To the best of the Reporting Persons’ knowledge, except as otherwise set forth herein, none of the persons listed on Schedule A beneficially owns any securities of the Issuer or is a party to any contract, agreement or understanding required to be disclosed herein.

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

The Shares purchased by Opportunistic Value Fund 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 purchases. The aggregate purchase price of the 1,788,079 Shares beneficially owned by Opportunistic Value Fund is approximately $85,917,661, including brokerage commissions.

 

Item 4.Purpose of Transaction.

The Reporting Persons purchased the Shares based on the Reporting Persons’ belief that the Shares, when purchased, were undervalued and represented an attractive investment opportunity. Depending upon overall market conditions, other investment opportunities available to the Reporting Persons, and the availability of Shares at prices that would make the purchase or sale of Shares desirable, the Reporting Persons may endeavor to increase or decrease their position in the Issuer through, among other things, the purchase or sale of Shares on the open market or in private transactions or otherwise, on such terms and at such times as the Reporting Persons may deem advisable.

On March 6, 2019, the Reporting Persons entered into a Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreement with the Issuer (the “Agreement”), pursuant to which the Reporting Persons agreed to hold in confidence and refrain from disclosing certain discussion information and confidential information relating to the Issuer’s announced strategic review process and CEO transition. The terms of the Agreement provide that the Reporting Persons may not acquire beneficial ownership of 4.99% or more of the Issuer’s then-outstanding Shares, except to the extent acquired solely as a result of the exercise by a third party of put options written by the Reporting Persons as of the date of the Agreement. The Agreement also includes certain other customary standstill restrictions that remain in effect from the date of the Agreement until the later of (i) written notice by one party to the other party that it is electing to terminate discussions and (ii) the first date on which the Issuer files its proxy statement, or preliminary proxy statement, for the 2019 annual meeting of stockholders.

No Reporting Person has any present plan or proposal which would relate to or result in any of the matters set forth in subparagraphs (a) - (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D except as set forth herein or such as would occur upon or in connection with completion of, or following, any of the actions discussed herein. The Reporting Persons intend to review their investment in the Issuer on a continuing basis. Depending on various factors including, without limitation, the Issuer’s financial position and investment strategy, the price levels of the Shares, conditions in the securities markets and general economic and industry conditions, the Reporting Persons may in the future take such actions with respect to their investment in the Issuer as they deem appropriate including, without limitation, engaging in communications with management and the Board of Directors of the Issuer, engaging in discussions with shareholders of the Issuer and others about the Issuer and the Reporting Persons’ investment, making other proposals to the Issuer concerning changes to the capitalization, ownership structure, board structure (including board composition) or operations of the Issuer, purchasing additional Shares, selling some or all of their Shares, engaging in short selling of or any hedging or similar transaction with respect to the Shares, or changing their intention with respect to any and all matters referred to in Item 4.
