Excite At Home is controlled by AT&T, which owns 23% of the stock but has a 74% voting stake. Other big investors include cable TV providers Comcast, Cox Communications and Cablevision Systems.

It looks as if this might be one of the last nails in Excite's coffin. The stock tanked [quicken.excite.com] (even more) after this debt news went public -off another 22% (now at 39 cents).

The company's main liability lies with the Excite portion of the business, which is highly dependent on advertising and e-commerce for the bulk of its revenue. Excite@Home's media revenue dropped 62 percent in the second quarter. That part of the business is effectively sucking the lifeblood out of what should be a thriving broadband business.

Well, that pretty much spells it out. Excite (the SE part) might as well put its head between its knees and kiss its tail goodbye.
