Check the appropriate box below if the Form 8-K filing is intended to simultaneously satisfy the filing obligation of the registrant under any of the following provisions (see General Instruction A.2. below):
Molecular Insight Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the Company) previously reported that it entered into a Limited Waiver Agreement with holders of at least a majority of the Companys outstanding Senior Secured Floating Rate Bonds due 2012 (the Bonds) and the Bond Indenture trustee and eight extensions thereto, under which the holders of the Bonds and Bond Indenture trustee have agreed to waive the default arising from the inclusion of a going concern explanatory paragraph in the independent auditors report, any default arising from the Companys failure to comply with the minimum liquidity requirements set forth in the Bond Indenture, and other technical defaults under the Bond Indenture until 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time on September 8, 2010.
On September 8, 2010, the Company received a ninth extension of the waiver pursuant to which the holders of the Bonds and Bond Indenture trustee have agreed to continue waiving the aforementioned defaults until 12:00 PM Eastern Standard Time on September 17, 2010, subject to earlier termination upon certain circumstances. During this waiver extension period, the Company will continue discussing with its Bond holders various proposals which generally contemplate, among other things, a deleveraging of the Company through a debt for equity exchange. There are no assurances, however, that such discussions will be successful. A copy of the press release issued by the Company on September 9, 2010 announcing the receipt of the ninth extension is furnished with this report as Exhibit 99.1 to this Form 8-K.
The waiver continues to be subject to a number of terms and conditions relating to the Companys provision of certain information to the Bond holders, among other conditions and matters. In the event that the waiver extension expires or terminates prior to the successful conclusion of the Companys negotiations with Bond holders regarding the restructuring of the outstanding debt, then the Company will be in default of its obligations under the Bond Indenture and the Bond holders may choose to accelerate the debt obligations under the Bond Indenture and demand immediate repayment in full and seek to foreclose on the collateral supporting such obligations. If the Companys debt obligations are accelerated or are not restructured on acceptable terms, it is likely the Company will be unable to repay such obligations and may seek protection under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code or similar relief.
Exhibits 99.1 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 under that Section and shall not be deemed to be incorporated by reference into any filing of the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this Report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, hereunto duly authorized, on the 9th day of September, 2010.
