On January 7, 2020, Siebert Financial Corp. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ: SIEB), filed a Current Report on Form 8-K (the “Original Form 8-K”) reporting, among other items, that effective January 1, 2020, the Company completed its acquisition of all of the shares of common stock of StockCross Financial Services, Inc. (“StockCross”) from the StockCross shareholders and the merger of StockCross with and into Muriel Siebert & Co., Inc. (the “Merger”).

This Amendment No. 1 to the Original Form 8-K is being filed solely to include the financial statements and financial information required under Item 9.01, which statements and information were excluded from the Original Form 8-K in reliance on paragraphs (a)(4) and (b)(2) of Item 9.01 of Form 8-K. Except as stated in this Explanatory Note, no other information contained in the Original Form 8-K is changed.

Forward-Looking Statements.
This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

Except as required by law, the Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. The Company’s actual results could differ materially from those contained in forward-looking statements due to a number of factors, including the statements under “Risk Factors” found in the Company’s Annual Reports on Form 10-K and its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC.
