The principal business of the Reporting Person is providing investment management services to the private investment vehicles and accounts for which the Reporting Person serves as investment manager.
During the past five years, neither the Reporting Person nor any director, executive officer or controlling person of the Reporting Person has been convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors).
During the past five years, neither the Reporting Person nor any director, executive officer or controlling person of the Reporting Person has been a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction and as a result of such proceeding was or is subject to a judgment, decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting, or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or a finding of any violation with respect to such laws.
As described in Item 4, the Reporting Person may be deemed to be a member of a group for the purposes of Section 13(d)(3) of Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the Act) comprised of the Reporting Person and the Other Shareholders (as defined in Item 4). Each of the Other Shareholders has agreed to file a separate statement of beneficial ownership on Schedule 13D pursuant to Rule 13d-1(k)(2) under the Act containing its required information. The Reporting Person assumes no responsibility for the information contained in such Schedule 13Ds filed by Other Shareholders. The Reporting Person expressly disclaims beneficial ownership of any securities beneficially owned or acquired by any Other Shareholder.
|Item 3.|| |
Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

The Company has publicly announced that it is conducting a process for the refreshment of its board of directors (the Board) and that it anticipates that a majority of the Board will be new independent directors prior to the Companys 2019 annual meeting of shareholders. The Company has also publicly announced that it is conducting a process to identify a permanent CEO to lead the Company.
From time to time, representatives of the Reporting Person have conducted discussions with representatives of the Company and other parties with respect to the Companys bankruptcy case and these processes. On March 8, 2019, the Reporting Person and two other shareholders, Knighthead Capital Management, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, and Abrams Capital Management, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (together, the Other Shareholders), had an initial joint conference call, together with financial advisers and counsel, to discuss the status of discussions with representatives of the Company regarding the Board refreshment and CEO selection processes. During their telephone conference, each of the Reporting Person and the Other Shareholders mutually agreed to act in concert to submit director candidate nominations to the Company if they collectively determined nominations to be appropriate.
On March 15, 2019, the Reporting Person entered into a letter agreement (the Investor Agreement), a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 99.1 hereto, with the Other Shareholders, in respect of the Companys Board refreshment and CEO selection processes. This Investor Agreement memorialized the parties determination on March 8, 2019 that they expected to work in concert for what they expected to be a brief period in relation to these matters. Unless the Reporting Person withdraws from the Investor Agreement (which it may do at any time), the Reporting Person expects to act with respect to any such matter in accordance with the agreement or consensus of at least two of the three parties to the Investor Agreement. As such, the Reporting Person and the Other Shareholders may be deemed to constitute a group for purposes of Rule 13d-3 under the Act.
Based on information provided by the Other Shareholders, the Reporting Person believes that it and the Other Shareholders beneficially own in the aggregate 9.83% of the outstanding Shares as of the date of this Schedule 13D. Depending on the outcome of discussions with the Company, the Reporting Person (with or without one or both of the Other Shareholders) may submit proposed nominees for election to the Board under the Companys director nomination bylaws, although it has not decided to do so as of the date of this Schedule 13D.
Except as set forth above, as of the date of this Schedule 13D, the Reporting Person and, to its knowledge, the Other Shareholders have no plans or proposals that relate to or would result in any matter referred in items (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D.
Depending on market conditions and other factors, including developments in the Companys bankruptcy case, the Redwood Funds may sell Shares in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions or purchase or sell cash-settled derivatives, the value of which is measured by changes in trading prices of the Shares. The Investor Agreement prohibits purchases of additional Shares. Accordingly, such purchases by the Reporting Person would require the consent of at least two of the three parties to the Investor Agreement or would require the Reporting Person to withdraw therefrom.
The Reporting Person also reserves the sole right to vote the Shares it beneficially owns or to take any other action with respect to such Shares. The Reporting Person and each Other Shareholder have expressly represented and agreed that they have no other written or oral agreement or understanding with respect to the Shares and expressly reserve the right for any reason or no reason to act independently with respect to the Company or their investment in it. The Reporting Person reserves the right to change its plans and make any proposal, either alone or with others, at any time.
The Reporting Person presently expects to terminate the Investor Agreement upon the Companys election of a refreshed Board and selection of a permanent CEO acceptable to the Reporting Person. The Reporting Person reserves the right to terminate the Investor Agreement earlier or later, and to take any other action, alone or with others.
