Any future acquisitions and strategic alliances may expose the company to additional risks.

The company frequently reviews acquisition prospects and other strategic alliances that would complement its current product offerings, increase the size and geographic scope of its operations or otherwise offer growth and operating efficiency opportunities. The financing for any of these acquisitions could dilute the interests of the company stockholders, result in an increase in its indebtedness or both. Acquisitions and other strategic alliances may entail numerous risks which could have a material adverse effect on the company’s business, financial condition and results of operations, including:

 

   

difficulties in assimilating acquired operations or products, including the loss of key employees from acquired businesses;

 

   

undisclosed liabilities that may become the company’s responsibility or other undisclosed material information (subject to any rights the company may have against the seller);

 

   

diversion of management’s attention from the company’s core business;

 

   

compliance with foreign regulatory requirements;

 

   

enforcement of new intellectual property rights;

 

   

adverse effects on existing business relationships with suppliers and customers;

 

   

operating inefficiencies and negative impact on profitability;

 

   

entering markets or product categories in which the company has limited or no prior experience; and

 

   

general economic and political conditions, including legal and other barriers to cross-border investment in general, or by U.S. companies in particular.

The company’s failure to successfully complete the integration of any acquired business or strategic alliance could have a material adverse effect on its business, financial condition and results of operations. In addition, there can be no assurance that the company will be able to identify suitable candidates or consummate acquisitions or strategic alliances on favorable terms, which could materially affect the growth of the company’s business and results of operations.
