and consumer confidence and the conditions of the U.S. economy, which
impact our large-scale optical segment; (B) fluctuations in foreign
currency exchange rates; (C) actions of new and existing competitors;
(D) ability to effectively utilize and increase production capacity;
(E) product performance, reliability and quality issues; (F) project
management and installation issues that could result in losses on
individual contracts; (G) changes in consumer and customer preference,
or architectural trends and building codes; (H) dependence on a
relatively small number of customers in certain business segments; (I)
revenue and operating results that could differ from market
expectations; (J) self-insurance risk related to a material product
liability or other event for which the company is liable; (K) dependence
on information technology systems and information security threats; (L)
cost of compliance with and changes in environmental regulations; (M)
interruptions in glass supply; (N) loss of key personnel and inability
to source sufficient labor; and (O) integration of recent acquisition.
The company cautions investors that actual future results could differ
materially from those described in the forward-looking statements, and
that other factors may in the future prove to be important in affecting
the company’s results of operations. New factors emerge from time to
time and it is not possible for management to predict all such factors,
nor can it assess the impact of each factor on the business or the
extent to which any factor, or a combination of factors, may cause
actual results to differ materially from those contained in any
forward-looking statements. For a more detailed explanation of the
foregoing and other risks and uncertainties, see Item 1A of the
company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February
