March 10 (Reuters) – Streaming devices maker Roku Inc said on Friday it had about $487 million, or 26% of its cash and cash equivalents, held in deposits with SVB Financial Group, which has been closed down by California banking regulators.
Roku in a regulatory filing also said its deposits with SVB were largely uninsured, sending its shares down 10% in extended trading.
SVB was shuttered by banking regulators on Friday in a bid to protect depositors following a dive in the value of its investment holdings and a rush of withdrawal requests starting just two days ago.
