Forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including the satisfaction of the conditions of the closing of the public offering; market conditions; the possibility that the expected growth of our business will not be realized, or will not be realized within expected time periods, due to, among other things, the failure to successfully integrate acquired businesses into our business and operational systems; the effect of acquisitions on customer and supplier relationships or the failure to retain and expand those relationships; the success or failure of other business development efforts; our financial condition and results of operations; our ability to accurately predict future revenues for the purpose of appropriately budgeting and adjusting our expenses; our ability to diversify our customer base and develop relationships in new markets; our ability to scale our technology into new markets and applications; the effects of competition on our business, including actions of competitors with an established presence and resources in markets we hope to penetrate, including silicon carbide markets; the level of demand in our customers’ end markets, both generally and with respect to successive generations of products or technology; our ability to attract, train and retain key qualified personnel; changes in government trade policies, including the imposition of tariffs; the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business, results of operations and financial condition; the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global economy, including but not limited to our supply chain and the supply chains of customers and suppliers; regulatory developments in the United States and foreign countries; and our ability to protect our intellectual property rights.
