Item 8.01 – Other Events
On July 22, 2019, Perma-Fix Environmental Services, Inc. (the “Company”) received a release of $5,000,000 in finite risk sinking funds (“sinking funds”) from AIG Specialty Insurance Company (“AIG”) resulting from the completion of the closure activities at the Company’s East Tennessee Material and Energy Corporation (“M&EC) facility. These proceeds will be used for general working capital purposes. The $5,000,000 represents a partial release of the total sinking funds held as collateral under the Company’s financial assurance policy with AIG entered into in 2003 (“Closure Policy”). In connection with the partial release of the sinking funds, total coverage remaining under the Closure Policy stands at approximately $19,000,000. Additionally, the maximum coverage allowable under the Closure Policy was amended from $39,000,000 to $28,000,000.
