As previously announced, the Company is holding its Investor Day conference on Monday, December 8, 2014 in New York, NY. The presentations begin at 1:00 p.m. EST.

Dover undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statement, except as required by law.
The information in this report (including Exhibit 99.1) shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Exchange Act, or otherwise subject to the liability of that Section, and shall not be incorporated by reference into any registration statement or other document filed by Dover under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
