CUSIP No. 50181P100

 

Item 1.

Security and Issuer

This Schedule 13D relates to shares of common stock, without par value, of LCNB Corp., an Ohio corporation (the “Issuer”). The Issuer’s principal executive office is located at 2 North Broadway, Lebanon, Ohio 45036.

 

Item 2.

Identity and Background

This Schedule 13D is jointly filed by John C. Lame and Susan K. Lame, Mr. Lame’s spouse, in their capacities as co-trustees of the John C. Lame and Susan K. Lame Irrevocable Trust u/a dated May 18, 2018 (the “Trust”); the John C. Lame IRA (the “IRA”); and the John C. Lame Roth Contributory IRA (the “Roth IRA,” and collectively, the “Reporting Persons”).

Mr. Lame is a citizen of the United States and his principal occupation is Chief Executive Officer of Untapped, LLC, a limited liability company. The principal business of Untapped, LLC is life guidance and wealth coaching.

Ms. Lame is a citizen of the United States and her principal occupation is special projects manager, Untapped, LLC. The principal business of Untapped, LLC is life guidance and wealth coaching.

The Trust is an irrevocable trust established by John C. Lame and Susan K. Lame for estate planning purposes. The IRA and Roth IRA are retirement accounts established by Mr. Lame.

The address of each Reporting Person for purposes of this filing is: 8805 Tamiami Trail N. #128, Naples, Florida 34108.

By virtue of these relationships and pursuant to the beneficial ownership rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Reporting Persons may be deemed to be members of a group.

The Reporting Persons have not, during the past 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 a finding of any violation with respect to such laws.

 

Item 3.

Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration

Item 3 is hereby amended and restated to read as follows:

The Trust purchased shares of the Issuer’s common stock using Trust funds. Commencing August 2, 2021, some of the shares purchased by the Trust were purchased through a margin account with Charles Schwab & Co., Inc. Shares of the Issuer’s common stock held in the Trust margin account are held as collateral for repayment of the margin debt, and accordingly an indeterminate portion of the margin debt at any given point in time is attributable to the Issuer’s common stock held by the Trust. Shares of the Issuer’s common stock held directly by the Trust, IRA and Roth IRA were acquired directly by these reporting persons. Shares of the Issuer are listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “LCNB”.

 

Item 4.

Purpose of the Transaction

This Amendment No. 1 amends the Schedule 13D filed on July 30, 2021, as specifically set forth herein. This Amendment No. 1 is being filed to reflect a change in the percentage of outstanding shares of the Issuer held by the Reporting Persons resulting from the Issuer’s share repurchase activity and the additional 116,600 shares acquired by the Reporting Persons through open-market purchases. Combined, these actions had an aggregate effect of increasing Reporting Persons’ beneficial ownership by 1.02% of the outstanding shares of the Issuer from that previously reported. As of the original filing of the Schedule 13D, the Reporting Persons collectively owned 648,400 shares of the Issuer’s common stock, which represented 5.13% of the outstanding shares of the Issuer. The additional 116,600 shares represented an increase of less than 1% of the Issuer’s outstanding shares owned by the Reporting Persons.

 

5


CUSIP No. 50181P100

 

However, as a result of recent repurchase activity by the Issuer, the aggregate change in the percentage of outstanding shares of the Issuer that the Reporting Persons’ holding represents has increased to 6.15%, causing the need to file this Amendment No. 1. Item 4 is hereby amended and supplemented by adding the following.

John Lame has met with senior management of the Issuer and plans to continue to engage management and members of the Board of Directors in dialogue regarding his request to be appointed to the Issuer’s Board of Directors. Mr. Lame discussed the Issuer’s returns for shareholders over the last decade and the Issuer’s strategy for the creation of shareholder value. Mr. Lame has continued to maintain an open dialogue with senior management of the Issuer. While representatives of the Issuer have indicated consideration of certain suggestions made by Mr. Lame, John Lame plans to monitor closely the extent to which such suggestions are actually implemented.

The Reporting Persons reserve the right to purchase or otherwise acquire additional securities of the Issuer, or sell or otherwise dispose of any securities of the Issuer beneficially owned by them, in each case, in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions, to the extent deemed advisable in light of market conditions, subsequent developments affecting the Issuer and the general business and future prospects of the Issuer.

 

Item 5.

Interest in Securities of the Issuer

Item 5(a) – (b) is hereby amended as follows:

(a) – (b) According to the Issuer’s current report on Form 8-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 20, 2021, there were 12,434,084 shares of the Issuer’s common stock outstanding on September 30, 2021.
