Item 8.01. Other Events.
As previously disclosed, on April 15, 2009, Noble International, Ltd. (the Company) and 14 of its domestic subsidiaries (collectively, the debtors) filed voluntary petitions in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Michigan (the Bankruptcy Court) seeking relief under chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code. On June 17, 2009 the debtors filed their monthly operating report for the period ended May 31, 2009 with the Bankruptcy Court. The May monthly operating reports are collectively furnished with this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1. Copies of bank statements have been omitted from Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report due to the volume of the statements. Copies of these statements can be obtained from the debtors monthly operating reports filed with the Bankruptcy Court, case number 09-51720.
The monthly operating reports contain unaudited financial information which has not been reviewed by independent accountants, is limited to the debtors and is in a format prescribed by applicable bankruptcy laws. The financial information related to the debtors included in the monthly operating reports has been prepared to conform with specific instructions from the U.S. Trustee and is not presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) or SEC regulations applicable to financial statements contained in periodic reports filed with the SEC. Preparation of the debtors financial statements in accordance with GAAP could result in material reconciliations and adjustments to certain financial information presented in the monthly operating reports.
The monthly operating reports also contain information for periods that are different from those contained in the reports the Company files pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act). Such information also may not be indicative of the financial condition or operating results of the Company and its subsidiaries for the periods reflected in the Companys financial statements or in its reports pursuant to the Exchange Act, or of future results. As a result, the financial information in the monthly operating reports is not presented on a consolidated basis and does not present the consolidated results of the Company, [except with respect to total shareholders equity, as described below]. Accordingly, the financial statements in the monthly operating reports cannot be compared with the consolidated financial condition and results of operations that the Company reports in its Exchange Act filings.
While every effort has been made to assure the accuracy and completeness of the monthly operating reports, errors or omissions may have inadvertently occurred and the Company reserves the right to amend the monthly operating reports as necessary.
Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
