Item 8.01. Other Events.

On March 25, 2019, the Company received a subpoena issued by the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) requesting certain documents and information relating to the Company and to volatility in the Company’s share price and volume during September 2018. Three Company executives also received a subpoena for testimony in connection with the investigation.  The Company is fully cooperating with the SEC regarding this non-public, fact-finding inquiry, but cannot predict or determine whether any proceeding may be instituted by the SEC in connection with the subpoena or the outcome of any proceeding that may be instituted.  The Company noted that affiliates of the Company currently own 15.4% of its outstanding common shares, and none of its executive officers or other insiders have ever sold any stock.  The SEC has informed the Company that this inquiry should not be construed as an indication that any violations of law have occurred or that the SEC has any negative opinion of any person, entity or security.




Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
