Item 1.01.      Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.

New Credit Facilities

        In connection with the Thomas Industries acquisition, Gardner Denver, Inc. (the “Company”) is entering into an amended and restated credit agreement with a syndicate of lenders arranged by J.P. Morgan Securities, Inc. and Bear, Stearns & Co. Inc. Upon satisfaction of conditions to funding, including completion of the Thomas Industries acquisition and other customary closing conditions, the amended and restated credit agreement will supersede the Company’s existing credit agreement. The amended and restated credit agreement and the commitments thereunder will terminate in the event the conditions to funding set forth therein are not satisfied on or before December 15, 2005.

        The amended and restated credit facilities consists of (i) a $225.0 million revolving credit facility maturing September 1, 2009, including $100.0 million available for borrowings by, and letters of credit issued for, up to two non-U.S. foreign subsidiaries, $40.0 million available for letters of credit issued for the Company, $150.0 million available in Canadian dollars, euros or Pounds Sterling and $20.0 million available for swingline loans, and (ii) a $380.0 million term facility maturing five years from the borrowing date. In addition, the amended and restated credit agreement provides for a possible increase in the revolving credit facility of up to $100 million subject to the consent of participating lenders.

        All borrowings and letters of credit under the amended and restated credit facilities will be subject to the satisfaction of customary conditions, including absence of a default and accuracy of representations and warranties.

        Funds borrowed pursuant to the term loan will be used to finance the Thomas Industries acquisition and to retire the outstanding balance of approximately $146 million under the Company’s existing senior secured term loan. The remaining amounts available under the amended and restated credit agreement may be used for working capital and for general corporate purposes.

        The interest rates per annum applicable to loans under the amended and restated credit facilities will be, at the Company’s option, either a base rate plus an applicable margin percentage or a Eurocurrency rate plus an applicable margin.

        The base rate will be the greater of (i) the prime rate or (ii) one-half of 1% over the weighted average of rates on overnight federal funds as published by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The Eurocurrency rate will be LIBOR. The Company expects that the applicable margin percentage over LIBOR will initially be no lower than a percentage per annum equal to 1.75% with respect to the term loan and 1.625% with respect to revolving loans. After the Company’s delivery of its financial statements and compliance certificate for each fiscal quarter, the applicable margin percentages will be subject to adjustments based upon the ratio of the Company’s consolidated total debt to consolidated adjusted EBITDA (as defined in the amended and restated credit facility) being within certain defined ranges.

2



        The amended and restated credit facilities will be guaranteed by the Company’s existing and future domestic subsidiaries. The amended and restated credit facilities will be secured by a pledge of the capital stock of each of the Company’s existing and future material domestic subsidiaries as well as 65% of the capital stock of each of the Company’s existing and future first-tier material foreign subsidiaries.

        The amended and restated credit facilities include customary covenants that are substantially similar to those contained in the Company’s existing credit facilities. Subject to certain exceptions, these covenants will restrict or limit the ability of the Company and its subsidiaries to, among other things: incur liens; engage in mergers, consolidations and sales of assets; incur additional indebtedness; pay dividends and redeem stock; make investments (including loans and advances); enter into transactions with affiliates, make capital expenditures and incur rental obligations. In addition, the amended and restated credit facilities will require the Company to maintain compliance with certain financial ratios on a quarterly basis. These include: a maximum total leverage ratio test, a minimum interest coverage ratio test and a minimum consolidated net worth test. These financial covenants will become more restrictive over time.

        The amended and restated credit facilities contain customary events of default, including upon a change of control. If an event of default occurs, the lenders under the Company’s amended and restated credit facilities will be entitled to take various actions, including the acceleration of amounts due under the amended and restated credit facilities.

Relationship to Lenders

        With respect to the lenders under the new credit agreement and the existing credit agreement, we have or may have had customary banking relationships based on the provision of a variety of financial services, including investment banking, underwriting, lending, commercial banking and other advisory services.

*     *     *     *     *

        The foregoing description of the new credit agreement and the existing credit agreement is only a summary of certain terms and conditions of these agreements and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the agreements themselves, which have been filed as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2 hereto and which are incorporated by reference herein.

(the “Company”) issued a press release announcing that it had closed on the sale of an additional 658,000 shares of its common stock pursuant to the over-allotment option.
