FTX During Bankruptcy Hearing: Substantial Assets Stolen/Missing
FTX Bankruptcy Hearing News: The attorney representing FTX said during the bankruptcy hearing that a substantial amount of assets were stolen or missing. Attorney Bromley also said that unfortunately the FTX debtors were not particularly well run. In his opening remarks, the attorney described the FTX case as ‘unprecedented’. He further said top FTX executives including Sam Bankman-Fried kept unreliable records.
“There was a run on the bank in November, and FTX is controlled by a very small group of people including Sam Bankman-Fried, who kept unreliable records. A substantial amount of assets have either been stolen or are missing.”
Going forward, the main aim of FTX is to maximize assets to be able to return dues to investors. Bromley said maximization is a core objective, whether it means selling businesses or reorganizing businesses. Speaking about the FTX collapse during the hearing, the attorney said it happened very quickly and was quite shocking. He also described the meltdown as “one of the most abrupt and difficult corporate collapses in the history of corporate America.”
