May 17, 2006

WESTPORT, Conn., May 17, 2006 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Terex Corporation (NYSE: TEX) today announced that it has filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2005 as well as its quarterly reports on Form 10-Q for the first, second and third quarters of 2005. Terex also confirmed 2005 revenues of $6.4 billion and announced net income of $188.5 million, or $3.69 per share, for 2005, as compared with 2004 revenues of $5.0 billion and net income of $324.1 million, or $6.34 per share(1). Excluding the impact of special items, net income was $208.7 million, or $4.08 per share, in 2005(2), compared to net income of $123.1 million, or $2.41 per share, for 2004. The tax rate for 2005 was 33.1%, excluding $5.5 million of tax expense related to the repatriation of cash in accordance with the American Jobs Creation Act, which has been identified as a special item. Stockholders' equity as of December 31, 2005 was $1,161 million, and the Company's return on invested capital(3) for 2005 was 21.5%.

Additionally, the Company announced that it will be holding the Annual Meeting of Stockholders of Terex Corporation on Wednesday, May 31, 2006, at 10:00 a.m., local time, at the corporate offices of Terex Corporation, located at 500 Post Road East, Westport, Connecticut.

(1) As previously reported, Terex's 2003 net income included a valuation allowance of $200.7 million reducing its U.S. deferred tax assets, negatively impacting net income. This $200.7 million expense was reversed and has a positive effect in the 2004 period, representing $3.93 per share of net income. The establishment of the valuation allowance and the reversal of the valuation allowance have each been treated as a special item in the respective year.

(2) Special items in 2005, net of tax, include charges for investigation costs associated with the Company's internal review ($5.7 million), the tax expense related to the repatriation of cash in accordance with the American Jobs Creation Act ($5.5 million), asset impairment charges in relation to the American Truck Company joint venture ($4.1 million), costs associated with lease terminations of certain former operating locations ($2.1 million), the write-down of notes receivable associated with previously sold businesses ($1.6 million), as well as charges related to various restructuring activities and asset impairment charges ($1.9 million), offset partially by the gain on the sale of a facility in the Czech Republic ($0.7 million).

(3) Return on invested capital (ROIC) is calculated as the trailing four quarters operating income, excluding special items, divided by the sum of the trailing four quarters average stockholders' equity and the trailing four quarter average net debt.
