PART II. OTHER INFORMATION
We are involved in a number of legal claims or proceedings concerning matters arising in the ordinary course of business. However, we do not expect that any of these matters, individually or in the aggregate, will have a material effect or impact on our results of operation or financial condition.
As a result of the November 7, 2006 cash dividend declaration, the Company hereby deletes in its entirety the risk factor reported in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2006 entitled We Currently Do Not Intend to Pay Dividends.
Other than the changes to the risk factors below, there have been no other material changes to our Risk Factors as reported in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2006
Our Revenue Could Be Adversely Affected by the Loss of a Significant Client or the Failure to Collect a Large Account Receivable.
We have in the past derived, and may in the future derive, a significant portion of our revenue from a relatively limited number of major clients. From year to year, revenue from one or more individual clients may exceed 10% of our revenue for the quarter. During the quarter ended December 31, 2006, we had one client that individually accounted for 13% of our net revenue from continuing operations. If we lose any major clients or any of our clients cancel or significantly reduce a large projects scope, we would lose a significant amount of revenue. In addition, if we fail to collect a large account receivable, we could be subject to significant financial exposure.
A Significant or Prolonged Economic Downturn Could Have a Material Adverse Effect on Our Results of Operations.
Our results of operations are affected by the level of business activity of our clients, which in turn is affected by the level of economic activity in the industries and markets that they serve. A decline in the level of business activity of our clients could have a material adverse effect on our revenue and profit margin. Although current economic conditions have improved over previous quarters, future economic conditions could cause some clients to reduce or defer their expenditures for consulting services. Net revenue (before out-of-pocket expense reimbursements) related to continuing operations for the quarter ended December 31, 2006 increased 28% compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2005. We have implemented cost-savings initiatives to manage our expenses as a percentage of revenue. However, current and future cost-management initiatives may not be sufficient to maintain our margins if economic environment should weaken for a prolonged period.
Our Charter Documents and Delaware Law May Discourage an Acquisition of Diamond.
Provisions of our certificate of incorporation, by-laws, and Delaware law could make it more difficult for a third party to acquire us, even if doing so would be beneficial to our stockholders. We may issue shares of preferred stock in the future without stockholder approval and upon such terms as our board of directors may determine. Our issuance of this preferred stock could have the effect of making it more difficult for a third party to acquire, or of discouraging a third party from acquiring, a majority of our outstanding stock. Our charter and by-laws also provide that special stockholders meetings may be called only by our Chairman of the board of directors, by our Secretary at the written request of the chairman or by our board of directors, with the result that any third-party takeover not supported by the board of directors could be subject to significant delays and difficulties. In addition, our board of directors is divided into three classes, each of which serves for a staggered three-year term, which may make it more difficult for a third party to gain control of our board of directors.
