In a statement shared with The Block, BitGo said it “intends to take legal action against Galaxy Digital for its improper decision to terminate the merger agreement with BitGo, which was not scheduled to expire until December 31, 2022, at the earliest and to not pay the $100 million reverse break fee it had promised back in March 2022 in order to induce BitGo to extend the merger agreement.”

BitGo has retained the law firm Quinn Emanuel, according to its press statement. “The attempt by Mike Novogratz and Galaxy Digital to blame the termination on BitGo is absurd,” partner R. Brian Timmons said in a statement. BitGo said it would either seek the $100 million fee or more than that amount in legal damages, per the statement. As previously reported, Galaxy announced the termination due to a “failure to deliver, by July 31, 2022, audited financial statements for 2021 that comply with the requirements.#togrp7
