According to reports, the TSX-listed Voyager Digital is another company that has been negatively affected by financial issues tied to the crypto hedge fund Three Arrows Capital (3AC). In a letter to investors, Voyager’s management explained that 3AC potentially defaulted on a $655 million loan and it hopes to obtain some of the funds by the end of this month.
In a letter sent to Voyager’s investors on Wednesday, the company disclosed it was owed $655 million and 3AC was supposed to pay the funds back in bitcoin (BTC) and the stablecoin usd coin (USDC). Voyager is owed 15,250 BTC and 350 million USDC, according to the company. Management said it originally asked for $25 million worth of USDC to be paid by June 24, but now it wants the entire balance of USDC and BTC by June 27.
The news seemingly did not sit so well with Voyager investors as the company’s shares dropped 53% in value during a 24-hour period. Presently, the TSX-listed stock VOYG-T is down 52% and trading for $0.76 per unit. On June 21, VOYG-T exchanged hands for $1.60 per share and in March 2021, VOYG-T saw an all-time high (ATH) at $32.68 per share. VOYG-T is currently more than 97% lower than the ATH and the stock has been sliding lower ever since crypto markets have dropped in value. The 3AC loan default announcement added another blow to the value of the company’s shares.
The letter that discusses the initial USDC payment request, and then the request for the entire balance, says that Voyager does not know if it will be repaid. “Neither of these amounts has been repaid, and failure by [Three Arrows] to repay either requested amount by these specified dates will constitute an event of default,” Voyager said. “[The company is] unable to assess at this point the amount it will be able to recover.” Bitcoin.com News recently reported on Three Arrows Capital and explained how the company’s founders have been silent about the situation.
