NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Note 1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Basis of Presentation The condensed consolidated financial statements include our accounts and the accounts of our consolidated subsidiaries, including certain special-purpose financing entities utilized in secured financing transactions, which are considered variable interest entities ("VIEs"). All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.
The interim period consolidated financial statements, including the notes thereto, are condensed and do not include all disclosures required by generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") in the United States of America. These interim period condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements that are included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on February 3, 2016 ("Form 10-K"). Except as otherwise specified, dollar amounts presented within tables are stated in millions.
The condensed consolidated financial statements at September 30, 2016, and for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, are unaudited and, in management’s opinion, include all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the results for such interim periods. The results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results for a full year.
Segment Information We are the wholly-owned captive finance subsidiary of General Motors Company ("GM"). We offer substantially similar products and services throughout many different regions, subject to local regulations and market conditions. We evaluate our business in two operating segments. The North America Segment includes our operations in the U.S. and Canada. The International Segment includes our operations in all other countries.
Recently Issued Accounting Standards Not Yet Adopted In February 2016 the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standard Update 2016-02, “Leases” (ASU 2016-02), which requires the lessee to recognize most leases on the balance sheet thereby resulting in the recognition of lease assets and liabilities for those leases currently classified as operating leases. The accounting for lessors is largely unchanged. ASU 2016-02 is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018 with early adoption permitted. We are currently assessing the impact the adoption of ASU 2016-02 will have on our consolidated financial statements.
In June 2016 the FASB issued Accounting Standard Update 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments (ASU 2016-13), which requires entities to use a current expected credit loss ("CECL") model which is a new impairment model based on expected losses rather than incurred losses. Under this model an entity would recognize an impairment allowance equal to its current estimate of all contractual cash flows that the entity does not expect to collect from financial assets measured at amortized cost. The entity's estimate would consider relevant information about past events, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts, which will result in recognition of lifetime expected credit losses upon loan origination. ASU 2016-13 is effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019, with early adoption permitted for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018. We are currently assessing the impact the adoption of ASU 2016-13 will have on our consolidated financial statements.
Note 2. Related Party Transactions
We offer loan and lease finance products through GM-franchised dealers to customers purchasing new and certain used vehicles manufactured by GM and make commercial loans directly to GM-franchised dealers and their affiliates. We also offer commercial loans to dealers that are consolidated by GM and those balances are included in our finance receivables, net.
Under subvention programs, GM makes cash payments to us for offering incentivized rates and structures on retail loan and lease finance products. In addition, GM makes payments to us to cover certain interest payments on commercial loans. We also provide funding under lines of credit to GM, which are included in our net funding of commercial finance receivables on the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows.

_________________
(a)
Included in finance receivables, net.
(b)
Included in related party receivables.
(c)
Included in related party receivables. We received subvention payments from GM of $1.0 billion and $1.2 billion for the three months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 and $3.2 billion and $2.5 billion for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015.
(d)
Included in related party payables.
(e)
Included in unsecured debt.
(f)
Included in finance charge income.
(g)
Included as a reduction to leased vehicle expenses.
Under our support agreement with GM (the “Support Agreement”), if our earning assets leverage ratio at the end of any calendar quarter exceeds the applicable threshold set in the Support Agreement, we may require GM to provide funding sufficient to bring our earning assets leverage ratio to within the applicable threshold. In determining our earning assets leverage ratio (net earning assets divided by adjusted equity) under the Support Agreement, net earning assets means our finance receivables, net, plus leased vehicles, net, and adjusted equity means our equity, net of goodwill and inclusive of outstanding junior subordinated debt, as each may be adjusted for derivative accounting from time to time. 
Additionally, the Support Agreement provides that GM will own all of our outstanding voting shares as long as we have any unsecured debt securities outstanding and that GM will use its commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that we will continue to be designated as a subsidiary borrower of up to $4.0 billion under GM’s corporate revolving credit facilities, which were amended in May 2016. These amendments increased GM's borrowing capacity on its corporate revolving credit facilities from $12.5 billion to $14.5 billion. We have the ability to borrow up to $1.0 billion under GM's three-year, $4.0 billion unsecured revolving credit facility and $3.0 billion under GM's five-year, $10.5 billion unsecured revolving credit facility, subject to available capacity. GM also agreed to certain provisions in the Support Agreement intended to ensure that we maintain adequate access to liquidity. Pursuant to these provisions, GM provided us with a $1.0 billion junior subordinated unsecured intercompany revolving credit facility (the "Junior Subordinated Revolving Credit Facility").
Since October 1, 2010, we have been included in GM's consolidated U.S. federal income tax returns. For taxable income we recognize in any period beginning on or after October 1, 2010, we are obligated to pay GM for our share of the consolidated U.S. federal and certain state tax liabilities. Amounts owed to GM for income taxes are accrued and recorded as a related party payable.  At September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, there are no related party taxes payable to GM due to our taxable loss position.

________________
(a) Includes $1.3 billion and $1.1 billion of direct-financing leases at September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015.
(b) Net of unearned income, unamortized premiums and discounts, and deferred fees and costs of $200 million and $179 million at September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015.

We estimate the fair value of retail finance receivables using observable and unobservable Level 3 inputs within a cash flow model. The inputs reflect assumptions regarding expected prepayments, deferrals, delinquencies, recoveries and charge-offs of the loans within the portfolio. The cash flow model produces an estimated amortization schedule of the finance receivables. The projected cash flows are then discounted to derive the fair value of the portfolio. Macroeconomic factors could affect the credit performance of the portfolio and, therefore, could potentially affect the assumptions used in our cash flow model. A substantial majority of our commercial finance receivables have variable interest rates and maturities of one year or less. Therefore, the carrying amount, a Level 2 input, is considered to be a reasonable estimate of fair value.

Retail Credit Quality We use proprietary scoring systems in the underwriting process that measure the credit quality of the receivables using several factors, such as credit bureau information, consumer credit risk scores (e.g. FICO score), and contract characteristics. We also consider other factors, such as employment history, financial stability and capacity to pay. At the time of loan origination, substantially all of our international customers have the equivalent of prime credit scores. In the North America Segment, while we historically focused on consumers with lower than prime credit scores, we have expanded our prime lending programs. A summary of the credit risk profile by FICO score band or equivalent scores, determined at origination, of the retail finance receivables in the North America Segment is as follows:

In addition, we review the credit quality of our retail finance receivables based on customer payment activity. A retail account is considered delinquent if a substantial portion of a scheduled payment has not been received by the date such payment was contractually due. Retail finance receivables are collateralized by vehicle titles and, subject to local laws, we generally have the right to repossess the vehicle in the event the customer defaults on the payment terms of the contract.
The following is a consolidated summary of the contractual amounts of retail finance receivables, which is not significantly different than recorded investment, that are (i) more than 30 days delinquent, but not yet in repossession, and (ii) in repossession, but not yet charged off:

The accrual of finance charge income has been suspended on $816 million and $778 million of retail finance receivables (based on contractual amount due) at September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015.
Impaired Retail Finance Receivables - TDRs Retail finance receivables that become classified as troubled debt restructurings ("TDRs") are separately assessed for impairment. A specific allowance is estimated based on the present value of the expected future cash flows of the receivable discounted at the loan's original effective interest rate. Accounts that become classified as TDRs because of a payment deferral accrue interest at the contractual rate and an additional fee is collected (where permitted) at each time of deferral and recorded as a reduction of accrued interest. No interest or fees are forgiven on a payment deferral to a customer; therefore, there are no additional financial effects of deferred loans becoming classified as TDRs. Accounts in the U.S. in Chapter 13 bankruptcy would have already been placed on non-accrual; therefore, there are no additional financial effects from these loans becoming classified as TDRs. Finance charge income from loans classified as TDRs is accounted for in the same manner as other accruing loans. Cash collections on these loans are allocated according to the same payment hierarchy methodology applied to loans that are not classified as TDRs.

Commercial Credit Quality We extend wholesale credit to dealers primarily in the form of approved lines of credit to purchase new vehicles as well as used vehicles. Each commercial lending request is evaluated, taking into consideration the borrower's financial condition and the underlying collateral for the loan. We use proprietary models to assign each dealer a risk rating. These models use historical performance data to identify key factors about a dealer that we consider significant in predicting a dealer's ability to meet its financial obligations. We also consider numerous other financial and qualitative factors including, but not limited to, capitalization and leverage, liquidity and cash flow, profitability and credit history. 
We regularly review our models to confirm the continued business significance and statistical predictability of the factors and update the models to incorporate new factors or other information that improves statistical predictability. In addition, we verify the existence of the assets collateralizing the receivables by physical audits of vehicle inventories, which are performed with increased frequency for higher risk (i.e., Groups III, IV, V and VI) dealers. We perform a credit review of each dealer at least annually and adjust the dealer's risk rating, if necessary. Dealers in Group VI are subject to additional funding restrictions including suspension of lines of credit and liquidation of assets.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - (Continued)


Performance of our commercial finance receivables is evaluated based on our internal dealer risk rating analysis, as payment for wholesale receivables is generally not required until the dealer has sold or leased the vehicle inventory. All receivables from the same dealer customer share the same risk rating. A summary of the credit risk profile by dealer risk rating of the commercial finance receivables is as follows:

We use the equity method to account for our equity interest in SAIC-GMAC Automotive Finance Company Limited ("SAIC-GMAC"), a joint venture that conducts auto finance operations in China. The income of SAIC-GMAC is not consolidated into our financial statements; rather, our proportionate share of the earnings is reflected as equity income.

The fair value of our debt measured utilizing Level 2 inputs was based on quoted market prices for identical instruments and if unavailable, quoted market prices of similar instruments. For debt that has terms of one year or less or has been priced within the last six months, the carrying amount or par value is considered to be a reasonable estimate of fair value. The fair value of our debt measured utilizing Level 3 inputs was based on the discounted future net cash flows expected to be settled using current risk-adjusted rates.
Secured Debt Most of the secured debt was issued by variable interest entities, as further discussed in Note 8 - "Variable Interest Entities." This debt is repayable only from proceeds related to the underlying pledged finance receivables and leasing related assets.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2016, we entered into new credit facilities or renewed credit facilities with a total additional net borrowing capacity of $3.1 billion, and we issued securitization notes payable of $11.8 billion.
Unsecured Debt In March 2016, our top-tier holding company issued $2.75 billion in senior notes comprised of $1.5 billion of 4.20% notes due in March 2021 and $1.25 billion of 5.25% notes due in March 2026. All of these notes are guaranteed solely by AmeriCredit Financial Services, Inc. ("AFSI").
In May 2016, our top-tier holding company issued $3.0 billion in senior notes comprised of $1.4 billion of 2.40% notes due in May 2019, $1.2 billion of 3.70% notes due in May 2023 and $400 million of floating rate notes due in May 2019. All of these notes are guaranteed solely by AFSI.
Also in May 2016, one of our European subsidiaries issued €500 million of 1.168% notes under our Euro medium term notes program. These notes are due in May 2020 and are guaranteed by our top-tier holding company and AFSI.
In July 2016, our top-tier holding company issued $2.0 billion of 3.20% senior notes due in July 2021. These notes are guaranteed solely by AFSI.
In September 2016, our top-tier holding company issued €750 million of 0.955% notes under our Euro medium term notes program. These notes are due in September 2023 and are guaranteed solely by AFSI.
Subsequent to September 30, 2016, our top-tier holding company issued $1.75 billion in senior notes comprised of $750 million of 2.35% notes due in October 2019, $750 million of 4.00% notes due in October 2026 and $250 million of floating rate notes due in October 2019.

Compliance with Debt Covenants Several of our loan facilities, including our revolving credit facilities, require compliance with certain financial and operational covenants as well as regular reporting to lenders, including providing certain subsidiary financial statements. Certain of our secured debt agreements also contain various covenants, including maintaining portfolio performance ratios as well as limits on deferment levels. Our unsecured senior notes contain covenants including limitations on our ability to incur certain liens. At September 30, 2016, we were in compliance with these debt covenants.

These amounts are related to securitization and credit facilities held by consolidated VIEs. Our continuing involvement with these VIEs consists of servicing assets held by the entities and holding residual interests in the entities. We have determined that we are the primary beneficiary of each VIE because we hold both (i) the power to direct the activities of the VIEs that most significantly impact the VIEs' economic performance and (ii) the obligation to absorb losses from and the right to receive benefits of the VIEs that could potentially be significant to the VIEs. We are not required, and do not currently intend, to provide any additional financial support to these VIEs. Liabilities recognized as a result of consolidating these entities generally do not represent claims against us or our other subsidiaries and assets recognized generally are for the benefit of these entities operations and cannot be used to satisfy our or our subsidiaries obligations.
Other VIEs We consolidate certain operating entities that provide auto finance and financial services, which we do not control through a majority voting interest. We manage these entities and maintain a controlling financial interest in them and are exposed to the risks of ownership through contractual arrangements. The majority voting interests in these entities are indirectly wholly-owned by our parent, GM. The amounts presented below are stated prior to intercompany eliminations and include amounts related to securitizations and credit facilities held by consolidated VIEs.

Other transfers of finance receivables Under certain debt agreements, we transfer finance receivables to entities which we do not control through majority voting interest or through contractual arrangements. These transfers do not meet the criteria to be considered sales under U.S. GAAP; therefore, the finance receivables and the related debt are included in our consolidated financial statements, similar to the treatment of finance receivables and related debt of our consolidated VIEs. Any collections received on the transferred receivables are available only for the repayment of the related debt. At September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, $1.2 billion and $1.5 billion in finance receivables had been transferred in secured funding arrangements to third-party banks, to which $1.1 billion and $1.4 billion in secured debt was outstanding.

Note 10. Commitments and Contingencies
Guarantees of Indebtedness The payments of principal and interest on senior notes issued by our top-tier holding company, our primary Canadian operating subsidiary and a European subsidiary are guaranteed by our primary U.S. operating subsidiary, AFSI. At September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the par value of these senior notes was $27.3 billion and $19.1 billion. See Note 15 - "Guarantor Condensed Consolidating Financial Statements" for further discussion.
Legal Proceedings As a retail finance company, we are subject to various customer claims and litigation seeking damages and statutory penalties, based upon, among other things, usury, disclosure inaccuracies, wrongful repossession, violations of bankruptcy stay provisions, certificate of title disputes, fraud, breach of contract and discriminatory treatment of credit applicants. Some

GENERAL MOTORS FINANCIAL COMPANY, INC.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - (Continued)


litigation against us could take the form of class action complaints by customers and certain legal actions include claims for substantial compensatory and/or punitive damages or claims for indeterminate amounts of damages. We establish reserves for legal claims when payments associated with the claims become probable and the payments can be reasonably estimated. Given the inherent difficulty of predicting the outcome of litigation and regulatory matters, it is generally very difficult to predict what the eventual outcome will be, and when the matter will be resolved. The actual costs of resolving legal claims may be higher or lower than any amounts reserved for the claims. At September 30, 2016, we estimated our reasonably possible legal exposure for unfavorable outcomes of up to $96 million and have accrued $35 million.
In July 2014, we were served with a subpoena by the U.S. Department of Justice directing us to produce certain documents relating to our and our subsidiaries’ and affiliates’ origination and securitization of sub-prime automobile loans since 2007 in connection with an investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice in contemplation of a civil proceeding for potential violations of the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act of 1989. Among other matters, the subpoena requests information relating to the underwriting criteria used to originate these automobile loans and the representations and warranties relating to those underwriting criteria that were made in connection with the securitization of the automobile loans. We have subsequently been served with additional investigative subpoenas to produce documents from state attorneys general and other governmental offices relating to our retail auto loan business and securitization of auto loans. These investigations are ongoing and could in the future result in the imposition of damages, fines or civil or criminal claims and/or penalties. No assurance can be given that the ultimate outcome of the investigations or any resulting proceedings would not materially and adversely affect us or any of our subsidiaries and affiliates.
Other Administrative Tax Matters We accrue non-income tax liabilities for contingencies when management believes that a loss is probable and the amounts can be reasonably estimated, while contingent gains are recognized only when realized. In the event any losses are sustained in excess of accruals, they will be charged against income at that time.
In evaluating indirect tax matters, we take into consideration factors such as our historical experience with matters of similar nature, specific facts and circumstances, and the likelihood of prevailing. We reevaluate and update our accruals as matters progress over time. Where there is a reasonable possibility that losses exceeding amounts already recognized may be incurred, our estimate of the additional range of loss is up to $44 million.
Note 11. Income Taxes

For interim income tax reporting we estimate our annual effective tax rate and apply it to our year-to-date ordinary income. Tax jurisdictions with a projected or year-to-date loss for which a tax benefit cannot be realized are excluded from the annualized effective tax rate. The tax effects of unusual or infrequently occurring items, including changes in judgment about valuation allowances and effects of changes in tax laws or rates, are reported in the interim period in which they occur.

In the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, income tax expense of $81 million and $219 million primarily resulted from tax expense attributable to entities included in our effective rate calculation. In the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, income tax expense of $52 million and $155 million primarily resulted from tax expense attributable to entities included in our effective tax rate calculation. The increase in tax expense is due primarily to differences in U.S. taxation on foreign earnings.

We are included in GM’s consolidated U.S. federal income tax return and for certain states’ income tax returns. Net operating losses and certain tax credits generated by us have been utilized by GM; however, income tax expense and deferred tax balances are presented in these financial statements as if we filed our own tax returns in each jurisdiction.
Note 12. Segment Reporting

We offer substantially similar products and services throughout many different regions, subject to local regulations and market conditions. We evaluate our business in two operating segments: the North America Segment (consisting of operations in the U.S. and Canada) and the International Segment (consisting of operations in all other countries). Our chief operating decision maker evaluates the operating results and performance of our business based on these operating segments. The management of each segment is responsible for executing our strategies.

Note 14. Regulatory Capital
We are required to comply with a wide variety of laws and regulations. Our International Segment includes the operations of certain stand-alone entities that operate in local markets as either banks or regulated finance companies that are subject to regulatory restrictions. These regulatory restrictions, among other things, require that these entities meet certain minimum capital requirements and may restrict dividend distributions and ownership of certain assets. We were in compliance with all regulatory capital requirements as most recently reported.
Total assets of our regulated international banks and finance companies were approximately $12.6 billion and $11.1 billion at September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015.

Note 15. Guarantor Condensed Consolidating Financial Statements
The payment of principal and interest on senior notes issued by our top-tier holding company is currently guaranteed solely by AFSI (the "Guarantor") and none of our other subsidiaries (the "Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries"). The Guarantor is a 100% owned consolidated subsidiary and is unconditionally liable for the obligations represented by the senior notes.  The Guarantor’s guarantee may be released only upon customary circumstances, the terms of which vary by issuance.  Customary circumstances include the sale or disposition of all of the Guarantor’s assets or capital stock, the achievement of investment grade rating of the senior notes and legal or covenant defeasance.
The condensed consolidating financial statements present consolidating financial data for (i) General Motors Financial Company, Inc. (on a parent-only basis), (ii) the Guarantor, (iii) the combined Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries and (iv) the parent company and our subsidiaries on a consolidated basis at September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, and for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 (after the elimination of intercompany balances and transactions).
Investments in subsidiaries are accounted for by the parent company using the equity method for purposes of this presentation. Results of operations of subsidiaries are therefore reflected in the parent company's investment accounts and earnings. The principal elimination entries set forth below eliminate investments in subsidiaries and intercompany balances and transactions.
We determined that a revision was required to correct the classification of certain intercompany amounts between General Motors Financial Company, Inc. and Guarantor and Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries that were previously being presented net within the change in the due from/due to affiliates line item in the condensed consolidating balance sheet in the financing activities section of the condensed consolidating statements of cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. As a result, correcting adjustments have been made from what was previously reported to (1) reclassify $6.1 billion of the net change in the due from affiliates for General Motors Financial Company, Inc. within the condensed consolidating statements of cash flows to the investing activities section; and (2) reclassify $3.9 billion of the net change in the due from affiliates for the Guarantor within the condensed consolidating statements of cash flows to the investing activities section. In addition, reclassifications have been made solely within the investing activities section of the condensed consolidating statements of cash flows to separately present cash flow activities related to repurchases by the Guarantor of receivables that had previously been transferred to Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries of $945 million. These adjustments had no effect on the condensed consolidated financial statements at or for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015.
