Sam Bankman-Fried’s crypto empire had a $6.8 billion shortfall in its balance sheet when it filed for bankruptcy protection in November, according to a presentation filed to the bankruptcy court on Friday.
In total, the group of companies had debts of about $11.6 billion, the majority of that in customer claims, against $4.8 billion in assets.
The advisers noted that the statements were unaudited and subject to change.
Bloomberg earlier reported on the presentation.
