The company has been operating on a net income and cash flow deficit and expects this to continue for the foreseeable future. Despite its efforts, the company has been unable to obtain a viable financing alternative and believes it will run out of cash to operate the business in October 2007. The company believes that if the merger is not consummated, the company may be forced to declare bankruptcy that will result in a decrease in the value of its common stock."
The ISS report concludes, stating, "Based on our review of the terms of the transaction and the factors described above, specifically the one-day market premium and the company's financial condition, we believe that the merger agreement warrants shareholder support."
