  The name of the issuer is Perceptron, Inc., a Michigan corporation (the "Issuer").  The address of the Issuer's principal executive offices is 47827 Halyard Drive, Plymouth, Michigan, United States of America.  This Schedule 13D relates to the Issuer's common stock, $0.01 par value (the "Shares").  
     
     

 

 

Item 2. Identity and Background.  
  (a), (f) This Schedule 13D is being filed jointly by (i) Harbert Discovery Fund, LP, a Delaware limited partnership (the "Fund"), (ii) Harbert Discovery Fund GP, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the "Fund GP"), (iii) Harbert Fund Advisors, Inc., an Alabama corporation ("HFA"), (iv) Harbert Management Corporation, an Alabama corporation ("HMC"), (v) Jack Bryant, a United States citizen, (vi) Kenan Lucas, a United States citizen and (vii) Raymond Harbert, a United States citizen (collectively the "Reporting Persons").    
       
  (b) The principal business address for each of the Reporting Persons is 2100 Third Avenue North, Suite 600, Birmingham, Alabama 35203.   
       
  (c) Jack Bryant and Kenan Lucas, are directors and co-portfolio managers of the Fund GP, which serves as general partner of the Fund.  Raymond Harbert is the controlling shareholder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of HMC, an alternative asset investment management firm that is the managing member of the Fund GP.  Mr. Harbert also serves as the Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and Director of HFA, an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of HMC, which provides the Fund with certain operational and administrative services.  The principal business of the Fund is purchasing, holding and selling securities for investment purposes.

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.  
     
 

The Reporting Persons purchased the securities of the Issuer reported herein based on their belief that the securities were undervalued and represented an attractive investment opportunity.

 

As previously disclosed, on August 9, 2016, the Reporting Persons entered into a Standstill Agreement (the "Standstill Agreement," which term shall include any amendments thereto) with the Issuer whereby William C. Taylor, James A. Ratigan and John F. Bryant (collectively, the "New Directors") were appointed to the Issuer's Board of Directors. The New Directors filled vacancies left by the resignations of Kenneth R. Dabrowski and Philip J. DeCocco and the expansion of the Issuer's Board of Directors from six to seven members. The Issuer agreed to nominate, recommend and support the New Directors at the 2016 Annual Meeting of the Shareholders of the Issuer. At the 2016 Annual Meeting of the Shareholders of the Issuer held on November 10, 2016, the New Directors were elected by the Issuer's shareholders to a one-year term expiring at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Shareholders of the Issuer.

 

The Standstill Agreement was originally set to terminate on the date that was thirty days prior to the deadline for a shareholder to submit nominations at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Shareholders of the Issuer, but was extended pursuant to the Second Standstill Agreement Amendment described below.

 

The Standstill Agreement requires that the Reporting Persons vote all Shares of the Issuer that they beneficially own for each of the Issuer's nominees for election to the Issuer's Board of Directors, in favor of the Issuer's "say-on-pay" proposals, for the ratification of the appointment of independent auditors and, in other matters, in accordance with the recommendation of the Issuer's Board of Directors. Pursuant to the Standstill Agreement, the Reporting Persons have also agreed to certain customary standstill and voting provisions.

  

On November 17, 2016, the Issuer entered into the First Amendment to Standstill Agreement (the "First Standstill Agreement Amendment") with the Reporting Persons which amended the Standstill Agreement. The First Standstill Agreement Amendment provided that, upon the appointment by the Board of Directors of the Company (the "Board") of a new President and Chief Executive Officer, by June 1, 2017, the new President and Chief Executive Officer would be appointed to the Board to fill a vacancy left by resignation of either Robert S. Oswald or Terryll R. Smith, who would resign from the Board at that time to facilitate the appointment.

 

On May 31, 2017, the Issuer entered into the Second Amendment to the Standstill Agreement (the "Second Standstill Agreement Amendment") with the Reporting Persons which further amended the Standstill Agreement.  The Second Standstill Agreement provides that the term of the Standstill Agreement is extended so that it generally terminates on the date that is thirty days prior to the deadline for a shareholder to submit nominations at the 2018 Annual Meeting of the Shareholders of the Issuer.  The Second Standstill Agreement Amendment also provided that, upon the appointment by the Board of a new President and Chief Executive Officer, by December 31, 2017, the new President and Chief Executive Officer would be appointed to the Board to fill a vacancy left by resignation of either Robert S. Oswald or Terryll R. Smith, who would resign from the Board at that time to facilitate the appointment.

 

At the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Shareholders of the Issuer held on November 9, 2017, the New Directors were elected by the Issuer’s shareholders to a one-year term expiring at the 2018 Annual Meeting of the Shareholders of the Issuer.

 

On December 18, 2017, the Issuer entered into the Third Amendment to the Standstill Agreement (the "Third Standstill Agreement Amendment") with the Reporting Persons which further amended the Standstill Agreement.  The Third Standstill Agreement Amendment provides that, upon the appointment of a new President and Chief Executive Officer, by June 30, 2018, the new President and Chief Executive Officer will be appointed to the Board to fill a vacancy left by resignation of either Robert S. Oswald or Terryll R. Smith, who will resign from the Board at that time to facilitate the appointment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

     
 

 

As previously disclosed, on August 9, 2016, Mr. Bryant executed (i) a Non-Disclosure Agreement in the form attached as Exhibit A to the Standstill Agreement (the "Non-Disclosure Agreement") and (ii) a Joinder Agreement in the form attached as Exhibit A to the Non-Disclosure Agreement pursuant to which Mr. Bryant became a party to the Standstill Agreement.

 

The foregoing description is qualified in its entirety by reference to (i) the Standstill Agreement, Non-Disclosure Agreement, and the Joinder Agreement, which are incorporated by reference to Exhibits 10.1, 10.5, and 10.8, respectively to the Form 8-K filed by the Issuer with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 10, 2016, (ii) the First Standstill Agreement Amendment, which is incorporated by reference to Exhibit 10.1 of the 8-K filed by the Issuer with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 21, 2016, (iii) the Second Standstill Agreement Amendment, which is incorporated by reference to Exhibit 10.1 of the 8-K filed by the Issuer with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 6, 2017 and (iv) the Third Standstill Agreement Amendment, which is incorporated by reference to Exhibit 10.1 of the 8-K filed by the Issuer with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 21, 2017.

 

The Reporting Persons have had conversations with the Issuer's management regarding possible ways to enhance shareholder value. Consistent with the Standstill Agreement, the Reporting Persons intend to have additional conversations with the Issuer's management and Board of Directors. These conversations have covered and are expected to continue to cover a range of issues, including those relating to the business of the Issuer; board composition; management; operations; capital allocation; asset allocation; capitalization; dividend policy; financial condition; mergers and acquisitions strategy; overall business strategy; executive compensation; and corporate governance. The Reporting Persons have also had similar conversations with other stockholders of the Issuer and other interested parties, such as industry analysts, existing or potential strategic partners or competitors, investment professionals, and other investors. Consistent with the Standstill Agreement, the Reporting Persons may at any time reconsider and change their intentions relating to the foregoing.

 

No Reporting Person has any present plan or proposal which would relate to or would result in any of the matters set forth in subparagraphs (a)- (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D except as set forth herein or such as would occur upon completion of any of the actions discussed herein. The Reporting Persons may in the future take one or more of the actions described in subsections (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D and may discuss such actions with the Issuer's management and the Board of Directors, other stockholders of the Issuer, and other interested parties, such as those set out above.

 

The Reporting Persons intend to review their investments in the Issuer on a continuing basis. Depending on various factors, including, without limitation, the Issuer's financial position and strategic direction, the outcome of the discussions and actions referenced above, actions taken by the Issuer's Board of Directors, price levels of the Common Stock, other investment opportunities available to the Reporting Persons, conditions in the securities market and general economic and industry conditions, the Reporting Persons may in the future take actions with respect to its investment position in the Issuer as it deems appropriate, including, without limitation, purchasing additional Common Stock or selling some or all of its Common Stock, and/or engaging in hedging or similar transactions with respect to the Common Stock.
