Pursuant to the Plan, claims against the Debtors in pre-petition litigation have been discharged, and the holders of such claims may be entitled to receive new common stock and Warrants as part of the distribution to unsecured creditors. The pre-petition litigation, which constitutes a portion of the disputed claims under the Plan, includes certain of the matters disclosed in the Companys previously-filed periodic reports involving the following: (i) alleged personal injury and/or property damage from the release of hazardous materials used in the battery manufacturing process; and (ii) claims of racial discrimination. The amount of distributions to holders of all such claims will be determined through the Plans claims reconciliation process. For a further discussion of the claims reconciliation process, see Note 29.
