SCHEDULE 13D/APage 3 of 4 Pages

The following constitutes Amendment No. 7 to the Schedule 13D filed by the undersigned ("Amendment No. 7"). This Amendment No. 7 amends the Schedule 13D as specifically set forth herein. Capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined in this Amendment No. 7 have the meanings set forth in the Schedule 13D.

 

Item 3. SOURCE AND AMOUNT OF FUNDS OR OTHER CONSIDERATION.

 

Item 3 of the Schedule 13D is hereby and amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

 

The 5,724,981 Shares reported herein were acquired at an aggregate purchase price of approximately $88.6 million. Such Shares were acquired with investment funds in accounts managed by the Reporting Person and margin borrowings described in the following sentence. Such Shares are held by the investment funds managed by the Reporting Person in commingled margin accounts, which may extend margin credit to the Reporting Person from time to time, subject to applicable federal margin regulations, stock exchange rules and credit policies. In such instances, the positions held in the margin accounts are pledged as collateral security for the repayment of debit balances in the account. The margin accounts bear interest at a rate based upon the broker's call rate from time to time in effect. Because other securities are held in the margin accounts, it is not possible to determine the amounts, if any, of margin used to purchase the Shares reported herein.

 

Item 5. INTEREST IN SECURITIES OF THE COMPANY.

 

Items 5(a), (b) and (c) of the Schedule 13D are hereby and amended and restated in their entirety as follows:

 

(a) The aggregate percentage of Shares reported to be beneficially owned by the Reporting Person is based upon 87,546,678 Shares outstanding as of July 28, 2020, as reported in the Issuer's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 28, 2020 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 31, 2020.

 

As of the date hereof, the Reporting Person may be deemed to beneficially own 5,724,981 Shares, representing approximately 6.5% of the Shares outstanding.

 

(b) The Reporting Person has sole voting and dispositive power over 5,724,981 Shares, which power is exercised by the Principal.

 

(c) Information concerning transactions in the Shares effected by the Reporting Person during the past sixty days is set forth in Exhibit K hereto and is incorporated herein by reference. All of the transactions in Shares listed hereto were effected in the open market through various brokerage entities.

 

Item 7. MATERIAL TO BE FILED AS EXHIBITS.

 

Item 7 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and supplemented as follows:
