1.
GENERAL
Unless the context requires otherwise, the terms “Owens Corning,” “Company,” “we” and “our” in this report refer to Owens Corning, a Delaware corporation, and its subsidiaries.
The Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report are unaudited, pursuant to certain rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and include, in the opinion of the Company, adjustments necessary for a fair statement of the results for the periods indicated, which, however, are not necessarily indicative of results which may be expected for the full year. The December 31, 2013, balance sheet data was derived from audited financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (U.S.). In connection with the Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes included in this report, reference is made to the Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes contained in the Company’s 2013 annual report on Form 10-K. Certain reclassifications have been made to the periods presented for 2013 to conform to the classifications used in the periods presented for 2014.

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company recorded additional net pre-tax income of $7 million ($5 million after tax expense) and net pre-tax expense of $1 million ($1 million after tax income), respectively, for the correction of errors related to prior periods. The effect was not material to the current or any previously issued financial statements and primarily resulted from the improper election of the normal purchases normal sales ("NPNS") derivative scope exception related to a fixed quantity energy contract in Brazil that was entered into on December 18, 2013. The contract contained an annual inflation index price adjustment that was not clearly and closely related to the underlying commodity being purchased and thus disqualified the contract from the NPNS exception. The total net unrealized fair market value gains related to the contract would have been recorded in Other (income) expenses, net on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings and the total historical impact was $(1) million, $(8) million, and $2 million for each of the three months ended December 31, 2013, March 31, 2014, and June 30, 2014, respectively.
In the second quarter of 2014, the Company determined that cash flows from operating activities and cash flows used in financing activities were each overstated by $5 million and $11 million for the periods ended September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2013, respectively, due to the misclassification of non-cash debt fair value hedge adjustments. The effect of the misclassification was not material to any previously issued financial statements. The Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 has been revised to reduce cash flows from operating activities and cash flows used in financing activities by $5 million. Cash flow information for the period ended December 31, 2013 will be revised the next time comparative Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows are filed.

DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
The Company is exposed to, among other risks, the impact of changes in commodity prices, foreign currency exchange rates, and interest rates in the normal course of business. The Company’s risk management program is designed to manage the exposure and volatility arising from these risks, and utilizes derivative financial instruments to offset a portion of these risks. The Company uses derivative financial instruments only to the extent necessary to hedge identified business risks, and does not enter into such transactions for trading purposes.
The Company generally does not require collateral or other security with counterparties to these financial instruments and is therefore subject to credit risk in the event of nonperformance; however, the Company monitors credit risk and currently does not anticipate nonperformance by other parties. Contracts with counterparties generally contain right of offset provisions. These provisions effectively reduce the Company’s exposure to credit risk in situations where the Company has gain and loss positions outstanding with a single counterparty. It is the Company’s policy to offset on the Consolidated Balance Sheets the amounts recognized for derivative instruments with any cash collateral arising from derivative instruments executed with the same counterparty under a master netting agreement. As of September 30, 2014, and December 31, 2013, the Company did not have any amounts on deposit with any of its counterparties, nor did any of its counterparties have any amounts on deposit with the Company.
The following table presents the fair value of derivatives and hedging instruments and the respective location on the Consolidated Balance Sheets (in millions):

(a)
Losses related to foreign currency derivatives were substantially offset by net revaluation impacts on foreign denominated balance sheet exposures, which were also recorded in other (income) expenses, net.
Cash Flow Hedges
The Company uses forward and swap contracts, which qualify as cash flow hedges, to manage forecasted exposure to changes in foreign currency rates and commodity prices. The effective portion of the change in the fair value of cash flow hedges is deferred in accumulated OCI and is subsequently recognized in Cost of Sales on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings for commodity hedges, when the hedged item impacts earnings. Changes in the fair value of derivative assets and liabilities designated as hedging instruments are shown in Other within operating activities on the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. Any portion of the change in fair value of derivatives designated as hedging instruments that is determined to be ineffective is recorded in Other (income) expenses, net on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings.
The Company currently has natural gas derivatives designated as hedging instruments that mature within 15 months. The Company’s policy for natural gas exposures is to hedge up to 75% of its total forecasted exposures for the next two months, up to 50% of its total forecasted exposures for the following four months, and lesser amounts for the remaining periods. Based on market conditions, approved variation from the standard policy may occur. The Company performs an analysis for effectiveness of its derivatives designated as hedging instruments at the end of each quarter based on the terms of the contract and the underlying item being hedged.
As of September 30, 2014, $1 million of losses included in accumulated OCI on the Consolidated Balance Sheets relate to contracts that are expected to impact earnings during the next 12 months. Transactions and events that are expected to occur over the next 12 months that will necessitate recognizing these deferred amounts include the recognition of the hedged item through earnings.

4. DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS (continued)

Fair Value Hedges
The Company manages its interest rate exposure by balancing the mixture of its fixed and variable rate instruments through interest rate swaps. The swaps are carried at fair value and recorded as other assets or liabilities, with the offset to long-term debt on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. Changes in the fair value of these swaps and that of the related debt are recorded in Interest expense, net on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings.
Other Derivatives
The Company uses forward currency exchange contracts to manage existing exposures to foreign exchange risk related to assets and liabilities recorded on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. Gains and losses resulting from the changes in fair value of these instruments are recorded in Other (income) expenses, net on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings.
As discussed in Note 1, the Company currently has fixed quantity energy contracts in Brazil that contain an annual inflation index price adjustment that is not clearly and closely related to the underlying commodity being purchased and thus are accounted for as trading derivatives. Gains and losses resulting from the changes in fair value of these contracts are recorded in Other (income) expenses, net on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings.

Other Intangible Assets
The Company expects the ongoing amortization expense for amortizable intangible assets to be approximately $22 million in each of the next five fiscal years. The Company’s future cash flows are not materially impacted by its ability to extend or renew agreements related to our amortizable intangible assets.
Goodwill
The Company tests goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets for impairment during the fourth quarter of each year, or more frequently should circumstances change or events occur that would more likely than not reduce the fair value of a reporting unit below its carrying amount. No testing was deemed necessary in the third quarter of 2014.

ACQUISITIONS

During the third quarter of 2014, the Company completed the acquisition of Transaco, a building materials distribution company in Chile.

The Company provided total consideration of $12 million comprised of cash payments of $7 million on September 4, 2014 and a put/call option with a strike price based on a 2016 EBITDA multiple exercisable in 2017. The fair value of the put/call option is $5 million and has been recorded in other liabilities on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. The acquisition resulted in the recognition of $4 million in intangible assets and $2 million in goodwill. The pro-forma effect of this acquisition on revenues and earnings was not material to the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014.


8.
DIVESTITURES

In the third quarter of 2014, the Company finalized the sale of its Building Materials European Stone business to an unrelated third party. As a result of this sale, the Company received $2 million in compensation and year to date has recorded a pre-tax charge of $20 million in Other (income) expenses, net on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings.

In the second quarter of 2014, the Company received final payment of $44 million related to the previously announced fourth quarter 2010 sale of our Masonry Products business to Boral Industries Ltd (“Boral”), an unrelated third party.

On September 13, 2013, the Company signed an agreement to sell its Composites glass reinforcements facility in Hangzhou, People's Republic of China, for total compensation of approximately $70 million to the Hangzhou Municipal Land Reservation Center and the Development and Construction Management Office of Taoyuan New Zone of Gongshu District in Hangzhou (“Hangzhou Government”), both of which are unrelated third party government entities. In the first quarter of 2014, the Company returned the land to the Hangzhou Government and recorded a net gain of $45 million, which is recorded in Other (income) expenses, net on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings for the nine month period ended September 30, 2014. The balance of the compensation, approximately $14 million, has been recorded in Other current assets on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. Final payment is due upon the Hangzhou government’s completion of demolition activities, currently forecast for the fourth quarter of 2014.


9.    ASSETS HELD FOR SALE
In the third quarter of 2014, the Company closed its Alcala, Spain facility as announced in our 2012 Composites cost reduction actions. The assets held for sale consisted of $9 million of Property, Plant and Equipment. There were no other assets or liabilities held for sale related to these facilities as of September 30, 2014.

COST REDUCTION ACTIONS
2014 Cost Reduction Actions
We took actions in 2014 to reduce costs in our Composites segment. In the third quarter of 2014, these actions related to our decision to not rebuild two sub-scale high cost furnaces that will result in closing a facility in Japan and optimizing a facility in Canada. As a result of these actions, we recognized $16 million in severance charges, $3 million in contract termination charges, and $2 million in other related charges.
In the first quarter of 2014, these actions related to global workforce reductions and the termination of a contract with a utility services provider. In conjunction with these actions, the Company recorded $14 million in charges related to cost reduction actions for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, of which $11 million is related to severance and $3 million is related to contract termination charges. Both items were recorded in the first quarter of 2014 and have been reported in charges related to cost reduction actions on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings.

Senior Notes
The Company issued $600 million of 2022 senior notes on October 17, 2012. The proceeds of these notes were used to refinance $250 million of our 2016 senior notes, $100 million of our 2019 senior notes and pay down our Senior Revolving Credit Facility. Interest on the notes is payable semiannually in arrears on June 15 and December 15 each year, beginning on June 15, 2013.
The Company issued $350 million of 2019 senior notes on June 3, 2009. On October 31, 2006, we issued $650 million of 2016 senior notes and $540 million of 2036 senior notes. The proceeds of these notes were used to pay certain unsecured and administrative claims, finance general working capital needs and for general corporate purposes.
Collectively, the notes above are referred to as the “Senior Notes." The Senior Notes are general unsecured obligations of the Company and rank pari passu with all existing and future senior unsecured indebtedness of the Company.
The Senior Notes are fully and unconditionally guaranteed by each of the Company’s current and future domestic subsidiaries that are a borrower or guarantor under the Company’s Credit Agreement (as defined below). The guarantees are unsecured and rank equally in right of payment with all other existing and future senior unsecured indebtedness of the guarantors. The guarantees are effectively subordinated to existing and future secured debt of the guarantors to the extent of the assets securing that indebtedness.
The Company has the option to redeem all or part of the Senior Notes at any time at a “make whole” redemption price. The Company is subject to certain covenants in connection with the issuance of the Senior Notes that it believes are usual and customary. The Company was in compliance with these covenants as of September 30, 2014.
In the fourth quarter of 2011, the Company terminated interest rate swaps designated to hedge a portion of the 6.5 percent senior notes due 2016. The swaps were carried at fair value and recorded as other assets or liabilities, with a fair value adjustment to long-term debt on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. The fair value adjustment to debt will be amortized through 2016 as a reduction to interest expense in conjunction with the maturity date of the notes.
On June 28, 2013, the Company entered into interest rate swap agreements effective July 1, 2013 to manage its interest rate exposure by swapping $100 million of fixed rate to variable rate exposure designated against our 4.2 percent senior notes due 2022. The swaps are carried at fair value and recorded as other assets or liabilities, with a fair value adjustment to long-term debt on the Consolidated Balance Sheets.

DEBT (continued)

Senior Credit Facility
In November 2013, the Company amended the credit agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) for the $800 million multi-currency senior revolving credit facility (the “Senior Revolving Credit Facility”) to extend the maturity to November 2018 and reduce the letters of credit sublimit to $100 million. The Senior Revolving Credit Facility includes both borrowings and letters of credit. Borrowings under the Senior Revolving Credit Facility may be used for general corporate purposes and working capital. The Company has the discretion to borrow under multiple options, which provide for varying terms and interest rates including the United States prime rate or LIBOR plus a spread.
The Senior Revolving Credit Facility contains various covenants, including a maximum allowed leverage ratio and a minimum required interest expense coverage ratio that the Company believes are usual and customary for a senior unsecured credit agreement. The Company was in compliance with these covenants as of September 30, 2014.
The Company had $4 million of letters of credit outstanding under the Senior Revolving Credit Facility at September 30, 2014.
Receivables Securitization Facility
Included in long-term debt on the Consolidated Balance Sheets are amounts outstanding under a Receivables Purchase Agreement (the “RPA”) that are accounted for as secured borrowings in accordance with ASC 860, "Accounting for Transfers and Servicing." Owens Corning Sales, LLC and Owens Corning Receivables LLC, each a subsidiary of the Company, have a $250 million RPA with certain financial institutions. The RPA was amended in the third quarter of 2013 to extend maturity to July 2016 and reduce the size of the facility to $200 million during the months of November, December, and January each year. At September 30, 2014 the Company utilized the full amount permitted under the terms of the RPA. The Company had $37 million of letters of credit outstanding under the RPA at September 30, 2014.
The RPA contains various covenants, including a maximum allowed leverage ratio and a minimum required interest expense coverage ratio that the Company believes are usual and customary for a securitization facility. The Company was in compliance with these covenants as of September 30, 2014.
Owens Corning Receivables LLC’s sole business consists of the purchase or acceptance through capital contributions of trade receivables and related rights from Owens Corning Sales, LLC and the subsequent retransfer of or granting of a security interest in such trade receivables and related rights to certain purchasers who are party to the RPA. Owens Corning Receivables LLC is a separate legal entity with its own separate creditors who will be entitled, upon its liquidation, to be satisfied out of Owens Corning Receivables LLC’s assets prior to any assets or value in Owens Corning Receivables LLC becoming available to Owens Corning Receivables LLC’s equity holders. The assets of Owens Corning Receivables LLC are not available to pay creditors of the Company or any other affiliates of the Company or Owens Corning Sales, LLC.
Short-Term Debt
At September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, short-term borrowings were $22 million and $1 million, respectively. The short-term borrowings for both periods consisted of various operating lines of credit and working capital facilities. The weighted average interest rate on short-term borrowings was approximately 3.7 percent for September 30, 2014, and 2.2 percent for December 31, 2013.

PENSION PLANS AND OTHER POSTRETIREMENT BENEFITS
Pension Plans
The Company sponsors defined benefit pension plans. Under the plans, pension benefits are based on an employee’s years of service and, for certain categories of employees, qualifying compensation. Company contributions to these pension plans are determined by an independent actuary to meet or exceed minimum funding requirements. In our Non-U.S. plans, the unrecognized cost of any retroactive amendments and actuarial gains and losses are amortized over the average future service period of plan participants expected to receive benefits. In our U.S. plans, the unrecognized cost of any retroactive amendments and actuarial gains and losses are amortized over the average remaining life expectancy of the inactive participants as substantially all of the plan participants are inactive.

14.    CONTINGENT LIABILITIES AND OTHER MATTERS
The Company is involved in various legal proceedings relating to employment, product liability and other matters (collectively, “Proceedings”). The Company regularly reviews the status of such Proceedings with legal counsel. Liabilities for such Proceedings are recorded when it is probable that the liability has been incurred and when the amount of the liability can be reasonably estimated. Liabilities are adjusted when additional information becomes available. Management believes that the amount of any reasonably possible losses in excess of any amounts accrued, if any, with respect to such Proceedings or any other known claim, including the matters described below under the caption Environmental Matters (the “Environmental Matters”) will not be material to the Company’s financial statements. Management believes that the ultimate disposition of the Proceedings and the Environmental Matters will not have a material adverse effect on the Company’s operations or financial condition taken as a whole.
Environmental Matters
We have been deemed by the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) to be a Potentially Responsible Party (“PRP”) with respect to certain sites under the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act. We have also been deemed a PRP under similar state or local laws and in other instances other PRPs have brought suits against us as a PRP for contribution under such federal, state, or local laws. At September 30, 2014, we had environmental remediation liabilities as a PRP at 21 sites where we have a continuing legal obligation to either complete remedial actions or contribute to the completion of remedial actions as part of a group of PRPs. For these sites we estimate a reserve to reflect environmental liabilities that have been asserted or are probable of assertion, in which liabilities are probable and reasonably estimable. At September 30, 2014, our reserve for such liabilities was $4 million.
Kearny, New Jersey Manufacturing Facility
During the week of October 29, 2012, the Company experienced a flood at its Kearny, New Jersey manufacturing facility as a result of Hurricane Sandy. Our Roofing facility returned to full operating capacity in the third quarter of 2013 and we settled our insurance claims in December of 2013. For the three month and nine month periods ended September 30, 2014, the Company incurred an additional $0 million and $6 million, respectively, in losses related to clean-up activities. For the nine month period ended September 30, 2014, $5 million has been reported in Other (income) expenses, net and $1 million has been reported in Cost of Sales on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings. The Company does not anticipate any additional charges to be incurred.

For the three months ended September 30, 2013, the Company incurred $2 million (net of insurance proceeds) in losses related to clean up activities and business interruption, of which $4 million of losses have been reported in Cost of Sales, partially offset by $2 million net gain reported in Other (income) expenses, net on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings. For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Company incurred $16 million (net of insurance proceeds) in losses related to clean up activities and business interruption, of which $26 million of losses have been reported in Cost of Sales, partially offset by a $10 million net gain reported in Other (income) expenses, net on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings.

15.     STOCK COMPENSATION
2013 Stock Plan
On April 18, 2013, the Company’s stockholders approved the Owens Corning 2013 Stock Plan (the “2013 Stock Plan”) which replaced the 2010 Stock Plan. The 2013 Stock Plan authorizes grants of stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock awards, restricted stock units, bonus stock awards and performance stock awards. Under the 2013 Stock Plan, 1.5 million shares of common stock may be granted in addition to the shares of Company common stock that rolled over from the 2010 Stock Plan as of April 18, 2013. Such shares of common stock include shares that were available but not granted, or which were granted but were not issued or delivered due to expiration, termination, cancellation or forfeiture of such awards. There will be no future grants made under the 2010 Stock Plan. At September 30, 2014, the number of shares remaining available under the 2013 Stock Plan for all stock awards was 2.4 million.
Stock Options
The Company has granted stock options under its stockholder approved stock plans. The Company calculates a weighted-average grant-date fair value using a Black-Scholes valuation model for options granted. Compensation expense for options is measured based on the fair market value of the option on the date of grant, and is recognized on a straight-line basis over a four year vesting period. In general, the exercise price of each option awarded was equal to the market price of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant and an option’s maximum term is 10 years. The volatility assumption was based on a benchmark study of our peers prior to 2014. Starting with the options granted in 2014 the volatility was based on the company’s historic volatility.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, 374,500 stock options were granted with a weighted-average grant date fair value of $19.05. Assumptions used in the Company’s Black-Scholes valuation model to estimate the grant date fair value were expected volatility of 50.85%, expected dividends of $0, expected term of 6.25 years and a risk-free interest rate of 1.9%.
During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company recognized expense of $1 million and $4 million respectively, related to the Company’s stock options. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Company recognized expense of $1 million and $4 million respectively, related to the Company’s stock options. As of September 30, 2014, there was $10 million of total unrecognized compensation cost related to stock options. That cost is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 2.71 years. The total aggregate intrinsic value of options outstanding as of September 30, 2014 and 2013 was $10 million and $25 million.

Restricted Stock Awards and Restricted Stock Units
The Company has granted restricted stock awards and restricted stock units (collectively referred to as “restricted stock”) under its stockholder approved stock plans. Compensation expense for restricted stock is measured based on the market price of the stock at date of grant and is recognized on a straight-line basis over the four-year vesting period. Stock restrictions are subject to alternate vesting plans for death, disability, approved early retirement and involuntary termination, over various periods ending in 2019.
During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company recognized expense of $4 million and $13 million respectively, related to the Company’s restricted stock. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Company recognized expense of $4 million and $12 million respectively, related to the Company’s restricted stock. As of September 30, 2014, there was $28 million of total unrecognized compensation cost related to restricted stock. That cost is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 2.65 years. The total fair value of shares vested during the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 was $14 million and $16 million, respectively.
A summary of the status of the Company’s plans that had restricted stock issued as of September 30, 2014, and changes during the nine months ended September 30, 2014, are presented below:

Performance Stock Awards and Performance Stock Units
The Company has granted performance stock awards and performance stock units (collectively referred to as “PSUs”) as a part of its long-term incentive plan. Outstanding grants issued in 2013 forward will be fully settled in stock and outstanding grants issued in 2012 will be settled 50 percent in stock and 50 percent in cash. The amount of the stock and/or cash ultimately distributed is contingent on meeting various company or stockholder return goals.
Compensation expense for PSUs settled in stock is measured based on the grant date fair value and is recognized on a straight-line basis over the vesting period. Compensation expense for PSUs settled in cash is measured based on the fair value at the end of each quarter and is recognized on a straight-line basis over the vesting period. Vesting will be accelerated in the case of death or disability, and awards earned will be paid at the end of the three-year period.
In the first nine months of 2014, the Company granted PSUs that vest after a three-year period based on the Company’s total stockholder return relative to the performance of the companies in the S&P 500 Index for the respective three-year period. The

amount of stock distributed will vary from 0 percent to 200 percent of PSUs awarded depending on the relative stockholder return performance.
During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company recognized expense of $1 and $4 million, respectively related to the Company’s PSUs. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Company recognized a gain of $1 million and an expense of $5 million, respectively, related to PSUs. As of September 30, 2014, there was $12 million of total unrecognized compensation cost related to PSUs. That cost is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 1.83 years.

2013 Employee Stock Purchase Plan
On April 18, 2013, the Company’s stockholders approved the Owens Corning Employee Stock Purchase Plan (“ESPP”). The ESPP is a tax-qualified plan under Section 423 of the Internal Revenue Code. The purchase price of shares purchased under the ESPP is equal to 85% of the lower of the fair market value of shares of Owens Corning common stock at the beginning or ending of the offering period, which is a six-month period ending on May 31 and November 30 of each year. There are 2 million shares available for purchase under the ESPP as of its approval date. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company had expense of $0.4 million and $1 million, respectively. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Company had expense of $0.4 million and $0.6 million, respectively. As of September 30, 2014, there was less than $1 million of total unrecognized compensation cost related to the ESPP.

Basic earnings per share is calculated by dividing earnings attributable to Owens Corning by the weighted-average number of shares of the Company’s common stock outstanding during the period. Outstanding shares consist of issued shares less treasury stock.
On April 25, 2012, the Company announced a new share buy-back program under which the Company is authorized to repurchase up to 10 million shares of the Company’s outstanding common stock (the “2012 Repurchase Program”). The 2012 Repurchase Program is in addition to the share buy-back program announced August 4, 2010 (the “2010 Repurchase Program” and collectively with the 2012 Repurchase Program, the “Repurchase Programs”). The Repurchase Programs authorize the Company to repurchase shares through the open market, in privately negotiated or other transactions. The actual number of shares repurchased will depend on timing, market conditions and other factors and will be at the Company’s discretion. During the three months ended September 30, 2014, no shares were repurchased under the Repurchase Programs. As of September 30, 2014, 7.7 million shares remain available for repurchase under the authorized programs.
For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, the number of shares used in the calculation of diluted earnings per share did not include 1.3 million and 1.0 million, respectively, of options to purchase common stock due to their anti-dilutive effect.
For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, the number of shares used in the calculation of diluted earnings per share did not include 0.2 million non-vested Restricted and Performance shares, 1.0 million and 0.7 million of options to purchase common stock, respectively, 17.5 million common equivalent shares from Series A Warrants or 7.8 million common equivalent shares from Series B Warrants due to their anti-dilutive effect.

17.     FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENT
Items Measured at Fair Value
The Company classifies and discloses assets and liabilities carried at fair value in one of the following three categories:

Level 1: Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2: Observable market based inputs or unobservable inputs that are corroborated by market data.
Level 3: Unobservable inputs that are not corroborated by market data.

Cash equivalents and term deposits are included in cash and cash equivalents on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. The Company measures the value of its natural gas hedge contracts, electricity contracts and foreign currency forward contracts using Level 2 inputs. The fair value of the Company’s natural gas hedges and electricity contracts is determined by a mark to market valuation based on forward curves using observable market prices and the fair value of its foreign currency forward contracts is determined using observable market transactions in over-the-counter markets.

Contingent consideration

In connection with our third quarter 2014 acquisition of Transaco discussed in Note 7, we recorded contingent consideration pertaining to amounts payable to the former owners related to a put/call option that is to be determined based on a multiple of 2016 EBITDA that contains a cap of $7 million and a floor of $4 million. The valuation of contingent consideration uses assumptions we believe would be made by a market participant and has been based on significant inputs not observable in the market. The significant unobservable input used in the fair value measurement of our contingent consideration includes our internal forecast of business performance.

17.     FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENT (continued)


Items Disclosed at Fair Value
Assets held for sale

At September 30, 2014 the Company had nonfinancial assets, principally property, plant and equipment, with a net book value of $11 million which were accounted for at fair value on a nonrecurring basis. These assets were tested for impairment and the Company recognized losses of $3 million in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, primarily in connection with the final closing of our Alcala, Spain facility as announced in our 2012 Composites cost reduction actions. The Company has determined that the fair value measurements of these nonfinancial assets are level 3 in the fair value hierarchy. The valuation of property, plant and equipment uses assumptions we believe would be made by a market participant and has been based on significant inputs not observable in the market. The significant unobservable input used in the fair value measurement of property, plant and equipment includes recent market transactions for similar assets.

Long-term notes receivable
The fair value of the Company’s long-term notes receivable has been calculated using the expected future cash flows discounted at market interest rates. The Company believes that the carrying amounts reasonably approximate the fair values of long-term notes receivable. Long-term notes receivable were $1 million and $6 million as of September 30, 2014, and December 31, 2013, respectively.
Long-term debt
The fair value of the Company’s long-term debt has been calculated based on quoted market prices for the same or similar issues, or on the current rates offered to the Company for debt of the same remaining maturities.
As of September 30, 2014, the Company’s 6.50 percent senior notes due 2016 were trading at approximately 109 percent of par value, the 7.00 percent senior notes due 2036 were trading at approximately 121 percent of par value, the 9.00 percent senior notes due 2019 were trading at approximately 123 percent of par value, and the 4.20 percent senior notes due 2022 were trading at approximately 101 percent of par value. The Company determined that the book value of the remaining long-term debt instruments approximates market value. This approach, using Level 1 inputs and utilizing indicative market rates for a new debt issuance, approximated the fair value of the remaining long-term debt at $372 million.
As of December 31, 2013, the Company’s 6.50 percent senior notes due 2016 were trading at approximately 111 percent of par value, the 7.00 percent senior notes due 2036 were trading at approximately 107 percent of par value, the 9.00 percent senior notes due 2019 were trading at approximately 125 percent of par value, and the 4.20 percent senior notes due 2022 were trading at approximately 96 percent of par value. The Company determined that the book value of the remaining long-term debt instruments approximates market value. This approach, using Level 1 inputs and utilizing indicative market rates for a new debt issuance, approximated the fair value of the remaining long-term debt at $224 million.

18.     INCOME TAXES
Income taxes for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, was an expense of $27 million and $9 million, respectively. For the third quarter and year-to-date 2014, the Company’s effective tax rate was 34 percent and 4 percent, respectively. For the third quarter, the difference between the effective tax rate and the statutory rate of 35 percent is primarily attributable to the tax accounting treatment related to various locations which are currently in a loss position. For the year-to-date period, the difference between the effective tax rate and the statutory rate of 35 percent is primarily attributable to the resolution of an uncertain tax position upon receiving final notification from the IRS that it had completed its audit examination for the taxable years 2008 through 2010 and the reversal of a valuation allowance recorded in prior years against certain European net deferred tax assets which cumulatively totaled $78 million. The remaining differences relate to other discrete adjustments in the quarter and the accounting treatment of various locations which are currently in a loss position in the third quarter 2014.
Income tax expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, was $26 million and $71 million, respectively. For the third quarter and year-to-date 2013, the Company’s effective tax rate was 34 percent and 37 percent, respectively. For both periods, the difference between the effective tax rate and the statutory rate of 35 percent is primarily attributable to various tax planning initiatives and the tax accounting treatment related to various locations which are currently in a loss position.

20.    ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
In July 2013, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standard Update (“ASU”) 2013-11 Income Taxes (Topic 740): "Presentation of an Unrecognized Tax Benefit When a Net Operating Loss Carryforward, a Similar Tax Loss, or a Tax Credit Carryforward Exists." The new guidance is effective for fiscal year and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2013. The update does not have a material impact on the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements and we have prospectively adopted the standard in fiscal year 2014.
In April 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-08, “Reporting Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of Components of an Entity." ASU No. 2014-08 changes the definition of a discontinued operation to include only those disposals of components of an entity that represent a strategic shift that has (or will have) a major effect on an entity’s operations and financial results. ASU No. 2014-08 is effective prospectively for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2014. The Company has early adopted this update in the second quarter of 2014.
In March 2013, the FASB issued ASU No. 2013-05, “Parent’s Accounting for the Cumulative Translation Adjustment upon Derecognition of Certain Subsidiaries or Groups of Assets within a Foreign Entity or of an Investment in a Foreign Entity.” ASU No. 2013-05 clarifies when companies should release the cumulative translation adjustment (CTA) into net income when a parent either sells a part of or all of its investment in a foreign entity or no longer holds a controlling financial interest in a subsidiary or group of assets within a foreign entity. ASU No. 2013-05 is effective prospectively for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2013. The update is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements and we have prospectively adopted the standard in fiscal year 2014.
In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606),” (“ASU 2014-09”). ASU 2014-09 outlines a new, single comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers and supersedes most current revenue recognition guidance, including industry-specific guidance. This new revenue recognition model provides a five-step analysis in determining when and how revenue is recognized. The new model will require revenue recognition to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration a company expects to receive in exchange for those goods or services. The Company is currently assessing the impact that adopting this new accounting guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements and footnote disclosures. ASU 2014-09 is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2016, and early adoption is not permitted. Accordingly, the standard is effective for us on January 1, 2017.
 

21. CONDENSED CONSOLIDATING FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
The following Condensed Consolidating Financial Statements present the financial information required with respect to those entities which guarantee certain of the Company’s debt. The Condensed Consolidating Financial Statements are presented on the equity method. Under this method, the investments in subsidiaries are recorded at cost and adjusted for the Company’s share of the subsidiaries’ cumulative results of operations, capital contributions, distributions and other equity changes. The principal elimination entries eliminate investment in subsidiaries and intercompany balances and transactions.
Guarantor and Nonguarantor Financial Statements
The Senior Notes and the Senior Revolving Credit Facility are guaranteed, fully, unconditionally and jointly and severally, by each of Owens Corning’s current and future 100% owned material domestic subsidiaries that is a borrower or a guarantor under Owens Corning’s Credit Agreement, which permits changes to the named guarantors in certain situations (collectively, the “Guarantor Subsidiaries”). The remaining subsidiaries have not guaranteed the Senior Notes and the Senior Revolving Credit Facility (collectively, the “Nonguarantor Subsidiaries”).
