SEC files objection to Binance.US’s plans to acquire Voyager Digital


Recommended Posts

The SEC wants to see more information included in the $1.022 billion deal between Binance’s U.S. arm and Voyager Digital before it agrees to the acquisition.


The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has filed a “limited objection” to crypto exchange Binance.US’s proposed $1 billion takeover of bankrupt crypto lender Voyager Digital, citing a lack of “necessary information.”


The limited objection was filed on Jan. 4, with the SEC pointing to a lack of detail regarding Binance.US’s ability to fund the acquisition, what Binance.US’s operations would look like following the deal, and how customer assets will be secured during and after the transaction.

A limited objection is similar to a normal objection but only applies to a specific part of the proceedings.


Additionally, the regulator also wants Voyager to provide more detail on what would happen should the transaction not be consummated by April 18.


In its filing, the SEC said it already communicated its concerns with Voyager and the lender intends to file a revised disclosure statement prior to a hearing on the matter.


Some commentators interpreted the objection as the SEC suggesting Binance.US would not be able to afford the acquisition without “some untoward dealing” such as receiving funds from Binance’s global entity.
