Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation Announces $40 Million Asahi Tec Settlement

The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation settled a long-standing lawsuit with Asahi Tec Corporation, that called into question the authority the PBGC, and U.S. courts, have over foreign companies with U.S. operations. Asahi Tec Corp. agreed to pay PBGC $39.5 million. Asahi Tec bought Metaldyne based in Plymouth, Mich., in 2007 for $1.2 billion. Two years later, Metaldyne went bankrupt. PBGC asked Asahi Tec to take on the pensions of Metaldyne's 10,000 workers, and also requested Asahi cover the terminated plan's $200 million in liabilities. In October 2013, a U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., affirmed its jurisdiction over the foreign company, and said Asahi Tec was liable for the unfunded benefits and the termination premiums of its bankrupt subsidiary. Asahi argued that because it did not make any decisions with respect to Metaldyne's pension plan, it had no obligation to assume the liabilities. The court ruled that was irrelevant, and emphasized in its decision that Asahi extensively reviewed Metaldyne's pension obligations before completing the acquisition. Prior to that ruling, which allowed PBGC's $175 million suit against Asahi to proceed, foreign corporate parents of U.S.-based subsidiaries operated under the assumption that they were not responsible for subsidiary pensions.
