Item 1. Security and Issuer

 

This Amendment No. 2 (this “Amendment No. 2”) amends and supplements the Schedule 13D initially filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 19, 2015 (as amended by the Schedule 13D/A previously filed on June 12, 2018, the “Original Schedule 13D”) by Henry Cornell, Cornell Investment Partners LLC, Cornell Capital GP II LP, Mario Investments LLC (“MI”) and Cornell Capital Special Situations Partners II LP relating to the Common Stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”), of MRC Global Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Issuer” or the “Company”). Beginning on the date this Amendment No. 2 is filed, all references in the Original Schedule 13D to the Schedule 13D shall be deemed to refer to the Original Schedule 13D as amended by this Amendment No. 2. Only those items reported in this Amendment No. 2 are amended and all other items in the Original Schedule 13D are unchanged.

 

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction

 

Item 4 is hereby amended to add the following:

 

“On April 24, 2023, MI filed a lawsuit (the “Lawsuit”) against the Issuer in the Delaware Court of Chancery seeking an injunction to prevent the Issuer from signing or executing any definitive documentation with respect to, or otherwise consummating the financing transaction disclosed by the Issuer on a Current Report on Form 8-K dated as of April 24, 2023. The Lawsuit alleges that the transaction, which involves the refinancing of $295 million in outstanding principal amount under the Issuer’s existing senior secured term loan B scheduled to mature in September 2024 (the “Existing Term Loan”) and the Issuer’s entry into a new, five-year $300 million senior secured term loan B (collectively, the “Refinancing”), is violative of MI’s bargained-for rights under the Certificate of Designations, as the Refinancing would, among other things, restrict the Issuer’s ability to pay dividends on the Series A Preferred Stock. The Lawsuit asserts that, as a result of the Issuer’s failure to obtain MI’s consent to enter into the Refinancing, the Refinancing violates the Issuer’s corporate charter and is therefore void ab initio under Delaware law. The Lawsuit seeks, among other things, (i) a declaration that the Issuer’s contemplated refinancing transaction violates the Issuer’s corporate charter and (ii) an order to enjoin the Issuer from signing or executing any definitive documentation with respect to, or otherwise consummating, the Refinancing. While MI objects to the Refinancing as contravening MI’s rights pursuant to the Certificate of Designations, MI has indicated to the Issuer that it desires to negotiate a resolution acceptable to all parties. Such a resolution could, for example, involve the Issuer repurchasing the preferred stock held by MI in whole or in part for cash or potentially other forms of consideration. However, there can be no assurance that any such transaction will occur, or the terms of any such transaction.”

 

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer

 

Item 5 is hereby amended and restated with the following text:

 

“(a) The information relating to the beneficial ownership of Common Stock by each of the Reporting Persons set forth in Rows 7 through 13 of the cover pages hereto is incorporated by reference.
