    THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2009
    ---------------------------------
    

    We posted sales of $3.6 billion for the first quarter ended March 31,
2009, a decrease of 46% from the first quarter of 2008. This lower sales level
was a result of decreases in our North American, European and Rest of World
production sales, complete vehicle assembly sales, and tooling, engineering
and other sales.
    During the first quarter of 2009, North American average dollar content
per vehicle increased by 4% while our European average dollar content per
vehicle decreased by 4%, each compared to the first quarter of 2008. In
addition, North American and European vehicle production declined 50% and 40%,
respectively, each compared to the first quarter of 2008.
    Complete vehicle assembly sales decreased 63% to $401 million for the
first quarter of 2009 compared to $1,086 million for the first quarter of
2008, while complete vehicle assembly volumes declined 72% to approximately
12,043 units.
    During the first quarter of 2009, operating loss was $230 million, net
loss was $200 million and diluted loss per share was $1.79, decreases of $516
million, $407 million and $ 3.57, respectively, each compared to the first
quarter of 2008.
    During the first quarter ended March 31, 2009, we generated cash from
operations of $9 million before changes in non-cash operating assets and
liabilities, and invested $52 million in non-cash operating assets and
liabilities. Total investment activities for the first quarter of 2009 were
$114 million, including $96 million in fixed asset additions, and $22 million
increase in other assets.
    A more detailed discussion of our consolidated financial results for the
first quarter ended March 31, 2009 is contained in the Management's Discussion
and Analysis of Results of Operations and Financial Position and the unaudited
interim consolidated financial statements and notes thereto, which are
attached to this Press Release.

    
    DIVIDENDS
    ---------
    

    Our Board of Directors yesterday voted to suspend our quarterly dividend
with respect to our Class A Subordinate Voting Shares and Class B shares.
    Vincent J. Galifi, our Executive Vice President and Chief Financial
Officer said, "We are facing the worst industry conditions in decades,
particularly in our primary markets. These conditions continue to adversely
affect our financial results and cash flow. We believe preserving cash and
maintaining a strong financial position is prudent at this time. Our Board's
decision to suspend our dividend as a result of continued uncertainty about
the timing of an industry recovery is consistent with this view. We will
continue to comply with our Corporate Constitution, which sets out minimum
dividend distributions, based on our profitability."
    We are the most diversified global automotive supplier. We design,
develop and manufacture technologically advanced automotive systems,
assemblies, modules and components, and engineer and assemble complete
vehicles, primarily for sale to original equipment manufacturers ("OEMs") of
cars and light trucks. Our capabilities include the design, engineering,
testing and manufacture of automotive interior systems; seating systems;
closure systems; body and chassis systems; vision systems; electronic systems;
exterior systems; powertrain systems; roof systems; as well as complete
vehicle engineering and assembly.
    We have approximately 70,000 employees in 240 manufacturing operations
and 86 product development, engineering and sales centres in 25 countries.

    OVERVIEW
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    

    We are the most diversified global automotive supplier. We design,
develop and manufacture technologically advanced automotive systems,
assemblies, modules and components, and engineer and assemble complete
vehicles, primarily for sale to original equipment manufacturers ("OEMs") of
cars and light trucks. Our capabilities include the design, engineering,
testing and manufacture of automotive interior systems; seating systems;
closure systems; body and chassis systems; vision systems; electronic systems;
exterior systems; powertrain systems; roof systems; as well as complete
vehicle engineering and assembly. We follow a corporate policy of functional
and operational decentralization, pursuant to which we conduct our operations
through divisions, each of which is an autonomous business unit operating
within pre-determined guidelines. As at March 31, 2009, we had 240
manufacturing divisions and 86 product development, engineering and sales
centres in 25 countries.
    Our operations are segmented on a geographic basis between North America,
Europe and Rest of World (primarily Asia, South America and Africa). A
Co-Chief Executive Officer heads management in each of our two primary
markets, North America and Europe. The role of the North American and European
management teams is to manage our interests to ensure a coordinated effort
across our different capabilities. In addition to maintaining key customer,
supplier and government contacts in their respective markets, our regional
management teams centrally manage key aspects of our operations while
permitting our divisions enough flexibility through our decentralized
structure to foster an entrepreneurial environment.

    
    HIGHLIGHTS
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    

    The first quarter of 2009 was among the most difficult periods in the
history of Magna due to exceptionally low production volumes at our customers.
Vehicle production in North America and Europe declined 50% and 40%,
respectively, both compared to the first quarter of 2008. Sequentially, first
quarter 2009 vehicle production in North America and Europe declined 37% and
13%, respectively, from the fourth quarter of 2008.
    The low North American production volumes are substantially attributable
to weak sales and high dealer inventory levels, particularly in the U.S. In
the fourth quarter of 2008, U.S. vehicle sales dropped to annualized rates not
seen in more than 25 years, and there has been no recovery in these sales
rates to date in 2009. European vehicle production declined at a slower pace,
due in part to "scrappage" programs announced by certain European governments,
including Germany, France, Italy and the United Kingdom. These programs
generally provide financial incentives for consumers to replace older, less
fuel-efficient and typically higher polluting vehicles, with new vehicles,
thereby stimulating vehicle sales. As a result, annualized European vehicle
sales recovered somewhat in February and March from the low point in January
2009. Nevertheless, while Western European monthly vehicle sales rates have
sequentially improved, they remain well below 2008 levels.
    Our first quarter 2009 financial results reflect the challenging
environment we are facing. Our total sales declined 46% in the first quarter
of 2009, as compared to the first quarter of 2008, as a result of the
significant declines in vehicle production in our two principal markets, along
with a 63% decline in complete vehicle assembly sales, and declines in Rest of
World sales and tooling and other sales. Operating income for the first
quarter of 2009 decreased $516 million, to a loss of $230 million, from income
of $286 million in the first quarter of 2008.
    Last week, Chrysler, our fourth largest customer based on 2008
consolidated sales, filed for bankruptcy protection in the United States. In
the first quarter of 2009, consolidated sales to Chrysler represented
approximately 11% of our consolidated total sales. While we have taken a
number of protective steps in anticipation of Chrysler's filing, including
participation in Canadian and U.S. supplier receivables protection programs,
we are currently unable to fully assess the extent to which the Chrysler
filing will impact our financial position and our operations.
    In addition, General Motors, our largest customer, representing
approximately 19% of our global sales in the first quarter of 2009, has
received billions of dollars in government loans and is in need of further
loans, has been given a mandate by the U.S. Government to restructure and
present an acceptable plan for future viability by the end of this month.
Depending on the U.S. Government's assessment of this plan, and other factors,
General Motors may seek bankruptcy protection. We are unable to assess the
extent to which General Motors' restructuring actions, including potentially
filing for bankruptcy protection, would impact our financial position or our
operations. However, since both Chrysler and General Motors are significant
customers, their respective restructurings could have a material negative
impact on our financial position and operations.
    We have taken a number of actions to offset the vehicle production
declines, and have initiated further cost-saving measures that we expect will
benefit our financial results for the remainder of this year and continue into
next year. However, General Motors and Chrysler have both recently announced
extended shutdowns of certain of their assembly plants and significant
production cuts at other plants over the coming months. As a result, our sales
and earnings will continue to be negatively impacted in the short term.
    This ongoing period of extremely low auto production in North America is
expected to further reduce our cash resources. However, it will likely have a
more severe impact on other suppliers whose financial condition is
substantially worse than ours. This should provide us with further
opportunities to gain additional business, either through acquisitions or
takeover business, and position us for recovery when North American auto
production returns to more sustainable levels.

    
    INDUSTRY TRENDS AND RISKS
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    

    Our success is primarily dependent upon the levels of North American and
European car and light truck production by our customers and the relative
amount of content we have on their various vehicle programs. A number of other
economic, industry and risk factors discussed in our Annual Information Form
and Annual Report on Form 40-F, each in respect of the year ended December 31,
2008, also affect our success. The economic, industry and risk factors remain
substantially unchanged in respect of the first quarter ended March 31, 2009,
except that:

    
    -   On April 30, 2009, Chrysler LLC (including its U.S. subsidiaries)
        filed voluntary petitions under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy
        Code in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York.
        As of the date of this MD&A, Chrysler's Canadian, Mexican and other
        international operations are not part of any bankruptcy filing. Given
        the complexity of Chapter 11 proceedings, we cannot predict whether
        Chrysler can successfully restructure and emerge from bankruptcy
        protection quickly. In the event that Chrysler is not successful in
        restructuring under Chapter 11, its assets could be liquidated under
        Chapter 7 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. It is too early to determine
        the impact to Magna of Chrysler's bankruptcy filing.

    -   Chrysler anticipates its Chapter 11 restructuring process to be
        completed within a period of 30 to 60 days from the bankruptcy filing
        and has announced that most of its manufacturing operations will be
        temporarily idled during such restructuring period. Given the
        potential for a drawn-out bankruptcy process or a liquidation of
        Chrysler's assets, we cannot predict when normal production schedules
        will resume at Chrysler facilities or whether they will resume at
        all.

    -   The continuing impact of the global recession on the global
        automotive industry and the rejection of General Motor's Viability
        Plan by the U.S. Auto Task Force, together with the precedent of
        Chrysler's bankruptcy filing, have further elevated the risk of a
        bankruptcy filing by General Motors possibly by the end of May 2009.

    -   In light of current inventory levels and low demand for its
        automobiles, General Motors recently announced that it intends to
        schedule shutdowns of a significant portion of its assembly
        operations in North America during the second and third quarters of
        2009. These shutdowns, combined with those at Chrysler during its
        restructuring, will further significantly reduce North American
        production volumes, which will adversely impact our operations and
        results for 2009.

    -   In response to recent customer risks, Magna is taking certain
        protective measures, including participation in the U.S. Automotive
        Supplier Support Program ("ASSP") recently implemented by the U.S.
        Treasury Department in respect of both Chrysler and General Motors,
        and the Accounts Receivable Insurance ("ARI") program sponsored by
        the Canadian Federal Government and administered by the Canadian
        Export Development Corporation. Magna's participation in the ASSP and
        ARI programs, and other actions taken by Magna and its subsidiaries,
        while significant to mitigate Magna's financial exposure to Chrysler
        and General Motors, will not provide full protection for Magna's
        Chrysler and General Motors receivables. It is too early to determine
        the extent to which Magna's receivables will be protected.

    -   As previously disclosed, we continue to review potential alternatives
        regarding the future of General Motors' European subsidiary Opel AG,
        including any role we may play in a potential transaction.
        Participation in any such transaction could be material, although the
        specific opportunities and risks would vary depending on the nature
        of such participation, if any.


    RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

    Average Foreign Exchange

                                               For the three months
                                                  ended March 31,
                                               --------------------
                                                    2009      2008    Change
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    1 Canadian dollar equals U.S. dollars          0.802     0.997     - 20%
    1 euro equals U.S. dollars                     1.302     1.499     - 13%
    1 British pound equals U.S. dollars            1.434     1.979     - 28%
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    

    The preceding table reflects the average foreign exchange rates between
the most common currencies in which we conduct business and our U.S. dollar
reporting currency. The significant changes in these foreign exchange rates
for the three months ended March 31, 2009 impacted the reported U.S. dollar
amounts of our sales, expenses and income.
    The results of operations whose functional currency is not the U.S.
dollar are translated into U.S. dollars using the average exchange rates in
the table above for the relevant period. Throughout this MD&A, reference is
made to the impact of translation of foreign operations on reported U.S.
dollar amounts where relevant.
    Our results can also be affected by the impact of movements in exchange
rates on foreign currency transactions (such as raw material purchases or
sales denominated in foreign currencies). However, as a result of hedging
programs employed by us, primarily in Canada, foreign currency transactions in
the current period have not been fully impacted by movements in exchange
rates. We record foreign currency transactions at the hedged rate where
applicable.
    Finally, holding gains and losses on foreign currency denominated
monetary items, which are recorded in selling, general and administrative
expenses, impact reported results.

    External Production Sales - North America

    External production sales in North America decreased 48% or $1.48 billion
to $1.57 billion for the first quarter of 2009 compared to $3.05 billion for
the first quarter of 2008. This decrease in production sales reflects a 50%
decrease in North American vehicle production volumes as discussed in the
"Highlights" section above partially offset by a 4% increase in our North
American average dollar content per vehicle. More importantly, during the
first quarter of 2009 our largest customers in North America continued to
reduce vehicle production volumes compared to the first quarter of 2008. While
North American vehicle production volumes declined 50% in the first quarter of
2009 compared to the first quarter of 2008, GM and Chrysler vehicle production
declined 57% and 54%, respectively.
    Our average dollar content per vehicle grew by 4% or $35 to $909 for the
first quarter of 2009 compared to $874 for the first quarter of 2008 primarily
as a result of:

    
    -   the launch of new programs during or subsequent to the first quarter
        of 2008, including:
        -  the Ford F-Series;
        -  the Dodge Ram;
        -  the BMW X6/Hybrid;
        -  the Ford Flex; and
        -  the Dodge Challenger;
    -   increased production and/or content on certain programs, including:
        - GM's full-sized pickups; and
        - the Ford Escape, Mercury Mariner and Mazda Tribute; and
    -   acquisitions completed subsequent to the first quarter of 2008,
        including
        -  a substantial portion of Plastech Engineered Products Inc.'s
           ("Plastech") exteriors business; and
        -  a stamping and sub-assembly facility in Birmingham, Alabama from
           Ogihara America Corporation ("Ogihara").

    These factors were partially offset by:

    -   the impact of lower production and/or content on certain programs,
        including:
        -  the Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX;
        -  the Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5;
        -  the Chevrolet Equinox, Pontiac Torrent and Suzuki XL7;
        -  GM's full-sized SUV's;
        -  the Ford Fusion, Mercury Milan and Lincoln MKZ;
        -  the Chevrolet Impala; and
        -  the Ford Explorer and Mercury Mountaineer;
    -   a decrease in reported U.S. dollar sales due to the weakening of the
        Canadian dollar against the U.S. dollar;
    -   programs that ended production during or subsequent to the first
        quarter of 2008, including:
        -  the Chevrolet Trailblazer and GMC Envoy; and
        -  the Dodge Durango and Chrysler Aspen; and
    -   customer price concessions subsequent to the first quarter of 2008.
    

    External Production Sales - Europe

    External production sales in Europe decreased 42% or $833 million to
$1.15 billion for the first quarter of 2009 compared to $1.99 billion for the
first quarter of 2008. This decrease in production sales reflects a 40%
decrease in European vehicle production volumes as discussed in the
"Highlights" section above combined with a 4% decrease in our European average
dollar content per vehicle.
    Our average dollar content per vehicle declined by 4% or $19 to $454 for
the first quarter of 2009 compared to $473 for the first quarter of 2008,
primarily as a result of:

    
    -   a decrease in reported U.S. dollar sales due to the weakening of the
        euro and British pound, each against the U.S. dollar;
    -   the impact of lower production and/or content on certain programs,
        including:
        -  the BMW X3;
        -  the Ford Transit; and
        -  the Mercedes-Benz C-Class;
    -   the sale of certain facilities during or subsequent to the first
        quarter of 2008; and
    -   customer price concessions subsequent to the first quarter of 2008.

    These factors were partially offset by:

    -   the launch of new programs during or subsequent to the first quarter
        of 2008, including:
        -  the Audi Q5;
        -  the Volkswagen Golf; and
        -  the Opel/Vauxhall Insignia; and
    -   increased production and/or content on certain programs, including
        -  the smart fortwo; and
        -  the Volkswagen Tiguan.

    External Production Sales - Rest of World

    External production sales in Rest of World decreased 11% or $13 million to
$108 million for the first quarter of 2009 compared to $121 million for the
first quarter of 2008. The decrease in production sales is primarily as a
result of:

    -   a decrease in reported U.S. dollar sales as a result of the weakening
        of the Brazilian real, Korean Won and South African Rand, each
        against the U.S. dollar;
    -   decreased production and/or content on certain programs, particularly
        in Korea.

    These factors were partially offset by:

    -   the launch of new programs during or subsequent to the first quarter
        of 2008 in China;
    -   increased production and/or content on certain programs in Brazil and
        South Africa; and
    -   an increase in reported U.S. dollar sales as a result of the
        strengthening of the Chinese Renminbi against the U.S. dollar.
    

    Complete Vehicle Assembly Sales

    The terms of our various vehicle assembly contracts differ with respect
to the ownership of components and supplies related to the assembly process
and the method of determining the selling price to the OEM customer. Under
certain contracts we are acting as principal and purchased components and
systems in assembled vehicles are included in our inventory and cost of goods
sold. These costs are reflected on a full-cost basis in the selling price of
the final assembled vehicle to the OEM customer. Other contracts provide that
third party components and systems are held on consignment by us, and the
selling price to the OEM customer reflects a value-added assembly fee only.
    Production levels of the various vehicles assembled by us have an impact
on the level of our sales and profitability. In addition, the relative
proportion of programs accounted for on a full-cost basis and programs
accounted for on a value-added basis, also impacts our level of sales and
operating margin percentage, but may not necessarily affect our overall level
of profitability. Assuming no change in total vehicles assembled, a relative
increase in the assembly of vehicles accounted for on a full-cost basis has
the effect of increasing the level of total sales, however, because purchased
components are included in cost of goods sold, profitability as a percentage
of total sales is reduced. Conversely, a relative increase in the assembly of
vehicles accounted for on a value-added basis has the effect of reducing the
level of total sales and increasing profitability as a percentage of total
sales.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    

    Complete vehicle assembly sales decreased 63% or $685 million to $401
million for the first quarter of 2009 compared to $1.1 billion for the first
quarter of 2008 while assembly volumes decreased 72% or 31,503 units. In
general, the decrease in complete vehicle assembly volumes is due to a
combination of general industry conditions as discussed previously, and the
natural decline in volumes as the models that we currently produce in our
assembly facilities approach their scheduled end of production. Several new
complete vehicle assembly programs have been awarded that are scheduled to
launch at various times between 2010 and 2013.
    In particular, the decrease in complete vehicle assembly sales is
primarily as a result of:

    
    -   a decrease in assembly volumes for the BMW X3, Saab 9(3) Convertible,
        Chrysler 300, Jeep Commander and Grand Cherokee; and
    -   a decrease in reported U.S. dollar sales due to the weakening of the
        euro against the U.S. dollar.
    

    These factors were partially offset by higher assembly volumes for the
Mercedes-Benz G-Class.

    Tooling, Engineering and Other Sales

    Tooling, engineering and other sales decreased 10% or $39 million to $342
million for the first quarter of 2009 compared to $381 million for the first
quarter of 2008.
    In the first quarter of 2009 the major programs for which we recorded
tooling, engineering and other sales were:

    
    -   the Chevrolet Silverado;
    -   the MINI Crossman;
    -   the Cadillac SRX and Saab 9-4X;
    -   the Chevrolet Equinox and Suzuki XL7;
    -   the Porsche Panamera;
    -   the BMW X3;
    -   the Ford Taurus;
    -   the Hummer H3; and
    -   the Cadillac DTS and Cadillac CTS.

    In the first quarter of 2008 the major programs for which we recorded
tooling, engineering and other sales were:

    -   the BMW Z4, X3 and 1-Series;
    -   GM's full-size pickups;
    -   the Peugeot A58;
    -   the Landrover Freelander;
    -   the Audi A5;
    -   the Cadillac SRX and Saab 9-4X;
    -   the Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country;
    -   the Ford F-Series; and
    -   the MINI Cooper.
    

    In addition, tooling, engineering and other sales decreased as a result
of the weakening of the euro and Canadian dollar, each against the U.S.
dollar.

    Gross Margin

    Gross margin decreased $594 million to $244 million for the first quarter
of 2009 compared to $838 million for the first quarter of 2008 and gross
margin as a percentage of total sales decreased to 6.8% for the first quarter
of 2009 compared to 12.7% for the first quarter of 2008. The 5.9% decrease in
gross margin as a percentage of total sales was substantially as a result of
lower gross margin earned due to an unprecedented decline in vehicle
production volumes. In addition, gross margin as a percentage of total sales
was negatively impacted by;

    
    -   incremental costs associated with restructuring and downsizing
        activities, primarily in North America;
    -   additional supplier insolvency costs;
    -   amortization of deferred wage buydown assets at a powertrain systems
        facility in the United States; and
    -   customer price concessions subsequent to the first quarter of 2008.

    These factors were partially offset by:

    -   a decrease in complete vehicle assembly sales which have a lower
        gross margin than our consolidated average;
    -   productivity and efficiency improvements at certain facilities;
    -   lower employee profit sharing;
    -   the decrease in tooling sales that earn low or no margins; and
    -   the benefit of restructuring and downsizing activities that were
        undertaken during or subsequent to the first quarter of 2008.
    

    Depreciation and Amortization

    Depreciation and amortization costs decreased 23% or $50 million to $169
million for the first quarter of 2009 compared to $219 million for the first
quarter of 2008. The decrease in depreciation and amortization was primarily
as a result of:

    
    -   the write-down of certain assets subsequent to the first quarter of
        2008, in particular at a powertrain facility in the United States and
        certain interiors and exteriors facilities in North America;
    -   a decrease in reported U.S. dollar depreciation and amortization due
        to the weakening of the Canadian dollar and euro, each against the
        U.S. dollar; and
    -   the sale or disposition of certain facilities subsequent to the first
        quarter of 2008.
    

    Selling, General and Administrative ("SG&A")

    SG&A expense as a percentage of sales was 8.4% for the first quarter of
2009 compared to 5.4% for the first quarter of 2008. This increase was
substantially due to the significant decrease in sales as a result of
significantly lower vehicle production volumes. SG&A expense decreased 16% or
$57 million to $302 million for the first quarter of 2009 compared to $359
million for the first quarter of 2008. The decrease in SG&A expense was
primarily as a result of:

    
    -   lower incentive compensation;
    -   reduced spending at certain facilities as a result of restructuring
        activities and downsizing that were initiated subsequent to the first
        quarter of 2008;
    -   a decrease in reported U.S. dollar SG&A expense due to the weakening
        of the Canadian dollar and euro, each against the U.S. dollar;
    -   management cost saving initiatives, including lower travel costs and
        consulting fees;
    -   a $17 million write-down of our investment in asset-backed commercial
        paper ("ABCP") during the first quarter of 2008; and
    -   the sale or disposition of certain facilities during or subsequent to
        the first quarter of 2008.

    These factors were partially offset by:

    -   $9 million reduction of capital taxes in Canada recorded during the
        first quarter of 2008; and
    -   higher restructuring and downsizing costs.


    Earnings (loss) before Interest and Taxes ("EBIT")(1)

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    (1) EBIT is defined as income (loss) from operations before income taxes
        presented on our unaudited interim consolidated financial statements
        before net interest expense (income).
    

    North America

    EBIT in North America decreased $236 million to a loss of $89 million for
the first quarter of 2009 compared to earnings of $147 million for the first
quarter of 2008. The decrease in EBIT was substantially due to decreased
margins earned on reduced sales as a result of significantly lower vehicle
production volumes, in particular on many high content programs. In addition,
the remaining decrease in earnings is primarily as a result of:

    
    -   incremental costs associated with restructuring and downsizing
        activities;
    -   additional supplier insolvency costs;
    -   amortization of deferred wage buydown assets at a powertrain systems
        facility in the United States;
    -   electric vehicle development costs; and
    -   customer price concessions subsequent to the first quarter of 2008.

    These factors were partially offset by:

    -   lower affiliation fees paid to corporate;
    -   lower incentive compensation;
    -   the reduction of employee profit sharing to $nil in the first quarter
        of 2009;
    -   the benefit of restructuring and downsizing activities that were
        undertaken during or subsequent to the first quarter of 2008; and
    -   incremental margin earned related to the acquisitions from Ogihara
        and Plastech.
    

    Europe

    EBIT in Europe decreased $238 million to a loss of $119 million for the
first quarter of 2009 compared to earnings of $119 million for the first
quarter of 2008. The decrease in EBIT was substantially due to decreased
margins earned on reduced sales as a result of significantly lower production
volumes, in particular on many high content programs. In addition, the
remaining decrease in earnings is primarily as a result of:

    
    -   cost incurred at new facilities in Russia as we continue to pursue
        opportunities in this market;
    -   costs incurred in preparation for upcoming launches or for programs
        that have not fully ramped up production;
    -   incremental costs associated with downsizing activities; and
    -   customer price concessions subsequent to the first quarter of 2008.

    These factors were partially offset by:

    -   the reduction of employee profit sharing to $nil in the first quarter
        of 2009;
    -   lower affiliation fees paid to corporate; and
    -   lower incentive compensation.
    

    Rest of World

    Rest of World EBIT decreased $8 million to a loss of $1 million for the
first quarter of 2009 compared to earnings of $7 million for the first quarter
of 2008 primarily as a result of:

    
    -   lower sales;
    -   operational inefficiencies at certain facilities; and
    -   cost incurred at new facilities, primarily in India.

    Corporate and Other

    Corporate and Other EBIT declined $12 million to a loss of $18 million for
the first quarter of 2009 compared to a loss of $6 million for the first
quarter of 2008 primarily as a result of:

    -   a decrease in affiliation fees earned from our divisions; and
    -   a decrease in equity income earned.

    These factors were partially offset by:

    -   a $17 million write-down of our investment in ABCP during the first
        quarter of 2008;
    -   decreased executive compensation; and
    -   lower charitable and social contributions.

    Interest Expense (Income), net

    During the first quarter of 2009, we recorded net interest expense of $3
million, compared to $19 million of net interest income for the first quarter
of 2008. The $22 million decrease in net interest income is as a result of:

    -   a decrease in interest income earned on lower cash and cash
        equivalent balances; and
    -   a decrease in interest income earned due to lower interest rates.
    

    These factors were partially offset by a reduction in interest expense on
long-term debt due to the repayments of our senior unsecured notes related to
the acquisition of New Venture Gear ("NVG").

    Operating Income (Loss)

    Operating income decreased $516 million to a loss of $230 million for the
first quarter of 2009 compared to earnings of $286 million for the first
quarter of 2008. The decrease in operating income is the result of the
decrease in EBIT and the decrease in net interest income earned, both as
discussed above.

    Income Taxes

    Our effective income tax rate on operating income (excluding equity
income) decreased to 13.0% for the first quarter of 2009 compared to 28.3% for
the first quarter of 2008. The decrease in the effective income tax rate is
primarily as a result of an increase in losses not benefited, primarily at our
facilities in the United States and Germany.

    Net Income (Loss)

    Net income decreased $407 million to a net loss of $200 million for the
first quarter of 2009 compared to net income of $207 million for the first
quarter of 2008. This decrease in net income is the result of the decrease in
operating income partially offset by lower income taxes, both as discussed
above.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    

    Diluted earnings per share decreased $3.57 to a loss of $1.79 for the
first quarter of 2009 compared to earnings of $1.78 for the first quarter of
2008. The decrease in diluted earnings per share is the result of a decrease
in net income combined with a decrease in the weighted average number of
diluted shares outstanding during the quarter.
    The decrease in the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding
was primarily due to the repurchase and cancellation of Class A Subordinate
Voting Shares subsequent to the first quarter of 2008 under the terms of our
ongoing Normal Course Issuer Bid and to a reduction in the number of diluted
shares associated with debentures and stock options since such shares were
anti-dilutive in the first quarter of 2009.

The decrease in cash flow from operations was due to a $407 million decrease in net income, as discussed above, and a $26 million decrease in items not involving current cash flows. Items not involving current cash flows are comprised of the following: For the three months ended March 31, -------------------- 2009 2008 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Depreciation and amortization $ 169 $ 219 Amortization of other assets included in cost of goods sold 20 17 Other non-cash charges 12 29 Amortization of employee wage buydown 6 - Future income taxes and non-cash portion of current taxes 2 (23) Equity income - (7) ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Items not involving current cash flows $ 209 $ 235 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------- The $17 million change in other non-cash charges is primarily the result of the $17 million impairment recorded in the first quarter of 2008 related to our investments in ABCP. Cash invested in non-cash operating assets and liabilities amounted to $52 million for the first quarter of 2009 compared to $218 million for the first quarter of 2008. The change in non-cash operating assets and liabilities is comprised of the following sources (and uses) of cash: For the three months ended March 31, -------------------- 2009 2008 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Accounts receivable $ 234 $ (413) Inventories 36 (50) Income taxes receivable (63) (129) Prepaid expenses and other (2) (1) Accounts payable (273) 266 Accrued salaries and wages 29 77 Other accrued liabilities (7) 40 Deferred revenue (6) (8) ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Changes in non-cash operating assets and liabilities $ (52) $ (218) ------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------- The decrease in accounts receivable, inventory and accounts payable in the first quarter of 2009 was primarily due to the reduction in production activities related to the general downturn in the automotive sector. The increase in income taxes receivable was primarily due to losses that can be carried back to prior years in Canada and higher instalments in Mexico.

While investments were made to refurbish or replace assets consumed in the normal course of business and for productivity improvements, a large portion of the investment in the first quarter of 2009 was for manufacturing equipment for programs that will be launching subsequent to the first quarter of 2009. In the first quarter of 2009, we invested $22 million in other assets related primarily to fully reimbursable planning and engineering costs at our complete vehicle engineering and assembly operations and our roof systems operations for programs that will be launching subsequent to the first quarter of 2009. Purchase of subsidiaries During the first quarter of 2008, we acquired two small electronics facilities for cash consideration of $8 million. Proceeds from disposition Proceeds from disposal in the first quarter of 2009 and 2008 were $4 million and $6 million, respectively, which represent normal course fixed and other asset disposals. Financing For the three months ended March 31, -------------------- 2009 2008 Change ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Decrease in bank indebtedness $ (762) $ (9) Repayments of debt (5) (67) Issues of debt 1 2 Repurchase of Class A Subordinate Voting Shares - (113) Cash dividends paid (21) (41) ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Cash used for financing activities $ (787) $ (228) $ (559) ------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------- In December 2008, in response to the uncertainty related to the financial viability of some of our key customers in North America, we drew down on our term and operating lines of credit. In February and March 2009, as the situation facing some of our key customers became clearer, we repaid $767 million of the outstanding lines of credit. The repayments of debt in the first quarter of 2008 include the repayment of the fourth series of senior unsecured notes issued in connection with the NVG acquisition. The final series of senior unsecured notes was repaid in the fourth quarter of 2008. During the first quarter of 2008, we purchased 1.6 million Class A Subordinate Voting Shares for an aggregate purchase price of $113 million under a normal course issuer bid. Cash dividends paid per Class A Subordinate Voting or Class B Share were $0.18 for the first quarter of 2009 compared to $0.36 for the first quarter of 2008. Financing Resources As at As at March December 31, 2009 31, 2008 Change ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Liabilities Bank indebtedness $ 124 $ 909 Long-term debt due within one year 232 157 Long-term debt 54 143 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- 410 1,209 Shareholders' equity 7,047 7,363 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total capitalization $ 7,457 $ 8,572 $ (1,115) ------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total capitalization decreased by $1.1 billion to $7.5 billion at March 31, 2009 compared to $8.6 billion at December 31, 2008. The decrease in capitalization was a result of an $0.8 billion decrease in liabilities and a $0.3 billion decrease in shareholders' equity. The decrease in liabilities is primarily as a result of the repayment of the outstanding lines of credit in February and March 2009 as discussed in the "Financing" section above. The decrease in shareholders' equity was primarily as a result of: - net loss incurred during the first quarter of 2009 (as discussed above), partially offset by the reclassification of net losses on cash flow hedges from accumulated other comprehensive income to net loss; - a $135 million decrease in accumulated net realized and unrealized gains on translation of net investment in foreign operations, primarily as a result of the weakening of the Canadian dollar and euro, each against the U.S. dollar between December 31, 2008 and March 31, 2009; and - dividends paid during the first quarter of 2009. Cash Resources During the first quarter of 2009, our cash resources decreased by $1.0 billion to $1.7 billion primarily as a result of the repayment of $0.8 billion on our outstanding lines of credit in February and March 2009 as discussed above. In addition to our cash resources, our term and operating lines of credit remained unchanged from December 2008, totalling $2.0 billion. The unused and available portion of our lines of credit increased $0.8 billion to $1.8 billion during the first quarter of 2009 due to the repayment on our operating lines. Maximum Number of Shares Issuable The following table presents the maximum number of shares that would be outstanding if all of the outstanding options and Subordinated Debentures issued and outstanding at May 4, 2009 were exercised or converted: Class A Subordinate Voting and Class B Shares 112,613,071 Subordinated Debentures (i) 1,096,589 Stock options (ii) 3,820,060 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- 117,529,720 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------- (i) The above amounts include shares issuable if the holders of the 6.5% Convertible Subordinated Debentures exercise their conversion option but exclude Class A Subordinate Voting Shares issuable, only at our option, to settle interest and principal related to the 6.5% Convertible Subordinated Debentures on redemption or maturity. The number of Class A Subordinate Voting Shares issuable at our option is dependent on the trading price of Class A Subordinate Voting Shares at the time we elect to settle the 6.5% Convertible Subordinated Debenture interest and principal with shares. The above amounts also exclude Class A Subordinate Voting Shares issuable, only at our option, to settle the 7.08% Subordinated Debentures on redemption or maturity. The number of shares issuable is dependent on the trading price of Class A Subordinate Voting Shares at redemption or maturity of the 7.08% Subordinated Debentures. (ii) Options to purchase Class A Subordinate Voting Shares are exercisable by the holder in accordance with the vesting provisions and upon payment of the exercise price as may be determined from time to time pursuant to our stock option plans. Contractual Obligations and Off-Balance Sheet Financing There have been no material changes with respect to the contractual obligations requiring annual payments during the first quarter of 2009 that are outside the ordinary course of our business. Refer to our MD&A included in our 2008 Annual Report. Long-term receivables in other assets are reflected net of outstanding borrowings from a finance subsidiary of Saab for $13 million since we have the legal right of set-off of our long-term receivable from Saab against such borrowings and we intend to settle the related amounts simultaneously. RELATED PARTIES ------------------------------------------------------------------------- As at March 5, 2009, we were owed approximately Cdn$1.9 million from MEC (the "MEC Receivable") in respect of head office rent and other shared services. On March 5, 2009, MEC and certain of its subsidiaries filed voluntary petitions for bankruptcy protection under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code and obtained recognition of the Chapter 11 proceedings from the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. The MEC Receivable is an unsecured obligation of MEC and we have recorded a reserve for doubtful accounts against the entire amount of this receivable. During the first quarter of 2009, we entered into an agreement to purchase approximately 100 acres of real estate located in Austria from MEC for $6.0 million ((euro)4.6 million). The transaction was reviewed by the Corporate Governance and Compensation Committee and approved by the independent members of Magna's Board of Directors following the unanimous recommendation of the Corporate Governance and Compensation Committee. The transaction closed on April 28, 2009. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES ------------------------------------------------------------------------- From time to time, we may be contingently liable for litigation and other claims. Refer to note 24 of our 2008 audited consolidated financial statements, which describes these claims. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES ------------------------------------------------------------------------- There have been no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting that occurred during the three months ended March 31, 2009 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting. FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS ------------------------------------------------------------------------- The previous discussion may contain statements that, to the extent that they are not recitations of historical fact, constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of applicable securities legislation. Forward-looking statements may include financial and other projections, as well as statements regarding our future plans, objectives or economic performance, or the assumptions underlying any of the foregoing. We use words such as "may", "would", "could", "will", "likely", "expect", "anticipate", "believe", "intend", "plan", "forecast", "project", "estimate" and similar expressions to identify forward-looking statements. Any such forward-looking statements are based on assumptions and analyses made by us in light of our experience and our perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments, as well as other factors we believe are appropriate in the circumstances. However, whether actual results and developments will conform with our expectations and predictions is subject to a number of risks, assumptions and uncertainties, including, without limitation: the potential for an extended global recession, including its impact on our liquidity; declining production volumes and sales levels; the impact of government financial intervention in the automotive industry; restructuring of the global automotive industry, including the bankruptcy of Chrysler and the risk of the bankruptcy of other customers; the financial distress of some of our suppliers and the risk of their insolvency, bankruptcy or financial restructuring; restructuring and/or downsizing costs related to the rationalization of some of our operations; impairment charges; shifts in technology; our ability to successfully grow our sales to non-traditional customers; a reduction in the production volumes of certain vehicles, such as certain light trucks; our dependence on outsourcing by our customers; risks of conducting business in foreign countries, including Russia, India and China; our ability to quickly shift our manufacturing footprint to take advantage of lower cost manufacturing opportunities; the termination or non-renewal by our customers of any material contracts; disruptions in the capital and credit markets; fluctuations in relative currency values; our ability to successfully identify, complete and integrate acquisitions; our ability to offset price concessions demanded by our customers; the continued exertion of pricing pressures by our customers; warranty and recall costs; product liability claims in excess of our insurance coverage; changes in our mix of earnings between jurisdictions with lower tax rates and those with higher tax rates, as well as our ability to fully benefit tax losses; other potential tax exposures; legal claims against us; work stoppages and labour relations disputes; changes in laws and governmental regulations; costs associated with compliance with environmental laws and regulations; potential conflicts of interest involving our indirect controlling shareholder, the Stronach Trust; and other factors set out in our Annual Information Form filed with securities commissions in Canada and our annual report on Form 40-F filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, and subsequent filings. In evaluating forward-looking statements, readers should specifically consider the various factors which could cause actual events or results to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements. Unless otherwise required by applicable securities laws, we do not intend, nor do we undertake any obligation, to update or revise any forward-looking statements to reflect subsequent information, events, results or circumstances or otherwise.

NOTES TO INTERIM CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited) (All amounts in U.S. dollars and all tabular amounts in millions unless otherwise noted) ------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION The unaudited interim consolidated financial statements of Magna International Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively "Magna" or the "Company") have been prepared in United States dollars following Canadian generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") with respect to the preparation of interim financial information. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and footnotes required in the preparation of annual financial statements and therefore should be read in conjunction with the December 31, 2008 audited consolidated financial statements and notes included in the Company's 2008 Annual Report. These interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared using the same accounting policies as the December 31, 2008 annual consolidated financial statements, except the Company restrospectively adopted the new Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants Handbook Section 3064, "Goodwill and Intangible Assets", with no restatement of prior periods. The adoption of these recommendations had no material impact on the interim consolidated financial statements. In the opinion of management, the unaudited interim consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, which consist only of normal and recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly the financial position at March 31, 2009 and the results of operations and cash flows for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2009 and 2008. 2.

The number of Class A Subordinate Voting Shares issuable at the Company's option is dependent on the trading price of Class A Subordinate Voting Shares at the time the Company elects to settle the 6.5% Convertible Subordinated Debenture interest and principal with shares. All or part of the 6.5% Convertible Subordinate Debentures are currently redeemable at the Company's option. The above amounts also exclude Class A Subordinate Voting Shares issuable, only at the Company's option, to settle the 7.08% Subordinated Debentures on redemption or maturity. The number of shares issuable is dependent on the trading price of Class A Subordinate Voting Shares at redemption or maturity of the 7.08% Subordinated Debentures. (ii) Options to purchase Class A Subordinate Voting Shares are exercisable by the holder in accordance with the vesting provisions and upon payment of the exercise price as may be determined from time to time pursuant to the Company's stock option plans. 8. CONTRIBUTED SURPLUS Contributed surplus consists of accumulated stock option compensation expense less the fair value of options at the grant date that have been exercised and credited to Class A Subordinate Voting Shares, the accumulated restricted stock compensation expense and the value of the holders' conversion option on the 6.5% Convertible Subordinated Debentures.

CAPITAL DISCLOSURES The Company manages capital in order to ensure it has adequate borrowing capacity and financial structure to allow financial flexibility and to provide an adequate return to shareholders. In order to maintain or adjust the capital structure, the Company may adjust the amount of dividends paid to shareholders, issue new shares, purchase shares for cancellation or increase or decrease the amount of debt outstanding. The Company monitors capital using the ratio of debt to total capitalization. Debt includes bank indebtedness and long-term debt as shown in the balance sheet. Total capitalization includes debt and all components of shareholders' equity. The Company's capitalization and debt to total capitalization is as follows: March December 31, 2009 31, 2008 --------------------------------------------------------------------- Liabilities Bank indebtedness $ 124 $ 909 Long-term debt due within one year 232 157 Long-term debt 54 143 --------------------------------------------------------------------- 410 1,209 Shareholders' equity 7,047 7,363 --------------------------------------------------------------------- Total capitalization $ 7,457 $ 8,572 --------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------- Debt to total capitalization 5.5% 14.1% --------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------- During the first quarter of 2009, the Company repaid $768 million of borrowings under the Company's five-year revolving term facility. 11. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS (a) The Company's financial assets and financial liabilities consist of the following: March December 31, 2009 31, 2008 --------------------------------------------------------------------- Held for trading Cash and cash equivalents $ 1,748 $ 2,757 Investment in ABCP 64 - --------------------------------------------------------------------- $ 1,812 $ 2,757 --------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------- Held to maturity investments Investment in ABCP $ - $ 64 Severance investments 9 9 --------------------------------------------------------------------- $ 9 $ 73 --------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------- Loans and Receivables Accounts receivable $ 2,546 $ 2,821 Long-term receivables included in other assets 66 67 Income taxes receivable 74 11 --------------------------------------------------------------------- $ 2,686 $ 2,899 --------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------- Other financial liabilities Bank indebtedness $ 124 $ 909 Long-term debt (including portion due within one year) 286 300 Accounts payable 2,469 2,744 Accrued salaries and wages 470 448 Other accrued liabilities 729 835 --------------------------------------------------------------------- $ 4,078 $ 5,236 --------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------- (b) Fair value The Company determined the estimated fair values of its financial instruments based on valuation methodologies it believes are appropriate; however, considerable judgment is required to develop these estimates. Accordingly, these estimated fair values are not necessarily indicative of the amounts the Company could realize in a current market exchange. The estimated fair value amounts can be materially affected by the use of different assumptions or methodologies. The methods and assumptions used to estimate the fair value of financial instruments are described below: Cash and cash equivalents, bank indebtedness, accounts payable, accrued salaries and wages, other accrued liabilities and income taxes receivable. Due to the short period to maturity of the instruments, the carrying values as presented in the consolidated balance sheets are reasonable estimates of fair values. Investments At March 31, 2009, the Company held Canadian third party asset-backed commercial paper ("ABCP") with a face value of Cdn$134 million. The carrying value and estimated fair value of this investment was Cdn$79 million (December 31, 2008 - Cdn$79 million). As fair value information is not readily determinable for the Company's investment in ABCP, the fair value was based on a valuation technique estimating the fair value from the perspective of a market participant. Term debt The Company's term debt includes $232 million due within one year. Due to the short period to maturity of this debt, the carrying value as presented in the consolidated balance sheet is a reasonable estimate of its fair value. (c) Credit risk The Company's financial assets that are exposed to credit risk consist primarily of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, held to maturity investments, and foreign exchange forward contracts with positive fair values. The Company's held for trading investments include an investment in ABCP. Given the continuing uncertainties regarding the value of the underlying assets, the amount and timing over cash flows and the risk of collateral calls in the event that spreads widened considerably, the Company could be exposed to further losses on its investment. Cash and cash equivalents, which consists of short-term investments, are only invested in governments, bank term deposits and bank commercial paper with an investment grade credit rating. Credit risk is further reduced by limiting the amount which is invested in certain governments or any major financial institution. The Company is also exposed to credit risk from the potential default by any of its counterparties on its foreign exchange forward contracts. The Company mitigates this credit risk by dealing with counterparties who are major financial institutions that the Company anticipates will satisfy their obligations under the contracts. In the normal course of business, the Company is exposed to credit risk from its customers, substantially all of which are in the automotive industry and are subject to credit risks associated with the automotive industry. Sales to the Company's three largest customers, General Motors, Ford and Chrysler represented 44% of the Company's total sales. On April 30, 2009, Chrysler (including its U.S. subsidiaries) filed for bankruptcy protection under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. The Company's sales to Chrysler for the three months ended March 31, 2009 were $388 million or 10.9% of consolidated sales. As at March 31, 2009, accounts receivable from Chrysler were $282 million, a portion of which is expected to be covered by production receivables support programs sponsored by the Canadian and United States governments. Although Chrysler filed motions to continue operating in the ordinary course, including by continuing to pay suppliers under normal terms and conditions, Chrysler also announced that it would cease production while it is in bankruptcy protection. The Company is currently unable to assess the extent to which the Chrysler filing will impact the Company's financial position and operations. The inability of Chrysler to successfully restructure represents a material credit risk to the Company. The Company's sales to General Motors for the three months ended March 31, 2009 were $679 million or 19.0% of consolidated sales. As at March 31, 2009, accounts receivable from General Motors were $346 million. General Motors has received billions of dollars in government loans from the U.S. government and has been given a mandate to restructure and present an acceptable plan for future viability by the end of May 2009. Depending on the government's assessment of this plan, General Motors may be forced to seek some measure of bankruptcy protection. The inability of General Motors to complete a successful restructuring and plan for future viability represents a material credit risk to the Company. For the three months ended March 31, 2009, sales to the Company's six largest customers (including the Detroit 3) represented 82% of our total sales, and substantially all of our sales are to customers in which the Company has ongoing contractual relationships. (d) Currency risk The Company is exposed to fluctuations in foreign exchange rates when manufacturing facilities have committed to the delivery of products for which the selling price has been quoted in currencies other than the facilities' functional currency, or when materials and equipment are purchased in currencies other than the facilities' functional currency. In an effort to manage this net foreign exchange exposure, the Company employs hedging programs, primarily through the use of foreign exchange forward contracts. As at March 31, 2009, the net foreign exchange exposure was not material. (e) Interest rate risk The Company is not exposed to significant interest rate risk due to the short-term maturity of its monetary current assets and current liabilities. In particular, the amount of interest income earned on our cash and cash equivalents is impacted more by the investment decisions made and the demands to have available cash on hand, than by movements in the interest rates over a given period. In addition, the Company is not exposed to interest rate risk on its long-term debt instruments as the interest rates on these instruments are fixed. 12.
