Item 4.
Purpose of the Transaction.
The Issuer’s Common Stock reported as beneficially owned herein was acquired solely for investment purposes.
Pursuant to the terms of the Stock Purchase Agreement (the “SPA”) dated as of February 2, 2016 between the Issuer and API, as amended, API has the right to designate one person for election to the Board of Directors of the Issuer for so long as API continues to beneficially own at least 5% of the shares of Common Stock outstanding. API has designated Mr. Kutler to serve as API’s designee. Mr. Kutler was appointed to the Issuer’s Board of Directors on February 24, 2016, became Chairman of the Board of Directors on May 9, 2016, and was elected to the Board at the Issuer’s 2018 annual meeting of stockholders.
In connection with the SPA, the Issuer and Mr. Kutler entered into a consulting agreement (the “Consulting Agreement”), whereby Mr. Kutler agreed to provide consulting services to the

Pursuant to the Consulting Agreement, Mr. Kutler will receive an annual fee for the three-year term of the Consulting Agreement equal to the difference between $125,000 and the amount of cash and the value of any stock received by Mr. Kutler for serving on the Board of Directors of the Issuer (directors generally receive approximately $70,000 per year in cash and stock), meaning that Mr. Kutler would receive a consulting fee of approximately $55,000 per year if he receives $70,000 per year in board fees. The Consulting Agreement expired in accordance with its terms on February 2, 2019.
API is further restricted from transferring its shares of the Issuer by Federal and state securities laws as such shares are deemed “restricted securities” within the meaning of Rule 144 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
While none of the Filing Persons has any present plans or proposals to acquire additional shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock or to sell any of the shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock beneficially owned by them, they may in the future and from time to time purchase additional shares or sell some or all of the shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock beneficially owned by them in the open market, in one or more privately negotiated transactions or otherwise, subject in each case to the terms of the SPA.
