Extension of Term of Deferred Prosecution Agreement
As previously disclosed, on November 1, 2017, MoneyGram International, Inc. (the Company) agreed to a stipulation with the Middle District of Pennsylvania (the MDPA) and the U.S. Department of Justice (the U.S. DOJ and, together with the MDPA, the Government) that the term of the Companys previously-disclosed deferred prosecution agreement (DPA) be extended for 90 days to February 6, 2018. On January 31, 2018, the Company agreed with the Government that the term of the DPA be extended for an additional 45 days to March 23, 2018. On March 21, 2018, the Company agreed with the Government that the term of the DPA be further extended for an additional 45 days to May 7, 2018. The purpose of the extension is to provide the Company and the Government additional time to discuss whether the Company is in compliance with the DPA.
There can be no assurance that the Company and the Government will continue to be able to negotiate a mutually satisfactory outcome during such 45-day period (or any further short-term extension of the DPA) or that such outcome will not include a further extension of the DPA, financial penalties or additional restrictions on the Company, including a monitorship period beyond the current monitorship that ends on April 30, 2018. Furthermore, there can be no assurance that the Government will not seek any other remedy, including criminal prosecution and financial penalties, in lieu of an extension of the DPA and monitorship.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
