“The inevitable rise in the prices of our products due to the additional duties would most likely result in a meaningful reduction of our sales volume in the United States. This would impede our ability to maintain our financial commitments and curtail our investment in new research and development activities. Consequently, our ability to develop new and innovative products for U.S. consumers and create new intellectual property in the United States will be diminished, which could ultimately lead to increased manufacturing and sales of products with less U.S. design work and innovation. This would result in the delay or elimination of new products and would decrease the amount of new products we can provide for sale to U.S. consumers. Unfortunately, we also may be forced, at least in the short term, to consider taking action with respect to U.S. employees, including freezing the hiring of more employees in United States, which would slow down our dynamic expansion.”
