Introductory Note.


As previously announced, FinTech Acquisition Corp. V, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of March 16, 2021 (the “Original Merger Agreement”), with eToro Group Ltd., a company organized under the laws of the British Virgin Islands (“eToro”), and Buttonwood Merger Sub Corp., a Delaware corporation and a direct, wholly owned subsidiary of eToro, which agreement was amended on December 30, 2021 (the “Merger Agreement Amendment” and together with the Original Merger Agreement, the “Merger Agreement”). Capitalized terms used but not defined herein have the respective meanings given to such terms in the Merger Agreement.


Item 1.02. Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.


On July 1, 2022, the Company and eToro entered into a Termination Agreement (the “Termination Agreement”) pursuant to which the parties agreed to mutually terminate the Merger Agreement, effective immediately (the “Termination”). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, the proposed merger was conditioned on the satisfaction of certain closing conditions, including relating to eToro’s registration statement, within the timeframe outlined by the Original Merger Agreement and as extended by the Merger Agreement Amendment. Despite the parties’ best efforts, such conditions were not satisfied within such time frame and the parties were unable to complete the transaction by the June 30, 2022 deadline.


As a result of the Termination, the Merger Agreement will be of no further force and effect, and certain transaction agreements entered into in connection with the Merger Agreement, including, but not limited to, the Lock-Up Agreements, the Sponsor Agreement, the Sponsor Commitment Letter and the Voting Agreements, will automatically either terminate in accordance with their terms or be of no further force and effect. Neither party will be required to pay the other any fees or expenses as a result of the Termination. The Company and eToro have also agreed, on behalf of themselves and their respective related parties, to a release of claims relating to the transactions contemplated under the Merger Agreement.


The foregoing description of the Termination and the Termination Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the terms and conditions of the full text of the Original Merger Agreement, which was previously filed by the Company as Exhibit 2.1 to its Current Report on Form 8-K with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 16, 2021, as amended by the Merger Agreement Amendment, which was previously filed by the Company as Exhibit 2.1 to its Current Report on Form 8-K with the SEC on December 30, 2021, and the Termination Agreement, which is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1, each of which is incorporated by reference herein.


Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.


On July 5, 2022, the Company and eToro issued a joint press release announcing the Termination. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and incorporated by reference herein.


The information in this Item 7.01 (including Exhibit 99.1) is being furnished and shall not be deemed to be filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise be subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed to be incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended or the Exchange Act.


Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.
