Skinny Nutritional Corp., the local flavored-water marketer that saw most of its board resign earlier this year, has filed a Chapter 11 petition to restructure its operations.
Now based in Bryn Mawr, the company listed total assets of $2.93 million and total debts of $6.01 million in documents filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Philadelphia. Skinny Nutritional makes Skinny Water, which has been marketed as a zero-calorie, zero-sugar bottled water beverage.
In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Skinny Nutritional stated that the "decision to seek protection under Chapter 11 was triggered" by an attempt by its New York-based lender, Trim Capital L.L.C., to foreclose on certain assets, including its portfolio of trademarks.
You never know when an acquisition involving the automobile industry in the Midwest in 1998 might affect a drug-development firm in the Philadelphia area in 2013.
But that’s apparently the backstory of $15 million in financing completed last week by Exton-based AltheRx Pharmaceuticals.
That round of investment was led by Becker Ventures L.L.C., a family office- investment management firm that manages the wealth of Charles E. Becker, who had been chief executive and co-owner of Becker Group Inc., a privately held automotive- interior supplier.
