In this paper we consider factorizations of the form I - K = (I + K-)(D + F)(I + K+), where K-, K+, and D are lower, upper, and diagonal operators relative to a maximal chain P of orthoprojections in a separable Hilbert space. In the case when K, K-, and K+ are Hilbert-Schmidt, we determine the minimal rank of the operator F which occurs in the middle term of the factorization.
