Notes on Orders

Orders provide near-term perspective on the company's outlook, particularly
when viewed in the context of prior and future quarterly order rates. However,
orders are not in themselves an indication of future performance. All
comparisons are at constant currency exchange rates, with the prior year
restated to the current-year rates. All exclude acquisitions until they can be
reflected in both the numerator and denominator. Aerospace comparisons are
rolling 12-month average computations. The total Parker orders number is
derived from a weighted average of the year-over-year quarterly percent change
in orders for Diversified Industrial North America and Diversified Industrial
International, and the year-over-year 12-month rolling average of orders for
the Aerospace Systems segment.

Forward-Looking Statements

Forward-looking statements contained in this and other written and oral
reports are made based on known events and circumstances at the time of
release, and as such, are subject in the future to unforeseen uncertainties
and risks. All statements regarding future performance, earnings projections,
events or developments are forward-looking statements. It is possible that the
future performance and earnings projections of the company, including its
individual segments, may differ materially from current expectations,
depending on economic conditions within its mobile, industrial and aerospace
markets, and the company's ability to maintain and achieve anticipated
benefits associated with announced realignment activities, strategic
initiatives to improve operating margins, actions taken to combat the effects
of the current economic environment, and growth, innovation and global
diversification initiatives. A change in the economic conditions in individual
markets may have a particularly volatile effect on segment performance. Among
other factors which may affect future performance are: changes in business
relationships with and purchases by or from major customers, suppliers or
distributors, including delays or cancellations in shipments, disputes
regarding contract terms or significant changes in financial condition,
changes in contract cost and revenue estimates for new development programs
and changes in product mix; ability to identify acceptable strategic
acquisition targets; uncertainties surrounding timing, successful completion
or integration of acquisitions and similar transactions; the determination to
undertake business realignment activities and the expected costs thereof and,
if undertaken, the ability to complete such activities and realize the
anticipated cost savings from such activities; the ability to realize
anticipated benefits of the consolidation of the Climate and Industrial
Controls Group; threats associated with and efforts to combat terrorism;
uncertainties surrounding the ultimate resolution of outstanding legal
proceedings, including the outcome of any appeals; competitive market
conditions and resulting effects on sales and pricing; increases in raw
material costs that cannot be recovered in product pricing; the company's
ability to manage costs related to insurance and employee retirement and
health care benefits; and global economic factors, including manufacturing
activity, air travel trends, currency exchange rates, difficulties entering
new markets and general economic conditions such as inflation, deflation,
interest rates and credit availability. The company makes these statements as
of the date of this disclosure, and undertakes no obligation to update them
unless otherwise required by law.
