The following constitutes Amendment No. 3 to the Schedule 13D filed by the undersigned (“Amendment No. 3”). This Amendment No. 3 amends the Schedule 13D as specifically set forth herein.
 
Item 4.
Purpose of Transaction.
 
Item 4 is hereby amended to add the following:
 
As previously disclosed in Starboard’s open letter to the shareholders of the Issuer on September 3, 2013, Starboard had received non-binding written indications of interest for all of the Issuer’s assets that aggregated to a price substantially in excess of the $34 per share consideration contemplated by the proposed merger (the “Proposed Merger”) between the Issuer and Shuanghui International Holdings Limited (“Shuanghui”).  In light of (i) the restrictions imposed by the merger agreement between the Issuer and Shuanghui, and (ii) the requirement of structuring a cash bid from a single entity, it proved challenging for the bidder group to formalize and deliver an alternative proposal prior to the special meeting scheduled for September 24, 2013 at which time shareholders will vote on the Proposed Merger.  While we are confident that the Issuer could have received value in excess of that available pursuant to the Proposed Merger, we are not able to offer shareholders an alternative proposal at this time.  Therefore, at this time, unless another proposal emerges, we plan on voting in favor of the Proposed Merger.
