|Item 7.01.||Regulation FD Disclosure.|
On August 1, 2017, IEG Holdings Corporation (“IEG Holdings”) issued a press release announcing that it had made the determination that it would terminate the offer (the “Offer”) by IEG Holdings to exchange four shares of IEG Holdings’ common stock, par value $0.001 per share, for each share of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of LendingClub Corporation (“LendingClub”), up to an aggregate of 40,345,603 shares of LendingClub common stock, representing approximately 9.99% of LendingClub’s outstanding shares as of April 28, 2017, validly tendered and not properly withdrawn in the Offer. IEG Holdings filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) a Registration Statement on Form S-4 dated July 12, 2017, relating to the offer and sale of shares of IEG common stock that were to be issued to holders of LendingClub shares in the Offer (the “Registration Statement”), and a Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO, originally filed with the SEC on July 12, 2017 (as amended thereafter, the “Schedule TO”).
Following the launch of the Offer, IEG Holdings’ per share stock price, as quoted on the OTCQB, dropped significantly. On August 1, 2017, due to the stock price drop, IEG Holdings determined that the Offer no longer had a reasonable chance of success and accordingly, IEG Holdings determined that it would terminate the Offer and withdraw the Registration Statement. Furthermore, IEG Holdings has no intention of launching the Offer or another tender offer in the near future. The Registration Statement was withdrawn on August 1, 2017. Any shares that have been tendered by LendingClub stockholders have not yet been accepted and will be returned to the relevant stockholders.
A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference. The information contained in the website is not a part of this current report on Form 8-K.
