09:43 EDTRSHFitch: RadioShack 'does not have material sources of liquidity beyond revolver'
RadioShack's weak Q1 results underscore the material challenges in its core business segments with few options left to stem the declines given a tightening liquidity situation, according to Fitch Ratings. Fitch believes RadioShack does not have material sources of liquidity beyond its revolver, as virtually all of its assets have been pledged to its credit facilities. Fitch expects excess liquidity to be very tight as we approach peak seasonal borrowings, which could prompt a restructuring before year end. Absent an agreement with its lenders, it appears that RadioShack will only be able to close 200 stores in 2014, down from its earlier plan to close up to 1,100 stores. In Fitch's view, closing fewer stores will be a drag on profitability and, more significantly, free cash flow, as it will not provide the much-needed funds from inventory liquidation that RadioShack was anticipating. Fitch downgraded the long-term issuer default rating for RadioShack Corp. to 'CC' from 'CCC' on May 15, reflecting the increasing likelihood that RadioShack will need to restructure its debt within the next 12 months. A further downgrade to 'C' would signify that Fitch believes a default at RadioShack is imminent. This would be reflected by further strain on RadioShack's cash flow and liquidity that impedes the company's day-to-day operations.

10:21 EDTRSHStandard General in discussions with RadioShack on new business operating plan
Standard General reports 9.8% stake in RadioShack. Standard General has been in discussions with the company regarding a proposal on a business operating plan and certain ways to improve the company’s liquidity position in advance of the holiday shopping season. Proposals under discussion include Standard General and certain other investors purchasing loans and other commitments under the Company’s asset backed credit facility from its existing lenders. Under such a proposed transaction, Standard General and certain other New Investors may propose to subordinate their investment in the Credit Facility to other investors in order to improve the near-term liquidity available to fund the Company’s holiday working capital needs. Pursuant to such a proposal, the investment by the New Investors could be the first step of a broader recapitalization of RadioShack proposed to be completed by early 2015, which may include Standard General and certain other New Investors acquiring preferred equity convertible into common equity, board nomination rights and corresponding changes to the Company’s structure.
