PHOENIX, May 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Renren Inc. (NYSE: RENN) (“Renren” or the “Company“), a SaaS company, today announced that it has entered into an Amendment (the “Stipulation Amendment”) to the Stipulation of Settlement reached on October 7, 2021 (the “Initial Stipulation,” together with the Stipulation Amendment, the “Stipulation“). Capitalized but undefined terms used herein shall have the same meanings ascribed to them in Exhibit 99.1 of the Form 6-K furnished by the Company to the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 8, 2021.
The Court declined to approve the Initial Stipulation by order dated December 10, 2021, raising concerns about (i) certain objections raised as to the recipients of the settlement funds, (ii) the amount of requested attorneys’ fees, and (iii) the reversion to Renren of any remaining settlement funds. On May 27, 2022, Plaintiffs and Defendants, after additional negotiations, reached an agreement on certain modifications to the Initial Stipulation, including the definitions of “Final,” “Settlement Amount” and “True Up,” as well as a modification to the reversion provision, which provides for the distribution of remaining settlement funds. Plaintiffs and Defendants entered into the Stipulation Amendment with the purpose of reaching a new overall settlement of the entire Action (the “Settlement“).
As the Settlement remains subject to approval by the Court and the fulfillment of other conditions set forth in the Stipulation, which involve inherent risks and substantial uncertainties, there is no guarantee that the Settlement will be consummated as contemplated under the Stipulation or at all.
The foregoing summary of the Stipulation Amendment is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of that document, which will be filed as an exhibit to the Form 6-K that the Company intends to promptly furnish to the Securities and Exchange Commission thereafter, attaching this press release as an exhibit thereto.
