DEREGISTRATION OF SECURITIES

 

This Post-Effective Amendment No. 2 (the “Post-Effective Amendment”) relates to the Form F-3 registration statement file no. 333-204083 (the “Registration Statement”) of Global Sources Ltd. (the “Registrant”), which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 12, 2015, as amended on June 2, 2015, and became effective on June 4, 2015.

 

The Registrant is filing this Post-Effective Amendment to the Registration Statement to withdraw and remove from registration the unsold securities previously registered under the Registration Statement by the selling shareholder as referred to in the Registration Statement.

 

On May 23, 2017, the Registrant, Expo Holdings I Ltd (“Parent”), an exempted company with limited liability incorporated under the laws of the Cayman Islands, and Expo Holdings II Ltd. (“Amalgamation Sub”), an exempted company incorporated under the laws of Bermuda as a company limited by shares, entered into an Agreement and Plan of Amalgamation (as amended on May 25, 2017 and as may be further amended from time to time, the “Amalgamation Agreement”). On July 24, 2017, at a special general meeting of the Registrant, the shareholders of the Registrant voted in favor of, among others, the Amalgamation Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby.

 

On August 28, 2017 (the “Effective Time”), pursuant to the Amalgamation Agreement, the Registrant and Amalgamation Sub were amalgamated with the amalgamated company continuing as a Bermuda exempted company limited by shares and becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent.

 

The Registrant hereby removes from registration, by means of this Post-Effective Amendment, any and all of the securities registered under the Registration Statement which remain unsold as of the Effective Time.
