The S&P/ASX All Ordinaries Index (ASX: XAO) is in the green today, up 0.77% to 7,256.6 points at the time of writing.

Among the market’s blazers are three ASX All Ords tech shares bouncing back from the fall-out of Silicon Valley Bank’s (SVB) collapse.

On the flip side, two ASX All Ords tech shares are tumbling, despite only small exposures to SVB.

Let’s take a look.

ASX All Ords tech shares bouncing back today

To re-cap, SVB was a commercial lender specialising in technology companies.

It was shut down by regulators in the US last Friday.

It’s the biggest bank failure in the US since the global financial crisis (GFC).

Following the news, we’ve seen a roll-out of statements from ASX All Ords tech shares disclosing their exposure to SVB.

Of these, Life360 Inc (ASX: 360) shares are screaming 7.2% higher today to trade at $5.21 at the time of writing.

As my Fool colleague James reported last week, Life360 estimates its exposure is US$5.6 million in deposits. It also has US$75.4 million in shares of money market mutual funds invested in short-term, AAA-rated US Government treasury securities that are in SVB custodian accounts.

Life360 has updated shareholders today to confirm it “has regained access to its funds in SVB
accounts, and is transacting normally”.

Sezzle Inc (ASX: SZL) shares are also up today. The Sezzle share price is currently 53.5 cents, up 0.94%.

The buy now, pay later (BNPL) company has US$1.2 million in deposits with SVB.

Sezzle shares may have extra momentum today due to the company’s plans to list on the NASDAQ.

Finally, Xero Limited (ASX: XRO) shares are up 4% to $88.52 currently.

The accounting software company’s exposure to SVB is approximately US$5 million.

The Xero share price has steadily risen since the company revealed plans to reduce costs and drive growth. Xero shares are up 12.6% since the announcement last week.

ASX All Ords tech shares that are struggling

Meantime, Siteminder Ltd (ASX: SDR) shares are down 2.42% today to $3.425 at the time of writing.

The accommodation e-commerce platform provider updated the market on its exposure to SVB today.

After transferring some of its cash holdings to other lenders upon hearing of SVB’s collapse, SiteMinder was left with a cash exposure of A$10 million.

It also has a US$20 million revolving credit facility with SVB for contingency purposes that has not been drawn on since its initial public offering (IPO).

Today, the company said:

Following actions taken by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Bank of England to fully protect SVB and SVBUK depositors, SiteMinder no longer expects any impact to its cash holdings.

SiteMinder has received confirmation from SVB that it will honour the Group’s US$20m revolving credit facility.

SiteMinder is working with other banks to further broaden its banking arrangements.

Redbubble Ltd (ASX: RBL) shares are also in the red today, down 4.34 to 50.7 cents at the moment.

The arts online marketplace provider has an A$1.3 million exposure to SVB.

The Redbubble share price is down 66% over the past 12 months.
