Let G be a Jordan domain and K C G be relatively closed with Area(K) = 0. Let A2 (G\K) and A2(G) be the Bergman spaces on G\K, respectively G and define N = A2(G\K) Ɵ A2 (G). In this paper we show that with a mild restriction on K, every function in N has an analytic continuation across the analytic arcs of aG that do not intersect K. This result will be used to discuss the Fredholm theory of the operator Cf = PNTf│N, where f ϵ C(G) and Tf is the Toeplitz operator on A2(G\K).
