Molecular Insight Receives Eleventh Extension of Waiver Agreement With Bond Holders

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - October 6, 2010) -   Molecular Insight Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: MIPI), a biopharmaceutical company discovering and developing targeted therapeutic and imaging radiopharmaceuticals for use in oncology, today announced that the Company has received an eleventh extension of its waiver agreement with its Bond holders, allowing debt restructuring discussions to continue.

Earlier this year, Molecular Insight executed the waiver agreement and subsequent amendments with holders of the Company's outstanding Senior Secured Bonds and the Bond Indenture trustee and announced ongoing discussions with the Bond holders concerning a restructuring of its outstanding debt. Under terms of the eleventh extension announced today, the Bond holders and Bond Indenture trustee agreed to extend the waiver of a default arising from the inclusion of a going concern explanatory paragraph in the independent auditor's report on the Company's financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2009, any default arising from the Company's failure to comply with the minimum liquidity requirements set forth in the Bond Indenture, and other technical defaults under the Bond Indenture. The term of the waiver is extended until 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time on October 15, 2010. During this waiver extension period, the Company will continue to discuss with its Bond holders various proposals. There are no assurances, however, that such discussions will be successful.

The waiver continues to be subject to a number of terms and conditions relating to the provision of certain information to the Bond holders, among other conditions and matters. In the event that the waiver expires or terminates prior to the successful conclusion of the Company's negotiations with its Bond holders regarding the restructuring of its outstanding debt, the Company will be in default of its obligations under the Indenture and the Bond holders may choose to accelerate the debt obligations under the Indenture and demand immediate repayment in full and seek to foreclose on the collateral supporting such obligations. If the Company's debt obligations are accelerated or are not restructured on acceptable terms, it is likely the Company will be unable to repay such obligations and may seek protection under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code or similar relief.
