Item 8.01 Other Events.
     On December 18, 2009, Flowserve Corporation, a New York corporation (the “Company”), executed a stipulation of settlement among the other defendants named therein and the lead plaintiffs to settle the pending securities class action lawsuit originally filed in 2003, which the Company has previously disclosed in its public filings. The settlement is subject to various customary conditions, including preliminary approval by the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas, notice to class members, class member opt-out thresholds, a final hearing and final approval by the District Court.
     The Company will contribute $13.5 million to the $55 million total conditional settlement amount. The Company’s insurance carriers will additionally contribute $40 million to the conditional settlement amount, with another defendant contributing the balance. The Company’s contribution is within the accrued reserve previously established by the Company for this matter in the Company’s previously reported financial results in 2009.
