This registration statement shall hereinafter become effective in accordance with the provisions of Section 8(a) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
This Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 (this “Amendment”) to Registration Statement No. 333-249302, dated November 27, 2020 (the “Registration Statement”), is being filed pursuant to Rule 414(d) under the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”) by Opendoor Technologies Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Opendoor Technologies”), as the successor to Social Capital Hedosophia Corp. II, a Cayman Islands exempted company (“SCH”). On December 18, 2020, SCH changed its jurisdiction of incorporation from the Cayman Islands to the State of Delaware, as described further below (the “Domestication”) and continued to be named Opendoor Technologies Inc. Opendoor Technologies expressly adopts the Registration Statement, as modified by this Amendment, as its own registration statement for all purposes of the Securities Act and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”). For the purposes of this Amendment and the Registration Statement, references to the “Company,” “ the “Registrant,” “we,” “our,” “us” and similar terms mean, as of any time prior to the Domestication, SCH and, as of any time after the Domestication, Opendoor Technologies. The information contained in this Amendment sets forth additional information to reflect the Domestication. All documents filed by the Company under Sections 13(a), 13(c), 14 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act before the effective date of the Domestication will not reflect the change in our jurisdiction of incorporation or capital structure.
The Domestication was effected in the manner described in the section of the Registration Statement entitled “The Domestication Proposal.” In the Domestication, SCH effected a deregistration under Article 206 of the Cayman Islands Companies Law (2020 Revision) and, pursuant to Section 388 of the Delaware General Corporation Law (the “DGCL”), domesticated as a corporation organized in the State of Delaware. The business, assets and liabilities of the Company, as well as its principal place of business and fiscal year, were the same immediately after the Domestication as they were immediately prior to the Domestication. In addition, the directors and executive officers of the Company immediately after the Domestication were the same individuals who were directors and executive officers, respectively, of SCH immediately prior to the Domestication.
As a result of the Domestication, each of SCH’s issued and outstanding Class A ordinary shares (the “SCH Class A ordinary shares”) and Class B ordinary shares (the “SCH Class B ordinary shares”) automatically converted by operation of law into one share of common stock of Opendoor Technologies (“Opendoor Technologies common stock”). Additionally, each issued and outstanding warrant to purchase SCH Class A ordinary shares (the “SCH warrants”) automatically converted into one warrant to purchase one share of Opendoor Technologies common stock (“Opendoor Technologies warrant”) and each SCH unit was cancelled and entitled the holder thereof to one share of Opendoor Technologies common stock and one-third of one Opendoor Technologies warrant.
Trading of Opendoor Technologies common stock and Opendoor Technologies warrants began on The Nasdaq Global Select Market on December 21, 2020, under the new ticker symbol “OPEN” for the common stock and “OPENW” for the warrants. Prior to the Domestication and transfer to the Nasdaq, the SCH Class A ordinary shares, the SCH units and the SCH warrants traded under the ticker symbols “IPOB”, “IPOB.U” and “IPOB.WS”, respectively, on the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”). Upon effectiveness of the Domestication, the CUSIP numbers relating to the Opendoor Technologies common stock and the Opendoor Technologies warrants changed to 683712 103 and 683712 111, respectively.
The rights of holders of Opendoor Technologies common stock are now governed by its Delaware certificate of incorporation, its Delaware by-laws and the DGCL, each of which is described in SCH’s final prospectus dated November 27, 2020 relating to the Domestication, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) pursuant to Rule 424(b)(3) on November 27, 2020 (the “Final Prospectus”). The Final Prospectus formed part of the Registration Statement.
The registration fees were paid at the time of filing of the Registration Statement. Because no additional securities are being registered, no further registration fee is required.
INFORMATION NOT REQUIRED IN DOCUMENT
|Item 20.||Indemnification of Officers And Directors|
Subsection (a) of Section 145 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”) empowers a corporation to indemnify any person who was or is a party or who is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative (other than an action by or in the right of the corporation) by reason of the fact that the person is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, against expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by the person in connection with such action, suit or proceeding if the person acted in good faith and in a manner the person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe the person’s conduct was unlawful.
Subsection (b) of Section 145 empowers a corporation to indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action or suit by or in the right of the corporation to procure a judgment in its favor by reason of the fact that the person acted in any of the capacities set forth above, against expenses (including attorneys’ fees) actually and reasonably incurred by the person in connection with the defense or settlement of such action or suit if the person acted in good faith and in a manner the person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, except that no indemnification shall be made in respect of any claim, issue or matter as to which such person shall have been adjudged to be liable to the corporation unless and only to the extent that the Court of Chancery or the court in which such action or suit was brought shall determine upon application that, despite the adjudication of liability but in view of all the circumstances of the case, such person is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnity for such expenses which the Court of Chancery or such other court shall deem proper.
Section 145 further provides that to the extent a director or officer of a corporation has been successful on the merits or otherwise in the defense of any action, suit or proceeding referred to in subsections (a) and (b) of Section 145, or in defense of any claim, issue or matter therein, such person shall be indemnified against expenses (including attorneys’ fees) actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection therewith; that indemnification provided for by Section 145 shall not be deemed exclusive of any other rights to which the indemnified party may be entitled; and the indemnification provided for by Section 145 shall, unless otherwise provided when authorized or ratified, continue as to a person who has ceased to be a director, officer, employee or agent and shall inure to the benefit of such person’s heirs, executors and administrators. Section 145 also empowers the corporation to purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any person who is or was a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation, or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise against any liability asserted against such person and incurred by such person in any such capacity, or arising out of his status as such, whether or not the corporation would have the power to indemnify such person against such liabilities under Section 145.
Section 102(b)(7) of the DGCL provides that a corporation’s certificate of incorporation may contain a provision eliminating or limiting the personal liability of a director to the corporation or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director, provided that such provision shall not eliminate or limit the liability of a director (i) for any breach of the director’s duty of loyalty to the corporation or its stockholders, (ii) for acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (iii) under Section 174 of the DGCL, or (iv) for any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit.
Additionally, our Certificate of Incorporation limits the liability of our directors to the fullest extent permitted by the DGCL, and our Bylaws provide that we will indemnify them to the fullest extent permitted by such law. We have entered into and expect to continue to enter into agreements to indemnify our directors, executive officers and other employees as determined by our board of directors. Under the terms of such indemnification agreements, we are required to indemnify each of our directors and officers, to the fullest extent permitted by the laws of the state of Delaware, if the basis of the indemnitee’s involvement was by reason of the fact that the indemnitee is or was our director or officer or was serving at our request in an official capacity for another entity. We must indemnify our officers and directors against all reasonable fees, expenses, charges and other costs of any type or nature whatsoever, including any and all expenses and obligations paid or incurred in connection with investigating, defending, being a witness in, participating in (including on appeal), or preparing to defend, be a witness or participate in any completed, actual, pending or threatened action, suit, claim or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, or establishing or enforcing a right to indemnification under the indemnification agreement. The indemnification agreements also require us, if so requested, to advance all reasonable fees, expenses, charges and other costs that such director or officer incurred, provided that such person will return any such advance if it is ultimately determined that such person is not entitled to indemnification by us. Any claims for indemnification by our directors and officers may reduce our available funds to satisfy successful third-party claims against us and may reduce the amount of money available to us.

|1.||The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes:|
|(a)||To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this Registration Statement:|
|(i)||To include any prospectus required by section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act of 1933;|
|(ii)||To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of this Registration Statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in this Registration Statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than 20% change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective registration statement; and|
|(iii)||To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in this Registration Statement or any material change to such information in this Registration Statement;|
|(b)||That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each such post-effective amendment that contains a form of prospectus shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.|
|(c)||To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.|
|(d)||That, for the purpose of determining liability under the Securities Act of 1933 to any purchaser, each prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) as part of a registration statement relating to an offering, other than registration statements relying on Rule 430B or other than prospectuses filed in reliance on Rule 430A, shall be deemed to be part of and included in the registration statement as of the date it is first used after effectiveness. Provided, however, that no statement made in a registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement or made in a document incorporated or deemed incorporated by reference into the registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement will, as to a purchaser with a time of contract of sale prior to such first use, supersede or modify any statement that was made in the registration statement or prospectus that was part of the registration statement or made in any such document immediately prior to such date of first use.|
|(e)||That, for the purpose of determining liability of the registrant under the Securities Act of 1933 to any purchaser in the initial distribution of the securities, the undersigned registrant undertakes that in a primary offering of securities of the undersigned registrant pursuant to this registration statement, regardless of the underwriting method used to sell the securities to the purchaser, if the securities are offered or sold to such purchaser by means of any of the following communications, the undersigned registrant will be a seller to the purchaser and will be considered to offer or sell such securities to such purchaser:|
|(i)||Any preliminary prospectus or prospectus of the undersigned registrant relating to the offering required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424;|
|(ii)||Any free writing prospectus relating to the offering prepared by or on behalf of the undersigned registrant or used or referred to by the undersigned registrant;|
|(iii)||The portion of any other free writing prospectus relating to the offering containing material information about the undersigned registrant or its securities provided by or on behalf of the undersigned registrant; and|
|(iv)||Any other communication that is an offer in the offering made by the undersigned registrant to the purchaser.|
|2.||Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the Registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the Registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the SEC such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act of 1933 and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the Registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the Registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by them is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act of 1933 and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.|
|3.||The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes as follows: that prior to any public reoffering of the securities registered hereunder through use of a prospectus which is a part of this registration statement, by any person or party who is deemed to be an underwriter within the meaning of Rule 145(c), the issuer undertakes that such reoffering prospectus will contain the information called for by the applicable registration form with respect to reofferings by persons who may be deemed underwriters, in addition to the information called for by the other items of the applicable form.|
|4.||The registrant undertakes that every prospectus: (1) that is filed pursuant to the immediately preceding paragraph, or (2) that purports to meet the requirements of Section 10(a)(3) of the Act and is used in connection with an offering of securities subject to Rule 415, will be filed as a part of an amendment to the registration statement and will not be used until such amendment is effective, and that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.|
|5.||The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes to respond to requests for information that is incorporated by reference into the prospectus pursuant to Item 4, 10(b), 11 or 13 of this Form S-4, within one business day of receipt of such request, and to send the incorporated documents by first class mail or other equally prompt means. This includes information contained in documents filed subsequent to the effective date of this Registration Statement through the date of responding to the request.|
|6.||The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes to supply by means of a post-effective amendment all information concerning this transaction that was not the subject of and included in this Registration Statement when it became effective.|
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Act, the registrant has duly caused this Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 to the Registration Statement to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized, in the City of San Francisco, State of California, on January 11, 2021.

|RE:||Opendoor Technologies Inc.|
Registration Statement on Form S-4
Ladies and Gentlemen:
We have acted as special Delaware counsel to Opendoor Technologies Inc., a Delaware corporation, which, prior to changing its jurisdiction of incorporation to the State of Delaware (the “Domestication”), was known as Social Capital Hedosophia Holdings Corp. II, a Cayman Islands company limited by shares, in connection with Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 to the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-4 (File No. 333-249302), initially filed with the (the “Company”) Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on October 5, 2020, as amended and supplemented through the date hereof (the “Registration Statement”), under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), relating to, among other things, the Domestication.
On December 18, 2020 (the “Effective Date”), the Company changed its jurisdiction of incorporation by effecting a deregistration under Article 206 of the Cayman Islands Companies Law and a domestication under Section 388 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”) by filing a certificate of corporate domestication (the “Certificate of Domestication”) and a Certificate of Incorporation (as defined below), in each case, in respect of the Company with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware (the “DE Secretary of State”). The Domestication was approved by the shareholders of the Company. Prior to the Domestication, the Company was named Social Capital Hedosophia Holdings Corp. II, and the Company changed its name to Opendoor Technologies Inc. In this opinion, we refer to the Company prior to the effectiveness in connection with the Domestication of the Domestication as “SCH.” Upon the Certificate of Domestication and the Certificate of Incorporation becoming effective under Section 103 of the DGCL (the “Effective Time”), among other things, pursuant to the Plan of Domestication (as defined below): (1) each of the then issued and outstanding Class A ordinary shares, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Class A ordinary shares”), of SCH converted automatically, on a one-for-one basis, into shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of Opendoor Technologies (“Opendoor Technologies Common Stock”); (2) each of the then issued and outstanding redeemable warrants of SCH (the “SCH Warrants”) converted automatically into a redeemable warrant to acquire one share of Opendoor Technologies Common Stock (an “Opendoor Technologies Warrant”); and (3) each of the then issued and outstanding units of SCH that have not been previously separated into the underlying Class A ordinary shares and underlying SCH Warrants upon the request of the holder thereof (the “SCH Units”) were cancelled and entitled the holder thereof to one share of Opendoor Technologies Common Stock and one-third of one Opendoor Technologies Warrant.
January 11, 2021
This opinion is being furnished in connection with the requirements of Item 601(b)(5) of Regulation S-K under the Act, and no opinion is expressed herein as to any matter pertaining to the contents of the Registration Statement or the proxy statement/prospectus contained therein, other than as expressly stated herein with respect to the Domestication.
As such counsel, we have examined such matters of fact and questions of law as we have considered appropriate for purposes of this letter. With your consent, we have relied upon certificates and other assurances of officers of the Company and others as to factual matters without having independently verified such factual matters. We are opining as to the effect on the subject transaction only of the federal laws of the United States, the internal laws of the States of New York, and in numbered paragraphs 1-4, the DGCL, and we express no opinion with respect to the applicability to the opinions expressed herein, or the effect thereon, of the laws of any other jurisdiction or, in the case of Delaware, any other laws, or as to any matters of municipal law or the laws of any local agencies within any state.
We have examined, among other things, the following: (i) the Registration Statement; (ii) the Certificate of Domestication; (iii) the Certificate of Incorporation of the Company filed with the DE Secretary of State on December 18, 2020 (the “Certificate of Incorporation”); (iv) the Bylaws adopted by the Company in connection with the Domestication; (v) the Warrant Agreement, dated April 27, 2020, between SCH and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company and (vi) an executed copy of the Plan of Domestication, filed as Exhibit 2.2 to the Registration Statement (the “Plan of Domestication”).
In addition to the foregoing, for the purpose of rendering our opinions as expressed herein, we have assumed that:
|1.||Prior to effecting the Domestication, SCH’s shareholders approved among other things the Domestication, the Certificate of Incorporation and By-Laws in compliance with the applicable laws of the Cayman Islands and in accordance with SCH’s organizational documents; and|
|2.||All other necessary action was taken under the applicable laws of the Cayman Islands to authorize and permit the Domestication, and any and all consents, approvals and authorizations from applicable Cayman Islands governmental and regulatory authorities required to authorize and permit the Domestication were obtained.|
In our examination, we have assumed the genuineness of all signatures, including any endorsements, the legal capacity and competency of all natural persons, the authenticity of all documents submitted to us as originals, the conformity to original documents of all documents submitted to us as facsimile, electronic, certified or photostatic copies and the authenticity of the originals of such copies.
Based upon the foregoing and subject to the qualifications and assumptions stated herein, we are of the opinion that:
|1.||Upon the filing of the Certificate of Domestication simultaneously with the Certificate of Incorporation with the DE Secretary of State, the Domestication became effective and the Company continued as a corporation incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware.|
|2.||Upon the Effective Time, pursuant to the Plan of Domestication, each issued and outstanding Class A ordinary share automatically converted into one share of Opendoor Technologies Common Stock that was duly authorized by all necessary corporate action on the part of the Company and is be validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable.|
|3.||Upon the Effective Time, pursuant to the Plan of Domestication, each issued and outstanding SCH Warrant automatically converted into one Opendoor Technologies Warrant that was duly authorized by all necessary corporate action on the part the Company and constitutes the valid and binding obligation of the Company, enforceable against the Company in accordance with its terms.|
January 11, 2021
|4.||Upon the Effective Time, pursuant to the Plan of Domestication, each issued and outstanding SCH Unit was cancelled and entitled the holder thereof to one share of Opendoor Technologies Common Stock that was duly authorized by all requisite corporate action on the part of the Company and was validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable and one-third of one Opendoor Technologies Warrant that was duly authorized by all requisite corporate action on the part of the Company and constitutes the valid and binding obligation of the Company, enforceable against the Company in accordance with its terms.|
Our opinions set forth above are subject to: (i) the effect of bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, preference, fraudulent transfer, moratorium or other similar laws relating to or affecting the rights and remedies of creditors; (ii) the effect of general principles of equity, whether considered in a proceeding in equity or at law (including the possible unavailability of specific performance or injunctive relief), concepts of materiality, reasonableness, good faith and fair dealing, and the discretion of the court before which a proceeding is brought; (iii) the invalidity under certain circumstances under law or court decisions of provisions providing for the indemnification of or contribution to a party with respect to a liability where such indemnification or contribution is contrary to public policy; and (iv) we express no opinion as to (a) any provision for liquidated damages, default interest, late charges, monetary penalties, make-whole premiums or other economic remedies to the extent such provisions are deemed to constitute a penalty, (b) consents to, or restrictions upon, governing law, jurisdiction, venue, arbitration, remedies, or judicial relief, (c) waivers of rights or defenses, (d) any provision requiring the payment of attorneys’ fees, where such payment is contrary to law or public policy, (e) the creation, validity, attachment, perfection, or priority of any lien or security interest, (f) advance waivers of claims, defenses, rights granted by law, or notice, opportunity for hearing, evidentiary requirements, statutes of limitation, trial by jury or at law, or other procedural rights, (g) waivers of broadly or vaguely stated rights, (h) provisions for exclusivity, election or cumulation of rights or remedies, (i) provisions authorizing or validating conclusive or discretionary determinations, (j) grants of setoff rights, (k) proxies, powers and trusts, (l) provisions prohibiting, restricting, or requiring consent to assignment or transfer of any right or property, and (m) the severability, if invalid, of provisions to the foregoing effect.
With your consent, we have assumed (a) that the Opendoor Technologies Warrants and the Warrant Agreement have been or will be duly authorized, executed and delivered by the parties thereto other than the Company, (b) that such securities constitute or will constitute legally valid and binding obligations of the parties thereto other than the Company, enforceable against each of them in accordance with their respective terms and (c) that the status of the Warrants as legally valid and binding obligations of the parties will not be affected by any (i) breaches of, or defaults under, agreements or instruments, (ii) violations of statutes, rules, regulations or court or governmental orders or (iii) failures to obtain required consents, approvals or authorizations from, or to make required registrations, declarations or filings with, governmental authorities.
January 11, 2021
This opinion is for your benefit in connection with the Registration Statement and may be relied upon by you and by persons entitled to rely upon it pursuant to the applicable provisions of the Act. We consent to your filing this opinion as an exhibit to the Registration Statement and to the reference to our firm in the proxy statement/prospectus under the heading “Legal Matters.” In giving such consent, we do not thereby admit that we are in the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the Act or the rules and regulations of the Commission thereunder.
