Boxed (NYSE:BOXD) stock is falling hard on Wednesday after the company floated the possibility of bankruptcy to investors.

During a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Boxed brought up that it may have to file for bankruptcy. This comes as the company negotiates with lenders concerning the satisfaction of milestones in its Forbearance Agreement.

According to Boxed’s SEC filing, there are several issues connected to its Forbearance Agreement. That includes it failing to deliver an acceptable debtor-in-possession budget, not entering into a binding debt commitment, or not making the repayment.

Here’s what Boxed says about the situation in that SEC filing:

“The Lenders have provided limited extensions for the satisfaction of these milestones to permit the Company and the Lenders to continue their discussions, although the Company may not be able to satisfy the terms of the prepayment at this time. In connection with the foregoing, the Company has implemented cash management strategies, including streamlining operations and headcount reductions.”

How This Affects BOXD Stock

Investors aren’t excited about the possibility of bankruptcy. That makes sense as it would present several problems for the company. It could even include the complete delisting of its shares if things get too bad.

This has some investors jumping ship, with around 1.3 million shares changing hands in early morning trading. However, that’s still below its daily average trading volume of about 3.4 million shares.

BOXD stock is down 41% as of Wednesday morning.
