Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition
On March 1, 2013, we issued a press release announcing the results of our operations for the fourth quarter and full year of 2012 (the “Press Release”). The Press Release is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1. Today we will hold an earnings conference call at 10:00 am Pacific Standard Time (1:00 pm Eastern Standard Time), which will be broadcast on our website www.supind.com. Further information regarding the earnings conference call and how to access the call is set forth in the Press Release, which is incorporated herein by reference. In accordance with General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K, the information in this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1, shall not be deemed to be "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, and shall not be incorporated by reference into any registration statement or other document filed under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filings.
This Current Report on Form 8-K contains statements that are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements, which include, but are not limited to, the company's plans to construct a new manufacturing facility in Mexico, the location, cost, capacity or time of groundbreaking for a new manufacturing facility and the related impact on the company's operating performance and financial condition, future liquidity and credit options, future capital spending for existing operations, enhancing existing operations, and improving performance in U.S. plants, are based on current expectations, estimates and projections about the company's business based, in part, on assumptions made by management. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or forecasted in such forward-looking statements due to numerous factors and risks discussed from time to time in the company's Securities and Exchange Commission filings and reports, including the company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for 2011. These factors and risks relate to items including, but not limited to, general automotive industry and market conditions and growth rates, general domestic and international economic conditions, as well as the company's ability to improve operating performance. Such forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which they are made and the company does not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this release.
