DEREGISTRATION OF SHARES
Effective as of January 24, 2012 (subject to shareholder approval which was received on May 16, 2012), The McClatchy Company, a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), adopted The McClatchy 2012 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the “2012 Incentive Plan”), which replaces the Company’s 2004 Stock Incentive Plan, the Company’s Long-Term Incentive Plan (the “L-TIP”) and the Company’s Chief Executive Officer Bonus Plan (the “CEO Bonus Plan”). The 2004 Stock Incentive Plan was frozen and no additional awards will be made thereunder, and the L-TIP and the CEO Bonus Plan were terminated and no additional awards will be made thereunder. On May 4, 2012, the Company filed a Registration Statement on Form S-8 (333-181167) to register the maximum number of shares of Class A common stock, $.01 par value, of the Company (the “Common Stock”) available for issuance pursuant to the 2012 Incentive Plan (subject to adjustment by reason of certain events specified in the 2012 Incentive Plan), which consists of the sum of (a) 5,000,000 shares of Common Stock initially authorized for issuance pursuant to the 2012 Incentive Plan plus (b) 552,000 shares of Common Stock available for future awards but not subject to outstanding awards under the 2004 Stock Incentive Plan as of May 16, 2012 plus (c) 7,056,000 shares of Common Stock subject to outstanding awards under the 2004 Stock Incentive Plan as of May 16, 2012 which thereafter terminate by expiration, forfeiture, cancellation or otherwise without the issuance of such shares of Common Stock.
By means of this Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 to the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-8 (333-151399) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 3, 2008 (the “2008 Registration Statement”) and the Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 to the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-8 (333-117850) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 2, 2004 (the “2004 Registration Statement”) to be filed contemporaneously with this filing, the Company hereby deregisters 7,608,000 shares previously registered under the 2004 Stock Incentive Plan under the 2008 Registration Statement and 2004 Registration Statement.
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 Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized, in the City of Sacramento, California, on this 27th day of September 2012.
