The Registrant is filing these Post-Effective Amendments No. 2 to the Registration Statement on Form S-8 filed on April 27, 2001 (file no. 333-59714) and on December 1, 2004 (file no. 333-120883) to remove from those registration statements certain shares of the Registrants Common Stock, par value $.20 per share (the Common Stock), thereby registered for offer or sale pursuant to the Registrants 2001 Stock Incentive Plan (the 2001 Plan).
The 2001 Plan was frozen effective as of April 8, 2004. On and after that date, shares that otherwise would have been restored to the 2001 Plan due to awards having been forfeited, expired or canceled without the delivery of shares, awards having resulted in the forfeiture of shares back to the Registrant after delivery because of the failure to meet an award contingency or condition, or shares having been tendered to the Registrant to satisfy the exercise price or withheld by the Registrant to satisfy the tax withholding obligations in connection with awards ceased to be available for future awards under the 2001 Plan, but were rolled into and became available for issuance under the Registrants 2004 Stock Incentive Plan (the 2004 Plan). All such shares that became available for issuance under the Registrants 2004 Plan on or before April 30, 2010 have been registered on the Registration Statements on Form S-8 filed on December 1, 2004 (file no. 333-120882) or filed on June 4, 2010 (file no. 333-167317) for the 2004 Plan.
The Registrant has since adopted the T. Rowe Price Group, Inc. 2012 Long-Term Incentive Plan (the 2012 Plan). The 2001 Plan expired effective as of February 7, 2011. Since May 1, 2010 to the date of this filing, 1,464,510 shares with respect to awards granted under the 2001 Plan that were forfeited, expired, canceled or settled in cash without delivery of shares of Common Stock, tendered to satisfy the exercise price or withheld to satisfy the tax withholding obligations in connection with such awards, or forfeited back to the Registrant after delivery because of the failure to meet an award contingency or condition were reallocated to the 2012 Plan (the Carried Forward Shares).
Contemporaneously with the filing of these Post-Effective Amendments No. 2, the Registrant is filing a Registration Statement on Form S-8 to register the Carried Forward Shares for offer or sale pursuant to the 2012 Plan. In accordance with the principles set forth in Interpretation 89 under Section G of the Manual of Publicly Available Telephone Interpretations of the Division of Corporation Finance of the Securities and Exchange Commission (July 1997) and Instruction E to the General Instructions to Form S-8, these Post-Effective Amendments No. 2 are hereby filed to reallocate the Carried Forward Shares from the 2001 Plan to the 2012 Plan.
No future awards will be made under the 2001 Plan.
These Post-Effective Amendments to the Registration Statements shall become effective upon filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Rule 464 under the Securities Act of 1933.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, T. Rowe Price Group, Inc. certifies that it has reasonable grounds to believe that it meets all of the requirements for filing these Post-Effective Amendments No. 2 to the Registration Statements on Form S-8 and has duly caused these Post-Effective Amendments No. 2 to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized, in the City of Baltimore, State of Maryland, on this 24th day of April, 2012.
