(1)Represents 742,020 shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock (as defined in Item 1 below), 802,875 shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Issuer’s Series A Conversion Warrants (as defined in Item 1 below) and 200,719 shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Issuer’s Series B Conversion Warrants (as defined in Item 1 below). The aggregate number of shares of Common Stock does not include shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of 3,612 shares of Series A Preferred Stock (as defined in Item 1 below) held by the Reporting Person (as defined in Item 2 below) because the convertibility of such shares of Series A Preferred Stock is contingent upon the satisfaction of the repayment by the Issuer of certain indebtedness obligations, which contingency has not yet been satisfied. such shares of Series A Preferred Stock would represent an additional 401,333 shares of Common Stock on an as-converted basis, calculated as of the date of filing of this Amendment No. 2 to Schedule 13D and excluding shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of accrued and unpaid dividends on the Series A Preferred Stock.

(2)The percentage is calculated using the total number of shares of Common Stock, Series A Conversion Warrants and Series B Conversion Warrants beneficially owned by the Reporting Person and based on 9,483,752 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of May 12, 2021, assuming that all outstanding Series A Conversion Warrants and Series B Conversion Warrants have been exercised in full. The percentage excludes 3,612 shares of Series A Preferred Stock held by the Reporting Person convertible into shares of Common Stock of the Issuer because the convertibility of such shares of Series A Preferred Stock is contingent upon the satisfaction of the repayment by the Issuer of certain indebtedness obligations, which contingency has not yet been satisfied. Assuming the conversion of all of the Issuer’s Series A Preferred Stock by the holders thereof (including the Reporting Person) and including all shares of Common Stock held by the Reporting Person and all shares of Common Stock issuable upon exercise of the Series A Conversion Warrants and Series B Conversion Warrants by the holders thereof (including the Reporting Person), the Reporting Person would beneficially own approximately 21.7% of the Issuer’s Common Stock, calculated on an as-converted basis as of the date of filing of this Amendment No. 2 to Schedule 13D and excluding shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of accrued and unpaid dividends on the Series A Preferred Stock.

Introductory Note

 

This Amendment No. 2 (the “Amendment No. 2”) amends and supplements the Schedule 13D filed by the Reporting Person (as defined herein) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 16, 2019, and amended by an Amendment No. 1 filed by the Reporting Person with the SEC on June 19, 2019 (as so amended, the “Schedule 13D”). All capitalized terms contained herein but not otherwise defined shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Schedule 13D.

 

Each item below amends and supplements the information disclosed under the corresponding item of the Schedule 13D.

 

Item 1.Security and Issuer

 

Item 1 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and restated to read as follows:

 

The equity securities to which this statement relates are: (i) the Common Stock, $0.0001 par value (the “Common Stock”), of The OLB Group, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Issuer”); (ii) Series A Conversion Warrants to purchase shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $9.00 per share (the “Series A Conversion Warrants”) and (iii) Series B Conversion Warrants to purchase shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $4.50 per share (the “Series B Conversion Warrants”). The Reporting Person also owns 3,612 shares of the Issuer’s Series A Preferred Stock (the “Series A Preferred Stock”), which shares are convertible into shares of Common Stock on or after the date on which the Issuer’s currently outstanding long-term indebtedness is repaid in full and there are no further outstanding obligations regarding such indebtedness. The Series A Preferred Stock held by the Reporting Person and the shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion thereof have been excluded from the aggregate number and percentage of the Issuer’s Common Stock reported on the cover pages of this Amendment No. 2 because the convertibility of such shares of Series A Preferred Stock is contingent upon the satisfaction of the repayment by the Issuer of certain indebtedness obligations, which contingency has not yet been satisfied. On an as-converted basis and excluding shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of accrued and unpaid dividends on the Series A Preferred Stock, such shares of Series A Preferred Stock would represent an additional 401,333 shares of Common Stock as calculated as of the date of filing of this Amendment No. 2.1

 

Item 2.Identity and Background

 

Paragraph (a) of Item 2 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and restated to read as follows:

 

(a)The persons filing this statement are John E. Herzog; Herzog & Co., LLC; John E. Herzog IRA Rollover, Charles Schwab & Co., Custodian; and John E. Herzog, Trustee, John E. Herzog Revocable Trust U/A/D 02/07/2014 (collectively, the “Reporting Person”).

 

 

 

1Common Stock share numbers in this Amendment No. 2 reflect a 1:30 reverse stock split effected by the Issuer on November 12, 2019, and described in that certain Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Issuer with the SEC on November 14, 2020.

Item 3.Source and Amount of Funds or Other Considerations

 

Item No. 3 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and supplemented by adding the following text:

 

On November 14, 2019, the Reporting Person tran sferred 28,524 shares of Common Stock to a revocable trust of which he is the trustee.

 

On December 10, 2019, the Reporting Person provided a further supporting letter (the “2019 Supporting Letter”) to the Issuer whereby he addressed his prior commitments to provide financial assistance to the Issuer and agreed to assist with its ongoing working capital needs, upon request through the earlier of (a) the closing of a public offering by the Issuer or (b) November 2020 (other than the Issuer’s obligations to pay principal or interest with respect to the Credit Agreement). The 2019 Supporting Letter was disclosed in that certain Annual Report on Form 10-K filed by the Issuer with the SEC on April 29, 2020 (the “2019 10-K”).

 

On April 24, 2020, pursuant to a further amendment to the Credit Agreement (the “2020 Credit Agreement Amendment”), the Reporting Person will have the ability to make an equity contribution to the Issuer for the sole purpose of paying the monthly payment obligations of the Issuer under the Credit Agreement. The 2020 Credit Agreement Amendment was disclosed in the 2019 10-K.

 

On August 11, 2020, in connection with a public offering of the Issuer’s securities, the Reporting Person converted $3,612,940 of indebtedness and accrued interest under the 2018 Note into 3,612 shares of Series A Preferred Stock, Series A Conversion Warrants to purchase up to 802,875 shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $9.00 per share and Series B Conversion Warrants to purchase up to 200,719 shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $4.50 per share. The Series A Conversion Warrants and Series B Conversion Warrants are exercisable until the fifth anniversary of the issuance date, subject to their earlier redemption. The Series A Preferred Stock is convertible into a number of shares of Common Stock determined by dividing the stated value of the Series A Preferred Stock of $1,000 per share plus accrued and unpaid dividends thereon (at a rate of 12% per annum) by the conversion price of $9.00 per share. The conversion of the indebtedness under the 2018 Note, and the issuance, in connection with such conversion, of the Series A Preferred Stock, the Series A Conversion Warrants and the Series B Conversion Warrants (collectively, the “2020 Offering”) are disclosed in that certain Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed by the Issuer with the SEC on August 14, 2020.
