Global automotive supplier positioned for growth with strong product lines and global footprint

VAN BUREN TOWNSHIP, Michigan, October 1, 2010 - Visteon Corporation announced today it has completed its reorganization
and emerged from the U.S. Chapter 11 process. With its significantly improved
capital structure, the company is well-positioned for profitable and
sustainable growth.

Visteon completed all conditions of its plan of reorganization, which was
confirmed by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court on Aug. 31 after overwhelming approval
by all creditor and shareholder classes. Visteon emerged with a stronger
balance sheet and about US$2.1 billion less consolidated debt than when the
company and certain of its affiliates voluntarily filed for Chapter 11 in the
U.S. on May 28, 2009.

"Today marks a new beginning for Visteon, an opportunity to truly
capitalize on the many operational and financial improvements achieved before
and during the reorganization process," said Donald J. Stebbins, who
continues as chairman, chief executive officer and president. "I thank our
employees who worked tirelessly throughout our reorganization. Additionally,
I am extremely grateful to our customers, suppliers, secured lenders,
bondholders and many others for their support throughout this difficult

Visteon improved its capital and cost structure significantly during the
Chapter 11 process, reducing consolidated debt from approximately US$2.7
at the time of the filing to about US$600 million today - a level
that allows Visteon to be very competitive in the Tier 1 automotive supplier

"The new Visteon is focused on four strong product lines - climate,
electronics, interiors and lighting," Stebbins said. "We have an outstanding
global manufacturing and engineering footprint, with particular strength in
the fast-growing markets in Asia, Eastern Europe and Brazil. We have an
experienced and talented employee base, complemented by strong joint venture
partners and strategic alliances that provide a competitive advantage in the
key automotive markets of the world."
