We describe the valuation theoretic properties of the Hardy fields associated to models of \(T(\exp)\) , where T is the theory of a polynomially bounded o-minimal expansion of the reals and \(\exp\) is the real exponential function. We deduce that \(T(\exp)\) has levels with parameters and is exponentially bounded. We establish a maximality property of \(H(\mathbb{R}_{\rm an, powers})\) , the Hardy field of the expansion by the restricted analytic functions and power functions.
