Item 1.03 Bankruptcy or Receivership
On November 6, 2008, MPC Corporation (the "Company") filed a voluntary petition for relief under chapter 11 of title 11 of the United States Code (the "Bankruptcy Code") in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the "Court") (Case Number 08-12673). Each of the Companys direct and indirect subsidiaries also filed for bankruptcy protection under chapter 11 of title 11 of the Bankruptcy Code in the Court. Subject to Court approval, the Company and its direct and indirect subsidiaries will continue to operate as a "debtor-in-possession" under the jurisdiction of the Court and in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code and the orders of the Court.
We do not anticipate that there will be any distribution to the Companys equity holders in conjunction with any of the bankruptcy cases.
As previously disclosed in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed on October 27, 2008, we received notice from NYSE Alternext US LLC (the Exchange), that it intended to strike the Common Stock and Warrants of MPC Corporation from the Exchange by filing a delisting application with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Section 1009(d) of the Exchange Company Guide.
On November 4, 2008, MPC Corporations Common Stock and Warrants were delisted from the Exchange. Trading of our Common Stock is now available on the Over the Counter market commonly known as the Pink Sheets under the symbol of MPCC.PK. As indicated in Item 1.03, we do not anticipate that there will be any distribution to the Companys equity holders in conjunction with the bankruptcy cases.
On November 7, 2008, we issued a press release with respect to the filing of voluntary bankruptcy petitions by MPC Corporation and its direct and indirect subsidiaries.. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1.
