Item 7.01

Regulation FD Disclosure.

In connection with the business combination described below, UMB Financial Corporation (the “Company”) expects to realize as of closing a gain of approximately $42 million from an initial investment of $7 million relating to the ownership interest in one of the parties to the business combination held by UMB Capital Corporation (“UMB Capital”), which is a subsidiary of UMB Bank, n.a., and indirect subsidiary of the Company.

On October 15, 2020, Forum Merger II Corporation, a Nasdaq-listed blank check company, held a special meeting of its shareholders at which meeting the shareholders approved, among other things, its previously announced business combination transaction (the “Business Combination”) with Myjojo, Inc. (“Myjojo”) and name change to Tattooed Chef, Inc. (“Tattooed Chef”). The Business Combination was consummated immediately after Tattooed Chef obtained such shareholder approval. As a result of UMB Capital’s ownership interest in Ittella International, LLC, which was previously a majority-owned subsidiary of Myjojo, it received approximately $9 million in cash and approximately 4.05 million shares of common stock of Tattooed Chef (the “Stock Consideration”) at the closing. In addition, if the Tattooed Chef common stock achieves certain trading milestones during the three years following the closing, UMB Capital could receive up to an estimated 625,000 additional shares of Tattooed Chef. As of the closing, UMB Capital owns approximately 7% of Tattooed Chef, Inc. on a fully diluted basis.

The Stock Consideration is subject to certain “lock-up” restrictions pursuant to which UMB Capital will be restricted from selling the Stock Consideration until 180 days after closing (the “Lock-Up Period”). For so long as the Company holds the Stock Consideration, the value of the Stock Consideration will be subject to significant volatility, which will be directly reflected in the Company’s earnings based on market values of the Stock Consideration at the end of each reporting period. The Stock Consideration is also subject to the risk factors discussed in Tattooed Chef’s filings with the Commission; provided that the Company is not incorporating by reference such filings, nor does the Company take responsibility for the accuracy of such filings. UMB Capital has contractual rights to cause the Stock Consideration to be registered for resale, subject to certain limitations and requirements. Following the Lock-up Period, UMB Capital expects to be able to sell the Stock Consideration if and as it determines appropriate.

The Company issued a press release regarding its investment in Tattooed Chef, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 99.1.

The information provided under Item 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1, is being furnished and is not deemed to be “filed” with the Commission for the purposes of Section 18 of the Exchange Act, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section and is not incorporated by reference into any filing of the Company under the Securities Act or the Exchange Act, whether made before or after the date hereof, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference to this Current Report on Form 8-K in such a filing.
