Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration
The aggregate purchase price paid in connection with the acquisition by Mr. Murdock and Holdings of an aggregate of 1,000 shares of Common Stock that triggered the obligation to file this Schedule 13D was $12,500.

As of the date of this filing, and as a result of the internal restructuring transactions described below, the Reporting Persons beneficially own an aggregate of 51,710,000 shares of Common Stock.

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction
The Reporting Persons acquired the shares of Common Stock reported herein as beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons solely for investment purposes. Mr. Murdock has held a controlling interest in the Issuer (or its predecessor) since 1985. From March 28, 2003, the date of the Issuer’s going private transaction, until immediately prior to the consummation of the initial public offering of the Common Stock completed on October 28, 2009 (the “IPO”), Mr. Murdock has beneficially owned all issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock through DHM Holding Company, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“DHM”), which was owned by him and Holdings.

 

 



 

As previously disclosed in the Issuer’s Registration Statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-161345) originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on August 14, 2009, as amended (the “Registration Statement”), in connection with the IPO, the Issuer and Mr. Murdock effected a series of internal restructuring transactions, which resulted in the Reporting Persons beneficially owning an aggregate of 51,710,000 shares of Common Stock as reported herein. The mechanics of these internal restructuring transactions and the means by which Mr. Murdock and Holdings acquired direct ownership of Common Stock are summarized below, as are the transfer restrictions imposed on the shares of Common Stock held by Mr. Murdock and Holdings in connection with the IPO and the Trust Offering (as defined below). These restructuring transactions did not affect the percentage of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons.
Internal Restructurings
As noted above, prior to the consummation of the IPO, DHM was the direct owner of all 1,000 issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock. On October 27, 2009, DHM entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Stock Purchase Agreement”) with Mr. Murdock and Holdings pursuant to which DHM agreed to transfer on a pro rata basis to its two stockholders, Mr. Murdock and Holdings, 778 shares of Common Stock and 222 shares of Common Stock, respectively, for a per share purchase price of $12.50 per share, immediately following the Split (as defined below). On October 28, 2009, prior to the merger of DHM with and into the Issuer in which the Issuer was the surviving corporation (the “Merger”), the Issuer effected a 51,710-for-1 forward split (the “Split”) of the Common Stock, resulting in DHM’s direct ownership of 51,710,000 shares of Common Stock. Pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement, immediately following the Split, DHM transferred to Mr. Murdock and Holdings, 778 shares of Common Stock and 222 shares of Common Stock, respectively, at a price of $12.50 per share. The foregoing summary of the Stock Purchase Agreement is qualified in entirety by reference to the complete text of the Stock Purchase Agreement, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 99.5 and is incorporated herein by reference.
At the effective time of the Merger and as a result thereof, (i) all 51,709,000 issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock held directly by DHM were cancelled and retired and ceased to exist and (ii) each issued and outstanding share of Common Stock owned by any person other than DHM, by virtue of the Merger, split into 53,085.2 shares of Common Stock. As a result, immediately following the Merger, Mr. Murdock directly owned 41,200,286 shares of Common Stock and Holdings directly owned 11,784,914 shares of Common Stock. No other shares of Common Stock were issued and outstanding at such time other than the shares of Common Stock owned by them. The foregoing summary of the Merger is qualified in entirety by reference to the complete text of the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated October 27, 2009, between DHM and the Issuer, a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit 99.4 and is incorporated herein by reference.
Following the Merger and prior to the consummation of the IPO, the Issuer redeemed an aggregate of 1,375,200 shares of Common Stock owned directly by Mr. Murdock. Specifically, the Issuer redeemed (i) 415,200 shares of Common Stock in exchange for the transfer to Mr. Murdock’s designee of an 85% interest in Wellbeing Properties, LLC, and the assumption by such designee of $30 million of debt associated with Wellbeing Properties, LLC, and (ii) 960,000 shares of Common Stock in exchange for the transfer to Mr. Murdock’s designee of the Issuer’s ownership interest in one parcel of idle farmland of approximately 1600 acres in Honduras.
As a result of the restructuring transactions described above, at the time of the consummation of the IPO and as of the date of this filing, Mr. Murdock as trustee of the Trust directly owns 39,925,086 shares of Common Stock and Holdings directly owns 11,784,914 shares of Common Stock.
Lock-up Agreements
In connection with the IPO, on October 22, 2009, Mr. Murdock and Holdings entered into a lock-up agreement (“Lockup Agreements”) with the underwriters in respect of the shares of Common Stock held by them, respectively. Pursuant to the Lockup Agreements, subject to certain exceptions described below, they may not offer, sell, contract to sell, pledge, grant any option to purchase, make any short sale or otherwise dispose of any shares of Common Stock or any securities of the Issuer that are substantially similar to the Common Stock or any securities that are convertible into, exchangeable for, or that represent the right to receive shares of Common Stock, or any such substantially similar securities, owned now or acquired hereafter, directly or with respect to which Mr. Murdock or Holdings has beneficial ownership within the rules and regulations of the SEC without the prior written consent of Goldman, Sachs & Co. until April 20, 2010 (the “Restricted Period”), unless automatically extended pursuant to the terms of the Lockup Agreements. Pursuant to the Lockup Agreements, the Restricted Period will automatically be extended if (i) during the last 17 days prior to April 20, 2010 the Issuer issues an earnings release or announces material news or a material event; or (ii) prior to the expiration of the Restricted Period, the Issuer announces that it will release earnings results during the 15-day period following April 20, 2010, the restrictions described above will continue to apply until the expiration of the 18-day period beginning on the issuance of the earnings release or the announcement of the material news or material event. The foregoing restrictions on transfer do not apply to: (i) a transfer of shares as a bona fide gift, where the donee agrees to be bound by such restrictions; (ii) a transfer of shares not involving a disposition for value to (a) any trust for the direct or indirect benefit of the beneficial holder of such shares or his immediate family, or (b) any wholly-owned subsidiary, in each case where the transferee agrees to be bound by such restrictions; (iii) a transfer of shares in connection with the Trust Offering (defined below) and; (iv) from and after January 20, 2010, a pledge as collateral for any loan of up to 30% of the shares held by Mr. Murdock or Holdings, as applicable, not subject to the Trust Offering, where the counterparty to such pledge agrees to be bound by such restrictions, if such pledge does not require any public report or filing with the SEC. The foregoing summaries of the Lockup Agreements are qualified in entirety by reference to the complete text of the Lockup Agreements copies of which are filed herewith as Exhibits 99.2 and 99.3 and are incorporated herein by reference.

 

 



 

2009 Trust Offering
As described in the Registration Statement, concurrent with the IPO, a newly formed trust not affiliated with the Issuer, the 2009 Dole Food Automatic Common Exchange Security Trust (the “2009 Trust”), offered up to 24,000,000 of its $0.875 automatic common exchange securities (the “Securities”), with the option for the initial purchasers to purchase up to an additional 3,600,000 Securities from the 2009 Trust at the initial offering price (the “Trust Offering”). The Securities are exchangeable, at the Trust’s option, for shares of Common Stock or the cash equivalent value of such shares of Common Stock, beginning on November 1, 2012 (the “Exchange Date”).
In connection with the Trust Offering, on October 22, 2009, (i) Mr. Murdock entered into a Forward Purchase Agreement (the “Forward Purchase Agreement”) with the 2009 Trust pursuant to which Mr. Murdock agreed to deliver to the 2009 Trust on the Exchange Date a number of shares of Common Stock equal to the product of the exchange rate times the 24,000,000 Securities offered in the Trust Offering, or 27,600,000 Securities, if the initial purchasers exercise their option to purchase additional Securities; and (ii) Mr. Murdock entered into a Collateral Agreement (the “Collateral Agreement”) with U.S. Bank, National Association, as Collateral Agent (the “Collateral Agent”), and the 2009 Trust, pursuant to which Mr. Murdock agreed to grant a security interest in the maximum number of shares of Common Stock initially deliverable under the Forward Purchase Agreement. The foregoing summaries of the Forward Purchase Agreement and Collateral Agreement are qualified in entirety by reference to the complete text of the Forward Purchase Agreement and Collateral Agreement copies of which are filed herewith as Exhibits 99.6 and 99.7, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference.
As of the date of this filing, the 2009 Trust sold 24,000,000 Securities, resulting in Mr. Murdock’s pledge to the Collateral Agent of 24,000,000 shares of Common Stock. Pursuant to the Collateral Agreement, Mr. Murdock has the right to vote these shares of Common Stock for so long as such shares are beneficially owned by him and pledged under the Collateral Agreement, unless an event of default occurs under the Forward Purchase Agreement or the Collateral Agreement. In addition, pursuant to the Forward Purchase Agreement and Collateral Agreement, if the initial purchasers exercise their option to purchase an additional 3,600,000 Securities from the 2009 Trust at the initial offering price, Mr. Murdock is obligated to deliver to the 2009 Trust and pledge to the Collateral Agent an additional 3,600,000 shares of Common Stock.
The Reporting Persons intend to review on a continuing basis their investment in the Issuer. The Reporting Persons may decide to increase or, subject to, among other things, the Lockup Agreements, decrease their investment in the Issuer depending upon estate planning considerations, the price and availability of the Issuer’s securities, subsequent developments affecting the Issuer, the Issuer’s business and prospects, other investment and business opportunities available to the Reporting Persons, general stock market and economic conditions, tax considerations and other factors. Mr. Murdock, as a member of the Issuer’s Board of Directors and its Chairman, expects to continue to be involved in the Issuer’s policies and activities.
Except as set forth herein and except for changes in the composition of the Board of Directors of the Issuer previously disclosed in the Registration Statement related to bringing the Board of Directors in compliance with the rules of the New York Stock Exchange regarding director independence in accordance with the transition rules related thereto, the Reporting Persons presently do not have any plans or proposals that relate to or would result in:
