(2) Includes 210,074 shares of Common Stock subject to warrants that are exercisable within 60 days following the date of this Amendment No. 5 (this “Amendment”).

 

(3) Calculated based on 52,804,187 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of February 5, 2020.

  

 

 

CUSIP No. 03763A207 13D Page 3 of 6 pages

 

 

This Amendment updates certain information set forth in the Schedule 13D filed on behalf of Allied Physicians of California, A Professional Medical Corporation, a California professional medical corporation (the “Reporting Person”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on December 19, 2017, as amended on March 30, 2018, May 14, 2019, September 16, 2019 and September 17, 2019 (as amended, the “Schedule 13D”).

 

This Amendment is being filed to report (i) acquisitions of Common Stock by the Reporting Person since the last amendment to its Schedule 13D that in the aggregate exceed 1% of the outstanding shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock, and (ii) acquisitions of Common Stock by certain executive officers and directors of the Reporting Person, as set forth in Schedule A hereto.

  

ITEM 1.SECURITY AND ISSUER.

 

The name of the issuer is Apollo Medical Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Issuer”), which has its principal executive offices at 1668 S. Garfield Ave., 2nd Floor, Alhambra, CA 91801. This statement relates to the Issuer’s class of common stock, $.001 par value per share (“Common Stock”).

 

ITEM 2.IDENTITY AND BACKGROUND.

 

This statement is being filed by the Reporting Person, i.e., Allied Physicians of California, A Professional Medical Corporation, which is organized under the laws of the State of California. Its principal office is located at 1668 S. Garfield Ave., 2nd Floor, Alhambra, CA 91801, and its principal business is providing or arranging to provide medical services as an independent physician practice association.

 

During the last five years, neither the Reporting Person nor, to the knowledge of the Reporting Person, any of the executive officers and directors of the Reporting Person, (i) has been convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors) or (ii) was a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction and as a result of such proceeding was or is subject to a judgment, decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or finding any violation with respect to such laws.

  

ITEM 3.SOURCE AND AMOUNT OF FUNDS OR OTHER CONSIDERATION.

 

From November 19, 2019 through January 15, 2020, the Reporting Person acquired an aggregate of 423,189 shares of Common Stock on the open market (the “Open Market Shares”) for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $7,587,902.41.

 

The source of the funds used to acquire the Open Market Shares was from the cash proceeds received by the Reporting Person from the consummation of the “APC Transactions,” which cash proceeds are “Excluded Assets” solely for the benefit of the Reporting Person and its shareholders (other than the holder of the Reporting Person’s Series A Preferred Stock) as set forth in the Issuer’s definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on July 31, 2019 (the “Proxy Statement”). As such, the Open Market Shares, including any proceeds or gain on the sale thereof will have no impact on the Series A Dividend payable by the Reporting Person to the holder of the Reporting Person’s Series A Preferred Stock (i.e., AP-AMH Medical Corporation) as described in the Proxy Statement, and consequently will not affect the net income attributable to the Issuer.

 

In addition, on December 8, 2019, the Reporting Person received 93,450 shares of Common Stock comprised of the Reporting Person’s pro rata share of the “Holdback Shares” that were released pursuant to the “NMM Merger” (as defined and described in Item 4 below).

 

ITEM 4.PURPOSE OF TRANSACTION.

 

The information set forth in or incorporated by reference in Item 3 of this Amendment is incorporated by reference in its entirety into this Item 4.

 

The Reporting Person acquired the Open Market Shares for investment purposes to be held by the Reporting Person as “Excluded Assets” solely for the benefit of the Reporting Person and its shareholders (other than the holder of the Reporting Person’s Series A Preferred Stock) as described in the Proxy Statement.

 

Of the Open Market Shares, 61,897 shares of Common Stock were purchased under a 10b5-1 Trading Plan Agreement dated December 12, 2019 (the “Rule 10b5-1 Plan”), entered into between the Reporting Person and Dougherty & Company LLC, pursuant to Rule 10b5-1 and Rule 10b-18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"). The 10b5-1 Plan was subsequently terminated by the Reporting Person on January 15, 2020.

  

 

 

CUSIP No. 03763A207 13D Page 4 of 6 pages

 

 

The 93,450 shares of Common Stock received by the Reporting Person on December 8, 2019 were comprised of the Reporting Person’s pro rata share of the Holdback Shares released pursuant to the merger transaction between the Issuer and Network Medical Management, Inc. ("NMM") that was consummated on December 8, 2017 (the "NMM Merger"). As previously disclosed in the Issuer's SEC filings, at the closing of the NMM Merger, 10% of the total number of shares of the Issuer's Common Stock issuable to pre-merger NMM shareholders (including the Reporting Person) was held back to secure indemnification rights of the Issuer and its affiliates (the "Holdback Shares"), which Holdback Shares were to be released to such pre-merger NMM shareholders (including the Reporting Person) 50% on the first, and 50% on the second anniversaries of the closing of the NMM Merger if no indemnification claims are made by such dates. No indemnification claim was made before December 8, 2019 and, accordingly, the second half of the Holdback Shares (including the Reporting Person’s pro rata share thereof) was automatically released for issuance on that date.

 

The Reporting Person does not have present plans or proposals at this time that relate to or would result in any of the transactions described in subparagraphs (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D. The Reporting Person reserves the right to change its intentions and develop plans or proposals at any time, as it deems appropriate. The Reporting Person may at any time and from time to time, in the open market, in privately negotiated transactions or otherwise, acquire additional securities of Issuer or dispose of all or a portion of the securities of Issuer.

 

ITEM 5.INTEREST IN SECURITIES OF THE ISSUER.

 

(a)       The aggregate number and percentage of the class of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Reporting Person as of the date of this Amendment, including shares of Common Stock for which there is a right to acquire, is reflected on the cover page of this Amendment.

 

(b)       As described in the Proxy Statement, the Reporting Person has the sole power to vote or to direct the voting of 5,275,138 shares of Common Stock and has the sole power to dispose or to direct the disposition of 17,517,288 shares of Common Stock. Any vote by the Reporting Person in excess of 9.99% of the Issuer’s then outstanding shares of Common Stock will be voted by proxy given to the Issuer’s management, and those proxy holders will cast the excess votes in the same proportion as all other votes cast on any specific proposal coming before the Issuer’s stockholders.

 

(c)       The information set forth in or incorporated by reference in Items 3 and 4 of this Amendment are incorporated by reference in their entirety into this Item 5(c).

 

The following table list the Reporting Person’s open market purchase transactions of Common Stock that were effected during the sixty day period prior to the filing of this Amendment (exclusive of fees, commissions or other expenses):

The information called for by this Item 5 with respect to the executive officers and directors of the Reporting Person is set forth on Schedule A hereto.

 

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

 

On December 12, 2019, the Reporting Person entered into a 10b5-1 Trading Plan Agreement (the “Rule 10b5-1 Plan”) with Dougherty & Company LLC (the “Broker”), pursuant to which the Broker is authorized and directed to purchase, on behalf of the Reporting Person, shares of Common Stock on the open market up to an aggregate amount not to exceed $30,000,000, subject to satisfaction of certain conditions, including, among others, trading price. The Broker will cease purchasing Common Stock under the Rule 10b5-1 Plan on the earliest to occur of (i) June 16, 2020; (ii) the date that the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock purchased by the Broker reaches the specified purchase limit; (iii) the date the Reporting Person gives notice of termination pursuant to the terms of the Rule 10b5-1 Plan; (iv) the existence of any legal or regulatory restriction that would prohibit any purchase pursuant to the Rule 10b5-1 Plan; (v) the commencement of any proceedings in respect of or triggered by the Reporting Person’s bankruptcy or insolvency. A copy of the Rule 10b5-1 Plan is filed as Exhibit 99.13 hereto and the foregoing description of the Rule 10b5-1 Plan is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Rule 10b5-1 Plan. The 10b5-1 Plan was terminated by the Reporting Person on January 15, 2020.
