                          business of Promec and its subsidiaries in Mexico. Promec

                          heavy duty applications for the OE and Aftermarket businesses.

                          Aftermarket brand “Carpro”.

                          The planned acquisition includes a total of about 1,100 employees
                          in 4 production plants in Mexico, which are located in Aguascali-
