State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.

On October 26, 2004, Flowserve Corporation (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing (i) certain SEC filing delays; (ii) anticipated amendment of previously announced second quarter 2004 financial results; (iii) the existence of certain material weaknesses in its internal controls and (iv) certain information about performing Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404 work. The Company is working diligently to address and resolve these matters, as well as complete and file its amended second quarter report on Form 10-Q/A for the second quarter ended June 30, 2003 (“2003 2Q Form 10-Q/A”); its second quarter report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2004 (“2004 2Q Form 10-Q”) and its third quarter report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2004 (“2004 3Q Form 10-Q”). Due to the Company’s efforts in resolving the aforementioned matters and the completion of the 2003 2Q Form 10-Q/A, 2004 2Q Form 10-Q, and the 2004 3Q Form 10-Q, the Company is not able to finalize the financial statements and related information for inclusion in its 2004 3Q Form 10-Q. Accordingly, the Company is unable to file its 2004 3Q Form 10-Q within the prescribed time period.

If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.

The Company currently expects that there will be a significant change in results of operations from the corresponding period of the prior year, however, until the Company completes its review of its financial results for the third quarter of 2004 and fully assesses the matters disclosed in its Form 8-K furnished to the SEC on October 28, 2004, it will not be in a position to comment on any anticipated changes in results of operations with regard to the corresponding period of the prior year.
