DEREGISTRATION OF SECURITIES
NOW Inc. (the Registrant) is filing this Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 to the Registration Statement on Form S-8 to deregister certain shares of the Registrants common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the Common Stock), and plan interests pursuant to the NOW Inc. 401(k) and Retirement Savings Plan (the Savings Plan) that were previously registered by the Registrant pursuant to its Registration Statement on Form S-8 (File No. 333-196529) initially filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 5, 2014.
As of July 24, 2020, the Registrant froze the Registrants stock fund under the Savings Plan. Accordingly, the Registrant is no longer issuing securities under the Savings Plan and no further investments in the Registrants securities may be made under the Savings Plan. Pursuant to the undertaking contained in the Registration Statement to remove from registration, by means of a post-effective amendment, any of the securities registered that remain unissued at the termination of the offering, the Registrant is filing this post-effective amendment to the Registration Statement to deregister, and does hereby remove from registration, any shares of Common Stock and any plan interests in the Savings Plan registered but that remain unissued under the Registration Statement as of the date hereof. Although the Common Stock and related plan interests under the Savings Plan are being deregistered, this Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 shall not serve to reduce the number of shares of Common Stock registered under the Form S-8 or the number of shares of Common Stock subject to issuance pursuant to the Form S-8 under the other plan that was listed therein.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, the Registrant certifies that it has reasonable grounds to believe that it meets all of the requirements for filing on Form S-8 and has duly caused this Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 on Form S-8 to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized, in the City of Houston, State of Texas on May 26, 2022.
