Bed Bath and Beyond’s turnaround plan was supposed to reveal cost cutting measures and a potential sale of its Buybuy Baby division. Unfortunately for investors, the store instead announced a stock sale at an unspecified price, store closures, and laying off of staff. The company also hinted at further stock sales in the future, and confirmed that it has secured $375 million in loans. The moves only serve to magnify the financial instability of the company, and investors agreed, given that the stock fell by more than 21% after the announcement.
