This Amendment No. 1 ("Amendment No. 1") amends and supplements the statement on Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on July 2, 2018 (the "Original Schedule 13D" and together with this Amendment No. 1, the "Schedule 13D") with respect to the common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the "Common Stock"), of WESCO International, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the "Issuer"). Capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined in this Amendment No. 1 have the meanings set forth in the Schedule 13D. This Amendment No. 1 amends Items 3 and 5(a)-(c) as set forth below.

 

Item 3. SOURCE AND AMOUNT OF FUNDS OR OTHER CONSIDERATION

The Reporting Persons used approximately $236,436,605 (excluding brokerage commissions) in the aggregate to purchase the shares of Common Stock reported in this Schedule 13D.

 

The source of the funds used to acquire the shares of Common Stock reported herein is the working capital of the Manager, which at any given time may include funds borrowed on margin in the ordinary course and on customary terms.

   

 

Item 5. INTEREST IN SECURITIES OF THE ISSUER
