Item 8.01. Other Events




Oportun Financial Corporation (the "Company") entered into a confidential Settlement Agreement dated December 9, 2021 (the "Settlement Agreement") to resolve the previously disclosed lawsuit captioned Opportune LLP v. Oportun, Inc. and Oportun, LLC, Civil Action No. 4:18-cv-00007, before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board . The lawsuit is described in Item 1. "Legal Proceedings" in Part II of the Company's Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2021 (filed November 4, 2021). Pursuant to the Settlement Agreement, the Company will pay $8.5 million to the plaintiffs and the parties agreed to promptly cause the filing of a motion and order to dismiss the lawsuit with prejudice shortly after execution of the Settlement Agreement. While the Company believes all claims in this lawsuit were without merit, the Company wanted to avoid the costs and management distraction of litigation.
