Future FinTech Responds to Inquiry of CEO

NEW YORK, Jan. 16, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Future Fintech Group Inc. (NASDAQ: FTFT), (hereinafter referred to as “Future FinTech”, “FTFT” or the “Company”), a comprehensive financial and digital technology service provider, announced today its Board of Directors (the “Board”) held a meeting on January 15, 2024 to respond to allegations made to its Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The Board agreed to establish an independent committee to review and investigate the allegations made by SEC. The Board also imposed restrictions on the CEO to trade in the Company’s stock during the pendency of the litigation. In addition, the Board decided to provide training to Company officers, directors and employees as to appropriate trading practices under the insider trading policy of the Company.

As background, on January 11, 2024, the SEC filed a civil lawsuit alleging civil violations of the federal securities laws against Mr. Shanchun Huang, the Company’s CEO throughout the period at issue in the Complaint, for manipulative trading in the Company’s stock shortly before he became its CEO in 2020. The SEC also charged Mr. Hung with failing to disclose his beneficial ownership of the Company stock as well as transactions in such stock. Mr. Huang, through his attorney, Jacob Frenkel, Chair of the Securities Enforcement and Government Investigations Practice at the law firm, Dickinson Wright, PLLC, has responded to these allegations and has asserted Mr. Huang’s innocence.

The Board asserted that the civil litigation against the CEO has had no impact upon the Company’s operations and it does not anticipate that it will in the future. The Board indicated that it values its shareholders and will continue to communicate with the investment community as relevant information related to this event becomes available.
