-7-

 

 

ITEM 3.

SOURCE AND AMOUNT OF FUNDS OR OTHER CONSIDERATION.

 

The shares were acquired with the personal funds of the Reporting Persons.

 

-8-

 

 

ITEM 4.

PURPOSE OF THE TRANSACTION.

 

The Reporting Persons, directly or indirectly through certain affiliates, acquired the shares of the Issuer for investment purposes and not with a view toward or having the effect of directing or changing control over the Issuer. See Schedule A attached hereto. As a result of his appointment in March 2018 as the non-executive Chairman of the Issuer’s Board of Directors and his beneficial share ownership, Mr. Williams may effect a measure of control over the Issuer. Mr. Williams has at all times from immediately prior to and since the initial public offering of the Common Stock in November 2014 been a principal shareholder and director of the Issuer and is a member of the family which co-founded the Issuer.  

 

The Reporting Persons will continue to evaluate their ownership, investment and voting position in the Issuer and they currently expect to continue holding Issuer’s securities for investment. The Williams Trust and GST have entered into a Rule 10b5-1 trading plan (the "10b5-1 Plan") with an independent broker-dealer for the further purchase of up to two million shares of common stock of the Company. Purchases are subject to Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") regulations, inclusive of Rules 10b5-1 and Rule 10b-18, as well as to certain market price, volume and timing conditions specified in the 10b5-1 Plan.

 

The 10b5-1 Plan will expire by the earlier of the date on which aggregate share purchases equal two million shares or the termination of the 10b5-1 Plan on January 31, 2019.  The 10b5-1 Plan is also subject to early termination on occurrence of certain events such as the dissolution of any Reporting Person, the Company’s announcing a tender or exchange offer with respect to the common stock, the announcement of a merger, reorganization or certain other proceedings that may materially affect the securities of the Company. The first purchase under the 10b5-1 Plan is expected to be made after the Company files its Form 10-Q for the six months ended June 30, 2018 but no earlier than July 16, 2018.

 

Pursuant to the 10b5-1 Plan, an independent broker-dealer will act as the agent of the Reporting Persons in effecting daily open market transactions on pre-arranged terms, which include a predetermined pricing ceiling per share and a ceiling on the number of shares that may be purchased on any trading day, during a period beginning no earlier than July 16, 2018 and ending on January 31, 2019. The broker-dealer is permitted to make purchases pursuant to the 10b5-1 Plan through privately negotiated transactions. Because purchases under the 10b5-1 Plan are subject to pre-determined pricing parameters and ceiling limits on amounts that may be purchased on any trading date as well as other conditions which may cause early termination or other trading restrictions, there can be no assurance as to the number of shares that will be purchased by these Reporting Persons under the 10b5-1 Plan.
