DEREGISTRATION OF SECURITIES
These Post-Effective Amendments relate to the following Registration Statements on Form S-3 (collectively, the “Registration Statements”), filed by Alon USA Energy, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Alon”), with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”):
Registration Statement on Form S-3 (No. 333-171111), originally filed with the SEC on December 10, 2010, pertaining to the registration of the offer and sale from time to time up to $23,500,000 of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of Alon (“Alon Common Stock”);
Registration Statement on Form S-3 (No. 333-177772), originally filed with the SEC on November 7, 2011, pertaining to the registration of the offer and resale from time to time of up to 3,092,783 shares of Alon Common Stock underlying warrants exercisable by the selling stockholders named therein;
Registration Statement on Form S-3 (No. 333-178070), originally filed with the SEC on November 18, 2011, pertaining to the registration of the offer and resale from time to time of up to 377,710 shares of Alon Common Stock by the selling stockholder named therein;
Registration Statement on Form S-3 (No. 333-182673), originally filed with the SEC on July 13, 2012, pertaining to the registration of the offer and resale from time to time of up to 2,908,645 shares of Alon Common Stock by the selling stockholders named therein; and
Registration Statement on Form S-3 (No. 333-182675), originally filed with the SEC on July 16, 2012, pertaining the registration of the offer and resale from time to time of up to 6,514,684 shares of Alon Common Stock underlying Alon’s 8.5% Series B Convertible Preferred Stock by the selling stockholders named therein.
On January 2, 2017, Alon entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger with Delek US Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Delek”), Delek Holdco, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of Delek (“Holdco”), Dione Mergeco, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of Holdco (“Delek Merger Sub”), and Astro Mergeco, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of Holdco (“Astro Merger Sub”), as amended by the First Amendment to Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of February 27, 2017, and the Second Amendment to Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of April 21, 2017 (collectively, the “Merger Agreement”). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Certificates of Amendment and Certificates of Merger filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on June 30, 2017, (i) Delek was renamed “Delek US Energy, Inc.” and Holdco was renamed “Delek US Holdings, Inc.”; (ii) Delek Merger Sub merged with and into Delek (the “Delek Merger”), with Delek surviving as a wholly owned subsidiary of Holdco; and (iii) Astro Merger Sub merged with and into Alon (the “Alon Merger” and together with the Delek Merger, the “Mergers”), with Alon surviving as a direct and indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Holdco. The Mergers were effective as of July 1, 2017.
As a result of the Mergers, Alon has terminated any and all offerings of Alon’s securities pursuant to its existing registration statements under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, including the Registration Statements. In accordance with the undertakings made by Alon in the Registration Statements to remove from registration, by means of a post-effective amendment, any of the securities that had been registered for issuance but unsold at the termination of the offering, Alon hereby removes all of such securities of Alon registered but unsold under any of the Registration Statements, if any. Each Registration Statement is hereby amended, as appropriate, to reflect the deregistration of such securities. In that regard, and for the avoidance of doubt, any selling stockholders of Alon under the Registration Statements no longer own any shares of Alon Common Stock as a result of the Mergers.
