On June 4, 2018, Aegean filed a Form 6-K announcing that “approximately $200 million of accounts receivable owed to the Company at December 31, 2017 will need to be written off.” Per the 6-K, certain “transactions that gave rise to the accounts receivable… may have been, in full or in part, without economic substance and improperly accounted for…”
