<p>Garg’s SoftBank-backed business, which was once valued at $7.7 billion, through a terrifying period when it went public via a SPAC merger.</p>
<p>The stock, which was previously trading at $17.44, fell 94% last week to $1.15.</p>
<p>On August 24, the digital mortgage lender went public, but the stock wasn’t exactly well received by investors.</p>
<p>Two years ago, Better.com had intended to go public at a $7.7 billion value.</p>
<p>The current market capitalization of Better.com is about $19.14 million.</p>
<p>According to Forbes, Better.com is dealing with “shrinking revenue and hemorrhaging cash as a result of a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) inquiry and the termination of 7,000 employees over the past two years.”</p>
<p>The business said that its management and accounting firm had indicated concerns about the company’s “ability to continue as a going concern” in a prospectus that was submitted to the SEC in July.</p>
<p>According to reports, Garg shut down its real estate arm and fired its real estate personnel in June.</p>
<p>According to TechCrunch, the firm is allegedly switching from an in-house agent strategy to a partnership agent approach.</p>
<p>Garg fired roughly 900 workers in December 2021 as a result of a contentious Zoom conversation.</p>
