The figures are a result of the company writing down some of its assets, but if these are overlooked it still made a loss of $47m on revenues of $2.2bn.

In the terms of the companies bankruptcy settlement, WorldCom is obliged to file monthly reports. It must file a reorganisation plan by 15 April, with the aim to emerge from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection by the summer.
