Risks
  • We could lose our access to data from external sources, which could prevent us from providing our solutions.
  • Fraudulent or unpermitted data access and other cyber-security or privacy breaches may negatively impact our business and harm our reputation.
  • We derive a substantial portion of our revenues from U.S. P&C primary insurers. If there is a downturn in the U.S. insurance industry or that industry does not continue to accept our solutions, our revenues will decline.
  • Acquisitions could result in operating difficulties, dilution and other harmful consequences, and we may not be successful in achieving growth through acquisitions.
  • There may be consolidation in our end customer market, which could reduce the use of our services.
  • If we are unable to develop successful new solutions or if we experience defects, failures and delays associated with the introduction of new solutions, our business could suffer serious harm.
  • We will continue to rely upon proprietary technology rights, and if we are unable to protect them, our business could be harmed.
  • We could face claims for intellectual property infringement, which if successful could restrict us from using and providing our technologies and solutions to our customers.
  • Regulatory developments could negatively impact our business.
  • We typically face a long selling cycle to secure new contracts that require significant resource commitments, which result in a long lead time before we receive revenues from new relationships.
  • We may lose key business assets, through the loss of data center capacity or the interruption of telecommunications links, the internet, or power sources, which could significantly impede our ability to do business.
  • We are subject to competition in many of the markets in which we operate and we may not be able to compete effectively.
  • To the extent the availability of free or relatively inexpensive information increases, the demand for some of our solutions may decrease.
  • Our financial position may be impacted by audit examinations or changes in tax laws or tax rulings.
  • Our senior leadership team is critical to our continued success and the loss of such personnel could harm our business.
  • We may fail to attract and retain enough qualified employees to support our operations, which could have an adverse effect on our ability to expand our business and service our customers.
  • We are subject to antitrust, consumer protection and other litigation, and may in the future become further subject to such litigation; an adverse outcome in such litigation could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, revenues and profitability.
  • General economic, political and market forces and dislocations beyond our control could reduce demand for our solutions and harm our business.
  • General economic uncertainties, including downward trends in the energy industry, could reduce demand by Wood Mackenzie’s customers for its products and services.
  • Our operations are subject to additional risks inherent in international operations.
  • We are subject to the increased risk of exchange rate fluctuations.
  • Economic and political instability and potential unfavorable changes in laws and regulations resulting from the U.K.’s exit from the E.U. could adversely affect our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.
  • If there are substantial sales of our common stock, our stock price could decline.
  • Our capital structure, level of indebtedness and the terms of anti-takeover provisions under Delaware law and in our amended and restated certificate of incorporation and bylaws could diminish the value of our common stock and could make a merger, tender offer or proxy contest difficult or could impede an attempt to replace or remove our directors.
