Fiscal Year 2021 Outlook

The dynamic and volatile nature of the COVID-19 global pandemic has continued to cause uncertainty in many of our markets. While the ongoing rollout of vaccines across the globe has begun, new viral variants and regional resurgences make forecasting the future of our business challenging in the near-term. Given this uncertainty, and the protracted nature of this crisis, we will continue to withhold financial guidance, although we are encouraged that ongoing stabilization will lead to recovery across the globe.
