American Power Conversion'S EUROPEAN INVENTORY DAMAGED

 ROTTERDAM, The Netherlands, Feb. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Officials at American Power Conversion said today that a weekend fire in a third- party shared warehouse in the Netherlands destroyed a limited amount of the company's European inventory.
 "The amount of units lost represents less than 15 percent of our monthly production," said Rodger Dowdell, chairman and president of APC.
 "We expect no effect on our domestic product availability and a minimal effect on European fulfillment, as there are several containers of product already on-site which had yet to be loaded into the warehouse, and several more currently in transit," he said.
 "We were fortunate that our offices were undamaged, and we understand that no one was injured," said Dowdell.
 Dowdell said the company has insurance coverage for the product lost, as well as business interruption insurance.
 The fire damaged the inventories of three companies sharing the warehouse, said Dowdell. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
 American Power Conversion is the market share leader in Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) and software for networks and similar mission-critical applications. Product lines include the Back- UPS, Smart-UPS, PowerChute software, Line-R high-performance power conditioners and SurgeArrest surge suppressors.
