agencies, the SEC, the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, the
Financial Accounting Standards Board or other accounting standards setters;
possible other-than-temporary impairments of securities held by the Company;
the impact of current governmental efforts to restructure the U.S. financial
regulatory system; changes in consumer spending, borrowing and savings habits;
