Item 8.01 Other Events

 

On March 20, 2018, Longfin Corp. (the “Company” or “Longfin”) entered into a release and settlement agreement dated March 18, 2018 with Krishanu Singhal, the Company’s former Chief Financial Officer. Pursuant to the terms of the agreement, Mr. Singhal transferred to the Company 2 million shares of Class A common stock, par value $0.00001 per share (the “Class A Stock”) previously issued to Mr. Singhal in connection with his employment with the Company and agreed to transfer restrictions regarding the 1,375,000 shares of Class A Stock he continues to hold, such that 687,500 of such shares will become transferrable upon the earlier of (i) 12 months from the full funding of the Company’s convertible note offering completed in February 2018 and (ii) September 20, 2019, and the remaining 687,500 becoming transferrable upon the first anniversary of the release of the initial 687,500 shares. In no event, however, may Mr. Singhal transfer more than 57,292 in any month following such release. In consideration of Mr. Singhal’s entry into the release and settlement agreement, Longfin has agreed to pay Mr. Singhal $50,000 upon the execution of the agreement and a further $50,000 thirty days following such execution. Each party has agreed to release any claims regarding Mr. Singhal’s employment with the Company (or relating thereto), other than claims arising under the release and settlement agreement.
