Item 8.01 Other Events.
As previously reported by Vinco Ventures, Inc. (the “Company”) in its Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on May 28, 2021, the Company, Vinco Acquisition Corporation and ZASH Global Media and Entertainment Corporation (“ZASH”) (together, the “Parties”) entered into that certain Second Amendment to the Agreement (the “Second Amendment”) to define certain milestones with dates to be completed to consummate the closing of the Lomotif Private Limited (“Lomotif”) acquisition and the ZASH merger; (i) the Company and ZASH intend to acquire Lomotif through their joint venture, ZVV Media Partners, LLC (the “Joint Venture”); (ii) the Parties have completed an Amended and Restated Limited Liability Company Agreement for the Joint Venture in preparation for the anticipated acquisition of Lomotif through the Joint Venture; (iii) Gemini Valuation Services agreed to complete and present an independent third-party valuation on ZASH on or before June 11, 2021; (iv) sign the final Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization on or before June 24, 2021; (v) issue a formal proxy to shareholders for the approval of the ZASH merger with the Company on or before July 15, 2021; and (vi) extend the closing date to August 31, 2021, but no later than the first business day following the satisfaction or waiver of all conditions to the obligations of the Parties to consummate the transaction.
On June 24, 2021, the Company announced in a press release the “spin-out” of Emmersive Entertainment, LLC to become a standalone publicly traded entity (the “Emmersive Transaction”). The Company currently plans to conduct the Emmersive Transaction during the third quarter of the year ending 2021 and intends to announce to the shareholders of the record effective date, providing eventually all shareholders of the Company an equity position in the “spun-out” public company.
The Company also announced in the June 24, 2021 press release that the “spun-out” public company will be led by the Company’s current Chief Strategy Officer Brian McFadden.
The announcement of the Emmersive Transaction has contributed to the delay of the closing of the Lomotif transaction by what the Company currently believes will be approximately 15 business days. The Company and all parties involved in the Lomotif transaction will continue to update the shareholders of the Company as to the timing of the anticipated shareholder proxy in connection with the Emmersive Transaction.
A copy of the press release is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this report and is incorporated herein by reference.

|99.1||Press Release of the Company dated June 24, 2021|
