AMENDMENT NO. 10 TO SCHEDULE 13D

 

This Amendment No. 10 amends the Report on Schedule 13D originally filed on October 15, 2012 (the “Original 13D,” and as amended by the Amendment No. 1 to Schedule 13D filed on June 20, 2013, the Amendment No. 2 to Schedule 13D filed on July 31, 2013, the Amendment No. 3 to Schedule 13D filed on December 11, 2013, the Amendment No. 4 to Schedule 13D filed on April 24, 2015, the Amendment No. 5 to Schedule 13D on June 2, 2015, the Amendment No. 6 to Schedule 13D on August 29, 2016, the Amendment No. 7 to Schedule 13D filed on October 19, 2016, the Amendment No. 8 to Schedule 13D filed on June 20, 2017, and the Amendment No. 9 to Schedule 13D filed on October 4, 2017, the “Amended 13D”) by Mr. Robert L. Johnson, The RLJ Companies, LLC (“The RLJ Companies”) and RLJ SPAC Acquisition, LLC (“RLJ SPAC”) with respect to the shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (“Common Stock”), of RLJ Entertainment, Inc. (the “Issuer”).  Mr. Johnson, The RLJ Companies and RLJ SPAC are collectively referred to as the “Reporting Persons.”

 

Unless indicated otherwise, all items omitted remain unchanged, and any items which are reported are deemed to amend and update the existing items in the Amended 13D.

 

ITEM 5.

INTEREST IN SECURITIES OF THE ISSUER

 

On January 2, 2018, the Issuer issued 418,255 shares of Common Stock as payment of interest on its Credit Agreement with AMC.  In addition, on January 2, 2018, the Issuer issued 75,000 shares of Common Stock to members of its management pursuant to the vesting of outstanding restricted stock units.

 

None of Mr. Johnson, The RLJ Companies or RLJ SPAC effected any transactions in the Common Stock during the past sixty days.

 

As of January 2, 2018, following the foregoing issuances, the Issuer had 14,564,678 outstanding shares of Common Stock. For purposes of Exchange Act Rule 13d-3, each of Mr. Johnson, The RLJ Companies and RLJ SPAC may be deemed to beneficially own 8,294,465 shares of Common Stock (approximately 51.63% of the Common Stock), including 6,794,465 outstanding shares of Common Stock and warrants to purchase 1,500,000 shares of Common Stock at $3.00 per share.

 

The foregoing beneficial ownership amount and percentage are calculated in accordance with Securities Exchange Act Rule 13d-3, which directs that reporting persons assume that their convertible preferred stock or warrants are converted or exercised, as applicable, in their entirety and that no other holder of convertible preferred stock or warrants converts their convertible preferred stock or exercises their warrants.
