The credit manager capitalfounded in 2010, had an expressive fall this Thursday, 22nd. The net worth of the award-winning fund Orion, the manager’s main asset, which was close to 1.75 billion reais, succumbed to around 1.5 billion reais. Furthermore, sources stated to the Economic Radar that around 150 employees were laid off in the last few days — a year ago, there were more than 350. It is speculated on WhatsApp groups of investors that the reason for the collapse would be the company’s withdrawal from going public in March this year. Captalys would have issued a debt security (debenture) with the BTG Pactual and subsequently would not have borne the payment. “It was the biggest problem. Employees put money in there, money from the lives of some, hoping that the IPO would come out”, says an investor who prefers not to be identified. The profitability of Captalys funds is fading and market sources are worried.
After the publication, Captalys sent a position to Radar Econômico and, when asked about the reason for the loss of assets, declined to comment. “Captalys did not carry out the aforementioned terminations and did not issue debentures whose payment was not made”, he says.
