On August 31, 2009, Nortel Networks Inc., a Delaware corporation and an indirect subsidiary of the Registrant, and several other direct and indirect U.S. subsidiaries of the Registrant (collectively the U.S. Debtors), filed their unaudited condensed combined debtors-in-possession financial statements included in the Monthly Operating Report for the period from July 1, 2009 to August 1, 2009 with the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (U.S. Bankruptcy Court) (In re Nortel Networks Inc., et al, Chapter 11, Case No.09-10138). A copy of the Monthly Operating Report is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this report and is incorporated herein by reference into this Item 8.01.
The Monthly Operating Report is limited in scope, covers a limited time period, and has been prepared solely for the purpose of the U.S. Debtors compliance with the monthly reporting requirements of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court. The financial information in the Monthly Operating Report is unaudited, was not audited or reviewed by independent accountants, and has not been subject to all procedures that would typically be applied to financial information presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP), and therefore may exclude items required by GAAP, such as certain reclassifications, eliminations, accruals, and disclosure items. The Registrant cautions readers not to place undue reliance upon the Monthly Operating Report. There can be no assurance that such information is complete. The Monthly Operating Report may be subject to future adjustment and reconciliation. The Monthly Operating Report is in a format required by the U.S. Bankruptcy Code and should not be used for investment purposes. The information in the Monthly Operating Report should not be viewed as indicative of future results.
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.
