    Exide Technology (XIDE) jumps 17.65% after a judge ruled that the maker of lead-acid batteries can reopen a plant in California that was closed by the state's Department of Toxic Substances Control. The permission to reopen is pending a hearing next month. The department had ordered Exide, which recently filed for Chapter 11, to suspend operations at the plant in April, saying the facility's arsenic emissions posed “an unacceptable risk to public health.”

    Exide Technologies (XIDE -16.3%) is preparing to file for potential bankruptcy protection by this summer, WSJ reports. Any filing likely wouldn't include XIDE's European operations, which account for more than half the company's revenues. XIDE carries ~$700M in debt, and there's concern it won't be able to repay a ~$56M convertible note due in September.

    Shares of Exide Technologies (XIDE -43%) collapse to a nine year low on a report that it's hired Lazard and Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld to advise on a restructuring, including a possible Chapter 11 filing. The company had initially engaged Deutsche Bank last year to lead a global refinancing, but the effort failed, and management is now pursuing more aggressive restructuring alternatives amid a looming September maturity on its convertible notes.

    Exide Technologies (XIDE -11.8%) sinks for a second day after regulators effectively force the closure of a California lead recycling center. Wedbush analyst Craig Irwin downgrades the shares to Neutral and lowers his price target to $2 from $6. The closure "raises issues around a potential impact on the balance sheet and near-term profitability," he says. Shares are now trading under $1.
