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 Company’s previously-disclosed deferred prosecution agreement (“DPA”) be extended for 90 days to February 6, 2018. Also as previously disclosed, 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, and on May 7, 2018, the Company agreed with the Government that the term of the DPA be further extended for an additional 45 days to June 21, 2018, and on June 19, 2018, the Company agreed with the Government that the term of the DPA be further extended for an additional 90 days to September 18, 2018.
On September 14, 2018, the Company agreed with the Government that the term of the DPA be further extended for an additional 50 days to and including November 6, 2018. Any extension of the DPA extends all terms of the DPA, including the term of the monitorship for an equivalent period. The purpose of the extensions 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 the latest extension (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. 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.
