Medical Resources has closed the book on Chapter 11-and slammed the door on many of its shareholders. As part of the financial restructuring, holders of $75 million in senior notes will receive approximately 84% of its common stock, with the remaining equity distributed to other creditors and plaintiffs in lawsuits. Pre–Chapter 11 shareholders will receive no distributions, and their shares of common stock will be canceled. With fewer than 300 record holders of its common stock, the company is no longer subject to the reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Medical Resources, which owns 70 imaging centers, marked completion of the restructuring by acquiring new MRI and CT scanners for its Springfield (PA) Diagnostic Imaging Center and Sarasota (FL) Outpatient affiliates.
