Volvo Construction Equipment sells LB Smith Tallahassee (Florida) Dealership to
Flagler

Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) has sold its LB Smith dealership
operation in Tallahassee, Florida, to Flagler Construction Equipment LLC
(Flagler), Maitland, Florida, USA.

The appointment of Flagler as Volvo CE's authorized dealer in Tallahassee is
effective December 3, 2004.

Flagler became a Volvo CE dealer in April of 2004 with its acquisition of the LB
Smith dealership territory of Florida that included branch facilities in
Orlando, Ft. Myers, Jacksonville, Ft. Lauderdale, and Tampa.

Volvo CE purchased the assets associated with the Volvo construction equipment
business of LB Smith, Inc., its distributor for a majority of the East Coast of
the United States, in May 2003.  Volvo CE continued the operations of the former
dealer at all existing service and sales locations under the name LB Smith while
negotiating the sale and divestment of its territories.  The initial sale of
Florida market areas was the first divestment by Volvo CE of the LB Smith
equipment distribution territories.
