Risks and Considerations

  • Acquisition/Integration - The Company actively evaluates potential acquisitions as part of its growth strategy. Acquisitions pursued by the Company could be dilutive to financial results and result in a difficult, dilutive or expensive integration.
  • Acquisition/Integration - The Company recently completed acquisition(s). If the Company fails to successfully integrate the acquisition, the deal may lead to disappointing returns.
  • Asset Quality - Puerto Rico is in the midst of a recession that shows no signs of ending soon. The longer the recession continues, the greater the likelihood that credit quality issues will get deeper and last longer.
  • Currency Exposure - Since the Company purchases its finished goods from foreign manufacturers and sell its products in transactions denominated in U.S dollars, a weakening of the U.S dollar could negatively impact the Company.
  • Execution - Management may not execute well on its restructuring efforts as it allocates capital and human resources towards acquisitions and related integration, possibly resulting in lower margins and cash flow.
  • Financial Results - The Company has a history of operating losses. Although the Company is focused on achieving profitability, there are no assurances that the Company will meet its goals or be able to sustain profitability in future periods.
  • Industry Change - The industry is subject to rapid technological change.
  • Insider Ownership - Directors and executive officers collectively own a significant percentage of the Company. While this may align interest with other shareholders, investors might view a future sale by any director or officer negatively.
  • International Operations - The Company derives a significant portion of its revenues from outside the United States. The Company is subject to foreign exchange risk and the risks inherent in managing a global Company.
  • Product Concentration - A large percentage of the Company's revenues are from one line of products. Any weakness in those sales would have a significant negative impact on the Company's results.
  • General Industry - The Company could miss our estimates and/or their financial guidance.
  • Sales Cycle - The Company's sales cycle could lengthen beyond what is normal.
  • Further Potential Risks - See the Company's SEC filings, particularly its 10-K filing, for a discussion of further potential risks.
