Following the confirmation of FTX as the winner of the auction for the assets of bankrupt crypto brokerage Voyager Digital Ltd, its creditors have challenged the proposed plans to offer the company’s officers and directors immunity from any lawsuits related to the collapse of the crypto brokerage firm, court papers filed on 12 October revealed.
According to the court filings, the creditors, while not opposing the proposed sale to FTX as same, are necessary to “maximize recoveries to the Debtors’ unsecured creditors in the most timely, efficient, and effective manner,” they believe that the sale appears to be conditioned on “broad releases for Voyager’s directors and officers.”
Voyager creditors alleged further that they investigated the circumstances that led to the crypto brokerage’s bankruptcy. While not disclosing their findings, the creditors claimed that “the findings are sobering.”
Per court filings, the state of things foisted upon the creditors a “Hobson’s choice” to “either support consummation of the Sale Transaction and the Second Amended Plan, together with effectively full and complete releases of the Debtors’ directors and officers, or risk these Chapter 11 Cases devolving into a morass of litigation, to the sole detriment of unsecured creditors, whose assets will continue to remain frozen for a far longer period of time.”
