Ditech AlertIt appears the financial troubles for Ditech Holdings is are getting worse. A Ditech Alert has been issued by the company. The company has filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy for the second time in 14 months.

The company emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy last year after completing a financial restructuring plan that eliminated $800 million in corporate debt and changed its name to Ditech Holding.

But that wasn’t enough to put the company’s troubles behind it. 

The Ditech Alert was issued yesterday by the company. The announcement stated that  Ditech Financial and Reverse Mortgage Solutions have entered into a restructuring agreement with its creditors.

The company is attempting to eliminate $800 million more in debt. It is also attempting to recapitalize and improve its liquidity.

Ditech plans to continue operating while it’s in bankruptcy. However, the company notes that it is still considering selling the company or selling off company assets.

In June 2018, Ditech warned investors that it was exploring “strategic alternatives to enhance stockholder value,” that included possibly selling the company. That move came after its initial bankruptcy proceedings, which stemmed from a long string of financial losses for the company.

The company declared bankruptcy back in December 2017. Yet, 2018 was more of the same for Ditech.
