The SIPA Trustee is distributing approximately $190.247 million on a pro rata basis to BLMIS account holders with allowed claims, bringing the aggregate amount distributed to eligible claimants to approximately $9.47 billion, which includes approximately $836.6 million in committed advances from the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC).
