The forward-looking statements included in this news release are based
on our current expectations, projections, estimates and assumptions.
These statements are only predictions, not guarantees. Such
forward-looking statements are subject to numerous risks and
uncertainties that are difficult to predict. These risks and
uncertainties may cause actual results to differ materially from what is
forecast in such forward-looking statements, and include, without
limitation, the following: a portion of our bookings may not lead to
completed sales, and our ability to convert bookings into revenues at
acceptable profit margins; changes in global economic conditions and the
potential for unexpected cancellations or delays of customer orders in
our reported backlog; our dependence on our customers' ability to make
required capital investment and maintenance expenditures; risks
associated with cost overruns on fixed-fee projects and in taking
customer orders for large complex custom engineered products; the
substantial dependence of our sales on the success of the oil and gas,
chemical, power generation and water management industries; the adverse
impact of volatile raw materials prices on our products and operating
margins; our ability to execute and realize the expected financial
benefits from our strategic manufacturing optimization and realignment
initiatives; economic, political and other risks associated with our
international operations, including military actions or trade embargoes
that could affect customer markets, particularly North African, Russian
and Middle Eastern markets and global oil and gas producers, and
non-compliance with U.S. export/re-export control, foreign corrupt
practice laws, economic sanctions and import laws and regulations;
increased aging and slower collection of receivables, particularly in
Latin America and other emerging markets; our exposure to fluctuations
in foreign currency exchange rates, particularly the Euro and British
pound and in hyperinflationary countries such as Venezuela; our
furnishing of products and services to nuclear power plant facilities
and other critical processes; potential adverse consequences resulting
from litigation to which we are a party, such as litigation involving
asbestos-containing material claims; a foreign government investigation
regarding our participation in the United Nations Oil-for-Food Program;
expectations regarding acquisitions and the integration of acquired
businesses; our relative geographical profitability and its impact on
our utilization of deferred tax assets, including foreign tax credits;
the potential adverse impact of an impairment in the carrying value of
goodwill or other intangible assets; our dependence upon third-party
suppliers whose failure to perform timely could adversely affect our
business operations; the highly competitive nature of the markets in
which we operate; environmental compliance costs and liabilities;
potential work stoppages and other labor matters; our inability to
protect our intellectual property in the U.S., as well as in foreign
countries; obligations under our defined benefit pension plans; risks
and potential liabilities associated with cyber security threats; our
inability to execute and realize the expected financial benefits of our
strategic manufacturing optimization and other cost-saving initiatives;
our internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect
misstatements because of its inherent limitations, including the
possibility of human error, the circumvention or overriding of controls,
or fraud; the recording of increased deferred tax asset valuation
allowances in the future or the impact of tax law changes on such
deferred tax assets could affect our operating results; if we are not
able to successfully execute and realize the expected financial benefits
from our strategic realignment and other cost-saving initiatives, our
business could be adversely affected; ineffective internal controls
could impact the accuracy and timely reporting of our business and
financial results; and other factors described from time to time in our
filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. All forward-looking
statements included in this news release are based on information
available to us on the date hereof, and we assume no obligation to
update any forward-looking statement.

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S.
generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). However, management
believes that non-GAAP financial measures which exclude certain
non-recurring items present additional useful comparisons between
current results and results in prior operating periods, providing
investors with a clearer view of the underlying trends of the business.
Management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making
financial, operating, planning and compensation decisions and in
evaluating the Company's performance. Throughout our materials we refer
to non-GAAP measures as "Adjusted." Non-GAAP financial measures, which
may be inconsistent with similarly captioned measures presented by other
companies, should be viewed in addition to, and not as a substitute for,
the Company's reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP.
