Non-GAAP Measures and Other Items

Results of operations reflect continuing operations. All per share
amounts are on a fully diluted basis. A comprehensive review of the
quarterly financial performance is contained in the presentation that
will accompany the Company's earnings conference call.

In this press release, Terex refers to various GAAP (U.S. generally
accepted accounting principles) and non-GAAP financial measures. These
non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures
being disclosed by other companies. Terex believes that this non-GAAP
information is useful to understanding its operating results and the
ongoing performance of its underlying businesses.

The Company provides guidance on a non-GAAP basis as the Company cannot
predict with a reasonable degree of certainty the timing and magnitude
of future charges that would be included in the reported GAAP results.
