Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer

As the sole shareholder of Montrovest, Montel is deemed to beneficially own the 8,846,692 Class A Shares beneficially owned by Montrovest, representing 49.26% of the outstanding Class A Shares.

Mangrove beneficially owns 4,800,000 Class A Shares, representing 26.72% of the outstanding Class A Shares. The Class A Shares beneficially owned by Mangrove represent 4,000,000 Class B Shares convertible into 4,000,000 Class A Shares directly owned by Mangrove and 800,000 Class A Shares directly owned by Mangrove. The Class B Shares entitle the holder to ten votes for each Class B Share held and each Class B Share is convertible into one Class A Share.

Meritus, as trustee of The Grande Rousse Trust, owns 100% of Montel and 100% of Mangrove and indirectly 100% of the shares of Montrovest and, as a result, the Class A Shares and Class B Shares held by Montrovest and Mangrove are deemed to be beneficially owned by The Grande Rousse Trust. The 13,646,692 Class A Shares beneficially owned by The Grande Rousse Trust represent 7,717,970 Class B Shares convertible into 7,717,970 Class A Shares directly owned by Montrovest and Mangrove and 5,928,722 Class A Shares directly owned by Montrovest and Mangrove, representing 75.98% of the outstanding Class A Shares.

On December 21, 2017, Meritus replaced Rohan as the trustee of The Grande Rousse Trust. As a result, Rohan is no longer deemed to beneficially own shares of Birks.

As the trustee of The Grande Rousse Trust, Meritus is deemed to beneficially own the 13,646,692 Class A Shares beneficially owned by The Grande Rousse Trust. The Class A Shares beneficially owned by Meritus represent 7,717,970 Class B Shares convertible into 7,717,970 Class A Shares directly owned by Montrovest and Mangrove and 5,928,722 Class A Shares directly owned by Montrovest and Mangrove, representing 75.98% of the Class A Shares.

Confido has the power to remove the trustee of The Grande Rousse Trust. As a result, Confido may be deemed to have beneficial ownership of the shares of Class A Shares held by Mangrove or Montrovest. Neither the filing of this Schedule 13D nor any of its contents shall be deemed to constitute an admission that Confido is the beneficial owner of the shares of Class A Shares held by Mangrove or Montrovest for purposes of Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or for any other purpose, and Confido disclaims beneficial ownership of such shares.

None of the officers, directors and control persons of Montrovest, Montel, Mangrove, Confido and Meritus holds Class A Shares or Class B Shares.

The number of Class A Shares as to which each of Montrovest, The Grande Rousse Trust, Meritus, Montel, Confido and Mangrove have sole voting power, shared voting power, sole dispositive power and shared dispositive power is set forth in boxes 7, 8, 9 and 10, respectively, on the second part of the cover page to this Schedule 13D, and such information is incorporated herein by reference.

(c)

Except as described in this Amendment No. 2, no other transactions involving the securities of Birks were effected during the past sixty days or since the most recent filing on Schedule 13D, whichever is less, by the Reporting Persons.

(d)

No other person is known to have a right to receive or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or the proceeds from the sale of, the Class A Shares beneficially owned by the Reporting Persons.
