Cano Health (NYSE:CANO) stock is plummeting on Monday after the primary care medical services company announced a bankruptcy filing.

Cano Health has filed for voluntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. This comes as it enters into a Restructuring Support Agreement with lenders that hold about 86% of its secured revolving and term loan debt, as well as 92% of its senior unsecured notes.

Cano Health also revealed $150 million in new debtor-in-possession financing from existing lenders. These funds, if approved by the bankruptcy court, will allow it to continue operations as normal throughout the restructuring process.

Cano Health CEO Mark Kent said the following about the bankruptcy filing:

“We have taken decisive actions over the past few months to advance our previously disclosed Transformation Plan and strengthen our financial position. By entering this court-supervised restructuring process, we are positioning the Company to achieve those goals on an accelerated basis and focus on what we do best – improving health outcomes for patients at a lower cost.”
