(d) Exhibits

99.1 Press Release of the Company dated February 12, 2014.

Certain statements made in this Current Report on Form 8-K are "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. We intend such forward-looking statements to be covered by the safe harbor provisions for forward-looking statements contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, and are including this statement for purposes of invoking these safe harbor provisions. These forward-looking statements, which are based on certain assumptions and describe future plans, strategies and expectations of the Company, are generally identifiable by use of the words "will," "believe," "expect," "intend," "anticipate," "estimate," "forecast," "project," "plan," or similar expressions. In particular, our business outlook is based on certain assumptions which we believe are reasonable under the circumstances. These include, without limitation, assumptions regarding changes in the macro environment, fluctuations in foreign currency rates, changes in the competitive landscape and consumer behavior and the effect of consolidation in the office products industry, as well as, other factors described below.
Our ability to predict results or the actual effect of future plans or strategies is inherently uncertain. Because actual results may differ from those predicted by such forward-looking statements, you should not place undue reliance on them when deciding whether to buy, sell or hold the Company's securities. Our forward-looking statements are made as of the date hereof and we undertake no obligation to update these forward-looking statements in the future.
Among the factors that could affect our results or cause our plans, actions and results to differ materially from current outlook or expectations are: the concentration of our business with a relatively limited number of customers, and the impact of a loss or bankruptcy of a major customer or a substantial reduction in sales to a major customer; the further consolidation of the office products industry and further consolidation of our customers, including the anticipated merger of Office Depot and OfficeMax; decisions made by our large and sophisticated customers, including decisions to expand the sourcing of their own private label products or otherwise change their merchandising strategies; decisions by our competitors, including taking advantage of low entry barriers to expand their introduction and production of competing products; decisions made by end-users of our products, such as whether to purchase lowered-priced, substitute or alternative products, including electronic versions of our time management and planning products or private label products; our ability to meet the competitive challenges faced by our Computer Products business which is characterized by rapid change, including changes in technology and short product life cycles and is dependent on the introduction of third party manufacturers of new equipment to drive demand in its tablet and smartphone and PC accessory businesses; commercial and consumer spending decisions during periods of economic uncertainty; the continued integration of the Mead Consumer and Office Products division with our business, operations and culture, and the ability to realize cost synergies, growth opportunities and other potential benefits of the merger; our ability to successfully expand our business in new, developing and emerging markets and sales channels; litigation or legal proceedings; the risks associated with outsourcing production of certain of our products to suppliers in China and other Asia-Pacific countries; the development, introduction and acceptance of new products in the office and school products markets, and the decline in the use of paper-based dated time management and productivity tools; material disruptions at one of our or our suppliers' major manufacturing or distribution facilities; material failure, inadequacy or interruption of our information technology systems; the risks associated with seasonality, and foreign currency, interest rate and commodity and labor cost fluctuations; any impairment of our goodwill or other intangible assets; our ability to secure, protect and maintain rights to intellectual property; our ability to retain key employees; risks associated with our substantial indebtedness; and other risks and uncertainties described in "Part I, Item 1A. Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012, as updated in "Part II, Item 1A. Risk Factors" in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 and in "Part II, Items 1A, Risk Factors" in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, and in other reports we file with the SEC.
