Ethanex - Kansas Ethanol Company - says will File for Bankruptcy

Saying they weren't able to secure interim financing to continue operations, Ethanex Energy (OTC BB: EHTE.OB) says it has plans to file for bankruptcy.

In a federal filing on March 24, the company stated they had ceased operating, and they now have a skeleton staff of three.

This effectively ends an agreement where they were going to buy an ethanol plant in Nebraska for $50 million, which is owned by Midwest Renewable Energy.

Ethanex needed $1.5 million in short-term financing to continue operating.
