(1) Adjusted DEPS is a financial measure that is not in accordance
with GAAP. Gardner Denver believes the non-GAAP financial measure of
Adjusted DEPS provides important supplemental information to both
management and investors regarding financial and business trends used
in assessing its results of operations. Gardner Denver believes
excluding the specified items from DEPS provides a more meaningful
comparison to the corresponding reported periods and internal budgets
and forecasts, assists investors in performing analysis that is
consistent with financial models developed by investors and research
analysts, provides management with a more relevant measurement of
operating performance and is more useful in assessing management
performance.
