ITEM 4.02 Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or a Related Audit Report or Completed Interim Review.
          On August 1, 2007, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of Pall Corporation (the “Company”), on the recommendation of management, concluded that the Company’s previously issued financial statements for each of the eight fiscal years in the period ended July 31, 2006 and for the each of the fiscal quarters ended October 31, 2006, January 31, 2007, and April 30, 2007 should no longer be relied upon and that a restatement of some or all of those financial statements will be required. The Audit Committee has informed KPMG LLP, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, of its conclusion with respect to this matter. As previously reported, the Audit Committee is conducting an inquiry into this matter.
          The anticipated restatement results from the Company’s understatement of U.S. income tax payments and of its provision for income taxes as previously reported. The amount of the understatement has not yet been finally determined, but is material and relates to the taxation of certain intercompany payable balances that mainly resulted from sales of products by a foreign subsidiary of the Company to a U.S. subsidiary of the Company. Under the Internal Revenue Code, these unpaid balances may have given rise to deemed dividend income to the Company that was not properly taken into account in the Company’s U.S. income tax return and provision for income taxes. The Company has not finally determined the impact on the Company’s provision for income taxes in any affected period, but it will vary from period to period depending on the size of the intercompany payable balances at the end of the affected fiscal quarters, among other factors. The Company’s tax liability will include the amount of taxes that would have been payable with respect to any deemed dividend income in the affected periods, as well as interest on overdue amounts of taxes payable and penalties that may be assessed by the Internal Revenue Service on the eventual resolution of this matter. The Company cannot predict when its tax liability will be finally determined or whether additional matters will be identified in connection with the Audit Committee’s inquiry. The Company believes, however, that taxes payable with respect to the intercompany payable balances described above could be in excess of $130 million, exclusive of interest and penalties. The Company also believes that, as a result of these circumstances, it may have one or more material weaknesses in its internal control over financial reporting.
          As previously reported, this matter may also have resulted in the Company’s failure to comply with certain terms of its debt and other agreements, and the Company plans to seek waivers under those agreements as necessary.
          On August 2, 2007, the Company issued a press release with respect to the matter described above, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99 and incorporated by reference herein.
ITEM 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.
