EXPLANATORY NOTE

The Meet Group, Inc. (the “Registrant,” “we,” or “us”) is filing this Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 to Form S-8 Registration Statement (this “Post-Effective Amendment”) to deregister certain securities originally registered by the Registrant pursuant to its Registration Statement on Form S-8 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on May 10, 2017 (Registration Statement No. 333-217820 and referred to herein as the “Prior Registration Statement”) with respect to shares of the Registrant’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), thereby registered for offer or sale pursuant to, among other plans, the Registrant’s Amended and Restated 2012 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the “A&R 2012 Plan”). The Prior Registration Statement registered 4,550,000 shares of Common Stock.
The Registrant has since adopted a new equity incentive plan, the Registrant’s 2018 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the “2018 Plan”), which replaces the A&R 2012 Plan as of June 1, 2018, the date the Registrant’s stockholders approved the 2018 Plan. No future awards will be made under the A&R 2012 Plan. This Post-Effective Amendment is being filed solely to carry forward the 300,924 shares registered under the Prior Registration Statement that will not be used for awards under the A&R 2012 Plan to the 2018 Plan (the “Carryover Shares”). The Carryover Shares are hereby deregistered under the Prior Registration Statement.

Contemporaneously with the filing of this Post-Effective Amendment, the Registrant is filing a new Registration Statement on Form S-8 (the “New Registration Statement”) to register the shares of Common Stock now available for offer or sale pursuant to the 2018 Plan, including but not limited to the Carryover Shares. The registration fee paid for the Carryover Shares under the Prior Registration Statement shall be carried over to the New Registration Statement.

The Registrant may, from time to time, file additional post-effective amendments to the Prior Registration Statement to deregister shares that subsequently become available for new awards under the 2018 Plan due to outstanding awards under the A&R 2012 Plan expiring, being forfeited or terminated, or settled in cash.
