“As a relatively small business, the direct financial impact of the 25% tariffs, which apply to a majority of our product lines, will significantly harm our business, regardless of whether we select to absorb the costs or pass them through to our customers. If we select to absorb the additional costs in order to remain competitive with much larger companies who will be able to withstand such variances in their larger portfolios of business, our company profitability is completely eliminated. If, on the other hand, we select to pass on the additional cost to our business customers, which is a very large majority of our business, Cleva will not be able to compete in the marketplace against the pricing of those much larger competitors who can absorb the tariff impacts, and therefore we will lose a market share which has been hard fought ground. Either way, our small company will be in extreme jeopardy.”
