Item 5.07Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

As previously disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) by FTAC Olympus Acquisition Corporation, a Cayman Islands exempted company (“FTOC”), on February 3, 2021, FTOC, New Starship Parent Inc., a Delaware corporation (“New Starship”), Starship Merger Sub I Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of New Starship (“First Merger Sub”), Starship Merger Sub II Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of New Starship (“Second Merger Sub”), and Payoneer Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Payoneer” or the “Company”, and collectively with FTOC, New Starship, First Merger Sub and Second Merger Sub, the “Parties”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Reorganization (as amended on February 16, 2021, May 10, 2021 and June 22, 2021 the “Reorganization Agreement”) providing for a business combination involving FTOC and Payoneer. (the “Reorganization”).


On June 23, 2021, FTOC held an extraordinary general meeting of stockholders (the “Special Meeting”) via remote communication to vote on the following proposals: (1) a proposal to approve the Reorganization and adopt the Reorganization Agreement (the “Reorganization Proposal”); (2) a proposal to approve by special resolution FTOC being transferred by way of continuation to Delaware pursuant to Part XII of the Companies Law (as amended) of the Cayman Islands and Section 388 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (“DGCL”) and, immediately upon being de-registered in the Cayman Islands, FTOC being continued and domesticated as a corporation under the laws of the State of Delaware (the “Domestication Proposal ”), (3) a proposal to approve the material differences between the amended and restated certificate of incorporation of New Starship to be in effect following the Reorganization and FTOC’s current amended and restated memorandum and articles of association (the “Charter Proposal”), (4) a proposal to approve the 2021 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the “Incentive Plan”). The Incentive Plan incorporates corporate governance best practices to align our equity compensation program with the interests of our shareholders (the “Incentive Plan Proposal”), (5) a proposal to approve the New Starship 2021 Employee Stock Purchase Plan (the “ESPP”). In designing the ESPP, the anticipated future equity needs were considered, and a total of 7,603,202 shares of common stock will be reserved for issuance under the ESPP. Our board of directors has approved the ESPP, subject to receiving shareholder approval (the “ESPP Proposal”) and (6) a proposal to approve the adjournment of the Special Meeting to a later date or dates, if necessary, to permit further solicitation and vote of proxies if, based upon the tabulated vote at the time of the Special Meeting, any of the condition precedent proposals would not be duly approved and adopted by our shareholders or we determine that one or more of the closing conditions under the Reorganization Agreement is not satisfied or waived (the “Adjournment Proposal”).


The Adjournment Proposal was not presented at the Special Meeting because there were enough votes to approve the Reorganization Proposal, the Domestication Proposal, the Charter Proposal, the Incentive Plan Proposal and the ESPP Proposal.



Set forth below are the final voting results for each of the matters submitted to a vote of the stockholders of FTOC at the Special Meeting.
