DEREGISTRATION OF SECURITIES

 

Gridsum Holding Inc. (the “Registrant”) is filing this post-effective amendment (“Post-Effective Amendment”) to the following registration statements on Form S-8 (collectively, the “Registration Statements”) to deregister all unsold securities originally registered by the Registrant pursuant to its (i) Registration Statement No. 333-216798, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on March 17, 2017, with respect to a total of 5,560,953 Class B ordinary shares of the Registrant, par value US$0.001 per share (the “Class B Ordinary Shares”), thereby registered for offer or sale pursuant to Registrant’s Stock Option Plan and Equity Incentive Plan; and (ii) Registration Statement No. 333-229318, filed with the Commission on January 22, 2019, with respect to a total of 1,314,257 Class B Ordinary Shares, thereby registered for offer or sale pursuant to Registrant’s Equity Incentive Plan.

 

On September 30, 2020, the Registrant entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Gridsum Corporation (“Parent”), and Gridsum Growth Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub”). On March 25, 2021 (the “Effective Time”), pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub was merged with and into the Registrant (the “Merger”), with the Registrant continuing as the surviving company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent. Upon completion of the Merger, the Registrant became a privately-held company.

 

As a result of the Merger, the Registrant has terminated all offerings of its securities pursuant to the Registration Statements. The Registrant hereby removes from registration, by means of this Post-Effective Amendment, any and all of the securities registered under the Registration Statements that remained unsold as of the Effective Time.
