SEC的法律文件显示,与R3-Ripple的和解金额超过2.4亿美元

2020-12-25 12:20

 

Ripple和enterprise区块链公司R3此前卷入了一项期权协议的诉讼,该协议授予R3购买50亿瑞波币的权利。关于2018年9月达成的保密和解协议的一个关键细节,在SEC周二提交的针对瑞波的法律文件中被泄露了出来。


相关细节是,“一家企业软件公司”在2019年行使了购买10.4亿瑞波币的选择权。鉴于我们不知道R3出售代币的确切时间,这意味着和解金额在2.4亿美元至4.7亿美元之间。


截至2019年9月期权到期的一年,瑞波币的价格区间为24美分至47美分,大部分时间在30美分左右。如果以每股24美分的低价行使10.4亿美元,和解金额将达到2.4亿美元。瑞波币的价格在9月底出现了下跌。

 

Ripple R3的纠纷与R3据称未履行的营销义务有关,R3获得了以0.85美分购买最多50亿瑞波币的选择权。坊间传言,和解金额从1亿美元到10亿美元不等。然而,考虑到R3在高烧钱率和近期没有融资的情况下仍然有一个强劲的资产负债表,这个数字明显高于1亿美元。


从美国证券交易委员会提交的段落:“2016年,连锁企业达成协议软件公司(“B选项投资者”)位于曼哈顿,给公司一个选项以折扣价格购买50亿XRP换取努力帮助连锁发展“XRP使用”。随后,期权下可购买的瑞波币数量减少,期权投资者B在2019年至少购买了10.4亿瑞波币。”

 

Ripple and enterprise blockchain firm R3 were previously involved in litigation over an options agreement that granted R3 the right to buy five billion XRP. A critical detail about the confidential settlement reached in September 2018 was leaked in SEC legal papers filed against Ripple on Tuesday.

The pertinent detail is that ‘an enterprise software firm’ exercised an option to buy 1.04 billion XRP in 2019. Given we don’t know precisely when R3 sold the tokens, that puts the settlement between $240 million and $470 million.

The XRP price range for the year to the option’s expiry in September 2019 was 24 cents to 47 cents, with most of the time around 30 cents. If 1.04 billion was exercised at the 24 cent low, the settlement figure would be $240 million. There was a dip in the XRP price in late September.

The Ripple R3 dispute related to R3’s allegedly unfulfilled marketing obligations for which it was granted an option to buy up to 5 billion XRP at 0.85 cents. Gossip suggested the settlement was anything from $100 million to $1 billion. However, given R3 still has a strong balance sheet despite a high burn rate and no recent funding, it became apparent the figure was significantly above $100 million.

Here’s the paragraph from the SEC filing: “in 2016, Ripple entered into an agreement with an enterprise software firm (“Option Investor B”) based in Manhattan that gave the firm an option to buy up to 5 billion XRP at a discounted price in exchange for efforts to help Ripple develop a “use” for XRP. The amount of XRP available for purchase under the option was later reduced, and Option Investor B purchased at least 1.04 billion XRP in 2019.”
