"As the company previously announced on August 8, 2007, the company had to re-examine its position regarding declines in the fair value of its available for sale portfolio of its subordinate mortgage-backed securities collateralized by prime mortgage loans," said John A. Burchett, Hanover's president and CEO, in a press release Wednesday.

"Because of these conditions and due to a financing transaction that will have a material impact on the company's financial position and requires disclosure in the company's June 30, 2007, financial statements, the company will be unable to file its Form 10-Q by August 14, 2007," he continued.

Hanover, based in Edison, N.J., invests in prime mortgage loans and mortgage securities backed by prime mortgage loans.
