the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act
of 1995 provides a safe harbor for forward-looking statements. Forward-looking
statements are based on management’s current expectations, estimates,
assumptions and beliefs about future events, conditions and financial
performance. Forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties
and other factors, many of which are outside our control and could cause
actual results to differ materially from such statements. Any statement that
is not historical in nature is a forward-looking statement. We may identify
forward-looking statements with words and phrases such as “expects,”
“projects,” “estimates,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “could,” “may,” “will,”
“plans to,” “intend,” “should” and similar expressions. These risks,
uncertainties and other factors include, but are not limited to, deterioration
in general economic conditions, both domestic and international, that may
adversely affect our business; fluctuations in availability and prices of raw
materials, including raw material shortages and other supply chain
disruptions, and the inability to pass along or delays in passing along raw
material cost increases to our customers; dependence of internal sales and
earnings growth on business cycles affecting our customers and growth in the
domestic and international coatings industry; market share loss to, and
pricing or margin pressure from, larger competitors with greater financial
resources; significant indebtedness that restricts the use of cash flow from
operations for acquisitions and other investments; dependence on acquisitions
for growth, and risks related to future acquisitions, including adverse
changes in the results of acquired businesses, the assumption of unforeseen
liabilities and disruptions resulting from the integration of acquisitions;
risks and uncertainties associated with operations and achievement of
profitable growth in developing markets, including Asia and Central and South
America; loss of business with key customers; damage to our reputation and
business resulting from product claims or recalls, litigation, customer
perception and other matters; our ability to respond to technology changes and
to protect our technology; changes in governmental regulation, including more
stringent environmental, health and safety regulations; our reliance on the
efforts of vendors, government agencies, utilities and other third parties to
achieve adequate compliance and avoid disruption of our business; unusual
weather conditions adversely affecting sales; changes in accounting policies
and standards and taxation requirements such as new tax laws or revised tax
law interpretations; the nature, cost and outcome of pending and future
litigation and other legal proceedings; and civil unrest and the outbreak of
war and other significant national and international events. We undertake no
obligation to subsequently revise any forward-looking statement to reflect new
information, events or circumstances after the date of such statement, except
