EXPLANATORY NOTE

Citrix Systems, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company” or the “Registrant”) is filing this Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 to Form S-8 Registration Statement to deregister certain shares of the Registrant’s common stock, par value $.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), originally registered by the Registrant pursuant to its Registration Statement on Form S-8 (Commission File No. 333-183120 and referred to herein as the “Registration Statement”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 7, 2012 to be offered and sold pursuant to the Citrix Systems, Inc. Amended and Restated 2005 Equity Incentive Plan, as amended (the “Prior Plan”). A total of 48,600,000 shares of Common Stock were registered for issuance under the Prior Plan, including 5,500,000 shares of Common Stock initially registered pursuant to the Registration Statement.

Pursuant to the Citrix Systems, Inc. Amended and Restated 2014 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2014 Plan”), any shares of Common Stock underlying any awards granted under the Prior Plan that are forfeited, canceled or otherwise terminated (other than by exercise) after May 22, 2014, the date that the 2014 Plan was originally approved by the Company’s stockholders, are made available for awards under the 2014 Plan. Accordingly, an aggregate of 2,710,927 additional shares of Common Stock (the “2005 Shares”) have been included in the shares reserved for issuance under the 2014 Plan as a result of the forfeiture, cancellation or other termination of previously made awards under the Prior Plan during the period between May 22, 2014 and December 31, 2017. The 2005 Shares were registered under the Registration Statement and are hereby deregistered. The Registration Statement otherwise remains in effect as to the shares of Common Stock remaining available for offer and sale pursuant thereto.

Contemporaneously with the filing of this Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 to the Registration Statement, the Registrant is filing a Registration Statement on Form S-8 to register the 2005 Shares for issuance pursuant to the 2014 Plan.

To the extent any additional shares of Common Stock that remain subject to outstanding awards under the Prior Plan otherwise would have been returned to the Prior Plan after May 22, 2014 on account of the forfeiture, cancellation or other termination without a delivery of shares of such outstanding awards, those shares of Common Stock instead will be included in the reserve of shares of Common Stock for issuance under the 2014 Plan. Accordingly, the Registrant may periodically file additional post-effective amendment(s) to the Registration Statement and additional Registration Statement(s) on Form S-8 in order to carry forward such shares of Common Stock from the Prior Plan to the 2014 Plan for issuance thereunder.
