Following our planned acquisition of Komag, if we fail to successfully integrate Komags business into our operations in the expected time frame, or at all, it may adversely affect our future results.
We believe that our planned acquisition of Komag will result in certain benefits, including certain cost, operational and other efficiencies and synergies. The success of our planned acquisition will be dependent on our ability to realize the anticipated benefits from vertically integrating Komags business into our operations and Komags media technology with our head technology. Following the planned acquisition, we may fail to realize the anticipated benefits on a timely basis, or at all, for a variety of reasons, including the following:
If we are not able to successfully integrate Komags business and technology into our operations, the anticipated benefits and efficiencies of the planned acquisition may not be realized fully or at all, or may take longer to realize than expected, and our ability to compete, our profit margins and our results of operations may be adversely affected.
