Other Events, Financial Statements and Exhibits


Item 8.01 Other Events.

On February 6, 2014, Dover Corporation ("Dover") issued a press release announcing that its board of directors formally approved the previously announced spin-off of certain of its communication technologies businesses through the distribution of 100% of the common stock of Knowles Corporation ("Knowles") held by Dover to its shareholders.

The board of directors of Dover also set the distribution ratio, record date, and distribution date for the spin-off.

The distribution to Dover's shareholders of record as of the close of business on February 19, 2014 (the "Record Date") is expected to occur after the close of trading on the New York Stock Exchange on February 28, 2014. In the distribution, each Dover shareholder as of the Record Date will receive one share of Knowles' common stock for every two shares of Dover common stock held as of the Record Date. Dover shareholders will receive cash in lieu of fractional shares of Knowles' common stock.

The spin-off remains subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions. Dover currently expects that all conditions to the spin-off will be satisfied on or prior to the distribution date for the spin-off.

The press release announcing certain details of the spin-off is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
