This Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 (this “Amendment”) to Ingersoll Rand Inc.’s (formerly known as Gardner Denver Holdings, Inc.) (the “Registrant”) registration statement on Form S-4 (File No. 333-235748) on Form S-8 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on December 30, 2019, as amended by Amendment No. 1 filed with the Commission on January 15, 2020 (the “Form S-4” and, together with this Amendment, the “Registration Statement”), relates to the common stock (the “New IR Common Stock”), $0.01 par value per share of the Registrant.

The Registrant is a party to: (i) an Agreement and Plan of Merger by and among Ingersoll-Rand plc (“Legacy IR”), Ingersoll-Rand U.S. HoldCo, Inc. (“SpinCo”), Charm Merger Sub Inc. (“Merger Sub”) and the Registrant, dated as of April 30, 2019 (the “Merger Agreement”) pursuant to which, on February 29, 2020, Merger Sub merged with and into SpinCo with SpinCo surviving (the “Merger”); and (ii) an Employee Matters Agreement by and among the Registrant, Legacy IR and SpinCo, dated as of February 29, 2020 (as amended by that certain side letter dated July 11, 2019, and as further amended by that certain side letter dated February 29, 2020, the “Employee Matters Agreement”).

At the effective time of the Merger (the “Effective Time”), the Employee Matters Agreement provided for the conversion of each outstanding Legacy IR equity award granted to SpinCo Employees (as defined in the Employee Matters Agreement) under the Ingersoll-Rand plc Incentive Stock Plan of 2018, the Ingersoll-Rand plc Incentive Stock Plan of 2013, and the Ingersoll-Rand plc Incentive Stock Plan of 2007 (as amended and restated in 2010) (collectively, the “Legacy IR Stock Plans”) into an adjusted award of stock options (“New IR Stock Options”) or restricted stock units (“New IR RSUs”), as applicable, relating to shares of New IR Common Stock under the Ingersoll Rand Inc. Amended and Restated 2017 Omnibus Incentive Plan (as amended, the “Plan”). The conversion of Legacy IR equity awards held by SpinCo Employees into adjusted awards of New IR Stock Options or New IR RSUs is described in the “Explanatory Note” below. This Registration Statement has been filed for the purpose of registering 1,256,264 shares of New IR Common Stock at a minimum equal to the number of shares underlying the New IR Stock Options and those New IR RSUs that the Registrant has concluded constitute Substitute Awards (i.e., awards assumed in corporate transactions that do not need to be deducted from the Plan’s share reserve) under the Plan.

(2)
Pursuant to Rule 416(a) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), this Registration Statement also covers any additional shares of New IR Common Stock that may become issuable in respect of the securities identified in the table above under the Plan, by reason of any stock dividend, stock split, recapitalization, merger, consolidation, reorganization, or other similar transaction which results in an increase in the number of outstanding shares of New IR Common Stock.

(3)
All filing fees payable in connection with the registration of these securities were previously paid in connection with the filing with the Commission of the Form S-4, to which this is Post-Effective Amendment No. 1. Accordingly, no additional filing fee is required. See “Explanatory Note.”


EXPLANATORY NOTE

The Registrant hereby amends the Form S-4, which the Commission declared effective at 4:00 PM Eastern Time on January 16, 2020 by filing this Amendment.

At the Effective Time, the Employee Matters Agreement provided for the conversion of each outstanding Legacy IR equity award granted to SpinCo Employees under the Legacy IR Stock Plans into an adjusted award relating to shares of New IR Common Stock under the Plan as follows:

(1) Stock Options: Each unvested Legacy IR stock option held by any SpinCo Employee immediately prior to the Effective Time or vested Legacy IR stock option held by any SpinCo Employee who is a resident of the People’s Republic of China (other than the special administrative regions of Hong Kong and/or Macau, the “PRC”) immediately prior to the Effective Time was converted into an option to purchase a number of shares of New IR Common Stock (each such award, a “New IR Stock Option”) equal to the number of shares of Legacy IR common stock subject to the corresponding Legacy IR stock option divided by the exchange ratio of 0.256 (the “New IR Ratio”) (rounded down to the nearest number of whole shares), at an exercise price per share equal to the per share exercise price under the corresponding Legacy IR stock option multiplied by the New IR Ratio (rounded up to the nearest cent), subject to the same terms and conditions (including those related to vesting and post-employment exercise provisions) as were applicable under the Legacy IR stock option immediately prior to the Effective Time;

(2) Restricted Stock Units: Legacy IR restricted stock units held by a SpinCo Employee immediately prior to the Effective Time were replaced with an award of a number of restricted stock units that may be settled in or whose value was otherwise determined by reference to the value of New IR Common Stock (each such award, a “New IR RSU”), determined by dividing the number of Legacy IR restricted stock units subject to each award by the New IR Ratio (rounded up to the nearest whole share), subject to restrictions and other terms and conditions substantially identical to those that applied to the corresponding Legacy IR restricted stock units immediately prior to the Effective Time; and

(3) Forfeited Legacy IR Performance Stock Units: Legacy IR performance stock units held by a SpinCo Employee immediately prior to the Effective Time, which were forfeited at the Effective Time, were replaced with an award of a number of New IR RSUs determined by dividing (i) the average percentage payout of shares of Legacy IR common stock earned by all eligible participants who were employed for the full performance period with respect to Legacy IR performance stock units under the Legacy IR Stock Plans for 2017, 2018 and 2019, measured as of the date of settlement of such awards, multiplied by each SpinCo Employee’s outstanding Legacy IR performance stock unit award measured at target, by (ii) the New IR Ratio (rounded up to the nearest whole share); with the number of New IR RSUs then prorated based on the number of days remaining in the applicable performance period for the forfeited Legacy IR performance stock units following the Effective Time, subject to restrictions and other terms and conditions substantially identical to those that applied to the corresponding Legacy IR performance stock units immediately prior to the Effective Time (except that each New IR RSU will time vest on the last day of the applicable performance period for the corresponding forfeited Legacy IR performance stock unit, subject to the employee’s continued employment through such date). The Registrant has concluded that 34,067 of the New IR RSUs that replaced Legacy IR performance stock units will not constitute Substitute Awards under the Plan and such New IR RSUs are therefore not included in the total number of shares being registered pursuant to this Amendment as they will instead be deducted from the Plan’s share reserve. This number represents the excess of the number of New IR RSUs produced by the foregoing calculation over the number that would be produced if clause (i) of such calculation used the target number (instead of the average percentage payout) of shares of Legacy IR common stock subject to the Legacy IR performance stock units.
 
The Registrant hereby amends the Form S-4 by filing this Amendment relating to the offering of 1,256,264 shares of New IR Common Stock at a minimum equal to the number of shares equal to those New IR Stock Options and New IR RSUs that the Registrant has concluded constitute Substitute Awards under the Plan, and shall use commercially reasonable efforts to cause any Form S-8 Registration Statement to be kept effective (and the current status of the prospectus or prospectuses required thereby to be maintained) as long as any New IR Stock Options and New IR RSUs remain outstanding. All such shares were previously registered on the Form S-4 but will be subject to issuance pursuant to this Amendment.

Pursuant to Section E of the General Instructions to Form S-8, the contents of the Registration Statement on Form S-8 with respect to the Gardner Denver Holdings, Inc. 2017 Omnibus Incentive Plan, filed by the Registrant with the Commission on May 12, 2017 (File No. 333-217944), and the Registration Statement on Form S-8 with respect to the Ingersoll Rand Inc. Amended and Restated 2017 Omnibus Incentive Plan on March 2, 2020 (File No. 333-236801) are hereby incorporated by reference into this Registration Statement, except that the provisions contained in Part II of such previously-filed registration statements are modified as set forth in this Registration Statement.
