This webcast contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of
Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended and Section 21E of
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. All statements other
than those reciting historic fact are statements that could be
"forward-looking statements" under the Act. Such forward-looking
statements may be included during discussions, or displayed on materials
used therein, regarding the Company's future operations and performance;
proposed new locations, products, services, or developments; conditions
or performance of the domestic economy; and any statement of an
assumption underlying any of the foregoing. Statements containing words
such as "expects," "plans," "strategy," "projects," "believes,"
"opportunity," "anticipates," "desires," and similar expressions are
intended to highlight or indicate "forward-looking statements." Although
management believes that the expectations, opinions, projections, and
comments reflected in its forward-looking statements are reasonable, it
can give no assurance that such statements will prove to be correct. A
wide variety of potential risks, uncertainties, and other factors could
materially affect our ability to achieve the results expressed or
implied by our forward-looking statements including, but not limited to,
changes in general economic conditions, such as interest rate and
currency fluctuations, higher fuel and other energy costs, slower growth
in personal income and consumer spending, declining housing turnover,
the availability and increasing regulation of consumer credit and
mortgage financing, inflation or deflation of commodity prices and other
factors which can negatively affect our customers, as well as the
Company's ability to: (i) respond to adverse trends in the housing
industry and the level of repairs, remodeling, and additions to existing
homes, as well as general reduction in commercial building activity;
(ii) secure, develop, and otherwise implement new technologies and
processes designed to enhance our efficiency and competitiveness; (iii)
attract, train, and retain highly-qualified associates; (iv) locate,
secure, and successfully develop new sites for store development
particularly in major metropolitan markets; (v) respond to fluctuations
in the prices and availability of services, supplies, and products; (vi)
respond to the growth and impact of competition; (vii) address legal and
regulatory developments; and (viii) respond to unanticipated weather
conditions that could adversely affect sales. Additional information
regarding the risks and uncertainties which may affect our business
operations and financial performance can be found in our filings with
the Securities and Exchange Commission (which are available through the
Company's web site).
