Atari Inc has issued a statement outlining future plans that include securing $5.25 million in financing from Tenor Capital. The U.S. operations plans to either restructure or sell almost all of its current assets within the next few months.

Atari said the bankruptcy proceedings were inevitable as it sought to protect itself from creditors with its “strain on cash resources” due to “adverse trading conditions and limited development funds.”

As LA Times reported, a $28-million credit facility with BlueBay lapsed in Dec. 31.
