On November 1, 2016, Accuride Corporation ("Accuride") issued a press release announcing its financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016. The press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1. The press release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures.  For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP measures, please refer to Exhibit 99.1 and Accuride's other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").

The information contained in this report and in Exhibit 99.1 is being furnished and not filed for purposes of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and are not deemed incorporated by reference by any general statements incorporating by reference this report or future filings into any filings under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, except to the extent Accuride specifically incorporates the information by reference. By filing this report on Form 8-K and furnishing this information, Accuride makes no admission as to the materiality of any information in this report that is required to be disclosed solely by reason of Regulation FD.

Forward-Looking Statements

This Current Report on Form 8-K and Exhibit 99.1 may contain "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the U.S. securities laws, including Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including statements regarding the proposed merger contemplated by the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated September 2, 2016, by and among Accuride, Armor Parent Corp. and Armor Merger Sub Corp. (such merger, the "proposed transaction" and such agreement, the "Merger Agreement") and the ability to consummate the proposed transaction. These forward-looking statements generally include statements that are predictive in nature and depend upon or refer to future events or conditions, and include words such as "believes," "plans," "anticipates," "projects," "estimates," "expects," "intends," "strategy," "future," "opportunity," "may," "will," "should," "could," "potential" or similar  expressions. Statements that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are based on current beliefs and assumptions that are subject to risks and uncertainties. Readers are cautioned  not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date they are made. Actual results could differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement as a result of various factors, including, without limitation: (1) Accuride may be unable to obtain stockholder approval for the proposed transaction; (2) the conditions to the closing of the proposed transaction may not be satisfied and required regulatory approvals may not be obtained; (3) the proposed transaction may involve unexpected costs, liabilities or delays; (4) the business of Accuride may suffer as a result of uncertainty surrounding the proposed transaction; (5) the outcome of any legal proceedings related to the proposed transaction; (6) Accuride may be adversely affected by other economic, business, legislative, regulatory and/or competitive factors; (7) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the termination of the Merger Agreement; (8) risks that the proposed transaction disrupts current plans and operations and the potential difficulties in employee retention as a result of the proposed transaction; (9) the failure by Armor Parent Corp. or Armor Merger Sub Corp. to obtain the necessary debt and equity financing arrangements set forth in the commitment letters received in connection with the proposed transaction; and (10) other risks to consummation of the proposed transaction, including the risk that the proposed transaction will not be consummated within the expected time period or at all. If the proposed transaction is consummated, Accuride's stockholders will cease to have any equity interest in Accuride and will have no right to participate in its earnings and future growth. The foregoing review of important factors that could cause actual results to differ from expectations should not be construed as exhaustive and should be read in conjunction with statements that are included herein and elsewhere, including Accuride's filings with the SEC, including its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 (the "Annual Report"), the Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A for its 2016 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the "Annual Meeting Proxy"), the Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A for its Special Meeting of Stockholders (the "Special Meeting Proxy") and recent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K filed with the SEC, which are available on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov. Except as required by applicable law, Accuride undertakes no  obligation to update any forward-looking statement, or to make any other forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Accuride does not intend, and assumes no obligation, to update any forward-looking statements. Accuride's filings with the SEC, including the Annual Report, the Annual Meeting Proxy, the Special Meeting Proxy and recent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K filed with the SEC, are available on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov.
