While the developer has significant assets, it doesn’t have enough cash. Company head John Musumeci hopes Arlie’s reorganization will only take a few months.

“Five of our six banking partners have been willing to work with us on a restructuring plan,” Musumeci said Wednesday evening. “However, despite many discussions over the last several months, we have been unable to reach agreement with Umpqua Bank.
