From October 2, 2019 through October 14, 2019, LMH executed trades in the open market to acquire beneficial ownership of 153,000 common shares of the Issuer Common Stock (the “Covered Trades”).  The Covered Trades were funded with cash on LMH’s balance sheet available for investment.

 

The information set forth in Item 5(c) of the Schedule 13D/A is incorporated herein by reference.

 

ITEM 4. PURPOSE OF TRANSACTION

 

Item 4 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and supplemented by inserting the following:

 

LMH acquired beneficial ownership of the Issuer Common Stock in the Covered Trades for investment purposes and intends to review their investment in the Issuer on a continuing basis.  The information contained in each of Item 3, Item 5 and Item 6 of this Amendment is incorporated herein by reference.

 

ITEM 5. INTEREST IN SECURITIES OF THE ISSUER

 

Item 5 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended by amending and restating captions (a) and (c) thereof to read as follows:

 

(a)         LMSI is the beneficial owner of 32,642,100 common shares, or approximately 29.9% of the Issuer Common Stock issued and outstanding (on a non-diluted basis).

 

LMH, as the sole shareholder of LMSI, may be deemed to have voting and dispositive power with respect to the common shares of the Issuer Common Stock beneficially owned by LMSI. As such, LMH may be deemed the indirect beneficial owner of 32,642,100 common shares and is the direct beneficial owner of an additional 153,000 common shares, or, together, approximately 30.0% of the Issuer Common Stock issued and outstanding (on a non-diluted basis).

 

Marchmont, as the sole shareholder of LMH, may be deemed to have voting and dispositive power with respect to the common shares of the Issuer Common Stock beneficially owned by LMSI and LMH.  As such, Marchmont may be deemed the indirect beneficial owner of 32,795,100 common shares, or approximately 30.0% of the Issuer Common Stock issued and outstanding (on a non-diluted basis).

 

Mrs. Yousriya Nassif Loza, as the sole shareholder of Marchmont may be deemed to have voting and dispositive power with respect to the common shares of the Issuer Common Stock beneficially owned by LMSI and LMH.  As such, Mrs. Yousriya Nassif Loza may be deemed the indirect beneficial owner of 32,795,100 common shares, or approximately 30.0% of the Issuer Common Stock issued and outstanding (on a non-diluted basis).

 

Each of the Reporting Persons disclaims beneficial ownership in all shares of the Issuer Common Stock reported herein, except to the extent of the Reporting Person’s respective pecuniary interest therein.  All share percentage calculations in this Amendment are based on 109,244,620 common shares of the Issuer Common Stock issued and outstanding as of October 25, 2019, as reported under the section “Description of Common Shares” in the Issuer’s Form F-10 filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on October 29, 2019.

Other than as described in this Amendment, the Reporting Persons and the Reporting Persons’ knowledge, the Covered Individuals, have not effected any transactions in the Issuer Common Stock during the last 60 days.

 

ITEM 6. CONTRACTS, ARRANGEMENTS, UNDERSTANDINGS OR RELATIONSHIPS WITH RESPECT TO SECURITIES OF THE ISSUER

 

Item 6 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended by amending and restating the section titled “Standstill Obligations” as follows:

 

Standstill Obligations

 

Under the Investor Rights Agreement, the Investor agreed to certain “standstill” obligations in effect until the earlier of (i) two years following the Closing Date and (ii) such time as the ownership interest of the Investor and its affiliates in the Issuer Common Stock is less than 10%, without the prior written consent of the Issuer (the “Standstill Period”), subject to certain exceptions.

 

The Issuer and the Investor entered into an agreement, dated September 10, 2019, amending the Investor Rights Agreement, (the “Investor Rights Amendment Agreement”) pursuant to which the Issuer consented to the Investor acquiring Issuer Common Stock in excess of the current 30% limitation and raising the limitation from 30% to 35% during the Standstill Period.

 

During the Standstill Period, as modified by the Investor Rights Amendment Agreement, the Investor and its affiliates will be restricted from effecting or proposing (or publicly disclosing any intention to effect or propose) certain matters including to: (a) acquire any Voting Shares or Convertible Securities or right or options to acquire any Voting Shares or Convertible Securities, if following such acquisition, the Investor and its affiliates would own more than 35% of the issued and outstanding Voting Shares; (b) complete any take-over bid, exchange offer, tender offer or similar transaction for any securities of the Issuer and/or any of its affiliates, if following the completion thereof, the Investor and its affiliates would own more than 35% of the issued and outstanding Voting Shares; (c) “solicit”, or participate or join with any person (other than the Issuer) in the “solicitation” of, any “proxies” (as such terms are defined in the Securities Act (Ontario, Canada)) to vote; and (d) enter into any arrangements with respect to, or act as a financing source for, any of the foregoing actions.

 

Item 6 of the Schedule 13D is hereby further amended by inserting the following after the third paragraph of the section titled “Loan Facility”:

 

On November 21, 2019, the Investor, LMSI and LMAH, among others, agreed to refinance the Facility Agreement pursuant to a Refinancing Agreement with Citibank N.A., London Branch, and ICBC, among others, whereby a number of new loans will each partially refinance the loans outstanding under the Facility Agreement until fully refinanced.  In connection with such refinancing, the Investor, as borrower, and LMSI and LMAH, as security providers, entered into a new Loan Agreement dated November 21, 2019 (as amended from time to time, the “2019 Facility Agreement”) with Citibank N.A., ICBC, J.P. Morgan Securities Plc and Bank of Montreal, as original lenders and calculation agents (the “2019 Lenders”), a facility agent and a security agent (the “2019 Security Agent”).  In connection with the 2019 Facility Agreement, among other things, the Investor and each of LMSI and LMAH entered into a Cash and Securities Accounts Security Agreement dated November 21, 2019, with the 2019 Security Agent (the “2019 Security Documents”, and together with the 2019 Facility Agreement and any borrowing notice and each agreement or instrument delivered pursuant to the foregoing or pursuant to the security interests and collateral granted in accordance with the foregoing, the “2019 Loan Documentation”).

 

Pursuant to the 2019 Security Documents, the Investor’s obligations under the 2019 Facility Agreement will be secured by a pledge of a basket of shares owned by LMSI or LMAH, consisting of up to 35,000,000 shares of Issuer Common Stock (the “Pledged Issuer Common Stock”), and shares of another corporate entity (the “2019 Alternative

 

8


 

Shares”, and together with the Pledged Issuer Common Stock, the “2019 Pledged Shares”).  Upon each new loan under the 2019 Facility Agreement (up to a maximum of five) a proportionate amount of the Pledged Shares is to be released as security under the Facility Agreement and such shares will be pledged as 2019 Pledged Shares as security under the 2019 Facility Agreement.

 

Under the 2019 Facility Agreement, the Investor is entitled to borrow under two facilities, Facility A and Facility B, in up to five loans.  The 2019 Pledged Shares are pledged across both facilities, however, the Investor has the right to voluntarily pre-pay Facility B, under which it may borrow up to $50,000,000, in order to release the Pledged Issuer Common Stock, in accordance with and subject to the terms set forth in the 2019 Loan Documentation. The loans under the 2019 Facility Agreement mature on or about November 21, 2021, subject to any mutually agreed extension. Upon the occurrence of certain events that are customary for this type of loan, the Lenders may exercise their rights to require the Investor, or any successors, assignees or transferees, to pre-pay the loan proceeds or post additional collateral, and the Lenders may exercise their rights to foreclose on, and dispose of, the Pledged Shares and other collateral, in each case, in accordance with the 2019 Loan Documentation.

 

ITEM 7. MATERIALS TO BE FILED AS EXHIBITS

 

Item 7 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and supplemented by inserting the following:

Joint Filing Agreement, dated November 25, 2019, between LMSI, LMH, Marchmont and Yousriya Nassif Loza.
