Statement of Chief Executive Officer:

CEO and Chairman, Maurice Taylor commented, “This past year was a record year in every way. We added to our global footprint with the purchase of Titan Europe and Planet Group located in Perth, Australia. Both additions will expand our business opportunities in the agriculture and construction/earthmoving markets. The fourth quarter had two negative problems: One, the construction slow down in Europe and its effect on the newly acquired Titan Europe Business, and the extra costs due to the start up of the wheel facility resulting from the earthquake in Italy. Insurance claims should cover the cost of the damage sustained and we have seen a strengthening of the market for the steel track business.
