If we cannot protect and enforce our trademarks and other intellectual property rights, our brand and our business will suffer.

We believe that our trademarks and other proprietary rights are important to our success and competitive position. The actions we take to establish and protect our trademarks and other proprietary rights may prove to be inadequate to prevent imitation of our products or services or to prevent others from claiming violations of their trademarks and proprietary rights by us. In addition, others may develop similar trademarks or other intellectual property independently or assert rights in our trademarks and other proprietary rights. If so, third parties may seek to block or limit sales of our products and services based on allegations that use of some of our marks or other intellectual property constitutes a violation of their intellectual property rights. If we cannot protect our trademarks and other intellectual property rights, or if our trademarks or other intellectual property rights infringe upon the rights of third parties, the value of our brand may decline, which would adversely affect our results of operations.

SIZE="2">We are dependent on our key executive officers for future success.

Our future success depends to a significant degree on
the skills, experience and efforts of our key executive officers. The loss of the services of any of these individuals could harm our business. Only three of our key executive officers, Joseph M. Redling, David D. Clark and Thomas F. Connerty, have
employment agreements with us. In addition, we have not obtained life insurance on any key executive officers. If any key executive officers left us or were seriously injured and became unable to work, the business could be harmed.

STYLE="margin-top:18px;margin-bottom:0px">Provisions in our certificate of incorporation may deter or delay an acquisition of us or prevent a change in control, even if an acquisition or a change of control
would be beneficial to our stockholders.

Provisions of our certificate of incorporation (as amended) may have the effect of deterring
unsolicited takeovers or delaying or preventing a third party from acquiring control of us, even if our stockholders might otherwise receive a premium for their shares over then current market prices. In addition, these provisions may limit the
ability of stockholders to approve transactions that they may deem to be in their best interests.

Our certificate of incorporation (as
amended) permits our Board of Directors to issue preferred stock without stockholder approval upon such terms as the Board of Directors may determine. The rights of the holders of our common stock will be junior to, and may be adversely affected by,
the rights of the holders of any preferred stock that may be issued in the future. The issuance of 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 common stock. The issuance of a substantial number of preferred shares could adversely affect the price of our common stock.
