Due to the allegations, the sponsors pulled out of the active projects and company went broke. They had to fire everyone and let go of the office-space overnight. The statement says,

“After the events of early October, things moved fast. Almost all of our partners hit freeze on future associations, while others pulled out of active projects effective immediately. All of this hit revenue hard.”
