This Amendment No. 2 amends and supplements the Schedule 13D as specifically set forth herein.

All capitalized terms contained herein but not otherwise defined shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Schedule 13D. Information given in response to each item shall be deemed incorporated by reference in all other items, as applicable.

 

Item 4.

On November 4, 2019, the Backstop Parties consented to amend the terms of the Consent Solicitation as set forth in certain supplements to the Offering Memorandum (as defined in the Backstop Agreement).

The Reporting Persons intend to review their investment in the Issuer on a continuing basis and may from time to time and at any time in the future formulate plans or proposals depending on various factors, including, without limitation, the outcome of the transactions referenced in this Schedule 13D, the Issuer’s financial position and strategic direction, actions taken by the Board, price levels of the Issuer’s securities, other investment opportunities available to the Reporting Persons, conditions in the securities market and general economic and industry conditions, and take such actions with respect to the investment in the Issuer as they deem appropriate. These actions may, subject to the obligations set forth above, include: (i) acquiring additional shares of Common Stock and/or other equity, debt, notes, other securities, or derivative or other instruments that are based upon or relate to the value of securities of the Issuer (collectively, “Securities”) in the open market or otherwise; (ii) disposing of any or all of their Securities in the open market or otherwise; (iii) engaging in any hedging or similar transactions with respect to the Securities; or (iv) proposing or considering one or more of the actions described in subsections (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D. The Reporting Persons undertake no obligation to make additional disclosures except to the extent required by law.
