Flowserve Divests Tulsa Plant to Ruhrpumpen Inc.

04.01.2001

DALLAS, Jan. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Flowserve Corp. announced today the

divestiture of its Tulsa, Okla., plant to Ruhrpumpen Inc., a subsidiary of

Corporacion EG of Monterrey, Mexico, on Dec. 29, 2000. The company made the

required divestiture as part of an agreement with the U.S. Department of

Justice following Flowserve's acquisition of the Ingersoll-Dresser Pump Co.,

which the government approved in July 2000.

For the divestiture, Flowserve received about $5.3 million in cash, which

was used to reduce its indebtedness. The company also said it will incur a

pretax loss of about $3 million from the sale, which will be reflected as part

of its integration expense in the company's fourth quarter 2000 financial

results.

The divestiture also provides Ruhrpumpen an exclusive license to sell

eight different pump lines in the United States and Mexico, except for certain

specified customers, plus a non-exclusive license to sell these elsewhere.

Flowserve retained a non-exclusive license to otherwise manufacture and sell

these lines internationally, as well as the right to sell competing product

lines worldwide. In 2000, the licensed product lines generated, on a pro

forma basis, about $50 million of annual sales and about $3 million in

earnings before interest and taxes.

Oil refineries and power generation facilities typically use the pumps

involved in the divestiture.

Flowserve Corp. is one of the world's leading providers of industrial flow

management services. Operating in 30 countries, with pro forma 1999 sales of

$2.1 billion and more than 10,000 employees, the company produces engineered

pumps for the process industries, precision mechanical seals, automated and

manual quarter-turn valves, control valves and valve actuators, and provides a

range of related flow management services.
