Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration

The Reporting Persons acquired beneficial ownership of an aggregate of 589,507 shares of Common Stock for $1,137,944.51 using working capital from the Fund and the proceeds of margin loans under margin loan facilities maintained in the ordinary course of business by the Fund with a broker on customary terms and conditions.

 

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction

The Reporting Persons acquired shares of the Common Stock based on their belief that the Common Stock represents an attractive investment opportunity, and such purchases have been made in the Reporting Persons’ ordinary course of business.

The Reporting Persons intend to review continuously their equity interest in the Issuer. Depending upon their evaluation of the factors described below, one or more of the Reporting Persons may from time to time purchase additional securities of the Issuer, dispose of all or a portion of the securities then held by such Reporting Persons, sell put options or covered call options, including covered call options that may be significantly in-the-money or that may cover a significant portion (including all) of the shares of Common Stock over which the Reporting Persons have beneficial ownership, or cease buying or selling such securities. Any such additional purchases or sales of securities of the Issuer may be in the open market, in privately negotiated transactions or otherwise.

The Reporting Persons may wish to engage in a constructive dialogue with officers, directors and other representatives of the Issuer, as well as the Issuer’s shareholders; topics of discussion may include, but are not limited to, the Issuer’s markets, operations, competitors, prospects, strategy, personnel, directors, ownership and capitalization. The Reporting Persons may also enter into confidentiality or similar agreements with the Issuer and, subject to such an agreement or otherwise, exchange information with the Issuer. The factors that the Reporting Persons may consider in evaluating their equity interest in the Issuer’s business include the following: (i) the Issuer’s business and prospects; (ii) the performance of the Common Stock and the availability of the Common Stock for purchase at particular price levels; (iii) the availability and nature of opportunities to dispose of the Reporting Persons’ interests; (iv) general economic conditions; (v) stock market conditions; (vi) other business and investment opportunities available to the Reporting Persons; and (vii) other plans and requirements of the Reporting Persons.

Depending on their assessment of the foregoing factors, the Reporting Persons may, from time to time, modify their present intention as stated in this Item 4.

Except as set forth above, the Reporting Persons intend to continuously review their options but do not have at this time any specific plans that would result in (a) the acquisition by any person of additional securities of the Issuer or the disposition of securities of the Issuer; (b) any extraordinary corporate transactions such as a merger, reorganization or liquidation involving the Issuer or any of its subsidiaries; (c) any sale or transfer of a material amount of the assets of the

 


CUSIP No. 561693201     Page 8 of 10 Pages

 

Issuer or of any of its subsidiaries; (d) any change in the present management or Board of Directors of the Issuer, including any plans or proposals to change the number or term of directors or to fill any existing vacancies on the Issuer’s Board of Directors; (e) any material change in the present capitalization or dividend policy of the Issuer; (f) any other material change in the Issuer’s business or corporate structure; (g) any change in the Issuer’s charter or by-laws or instruments corresponding thereto or other actions that may impede the acquisition of control of the Issuer by any person; (h) the Common Stock being delisted from a national securities exchange or ceasing to be authorized to be quoted in an inter-dealer quotation system of a registered national securities association; (i) causing a class of equity securities of the Issuer to become eligible for termination of registration pursuant to Section 12(g)(4) of the Exchange Act; or (j) any action similar to any of those enumerated above.

 

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer

The percentages of beneficial ownership reported in this Item 5, and on each Reporting Person’s cover page to this Schedule 13D, are based on a total of 8,762,530 shares of the Common Stock issued and outstanding as of March 21, 2014, as reported in the most recent annual report of the Issuer on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 28, 2013. All of the share numbers reported below, and on each Reporting Person’s cover page to this Schedule 13D, are as of April 7, 2014, unless otherwise indicated.

(a, b) The cover page to this Schedule 13D for each Reporting Person is incorporated by reference in its entirety into this Item 5(a, b). The Fund directly holds, and thus has sole voting and dispositive power over, 589,507 shares of Common Stock. The GP, as sole general partner of the Fund, also has the sole authority to vote (or direct the vote of), and to dispose (or direct the disposal) of, the shares of Common Stock, and each of Messrs. Lynch and Scharfman has the shared authority to vote (or direct the vote of), and to dispose (or direct the disposal) of, these shares of Common Stock on behalf of the GP. Messrs. Goldman and Jacobs do not have beneficial ownership of any shares of Common Stock.

Accordingly, each of the Reporting Persons beneficially owns 589,507 shares of Common Stock, or approximately 6.7% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock, and the Reporting Persons beneficially own, in the aggregate, 589,507 shares of Common Stock, or approximately 6.7% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock.

(c) No Reporting Person effected any transaction in shares of the Common Stock from February 3, 2014 (the date 60 days prior to the filing of this Amendment No. 1 to the Schedule 13D) to April 7, 2014.

(d) No person other than the Reporting Persons is known to have the right to receive or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from or the proceeds from the sale of shares of the Common Stock.

(e) Not applicable.

Except as otherwise described in this Schedule 13D, including the Exhibits attached hereto, there are no contracts, arrangements, understandings, or relationships (legal or otherwise) among the Reporting Persons, or between any Reporting Person(s) and any third party, with respect to any securities of the Issuer, including, but not limited to, those involving the transfer or voting any of the securities, finder’s fees, joint ventures, loan or option arrangements, put or calls, guarantees of profits, division of profits or losses, or the giving or withholding of proxies.
