According to the company’s press release, it has chosen to voluntarily file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection after exploring its strategic alternatives. The company also notes it has $15.5 million in debtor-in-possession financing to continue operations throughout the bankruptcy.
Now that Alpine Summit Energy has filed for bankruptcy, the company is considering selling its assets. In addition to that, the company’s debtors have already filed several “first day” motions with the bankruptcy filing.
What This Means for ALPS Stock
A bankruptcy filing is never good news for a company’s stock and that’s the same for ALPS stock. With this filing and plan to sell assets, it seems unlikely that ALPS shares will keep trading for much longer. Investors are likely going to see a delisting notice from the Nasdaq for ALPS stock in the coming days.
To go along with this, some 312,000 shares of ALPS stock are changing hands as of this writing. That’s closing in on the company’s daily average trading volume of about 370,000 shares. With that movement comes ALPS stock falling 4.3% on Friday. That builds on a 48.5% drop the shares saw during normal trading hours on Thursday.

On Penny Stocks and Low-Volume Stocks: With only the rarest exceptions, InvestorPlace does not publish commentary about companies that have a market cap of less than $100 million or trade less than 100,000 shares each day. That’s because these “penny stocks” are frequently the playground for scam artists and market manipulators. If we ever do publish commentary on a low-volume stock that may be affected by our commentary, we demand that InvestorPlace.com’s writers disclose this fact and warn readers of the risks.
