PART III NARRATIVE
State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.
In connection with preparation of the Form 10-Q for the three month period ended March 31, 2005 of Ampco-Pittsburgh Corporation (the Corporation), the Corporation has identified two accounting issues which prevent it from filing its Form 10-Q for the three month period ended March 31, 2005 within the required time period. Specifically, based on supplemental guidance recently issued, the Corporation has concluded that auction-rate securities do not meet the definition of cash equivalents. Accordingly, like many other companies that invest in auction-rate securities, the Corporation will reclassify its investments in auction-rate securities from cash and cash equivalents to short-term marketable securities. Secondly, the Corporation has outstanding Industrial Revenue Bond debt which can be put back to the Corporation on short notice if the remarketing agent is unsuccessful in its efforts. Although the underlying debt has maturities of a long-term nature, there is no guarantee that the debt can be remarketed; accordingly, the debt is required to be classified as current.
The Corporation is in the process of making the necessary changes to restate its 2004 consolidated financial statements, to be included in the Form 10-Q for the three month period ended March 31, 2005, to reclassify its investments in auction-rate securities from cash and cash equivalents to short-term marketable securities and its Industrial Revenue Bond debt from a long-term liability to a current liability. Additionally, management, including the principal executive officer and principal financial officer, are evaluating the implications of these changes on the Corporations internal control over financial reporting.
Supplementary, we advise that the Corporation intends to file an amendment on Form 10-K/A to its Annual Report to Shareholders on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2004, as soon as practicable.
