SunEdison's Bankruptcy Announcement Imminent: Report

Reuters reported Friday evening that Sunedison Inc (NYSE: SUNE) is preparing to file for bankruptcy as soon as Sunday evening.

Reuters, citing a "person familiar with the matter," suggested that the timing of the bankruptcy hasn't been finalized yet. The company already said it requires $310 million to remain in business and expects a cash shortfall of $260 million by mid-June.

Meanwhile, SunEdison's yieldcos, TerraForm Global Inc (NASDAQ: GLBL) and TerraForm Power Inc (NASDAQ: TERP) have hired financial and legal advisors to help prepare the entities with a contingency plan should SunEdison file for bankruptcy.

The yieldcos rely on SunEdison to make interest payments for them along with back office functions, Reuters noted.

SunEdison is down more than 4 percent since Friday's close, trading at $0.354.
