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).

This Post-Effective Amendment is being filed pursuant to Rule 414 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), to reflect the adoption by New CytoDyn of the registration statement, File No. 333-206813, filed by Old CytoDyn with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on September 8, 2015. That registration statement covers (i) 2,581,088 shares of common stock issuable pursuant to awards under the CytoDyn Inc. 2004 Stock Incentive Plan, and (ii) an aggregate of 5,000,000 shares of common stock issuable pursuant to awards under the CytoDyn Inc. 2012 Equity Incentive Plan, as amended.

In accordance with Rule 414, 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 4. DESCRIPTION OF SECURITIES

ITEM 5. INTERESTS OF NAMED EXPERTS AND COUNSEL

Not applicable.

ITEM 6. INDEMNIFICATION OF DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS

The registrant is a Delaware corporation subject to the applicable indemnification provisions of the Delaware law, including the Delaware General Corporation Law (the “DGCL”). Section 145 of the DGCL authorizes a corporation to indemnify its directors, officers, employees and agents against expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement reasonably incurred, provided they act in good faith and in a manner reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, and, with respect to any criminal proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe their conduct was unlawful, although in the case of proceedings brought by or on behalf of the corporation, such indemnification is limited to expenses and is not permitted if the individual is adjudged liable to the corporation (unless the Delaware Court of Chancery or the court in which such proceeding was brought determines otherwise in accordance with the DGCL).


Section 102 of the DGCL authorizes a corporation to limit or eliminate its directors’ liability to the corporation or its stockholders for monetary damages for breaches of fiduciary duties, other than for (1) breaches of the duty of loyalty, (2) acts or omissions not in good faith or that involve intentional misconduct or knowing violations of law, (3) unlawful payments of dividends, stock purchases or redemptions or (4) transactions from which a director derives an improper personal benefit.

The registrant’s certificate of incorporation and by-laws contains provisions protecting its directors and officers to the fullest extent permitted by Sections 102 and 145 of the DGCL.

Section 145 of the DGCL also authorizes a corporation to purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any person who is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation against certain liabilities asserted against and incurred by such person in any such capacity, or arising out of such person’s status as such. The registrant maintains liability insurance covering its directors and officers for claims asserted against them or incurred by them in such capacity.

The registrant has entered into agreements to indemnify its directors and officers to the maximum extent allowed under Delaware law. These agreements, among other things, indemnify the registrant’s directors and officers for certain expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and settlement amounts reasonably incurred by such person in any action or proceeding, including any action by or in the registrant’s right, on account of any services undertaken by such person on behalf of the registrant or that person’s status as a member of the registrant’s board or directors.

The registrant also maintains insurance policies that indemnify its directors and officers against various liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and the Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, that might be incurred by any director or officer in his capacity as such.

The foregoing is only a general summary of certain aspects of Delaware law and the registrant’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation and amended and restated bylaws dealing with indemnification of directors and officers, and does not purport to be complete. It is qualified in its entirety by reference to the detailed provisions of Sections 145 and 102(b) of the DGCL and the registrant’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation and amended and restated bylaws.

ITEM 9. UNDERTAKINGS

(a) 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:

(i) To include any prospectus required by section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act of 1933;

(ii) 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% change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective registration statement.

(iii) 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 (a)(1)(i) and (a)(1)(ii) of this section do not apply if the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in 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 (15 U.S.C 78m or 78o(d)) that are incorporated by reference in 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 herein, 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 of the registrant under the Securities Act to any purchaser in the initial distribution of the securities, the undersigned registrant undertakes that in a primary offering of securities of the undersigned 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 undersigned registrant will be a seller to the purchaser and will be considered to offer or sell such securities to such purchaser:

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

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

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

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

(b) The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes 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 section 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 herein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

(c) 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 foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the 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.
