In September 2010, Actuant announced plans to divest the European Electrical business which designs, manufactures and markets electrical sockets, switches and other tools and consumables predominately for the European Do-It-Yourself retail market. In conjunction with that announcement, the Company began reporting European Electrical as a discontinued operation and reclassified its historical financial results to remove European Electrical from continuing operations.

The completion of the divestiture will result in an after-tax charge of approximately $10 million which will be recorded in discontinued operations in the second quarter of fiscal 2011. Actuant will release its second quarter fiscal 2011 financial results on March 17, 2011.

Robert W. Baird & Co. served as Actuant's advisor for the transaction.
