Amiga Report - COMMODORE AT RISK OF FINANCIAL COLLAPSE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Commodore International Ltd, has announced that they are currently having
financial difficulties which may result in bankruptcy or other 
liquidation procedures unless sufficient additional funding is found.

The Wall Street Journal reports (3-28-94) that for the second quarter
Commodore has lost $8.2 million, or 25 cents a share. Revenue fell to
$70.1 million from 237.7 million. Commodore stock fell 12.5 cents
to $3.00 in NYSE trading. Stocks closed thursday at .75 per share.

Associated Press reports that, "The company's net worth turned negative
during the fiscal year that ended last June 30 and it has since had two
more quarters of losses."

Suppliers have limited credit to Commodore and some have filed suit. 
Commodore is now trying to negotiate a restructuring plan with creditors,
including those that have sued the company. There has been no reports as 
to the nature of the suits.

The New York Stock Exchange has halted trading of Commodore stock, and
stock will remain halted while NYSE reviews Commodore's eligibility
for continued listing. Hock Tan of Commodore told Reuters that he didn't 
know when CBM would be able to resume trading.

AR wasn't able to reach anyone at Commodore today for questions.
