Accounting Policies [Abstract]
Accounting PoliciesAccounting Policies The interim consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Allegheny Technologies Incorporated and its subsidiaries. Unless the context requires otherwise, “Allegheny Technologies,” “ATI” and “the Company” refer to Allegheny Technologies Incorporated and its subsidiaries. These unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the instructions for Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and note disclosures required by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In management’s opinion, all adjustments (which include only normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. These unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s 2020 Annual Report on Form 10-K. The results of operations for these interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for any future period. The December 31, 2020 financial information has been derived from the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements. New Accounting Pronouncements Adopted In August 2020, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued new accounting guidance related to accounting for convertible instruments. Under this new guidance, embedded conversion features are no longer separated from the host contract for convertible instruments with conversion features that are not required to be accounted for as derivatives, or that do not result in substantial premiums accounted for as paid-in capital. As such, a convertible debt instrument will be accounted for as a single liability measured at its amortized cost, as long as no other features require bifurcation and recognition as derivatives. By removing those separation models, the reported interest rate of convertible debt instruments typically will be closer to the coupon interest rate. The new guidance also addresses how convertible instruments are accounted for in the diluted earnings per share calculation, requiring the if-converted method, and requires enhanced disclosures about the terms of convertible instruments and contracts in an entity’s own equity. This new guidance is effective for the Company in fiscal year 2022, with early adoption permitted. The Company adopted this new accounting guidance related to accounting for convertible instruments effective January 1, 2021 using the modified transition approach with the cumulative effect recognized as an adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings. This new guidance is applicable to the Company’s 3.5% Convertible Senior Notes due 2025 (the 2025 Convertible Notes) that were issued in June 2020, for which the embedded conversion option was required to be separately accounted for as a component of stockholders’ equity. Upon adoption on January 1, 2021, long-term debt increased by $45.4 million and stockholders’ equity decreased by the same amount, representing the net impact of two adjustments: (1) the $49.8 million value of the embedded conversion, which is net of allocated offering costs, previously classified in additional paid-in capital in stockholders’ equity, and (2) a $4.4 million increase to retained earnings for the cumulative effect of adoption primarily related to the non-cash interest expense recorded in fiscal year 2020 for the amortization of the portion of the 2025 Convertible Notes allocated to stockholders’ equity. Prospectively, the reported interest expense for the 2025 Convertible Notes will no longer include the non-cash interest expense of the equity component as required under prior accounting standards and will be closer to the 3.5% cash coupon rate. There was no impact to the Company’s earnings per share calculation as it previously applied the if-converted method to the 2025 Convertible Notes given ATI’s flexibility to settle conversions of the 2025 Convertible Notes in cash, shares of ATI’s common stock or a combination thereof, at ATI’s election.

Most of the Company’s inventory is valued utilizing the LIFO costing methodology. Inventory of the Company’s non-U.S. operations is valued using average cost or FIFO methods. Due to deflationary impacts primarily related to raw materials, the carrying value of the Company’s inventory as valued on LIFO exceeds current replacement cost, and based on a lower of cost or market value analysis, the Company maintains net realizable value (NRV) inventory valuation reserves to adjust the carrying value of LIFO inventory to current replacement cost. These NRV reserves were $0.3 million at September 30, 2021 and $44.1 million at December 31, 2020. Impacts to cost of sales for changes in the LIFO costing methodology and associated NRV inventory reserves were as follows (in millions): Nine months ended September 30, 2021 2020 LIFO benefit (charge) $ (43.8) $ 7.5 NRV benefit (charge) 43.8 (7.5) Net cost of sales impact $ — $ —

Equity Method Investments and Joint Ventures [Abstract]
Joint VenturesJoint Ventures The financial results of majority-owned joint ventures are consolidated into the Company’s operating results and financial position, with the minority ownership interest recognized in the consolidated statements of operations as net income attributable to noncontrolling interests, and as equity attributable to the noncontrolling interests within total stockholders’ equity. Investments in which the Company exercises significant influence, but which it does not control (generally a 20% to 50% ownership interest), are accounted for under the equity method of accounting. Majority-Owned Joint Ventures STAL: The Company has a 60% interest in the Chinese joint venture known as STAL. The remaining 40% interest in STAL is owned by China Baowu Steel Group Corporation Limited, a state authorized investment company whose equity securities are publicly traded in the People’s Republic of China. STAL is part of ATI’s AA&S segment and manufactures Precision Rolled Strip stainless products mainly for the electronics and automotive markets located in Asia. Cash and cash equivalents held by STAL as of September 30, 2021 were $54.9 million. Next Gen Alloys LLC: The Company has a 51% interest in Next Gen Alloys LLC, a joint venture with GE Aviation for the development of a new meltless titanium alloy powder manufacturing technology. The titanium alloy powders are being developed for use in additive manufacturing applications, including 3D printing. Cash and cash equivalents held by this joint venture as of September 30, 2021 were $1.4 million. Equity Method Joint Ventures A&T Stainless: The Company has a 50% interest in A&T Stainless, a joint venture with an affiliate company of Tsingshan Group (Tsingshan) to produce 60-inch wide stainless sheet products for sale in North America. Tsingshan purchased its 50% joint venture interest in A&T Stainless in 2018 for $17.5 million, of which $12.0 million has been received by ATI. The A&T Stainless operations included the Company’s previously-idled direct roll and pickle (DRAP) facility in Midland, PA. ATI provided hot-rolling conversion services to A&T Stainless using the AA&S segment’s HRPF. ATI accounts for the A&T Stainless joint venture under the equity method of accounting. In March 2018, ATI filed for an exclusion from the Section 232 tariffs on behalf of A&T Stainless, which imports semi-finished stainless slab products from Indonesia. In April 2019, the Company learned that this exclusion request was denied by the U.S. Department of Commerce. ATI filed new requests on behalf of A&T Stainless for exclusion from the Section 232 tariffs in October 2019. These requests were denied by the U.S. Department of Commerce in the second quarter of 2020, and the 25% tariff remains in place. Due to repeated tariff exclusion denials, the DRAP facility was idled in an orderly shut down process that was completed in the third quarter of 2020. ATI’s share of A&T Stainless results was income of $0.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and a net loss of $0.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, and losses of $1.6 million and $10.1 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively, which is included within other income/expense, net, on the consolidated statements of operations. These equity method results are reported in the AA&S segment, with the exception of ATI’s $2.4 million share of a charge recorded by A&T Stainless for termination benefits during the quarter ended June 30, 2020. As of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, ATI had net receivables for working capital advances and administrative services from A&T Stainless of $4.8 million and $14.0 million, respectively. For the September 30, 2021 balance of net receivables, $0.8 million was reported in prepaid expenses and other current assets and $4.0 million in other long-term assets on the consolidated balance sheet, while for December 31, 2020, $0.5 million was reported in prepaid expenses and other current assets and $13.5 million in other long-term assets. In addition, ATI evaluated the collectability of its remaining $5.5 million receivable from Tsingshan, which is reported in other long-term assets on the consolidated balance sheet, and concluded that no impairment or loss in expected value exists at this time. Uniti: ATI has a 50% interest in the industrial titanium joint venture known as Uniti, with the remaining 50% interest held by VSMPO, a Russian producer of titanium, aluminum, and specialty steel products. Uniti is accounted for under the equity method of accounting. ATI’s share of Uniti’s income was $0.1 million and $1.0 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively, and $0.6 million and $1.1 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively, which is included in the AA&S segment’s operating results, and within other income/expense, net on the consolidated statements of operations.

This cash gain was reported as an investing activity on the consolidated statement of cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and is excluded from segment operating results. In the second quarter of 2020, the Company finalized a settlement agreement for an indemnity claim concerning a conditional asset retirement obligation (ARO) with the buyer of a formerly-owned business and as a result, the Company reduced ARO reserves by $4.3 million. Restructuring Restructuring charges for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021 were a net credit of $2.3 million for a reduction in severance-related reserves related to approximately 50 employees based on changes in planned operating rates and revised workforce reduction estimates. Restructuring charges for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 were a net credit of $8.5 million, reflecting a $9.2 million reduction in severance-related reserves related to approximately 250 employees based on changes in planned operating rates and revised workforce reduction estimates, partially offset by $0.7 million of other costs related to facility idlings. These amounts were presented as restructuring charges/credits in the consolidated statements of operations and are excluded from segment EBITDA. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recorded restructuring charges of $2.3 million and $27.0 million, respectively, which are presented as restructuring charges/credits in the consolidated statements of operations and are excluded from segment EBITDA. These charges were a result of workforce right-sizing actions to better match the Company’s cost structure to expected demand, primarily as a result of economic challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic. For the third quarter of 2020, these charges are comprised of severance obligations for the elimination of approximately 100 positions at several operating locations and the corporate office. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, these charges also include severance obligations for the reduction of approximately 550 positions for both involuntary reductions and voluntary retirement incentive programs related to both salary and hourly employees in the HPMC segment in the second quarter of 2020 and the reduction of approximately 90 positions for a voluntary retirement incentive program completed in the first quarter of 2020 for eligible salaried employees, building on the previously announced restructuring program in the fourth quarter of 2019. Restructuring reserves for severance cost activity is as follows: Severance and Employee Benefit Costs Balance at December 31, 2020 $ 43.4 Adjustments (9.2) Payments (12.4) Balance at September 30, 2021 $ 21.8

(b) The payment obligations of these debentures issued by Allegheny Ludlum, LLC are fully and unconditionally guaranteed by ATI. Revolving Credit Facility The Company has an Asset Based Lending (ABL) Credit Facility, which is collateralized by the accounts receivable and inventory of the Company’s domestic operations. The ABL facility, which matures in September 2024, includes a $500 million revolving credit facility, a letter of credit sub-facility of up to $200 million, and a $200 million term loan (Term Loan). The Term Loan has an interest rate of 2.0% plus a LIBOR spread and can be prepaid in increments of $25 million if certain minimum liquidity conditions are satisfied. In addition, the Company has the right to request an increase of up to $200 million in the maximum amount available under the revolving credit facility for the duration of the ABL. The Company has a $50 million floating-for-fixed interest rate swap which converts a portion of the Term Loan to a 4.21% fixed interest rate. The swap matures in June 2024. The applicable interest rate for revolving credit borrowings under the ABL facility includes interest rate spreads based on available borrowing capacity that range between 1.25% and 1.75% for LIBOR-based borrowings and between 0.25% and 0.75% for base rate borrowings. The ABL facility contains a financial covenant whereby the Company must maintain a fixed charge coverage ratio of not less than 1.00:1.00 after an event of default has occurred and is continuing or if the undrawn availability under the ABL revolving credit portion of the facility is less than the greater of (i) $87.5 million, calculated as 12.5% of the then applicable maximum advance amount under the revolving credit portion of the ABL and the outstanding Term Loan balance, or (ii) $62.5 million. The Company does not meet this fixed charge coverage ratio at September 30, 2021. As a result, the Company is unable to access 12.5%, or $87.5 million, of the ABL facility until it meets the ratio. Additionally, the Company must demonstrate minimum liquidity, as calculated in accordance with the terms of the ABL facility, during the 90-day period immediately preceding the stated maturity date of the 4.75% Convertible Notes due 2022 and the 5.875% Notes due 2023. The ABL also contains customary affirmative and negative covenants for credit facilities of this type, including limitations on the Company’s ability to incur additional indebtedness or liens or to enter into investments, mergers and acquisitions, dispositions of assets and transactions with affiliates, some of which are more restrictive, at any time during the term of the ABL when the Company’s fixed charge coverage ratio is less than 1.00:1.00 and its undrawn availability under the revolving portion of the ABL is less than the greater of (a) $150 million or (b) 30% of the sum of the maximum advance amount under the revolving credit portion of the ABL and the outstanding Term Loan balance. As of September 30, 2021, there were no outstanding borrowings under the revolving portion of the ABL facility, and $42.8 million was utilized to support the issuance of letters of credit. There were no average revolving credit borrowings under the ABL facility for the first nine months of 2021. There were average revolving credit borrowings of $38 million bearing an average annual interest rate of 2.2% under the ABL facility for the first nine months of 2020. 2029 and 2031 Notes On September 14, 2021, ATI issued $325 million aggregate principal amount of 4.875% Senior Notes due 2029 (2029 Notes) and $350 million aggregate principal amount of 5.125% Senior Notes due 2031 (2031 Notes). Interest on the 2029 Notes is payable semi-annually in arrears at a rate of 4.875% per year, and the 2020 Notes will mature on October 1, 2029. Interest on the 2031 Notes is payable semi-annually in arrears at a rate of 5.125% per year, and the 2031 Notes will mature on October 1, 2031. Total combined net proceeds of $665.7 million from both of these issuances were primarily used to fund the redemption of all of the $500 million aggregate principal amount outstanding of the 5.875% Senior Notes due 2023 (2023 Notes) on October 14, 2021, including a make-whole payment and accrued interest, following a 30 day notice of redemption as required by the 2023 Notes indenture. As such, the 2023 Notes are classified as short-term debt on the consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2021. In the fourth quarter 2021, the Company will recognize a $65.5 million debt extinguishment charge, which includes a $64.5 million cash make-whole payment related to the early extinguishment of the 2023 Notes and a $1.0 million charge for the remaining unrecognized portion of the 2023 Notes deferred debt issue costs. Underwriting fees and other third-party expenses for the issuance of the 2029 and 2031 Notes were $4.7 million each, and are being amortized to interest expense over the 8-year and 10-year terms of the 2029 and 2031 Notes, respectively. The 2029 and 2031 Notes are unsecured and unsubordinated obligations of the Company and equally ranked with all of its existing and future senior unsecured debt. The 2029 and 2031 Notes restrict the Company’s ability to create certain liens, to enter into sale leaseback transactions, guarantee indebtedness and to consolidate or merge all, or substantially all, of its assets. The Company has the option to redeem the 2029 and 2031 Notes, as a whole or in part, at any time or from time to time, on at least 15 days, but not more than 60 days, prior notice to the holders of the Notes at redemption prices specified in the 2029 and 2031 Notes. The 2029 and 2031 Notes are subject to repurchase upon the occurrence of a change in control repurchase event (as defined in the 2029 and 2031 Notes) at a repurchase price in cash equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes repurchased, plus any accrued and unpaid interest on the 2029 or 2031 Notes repurchased, as applicable. 2025 Convertible Notes In 2020, the Company issued $291.4 million aggregate principal amount of 2025 Convertible Notes. The Company used a portion of the net proceeds from the offering of the 2025 Convertible Notes to repurchase $203.2 million aggregate principal amount of its outstanding 2022 Convertible Notes, resulting in a $21.5 million debt extinguishment charge. The Company also used the net proceeds of the offering of the 2025 Convertible Notes to pay the cost of capped call transactions, described below, which was recorded as a reduction to additional paid-in-capital in stockholders’ equity on the consolidated balance sheet. As of September 30, 2021, the fair value of the 2025 Convertible Notes is $402 million based on the quoted market price, which is classified in Level 1 of the fair value hierarchy. The 2025 Convertible Notes have a 3.5% cash coupon rate that is payable semi-annually in arrears on each June 15 and December 15. Including amortization of deferred issuance costs, the effective interest rate is 4.2% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 8.4% for the quarter ended September 30, 2020. The effective interest rate is lower in 2021 due to the early-adoption of new accounting guidance on January 1, 2021, as described below. Remaining deferred issuance costs were $7.0 million and $8.2 million at September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively. Interest expense on the 2025 Convertible Notes was as follows: Three months ended September 30, Nine months ended September 30, (in millions) 2021 2020 2021 2020 Contractual coupon rate $ 2.5 $ 2.4 $ 7.6 $ 2.4 Amortization of debt issuance costs 0.5 0.4 1.3 0.4 Total interest expense $ 3.0 $ 2.8 $ 8.9 $ 2.8 The Company does not have the right to redeem the 2025 Convertible Notes prior to June 15, 2023. On or after June 15, 2023 and prior to the 41st scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date, the Company may redeem all or any portion of the 2025 Convertible Notes, at its option, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount thereof, plus any accrued and unpaid interest, if the last reported sale price of ATI’s common stock has been at least 130% of the conversion price then in effect for at least 20 trading days (whether or not consecutive) during any 30 consecutive trading day period (including the last trading day of such period) ending on the trading day immediately preceding the date on which ATI provides written notice of redemption. The initial conversion rate for the 2025 Convertible Notes is 64.5745 shares of ATI common stock per $1,000 principal amount of the 2025 Convertible Notes, equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $15.49 per share (18.8 million shares). Prior to the close of business on the business day immediately preceding March 15, 2025, the 2025 Convertible Notes will be convertible at the option of the holders of 2025 Convertible Notes only upon the satisfaction of specified conditions and during certain periods. Thereafter, until the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date, the 2025 Convertible Notes will be convertible at the option of holders of 2025 Convertible Notes at any time regardless of these conditions. Conversions of the 2025 Convertible Notes may be settled in cash, shares of ATI’s common stock or a combination thereof, at ATI’s election. As a result of this flexible settlement feature of the 2025 Convertible Notes, the embedded conversion option was required to be separately accounted for as a component of stockholders’ equity. The value of the embedded conversion option was determined to be $51.4 million based on the estimated fair value of comparable senior unsecured debt without the conversion feature, using an income approach of expected present value. During the 2020 fiscal year, the equity component was amortized as additional non-cash interest expense, commonly referred to as phantom yield, over the term of the 2025 Convertible Notes using the effective interest method. As a result, as of December 31, 2020, $49.8 million of the 2025 Convertible Notes was recorded in additional paid-in-capital in stockholders’ equity ($51.4 million of the gross $291.4 million, net of $1.6 million of allocated offering costs). Due to the non-cash phantom yield and including debt issue cost amortization, the 2025 Convertible Notes had reported interest expense in 2020 at an 8.4% rate, higher than the 3.5% cash coupon rate. Effective January 1, 2021, ATI early-adopted new accounting guidance as discussed in Note 1 that eliminated the equity component classification of the embedded conversion option, as well as the phantom yield portion of interest expense on a prospective basis. Upon adoption on January 1, 2021, long-term debt increased by $45.4 million, representing the $46.8 million equity component of convertible debt as of December 31, 2020 in the above table, net of reclassified debt issue costs. ATI entered into privately negotiated capped call transactions with certain of the initial purchasers of the 2025 Convertible Notes or their respective affiliates (collectively, the Counterparties). The capped call transactions are expected generally to reduce potential dilution to ATI’s common stock upon any conversion of the 2025 Convertible Notes and/or offset any cash payments ATI is required to make in excess of the principal amount of converted 2025 Convertible Notes, as the case may be, with such reduction and/or offset subject to a cap based on the cap price. The cap price of the capped call transactions initially is approximately $19.76 per share, and is subject to adjustments under the terms of the capped call transactions. 2022 Convertible Notes As of June 30, 2021, the Company had outstanding $84.2 million aggregate principal amount of the 2022 Convertible Notes, which mature on July 1, 2022. As of September 30, 2021, the fair value of the 2022 Convertible Notes is $115 million based on the quoted market price, which is classified in Level 1 of the fair value hierarchy. Interest on the 2022 Convertible Notes at the 4.75% cash coupon rate is payable semi-annually in arrears on each January 1 and July 1. Including amortization of deferred issuance costs, the effective interest rate is 5.4% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020. Remaining deferred issuance costs were $0.4 million and $0.7 million at September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively. Interest expense on the 2022 Convertible Notes was as follows: Three months ended September 30, Nine months ended September 30, (in millions) 2021 2020 2021 2020 Contractual coupon rate $ 1.0 $ 1.0 $ 3.0 $ 7.6 Amortization of debt issuance costs 0.2 0.1 0.4 0.9 Total interest expense $ 1.2 $ 1.1 $ 3.4 $ 8.5 The Company does not have the right to redeem the 2022 Convertible Notes prior to their stated maturity date. Holders of the 2022 Convertible Notes have the option to convert their notes into shares of the Company’s common stock, at any time prior to the close of business on the business day immediately preceding the stated maturity date (July 1, 2022). The initial conversion rate for the remaining $84.2 million of 2022 Convertible Notes is 69.2042 shares of ATI common stock per $1,000 (in whole dollars) principal amount of Notes (5.8 million shares), equivalent to a conversion price of $14.45 per share, subject to adjustment in certain events. Other than receiving cash in lieu of fractional shares, holders do not have the option to receive cash instead of shares of common stock upon conversion. Accrued and unpaid interest that exists upon conversion of a note will be deemed paid by the delivery of shares of ATI common stock and no cash payment or additional shares will be given to the holders. If the Company undergoes a fundamental change as defined in the agreement, holders of the 2022 Convertible Notes may require the Company to repurchase the notes in whole or in part for cash at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the notes to be purchased plus any accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the repurchase date.

Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities Disclosure [Abstract]
Derivative Financial Instruments and HedgingDerivative Financial Instruments and Hedging As part of its risk management strategy, the Company, from time-to-time, utilizes derivative financial instruments to manage its exposure to changes in raw material prices, energy costs, foreign currencies, and interest rates. In accordance with applicable accounting standards, the Company accounts for most of these contracts as hedges. The Company sometimes uses futures and swap contracts to manage exposure to changes in prices for forecasted purchases of raw materials, such as nickel, and natural gas. Under these contracts, which are generally accounted for as cash flow hedges, the price of the item being hedged is fixed at the time that the contract is entered into, and the Company is obligated to make or receive a payment equal to the net change between this fixed price and the market price at the date the contract matures. The majority of ATI’s products are sold utilizing raw material surcharges and index mechanisms. However, as of September 30, 2021, the Company had entered into financial hedging arrangements, primarily at the request of its customers, related to firm orders, for an aggregate notional amount of approximately 4 million pounds of nickel with hedge dates through 2024. The aggregate notional amount hedged is approximately 10% of a single year’s estimated nickel raw material purchase requirements. At September 30, 2021, the outstanding financial derivatives used to hedge the Company’s exposure to energy cost volatility included natural gas cost hedges. At September 30, 2021, the Company hedged approximately 80% of its forecasted domestic requirements for natural gas for the remainder of 2021, approximately 75% for 2022, approximately 35% for 2023 and approximately 5% for 2024. While the majority of the Company’s direct export sales are transacted in U.S. dollars, foreign currency exchange contracts are used, from time-to-time, to limit transactional exposure to changes in currency exchange rates for those transactions denominated in a non-U.S. currency. The Company sometimes purchases foreign currency forward contracts that permit it to sell specified amounts of foreign currencies expected to be received from its export sales for pre-established U.S. dollar amounts at specified dates. The forward contracts are denominated in the same foreign currencies in which export sales are denominated. These contracts are designated as hedges of the variability in cash flows of a portion of the forecasted future export sales transactions which otherwise would expose the Company to foreign currency risk, primarily euro. In addition, the Company may also hedge forecasted capital expenditures and designate cash balances held in foreign currencies as hedges of forecasted foreign currency transactions. At September 30, 2021, the Company had no significant outstanding foreign currency forward contracts. The Company may enter into derivative interest rate contracts to maintain a reasonable balance between fixed- and floating-rate debt. The Company has a $50 million floating-for-fixed interest rate swap which converts a portion of the Term Loan to a 4.21% fixed rate. The swap matures in June 2024. The Company designated the interest rate swap as a cash flow hedge of the Company’s exposure to the variability of the payment of interest on a portion of its Term Loan borrowings. The ineffectiveness at hedge inception, determined from the fair value of the swap immediately prior to its July 2019 amendment, was amortized to interest expense over the initial Term Loan swap maturity date of January 12, 2021. There are no credit risk-related contingent features in the Company’s derivative contracts, and the contracts contained no provisions under which the Company has posted, or would be required to post, collateral. The counterparties to the Company’s derivative contracts are substantial and creditworthy commercial banks that are recognized market makers. The Company controls its credit exposure by diversifying across multiple counterparties and by monitoring credit ratings and credit default swap spreads of its counterparties. The Company also enters into master netting agreements with counterparties when possible. The fair values of the Company’s derivative financial instruments are presented below, representing the gross amounts recognized which are not offset by counterparty or by type of item hedged. All fair values for these derivatives were measured using Level 2 information as defined by the accounting standard hierarchy, which includes quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, and inputs derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data.

For derivative financial instruments that are designated as fair value hedges, changes in the fair value of these derivatives are recognized in current period results and are reported as changes within accrued liabilities and other on the consolidated statements of cash flows. There were no outstanding fair value hedges as of September 30, 2021. The Company did not use net investment hedges for the periods presented. The effects of derivative instruments in the tables below are presented net of related income taxes, excluding any impacts of changes to income tax valuation allowances affecting results of operations or other comprehensive income, when applicable (see Note 15 for further explanation). Assuming market prices remain constant with those at September 30, 2021, a pre-tax gain of $8.6 million is expected to be recognized over the next 12 months. Activity with regard to derivatives designated as cash flow hedges for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 was as follows (in millions): Amount of Gain (Loss) Amount of Gain (Loss) Three months ended September 30, Three months ended September 30, Derivatives in Cash Flow Hedging Relationships 2021 2020 2021 2020 Nickel and other raw material contracts $ (0.2) $ 2.1 $ 1.5 $ 0.7 Natural gas contracts 5.6 2.5 1.0 (0.8) Foreign exchange contracts — — — — Interest rate swap (0.2) 0.1 (0.2) (0.2) Total $ 5.2 $ 4.7 $ 2.3 $ (0.3) Amount of Gain (Loss) Amount of Gain (Loss) Nine months ended September 30, Nine months ended September 30, Derivatives in Cash Flow Hedging Relationships 2021 2020 2021 2020 Nickel and other raw material contracts $ 2.6 $ (2.1) $ 4.1 $ (1.3) Natural gas contracts 8.0 1.2 1.2 (2.8) Foreign exchange contracts 0.1 (0.1) — (0.1) Interest rate swap (0.1) (2.1) (0.6) (0.7) Total $ 10.6 $ (3.1) $ 4.7 $ (4.9) (a) The gains (losses) reclassified from accumulated OCI into income related to the derivatives, with the exception of the interest rate swap, are presented in cost of sales in the same period or periods in which the hedged item affects earnings.

The December 31, 2020 debt carrying value includes $46.8 million for the unamortized balance of the portion of the 2025 Convertible Notes recorded in stockholders’ equity due to the flexible settlement feature of the notes. Effective January 1, 2021, ATI early-adopted new accounting guidance that eliminated the equity component classification of the embedded conversion option of the 2025 Convertible Notes (see Note 1). In accordance with accounting standards, fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Accounting standards established three levels of a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs used to measure fair value. This hierarchy requires entities to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. The three levels of inputs used to measure fair value are as follows: Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. Level 2 – Observable inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1, such as quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar assets and liabilities in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data. Level 3 – Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets and liabilities. This includes certain pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies and similar techniques that use significant unobservable inputs. The availability of observable market data is monitored to assess the appropriate classification of financial instruments within the fair value hierarchy. Changes in economic conditions or model-based valuation techniques may require the transfer of financial instruments from one fair value level to another. In such instances, the transfer is reported at the beginning of the reporting period. The following methods and assumptions were used by the Company in estimating the fair value of its financial instruments: Cash and cash equivalents: Fair value was determined using Level 1 information. Derivative financial instruments: Fair values for derivatives were measured using exchange-traded prices for the hedged items. The fair value was determined using Level 2 information, including consideration of counterparty risk and the Company’s credit risk. Short-term and long-term debt: The fair values of the Company’s publicly traded debt were based on Level 1 information. The fair values of the other short-term and long-term debt were determined using Level 2 information.

Retirement Benefits [Abstract]
Retirement BenefitsRetirement Benefits The Company has defined contribution retirement plans or defined benefit pension plans covering substantially all employees. Company contributions to defined contribution retirement plans are generally based on a percentage of eligible pay or based on hours worked. Benefits under the defined benefit pension plans are generally based on years of service and/or final average pay. The Company funds the U.S. pension plans in accordance with the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended, and the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (IRC). The Company also sponsors several postretirement plans covering certain collectively-bargained salaried and hourly employees. The plans provide health care and life insurance benefits for eligible retirees. In most retiree health care plans, Company contributions towards premiums are capped based on the cost as of a certain date, thereby creating a defined contribution. All defined benefit pension and retiree health care plans are closed to new entrants. As a result of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) enacted in March 2021, the rules governing pension funding calculations have changed, and minimum funding requirements were reduced. Prior to the ARPA changes, ATI’s fiscal year 2021 funding requirements and expected cash contributions were approximately $87 million. As a result of these ARPA changes, ATI’s prior contributions have generated a credit balance that may be utilized to offset future minimum required contributions. ATI made a $50 million voluntary cash contribution to ATI Pension Plan in the third quarter 2021 to improve the plan’s funded position, bringing the total U.S. qualified defined benefit pension plan contributions to $67.5 million for fiscal year 2021. For the three month periods ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, the components of pension and other postretirement benefit expense (income) for the Company’s defined benefit plans included the following (in millions): Pension Benefits Other Postretirement Benefits Three months ended September 30, Three months ended September 30, 2021 2020 2021 2020 Service cost - benefits earned during the year $ 3.8 $ 3.2 $ 0.4 $ 0.6 Interest cost on benefits earned in prior years 17.1 21.6 1.9 2.6 Expected return on plan assets (34.1) (33.6) — — Amortization of prior service cost (credit) 0.2 0.1 (0.6) (0.9) Amortization of net actuarial loss 18.9 18.6 3.6 2.7 Settlement gain — — (64.9) — Total retirement benefit expense (income) $ 5.9 $ 9.9 $ (59.6) $ 5.0 For the nine month periods ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, the components of pension and other postretirement benefit expense for the Company’s defined benefit plans included the following (in millions): Pension Benefits Other Postretirement Benefits Nine months ended September 30, Nine months ended September 30, 2021 2020 2021 2020 Service cost - benefits earned during the year $ 11.3 $ 9.5 $ 1.1 $ 1.7 Interest cost on benefits earned in prior years 51.3 64.7 6.1 8.0 Expected return on plan assets (102.3) (100.8) — — Amortization of prior service cost (credit) 0.5 0.5 (1.9) (2.8) Amortization of net actuarial loss 56.7 55.8 10.2 8.1 Settlement gain — — (64.9) — Total retirement benefit expense (income) $ 17.5 $ 29.7 $ (49.4) $ 15.0 On July 14, 2021, ATI announced that a new four-year labor agreement with the USW was ratified (see Note 11 for further discussion). As a result of this new CBA, ATI recognized a $64.9 million pretax gain in the third quarter of 2021, which is recorded in nonoperating retirement benefit income/expense on the consolidated statement of operations, related to a plan termination that eliminated certain postretirement medical benefit liabilities, comprised of $43.0 million of long-term postretirement benefit liabilities as of July 2021 and $21.9 million of amounts recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income at that date. Discrete tax effects related to this event were $15.5 million of income tax expense (see Note 13 for further discussion).

Income Tax Disclosure [Abstract]
Income TaxesIncome Taxes The provision for income taxes for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $22.0 million and $31.5 million, respectively. The current year tax expense is mainly attributable to the $15.5 million in discrete tax effects related to the postretirement medical benefits gain discussed in Note 12, in accordance with ATI’s accounting policy for recognizing deferred tax amounts stranded in accumulated other comprehensive income. The tax provision for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $0.8 million, or (1.7)%, and $104.2 million, or (30.7)%, respectively, of loss before taxes, based on the actual year to date effective rate for this period. In the second quarter 2020, the Company entered into a three-year cumulative loss within the United States, limiting the Company’s ability to utilize future projections when analyzing the need for a valuation allowance, therefore limiting sources of income as part of the analysis. As a result, ATI recorded a $99.0 million deferred tax asset valuation allowance on its U.S. federal and state tax attributes in the second quarter of 2020. ATI continues to maintain valuation allowances on its U.S. federal and state deferred tax assets, as well as for certain foreign jurisdictions. Throughout 2020, the Company calculated the provision for income taxes based upon actual year to date results due to the uncertainty of future projections as a result of the global pandemic. For 2021, the Company continues to be unable to make a reliable estimate of the annual effective tax rate, as significant changes in projected results for the Company’s U.S. operations could produce a significant variation in its annual effective tax rate. As a result, the Company recorded income tax for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 based upon an annual effective tax rate for its foreign, non-valuation allowance operations, combined with actual year-to-date tax expense related to its U.S. jurisdictions.

Segment Reporting [Abstract]
Business SegmentsBusiness SegmentsThe Company operates in two business segments: High Performance Materials & Components (HPMC) and Advanced Alloys & Solutions (AA&S). In the fourth quarter 2020, the Company changed its segment performance measure from segment operating profit to segment EBITDA, based on internal reporting changes. Prior period results are presented using the new performance measure. The measure of segment EBITDA excludes all effects of LIFO inventory accounting and any related changes in net realizable value inventory reserves, which offset the Company’s aggregate net debit LIFO valuation balance, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, corporate expenses, net interest expense, closed operations and other income (expense), charges for goodwill and asset impairments, restructuring and other credits/charges, strike related costs, debt extinguishment charges and non-operating gains or losses. Management believes segment EBITDA, as defined, provides an appropriate measure of controllable operating results at the business segment level. Following is certain financial information with respect to the Company’s business segments for the periods indicated (in millions): Three months ended September 30, Nine months ended September 30, 2021 2020 2021 2020 Total sales: High Performance Materials & Components $ 325.0 $ 230.1 $ 908.9 $ 995.3 Advanced Alloys & Solutions 464.7 393.3 1,280.1 1,487.1 789.7 623.4 2,189.0 2,482.4 Intersegment sales: High Performance Materials & Components 25.0 8.8 67.4 53.0 Advanced Alloys & Solutions 39.0 16.6 87.2 105.6 64.0 25.4 154.6 158.6 Sales to external customers: High Performance Materials & Components 300.0 221.3 841.5 942.3 Advanced Alloys & Solutions 425.7 376.7 1,192.9 1,381.5 $ 725.7 $ 598.0 $ 2,034.4 $ 2,323.8 Three months ended September 30, Nine months ended September 30, 2021 2020 2021 2020 EBITDA: High Performance Materials & Components $ 37.4 $ 16.8 $ 99.2 $ 122.1 Advanced Alloys & Solutions 56.8 11.0 142.5 85.5 Total segment EBITDA 94.2 27.8 241.7 207.6 LIFO and net realizable value reserves — — — — Corporate expenses (12.9) (10.2) (41.0) (29.7) Closed operations and other expense (1.4) (1.0) (4.5) (4.6) Total ATI Adjusted EBITDA 79.9 16.6 196.2 173.3 Depreciation & amortization (a) (35.6) (35.4) (108.0) (108.3) Interest expense, net (25.1) (25.1) (72.2) (68.7) Restructuring and other credits (charges) (See Note 7) 2.3 (2.3) 8.5 (27.0) Strike related costs (22.9) — (63.2) — Retirement benefit settlement gain (See Note 12) 64.9 — 64.9 — Impairment of goodwill — — — (287.0) Joint venture restructuring charge (See Note 6) — — — (2.4) Debt extinguishment charge (See Note 8) — — — (21.5) Gain on asset sales and sale of business (See Notes 5 and 6) 13.7 — 13.7 2.5 Income (loss) before income taxes $ 77.2 $ (46.2) $ 39.9 $ (339.1) (a) The following is depreciation & amortization by each business segment: Three months ended September 30, Nine months ended September 30, 2021 2020 2021 2020 High Performance Materials & Components $ 18.2 $ 19.5 $ 57.0 $ 58.5 Advanced Alloys & Solutions 16.3 15.1 47.9 47.4 Other 1.1 0.8 3.1 2.4 $ 35.6 $ 35.4 108.0 108.3 Corporate expenses in the third quarter and first nine months of 2021 reflect higher incentive compensation costs compared to the prior year periods. The first nine months of 2020 included reversals of previously-recognized incentive compensation expense due to COVID-19 pandemic impacts. The Company’s collective bargaining agreement (CBA) with the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied & Industrial Service Workers International Union, AFL-CIO, CLC (USW) involving approximately 1,100 active full-time represented employees located primarily within the AA&S segment operations, as well as a number of inactive employees, expired on February 28, 2021. USW-represented employees continued to work under the terms of the expired CBA until March 30, 2021 when they engaged in a strike. On July 14, 2021, ATI announced that a new four-year labor agreement with the USW was ratified, ending the strike. During the third quarter of 2021, the Company recorded $22.9 million in strike related costs, of which $21.5 million were excluded from AA&S segment EBITDA and $1.4 million were excluded from HPMC segment EBITDA. During the first nine months of 2021, the Company recorded $63.2 million in strike related costs, of which $59.7 million were excluded from AA&S segment EBITDA and $3.5 million were excluded from HPMC segment EBITDA. These items primarily consisted of overhead costs recognized in the period due to below-normal operating rates and higher costs for outside conversion activities. During the second quarter of 2020, the Company recorded a $287.0 million goodwill impairment charge for the partial impairment of the Forged Products reporting unit goodwill in the HPMC segment. This goodwill impairment charge was excluded from 2020 HPMC business segment EBITDA.

Commitments and Contingencies Disclosure [Abstract]
Commitments and ContingenciesCommitments and Contingencies The Company is subject to various domestic and international environmental laws and regulations that govern the discharge of pollutants and disposal of wastes, and which may require that it investigate and remediate the effects of the release or disposal of materials at sites associated with past and present operations. The Company could incur substantial cleanup costs, fines, and civil or criminal sanctions, third party property damage or personal injury claims as a result of violations or liabilities under these laws or noncompliance with environmental permits required at its facilities. The Company is currently involved in the investigation and remediation of a number of its current and former sites, as well as third party sites. Environmental liabilities are recorded when the Company’s liability is probable and the costs are reasonably estimable. In many cases, however, the Company is not able to determine whether it is liable or, if liability is probable, to reasonably estimate the loss or range of loss. Estimates of the Company’s liability remain subject to additional uncertainties, including the nature and extent of site contamination, available remediation alternatives, the extent of corrective actions that may be required, and the number, participation, and financial condition of other potentially responsible parties (PRPs). The Company adjusts its accruals to reflect new information as appropriate. Future adjustments could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated results of operations in a given period, but the Company cannot reliably predict the amounts of such future adjustments. At September 30, 2021, the Company’s reserves for environmental remediation obligations totaled approximately $13 million, of which $5 million was included in other current liabilities. The reserve includes estimated probable future costs of $3 million for federal Superfund and comparable state-managed sites; $8 million for formerly owned or operated sites for which the Company has remediation or indemnification obligations; and $2 million for owned or controlled sites at which Company operations have been or plan to be discontinued. The timing of expenditures depends on a number of factors that vary by site. The Company expects that it will expend present accruals over many years and that remediation of all sites with which it has been identified will be completed within thirty years. The Company continues to evaluate whether it may be able to recover a portion of past and future costs for environmental liabilities from third parties and to pursue such recoveries where appropriate. Based on currently available information, it is reasonably possible that costs for recorded matters may exceed the Company’s recorded reserves by as much as $16 million. Future investigation or remediation activities may result in the discovery of additional hazardous materials or potentially higher levels of contamination than discovered during prior investigation, and may impact costs associated with the success or lack thereof in remedial solutions. Therefore, future developments, administrative actions or liabilities relating to environmental matters could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated financial condition or results of operations. A number of other lawsuits, claims and proceedings have been or may be asserted against the Company relating to the conduct of its currently and formerly owned businesses, including those pertaining to product liability, environmental, health and safety matters and occupational disease (including as each relates to alleged asbestos exposure), as well as patent infringement, commercial, government contracting, construction, employment, employee and retiree benefits, taxes, environmental, and stockholder and corporate governance matters. While the outcome of litigation cannot be predicted with certainty, and some of these lawsuits, claims or proceedings may be determined adversely to the Company, management does not believe that the disposition of any such pending matters is likely to have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial condition or liquidity, although the resolution in any reporting period of one or more of these matters could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated results of operations for that period.

Accounting Policies [Abstract]
Basis Of AccountingThe interim consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Allegheny Technologies Incorporated and its subsidiaries. Unless the context requires otherwise, “Allegheny Technologies,” “ATI” and “the Company” refer to Allegheny Technologies Incorporated and its subsidiaries.These unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the instructions for Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and note disclosures required by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In management’s opinion, all adjustments (which include only normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. These unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s 2020 Annual Report on Form 10-K. The results of operations for these interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for any future period. The December 31, 2020 financial information has been derived from the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements.
New Accounting Pronouncements AdoptedNew Accounting Pronouncements Adopted In August 2020, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued new accounting guidance related to accounting for convertible instruments. Under this new guidance, embedded conversion features are no longer separated from the host contract for convertible instruments with conversion features that are not required to be accounted for as derivatives, or that do not result in substantial premiums accounted for as paid-in capital. As such, a convertible debt instrument will be accounted for as a single liability measured at its amortized cost, as long as no other features require bifurcation and recognition as derivatives. By removing those separation models, the reported interest rate of convertible debt instruments typically will be closer to the coupon interest rate. The new guidance also addresses how convertible instruments are accounted for in the diluted earnings per share calculation, requiring the if-converted method, and requires enhanced disclosures about the terms of convertible instruments and contracts in an entity’s own equity. This new guidance is effective for the Company in fiscal year 2022, with early adoption permitted. The Company adopted this new accounting guidance related to accounting for convertible instruments effective January 1, 2021 using the modified transition approach with the cumulative effect recognized as an adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings. This new guidance is applicable to the Company’s 3.5% Convertible Senior Notes due 2025 (the 2025 Convertible Notes) that were issued in June 2020, for which the embedded conversion option was required to be separately accounted for as a component of stockholders’ equity. Upon adoption on January 1, 2021, long-term debt increased by $45.4 million and stockholders’ equity decreased by the same amount, representing the net impact of two adjustments: (1) the $49.8 million value of the embedded conversion, which is net of allocated offering costs, previously classified in additional paid-in capital in stockholders’ equity, and (2) a $4.4 million increase to retained earnings for the cumulative effect of adoption primarily related to the non-cash interest expense recorded in fiscal year 2020 for the amortization of the portion of the 2025 Convertible Notes allocated to stockholders’ equity. Prospectively, the reported interest expense for the 2025 Convertible Notes will no longer include the non-cash interest expense of the equity component as required under prior accounting standards and will be closer to the 3.5% cash coupon rate. There was no impact to the Company’s earnings per share calculation as it previously applied the if-converted method to the 2025 Convertible Notes given ATI’s flexibility to settle conversions of the 2025 Convertible Notes in cash, shares of ATI’s common stock or a combination thereof, at ATI’s election.
InventoryInventories are stated at the lower of cost (last-in, first-out (LIFO), first-in, first-out (FIFO), and average cost methods) or market. Most of the Company’s inventory is valued utilizing the LIFO costing methodology. Inventory of the Company’s non-U.S. operations is valued using average cost or FIFO methods. Due to deflationary impacts primarily related to raw materials, the carrying value of the Company’s inventory as valued on LIFO exceeds current replacement cost, and based on a lower of cost or market value analysis, the Company maintains net realizable value (NRV) inventory valuation reserves to adjust the carrying value of LIFO inventory to current replacement cost.
DerivativesAs part of its risk management strategy, the Company, from time-to-time, utilizes derivative financial instruments to manage its exposure to changes in raw material prices, energy costs, foreign currencies, and interest rates. In accordance with applicable accounting standards, the Company accounts for most of these contracts as hedges. The Company sometimes uses futures and swap contracts to manage exposure to changes in prices for forecasted purchases of raw materials, such as nickel, and natural gas. Under these contracts, which are generally accounted for as cash flow hedges, the price of the item being hedged is fixed at the time that the contract is entered into, and the Company is obligated to make or receive a payment equal to the net change between this fixed price and the market price at the date the contract matures. The majority of ATI’s products are sold utilizing raw material surcharges and index mechanisms. However, as of September 30, 2021, the Company had entered into financial hedging arrangements, primarily at the request of its customers, related to firm orders, for an aggregate notional amount of approximately 4 million pounds of nickel with hedge dates through 2024. The aggregate notional amount hedged is approximately 10% of a single year’s estimated nickel raw material purchase requirements. At September 30, 2021, the outstanding financial derivatives used to hedge the Company’s exposure to energy cost volatility included natural gas cost hedges. At September 30, 2021, the Company hedged approximately 80% of its forecasted domestic requirements for natural gas for the remainder of 2021, approximately 75% for 2022, approximately 35% for 2023 and approximately 5% for 2024. While the majority of the Company’s direct export sales are transacted in U.S. dollars, foreign currency exchange contracts are used, from time-to-time, to limit transactional exposure to changes in currency exchange rates for those transactions denominated in a non-U.S. currency. The Company sometimes purchases foreign currency forward contracts that permit it to sell specified amounts of foreign currencies expected to be received from its export sales for pre-established U.S. dollar amounts at specified dates. The forward contracts are denominated in the same foreign currencies in which export sales are denominated. These contracts are designated as hedges of the variability in cash flows of a portion of the forecasted future export sales transactions which otherwise would expose the Company to foreign currency risk, primarily euro. In addition, the Company may also hedge forecasted capital expenditures and designate cash balances held in foreign currencies as hedges of forecasted foreign currency transactions. At September 30, 2021, the Company had no significant outstanding foreign currency forward contracts. The Company may enter into derivative interest rate contracts to maintain a reasonable balance between fixed- and floating-rate debt. The Company has a $50 million floating-for-fixed interest rate swap which converts a portion of the Term Loan to a 4.21% fixed rate. The swap matures in June 2024. The Company designated the interest rate swap as a cash flow hedge of the Company’s exposure to the variability of the payment of interest on a portion of its Term Loan borrowings. The ineffectiveness at hedge inception, determined from the fair value of the swap immediately prior to its July 2019 amendment, was amortized to interest expense over the initial Term Loan swap maturity date of January 12, 2021. There are no credit risk-related contingent features in the Company’s derivative contracts, and the contracts contained no provisions under which the Company has posted, or would be required to post, collateral. The counterparties to the Company’s derivative contracts are substantial and creditworthy commercial banks that are recognized market makers. The Company controls its credit exposure by diversifying across multiple counterparties and by monitoring credit ratings and credit default swap spreads of its counterparties. The Company also enters into master netting agreements with counterparties when possible.
Retirement BenefitsThe Company has defined contribution retirement plans or defined benefit pension plans covering substantially all employees. Company contributions to defined contribution retirement plans are generally based on a percentage of eligible pay or based on hours worked. Benefits under the defined benefit pension plans are generally based on years of service and/or final average pay. The Company funds the U.S. pension plans in accordance with the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended, and the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (IRC). The Company also sponsors several postretirement plans covering certain collectively-bargained salaried and hourly employees. The plans provide health care and life insurance benefits for eligible retirees. In most retiree health care plans, Company contributions towards premiums are capped based on the cost as of a certain date, thereby creating a defined contribution. All defined benefit pension and retiree health care plans are closed to new entrants.
Commitments And ContingenciesEnvironmental liabilities are recorded when the Company’s liability is probable and the costs are reasonably estimable. In many cases, however, the Company is not able to determine whether it is liable or, if liability is probable, to reasonably estimate the loss or range of loss. Estimates of the Company’s liability remain subject to additional uncertainties, including the nature and extent of site contamination, available remediation alternatives, the extent of corrective actions that may be required, and the number, participation, and financial condition of other potentially responsible parties (PRPs). The Company adjusts its accruals to reflect new information as appropriate. Future adjustments could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated results of operations in a given period, but the Company cannot reliably predict the amounts of such future adjustments.
