                                     PART I
ITEM 1- BUSINESS

         Ferro Corporation ("Ferro" or the "Company"), incorporated under the
laws of Ohio in 1919, is a leading global producer of a diverse array of
performance materials sold to a broad range of manufacturers in approximately 30
markets throughout the world. The Company applies certain core scientific
expertise in organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, polymer science and
material science to develop coatings for ceramics and metal; materials for
passive electronic components; pigments; enamels, pastes and additives for the
glass market; specialty plastic compounds and colors; and polymer additives.
Ferro's products are classified as performance materials, rather than
commodities, because they are formulated to perform specific and important
functions both in the manufacturing processes and in the finished products of
our customers. The Company's performance materials require a high degree of
technical service on an individual customer basis. The value of these
performance materials stems from the results and performance they achieve in
actual use.

         Ferro's products are traditionally used in markets such as appliances,
automotive, building and renovation, electronics, household furnishings,
industrial products, pharmaceuticals, telecommunications and transportation. The
Company's leading customers include major chemical companies, producers of
multi-layer ceramic capacitors and manufacturers of tile, appliances and
automobiles. Many customers, particularly in the appliance and automotive
markets, purchase materials from more than one of the Company's business units.
Ferro's customer base is also well-diversified both geographically and by
end-market.

         A further description of Ferro's business, its principal products,
their markets and applications, is contained under all headings on pages 2
through 16 of its 2001 Annual Report to Shareholders (the "Annual Report"),
which is attached here as Exhibit 13. The information contained under the
headings on pages 2 through 16 of the Annual Report is incorporated here by
reference. Information concerning Ferro's business during 2001, 2000 and 1999 is
included under the heading "Management's Discussion and Analysis" on pages 17
through 21 of the Annual Report and in Note 7 to Ferro's Consolidated Financial
Statements, appearing on page 32 and 33 of the Annual Report. Such information
is incorporated here by reference. Additional information about Ferro's
reportable operating segments, including financial information relating thereto,
is set forth in Note 13 to Ferro's Consolidated Financial Statements, which
appears on pages 36 and 37 of the Annual Report and is incorporated here by
reference.

         Risk Factors

         Certain statements contained here and in future filings with the
Securities and Exchange Commission reflect the Company's expectations with
respect to the future performance and may constitute "forward-looking
statements" within the meaning of federal securities laws. These statements are
subject to a variety of uncertainties, unknown risks and other factors
concerning the Company's operations and business environment, which are
difficult to predict and are beyond the control of the Company. Important
factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those
suggested by these forward-looking statements, and that could adversely affect
the Company's future financial performance, are described in the documents
incorporated by reference and include the following:

        -         The outcome of the Company's efforts to integrate the dmc2
                  businesses acquired in 2001;

        -         Changes in customer requirements, markets or industries
                  served;

        -         Economic downturns in some or all of the Company's major
                  product markets;

        -         The risks related to fluctuating currency rates, changing
                  legal, tax and regulatory requirements that affect the
                  Company's businesses and changing social and political
                  conditions in the many countries in which the Company
                  operates;

        -         Political or economic instability as a result of acts of
                  terrorism; and

        -         Access to capital, primarily in the United States capital
                  markets, and any restrictions placed on Ferro by current or
                  future financing arrangements.



                                       1



         The risks and uncertainties identified above are not the only risks the
Company faces. Additional risks and uncertainties not presently known to the
Company or that it currently believes to be immaterial also may adversely affect
the Company. Should any known or unknown risks and uncertainties develop into
actual events, these developments could have material adverse effects on the
Company's business, financial condition and results of operations.

         Raw Materials

         Raw materials widely used in Ferro's operations include resins,
thermoplastic polymers, cobalt oxide, zinc oxide, zircon sand, borates,
porcelain, silica, steric acid, tallow and titanium dioxide. Other important raw
materials include silver, copper and precious metals. Over the past two years,
the prices of silver and copper have been generally stable or declining. The
price of precious metal cost fluctuations are generally passed through to
customers, however, the Company does have some exposure to cost fluctuation for
precious metals held in inventory.

         The Company has a broad supplier base and, in most instances,
alternative sources of raw materials are available if problems arise with a
particular supplier. Ferro maintains comprehensive supplier agreements for our
strategic and critical raw materials. In addition, the magnitude of our
purchases provides for significant leverage in negotiating favorable conditions
for long-term supplier contracts. The raw materials essential to Ferro's
operations both in the United States and overseas are obtainable from multiple
sources worldwide. Ferro did not encounter significant raw material shortages in
2001 and does not anticipate such shortages in 2002.

         Patent, Trademarks and Licenses

         Ferro owns a substantial number of patents relating to its various
products and their uses. While these patents are of importance to Ferro, it does
not believe that the invalidity or expiration of any single patent or group of
patents would have a material adverse effect on its business. Ferro patents
expire at various dates through the year 2022. Ferro also uses a number of
trademarks which are important to its business as a whole or to a particular
segment. Ferro believes that these trademarks are adequately protected.

         Ferro does not hold any licenses, franchises or concessions that it
considers to be material to its future.

         Customers

         Ferro does not consider a material part of its coatings or its
performance chemicals businesses to be dependent on any single customer or group
of customers.

         Backlog of Orders

         In general, no significant lead-time between order and delivery exists
in any of Ferro's business segments. As a result, Ferro does not consider that
the dollar amount of backlog orders believed to be firm as of any particular
date is material for an understanding of its business. Ferro does not regard any
material part of its business to be seasonal.

         Competition

         In most of its products, Ferro has a substantial number of competitors,
none of which is dominant. Competition varies by product and by region. Due to
the diverse nature of Ferro's product lines, no single company competes across
all product lines in any of the Company's segments.

         In the coatings segment worldwide, the Company is the largest producer
of porcelain enamel and ceramic glaze coatings. Strong local competition for
ceramic glaze exists in the markets of Italy and Spain. Ferro is one of the top
five producers of powder coatings in the world. The top five producers of powder
coatings represent approximately 60% of the market. In the performance chemicals
segment, the Company is one of the largest producers of polymer additives in the
United States and has several large competitors. The plastics business has a
large number of competitors in all businesses.

         In September 2001, Ferro acquired the electronic materials, performance
pigments and colors, glass systems, and Cerdec ceramics businesses ("dmc(2)
businesses") of dmc(2) Degussa Metals Catalysts Cerdec AG (dmc(2). The dmc(2)
businesses produce materials for passive electronic components; organic and
inorganic pigments and colors for ceramics, plastic and glass; enamels, pastes
and additives for the glass market; and ceramic coatings for structural ceramics
and sanitaryware. The products are manufactured in 15 countries around the world
and used primarily in markets Ferro traditionally serves.




                                       2



         In electronic materials, the dmc(2) acquisition more than doubles the
Company's sales of its electronic materials business and adds critical metals
technology and manufacturing capabilities, specifically in Europe and Japan. In
specialty colors, the dmc(2) acquisition strengthens the Company's technology
and competitive presence. In tile coatings, the dmc(2) acquisition complements
existing manufacturing capabilities in the tile business and broadens the
Company's presence in Asia and Southern Europe.

         Product performance characteristics, customer and technical service,
and price are the most important components of the competition that Ferro
encounters in the sale of nearly all of its products.

         Research and Development

         A substantial number of Ferro's employees are involved in research and
development activities relating to new and existing products, services and
techniques required by the ever-changing markets of its customers. Laboratories
are located at each of Ferro's major subsidiaries around the world where
technical efforts are applied to meet customer and market needs of the
particular geographical area. In the United States, laboratories are maintained
in each of its divisions. In addition, corporate research and development
activity is located in the Cleveland area. The research staff is organized by
major business group. The Company also operates central design and development
labs in Italy and Spain to serve the tile market worldwide.

         Expenditures for research and development activities relating to the
development or significant improvement of new and/or existing products, services
and techniques were approximately $30.1 million in 2001, $30.2 million in 2000
and $30.9 million in 1999. Expenditures for individual customer requests for
research and development were not material.

         Environmental Matters

         Ferro's manufacturing facilities, like those of its industry generally,
are subject to numerous laws and regulations implemented to protect the
environment, particularly with respect to plant wastes and emissions. Ferro
believes that it is in compliance with the environmental regulations to which
its operations are subject and that, to the extent Ferro may not be in
compliance with such regulations, non-compliance has not had a materially
adverse effect on Ferro's operations. The Company's compliance has required a
continuous management effort and significant expenditures.

         Ferro and its international subsidiaries authorized $5.8 million in
capital expenditures for environmental control in 2001 and the Company's best
estimate of what it expects capital expenditures for environmental control to be
in 2002 and 2003 is $4.9 million and $4.6 million, respectively. The Company
does not consider these capital expenditures to be material.

         For additional information on other environmental matters, see Item 3
of this Annual Report on Form 10-K and information contained in Note 9 on page
33 of the Annual Report. This information is incorporated here by reference.

         Employees

         At December 31, 2001, Ferro employed 9,348 full-time employees,
including 6,493 employees in its foreign subsidiaries and affiliates and 2,855
in the United States.

         Approximately 29% of the domestic workforce is covered by labor
agreements, and approximately 15% is affected by labor agreements that expire in
2002.

         Foreign Operations

         Financial information about Ferro's domestic and foreign operations is
set forth in Note 13 on pages 36 and 37 of the Annual Report and is incorporated
here by reference.

         Ferro's products are produced and distributed in foreign as well as
domestic markets. Ferro commenced its international operations in 1927.

         Wholly-owned subsidiaries operate manufacturing facilities in
Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan,
Mexico, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain. Partially-owned subsidiaries
manufacture in Argentina, Indonesia, Italy, Spain, South Korea, Taiwan,
Thailand, Turkey and Venezuela.




                                       3


         Ferro receives technical service fees and/or royalties from many of its
foreign subsidiaries. Historically, as a matter of corporate policy, the foreign
subsidiaries have been expected to remit a portion of their annual earnings to
the parent as dividends. To the extent earnings of foreign subsidiaries are not
remitted to Ferro, those earnings are intended to be indefinitely re-invested in
those subsidiaries.

ITEM 2 - PROPERTIES

         The Company's corporate headquarters offices are located at 1000
Lakeside Avenue, Cleveland, Ohio. Other corporate facilities, located in

plants in Brazil, China, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands and Portugal. In
many instances, the manufacturing facilities outside of the United States are
used in both business segments.

ITEM 3 - LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

         On May 4, 1999, and December 16, 1999, the United States Environmental
Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) issued Notices of Violation (NOVs) alleging that
the Company violated various requirements of the Clean Air Act and related state
laws in modifying and operating the Pyro-Chek process. The Company completed the
sale of assets relating to the Pyro-Chek process and ceased production of
Pyro-Chek in June 2000.

         The Company has negotiated with the U.S. EPA, the State of Indiana and
local authorities a settlement of this matter that resolves the issues raised in
the NOVs. The settlement is subject to public notice and comment and then to
approval by the United States District Court for the Northern District of
Indiana. If approved, the settlement will not have a material adverse effect on
the Company's financial position or results of operations.

                  In 2000 and 2001, tort actions were filed against the Company
in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Indiana by or
on behalf of four individual plaintiffs. The complaints in these actions
generally alleged that the Company was negligent and/or reckless in failing to
control emissions, misrepresenting emissions levels to regulatory agencies,
failing to warn nearby residents of the hazards posed by its emissions, and in
emitting carcinogenic chemicals without a permit. On February 13, 2002, the
United States District Court dismissed with prejudice the claims brought by
three of the four plaintiffs pursuant to settlement agreements. Payment of these
settlements will not have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial
position or results of operations. The fourth action, which involves allegations
of negligence, remains pending and the Company intends to defend the claims
vigorously.

         There are also pending against the Company and its consolidated
subsidiaries various other lawsuits and claims. In the opinion of management,
the ultimate liabilities resulting from such other lawsuits and claims will not
materially affect the consolidated financial position or results of operations
or liquidity of the Company.

          INDEPENDENT AUDITORS' REPORT ON FINANCIAL STATEMENT SCHEDULE

To the Shareholders and Board of Directors Ferro Corporation:

Under date of February 13, 2002, we reported on the consolidated balance sheets
of Ferro Corporation and subsidiaries as of December 31, 2001 and 2000, and the
related consolidated statements of income, shareholders' equity, and cash flows
for each of the years in the three-year period ended December 31, 2001, which
are included in the 2001 Annual Report to Shareholders. These consolidated
financial statements and our report thereon are incorporated by reference in the
Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year 2001. In connection with our audits of
the aforementioned consolidated financial statements, we also audited the
related consolidated financial statement Schedule II-Valuation and Qualifying
Accounts and Reserves. This financial statement schedule is the responsibility
of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on this
financial statement schedule based on our audits.

In our opinion, such financial statement schedule, when considered in relation
to the basic consolidated financial statements taken as a whole, presents
fairly, in all material respects, the information set forth therein.
