View (NASDAQ:VIEW) stock is falling hard on Wednesday after the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection as a way to go private.

View filed for Chapter 11 in order to enact a restructuring of the company. This will also see it be financed by Cantor Fitzgerald, L.P. and RXR. As a result, the company will come out of bankruptcy as a private business.

View will continue normal operations throughout the bankruptcy process. The company also expects to exit bankruptcy within 45 days of its Tuesday filing. It believes this reorganization will improve its balance sheet and better position it for the future.

With this deal with Cantor Fitzgerald, L.P. also comes changes to its leadership team. This will see it become a private company with a reorganized board of directors. Cantor Fitzgerald chairman and CEO Howard Lutnick and RXR chairman and CEO Scott Rechler will also support the company.

View CEO Rao Mulpuri said the following about the news:

“Today’s announcement marks the culmination of a thorough strategic review of our business operations to help ensure we have the proper capital structure going forward. With the support of Cantor Fitzgerald and RXR, we intend to maximize our business potential with increased financial stability and be better positioned to increase our presence across the real estate ecosystem.”
