Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On October 10, 2005, ADC's Retirement Committee, which is charged with overseeing certain of our benefit plans, approved two amendments to the ADC 401(k) Excess Plan (2002 Restatement) (the "Excess Plan") which is a nonqualified, unfunded, deferred compensation and supplemental retirement plan for the benefit of a select group of management or highly compensated eligible employees. The Fourth Amendment to the Excess Plan revises rules regarding excess deferrals, fixed match, and performance match. The Fifth Amendment to the Excess Plan adds a supplemental benefit feature for management level employees who are eligible for a "transition benefit" under the ADC Retirement Savings Plan and who earn salaries in excess of a minimum threshold determined by our Retirement Committee from time to time, to be effective January 1, 2006. The Fourth and Fifth Amendments to the Excess Plan will be filed with our 10-K for the fiscal year ending October 31, 2005.
