Item 7.01.   Regulation FD Disclosure
          In April 2010, the Company announced the initiation of formal discussions with local work councils regarding a project to reorganize the Company’s European manufacturing operations. On June 25, 2010, the Company made significant progress in negotiations with the local work councils, and the Company now estimates the cash restructuring costs associated with this project will total approximately $(17) million, an increase from the previously-announced estimate of approximately $(15) million. These costs relate mainly to workforce reductions and some additional cost for manufacturing consolidation and production moves. The Company expects to incur approximately $(11) million of restructuring costs related to this project in the second quarter of fiscal year 2011. The Company still anticipates annualized savings from these actions to be $7 to $8 million when fully implemented by the end of fiscal year 2011.
          Accordingly, the Company is updating its earnings guidance for the second quarter of fiscal year 2011. Based on the revised estimates, the Company now expects to report net income of $(0.03) to $0.01 per share for the second quarter of fiscal year 2011, including approximately $(15) million of pre-tax restructuring costs representing an $(11) million increase from the guidance the Company provided on June 21, 2010.
          The Company has updated its investor presentation and will make it available on the Company’s website at The Company uses this presentation from time to time when company executives interact with investors and analysts to discuss our business strategies and long-term goals.
