Chesapeake 1Q Net Loss Mind-Blowing $8.3 Billion – Bankruptcy Near

Chesapeake Energy issued its first-quarter 2020 update yesterday–but not in the typical fashion.

Still, it was bad enough. The 10-Q said “management has concluded that there is substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern” and there is a “likelihood of a restructuring or reorganization.”
