The following constitutes Amendment No. 1 to the Schedule 13D filed by the undersigned (“Amendment No. 1”). This Amendment No. 1 amends the Schedule 13D as specifically set forth herein.

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

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

The Shares purchased by Philotimo 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 transactions. The Shares purchased by KWM were purchased with the funds for the accounts of its customers (which may, at any given time, include margin loans made by brokerage firms in the ordinary course of business) in open market transactions. The Shares purchased by Mr. Kanen 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 924,416 Shares beneficially owned by KWM is approximately $4,888,958, including brokerage commissions. The aggregate purchase price of the 535,007 Shares beneficially owned by Philotimo is approximately $2,804,606, including brokerage commissions. The aggregate purchase price of the 52,584 Shares beneficially owned by Mr. Kanen is approximately $276,292, including brokerage commissions.

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.

Item 4 is hereby amended to add the following:

On July 26, 2019, the Reporting Persons entered into a cooperation agreement (the “Agreement”) with the Issuer regarding the composition of the Issuer’s Board of Directors (the “Board”). The following description of the Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Agreement, which is attached as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.

Pursuant to the Agreement, the Issuer agreed to increase the size of the Board to eight (8) members and appoint David L. Kanen as a Class II director to serve until the Company’s 2021 annual meeting of stockholders (the “2021 Annual Meeting”).

Under the terms of the Agreement, the Reporting Persons have agreed to abide by customary standstill restrictions until fifteen (15) days prior to the deadline for submission of a notice of stockholder nomination of individuals for election as directors of the Company at the 2021 Annual Meeting (the “Standstill Period”); provided that if the Board offers to nominate Mr. Kanen for election to the Board at the 2021 Annual Meeting and Mr. Kanen agrees to stand for election to the Board at the 2021 Annual Meeting, then the Standstill Period will be automatically extended for such period as Mr. Kanen remains on the Board. The standstill provisions generally prohibit the Reporting Persons from taking specified actions with respect to the Issuer and its securities, including, among others: (i) soliciting or participating in any solicitation of proxies or written consents to vote any voting securities of the Issuer, (ii) conducting any non-binding referendum with respect to any voting securities of the Issuer; (iii) joining any other “group” for purposes of Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act or becoming party to any voting arrangement or agreement; (iv) seeking or encouraging others to submit nominations for the election or removal of directors; (v) seeking, alone or in concert with others, representation on the Board, except as expressly permitted by the Agreement; (vi) advising, encouraging or influencing any person with respect to the voting of or disposition of any securities of the Issuer; (vii) making shareholder proposals at any annual or special meeting of shareholders; (viii) calling, or supporting another shareholder’s call of, any meeting of shareholders; or (ix) initiating, encouraging or participating in any “vote no,” “withhold” or similar campaign relating to the Issuer.

5

CUSIP NO. 120076104

The Agreement also provides that Mr. Kanen has delivered to the Company an executed irrevocable resignation letter (which resignation may be accepted by the Board in its sole discretion) to which he agrees to resign from the Board if (A) at any time during the Standstill Period, the Reporting Persons’ aggregate beneficial ownership decreases to less than six percent (6.0%) of the then-outstanding Company Shares or (B) Mr. Kanen accepts a directorship which would cause him to serve on the boards of directors of more than two (2) public companies in addition to the Board. Such irrevocable resignation shall not be effective until accepted by the Board.

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.
