events (including statements about future financial and operating
performance) are forward-looking statements based on TeleTech's current
expectations. Actual results and events in future periods could differ
materially from those projected in these forward-looking statements
because of a number of risks and uncertainties including: achieving
estimated revenue from new, renewed and expanded client business as
volumes may not materialize as forecasted, especially due to the global
economic slowdown; the ability to close and ramp new business
opportunities that are currently being pursued or that are in the final
stages with existing and/or potential clients; our ability to execute
our growth plans, including the successful integration of acquired
companies and the sales of new products; the possibility of lower
revenue or price pressure from our clients experiencing a business
downturn or merger in their business; greater than anticipated
competition in the customer management industry, causing adverse pricing
and more stringent contractual terms; risks associated with losing or
not renewing client relationships, particularly large client agreements,
or early termination of a client agreement; the risk of losing clients
due to consolidation in the industries we serve; consumers' concerns or
adverse publicity regarding our clients' products; our ability to find
cost-effective locations, obtain favorable lease terms and build or
retrofit facilities in a timely and economic manner; risks associated
with business interruption due to weather, fires, pandemic, or
terrorist-related events; risks associated with attracting and retaining
cost-effective labor at our delivery centers; the possibility of asset
impairments and restructuring charges; risks associated with changes in
foreign currency exchange rates; economic or political changes affecting
the countries in which we operate; changes in accounting policies and
practices promulgated by standard setting bodies; and new legislation or
government regulation that adversely impacts our tax obligations, health
care costs or the customer management industry. A detailed discussion of
these and other risk factors that could affect our results is included
