Possession of the pricelist does not constitute an offer to sell but is an invitation to place an order.

The Company may accept the offer by notice in writing to the Buyer or by supply of the goods set out in the Order placed by the Buyer.
All prices in the price list are subject to change without notice. All offers accepted will be supplied at the price current at the date of shipment to the Buyer, including items on back-order.
