This Amendment No. 1 to Schedule 13D (“Amendment No. 1”) amends and supplements the information set forth in the Schedule 13D filed by (i) James H. Dahl and (ii) Rainey E. Lancaster (each, a “Reporting Person” and collectively, the “Reporting Persons”) with the SEC on May 20, 2021 (the “Schedule 13D”) relating to the Common Stock, par value $0.10 per share (“Shares”) of AMREP Corporation (the “Issuer”), having a principal executive office at 620 West Germantown Pike, Suite 175, Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania 19462. All capitalized terms contained herein but not otherwise defined shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Schedule 13D. Except as specifically provided herein, this Amendment No. 1 does not modify any of the information previously reported in the Schedule 13D.

   

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

 

Item 3 of the Schedule 13D is amended and restated to read as follows:

 

The Reporting Persons may be deemed to beneficially own 611,307 Shares, in aggregate. The amount and source of the funds for the transactions pursuant to which the Reporting Persons may be deemed to beneficially own such Shares were approximately $6,490,666.87 in aggregate purchase price for 611,307 Shares, derived from: (i) in the case of James H.

Lancaster, personal funds of Rainey E. Lancaster.

 

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.

 

Item 4 of the Schedule 13D is supplemented by adding the following:

 

Since purchasing shares of the Issuer, the Reporting Persons have considered the best possible ways to maximize shareholder value. The Issuer owns some of the best developable land in the Albuquerque metropolitan area, specifically Rio Rancho, New Mexico. The Issuer would benefit from increased scale to fully capture the value of the assets. The Reporting Persons believe the best way to maximize returns is through a strategic merger or sale.

 

As stated in the Schedule 13D, 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 investment strategy, the price levels of the Shares, conditions in the securities markets and general economic and industry conditions, the Reporting Persons may in the future take such actions with respect to their investments in the Issuer as they deem appropriate including, without limitation, engaging or continuing to engage in communications with management and the Board of Directors of the Issuer, engaging in discussions, understandings or agreements with shareholders of the Issuer or other third parties about the Issuer and the investments of the Reporting Persons or the voting of Shares, purchasing additional Shares, selling some or all of their respective Shares, engaging in short selling of or any hedging or similar transaction with respect to Shares, including swaps and other derivative instruments, or changing their intention with respect to any and all matters referred to in Item 4.
