Midway Are 50 Days Away From Bankruptcy

Illustration for article titled Midway Are 50 Days Away From Bankruptcy

Poor Midway. They sure ain't what they used to be. From arcade powerhouse to third-rate console publisher, today it's been revealed the company are now facing a new low.


An SEC filing uncovered by Variety shows the company have 50 days to settle their outstanding debts. Debts that, as of today, stand at $150 million. Pity Midway don't have that kind of money.

As it stands, they have a pinch over $10 million. So, no, over the next 49 days they will not be repaying their debts. Which means they'll have to look at alternate options.


Those options basically entail getting advisory company Lazard to help them out. If Lazard can't perform a miracle, well, Midway will have to declare bankruptcy.

In this day and age, that won't mean the end of Midway, but it definitely doesn't help things.
