On November 14, 2022, FTX filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. The filing states “In fact, there could be more than one million creditors in these Chapter 11 Cases”

On November 11, 2022, FTX issued a press release titled “FTX Group Companies Commence Voluntary Chapter 11 Proceedings in the United States; Begin Orderly Process to Review and Monetize Assets for Benefit of Global Stakeholders; John J. Ray III Appointed Chief Executive Officer; Sam Bankman-Fried Resigns.”

The press release stated that “FTX Trading Ltd. (d.b.a. FTX.com), announced today that it, West Realm Shires Services Inc. (d.b.a. FTX US), Alameda Research Ltd. and approximately 130 additional affiliated companies (together, the “FTX Group”), have commenced voluntary proceedings under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the District of Delaware in order to begin an orderly process to review and monetize assets for the benefit of all global stakeholders.”

Mr. Ray, the newly appointed CEO, stated “The immediate relief of Chapter 11 is appropriate to provide the FTX Group the opportunity to assess its situation and develop a process to maximize recoveries for stakeholders . . . The FTX Group has valuable assets that can only be effectively administered in an organized, joint process. I want to ensure every employee, customer, creditor, contract party, stockholder, investor, governmental authority and other stakeholder that we are going to conduct this effort with diligence, thoroughness and transparency. Stakeholders should understand that events have been fast-moving and the new team is engaged only recently. Stakeholders should review the materials filed on the docket of the proceedings over the coming days for more information.”
