  • A disruption or other failure in our supply chain could adversely affect our business and financial results.
  • System security risks, data protection breaches, and cyber-attacks could compromise our proprietary information, impair customer and vendor relationships, disrupt our internal operations, harm perception of our products, and expose us to litigation and/or regulatory penalties, which could have a material adverse effect on our business and our reputation.
  • Interruptions in our operations, particularly in our IT systems, could have a material adverse effect on our business and reputation.
  • Disruptions in production at one or more of our facilities may have a material adverse impact on our business, results of operations and/or financial condition.

  • We may experience software defects, which could harm our business and reputation and expose us to potential liability.
  • Our business could suffer from problems in production quality, materials and process, which could reduce, delay or interrupt production of our products, resulting in adverse impacts to our business and financial results.
  • Our future success depends upon our ability to develop, introduce and commercialize new products, which can be a lengthy and complex process. We may be unable to commercialize new or improved products we may develop on a timely basis, or at all.
  • We may become subject to additional sales tax collection obligations and claims for uncollected amounts, new U.S. tax legislation could expose us to additional tax liabilities and our income tax positions may be challenged by relevant tax authorities, all of which could adversely affect our cash flows and financial results.
  • We may not be able to sell, exit or reconfigure businesses or facilities that we determine no longer meet with our strategy or that should be consolidated.
  • Our long-lived assets represent a significant portion of our total assets, and we may never realize their full value.
  • Costs relating to product defects, and any related product liability and warranty claims may materially adversely affect our business.
  • We rely on licensing arrangements in production and other fields, and actions taken by any of our licensing partners could have a material adverse effect on our business.
  • If the U.S. government puts significant tariffs or other restrictions on goods imported into the United States, our business, financial condition and results of operations may be materially harmed.
  • Current and prospective regulations, changes in our product offerings and customer contractual requirements addressing consumer privacy and data use and security could increase our costs of operations, which could adversely affect our operations, results of operations and financial condition.
  • We face competition that may result in a loss of our market share and/or a decline in our profitability.

  • Our failure to operate our business in accordance with the standards of the PCI Security Standards Council or other industry standards applicable to our customers, such as Payment Card Brand compliance standards, could have a material adverse effect on our business.

  • Our common stock is not currently traded on a United States national securities exchange, which may continue to decrease the value of our common stock and prevent investors from investing or achieving a meaningful degree of liquidity.
  • Our majority stockholders have the ability to control significant corporate activities, which may result in the Company taking actions that other stockholders did not approve, and their ownership of a significant percentage of our outstanding common stock may impact your liquidity, reduce the trading price of our stock or trigger a change in control under our Senior Credit Facility.
  • Securities analysts may not publish favorable research or reports about our business or may publish no information at all, which could cause our stock price or trading volume to decline.
  • Conflicts of interest may arise because directors who are principals of our largest stockholder constitute a substantial portion of our board of directors.
