These forward-looking statements are based on our current expectations and beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effect on us and do not include the impact of future acquisitions. While management believes that these forward-looking statements are reasonable as and when made, there can be no assurance that future developments affecting us will be those that we anticipate. Our forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties (some of which are beyond our control) and assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially. The forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this presentation. Investors are cautioned not to rely unduly upon these forward-looking statements. The Company undertakes no obligation to update these forward-looking statements, except as required by law. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, general economic and business conditions, which will, among other things, affect demand for new residential and commercial construction; our ability to successfully identify, manage, and integrate acquisitions; the cyclical nature of, and changes in, the real estate and construction markets, including pricing changes by our competitors; governmental requirements and initiatives, including those related to mortgage lending or mortgage financing, funding for public or infrastructure construction, land usage, and environmental, health, and safety matters; disruptions, uncertainties or volatility in the credit markets that may limit our, our suppliers' and our customers' access to capital; our ability to successfully implement our operating strategy; weather conditions; our substantial indebtedness and the restrictions imposed on us by the terms of our indebtedness; our ability to maintain favorable relationships with third parties who supply us with equipment and essential supplies; our ability to retain key personnel and maintain satisfactory labor relations; and product liability, property damage, and other claims and insurance coverage issues. For additional information regarding known material factors that could cause our actual results to differ from our projected results, please see “Risk Factors” in our Form 10-K and our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
