Detailed Information On FTX Creditors
According to the records, the FTX holds $100 million in each of the top ten creditors alone, totaling about 1.45 billion. And it shared sums ranging from $21 million to $203 million with others. The identity of the creditors is unclear, as are their whereabouts.
Based on the filings, the Top 50 List is based on the Debtors’ currently available creditor information, which includes customer information that was previously visible but is no longer available. The Debtors’ inquiry into the amounts listed is ongoing, including payments that may have been made but have not yet been recorded on the Debtors’ books and records. The Debtors also hope to acquire full access to client data.
Following the collapse, the new CEO, John J.Ray III, was hired to handle the processes. He stated that prompt Chapter 11 relief will allow the FTX group to overcome and devise a method to optimize recoveries for stakeholders. And the FTX group has valuable assets that can only be managed successfully through an organized, collaborative procedure. FTX has over 1 million credits, according to the filing.
