Roku Has 26% Of Cash With SVB Financial, Deposit Recovery Uncertain — 27 Other Companies With Ties To Collapsed Bank

Zinger Key Points
  • The collapse of Silicon Valley Bank could prove troublesome for many technology and biotech companies which had deposits there.
  • Roku is one of the largest companies to put out a statement on their relationship.

The collapse of SVB Financial Group SIVB could have a ripple effect on the technology and biotech industries, the two largest sectors that had deposits and financial relationships with the company’s Silicon Valley Bank.

Here’s a look at one of the biggest companies impacted and others who have publicly shared their relationships or could have ties to the struggling bank. 

What Happened: Silicon Valley Bank was closed Friday by the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) was named as receiver for the bank.

The company has struggled to raise additional capital, and concerns of cash burn and liquidity sent shares of the bank down significantly on Thursday and Friday before the stock was halted.

With the FDIC insuring deposits up to $250,000 and Silicon Valley Bank being one of the leading banks for public and private companies in the technology and biotech sectors, many could be impacted by their uninsured deposits becoming unavailable.

One of the largest companies to speak on this issue is streaming company Roku Inc ROKU.

“Roku is aware that Silicon Valley Bank was closed today by the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation, which appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation as receiver,” the company said in an SEC filing.

Roku said all insured depositors of SVB will get full access to their insured deposits no later than Monday morning.

“Uninsured depositors will receive a receivership certificate for the remaining amount of their uninsured funds. As the FDIC sells the assets of SVB, future dividend payments may be made to uninsured depositors.”

Roku reported in the filing that they have $487 million of their $1.9 billion in cash and cash equivalents held at SVB. This represents 26% of the company’s cash and cash equivalent balances as of March 10, 2023.

The remaining $1.4 billion in cash and cash equivalents is split among other “large financial institutions.”

“The company’s deposits with SVB are largely uninsured. At this time, the company does not know to what extent the company will be able to recover its cash on deposit at SVB.”

Roku said it believes it has enough cash and cash equivalents outside of the SVB deposits to meet its working capital needs for the next 12 months and beyond.

With a market capitalization of $8.4 billion and 26% of its cash deposits held at SVB, Roku could be one of the largest companies impacted by the financial crisis.
