Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
     On July 20, 2008, Gardner Denver, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into separate share purchase agreements with the holders of 100% of the outstanding shares of CompAir Holdings Limited (“CompAir”), a leading global manufacturer of compressed air and gas solutions. The terms of the share purchase agreements place the total enterprise value of CompAir at £197.5 million, or approximately $395 million, to be paid through a combination of cash payments to the CompAir shareholders and the assumption of existing CompAir debt.
     CompAir, headquartered in Redditch, U.K., manufactures an extensive range of products, including oil-injected and oil-free rotary screw compressors, piston compressors, portable rotary screw compressors, rotary vane compressors, and high pressure reciprocating compressors. These products are used in oil and gas exploration, industrial gases and breathing air, mining and construction, power plants, general industrial applications, OEM applications such as snow-making and mass transit, and in naval, marine and defense market segments.
     CompAir serves a diversified, global customer base of distributors, OEMs, end users, and engineered system customers. CompAir addresses its global markets through a network of wholly-owned sales offices, local sales and service branches, and a number of independent distributors and agents worldwide. Its primary manufacturing facilities are located in Simmern, Germany, Ipswich and Redditch, U.K., Ocala, Florida, and Shanghai, China.
     To finance the acquisition, the Company will use excess available cash and new syndicated credit facilities. The form, terms and size of the debt financing are subject to prevailing market conditions. The transaction is subject to certain closing conditions, including the receipt of applicable regulatory approvals. The acquisition is not conditioned upon completion of financing.
     The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2008.
Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.
     On July 21, 2008, the Company issued a press release announcing that it had agreed to acquire 100% of the shares of CompAir. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
