Genesis Global Capital Engages Restructuring Expert to Avoid Bankruptcy

The troubled crypto lender has courted Moelis & Company’s expertise in restructuring to help explore viable options to prevent Genesis Global Capital from plunging into bankruptcy.  

It is conceivable that Moelis & Company is mandated to explore various options not limited to filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The individuals privy to the terms of engagement ruled out that preliminary discussions involved financial decisions. Nevertheless, they have emphasized both parties are prioritizing avoiding a bankruptcy filing. 

Coincidentally, Moelis & Company was recently among consultants contracted by Voyager Digital when it also halted customers’ deposits and withdrawals to allow it to explore strategic options.

Unfortunately, Voyager Digital resorted to Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing. The proceedings initiated in the New York-based – Southern District Court sought relief to facilitate its reorganization to return value to the investors and customers. 

Genesis Global Capital’s spokesperson ruled out the bankruptcy filing by asserting in the November 21 presser priorities to pursue constructive realignments with its creditors. A preliminary assessment by experts estimates that Genesis is seeking an injection ranging from $500 million to $1 billion to resolve the liquidity crunch.
