Item 7.01        Regulation FD Disclosure.

In a press release dated October 11, 2007, the Registrant announced an update to
its third quarter 2007 guidance. A copy of the press release is furnished as
Exhibit 99.1 to this form 8-K.

The press release contains non-GAAP financial measures. For purposes of
Regulation G, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a
registrant's historical or future financial performance, financial position or
cash flows that excludes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the
effect of excluding amounts, that are included in the most directly comparable
measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statement of
income, balance sheet or statement of cash flows (or equivalent statements) of
the issuer; or includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the
effect of including amounts, that are excluded from the most directly comparable
measure so calculated and presented. In this regard, GAAP refers to generally
accepted accounting principles in the United States. At this time, the
Registrant can not provide the required reconciliation within the earnings
release of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP
financial measures, as the information required to make such a comparison are
not known to the Company at the time of this filing. The reconciliation will be
included in future filings when the amount, or a range of the amount, becomes

Rogers believes that net income from continuing operations and diluted earnings
per share, excluding the effect of any restructuring and impairment charges, is
a measure that should be presented in addition to income determined in
accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and is useful to
investors. The following matters should be considered when evaluating these
non-GAAP financial measures:

o    Rogers reviews the operating results of its businesses excluding the impact
     of any restructuring and impairment charges because it provides an
     additional basis of comparison. We believe that these events are unusual in
     nature, and would not be indicative of ongoing operating results. As a
     result, management believes such charges should be excluded in order to
     compare past, current and future periods.

o    Restructuring and impairment charges principally represent adjustments to
     the carrying value of certain assets and do not typically require a cash

o    Restructuring and impairment charges are typically material and are
     considered to be outside the normal operations of a business. Corporate
     management is responsible for making decisions about such charges.

The non-GAAP financial measures included in the earnings release will be
reconciled to the comparable GAAP results when the amounts are known and such
reconciliations will be posted on the Registrant's web site at

The information in this Form 8-K and the Exhibit attached hereto shall not be
deemed "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of
1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section, nor
shall such information be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under
the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as shall be expressly set forth
by specific reference in such filing.
