that have experienced earthquakes in the past. An earthquake or other natural disasters could disrupt our operations. Additionally, the loss of electric power, such as the temporary loss of power caused by power shortages in the grid servicing our facilities in California, could disrupt operations or impair critical systems. Any of these disruptions or other events outside of our control could impair our distribution of products, damage inventory, interrupt critical functions or otherwise affect our business negatively, harming our operating results. Our existing earthquake insurance relating to our distribution center may be insufficient and does not cover any of our other operations. If the facilities of our third-party finished goods or component manufacturers are affected by earthquakes, power shortages, floods, monsoons, terrorism or other events outside of our control, our business could suffer.
