Brower Piven Encourages Investors Who Have Losses in Excess of $500,000 From Investment in Terex Corporation to Inquire About the Lead Plaintiff Position in Securities Fraud Class Action Lawsuit Before the February 19, 2010 Lead Plaintiff Deadline

STEVENSON, MD--(Marketwire - January 4, 2010) - Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut on behalf of purchasers of the common stock of Terex Corporation ("Terex" or the "Company") (NYSE: TEX) during the period between February 20, 2008 and September 4, 2008, inclusive (the "Class Period").

No class has yet been certified in the above action. Members of the Class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the Class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff no later than February 19, 2010 and be selected by the Court. The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement and how much of a settlement to accept for the Class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in the Company during the Class Period. You are not required to have sold your shares to seek damages or to serve as a Lead Plaintiff. You may contact Brower Piven (through or 410/415-6616) to answer any questions you may have in that regard.

The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the Company's failure to disclose during the Class Period that the Company failed to properly and timely account for impaired assets in its Construction, Roadbuilding, Utility Products and other segments, that the Company was experiencing declining demand for its products in its Construction, Materials Processing and Aerial Work Platforms segments and, that as a result of the foregoing, defendants lacked a reasonable basis for their positive statements about the Company and its prospects. According to the complaint, after, on September 4, 2008, the Company announced that it was updating its 2008 full year guidance and providing quarterly guidance due to changing market conditions as well as various adverse factors negatively impacting its business, the value of Terex's stock declined significantly.
