Safe Harbor For Forward-Looking Statements

Statements in this Form 10-Q that are not purely historical, including statements which express the Company’s belief, anticipation or expectation about future events, are forward-looking statements. Forward looking statements involve certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from such statements. In addition to the risk factors discussed in Item 1 (Business, under the headings Raw Materials, Seasonality, Competition, Government Regulation and Environmental Matters, and International Operations) of the Company’s 2004 Annual Report on Form 10-K other important factors which have impacted and could impact the Company’s operations and results, include:

The Company’s financial leverage and the operating and financial restrictions imposed by the instruments governing its indebtedness may limit or prohibit its ability to incur additional indebtedness, create liens, sell assets, engage in mergers, acquisitions or joint ventures, pay cash dividends, or make certain other payments; the Company’s leverage and such restrictions could limit its ability to respond to changing business or economic conditions, inability to meet debt obligations when due could impair its ability to finance operations and could result in default;

(2) The successful expansion through acquisitions, in which Spartech looks for candidates that can complement its existing product lines, expand geographic coverage, and provide superior shareholder returns, is not assured. Acquiring businesses that meet these criteria continues to be an important element of the Company’s business strategy. Some of the Company’s major competitors have similar growth strategies. As a result, competition for qualifying acquisition candidates is increasing and there can be no assurance that such future candidates will exist on terms agreeable to the Company. Furthermore, integrating acquired businesses requires significant management time and skill and places additional demands on Company operations and financial resources. If we are unable to achieve the anticipated synergies, the interest and other expenses from our acquisitions could exceed the net income we derive from the acquired operations, which could reduce our net income.

(3) Our products are sold in a number of end markets which tend to be cyclical in nature, including transportation, building and construction, bath/pool and spa, and electronics and appliances. A downturn in one or more of these end markets could have a material adverse effect on our sales and operating profit; and

(4) Our implementation of planned restructurings will impact our ability to realize estimated cost savings. The actual cost savings may differ from our estimates depending upon the level of success of the implementation.
