Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year
Effective December 18, 2006, the Board of Directors amended and restated the Companys bylaws to change its fiscal year. Starting fiscal year 2007, the Companys fiscal year will end on the last Friday in October. Previously, the Company's fiscal year ended on the Saturday closest to October 31. The change was made in order to (1) optimize the Companys financial cut-off procedures tied to the SAP enterprise software system introduced at P&H Mining Equipment during fiscal year 2006 and (2) simplify references to its fiscal year end dates by eliminating the possibility of fiscal years ending in early November.
