On Friday, May 14, 2021, GPB Capital Holdings LLC (“GPB Capital”), a private equity firm based in New York, registered some units in its GPB Automotive Portfolio, LP (“GPB Automotive”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission. As part of its filing, GPB Automotive disclosed that it had substantial doubt of its ability to continue operations. Specifically, GPB Automotive made the following risk factor disclosures to investors and potential investors:
- We have determined that there is substantial doubt as to our ability to continue as a going concern, due to the expiration of the credit facility for the majority of our dealerships within 12 months, as well as certain other factors. Our inability to extend the maturity of our credit facility, or replace the credit facility, prior to its maturity in February 2022 would materially adversely affect our financial condition, results of operations, cash flows and business operations.
- We may not have adequate funds to complete future capital improvement programs or to make additional acquisitions.
