EXPLANATORY NOTE

 

This Amendment No. 2 to Schedule 13D (this “Amendment No. 2”) amends the Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on July 13, 2010, as amended, supplemented and restated by the Amendment No. 1 to Schedule 13D filed with the SEC on February 14, 2011 (the “Original Filing”) by LT International Limited, a company organized under the laws of the British Virgin Islands (“LTI”) and Mr. Libin Sun, the sole owner and the sole director of LTI (“Mr. Sun,” together with LTI, the “Reporting Persons”), with respect to the Common Stock of the Issuer. This Amendment No. 2 is being filed to reflect certain developments in connection with a Transaction (as defined under Item 4 below) and changes in the Reporting Persons’ ownership percentages following the Original Filing. Accordingly, this Amendment No. 2 amends and restates the cover page and Item 5 of the Original Filing, and amends and supplements Items 4 of the Original Filing. Items 1, 2, 3, 6 and 7 of the Original Filing are not amended hereby. Capitalized terms that are not defined herein have the respective meanings set forth in the Original Filing.

 

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction

 

The second paragraph of Item 4 of the Original Filing is hereby deleted in its entirety.

 

Item 4 of the Original Filing is hereby further amended and supplemented by adding the following at the end thereof:

 

On January 20, 2012, the Issuer announced that its Board of Directors (the "Board") had received a non-binding proposal letter from a wholly owned subsidiary of CITIC Capital China Partners II, L.P. ("CITIC Capital") pursuant to which CITIC Capital proposed to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Common Stock (the "Proposed CITIC Transaction") and that the Board had formed a special committee of directors (the "Special Committee") to consider the Proposed CITIC Transaction and any potential alternative transactions involving the Issuer (each, an "Alternative Transaction" and collectively with the Proposed CITIC Transaction, a "Transaction").

 

On March 26, 2012, the Issuer announced that the Special Committee had determined to solicit interest from, and engage in discussions with, other potential qualified interested parties regarding an Alternative Transaction, and to evaluate any proposals it receives.

 

After discussions with the Special Committee and, with the permission of the Special Committee, preliminary discussions with certain qualified interested parties regarding a Transaction, Mr. Sun has determined that he is interested in potentially participating in a Transaction.

 

Subject to the Reporting Persons’ contractual rights and restrictions and other duties, if and to the extent a Transaction were to proceed, the Reporting Persons expect to begin to or continue to, as applicable, engage in discussions and negotiations with the Issuer and potentially other parties with respect to the terms on which the Reporting Persons would be willing to participate in such Transaction. However, there can be no assurance that the Reporting Persons or any other person will make any definitive offer to the Issuer, that any such offer, if made, would be accepted or consummated or, in any case, that any of the Reporting Persons would participate in any such Transaction.

 

If the Reporting Persons were to participate in a Transaction, they might reinvest all or a portion or none of their current equity ownership in the Issuer. The Reporting Persons have not entered into any binding commitment or agreement with the Issuer or any other person that would obligate the Reporting Persons to enter into or participate in any Transaction. Similarly, the Reporting Persons are not aware that the Issuer or any other person, is obligated to participate with the Reporting Persons in any transaction relating to the Common Stock. Any of the Reporting Persons may withdraw or modify its interest in potentially participating in a Transaction or in submitting an alternative proposal in respect of an Alternative Transaction at any time and in its sole discretion.

 

Without limiting the foregoing, the Reporting Persons reserve the right to exercise any and all of their rights in a manner consistent with their equity interests, contractual rights and restrictions and other duties, if any. Each of the Reporting Persons reserves the right (in each case, subject to any applicable restrictions under law) to, from time to time and as permitted by their contractual rights and restrictions and other duties, take one or more of the actions described in paragraphs (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D.

 

 
 

 

CUSIP No. 04518A104  13D Page 4 of 5 Pages

 

 

Except as set forth in this Amendment No. 2, none of the Reporting Persons presently has any additional plans or proposals that relate to or would result in any of the transactions described in subparagraphs (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D. Notwithstanding anything contained herein, the Reporting Persons specifically reserve the right to change their intentions with respect to any or all of the matters referred to in this Amendment No. 2.
