Other than the shares of Class A Common Stock, $0.001 par value per share (the “Common Stock”), of LPath Inc. (the “Issuer”) owned by LB I Group Inc. as reported herein, Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. (“Holdings”) is unable to confirm whether or not it is the beneficial owner of any additional shares of Common Stock that may or may not be actually owned by any of Holdings’ other affiliates.  On September 15, 2008, Holdings, and at later dates a number of its affiliates, filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”) in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York (the “Bankruptcy Court”) in a jointly administered proceeding captioned In re Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., et. al. under Case No. 08-13555.  On September 19, 2008, the Securities Investor Protection Corporation under the Securities Investor Protection Act of 1970, as amended (“SIPA”) commenced a proceeding against Lehman Brothers Inc. (“LBI”) in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (the “District Court”) in the case captioned Securities Investors Protection Corporation v. Lehman Brothers Inc., Case No. 08-CIV-8119 (GEL).  On September 19, 2008, the District Court entered the Order Commencing Liquidation (“LBI Liquidation Order”) pursuant to the provisions of SIPA.  The LBI Liquidation Order provided, among other things, the appointment of James W. Giddens as trustee for the SIPA liquidation of LBI and removed the proceeding to the Bankruptcy Court under Case No. 08-1420 (JMP) SIPA.
 
Holdings is unable to provide information on its beneficial ownership, if any, of the Common Stock (other than the shares of Common Stock owned by LB I Group Inc. reported herein) primarily due to (1) the commencement of various administrative or civil rehabilitation proceedings of subsidiaries comprising significant parts of Holdings’ European and Asian businesses, which have resulted in significant portions of Holdings’ securities trading records and systems being unavailable to, and non-accessible by, Holdings, and (2) the sale since September 15, 2008 of significant businesses comprising Holdings’ historical business (the “Sale”).  As a result of the Sale, and actions taken by certain creditors with respect to securities that had been pledged by Holdings, or its affiliates, as collateral to those creditors, Holdings cannot compile an accurate accounting of securities held.

This Amendment No. 3 (“Amendment No. 3”) amends the Schedule 13D filed initially on April 16, 2007 (the “Original 13D”), with respect to the Class A common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”) of LPath Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Issuer”), as amended by Amendment No. 1 thereto filed on June 14, 2007 (“Amendment No. 1”) and Amendment No. 2 thereto filed on August 18, 2008 (“Amendment No. 2,” and together with the Original 13D and Amendment No. 1, the “Schedule 13D Filing”).

Item 2.
Identity and Background
 
     
 
Item 2 of the Schedule 13D Filing is hereby supplemented as follows:
 
On September 19, 2008, the Securities Investor Protection Corporation under the Securities Investor Protection Act, as amended (“SIPA”) commenced a proceeding against Lehman Brothers Inc., a Delaware corporation (“LBI”), in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (the “District Court”) in the case captioned Securities Investors Protection Corporation v. Lehman Brothers Inc., Case No. 08-CIV-8119 (GEL). On September 19, 2008, the District Court entered the Order commencing Liquidation (the “LBI Liquidation Order”) pursuant to the provisions of SIPA. The LBI Liquidation order provided, among other things, the appointment of James W. Giddens as trustee for the SIPA liquidation and removed the proceeding to the Bankruptcy Court under Case No. 08-1420 (JMP) SIPA. As a result, LBI ceased to be an affiliate of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Holdings”), and Holdings could no longer be deemed to be the beneficial owner of any shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock that may or may not be owned by LBI.  In addition, on September 19, 2008, LBI transferred its entire ownership interest in LB I Group Inc., a Delaware corporation (“LB I Group”), to Lehman ALI Inc., a Delaware corporation (“ALI”). Therefore, LBI ceased to be a Reporting Person, and ALI became a Reporting Person and, together with Holdings and LB I Group, are the “Reporting Persons”.
 
 
     
Item 4.
Purpose of Transaction.
 
     
 
Item 5(c) of this Amendment No. 3 is incorporated herein by reference.
 
     
Item 5.
Interest in Securities of the Issuer.
   
 
Item 5 of the Schedule 13D Filing is hereby supplemented as follows:
 
 
(a)  Items 11 and 13 of the cover page for each Reporting Person are incorporated by reference herein.  As of August 10, 2012, the Reporting Persons beneficially owned in the aggregate 1,447,293 shares of Common Stock, representing approximately 2.0% of the Common Stock outstanding, based on 73,720,944 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of May 9, 2012.
 
(b)  Items 7 through 10 of the cover page for each Reporting Person are incorporated herein by reference.
 
(c) The Reporting Persons have not effected any transactions within the 60 days preceding the date of filing this Amendment No. 3, except that LB I Group sold shares of Common Stock on the dates, in the amounts and at the prices set forth below, which were effected in broker transactions on exchanges.
