DEREGISTRATION OF UNSOLD SECURITIES
On September 16, 2009, China Security & Surveillance Technology, Inc. (the Company) filed a Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-161945) (the Registration Statement) with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which was declared effective on September 25, 2009. The Registration Statement registered the resale, from time to time, of 5,000,000 shares (the Shares) of the Companys common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, issuable upon conversion of the Companys Tranche A Zero Coupon Guaranteed Senior Unsecured Convertible Notes in the aggregate principal amount of $50.0 million (the Convertible Notes). The Shares were registered to permit resales of such Shares by the selling stockholder, as named in the Registration Statement, who acquired the Convertible Notes in a private placement completed on September 2, 2009.
In accordance with the undertaking of the Company contained in the Registration Statement pursuant to Item 512 of Regulation S-K, the Company is filing this Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 to the Registration Statement to deregister the Shares that were previously registered under the Registration Statement, but remain unsold as of the date hereof. As of the date of this filing, 5,000,000 Shares remain unsold under the Registration Statement. The Company is seeking to deregister these Shares because, pursuant to a Notes Purchase Agreement, dated October 22, 2009, by and between the Company and the selling stockholder, the Company has repurchased the Convertible Notes for a total consideration of $47.5 million. As a result, the Convertible Notes have been cancelled. The Registration Statement is hereby amended to reflect the deregistration of these 5,000,000 Shares.
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 of filing on Form S-3 and has duly caused this post-effective amendment No. 1 to the registration statement to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized, in the City of Shenzhen, China on January 22, 2010.
