EXPLANATORY NOTE

This Post-Effective Amendment is being filed pursuant to Rule 414 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and constitutes Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 to the below-listed registration statements on Form S-8 (each, a “Terminating Registration Statement” and collectively, the “Terminating Registration Statements”):

 

   

Registration Statement No. 333-50274, filed with the Commission on November 20, 2000 (registering 1,000,000 shares of PSB-California (as defined below) common stock under the PS 401(k)/Profit Sharing Plan); and

 

   

Registration Statement No. 333-48313, filed with the Commission on March 20, 1998 (registering 1,500,000 shares of PSB-California (as defined below) common stock under the PS Business Parks, Inc. 1997 Stock Option and Incentive Plan).

On May 19, 2021, pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of May 17, 2021, PS Business Parks, Inc., a California corporation (“PSB-California”), merged with and into PS Business Parks Sub, Inc., a Maryland corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of PSB-California (“PSB-Maryland”), with PSB-Maryland continuing as the surviving corporation (the “Reincorporation”). Following the effectiveness of the Reincorporation, PSB-Maryland changed its name to “PS Business Parks, Inc.” The Reincorporation was approved by PSB-California’s common and preferred stockholders in connection with the 2021 Annual Meeting of Shareholders for which proxies were solicited pursuant to Section 14(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). PSB-California and PSB-Maryland, as issuer and successor issuer, pursuant to Rule 12g-3 of the Exchange Act, respectively, are collectively referred to herein as the “Registrant.”

These Post-Effective Amendments are being filed in order to deregister any securities registered that remain unsold or unissued under the Terminating Registration Statements, and to terminate the Terminating Registration Statements as to such securities. In accordance with an undertaking made by the Registrant in the Terminating Registration Statements to remove from registration, by means of a post-effective amendment, any of the securities which remain unsold at the termination of the offering, the Registrant hereby removes from registration all of the securities registered under the Registration Statements which remain unsold as of May 19, 2021.
