Businesswire is reporting that Terex Corporation has announced that it has received a revised non-binding proposal from Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science and Technology Co. to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Terex for $31.00 per share in cash. The proposal is conditioned on, among other things, receipt of U.S. and Chinese regulatory approval and Zoomlion shareholder approval. The Terex Board of Directors, in consultation with its legal and financial advisors, has determined to pursue negotiations of definitive terms with Zoomlion to ascertain whether it can obtain a binding proposal from Zoomlion which provides for a high degree of closing certainty. According to the company, there can be no assurance that a satisfactory proposal can be achieved.

The Terex Board of Directors has not changed its recommendation in support of the proposed combination with Konecranes. Until such time as Terex' existing agreement with Konecranes is terminated, Terex is prohibited from entering into an agreement with Zoomlion. Without agreement from Konecranes, Terex may not terminate its existing agreement unless and until Terex shareholders vote upon, and fail to approve, the Konecranes transaction, or Terex is otherwise entitled to terminate under its agreement with Konecranes.
