The Sale Will Provide $50 Million To FTX Creditors
Total revenue from transactions to FTX creditors is expected to be approximately $50 million.
John J. Ray III, CEO and Chief Restructuring Officer, FTX Creditors, said: “We are pleased to have reached this agreement with MIH; This deal is an example of our ongoing efforts to monetize assets to provide shareholder returns.”
