WESTPORT, CT, March 1, 1999 - Terex Corporation (NYSE: TEX) today announced that it intends to issue approximately $100,000,000 principal amount of 8-7/8% Senior Subordinated Notes Due 2008. The new notes will have substantially the same terms as Terex's currently outstanding $150 million 8-7/8% Senior Subordinated Notes Due 2008. It is contemplated that the new notes will be combined with the currently outstanding notes into a single series after completion of the offering.
