Item 4. Purpose of Transaction

Item 4 is hereby amended by deleting the text thereof in its entirety and replacing it with the following:

As described in Item 5 of this Schedule 13D, the Reporting Person beneficially owns 73,119,047 shares, or 53.1%, of the Common Stock of the Issuer. By virtue of its ownership of a majority of the outstanding Common Stock, the Reporting Person has the power to elect the entire Board of Directors of the Issuer. As of the date of this Amendment No. 3 to Schedule 13D, three of the Issuer’s ten directors are executive officers of the Reporting Person. The Issuer has indicated to the Reporting Person that: (i) it has nominated seven directors for election at its 2020 annual meeting of shareholders, only two of whom are executive officers of the Reporting Person; and (ii) effective as of its 2020 annual meeting of shareholders, it has appointed its Chief Executive Officer as Chairman of the Board, replacing the executive officer of the Reporting Person who currently serves as Chairman of the Board.

The Reporting Person regularly reviews the Issuer’s business, performance, financial condition, results of operations, and anticipated future developments and prospects, as well as general economic conditions and existing and anticipated market and industry conditions and trends affecting the Issuer. The Reporting Person regularly discusses such matters with the Issuer’s management and Board of Directors either directly or through Board participation. As a result of these or other factors and any such discussions, the Reporting Person may from time to time, and reserves the right to, consider, study, formulate and actively participate in any plans or proposals regarding the Issuer, including any of the actions or transactions enumerated in clauses (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D. Such actions or transactions may also include, among others, dispositions of the Issuer’s Common Stock or the acquisition of additional shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock, including an acquisition or series of acquisitions or transaction that could result in a going private transaction governed by Rule 13e-3 under the Act. The Reporting Person further reserves the right to change its intentions with respect to any of the foregoing.
