* On June 30, 2020, Office Depot, Inc., a Delaware corporation (ODI), completed a holding company reorganization pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the Merger Agreement), dated as of June 30, 2020, by and among ODI, The ODP Corporation, a Delaware corporation (ODP), ODP Investment, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of ODP (ODPI), and Office Depot, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of ODPI (OD LLC), which resulted in ODP indirectly owning all of the outstanding capital stock of ODI (the Reorganization). Pursuant to the Reorganization, ODI merged with and into OD LLC (the Merger), with OD LLC surviving such merger as a direct wholly-owned subsidiary of ODPI and an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of ODP. Each share of ODI Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger automatically converted into an equivalent corresponding share of ODP Common Stock, having the same designations, rights, powers and preferences and the qualifications, limitations and restrictions as the corresponding share of ODI Common Stock being converted. The Merger constitutes a succession for purposes of Rule 12g-3(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act). This Form 15 relates solely to the reporting obligations of ODI and does not affect the reporting obligations of ODP, which is the successor registrant to ODI under the Exchange Act.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, The ODP Corporation, as successor registrant to Office Depot, Inc., has duly caused this certification/notice to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned duly authorized person.
