NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(unaudited)
NOTE 1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of PGT, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiary (collectively the “Company”) after elimination of intercompany accounts and transactions. These statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and do not include all of the information and footnotes required by United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. Operating results for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the remainder of the current year or for any future periods.
The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 30, 2006 is derived from the audited consolidated financial statements but does not include all disclosures required by GAAP. This condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 30, 2006 and the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included herein should be read in conjunction with the more detailed audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 30, 2006 included in the Company’s most recent annual report on Form 10-K. Accounting policies used in the preparation of these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are consistent with the accounting policies described in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements included in the Company’s most recently filed Form 10-K.
Stock Split
On June 5, 2006, our Board of Directors and our stockholders approved a 662.07889-for-1 stock split of our common stock and approved increasing the number of shares of common stock that the Company is authorized to issue to 200.0 million.
After the stock split, effective June 6, 2006, each holder of record held 662.07889 shares of common stock for every 1 share held immediately prior to the effective date. As a result of the stock split, the Board of Directors also exercised its discretion under the anti-dilution provisions of our 2004 Stock Incentive Plan to adjust the number of shares underlying stock options and the related exercise prices to reflect the change in the per share value and outstanding shares on the date of the stock split. The effect of fractional shares is not material.
Following the effective date of the stock split, the par value of the common stock remained at $0.01 per share. As a result, we have increased the common stock in our consolidated balance sheets included herein on a retroactive basis for all periods presented, with a corresponding decrease to additional paid-in capital. All share and per share amounts and related disclosures have also been retroactively adjusted for all periods presented to reflect the 662.07889-for-1 stock split.
NOTE 2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
Fiscal Period
Each of our fiscal quarters ended September 29, 2007 and September 30, 2006 consist of 13 weeks.
Segment Information
Our Company has one operating segment: manufacture and supply of windows and doors.
Accounting Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Critical accounting estimates involved in applying our Company’s accounting policies are those that require management to make assumptions about matters that are uncertain at the time

Table of Contents

the accounting estimate was made and those for which different estimates reasonably could have been used for the current period, or changes in the accounting estimate are reasonably likely to occur from period to period, and could have a material impact on the presentation of our Company’s financial condition, changes in financial condition or results of operations. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates.
Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Revenue recognition
We recognize sales when all of the following criteria have been met: a valid customer order with a fixed price has been received; the product has been delivered and accepted by the customer; and collectibility is reasonably assured. All sales recognized are net of allowances for cash discounts and estimated returns, which are estimated using historical experience.
Warranty Expense
Our Company has warranty obligations with respect to most of our manufactured products. Warranty periods vary by product component. However, the majority of the products sold have warranties on components which range from 1 to 3 years. The reserve for warranties is based on management’s assessment of the cost per service call and the number of service calls expected to be incurred to satisfy warranty obligations on recorded net sales. The reserve is determined after assessing our Company’s warranty history and estimating our future warranty obligations. The following table provides information with respect to our Company’s warranty accrual:

Inventories
Inventories consist principally of raw materials purchased for the manufacture of our products. Our Company has limited finished goods inventory since all products are custom, made-to-order products. Finished goods inventory costs include direct materials, direct labor, and overhead. All inventories are stated at the lower of cost (first-in, first-out method) or market value. The reserve for obsolescence is based on management’s assessment of the amount of inventory that may become obsolete in the future and is determined based on historical usage of the inventory, forecasted usage, specific identification method, and consideration of prevailing economic and industry conditions. Inventories consisted of the following (in thousands):

Stock compensation
We account for stock-based compensation in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 123(R), Share-Based Payment (“SFAS No. 123(R)”). This statement is a fair-value based approach for measuring stock-based

7


Table of Contents

compensation and requires us to recognize the cost of employee and non-employee directors’ services received in exchange for our Company’s equity instruments. Under SFAS No. 123(R), we are required to record compensation expense over an award’s vesting period based on the award’s fair value at the date of grant. We have adopted SFAS No. 123(R) on a prospective basis; accordingly, our financial statements for periods prior to January 1, 2006, do not include compensation cost calculated under the fair value method. We recorded compensation expense for stock based awards of $0.4 million and $0.3 million during the third quarters of 2007 and 2006, respectively. For the nine months ended September 29, 2007 and September 30, 2006, we recorded expense for stock based awards of $1.2 million and $0.3 million, respectively. As of September 29, 2007, there was $0.8 million and $1.0 million of total unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested stock option agreements and non-vested restricted share awards, respectively. These costs are expected to be recognized in earnings on a straight line basis over the weighted average remaining vesting period of 2.4 years.
Stock options granted prior to our Company’s initial public offering were valued using the minimum value method in the pro forma disclosures required by SFAS No. 123, Accounting for Stock Based Compensation . The minimum value method excludes volatility in the calculation of fair value of stock based compensation. In accordance with SFAS No. 123(R), options that were valued using the minimum value method were transitioned to SFAS No. 123(R) using the prospective method. As a result, these options will continue to be accounted for under the same accounting principles (recognition and measurement) originally applied to those awards in the income statement, which for our Company was APB No. 25. Accordingly, the adoption of SFAS No. 123(R) does not result in any compensation cost being recognized for these options.
Goodwill and Other Intangibles
We test goodwill for impairment in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 142, Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets (“SFAS No. 142”). SFAS No. 142 requires that goodwill not be amortized, but instead be tested for impairment at the reporting unit level at least annually and more frequently upon the occurrence of certain events as defined by SFAS No. 142. We have one reporting unit. The annual goodwill impairment test is a two-step process. First, we determine if the carrying value of our related reporting unit exceeds fair value, which would indicate that goodwill may be impaired. Second, if we determine that goodwill may be impaired, we compare the implied fair value of the goodwill determined by allocating our reporting unit’s fair value to all of its assets and liabilities other than goodwill (including any unrecognized intangible assets) to its carrying amount to determine if there is an impairment loss.
We also evaluate intangible assets with indefinite lives for impairment annually, or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that an asset might be impaired. The evaluation is performed by comparing the carrying amount of these assets to their estimated fair value. If the estimated fair value is less than the carrying amount of the intangible assets with indefinite lives, then an impairment charge is recorded to reduce the asset to its estimated fair value. The estimated fair value is generally determined on the basis of discounted future cash flows. The assumptions used in the estimate of fair value are generally consistent with past performance and are also consistent with the projections and assumptions that are used in current Company operating plans. Such assumptions are subject to change as a result of changing economic and competitive conditions.
Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
           Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes
The Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Interpretation No. 48, Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes (“FIN 48”), which clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in the financial statements in accordance with SFAS 109, Accounting for Income Taxes . FIN 48 provides guidance on the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. FIN 48 also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting for interim periods, disclosures, and transition. FIN 48 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2006. Our adoption of FIN 48 did not result in any material impact on our results of operations and financial condition.
Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
           Fair Value Measurements
In September 2006, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 157, Fair Value Measurements (“SFAS No. 157”) , which defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. The provisions of SFAS No. 157 are effective as of the beginning of our Company’s 2008

Table of Contents

fiscal year. We are considering the provisions of SFAS No. 157 and have not determined the impact the application of SFAS No. 157 will have on our financial statements.
In February 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No. 159, The Fair Value Option for Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities (“SFAS No. 159”). SFAS No. 159 permits entities to choose to measure many financial instruments and certain other items at fair value and establishes presentation and disclosure requirements designed to facilitate comparisons between entities that choose different measurement attributes for similar types of assets and liabilities. SFAS No. 159 is effective for our Company beginning in fiscal year 2008. We have not yet determined the impact, if any, from the adoption of SFAS No. 159.
NOTE 3. SHAREHOLDER’S EQUITY
Initial Public Offering
On June 27, 2006, the SEC declared our Company’s registration statement on Form S-1 effective, and our Company completed an initial public offering (“IPO”) of 8,823,529 shares of its common stock at a price of $14.00 per share. Our Company’s common stock began trading on The Nasdaq National Market under the symbol “PGTI” on June 28, 2006. After underwriting discounts of approximately $8.6 million and transaction costs of approximately $2.5 million, net proceeds received by the Company on July 3, 2006, were $112.3 million. Our Company used net IPO proceeds, together with cash on hand, to repay $137.0 million of borrowings under our senior secured credit facilities.
Our Company granted the underwriters an option to purchase up to an additional 1,323,529 shares of common stock at the IPO price, which the underwriters exercised in full on July 27, 2006. After underwriting discounts of approximately $1.3 million, aggregate net proceeds received by the Company on August 1, 2006 were $17.2 million, of which $17.0 million was used to repay a portion of our outstanding debt.
In conjunction with the IPO, our Company’s stockholders approved an amendment and restatement of the Company’s certificate of incorporation. The amended and restated certificate of incorporation provides that the Company is authorized to issue 200.0 million shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, and 10.0 million shares of preferred stock, par value $0.01 per share.
Special Cash Dividends
In February 2006, our Company paid a special cash dividend to our stockholders of $83.5 million. In connection with the payment of this dividend, our Company also made a compensatory cash payment of $26.9 million to stock option holders (including applicable payroll taxes of $0.5 million) in-lieu of adjusting exercise prices, that was recorded as stock compensation expense in the accompanying condensed consolidated statement of operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2006.
NOTE 4. NET INCOME PER COMMON SHARE
Net income per common share (“EPS”) is calculated in accordance with SFAS No. 128, Earnings per Share , which requires the presentation of basic and diluted EPS. Basic EPS is computed using the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted EPS is computed using the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period, plus the dilutive effect of common stock equivalents.
The table below presents the calculation of EPS and a reconciliation of weighted average common shares used in the calculation of basic and diluted EPS for our Company:

NOTE 6. LONG-TERM DEBT
On February 14, 2006, our Company entered into a second amended and restated $235 million senior secured credit facility and a $115 million second lien term loan due August 14, 2012, with a syndicate of banks. The senior secured credit facility is composed of a $30 million revolving credit facility and, initially, a $205 million first lien term loan. As of September 29, 2007 there was $25.3 million available under the revolving credit facility.
The first lien term loan bears interest at a rate equal to an adjusted LIBOR rate plus 3.0% per annum or a base rate plus 2.0% per annum, at our option. The loans under the revolving credit facility bear interest initially, at our option (provided, that all swingline loans shall be base rate loans), at a rate equal to an adjusted LIBOR rate plus 2.75% per annum or a base rate plus 1.75% per annum, and the margins above LIBOR and base rate may decline to 2.00% for LIBOR loans and 1.00% for base rate loans if certain leverage ratios are met. A commitment fee equal to 0.50% per annum accrues on the average daily unused amount of the commitment of each lender under the revolving credit facility and such fee is payable quarterly in arrears. We are also required to pay certain other fees with respect to the senior secured credit facility including (i) letter of credit fees on the aggregate undrawn amount of outstanding letters of credit plus the aggregate principal amount of all letter of credit reimbursement obligations, (ii) a fronting fee to the letter of credit issuing bank and (iii) administrative fees.
The first lien term loan is secured by a perfected first priority pledge of all of the equity interests of our subsidiary and perfected first priority security interests in and mortgages on substantially all of our tangible and intangible assets and those of the guarantors, except, in the case of the stock of a foreign subsidiary, to the extent such pledge would be prohibited by applicable law or would result in materially adverse tax consequences, and subject to such other exceptions as are agreed. The senior secured credit facility contains a

10


Table of Contents

number of covenants that, among other things, restrict our ability and the ability of our subsidiaries to (i) dispose of assets; (ii) change our business; (iii) engage in mergers or consolidations; (iv) make certain acquisitions; (v) pay dividends or repurchase or redeem stock; (vi) incur indebtedness or guarantee obligations and issue preferred and other disqualified stock; (vii) make investments and loans; (viii) incur liens; (ix) engage in certain transactions with affiliates; (x) enter into sale and leaseback transactions; (xi) issue stock or stock options under certain conditions; (xii) amend or prepay subordinated indebtedness and loans under the second lien secured credit facility; (xiii) modify or waive material documents; or (xiv) change our fiscal year. In addition, under the senior secured credit facility, we are required to comply with specified financial ratios and tests, including a minimum interest coverage ratio, a maximum leverage ratio, and maximum capital expenditures.
Borrowings under the new senior secured credit facility and second lien secured credit facility were used to refinance our Company’s existing debt facility, pay a cash dividend to stockholders of $83.5 million, and make a cash compensatory payment of approximately $26.9 million (including applicable payroll taxes of $0.5 million) to stock option holders in connection with such dividend. Approximately $5.1 million of the cash payment to stock option holders was paid to employees whose other compensation is a component of cost of sales. In connection with the refinancing, our Company incurred fees and expenses aggregating $4.5 million that are included as a component of other assets, net and amortized using the effective interest method over the terms of the new senior secured credit facility. In the first quarter of 2006, the total cash payment to stock option holders and unamortized deferred financing costs of $4.6 million related to the prior credit facility were expensed and recorded as stock compensation expense and as a component of interest expense, respectively.
Contractual future maturities of long-term debt outstanding as of September 29, 2007 are as follows (in thousands):

During the first nine months of 2007, we repaid $35.5 million of long term debt with cash on hand. In connection with these repayments, we expensed $0.4 million of unamortized deferred financing costs recorded in interest expense in the consolidated statement of operations. These optional prepayments had the effect of reducing our mandatory principal payments on our first lien term loan from $0.4 million to zero in 2007, from $1.7 million to $0.3 million in 2008, from $1.7 million to $1.3 million in 2009 through 2011, and the final lump sum payment due in 2012 from $158.3 million to $125.7 million.
On an annual basis, our Company is required to compute excess cash flow, as defined in our credit and security agreement with the bank. In periods where there is excess cash flow, our Company is required to make prepayments in an aggregate principal amount determined through reference to a grid based on the leverage ratio. No such prepayments were required for the year ended December 30, 2006. The term note and line of credit require that our Company also maintain compliance with certain restrictive financial covenants, the most restrictive of which requires our Company to maintain a total leverage ratio, as defined in the debt agreement, of not greater than certain predetermined amounts. Our Company believes that we are in compliance with all restrictive financial covenants.

NOTE 8. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
Litigation
Our Company is a party to various legal proceedings in the ordinary course of business. Although the ultimate disposition of those proceedings cannot be predicted with certainty, management believes the outcome of any claim that is pending or threatened, either individually or in the aggregate, will not have a material adverse effect on our results of operations, financial position or cash flows.
NOTE 9. INCOME TAX EXPENSE
The Company or its subsidiary files income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction and various states. With few exceptions, the Company is no longer subject to U.S. federal examinations by tax authorities for years before 2003 and state and local income tax examinations by tax authorities for years before 2003 in states where the Company or a subsidiary has a material tax presence.
The Company adopted the provisions of FASB Interpretation No. 48 (“FIN 48”), Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes, an interpretation of FASB Statement No. 109, Accounting for Income Taxes , on January 1, 2007. In connection with our FIN 48 implementation, we determined that we have no material unrecognized tax benefits and accordingly, no liability was recorded. However, should we accrue for such liabilities when and if they arise in the future, we will recognize interest and penalties associated with uncertain tax positions as part of our income tax provision.
Our effective tax rate was 36.3% for the nine months ended September 29, 2007 and 40.2% for the nine months ended September 30, 2006. The decrease in our effective tax rate was due to an increase in the amount of manufacturing deductions related to the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004 expected to be taken in 2007.
NOTE 10. IMPAIRMENT OF ASSET HELD FOR SALE
In 2006, the Company relocated its vinyl window and door facility from Lexington, NC to Salisbury, NC. As a result of the relocation, we placed our Lexington, NC facility for sale in November 2006. In accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 144 (“SFAS No. 144”), Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets, the Company is required to carry the facility at fair value less costs to sell. As a result of a further decline in the market value of the facility, the Company

12


Table of Contents

recorded a non-cash impairment charge in the second quarter ended June 30, 2007 of approximately $0.8 million. The carrying value of the facility of $1.5 million at September 29, 2007 is included in other current assets in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet.
NOTE 11. RECENT DEVELOPMENT
On October 25, 2007, we announced a restructuring of the Company as a result of an in-depth analysis of the Company’s target markets, internal structure, projected run-rate, and efficiency. The restructuring resulted in a decrease in indirect workforce (overhead) of approximately 17%, which equates to approximately 8% of the Company’s overall employee population, and included employees at both its Venice, Florida and Salisbury, North Carolina locations. The Company believes this restructuring is essential to streamline operations as well as improve processes to drive new product development and sales. As a result of the restructuring, the Company expects to record an estimated restructuring charge between $2.0 million and $2.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2007. No amounts related to this restructuring have been accrued in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements.
ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
The following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations and the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended December 30, 2006 included in our most recent annual report on Form 10-K.
Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This document includes forward-looking statements regarding, among other things, our financial condition and business strategy.

Overview
We are the leading U.S. manufacturer and supplier of residential impact-resistant windows and doors and pioneered the U.S. impact-resistant window and door industry in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew in 1992. Our impact-resistant products, some of which are marketed under the WinGuard brand name, combine heavy-duty aluminum or vinyl frames with laminated glass to provide protection from hurricane-force winds and wind-borne debris by maintaining their structural integrity and preventing penetration by impacting objects. Impact-resistant windows and doors satisfy increasingly stringent building codes in hurricane-prone coastal states and provide

13


Table of Contents

an attractive alternative to shutters and other “active” forms of hurricane protection that require installation and removal before and after each storm. Our current market share in Florida, which is the largest U.S. impact-resistant window and door market, is significantly greater than that of any of our competitors. In addition to our core WinGuard branded product line, we offer a complete range of premium, made-to-order and fully customizable aluminum and vinyl windows and doors primarily targeting the non-impact-resistant market. We manufacture these products in a wide variety of styles, including single hung, horizontal roller, casement, and sliding glass doors, and we also manufacture sliding panels used for enclosing screened-in porches. Our products are sold to both the residential new construction and repair and remodeling end markets.
Our future results of operations will be affected by the following factors, some of which are beyond our control:
    Residential new construction. Our business is driven in part by residential new construction activity. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, U.S. housing starts were 1.8 million in 2006 and 2.1 million in 2005. During the second half of 2006, we saw a significant slowdown in the Florida housing market. At this point, it is unclear if housing activity has hit bottom. Like many building material suppliers in the industry, we will be faced with a challenging operating environment over the near term due to the decline in the housing market. Specifically, housing permits in Florida decreased by approximately 49% in the first nine months of 2007 compared to the first nine months of 2006 and decreased 29% from the second quarter to the third quarter of 2007. According to The Freedonia Group and the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University, housing demand will continue to be supported over the next decade by new household formations, increasing homeownership rates, the size and age of the population, an aging housing stock (approximately 35% of existing homes were built before 1960) and immigration trends. We still believe there are several meaningful trends such as rising immigration rates, growing prevalence of second homes, the aging demographics of the population, relatively low interest rates, and the aging of the housing stock, that indicate housing demand will remain healthy in the long term. Based on these trends and certain other factors, we believe that the current pullback in the housing industry is likely to be temporary and that, as we have proven historically, we will be able to outperform the market during this cyclical downturn and grow our business over the long term.
 
    Home repair and remodeling expenditures. Our business is also driven by the home repair and remodeling market. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, national home repair and remodeling expenditures have increased in 36 of the past 40 years. This growth is mainly the result of the aging U.S. housing stock, increasing home ownership rates and homeowners’ electing to upgrade their existing residences rather than move into a new home. The repair and remodeling component of window and door demand tends to be less cyclical than residential new construction and partially insulates overall window and door sales from the impact of residential new construction cycles.
 
    Adoption and Enforcement of Building Codes . In addition to coastal states that already have adopted building codes requiring wind-borne debris protection, we expect additional states to adopt and enforce similar building codes, which will further expand the market opportunity for our WinGuard branded line of impact-resistant products. The speed with which new states adopt and enforce these building codes will impact our growth opportunities in new geographical markets.
 
    Cost of materials . The prices of our primary raw materials, including aluminum, laminate and glass, are subject to volatility and affect our results of operations when prices rapidly rise or fall within a relatively short period of time. From time to time, we use hedging instruments to manage the market risk of our aluminum costs. From January 1, 2007 to June 7, 2007, we had no outstanding hedges. On June 8, 2007, we entered into aluminum hedges to cover approximately 13% of our forecasted needs through June 2008 at an average price of $2,695 per metric ton. On August 9, 2007, we entered into additional aluminum hedges to cover another approximately 28% of our forecasted needs through August 2008 at an average price of $2,689 per metric ton.
Current Operating Conditions and Outlook
In the first nine months of 2007, housing permits in Florida decreased 49% compared to the first nine months of 2006 and decreased 29% from the second quarter to the third quarter of 2007. In response to the deterioration in the housing market, we have taken a number of steps to maintain profitability and conserve capital. As a result, we adjusted our operating cost structure to more closely align with current demand. In addition, we have decreased our capital spending in 2007. However, we also view this market downturn as an opportunity to gain market share from our competitors. For instance, we have introduced new incentive programs offered to both our distributors and end users. We have also increased marketing and sales efforts in areas outside of our dominant markets, including northern Florida, the Gulf Coast and the Carolinas. Finally, we have introduced new products and expanded product lines to broaden our product offering. As a result of these actions, we continue to outperform the underlying market, however

14


Table of Contents

gross margins have declined to 31.9% and 34.2% for the three and nine months ended September 29, 2007 from 39.9% and 40.2% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2006.
Though the homebuilding industry is currently in a downturn, we believe the long-term outlook for the housing industry is positive due to growth in the underlying demographics. At this point, it is unclear if housing activity has hit bottom. Despite the unfavorable operating conditions, we believe we can continue to grow organically by gaining market share and outperforming our underlying markets. However, we think difficult market conditions affecting our business will continue to have a negative effect on our operating results and year-over-year comparisons in the near term.
Other Developments
Initial Public Offering
On June 27, 2006, the SEC declared our Company’s registration statement on Form S-1 effective, and our Company completed an initial public offering (“IPO”) of 8,823,529 shares of its common stock at a price of $14.00 per share. Our Company’s common stock began trading on The Nasdaq National Market under the symbol “PGTI” on June 28, 2006. After underwriting discounts of approximately $8.6 million and transaction costs of approximately $2.5 million, net proceeds received by the Company on July 3, 2006, were $112.3 million. Our Company used net IPO proceeds, together with cash on hand, to repay $137.0 million of borrowings under our senior secured credit facilities.
Our Company granted the underwriters an option to purchase up to an additional 1,323,529 shares of common stock at the IPO price, which the underwriters exercised in full on July 27, 2006. After underwriting discounts of approximately $1.3 million, aggregate net proceeds received by the Company on August 1, 2006 were $17.2 million of which $17.0 million were used to repay a portion of our outstanding debt.
Stock Split
On June 5, 2006, our Board of Directors and our stockholders approved a 662.07889-for-1 stock split of our common stock and approved increasing the number of shares of common stock that the Company is authorized to issue to 200.0 million.
After the stock split, effective June 6, 2006, each holder of record held 662.07889 shares of common stock for every 1 share held immediately prior to the effective date. As a result of the stock split, the Board of Directors also exercised its discretion under the anti-dilution provisions of the 2004 Plan to adjust the number of shares underlying stock options and the related exercise prices to reflect the change in the per share value and outstanding shares on the date of the stock split. The effect of fractional shares is not material.
Following the effective date of the stock split, the par value of the common stock remained at $0.01 per share. As a result, we increased the common stock in our consolidated balance sheets and statements of shareholders’ equity included herein on a retroactive basis for all periods presented, with a corresponding decrease to additional paid-in capital. All share and per share amounts and related disclosures have also been retroactively adjusted for all periods presented to reflect the 662.07889-for-1 stock split.
Restructuring
On October 25, 2007, we announced a restructuring of the Company as a result of in-depth analysis of the Company’s target markets, internal structure, projected run-rate, and efficiency. The restructuring resulted in a decrease in indirect workforce (overhead) of approximately 17%, which equates to approximately 8% of the Company’s overall employee population, and included employees at both its Venice, Florida and Salisbury, North Carolina locations. The Company believes this restructuring is essential to streamline operations as well as improve processes to drive new product development and sales. As a result of the restructuring, the Company expects to record an estimated restructuring charge between $2.0 million and $2.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2007. No amounts related to this restructuring have been accrued in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements.

During the first nine months of 2007, we continued to execute on our strategy of gaining market share and controlling costs during the current housing downturn. The industry experienced a decline in housing permits in Florida of approximately 49% in the first nine months of 2007 while our revenues declined 26.0%, each as compared to the first nine months of 2006. In addition, gross margin percentage was 34.2% in the first nine months of 2007, compared to 40.2% in the first nine months of 2006. The decline was primarily a result of the significant slowdown in Florida new home construction and rising costs of aluminum. Selling, general and administrative expenses for the first nine months of 2007 decreased by $8.0 million, or 11.6% from the first nine months of 2006, primarily driven by lower distribution costs.

Net sales of WinGuard branded products were $50.1 million for the three months ended September 29, 2007, a decrease of $15.4 million, or 23.5%, from $65.5 million in net sales for the three months ended September 30, 2006. The decrease was mainly due to the decline in new housing. Demand for WinGuard branded products is driven by, among other things, increased enforcement of strict building codes mandating the use of impact-resistant products, increased consumer and homebuilder awareness of the advantages provided by impact-resistant windows and doors over “active” forms of hurricane protection, and our successful marketing efforts.
Net sales of Other Window and Door Products were $22.1 million for the three months ended September 29, 2007, a decrease of $10.7 million, or 32.6%, from $32.8 million in net sales for the three months ended September 30, 2006. The decrease was mainly due to the decline in new home construction. New housing demand has traditionally impacted sales of our Other Window and Door Products more than our WinGuard Window and Door Products.

Gross margin
Gross margin was $23.1 million for the three months ended September 29, 2007, a decrease of $16.1 million, or 41.2%, from $39.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2006. The decrease is mainly due to margin loss associated with lower sales volumes and the impact of higher costs of aluminum offset in part by a higher mix of our WinGuard branded products, which carry a higher margin than our Other Window and Door Products. Our WinGuard branded products increased as a percentage of our total net sales to 69.4%, compared to 66.6% in the three months ended September 30, 2006. The gross margin percentage was 31.9% for the three months ended September 29, 2007 compared to 39.9% for the three months ended September 30, 2006.
Selling, general and administrative expenses
Selling, general and administrative expenses were $18.4 million for the three months ended September 29, 2007, a decrease of $4.2 million, from $22.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2006. This decrease was mainly due to a $2.0 million decrease in commissions, incentive compensation and other personnel related costs and a $1.3 million decrease in distribution costs both as a result of lower volumes, a $0.6 million decrease in marketing costs primarily due to a lower level of advertising, a $0.4 million decrease in other general and administrative costs due to cost saving measures taken in the third quarter of 2007 and a $0.3 million decrease in bad debt expenses as a result of an improved aging profile on accounts receivable. These decreases were partially offset by a $0.4 million increase in public-company costs, primarily due to the costs incurred to attain compliance with Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (“SOX”). As a percentage of sales, selling, general and administrative expenses increased during the three months ended September 29, 2007 to 25.5% compared to 23.1% for the three months ended September 30, 2006, mainly due to the decrease in volume.
Interest expense, net
Interest expense, net, was $2.8 million in the three months ended September 29, 2007, a decrease of $5.0 million from $7.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2006. Interest expense, net includes non-recurring charges totaling $4.3 million in the three months ended September 30, 2006 related to the write-off of unamortized debt issuance costs as a result of debt pre-payments and in connection with our debt refinancing on February 14, 2006, as described under the Liquidity and Capital Resources section of this report. The decrease was also due to a lower average debt level for the three months ended September 29, 2007 as compared to the three months ended September 30, 2006.
Other expenses (income), net
There were other expenses of $0.2 million for the three months ended September 29, 2007 compared to other expenses of $0.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2006. The amounts in both periods relate to the effect of ineffective interest and aluminum hedges.
Income tax expense
Our effective tax rate was 34.6% for the three months ended September 29, 2007 compared to 39.0% for the three months ended September 30, 2006. The decrease in our effective tax rate was due to an increase in the amount of manufacturing deductions related to the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004 expected to be taken in 2007.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS FOR THE NINE MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 29, 2007 AND SEPTEMBER 30, 2006
Net sales
Net sales decreased for the nine months ended September 29, 2007, compared to the same period in 2006. Net sales for the nine months ended September 29, 2007 were $224.6 million, compared with net sales of $303.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2006, representing a decrease of 26.0%.

Net sales of WinGuard branded products was $153.1 million for the nine months ended September 29, 2007, a decrease of $44.2 million, or 22.4%, from $197.3 million in net sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2006. The decrease was mainly due to the decline in new housing. Demand for WinGuard branded products is driven by, among other things, increased enforcement of strict building codes mandating the use of impact-resistant products, increased consumer and homebuilder awareness of the advantages provided by impact-resistant windows and doors over “active” forms of hurricane protection, and our successful marketing efforts.
Net sales of Other Window and Door Products were $71.5 million for the nine months ended September 29, 2007, a decrease of $34.6 million, or 32.6%, from $106.1 million in net sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2006. The decrease was mainly due to the decline in new housing. New housing demand has traditionally impacted sales of our Other Window and Door Products more than our WinGuard Window and Door Products.
Gross margin
Gross margin was $76.8 million for the nine months ended September 29, 2007, a decrease of $45.3 million, or 37.0%, from $122.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2006. The decrease is mainly due to margin loss associated with lower sales volumes and the impact of higher costs of aluminum offset in part by a higher mix of our WinGuard branded products, which carry a higher margin than our Other Window and Door Products. Our WinGuard branded products increased as a percentage of our total net sales to 68.2% in the nine months ended September 29, 2007, compared to 65.0% in the nine months ended September 30, 2006. The gross margin percentage was 34.2% for the nine months ended September 29, 2007 compared to 40.2% for the nine months ended September 30, 2006.
Selling, general and administrative expenses
Selling, general and administrative expenses were $60.4 million for the nine months ended September 29, 2007, a decrease of $8.0 million, from $68.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2006. This decrease was mainly due to a $4.2 million decrease in commissions, incentive compensation and other personnel related costs and a $4.3 million decrease in distribution costs both as a result of lower volumes, a $1.5 million decrease in bad debt expense as the result of an improved aging profile of our accounts receivable, a $1.4 million decrease in the management fees paid to our majority shareholder upon completion of our IPO and a $0.5 million decrease in marketing costs primarily due to a lower level of advertising. These decreases were partially offset by a $0.9 million increase in stock compensation expense and a $0.8 million increase in public-company costs, primarily due to the costs incurred to attain compliance with SOX. The first nine months of 2007 also includes a $0.8 million impairment charge related to our Lexington, North Carolina facility. As a percentage of sales, selling, general and administrative expenses increased during the first nine months ended September 29, 2007 to 26.9% compared to 22.5% for the nine months ended September 30, 2006 mainly due to the decrease in volume.

Stock compensation expense
Stock compensation expense of $26.9 million was recorded in the nine months ended September 29, 2006, relating to payments to option holders in lieu of adjusting exercise prices in connection with the payment of a dividend to shareholders in February 2006.
Interest expense, net
Interest expense, net, was $8.7 million for the nine months ended September 29, 2007, a decrease of $16.7 million from $25.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2006. Interest expense includes non-recurring charges of $8.9 million in the first nine months of 2006 related to the write-off of unamortized debt issuance costs as a result of debt pre-payments in connection with our debt refinancing on February 14, 2006, as described under the Liquidity and Capital Resources section of this report. In addition, there was a lower average debt level for the nine months ended September 29, 2007 as compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2006.
Other expenses (income), net
There were other expenses of $0.4 million for the nine months ended September 29, 2007 compared to other income of $0.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2006. The amounts in both periods relate to the effect of ineffective interest and aluminum hedges.
Income tax expense
Our effective tax rate was 36.3% for the nine months ended September 29, 2007 compared to 40.2% for the nine months ended September 30, 2006. The decrease in our effective tax rate was due to an increase in the amount of manufacturing deductions related to the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004 expected to be taken in 2007.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
Our principal source of liquidity is cash flow generated by operations, supplemented by borrowings under our credit facilities. This cash generating capability provides us with financial flexibility in meeting operating and investing needs. In addition, we completed our IPO in June 2006 and used the net proceeds, together with cash on hand, to repay a portion of our long term debt. Our primary capital requirements are to fund working capital needs, meet required debt payments, including debt service payments on our credit facilities, and fund capital expenditures.
Consolidated Cash Flows
Operating activities. Cash flows provided by operating activities was $22.5 million for the nine months ended September 29, 2007, compared to cash flows provided by operating activities of $19.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2006. The improvement in cash provided from operating activities for the nine months ended September 29, 2007 is the result of the non-recurring charge of $26.9 million related to dividends paid in 2006 and a change in operating assets and liabilities. Days sales outstanding improved to 37 at the end of the third quarter of 2007 from 46 as of December 30, 2006.
Investing activities. Cash flows used in investing activities was $7.8 million for the nine months ended September 29, 2007, compared to $24.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2006. The decrease in cash flows used in investing activities was mainly due to the completion of our manufacturing facility in Salisbury, North Carolina in 2006.
Financing activities. Cash flows used in financing activities was $32.1 million for the nine months ended September 29, 2007, compared to cash flows provided by financing activities of $30.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2006. Significant financing transactions during 2007 and 2006 included the following:
    In February 2006, we entered into a second amended and restated senior secured credit facility and a second lien term loan, and received $320.0 million proceeds. The proceeds were used to refinance our Company’s existing debt facility, pay a cash dividend to stockholders of $83.5 million, make a cash compensatory payment of approximately $26.9 million (including applicable payroll taxes of $0.5 million) to stock option holders in lieu of adjusting exercise prices in connection with such dividend, and pay certain financing costs related to the amendment.
 
    In February 2007, we prepaid $20.0 million of our long-term debt with cash generated from operations.
 
    In June 2007, we prepaid an additional $5.0 million of our long-term debt with cash generated from operations.

    In July 2007, we prepaid an additional $4.5 million of our long-term debt with cash generated from operations.
 
    In September 2007, we prepaid an additional $6.0 million of our long-term debt with cash generated from operations.
Capital Resources. On February 14, 2006, our Company entered into a second amended and restated $235 million senior secured credit facility and a $115 million second lien term loan due August 14, 2012, with a syndicate of banks. The senior secured credit facility is composed of a $30 million revolving credit facility and, initially, a $205 million first lien term loan.
The first lien term loan bears interest, at our option, at a rate equal to an adjusted LIBOR rate plus 3.0% per annum or a base rate plus 2.0% per annum. The loans under the revolving credit facility bear interest initially, at our option (provided, that all swingline loans shall be base rate loans), at a rate equal to an adjusted LIBOR rate plus 2.75% per annum or a base rate plus 1.75% per annum, and the margins above LIBOR and base rate may decline to 2.00% for LIBOR loans and 1.00% for base rate loans if certain leverage ratios are met. A commitment fee equal to 0.50% per annum accrues on the average daily unused amount of the commitment of each lender under the revolving credit facility and such fee is payable quarterly in arrears. We are also required to pay certain other fees with respect to the senior secured credit facility including (i) letter of credit fees on the aggregate undrawn amount of outstanding letters of credit plus the aggregate principal amount of all letter of credit reimbursement obligations, (ii) a fronting fee to the letter of credit issuing bank and (iii) administrative fees.
The first lien term loan is secured by a perfected first priority pledge of all of the equity interests of our subsidiary and perfected first priority security interests in and mortgages on substantially all of our tangible and intangible assets and those of the guarantors, except, in the case of the stock of a foreign subsidiary, to the extent such pledge would be prohibited by applicable law or would result in materially adverse tax consequences, and subject to such other exceptions as are agreed. The senior secured credit facility contains a number of covenants that, among other things, restrict our ability and the ability of our subsidiaries to (i) dispose of assets; (ii) change our business; (iii) engage in mergers or consolidations; (iv) make certain acquisitions; (v) pay dividends or repurchase or redeem stock; (vi) incur indebtedness or guarantee obligations and issue preferred and other disqualified stock; (vii) make investments and loans; (viii) incur liens; (ix) engage in certain transactions with affiliates; (x) enter into sale and leaseback transactions; (xi) issue stock or stock options of our subsidiary; (xii) amend or prepay subordinated indebtedness and loans under the second lien secured credit facility; (xiii) modify or waive material documents; or (xiv) change our fiscal year. In addition, under the first lien secured credit facility, we are required to comply with specified financial ratios and tests, including a minimum interest coverage ratio, a maximum leverage ratio, and maximum capital expenditures.
Borrowings under the new senior secured credit facility and second lien secured credit facility on February 14, 2006, were used to refinance our Company’s existing debt facility, pay a cash dividend to stockholders of $83.5 million, and make a cash compensatory payment of approximately $26.9 million (including applicable payroll taxes of $0.5 million) to stock option holders in lieu of adjusting exercise prices in connection with such dividend. In connection with the refinancing, our Company incurred fees and expenses aggregating $4.5 million that are included as a component of other assets, net and are being amortized over the terms of the new senior secured credit facilities. In 2006, the total cash payment to option holders and unamortized deferred financing costs of $4.6 million related to the prior credit facility were expensed and recorded as stock compensation expense and a component of interest expense, respectively.
Based on our ability to generate cash flows from operations and our borrowing capacity under the revolver under the senior secured credit facility, we believe we will have sufficient capital to meet our short-term and long-term needs, including our capital expenditures and our debt obligations in 2007.
Capital Expenditures. Capital expenditures vary depending on prevailing business factors, including current and anticipated market conditions. For the nine months ended September 29, 2007, capital expenditures were $7.9 million, compared to $24.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2006. We anticipate that cash flows from operations and liquidity from the revolving credit facility will be sufficient to execute our business plans.
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
We do not maintain any off-balance sheet arrangements.
Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
Our consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with GAAP. Critical accounting policies are those that are both important to the accurate portrayal of a company’s financial condition and results and require subjective or complex judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain. We make estimates and assumptions

20


Table of Contents

that affect the amounts reported in our financial statements and accompanying notes. Certain estimates are particularly sensitive due to their significance to the financial statements and the possibility that future events may be significantly different from our expectations. Management has discussed the development and disclosure of critical accounting policies and estimates with the Audit Committee of our Board of Directors.
We have identified the following accounting policies that require us to make the most subjective or complex judgments in order to fairly present our consolidated financial position and results of operations.
Revenue recognition
We recognize sales when all of the following criteria have been met: a valid customer order with a fixed price has been received; the product has been delivered and accepted by the customer; and collectibility is reasonably assured. All sales recognized are net of allowances for discounts and estimated returns, which are estimated using historical experience.
Allowance for doubtful accounts and related reserves
We extend credit to dealers and distributors, generally on a non-collateralized basis. Accounts receivable are recorded at their gross receivable amount, reduced by an allowance for doubtful accounts that results in the receivables being recorded at estimated net realizable value. The allowance for doubtful accounts is based on management’s assessment of the amount which may become uncollectible in the future and is determined based on our write-off history, aging of receivables, specific identification of uncollectible accounts, and consideration of prevailing economic and industry conditions. Uncollectible accounts are charged off after repeated attempts to collect from the customer have been unsuccessful. The difference between actual write-offs and estimated reserves has not been material.
Long-lived assets
We review long-lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of such assets may not be recoverable. Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of long-lived assets to future undiscounted net cash flows expected to be generated, based on management estimates, in accordance with Statements of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 144, Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets. Estimates made by management are subject to change and include such things as future growth assumptions, operating and capital expenditure requirements, asset useful lives and other factors, changes in which could materially impact the results of the impairment test. If such assets are considered impaired, the impairment recognized is the amount by which the carrying amount of the assets exceeds the fair value of the assets. Assets disposed of are reported at the lower of the carrying amount or fair value less cost to sell, and depreciation is no longer recorded.
Goodwill and Other Intangibles
The impairment evaluation for goodwill is conducted at the end of each fiscal year, or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that an asset might be impaired. The evaluation is performed using a two-step process. In the first step, which is used to screen for potential impairment, the fair value of the reporting unit is compared with the carrying amount of the reporting unit, including goodwill. The estimated fair value of the reporting unit is determined using the discounted future cash flows method, based on management estimates. If the estimated fair value of the reporting unit is less than the carrying amount of the reporting unit, then a second step, which determines the amount of the goodwill impairment to be recorded, must be completed. In the second step, the implied fair value of the reporting unit’s goodwill is determined by allocating the reporting unit’s fair value to all of its assets and liabilities other than goodwill (including any unrecognized intangible assets). The resulting implied fair value of the goodwill that results from the application of this second step is then compared to the carrying amount of the goodwill and an impairment charge is recorded for the difference. Estimation of fair value is dependent on a number of factors, including, but not limited to, interest rates, future growth assumptions, operations and capital expenditure requirements and other factors which are subject to change and could materially impact the results of the impairment tests. Unless our actual results differ significantly from those in our estimation of fair value, it would not result in an impairment of goodwill.
The impairment evaluation of the carrying amount of intangible assets with indefinite lives is also conducted annually, or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that an asset might be impaired. The evaluation is performed by comparing the carrying amount of these assets to their estimated fair value. If the estimated fair value is less than the carrying amount of the intangible assets with indefinite lives, then an impairment charge is recorded to reduce the asset to its estimated fair value. The estimated fair value is generally determined on the basis of discounted future cash flows. The assumptions used in the estimate of fair

21


Table of Contents

value are generally consistent with past performance and are also consistent with the projections and assumptions that are used in current Company operating plans. Such assumptions are subject to change as a result of changing economic and competitive conditions.
Warranties
We have warranty obligations with respect to most of our manufactured products. Obligations vary by product components. The reserve for warranties is based on our assessment of the costs that will have to be incurred to satisfy warranty obligations on recorded net sales. The reserve is determined after assessing our warranty history and estimating our future warranty obligations.
Derivative instruments
We account for derivative instruments in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 133, Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities , as amended (“SFAS No. 133”). SFAS No. 133 requires us to recognize all of our derivative instruments as either assets or liabilities in the consolidated balance sheet at fair value. The accounting for changes in the fair value (i.e., gains or losses) of a derivative instrument depends on whether it has been designated and qualifies as part of a hedging relationship and further, on the type of hedging relationship. For those derivative instruments that are designated and qualify as hedging instruments, we must designate the hedging instrument, based upon the exposure being hedged, as a fair value hedge, a cash flow hedge or a hedge of a net investment in a foreign operation.
All derivative instruments currently utilized by us are designated and accounted for as cash flow hedges (i.e., hedging the exposure to variability in expected future cash flows that is attributable to a particular risk). SFAS No. 133 provides that the effective portion of the gain or loss on a derivative instrument designated and qualifying as a cash flow hedging instrument be reported as a component of other comprehensive income and be reclassified into earnings in the same period or periods during which the transaction affects earnings. The remaining gain or loss on the derivative instrument, if any, must be recognized currently in earnings.
Stock compensation
We account for stock-based compensation in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 123(R), Share-Based Payment (SFAS No. 123(R)). This statement is a fair-value based approach for measuring stock-based compensation and requires us to recognize the cost of employee and non-employee directors’ services received in exchange for our Company’s equity instruments. Under SFAS No. 123(R), we are required to record compensation expense over an award’s vesting period based on the award’s fair value at the date of grant. We have adopted SFAS No. 123(R) on a prospective basis; accordingly, our financial statements for periods prior to January 1, 2006, do not include compensation cost calculated under the fair value method. We recorded compensation expense for stock based awards of $0.4 million and $0.3 million during the third quarters of 2007 and 2006, respectively. For the nine months ended September 29, 2007 and September 30, 2006, we recorded expense for stock based awards of $1.2 million and $0.3 million, respectively. As of September 29, 2007, there was $0.8 million and $1.0 million of total unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested stock option agreements and non-vested restricted share awards, respectively. These costs are expected to be recognized in earnings on a straight line basis over the weighted average remaining vesting period of 2.4 years.
Stock options granted prior to our Company’s initial public offering were valued using the minimum value method in the pro forma disclosures required by SFAS No. 123. The minimum value method excludes volatility in the calculation of fair value of stock based compensation. In accordance with SFAS No. 123(R), options that were valued using the minimum value method, for purposes of pro forma disclosure under SFAS No. 123, were transitioned to SFAS No. 123(R) using the prospective method. As a result, these options will continue to be accounted for under the same accounting principles (recognition and measurement) originally applied to those awards in the income statement, which for our Company was APB No. 25. Accordingly, the adoption of SFAS No. 123(R) does not result in any compensation cost being recognized for these options. Additionally, pro forma information previously required under SFAS No. 123 and SFAS No. 148 will no longer be presented for these options.
Income Taxes
The Company or its subsidiary files income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction and various states. With few exceptions, the Company is no longer subject to U.S. federal examinations by tax authorities for years before 2003 and state and local income tax examinations by tax authorities for years before 2003 in states where the Company or a subsidiary has a material tax presence.

The Company adopted the provisions of FASB Interpretation No. 48 (FIN 48), Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes, an interpretation of FASB Statement No. 109, Accounting for Income Taxes , on January 1, 2007. We did not recognize any material liability for unrecognized tax benefits in conjunction with our FIN 48 implementation. However, should we accrue for such liabilities when and if they arise in the future, we will recognize interest and penalties associated with uncertain tax positions as part of our income tax provision.
ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK
We experience changes in interest expense when market interest rates change. Changes in our debt could also increase these risks. Based on debt outstanding at September 29, 2007, a 25 basis point increase in interest rates would result in approximately $0.3 million of additional interest costs annually, net of the impact of interest rate hedges.
We utilize derivative financial instruments to hedge price movements in our aluminum materials. As of September 29, 2007, we covered approximately 41% of our anticipated needs through August 2008. Short-term changes in the cost of aluminum, which can be significant, are sometimes passed on to our customers through price increases, however, there can be no guarantee that we will be able to continue to pass on such price increases to our customers or that price increases will not negatively impact sales volume, thereby adversely impacting operating margins. For the nine months ended September 29, 2007, a 10% increase in the cost of aluminum would increase cost of sales by $2.0 million, net of the change in the fair value of aluminum hedges.
ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
Disclosure Controls and Procedures. Disclosure controls and procedures are controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the Company’s reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms.
A control system, however, no matter how well conceived and operated, can at best provide reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Additionally, a control system reflects the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of error or fraud, if any, within our Company have been detected, and due to these inherent limitations, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.
Our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, with the assistance of management, evaluated the design, operation and effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this report (the “Evaluation Date”). Based on that evaluation, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer concluded that, as of the Evaluation Date, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective for the purposes of ensuring that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting. During the period covered by this report, there have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with the evaluation described above that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

We are involved in various claims and lawsuits incidental to the conduct of our business in the ordinary course. We carry insurance coverage in such amounts in excess of our self-insured retention as we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances and that may or may not cover any or all of our liabilities in respect to claims and lawsuits. We do not believe that the ultimate resolution of these matters will have a material adverse impact on our results of operations, financial position or cash flows.
Although our business and facilities are subject to federal, state and local environmental regulation, environmental regulation does not have a material impact on our operations. We believe that our facilities are in material compliance with such laws and regulations. As

owners and lessees of real property, we can be held liable for the investigation or remediation of contamination on such properties, in some circumstances without regard to whether we knew of or were responsible for such contamination. Our current expenditures with respect to environmental investigation and remediation at our facilities are minimal, although no assurance can be provided that more significant remediation may not be required in the future as a result of spills or releases of petroleum products or hazardous substances or the discovery of previously unknown environmental conditions.
ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS
In addition to the other information set forth in this report, you should carefully consider the factors discussed in Part 1, “Item 1A. Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 30, 2006, which could materially affect our business, financial condition or future results. The risks described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K are not the only risks facing our Company. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deem to be immaterial also may materially adversely affect our business, financial condition and/or operating results.
