Tether reports record-breaking $4.52 billion profit

Tether Releases Q1 2024 Attestation: Reports Record-Breaking $4.52 Billion Profit, Highest Treasury Bill Ownership Percentage Ever, Total Group Equity of $11.37 Billion

Today, 1st May 2024, Tether Holdings Limited (BVI) released its assurance opinion for the first quarter of 2024, conducted by BDO, a leading global independent accounting firm. The most recent attestation as of 31 March 2024, discloses additional financial information of Tether Group which is no longer limited to the reserves backing Tether Fiat-denominated stablecoins. The new report provides an overview of the entire Group’s financial strengths complementing the information provided in the former Reserve report which has become a section of this new enlarged and more transparent report.

Building on the momentum from Q4 2023, the first quarter of 2024 marked a significant milestone for the group with a record net profit of $4.52 billion.

The main contributing entities are those in charge of issuing Stablecoins and managing the respective reserves where approximately $1 billion of this profit stemmed from net operating profits, primarily derived from US Treasury holdings. The remainder of the reported profits were comprised of mark-to-market gains in Bitcoin and Gold positions. Additionally, Q1 2024 showcased the Group’s unprecedented achievement in increasing both direct and indirect ownership of U.S. Treasuries, now in excess of $90 billion. Indirect exposure was calculated to include overnight reverse-repurchase agreements collateralised by US Treasuries, as well as investments in US Treasuries through money market funds.

Furthermore, as part of its steadfast dedication to transparency, the Group unveiled its net equity for the first time, revealing an impressive $11.37 billion as of March 31, 2024. This reflects a notable uptick from the recorded equity of $7.01 billion on December 31, 2023. The report highlights a $1 billion increase in excess reserves maintained as a buffer to support the Company’s stablecoin offerings, pushing the total to nearly $6.3 billion.
