This Amendment No. 3 to the joint statement on Schedule 13D with respect to the common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”), of Superior Industries International, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Issuer”), filed by the Reporting Persons (as defined below) on August 16, 2021, as amended by Amendment No. 1 on Schedule 13D with respect to the Common Stock filed by the Reporting Persons on September 3, 2021, as amended by Amendment No. 2 on Schedule 13D with respect to the Common Stock filed by the Reporting Persons on September 10, 2021 (such joint statement, as amended herein, the “Schedule 13D”), amends the Schedule 13D as follows:

 

1.

Item 3 of the Schedule 13D shall hereby be amended and restated in full as follows:

Item 3.         Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration

The Reporting Persons acquired beneficial ownership of an aggregate of 2,295,366 shares of Common Stock for $17,255,474.49 using working capital from the Fund and the proceeds of margin loans under margin loan facilities maintained in the ordinary course of business by the Fund with a broker on customary terms and conditions.”

 

2.

Paragraphs (a), (b) and (c) of Item 5 of the Schedule 13D shall hereby be amended and restated in full as follows:

Item 5.         Interest in Securities of the Issuer

(a, b) The percentages of beneficial ownership reported in this Item 5, and on each Reporting Person’s cover page to this Schedule 13D, are based on a total of 26,107,462 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding as of July 30, 2021, as reported in the most recent quarterly report of the Issuer on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2021. All of the share numbers reported below, and on each Reporting Person’s cover page to this Schedule 13D, are as of September 24, 2021, unless otherwise indicated. The cover page to this Schedule 13D for each Reporting Person is incorporated by reference in its entirety into this Item 5(a, b).

The Fund directly holds, and thus has sole voting and dispositive power over, 2,295,366 shares of Common Stock. The GP, as sole general partner of the Fund, also has sole authority to vote (or direct the vote of), and to dispose (or direct the disposal) of, these shares on behalf of the Fund, and Mr. Lynch has shared authority to vote (or direct the vote of), and to dispose (or direct the disposal) of, these shares on behalf of the GP. Accordingly, each of the Reporting Persons beneficially owns 2,295,366 shares of Common Stock, or approximately 8.8% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock, and the Reporting Persons beneficially own, in the aggregate, 2,295,366 shares of Common Stock, or approximately 8.8% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock.


CUSIP No. 868168105       Page 6 of 8 Pages

Effected pursuant to the exercise of a Put Option (as defined in Item 6) by the option’s counterparty.


CUSIP No. 868168105       Page 7 of 8 Pages

 

Each of these Put Options gives the option’s counterparty the right (but not the obligation) to sell to the Fund, on or before the option’s expiration date, the number of shares of Common Stock underlying the option, at a sale price per share equal to the option’s strike price per share. If a Put Option is exercised on or before its expiration date, the Fund must purchase the shares of Common Stock underlying the option in exchange for the option’s aggregate exercise price.

Except as otherwise described in this Schedule 13D, including the Exhibits attached hereto, there are no contracts, arrangements, understandings, or relationships (legal or otherwise) among the Reporting Persons, or between any Reporting Person(s) and any third party, with respect to any securities of the Issuer, including, but not limited to, those involving the transfer or voting of any of the securities, finder’s fees, joint ventures, loan or option arrangements, put or calls, guarantees of profits, division of profits or losses, or the giving or withholding of proxies.”

4.    Except as expressly modified hereby, all provisions of the Schedule 13D shall continue in full force and effect.
