Flowserve Delays 2004 Form 10-K Filing And Restatement Completion, Cites Review Of Non-Cash Foreign Deferred Tax Accounting.

DALLAS -- Following an extensive review with its independent auditors of its non-cash foreign deferred tax accounting, Flowserve Corp. (NYSE: FLS) today announced that it will delay its planned filing date for its 2004 Form 10-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and its planned announcements today, including 2005 bookings, 2004 earnings, and its restatement of its financial statements for 2000 through the first quarter of 2004.

The company said that apart from determining the effect of this remaining technical tax matter, it has completed finalizing its restatement and preparing its 2004 Form 10-K filing. The delay, therefore, is expected to be brief.

This deferred tax accounting action has a non-cash effect during the restatement period. This decision does not affect any actual tax payments or future cash liabilities to the IRS, state or foreign tax authorities, the company said. Further, this deferred tax accounting calculation has no applicability to the previously announced resolution of its IRS tax audit for the years 1999 through 2001, nor does it have any applicability to the company's potential cash liabilities regarding any future or ongoing federal, state or foreign tax audit. This deferred tax accounting calculation should have no impact on the company's normal business operations going forward.

The company is still calculating the impact of this non-cash deferred tax adjustment on its financial statements to be included in its 2004 Form 10-K filing, which may increase the cumulative reduction in net income from the restatement. However, it will have no impact on the company's pretax earnings during this period.

This review of deferred tax accounting arises from the technical requirements of Accounting Principles Board Opinion 23. This accounting principle permits companies to exclude unremitted earnings from foreign operations from its calculation of U.S. deferred taxes if certain specified technical criteria are met. If not, companies must calculate their financial statement tax provision for unremitted foreign earnings at the U.S. rate. The company, after careful consultation with its independent auditors over an extended period, late last week reconsidered its earlier view that the company had met in all material respects the APB 23 requirements in 2001, and, accordingly, is determining the appropriate deferred tax adjustment required at that date and later periods.

The company also said it has postponed today's planned conference call so that the rescheduled call can fully address all aspects of the 2004 Form 10-K filing, restatement and related matters. Details of the rescheduled conference call will be announced in the next few days.
