This excerpt taken from the SYMC 10-Q filed Feb 4, 2005.
We are exposed to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, which could adversely affect our financial results. A significant portion of our manufacturing costs and operating expenses result from transactions outside of the United States, often in foreign currencies. International sales comprised approximately 54%, 52%, 50%, 52%, 49% and 47% of our total sales in the December 2004 quarter, September 2004 quarter, June 2004 quarter, fiscal 2004, 2003 and 2002, respectively. Although our operating results have recently been positively affected by changes in foreign currency rates, our future operating results will continue to be subject to fluctuations in foreign currency rates, and we may be negatively affected by fluctuations in foreign currency rates in the future, especially if international sales continue to grow as a percentage of our total sales.
