Financial report summary

  • The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic could adversely affect our business in a material way.
  • We have engaged, and may continue to engage, in strategic acquisitions or transactions, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations, financial condition and cash flows.
  • We rely on indirect sales channels, such as value-added resellers, systems integrators, corporate resellers, distributors, and OEMs, for the distribution of our software applications, and the failure of these channels to effectively sell our software applications could have a material adverse effect on our revenues and results of operations.
  • We may not be able to respond to rapid technological changes with new software applications and services offerings, which could have a material adverse effect on our sales and profitability.
  • If the cost for annual maintenance and support agreements, or our term-based subscription licenses, with our customers is not competitive in the market or if our customers do not renew their agreements either at all, or on terms that are less favorable to us, our business and financial performance might be adversely impacted.
  • In periods of volatile economic conditions, our exposure to credit risk and payment delinquencies on our accounts receivable significantly increases.
  • We develop software applications that interoperate with certain software, operating systems and hardware developed by others, and if the developers of those operating systems and hardware do not cooperate with us or we are unable to devote the necessary resources so that our applications interoperate with those systems, our software development efforts may be delayed or foreclosed and our business and results of operations may be adversely affected.
  • We sell a backup appliance which integrates our software with hardware. If we fail to accurately predict our manufacturing requirements and manage our supply chain we could incur additional costs or experience manufacturing delays that could harm our business.
  • We encounter long sales and implementation cycles, particularly for our larger customers, which could have an adverse effect on the size, timing and predictability of our revenues.
  • We depend on growth in the data and information management software market, and lack of growth or contraction in this market could have a material adverse effect on our sales and financial condition.
  • Our software applications are complex and may contain undetected errors, which could adversely affect not only our software applications’ performance but also our reputation and the acceptance of our software applications in the market.
  • We may not receive significant revenues from our current research and development efforts for several years, if at all.
  • We implemented a restructuring program in fiscal 2019, which we cannot guarantee will achieve its intended result.
  • Change in senior management could cause disruption in the Company and have a material effect on our business. Furthermore, the loss of key personnel or the failure to attract and retain highly qualified personnel could have an adverse effect on our business.
  • Risks from investing in growth opportunities could impact our business.
  • Volatility in the global economy could adversely impact our continued growth, results of operations and our ability to forecast future business.
  • Our international sales and operations are subject to factors that could have an adverse effect on our results of operations.
  • We may experience fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates that could adversely impact our results of operations.
  • We may be subject to information technology system failures, network disruptions and breaches in data security.
  • Many of our key financial systems used for internal purposes are cloud-based solutions provided by third parties.
  • We are, and may in the future become, involved in litigation that may have a material adverse effect on our business.
  • Protection of our intellectual property is limited, and any misuse of our intellectual property by others could materially adversely affect our sales and results of operations.
  • Claims that we misuse the intellectual property of others could subject us to significant liability and disrupt our business, which could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations and financial condition.
  • Our use of “open source” software could negatively affect our business and subjects us to possible litigation.
  • Our effective tax rate is difficult to project, and changes in such tax rate or adverse results of tax examinations could adversely affect our operating results.
  • Our reported financial results may be adversely affected by changes in accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.
  • Certain provisions of our certificate of formation and our amended and restated bylaws or Delaware law could prevent or delay a potential acquisition of control of our Company, which could decrease the trading price of our common stock.
  • Although we believe we currently have adequate internal control over financial reporting, we are required to assess our internal control over financial reporting on an annual basis, and any future adverse results from such assessment could result in a loss of investor confidence in our financial reports and have an adverse effect on our stock price.
  • We may experience a decline in revenues or volatility in our quarterly operating results, which may adversely affect the market price of our common stock.
  • The price of our common stock may be highly volatile and may decline regardless of our operating performance.
  • Our business could be materially and adversely affected as a result of natural disasters, terrorism or other catastrophic events.
