Form 8-K for DOVER CORP


24-Jan-2014

Temporary Suspension of Trading Under Registrant's Employee Benefit Plans, Financial S


Item 5.04 Temporary Suspension of Trading Under Registrant's Employee Benefit Plans.

As announced in May 2013, Dover Corporation ("Dover") is pursuing a plan to spin-off Knowles Corporation into a stand-alone, public company. This spin-off will cause certain changes to the Dover Stock Fund held in the Dover Corporation Retirement Savings Plan (the "Plan"). As a result of these changes, Plan participants and beneficiaries will be temporarily unable to exercise certain rights otherwise available under the Plan (the "blackout").

On January 24, 2014, Dover sent a notice (the "Blackout Notice") to its directors and its officers who are subject to Section 16 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended ("Section 16"), informing them that a blackout will be imposed. The blackout is expected to begin on February 24, 2014 and last 12 calendar days, with an expected end date of March 7, 2014.

Section 306(a) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and Regulation BTR (i.e., the Blackout Trading Restriction), promulgated by the U.S. Securities and Exchanged Commission, generally impose certain restrictions on trading by directors and executive officers in the event that 50% or more of an issuer's plan participants are so restricted.

During the blackout, subject to certain limited exemptions, directors and
Section 16 officers will be prohibited from directly or indirectly purchasing, selling, acquiring or transferring any Dover common stock or derivative security with respect to Dover common stock acquired in connection with their service or employment as a director or Section 16 officer of Dover.

Any inquiries about the blackout may be directed to:
RetirementPlans@dovercorp.com, or Dianne Purcell, Retirement Plan Manager, 3005 Highland Ave, Downers Grove, IL, 60515, 630-451-1540.

Attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated by reference is a copy of the Blackout Notice.



Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.

(d) Exhibits.

99.1 Blackout Notice, dated January 24, 2014, provided to directors and Section 16 officers of Dover.
