Item 8.01.
Other Events.

The Board of Directors of USA Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) has established April 26, 2018 as the date of the Company’s 2018 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the “2018 Annual Meeting”). The Board of Directors has fixed the close of business on February 28, 2018 as the record date for the determination of shareholders entitled to notice of, and to vote at, the 2018 Annual Meeting. The exact time and location of the 2018 Annual Meeting will be specified in the Company’s proxy statement for the 2018 Annual Meeting.

Because the date of the 2018 Annual Meeting has been changed by more than 30 days from the first anniversary of the 2017 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, the deadlines for shareholder proposals and director nominations for consideration at the 2018 Annual Meeting set forth in the Company’s definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on May 3, 2017 no longer apply.

As a result, shareholders of the Company who wish to have a proposal considered for inclusion in the Company’s proxy materials for the 2018 Annual Meeting pursuant to Rule 14a-8 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (“Rule 14a-8”), must ensure that such proposal is received at the Company’s principal executive offices by no later than February 13, 2018, which the Company has determined to be a reasonable time before it  begins to print and send its proxy materials.

In addition, the Company’s Amended and Restated Bylaws (the “Bylaws”) provide that in order to be properly brought before the 2018 Annual Meeting, a shareholder’s notice of nomination of directors or other business (other than a matter brought pursuant to Rule 14a-8), must be received by the Secretary of the Company at our principal executive offices not later than the close of business on February 25, 2018, which is the 60 th day prior to the date of the 2018 Annual Meeting.
