certain assumptions, which we believe to be reasonable under the

regarding changes in the macro environment, fluctuations in foreign
currency rates, changes in the competitive landscape and consumer
behavior and the effect of consolidation in the office products
industry, as well as other factors described below.

compliance risks and creates more exposure to economic volatility,
unstable political conditions and civil unrest; our ability to grow
profitably through acquisitions; our ability to realize the
synergies, growth opportunities and other potential benefits of the
Pelikan Artline and Esselte acquisitions and successfully integrate
Pelikan Artline and Esselte with our existing operations; our
