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 continued high rates of
unemployment, interest rate and currency fluctuations, higher fuel and
other energy costs, slower growth in personal income, changes in
consumer spending, changes in the rate of 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, such
as the psychological effect of falling home prices, and in the level of
repairs, remodeling, and additions to existing homes, as well as a
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 changes in existing
or new laws on regulations that affect employment/labor, trade, product
safety, transportation/logistics, energy costs, health care, tax or
environmental issues; and (viii) respond to unanticipated weather
conditions that could adversely affect sales. In addition, we could
experience additional impairment losses if the actual results of our
operating stores are not consistent with the assumptions and judgments
we have made in estimating future cash flows and determining asset fair
values. 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).
