Troika Media Group (NASDAQ:TRKA) stock is taking a beating on Thursday after the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Troika Media Group notes that this bankruptcy filing is voluntary and was made to allow for a strategic restructuring of the company. That includes plans for Blue Torch Finance LLC to acquire the company in a stalking horse bid.

Troika Media notes that its secured lenders are supporting this plan. This has them providing it with $11 million of debtor-in-possession financing. These funds will be used to continue running the business through the bankruptcy period.

Grant Lyon, interim CEO of Troika Media Group, said the following about the bankruptcy:

“We expect that the process will be relatively short and that the Company will have adequate liquidity to operate the Converge business normally throughout the process. We anticipate that the Company will emerge from Chapter 11 as a private company with a stronger balance sheet.”
