    QUARTERLY SALES OF PRINTER HARDWARE

    Laser:
    Revenue from sales of laser printers fell 21 percent in the fourth
    quarter, primarily because of a lower number of printers sold, as well
    as aggressive pricing. The number of shipments declined 8 percent
    primarily because of a lower number of units sold to other companies
    that then re-brand them and sell them.Inkjet: Revenue from sales of
    inkjet printers and the number of inkjet printers sold both dropped 43
    percent.

    QUARTERLY SALES OF INK AND TONER
    Sales of ink and toner were down 12 percent, primarily because of a decline in sales of ink.

    LOOKING FORWARD
    Lexmark
    expects its first-quarter revenue to fall “in the mid- to high-teens
    percentage range” compared with the same quarter in 2008. The company
    forecast earnings per share in the range of 52 cents to 62 cents.
    Excluding restructuring charges, earnings per share are expected to be
    65 cents to 75 cents
