This Current Report on Form 8-K (this “Report”) contains statements that may be characterized as “forward-looking” within the meaning of the federal securities laws, which includes information concerning one or more of the Company's plans, objectives, goals, strategies, and other information that is not historical information. When used in this Report, the words “expects,” “anticipates,” “will,” “plan” and variations of such words or similar expressions are intended to identify such statements. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, statements relating to the Company’s expectations regarding iMS' ongoing

operations and its plans to optimize its portfolio of retail locations, the causes, length and outcome of the iMS Chapter 11 Proceedings, the Company’s review of strategic alternatives related to iMS, and the impact of the iMS bankruptcy on the Company’s results of operation, liquidity or financial position. Any forward-looking statements contained herein are based upon current expectations and beliefs and various assumptions. There can be no assurance that the Company will realize these expectations or that these beliefs will prove correct.
Numerous factors, many of which are beyond the Company's control, could cause actual results to differ materially from any that may be expressed as forward-looking statements in this Report. These risk factors include risks associated with the causes, length and outcome of the iMS Chapter 11 Proceedings; the approval of the DIP Financing by the Bankruptcy Court; the performance of iMS’ on-going operations, including its ability to exit underperforming locations, retain employees, suppliers and customers, and conduct business as usual; iMS' ability to fund its on-going operations through the DIP Financing; iMS' use of the funds anticipated to be received in the DIP Financing; iMS' ability to control costs during the iMS Chapter 11 Proceedings; the outcome of the Company's review of strategic alternatives related to iMS; general economic, financial and industry conditions, particularly conditions relating to the financial performance and related credit issues present in the retail sector, as well as consumer confidence and the availability of consumer financing; changes in interest rates; the impact of the macroeconomic environment in both the U.S. and internationally on iMS and the Company; uncertainties arising from national and global events; industry competition; the effects of consolidation of retailers on revenues and costs; and consumer acceptance and changes in demand for the Company's products.
Other potential risk factors include the risk factors discussed under the heading "Risk Factors" under ITEM 1A of Part 1 of the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 and the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2018.
