A popular shark tank company now files for an unexpected bankruptcy in the district of Colorado as it aims to reorganize its finances.

M.C. Squares, a company that creates Earth-friendly reusable office products, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on December 22nd.

“At M.C. Squares, we create reusable, life-transforming products for the home, office, and everywhere in between,” the company website says. 

“Our journey began with a simple inspiration — to develop a new category of reusable home and office products.

Notably … we became the inventor of the Reusable Sticky Note! Starting in the classroom, we quickly expanded into corporate offices, and now our innovative organization solutions have found a place in your day-to-day routine.”

That’s a noble goal, but consumers have generally rejected green solutions that cost more than the products they’re replacing, reports TheStreet.

At the time of the filing the office-supplies company had $5.7 million in operating losses and owed its various creditors roughly $3.4 million.

M.C. Squares had about $900,000 in assets and counts O’Leary as one of its 20 creditors.

“The startup owes $33,657.84 to O’Leary Productions, $850,000 to the Micro Cap Opportunity Fund, and $408,700 to Denver Angels as highlighted in the filing,” Inside Startups reported.

O’Leary has not commented on the bankruptcy and did not immediately return a request for comment made through the O’Leary Ventures website.

He did recently share some of his personal philosophy on investing on his X (formerly Twitter) page:

“Every penny I don’t spend on something I actually need gets invested and makes more money for me. I buy the good stuff that I need, and I invest the rest,” he posted.

Shark Tank companies filing for bankruptcy are rare, but it does happen and a number of companies showcased on the site have gone out of business.

These include Breathometer, which made a home test to check your blood alcohol level, and Toygaroo, which was pitched as “the Netflix of toys.”
