    PART I.


    The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (the “Company”) is an Ohio corporation organized in 1898. Its principal offices are located at 200 Innovation Way, Akron, Ohio 44316- 0001. Its telephone number is (330) 796-2121. The terms “Goodyear,” “Company” and “we,” “us” or “our” wherever used herein refer to the Company together with all of its consolidated U.S. and foreign subsidiary companies, unless the context indicates to the contrary.

    We are one of the world’s leading manufacturers of tires, engaging in operations in most regions of the world. In 2013 , our net sales were $19.5 billion , Goodyear’s net income was $629 million , and Goodyear's net income available to common shareholders was $600 million . Together with our U.S. and international subsidiaries and joint ventures, we develop, manufacture, market and distribute tires for most applications. We also manufacture and market rubber-related chemicals for various applications. We are one of the world’s largest operators of commercial truck service and tire retreading centers. In addition, we operate approximately 1,240 tire and auto service center outlets where we offer our products for retail sale and provide automotive repair and other services. We manufacture our products in 52 manufacturing facilities in 22 countries, including the United States, and we have marketing operations in almost every country around the world. We employ approximately 69,000 full-time and temporary associates worldwide.


    We make available free of charge on our website,, our annual report on Form 10-K, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, current reports on Form 8-K, and amendments to those reports as soon as reasonably practicable after we file or furnish such reports to the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The information on our website is not incorporated by reference in or considered to be a part of this Annual Report on Form 10-K.


    Pension Funding. In early 2014, we made contributions of approximately $1,150 million, including discretionary contributions of approximately $900 million, to fully fund our hourly U.S. pension plans. As a result, and in accordance with our master collective bargaining agreement with the United Steelworkers (“USW Contract”), the hourly U.S. pension plans will be frozen to future accruals effective April 30, 2014. Following these contributions, the Company changed its target asset allocation for these plans to a portfolio of substantially all fixed income securities designed to offset the future impact of discount rate movements on the plans' funded status. These actions will provide stability to our funded status, improve our earnings and operating cash flow and provide greater transparency to our underlying tire business. For further information, see “Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations — Overview — Pension and Benefit Plans” and Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements No. 16, Pension and Other Postretirement Benefits.

    Closure of Amiens, France Manufacturing Facility. In January 2014, we reached an agreement with union associates at one of our Amiens, France manufacturing facilities. We have ceased production at that facility, and will close the facility in the first quarter of 2014. We expect to finalize decisions regarding the timing of our exit from the remainder of the farm tire business in EMEA during 2014. We expect EMEA operating income to improve by approximately $75 million annually following these actions, including by approximately $40 million in 2014. For furthe
