NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Dollars in thousands, except per share amounts or amounts described in millions)
(Unaudited)
Note 1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Basis of Presentation
     The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Gardner Denver, Inc. and its majority-owned subsidiaries (referred to herein as “Gardner Denver” or the “Company”). In consolidation, all significant intercompany transactions and accounts have been eliminated. As discussed below, certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation. Prior year per share amounts in this report on Form 10-Q have been adjusted to reflect the two-for-one stock split (in the form of a 100% stock dividend) that occurred on June 1, 2006.
     The financial information presented as of any date other than December 31, 2006 has been prepared from the books and records of the Company without audit. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“generally accepted accounting principles”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of such financial statements, have been included.
     The unaudited interim consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in Gardner Denver’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2006.
     The results of operations for the three-month period ended March 31, 2007 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. The balance sheet at December 31, 2006 has been derived from the audited financial statements at that date but does not include all of the information and notes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements.
     Other than as specifically indicated in the “Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements” included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, the Company has not materially changed its significant accounting policies from those disclosed in its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2006.
     In connection with the Company’s adoption of FASB Interpretation No. 48, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes – an interpretation of FASB Statement No. 109” (“FIN 48”) effective January 1, 2007 (see Note 3, “Income Taxes”), the liability established for unrecognized income tax benefits relative to matters not expected to be resolved within twelve months at March 31, 2007 has been classified as a non-current liability. The balance sheet at December 31, 2006 was reclassified to conform to the current presentation and, accordingly, approximately $9.4 million of the liability for unrecognized tax benefits at December 31, 2006 was reclassified from current liabilities to non-current liabilities.

Table of Contents

     Effective January 1, 2007, the Company’s presentation of certain expenses within its consolidated statements of operations has been changed. Depreciation expense recorded in connection with the manufacture of the Company’s products sold during each reporting period is included in the caption “Cost of sales.” Depreciation expense not associated with the manufacture of the Company’s products and amortization expense are included in the caption “Selling and administrative expenses.” Depreciation and amortization expense were previously combined and reported in the caption “Depreciation and amortization.” The Company believes that this change in classification provides a more meaningful measure of its respective cost of sales and selling and administrative expenses. These reclassifications had no effect on reported consolidated income before income taxes, net income, per share amounts or reportable segment operating earnings. Amounts presented for the three-month period ended March 31, 2006 have been reclassified to conform to the current classification. The following table provides the reclassified statements of operations and amounts reclassified for the periods indicated.

Changes in Accounting Principles and Effects of New Accounting Pronouncements
     In June 2006, the FASB issued FIN 48, which prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. FIN 48 also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition. FIN 48 is effective for fiscal years

Table of Contents

beginning after December 15, 2006 and was adopted by the Company in the first quarter of 2007. See Note 3, “Income Taxes,” for a discussion of the effect of adoption of FIN 48 on the Company’s financial statements.
     In June 2006, the Emerging Issues Task Force (“EITF”) reached a consensus on the income statement presentation of various types of taxes. The new guidance, Emerging Issues Task Force Issue 06-3 “How Taxes Collected from Customers and Remitted to Governmental Authorities Should Be Presented in the Income Statement (That Is, Gross versus Net Presentation)” (“EITF 06-3”) applies to any tax assessed by a governmental authority that is directly imposed on a revenue-producing transaction between a seller and a customer and may include, but is not limited to, sales, use, value added, and some excise taxes. The presentation of taxes within the scope of this issue on either a gross (included in revenues and costs) or a net (excluded from revenues) basis is an accounting policy decision that should be disclosed pursuant to APB Opinion No. 22, “Disclosure of Accounting Policies.” The EITF’s decision on gross versus net presentation requires that any such taxes reported on a gross basis be disclosed on an aggregate basis in interim and annual financial statements, for each period for which an income statement is presented, if those amounts are significant. The Company adopted EITF 06-3 effective January 1, 2007. The Company reports revenues net of taxes within the scope of EITF 06-3 and, accordingly, adoption of this issue had no effect on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.
     In September 2006, the FASB issued SFAS No. 157, “Fair Value Measurements” (“SFAS No. 157”), which defines fair value, establishes a framework for using fair value to measure assets and liabilities, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. SFAS No. 157 applies whenever other statements require or permit assets or liabilities to be measured at fair value. This statement is effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007. The Company is currently evaluating the impact that the adoption of SFAS No. 157 will have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosure requirements.
     In September 2006, the FASB issued SFAS No. 158, “Employers’ Accounting for Defined Benefit Pension and Other Postretirement Plans – an amendment of FASB Statements No. 87, 88, 106 and 132(R)” (“SFAS No. 158”), which requires companies to recognize a net liability or asset and an offsetting adjustment to accumulated other comprehensive income, net of tax, to report the funded status of defined benefit pension and other postretirement benefit plans. Additionally, this statement requires companies to measure the fair value of plan assets and benefit obligations as of the date of the fiscal year-end balance sheet. The Company was in compliance with this requirement at December 31, 2006. The Company adopted the recognition provisions of SFAS No. 158 effective December 31, 2006.
     In February 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No. 159, “The Fair Value Option for Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities” (“SFAS No. 159”), which permits all entities to elect to measure eligible financial instruments at fair value. Additionally, this statement establishes presentation and disclosure requirements designed to facilitate comparisons between entities that choose different measurement attributes for similar types of assets and liabilities. This statement is effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007, with early adoption permitted for an entity that has also elected to apply the provisions of SFAS No. 157. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the adoption of SFAS No. 159 will have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosure requirements.

Note 2. Business Combinations
     All acquisitions have been accounted for by the purchase method and, accordingly, their results are included in the Company’s consolidated financial statements from the respective dates of acquisition. Under the purchase method, the purchase price is allocated based on the fair value of assets received and liabilities assumed as of the acquisition date.
     In connection with the acquisition of Thomas Industries Inc. (“Thomas”) in 2005, the Company initiated plans to close and consolidate certain former Thomas facilities, primarily in the U.S. and Europe. These plans include various voluntary and involuntary employee termination and relocation programs affecting both salaried and hourly employees and exit costs associated with the sale, lease termination or sublease of certain manufacturing and administrative facilities. The terminations, relocations and facility exits are expected to be substantively completed during the first half of 2007. A liability of $17,500 was included in the allocation of the Thomas purchase price for the estimated cost of these actions at July 1, 2005 in accordance with EITF No. 95-3, “Recognition of Liabilities in Connection with a Purchase Business Combination.” Based on finalization of these plans, an estimated total cost of $16,487 was included in the allocation of the Thomas purchase price. The cost of these plans is comprised of the following:
         
Voluntary and involuntary employee termination and relocation
  $ 14,454  
Lease termination and related costs
    1,007  
Other
    1,026  
 
     
 
       
Total
  $ 16,487  
 
     
     The following table summarizes the activity in the associated accrual account. Additional amounts accrued (reversed), net, in 2006 were recorded as adjustments to the cost of acquiring Thomas. Amounts reversed in the three-month period ended March 31, 2007 were credited to income.

Note 3. Income Taxes
     The Company adopted the provisions of FIN 48 effective January 1, 2007. As a result of the implementation of FIN 48, the Company recognized a decrease of $1.3 million in the liability for unrecognized tax benefits, which was accounted for as a $0.7 million increase to retained earnings at January 1, 2007, and a $0.6 million decrease to goodwill at January 1, 2007. As of the date of adoption and after the impact of recognizing the decrease in the liability noted above, the Company’s unrecognized tax benefits totaled $14.0 million. During the first quarter of 2007, the Company resolved certain tax issues that further reduced the liability to $11.3 million. Included in the unrecognized tax benefits at March 31, 2007 are $1.8 million of uncertain tax positions that would affect the Company’s effective tax rate if recognized. The balance of the unrecognized tax benefits, $9.5 million, would be recognized as an adjustment to goodwill.
     The Company expects the following significant change to its unrecognized tax benefits within the next twelve months. A German subsidiary concluded a tax audit during the first quarter of 2007 and agreed to a settlement of approximately $1.7 million. Payment of this tax liability is expected to be made during the second quarter of 2007.
     The Company’s accounting policy with respect to interest expense on underpayments of income tax and related penalties is to recognize it as part of the provision for income taxes. The Company’s income tax liabilities at March 31, 2007 include approximately $2.2 million of accrued interest, of which approximately $0.9 million relates to goodwill, and no penalties.
     The Company’s U.S. federal income tax returns for the tax years 2003 and beyond remain subject to examination by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”). The IRS in October 2006 announced an exam of an acquired subsidiary, Thomas, for the year 2004. As of the date of this report, the exam has not commenced. The statute of limitations for the U.S. state tax returns are open beginning with the 2003 tax year except for two states for which the statute has been extended beginning with the 2001 tax year. The statute of limitations for each 2003 tax return will expire during 2007.
     The Company is subject to tax in approximately 30 jurisdictions outside the U.S. The statute of limitations varies by jurisdiction with 2001 being the oldest tax year still open, except as noted below. The Company’s significant operations outside the U.S. are located in the U.K. and Germany. In the U.K., one inquiry of a tax return for a tax year prior to 2005 remains open. The Company expects to resolve the inquiry without a material change. In Germany, generally, the tax years 2003 and beyond remain subject to examination with the statute of limitations for the 2003 tax year expiring during 2008. In addition to the German tax audit noted above, an acquired subsidiary group is under audit for the tax years 2000 through 2002. The findings to date are not material. In addition, audits are being conducted in various states and countries for years ranging from 2001 through 2005. To date, no material adjustments have been proposed as a result of these audits.

Plan Descriptions
     Under the Company’s Amended and Restated Long-Term Incentive Plan (the “Incentive Plan”), designated employees and non-employee directors are eligible to receive awards in the form of stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock awards or performance shares, as determined by the Management Development and Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors. Under the Incentive Plan, the grant price of an option is determined by the Management Development and Compensation Committee, but must not be less than the market close price of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant. The grant price for options granted prior to May 1, 2007 could not be less than the average of the high and low price of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant. The Incentive Plan provides that the term of any option granted may not exceed ten years. There are no vesting provisions tied to performance conditions for any of the outstanding options and restricted stock awards. Vesting for all outstanding options or restricted stock awards is based solely on continued service as an employee or director of the Company and generally vest upon retirement, death or cessation of service due to disability, if earlier.
     Under the terms of existing awards, employee options become vested and exercisable ratably on each of the first three anniversaries of the date of grant. The options granted to employees in 2007 and 2006 expire seven years after the date of grant. The options granted to non-employee directors become exercisable on the first anniversary of the date of grant and expire five years after the date of grant.
Stock Option Awards

The total pre-tax intrinsic value of stock options exercised during the first quarters of 2007 and 2006, was $4.2 million and $5.4 million, respectively. Pre-tax unrecognized compensation expense for stock options, net of estimated forfeitures, was $3.1 million as of March 31, 2007, and will be recognized as expense over a weighted-average period of 1.5 years.

Pre-tax unrecognized compensation expense for nonvested restricted stock awards, net of estimated forfeitures, was $0.5 million as of March 31, 2007, which will be recognized as expense over a weighted-average period of 2.3 years.
Valuation Assumptions and Expense under SFAS No. 123(R)
     The fair value of each stock option grant under the Company’s Long-Term Incentive Plan was estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. The weighted-average assumptions for the periods indicated are noted in the table below.

Note 12. Supplemental Cash Flow Information
     In the three-month periods ended March 31, 2007 and 2006, the Company paid $12.2 million and $19.2 million, respectively, to various taxing authorities for income taxes. Interest paid for the same three-month periods of 2007 and 2006, was $4.0 million and $7.4 million, respectively.
Note 13. Contingencies
     The Company is a party to various legal proceedings, lawsuits and administrative actions, which are of an ordinary or routine nature. In addition, due to the bankruptcies of several asbestos manufacturers and other primary defendants, among other things, the Company has been named as a defendant in a number of asbestos personal injury lawsuits. The Company has also been named as a defendant in a number of silicosis personal injury lawsuits. The plaintiffs in these suits allege exposure to asbestos or silica from multiple sources and typically the Company is one of approximately 25 or more named defendants. In the Company’s experience to date, the substantial majority of the plaintiffs have not suffered an injury for which the Company bears responsibility.
     Predecessors to the Company sometimes manufactured, distributed and/or sold products allegedly at issue in the pending asbestos and silicosis litigation lawsuits (the “Products”). However, neither the

Company nor its predecessors ever mined, manufactured, mixed, produced or distributed asbestos fiber or silica sand, the materials that allegedly caused the injury underlying the lawsuits. Moreover, the asbestos-containing components of the Products were enclosed within the subject Products.
     The Company has entered into a series of cost-sharing agreements with multiple insurance companies to secure coverage for asbestos and silicosis lawsuits. The Company also believes some of the potential liabilities regarding these lawsuits are covered by indemnity agreements with other parties. The Company’s uninsured settlement payments for past asbestos and silicosis lawsuits have been immaterial.
     The Company believes that the pending and future asbestos and silicosis lawsuits will not, in the aggregate, have a material adverse effect on its consolidated financial position, results of operations or liquidity, based on: the Company’s anticipated insurance and indemnification rights to address the risks of such matters; the limited potential asbestos exposure from the components described above; the Company’s experience that the vast majority of plaintiffs are not impaired with a disease attributable to alleged exposure to asbestos or silica from or relating to the Products or for which the Company otherwise bears responsibility; various potential defenses available to the Company with respect to such matters; and the Company’s prior disposition of comparable matters. However, due to inherent uncertainties of litigation and because future developments, including, without limitation, potential insolvencies of insurance companies or other defendants, could cause a different outcome, there can be no assurance that the resolution of pending or future lawsuits will not have a material adverse effect on its consolidated financial position, results of operations or liquidity.
     The Company has been identified as a potentially responsible party (“PRP”) with respect to several sites designated for cleanup under federal “Superfund” or similar state laws, which impose liability for cleanup of certain waste sites and for related natural resource damages. Persons potentially liable for such costs and damages generally include the site owner or operator and persons that disposed or arranged for the disposal of hazardous substances found at those sites. Although these laws impose joint and several liability, in application, the PRPs typically allocate the investigation and cleanup costs based upon the volume of waste contributed by each PRP. Based on currently available information, the Company was only a small contributor to these waste sites, and the Company has, or is attempting to negotiate, de minimis settlements for their cleanup. The cleanup of the remaining sites is substantially complete and the Company’s future obligations entail a share of the sites’ ongoing operating and maintenance expense.
     The Company is also addressing three on-site cleanups for which it is the primary responsible party. Two of these cleanup sites are in the operation and maintenance stage and the third is in the implementation stage. The Company is also participating in a voluntary clean-up program with other PRPs on a fourth site which is in the assessment stage. Based on currently available information, the Company does not anticipate that any of these sites will result in material additional costs beyond those already accrued on its balance sheet.
     The Company has an accrued liability on its balance sheet to the extent costs are known or can be estimated for its remaining financial obligations for these matters. Based upon consideration of currently available information, the Company does not anticipate any materially adverse effect on its results of operations, financial condition, liquidity or competitive position as a result of compliance with federal, state, local or foreign environmental laws or regulations, or cleanup costs relating to the sites discussed above.

Note 14. Segment Results
     The Company’s organizational structure is based on the products and services it offers and consists of five operating divisions: Compressor, Blower, Engineered Products, Thomas Products and Fluid Transfer. These divisions comprise two reportable segments: Compressor and Vacuum Products and Fluid Transfer Products. The Compressor, Blower, Engineered Products and Thomas Products divisions are aggregated into the Compressor and Vacuum Products segment because the long-term financial performance of these businesses are affected by similar economic conditions and their products, manufacturing processes and other business characteristics are similar in nature.
     The following table provides financial information by business segment for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2007 and 2006:

Note 15. Guarantor Subsidiaries
     The Company’s obligations under its 8% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2013 are jointly and severally, fully and unconditionally guaranteed by certain wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries of the Company (the “Guarantor Subsidiaries”). The Company’s subsidiaries that do not guarantee the Senior Subordinated Notes are referred to as the “Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries”. The guarantor condensed consolidating financial data presented below presents the statements of operations, balance sheets and statements of cash flows data (i) for Gardner Denver, Inc. (the “Parent Company”), the Guarantor Subsidiaries and the Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries on a consolidated basis (which is derived from Gardner Denver’s historical reported financial information); (ii) for the Parent Company, alone (accounting for its Guarantor Subsidiaries and Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries on a cost basis under which the investments are recorded by each entity owning a portion of another entity at historical cost); (iii) for the Guarantor Subsidiaries alone; and (iv) for the Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries alone.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
     The following management’s discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2006, including the financial statements and accompanying notes, and the interim consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes included in this Report on Form 10-Q.
Operating Segments
     The Company’s organizational structure is based on the products and services it offers and consists of five operating divisions: Compressor, Blower, Engineered Products, Thomas Products and Fluid Transfer. These divisions comprise two reportable segments: Compressor and Vacuum Products and Fluid Transfer Products. The Compressor, Blower, Engineered Products and Thomas Products divisions are aggregated into the Compressor and Vacuum Products segment because the long-term financial performance of these businesses are affected by similar economic conditions and their products, manufacturing processes and other business characteristics are similar in nature.
     The Company has determined its reportable segments in accordance with SFAS No. 131, “Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information” and evaluates the performance of its reportable segments based on income before interest expense, other income, net, and income taxes. Reportable segment operating earnings (defined as revenues less cost of sales and selling and administrative expenses) and segment operating margin (defined as segment operating earnings divided by revenues) are indicative of short-term operating performance and ongoing profitability. Management closely monitors the operating earnings of its reportable segments to evaluate past performance, management performance and compensation, and actions required to improve profitability.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
     To supplement the Company’s financial information presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), management, from time to time, uses additional measures to clarify and enhance understanding of past performance and prospects for the future. These measures may exclude, for example, the impact of unique and infrequent items or items outside of management’s control (e.g. foreign currency exchange rates).
Results of Operations
Performance in the Quarter Ended March 31, 2007 Compared
with the Quarter Ended March 31, 2006
Revenues
     Revenues increased $42.1 million (11%) to $441.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2007, compared to the same period of 2006. This increase was primarily due to favorable foreign currency translation (5%), volume growth (3%) and price increases (3%). The increased shipment volume was primarily attributable to petroleum-related fluid transfer products such as drilling and well stimulation pumps.
     For the three months ended March 31, 2007, revenues for the Compressor and Vacuum Products segment increased 6% to $338.9 million, compared to $318.4 million in 2006. This increase was primarily due to favorable foreign currency translation (5%) and price increases (1%). During the first three months of 2007, strong demand for Compressor and Vacuum Products in European and Asian markets was partially offset by weaker demand for mobile blowers in North America.
     Fluid Transfer Products segment revenues increased $21.7 million (27%) to $102.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2007, compared to the same period of 2006. This improvement in revenues was primarily driven by volume growth (14%) due to higher shipments of drilling and well stimulation pumps, price increases (11%) and favorable changes in foreign currency exchange rates (2%).

Costs and Expenses
     Cost of sales as a percentage of revenues improved to 66.3% in the three-month period ended March 31, 2007 from 66.8% in the same period of 2006. This improvement was attributable to cost reduction initiatives and leveraging fixed and semi-fixed costs over additional production volume. Favorable sales mix also contributed to the year-over-year improvement as the first quarter of 2007 included a higher percentage of drilling and well servicing pump shipments than the first quarter of 2006 and these products have cost of sales percentages below the Company’s average. Decreases in manufacturing productivity and supply chain inefficiencies related to product line relocations associated with acquisition integration projects in the first quarter of 2007 and material and other cost increases partially offset these improvements.
     As a percentage of revenues, selling and administrative expenses improved to 18.3% for the three-month period ended March 31, 2007, compared to 19.6% for the same period of 2006, as a result of cost control initiatives and leveraging these expenses over higher revenue. Selling and administrative expenses increased $2.6 million in the three-month period ended March 31, 2007 to $80.8 million as compared to the same period of 2006, primarily due to unfavorable changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Compensation and benefit expense increases were more than offset by cost reductions realized through completed integration initiatives. Stock-based compensation expense was $2.9 million in the three-month period ended March 31, 2007, compared to $2.8 million recognized in the same period of 2006. A disproportionate amount of stock-based compensation expense is recognized in the first quarter of each year due to the number of options and restricted stock awards granted to employees eligible for retirement, the total value of which is recognized at the time the award is granted.
     The Compressor and Vacuum Products segment generated operating earnings of $39.0 million and operating margin of 11.5% in the first quarter of 2007, compared to $35.8 million and 11.2%, respectively, in the first quarter of 2006 (see Note 14 “Segment Results” in the “Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements” for a reconciliation of segment operating earnings to consolidated income before taxes). This improvement was primarily due to the favorable impact of foreign currency exchange rates, increased leverage of the segment’s fixed and semi-fixed costs over additional revenue and cost reduction initiatives. The above factors were partially offset by increased material costs and compensation-related expenses.
     The Fluid Transfer Products segment generated operating earnings of $29.1 million and operating margin of 28.4% for the three-month period ended March 31, 2007, compared to $18.6 million and 23.0%, respectively, for the same period of 2006 (see Note 14 “Segment Results” in the “Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements” for a reconciliation of segment operating earnings to consolidated income before taxes). This improvement was primarily due to the positive impact of increased leverage of the segment’s fixed and semi-fixed costs over increased revenue. Improved productivity, benefits from capital investments and favorable sales mix associated with a higher proportion of drilling and well stimulation pumps also contributed to the improvement. The above factors were partially offset by increased material costs and compensation-related expenses.
     Interest expense decreased $3.5 million in the first quarter of 2007 compared to the first quarter of 2006. This decrease was primarily due to significantly lower debt levels during the first three months of 2007 compared to the first three months of 2006. The weighted average interest rate, including the amortization of debt issuance costs, was 6.7% for the three-month period ended March 31, 2007 compared to 6.9% in the prior year period. (See Note 8 “Debt” in the “Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements”).

     The provision for income taxes increased $4.7 million to $19.1 million for the three-month period ending March 31, 2007 compared to $14.4 million for the three-month period ending March 31, 2006, as a result of higher income before income taxes, partially offset by a lower effective tax rate. The Company’s effective tax rate decreased to 30.8% in the first quarter of 2007, compared to 32.0% in the first quarter of 2006 primarily as a result of the favorable resolution of certain previously open tax matters.
     Net income for the three-month period ending March 31, 2007 totaled $42.8 million, an increase of $12.3 million, or 40%, compared to $30.5 million in the same period of 2006. This improvement resulted from higher income before income taxes and a lower effective tax rate in the first quarter of 2007 compared to 2006. Diluted earnings per share were $0.80 in the first quarter of 2007, which represents a 40% increase compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.57 for the same period of 2006.
Outlook
     In general, the Company believes that demand for compressor and vacuum products tends to correlate to the rate of manufacturing capacity utilization and the rate of change of industrial equipment production because air is often used as a fourth utility in the manufacturing process. Over longer time periods, the Company believes that demand also tends to follow economic growth patterns indicated by the rates of change in the Gross Domestic Product around the world. Generally, demand for the Company’s products used in industrial applications has lagged economic cycle changes by approximately six months. In the first quarter of 2007, manufacturing capacity utilization rates in the U.S., as published by the Federal Reserve Board, remain above 80%, which has historically indicated a good demand environment for industrial equipment such as compressors and blowers.
     The Company, however, expects the industrial production rate of growth to slow in the U.S. throughout 2007, partially offset by increasing demand in the U.S. for environmental applications. The Company continues to see growing industrial demand in Europe and on-going strength in Asia. As a result of these growth expectations, the Company believes that the industrial portion of its business will continue to grow in 2007, although at a slower rate than realized in 2006. While the Company has less visibility of the demand for petroleum pumps than at this time last year, it expects the demand for oil and natural gas well servicing pumps and aftermarket parts to grow in 2007, compared to 2006. The Company has invested in key machine tools in order to increase its production capacities accordingly. At this point, the Company is uncertain about the level of drilling pump demand in the second half of 2007, but has some flexibility to reduce the levels of previously outsourced production if demand were to decline.
     In the first quarter of 2007, orders for compressor and vacuum products were $367.5 million, compared to $333.7 million in the same period of 2006. Order backlog for the Compressor and Vacuum Products segment was $385.5 million as of March 31, 2007, compared to $314.9 million as of March 31, 2006. The increase in orders and backlog compared to the prior year was primarily due to the favorable effect of changes in foreign currency exchange rates, an overall improvement in demand and pricing.

     Demand for petroleum-related fluid transfer products has historically corresponded to market conditions and expectations for oil and natural gas prices. Orders for fluid transfer products were $74.6 million in the first quarter of 2007, compared to $88.1 million in the first quarter of 2006. Quotations for drilling pumps for international rigs have recently increased, but the time associated with securing these orders, compared with North American activity, is significantly longer. Order backlog for the Fluid Transfer Products segment was $158.8 million at March 31, 2007, compared to $172.2 million at March 31, 2006, representing an 8% decrease. The decreases in orders and backlog are primarily associated with the decline in drilling pump demand, partially offset by continued growth in demand for well servicing pumps and aftermarket parts. While demand for well servicing pumps and aftermarket parts is expected to grow throughout 2007, drilling pump demand is anticipated to continue to decelerate through the remainder of the year, resulting in declining backlog and lower second half segment revenues compared to the first half. Future demand for these products will likely be dependent upon rig counts and oil and natural gas prices, which the Company cannot predict.
     The Company has launched several initiatives aimed at integrating recent acquisitions and streamlining manufacturing operations. The Company has substantially completed its plan to transfer the manufacturing of standard liquid ring pumps from a production facility in Nuremberg, Germany to other existing Company facilities in China and Brazil. Construction of the facility expansion in China was finished during the third quarter of 2006 and shipments of products previously manufactured in Germany have commenced at both facilities.
     In addition, management has begun to rationalize the Company’s European blower product lines and manufacturing facilities. Through this project, the Company’s separate blower manufacturing operations located in Schopfheim, Germany were merged, and the Company has relocated the mobile blower product line from Schopfheim to a Gardner Denver facility in the U.K., where other European mobile equipment is currently manufactured. As part of this project, management is also rationalizing the side-channel blower product lines acquired as part of the Nash Elmo and Thomas acquisitions and centralizing production of standard products in the Company’s manufacturing facility in Bad Neustadt, Germany.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
Operating Working Capital
     During the three months ended March 31, 2007, operating working capital (defined as accounts receivable plus inventories, less accounts payable and accrued liabilities) increased $23.2 million to $216.2 million from $193.0 million at December 31, 2006. This increase was driven by higher receivables, inventories and unfavorable foreign currency exchange rates, largely offset by an increase in accounts payable and accrued liabilities. The increase in accounts receivables was primarily due to changes in product mix compared with the fourth quarter of 2006 and timing of shipments within the quarter. Inventory growth from December 31, 2006 reflected temporary production and supply chain inefficiencies related to manufacturing relocations and higher inventory levels required to support the planned increase in production volume and shipments. Inventory turns improved to 4.8 times in the first quarter of 2007 from 4.7 times in the first quarter of 2006. These factors were partially offset by increases in accounts payable and higher accrued liabilities.
Cash Flows
     Cash provided by operating activities of $36.7 million in the first three months of 2007 compares with cash used in operating activities of $8.8 million in the same period of 2006. This improvement primarily reflects the Company’s increased earnings, gross of depreciation and amortization expense,

and improved working capital management compared with the first quarter of 2006. Cash used to fund operating working capital was $17.1 million in the three-month period of 2007 compared to $54.0 million in the three-month period of 2006. Net cash used in financing activities of $15.6 million in the three-month period of 2007 primarily reflected the use of available cash and cash generated from operating activities to repay long-term borrowings. At March 31, 2007 the Company’s debt to total capital was 30.1%, compared to 32.3% at December 31, 2006 and 45.3% at March 31, 2006.
Capital Expenditures and Commitments
     Capital projects designed to increase operating efficiency and flexibility, expand production capacity, support acquisition integration projects and bring new products to market resulted in expenditures of $8.3 million in the first three months of 2007. This was $1.9 million higher than capital spending in the comparable period in 2006, primarily due to the timing of capital projects and spending related to integration projects. Capital expenditures related to environmental projects have not been significant in the past and are not expected to be significant in the foreseeable future.
     In October 1998, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to 3,200,000 shares of the Company’s common stock to be used for general corporate purposes, of which 420,600 shares remain available for repurchase under this program as of March 31, 2007. The Company has also established a Stock Repurchase Program for its executive officers to provide a means for them to sell the Company’s common stock and obtain sufficient funds to meet income tax obligations which arise from the exercise or vesting of incentive stock options, restricted stock or performance shares. The Company’s Board of Directors has authorized up to 800,000 shares for repurchase under this program, and of this amount, 405,916 shares remain available for repurchase as of March 31, 2007. As of March 31, 2007, a total of 3,173,484 shares have been repurchased at a cost of approximately $23.5 million under both repurchase programs.
Liquidity
     The Company’s primary sources of funds for working capital and growth of the business, including capital expenditures and acquisitions, consist of net cash flows from operating activities and access to available credit facilities.
     The Company’s primary source of debt funding is its 2005 amended and restated credit agreement (the “2005 Credit Agreement”). The 2005 Credit Agreement provides the Company with access to senior secured credit facilities, including a Term Loan in the original principal amount of $380.0 million, and a $225.0 million Revolving Line of Credit.
     The Term Loan has a final maturity of July 1, 2010 and the outstanding principal balance at March 31, 2007 was $141.0 million. The Term Loan requires quarterly principal payments aggregating approximately $16.1 million for the remainder of 2007 and $32.2 million, $56.4 million, and $36.3 million in 2008, 2009 and 2010, respectively.
     The Revolving Line of Credit matures on July 1, 2010. Loans under this facility may be denominated in U.S. dollars or several foreign currencies and may be borrowed by the Company or two of its foreign subsidiaries as outlined in the 2005 Credit Agreement. On March 31, 2007, the Revolving Line of Credit had an outstanding principal balance of $95.5 million, leaving $129.5 million available for letters of credit or for future use, subject to the terms of the Revolving Line of Credit.

Table of Contents

     The interest rates applicable to loans under the 2005 Credit Agreement are variable and will be, at the Company’s option, the prime rate plus an applicable margin or LIBOR plus an applicable margin. The applicable margin percentages are adjustable quarterly, based upon financial ratio guidelines defined in the 2005 Credit Agreement.
     The Company’s obligations under the 2005 Credit Agreement are guaranteed by the Company’s existing and future domestic subsidiaries, and are secured by a pledge of certain subsidiaries’ capital stock. The Company is subject to customary covenants regarding certain earnings, liquidity and capital ratios.
     Management currently expects the Company’s future cash flows to be sufficient to fund its scheduled debt service and provide required resources for working capital and capital investments for at least the next twelve months. The Company is proactively pursuing acquisition opportunities, but the size and timing of any future acquisitions and the related potential capital requirements cannot be predicted. In the event that suitable businesses are available for acquisition upon acceptable terms, the Company may obtain all or a portion of the necessary financing through the incurrence of additional long-term borrowings.
Contractual Obligations and Commitments
     The following table and accompanying disclosures summarize the Company’s significant contractual obligations at March 31, 2007 and the effect such obligations are expected to have on its liquidity and cash flow in future periods:

Table of Contents

 
(1)   Estimated interest payments for long-term debt were calculated as follows: for fixed-rate debt and term debt, interest was calculated based on applicable rates and payment dates; for variable-rate debt and/or non-term debt, interest rates and payment dates were estimated based on management’s determination of the most likely scenarios for each relevant debt instrument. Management expects to settle such interest payments with cash flows from operating activities and/or short-term borrowings.
 
(2)   Purchase obligations consist primarily of agreements to purchase inventory or services made in the normal course of business to meet operational requirements. The purchase obligation amounts do not represent the entire anticipated purchases in the future, but represent only those items for which the Company is contractually obligated as of March 31, 2007. For this reason, these numbers will not provide a complete and reliable indicator of the Company’s expected future cash outflows.
     In accordance with SFAS No. 158, the total pension and other postretirement benefit liability recognized on the consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2006 was $101.2 million and represents the funded status of the Company’s defined benefit plans at the end of 2006. The total pension and other postretirement benefit liability is included in the consolidated balance sheet line items accrued liabilities, postretirement benefits other than pensions and other liabilities. This amount is impacted by, among other items, plan funding levels, changes in plan demographics and assumptions, and investment return on plan assets. Because this liability does not represent expected liquidity needs, the Company did not include this amount in the “Contractual Cash Obligations” table above.
     The Company funds its U.S. qualified pension plans in accordance with the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 regulations for the minimum annual required contribution and IRS regulations for the maximum annual allowable tax deduction. The Company is committed to making the required minimum contributions and expects to contribute a total of approximately $1.0 million to its U.S. qualified pension plans during 2007. Furthermore, the Company expects to contribute a total of approximately $2.4 million to the U.S. postretirement health care benefit plan during 2007. Future contributions are dependent upon various factors including benefit payment experience and changes, if any, to current funding requirements. Therefore, no amounts were included as contractual cash obligations in the above table. The Company generally expects to fund all future contributions with cash flows from operating activities.
     The Company’s non-U.S. pension plans are funded in accordance with local laws and income tax regulations. The Company expects to contribute a total of approximately $21.0 million to its non-U.S. qualified pension plans during 2007. No amounts have been included in the “Contractual Cash Obligations” table due to the same reasons noted above.
     Disclosure of amounts in the above table regarding expected benefit payments in future years for the Company’s pension plans and other postretirement benefit plans cannot be properly reflected due to the ongoing nature of the obligations of these plans. However, in order to inform the reader about expected benefit payments for these plans over the next several years, the Company anticipates annual benefit payments to be in the range of approximately $8.0 million to $9.0 million for the U.S. plans and $5.0 million to $6.0 million for the non-U.S. plans in 2007 and to remain at or near these annual levels for the next several years.
     Net deferred income tax liabilities were $47.3 million as of March 31, 2007. This amount is not included in the “Contractual Cash Obligations” table because the Company believes this presentation would not be meaningful. Deferred income tax liabilities are calculated based on temporary differences between the tax basis of assets and liabilities and their book basis, which will result in taxable amounts in future years when the book basis is settled. The results of these calculations do not have a direct connection with the amount of cash taxes to be paid in any future periods. As a result, scheduling deferred income tax liabilities as payments due by period could be misleading because this scheduling would not relate to liquidity needs.

     In the normal course of business, the Company or its subsidiaries may sometimes be required to provide surety bonds, standby letters of credit or similar instruments to guarantee performance of contractual or legal obligations. As of March 31, 2007, the Company had $49.3 million in such instruments outstanding and had pledged $2.3 million of cash to the issuing financial institutions as collateral for such instruments.
Contingencies
     The Company is a party to various legal proceedings, lawsuits and administrative actions, which are of an ordinary or routine nature. In addition, due to the bankruptcies of several asbestos manufacturers and other primary defendants, among other things, the Company has been named as a defendant in a number of asbestos personal injury lawsuits. The Company has also been named as a defendant in a number of silicosis personal injury lawsuits. The plaintiffs in these suits allege exposure to asbestos or silica from multiple sources and typically the Company is one of approximately 25 or more named defendants. In the Company’s experience to date, the substantial majority of the plaintiffs have not suffered an injury for which the Company bears responsibility.
     Predecessors to the Company sometimes manufactured, distributed and/or sold products allegedly at issue in the pending asbestos and silicosis litigation lawsuits (the “Products”). However, neither the Company nor its predecessors ever mined, manufactured, mixed, produced or distributed asbestos fiber or silica sand, the materials that allegedly caused the injury underlying the lawsuits. Moreover, the asbestos-containing components of the Products were enclosed within the subject Products.
     The Company has entered into a series of cost-sharing agreements with multiple insurance companies to secure coverage for asbestos and silicosis lawsuits. The Company also believes some of the potential liabilities regarding these lawsuits are covered by indemnity agreements with other parties. The Company’s uninsured settlement payments for past asbestos and silicosis lawsuits have been immaterial.
     The Company believes that the pending and future asbestos and silicosis lawsuits will not, in the aggregate, have a material adverse effect on its consolidated financial position, results of operations or liquidity, based on: the Company’s anticipated insurance and indemnification rights to address the risks of such matters; the limited potential asbestos exposure from the components described above; the Company’s experience that the vast majority of plaintiffs are not impaired with a disease attributable to alleged exposure to asbestos or silica from or relating to the Products or for which the Company otherwise bears responsibility; various potential defenses available to the Company with respect to such matters; and the Company’s prior disposition of comparable matters. However, due to inherent uncertainties of litigation and because future developments, including, without limitation, potential insolvencies of insurance companies or other defendants, could cause a different outcome, there can be no assurance that the resolution of pending or future lawsuits will not have a material adverse effect on its consolidated financial position, results of operations or liquidity.
     The Company has been identified as a potentially responsible party (“PRP”) with respect to several sites designated for cleanup under federal “Superfund” or similar state laws, which impose liability for cleanup of certain waste sites and for related natural resource damages.

-32-


Table of Contents

Persons potentially liable for such costs and damages generally include the site owner or operator and persons that disposed or arranged for the disposal of hazardous substances found at those sites. Although these laws impose joint and several liability, in application, the PRPs typically allocate the investigation and cleanup costs based upon the volume of waste contributed by each PRP. Based on currently available information, the Company was only a small contributor to these waste sites, and the Company has, or is attempting to negotiate, de minimis settlements for their cleanup. The cleanup of the remaining sites is substantially complete and the Company’s future obligations entail a share of the sites’ ongoing operating and maintenance expense.
     The Company is also addressing three on-site cleanups for which it is the primary responsible party. Two of these cleanup sites are in the operation and maintenance stage and the third is in the implementation stage. The Company is also participating in a voluntary clean-up program with other PRPs on a fourth site which is in the assessment stage. Based on currently available information, the Company does not anticipate that any of these sites will result in material additional costs beyond those already accrued on its balance sheet.
     The Company has an accrued liability on its balance sheet to the extent costs are known or can be estimated for its remaining financial obligations for these matters. Based upon consideration of currently available information, the Company does not anticipate any materially adverse effect on its results of operations, financial condition, liquidity or competitive position as a result of compliance with federal, state, local or foreign environmental laws or regulations, or cleanup costs relating to the sites discussed above.
Changes in Accounting Principles and Effects of New Accounting Pronouncements
     In June 2006, the FASB issued FASB Interpretation No. 48, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes – an interpretation of FASB Statement No. 109” (“FIN 48”), which prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. FIN 48 also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition. FIN 48 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2006 and was adopted by the Company in the first quarter of 2007. See Note 3, “Income Taxes” in the “Notes to Consolidated Financial Statement” for a discussion of the effect of adoption of FIN 48 on the Company’s financial statements.
     In June 2006, the Emerging Issues Task Force (“EITF”) reached a consensus on the income statement presentation of various types of taxes. The new guidance, Emerging Issues Task Force Issue 06-3 “How Taxes Collected from Customers and Remitted to Governmental Authorities Should Be Presented in the Income Statement (That Is, Gross versus Net Presentation)” (“EITF 06-3”) applies to any tax assessed by a governmental authority that is directly imposed on a revenue-producing transaction between a seller and a customer and may include, but is not limited to, sales, use, value added, and some excise taxes. The presentation of taxes within the scope of this issue on either a gross (included in revenues and costs) or a net (excluded from revenues) basis is an accounting policy decision that should be disclosed pursuant to APB Opinion No. 22, “Disclosure of Accounting Policies.” The EITF’s decision on gross versus net presentation requires that any such taxes reported on a gross basis be disclosed on an aggregate basis in interim and annual financial statements, for each period for which an income statement is presented, if those amounts are significant. The Company adopted EITF 06-3 effective January 1, 2007. The Company reports revenues net of taxes within the scope of EITF 06-3 and, accordingly, adoption of this issue had no effect on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

     In September 2006, the FASB issued SFAS No. 157, “Fair Value Measurements” (“SFAS No. 157”), which defines fair value, establishes a framework for using fair value to measure assets and liabilities, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. SFAS No. 157 applies whenever other statements require or permit assets or liabilities to be measured at fair value. This statement is effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007. The Company is currently evaluating the impact that the adoption of SFAS No. 157 will have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosure requirements.
     In September 2006, the FASB issued SFAS No. 158, “Employers’ Accounting for Defined Benefit Pension and Other Postretirement Plans – an amendment of FASB Statements No. 87, 88, 106 and 132(R)” (“SFAS No. 158”), which requires companies to recognize a net liability or asset and an offsetting adjustment to accumulated other comprehensive income, net of tax, to report the funded status of defined benefit pension and other postretirement benefit plans. Additionally, this statement requires companies to measure the fair value of plan assets and benefit obligations as of the date of the fiscal year-end balance sheet. The Company was in compliance with this requirement at December 31, 2006. The Company adopted the recognition provisions of SFAS No. 158 effective December 31, 2006.
     In February 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No. 159, “The Fair Value Option for Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities” (“SFAS No. 159”), which permits all entities to elect to measure eligible financial instruments at fair value. Additionally, this statement establishes presentation and disclosure requirements designed to facilitate comparisons between entities that choose different measurement attributes for similar types of assets and liabilities. This statement is effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007, with early adoption permitted for an entity that has also elected to apply the provisions of SFAS No. 157. The Company is currently evaluating the impact the adoption of SFAS No. 159 will have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosure requirements.
Critical Accounting Policies
     Management has evaluated the accounting policies used in the preparation of the Company’s financial statements and related notes and believes those policies to be reasonable and appropriate. Certain of these accounting policies require the application of significant judgment by management in selecting appropriate assumptions for calculating financial estimates. By their nature, these judgments are subject to an inherent degree of uncertainty. These judgments are based on historical experience, trends in the industry, information provided by customers and information available from other outside sources, as appropriate. The most significant areas involving management judgments and estimates may be found in the Company’s 2006 Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed on March 1, 2007, in the Critical Accounting Policies section of Management’s Discussion and Analysis and in Note 1, “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies” in the “Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements.”
Cautionary Statements Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
     All of the statements in “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations”, other than historical facts, are forward-looking statements made in reliance upon the safe harbor of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including, without limitation,

statements made under the caption “Outlook.” As a general matter, forward-looking statements are those focused upon anticipated events or trends, expectations, and beliefs relating to matters that are not historical in nature. Such forward-looking statements are subject to uncertainties and factors relating to the Company’s operations and business environment, all of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond the control of the Company. These uncertainties and factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those matters expressed in or implied by such forward-looking statements.
     The following uncertainties and factors, among others, including those set forth under “Risk Factors” in our Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2006, could affect future performance and cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in or implied by forward-looking statements: (1) the Company’s exposure to economic downturns and market cycles, particularly the level of oil and natural gas prices and oil and natural gas drilling production, which affect demand for Company’s petroleum products, and industrial production and manufacturing capacity utilization rates, which affect demand for the Company’s compressor and vacuum products; (2) the risks of large or rapid increases in raw material costs or substantial decreases in their availability, and the Company’s dependence on particular suppliers, particularly iron casting and other metal suppliers; (3) the risks associated with intense competition in the Company’s markets, particularly the pricing of the Company’s products; (4) the ability to effectively integrate acquisitions, including product and manufacturing rationalization initiatives, and realize anticipated cost savings, synergies and revenue enhancements; (5) the ability to attract and retain quality executive management and other key personnel; (6) the ability to continue to identify and complete other strategic acquisitions and effectively integrate such acquisitions to achieve desired financial benefits; (7) economic, political and other risks associated with the Company’s international sales and operations, including changes in currency exchange rates (primarily between the U.S. dollar, the Euro, the British pound and the Chinese yuan); (8) the risks associated with potential product liability and warranty claims due to the nature of the Company’s products; (9) the risks associated with environmental compliance costs and liabilities; (10) the risks associated with pending asbestos and silicosis personal injury lawsuits; (11) risks associated with the Company’s indebtedness and changes in the availability or costs of new financing to support the Company’s operations and future investments; (12) the risks associated with enforcing the Company’s intellectual property rights and defending against potential intellectual property claims; (13) the ability to avoid employee work stoppages and other labor difficulties; (14) changes in discount rates used for actuarial assumptions in pension and other postretirement obligation and expense calculations and market performance of pension plan assets; and (15) the risk of possible future charges if the Company determines that the value of goodwill and other intangible assets, representing a significant portion of its total assets, is impaired. The Company does not undertake, and hereby disclaims, any duty to update these forward-looking statements, although its situation and circumstances may change in the future.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
     The Company is exposed to market risk related to changes in interest rates, as well as European and other foreign currency exchange rates, and selectively uses derivative financial instruments, including forwards and swaps, to manage these risks. The Company does not hold derivatives for trading purposes. The value of market-risk sensitive derivatives and other financial instruments is subject to change as a result of movements in market rates and prices. Sensitivity analysis is one technique used to evaluate these impacts. A significant amount of the Company’s net income is earned in foreign currencies. Therefore, a strengthening in the U.S. dollar across relevant foreign currencies, principally the Euro, British pound and Chinese yuan, would have a corresponding negative impact on the Company’s future earnings.
     All derivative instruments are reported on the balance sheet at fair value. For each derivative instrument designated as a fair value hedge, the gain or loss on the derivative and the offsetting loss or gain on the hedged asset, liability or firm commitment are recognized immediately in earnings. For each derivative instrument designated as a cash flow hedge, the effective portion of the gain or loss on the derivative is reported as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income and reclassified into earnings in the same period that the hedged transaction affects earnings. Currency fluctuations on non-U.S. dollar borrowings that have been designated as hedges on the Company’s net investments in foreign operations are included in other comprehensive income.
     To effectively manage interest costs, the Company uses interest rate swaps as cash flow hedges of variable-rate interest payments. Including the impact of interest rate swaps outstanding, the interest rates on approximately 54% of the Company’s total borrowings were effectively fixed as of March 31, 2007. Also as part of its hedging strategy, the Company uses purchased option and forward exchange contracts from time to time to minimize the impact of currency fluctuations on transactions, cash flows and firm commitments. These contracts for the sale or purchase of European and other currencies generally mature within one year.
Item 4. Controls and Procedures
     The Company’s management carried out an evaluation, as required by Rule 13a-15(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”), with the participation of the Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer and the Vice President, Finance and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures, as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based upon this evaluation, the Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer and Vice President, Finance and Chief Financial Officer concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, such that the information relating to the Company and its consolidated subsidiaries required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act (i) is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported, within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms, and (ii) is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including its principal executive and financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
     In addition, the Company’s management carried out an evaluation, as required by Rule 13a-15(d) of the Exchange Act, with the participation of the Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer and the Vice President, Finance and Chief Financial Officer, of changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Based on this evaluation, the Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer and the Vice President, Finance and Chief Financial Officer concluded that there were no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the quarter ended March 31, 2007 that have materially affected, or that are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
     In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, the Company’s management recognized that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed, can provide only reasonable

assurances of achieving the desired control objectives and management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures.
