On February 18, 2015, Dorman Products, Inc. (the Company) issued a press release announcing its operating results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 27, 2014. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated by reference herein.
Certain statements in this document constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Federal Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including statements related to future growth rates and the repurchase programs. These statements are neither promises or guarantees and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those stated or implied by the forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, risks relating to the Companys ability to implement and make appropriate, timely and beneficial decisions as to when, how and if to purchase shares under the repurchase program; and other risks described in the Companys filings with the SEC. While forward-looking statements sometimes are presented with numerical specificity, they are based on various assumptions made by management regarding future circumstances over many of which the Company has little or no control. Forward-looking statements may be identified by words including anticipate, believe, estimate, expect, and similar expressions. The Company cautions readers that forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, those relating to future business prospects, revenues, working capital, liquidity, and income, are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that would cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ from forward-looking statements include but are not limited to: (i) competition in the automotive aftermarket; (ii) unfavorable economic conditions; (iii) the loss or decrease in sales among one of our top customers; (iv) customer consolidation in the automotive aftermarket leading to less favorable customer contract terms; (v) the cancellation or rescheduling of orders; (vi) foreign currency fluctuations and our dependence on foreign suppliers; (vii) extended credit to customers who may be unable to pay; (viii) the loss of a key vendor; (ix) limited customer shelf space; (x) reliance on new product development; (xi) patent filings made by original equipment manufacturers continuing to increase; (xii) quality problems with product after their production and sale to customers; (xiii) loss of third party transportation providers on whom we depend; (xiv) improperly executed, or unrealized cost savings from, our on-going information technology initiatives; (xv) unfavorable results of legal proceedings; (xvi) dependence on senior management and control by officers, directors, and family members; (xvii) operations may be subject to quarter fluctuations and disruptions from events beyond our control. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those anticipated, estimated or projected. For additional information concerning factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the information contained in this report, reference is made to the information in Part I, Item 1A Risk Factors in the Companys Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 28, 2013. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Such statements speak only as to the date on which they are made, and we undertake no obligation to update publicly or revise any forward-looking statement, regardless of future developments or availability of new information.
