Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.
Safe Harbor Statement:
This 8-K and the exhibit incorporated herein by reference may contain or contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 with respect to the Companys financial condition, results of operations and business that is not historical information. As a general matter, forward-looking statements are those focused upon future or anticipated events or trends and expectations and beliefs relating to matters that are not historical in nature. The words believe, expect, plan, intend, estimate, or anticipate and similar expressions, as well as future or conditional verbs such as will, should, would, and could, often identify forward-looking statements. The Company believes there is a reasonable basis for its expectations and beliefs, but they are inherently uncertain, and the Company may not realize its expectations and its beliefs may not prove correct. These forward-looking statements are subject to various risks and uncertainties, including without limitation (i) the Companys ability to manage its business as a debtor-in-possession pursuant to the provisions of the Bankruptcy Code and liquidate all of its remaining assets for distribution to creditors, (ii) the potential adverse impact of the Bankruptcy Case on the Companys liquidity or results of operations and (iii) risks associated with third parties seeking and obtaining bankruptcy court approval to convert the Bankruptcy Case to a chapter 7 case.
Except as required by law, the Company assumes no obligation to update these forward-looking statements to reflect actual results, changes in risks, uncertainties or assumptions underlying or affecting such statements, or for prospective events that may have a retroactive effect.
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 hereunto duly authorized.
