    >>

We posted sales of $6.6 billion for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2010, an increase of 22% from the fourth quarter of 2009. This higher sales level was a result of increases in our North American, European and Rest of World production sales, complete vehicle assembly sales and tooling, engineering and other sales.

During the fourth quarter of 2010, North American and European average dollar content per vehicle increased by 17% and 6%, respectively, each compared to the fourth quarter of 2009. In addition, North American and European vehicle production both increased 7%, compared to the fourth quarter of 2009.

Complete vehicle assembly sales increased 19% to $608 million for the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to $512 million for the fourth quarter of 2009, while complete vehicle assembly volumes increased 59% to approximately 25,000 units.

During the fourth quarter of 2010, operating income was $222 million, net income was $216 million and diluted earnings per share were $0.88, increases of $347 million, $355 million and $1.50, respectively, each compared to the fourth quarter of 2009.

During the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2010, we generated cash from operations of $415 million before changes in non-cash operating assets and liabilities, and generated $499 million from non-cash operating assets and liabilities. Total investment activities for the fourth quarter of 2010 were $445 million, including $305 million in fixed asset additions, $98 million to purchase subsidiaries, and $42 million in investments and other assets.

    <<
    YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2010
    ---------------------------
    >>

We posted sales of $24.1 billion for the year ended December 31, 2010, an increase of 39% from the year ended December 31, 2009. This higher sales level was a result of increases in our North American, European and Rest of World production sales, complete vehicle assembly sales and tooling, engineering and other sales.

During the year ended December 31, 2010, vehicle production increased 39% to 12.0 million units in North America and 12% to 13.3 million units in Europe, each compared to 2009.

Also during 2010, our North American and European average dollar content per vehicle increased 13% and 8% respectively, each compared to 2009.

Complete vehicle assembly sales increased 23% to $2.2 billion for the year ended December 31, 2010 compared to $1.8 billion for the year ended December 31, 2009, while complete vehicle assembly volumes increased 52% to approximately 86,000 units.

During the year ended December 31, 2010, operating income was $1.2 billion, net income was $973 million and diluted earnings per share were $4.18, increases of $1.7 billion, $1.5 billion and $6.39, respectively, each compared to 2009.

During the year ended December 31, 2010, we generated cash from operations before changes in non-cash operating assets and liabilities of $1.7 billion, and generated $177 million from non-cash operating assets and liabilities. Total investment activities for 2010 were $1.0 billion, including $784 million in fixed asset additions, $141 million in investments and other assets and $106 million to purchase subsidiaries.

Don Walker, Magna's Chief Executive Officer commented: "In 2010, Magna benefitted from a strong recovery in vehicle production, both in our primary markets of North America and Western Europe as well as globally. We are positioned to capitalize on continued growth in global vehicle production in 2011 and beyond, as we further expand our manufacturing footprint in a number of growing regions of the world."

A more detailed discussion of our consolidated financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2010 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.

    <<
    INCREASED QUARTERLY CASH DIVIDEND
    ---------------------------------
    >>

Our Board of Directors also declared a quarterly dividend with respect to our outstanding Common Shares for the quarter ended December 31, 2010. In light of Magna's performance, the Board decided to increase the dividend by 39% to U.S. $0.25 per share. This dividend is payable on March 23, 2011 to shareholders of record on March 11, 2011.

"Our strong earnings and cash flow generation over the past year has enabled our Board to increase our dividend for the third time since we re-established our quarterly dividend last May", stated Vince Galifi, Magna's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

    <<
    2011 OUTLOOK
    ------------
    >>

For the full year 2011, we expect consolidated total sales to be between $25.6 billion and $27.1 billion, and expect consolidated production sales to be between $21.7 billion and $22.7 billion, based on full year 2011 light vehicle production volumes of approximately 12.9 million units in North America and approximately 13.3 million units in Western Europe. We expect full year 2011 production sales to be between $12.7 billion and $13.2 billion in North America, between $7.8 billion and $8.1 billion in Europe and between $1.2 billion and $1.4 billion in Rest of World. We expect full year 2011 complete vehicle assembly sales to be between $2.4 billion and $2.7 billion. We expect our 2011 effective income tax rate to be approximately 20%.

In addition, we expect that our full year 2011 spending for fixed assets will be between $1.0 billion and $1.1 billion. This amount reflects continuing investment to support new and replacement business in our traditional markets as well as investment to expand in a number of high-growth markets. Finally, we expect our full year 2011 consolidated operating margin percentage, excluding unusual items, to be approximately 5%.

In this 2011 outlook, in addition to 2011 light vehicle production, we have assumed no material acquisitions or divestitures. In addition, we have assumed that foreign exchange rates for the most common currencies in which we conduct business relative to our U.S. dollar reporting currency will approximate current rates.

    HIGHLIGHTS
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    >>

Operations

2010 was a year of significant change for both the automotive industry and Magna. North American light vehicle production increased 39% in 2010, compared to the historically low level of production experienced in 2009. The key reason for this increase in North American light vehicle production was the improvement in North American auto sales.

In Western Europe, light vehicle production increased 12% in 2010, compared to 2009. The increased production in 2010 reflected relatively strong vehicle sales in certain European countries, as well as increased exports of European-built vehicles into other markets during 2010, particularly China.

Our 2010 total sales increased 39% over 2009, with North American, European and Rest of World production sales, as well as complete vehicle assembly sales, and tooling and other sales all posting increases over 2009. Rest of World production sales exceeded the $1 billion mark for the first time, increasing 53% in 2010 to $1.031 billion, compared to $676 million in 2009. Operating income for 2010 increased $1.7 billion to $1.2 billion, compared to an operating loss of $511 million for 2009. Diluted earnings per share for 2010 increased $6.39 to $4.18, compared to a diluted loss per share of $2.21 for 2009. Cash flow from operations for 2010 increased $1.3 billion to $1.87 billion, compared to $527 million for 2009.

Our 2010 financial results reflect, among other things:

    <<
    -   the improved level of light vehicle production in North America and
        Western Europe;
    -   the benefits of our efforts over the last few years to restructure,
        right-size and otherwise reduce costs across the organization; and
    -   the benefit of our efforts to improve underperforming operations
        around the world.

Plan of Arrangement

On August 31, 2010, following approval by our Class A Subordinate Voting and Class B Shareholders, we completed a court-approved plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement") in which our dual-class share structure was collapsed. In addition, the transaction: (i) set a termination date and declining fee schedule for the consulting, business development and business services contracts Magna has in place with our Chairman, Frank Stronach, and his affiliated entities; and (ii) established a partnership with the Stronach group to pursue opportunities in the vehicle electrification business.

    <<
    (a) Capital Transaction

        We purchased for cancellation all 1,453,658 outstanding Class B
        Shares (restated to reflect the stock split discussed below), which
        were held indirectly by the Stronach group, for $300 million in cash
        and 18.0 million newly issued Class A Subordinate Voting Shares
        (restated to reflect the stock split discussed below). The newly
        issued shares held indirectly by the Stronach group represented an
        equal equity ownership and voting interest of 7.4% as of August 31,
        2010.

        In addition, Magna's Articles were amended to remove the Class B
        Shares from the authorized capital and to make non-substantive
        consequential changes, including renaming the Class A Subordinate
        Voting Shares as Common Shares and eliminating provisions which no
        longer apply due to the elimination of the Class B Shares.

    (b) Vehicle Electrification Partnership

        The partnership, Magna E-Car Systems ("E-Car"), involves the
        engineering, development and integration of electric vehicles of any
        type, the development, testing and manufacturing of batteries and
        battery packs for hybrid and electric vehicles and all
        ancillary activities in connection with electric vehicle
        technologies. Our original investment in the partnership included the
        assets of our recently established E-Car Systems vehicle
        electrification and battery business unit, certain other vehicle
        electrification assets, and $145 million in cash. On August 31, 2010,
        the Stronach group invested $80 million in cash for a 27% equity
        interest in the partnership, reducing our equity interest to 73%. The
        partnership is controlled by the Stronach group.
    >>

Stock Split

On November 24, 2010, we completed a two-for-one stock split, which was implemented by way of a stock dividend. In connection with the stock split, all equity-based compensation plans or arrangements were adjusted to reflect the issuance of additional Common Shares.

Accordingly, all of our issued and outstanding Common Shares and our former Class A Subordinate Voting and Class B shares, including the shares issued in connection with the Arrangement, as well as incentive stock options, and stock appreciation rights ("SARs") have been restated for all periods presented to reflect the stock split. In addition, earnings (loss) per Common Share or Class B Share, cash dividends paid per Common Share or Class B Share, weighted average exercise price for stock options and the weighted average fair value of options granted or modified have been restated for all periods presented to reflect the stock split.

Dividends

Due to continuing strong operating and cash flow performance, on February 23, 2011 our Board declared a dividend of U.S. $0.25 per share in respect of the fourth quarter of 2010, representing an increase of 39% over the third quarter of 2010 dividend and the third consecutive dividend increase since the reintroduction of the dividend in the first quarter of 2010.

Normal Course Issuer Bid

On November 4, 2010, our Board of Directors approved a normal course issuer bid to purchase up to 8.0 million of our issued and outstanding Common Shares (adjusted to reflect the stock split), representing approximately 3.3% of our outstanding Common Shares. The primary purposes of the normal course issuer bid are purchases for cancellation to offset potential dilution resulting from the exercise of stock options and/or to fund our restricted stock unit program and our obligations to our deferred profit sharing plans. The normal course issuer bid will terminate in November 2011.

Governance

Since the elimination of our dual-class share structure effective August 31, 2010, we have implemented a number of significant corporate governance initiatives, including the:

    <<
    -   adoption of a majority voting policy;
    -   reconstitution of the Nominating Committee of our Board of Directors
        as a fully independent Committee; and
    -   initiation of a search for additional independent directors with the
        assistance of an internationally recognized firm.
    >>

Acquisitions

Consistent with our strategy to expand in new regions, in December 2010, we acquired seating companies in Brazil and Argentina. Combined 2010 sales in the two seating companies amounted to $260 million. Also during December 2010, we acquired Erhard & Sohne GmbH, a manufacturer of fuel tanks.

Going Forward

Following a strong rebound in 2010, we expect global light vehicle production to grow further in 2011, provided that overall economic conditions continue to improve. In North America, light vehicle production should experience strong growth in 2011, although production remains well off peak levels. In Western Europe, we expect light vehicle production to be approximately level with 2010.

Our strategy includes:

    <<
    -   continued expansion in high growth and developing markets;
    -   increased investment in innovation to remain at the forefront of the
        automotive industry;
    -   further diversification of sales by customer, by region and by
        vehicle segment; and
    -   continued support of our existing customers globally.
    >>

We expect this strategy to be implemented both through organic growth as well as targeted acquisitions.

    <<
    FINANCIAL RESULTS SUMMARY
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    >>

During 2010, we posted sales of $24.1 billion, an increase of 39% from 2009. This higher sales level was a result of increases in our North American, European and Rest of World production sales, complete vehicle assembly sales and tooling, engineering and other sales. Comparing 2010 to 2009:

    <<
    -   North American vehicle production increased by 39% and average dollar
        content per vehicle increased 13%;
    -   European vehicle production increased 12% and average dollar content
        per vehicle increased 8%;
    -   Complete vehicle assembly sales increased 23% to $2.2 billion, as
        complete vehicle assembly volumes increased 52%;
    -   Rest of World production sales increased 53% to $1.0 billion from
        $0.7 billion; and
    -   Tooling, engineering and other sales increased 26% to $2.0 billion
        from $1.6 billion.
    >>

During 2010, we earned operating income of $1.2 billion compared to an operating loss of $0.5 billion for 2009. Excluding the unusual items recorded in 2010 and 2009, as discussed in the "Unusual Items" section, the $1.6 billion increase in operating income was substantially due to increased margins earned on higher sales as a result of significantly higher vehicle production volumes. In addition, operating income was positively impacted by:

    <<
    -   lower restructuring and downsizing costs and the benefit of prior
        year restructuring and downsizing activities;
    -   a $32 million recovery, during 2010, of receivables that were fully
        provided for in 2009;
    -   favourable settlement of certain commercial items;
    -   the write-off of uncollectable pre-production costs incurred related
        to the cancellation of assembly programs in 2009;
    -   higher equity income;
    -   due diligence costs incurred in 2009 associated with our planned
        investment in Opel, which terminated during 2009;
    -   the $20 million benefit related to the recovery of previously
        expensed engineering and design costs;
    -   higher interest income;
    -   incremental margin earned on acquisitions completed during or
        subsequent to 2009, including Cadence Innovation s.r.o. ("Cadence");
    -   lower costs incurred related to launches at our Complete Vehicle
        Assembly operations; and
    -   productivity and efficiency improvements at certain facilities.
    >>

These factors were partially offset by:

    <<
    -   higher incentive compensation;
    -   higher costs related to launches at our components business;
    -   operational inefficiencies and other costs at certain facilities, in
        particular at certain exteriors and interiors systems facilities in
        Europe;
    -   employee profit sharing, as no profit sharing was recorded in 2009;
    -   increased commodity costs;
    -   a $20 million stock-based compensation charge as a result of
        modifying option agreements with three departing executives and a
        related $9 million contract termination payment;
    -   increased stock-based compensation;
    -   a $9 million favourable revaluation of our investment in asset-backed
        commercial paper ("ABCP") in 2009; and
    -   net customer price concessions subsequent to 2009.
    >>

During 2010, net income increased $1.5 billion to $1.0 billion compared to net loss of $0.5 billion for 2009. Excluding the unusual items recorded in 2010 and 2009, as discussed in the "Unusual Items" section, net income for 2010 increased $1.3 billion. The increase in net income was a result of the increase in operating income and minority interest recovery, partially offset by higher income taxes.

During 2010, our diluted earnings per share increased by $6.39 to $4.18 compared to loss per share of $2.21 for 2009. Excluding the unusual items recorded in 2010 and 2009, as discussed in the "Unusual Items" section, diluted earnings per share for 2010 increased by $5.66. The increase in diluted earnings per share is as a result of the increase in net income partially offset by an increase in the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding during 2010. The increase in the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding was primarily due to the net issue of shares during 2010 related primarily to the Arrangement and an increase in the number of diluted shares associated with stock options and restricted stock partially offset by the effect of the repurchase and cancellation of Common Shares pursuant to our normal course issuer bid.

    <<
    UNUSUAL ITEMS
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    >>

During the three months and year ended December 31, 2010 and 2009, we recorded certain unusual items as follows:

        (a) For the year ended December 31, 2010

           (i)   Long-lived Assets

                 In conjunction with our annual business planning cycle,
                 during the fourth quarter of 2010, we completed our annual
                 goodwill impairment and long-lived asset analysis and
                 recorded long-lived asset impairment charges of $23 million.

                 In North America, we recorded charges of $7 million related
                 to fixed assets at a die casting facility in Canada and in
                 Germany, we recorded long-lived asset impairment charges of
                 $16 million related to an interiors systems facility.

           (ii)  Restructuring Costs

                 During 2010, we recorded restructuring and rationalization
                 costs of $29 million in cost of goods sold and $3 million in
                 selling, general and administrative expense related to the
                 planned closure of a powertrain systems facility and two
                 body & chassis systems facilities in North America.

        (b) For the year ended December 31, 2009

           (i)   Goodwill

                 In conjunction with our annual business planning cycle,
                 during the fourth quarter of 2009 we determined that our Car
                 Top Systems ("CTS") North America reporting unit could
                 potentially be impaired, primarily as a result of: (i) a
                 dramatic reduction in the market for soft tops, hard tops
                 and modular retractable hard tops; and (ii) historical
                 losses that are projected to continue throughout our
                 business planning period. Based on the reporting unit's
                 discounted forecast cashflows, we recorded a $25 million
                 goodwill impairment charge.

                 In addition, during the second quarter of 2009, after
                 failing to reach a favourable labour agreement at a
                 powertrain systems facility in Syracuse, New York, we
                 decided to wind down these operations. Given the
                 significance of the facility's cashflows in relation to the
                 reporting unit, management determined that it was more
                 likely than not that goodwill at the Powertrain North
                 America reporting unit could potentially be impaired.
                 Therefore, we recorded a $75 million goodwill impairment
                 charge.

                 The goodwill impairment charges were calculated by
                 determining the implied fair value of goodwill in the same
                 manner as if we had acquired the Powertrain and CTS
                 reporting units as at June 30, 2009 and December 31, 2009,
                 respectively.

           (ii)  Long-lived Assets

                 During the fourth quarter of 2009 we recorded long-lived
                 asset impairment charges of $83 million.

                 In North America, we recorded charges of $13 million related
                 to fixed assets at a die casting facility in Canada and an
                 anticipated under recovery of capitalized tooling costs at a
                 stamping facility in the United States due to significantly
                 lower volumes on certain SUV programs.

                 In Europe, we recorded long-lived asset impairment charges
                 of $70 million related to our CTS and exterior systems
                 operations in Germany.

                 At our CTS operations, long-lived asset impairment charges
                 of $59 million were recorded related to fixed and intangible
                 assets. The impairment charge was calculated based on CTS'
                 discounted forecast cashflows and was necessary primarily as
                 a result of: (i) a dramatic reduction in the market for soft
                 tops, hard tops and modular retractable hard tops; and (ii)
                 historical losses that are projected to continue throughout
                 our business planning period.

                 At our interiors and exteriors operations, we recorded an
                 $11 million asset impairment charge related to specific
                 under-utilized assets in Germany.

           (iii) Restructuring Costs

                 During 2009, we recorded restructuring and rationalization
                 costs of $23 million in cost of goods sold and $3 million in
                 selling, general and administrative expense. During the
                 second quarter, we recorded restructuring costs of $6
                 million related to the planned closure of a powertrain
                 systems facility in Syracuse, New York and during the fourth
                 quarter we recorded severance and other termination benefits
                 related to the closure of powertrain and interior systems
                 facilities in Germany. Substantially all of the $26 million
                 will be paid subsequent to 2009.

                 In addition, during 2009, we incurred costs related to
                 downsizing various operations in our traditional markets.

    (2) Sale of Facilities

        During 2010, we sold our interest in an electronics systems joint
        venture in China and realized a $14 million gain.

        During 2009, we entered into an agreement to sell an engineering
        centre in Europe and, as a result, incurred a loss on disposition of
        the facility of $8 million.

    (3) Curtailment gain

        During the second quarter of 2009, we amended our Retiree Premium
        Reimbursement Plan in Canada and the United States, such that most
        employees retiring on or after August 1, 2009 would no longer
        participate in the plan. The amendment reduced service costs and
        retirement medical benefit expense in 2009 and future years. As a
        result of amending the plan, a curtailment gain of $26 million was
        recorded in cost of goods sold in the second quarter of 2009.


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

A number of general trends which have been impacting the automotive industry and our business in recent years are expected to continue, including the following:

    <<
    -   the exertion of pricing pressure by OEMs;
    -   government incentives and consumer demand for, and industry focus on,
        more fuel-efficient and environmentally-friendly vehicles with
        alternative-energy fuel systems and additional safety features;
    -   governmental regulation of fuel economy and emissions, vehicle
        recyclability and vehicle safety;
    -   the long-term growth of the automotive industry in China, India,
        Brazil, Russia and other developing markets, including accelerated
        migration of component and vehicle design, development, engineering
        and manufacturing to certain of these markets;
    -   the growth of the A to D vehicle segments (micro to mid-size cars),
        particularly in developing markets;
    -   the consolidation of vehicle platforms; and
    -   the growth of cooperative alliances and arrangements among competing
        automotive OEMs, including shared purchasing of components; joint
        engine, powertrain and/or platform development; engine, powertrain
        and platform sharing; and joint vehicle hybridization and
        electrification initiatives.
    >>

The following are some of the more significant risks that could affect our ability to achieve our desired results:

    <<
    -   The global automotive industry is cyclical and is sensitive to
        changes in economic and political conditions, including interest
        rates, energy prices and international conflicts. While the global
        automotive industry appears to be recovering from the severe economic
        downturn which began in the second half of 2008, the strength and
        speed of the recovery, as well as its consistency across geographic
        markets remains uncertain. This uncertainty creates planning risks
        for us. Additionally, as a result of restructuring actions taken by
        OEMs and suppliers during the recent downturn, automotive production
        levels are more closely aligned with actual automotive sales levels
        and, accordingly, may be more sensitive to overall economic
        conditions than in the years prior to 2008. A significant decline in
        production volumes from current levels could have a material adverse
        effect on our profitability. As a result of the restructuring actions
        taken by suppliers during the recent economic downturn, there is a
        risk that some suppliers may not have adequate capacity to timely
        accommodate increases in demand for their parts which result from a
        significant, rapid increase in production volumes. Such a failure by
        a supplier could lead to occasional components shortages or
        production disruptions, which could have an adverse effect on our
        operations and profitability.

    -   The short-term viability of several of our OEM customers appears to
        have improved as a result of restructuring actions in the past few
        years, as well as direct government financial intervention in the
        automotive industry in 2008 and 2009. However, there can be no
        assurance that these restructuring actions will be successful in
        ensuring their long-term viability, nor can there be any assurance
        that government financial assistance will be made available at levels
        necessary to prevent OEM failures in the future. The bankruptcy of
        any of our major customers could have a material adverse effect on
        our profitability and financial condition.

    -   We rely on a number of suppliers to supply us with a wide range of
        components required in connection with our business. While the
        automotive supply base appears to have stabilized following the
        economic downturn which commenced in the second half of 2008, the
        financial health of automotive suppliers was impacted by economic
        conditions, production volume cuts, intense pricing pressures and
        other factors. The insolvency or bankruptcy of a supplier could
        disrupt the supply of components to us or our customers, potentially
        causing the temporary shut-down of our or our customers' production
        lines. Any prolonged disruption in the supply of critical components
        to us or our customers, the inability to re-source or in-source
        production of a critical component from a financially distressed
        automotive components sub-supplier, or any temporary shut-down of one
        of our production lines or the production lines of one of our
        customers, could have a material adverse effect on our profitability.
        Additionally, the insolvency, bankruptcy or financial restructuring
        of any of our critical suppliers could result in us incurring
        unrecoverable costs related to the financial work-out of such
        suppliers and/or increased exposure for product liability, warranty
        or recall costs relating to the components supplied by such suppliers
        to the extent such supplier is not able to assume responsibility for
        such amounts, which could have an adverse effect on our
        profitability.

    -   The automotive parts supply industry is highly competitive. As a
        result of our diversified automotive business, we face a number of
        competitors possessing varying degrees of financial and operational
        strength in each of our product and service capabilities. Some of our
        competitors have a substantially greater market share than we have in
        certain product areas and are dominant in some of the markets in
        which we do business. In addition, restructuring actions taken by
        some of our competitors have provided them with improved financial
        and operational flexibility and could increase their competitive
        threat to our business. Failure to successfully compete with our
        existing competitors or with any new competitors could have an
        adverse effect on our operations and profitability.

    -   We are dependent on the outsourcing of components, modules and
        assemblies, as well as complete vehicles, by OEMs. The extent of OEM
        outsourcing is influenced by a number of factors, including: relative
        cost, quality and timeliness of production by suppliers as compared
        to OEMs; capacity utilization; OEMs' perceptions regarding the
        strategic importance of certain components/modules to them; labour
        relations among OEMs, their employees and unions; and other
        considerations. As a result of lower cost structures due to recent
        restructuring actions, some OEMs may in-source production which had
        previously been outsourced. Outsourcing of complete vehicle assembly
        is particularly dependent on the degree of unutilized capacity at the
        OEMs' own assembly facilities, in addition to the foregoing factors.
        A reduction in outsourcing by OEMs, or the loss of any material
        production or assembly programs coupled with the failure to secure
        alternative programs with sufficient volumes and margins, could have
        a material adverse effect on our profitability.

    -   We continue to invest in technology and innovation which we believe
        will be critical to our long-term growth. Our ability to anticipate
        changes in technology and to successfully develop and introduce new
        and enhanced products and/or manufacturing processes on a timely
        basis will be a significant factor in our ability to remain
        competitive. If there is a shift away from the use of technologies in
        which we are investing, our costs may not be fully recovered. We may
        be placed at a competitive disadvantage if other technologies in
        which our investment is not as great, or our expertise is not as
        developed, emerge as the industry-leading technologies. This could
        have a material adverse effect on our profitability and financial
        condition.

    -   As part of our strategy of continuously seeking to optimize our
        global manufacturing footprint, we may further rationalize some of
        our production facilities. In the course of such rationalization, we
        may incur further restructuring, downsizing and/or other significant
        non-recurring costs related to plant closings, relocations and
        employee severance costs. Restructuring costs may be greater in
        certain jurisdictions than others as a result of the size and scope
        of the restructuring, differences in laws, and other factors. Such
        costs could have an adverse effect on our short-term profitability.
        In addition, we are working to turn around financially
        underperforming divisions; however, there is no guarantee that we
        will be successful in doing so with respect to some or all such
        divisions.

    -   We recorded significant impairment charges related to goodwill, long-
        lived assets and future tax assets in recent years and may continue
        to do so in the future. The bankruptcy of a significant customer or
        the early termination, loss, renegotiation of the terms of, or delay
        in the implementation of, any significant production contract could
        be indicators of impairment. In addition, to the extent that forward-
        looking assumptions regarding: the impact of improvement plans on
        current operations; in-sourcing and other new business opportunities;
        program price and cost assumptions on current and future business;
        the timing of new program launches; and forecast production volumes;
        are not met, any resulting impairment loss could have a material
        adverse effect on our profitability.

    -   Although we supply parts to all of the leading OEMs, a significant
        majority of our sales are to six such customers. While we have
        diversified our customer base somewhat in recent years and continue
        to attempt to further diversify, particularly to increase our
        business with Asian-based OEMs, there is no assurance we will be
        successful. Our inability to successfully grow our sales to non-
        traditional customers could have a material adverse effect on our
        profitability.

    -   While we supply parts for a wide variety of vehicles produced
        globally, we do not supply parts for all vehicles produced, nor is
        the number or value of parts evenly distributed among the vehicles
        for which we do supply parts. Shifts in market shares among vehicles
        or vehicle segments, particularly shifts away from vehicles on which
        we have significant content and shifts away from vehicle segments in
        which our sales may be more heavily concentrated, or the early
        termination, loss, renegotiation of the terms of, or delay in the
        implementation of, any significant production or assembly contract
        could have a material adverse effect on our profitability.

    -   Many of our customers have sought, and will likely continue to seek
        to take advantage of lower operating costs and/or other advantages in
        China, India, Brazil, Russia and other developing markets. While we
        continue to expand our manufacturing footprint with a view to taking
        advantage of manufacturing opportunities in these markets, we cannot
        guarantee that we will be able to fully realize such opportunities.
        Additionally, the establishment of manufacturing operations in new
        markets carries its own risks, including those relating to political
        and economic instability; trade, customs and tax risks; currency
        exchange rates; currency controls; limitations on the repatriation of
        funds; insufficient infrastructure; and other risks associated with
        conducting business internationally. The inability to quickly adjust
        our manufacturing footprint to take advantage of manufacturing
        opportunities in these markets could harm our ability to compete with
        other suppliers operating in or from such markets, which could have
        an adverse effect on our profitability.

    -   Prices for certain key raw materials and commodities used in our
        parts, particularly resin and other oil-based items, have been
        escalating and may continue to do so. To the extent we are unable to
        mitigate commodities price increases through hedging strategies, by
        engineering products with reduced commodity content, by passing
        commodity price increases to our customers or otherwise, such
        additional commodity costs could have a material adverse effect on
        our profitability.

    -   We currently have a global credit facility with a syndicate of
        lenders that is set to mature in July 2012. While we intend to seek a
        renewal of the credit facility prior to its maturity, the terms of
        any renewal are subject to a number of factors, including prevailing
        economic, financial and industry conditions. There is no guarantee
        that we will be successful in negotiating terms, including cost of
        borrowing and restrictive covenants, which are as favourable as those
        in our current credit facility. In addition, there can be no
        assurance that the aggregate borrowing limit under any renewed credit
        facility will be sufficient to meet our liquidity requirements and,
        as a result, we may be required to seek more other sources of
        capital, which may be more costly, which could have an adverse effect
        on our financial condition.

    -   The failure of any major financial institutions in the future could
        lead to significant disruptions in capital and credit markets and
        could adversely affect our and our customers' ability to access
        needed liquidity for working capital. In addition, in the event of a
        failure of a financial institution - in which we invest our cash
        reserves; that is a counterparty in a derivatives transaction
        (primarily currency and commodities hedges) with us; or that is a
        lender to us - we face the risk that that our cash reserves and
        amounts owing to us pursuant to derivative transactions may not be
        fully recoverable, or the amount of credit available to us may be
        significantly reduced. All of these risks could have an adverseeffect
        on our financial condition.

    -   Europe is currently in the midst of a "sovereign debt" crisis as a
        result of widespread concern about the ability of several European
        governments to repay its outstanding indebtedness. The crisis has
        necessitated comprehensive financial rescue packages in an attempt to
        avert more serious financial turmoil. Despite the financial rescue
        efforts to date, additional actions may be required in the short-term
        and considerable uncertainty remains with respect to the economic
        condition of several European countries. A deepening of the sovereign
        debt crisis in Europe or a spread of the crisis beyond Europe could
        undermine credit markets, equity and bond markets, and consumer
        confidence, which in turn could have negative consequences for the
        global economy. In such circumstances, many of the risks faced by the
        automotive industry and our business could intensify, which could
        have a material adverse effect on our operations, financial condition
        and profitability.

    -   Although our financial results are reported in U.S. dollars, a
        significant portion of our sales and operating costs are realized in
        Canadian dollars, euros, British pounds and other currencies. Our
        profitability is affected by movements of the U.S. dollar against the
        Canadian dollar, the euro, the British pound and other currencies in
        which we generate revenues and incur expenses. However, as a result
        of hedging programs employed by us, foreign currency transactions are
        not fully impacted by movements in exchange rates. We record foreign
        currency transactions at the hedged rate where applicable. Despite
        these measures, significant long-term fluctuations in relative
        currency values, in particular a significant change in the relative
        values of the U.S. dollar, Canadian dollar, euro or British pound,
        could have an adverse effect on our profitability and financial
        condition and any sustained change in such relative currency values
        could adversely impact our competitiveness in certain geographic
        regions.

    -   We have completed a number of acquisitions and may continue to do so
        in the future. In those product areas in which we have identified
        acquisitions as a key aspect of our business strategy, we may not be
        able to identify suitable acquisition targets or successfully acquire
        any suitable targets which we identify. Additionally, we may not be
        able to successfully integrate or achieve anticipated synergies from
        those acquisitions which we do complete and such failure could have a
        material adverse effect on our profitability.

    -   We face significant pricing pressure, as well as pressure to absorb
        costs related to product design, engineering and tooling, as well as
        other items previously paid for directly by OEMs. The continuation or
        intensification of these pricing pressures and pressure to absorb
        costs could have an adverse effect on our profitability.

    -   Our customers continue to demand that we bear the cost of the repair
        and replacement of defective products which are either covered under
        their warranty or are the subject of a recall by them. Warranty
        provisions are established based on our best estimate of the amounts
        necessary to settle existing or probable claims on product defect
        issues. Recall costs are costs incurred when government regulators
        and/or our customers decide to recall a product due to a known or
        suspected performance issue and we are required to participate either
        voluntarily or involuntarily. Currently, under most customer
        agreements, we only account for existing or probable warranty claims.
        Under certain complete vehicle engineering and assembly contracts, we
        record an estimate of future warranty-related costs based on the
        terms of the specific customer agreements and the specific customer's
        warranty experience. While we possess considerable historical
        warranty and recall data and experience with respect to the products
        we currently produce, we have little or no warranty and recall data
        which allows us to establish accurate estimates of, or provisions
        for, future warranty or recall costs relating to new products,
        assembly programs or technologies being brought into production. The
        obligation to repair or replace such products could have a material
        adverse effect on our profitability and financial condition.

    -   Our vehicle electrification business is currently conducted through a
        partnership, E-Car, which is indirectly controlled by
        the Stronach group as a result of its right to appoint three of the
        five members of the management committee through which the business
        and affairs of the partnership are managed and controlled. Subject to
        our veto rights in respect of certain fundamental changes and
        specified business decisions, the Stronach group is able to cause
        E-Car to effect transactions without our consent. In
        addition, E-Car has an unrestricted right to compete
        with us, now or in the future, in the design, engineering,
        manufacture or sale of electric or hybrid-electric vehicle
        components. Despite the Stronach group's control of E-Car,
        our customers may continue to look to us for resolution of
        financial, operational, quality or warranty issues relating to
        programs for which E-Car is responsible.

    -   We have no obligation to make additional investments in Magna E-Car
        Systems under the terms of the E-Car partnership agreement.
        However, there is no assurance that the initial capital
        contributions made by us and the Stronach group to E-Car
        will be sufficient to fund its ongoing operations. Subject to
        approval by the unconflicted members of our Board (which excludes Mr.
        Stronach, who would have a conflict of interest), we may or may not
        choose to make further investments in E-Car. That determination
        will be based on what will best serve Magna's long-term business.
        Our ability to recover our initial investment or any potential
        subsequent investment(s) in E-Car is subject to a number of risks
        and uncertainties, including E-Car's ability to successfully
        introduce and commercially provide its products and services. The
        failure to recover our investment in E-Car could adversely affect
        Magna's profitability.

    -   We continue to pursue opportunities in areas that are complementary
        to our existing automotive design, engineering and manufacturing
        capabilities, such as structural elements and panels for solar
        panels, stamped components for consumer durables, including household
        appliances, and various components for heavy trucks, all in order to
        more efficiently use our capital assets, technological know-how and
        manufacturing capacity. Many of these "non-automotive" industries are
        subject to some of the same types of risks as our automotive
        business, including: sensitivity to economic conditions, cyclicality
        and technology risks. We also face a diverse number of competitors
        possessing varying degrees of financial and operational strength and
        experience in their industry. Failure to successfully compete in
        these and other non-automotive businesses could have an adverse
        effect on our operations and profitability.

    -   From time to time, we may become liable for legal, contractual and
        other claims by various parties, including customers, suppliers,
        former employees, class action plaintiffs and others. On an ongoing
        basis, we attempt to assess the likelihood of any adverse judgments
        or outcomes to these claims, although it is difficult to predict
        final outcomes with any degree of certainty. At this time, we do not
        believe that any of the claims to which we are party will have a
        material adverse effect on our financial position; however, we cannot
        provide any assurance to this effect.

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 and year ended December 31, 2010 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, 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 increased 57% or $4.3 billion to $11.8 billion for 2010 compared to $7.5 billion for 2009. This increase in production sales reflects a 39% increase in North American vehicle production volumes combined with a 13% increase in our North American average dollar content per vehicle.

Our average dollar content per vehicle grew by 13% or $116 to $988 for 2010 compared to $872 for 2009, primarily as a result of:

    <<
    -   the launch of new programs during or subsequent to 2009, including
        the:
        -  Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain;
        -  Jeep Grand Cherokee;
        -  Ford Fiesta;
        -  Chevrolet Cruze; and
        -  Cadillac SRX;
    -   favourable production (relative to industry volumes) and/or content
        on certain programs, including the:
        -  Dodge Grand Caravan, Chrysler Town & Country and Volkswagen
           Routan;
        -  GM full-sized pickups and SUVs;
        -  Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave; and
        -  Jeep Wrangler;
    -   an increase in reported U.S. dollar sales due to the strengthening of
        the Canadian dollar against the U.S. dollar; and
    -   the acquisition of several facilities from Meridian Automotive
        Systems Inc. ("Meridian") in the third quarter of 2009.
    >>

These factors were partially offset by:

    <<
    -   programs that ended production during or subsequent to 2009,
        including the Pontiac, Saturn and Mercury brands;
    -   unfavourable production (relative to industry volumes) and/or content
        on certain programs, including the Ford Escape and Mazda Tribute; and
    -   net customer price concessions subsequent to 2009.
    >>

External Production Sales - Europe

External production sales in Europe increased 22% or $1.28 billion to $7.14 billion for 2010 compared to $5.86 billion for 2009. This increase in production sales reflects an 8% increase in our European average dollar content per vehicle combined with a 12% increase in European vehicle production volumes.

Our average dollar content per vehicle grew by 8% or $41 to $536 for 2010 compared to $495 for 2009, primarily as a result of:

    <<
    -   the launch of new programs during or subsequent to 2009, including
        the:
        -  MINI Countryman;
        -  Mercedes-Benz SLS;
        -  Peugeot RCZ;
        -  Porsche Panamera; and
        -  Porsche Cayenne and Volkswagen Touareg;
    -   favourable production (relative to industry volumes) and/or content
        on certain programs; and
    -   acquisitions completed during or subsequent to 2009, including
        Cadence.
    >>

These factors were partially offset by:

    <<
    -   a decrease in reported U.S. dollar sales due to the weakening of the
        euro and British pound, each against the U.S. dollar;
    -   unfavourable production (relative to industry volumes) and/or content
        on certain programs;
    -   programs that ended production during or subsequent to 2009,
        including the BMW X3; and
    -   net customer price concessions subsequent to 2009.
    >>

External Production Sales - Rest of World

External production sales in Rest of World increased 53% or $355 million to $1.03 billion for 2010 compared to $0.68 billion for 2009, primarily as a result of:

    <<
    -   increased production and/or content on certain programs in China and
        Korea;
    -   the acquisition of a Japanese roof systems facility in the first
        quarter of 2010;
    -   the launch of new programs during or subsequent to 2009 in China and
        Korea;
    -   an increase in reported U.S. dollar sales as a result of the
        strengthening of the Brazilian real and Korean Won, both against the
        U.S. dollar; and
    -   production related to the launch of new facilities in Korea and
        India.
    >>

These factors were partially offset by:

    <<
    -   the sale of our interest in an electronics systems joint venture in
        China in the first quarter of 2010; and
    -   net customer price concessions subsequent to 2009.
    >>

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 sales. 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 sales, 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 increased 23% or $0.4 billion to $2.2 billion for 2010 compared to $1.8 billion for 2009, while assembly volumes increased 52% or 29,563 units.

The increase in complete vehicle assembly sales is primarily as a result of:

    <<
    -   the launch of new assembly programs during or subsequent to 2009,
        including the:
        -  MINI Countryman;
        -  Peugeot RCZ; and
        -  Aston Martin Rapide; and
    -   an increase in assembly volumes for the Mercedes-Benz G-Class.
    >>

These factors were partially offset by the end of production on certain assembly programs at our Magna Steyr facility, including the:

    <<
    -   BMW X3 in the third quarter of 2010;
    -   Saab 9(3) Convertible in the fourth quarter of 2009; and
    -   Chrysler 300 and Jeep Grand Cherokee in the second quarter of 2010.
    >>

In addition, complete vehicle assembly sales were negatively impacted by a decrease in reported U.S. dollar sales due to the weakening of the euro against the U.S. dollar.

Tooling, Engineering and Other

Tooling, engineering and other sales increased 26% or $0.4 billion to $2.0 billion for 2010 compared to $1.6 billion for 2009.

In 2010, the major programs for which we recorded tooling, engineering and other sales were the:

    <<
    -   MINI Cooper and Countryman;
    -   BMW X3;
    -   Mercedes-Benz M-Class;
    -   Ford Fiesta;
    -   Jeep Grand Cherokee;
    -   Volkswagen Touareg;
    -   Chrysler 300C, Dodge Charger and Challenger;
    -   Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra;
    -   Porsche Cayenne; and
    -   Peugeot RCZ.
    >>

In 2009, the major programs for which we recorded tooling, engineering and other sales were the:

    <<
    -   MINI Cooper, Clubman and Crossman;
    -   Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra;
    -   Porsche Panamera;
    -   Opel/Vauxhall Astra;
    -   Audi Q5;
    -   BMW X3;
    -   Porsche Boxster and Cayman;
    -   Porsche Cayenne;
    -   Mercedes-Benz M-Class;
    -   Peugeot RCZ;
    -   Cadillac SRX and Saab 9-4X;
    -   Ford F-Series; and
    -   Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
    >>

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

Gross Margin

Gross margin increased $1.5 billion to $3.2 billion for 2010 compared to $1.7 billion for 2009 and gross margin as a percentage of total sales increased to 13.2% for 2010 compared to 9.6% for 2009. The unusual items discussed in the "Unusual Items" section negatively impacted gross margin as a percentage of total sales in 2010 by 0.1%. Excluding unusual items, gross margin as a percentage of total sales increased 3.7% substantially due to increased gross margin earned as a result of significantly higher vehicle production volumes. In addition, gross margin as a percentage of total sales was positively impacted by:

    <<
    -   lower restructuring and downsizing costs and the benefit of prior
        year restructuring and downsizing activities;
    -   productivity and efficiency improvements at certain facilities;
    -   acquisitions completed during or subsequent to 2009;
    -   favourable settlement of certain commercial items;
    -   the write-off of uncollectable pre-production costs incurred related
        to the cancellation of assembly programs in 2009;
    -   the $20 million benefit related to the recovery of previously
        expensed engineering and design costs; and
    -   lower costs incurred related to launches at our Complete Vehicle
        Assembly operations.
    >>

These factors were partially offset by:

    <<
    -   higher costs incurred related to launches at our components business;
    -   operational inefficiencies and other costs at certain facilities, in
        particular at certain exteriors and interiors systems facilities in
        Europe;
    -   employee profit sharing, as no profit sharing was recorded in 2009;
    -   increased commodity costs;
    -   higher development and launch costs in E-Car;
    -   an increase in complete vehicle assembly sales which have a lower
        gross margin than our consolidated average;
    -   an increase in tooling sales that earn low or no margins; and
    -   net customer price concessions subsequent to 2009.
    >>

Depreciation and Amortization

Depreciation and amortization costs decreased 10% or $76 million to $661 million for 2010 compared to $737 million for 2009. The decrease in depreciation and amortization was primarily as a result of:

    <<
    -   the impairment of certain assets during or subsequent to 2009;
    -   lower capital spending in recent years; and
    -   the disposition of certain facilities subsequent to 2009.
    >>

These factors were partially offset by an increase in reported U.S. dollar depreciation and amortization due to the strengthening of the Canadian dollar against the U.S. dollar;

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

SG&A expense as a percentage of sales was 5.6% for 2010, compared to 7.3% for 2009. The unusual items discussed in the "Unusual Items" section negatively impacted SG&A as a percentage of total sales by 0.1% in 2009. Excluding these unusual items, SG&A as a percentage of total sales decreased 1.6%.

SG&A expense increased $79 million to $1.34 billion for 2010 compared to $1.26 billion for 2009. Excluding the unusual items recorded in 2010 and 2009 (as discussed in the "Unusual Items" section), SG&A expenses increased by $101 million primarily as a result of:

    <<
    -   higher incentive compensation;
    -   a $20 million stock-based compensation charge as a result of
        modifying option agreements with three departing executives and a
        related $9 million contract termination payment;
    -   higher stock-based compensation;
    -   a $9 million favourable revaluation of our investment in ABCP in
        2009;
    -   an increase in reported U.S. dollar SG&A due to the strengthening of
        the Canadian dollar against the U.S. dollar; and
    -   higher costs to support the increased sales level.
    >>

These factors were partially offset by:

    <<
    -   a $32 million recovery, during 2010, of receivables that were fully
        provided for in 2009;
    -   lower restructuring and downsizing costs;
    -   due diligence costs incurred in 2009 associated with our planned
        investment in Opel, which terminated during 2009;
    -   loss on disposal of assets in 2009;
    -   net gain on disposal of assets; and
    -   the closure or disposition of certain facilities during or subsequent
        to 2009.

Impairment Charges

Impairment charges decreased $160 million to $23 million for 2010 compared to $183 million for 2009 as discussed in the "Unusual Items" section.

North America

EBIT in North America increased $1.2 billion to $1.1 billion for 2010 compared to a loss of $0.1 billion for 2009. Excluding the North American unusual items discussed in the "Unusual Items" section, the $1.1 billion increase in EBIT was substantially due to increased margins earned on higher sales as a result of higher vehicle production volumes. In addition, EBIT was positively impacted by:

    <<
    -   lower restructuring and downsizing costs and the benefit of prior
        year restructuring and downsizing activities;
    -   productivity and efficiency improvements at certain facilities;
    -   lower warranty costs;
    -   the launch of new facilities;
    -   a $6 million recovery, during 2010, of receivables that were fully
        provided for in 2009; and
    -   a gain on sale of an investment.
    >>

These factors were partially offset by:

    <<
    -   higher costs incurred related to launches;
    -   higher affiliation fees paid to Corporate;
    -   higher incentive compensation;
    -   employee profit sharing, as no profit sharing was recorded in 2009;
    -   increased commodity costs;
    -   operational inefficiencies and other costs at certain facilities; and
    -   net customer price concessions subsequent to 2009.

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

Europe

EBIT in Europe increased $0.5 billion to $0.1 billion for 2010 compared to a loss of $0.4 billion for 2009. Excluding the European unusual items discussed in the "Unusual Items" section, the $0.4 billion increase in EBIT was substantially due to increased margins earned on higher sales as a result of higher vehicle production volumes. In addition, EBIT was positively impacted by:

    <<
    -   lower restructuring and downsizing costs and the benefit of prior
        year restructuring and downsizing activities;
    -   a $26 million recovery, during 2010, of receivables that were fully
        provided for in 2009;
    -   favourable settlement of certain commercial items;
    -   the write-off of uncollectable pre-production costs incurred related
        to the cancellation of assembly programs in 2009;
    -   lower costs incurred related to launches at our Complete Vehicle
        Assembly operations;
    -   the sale or closure of certain underperforming divisions during or
        subsequent to 2009;
    -   incremental margin earned related to the acquisition of Cadence; and
    -   productivity and efficiency improvements at certain facilities.
    >>

These factors were partially offset by:

    <<
    -   operational inefficiencies and other costs at certain facilities, in
        particular at certain exteriors and interiors systems facilities;
    -   employee profit sharing, as no profit sharing was recorded in 2009;
    -   higher costs incurred related to launches at our components
        business, including Russia;
    -   higher affiliation fees paid to Corporate;
    -   increased commodity costs;
    -   higher warranty costs;
    -   higher incentive compensation; and
    -   net customer price concessions subsequent to 2009.
    >>

Rest of World

Rest of World EBIT increased $49 million to $92 million for 2010 compared to $43 million for 2009. Excluding the Rest of World unusual items discussed in the "Unusual Items" section, the $35 million increase was primarily as a result of:

    <<
    -   additional margin earned on increased production sales; and
    -   incremental margin earned on new programs that launched during or
        subsequent to 2009.
    >>

These factors were partially offset by:

    <<
    -   higher launch costs related to new facilities, primarily in Korea,
        Brazil and India;
    -   the write-off of certain assets;
    -   higher warranty costs;
    -   higher affiliation fees paid to Corporate;
    -   net customer price concessions subsequent to 2009; and
    -   increased commodity costs.
    >>

E-Car Systems

E-Car Systems EBIT decreased $48 million to a loss of $89 million for 2010 compared to a loss of $41 million for 2009, primarily as a result of higher development and launch costs.

Corporate and Other

Corporate and Other EBIT increased $37 million to a loss of $3 million for 2010 compared to a loss of $40 million for 2009, primarily as a result of:

    <<
    -   an increase in affiliation fees earned from our divisions;
    -   the positive impact of foreign exchange;
    -   due diligence costs incurred in 2009 associated with our planned
        investment in Opel, which terminated during 2009;
    -   the $20 million benefit related to the recovery of previously
        expensed engineering and design costs;
    -   an increase in equity income earned; and
    -   loss on disposal of assets in 2009.
    >>

These factors were partially offset by:

    <<
    -   higher incentive compensation;
    -   a $20 million stock-based compensation charge as a result of
        modifying option agreements with three departing executives and a
        related $9 million contract termination payment;
    -   higher stock-based compensation;
    -   a $9 million favourable revaluation of our investment in ABCP in
        2009; and
    -   loss on disposal of assets.
    >>

Interest (Income) Expense, net

During 2010, we recorded net interest income of $10 million compared to $7 million of net interest expense for 2009. The $17 million increase in net interest income is as a result of:

    <<
    -   a reduction in interest expense due to the repayment of our 7.08%
        Subordinated Debentures and our 6.5% Convertible Subordinated
        Debentures during 2009;
    -   an increase in interest income earned.
    >>

Operating Income

Operating income increased $1.7 billion to income of $1.2 billion for 2010 compared to a loss of $0.5 billion for 2009. Excluding the unusual items discussed in the "Unusual items" section, operating income for 2010 increased $1.6 billion. The increase in operating income is the result of the increases in EBIT (excluding unusual items) and net interest income, both as discussed above.

Income Taxes

Our effective income tax rate on operating income (excluding equity income) was 20.3% for 2010 compared to a recovery of 3.5% for 2009. In 2010 and 2009, income tax rates were impacted by the items discussed in the unusual items section. Excluding the unusual items, our effective income tax rate was 20.2% for 2010 compared to a recovery of 6.7% for 2009. Our income tax rate for 2010 reflected more traditional rates as a result of our return to profitability in most jurisdictions. In addition, our effective income tax rate for 2010 was favourably impacted by the utilization of losses previously not benefited, mainly in the United States.

Minority Interest

During 2010, we recorded $12 million of minority interest recovery with respect to the loss incurred by our E-Car Systems partnership.

Net Income

Net income increased $1.5 billion to $1.0 billion for 2010 compared to a loss of $0.5 billion for 2009. Excluding the unusual items discussed in the "Unusual items" section, net income increased $1.3 billion. The increase in net income is the result of the increase in operating income and minority interest recovery partially offset by higher income taxes, as discussed above.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    >>

Diluted earnings per share increased $6.39 to $4.18 for 2010 compared to a loss of $2.21 for 2009. Excluding the unusual items discussed in the "Unusual items" section, diluted earnings per share increased $5.66 from 2009 as a result of the increase in net income (excluding unusual items), described above, partially offset by an increase in the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding during the year.

The increase in the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding was primarily due to the net issue of shares during 2010 related to the Arrangement and an increase in the number of diluted shares associated with stock options and restricted stock partially offset by the effect of the repurchase and cancellation of Common Shares in 2010 pursuant to our normal course issuer bid.

Cash flow from operations before changes in non-cash operating assets and liabilities increased $1.1 billion to $1.7 billion for 2010 compared to $0.6 billion for 2009. The increase in cash flow from operations was due to a $1.5 billion increase in net income, as discussed above, partially offset by a $0.4 billion decrease in items not involving current cash flows. Items not involving current cash flows are comprised of the following:

    >>

The decrease in items not involving current cash flows was primarily as a result of a $160 million decrease in long-lived asset impairments (as discussed above), a $76 million decrease in depreciation and amortization (as discussed above), a $68 million decrease in future income taxes and non-cash portion of current taxes and a $54 million decrease in other non-cash charges. The decrease in other non-cash charges includes both the previously discussed settlement of commercial items and the sale of facilities.

Cash provided from non-cash operating assets and liabilities amounted to $177 million for 2010 compared to cash invested of $94 million for 2009. The change in non-cash operating assets and liabilities is comprised of the following sources (and uses) of cash:

The increases in accounts receivable, inventories and accounts payable in 2010 was primarily due to the increase in production activities at the end of 2010 compared to the end of 2009, including the launch of new programs which includes complete vehicle assembly of the Peugeot RCZ in the fourth quarter of 2009 and the Aston Martin Rapide in the first quarter of 2010. The increase in income taxes payable was primarily due to a higher income tax provision, resulting from increased earnings, offset by current year tax payments and receipt of tax refunds for prior years.

Fixed and other assets additions

In 2010, we invested $784 million in fixed assets. 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 2010 was for manufacturing equipment for programs that will be launching subsequent to 2010. Consistent with our strategy to expand in developing markets, approximately 19% (2009 - 18%) of this investment was in Russia, China, Brazil and India.

In 2010, we invested $137 million in other assets related primarily to fully reimbursable tooling costs and planning and engineering costs for programs that will be launching subsequent to 2010. The tooling costs were incurred primarily at our body & chassis systems operations in North America.

Purchase of subsidiaries

During 2010, we invested $106 million to purchase subsidiaries, including the acquisition of:

    <<
    -   Resil Minas, a supplier of seat frames and stampings. The acquired
        business is primarily located in Brazil with sales to various
        customers, including Fiat, Ford, General Motors, Volkswagen, IVECO
        and PSA;
    -   Pabsa S.A., a supplier of complete seats, foam products, trim covers
        and seat structures. The acquired business has three production
        facilities in Argentina; and
    -   Erhard & Sohne GmbH, a manufacturer of fuel tanks for commercial
        vehicles and other specialty tanks. The acquired business is located
        in Germany and has sales to various customers including MAN, Daimler
        and Scania.
    >>

During 2009, we invested $50 million to purchase subsidiaries, including the acquisition of:

    <<
    -   Cadence, a manufacturer of exterior and interior systems. The
        acquired business is primarily located in the Czech Republic with
        sales to various customers, including Skoda; and
    -   several facilities from Meridian. The facilities are located in the
        United States and Mexico and manufacture composites for various
        customers.
    >>

Proceeds from disposition

Proceeds from disposition in 2010 were $287 million which included:

    <<
    -   normal course reimbursement received in respect of planning and
        engineering costs that were capitalized in prior periods;
    -   normal course fixed and other asset disposals;
    -   a cash payment received on the sale of a long-term receivable related
        to fully reimbursable capitalized pre-production costs;
    -   the cash proceeds received on the sale of an electronics facility;
    -   a cash payment received on the sale of a long-term engineering
        receivable;

Due to continuing strong operating and cash flow performance, on February 23, 2011 our Board declared a dividend of U.S. $0.25 per share in respect of the fourth quarter of 2010, representing an increase of 39% over the third quarter of 2010 dividend and the third consecutive dividend increase since the reintroduction of the dividend in the first quarter of 2010.

    >>

Total capitalization increased by $0.7 billion to $8.2 billion at December 31, 2010 compared to $7.5 billion at December 31, 2009. The increase in capitalization was a result of a $0.7 billion increase in shareholders' equity and a $0.1 billion increase in minority interest partially offset by a $0.1 billion decrease in liabilities.

The increase in shareholders' equity was primarily as a result of:

    <<
    -   net income earned during 2010;
    -   net unrealized gains on cash flow hedges, and the reclassification of
        net gains on cash flow hedges from accumulated other comprehensive
        income to net income;
    -   Common Shares issued on the exercise of stock options; and
    -   an increase in contributed surplus related to stock-based
        compensation expense.
    >>

These factors were partially offset by:

    <<
    -   the repurchase of Class B Shares in connection with the Arrangement;
    -   dividends paid during 2010; and
    -   the purchase for cancellation of Common Shares in connection with our
        normal course issuer bid.
    >>

The increase in minority interest was as a result of the formation of E-Car.

The decrease in liabilities is primarily as a result of the repayment in 2010 of debt assumed on the acquisition of Cadence.

Cash Resources

During 2010, our cash resources increased by $0.8 billion to $2.1 billion primarily as a result of the cash provided from operating activities partially offset by cash used for investing activities and financing activities (including cash used for the Arrangement), as discussed above. In addition to our cash resources, we had term and operating lines of credit totalling $2.0 billion of which $1.9 billion was unused and available.

On November 9, 2010, the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") accepted our Notice of Intention to Make a Normal Course Issuer Bid relating to the purchase of up to 8,000,000 Magna Common Shares (the "Bid"), representing 3.3% of our issued and outstanding Common Shares. The Bid commenced on November 11, 2010 and will terminate no later than November 10, 2011. All purchases of Common Shares are made at the market price at the time of purchase in accordance with the rules and policies of the TSX. Purchases may also be made on the NYSE in compliance with Rule 10b-18 under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Foreign Currency Activities

Our North American operations negotiate sales contracts with OEMs for payment in both U.S. and Canadian dollars. Materials and equipment are purchased in various currencies depending upon competitive factors, including relative currency values. The North American operations use labour and materials which are paid for in both U.S. and Canadian dollars. Our Mexican operations generally use the U.S. dollar as the functional currency.

Our European operations negotiate sales contracts with OEMs for payment principally in euros and British pounds. The European operations' material, equipment and labour are paid for principally in euros and British pounds.

We employ hedging programs, primarily through the use of foreign exchange forward contracts, in an effort to manage our foreign exchange exposure, which arises when manufacturing facilities have committed to the delivery of products for which the selling price has been quoted in foreign currencies. These commitments represent our contractual obligations to deliver products over the duration of the product programs, which can last a number of years. The amount and timing of the forward contracts will be dependent upon a number of factors, including anticipated production delivery schedules and anticipated production costs, which may be paid in the foreign currency. In addition, we enter into foreign exchange contracts to manage foreign exchange exposure with respect to internal funding arrangements. Despite these measures, significant long-term fluctuations in relative currency values, in particular a significant change in the relative values of the U.S. dollar, Canadian dollar, euro or British pound, could have an adverse effect on our profitability and financial condition (as discussed throughout this MD&A).

    RESULTS OF OPERATIONS - FOR THE THREE MONTHS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2010
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    >>

During the fourth quarter of 2010, we posted sales of $6.6 billion, an increase of 22% from the fourth quarter of 2009. This higher sales level was a result of increases in our North American, European and Rest of World production sales, tooling, engineering and other sales and complete vehicle assembly sales. Comparing the fourth quarter of 2010 to the fourth quarter of 2009:

    <<
    -   North American vehicle production increased by 7% and average dollar
        content per vehicle increased 17%;
    -   European vehicle production increased 7% and average dollar content
        per vehicle increased 6%;
    -   Complete vehicle assembly sales increased 19% to $608 million, as
        complete vehicle assembly volumes increased 59%;
    -   Rest of World production sales increased 32% to $292 million from
        $221 million; and
    -   Tooling, engineering and other sales increased 30% to $710 million
        from $547 million.
    >>

During the fourth quarter of 2010, we generated operating income of $222 million compared to an operating loss of $125 million for the fourth quarter of 2009. Excluding the unusual items recorded in the fourth quarters of 2010 and 2009, as discussed in the "Unusual Items" section, the $242 million increase in operating income was substantially due to increased margins earned on higher sales as a result of significantly higher vehicle production volumes. In addition, operating income was positively impacted by:

    <<
    -   lower restructuring and downsizing costs and the benefit of prior
        year restructuring and downsizing activities;
    -   a $24 million recovery, during the fourth quarter of 2010, of
        receivables that had a $16 million accounts receivable valuation
        allowance recorded in the fourth quarter of 2009;
    -   lower costs incurred related to launches at our Complete Vehicle
        Assembly operations;
    -   the write-off of uncollectable pre-production costs incurred related
        to the cancellation of assembly programs in 2009;
    -   due diligence costs incurred in 2009 associated with our planned
        investment in Opel, which terminated during 2009;
    -   lower warranty costs; and
    -   productivity and efficiency improvements at certain facilities.
    >>

These factors were partially offset by:

    <<
    -   operational inefficiencies and other costs at certain facilities,
        in particular at certain exteriors and interiors systems facilities
        in Europe;
    -   higher incentive compensation;
    -   higher costs incurred related to launches at our components
        operations, in particular in North America and China;
    -   increased commodity costs;
    -   employee profit sharing, as no profit sharing was recorded in 2009;
    -   a $4 million stock-based compensation charge as a result of modifying
        option agreements with a departing executive and a related $9 million
        contract termination payment;
    -   increased stock-based compensation; and
    -   net customer price concessions subsequent to the fourth quarter of
        2009.
    >>

During the fourth quarter of 2010, net income increased $355 million to $216 million compared to a net loss of $139 million for the fourth quarter of 2009. Excluding the unusual items recorded in the fourth quarters of 2010 and 2009, as discussed in the "Unusual Items" section, net income for the fourth quarter of 2010 increased $248 million. The increase in net income was a result of the increase in operating income and minority interest recovery partially offset by higher income taxes.

During the fourth quarter of 2010, our diluted earnings per share increased by $1.50 to $0.88 compared to diluted loss per share of $0.62 for the fourth quarter of 2009. Excluding the unusual items recorded in the fourth quarters of 2010 and 2009, as discussed in the "Unusual Items" section, diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2010 increased by $1.01. The increase in diluted earnings per share is as a result of the increase in net income (excluding unusual items) partially offset by an increase in the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding during the fourth quarter of 2010. The increase in the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding was primarily due to the net issue of shares during the third quarter of 2010 related to the Arrangement and an increase in the number of diluted shares associated with stock options and restricted stock partially offset by the effect of the repurchase and cancellation of Common Shares during the fourth quarter of 2010 pursuant to our normal course issuer bid.

External Production Sales - North America

External production sales in North America increased 25% or $0.6 billion to $3.0 billion for the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to $2.4 billion for the fourth quarter of 2009. This increase in production sales reflects a 7% increase in North American vehicle production volumes combined with a 17% increase in our North American average dollar content per vehicle.

Our average dollar content per vehicle grew by 17% or $147 to $1,015 for the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to $868 for the fourth quarter of 2009, primarily as a result of:

    <<
    -   the launch of new programs during or subsequent to the fourth quarter
        of 2009, including the:
        -  Jeep Grand Cherokee;
        -  BWM X3;
        -  Ford Fiesta;
        -  Chevrolet Cruze; and
        -  Ford Explorer;
    -   favourable production (relative to industry volumes) and/or content
        on certain programs, including the:
        -  Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain;
        -  GM full-sized pickups and SUVs;
        -  Jeep Wrangler;
        -  Ram Pickup;
        -  Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX; and
        -  Mercedes-Benz M-Class, R-Class and GL-Class; and
    -   an increase in reported U.S. dollar sales due to the strengthening of
        the Canadian dollar against the U.S. dollar.
    >>

These factors were partially offset by:

    <<
    -   programs that ended production during or subsequent to the fourth
        quarter of 2009, including the Mercury, Pontiac and Saturn brands;
    -   unfavourable production (relative to industry volumes) and/or content
        on certain programs, including the:
        -  Ford Flex;
        -  Dodge Avenger and Chrysler Sebring; and

External Production Sales - Europe

External production sales in Europe increased 14% or $0.23 billion to $1.96 billion for fourth quarter of 2010 compared to $1.72 billion for fourth quarter of 2009. This increase in production sales reflects a 7% increase in European vehicle production volumes combined with a 6% increase in our European average dollar content per vehicle.

Our average dollar content per vehicle grew by 6% or $30 to $553 for fourth quarter of 2010 compared to $523 for the fourth quarter of 2009, primarily as a result of:

    <<
    -   the launch of new programs during or subsequent to fourth quarter of
        2009, including the:
        -  MINI Countryman;
        -  Audi A1;
        -  Porsche Cayenne and Volkswagen Touareg;
        -  Mercedes-Benz SLS; and
        -  Peugeot RCZ; and
    -   favourable production (relative to industry volumes) and/or content
        on certain programs, including the:
        -  Volkswagen Transporter; and
        -  Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
    >>

These factors were partially offset by:

    <<
    -   a decrease in reported U.S. dollar sales due to the weakening of the
        euro, against the U.S. dollar;
    -   unfavourable production (relative to industry volumes) and/or content
        on certain programs, including the MINI Cooper;
    -   programs that ended production during or subsequent to the fourth
        quarter of 2009, including the BMW X3; and
    -   net customer price concessions subsequent to the fourth quarter of
        2009.
    >>

External Production Sales - Rest of World

External production sales in Rest of World increased 32% or $71 million to $292 million for fourth quarter of 2010 compared to $221 million for the fourth quarter of 2009, primarily as a result of:

    <<
    -   increased production and/or content on certain programs in China,
        Korea, Brazil and South Africa;
    -   the acquisition of a Japanese roof systems facility in the first
        quarter of 2010; and
    -   the launch of new programs during or subsequent to the fourth quarter
        of 2009 in China and Korea.
    >>

These factors were partially offset by:

    <<
    -   the sale of our interest in an electronics systems joint venture in
        China in the first quarter of 2010; and
    -   net customer price concessions subsequent to 2009.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    >>

Complete vehicle assembly sales increased 19% or $96 million to $608 million for fourth quarter of 2010 compared to $512 million for the fourth quarter of 2009, while assembly volumes increased 59% or 9,315 units.

The increase in complete vehicle assembly sales is primarily as a result of:

    <<
    -   the launch of new assembly programs during or subsequent to the
        fourth quarter of 2009, including the:
        -  MINI Countryman;
        -  Peugeot RCZ; and
        -  Aston Martin Rapide; and
    -   an increase in assembly volumes for the Mercedes-Benz G-Class.
    >>

These factors were partially offset by the end of production on certain assembly programs at our Magna Steyr facility, including the:

    <<
    -   BMW X3 in the third quarter of 2010;
    -   Saab 9(3) Convertible in the fourth quarter of 2009; and
    -   Chrysler 300 and Jeep Grand Cherokee in the second quarter of 2010.
    >>

In addition, complete vehicle assembly sales were negatively impacted by a decrease in reported U.S. dollar sales due to the weakening of the euro against the U.S. dollar.

Tooling, Engineering and Other

Tooling, engineering and other sales increased 30% or $163 million to $710 million for fourth quarter of 2010 compared to $547 million for the fourth quarter of 2009.

In the fourth quarter of 2010, the major programs for which we recorded tooling, engineering and other sales were the:

    <<
    -   MINI Countryman;
    -   Volkswagen Touareg;
    -   Chrysler 300C, Dodge Charger and Challenger;
    -   BMW X3;
    -   Mercedes-Benz M-Class;
    -   Dodge Grand Caravan, Chrysler Town & Country and Volkswagen Routan;
    -   Audi A8; and

    -   MINI Cooper, Clubman and Crossman;
    -   Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra;
    -   BMW X3; and
    -   Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
    >>

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

North America

EBIT in North America increased $167 million to $260 million for fourth quarter of 2010 compared to $93 million for the fourth quarter of 2009. Excluding the North American unusual items discussed in the "Unusual Items" section, the $144 million increase in EBIT was substantially due to increased margins earned on higher sales as a result of higher vehicle production volumes. In addition, EBIT was positively impacted by:

    <<
    -   lower restructuring and downsizing costs and the benefit of prior
        year restructuring and downsizing activities;
    -   lower warranty costs;
    -   gain on sale of investment;
    -   productivity and efficiency improvements at certain facilities; and
    -   a $6 million recovery, during the fourth quarter of 2010, of
        receivables that had a $3 million accounts receivable valuation
        allowance recorded in the fourth quarter of 2009.
    >>

These factors were partially offset by:

    <<
    -   higher incentive compensation;
    -   employee profit sharing, as no profit sharing was recorded in 2009;
    -   higher costs incurred related to launches;
    -   higher affiliation fees paid to Corporate;
    -   increased commodity costs;
    -   operational inefficiencies and other costs at certain facilities; and
    -   net customer price concessions subsequent to the fourth quarter of
        2009.
    >>

Europe

EBIT in Europe increased $201 million to $4 million for the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to a loss of $197 million for the fourth quarter of 2009. Excluding the European unusual items discussed in the "Unusual Items" section, the $119 million increase in EBIT was substantially due to increased margins earned on higher sales as a result of higher vehicle production volumes. In addition, EBIT was positively impacted by:

    <<
    -   lower restructuring and downsizing costs and the benefit of prior
        year restructuring and downsizing activities;
    -   an $18 million recovery, during the fourth quarter of 2010, of
        receivables that had a $13 million accounts receivable valuation
        allowance recorded in the fourth quarter of 2009;
    -   the write-off of uncollectable pre-production costs incurred related
        to the cancellation of assembly programs in 2009; and
    -   lower costs incurred related to launches at our Complete Vehicle
        Assembly operations.
    >>

These factors were partially offset by:

    <<
    -   operational inefficiencies and other costs at certain facilities, in
        particular at certain exteriors and interiors systems facilities;
    -   increased commodity costs;
    -   higher affiliation fees paid to Corporate;
    -   employee profit sharing, as no profit sharing was recorded in 2009;
    -   higher costs incurred related to launches at our components
        business, in particular Russia;
    -   higher warranty costs;
    -   higher incentive compensation; and
    -   net customer price concessions subsequent to the fourth quarter of
        2009.
    >>

Rest of World

EBIT in Rest of World decreased $2 million to $16 million for the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to $18 million for the fourth quarter of 2009, primarily as a result of:

    <<
    -   higher launch costs related to new facilities, primarily in Korea,
        Brazil and India;
    -   the write-off of certain assets;
    -   higher warranty costs;
    -   net customer price concessions subsequent to 2009; and
    -   the sale of our interest in an electronics systems joint venture in
        China in the first quarter of 2010.
    >>

These factors were partially offset by:

    <<
    -   additional margin earned on increased production sales; and
    -   incremental margin earned on new programs that launched during or
        subsequent to the fourth quarter of 2009.
    >>

E-Car Systems

E-Car Systems EBIT decreased $24 million to a loss of $37 million for the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to a loss of $13 million for the fourth quarter of 2009, primarily as a result of higher development and launch costs.

Corporate and Other

Corporate and Other EBIT increased $2 million to a loss of $25 million for the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to a loss of $27 million for the fourth quarter of 2009, primarily as a result of:

    <<
    -   an increase in affiliation fees earned from our divisions;
    -   due diligence costs incurred in 2009 associated with our planned
        investment in Opel, which terminated during 2009; and
    -   loss on disposal of assets in 2009.
    >>

These factors were partially offset by:

    <<
    -   increased incentive compensation;
    -   a $4 million stock-based compensation charge as a result of modifying
        option agreements with a departing executive and a related $9 million
        contract termination payment;
    -   increased stock-based compensation; and
    -   loss on disposal of assets.


    FUTURE CHANGES IN ACCOUNTING POLICIES
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    >>

In February 2008, the Canadian Accounting Standards Board confirmed the transition from Canadian GAAP to International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") for all publicly accountable entities no later than for fiscal years commencing on or after January 1, 2011. As a result, throughout 2009, we undertook a detailed review of the implications of having to report under IFRS and also examined the alternative available to us, as a Foreign Private Issuer in the United States, of filing our primary financial statements in Canada using U.S. GAAP, as permitted by the Canadian Securities Administrators' National Instrument 51-102, ''Continuous Disclosure Obligations''.

In carrying out this evaluation, we considered many factors, including, but not limited to (i) the changes in accounting policies that would be required and the resulting impact on our reported results and key performance indicators, (ii) the reporting standards expected to be used by many of our industry comparables, and (iii) the financial reporting needs of our market participants, including shareholders, lenders, rating agencies and market analysts.

As a result of this analysis, we have determined that we will adopt U.S. GAAP as our primary basis of financial reporting with our first reporting period beginning after January 1, 2011. The adoption of U.S. GAAP is not anticipated to have a material change on our accounting policies or financial results, except for the reporting differences disclosed in note 26 of our 2009 consolidated financial statements.

    <<
    COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    >>

From time to time, we may be contingently liable for litigation and other claims.

Refer to note 24 of our 2009 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 year ended December 31, 2010 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

    <<
    FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    >>

The previous discussion contains statements that constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of applicable securities legislation, including, but not limited to, statements relating to: future purchases of our Common Shares pursuant to our normal course issuer bid and any resultant offsetting of dilution; expected North American, European and global light vehicle production; implementation of our strategy, including through organic growth and targeted acquisitions; and renewal of our current credit facility. The forward-looking information in this Press Release is presented for the purpose of providing information about management's current expectations and plans and such information may not be appropriate for other purposes. 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, and other statements that are not recitations of historical fact. We use words such as "may", "would", "could", "should", "will", "likely", "expect", "anticipate", "believe", "intend", "plan", "forecast", "outlook", "project", "estimate" and similar expressions suggesting future outcomes or events to identify forward-looking statements. Any such forward-looking statements are based on information currently available to us, and 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, many of which are beyond our control, and the effects of which can be difficult to predict, including, without limitation: the potential for a slower than anticipated economic recovery or a deterioration of economic conditions; a significant decline in production volumes from current levels and sales levels which are below forecast levels; the inability of suppliers to timely accommodate significant, rapid increases in production volumes; our dependence on outsourcing by our customers; the termination or non renewal by our customers of any material contracts; our ability to identify and successfully exploit shifts in technology; restructuring, downsizing and/or other significant non-recurring costs; impairment charges; our ability to successfully grow our sales to non-traditional customers; unfavourable product or customer mix; risks of conducting business in foreign countries, including China, India, Brazil, Russia and other developing markets; our ability to quickly shift our manufacturing footprint to take advantage of lower cost manufacturing opportunities; our ability to secure sufficient amounts of capital to meet our liquidity requirements on favourable terms, disruptions in the capital and credit markets; the deteriorating economic condition of several European governments and the potential adverse effect on the global economy; fluctuations in relative currency values; exposure to escalating commodities prices; our ability to successfully identify, complete and integrate acquisitions; pricing pressures, including our ability to offset price concessions demanded by our customers; warranty and recall costs; the financial condition and credit worthiness of some of our OEM customers, including the potential that such customers may not make, or may seek to delay or reduce, payments owed to us; the financial condition of some of our suppliers and the risk of their insolvency, bankruptcy or financial restructuring; the highly competitive nature of the automotive parts supply business; 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; risks associated with our pursuit of opportunities in complementary "non-automotive" businesses; risks associated with our partnership, Magna E-Car Systems, with the Stronach group to continue to pursue opportunities in the vehicle electrification business; 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, including, without limitation, factors set out in our Management Information Circular/Proxy Statement, dated May 31, 2010 under the heading "Risks Relating to the Vehicle Electrification Joint Venture" and "Risks to Magna of the E-Car Business". In evaluating forward-looking statements, we caution readers not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements and 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.

    MAGNA INTERNATIONAL INC.
    NOTES TO INTERIM CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
    (Unaudited)
    (All amounts in U.S. dollars and all tabular amounts in millions unless
    otherwise noted)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    1.  SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

        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, 2009
        audited consolidated financial statements and notes included in the
        Company's 2009 Annual Report. These interim consolidated financial
        statements have been prepared using the same accounting policies as
        the December 31, 2009 annual 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 December 31, 2010 and the results of operations
        and cash flows for the three-months and years ended December 31, 2010
        and 2009.

        Stock Split

        On November 24, 2010, the Company completed a two-for-one stock
        split, which was implemented by way of a stock dividend, whereby
        shareholders received an additional Common Share for each Common
        Share held. All equity-based compensation plans or arrangements were
        adjusted to reflect the issuance of additional Common Shares.

        Accordingly, all of the Company's issued and outstanding Class A
        Subordinate Voting, Common and Class B shares, including those issued
        in relation to the Arrangement (note 2), incentive stock options,
        and stock appreciation rights ("SARs") have been restated for all
        periods presented to reflect the stock split. In addition, earnings
        (loss) per Common Share or Class B Share, Cash dividends paid per
        Common Share or Class B Share, weighted average exercise price for
        stock options and the weighted average fair value of options granted
        or modified have been restated for all periods presented to reflect
        the stock split.

        Seasonality

        Our businesses are generally not seasonal. However, our sales and
        profits are closely related to our automotive customers' vehicle
        production schedules. Our largest North American customers typically
        halt production for approximately two weeks in July and one week in
        December. Additionally, many of our customers in Europe typically
        shutdown vehicle production during portions of August and one week in
        December.

    2.  PLAN OF ARRANGEMENT

        On August 31, 2010, following approval by the Class A Subordinate
        Voting and Class B Shareholders, the Company completed a court-
        approved plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement") in which the
        Company's dual-class share structure was collapsed. In addition,
        the transaction: (i) set a termination date and declining fee
        schedule for the consulting, business development and business
        services contracts Magna has in place with its Chairman, Frank
        Stronach and his affiliated entities; and (ii) established a
        partnership with the Stronach group to pursue opportunities in the
        vehicle electrification business.

        (a) Capital Transaction

            The Company purchased for cancellation all 1,453,658
            outstanding Class B Shares (restated to reflect the stock
            split), which were held indirectly by the Stronach group, for
            $300 million in cash and 18.0 million newly issued Class A
            Subordinate Voting Shares (restated to reflect the stock
            split). The newly issued shares held indirectly by the Stronach
            group represented an equal equity ownership and voting interest
            of 7.4% as of August 31, 2010. The costs related to the
            Arrangement were $10 million, net of tax.

            In addition, Magna's Articles were amended to remove the Class
            B Shares from the authorized capital and to make non-substantive
            consequential changes, including renaming the Class A
            Subordinate Voting Shares as Common Shares and eliminating
            provisions which no longer apply due to the elimination of
            the Class B Shares.

        (b) Vehicle Electrification Partnership

            The partnership, Magna E-Car Systems ("E-Car"), involves the
            engineering, development and integration of electric vehicles of
            any type, the development, testing and manufacturing of
            batteries and battery packs for hybrid and electric vehicles and
            all ancillary activities in connection with electric vehicle
            technologies. Magna's original investment in the partnership
            included the assets of the Company's recently established E-Car
            Systems vehicle electrification and battery business unit,
            certain other vehicle electrification assets, and $145 million
            in cash. On August 31, 2010, the Stronach group invested $80
            million in cash for a 27% equity interest in the partnership,
            reducing Magna's equity interest to 73%. The partnership is
            controlled by the Stronach group.

        The impact of the Arrangement on the August 31, 2010 consolidated
        balance sheet was as follows (restated to reflect the stock split):

        (a) North America

        For the year ended December 31, 2010

        During the fourth quarter of 2010, the Company recorded long-lived
        asset impairment charges of $7 million ($5 million after tax) related
        to a die casting facility in Canada. In addition, the Company
        recorded restructuring and rationalization costs of $8 million
        ($6 million after tax) in costs of goods sold related to the planned
        closure of a powertrain systems facility the United States.

        During the second quarter of 2010, the Company recorded restructuring
        and rationalization costs of $21 million ($18 million after tax) in
        costs of goods sold and $3 million ($3 million after tax) in selling,
        general and administrative expense related to the planned closure of
        a powertrain systems facility and two body & chassis systems
        facilities in the United States, substantially all of which will
        be paid subsequent to 2010.

        For the year ended December 31, 2009

        In conjunction with its annual business planning cycle, during the
        fourth quarter of 2009 the Company determined that its Car Top
        Systems ("CTS") North America reporting unit could potentially be
        impaired, primarily as a result of: (i) a dramatic reduction in the
        market for soft tops, hard tops and modular retractable hard tops;
        and (ii) historical losses that are projected to continue throughout
        the Company's business planning period. Based on the reporting unit's
        discounted forecast cashflows, the Company recorded a $25 million
        goodwill impairment charge.

        In addition, during the second quarter of 2009, after failing to
        reach a favourable labour agreement at a powertrain facility in
        Syracuse, New York, the Company decided to wind down these
        operations. Given the significance of the facility's cashflows in
        relation to the reporting unit, management determined that it was
        more likely than not that goodwill at the Powertrain North America
        reporting unit could potentially be impaired. Therefore, the Company
        recorded a $75 million goodwill impairment charge.

        The goodwill impairment charges were calculated by determining the
        implied fair value of goodwill in the same manner as if it had
        acquired the Powertrain and CTS reporting units as at June 30, 2009
        and December 31, 2009, respectively.

        During the fourth quarter of 2009, the Company recorded long-lived
        asset impairment charges of $13 million ($11 million after tax)
        related to fixed assets at a die casting facility in Canada and an
        anticipated under recovery of capitalized tooling costs at a stamping
        facility in the United States due to significantly lower volumes on
        certain SUV programs.

        During the second quarter of 2009, the Company recorded restructuring
        costs of $6 million in cost of goods sold ($6 million after tax)
        related to the planned closure of a powertrain facility in Syracuse,
        New York, substantially all of which remains to be paid subsequent
        to 2010.

        (b) Europe

        For the year ended December 31, 2010

        During the fourth quarter of 2010, the Company recorded long-lived
        asset impairment charges of $16 million ($16 million after tax)
        related to an interiors systems facility in Germany.

        For the year ended December 31, 2009

        During 2009, the Company recorded long-lived assets impairment
        charges of $70 million ($70 million after tax) related to its CTS and
        exterior systems operations in Germany.

        At the Company's CTS operations, long-lived asset impairment charges
        of $59 million ($59 million after tax) were recorded related to fixed
        and intangible assets. The impairment charge was calculated based on
        the CTS' discounted forecast cashflows and was necessary primarily as
        a result of: (i) a dramatic reduction in the market for soft tops,
        hard tops and modular retractable hard tops; and (ii) historical
        losses that are projected to continue throughout the Company's
        business planning period.

        At its exteriors operations, the Company recorded an $11 million
        ($11 million after tax) asset impairment charge related to specific
        under-utilized assets in Germany.

        During 2009, the Company recorded restructuring and rationalization
        costs of $17 million in cost of goods sold and $3 million in selling,
        general and administrative expense ($20 million after tax). The
        charges consist primarily of severance and other termination benefits
        related to the closure of powertrain and interior systems facilities
        in Germany.

    5.  ACQUISITIONS

        In December 2010, Magna completed the following acquisitions:

        (a) Resil Minas, a supplier of seat frames and stampings. The
            acquired business is primarily located in Brazil with sales to
            various customers, including Fiat, Ford, General Motors,
            Volkswagen, IVECO and PSA.

        (b) Pabsa S.A., a supplier of complete seats, foam products, trim
            covers and seat structures. The acquired business has three
            production facilities in Argentina.

        (c) Erhard & Sohne GmbH, a manufacturer of fuel tanks for commercial
            vehicles and other specialty tanks. The acquired business is
            located in Germany and has sales to various customers including
            MAN, Daimler and Scania.

        The total consideration for these acquisitions and certain other
        acquisitions was $120 million, consisting of $106 million paid in
        cash (net of cash acquired) and $14 million of assumed debt.

        The net effect of the acquisitions on the Company's 2010 consolidated
        balance sheet was a decrease in non-cash working capital of
        $45 million, and increases in fixed assets of $69 million, goodwill
        of $68 million, future tax assets of $4 million, other assets of
        $40 million, other long-term liabilities of $5 million, future tax
        liabilities of $8 million and minority interest of $3 million.

        The purchase price allocations for these acquisitions are preliminary
        and adjustments to the allocations may occur as a result of obtaining
        more information regarding asset valuations.

        (a) During the three months ended June 30, 2009, the Company amended
            its Retiree Premium Reimbursement Plan in Canada and the United
            States, such that most employees retiring on or after August 1,
            2009 would no longer participate in the plan. The amendment
            reduced service costs and retirement medical benefit expense in
            2009 and future years. As a result of amending the plan, a
            curtailment gain of $26 million was recorded in cost of goods
            sold in the three-month period ended June 30, 2009.

    (i)    The exercise price noted above represents the weighted average
           exercise price in Canadian dollars.

    (ii)   On November 8, 2010, options to acquire 386,666 Common Shares were
           surrendered for cancellation in exchange for payment of the
           in-the-money value of such options on such date. The aggregate
           in-the-money value of the options surrendered was $8 million and
           was charged to contributed surplus (note 11).

           On August 19, 2010, options to acquire 243,000 Common Shares were
           surrendered for cancellation in exchange for payment of the
           in-the-money value of such options on such date. The aggregate
           in-the-money value of the options surrendered was $4 million and
           was charged to contributed surplus (note 11).

           On August 12, 2009, following approval by the Company's Corporate
           Governance and Compensation Committee and in accordance with the
           Amended and Restated Incentive Stock Option Plan, the Company
           granted SARs to certain executives in respect of 383,400
           previously granted and unexercised stock options.

           On August 14, 2009, 332,822 SARs were exercised and an equal
           number of previously granted and unexercised stock options were
           surrendered and cancelled. On exercise of the SARs, the executives
           received, in aggregate, cash of $1 million, representing an amount
           equal to the difference between the aggregate fair market value of
           the shares covered by the surrendered options and the aggregate
           exercise price of such surrendered options.

        The weighted average assumptions used in measuring the fair value of
        stock options granted and/or modified and the compensation expense
        recorded in selling, general and administrative expenses are as
        follows:

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

            During 2010, option agreements with three departing employees
            were modified resulting in a charge to compensation expense in
            the third and fourth quarters of 2010 of $16 million and
            $4 million, respectively. This charge represents the fair value
            of the options at the date of modification net of originally
            measured compensation cost which has been reversed.

            Compensation expense recorded in selling, general and
            administrative expenses during the three months and year ended
            December 31, 2010 was $10 million (2009 - $2 million), and
            $43 million (2009 - $4 million), respectively.

            numbers) and has been restated to reflect the effect of the Stock

            including renaming the Class A Subordinate Voting Shares as

                 accepted the Company's Notice of Intention to Make a Normal
                 Course Issuer Bid relating to the purchase of up to

                 under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

                 During the three months ended December 31, 2010, the Company

                 normal course issuer bid for cash consideration of
                 $23 million. The excess of cash paid over the book value of
                 the Common Shares repurchased of $13 million was charged to
                 retained earnings.

        (c) The following table presents the maximum number of shares that
            would be outstanding if all the dilutive instruments outstanding

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

            (i)  Options to purchase Common 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.

    13. CAPITAL DISCLOSURES

        The Company manages capital in order to ensure the Company 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 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 consolidated balance sheets. Total capitalization
        includes debt, minority interest and all components of shareholders'
        equity.

        The Company's capitalization and debt to total capitalization is as
        follows:

        (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, accounts receivable, bank indebtedness
            and accounts payable.

            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 December 31, 2010, the Company held Canadian third party
            asset-backed commercial paper ("ABCP") with a face value of
            Cdn$127 million (December 31, 2009 - Cdn$134 million). The
            carrying value and estimated fair value of this investment was
            Cdn$84 million (December 31, 2009 - Cdn$88 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.

            At December 31, 2010, the Company held equity investments in
            publicly traded companies. The carrying value and fair value of
            these investments was $19 million, which was based on the closing
            share price of the investments on December 31, 2010.

            Term debt

            The Company's term debt includes $25 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, long-term receivables, 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 consist 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 derivative
            instruments. 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. For the three months and
            year ended December 31, 2010, sales to the Company's six largest
            customers represented 85% and 81% of the Company's total sales,
            respectively, 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 December 31, 2010, 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 term debt instruments as the interest rates on these
            instruments are fixed.

    15. SEGMENTED INFORMATION

        In conjunction with the completion of the Arrangement, the Company's
        E-Car Systems partnership is managed separately from the Company's
        other operations which continue to be segmented on a geographic basis
        between North America, Europe, and Rest of World. Consistent with the
        above, the Company's internal financial reporting has been revised to
        separately segment key internal operating performance measures
        between North America, Europe, Rest of World and E-Car Systems for
        purposes of presentation to the chief operating decision maker to
        assist in the assessment of operating performance, the allocation of
        resources, and the long-term strategic direction and future global
        growth of the Company. The Company's reporting to Magna's Corporate
        Executive Team, Board of Directors and shareholders has also been
        revised accordingly.

    16. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

        On February 8, 2011, the majority shareholder of a company in which
        Magna has a 40% equity interest exercised its option to purchase
        Magna's equity interest. During 2010, Magna recorded equity income of
        $23 million from this investment and as at December 31, 2010 the
        carrying value of Magna's 40% investment was $125 million. Proceeds
        from disposition are projected to exceed Magna's carrying value and
        closing of the transaction is expected to occur during the first half
        of 2011.
