Item 8.01 Other Events.

On September 13, 2007, Ferro Corporation entered into a settlement agreement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") related to previously disclosed inappropriate accounting entries in Ferro’s Polymer Additives business, which were discovered in 2004. As part of the settlement and without admitting or denying any wrongdoing, Ferro has agreed to the entry of an administrative order by the SEC. The order directs Ferro to cease and desist from committing or causing violations of certain of the reporting provisions of Federal securities laws and related SEC rules. The SEC’s order contains no finding of securities fraud or violation of any antifraud provision of Federal securities laws or related SEC rules. Ferro was not required to pay any monetary penalty or fine in connection with the resolution of this matter.

In addition, on September 14, 2007, plaintiffs in the previously disclosed consolidated securities class action lawsuit against Ferro and certain former officers of Ferro filed a voluntary dismissal with prejudice of their appeal of an earlier decision by the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio. The District Court's June 2007 decision dismissed the plaintiff's complaint that had alleged certain violations of Federal securities laws related to the inappropriate accounting entries in Ferro's Polymer Additives business, which were discovered in 2004.
