Yes, that's what they did. No longer needing to sit on that money is a sign of progress, but not a demonstration that they are completely "fixed".

no you still owe me $1000.
That other $1000 now sits in your hands in the form of stock. That's what ScOoTeR was trying to explain. "Fixing" that situation is not as cut & dry as returning money that will no longer be needed, as suggested by Ovrlnd's comment about whether the Gov't will now pull out and sell the shares back.
