The first day hearing for FTX is underway in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington, Del. Lawyers for the failed crypto exchange say they are working “day and night to bring order to disorder.”
James Bromley, a lawyer from Sullivan & Cromwell representing FTX said: “Unfortunately, the FTX debtors were not well run and that is an understatement.”
He noted management is now conducting a “serious investigation by serious adults” that includes constant communications with the Justice Department, Securities and Exchange Commission, Commodities Futures Trading Commission and state and foreign regulators.
Read Full Report Here.
He outlined management’s five core objectives:
Implement of controls. The firm is now run by an independent board with standard financial controls.
Asset protection and recovery. Bromley acknowledge that a “substantial amount” of assets have either been stolen or missing and that hacks against the company continue.
Transparency and investigation. FTX is working with federal, state and foreign regulators to coordinate efforts.
Efficiency and coordination. Joint provisional regulators in the Bahamas have agreed to move their Chapter 15 case to Delaware.
Maximization of value. FTX will likely file motions soon to sell parts of its business that are robust and self-sufficient.

BBY $76.98 6.16 8.69

Best Buy Co Inc on Tuesday forecast a smaller drop in annual sales than it had previously estimated, saying it was confident that a ramp up in deals and discounts will bring in more inflation-weary customers during the holiday season.
The retailer’s shares rose 8% to $76.60 in premarket trading, after it also said it had resumed its share buyback program and would spend about $1 billion for repurchases this year.
Surging prices have driven down demand for non-essential products this year, forcing Best Buy and other retailers to opt for discounts and promotions to clear excess stock of products such as televisions, laptops and other electronics.
Best Buy expects full-year comparable sales to fall about 10%, compared with a previous forecast of a decrease of about 11%.On an adjusted basis, the company earned $1.38 per share in the third quarter, beating analysts’ estimates of $1.03 per share, according to IBES data from Refinitiv.

FTX Arena in Miami, Fla., Nov. 12, 2022. (Reuters/Marco Bello)

Florida’s Miami-Dade County wants to remove FTX’s name off its arena. The county filed a motion with the bankruptcy court to end its 19-year, $135 million naming rights agreement with the failed cryptocurrency exchange.
“Given the recent collapse of FTX.US and the ensuing regulatory, civil and criminal investigations, it has come to light that the debtors have breached their obligations under the naming rights agreement (NRA) to comply with the laws governing their financial exchange platforms,” a court document said.
“These breaches appear to have been repeated, recurring and incurable. Therefore, there are material defaults that leave the county with no choice but to seek authority from this court to terminate the Naming Rights Agreement effective immediately,” the filing continued.
FTX.US and Miami-Dade county entered into a NRA in April 2021. FTX Arena is home of the Miami Heat basketball team.

Nordstrom reported a net loss of $20 million, or 13 cents per share for the quarter ended Oct. 29, compared to a profit of $64 million, or 39 cents per share, a year earlier.

However, the company reaffirmed its annual revenue and adjusted profit forecast.

Manchester United is commencing a process to explore strategic alternatives for the club.
The process is designed to enhance the club’s future growth, with the ultimate goal of positioning the club to capitalize on opportunities both on the pitch and commercially.
As part of this process, the board will consider all strategic alternatives, including new investment into the club, a sale, or other transactions involving the company.
Earlier, the club said forward Cristiano Ronaldo will leave with immediate effect.

The deeds show these properties, bought by a unit of FTX, were to be used as “residence for key personnel” of the company. Reuters could not determine who lived in the apartments.

A U.S. Senate antitrust panel will hold a hearing on the lack of competition in the ticketing industry after Ticketmaster’s problems last week managing the sale of Taylor Swift tickets, Senator Amy Klobuchar, chair of the panel, said on Tuesday.
“The high fees, site disruptions and cancellations that customers experienced shows how Ticketmaster’s dominant market position means the company does not face any pressure to continually innovate and improve,” Klobuchar said. “That’s why we will hold a hearing on how consolidation in the live entertainment and ticketing industry harms customers and artists alike.”
Senators Klobuchar and Mike Lee, the top Republican on the committee, did not provide a date for the hearing or a list of witnesses.
Ticketmaster did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but has previously blamed presale problems for Swift’s Eras tour, her first tour in five years, on unprecedented demand and an effort to keep out bots run by ticket scalpers.

The company’s operating expenses surged 56% in the third quarter as it spent more on product development and marketing. Its adjusted operating margin shrank to 34.6% from 39.1% a year earlier.
