Accuride Announces Extended Waiver with Lenders and Extended Forbearance with Bondholders

Accuride Corporation (OTCBB: AURD) today reported that it continues to have constructive discussions with key constituents in regards to an expected restructuring transaction. As a result, the Company has entered into a new agreement with each of the holders of its 8 ½ percent Senior Subordinated Notes due 2015 and the lenders under its Fourth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement that effectively extend the term of the previous waiver and forbearance agreements to October 5, subject to certain early termination provisions.

“The extensions offer the Company the additional time we believe is necessary to solidify a restructuring arrangement which addresses our balance sheet issues,” said Bill Lasky, Accuride’s President, CEO, and Chairman of the Board.
