Financial report summary

  • The Company operates in an extremely competitive industry. Many of the Company’s competitors are much larger and may be able to compete more effectively.
  • Substantial operating losses may occur if the customers to whom the Company extends credit or for whom the Company guarantees loans or lease obligations fail to repay the Company.
  • A significant portion of the Company’s sales are with major customers and the Company’s success may be dependent on retaining this business and its customers’ ability to grow their business.
