Virgin Orbit (VORB:NSD) Seeks Bankruptcy Protection

Virgin Orbit Stock

Virgin Orbit (VORB:NSD), company founded by Richard Branson, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection under the United States Bankruptcy Code. The decision followed the inability of the company to raise sufficient finances to continue operating. Dan Hart, the chief executive officer of Virgin Orbit, stated that the Chapter 11 procedure is the ideal way to find and finalise an efficient and value-maximizing sale.

The company has been battling to remain profitable and recently announced a headcount reduction of around 85% as part of a cost-cutting strategy after failing to secure significant investment.

Under bankruptcy protection, Virgin Orbit intends to continue the sale of its business, and Virgin Investments Ltd will offer $31.6 million in Debtor-in-Possession finance to fund its operations and sale process.

Following the announcement of layoffs, Virgin Orbit stock dropped by more than 43%, and it has fallen around 89% year-to-date.
