    On October 10, 2008, the Department issued an Affirmative 
Determination Regarding Application on Reconsideration applicable to 
workers and former workers of the subject firm. The notice was 
published in the Federal Register on October 22, 2008 (73 FR 63021).
    The previous investigation initiated on August 20, 2008, resulted 
in a negative determination issued on September 3, 2008, was based on 
the finding that imports of outdoor home speakers and lights did not 
contribute importantly to worker separations at the subject firm and no 
shift in production to a foreign source occurred. The denial notice was 
published in the Federal Register on September 18, 2008 (73 FR 54174).
    In the request for reconsideration, the petitioner provided 
additional information regarding imports of outdoor home speakers and 
lights and also requested the Department of Labor conduct further 
analysis of imports of outdoor home speakers and lights.
    The Department reviewed a major customer's survey response 
conducted during the initial investigation. On further analysis, and 
contact with the customer it has been determined that the customer 
increased imports of outdoor home speakers and lights while decreasing 
their purchases from the subject firm during January through July 2008 
over the corresponding 2007 period.
    In accordance with section 246 the Trade Act of 1974 (26 U.S.C.

of its investigation regarding certification of eligibility to apply 
for alternative trade adjustment assistance (ATAA) for older workers.

    A significant number of workers at the firm are age 50 or over and

Conclusion

reconsideration, I conclude that increased imports of articles like or 
directly competitive with those produced at Magna Services of America, 
Inc., Magna Aftermarket, Inc., a subsidiary of Magna International, 
Greenville, Michigan, contributed importantly to the declines in sales 
or production and to the total or partial separation of workers at the

on or after August 18, 2007, through two years from the date of this
