APOLLO MEDICAL HOLDINGS, INC.
This prospectus relates to the resale, from time to time, of up to 520,081 shares (the “Covered Shares”) of common stock, $0.001 par value per share (the “Common Stock”) of Apollo Medical Holdings, Inc. (“ApolloMed”), by the Selling Stockholder identified in this prospectus under the heading “Selling Stockholder” (the “Selling Stockholder”). On March 30, 2017, ApolloMed entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Alliance Purchase Agreement”) with Alliance Apex, LLC (“Alliance”), pursuant to which Alliance loaned ApolloMed $4,990,000.00 and ApolloMed issued its Convertible Promissory Note (as amended, the “Alliance Note”) to Alliance. As more fully described in this prospectus under “Shares Covered by this Prospectus,” the Selling Stockholder acquired the Covered Shares from ApolloMed on December 11, 2017 as a result of the automatic conversion of the Alliance Note following the closing of ApolloMed’s reverse merger transaction with Network Medical Management (“NMM”) on December 8, 2017, pursuant to that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of December 21, 2016 among ApolloMed, Apollo Acquisition Corp., NMM and Kenneth Sim, as the Shareholders’ Representative. We are registering the offer and sale of the Covered Shares to satisfy registration rights that ApolloMed has granted to the Selling Stockholder pursuant to the terms of the Alliance Purchase Agreement, as more fully described in this prospectus under “Shares Covered by this Prospectus.”
We are not offering any shares of the Common Stock under this prospectus or any accompanying prospectus supplement, and will not receive any proceeds from the sale or other disposition of the Covered Shares by the Selling Stockholder.
The Selling Stockholder (which term, as used herein includes donees, pledgees, assignees, transferees or other successors-in-interest selling any of the Covered Shares or interests therein received after the date of this prospectus as part of a gift, pledge or other permitted transfer) may from time to time sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of any or all of the Covered Shares or interests therein through public or private transactions (i) at fixed prices, (ii) at prevailing market prices at the time of sale or prices related thereto, and/or (iii) at varying prices determined at the time of sale or at negotiated prices. The timing and amount of any such sale is within the sole discretion of the Selling Stockholder. We are bearing all of the expenses in connection with the registration of the Covered Shares, but all selling and other expenses, including commissions and discounts, if any, attributable to the sale or disposition of the Shares will be borne by the Selling Stockholder. See the “Plan of Distribution” section of this prospectus for more information about how the Selling Stockholder may sell the Covered Shares.
The Common Stock is listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “AMEH.” On February 22, 2019, the last reported sale price of the Common Stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market was $19.99 per share.
We may amend or supplement this prospectus from time to time by filing amendments or supplements as required. You should read the entire prospectus and any amendments or supplements carefully before you make your own investment decision.

In this prospectus and the information incorporated herein by reference, words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” and variations of such words or similar expressions are used to identify these forward-looking statements. Actual results may differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements as a result of various important factors. These risks are described in greater detail in the section entitled “Risk Factors” of this prospectus. Many of these factors that will determine actual results are beyond our ability to control or predict. If one or more of these factors materialize, or if any underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results, performance or achievements may vary materially from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. In addition, any forward-looking statements in this prospectus represent our views only as of the date of this prospectus and should not be relied upon as representing our views as of any subsequent date. We anticipate that subsequent events and developments will cause our views to change. However, while we may elect to update these forward-looking statements publicly at some point in the future, we specifically disclaim any obligation to do so, except as may be required by law, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Our forward-looking statements generally do not reflect the potential impact of any future acquisitions, mergers, dispositions, joint ventures or investments we may make.
Please refer to the section entitled “Risk Factors” of this prospectus, and any other risk factors set forth in any accompanying prospectus supplement and in any information incorporated by reference in this prospectus or any accompanying prospectus supplement to better understand the risks and uncertainties inherent in our business and underlying any forward-looking statements, as well as any other risk factors and cautionary statements described in the documents we file from time to time with the SEC, specifically ApolloMed’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, Definitive Proxy Statements on Schedule 14A and Current Reports on Form 8-K, including sections therein titled “Risk Factors” and “Note About Forward-Looking Statements,” respectively.

We, together with our affiliated physician groups and consolidated entities, are a physician-centric integrated population health management company providing coordinated, outcomes-based medical care in a cost-effective manner and serving patients in California, the majority of whom are covered by private or public insurance provided through Medicare, Medicaid and health maintenance organizations (“HMOs”), with a small portion of our revenue coming from non-insured patients. We provide care coordination services to each major constituent of the healthcare delivery system, including patients, families, primary care physicians, specialists, acute care hospitals, alternative sites of inpatient care, physician groups and health plans. Our physician network consists of primary care physicians, specialist physicians and hospitalists. We operate primarily through Apollo Medical Holdings, Inc. and the following subsidiaries: Network Medical Management, Inc., Apollo Medical Management, Inc., APA ACO, Inc. and Apollo Care Connect, Inc., and their consolidated entities, including consolidated variable interest entities.
Led by a management team with over twenty years of experience, we have built a company and culture that is focused on physicians providing high-quality medical care, population health management and care coordination for patients. We believe that we are well-positioned to take advantage of the growing trends in the U.S. healthcare industry towards value-based and results-oriented healthcare focusing on the triple aim of patient satisfaction, high-quality care and cost efficiency. Through our next generation accountable care organization (“NGACO”) model and a network of independent practice associations (“IPAs”) with more than 4,000 contracted physicians, which physician groups have agreements with various health plans, hospitals and other HMOs, we are currently responsible for coordinating the care for over 800,000 patients in California. These covered patients are comprised of managed care members whose health coverage is provided through their employers or who have acquired health coverage directly from a health plan or as a result of their eligibility for Medicaid or Medicare benefits. Our managed patients benefit from an integrated approach that places physicians at the center of patient care and utilizes sophisticated risk management techniques and clinical protocols to provide high-quality, cost effective care. To implement a patient-centered, physician-centric experience, we also have other integrated and synergistic operations, including (i) a management service organization that provides management and other services to our affiliated IPAs, (ii) outpatient clinics and (iii) hospitalists that coordinate the care of patients in hospitals.

Investing in our securities involves significant risks. Before making an investment decision, with respect to any of our securities, you should carefully consider the information set forth in this prospectus and the specific risks discussed under the heading “Risk Factors” in any applicable prospectus supplement and in the documents incorporated by reference into this prospectus, including ApolloMed’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, as revised or supplemented by its subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q or Current Reports on Form 8-K on file with the SEC, all of which are incorporated herein by reference, and which may be amended, supplemented or superseded from time to time by other reports we file with the SEC in the future.

The occurrence of any of these risks could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects. As a result, the value of our securities could decline and you could lose part or all of your investment therein.

ApolloMed was incorporated in the State of Delaware on November 1, 1985 under the name McKinnely Investment, Inc. On November 5, 1986, McKinnely Investment, Inc. changed its name to Acculine Industries, Incorporated and the company thereafter changed its name to Siclone Industries, Incorporated on May 24, 1988. In 2008, Apollo Medical Management, Inc. (“AMM”) merged into a wholly-owned subsidiary of Siclone Industries, Incorporated, and the surviving entity simultaneously changed its name to Apollo Medical Holdings, Inc. ApolloMed was a shell company (as defined Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act) prior to the 2008 merger.
An Agreement and Plan of Merger was entered into, as of December 21, 2016 (as subsequently amended on March 30, 2017 and on October 17, 2017), by and among ApolloMed, Apollo Acquisition Corp., a wholly-owned subsidiary of ApolloMed, Network Medical Management, Inc. (“NMM”), and Kenneth Sim, M.D. (in his capacity as the representative of the shareholders of NMM), pursuant to which ApolloMed effected a merger with NMM (the “Merger”). The Merger closed and became effective on December 8, 2017. As of the closing the Merger, NMM became a wholly-owned subsidiary of ApolloMed and the former NMM shareholders owned a majority of the issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock immediately following the Merger, the majority of the board of directors of the combined company was comprised of former NMM directors and directors nominated for election by NMM, and ApolloMed’s fiscal year end was changed from March 31 to December 31 to correspond with NMM’s fiscal year end prior to the Merger. For accounting purposes, the Merger is treated as a “reverse acquisition,” and NMM is considered the accounting acquirer and ApolloMed is the accounting acquiree.
The combined Company, following the Merger, together with its affiliated physician groups and consolidated entities, is a physician-centric integrated population health management company providing coordinated, outcomes-based medical care in a cost-effective manner and serving patients in California, the majority of whom are covered by private or public insurance provided through Medicare, Medicaid and HMOs. A small portion of the Company’s revenue is generated from non-insured patients. The Company provides care coordination services to each major constituent of the healthcare delivery system, including patients, families, primary care physicians, specialists, acute care hospitals, alternative sites of inpatient care, physician groups and health plans. The Company’s physician network consists of primary care physicians, specialist physicians and hospitalists. The Company operates primarily through the following wholly-owned subsidiaries of ApolloMed: NMM, AMM, APA ACO, Inc. (“APAACO”) and Apollo Care Connect, Inc. (“Apollo Care Connect”), and their consolidated entities, including consolidated variable interest entities.
NMM was formed in 1994 as a management service organization for the purposes of providing management services to medical companies and IPAs. The management services include primarily billing, collection, accounting, administrative, quality assurance, marketing, compliance and education.
In accordance with relevant accounting guidance, Allied Physicians of California IPA, a Professional Medical Corporation d.b.a. Allied Pacific of California IPA (“APC”) has been determined to be a variable interest entity (“VIE”) of, and therefore is consolidated by, NMM and ApolloMed as it was determined that NMM is the primary beneficiary of APC and has the ability to direct the activities (excluding clinical decisions) that most significantly affect APC’s economic performance through NMM’s majority representation on APC’s Joint Planning Board and NMM’s amended and restated management and administrative services agreement with APC that was entered into on July 1, 1999 for an initial term of 30 years. ApolloMed and its subsidiaries do not have any ownership interest in APC, and as of September 30, 2018, APC has a 4.85% ownership interest in ApolloMed. APC was formed in 1992 for the purpose of arranging health care services as an IPA. APC arranges for the delivery of health care services for various HMOs or licensed health care service plans, which in return pay fixed fees to APC, by contracting with physicians or professional medical corporations for primary care and specialty care services. Subject to contractual stop-loss provisions, APC assumes the financial risk of the cost of delivering health care services in excess of the fixed amounts received (while some of the risk is transferred to APC’s contractors). As of September 30, 2018, APC holds a 43.43% ownership interest in Concourse Diagnostic Surgery Center, LLC (“CDSC”), an ambulatory surgery center. CDSC is consolidated as a VIE by APC as it was determined that APC has a controlling financial interest in CDSC and is the primary beneficiary of CDSC. APC also holds a 40% ownership interest in Pacific Ambulatory Surgery Center, LLC, a multi-specialty outpatient surgery center. Universal Care Acquisition Partners, LLC, a 100% owned subsidiary of APC, was formed in 2014 to hold an investment in Universal Care, Inc. APC-LSMA was formed in 2012 as a designated shareholder professional corporation, and Thomas Lam, M.D., a shareholder, director, co-Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of APC and a director and Co-CEO of ApolloMed, is a nominee shareholder of APC-LSMA on behalf of APC. In addition, Kenneth Sim, M.D., a director and the Executive Chairman of ApolloMed, is a director of APC. Because APC makes all the investment decisions on behalf of APC-LSMA, funds these investments, receives all the distributions from the investments, and has the obligation to absorb losses or rights to receive benefits from all the investments made by APC-LSMA, APC-LSMA has been determined to be a VIE of APC and is consolidated by APC as the primary beneficiary. The only activity of APC-LSMA is to act as the nominee shareholder for APC and hold the investments in other professional medical corporations, including AHMC International Cancer Center (“ICC”), Pacific Medical Imaging and Oncology Center, Inc., Diagnostic Medical Group and the IPA line of business of LaSalle Medical Associates. In conjunction with the Merger, ApolloMed sold to APC-LSMA all the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of Maverick Medical Group, Inc., which has historically been included in the consolidated financial statements filed by ApolloMed. ICC was formed in 2010 and has entered into agreements with HMOs, IPAs, medical groups and other purchasers of medical services for the arrangement of services to subscribers or enrollees. Effective in 2017, APC-LSMA acquired 40% of the issued and outstanding capital stock of ICC for $400,000. ICC has been determined to be a VIE of APC and is consolidated by APC as it was determined that APC is the primary beneficiary of ICC through its obligation to absorb losses and right to receive benefits that could potentially be significant to ICC.
AMM was formed in 2006 as a medical management company focused on managing the provision of hospital-based medicine through its affiliated medical groups, including ApolloMed Hospitalists (“AMH”) and Southern California Heart Centers (“SCHC”). AMH provides hospitalist, intensivist and physician advisor services. SCHC is a specialty clinic that focuses on cardiac care and diagnostic testing.
APAACO began participating in the next generation accountable care organization model (“NGACO Model”) of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”) in January 2017. The NGACO Model is a new CMS program that allows provider groups to assume higher levels of financial risk and potentially achieve a higher reward from participating in this new attribution-based risk sharing model. In addition to APAACO, NMM and AMM operated three accountable care organizations (“ACOs”) that participated in the CMS’ Medicare Shared Savings Program. Performance-based revenues from CMS are uncertain and are contingent on various factors, including achievement of the minimum savings rate for the relevant period. If such amounts are payable by CMS, they will be paid on an annual basis significantly after the time earned. As the Company is transitioning to the NGACO Model, patients and physicians with the three ACOs have substantially been transferred to APAACO.
Apollo Care Connect provides a cloud and mobile-based population health management platform that includes digital care plans, a case management module, connectivity with multiple healthcare tracking devices and the ability to integrate with multiple electronic health records to capture clinical data.
ApolloMed also owns Apollo Palliative Services, LLC, which in turn owns two palliative care service companies, Best Choice Hospice Care, LLC and Holistic Care Home Health Agency, Inc.
Assets recognized in ApolloMed’s financial statements as a result of consolidating VIEs for accounting purposes do not represent additional assets that could be used to satisfy claims against its general assets. Conversely, liabilities recognized as a result of consolidating VIEs for accounting purposes do not represent additional claims on ApolloMed’s general assets; rather, they represent claims against the specific assets of the VIE. ApolloMed evaluates its relationships with its VIEs on an ongoing basis to ensure that it (including the applicable subsidiary) continues to be the primary beneficiary.
DESCRIPTION OF THE COMMON STOCK
The following is a summary description of the Common Stock, which does not purport to be complete and is summarized from, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to, ApolloMed’s Restated Certificate of Incorporation Restated Bylaws, Certificate of Designation and Amended and Restated Certificate of Designation, to which you should refer and copies of which are incorporated herein by reference as Exhibits 3.1 - 3.4, 3.5 - 3.7, 4.1 and 4.2, respectively, and to the registration statement on Form S-3 of which this prospectus forms a part. The summary below is also qualified by provisions of applicable law, including the Delaware General Corporation Law, and ApolloMed’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, Registration Statement on Form S-4 filed on August 11, 2017, the Amendments No.1, No.2 and No.3 thereto on Form S-4/A filed on October 30, 2017, November 9, 2017 and November 9, 2017, respectively, Rule 424(b)(3) prospectus filed on November 15, 2017, as well as ApolloMed’s Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A filed on April 30, 2018.
The holders of the Common Stock are entitled to one vote per share on matters on which ApolloMed’s stockholders vote. Pursuant to ApolloMed’s Restated Bylaws, the presence of holders of a majority of all the shares of ApolloMed stock entitled to vote at the meeting is necessary to constitute a quorum, unless or except to the extent that the presence of a larger number may be required by law. Stockholders present in person or by proxy will be counted for purposes of determining whether a quorum is present. If a quorum is present, an action by stockholders entitled to vote on a matter is approved if the number of votes cast in favor of the action exceeds the number of votes cast in opposition to the action, with the exception of the election of directors. An election of directors by ApolloMed’s stockholders shall be determined by a plurality of the votes cast by the stockholders entitled to vote on the election. There are no cumulative voting rights. Pursuant to ApolloMed’s Restated Bylaws, any action which may be taken at a meeting of the stockholders may be taken by written consent without a meeting if taken in conformance with the Delaware General Corporation Law. Subject to any preferential dividend rights of any outstanding shares of ApolloMed’s preferred stock, holders of the Common Stock are entitled to receive dividends, if declared by ApolloMed’s board of directors, out of legally available funds. If ApolloMed liquidates or dissolves, holders of the Common Stock are entitled to share ratably in its assets once its debts and any liquidation preference owed to any of ApolloMed’s then-outstanding preferred stockholders are paid. ApolloMed’s Restated Certificate of Incorporation does not provide the Common Stock with any redemption, conversion or preemptive rights. The rights, preferences and privileges of holders of the Common Stock are subject to and may be adversely affected by the rights of the holders of any series of ApolloMed’s then-outstanding preferred stock.
NMM currently owns all the shares of ApolloMed Series A preferred stock (1,111,111 shares) and Series B preferred stock (555,555 shares), which were acquired by NMM prior to the Merger. As NMM is a wholly-owned subsidiary of ApolloMed, pursuant to the Delaware General Corporation Law, such shares held by NMM shall neither be entitled to vote, nor be counted for quorum purposes, with respect to ApolloMed’s stockholder actions.
The Series A preferred stock and the Series B preferred stock of ApolloMed have a liquidation preference in the amount of $9.00 per share plus any declared and unpaid dividends and are convertible into the Common Stock, at the option of the holder thereof, at any time after issuance at an initial conversion rate of one-for-one, subject to adjustment in the event of stock dividends, stock splits and certain other similar transactions.
ApolloMed is subject to Section 203 of the Delaware General Corporation Law, which makes the acquisition of ApolloMed and the removal of its incumbent officers and directors more difficult for potential acquirers by prohibiting stockholders holding 15% or more of its outstanding voting stock from acquiring it without the consent of its board of directors for at least three years from the date they first hold 15% or more of the voting stock. These provisions and others that could be adopted in the future could deter unsolicited takeovers or delay or prevent changes in ApolloMed’s control or management, including transactions in which ApolloMed’s stockholders might otherwise receive a premium for their shares over then current market prices. These provisions may also limit the ability of ApolloMed’s stockholders to approve transactions that they may deem to be in their best interests.
ApolloMed’s Restated Certificate of Incorporation and Restated Bylaws contain additional provisions, such as the authorization for its board of directors to issue one or more classes of preferred stock and determine the rights, preferences and privileges of the preferred stock, which could cause substantial dilution to a person or group that attempts to acquire ApolloMed on terms not approved by the board, and the ownership requirement for ApolloMed’s stockholders to call special meetings, that could deter, discourage or make it more difficult for a change in control of ApolloMed or for a third party to acquire ApolloMed, even if such a change in control could be deemed in the interest of ApolloMed’s stockholders or if such an acquisition would provide ApolloMed’s stockholders with a substantial premium for their shares over the market price of the Common Stock.
These provisions could discourage a potential acquirer from acquiring ApolloMed or otherwise attempting to obtain its control and increase the likelihood that its incumbent directors and officers will retain their positions.
Transfer Agent and Registrar
The transfer agent and registrar for the Common Stock is Pacific Stock Transfer Company.
Stock Exchange Listing and Trading
The Common Stock is listed for quotation on the Nasdaq Capital Market, under the symbol “AMEH.” The price at which the Common Stock trades has been volatile, may be affected by a variety of factors (including the trading volume, our results of operations, the announcement and consummation of certain transactions, our ability or inability to raise capital and the terms thereof), and could fluctuate significantly. As a majority of the issued and outstanding shares of the Common Stock are, unless waived by us, subject to extensive lock-up requirements following the Merger, the Common Stock may continue to be thinly traded and its market price may remain volatile. Purchasers of the Common Stock, therefore, may not be able to sell their shares thereof at a profit and might incur losses.
The shares of the Common Stock being offered by this prospectus are solely for the account of the Selling Stockholder. We are not selling any shares of the Common Stock under this prospectus, and will not receive any proceeds from the sale of Covered Shares by the Selling Stockholder pursuant to this prospectus or any accompanying prospectus supplement. The Selling Stockholder will sell the Covered Shares in accordance with the “Plan of Distribution” section of this prospectus. The Selling Stockholder will receive all of the net proceeds from the sale of any Covered Shares offered by it under this prospectus. We have agreed to pay all costs, expenses and fees relating to registering the Covered Shares referenced in this prospectus. The Selling Stockholder will pay any fees, discounts, concessions or commissions of broker-dealers or agents, any applicable transfer taxes and any other expenses incurred in connection with the sale or other disposition by it of the shares covered hereby.
SHARES COVERED BY THIS PROSPECTUS
On March 30, 2017, ApolloMed entered into the Alliance Purchase Agreement with Alliance, pursuant to which Alliance loaned ApolloMed $4,990,000.00 and ApolloMed issued the Alliance Note to Alliance. The proceeds of the transaction were used by ApolloMed for working capital.
The entire then-outstanding principal of the Alliance Note and all accrued, unpaid interest thereon, was due and payable by ApolloMed to Alliance on (i) March 31, 2018, or (ii) the date on which the Change of Control Transaction (as defined in the Alliance Note) is terminated, whichever occurred first (the “Maturity Date”). Upon the closing, on or before the Maturity Date, of the Change of Control Transaction, the original principal amount of the Alliance Note, together with all accrued and unpaid interest thereon, would automatically be converted (a “Mandatory Conversion”) on the business day following such closing into shares of Common Stock, at a conversion price of $10.00 per share, subject to adjustment for stock splits, stock dividends, reclassifications and other similar recapitalization transactions that occur after the date of the Alliance Note.
On December 11, 2017, the business day following the closing of the Merger, which constituted a Change of Control Transaction under the Alliance Note, the Alliance Note automatically converted into 520,081 shares of Common Stock.
Pursuant to the Alliance Purchase Agreement, Alliance has been granted both “demand” and “piggyback” registration rights to register the shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Alliance Note, subject to a good faith, pro rata clawback provision.
We are registering the offer and sale of the Covered Shares to satisfy registration rights we have granted to the Selling Stockholder named below pursuant to the terms of the Alliance Purchase Agreement, as more fully described in this prospectus under “Shares Covered by this Prospectus.” Up to 520,081 shares of the Common Stock are being offered pursuant to this prospectus, all of which are being offered for resale for the account of the Selling Stockholder who may from time to time offer and sell pursuant to this prospectus any or all of the Covered Shares.
The table below presents information regarding (i) the name of, and other information with respect to, the Selling Stockholder, (ii) the number and percentage of the Common Stock beneficially owned by it prior to the offering, (iii) the Common Stock that it may sell or otherwise dispose of from time to time under this prospectus, and (iv) the number and percentage of the Common Stock that the Selling Stockholder will own (assuming all of the shares of the Common Stock covered by this prospectus are sold by the Selling Stockholder). The information in the table below is based on 34,279,248 shares of the Common Stock issued and outstanding as of February 25, 2019. This number includes the 520,081 shares of the Common Stock that the Selling Stockholder is offering pursuant to this prospectus, as supplied to us by the Selling Stockholder as of February 25, 2019. Beneficial ownership is determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act and generally includes voting or investment power with respect to securities (including any securities that grant the Selling Stockholder the right to acquire shares of the Common Stock within 60 days).
Other than as referred to herein and in documents filed by us with the SEC pursuant to Section 13(a), 13(c), 14 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act, the Selling Stockholder has not within the past three years had any position, office or other material relationship with ApolloMed or any of its subsidiaries other than as a holder of the Common Stock. Ms. Linda Marsh, the sole member and manager of the Selling Stockholder, has been a member of ApolloMed’s board of directors (the “Board”) since January 11, 2019. Ms. Marsh is not separately compensated by Alliance for her services to us as a member of the Board. Ms. Marsh is the co-CEO of NMM and of APC, both of which are ceremonial positions in which she has no ability to exercise control or influence over NMM, APC or the management of either of those entities. An entity affiliated with Ms. Marsh receives compensation in the amount of $25,000 per month (which is jointly paid by NMM and APC) for services provided to NMM and APC.
Because the Selling Stockholder identified in the table may sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of all, some or none of the Covered Shares (see the “Plan Of Distribution” section of this prospectus), and because there are currently no agreements, arrangements or understandings between us and the Selling Stockholder with respect to the sale of any of the Covered Shares, we cannot determine the number of such shares that will be sold, transferred or otherwise disposed of by the Selling Stockholder, or the amount or percentage of shares of the Common Stock that will be held by the Selling Stockholder upon termination of any particular offering. In addition, the Selling Stockholder may have sold, transferred or otherwise disposed of, or may sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of, at any time and from time to time, any such Covered Shares in transactions exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act after the date on which the Selling Stockholder supplied us with information used in preparation of the table below. We have, therefore, assumed for the purposes of the following table, that all of the Common Stock covered by this prospectus will be sold by the Selling Stockholder. Any prospectus supplement may add, update, substitute, or change the information contained in this prospectus, including the identity of the Selling Stockholder and the number of shares of the Common Stock registered on its behalf.
Except as otherwise indicated, we believe that the Selling Stockholder has sole voting and investment power with respect to all shares of the Common Stock shown as beneficially owned by it. The beneficial ownership information presented in this table is not necessarily indicative of beneficial ownership for any other purpose.

We are registering the Covered Shares to permit the offer and sale of these shares by the Selling Stockholder from time to time from after the date of this prospectus. We will not receive any of the proceeds from the sale by the Selling Stockholder of the Covered Shares. We will bear all fees and expenses incident to our obligation to register such shares. The Selling Stockholder may, from time to time, transfer or otherwise dispose of all, some or none of the shares of the Common Stock beneficially owned by it and offered hereby. The sales may be made on the Nasdaq Capital Market or any other stock exchange, market or trading facility on which the shares are listed or quoted at the time of sale or in private transactions. These sales may be at fixed prices, at prevailing market prices at the time of the sale, at prices related to prevailing market prices, at varying prices determined at the time of sale, or privately negotiated prices. The Selling Stockholder will act independently of us in making decisions regarding the timing, manner and size of each sale and may use one or more of, or a combination of methods, including without limitation, the following methods:
|•||one or more block trades in which the broker-dealer so engaged will attempt to sell the shares of common stock as agent but may position and resell a portion of the block as principal to facilitate the transaction;|
|•||purchases by a broker-dealer as principal and resale by such broker-dealer for its account;|
|•||ordinary brokerage transactions and transactions in which the broker-dealer solicits purchasers;|
|•||an exchange distribution in accordance with the rules of the applicable exchange;|
|•||in privately negotiated transactions;|
|•||in transactions through broker-dealers that agree with the Selling Stockholder to sell a specified number of such shares at a stipulated price per share;|
|•||purchases by underwriters, broker-dealers or agents, who may receive compensation in the form of underwriting discounts, commissions or concessions from the Selling Stockholder and/or from the purchasers for whom they may act as agent;|
|•||the writing or settlement of options or other hedging transactions, whether through an options exchange or otherwise; or|
|•||any other method permitted pursuant to applicable law.|
The Selling Stockholder may sell all or a portion of the Covered Shares in open market transactions in reliance upon Rule 144 under, or Section 4(a)(1) of, the Securities Act, if it meets the criteria and conforms to the requirements of such provisions, rather than under this prospectus.
The Selling Stockholder may effect such transactions by selling the shares to or through broker-dealers.
Broker-dealers engaged by the Selling Stockholder may arrange for other brokers-dealers to participate in sales. Broker-dealers may receive commissions or discounts from the Selling Stockholder (or, if any broker-dealer acts as agent for the purchaser of shares, from the purchaser) in amounts to be negotiated, but, except as set forth in a supplement to this prospectus, in the case of an agency transaction not in excess of a customary brokerage commission in compliance with FINRA Rule 2440, and in the case of a principal transaction a markup or markdown in compliance with FINRA IM-2440-1. The Selling Stockholder and any broker-dealers or agents that are involved in selling the shares of common stock may be deemed to be “underwriters” within the meaning of the Securities Act in connection with such sales. In such event, any commissions received and any profit on the resale of the shares purchased by them may be deemed to be underwriting commissions or discounts under the Securities Act. A person who is an “underwriter” within the meaning of Section 2(11) of the Securities Act will be subject to the prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act and may be subject to certain statutory liabilities of, including but not limited to, Sections 11, 12 and 17 of the Securities Act and Rule 10b-5 under the Exchange Act.
In connection with sales of the Covered Shares, the Selling Stockholder may enter into hedging transactions with broker-dealers. These broker-dealers may in turn engage in short sales of the Common Stock, short and deliver the Covered Shares to close out such short positions, or loan or pledge the Covered Shares to broker-dealers that may in turn sell such Covered Shares. The Selling Stockholder may also sell shares short and deliver these securities to close out its short positions, or loan or pledge the shares to broker-dealers that in turn may sell these securities. The Selling Stockholder may also enter into option or other transactions with broker-dealers or other financial institutions or the creation of one or more derivative securities which require the delivery to such broker-dealer or other financial institution of shares offered by this prospectus, which shares such broker-dealer or other financial institution may resell pursuant to this prospectus (as supplemented or amended to reflect such transaction).
The Selling Stockholder may pledge or grant a security interest in all or a portion of the Covered Shares that it owns and, if it defaults in the performance of its secured obligations, the pledgees or secured parties may offer and sell the Covered Shares from time to time pursuant to this prospectus. The Selling Stockholder also may transfer the shares of the Common Stock in other circumstances, in which case the transferees or other successors in interest will be the selling beneficial owners for purposes of this prospectus. The Selling Stockholder may distribute shares to its partners, shareholders or other owners in normal course, who may in turn sell the shares in the manner listed above.
The Selling Stockholder has informed us that it is not a registered broker-dealer and does not have any written or oral agreement or understanding, directly or indirectly, with any person to distribute the Covered Shares. Upon us being notified in writing by the Selling Stockholder that any material arrangement has been entered into with a broker-dealer for the sale of any Covered Shares through a block trade, special offering, exchange distribution or secondary distribution or a purchase by a broker or dealer, a supplement to this prospectus will be filed by us, if required, pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act, disclosing (i) the name of each such selling stockholder and of the participating broker-dealer(s), (ii) the number of shares involved, (iii) the price at which such shares were sold, (iv) the commissions paid or discounts or concessions allowed to such broker-dealer(s), where applicable, (v) that such broker-dealer(s) did not conduct any investigation to verify the information set out or incorporated by reference in this prospectus, and (vi) other facts material to the transaction.
We are required to pay all fees and expenses incident to the registration of the Covered Shares in accordance with the Alliance Purchase Agreement. The Selling Stockholder will pay all underwriting fees and discounts and selling commissions, if any and any related legal expenses incurred by it. We have agreed to indemnify or provide contribution to the Selling Stockholder against certain liabilities, including some liabilities under the Securities Act, in accordance with the Alliance Purchase Agreement. The Selling Stockholder has agreed to indemnify us or provide contribution against civil liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act, that may arise from any written information furnished to us by the Selling Stockholder or certain of its affiliates specifically for use in this prospectus, in accordance with the Alliance Purchase Agreement.
The Selling Stockholder will be subject to the prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act, including Rule 172 thereunder, unless an exemption therefrom is available. We will make copies of this prospectus available to the Selling Stockholder and have informed it of the need to deliver a copy of this prospectus at or prior to the time of any sale (including by compliance with Rule 172). Under applicable rules and regulations under the Exchange Act, any person engaged in the distribution of the securities may not simultaneously engage in market-making activities with respect to the securities for the applicable restricted period, as defined in Regulation M, prior to the commencement of the distribution. In addition, the Selling Stockholder and any other person participating in such distribution will be subject to applicable provisions of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations thereunder, including Regulation M, which may limit the timing of purchases and sales of shares of common stock by the Selling Stockholder or any other person. Under the securities laws of some states, the securities may be sold in such states only through registered or licensed brokers or dealers. In addition, in some states, the Covered Shares may not be sold unless they have been registered or qualified for sale or an exemption from registration or qualification requirements is available and is complied with.
There can be no assurance that the Selling Stockholder will sell any or all of the Covered Shares. Once sold under the registration statement, of which this prospectus forms a part, the shares will be freely tradeable in the hands of persons other than ApolloMed’s affiliates. To the extent required, the shares of the Common Stock to be sold, the name of the Selling Stockholder, the respective purchase prices and public offering prices, the names of any agents, dealer or underwriter, and any applicable commissions or discounts with respect to a particular offer will be set forth in an accompanying prospectus supplement or, if appropriate, a post-effective amendment to the registration statement that includes this prospectus. To the extent permitted by applicable law, this plan of distribution may be modified in a prospectus supplement, a post-effective amendment or otherwise.
The validity of the issuance of the shares of the Common Stock offered by this prospectus has been passed upon for us by Shartsis Friese LLP, San Francisco, California. Additional legal matters may be passed upon for us or any underwriters, dealers or agents, by counsel that will be named in the applicable prospectus supplement.
