Why Revlon Stock Is Plunging Monday Afternoon

Revlon Inc REV shares turned sharply lower Monday following a Dow Jones report suggesting Revlon shareholders are unlikely to receive much, if anything, as a result of the company's bankruptcy. 

According to the report, Revlon said in a court filing that it doesn't need an official equity holders committee for the chapter 11 process because it appears that shareholders are unlikely to receive much as a result of the reorganization.

Revlon reportedly noted that Hertz Global Holdings Inc HTZ didn't have an official shareholder committee as part of its bankruptcy, yet the company paid out approximately $1 billion in equity value.
