RadioShack Corporation (OTCMKTS:RSHCQ) has been one of the top most trading and fastest rising stocks on the bb’s in recent days after it emerged that Radio Shack will re-open later in April under the ownership of hedge fund Standard General LP with an assist from Sprint Corp.
According to plans filed with the bankruptcy court, the stores will look a lot like the streamlined outlets RadioShack Corp. had hoped to build before running short on cash earlier this year.
RadioShack Corporation (OTCMKTS:RSHCQ) is the store we all went to as kids to buy batteries, radios, cameras and cable wire and other technology of the time. The Company has over 1,700 stores that it’s in the process of closing as well as 4,297 total locations that it’s going to have to make decisions on.
RadioShack was a leading national retailer of innovative technology products and services, as well as products related to personal and home technology and power supply needs. RadioShack offers consumers products and services from leading national brands, exclusive private brands and major wireless carriers, all within a comfortable and convenient shopping environment.
Today’s RadioShack is dedicated to reinvigorating stores, revamping product assortment and repositioning the brand. With a refined product mix, enhanced in-store experience and expert associates, the new RadioShack is the neighborhood technology resource, equipping consumers with the right product and know-how based on their needs. RadioShack continues to make significant strides in all five areas of our turnaround plan – most visibly through our new brand, updated stores and new product assortment.
In 2013, the company made improvements to nearly all U.S. company-owned stores. This includes more than 100 concept and brand statement stores, which feature bright, completely redesigned interiors and the new exterior signage featuring the company’s new look, incorporating interactive areas designed to help shoppers improve their technology profile.
In February the Company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in Delaware. This comes after many years of deteriorating sales and a tanking stock price that has lost 99% of its value over the last 10 years.

Radio Shack disclosed that it has reached an agreement with hedge fund Standard General for the firm to purchase up to 2,400 of its stores. In a statement, RadioShack said:
”RadioShack currently has approximately 4,000 company owned stores in the U.S. Its more than 1,000 dealer franchise stores in 25 countries, the stores operated by its Mexican subsidiary, and its Asia operations are not included in the Chapter 11 filing or the agreements announced today.
Discussions are underway with interested parties to sell all of the company’s remaining assets. These steps are the culmination of a thorough process intended to drive maximum value for our stakeholders” said RadioShack CEO Joe Magnacca.
The fact is that in most cases, even when a Company successfully exits Chapter 11, the old commons (in this case RSHCQ) are wiped out as the surviving Company creates a new capital structure.
Despite this fact RSHCQ continues to trade significant volume in recent weeks prompting RadioShack to issue a press release saying ”In light of the trading volume in its common stock at prices in excess of $0.20 per share, RadioShack Corporation today reiterated its belief that there will be no recovery for any equity holder in its pending Chapter 11 proceedings.
Equity holders of a company in Chapter 11 bankruptcy generally receive value only if all claims of a company’s secured and unsecured creditors are fully satisfied. RadioShack said it believes that the claims of its secured and unsecured creditors will not be fully satisfied, leading to the conclusion that RadioShack common stock has no value.”
