Item 1. Security and Issuer.

 

This Statement of Beneficial Ownership on Schedule 13D (this “Schedule 13D”) relates to the common stock, par value $0.0005 per share (“Common Stock”), of ProPhase Labs, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Issuer”). The principal executive offices of the Issuer are located at 621 North Shady Retreat Road, Doylestown, PA 18901.

 

Item 2. Identity and Background.

 

This Schedule 13D is being filed by Mark Leventhal (the “Reporting Person”). The address of the Reporting Person is 621 North Shady Retreat Road, Doylestown, PA 18901. The Reporting Person is a United States citizen. The Reporting Person is currently a Director of the Issuer and his principal occupation is as a real estate investor. The Reporting Person has not, during the last five years (i) been convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors), or (ii) been a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction and as a result of such proceeding was or is subject to a judgment, decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or finding any violations with respect to such laws.

 

Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

 

The Reporting Person acquired all of the shares of Common Stock reported as beneficially owned by the Reporting Person with personal funds or as equity based grants from the Issuer for his service as a Director. At the time the Reporting Person was elected and seated as a Director of the Issuer in June 2009, the Reporting Person beneficially owned 240,000 shares of Common Stock that he had obtained in open market transactions. Since he joined the Board of Directors, the Reporting Person has received an aggregate of 62,180 shares of Common Stock as restricted stock grants from the Issuer for his service on the Board of Directors. The remaining 710,000 shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by the Reporting Person were purchased in several open market transactions with an aggregate purchase price of approximately $991,075, excluding brokerage commissions.

 

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.

 

As provided above, the Reporting Person is a Director of the Issuer. As such, he participates in meetings and decision-making of the Board of Directors. By virtue of his positions with the Issuer and his stock ownership, he may be deemed to control the Issuer. The Reporting Person may from time to time develop plans respecting, or propose changes in, the management, composition of the Board of Directors, policies, operations, capital structure or business of the Issuer. The Reporting Person reserves the right to change his current plans and intentions, which may include a decision not to acquire additional securities of the Issuer (through options, warrants, or otherwise), or to sell some or all of his Common Stock in the open market, in private transactions, or otherwise. Except as set forth in this Item 4, the Reporting Person has no present plans or proposals that relate to or that would result in, any of the actions specified in clauses (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D. The Reporting Person intends to review his investment in the Issuer on a continuing basis. Future acquisitions of securities of the Issuer will depend, among other things, on market and economic conditions, the Reporting Person’s overall investment strategies and capital availability and applicable regulatory and legal constraints, and there can be no assurance that the Reporting Person will acquire additional securities of the Issuer.

 

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.
