Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition
On April 25, 2007, Gardner Denver, Inc. (the Company) issued a press release announcing the Companys results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2007 and guidance for diluted earnings per share for the second quarter and total year 2007 (the Press Release). A copy of the Press Release is furnished with this report as Exhibit 99.1 to this Form 8-K and incorporated by reference herein.
Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure
Effective January 1, 2007, the Companys presentation of certain expenses within its consolidated statements of operations has been changed. Depreciation expense recorded in connection with the manufacture of the Companys products sold during each reporting period is included in the caption Cost of sales. Depreciation and amortization expense not associated with the manufacture of the Companys products is included in the caption Selling and administrative expenses. Depreciation and amortization expense was 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. Unaudited reclassified consolidated statements of operations and the amounts reclassified for the four quarterly periods of the year ended December 31, 2006, and the years ended December 31, 2006, 2005 and 2004, are furnished as Exhibit 99.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference herein.
Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
