Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.
As previously disclosed, on September 23, 2010, Blockbuster Inc. (the Company) and certain of its domestic subsidiaries (collectively, the Debtors) filed voluntary petitions for relief (the Bankruptcy Filing) under chapter 11 of title 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York (the Bankruptcy Court) case number 10-14997.
Consistent with the requirements of the Amended and Restated Asset Purchase Agreement entered into by and among the Company, the Debtor subsidiaries thereto and DISH Network Corporation on April 20, 2011 (the Purchase Agreement) and the Bankruptcy Courts Supplemental Order dated April 26, 2011 approving the Purchase Agreement, the Company filed with the Bankruptcy Court a Notice of Change of Case Caption (the Notice) on August 23, 2011. Pursuant to the Notice, the Company and each of the Debtors confirmed that it had changed its name by amending its Certificate of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of the state of its incorporation. Consistent therewith, the Company is now known as BB Liquidating Inc. and all Debtors are known by the names shown on Exhibit A to the Notice.
On September 1, 2011, the Debtors filed their monthly operating report for the period from July 1, 2011 through July 31, 2011 (the Monthly Operating Report) with the Bankruptcy Court. The Monthly Operating Report is attached as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. This current report (including the exhibit hereto) will not be deemed an admission as to the materiality of any information required to be disclosed solely by Regulation FD.
Limitation on Incorporation by Reference
In accordance with General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K, the information in this Item 7.01 shall not be deemed filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall such information be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
Cautionary Statement Regarding Financial Operating Data
The Company cautions investors and potential investors not to place undue reliance upon the information contained in the Monthly Operating Report, which was not prepared for the purpose of providing the basis for an investment decision relating to any of the securities of the Company. The Monthly Operating Report is limited in scope, covers a limited time period, is limited to the Debtors domestic operations, and has been prepared solely for the purpose of complying with the monthly reporting requirements of the Bankruptcy Court. The Monthly Operating Report was not audited or reviewed by independent accountants, was not prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States, is in a format prescribed by applicable bankruptcy laws, and is subject to future adjustment and reconciliation. There can be no assurance that, from the perspective of an investor or potential investor in the Companys securities, the Monthly Operating Report is complete. The Monthly Operating Report also contains information for periods which are shorter or otherwise different from those required in the Companys reports pursuant to the Exchange Act, and such information might not be indicative of the Companys financial condition or operating results for the period that would be reflected in the Companys financial statements or in its reports pursuant to the Exchange Act. Results set forth in the Monthly Operating Report should not be viewed as indicative of future results.
Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
The information contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All statements (other than statements of historical facts) that address projected or estimated results, or events,
developments or results that we intend, expect, believe, anticipate, plan, forecast or project, will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements. The words possible, propose, might, could, would, projects, plan, forecasts, anticipates, expect, intend, believe, seek or may, and similar expressions, are intended to identify forward-looking statements, but are not the exclusive means of identifying them. Forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks, contingencies and uncertainties, some of which our management has not yet identified. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance; subsequent developments may cause forward-looking statements to become outdated; and actual results, developments and business decisions may differ materially from those contemplated by such forward-looking statements as a result of various factors. Important factors that should be considered as potentially causing actual results to differ from those contemplated by forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to (i) the fact that we are currently not conducting business operations and will have no operations in the future; (ii) we are currently winding up the Companys business and distributing the proceeds of the court-supervised sale of substantially all of our assets, after which we expect to file a plan of liquidation with the bankruptcy court; and (iii) even though our common stock continues to be quoted on the Pink Sheets, our common stock has no value and our stockholders should not view the trading activity of our common stock on the Pink Sheets or any other market or trading platform as being indicative of the value our stockholders will receive as a part of the chapter 11 cases. The cautionary statements provided above are being made pursuant to the provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (the Act) and with the intention of obtaining the benefits of the safe harbor provisions of the Act for any such forward-looking information. Additional risks that may affect the Companys future performance are detailed in the Companys filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or circumstances, or otherwise.
