See Issuer’s Form 8-K filed February 22, 2019.

 

This Amendment No. 6 amends the Schedule 13D, as previously amended and filed on December 20, 2018, as specifically set forth herein.

 

ITEM 1.

SECURITY AND ISSUER

 

This statement on Schedule 13D relates to the common stock, no par value (the “Common Stock”), of Second Sight Medical Products Inc., a California corporation (the “Issuer”). The principal executive offices of the Issuer are located at 12744 San Fernando Road, Suite 400, Sylmar, CA 91342.

 

The Reporting Persons (as defined below) beneficially own 125,931,419 shares of Common Stock (the “Shares”), which includes: 77,692,235 shares of Common Stock and currently exercisable warrants to purchase 48,239,184 shares of common stock.

-6-

 


 

 

 

ITEM 4.

PURPOSE OF THE TRANSACTION.

 

The Reporting Persons, directly or indirectly through certain affiliates, acquired the shares and the warrants of the Issuer for investment purposes and not with a view toward or having the effect of directing or changing control over the Issuer. Nevertheless, as a result of his appointment in March 2018 as the non-executive Chairman of the Board of Directors and his beneficial share ownership of over 75% of the Common Stock, Mr. Williams is deemed to control the Issuer. Mr. Williams has at all times from immediately prior to and since the initial public offering of the Common Stock in November 2014 been a principal shareholder and director of the Issuer and is a member of the family which co-founded the Issuer.  

 

The Reporting Persons will continue to evaluate their ownership, investment and voting position in the Issuer and they currently expect to continue holding Issuer’s securities for investment. Moreover, they may acquire additional securities of the Issuer, upon terms which they consider to be favorable, in open market and in privately-negotiated transactions.

 

 

ITEM 5.

INTEREST IN SECURITIES OF THE ISSUER.

 

(a)(i) Gregg Williams is the beneficial owner of an aggregate of 125,931,419 or 76.03% of the Issuer’s outstanding shares of Common Stock, including currently exercisable warrants to purchase 48,239,184 shares of common stock.

 

(ii) Gregg G. Williams 2006 Trust is the beneficial owner of an aggregate of 41,100,124 or 24.81% of the Issuer’s shares, including currently exercisable warrants to purchase 13,708,798 shares of Common Stock.
