The registrant is not registering additional securities. Registration fees were originally paid by CytoDyn Operations Inc. (formerly CytoDyn Inc.), the registrant’s predecessor-in-interest, upon the filing of the original registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-213866). Consequently, no additional registration fees are required in connection with the filing of this Post-Effective Amendment No. 1.

EXPLANATORY NOTE

As previously reported in the Form 8-K12G filed November 19, 2018, on November 16, 2018, CytoDyn Inc. (formerly Point NewCo Inc.), a Delaware corporation (“New CytoDyn” or the “Registrant”), CytoDyn Operations Inc. (formerly CytoDyn Inc.), a Delaware corporation (“Old CytoDyn”), ProstaGene, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“ProstaGene”) and Richard G. Pestell, M.D., Ph.D. consummated the purchase and sale of substantially all of the assets and rights, and the assumption of certain obligations and liabilities, associated with ProstaGene (the “ProstaGene Transaction”). The ProstaGene Transaction was consummated pursuant to the Transaction Agreement, dated as of August 27, 2018, among Old CytoDyn, New CytoDyn (then a wholly-owned subsidiary of Old CytoDyn), Point Merger Sub Inc., a Delaware corporation and then a wholly owned subsidiary of New CytoDyn, ProstaGene, and, solely with respect to certain provisions thereof, Dr. Pestell.

As part of the ProstaGene Transaction, on November 16, 2018, Old CytoDyn effected a holding company reorganization under Section 251(g) of the Delaware General Corporation Law (the “Holding Company Reorganization”), pursuant to which Merger Sub was merged with and into Old CytoDyn, with Old CytoDyn surviving as a wholly owned subsidiary of New CytoDyn. New CytoDyn changed its name from “Point NewCo Inc.” to “CytoDyn Inc.” and Old CytoDyn changed its name from “CytoDyn Inc.” to “CytoDyn Operations Inc.” In connection with the Holding Company Reorganization, all of the outstanding capital stock of the Company (including any convertible debt, warrants, options, or other rights to acquire the same) was converted automatically, on a share-for-share basis, into equivalent capital stock of New CytoDyn (and rights to acquire the same).

In accordance with Rule 414 of the Securities Act of 1933, as Amended (the “Securities Act”), New CytoDyn, as the successor issuer, expressly adopts that registration statement (as adopted by this Post-Effective Amendment, the “Registration Statement”) as its own for all purposes of the Securities Act and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). Registration fees were paid at the time of filing the original registration statement.

All of the securities to which the Registration Statement relates are the securities of New CytoDyn, as the successor issuer to Old CytoDyn, pursuant to the above.

Item 17.

Undertakings

The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes:

 

(1)

To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement:

 

  (a)

To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act of 1933,

 

  (b)

To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the registration statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than a 20 percent change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective registration statement,

 

  (c)

To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or any material change to such information in the registration statement.

Provided, however, that paragraphs (1)(a), (1)(b) and (1)(c) above do not apply if the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in periodic reports filed with or furnished to the Commission by the registrant pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 that are incorporated by reference in the registration statement, or is contained in a form of prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) that is part of the registration statement.

 

(2)

That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

 

(3)

To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.

 

(4)

That, for the purpose of determining liability under the Securities Act of 1933 to any purchaser:

 

  (a)

If the registrant is relying on Rule 430B:

 

  (i)

Each prospectus filed by the registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b)(3) shall be deemed to be part of the registration statement as of the date the filed prospectus was deemed part of and included in the registration statement; and

 

  (ii)

Each prospectus required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424(b)(2), (b)(5), or (b)(7) as part of a registration statement in reliance on Rule 430B relating to an offering made pursuant to Rule 415(a)(1)(i), (vii), or (x) for the purpose of providing the information required by section 10(a) of the Securities Act of 1933 shall be deemed to be part of and included in the registration statement as of the earlier of the date such form of prospectus is first used after effectiveness or the date of the first contract of sale of securities in the offering described in the prospectus. As provided in Rule 430B, for liability purposes of the issuer and any person that is at that date an underwriter, such date shall be deemed to be a new effective date of the registration statement relating to the securities in the registration statement to which that prospectus relates, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof. Provided, however, that no statement made in a registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement or made in a document incorporated or deemed incorporated by reference into the registration statement or


  prospectus that is part of the registration statement will, as to a purchaser with a time of contract of sale prior to such effective date, supersede or modify any statement that was made in the registration statement or prospectus that was part of the registration statement or made in any such document immediately prior to such effective date.

 

  (b)

If the registrant is subject to Rule 430C, each prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) as part of a registration statement relating to an offering, other than registration statements relying on Rule 430B or other than prospectuses filed in reliance on Rule 430A, shall be deemed to be a part of and included in the registration statement as of the date it is first used after effectiveness. Provided, however, that no statement made in a registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement or made in a document incorporated or deemed incorporated by reference into the registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement will, as to a purchaser with a time of contract of sale prior to such first use, supersede or modify any statement that was made in the registration statement or prospectus that was part of the registration statement or made in any such document immediately prior to such date of first use.

 

(5)

That, for the purpose of determining liability of the registrant under the Securities Act of 1933 to any purchaser in the initial distribution of the securities, the registrant undertakes that in a primary offering of securities of the registrant pursuant to this registration statement, regardless of the underwriting method used to sell the securities to the purchaser, if the securities are offered or sold to such purchaser by means of any of the following communications, the registrant will be a seller to the purchaser and will be considered to offer or sell such securities to such purchaser:

 

  (a)

Any preliminary prospectus or prospectus of the registrant relating to the offering required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424;

 

  (b)

Any free writing prospectus relating to the offering prepared by or on behalf of the registrant or used or referred to by the registrant;

 

  (c)

The portion of any other free writing prospectus relating to the offering containing material information about registrant or its securities provided by or on behalf of the registrant; and

 

  (d)

Any other communication that is an offer in the offering made by an registrant to the purchaser.

 

(6)

That, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each filing of the registrant’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan’s annual report pursuant to Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) that is incorporated by reference in the registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

 

(7)

In connection with offerings of securities to existing security holders pursuant to warrant or rights where any securities not taken by security holders are to be reoffered to the public, to supplement the prospectus, after the expiration of the subscription period for a warrant or rights offering, to set forth the results of the subscription offer, the transactions by the underwriters during the subscription period, the amount of unsubscribed securities to be purchased by the underwriters, and the terms of any subsequent reoffering thereof. If any public offering by the underwriters is to be made on terms differing from those set forth on the cover page of the prospectus, a post-effective amendment will be filed to set forth the terms of such offering.

 

(8)

In connection with offerings of securities at competitive bids: (a) to use its best efforts to distribute prior to the opening of bids, to prospective bidders, underwriters, and dealers, a reasonable number of copies of a prospectus which at that time meets the requirements of Section 10(a) of the Act, and relating to the securities offered at competitive bidding, as contained in the registration statement, together with any supplements thereto, and (b) to file an amendment to the registration statement reflecting the results of bidding, the terms of the reoffering and related matters to the extent required by the applicable form, not later than the first use, authorized by the issuer after the opening of bids, of a prospectus relating to the securities offered at competitive bidding, unless no further public offering of such securities by the issuer and no reoffering of such securities by the purchasers is proposed to be made.


(9)

Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrant pursuant to the forgoing provisions, or otherwise, the registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.


SIGNATURES

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, the registrant certifies that it has reasonable grounds to believe that it meets all of the requirements for filing on Form S-3 and has duly caused this Post Effective Amendment No. 1 to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized, in the City of Vancouver, State of Washington, on November 19, 2018.
