Zebra sells a significant portion of its products internationally and purchases important components from foreign suppliers. These circumstances create a number of risks.

Zebra sells a significant amount of its products to customers outside the United States. Shipments to international customers are expected to continue to account for a material portion of net sales. Risks associated with sales and purchases outside the United States include:

·                  Fluctuating foreign currency rates could restrict sales, or increase costs of purchasing, in foreign countries.

·                  Foreign governments may impose burdensome tariffs, quotas, taxes, trade barriers or capital flow restrictions.

·                  Political and economic instability may reduce demand for our products, or put our foreign assets at risk.

·                  Restrictions on the export or import of technology may reduce or eliminate the ability to sell in or purchase from certain markets.

·                  Potentially limited intellectual property protection in certain countries may limit recourse against infringing products or cause Zebra to refrain from selling in certain geographic territories.

·                  Staffing and managing international operations may be unusually difficult.
