The following constitutes Amendment No. 10 to the Schedule 13D filed by the undersigned (“Amendment No. 10”). This Amendment No. 10 amends the Schedule 13D as specifically set forth herein.

Item 2.Identity and Background.

Item 2 is hereby amended to add the following:

In connection with the Letter Agreement, as defined and described in Item 4 below, the Reporting Persons executed a Termination of Joint Filing and Solicitation Agreement. In connection with the Termination of Joint Filing and Solicitation Agreement, which is attached as Exhibit 99.2 hereto and incorporated herein by reference, each of the undersigned to that certain Joint Filing and Solicitation Agreement, dated February 27, 2018, are no longer members of a Section 13(d) group, and Ms. Colleran and Mr. Wolin shall cease to be Reporting Persons immediately after the filing of this Amendment No. 10 to the Schedule 13D. The remaining Reporting Persons (collectively, the “Richmond Parties”) will continue filing statements on Schedule 13D with respect to their beneficial ownership of securities of the Issuer to the extent required by applicable law. The Richmond Parties have entered into a Joint Filing Agreement, as further described in Item 6 below.

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

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

The Shares held in the Separately Managed Accounts and purchased by each of RBI PI, RBI PII and the RBI Plan were purchased with working capital (which may, at any given time, include margin loans made by brokerage firms in the ordinary course of business) in open market purchases. The aggregate purchase price of the 5,150,697 Shares held by the Separately Managed Accounts is approximately $30,593,548, excluding brokerage commissions. The aggregate purchase price of the 164,841 Shares owned directly by RBI PI is approximately $1,099,401, excluding brokerage commissions. The aggregate purchase price of the 29,802 Shares owned directly by RBI PII is approximately $175,072, excluding brokerage commissions. The aggregate purchase price of the 42,100 Shares owned directly by the RBI Plan is approximately $285,375, excluding brokerage commissions.

The Shares purchased by Mr. Richmond were purchased with personal funds (which may, at any given time, include margin loans made by brokerage firms in the ordinary course of business) in open market transactions. The aggregate purchase price of the 204,626 Shares beneficially owned by Mr. Richmond, including 28,096 Shares directly owned by his spouse, 147 Shares directly owned by his daughter and 7 Shares directly owned by his son, is approximately $890,591, excluding brokerage commissions.

CUSIP NO. 774374102

Item 4.Purpose of Transaction.

Item 4 is hereby amended to add the following:

On March 7, 2018, Richmond Brothers and Mr. Richmond entered into a letter agreement (the “Letter Agreement”) with the Issuer concerning certain corporate governance matters. Pursuant to the Letter Agreement, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) was increased to eight directors and Lisa Colleran and Benjamin Wolin were each appointed as directors, effective immediately, with Mr. Wolin also being appointed as Lead Independent Director. The Issuer also agreed to submit a proposal at the 2018 annual meeting of shareholders (the “2018 Annual Meeting”) seeking shareholder approval to declassify the Board so that, if approved at the 2018 Annual Meeting, beginning with the 2018 Annual Meeting, directors elected to succeed those directors whose terms then expire shall be elected for one-year terms, meaning that all directors would be elected annually beginning with the 2020 annual meeting of shareholders. Furthermore, the Board agreed to use its best efforts to request that each current director of the Board irrevocably commit to tender his/her resignation following the 2018 Annual Meeting if he/she is a member of the Board at that time and then each such director will subsequently be reappointed to the Board by the remaining members of the Board so as to serve until the 2019 annual meeting of shareholders (the “2019 Annual Meeting”), such that if all directors tender their resignations as described above, then beginning at the 2019 Annual Meeting, all directors will be elected for one-year terms. The Issuer also agreed that incumbent director Patrick J. Bagley will not stand for re-election at the 2018 Annual Meeting.

Pursuant to the Letter Agreement, Mr. Richmond agreed to withdraw the 2018 Nomination Letter (as defined and described in Amendment No. 9 to the Schedule 13D) and agreed not to bring any other proposal before the 2018 Annual Meeting. Mr. Richmond also agreed to vote, and recommend that the Shares held in the Separately Managed Accounts be voted, for (i) the election of the candidate nominated by the Board at the 2018 Annual Meeting (Robert L. Chioini) and (ii) the approval of the Rockwell Medical, Inc. 2018 Long Term Incentive Plan (the “2018 Plan”) as long as either Institutional Shareholder Services Inc. or Glass, Lewis & Co. recommend in favor of the 2018 Plan.

The foregoing description of the Letter Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Letter Agreement, which is attached as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.
