Digital detector developer Schick Technologies of Long Island City, NY, announced last month that it would be late in filing its 10-K report with the Securities and Exchange Commission and will request an extension. Schick expects to post a significant net loss for the quarter ended March 31, 1999, which the company ascribed to increased product returns, doubtful accounts, and inventory obsolescence.

Schick’s financial struggles began earlier this year, when the company took a one-time charge against earnings for its 1998 third quarter (end-December). The charge was for $5 million in accounts receivable debt. The company attributed the charge to a number of accounts on which it was unable to collect (SCAN 1/13/99). The firm is also embroiled in several class-action complaints, filed in January by its shareholders, which claim that Schick knowingly misstated its financial condition before announcing the one-time charge (SCAN 1/20/99).
