  • Even though the Company’s common stock is currently traded on the NYSE, it has less liquidity than many other stocks quoted on a national securities exchange.
  • The market price of the Company’s common stock is likely to be highly volatile and could fluctuate widely in price in response to various factors, many of which are beyond our control.
  • The issuance of the shares of the Company’s common stock in connection with the Spectrum Merger (as defined in Note 4 – Acquisitions in Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements included elsewhere in this Annual Report) has materially increased the risk that the Company could experience an “ownership change” for U.S. federal income tax purposes before July 2021, which could materially affect the Company’s ability to utilize its NOLs and adversely impact the Company’s results of operations.
  • Additional issuances of the Company’s common stock may result in dilution to its existing stockholders.
