This Schedule 13D relates to the Common Stock, no par value, of Manitex International, Inc., a Michigan corporation (the “ Issuer ”). The principal executive offices of the Issuer are located at 9725 Industrial Drive, Bridgeview, Illinois 60455.

There are no other persons controlling the Reporting Person. Each of the executive officers and directors of the Reporting Person listed in Schedule A are citizens of Japan.

(d) Neither the Reporting Person, nor to the knowledge of the Reporting Person, any of its executive officers or directors listed in Schedule A has, during the last five years, been convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors).

Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration

The information in Item 4 is incorporated herein by reference.

On May 24, 2018, the Reporting Person entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “ Purchase Agreement ”) with the Issuer, pursuant to which the Issuer sold 2,918,542 shares of Common Stock to the Reporting Person for an aggregate purchase price of $32,658,484.98, in a transaction which closed on May 29, 2018 (the “ Closing Date ”).

The purchase price for the shares was funded by the Reporting Person from working capital and general corporate funds.

The Purchase Agreement is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this Schedule 13D and is incorporated herein by reference. The descriptions herein of various terms of the Purchase Agreement are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Purchase Agreement.

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction

The shares of Common Stock owned by the Reporting Person have been acquired for investment purposes. The Reporting Person may make further acquisitions of the Common Stock from time to time and, subject to certain restrictions, including a lock-up provision that significantly restricts the Reporting Person’s discretion to dispose of shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock for a period of one year following the Closing Date as set forth in the Purchase Agreement, may dispose of any or all of the Common Stock held by it at any time depending on an ongoing evaluation of the investment in such securities, prevailing market conditions, other investment opportunities and other factors.

Except for the foregoing, the Reporting Person has no plans or proposals which relate to, or could result in, any of the matters referred to in paragraphs (a) through (c) and (e) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D. However, as part of its ongoing evaluation of this investment and investment alternatives, the Reporting Person may consider such matters and, subject to applicable law, may hold discussions with or make proposals to the management or the board of directors of the Issuer, other shareholders of the Issuer or other third parties regarding such matters.

With respect to paragraph (d) of Item 4, the Reporting Person has, pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the right to nominate one individual to serve on the Issuer’s Board of Directors (the “ Board ”) at any time on or following May 24, 2018.

Item 6. Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships with Respect to Securities of the Issuer

The responses to Items 3, 4 and 5 of this Schedule 13D and the Exhibits to this Schedule 13D are incorporated herein by reference.

The Purchase Agreement affords the Reporting Person certain preemptive rights, whereby, subject to applicable securities laws and limitations imposed by applicable stock exchange requirements, for so long as the Reporting Person owns at least a majority of the Common Stock purchased by it pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Reporting Person has the right to purchase its pro rata portion of any newly issued securities by the Issuer that the Issuer may from time to time issue following the date of the Purchase Agreement.

The Reporting Person entered into a Registration Rights Agreement (the “ Registration Rights Agreement ”) with the Issuer on May 24, 2018, whereby promptly upon written request by the Reporting Person, such request not to be made sooner than the first anniversary of the date of the Registration Rights Agreement, the Issuer has agreed to prepare and file with the Securities and Exchange Commission a registration statement on Form S-3 for purposes of registering the resale of the Common Stock or, if the Issuer is not at such time eligible for the use of Form S-3, on an alternative form that permits the resale of the Common Stock with the Commission.
