The Shares purchased by the Reporting Person on behalf of AJR, Cambrian Fund, Cambrian Global Fund and the Other Accounts were purchased with the investment capital of such entities and accounts. The aggregate amount of funds used in making the purchases reported on this Schedule 13D was approximately $158,727,196.

 

Item 4.      Purpose of Transaction.

 

The Reporting Person acquired, on behalf of AJR, Cambrian Fund, Cambrian Global Fund and the Other Accounts and continues to hold, the Shares reported in this Schedule 13D for investment purposes. The Reporting Person intends to evaluate the performance of the Shares as an investment in the ordinary course of business. The Reporting Person pursues an investment objective that seeks capital appreciation. In pursuing this investment objective, the Reporting Person analyzes the operations, capital structure and markets of companies in which the Reporting Person’s clients invest, including the Issuer, on a continuous basis through analysis of documentation and discussions with knowledgeable industry and market observers and with representatives of such companies.

The Reporting Person will continuously assess the Issuer’s business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects, general economic conditions, the securities markets in general and those for the Shares in particular, other developments and other investment opportunities. Depending on such assessments, the Reporting Person may acquire additional Shares or may determine to sell or otherwise dispose of all or some of the Shares presently held by AJR, Cambrian Fund, Cambrian Global Fund, and the Other Accounts in the open market or in private transactions. Such actions will depend upon a variety of factors, including, without limitation, current and anticipated future trading prices for the Shares, the financial condition, results of operations and prospects of the Issuer, alternative investment opportunities, general economic, financial market and industry conditions and other factors that the Reporting Person may deem material to its investment decision.

 

 

 

The Reporting Person sold Shares for portfolio management reasons and intends to remain significant shareholders of the Issuer. The Issuer remains the Reporting Person’s largest U.S. portfolio holding. The Reporting Person and their representatives have, from time to time, engaged in, and expect to continue to engage in, discussions with members of management and the board of directors of the Issuer (the “Board”), other current or prospective shareholders, industry analysts, existing or potential strategic partners or competitors, investment and financing professionals and other third parties regarding a variety of matters related to the Issuer, which may include, among other things, the Issuer’s business, management, capital structure and allocation, corporate governance, Board composition and strategic alternatives and direction, and may take other steps seeking to bring about changes to increase shareholder value.

On each of September 14, 2018 and October 31, 2018, the Reporting Person filed as exhibits to its Schedule 13D filed with the SEC on such dates, the letters (the “Letters”) it wrote to the Issuer’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Andres Lopez, urging him and the Board to consider the sale of the Issuer’s European business and to use the proceeds to repay half of the Issuer’s outstanding indebtedness and repurchase up to 25% of its Shares. The Reporting Person continues to advocate the merits of these proposals to the Issuer’s management and other constituents. The Letters are attached as Exhibit 1 and Exhibit 2 to this Schedule 13D and are incorporated by reference herein.

Except as set forth above, the Reporting Person has no other present plans or proposals which relate to or would result in any of the transactions required to be described in Item 4 of Schedule 13D.

 

Item 5.     Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

 

(a)  Based upon the information contained in the Issuer’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 31, 2018, there were issued and outstanding 158,698,663 Shares as of September 30, 2018.

(b)   The Reporting Person does not directly own any Shares. The Reporting Person has entered into an investment advisory agreement with each of AJR, Cambrian Fund, Cambrian Global Fund and the Other Accounts pursuant to which the Reporting Person has investment authority with respect to the securities held by such entities or in such accounts. Such power includes the power to dispose of and the power to vote the Shares. By reason of the provisions of Rule 13d-3 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the Reporting Person is deemed to be the beneficial owner of the Shares held by such entities and accounts. Accordingly, the Reporting Person is deemed the beneficial owner of 7,887,675 Shares, or 4.9% of the outstanding Shares.
