DEREGISTRATION OF UNSOLD SECURITIES

This Post-Effective Amendment relates to Registration Statement No. 333-175235 on Form S-3ASR, registering the sale of shares of Common Stock, par value $0.01 (“Common Stock”) of VeriFone Systems, Inc. (the “Company”), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 30, 2011.

On August 20, 2018, Vertex Merger Sub LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Merger Sub”) and an indirect subsidiary of Vertex HoldCo LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Parent”), completed its merger (the “Merger”) with and into the Company, pursuant to the terms of the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of April 9, 2018 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among Parent, Merger Sub and the Company. The Company was the surviving corporation in the Merger and, as a result, is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent.
