Terraform Labs Plans to Sell Four Businesses Amid $4.5 Billion Settlement with SEC

Terraform And Sec

Under a $4.5 billion agreement with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Bankrupt crypto company Terraform Labs has declared its desire to sell four of its companies, therefore facilitating winding down of its activities.

Companies for Discount

Terraform said on July 9 that it is “actively exploring options” to sell its portfolio monitoring system Pulsar Finance, crypto wallet platform Station, no-code decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) administration system Enterprise, and smart contract automation tool Warp.

Buying Pulsar Finance in November 2023, Terraform declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy in January in Delaware just some months later. In November 2022, the business was introduced to Enterprise. The warp protocol was launched at the end of February, and Station wallet in March, meaning both projects are currently further developed.

Part of Terraform’s “broader wind-down of operations under the terms of its settlement with the US Securities and Exchange Commission” the transaction intends to “maximize value for its creditors and other stakeholders.

Settlement with SEC

Terraform settled with the SEC this month for $4.5 billion, agreeing to pay around $3.6 billion in disgorgement, a $420 million civil penalty, and almost $467 million in prejudgement interest. Together with Terraform, when signing the consent, Do Kwon, the founder and the former chief executive officer, agreed to Disgorgement of $110 million, prejudgment interest in the total of $14,3 million, and a Civil penalty in the amount of $80 million.

Closing the SEC’s February 2023 lawsuit for securities law violations and fraud against Kwon and Terraform Labs, the settlement also effectively precluded them from the digital assets industry.
