      Het Cereus-netwerk van Absolute Poker en Ultimate Bet is het netwerk dat het hardste getroffen is door Black Friday.

      Op forums zoals 2+2 gaan er nu geruchten dat het er niet goed voorstaat met het bedrijf en dat de boel wel eens (snel) failliet zou kunnen gaan. Zo werden er onder andere enkele e-mails en memo's gepost die afkomstig zouden zijn van insiders. In hoeverre deze mails betrouwbaar zijn is momenteel nog niet te achterhalen.

      Gaat Cereus failliet?
      Denken jullie dat het zover zou komen dat het bedrijf zoveel schade heeft opgelopen dat er een faillissement moet worden aangevraagd?

      Of is dit gewoon een gerucht, waarmee weer meer paniek gezaaid wordt en waarna achteraf de schade blijk mee te vallen?


      Een overzicht van de geruchten
      De e-mails en memo's die volgens de geruchten verstuurd zouden zijn vind je hieronder.

      Blanca Gaming, het vennootschap achter UB en AP zou het volgende aan haar schuldeisers gestuurd hebben.

      Most importantly, Blanca Gaming has provided notice to our subsidiary Avoine that it is currently unable to make any payments toward its debt obligations. Additionally, Blanca has further advised that there will be no future payments. Over the past 60 days, the Company has accumulated current debts in excess of $250,000 which are increasing at $100,000+ per month. These obligations are primarily legal and professional fees in Norway."

      "With no cash on hand and no prospects for any cash flow for the foreseeable future, the Board of Directors is required by Norwegian law to enter the bankruptcy process.

      Een interne memo die verzonden zou zijn naar 95% van het personeel:

      Re: Restructuring
      As all of you are aware, action was taken by the U.S. Department of Justice on April 15th and we have closed our US-facing operations. We now have to focus our resources on developing our non-US operations and software business. Unfortunately, this also means we must immediately restructure our organization and significantly downsize our operations. It is a very sad day for all of us, as we have worked so hard to create a truly amazing company that is filled with extraordinary people. We have always been and remain fully committed to the employees and consultants of this business.

      TBT employees will be paid full liquidations in accordance with Costa Rican labor laws. Consultants will be paid severance based on length of service. IDS liquidations have been previously funded in full to Olman Rimola.

      Some of you will be approached by the business for a new role with a much smaller company that is focused on continuing our non-US operations and software businesses.

      HR or direct managers will initiate individual meetings with everyone to provide full details, and we hope to get through all of these over the next few days.

      Today's decision has not been made lightly, or in haste. It comes after considerable review from all angles of the impact Black Friday has had on the business as a whole. We are disappointed that events of the past two weeks have effectively forced us to take this action, with downsizing of the business now unavoidable.

      We ask that all of you work from home tomorrow and you will be updated with new work arrangements soon.

      It truly has been a pleasure working with all of you. We thank you for the significant time and dedication you've all shared with us over the years and wish you all the best in your future endeavors.
