economic conditions, including significant changes in demand from our largest
customers as a result of the impact of the global economic crisis and capital
market weakness; variability of operating results among periods; the challenge
of managing our financial exposures to foreign currency fluctuations; the
challenge of managing volatile energy prices; the challenge of responding to
lower-than-expected customer demand; our inability to retain or grow our
business due to execution problems resulting from significant headcount
reductions, plant closures and product transfers associated with major
restructuring activities; our dependence on industries affected by rapid
technological change; our ability to successfully manage our international
operations; and the delays in the delivery and/or general availability of
various components used in our manufacturing process. These and other risks
and uncertainties, as well as other information related to the company, are
