York Research Defaults on Bonds, Ousts CEO

LCG, Oct. 31, 2001--Renewable energy firm York Research Corp. said yesterday that the $10,345,000 payment due under terms of $150 million of bonds issued by York Power Funding (Cayman) Limited would not be made.

The company said that failure to make the payment, which was due yesterday, before November 9 would constitute default and allow the bonds' trustee to exercise remedies against the collateral put up for the borrowing.

The collateral consists of York's interest in its Trinidad Project, Big Spring Project, Brooklyn Navy Yard Project and Warbasse Project.

York also said it had over the past 18 months used for its general corporate purposes about $17.5 million in revenues generated by the Trinidad Project, which was a violation of bond covenants.

As a result of these problems, Robert M. Beningson has been sacked as chairman, president and chief executive and was placed on unpaid leave of absence. Executive Vice President Robert C. Paladino has agreed to take over Beningson's functions.
