ITEM 3. SOURCE AND AMOUNT OF FUNDS OR OTHER CONSIDERATION

The Estate acquired 327,808 shares of Voting Stock and stock options to buy an additional 100,000 shares of Voting Stock previously owned by Mr. James J. Cotter, Sr., under the laws of succession in the State of Nevada and pursuant to the terms of the Last Will and Testament, dated June 5, 2013, of Mr. James J. Cotter, Sr.  Mr. James J. Cotter, Sr. passed away on September 13, 2014, and Ms. Ellen Cotter and Ms. Margaret Cotter were appointed to act as the co-executors of the Estate by order of the District Court of Clark County, Nevada on December 22, 2014.

The Estate acquired 100,000 shares of Voting Stock on September 21, 2015 pursuant to an exercise of vested stock options for Voting Stock.  Shares of Non-Voting Stock were returned to the Company for payment of the exercise price.  There was no open market sale of the Non-Voting Stock in connection with such exercise.

Pursuant to exercises of vested stock options for Voting Stock, Ms. Ellen Cotter and Ms. Margaret Cotter acquired 50,000 shares of Voting Stock on April 16, 2015 and 35,100 shares of Voting Stock on April 17, 2015, respectively. In both cases, shares of Non-Voting Stock were returned to the Company for payment of the exercise price incident to such exercise.  There was no open market sale of the Non-Voting Stock in connection with such exercises.
 
ITEM 4. PURPOSE OF TRANSACTION

The Estate acquired 327,808 shares of Voting Stock and stock options for an additional 100,000 shares of Voting Stock following the death of Mr. James J. Cotter, Sr. on September 13, 2014.  Ms. Ellen Cotter and Ms. Margaret Cotter were appointed to act as the co-executors of the Estate by order of the District Court of Clark County, Nevada on December 22, 2014. As co-executors of the Estate, Ms. Ellen Cotter and Ms. Margaret Cotter share indirect beneficial ownership of 427,808 shares of Voting Stock directly beneficially owned by the Estate.

In addition, Ms. Ellen Cotter and Ms. Margaret Cotter (two of the three children of Mr. James J. Cotter, Sr.) are deemed to share indirect beneficial ownership of 696,080 shares of the Voting Stock directly beneficially owned by the Trust.  Such shares of the Voting Stock were deemed to have been owned by Mr. James J. Cotter, Sr. through the Trust during his lifetime and, upon Mr. James J. Cotter, Sr.’s death and the Trust’s conversion into an irrevocable trust, are now deemed to be directly beneficially owned by the Trust, of which the children of Mr. James J. Cotter, Sr., including Ms. Ellen Cotter, Ms. Margaret Cotter and Mr. James J. Cotter, Jr., serve as co-trustees.  The shares of the Voting Stock directly beneficially owned by the Trust (including the shares of the Voting Stock which are currently held by the Estate but will be transferred to the Trust after a reasonable period of administration) ultimately will be held in further trust for the benefit of the descendants of Mr. James J. Cotter, Sr., and such shares will be held for investment purposes and the co-trustees of the Trust are directed to retain such shares for as long as possible and are relieved from any obligation to diversify the Trust’s investments.

On September 21, 2015, the Estate exercised vested stock options to buy 100,000 shares of Voting Stock.  On April 8, 2015, Ms. Margaret Cotter exercised vested stock options and received 12,500 shares of Non-Voting Stock.  On April 17, 2015, Ms. Margaret Cotter exercised vested stock options and received 35,100 shares of Voting Stock.  On April 16, 2015, Ms. Ellen Cotter exercised vested stock options and received 50,000 shares of Voting Stock. Ms. Ellen Cotter and Ms. Margaret Cotter currently intend to hold any shares of Voting Stock directly beneficially owned by them for investment purposes.

Ms. Ellen Cotter and Ms. Margaret Cotter currently intend to vote all of the shares of Voting Stock that they control, including all of the shares of Voting Stock owned by them individually, by the Estate and by the Trust, at the Company’s 2015 annual meeting of stockholders.

Each of Ms. Ellen Cotter and Ms. Margaret Cotter have been in the past and will be in the future involved on behalf of the Company in their respective capacities as senior executive officers of, directors of and/or consultants to the Company, as applicable, in reviewing and evaluating possible transactions involving the Company and identifying candidates to serve on the Company’s board of directors, including transactions of the sort described in clauses (a) through (f) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D.  In light of their responsibilities to the Company, Ms. Ellen Cotter and Ms. Margaret Cotter do not anticipate making any disclosures in connection with their participation in the transactions and activities of the Company separate and apart from relevant disclosures by the Company.
