  1. refrain from onboarding new clients and refrain from providing existing clients with any new or additional services until such time as the MFSA has obtained the necessary information and assurances on the impact that the recent developments may have on the operations of the Company and its ability to satisfy on an on-going basis the applicable requirements under the laws.
  2. provide a detailed report to the MFSA on the impact that these developments have on the business of BTI; and
