LA JOLLA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Silvergate Capital Corporation (the “Company” or “Silvergate”) (NYSE:SI), the leading provider of innovative financial infrastructure solutions for the digital asset industry, today issued the following statement regarding its exposure to FTX and its related entities (“FTX”):
“In light of recent developments, I want to provide an update on Silvergate’s exposure to FTX. As of September 30, 2022, Silvergate’s total deposits from all digital asset clients totaled $11.9 billion, of which FTX accounted for less than 10%. Silvergate has no outstanding loans or investments in FTX, and FTX is not the custodian of Silvergate’s bitcoin-backed SEN leveraged loans. To be clear, our relationship with FTX is limited to deposits,” said Alan Lane, CEO of Silvergate.
Lane continued: “To date, all SEN Leverage Loans have continued to operate as intended with no losses or forced liquidations. As a reminder, all SEN Leverage Loans are collateralized by Bitcoin, and we do not provide unsecured loans or collateralize SEN Leverage Loans with other digital assets.
Lane concluded: “Silvergate’s platform was designed to support our customers during times of market volatility and transformation, and the SEN has continued to operate as intended and uninterrupted. As a well capitalized federally regulated banking institution, we maintain a strong balance sheet with sufficient liquidity to meet the needs of our customers.
CEO Alan Lane will participate in a fireside chat during the Oppenheimer Blockchain & Digital Assets Summit at 2:55 p.m. ET on Thursday, November 17, 2022.
