Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
The company has been taken over by Caterpillar in 2011, at which time those shares should have been converted to Caterpillar shares. You need to contact your broker who will need to contact Caterpillar Inc. or you can contact Caterpillar Inc shareholder services ( as they will have to research the shares to make sure they are valid and then perform the conversion and current valuation on the shares.
