On April 30, 2022, the Registrant entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Multelements Limited (“Parent”) and Diversefuture Limited (“Merger Sub”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent. On August 12, 2022 (the “Effective Time”), pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub was merged with and into the Registrant (the “Merger”), with the Registrant being the surviving company of the Merger as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent. Upon completion of the Merger, the Registrant became a privately-held company.

 

As a result of the Merger, the Registrant has terminated all offerings of its securities pursuant to the Registration Statements. The Registrant hereby removes from registration, by means of this Post-Effective Amendment, any and all of the securities registered under the Registration Statements that remained unsold as of the Effective Time.
