InvestorNewsBreaks – Tingo Group Inc. (NASDAQ: TIO) Announces Engagement of Independent Counsel, Approval of Proposals at Special Meeting

Tingo Group (NASDAQ: TIO), a profitable and fast-growing fintech and agri-fintech company, has engaged White & Case LLP, a leading international law firm, to conduct an independent review. According to the announcement, the review is related to allegations made in a June 6, 2023, report published by short seller Hindenburg Research. The company noted that, following the review, the firm will report to the company’s independent directors. The announcement also stated that before engaging White & Case, Tingo Group had begun its own internal review. The review was designed to confirm, among other things, the number of farmers on Tingo Mobile and the Nwassa platform, relationships with contracted cooperatives, the relationship with the All Farmers Association of Nigeria and the company’s cash balances. “The company continues to refute the allegations and misinformation contained in the Hindenburg report,” the company stated in the announcement. “A self-described short seller, Hindenburg has a disclosed economic incentive to negatively influence the company’s share price. The company strongly believes it is in shareholders’ best interests to allow White & Case’s independent review to be carried out unhindered, and it is committed to protecting its integrity. As such, the company intends to make no further comment on Hindenburg’s allegations until the review has been completed.”

In addition, Tingo Group has announced the results of the proxy vote associated with the company’s special meeting of its stockholders. According to the update, the stockholders approved all three of the resolutions presented in the definitive proxy statement, as sent to the company’s shareholders on May 1, 2023. These include approval of the issuance of 26,042,808 shares of Tingo Group’s common stock upon the conversion of 2,604.28 shares of Tingo Group’s Series A Preferred Stock, as required under the terms of the acquisition of Tingo Mobile (the “merger”), and the increase in the authorized shares of the company’s common stock from 425,000,000 shares to 750,000,000, to accommodate the conversion of both the Series A Preferred Stock and the Series B Preferred Stock under the terms of the merger, and to accommodate future strategic business decisions.
