Crypto Firm Voyager Digital Secures a $500M Line of Credit From Alameda Ventures to Cope With 3AC Exposure

Three days ago, Bitcoin-Tidings.com News reported on the publicly listed company Voyager Digital after the crypto firm announced that it was owed $655 million worth of digital assets. Now according to a press release from Voyager, the company has secured funds from Alameda Ventures in order to get more access to liquidity.

Voyager Borrows $500 Million from Alameda

Voyager Digital Holdings, Inc. has revealed a collaboration with Alameda Ventures as the venture company has provided Voyager with a line of credit. The funds are “intended to help Voyager meet customer liquidity needs during this dynamic period.” Last week, reports noted that Voyager was suffering through financial hardship due to its exposure with Three Arrows Capital (3AC). Voyager said in a note to investors that it is owed 15,250 BTC et 350 million USDC, and the company gave 3AC a deadline to pay back the funds.

Voyager’s TSX-listed stock plummeted after the announcement losing more than 50% in value in less than 24 hours. By borrowing from Alameda, Voyager will use the funds to meet customer liquidity demands and strengthen operations during the crypto market volatility. [Voyager] entered into a definitive agreement with Alameda for a US$200 million cash and USDC revolver and a 15,000 BTC revolver,” Voyager said in a statement. The company added:

As previously disclosed, the proceeds of the credit facility are intended to be used to safeguard customer assets in light of current market volatility and only if such use is needed.

Alameda Applies Certain Loan Conditions

Entre-temps, the news follows the crypto lender Blockfi securing a $250 million line of credit from FTX. Following the loan, a rapport published by the Wall Street Journal claims that FTX is discussing purchasing a stake in Blockfi. While Alameda is offering Voyager funds, there are some conditions that Voyager must abide by. Par exemple, “Alameda’s obligation to provide funding is subject to certain conditions, comprenant: no more than US$75 million may be drawn down over any rolling 30-day period.” The loan agreement summary further adds:

[Voyager’s] corporate debt must be limited to approximately 25 percent of customer assets on the platform, less US $500 million; and additional sources of funding must be secured within 12 mois.

Voyager still intends to pursue assets from 3AC and has been discussing the “legal remedies available.” The announcement notes that Voyager is “unable to assess at this point the amount it will be able to recover from 3AC.” On June 21, Voyager’s shares listed on TSX were trading for $1.23 par unité, and today, the stock is exchanging hands for $0.58 par unité. En outre, Alameda indirectly holds 22,681,260 common shares of Voyager, equating to 11.56% of outstanding common and variable voting shares.
