The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists' database of offshore funds contains about 320,000 separate entities. When one is dealing with numbers of that magnitude, it's clear that we've only scratched the surface of the information contained therein. The database, which the ICIJ released in early April, was the culmination of the efforts of some 340 reporters in 80 nations working together. It contains some 214,000 entities managed by the Panama-based law firm Mossack​ Fonseca (the Panama Papers), in addition to about 100,000 additional entities which the ICIJ compiled in 2013. Please note that holding offshore funds is not in itself unlawful.

Here are some of the more recent findings:

1. The cost: $230 billion in lost market cap

This Harvard Business Review article published on May 16 claims that "firms with exposure to any of these major havens lost roughly $230 billion in market capitalization​."

2. Putin: Is he in or is he out?

The connections to Putin are rather hard to follow (he is not specifically named). Here is a helpful video created by "Alltime Conspiracies":

3. One guy from the Rich List

Unsurprisingly, one of the individuals named in the Institutional Investors 2016 list of the richest fund managers appears in the database: David Shaw, founder of the D. E. Shaw group.

4. Some 500 New Yorkers

Marketwatch reported that among the 500 were Eugene Kashper, owner of hipster beverage-maker Pabst Brewing Co.; the Nakash family, founders of Jordache; and gallery owner/woman about town Dominique Levy.

5. Not that many major figures have been deposed as a result of the leak

To reiterate, holding offshore accounts is not unlawful. This might explain why there aren't (yet) thousands of lawsuits and sackings resulting from it. Though the media has already outed a number of celebrities and prominent officials named in the leaks, only a handful of people have actually been deposed, sacked, or suffered legal consequences. Reddit offers a partial list, with sourcing.
