontario plant, we anticipate impairments of property and equipment of approximately $10 million due to the closure of the facility. Relating to our Union City, Indiana plant, we anticipate impairments of intangible assets of approximately $50 million due to market deterioration and reduction in demand below previously anticipated levels. These impairments are not expected to result in cash outlays, and we expect these impairments to be incurred during the third quarter of 2011.

Such forward-looking statements only speak as of the date of this report and the Company assumes no obligation to update the information included in this report. Such forward-looking statements include information concerning our possible or assumed future results of operations, including any anticipated charges that may be incurred or other efficiencies that may be achieved as a result of the above closures. These statements often include words such as “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “estimate,” or similar expressions.
