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

Concurrently with the execution of the Purchase Agreement (as defined and described in Item 4), Janel entered into a Tender and Voting Agreement (each, a “Tender and Voting Agreement”), with each of Aldebaran Capital, LLC, Bandera Master Fund, L.P., Sententia Capital Management LLC and Poplar Point Capital Management, LLC (each, a “Principal Stockholder,” and together, the “Principal Stockholders”), and Issuer. Janel has not paid any consideration in connection with the execution and delivery of the Tender and Voting Agreements.
 
None of the Reporting Persons, including Janel, directly own any Shares. However, as described in Item 4 of this Schedule 13D, as a result of the Reporting Persons’ entry into the Tender and Voting Agreements, based on information provided by the Principal Stockholders, as of July 1, 2022, an aggregate of 675,263 Shares (representing approximately 27.6% of the Shares outstanding) are subject to the Tender and Voting Agreements.
 
The foregoing description of each Tender and Voting Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to each Tender and Voting Agreement, which are attached as Exhibits 3, 4, 5 and 6 and incorporated herein by reference.
 
Item 4.
Purpose of Transaction.
 
Purchase and Sale Agreement
 
On July 1, 2022, Janel and Issuer entered into a Stock Purchase and Sale Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”), pursuant to which Janel will commence a tender offer (the “Offer”) to acquire 45.0% of the issued and outstanding Shares of Issuer’s common stock on a fully diluted basis, at a price per Share of $20.00 (such per Share amount, the “Offer Price”).
 
The purpose of the offer is for Janel to acquire a significant ownership interest in Rubicon, together with representation on Rubicon’s Board, in an attempt to (i) rejuvenate, reposition and restructure Rubicon’s business and brand by focusing on its profitable business line and implementing a lower cost structure to achieve profitability and (ii) allow Janel to be in a position to potentially more easily acquire such number of additional Shares of Rubicon three or more years thereafter that would, after which, should such transaction occur, permit Janel to consolidate the financial statements of Rubicon’s with its own, thereby allowing Janel to benefit from Rubicon’s significant net operating loss (“NOL”) carry-forward assets. Under federal tax laws, Janel would then be able to carry forward and use these NOLs to reduce its future U.S. taxable income and tax liabilities until such NOLs expire in accordance with the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. Rubicon’s NOLs can thus potentially provide a benefit to Janel, if fully utilized, of significant future tax savings. Janel’s obligation to accept for payment and pay for any Shares tendered in the Offer and not validly withdrawn is subject to certain conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement, including (i) there being validly tendered and not withdrawn prior to the expiration date that number of Shares which represents at least 35.0% of the Shares issued and outstanding on a fully diluted basis (the “Minimum Condition”), (ii) the absence of a Company Material Adverse Effect (as defined the Purchase Agreement), (iii) the purchase of the Shares pursuant to the Offer would not result, or not be reasonably likely to result, in a reduction or impairment of the net operating losses of the Issuer under the provisions of Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, and (iv) other conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement. If the Offer is consummated, Janel will be entitled to designate two individuals to serve on the four-member board of directors of Issuer.
 
The foregoing description of the Purchase Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Purchase Agreement, which is attached as Exhibit 2 and is incorporated herein by reference.
 
Tender and Voting Agreement
 

CUSIP No. 78112T206
13D
Page 7 of 11
Each Tender and Voting Agreement was entered into as a condition and inducement to the willingness of Janel to enter into the Purchase Agreement and to increase the likelihood that the Minimum Condition will be satisfied. Pursuant to the Tender and Voting Agreements, the Principal Stockholders party thereto agreed to validly tender to Janel pursuant to and in accordance with the terms of the Offer, an aggregate of 675,263 Shares of Issuer common stock beneficially owned by the Principal Stockholders on the date of each Tender and Voting Agreement (the “Existing Shares”), subject to proration for tenders by other stockholders, and not to withdraw the Existing Shares from the Offer. If any Principal Stockholder acquires beneficial ownership of any additional outstanding Shares of Issuer’s common stock after the date of such Tender and Voting Agreement to which it is a party and prior to the termination of the Tender and Voting Agreement (together with the Existing Shares, the “TO Shares”), such Principal Stockholder agrees to validly tender such TO Shares to Janel in accordance with the Offer, and in any event prior to the expiration date of the Offer. Each Principal Stockholder agreed not to withdraw any TO Shares so tendered unless the Tender and Voting Agreement to which such Principal Stockholder is a party or the Offer is terminated or otherwise terminates in accordance with its terms. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Principal Stockholder may decline to tender, or may withdraw, any and all of such Principal Stockholder’s TO Shares if, without the consent of such Principal Stockholder, Janel amends the Offer to (i) reduce the Offer Price for the TO Shares in the Offer, (ii) reduce the number of Shares of Issuer’s common stock subject to the Offer, (iii) change the form of consideration payable in the Offer (iv) change the “Minimum Condition,” which is contemplated to require tender of 35.0% of the fully diluted Shares of Issuer’s common stock, or (v) amend or modify any term or condition of the Offer in a manner adverse to such Principal Stockholder.
 
In addition, during the term of the Tender and Voting Agreements, each Principal Stockholder irrevocably agreed to vote the TO Shares at any meeting of the holders of Issuer’s common stock, or in connection with any written consent of the holders of Issuer’s common stock: (i) in favor of approving the transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement and the Tender and Voting Agreement to which it is a party and any actions required in furtherance thereof (the “Transactions”); (ii) in favor of an amendment to the certificate of incorporation and bylaws of Issuer to implement a restriction to prevent any new stockholders from acquiring shares representing 4.9% or more of the outstanding Shares of Issuer’s common stock (the “Acquisition Restrictions”), (iii) against the following actions, agreements or transactions (other than the Transactions): (A) any extraordinary corporate transaction, such as a merger, consolidation or other business combination involving Issuer or any of its subsidiaries, (B) a sale, lease or transfer of a material amount of assets of Issuer or any of its subsidiaries, or a reorganization, recapitalization, dissolution or liquidation of Issuer or any of its subsidiaries, (C) (1) any change in a majority of the persons who constitute the Board of Directors of Issuer, (2) any change in the present capitalization of Issuer or any amendment of the organizational documents of Issuer (other than the Acquisition Restrictions), (3) any other material change in Issuer's corporate structure or business or (4) any other action which, in the case of each of the matters referred to in clauses (C)(1), (2) or (3), is intended or could reasonably be expected to impede, interfere with, delay, postpone, discourage, frustrate the purpose of or adversely affect the Transactions contemplated by the Tender and Voting Agreement and the Purchase Agreement (collectively, the “Proxy Matters”).
 
Each Principal Stockholder irrevocably appointed Janel and each of its executive officers, in their capacities as officers of Janel (the “Grantees”), as such Principal Stockholder’s proxy and attorney-in-fact, to vote the TO Shares in accordance with the Tender and Voting Agreements and in the discretion of the Grantees as to the Proxy Matters only. Each Principal Stockholder retains the right to vote the TO Shares in such Principal Stockholder’s sole discretion and without any other limitation on all matters. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the proxy granted by each Principal Stockholder will be revoked upon termination of the Tender and Voting Agreement to which such Principal Stockholder is a party in accordance with its terms. If a Principal Stockholder is not the record owner of all the TO Shares, such Principal Stockholder agrees to cause the record owner thereof to execute and grant an irrevocable proxy conforming to the above provisions.
 
The foregoing description of the Tender and Voting Agreements is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of each Tender and Voting Agreement, which are attached as Exhibits 3, 4, 5 and 6 and are incorporated herein by reference.
 
Item 5.
Interest in Securities of the Issuer.
 
(a) and (b) None of the Reporting Persons, including Janel, directly own any Shares. However, as described in Item 4 of this Schedule 13D, as a result of the Tender and Voting Agreements, based on information provided by the Principal Stockholders, as of July 1, 2022, an aggregate of 675,263 Shares (representing approximately 27.6% of the Shares outstanding) are subject to the Tender and Voting Agreements. Of the 675,263 Shares, the Reporting Persons do not have sole voting or dispositive power with respect to any Shares and may be deemed to have shared voting and dispositive power with respect to all such Shares. The Reporting Persons may be deemed to share with the signatories of the Tender and Voting Agreements the power to vote the subject Shares with respect to certain matters described in the Tender and Voting Agreement, in particular the Proxy Matters. The Reporting Persons also may be deemed to share with the Principal Stockholders the power to dispose of the subject Shares solely to the extent the Tender and Voting Agreements restrict the ability of the Principal Stockholders to transfer the subject Shares. The information set forth in Item 4 of this Schedule 13D is incorporated herein by reference.

(c) Except for the agreements described in this Schedule 13D, no transactions in the class of securities reported have been effected during the past 60 days by Janel or, to the knowledge of the Reporting Persons, any person listed in Schedule A to this Schedule 13D.
