In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terms such as “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “expects,” “intends,” “suggests,” “targets,” “contemplates,” “projects,” “predicts,” “may,” “might,” “plan,” “would,” “should,” “could,” “may,” “can,” “potential,” “continue,” “objective,” or the negative of those terms, or similar expressions intended to identify forward-looking statements. However, not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. Specific forward-looking statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q include statements regarding:

the impact of recently adopted accounting standards on our financial statements and related disclosures;
our future lease payments;
our future expected amortization expense;
our expectation that the unrecognized compensation expense related to unvested RSUs and PSUs will be recognized over a weighted average remaining contractual term of 1.2 years;
our estimate of annual expense under our lease after the assignement of such lease to us, which increase in expense we expect will be entirely offset by savings from recent facility consolidations and efficencies gained in our distribution processes;
our expectation for increase of right-of-use asset on our consolidated balance sheet when the lease assignment to us is effective and our expectation to receive tax and other incentives from federal, state, and local governmental authorities previously received by our former parent following the assignment of the lease to us;
the results reported in our condensed consolidated financial statements may not be indicative of results that may be expected for the entire fiscal year;
our belief that Adjusted EBITDAS is useful to understanding our operating results and the ongoing performance of our underlying business, as Adjusted EBITDAS provides information on our ability to meet our capital expenditure and working capital requirements, and isalso an indicator of profitability;
our belief that reporting Adjusted EBITDAS provides additional transparency and comparability to our operating results;
our belief that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDAS is useful to investors because it is frequently used by analysts, investors, and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry;
the availability of equity or debt financing to us on acceptable terms or at all;
our expectation of spending approximately $6.0 million to $6.5 million for capital expenditures in fiscal 2023;
our expectation for new product introductions that will launch later in the year;
our future capital requirements' dependency on many factors, including net sales, the timing and extent of spending to support product development efforts, the expansion of sales and marketing activities, the timing of introductions of new products and enhancements to existing products, the capital needed to operate as an independent publicly traded company, including the establishment of our enterprise resource planning systems, any acquisitions or strategic investments that we may determine to make, our ability to navigate through the business impacts from the coronavirus, or COVID-19 pandemic, and related aftermath, and changes in consumer spending, which is sensitive to economic conditions and other factors;
the possibility that our ability to take advantage of unexpected business opportunities or to respond to competitive pressures could be limited or severely constrained if sufficient funds are not available or are not available on acceptable terms;
our expectation to continue to utilize our cash flows to invest in our business, including research and development for new product initiatives; hire additional employees; fund growth strategies, including any potential acquisitions; to make payments on our $10.0 million of borrowings under our revolving line of credit and any indebtedness we may incur over time; implement our enterprise resource planning systems; and to repurchase shares of our common stock where we have authorization to do so;
our estimation that our information technology infrastructure will cost a total of approximately $8.8 million over a period that spans fiscal 2022 and fiscal 2023;
our expectation for capital expenditures of approximately $2.2 million and one-time operating expenses of approximately $1.7 million in fiscal 2023;
our expectation to spend approximately $500,000 of duplicative expenses in fiscal 2023 related to our information technology infrastructure and enterprise resource planning platforms in parallel during the system changeover period; and
our expectation for inventory levels to decline in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 as we reduce our planned inventory pruchases, other than purchases for new product introductions, and a return to typical seasonality trends for our business.

 


 

A number of factors could cause our actual results to differ materially from those indicated by the forward-looking statements. Such factors include, among others, the following:

potential disruptions in our suppliers’ ability to source the raw materials necessary for the production of our products, disruptions and delays in the manufacture of our products, and difficulties encountered by retailers and other components of the distribution channel for our products including delivery of product stemming from port congestion and related transportation challenges, which may continue to be adversely impacted by the multitude of the effects of COVID-19 and the hostilities in the Ukraine;
lower levels of consumer spending in general and specific to our products or product categories;
our ability to introduce new products that are successful in the marketplace;
interruptions of our arrangements with third-party contract manufacturers and freight carriers that disrupt our ability to fill our customers’ orders;
increases in costs or decreases in availability of finished products, product components, and raw materials;
our ability to maintain or strengthen our brand recognition and reputation;
the ability to forecast demand for our products accurately;
our ability to continue to expand our e-commerce business;
our ability to compete in a highly competitive market;
our dependence on large customers;
our ability to attract and retain talent;
an increase of emphasis on private label products by our customers;
pricing pressures by our customers;
our ability to collect our accounts receivable;
the potential for product recalls, product liability, and other claims or lawsuits against us;
our ability to protect our intellectual property;
inventory levels, both internally and in the distribution channel, in excess of demand;
our ability to identify acquisition candidates, to complete acquisitions of potential acquisition candidates, to integrate acquired businesses with our business, to achieve success with acquired companies, and to realize the benefits of acquisitions in a manner consistent with our expectations;
the performance and security of our information systems;
our ability to comply with any applicable foreign laws or regulations and the effect of increased protective tariffs;
economic, social, political, legislative, and regulatory factors;
the potential for increased regulation of firearms and firearms- related products;
the effect of political pressures on firearm laws and regulations;
the potential impact on our business and operations from the results of federal, state, and local elections and the policies that may be implemented as a result thereof;
our ability to realize the anticipated benefits of being a separate, public company;
future investments for capital expenditures, liquidity and anticipated cash needs and availability;
the potential for impairment charges;
estimated amortization expense of intangible assets for future periods;
actions of social or economic activists that could, directly or indirectly, have an adverse effect on our business;
disruptions caused by social unrest, including related protests or disturbances;
our assessment of factors relating to the valuation of assets acquired and liabilities assumed in acquisitions, the timing for such evaluations, and the potential adjustment in such evaluations; and
other factors detailed from time to time in our reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or the SEC, including information contained herein.

All forward-looking statements included herein, or in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, are based on information available to us as of their respective dates and speak only as of such dates. Except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of such statements. The forward-looking statements contained in or incorporated by reference into this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, or in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, reflect our views as of the date of these reports about future events and are subject to risks, uncertainties, assumptions, and changes in circumstances that may cause our actual results, performance, or achievements to differ significantly from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statement. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future events, results, performance, or achievements.

We are subject to the informational requirements of the Exchange Act, and we file or furnish reports, proxy statements, and other information with the SEC. Such reports and other information we file with the SEC are available free of charge at https://ir.aob.com/financial-information/sec-filings as soon as practicable after such reports are available on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov.
