The Purchasers acquired these shares pursuant to a previously established 10b5-1 plan.

 

This Amendment No. 4 amends the Schedule 13D, as previously amended and filed on August 29, 2018, as specifically set forth herein.

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.

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.
