Abstract: We show that the class $ {\mathfrak{E}_0}$ of analytic functions $ f$ in a plane region $ \Omega \notin {O_{AB}}$ vanishing at $ {z_0} \in \Omega $ and such that $ 1/f$ omits a set of values of area $ \geqq \pi $ is not compact. Here $ {O_{AB}}$ denotes the class of Riemann surfaces which have no nonconstant bounded analytic functions. We remark that the extremal functions maximizing $ \vert f'({z_0})\vert$ in $ {\mathfrak{E}_0}$ coincide with linear transformations $ w/(1 - cw)$ of those for the same problem in the class $ {\mathfrak{B}_0}$ consisting of functions $ f$ such that $ f({z_0}) = 0$ and $ \vert f(z)\vert \leqq 1$, i.e. so-called Ahlfors functions. Here $ 1/c$ is an omitted value of the Ahlfors function.
