So its sounds like the company is using the bankruptcy protections to reorganize and comeback stronger, like many companies do each year.  I don’t like the way that works, and call it a bailout that businesses have always had, but that is the way business works.  Look at all the big resorts in town.  Many have done this before they became profitable.  It is just the normal people who don’t use this kind of welfare.  Businesses do it all the time.  Now the battery company can comptete, because it won’t have the debt issues it had.
