CUSIP NO. 928497 30 4
 
The following constitutes Amendment No. 8 to the Schedule 13D filed by the undersigned (“Amendment No. 8”).  This Amendment No. 8 amends the Schedule 13D as specifically set forth herein.
 
Item 3.
Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.
 
Item 3 is hereby amended and restated to read as follows:
 
The aggregate purchase price of the 10,391,127 Shares owned directly by Raging Master is approximately $22,342,775, including brokerage commissions.  Such Shares were acquired with working capital and capital contributions originally contributed from shareholders of Raging Master.  The aggregate purchase price of the $8,639,676 principal amount of the Debentures owned directly by Raging Master is approximately $7,411,684, including brokerage commissions.  The Debentures owned directly by Raging Master were acquired with working capital and capital contributions originally contributed from shareholders of Raging Master.
 
Item 5.
Interest in Securities of the Issuer.
 
Item 5(a) is hereby amended and restated to read as follows:
 
(a)           The aggregate percentage of Shares reported owned by each person named herein is based upon 53,985,344 Shares outstanding, which is the total number of Shares to be outstanding following the public offering of Shares (the “Offering”) as reported in the Issuer’s Prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424(b)(5) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 20, 2013.
 
As of the date hereof, Raging Master directly owned 10,391,127 Shares, constituting approximately 19.2% of the Shares outstanding.  By virtue of their relationships with Raging Master discussed in further detail in Item 2, each of Raging Capital and William C. Martin may be deemed to beneficially own the Shares directly owned by Raging Master.
 
As of the date hereof, Raging Master directly owned an aggregate of $8,639,676 principal amount of the Debentures.  Such Debentures are convertible into an aggregate of 1,919,928 Shares, provided, however, that a holder of Debentures will only be entitled to exercise its conversion rights to the extent (and only to the extent) that the receipt of Shares upon exercise of the conversion right would not cause such holder (including its affiliates) to become, directly or indirectly, a “beneficial owner” (within the meaning of Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder) of more than 9.99% of the Shares outstanding at such time.  Raging Master currently directly owns in excess of 9.99% of the Shares outstanding.
 
The filing of this Schedule 13D shall not be deemed an admission that Raging Master, Raging Capital and Mr. Martin are, for purposes of Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act, the beneficial owners of any securities of the Issuer he or it does not directly own.  Each of Raging Master, Raging Capital and Mr. Martin specifically disclaims beneficial ownership of the securities of the Issuer reported herein that he or it does not directly own.
 
Item 5(c) is hereby amended to add the following:
 
(c)           On June 20, 2013, Raging Master purchased 3,900,000 Shares in the Offering at a price of $2.15 per Share.
