The sad news comes as BBBY just announced a turnaround plan that disappointed investors.
The home goods retailer announced the potential launch of a market offering program for up to 12 million shares of common stock. Last quarter, Bed Bath & Beyond reported total debt of $3.27 billion and a debt-to-equity ratio of -23.47. This shows that the company’s liabilities exceed its assets.
According to Bloomberg, some suppliers have already stopped shipments to Bed Bath & Beyond after the company delayed some payments.
The company will close about 150 lower-producing Bed Bath & Beyond stores and lay off about 20 percent of its workforce. It hopes to cut selling, general and administrative expenses by $250 million for fiscal 2022, compared with an earlier forecast of $400 million.
It also secured $500 million in new debt financing. But the company decided to keep the Buybuy Baby business when investors hoped the chain was going to sell it.
