Monarch Dental Corporation announced that it has terminated discussions with third parties concerning the issuance of debt securities in a subordinated debt transaction. Under the terms of the Company's existing credit facility and short-term loan, Monarch Dental was required to raise a minimum of $15 million of subordinated debt by February 15, 2001. As a result of this and a financial covenant default, Monarch Dental is currently in default under its loan agreement. Monarch Dental is engaged in discussions with its lenders concerning these defaults and is in the process of attempting to renegotiate the terms of its loan agreement. No assurances can be given that the Company will be successful in these negotiations. These uncertainties and risks include the risk that Monarch Dental will not be able to renegotiate its loan agreement on acceptable terms or maintain sufficient liquidity to fund operations.
