* Vendor credit/payment terms: Genmar confirmed that credit terms for confirmed orders placed after the June 1 bankruptcy filing are treated as administrative expense claims and are considered first priority unsecured claims.

* Financing: Genmar is continuing discussions with its lenders concerning financing needs to develop the business plan and to implement that plan.
