Operating in the Red
Describing a business that continues operations while losing money. A business may continue to operate in the red due to the extension of a loan or credit line, or because of cash flows that exist despite losses. Obviously, a company can only operate in the red for a certain period of time before making a profit or declaring bankruptcy.
