EXPLANATORY NOTE

On February 27, 2013, CytoDyn Inc. (the “Company”) filed a Registration Statement on Form S- 8 (File No. 333-186920) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) to register 3,000,000 shares of its common stock, no par value per share (the “Original Registration Statement”) to be issued under the CytoDyn Inc. 2012 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2012 Plan”).

On February 27, 2015 the Company’s stockholders approved an increase in the number of shares of Common Stock available under the 2012 Plan from 3,000,000 to 5,000,000.

On September 8, 2015, the Company filed a Post-Effective Amendment to the Original Registration Statement to deregister the shares registered thereunder that remained unsold in connection with the Company’s reincorporation into the State of Delaware, and simultaneously filed a new, currently effective Registration Statement on Form S-8 (File No. 333-206813) to register 5,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (“Common Stock”), to be issued pursuant to the 2012 Plan (the “Second Registration Statement”).

On March 18, 2016, the Company’s stockholders approved an increase in the number of shares of Common Stock available under the 2012 Plan from 5,000,000 to 7,000,000. On August 24, 2017, the Company’s stockholders approved another amendment to the 2012 Plan to increase the number of shares of Common Stock available from 7,000,000 to 15,000,000.

On March 23, 2018, the Company filed a new Registration Statement on Form S-8 (File No. 333- 223884) to register 10,000,000 additional shares of Common Stock to be issued pursuant to the 2012 Plan (the “Third Registration Statement”).

Effective November 16, 2018, the Company implemented a holding company reorganization, as a result of which, the Company became the successor issuer and reporting company to the former CytoDyn Inc. (now the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, CytoDyn Operations Inc.). On November 20, 2018, the Company simultaneously filed Post-Effective Amendments to the Second Registration Statement and to the Third Registration Statement to adopt, as a successor issuer, the Second Registration Statement and the Third Registration Statement.

On May 22, 2019, the Company’s stockholders approved an increase in the number of shares of Common Stock available under the 2012 Plan from 15,000,000 to 25,000,000.

The Company is filing this current Registration Statement on Form S-8 (the “New Registration Statement”) for the purpose of registering an additional 10,000,000 shares of Common Stock, par value $0.001 per share, to be issued under the 2012 Plan, as amended, pursuant to General Instruction E on Form S-8 (Registration of Additional Securities). Following the filing of the New Registration Statement, there will be an aggregate of 25,000,000 shares of Common Stock registered to be issued under the 2012 Plan.

Pursuant to General Instruction E of Form S-8, the contents of the Second Registration Statement (File No. 333-206813) and the Third Registration Statement (File No. 333-223884) are hereby incorporated by reference and made a part hereof.
