The Company wishes to caution readers that certain important factors may have affected and could in the future affect the Company’s expectations that could cause the Company’s actual results for subsequent periods to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements made by or on behalf of the Company. With respect to the Company’s expectations regarding our long-term growth prospects and commitment to return cash to shareholders, such factors include, but are not limited to: (1) the economic climate for the Company’s industry and demand for the Company’s products; (2) fluctuations in the price, quality and availability of raw materials; (3) decline in consumer confidence and spending; (4) changes in consumer preferences; (5) the Company’s ability to implement its business strategy, including the achievement of anticipated cost savings, profitability, realization of price increases and growth targets; (6) the effects of any unanticipated costs and construction or start-up delays in the expansion of the Company’s facilities; and (7) the Company’s ability to successfully develop new and competitive products and enter and expand its sales in new and other emerging markets. New risks emerge from time to time and it is not possible for management to predict all such risk factors or to assess the impact of such risks on the Company’s business.
