Superior Offshore Shares Plunge

Sunday, November 18, 2007
Shares of Superior Offshore International Inc., plunged after the company delayed filing its third-quarter financial statement. A Merrill Lynch analyst downgraded the Houston-based company's stock to "Neutral" from "Buy." Superior Offshore shares dropped 77 cents, or 9 percent, to close at $7.83, after plunging 24 percent to $6.56 earlier in the session. The stock has dropped more than 40 percent since its initial public offering priced at $15 in April.

In a Securities and Exchange Commission filing, Superior Offshore said the third-quarter filing was delayed as the company determines whether it is required to reclassify long-term debt as current debt. Superior Offshore said the reclassification may be necessary under the terms of a waiver from a lender related to defaults on the company's senior secured term loan facility. The company is currently negotiating a term loan facility with another lender to refinance the facility. Source: CNN
