Item 2.05 Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.

Nordson Corporation today announced a number of restructuring and other actions being taken to align resource investments with shifting patterns of global demand and to improve performance and reduce costs in its Finishing and Coating business segment. These actions, which include operational consolidations and personnel reductions, commenced during the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2005, and will be substantially completed during the first half of the fiscal year 2006.

The company anticipates these actions, which will result in a restructuring charge totaling $3.3 million of which approximately $1 million will be reflected in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2005, will produce annual cost savings of approximately $4 million by the end of fiscal year 2006. Substantially all of the $3.3 million charge is associated with cash expenditures for severance payments to terminated employees.

A copy of the press release is attached to this report as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
