Item 1.02 Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

As previously disclosed, on April 6, 2020, Sino-Global Shipping America, Ltd., a Virginia corporation (the “Company”) entered into a Share Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Mr. Kelin Wu (“Wu”), an accredited and sophisticated investor based in the People’s Republic of China (the “Seller”) and Mandarine Ocean Ltd (“Mandarine”), a shipping company registered in the Marshall Islands, pursuant to which the Company agreed to purchase 75% of the equity of Mandarine from the Seller, and the Seller agreed to sell such 75% interest to the Company, for a purchase price of up to USD 3,750,000, payable in cash equivalent and/or restricted shares of common stock of the Company, no par value per share (“Common Stock”).

 

On June 17, 2020, the parties entered the First Amended and Restated Share Purchase Agreement (the “Amendment”), which was substantially similar to the Purchase Agreement other than a reduction in purchase price and related changes in the payment schedule. The new purchase price was to be up to USD 1,500,000, payable in cash equivalent and/or restricted shares of Common Stock.

 

On September 3, 2020, the Company and Mr. Wu signed a Termination Agreement to terminate the Amendment mutually. Neither party will owe the other party any termination penalty in connection with the Termination Agreement.

 

The Company and Mr. Wu confirm that the transfer of equity and issuance of stock contemplated in the Amendment have not occurred and no party has any obligation to transfer or to pay any amount to any other party under the Amendment.

 

As previously disclosed on April 27, 2020, the Company appointed Mr. Wu as the Company’s Chief Marketing Officer, effective May 1, 2020. The Company confirmed that Mr. Wu’s CMO position is terminated by mutual agreement as of September 3, 2020.
