Cue Health (NASDAQ:HLTH) stock is down on Wednesday after the healthcare technology company announced plans to wind down its business.

According to a press release from Cue Health, the company has filed voluntary petitions under Chapter 7 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code to pursue this wind-down. The company notes this comes after unsuccessful attempts to secure additional financing or a strategic transaction.

To go along with this, the company has terminated all of its employees. This also includes all the executives leading Cue Health and members of the board of directors. It expects a bankruptcy trustee to take over its operations to conduct an asset sale and repay debts.
