This Amendment No. 2 to Statement of Beneficial Ownership on Schedule 13D (this “Amendment No. 2”) amends the Statement of Beneficial Ownership on Schedule 13D filed by the Reporting Persons on March 27, 2017 (as amended, the “Schedule 13D” or this “Statement”), with respect to the Common Stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), of Perma-Fix Environmental Services, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”). Except as amended and supplemented by this Amendment No. 2, the Schedule 13D remains unchanged.

 

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

 

(a) The Reporting Persons beneficially own in the aggregate 579,114 shares of Common Stock, which represents approximately 4.8% of the Company’s outstanding shares of Common Stock.

 

The Fund directly holds the number and percentage of shares of Common Stock disclosed as beneficially owned by it in the applicable table set forth on the cover page to this Statement. None of the other Reporting Persons directly hold any of the shares of Common Stock disclosed in this Statement.

 

Each percentage ownership of shares of Common Stock set forth in this Statement is based on the 12,083,478 shares of Common Stock reported by the Company as outstanding as of November 4, 2019 in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 7, 2019.

 

The GP, as general partner of the Fund, and Mr. Putnam, as managing member of the GP, may be deemed to have indirect beneficial ownership of the shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Fund. The GP and Mr. Putnam disclaim beneficial ownership of such shares for all other purposes.

 

(c) The transactions effected by the Reporting Persons in the Common Stock during the past 60 days are set forth on Schedule A to this Statement. Each of these transactions was effected through the open market.

 

(e) As of December 10, 2019, the Reporting Persons ceased to be the beneficial owners of more than five percent of Common Stock.

 

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

 

Pursuant to Rule 13d-1(k) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the Reporting Persons have entered into an agreement with respect to the joint filing of this Amendment No. 2, which agreement is set forth on the signature page to this Statement.
