The company reported third quarter net income of $26.4 million, compared to net income of $48.3 million in the third quarter of 2004. Diluted earnings per share were $.37, compared to $.67 per share in the third quarter of 2004. Included in the third quarter 2005 reported results are restructuring charges of $.07 per share, manufacturing start-up and other one-time costs* of $.04 per share and the gain on the sale of the campus card systems business of $.18 per share. Excluding the impact of these items, diluted earnings per share in the third quarter would have been $.30 per share*, at the high end of the most recent guidance of $.25 to $.30 per share provided on September 21, 2005. As previously announced on July 5, 2005, the company sold its campus card systems division. As a result, the financial results from this business have been classified as a discontinued operation. Factors Contributing to Lower Third Quarter EPS On September 21, 2005, the company reduced its third quarter and full-year guidance. A number of factors contributed to lower earnings in the third quarter. Revenue was approximately $67 million lower than the original guidance provided on July 27, 2005. Approximately $50 million of the shortfall occurred in the global financial self-service business. An additional $12 million resulted from delayed deliveries and reduced revenue as a result of Hurricane Katrina, which includes $10 million of election systems equipment that had been scheduled for the Gulf region. The remainder of the revenue shortfall occurred in the security solutions business, resulting from softness in the North America bank market. Lower-than-expected demand, primarily in the more profitable U.S. regional bank segment, and customer installation delays resulted in lower-than-expected revenue and profits. Also, revenue delays were experienced in the Asia Pacific segment related to a large customer in China. In addition, operational issues resulted in incremental expense and lower revenue during the quarter. These operational issues include: ineffective supply-chain management; higher-than-expected manufacturing and product costs; continued challenges in achieving efficiencies in European-based manufacturing; higher energy costs; and delays associated with software issues. Below is a summary table providing an approximate estimate of the impact of factors affecting third quarter 2005 earnings per share compared to the guidance provided in the second quarter earnings announcement on July 27, 2005.

O’Dell, Diebold chairman and chief executive officer. “We remain confident in the strength of our brand and in our competitive position in the markets we serve. We have a strong portfolio of businesses in growing markets and continue to generate sales growth, as product orders for Opteva increased significantly from the third quarter 2004. “However, in order to realize our long-term potential we must correct some fundamental performance issues. We must significantly improve our cost structure by addressing inefficiencies in our manufacturing supply chain and software development processes. In addition, we need to continue diligently instilling pricing discipline throughout the organization.” O’Dell continued, “We’ve identified and implemented several actions within the organization designed to improve our long-term financial performance. As previously announced, we’ve made positive changes in key leadership positions within the company, including a new COO and CFO, and have redesigned our organizational alignment to improve our core financial self-service business. “We’ve also taken many steps toward a more strategic and disciplined approach to global pricing management, with more actions to come. Significant work is underway to improve our fundamental performance issues. We remain committed to our previously announced restructuring actions and are evaluating additional potential actions for 2005 and 2006 to improve our competitiveness.” Fixed Exchange-Rate Third Quarter Orders Total orders for financial self-service and security products and services were essentially flat from the prior year period. Financial self-service orders were essentially flat, with order growth in EMEA well into the double digits offset by a decline in North America. Security orders increased in the low single-digit range. Orders in election systems increased significantly due to equipment orders in Ohio, Utah, Mississippi and Georgia. *See accompanying notes for non-GAAP measures.
