(the Company) and its affiliated debtor, MF Global Finance USA Inc., filed voluntary petitions for relief under chapter 11 of title 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code (the Bankruptcy Code) in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York (the Bankruptcy Court). On December 19, 2011, MF Global Capital LLC, MF Global FX Clear LLC, and MF Global Market Services LLC each filed a voluntary petition for relief under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code in the Bankruptcy Court. On March 2, 2012, MF Global Holdings USA Inc. filed a voluntary petition for relief under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code in the Bankruptcy Court. The chapter 11 cases for the Company, MF Global Finance USA Inc., MF Global Capital LLC, MF Global FX Clear LLC, MF Global Market Services LLC, and MF Global Holdings USA Inc. (collectively, the Debtors) have been assigned to the Honorable Judge Martin Glenn and are being jointly administered under the caption In re MF Global Holdings Ltd., et al. Case No. 11-15059 (MG).
On September 21, 2012, the Debtors filed their monthly operating report for the period from August 1, 2012 through August 31, 2012 (the Monthly Operating Report) with the Bankruptcy Court and with the United States Trustee. This Monthly Operating Report also includes monthly financial statements for each Debtor from each Debtors respective petition filing dates through August 2012 as well as amendments to certain previously disclosed information, as described in the Monthly Operating Report. The Monthly Operating Report is attached as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. This current report (including the exhibit hereto) will not be deemed an admission as to the materiality of any information required to be disclosed solely by Regulation FD.
Limitation on Incorporation by Reference
In accordance with General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K, the information in this Item 7.01 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 of that section, nor shall such information be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
Cautionary Statement Regarding Financial Operating Data
The Company cautions investors and potential investors not to place undue reliance upon the information contained in the Monthly Operating Report, which was not prepared for the purpose of providing the basis for an investment decision relating to any of the securities of the Company. The Monthly Operating Report is limited in scope, covers a limited time period, and has been prepared by the Debtors with the assistance of its advisors solely for the purpose of complying with the monthly reporting requirements of the Bankruptcy Court and the Bankruptcy Code. The Monthly Operating Report was not audited or reviewed by independent accountants, was not prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States, is in a format prescribed by applicable bankruptcy laws, and is subject to future adjustment and reconciliation. There can be no assurance that, from the perspective of an investor or potential investor in the Companys securities, the Monthly Operating Report is complete. The Monthly Operating Report also contains information for periods which are shorter or otherwise different from those required in the Companys reports pursuant to the Exchange Act, and such information might not be indicative of the Companys financial condition or operating results for the period that would be reflected in the Companys financial statements or in its reports pursuant to the Exchange Act. Results set forth in the Monthly Operating Report should not be viewed as indicative of future results.
Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This Current Report on Form 8-K and Exhibit 99.1 hereto may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 with respect to the Registrants financial condition, results of operations, and business that is not historical information. As a general matter, forward-looking statements are those focused upon future or anticipated events or trends and expectations and beliefs relating to matters that are not historical in nature. The words believe, expect, plan, intend, estimate, or anticipate and similar expressions, as well as future or conditional verbs such as will, should, would, and could, often identify forward-looking statements. The Registrant believes there is a reasonable basis for its expectations and beliefs, but
they are inherently uncertain, and the Registrant may not realize its expectations and its beliefs may not prove correct. The Registrant undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise. The Registrants actual results and future financial condition may differ materially from those described or implied by any such forward-looking statements as a result of many factors that may be outside the Registrants control. Such factors include, without limitation: (i) the ability of the Registrant to develop, prosecute, confirm, and consummate any plan of reorganization or liquidation with respect to the Chapter 11 Proceeding; (ii) the Registrants ability to obtain Court approval with respect to motions in the Chapter 11 Proceeding; and (iii) the potential adverse impact of the Chapter 11 Proceeding on the Registrants liquidity or results of operations. This list is not intended to be exhaustive.
The Registrants informational filings with the Court, including this Monthly Operating Report, are available to the public at the office of the Clerk of the Bankruptcy Court.
