Financial report summary

TrimbleNikonHexagon AB
  • Competitors may develop products that make our products obsolete or less competitive.
  • Our growth depends on the ability of our products to attain broad market acceptance.
  • We may not be able to identify or consummate acquisitions or achieve expected benefits from or effectively integrate acquisitions, which could harm our growth.
  • The buying process for most of our customers for our measurement products is highly decentralized and typically requires significant time and expense for us to further penetrate the potential market of a specific customer, which may delay our ability to generate additional revenue.
  • On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of a novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”) as a global pandemic, which continues to spread throughout the United States and around the world. Our operations are significantly vulnerable to the effects of pandemics, such as COVID-19, which have, and could continue to materially impact our business.
  • We have experienced a significant transition in our executive management team in the last two years. Any delay in the integration of our executive management team or our failure to successfully attract and retain qualified personnel could have an adverse effect on our business and results of operations.
  • We derive a substantial part of our revenues from our international operations, which are subject to greater volatility and often require more management time and expense to achieve profitability than our domestic operations.
  • We may experience volatility in our stock price.
  • We are subject to risks of natural disasters and other catastrophic events.
  • Developments relating to the United Kingdom's (“UK”) exit from European Union membership could adversely impact our business.
  • We may face difficulties managing the effects of any future growth.
  • Reductions in defense spending could adversely affect our business.
  • Anti-takeover provisions in our articles of incorporation, bylaws and provisions of Florida law could delay or prevent a change of control that you may favor.
  • Our financial performance is dependent on the conditions of various industries, including the automotive, aerospace, and heavy-equipment industries, which have from time to time experienced, and may again experience, significant disruptions in the economic environment.
  • Because a significant portion of our revenues and expenses are denominated in foreign currencies, we face significant exposure to foreign exchange rate risk.
  • We may be unable to recognize the anticipated benefits of our Restructuring Plan and our new strategic plan.
  • Changes in tariffs and other export regulations could increase the cost of our products sold to our international customers, which could negatively impact our sales and profitability.
  • We may not be able to achieve financial results within our target goals, and our operating results may fluctuate due to a number of factors, many of which are beyond our control.
  • Future impairments of our goodwill, intangible and long-lived assets could adversely affect our financial condition and results of operations.
  • If we fail to establish and maintain effective internal controls over financial reporting, our financial statements could contain a material misstatement, which could adversely affect our business and financial condition.
  • Our financial results may be adversely affected by exposure to additional tax liabilities.
  • A valuation allowance may be required for our U.S. deferred tax assets, which may reduce our earnings and have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.
  • Product failures or product availability and performance issues could result in increased warranty costs and delays in new product introductions and enhancements, and could adversely affect our business and financial condition.
  • Increases in the cost of raw materials or components used in our products could negatively impact our business and profitability.
  • We compete with manufacturers of measurement systems and traditional measurement devices, many of which have more resources than us and may develop new products and technologies.
  • We are subject to the impact of governmental and other similar certification processes and regulations, which could adversely affect our business and results of operations.
  • Our sales to the U.S. government are subject to compliance with regulatory and contractual requirements, and noncompliance could expose us to liability or impede current or future business.
  • Any failure to comply with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act or similar anti-corruption laws could subject us to fines and penalties.
  • Any failure to protect our patents and proprietary rights in the United States and foreign countries could adversely affect our revenues.
  • Claims from others that we infringed on their intellectual property rights may adversely affect our business and financial condition.
  • Our dependence on suppliers for materials could impair our ability to manufacture our products.
  • Risks generally associated with our information systems could adversely affect our business reputation and results of operations.
