EZTD Inc. Announces Settlement with the SEC

EZTD Inc. (OTCQX:EZTD) today announced that it has reached a settlement with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission resolving its investigation into EZTD's sale of binary options in the United States between 2011 and 2014. The SEC’s investigation concerned historical business operations. EZTD closed its platform to new U.S. customers in January 2014, and the platform was completely closed to U.S. customers before the end of the third quarter of 2014. Accordingly, the SEC's investigation did not relate to EZTD's current business operations.

As part of the settlement, EZTD agreed to pay a $200,000 fine and to pay $1,515,858 in disgorgement reflecting revenues earned during the period in which EZTD operated its binary option platform in the United States. EZTD previously reserved for these amounts in its financial statements.

The SEC's investigation concerned whether binary options sold by EZTD to customers in the United States during the period between 2011 and 2014 were securities under the securities laws of the United States.

In the United States, binary options are currently traded on Nadex and the Cantor Exchange both of which have been approved by the United States Commodity Futures Trading Commission as a Designated Contracts Market.

Shimon Citron, Chief Executive Officer of EZTD, commented on the resolution with the SEC saying, "We are glad to amicably resolve these issues with the SEC regarding our historical business operations. The Board of EZTD continues to work on creating value for its shareholders."

Mr. Citron further added, "Although our business continues to focus on Europe and Japan, we would very much like to expand to the United States using approved regulatory pathways."
