Hudson Executive Provides Update on Proxy Solicitation for USA Technologies’ Annual Meeting

Hudson Executive Capital LP (Hudson Executive), a New York-based investment firm and the largest shareholder of USA Technologies, Inc. (USAT or the Company) (OTC:USAT) with beneficial ownership of approximately 16.3% of common stock, today announced that USAT shareholders representing 60.58% of the voting power, which includes the 10,385,172 common shares beneficially owned by Hudson Executive, have executed and delivered GOLD proxy cards voting FOR ALL of Hudson Executives eight candidates for election to the USAT Board of Directors.

This tabulation is based solely on the GOLD proxy cards received by Hudson Executives proxy solicitor, Innisfree M&A Incorporated, through the afternoon of January 15, 2020 and the number of the Companys common shares and Series A preferred shares outstanding as reported in the Companys Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2019. This tabulation also assumes that each Series A preferred share is entitled to 0.1988 of a vote on all matters presented at the annual meeting. This tabulation does not reflect the final results of the proxy solicitation. At any point at or prior to the Companys annual meeting on April 30, 2020, shareholders can change their vote, revoke their proxy or vote on the Companys white proxy card. In addition, the Company has not yet filed its proxy statement for the annual meeting, set a record date for the annual meeting or, to Hudson Executives knowledge, solicited shareholders on its white proxy card. As such, the final results of the proxy solicitation will not be known until the annual meeting is held. At this stage, no outcome of the annual meeting can be predicted and the tabulation will change.

Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP and Pepper Hamilton LLP are serving as legal advisors to Hudson Executive.
