To achieve economies of scale, we concentrate purchases from a limited number of suppliers, and therefore in the short term may be dependent upon certain suppliers to meet performance and quality specifications and delivery schedules.

 Backlog and Seasonality


The backlog of unfilled orders at June 30, 2006 was approximately $370.0 million, a 42.6% increase compared with backlog of $259.5 million at June 30, 2005.  The increase in backlog was partially attributable to a general increase in demand for our products across all geographic regions. Substantially all of these orders are scheduled for delivery within 12 months.  The majority of orders are shipped within 30 days of acceptance.


We do not believe that aggregate worldwide sales reflect any significant degree of seasonality.
