Doral Financial Corp., the troubled mortgage lender based in San Juan, Puerto Rico, has reported a net loss of $28.7 million ($0.34 per share) for the third quarter, bringing itself current on its reporting obligations to the Securities and Exchange Commission.Doral said its net loss for the first three quarters of 2006 total $62.5 million ($0.81 per share). The company said its "greatest liquidity challenge" is refinancing $625 million of floating-rate senior notes. "Doral Financial will need significant outside financing during 2007, principally for the refinancing of these notes that mature in July 2007 and to meet certain other working capital and contractual needs of the holding company," the company said. In September, Doral announced an agreement with the SEC to pay a $25 million civil penalty in connection with a probe of Doral's restatement of financial results for 2000-2004. The restatement slashed $694.4 million from its retained earnings through the end of 2004 to correct the accounting for certain mortgage loan sales and the valuation of its interest-only strips.
