Item 1. Security and Issuer.


This Amendment No. 3 (“Amendment No. 3”) amends and supplements the Schedule 13D/A filed with Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) by the undersigned Reporting Person on May 21, 2018. Except as specifically provided herein, this Amendment No. 3 does not modify any of the information previously reported in the Schedule 13D filed on June 6, 2017, and Amendments No. 1 and 2 filed on November 20, 2017 and May 21, 2018, respectively. The principal executive offices of ADMA Biologics, Inc. (the “Issuer”) are located at 465 State Route 17, Ramsey, New Jersey.


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


On July 8, 2018, Biotest AG (the “Grantor”) entered into an Amended and Restated Declaration of Trust (the “Declaration of Trust”) which, among other things, provided for the transfer of all shares of the Issuer owned by Grantor’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Biotest Pharmaceuticals Corporation (“BPC”), to The Biotest Divestiture Trust (the “Trust”) of which Eric Rosenbach, a U.S. citizen, is the Trustee. BPC is also indirectly owned by the Trust through its parent company, Biotest U.S. Corporation. The Trust was originally created to obtain the clearance from the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (“CFIUS”) of a sale of a controlling interest in Grantor by a foreign purchaser. The Reporting Person agreed as part of the CFIUS clearance process to transfer BPC to the Trust, which owned all of the shares of Issuer. In connection with the subsequent transfer of Issuer’s shares from BPC directly to the Trust, consummated on July 24, 2018, and as contemplated by the terms of the Declaration of Trust, the Trustee was given authority to deal with such shares, including the power to vote and transfer such shares. Neither the Grantor nor BPC continues to possess such rights. Additionally, the Trustee is required to divest the shares of the Issuer transferred into the Trust by BPC. The proceeds of the sale of such shares are to be distributed to the Grantor, net of specified costs and expenses of such sale.


As a result of such transfer, the Grantor and BPC are no longer the beneficial owners of any shares of the Issuer.


Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.


The Trust was created to facilitate the approval of CFIUS to the sale of control of the Grantor. 


Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.


The Reporting Person is no longer the beneficial owner of any shares of the Issuer as result of the transfer of such shares to the Trust.






After reasonable inquiry and to the best of my knowledge and belief, the undersigned Reporting Person certifies that the information set forth in this statement is true, complete and correct.
