Caution Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements relate to our business goals and expectations concerning our future operations, margins, profitability, liquidity and capital resources. Although we believe the assumptions upon which these forward-looking statements are based are reasonable, any of these assumptions could prove to be inaccurate and the forward-looking statements based on these assumptions could be incorrect. Our operations involve risks and uncertainties, many of which are outside our control, and any one of which, or a combination of which, could materially affect our results of operations and whether the forward-looking statements ultimately prove to be correct. Actual results and trends in the future may differ materially from those suggested or implied by the forward-looking statements depending on a variety of factors. Some of the factors that we believe could affect our results include our substantial indebtedness; our ability to service our outstanding indebtedness and the impact such indebtedness may have on the way we operate our business; the loss of one or more of our significant customers or strategic relationships; general economic and business conditions and any downturns in the cyclical industry in which we operate; our competitive environment and our ability to make technological advances; interruptions in our production or manufacturing capacity and our ability to obtain supplies; economic conditions in the industries in which our products are sold; maintenance and protection of our intellectual property; political and economic conditions in the countries where we conduct business; geological conditions in some of the earthquake-prone countries where certain of our customers and suppliers are based; the costs of environmental compliance and/or the imposition of liabilities under environmental laws and regulations; potential product liability or personal injury claims; inability to make necessary capital expenditures; loss of key personnel; the financial viability of our customers, distributors or suppliers; and our ability to achieve cost savings as well as other matters described under "Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K/A and other filings with the SEC.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Included within this press release and the accompanying tables and notes are non-GAAP financial measures that supplement the company's consolidated financial information prepared under GAAP. The company describes these non-GAAP financial measures and reconciles them to the most directly comparable GAAP measures in the tables and notes attached to this press release. The company's management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide a more meaningful representation of the company’s ongoing financial performance than GAAP measures alone.

You should consider them together with the consolidated financial information located in the tables attached to this press release.
