FTX Bankruptcy Update: Creditors to Receive More Than Original Claims

FTX Bankruptcy Update: Creditors to Receive More Than Original Claims

Bankrupt FTX's Creditors to Receive More than Their Original Claims

FTX Creditors to Recover 118% to 142% of Their Claims

In an unexpected turn of events, creditors of Sam Bankman-Fried's bankrupt exchange FTX, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, are set to recover more than their original claims. According to the latest reorganization plan filed by FTX, about 98% of its creditors are expected to receive 118% of what they had on the platform before the company filed for bankruptcy. Surprisingly, some creditors may even recover as much as 142% of what they are owed. The repayment will be made in cash within 60 days of court approval, although the actual payouts may take several months as FTX navigates the final stages of the bankruptcy case.

Non-Governmental Creditors and Interest Compensation

As per the reorganization plan, non-governmental creditors are set to receive 100% of their claims along with an interest of up to 9% to compensate for the time value of their investments. This arrangement, however, is still subject to approval by the Delaware bankruptcy court overseeing the case.

FTX's Recovery Strategy

FTX has managed to recover significantly from its bankruptcy, thanks to a historic rally in cryptocurrencies including Solana, a token heavily backed by FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried. Other sources of value, including investments made by FTX and Alameda Research, have been liquidated to generate cash to pay back the claims.

FTX's Asset Liquidation and Cash Availability

By liquidating its scattered assets around the world, FTX expects to have between $14.5 and $16.3 billion in cash available for distribution once the plan is approved by the Delaware bankruptcy court. Despite having a massive shortfall at the time of filing for Chapter 11, FTX has managed to recover by not benefiting from the appreciation of the missing tokens during the bankruptcy cases.

Settlement of Claims from Regulators and Government Agencies

The new reorganization plan also aims to settle claims from various regulators and government agencies, including the IRS and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). The IRS has agreed to resolve its claims for a cash payment and a subordinated claim that will only be paid out after all creditors and other governmental entities are paid.

Bankman-Fried's Sentence and Appeal

Former FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried, who was sentenced to 25 years in prison, plans to appeal his sentence and conviction. Ironically, if it hadn't been for the Terra-Luna "stablecoin" implosion two years ago, FTX might still be viable, and Bankman-Fried would be a free man and one of the world's wealthiest individuals.

Closing Thoughts
