Item 1.02 Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.


As previously disclosed, on June 22, 2017, IDT Telecom, Inc. (“IDT Telecom”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of IDT Corporation (the “Registrant”) entered into a Share Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with JAR Fintech Limited (“Buyer”) and JAR Capital Limited (“JAR Capital”) to sell the capital stock of IDT Financial Services Holding Limited, a company incorporated under the laws of Gibraltar and wholly-owned subsidiary of IDT Telecom (“IDT Finance”), to the Buyer. IDT Finance is the sole shareholder of IDT Financial Services Limited, a Gibraltar-based bank and e-money issuer, providing prepaid card solutions across the European Economic Area.


The Agreement provided for an aggregate purchase price for the outstanding equity interests of IDT Finance of approximately £3 million plus an amount equal to the value of IDT Finance’s net assets (the “Purchase Price”), to be paid at closing, subject to adjustments relating to customer assets of IDT Finance. Subject to obtaining regulatory approval of the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission and the Gibraltar Minister with responsibility for financial services and other customary conditions set forth in the Agreement, the parties originally anticipated that the sale would close in 2017. With the requisite regulatory approval still pending, on October 25, 2018 the Buyer notified us that it considers the Agreement terminated by the effluxion of time.


All parties have indicated that they remain interested in consummating a transaction regarding the sale of IDT Finance and are working toward that goal while pursuing the required regulatory approvals. The parties are negotiating certain changes to the terms of the sale, although there are no assurances that the transaction will be consummated.






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.
