Excluding currency effects described below, first quarter 2008 net sales increased 2.4% from the first quarter of 2007, with growth of 2.7% and 1.6% in the clothing and roll covers segments, respectively.

• Xerium recorded a net loss of $4.7 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2008.
