Explanatory Note

This Amendment No. 4 (the “Amendment”) amends and supplements the Schedule 13D filed by the Filing Persons with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 9, 2016, as amended on February 26, 2016, as amended on June 6, 2016, and as amended on February 13, 2019 (the “Schedule 13D”). Except as specifically provided herein, this Amendment does not modify or amend any of the information previously reported in the Schedule 13D. Capitalized terms used and not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Schedule 13D.

This Amendment constitutes an exit filing for Filing Persons as they no longer own shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of the Issuer.

 

Item 5.

Interest in Securities of the Issuer

Item 5 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended by deleting it in its entirety and substituting the following in lieu thereof:

Filing Persons no longer own shares of the Issuer. Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), dated as of September 22, 2019, by and among Issuer, Argonaut Intermediate, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Parent”), and Argonaut Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a direct wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub”), Merger Sub was merged with and into the Issuer, with the Issuer continuing as a direct wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (the “Merger”). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger, each share of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of the Issuer was converted into the right to receive $3.00 in cash, net of applicable tax withholding, without interest.
