Proterra (NASDAQ:PTRA) stock is a hot topic among traders on Thursday after warning investors about the state of its business.

Gareth Joyce, CEO of Proterra, gave a grim update to traders during the company’s latest conference call. During the earnings call, Joyce said that a going concern for the company is the continued survival of its business.

According to Joyce, there is “substantial doubt about our ability to continue,” from both Proterra’s leadership team as well as its auditors. That warning has shaken investor confidence in the company, which explains the drop in PTRA stock we’re seeing today.

The Future of PTRA Stock

Things aren’t looking good for Proterra based on management’s recent comments. Also not helping matters is the company’s revenue guidance from its latest earnings report. This has it expecting between $450 million and $500 million for 2023. That would see the company missing Wall Street’s estimate of $533.8 million for the year.

All of this bad news has PTRA stock seeing heavy trading today as investors sell shares. As of this writing, more than 7 million shares have changed hands. That’s well above Proterra’s daily average trading volume of about 1.5 million shares.

PTRA stock is down 44.4% as of Thursday morning and down 63.1% since the start of the year.
