Aftermarket parts maker Holley files for bankruptcy
Not all is lost, as bankruptcy for a company in the U.S. just means you get some time to reorganize and pay off your debts, hopefully reemerging as a stronger company in the end. As such, Holley wlll continue to operate as normal for the time being and none of its 390 employees spread across Kentucky, California and Mississippi will be affected. Paying off its debt will likely require the company to give nearly all its equity away to debtors, though those holding notes will only get half of what they're owed if a bankruptcy judge approves the reorganization plan. Thanks for the tip, Tobias!
