Negative economic events including, but not limited to, recessions, lower consumer confidence, high interest rates, inflation, and lower new construction home starts may materially and adversely affect the outlook for our business, liquidity and results of operations.

  • Our business may be adversely affected by weather conditions and other external factors beyond our control.
  • Price volatility and supply constraints for raw materials could prevent us from meeting delivery schedules to our customers or reduce our profit margins.
  • We rely on third-party suppliers for materials in addition to steel, PVC resin, aluminum and glass, and if we fail to identify and develop relationships with a sufficient number of qualified suppliers, or if there is a significant interruption in our supply chains, our business and results of operations could be adversely affected.
  • If we are unable to enforce our intellectual property rights, or if such intellectual property rights become obsolete, our competitive position could be adversely affected.
  • We could incur significant costs as a result of compliance with, violations of or liabilities under applicable environmental, health and safety laws.
  • Changes in building codes and standards could increase the cost of our products, lower the demand for our products, or otherwise adversely affect our business.
  • The industries in which we operate are highly competitive.
  • We face risks related to acquisitions and dispositions that could adversely affect our results of operations.
  • Restructuring our operations may harm our profitability, financial condition and results of operations. Our ability to fully achieve the estimated cost savings is uncertain.
  • We may be significantly affected by global climate change or by legal, regulatory or market responses to global climate change.

  • Any impairment of our goodwill and/or intangible assets could negatively impact our results of operations and financial condition.
  • Our stock price has been and may continue to be volatile.
  • The CD&R Investors own a significant amount of our Common Stock and have substantial governance and other rights pursuant to the New Stockholders Agreement.
  • Transactions engaged in by the CD&R Investors, the Golden Gate Investors or our directors or executives involving our Common Stock may have an adverse effect on the price of our Common Stock.
  • We have substantial debt and may incur substantial additional debt, which could adversely affect our financial health, reduce our profitability, limit our ability to obtain financing in the future and pursue certain business opportunities and make payments on our indebtedness.
  • The 2020 Indenture, the Current Cash Flow Credit Agreement and the Current ABL Credit Agreement contain restrictions and limitations that could significantly impact our ability and the ability of most of our subsidiaries to engage in certain business and financial transactions.
  • We may have future capital needs and may not be able to obtain additional financing on acceptable terms or at all.
  • An increase in interest rates would increase the cost of servicing our debt and could reduce our profitability, decrease our liquidity and impact our solvency.
  • The phase-out of LIBOR could increase our interest expense and have a material adverse effect on us.
