This amendment No. 5 to Schedule 13D (this “Amendment No. 4”), amends and supplements the Schedule 13D filed on June 10, 2020 (as amended, the “Initial 13D”) by the Reporting Persons, relating to the common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), of VolitionRx Limited, a Delaware corporation (the “Issuer”). Capitalized terms not defined in this Amendment No. 5 shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Initial 13D.

 

The information set forth in response to each separate Item below shall be deemed to be a response to all Items where such information is relevant. Except as specifically amended by this Amendment No. 5, the Initial 13D is unchanged.

  

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction

 

Item 4 of the Initial 13D is hereby amended and supplemented by the addition of the following:

 

“On July 9, 2020, certain of the Reporting Persons issued a press release relating to the delivery of a letter to the board of directors of the Issuer relating to, among other things, the voting results of the Issuer’s recent 2020 Annual Meeting and the Issuer’s path forward. The letter demands increased management transparency, including a publicly communicated timeline to commercialization and material Issuer revenue by the end of 2020. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 3 and incorporated by reference in this Item 4 in its entirety.”

 

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer

 

Paragraphs (a), (b) and (c) of Item 5 of the Initial 13D is hereby amended and restated as follows:

 

(a) As of the date hereof, (i) ECL may be deemed to beneficially own an aggregate of 11,976,263 shares of Common Stock, constituting approximately 25.9% of the Common Stock, (ii) Cotterford may be deemed to beneficially own an aggregate of 11,637,844, constituting approximately 25.2% of the Common Stock, and (iii) Hever may be deemed to beneficially own an aggregate of 338,419 shares of Common Stock, constituting approximately 0.7% of the Common Stock, as reported in the Issuer’s Prospectus Supplement filed with the SEC on May 21, 2020, (File No. 333-227248) (the “Prospectus), which includes both the shares offered under that Prospectus and the underwriters’ option. The Initial 13D contained a calculation error which indicated that ECL owned an additional 69,069 shares of Common Stock.

 

(b) ECL may be deemed to have the shared power to vote or direct the vote of (and the shared power to dispose or direct the disposition of) 11,976,263 Shares. Cotterford may be deemed to have the shared power to vote or direct the vote of (and the shared power to dispose or direct the disposition of) 11,637,844 Shares. Hever may be deemed to have the shared power to vote or direct the vote of (and the shared power to dispose or direct the disposition of) 338,419 Shares. The Directors of ECL identified in Item 2(a) of the Initial 13D, hold shared dispositive and voting control over the shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by ECL.

 

(c) There have been no transactions by the Reporting Persons in the securities of the Issuer within the past sixty days.
