CUSIP No. 55261F 10 4    Schedule 13D   

 

Amendment No. 21 to Schedule 13D

The Schedule 13D, dated May 8, 1980, as amended, of the Estate of Robert G. Wilmers, Elisabeth Roche Wilmers, Wilmers Company, L.L.C., R.I. REM Investments, S.A., Camden LLC, which acquired Shares (as defined below) indirectly from Mallarme Investments Limited (“Mallarme”), Voltaire Holdings LLC, which acquired Shares as a capital contribution indirectly from Mallarme, Roche Foundation, Inc. and Interlaken Foundation, Inc., (collectively referred to as the “Reporting Persons”) is hereby amended as set forth below.

The purposes of this Amendment No. 21 to the Schedule 13D (the “Amendment”) are to reflect that (i) on March 3, 2017, Mallarme transferred indirectly 628,064 shares of M&T Bank Corporation (“M&T”) common stock, par value $.50 per share (“Shares”), to Camden LLC; (ii) on May 31, 2017, Mallarme transferred indirectly its remaining 2,654,816 Shares to Voltaire Holdings LLC and (iii) to reflect the addition of Camden LLC and Voltaire Holdings LLC as Reporting Persons and the removal of Mallarme as a Reporting Person. This filing is also being made to report that on November 27, 2017, Robert G. Wilmers resigned as trustee of the Robert G. Wilmers 1999 Family Trust (the “1999 Family Trust”) and the Robert G. Wilmers 2000 Family Trust (the “2000 Family Trust”) and as a result, the 1999 Family Trust and the 2000 Family Trust are no longer Reporting Persons for the purposes of this Schedule 13D. Finally, this filing is being made to report the passing of Robert G. Wilmers, formerly a Reporting Person, which occurred on December 16, 2017 and the consequent cessation of the Reporting Persons as a “group.”

With the passing of Mr. Wilmers the Reporting Persons will no longer be subject to the joint filing agreement under Rule 13d-1(k) of the Securities and Exchange Commission. This Amendment constitutes the “exit filing” of the Reporting Persons.

This Amendment No. 21 to Schedule 13D should be read in conjunction with, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to, the original Schedule 13D and Amendments Nos. 1 through 20 thereto.

 

Item 2. Identity and Background

Item 2 of the Schedule 13D is amended to add the following:

Camden LLC

Camden LLC is a New York limited liability company. It was formed by the Camden Trust, a New York law trust which was created by the Mallarme Trust. The Mallarme Trust is also the sole shareholder of Mallarme. Camden LLC was formed for the purpose of holding some of the investments of Mallarme, including 628,064 Shares, distributed by gift from the Mallarme Trust to the Camden Trust. The principal address of Camden LLC is 125 Broad Street, New York, NY 10004. William E. Frears is the sole manager of Camden LLC.

Voltaire Holdings LLC was formed for the purpose of holding the legal title to certain investments of Mallarme, including 2,654,816 Shares that were previously held by Mallarme. The principal address of Voltaire Holdings LLC is 350 Park Ave, 6th Floor, New York, NY 10022. Steven Ward Allen is the sole manager of Voltaire Holdings LLC.
