Pantech Group going broke?

Uh oh, this can’t be good. I thought that Pantech was doing pretty well for itself lately, expanding into international markets like never before. I guess I was wrong. Turns out that Pantech Group is “on the verge of bankruptcy”, according to Telecoms Korea.

Korea’s third largest mobile phone manufacturer has requested a number of creditors to “launch a corporate workout program in order to deal with liquidity [sic] crisis it now is faced with.” The cell phone market is ridiculously competitive, and when you’re loading yourself up with a pile of debt, and not balancing things out with oodles of sales, you’re just asking for trouble.
