This press release may contain "forward-looking statements" as defined under securities laws. Actual results may differ materially and adversely from those described herein depending on a number of factors including, but not limited to, the following risks: the market acceptance of our products; we face aggressive competition in our business; acquisitions could be difficult to integrate, disrupt our business and harm our operating results; we may lose a large customer or suffer a reduction in orders from a large customer; we must have innovative, technologically superior products to compete effectively; our products, due to their complexity, may contain errors or defects that are only discovered after sales by our customers, thus harming our reputation and business; we may have issues with intellectual property; and we have important international operations, particularly in Germany and Australia, which expose us to a variety of risks that could result in lower sales and operating results. For additional information regarding the risks inherent in our business, please see "Factors That May Affect Future Performance" included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2005, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
