The following constitutes Amendment No. 6 to the Schedule 13D filed by the undersigned (“Amendment No. 6”). This Amendment No. 6 amends the Schedule 13D as specifically set forth herein.

Item 2.Identity and Background.

Item 2 is hereby amended and restated to read as follows:

(a)       This statement is filed by Raging Capital Management, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Raging Capital”), William C. Martin and Kenneth H. Traub. Each of the foregoing is referred to as a “Reporting Person” and collectively as the “Reporting Persons.” Each of the Reporting Persons is party to that certain Joint Filing Agreement as further described in Item 6. Accordingly, the Reporting Persons are hereby filing a joint Schedule 13D.

Raging Capital is the Investment Manager of Raging Capital Master Fund, Ltd., a Cayman Islands exempted company (“Raging Master”), in whose name the Issuer’s Common Stock, $0.001 par value per share (the “Shares”) are held. William C. Martin is the Chairman, Chief Investment Officer and Managing Member of Raging Capital. Raging Master has delegated to Raging Capital the sole authority to vote and dispose of the securities held by Raging Master pursuant to an Investment Management Agreement, dated November 9, 2012, as amended and restated on December 21, 2016 (the “IMA”). The IMA may be terminated by any party thereto effective at the close of business on the last day of any fiscal quarter by giving the other party not less than sixty-one days’ written notice. As a result, each of Raging Capital and William C. Martin may be deemed to beneficially own the Shares held by Raging Master.

The filing of this Schedule 13D shall not be construed as an admission that the Reporting Persons are, for purposes of Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the beneficial owners of any of the securities reported herein. Each of the Reporting Persons specifically disclaims beneficial ownership of the securities reported herein. Without limiting the foregoing sentence, Raging Master specifically disclaims beneficial ownership of the securities of the Issuer held by it by virtue of its inability to vote or dispose of such securities as a result of the IMA.

Set forth on Schedule A annexed to the initial Schedule 13D (“Schedule A”) is the name and present principal business, occupation or employment and the name, principal business and address of any corporation or other organization in which such employment is conducted of the executive officers of Raging Capital. To the best of the Reporting Persons’ knowledge, except as otherwise set forth herein, none of the persons listed on Schedule A beneficially owns any securities of the Issuer or is a party to any contract, agreement or understanding required to be disclosed herein.

(b)       The address of the principal office of each of the Reporting Persons is Ten Princeton Avenue, P.O. Box 228, Rocky Hill, New Jersey 08553.

CUSIP NO. 452521107

(c)       The principal business of Raging Capital is serving as the Investment Manager of Raging Master. The principal occupation of William C. Martin is serving as the Chairman, Chief Investment Officer and Managing Member of Raging Capital. The principal occupation of Kenneth H. Traub is serving as a Managing Partner at Raging Capital. Mr. Traub is also a director of the Issuer.

(d)       No Reporting Person nor any person listed on Schedule A has, during the last five years, been convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors).

(e)       No Reporting Person nor any person listed on Schedule A has, during the last five years, been party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction and as a result of such proceeding was or is subject to a judgment, decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or finding any violation with respect to such laws.

(f)       Raging Capital is organized under the laws of the State of Delaware. Each of William C. Martin and Kenneth H. Traub is a citizen of the United States of America.

Item 5.Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

Items 5(a) - (c) are hereby amended and restated to read as follows:

(a)       The aggregate percentage of Shares reported owned by each person named herein is based upon 30,473,548 Shares outstanding as of May 15, 2018, which is the total number of Shares outstanding as reported in the Issuer’s Schedule 14A filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 29, 2018.

As of the close of business on the date hereof, each of Raging Capital and William C. Martin may be deemed to beneficially own the 4,779,346 Shares, constituting approximately 15.7% of the Shares outstanding, held by Raging Master by virtue of their relationships with Raging Master discussed in further detail in Item 2.

As of the close of business on the date hereof, Kenneth H. Traub does not beneficially own any Shares.

(b)       Raging Capital and William C. Martin may be deemed to share the power to vote and dispose of the Shares held by Raging Master.

(c)       Except for the transaction disclosed in Item 6 below, the Reporting Persons have not entered into any transactions in the securities of the Issuer since the filing of Amendment No. 5 to the Schedule 13D.

Item 6.Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships With Respect to Securities of the Issuer.

Item 6 is hereby amended to add the following:

6

CUSIP NO. 452521107

Effective July 16, 2018, the Issuer awarded Kenneth H. Traub an option to purchase 40,000 Shares at an exercise price of $15.25 per Share in his capacity as a director of the Issuer. 25% of the Shares will vest and become exercisable on June 29, 2019; then 2.0833% of the Shares will vest and become exercisable monthly thereafter until 100% vested, subject to continued service through each vesting date.

On the date hereof, the Reporting Persons entered into a Joint Filing Agreement in which the Reporting Persons agreed to the joint filing on behalf of each of them of statements on Schedule 13D, and any amendments thereto, with respect to the securities of the Issuer. A copy of this agreement is attached as an exhibit hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.
