Under the terms of the plan, the holders of the company's 7½ percent Senior Convertible Notes, due April 2003, agreed to convert the debt to equity. The Note holders and other holders of certain unsecured claims will receive a pro rata share of 95% of replacement common shares to be issued pursuant to the Plan. On Oct.25, 2002 the conversion took place and all outstanding notes have been cancelled. The transaction was implemented as a voluntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy for the purpose of enabling the company to retain unimpaired utilization of a net operating loss carryforward of over $125 million.
