In the report, the analyst notes:

"Net loss for the second quarter of 2010 was $69 million, or $0.32 per share, compared to a net loss of $37 million, or $0.21 per share, in the second quarter of 2009. Net loss for the second quarter was affected by the closure of company-operated stores, the decline in same-store sales, and liquidity issues including costs associated with recapitalization initiatives and lease termination costs.  

"BLOKA and its senior debt holders had a meeting last week with six major movie studios discussing their intention to enter a preplanned bankruptcy for about five months, the Los Angeles Times reported. A preplanned bankruptcy would allow BLOKA to escape leases at some of its underperforming stores, and could result in the closure of another 500 to 800 locations."
