Accuride warns of bankruptcy, reports loss

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Evansville-based truck parts maker Accuride Corp., one of the state's largest companies, warned today in its quarterly financial report that the company might seek bankruptcy protection if lenders refuse to restructure its debt.

As of June 30, Accuride had $47.6 million in cash and $580.8 million in net debt. On July 8, the company received a temporary reprieve until Aug. 15 from lenders on $11.7 million in interest due Aug. 3.

In exchange, Accuride agreed to maintain minimum liquidity of $30 million - an amount the company has fallen below previously. In November, Accuride stock was suspended from trading on the New York Stock Exchange because its market capitalization fell below the minimum average of $25 million.

If the company is unable to extend the reprieve, receive a permanent waiver or restructure its debt before the Aug. 15 deadline, Accuride likely would default on the loan, it said in a prepared statement.

"In that event, we would not have sufficient liquidity available to repay such indebtedness and, unless the company were able to obtain additional capital resources, waivers or other accommodations, the company would be unable to continue to fund its operations or continue its business, thereby potentially requiring us to seek relief under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code," the company said.

Accuride reported a second-quarter loss of $36.1 million, or $1 per share, compared with profit of $3.4 million, or 10 cents per share, in the same period last year.

Revenue fell 45 percent over the year-ago quarter, to $135.2 million.

Accuride's financial troubles date to at least last year. In September, the directors accepted the resignation of its CEO as the company laid off 392 employees.

Accuride had 3,500 employees at the end of 2008, with about 400 in Indiana.

Company shares traded this morning at 58 cents each, up a penny.

  1. Yes sir keep cashing those 300K a year checks direct to IMS, while millions disappear from the teams like Rahal's. Guess there wasn't enough ka- ching going around to keep Sarah Fisher in business without their "merger". LOL._____.Meanwhile back in Realville the series with the "best racing in the world" drew what appeared to be about 5000 live spectators ( and probably 1500 of those Target "freebies", and was beaten in the ratings by a series that reportedly consists of "parades" and aired while most people are still sleeping. That will generate those big ka-chings for sure. :-). But, hey, as long as the Speedway gets the cash who gives a damn about the teams?

  3. If I could actually get the prices...I would do this on my own. We need laws that force provides to publish the costs they will charge. Everyone else gives you the price in advance...except hospitals.

  4. I was under the impression that fencing is not allowed on a front yard and that on a corner, both sides are considered "front" yards, therefore can't be fenced without a variance. Also impedes the visibility for drivers at the intersection. Am I understanding this correctly? Might be why a fence was not included in the plans and a request for a variance will have to be made?.

  5. I was a big fan of Cowards and Carrots, which I got a chance to see at the show. It's currently on Kickstarter, but the designer also put out What's He Building in There last year, which got a fair amount of buzz.
