Modified SEC Reporting
As previously disclosed, Canal Corporation and its U.S. operating subsidiaries filed voluntary petitions in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Virginia in Richmond (the Bankruptcy Court) on December 29, 2008, seeking relief under the provisions of Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code. During the pendency of the bankruptcy proceedings, Canal Corporation has adopted a modified reporting program with respect to its reporting obligations under the federal securities laws. In lieu of filing annual reports on Form 10-K and quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, Canal Corporation will file current reports on Form 8-K to disclose material financial information, including copies of Canal Corporations monthly operating reports required to be submitted to the Bankruptcy Court and material events relating to the bankruptcy proceedings. Canal Corporation believes that it meets the conditions for modified reporting set forth in Exchange Act Release No. 9660 (the Release), dated June 30, 1972, and that its modified reporting program is consistent with the protection of its investors as set forth in the Release.
Monthly Operating Reports
On November 29, 2010, Canal Corporation filed with the Bankruptcy Court its unaudited monthly operating reports for the period October 4, 2010 to November 7, 2010 (the Monthly Reports). Copies of the Monthly Reports are attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and are incorporated herein by reference.
Canal Corporation cautions readers not to place undue reliance upon the information contained in the Monthly Reports. Information in the Monthly Reports reflects only information related to Canal Corporation and its U.S. debtor operating subsidiaries and does not include information for the entire consolidated group. The Monthly Reports contain financial statements and other financial information that have not been audited or reviewed by independent accountants and may be subject to further review and potential adjustments. The Monthly Reports are in a format prescribed by applicable bankruptcy laws, were prepared solely for the purpose of complying with the monthly reporting requirements in Canal Corporations bankruptcy proceedings and contain information for periods that are shorter or different from those contained in periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The information set forth in the Monthly Reports should not be viewed as representative of Canal Corporations expected operating results for future periods.
The Monthly Reports are, and any future such monthly operating reports will be, furnished for informational purposes only and shall not be deemed filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor will such information be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Exchange Act or the Securities Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
