UNAUDITED PRO FORMA CONDENSED COMBINED STATEMENTS OF OPERATIONS (Form 8-K)

UNAUDITED PRO FORMA CONDENSED COMBINED STATEMENTS OF OPERATIONS

On June 7, 2021 (the 'Closing Date'), The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company ('Goodyear') completed its previously announced acquisition of Cooper Tire & Rubber Company ('Cooper Tire'), pursuant to the terms of the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of February 22, 2021 (the 'Merger Agreement'), by and among Goodyear, Vulcan Merger Sub Inc., a direct, wholly owned subsidiary of Goodyear ('Merger Sub'), and Cooper Tire. On the Closing Date, Goodyear acquired Cooper Tire by way of the merger of Merger Sub with and into Cooper Tire, with Cooper Tire surviving the merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of Goodyear (the 'Merger'). Cooper Tire stockholders received $41.75 per share in cash and a fixed exchange ratio of 0.907 shares of Goodyear common stock per share of Cooper Tire common stock ('the Merger Consideration') as consideration pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, which amounted to approximately $3.1 billion.

The following unaudited pro forma condensed combined statements of operations ('pro forma statements of operations') give effect to the Merger as if it had occurred on January 1, 2020. An unaudited pro forma condensed combined balance sheet has not been presented as the acquisition and related financing transactions have already been fully reflected in the consolidated balance sheet included in Goodyear's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2021, filed on August 6, 2021. These statements and related notes, collectively referred to as 'pro forma financial information', have been prepared in accordance with Article 11 of Regulation S-X and have been derived from, and should be read in conjunction with, the historical consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes thereto on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 and on Form 10-Q for the quarterly periods ended March 31, 2021 and June 30, 2020 for both Goodyear and Cooper Tire, and on Goodyear's Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2021.

The pro forma financial information has been prepared using the acquisition method of accounting in accordance with Accounting Standard Codification ('ASC') 805, 'Business Combinations' which requires, among other things, that assets acquired and liabilities assumed in a business combination be recognized at their fair values as of the acquisition date with limited exceptions.

The historical consolidated financial information of Goodyear and Cooper Tire has been adjusted in the pro forma financial information to give effect to pro forma events, including the Merger and related financing. The pro forma statements of operations should be read in conjunction with the accompanying Notes to Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Combined Statements of Operations and do not reflect the costs of any integration activities or benefits that may result from the realization of future cost savings from operating efficiencies or any other synergies that may result from the Merger, including income tax synergies.

The statements and related notes are being provided for illustrative purposes only and do not purport to represent what Goodyear's actual results of operations would have been had the Merger been completed on January 1, 2020, nor are they necessarily indicative of Goodyear's results of operations for any future period. On the Closing Date, Goodyear completed a preliminary Merger Consideration allocation to provide an estimate of the fair values associated with certain of Cooper Tire's assets and liabilities acquired (discussed in the accompanying notes below). The determination of the fair values of certain assets acquired, including Inventories, Property, Plant and Equipment, Goodwill, Intangible Assets, and Deferred Income Taxes, is dependent upon completion of further fair value analysis by Goodyear. The determination of the fair values of certain liabilities assumed is dependent upon completion of certain actuarial and other valuations and studies. Given the complex nature of the related valuations and analyses to be completed and the timing of the acquisition, the preliminary purchase price allocation is subject to change. The final valuation of assets acquired and liabilities assumed may be materially different from the estimated values presented in the preliminary allocation of the Merger Consideration in Note 4, Merger Consideration and Preliminary Allocation.

The accounting adjustments for the acquisition consist of those necessary to account for the acquisition and are based upon available information and certain assumptions that Goodyear believes are reasonable under the circumstances. The assumptions underlying the adjustments are described in greater detail in the accompanying Notes to Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Combined Statements of Operations. In many cases, the assumptions were based on preliminary information and estimates.

Goodyear used the net proceeds from the issuance of new senior notes with an aggregate principal amount of $1,450 million, together with cash on hand and borrowings under our first lien revolving credit facility, to finance the cash portion of the Merger Consideration and related transaction costs. For purposes of the pro forma statements of operations, the adjustments related to the issuance of this debt are shown in a separate column as 'Other Adjustments'.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED PRO FORMA CONDENSED COMBINED STATEMENTS OF OPERATIONS

(In millions except for per share data, unless indicated otherwise)

Note 1. DESCRIPTION OF THE MERGER

On June 7, 2021, Goodyear completed its previously announced acquisition of Cooper Tire, pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement by and among Goodyear, Merger Sub and Cooper Tire. On the Closing Date, Goodyear acquired Cooper Tire by way of the merger of Merger Sub with and into Cooper Tire, with Cooper Tire surviving the Merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of Goodyear. Cooper Tire stockholders received $41.75 per share in cash and a fixed exchange ratio of 0.907 shares of Goodyear common stock per share of Cooper Tire common stock as consideration pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, which amounted to approximately $3.1 billion.

Note 2. BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The pro forma financial information has been prepared in accordance with Article 11 of Regulation S-X and has been compiled from historical consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ('GAAP') and should be read in conjunction with the Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 and the Form 10-Q for the quarterly periods ended March 31, 2021 and June 30, 2020 for both Goodyear and Cooper Tire, and Goodyear's Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2021. This pro forma financial information is presented for informational purposes only and is not necessarily indicative of what the combined company's results of operations actually would have been had the Merger been completed as of January 1, 2020. In addition, this pro forma financial information does not purport to project the future operating results of the combined company.

The pro forma financial information has been prepared using the acquisition method of accounting in accordance with ASC 805, 'Business Combinations' which requires, among other things, that assets acquired and liabilities assumed in a business combination be recognized at their fair values as of the acquisition date with limited exceptions. The acquisition method of accounting uses the fair value concepts defined in ASC 820, 'Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures' ('ASC 820').

ASC 820 defines fair value, establishes the framework for measuring fair value for any asset acquired or liability assumed under GAAP, and specifies a hierarchy of valuation techniques based on the nature of the inputs used to develop the fair value measurements. Fair value is defined in ASC 820 as 'the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.' Fair value measurements can be highly subjective, and it is possible the application of reasonable judgement could develop different assumptions resulting in a range of alternative estimates using the same facts and circumstances.

Acquisition accounting is dependent upon certain valuations and other studies that have yet to progress to a stage where there is sufficient information for a definitive measurement. Accordingly, the pro forma adjustments included herein are preliminary and have been presented solely for the purpose of providing the pro forma financial information and will be revised as additional information becomes available and as additional analyses are performed. The determination of the fair values of certain assets acquired, including Inventories, Property, Plant and Equipment, Goodwill, Intangible Assets, and Deferred Income Taxes, is dependent upon completion of further fair value analysis by the Company. The determination of the fair values of certain liabilities assumed is dependent upon completion of certain actuarial and other valuations and studies. Given the complex nature of the related valuations and analyses to be completed and the timing of the acquisition, the preliminary purchase price allocation is subject to change. The final valuation of assets acquired and liabilities assumed may be materially different from the estimated values presented in the preliminary allocation of the Merger Consideration in Note 4, Merger Consideration and Preliminary Allocation. Certain amounts from the historical financial statements of Cooper Tire were reclassified to conform the presentation to that of Goodyear. (See Note 3, Proforma Reclassification Adjustments.)

The total Merger Consideration has been measured using the closing market price of Goodyear common stock as of June 4, 2021 (the last trading day prior to the Closing Date).

The pro forma financial information does not reflect any of the following:

cost savings,

operating synergies,

revenue enhancements,

costs to combine the operations of Goodyear and Cooper Tire, or

realization of certain income tax synergies and benefits.

Realization of certain income tax benefits that the combined company may achieve as a result of the Merger are dependent on new sources of future taxable income, including potential tax planning.

5

The pro forma financial information has been compiled using Goodyear's historical information and accounting policies and combining the assets and liabilities of Cooper Tire at their respective estimated fair values. Goodyear's management conducted a review of Cooper Tire's accounting policies in order to determine if differences require adjustment or reclassification of Cooper Tire's results of operations, assets or liabilities to conform to Goodyear's accounting policies and classifications.

Note 3. PRO FORMA RECLASSIFICATION ADJUSTMENTS

Certain reclassifications have been recorded to Cooper Tire's historical financial statements to conform to Goodyear's presentation, as follows:

(a)

Net Sales - reclassification to Cost of Goods Sold ('CGS') of $45 million, $84 million and $36 million for the period January 1, 2021 to June 6, 2021, the year ended December 31, 2020, and the six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively, for costs incurred for transportation of products to customers.

The Merger Consideration amounted to approximately $3.1 billion.

The calculation of the Merger Consideration is as follows:

(In millions, except share and per share amounts) Shares Per Share (4) Total

Cash paid for Cooper Tire Shares(1)

$ 2,121

Cash paid for other Cooper Tire incentive compensation awards(2)

The cash component of the Merger Consideration is computed based on 100% of the outstanding shares of Cooper Tire common stock, including shares issuable pursuant to the conversion of certain equity-based awards outstanding under Cooper Tire's equity-based incentive compensation plans ('Cooper Tire Shares'), being exchanged, in part, for the per share cash amount of $41.75. Awards outstanding under Cooper Tire equity-based incentive compensation plans that were converted include Cooper Tire restricted stock units and Cooper Tire performance stock units. These Cooper Tire equity-based awards were canceled and each share equivalent unit was converted, as appropriate, into the Merger Consideration.

Preliminary Allocation of Merger Consideration

The Merger Consideration was allocated on a preliminary basis as of the Closing Date. Assets acquired and liabilities assumed were recorded at estimated fair values based on management's estimates, available information, and supportable assumptions that management considered reasonable. Under the acquisition method of accounting, the identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed of Cooper Tire are recognized and measured at fair value. The determination of the fair values of certain assets acquired, including Inventories, Property, Plant and Equipment, Goodwill, Intangible Assets, and Deferred Income Taxes, is dependent upon completion of further fair value analysis by the Company. The determination of the fair values of certain liabilities assumed is dependent upon completion of certain actuarial and other valuations and studies. Given the complex nature of the related valuations and analyses to be completed and the timing of the acquisition, the preliminary purchase price allocation is subject to change. The final valuation of assets acquired and liabilities assumed may be materially different from the estimated values shown below.

The following table sets forth the preliminary allocation of the Merger Consideration to the identifiable tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed of Cooper Tire as of June 7, 2021, with the excess recorded to Goodwill:

(a)

Inventories

The estimated value of Inventory includes adjustments totaling $230 million at the Closing Date, comprised of $121 million to adjust inventory valued on a last-in,first-out ('LIFO') basis to a current cost basis and $109 million to step-up inventory to estimated fair value. Goodyear has eliminated the LIFO reserve on Cooper Tire's U.S. inventories as Goodyear predominately determines the value of its inventory using the first-in,first-out method. To estimate the fair value of inventory, Goodyear considered the components of Cooper Tire's inventory, as well as estimates of selling prices and selling and distribution costs that were based on Cooper Tire's historical experience.

(b)

Property, Plant and Equipment

The estimated value of Property, Plant and Equipment includes adjustments totaling $175 million to increase the net book value of $1,197 million to the preliminary fair value estimate of $1,372 million. This estimate is based on other comparable acquisitions and historical experience, and preliminary expectations as to the duration of time Goodyear expects to realize benefits from those assets.

8

(c)

Intangible Assets

The estimated fair values of identifiable intangible assets acquired were prepared using an income valuation approach, which requires a forecast of expected future cash flows either through the use of the relief-from-royalty method or the multi-period excess earnings method. The estimated useful lives are based on Goodyear's historical experience and expectations as to the duration of time Goodyear expects to realize benefits from those assets. The estimated fair values of the identifiable intangible assets acquired, their estimated useful lives and related valuation methodology are as follows:

Debt, Finance Leases and Notes Payable and Overdrafts

Includes the estimated fair value of Cooper Tire's existing debt that was assumed in the Merger of $136 million, comprised of $117 million in aggregate principal amount of 7.625% senior notes due 2027 and a $19 million fair-value step-up adjustment which will be amortized to interest expense over the remaining life of the notes.

(e)

Deferred Tax Liabilities, net

Includes a ($367) million deferred tax impact related to the allocation of the Merger Consideration to the identifiable tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed and Cooper Tire's historical net deferred tax assets of $20 million.

Note 5. PRO FORMA STATEMENT OF OPERATIONS TRANSACTION ADJUSTMENTS

(f)

United States and Foreign Tax Expense

This adjustment reflects the income tax expense/benefit effects of the transaction-related adjustments based on applicable statutory tax rates. The tax rates used for this pro forma financial information are an estimate, and therefore, the blended rate will likely vary from the actual effective rate in periods subsequent to the completion of the Merger. A pro forma blended statutory tax rate of 25.0% was used in determining the tax impact of certain pro forma adjustments. This rate was estimated using the statutory income tax rate for Goodyear and Cooper Tire, weighted based on respective income (loss) before income taxes. The adjusted statutory income tax rate for Goodyear and Cooper Tire is based on the U.S. statutory income tax rate of 21%, plus 4% related to the tax rate impact of state and local income taxes and income taxes of non-U.S. operations. Income tax has not been calculated on the elimination of $90 million of transaction costs for the six months ended June 30, 2021 and approximately $30 million of transaction costs that are estimated to be capitalizable for income tax purposes for the year ended December 31, 2020 and six months ended June 30, 2020.

Company Net Income (Loss) Per Common Share

Pro forma net income (loss) per common share for the six months ended June 30, 2021 and June 30, 2020, and for the year ended December 31, 2020, has been calculated based on the estimated weighted-average number of common shares outstanding on a pro forma basis, as described below. The pro forma weighted-average shares outstanding have been calculated as if the acquisition-related shares had been issued and outstanding and outstanding Cooper Tire shares canceled as of January 1, 2020. For additional information on the calculation of acquisition-related shares, see Note 4, Merger Consideration and Preliminary Allocation.
