The company is bleeding cash and issuing new debt. More worrying is the woefully low Z=score, which indicates distress.

Sure, a whole bunch of insiders bought shares, co-incidentally, on the same day. One must ask if they are doing this with their own cash?

Activist investors may want to get the board on conference-call and give them an earful of spleen.
