On February 28, 2020, Michael J. Orlando notified Nxt-ID, Inc. (the “Company”) of his decision to resign from the Company’s board of directors, effective immediately. Mr. Orlando’s email notifying the board that he was resigning did not identify any disagreement on any matter related to the Company’s operations, policies or practices. However, please see also Item 8.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, which disclosure is incorporated by reference herein.

 

Item 8.01

Other Events.

 

On February 24, 2020, Michael J. Orlando, as Shareholder Representative, and the other stockholders of Fit Pay, Inc. (collectively, the “Fit Pay Shareholders”), filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York against the Company, CrowdOut Capital, LLC, and Garmin International, Inc. (the “Complaint”). See Orlando v. Nxt-ID. No. 20-cv-1604 (S.D.N.Y.). The Complaint alleges the Company has breached certain contractual obligations under a merger agreement, dated May 23, 2017, between Fit Pay, Inc. and the Company (the “Merger Agreement”), regarding certain future, contingent earnout payments allegedly that could be owed to the Fit Pay Shareholders from future revenues (the “Earnout Payments”). The Company previously disclosed the Merger Agreement in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 30, 2017.

 

The Complaint seeks monetary damages from the defendants.

 

The Company believes that these claims are without merit and plans to vigorously defend the action.
