Explanatory Note

This Amendment No. 1 (this Amendment) amends the information provided in the Schedule 13D (the Original Schedule 13D) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) by Waddell & Reed Financial, Inc. (WDR), Waddell & Reed Financial Services, Inc. (WRFSI), Waddell & Reed, Inc. (WRI), Waddell & Reed Investment Management Company (WRIMCO), and Ivy Investment Management Company (IICO) on February 15, 2018. This Amendment is being filed to reflect that on February 26, 2018, the assets of all open-end investment companies and other managed accounts which were advised or sub-advised by WRIMCO were transferred to similar open-end investment companies and other managed accounts which are advised or sub-advised by IICO. WRIMCO is an investment advisory subsidiary of WRI, WRI is a broker-dealer and underwriting subsidiary of WRFSI, and WRFSI is a subsidiary of WDR. As a result of such transaction, WRIMCO, WRI, and WRFSI may no longer be deemed to have beneficial ownership of the securities of Marrone Bio Innovations, Inc. Therefore, this is an exit filing for WRIMCO, WRI, and WRFSI. This Amendment is also being filed to correct the following inadvertent typographical error: the Original Schedule 13D inadvertently reported the number of shares of common stock of Marrone Bio Innovations, Inc. beneficially owned by WDR as 28,714,912 shares and is being amended by this Amendment to 28,714,892 shares. This Amendment amends the information disclosed in the Original Schedule 13D as set forth herein. Except as otherwise specified in this Amendment, all items left blank remain unchanged in all material respects and any items that are reported are deemed to amend and restate the corresponding items in the Original Schedule 13D. Capitalized terms used herein but not defined herein have the respective meanings ascribed to them in the Original Schedule 13D.

Item 2. Identity and Background.

Item 2 of the Original Schedule 13D is amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

This statement is jointly filed by WDR, a Delaware corporation, WRFSI, a Missouri corporation, WRI, a Delaware corporation, WRIMCO, a Kansas corporation, and IICO, a Delaware corporation. Each of the foregoing is referred to as a Reporting Person and collectively as the Reporting Persons.

The principal office and business address of each of the Reporting Persons is 6300 Lamar Avenue, Overland Park, Kansas 66202. The principal business of WDR is to serve as a parent holding company for WRFSI and IICO. The principal business of WRFSI is to serve as a parent holding company for WRI. The principal business of WRI is to serve as registered broker-dealer and investment adviser that acts primarily as the national distributor and underwriter for shares of various mutual funds. The principal business of each of WRIMCO and IICO is to serve as a registered investment advisor for various mutual funds.

None of the Reporting Persons has, during the last five years, been convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors). No Reporting Person has, during the last five years, been 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. Information regarding the executive officers, directors or other control persons of WDR, WRFSI, WRI, WRIMCO, and IICO is set forth on Schedule 1, Schedule 2, Schedule 3, Schedule 4, and Schedule 5 attached hereto, respectively, which Schedules are hereby incorporated by reference. All such persons are citizens of the United States.

 


Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

Item 3 of the Original Schedule 13D is amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

The Issuer converted, pursuant to an amendment, dated December 15, 2017, to the senior secured promissory notes, dated as of August 20, 2015, in the aggregate principal amount of $40,000,000 (the Waddell Notes), issued and sold to Ivy Science & Technology Fund, Waddell & Reed Advisors Science & Technology Fund and Ivy VIP Science & Technology (collectively, the Funds), $35,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Waddell Notes into an aggregate of 20,000,000 shares of Common Stock, a $1.75 per share conversion rate, and 4,000,000 warrants to purchase shares of Common Stock reported in this Schedule 13D. The funds used to purchase the Waddell Notes were derived from the working capital of the Funds. The Funds purchased the Waddell Notes pursuant to a purchase agreement (the Notes Purchase Agreement), dated as of August 20, 2015, by and among the Issuer and the Funds. The Waddell Notes are secured by substantially all of the Issuers personal property assets pursuant to a security agreement (the Security Agreement) entered into among the Issuer, IICO, and the Funds on August 20, 2015. The additional shares of Common Stock reported in this Schedule 13D, which shares were previously reported in the Waddell Schedule 13G, were purchased for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $51,657,954, and such funds were derived from the working capital of one or more open-end investment companies or other managed accounts which were, prior to the Reorganization (as defined in Item 4 below), advised or sub-advised by IICO or WRIMCO and are, as a result of the Reorganization, advised or sub-advised by IICO.

The foregoing descriptions of the Security Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby do not purport to be complete and are subject to, and qualified in their entirety by reference to, the full text of the Security Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 2, and is incorporated herein by reference.

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.

Item 4 of the Original Schedule 13D is amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

The Reporting Persons acquired the shares of Common Stock and warrants to purchase shares of Common Stock reported in this Schedule 13D for investment purposes. As a result of the Reorganization (as defined below), WRIMCO, WRI, and WRFSI may no longer be deemed to have beneficial ownership of the Issuers securities.

On December 15, 2017, the Issuer entered into a securities purchase agreement (the Purchase Agreement) with certain accredited investors named therein (collectively, the Buyers), including Ospraie Ag Science LLC (Ospraie). Under the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Buyers agreed to purchase an aggregate of 44,000,001 units (the Units), with each Unit purchased by Ospraie consisting of one share of Common Stock and one warrant to purchase one share of Common Stock, and each Unit purchased by the other Buyers consisting of one share of Common Stock and one warrant to purchase 0.8 shares of Common Stock, for an aggregate purchase price of $30.0 million, including conversion of certain indebtedness owed to an affiliate of Ospraie. The sale of the Units pursuant to the Purchase Agreement (the Closing) closed on February 5, 2018.

Concurrently with its entry into the Purchase Agreement, on December 15, 2017, the Issuer also entered into an amendment to the Waddell Notes (such amendment, the Waddell Notes Amendment). On February 5, 2018, the Issuer converted, pursuant to the Waddell Notes Amendment, $35,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Waddell Notes into an aggregate of 20,000,000 shares of Common Stock and 4,000,000 warrants to purchase shares of Common Stock (the Waddell Warrants, and such conversion, the Waddell Debt Conversion), such that $5,000,000 of principal under the Waddell Notes now remains outstanding. Simultaneously with the Waddell Debt Conversion, the maturity of the Waddell Notes was extended to December 31, 2022, all interest payments under the Waddell Notes was deferred to maturity on December 31, 2022, and Ospraie was granted a right of first refusal to acquire the Waddell Notes. The transactions contemplated by the Waddell Notes Amendment were effective as of, and conditioned upon, the Closing.

In connection with the Closing, the Issuer appointed two new directors designated by Ospraie to the Issuers Board of Directors (the Board) effective upon the Closing (the Initial Designees). The two Initial Designees are Messrs. Robert A. Woods and Yogesh Mago. Mr. Woods joined the Board as Chairman, and serves on the Audit Committee of the Board, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of the Board and the Compensation Committee of the Board, which he chairs. Mr. Mago serves on the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of the Board, which he chairs.

 


Also in connection with the Closing, the Issuer entered into a voting and lock-up agreement with the Funds, certain affiliates of Ospraie (the Ospraie Group), certain affiliates of Ardsley Advisory Partners (the Ardsley Group), and Pamela G. Marrone, Ph.D. (the Voting and Lock-Up Agreement, and such parties collectively, the Voting Parties). Pursuant to the Voting and Lock-Up Agreement, the Ardsley Group, the Funds and Pamela G. Marrone each agreed to vote their existing shares of Common Stock in favor of the election of up to two directors designated by the Ospraie Group at the Issuers 2018 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, subject to certain conditions and limitations. Also pursuant to the Voting and Lock-Up Agreement, the Ardsley Group, the Funds and Pamela G. Marrone, and their respective affiliates, may not sell any shares of Common Stock or Common Equivalents (as defined in the Voting and Lock-Up Agreement) for a period of 180 days following the Closing date.

The foregoing descriptions of the Purchase Agreement, the Waddell Notes Amendment, the Voting and Lock-Up Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby do not purport to be complete and are subject to, and qualified in their entirety by reference to, the full texts of the Purchase Agreement, the Waddell Notes Amendment and the Voting and Lock-Up Agreement, which are attached hereto as Exhibit 3, Exhibit 4, and Exhibit 5, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference.

The Waddell Warrants are immediately exercisable in cash at an exercise price of $1.25 per share of Common Stock (subject to adjustments), or via net exercise if the Issuer does not have a registration statement registering the shares underlying the Waddell Warrants effective within 180 days of the Closing date, and the Waddell Warrants may be exercised at a holders option at any time on or before December 31, 2020. In addition, at the election of a Waddell Warrant holder, the Issuer is required to redeem its Waddell Warrant upon the occurrence of any Fundamental Transaction (as defined in the Waddell Warrant), and the Waddell Warrants are subject to weighted-average antidilution provisions.

The foregoing description of the Waddell Warrant does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by reference to, the full text of the Form of Waddell Warrants, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 6, and is incorporated herein by reference.

On December 15, 2017, the Funds and certain other parties (together, and including any successors and assigns to the Registration Rights Agreement, the Holders) entered into a registration rights agreement with the Issuer (the Registration Rights Agreement), pursuant to which the Issuer has agreed to standard registration rights, including filing a registration statement with the SEC within 60 days of the Closing date covering the resale of the shares of Common Stock (including shares issuable upon exercise of the Waddell Warrants) issued pursuant to the terms of the Waddell Notes Amendment and pursuant to certain other related transactions. The Registration Rights Agreement also provides that each of the Holders will not sell or otherwise dispose of their shares of Common Stock or securities exercisable for or convertible into Common Stock, commencing on December 15, 2017 and ending 180 days after the Closing, subject to customary exceptions.

The foregoing descriptions of the Registration Rights Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby do not purport to be complete and are subject to, and qualified in their entirety by reference to, the full text of the Registration Rights Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 7, and is incorporated herein by reference.

On February 26, 2018, the assets of all open-end investment companies and other managed accounts which were advised or sub-advised by WRIMCO were transferred to similar open-end investment companies and other managed accounts which are advised or sub-advised by IICO, pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Reorganization (the Reorganization Agreement), dated as of November 15, 2017, by and between the Ivy Funds, a statutory trust created under the laws of the State of Delaware, and the Waddell & Reed Advisors Funds, a statutory trust created under the laws of the State of Delaware, and joined in by WRIMCO and IICO solely for the purposes stated therein (the Reorganization). As part of the Reorganization, the assets of Waddell & Reed Advisors Science & Technology Fund were transferred to Ivy Science & Technology Fund. WRIMCO is an investment advisory subsidiary of WRI, WRI is a broker-dealer and underwriting subsidiary of WRFSI, and WRFSI is a subsidiary of WDR. As a result of the Reorganization, WRIMCO, WRI, and WRFSI may no longer be deemed to have beneficial ownership of the Issuers securities.

The foregoing descriptions of the Reorganization Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby do not purport to be complete and are subject to, and qualified in their entirety by reference to, the full text of the Form of Reorganization Agreement, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10, and is incorporated herein by reference.

Except as set forth herein, the Reporting Persons have no present plan or proposal that would relate to or result in any of the matters set forth in subparagraphs (a)-(j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D.

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

Item 5 of the Original Schedule 13D is amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

(a)-(b) The securities reported on herein are beneficially owned by one or more open-end investment companies or other managed accounts which are advised or sub-advised by IICO, an investment advisory subsidiary of WDR. The investment advisory contracts grant IICO all investment and/or voting power over securities owned by such advisory clients. The investment sub-advisory contracts grant IICO investment power over securities owned by such sub-advisory clients and, in most cases, voting power. Any investment restriction of a sub-advisory contract does not restrict investment discretion or power in a material manner. Therefore, IICO may be deemed the beneficial owner of the securities covered by this statement under Rule 13d-3 of the Act. As a result of the Reorganization, WRIMCO, WRI, and WRFSI may no longer be deemed to have beneficial ownership of the Issuers securities.


IICO and WDR are of the view that they are not acting as a group for purposes of Section 13(d) under the Act. Indirect beneficial ownership is attributed to WDR solely because of the WDRs control relationship to IICO.

(1) Includes 4,000,000 shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of Waddell Warrants.

 

(2) The percentages used in this Schedule 13D are calculated (i) based on an aggregate of 102,023,668 shares of Common Stock, which is the number of shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately after giving effect to the Closing and the related transactions, as provided by the Company in writing to the Reporting Persons, and (ii) assuming the exercise of the reported Waddell Warrants.

Pursuant to the Notes Purchase Agreement, the Issuer also issued and sold warrants to purchase up to 4,000,000 shares of Common Stock (the 2015 Warrants) to the Funds on August 20, 2015. The 2015 Warrants are not reported in this Schedule 13D because they contain a limitation preventing holders thereof from exercising any portion of the 2015 Warrant to the extent that after giving effect to such issuance after exercise such holder would beneficially own any Common Stock in excess of 19.99% of the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to such issuance, as set forth in the Form of Warrant for the 2015 Warrants (the Form of 2015 Warrant). The foregoing description of the 2015 Warrants does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by reference to, the full text of the Form of 2015 Warrant, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 8, and is incorporated herein by reference.

In addition, by virtue of the Voting and Lock-Up Agreement, the Reporting Persons and each of the other Voting Parties may be deemed to have formed a group within the meaning of Section 13(d)(3) of the Act, and the group may be deemed to beneficially own an aggregate of 111,162,035 shares of Common Stock (including warrants and options to purchase an aggregate of 44,565,594 shares of Common Stock), representing approximately 75.8% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock based on the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock set forth above and assuming the exercise of the warrants and options held by the Voting Parties. The Reporting Persons hereby disclaim that they constitute a group (within the meaning of Section 13(d)(3) of the Act) with the other Voting Parties and hereby disclaim beneficial ownership of any shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the other Voting Parties.


(c) Other than as described in Item 3 or Item 4, no Reporting Person has effected any transactions in the shares of Common Stock during the 60 days preceding the date hereof.

(d) No person other than the Reporting Persons have the right to receive or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or the proceeds from the sale of, the shares of Common Stock reported on this Schedule 13D.

(e) Effective February 26, 2018, as a result of the Reorganization, each of WRIMCO, WRI and WRFSI ceased to be the beneficial owner of any shares of Common Stock. Therefore, this is an exit filing for WRIMCO, WRI, and WRFSI.

Item 7. Material to Be Filed as Exhibits.

Item 7 of the Original Schedule 13D is amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

 

Exhibit 1*    Joint Filing Agreement dated February 15, 2018.
