DEREGISTRATION OF CERTAIN SECURITIES

This Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 (this “Amendment”) relates to the Registration Statement on Form S-8 filed by Associated Banc-Corp (the “Registrant”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 20, 2018 (Registration No. 333-223099) (the “Form S-8”) to register, among others, 564,174 shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of the Registrant in connection with the Bank Mutual Corporation 401(k) Plan (the “Bank Mutual 401(k) Plan”).  The Bank Mutual 401(k) Plan was assumed by the Registrant in connection with the Registrant’s acquisition of Bank Mutual Corporation, which was completed on February 1, 2018.


Effective April 20, 2018, the Bank Mutual 401(k) Plan was merged with and into the Associated Banc-Corp 401(k) & Employee Stock Ownership Plan.  In accordance with undertakings made by the Registration in the Form S-8 to remove from registration, by means of a post-effective amendment, any of the securities that had been registered for issuance that remain unsold at the termination of the offering, the Registrant is filing this Amendment to deregister, and does hereby remove from registration, all such securities of the Registrant registered in connection with the Bank Mutual 401(k) Plan but unsold under the Form S-8 as of the date hereof.


This Amendment relates only to the securities described herein, and shall have no effect on the Form S-8 as it relates to the securities registered in connection with any of the other equity incentive plans named therein.
