Environmental Matters

The Company is subject to environmental laws and regulations concerning emissions to the air, discharges to waterways and generation, handling, storage, transportation, treatment and disposal of waste and hazardous materials.

The Company is also subject to laws and regulations that can require the remediation of contamination that exists at current or former facilities. In addition, the Company is subject to other federal and state laws and regulations regarding health and safety matters. Each of the Company’s production facilities has permits and licenses allowing and regulating air emissions and water discharges. While the Company believes that at the present time its production facilities are in substantial compliance with environmental laws and regulations, these laws and regulations are constantly evolving and it is impossible to predict whether compliance with these laws and regulations may have a material adverse effect on the Company in the future.

MTD Automotive, at its facilities in Parma and Valley City, Ohio, has engaged in industrial manufacturing operations since 1946 and 1968, respectively, during which time various hazardous substances have been handled at each facility. As a consequence of these historic operations, the potential for liability relating to contamination of soil and groundwater may exist at the Parma facility, which the Company leases from MTD Products Inc, and the Valley City facility, which the Company owns. Although the Company could be liable for cleanup costs at these facilities, MTD Products Inc, a subsidiary of MTD Holdings Inc, is contractually obligated to indemnify the Company against any such costs arising as a result of operations prior to the Company’s acquisition of the MTD Automotive business.

ISO 14001 is a voluntary international standard issued in September 1996 by the International Organization for Standardization. ISO 14001 identifies the elements of an Environmental Management System (“EMS”) necessary for an organization to effectively manage its impact on the environment. The ultimate objective of the standard is to integrate the EMS with overall business management processes and systems so that environmental considerations are a routine part of business decisions. As of October 31, 2003, all of the Company’s facilities were ISO 14001 certified. The Company has completed the certification process at each of its ten manufacturing facilities for the latest and highest international quality standard for the automotive industry, ISO/TS 16949:2002. The Company believes this certification is a market requirement for doing business in the automotive industry.
