Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure
On November 16, 2009, Meruelo Maddux – 845 S. Flower Street, LLC and Meruelo Chinatown, LLC (collectively, the “Debtors”), which are both subsidiaries of Meruelo Maddux Properties, Inc. (the “Company”) filed their unaudited condensed debtors-in-possession financial statements included in the Monthly Operating Report for the one month ended October 31, 2009 (the “Monthly Operating Report”) with the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California, San Fernando Valley Division (the “Court”) (In re Meruelo Maddux – 845 S. Flower Street, LLC and Meruelo Chinatown, LLC; Case Numbers 1:09-bk-21621-KT and 1:09-bk-21622-KT respectively.) and simultaneously furnished copies of such reports as Exhibit 99.1 and 99.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
The Monthly Operating Report is limited in scope, covers a limited time period, and has been prepared solely for the purpose of complying with the monthly reporting requirements of the Bankruptcy Court. Meruelo Maddux Properties, Inc. and 53 of its direct and indirect subsidiaries and affiliates filed voluntary petitions for relief on March 26 and 27, 2009. These entities file separate Monthly Operating Reports with the Bankruptcy Court. Others of the Company’s subsidiaries have not filed for bankruptcy protection, and financial information regarding such subsidiaries is not part of the Monthly Operating Report. The financial information in the Monthly Operating Report is preliminary and unaudited and does not purport to show the financial statements of any of the Debtors 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 Company 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 revision. In addition, 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.
Limitation on Incorporation by Reference
The Monthly Operating Report is being furnished for informational purposes only and is not deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Registration statements or other documents filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission shall not incorporate the Monthly Operating Report or any other information set forth in this Current Report on Form 8-K by reference, except as otherwise expressly stated in such filing. This Current Report on Form 8-K will not be deemed an admission as to the materiality of any information in the report that is required to be disclosed solely by Regulation FD.
