DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., Dec.10, 2012 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --Dover Corporation
(NYSE:DOV) announced that it will share its strategy and financial
expectations for the next three years, including its full-year 2013 guidance,
at its annual Investor Day today in New York City. The Company will also
provide an update to its 2012 guidance, which will include the fourth quarter
impact of the Anthony acquisition as well as the impact from recently
discontinued operations.

Dover is initiating guidance of $5.05 to $5.35 for full-year 2013 earnings per
share from continuing operations ("EPS"). This EPS guidance is based on
full-year organic revenue growth of 3% to 5% and acquisition growth of 4%, for
full-year revenue growth of 7% to 9%.

Dover now expects full-year 2012 EPS to be $4.36 to $4.46, a $0.19 reduction
from the prior forecasted range. The majority of this adjustment is related
to a $0.18 reduction from discontinuing certain businesses serving the
electronic assembly and test markets, as previously announced. In addition,
this update includes a $0.02 reduction related to certain one-time costs
associated with the recent Anthony acquisition and $0.01 of accretion from
fourth quarter share repurchase activity.

presentations will be available live to all interested parties via webcast,
