Home care provider Allied Healthcare said it would continue to "trade safely" while the process of transferring contracts is under way, enabling it to deliver "safe continuity of care".
The company said a warning by the regulator, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) saying it has serious doubts about the future of the company, had "intensified the impact of the challenging environment within which we operate".
The CQC said the Staffordshire-based provider had "every opportunity to confirm a realistically backed plan" and had "failed to do so".
"A short-term extension of the existing lending facility should also help support an orderly transfer of local authority care contracts to alternative providers," it said.

Staffordshire-based Allied Healthcare said a warning by the regulator it was facing financial difficulties led to local authorities withdrawing contracts.
The company said it was working closely with councils to ensure there was no disruption to the continuity of care for the people they support.
Allied Healthcare announced earlier this year it was struggling with debts, blaming low fees paid by councils, but it did manage to restructure its finances on that occasion.
In a project similar to TV's DIY SOS, volunteers are revamping three homes at Telford's Princess Royal Hospital in the hope of enticing more doctors to work there.
Telford and Wrekin Council came up with the idea and it is being supported by donations from local business and parish councils and by volunteers who are giving up their time to carry out the work.

The hospital's accident and emergency department is facing overnight closures, starting next month, because the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital Trust says it can't attract enough staff.
Telford and Wrekin Council says the homes will accommodate junior and middle grade doctors for free and claims it will be the only hospital trust in the country to offer free accommodation on site.
It believes this will be particularly attractive to junior doctors who graduate from university with big debts.Copyright: Telford and Wrekin CouncilCopyright: Telford and Wrekin Council

The Nursing and Midwifery Council has found a Shropshire midwife guilty of misconduct.
Heather Lort was one of the midwives involved in the care of Kate Stanton Davies who died shortly after her birth in Ludlow nine years ago.
She was also facing charges relating to another case in February 2013, which ended in a baby being stillborn.Copyright: Richard Stanton
The NMC found Ms Lort didn't properly monitor Kate's heart rate before birth and didn't act quickly upon signs the newborn was struggling.
This includes not putting the baby in an incubator and not resuscitating her for long enough before paramedics arrived.
The hearing still has to decide what sanctions to impose - that is most likely to happen at some point next week.
