EXPLANATORY NOTE

 

This Amendment No. 3 (this “Amendment”) is being jointly filed by (i) Park West Asset Management LLC (“PWAM”), a Delaware limited liability company and the investment manager to (a) Park West Investors Master Fund, Limited (“PWIMF”), a Cayman Islands exempted company and (b) Park West Partners International, Limited (“PWPI” and, collectively with PWIMF, the “PW Funds”), a Cayman Islands exempted company; (ii) PWIMF; and (iii) Peter S. Park, as the sole member and manager of PWAM (“Mr. Park” and, collectively with PWAM and PWIMF, the “Reporting Persons”).

 

This Amendment amends the Schedule 13D filed with the Securities Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on November 20, 2017, as amended by Amendment No. 1 to such Schedule 13D filed with the SEC on December 31, 2018 (“Amendment No. 1”), as further amended by Amendment No. 2 to such Schedule 13D filed with the SEC on March 1, 2019 (“Amendment No. 2,” and together with Amendment No. 1, the “prior Schedule 13D” and as amended hereby, this “Schedule 13D”), relating to the shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), of PLx Pharma, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Issuer”). Except as set forth below, the prior Schedule 13D remains in effect, and capitalized terms used herein but not defined herein have such respective meanings as defined in the prior Schedule 13D. The information set forth in response to each separate Item below shall be deemed to be a response to all Items where such information is relevant. The information set forth in the exhibits attached hereto is expressly incorporated herein by reference and the response to each Item of this Schedule 13D is qualified in its entirety by the provisions of such exhibits.

 

This Amendment hereby amends Item 4, Item 5, Item 6 and Item 7 of the prior Schedule 13D as follows:

 

Item 4.

Purpose of Transaction

 

 
 

Item 4 of the prior Schedule 13D is amended and supplemented by adding the information below:

 

Series B Purchase Agreement; Closing of Series B Private Placement; Cancellation of Series Commitment Warrants

 

 

 

 
 

 

 

On May 15, 2020, the Issuer issued, pursuant to a Purchase Agreement (the “Series B Purchase Agreement”) with the PW Funds, 6,000 shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Series B Preferred Stock”), including 5,450 and 550 shares of Series B Preferred Stock to PWIMF and PWPI, respectively, at a price of $1,000 per share, for an aggregate purchase price of $6,000,000 (the “Series B Private Placement”). The closing of the Series B Private Placement was contingent on the Issuer obtaining stockholder approval of the issuance of more than 20% of the Common Stock pursuant to the Series B Private Placement for purposes of Nasdaq Listing Rule 5635 (the “Series B Stockholder Approval”), which occurred at a special meeting of stockholders convened for such purpose on May 15, 2020. The terms, rights, obligations and preferences of the Series B Preferred Stock are set forth in the Certificate of Designations, Preferences and Rights of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock of the Issuer (the “Series B Certificate of Designations”), filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on May 15, 2020. A copy of the form of Series B Certificate of Designations is incorporated by reference as Exhibit F to this Schedule 13D. The terms and provisions of the Series B Preferred Stock and the Series B Certificate of Designations are described more fully in the Issuer’s current report on Form 8-K filed with the Commission on March 13, 2020.

 

 
 

Pursuant to the Series B Purchase Agreement, the Issuer had also previously issued warrants to purchase an aggregate of 200,250 shares of the Common Stock (the “Series B Commitment Warrants”) to the PW Funds, including 181,850 and 18,400 to PWIMF and PWPI, respectively, exercisable at a price of $3.50 per share, subject to adjustment; provided, however, that the Series B Commitment Warrants would only vest and become exercisable in the event that the Issuer did not obtain the Series B Stockholder Approval on or prior to July 31, 2020. As a result of the Series B Stockholder Approval, on May 15, 2020, the Series B Commitment Warrants expired unvested and have been surrendered by the PW Funds to the Issuer for cancellation.

 

 

 

Item 5.

Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

 

 
 

Item 5 of the prior Schedule 13D is hereby amended and restated in its entirety to read as follows:

 

 

 

 
 

 

     
  (a) – (b)

The aggregate percentage of Common Stock reported owned by each person named herein is based upon 9,156,260 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of May 12, 2020, as reported in the Issuer’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on May 15, 2020.

 

As of the filing date of this report, (i) PWIMF held 1,332,191 shares of Common Stock and, subject to the limitations described below, 13,565 shares of Series A Preferred Stock, convertible into 5,217,307 shares of Common Stock, warrants to purchase up to 902,528 shares of Common Stock, and 5,450 shares of Series B Preferred stock, convertible into 1,758,064 shares of Common Stock; and (ii) PWPI held 141,027 shares of Common Stock and, subject to the limitations described below, 1,435 shares of Series A Preferred Stock, convertible into 551,923 shares of Common Stock, warrants to purchase up to 115,653 shares of Common Stock, and 550 shares of Series B Preferred stock, convertible into 177,419 shares of Common Stock. Each of the Series A Preferred Stock and Series B Preferred Stock contain a provision prohibiting conversion to the extent that the holder, together with its affiliates, would beneficially own in excess of 9.9% of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to such conversion. The warrants expire on June 14, 2027 and contain a provision prohibiting exercise to the extent that the holder, together with its affiliates, would beneficially own in excess of 9.99% of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to such exercise.

 

 
   

As a result of the foregoing, PWAM and Mr. Park may be deemed to beneficially own 1,473,218 shares of Common Stock, and no shares of Common Stock underlying the warrants and each of the Series A Preferred Stock and Series B Preferred Stock, held in the aggregate by the PW Funds, for an aggregate beneficial ownership percentage of approximately 16.1% of the shares of Common Stock deemed issued and outstanding as of the filing date of this report; and PWIMF may be deemed to beneficially own 1,332,191 shares of Common Stock, and no shares of Common Stock underlying the warrants, the Series A Preferred Stock and the Series B Preferred Stock, for an aggregate beneficial ownership percentage of approximately 14.5% of the shares of Common Stock deemed issued and outstanding as of the filing date of this report.

 

 
         
 
 

 

   

Each of Mr. Park and PWAM has shared power to vote or direct the vote of 1,473,218 shares of Common Stock. Each of Mr. Park and PWAM has shared power to dispose or direct the disposition of 1,473,218 shares of Common Stock.

 

   
   

PWIMF has shared power to vote or direct the vote of 1,332,191 shares of Common Stock. PWIMF has shared power to dispose or direct the disposition of 1,332,191 shares of Common Stock.

 

   
  (c)

  (e)

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

Item 6 of the prior Schedule 13D is amended and supplemented by adding the information below:

 

In connection with the Series B Private Placement, the Issuer entered into a registration rights agreement, dated as of March 12, 2020 (the “Series B Registration Rights Agreement”), with the Initial Investors, pursuant to which the Issuer will undertake to file, within thirty days following the earlier of the date of the closing of the Private Placement or July 15, 2020, a registration statement to register the shares of Common Stock issuable, as applicable, upon either (x) conversion of the shares of Series B Preferred Stock issuable pursuant to the Series B Purchase Agreement or (y) exercise of the Series B Warrants; and to cause such registration statement to be declared effective by the SEC as promptly as reasonably practicable following the filing date and maintain the effectiveness of the registration statement until all of such shares of Common Stock registered have been sold or are otherwise able to be sold pursuant to Rule 144. In the event the Issuer fails to file, or obtain effectiveness of, such registration statement within the given period of time, the Issuer will be obligated to pay liquidated damages to the Initial Investors for every 30 days during which such filing is not made and/or effectiveness obtained, such liquidated damages being subject to certain exceptions. A copy of the Series B Registration Rights Agreement is incorporated by reference as Exhibit G to this Schedule 13D.
