The vending industry is highly competitive. We compete in both the vending manufacturing and vending operations segment of the industry with companies that offer the same services that we do. Many of our competitors have significantly greater resources than we do. Although we believe we have an competitive advantage based upon the lower pricing of our products, a substantial decline in price could adversely affect consumer demand for our products and reduce our competitive advantage. Although we believe that there are significant barriers to entry to new competitors in the vending market due to, among other things, the substantial capital outlay required to purchase the number of machines needed to achieve competitive operating efficiencies, a competitor with significant financial resources may be able to compete with us. There can be no assurance that any competitors will not be able to raise the required capital to effectively compete with us. In addition, we may face new competition as we seek to expand into international markets and develop new products, services and enhancements. Many of the competitors have greater experience than we do in operating in these international markets. Moreover, new products that we intend to develop, such as advertising, may subject us to competition from companies with significantly greater technological resources and experience. Many of our potential competitors have longer operating histories, greater name recognition, larger customer bases and significantly greater financial, technical, marketing and public relations resources than we have. These competitors may be able to undertake more extensive marketing campaigns, adopt more aggressive pricing policies and make more attractive offers to consumers and businesses. Our competitors might succeed in developing technologies, products or services that are more effective, less costly or more widely used than those that have been or are being developed by us or that would render our technologies or products obsolete or noncompetitive. We cannot be certain that we will be able to compete effectively with current or future competitors. Competitive pressures could seriously harm our business, financial condition and results of operations and our ability to achieve sufficient cash flow to service our indebtedness.
