Terex
has determined that it will be exiting the remaining roadbuilding product lines
that it manufactures in Oklahoma City, and has taken charges in connection with
the business assets being sold and the remaining Oklahoma City roadbuilding
assets to reflect the likely realizable value in a transaction. The amount of
these charges that will impact the fourth quarter 2012 results, when reported,
is approximately $15 million. Terex will continue manufacturing operations in
Oklahoma City for its product lines not affected by this transaction.


Ron
DeFeo, Terex Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “The decision to
exit most of our roadbuilding product lines is another step in the
repositioning of Terex. We continue to focus on improving our construction
segment performance as well as the Company’s overall returns on invested
capital, and this transaction is part of that process.”
