Q15: In the 2009 outlook you mentioned that the Board authorized the use of Caterpillar common stock for pension funding and you expect the contribution to be about $650 million. Why are you doing this and how dilutive will it be? A: To proactively address funding obligations, we expect to contribute approximately $1 billion to our pension plans (in the U.S. and abroad) in 2009. To provide greater financial flexibility, we are planning to make voluntary contributions of approximately $650 million in Caterpillar common stock. Any company stock contribution will be made to the U.S. pension plans and is not expected to exceed 25 million shares. A contribution of 25 million shares would represent a 4.2 percent increase in the total number of shares outstanding from the 602 million shares outstanding at the end of first quarter.
