Case study: Diginex merger with 8i Enterprises: Proven success in lasting relationships.

Diginex raised more than $20 million in a convertible note, upsized from an initial target of $15 million. Diginex and current management exchanged 100% of their holdings for shares of 8i Enterprises (Nasdaq: JFK).


Chardan crafted and supported key communication between investors and 8i Enterprises and Diginex throughout the SPAC M&A process. 8i Enterprises listed its IPO in March 2019. The merger was announced in July 2019 and closed in September 2020 with a transaction value of $317M. Pro-forma ownership: Diginex: 79%, JFK Public Shareholder: 9%, JFK Sponsors: 6%, Others: 6%.
