FTX creditor claims increase to as high as 65 cents on the dollar

Quick Take

  • Larger FTX claims are being offered for as much as 60¢ – 65¢ on the dollar as the recovery outlook for FTX’s creditors continues to improve.

Some larger FTX creditors are being offered as much as $0.60 to $0.65 on the dollar, marking an increase of as much as 30% when compared to about a month ago. 

In late October, some over-the-counter (OTC) trades of FTX creditor claims closed at over $0.50 on the dollar. 

FTX debt claim specialist Thomas Braziel said he thinks the outlook could continue to improve. "The claims should approach the horizon of the recovery which is probably somewhere in the 80% to 90% plus range," he said.

But while Baziel, who is a partner at 117 Partners, confirmed some claims are currently being offered for as much as $0.60 to $0.65 on the dollar, securing the high end of that range will be difficult for some. "Multiple big distressed firms are heading into the 60s now," he said while highlighting the fact that only clean, multi-million dollar claims are likely to get close to $0.65.
