The Company expects to generate $4.0 million to $6.0 million of additional liquidity from inventory liquidation over the next four to six months in connection with the restructuring plan."We plan to generate immediate liquidity by selling inventories of exited product categories at prices discounted deeply below historical averages to accelerate demand," said McGeachy. "Additionally, we are working with additional capital sources to improve the amount of liquidity provided by our assets." "While we cannot provide any assurances that the negotiation with our senior lender or our capital raising efforts will be successful, we are several weeks into due diligence with potential capital sources," said McGeachy. "The markets seem supportive of our restructuring plan and receptive to providing us with sufficiently flexible funding to achieve our profitability goals. In fact, we have begun receiving term sheets from interested parties."
