This Amendment No. 1 to Schedule 13D (this “Amendment”) relates is the common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Common Stock”), of Nexeo Solutions, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Issuer”), and amends the Schedule 13D filed on June 20, 2016 (the “Original Schedule 13D”). Capitalized terms used and not defined in this Amendment have the meanings set forth in the Original Schedule 13D.
This Amendment is being filed to amend Item 4 and Item 5 of the Original Schedule 13D as follows. This Amendment represents the final amendment to the Original Schedule 13D and constitutes an exit filing for the Report Persons as the Reporting Persons beneficially own less than five percent of the Common Stock of the Issuer.
Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.
Item 4 of the Original Schedule 13D is amended to add the following:
The Sponsor sold a portion of Issuer’s Common Stock, and Wilbur L. Ross, Jr. divested himself of all beneficial ownership over all of the Issuer’s Common Stock, in connection with the appointment of Mr. Ross as the United States Secretary of Commerce, as a result of which Mr. Ross is required to divest beneficial ownership of the Issuer’s Common Stock in order to satisfy the requirements of 26 U.S.C. §1043(a)-(b)(1).
All remaining shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock are held by the Sponsor for investment purposes. The Reporting Persons may, subject to the continuing evaluation of the factors discussed herein, acquire from time to time additional securities of the Issuer in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions. The Sponsor may, from time to time, retain or sell all or a portion of its shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions. Any actions that the Reporting Persons might undertake will depend upon its/his review of numerous factors, including, among other things, the availability of shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock for purchase and the price levels of such shares, general market and economic conditions, ongoing evaluation of the Issuer’s business operations and prospects, the relative attractiveness of alternative business and investment opportunities, the actions of the management and the board of directors of the Issuer, personal financial planning, personal philanthropic endeavors, estate planning, legal requirements and other future developments.
The Reporting Persons do not have any current plans or proposals that relate to or that would result in any of the transactions or other matters specified in clauses (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D; provided that the Reporting Persons may, at any time and from time to time, review or reconsider its/his position with respect to the Issuer and reserve the right to change, formulate and/or develop such plans or proposals.
Item 5. Interests of Securities of the Issuer.
Item 5 of the Original Schedule 13D is amended and restated in its entirety to read as follows:
(a) and (b) The information contained on the cover pages to this Statement is incorporated herein by reference.
(c) On April 13, 2017, the Reporting Persons transferred 6,258,069 shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock (including all 4,955,796 shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock attributable to Mr. Ross) in a private sale to Park West Investors Master Fund, Limited and Park West Partners International, Limited pursuant to that certain Securities Purchase Agreement, dated April 12, 2017, by and among the Sponsor, Wilbur L.
