CUSIP NO. 037598109

(c)The principal business of each of Engaged Capital Flagship Master and Engaged Capital Co-Invest VIII is investing in securities. Each of Engaged Capital Fund and Engaged Capital Offshore is a private investment partnership that serves as a feeder fund of Engaged Capital Flagship Master. Engaged Capital is a registered investment advisor and serves as the investment adviser to each of Engaged Capital Flagship Master, Engaged Capital Co-Invest VIII, Engaged Capital Fund, Engaged Capital Offshore and the Engaged Capital Account.

Mr. Welling is a citizen of the United States of America. The citizenship of the persons listed on Schedule A is set forth therein.

Item 3.Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

The Shares purchased by each of Engaged Capital Flagship Master and Engaged Capital Co-Invest VIII and held in the Engaged Capital Account were purchased with working capital (which may, at any given time, include margin loans made by brokerage firms in the ordinary course of business). The aggregate purchase price of the 903,276 Shares beneficially owned by Engaged Capital Flagship Master is approximately $39,253,009, including brokerage commissions. The aggregate purchase price of the 720,608 Shares beneficially owned by Engaged Capital Co-Invest VIII is approximately $30,328,286, including brokerage commissions. The aggregate purchase price of the 87,136 Shares held in the Engaged Capital Account is approximately $3,771,192, including brokerage commissions.

Item 4.Purpose of Transaction.

The Reporting Persons purchased the Shares based on the Reporting Persons’ belief that the Shares, when purchased, were undervalued and represented an attractive investment opportunity. The Reporting Persons believe that the Issuer owns several market leading businesses that are differentiated in their respective industries and are attractive, high quality assets. The Reporting Persons believe that market participants do not appreciate that the Issuer’s businesses are significantly better positioned today than in the past as cost reductions have resulted in improved profitability and diversification efforts have positively altered the Issuer’s business mix into more attractive end markets with reduced cyclicality and appealing growth potential. The Reporting Persons believe that the Shares trade at a substantial valuation discount to fair value, both to a broad set of building products and construction-related peers, and to the Issuer’s own historical valuation multiples. The Reporting Persons believe that the current valuation discount is unwarranted due to the Issuer’s high quality assets, potential earnings growth, and strong balance sheet and believe that the Shares offer a positively skewed risk-reward investment opportunity at current prices. The Reporting Persons have discussed, and intend to continue to discuss, with the Issuer’s management team and Board of Directors (the “Board”) ways to potentially improve the Issuer’s capital allocation practices, operational improvement plans, growth initiatives, investor communications, portfolio optimization and corporate governance, among other topics, all of which the Reporting Persons believe will help close the Issuer’s valuation gap.

9

CUSIP NO. 037598109

 

Depending upon overall market conditions, other investment opportunities available to the Reporting Persons, and the availability of Shares at prices that would make the purchase or sale of Shares desirable, the Reporting Persons may endeavor to increase or decrease their position in the Issuer through, among other things, the purchase or sale of Shares on the open market or in private transactions or otherwise, on such terms and at such times as the Reporting Persons may deem advisable.

 

No Reporting Person has any present plan or proposal which would relate to or result in any of the matters set forth in subparagraphs (a) - (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D except as set forth herein or such as would occur upon or in connection with completion of, or following, any of the actions discussed herein. The Reporting Persons intend to review their investment in the Issuer on a continuing basis. Depending on various factors including, without limitation, the Issuer’s financial position and investment strategy, the price levels of the Shares, conditions in the securities markets and general economic and industry conditions, the Reporting Persons may in the future take such actions with respect to their investment in the Issuer as they deem appropriate including, without limitation, engaging in additional communications with management and the Board of the Issuer, engaging in discussions with stockholders of the Issuer and others about the Issuer and the Reporting Persons’ investment, making proposals to the Issuer concerning changes to the capital allocation strategy, capitalization, ownership structure, including a sale of the Issuer as a whole or in parts, Board structure (including Board composition) or operations of the Issuer, purchasing additional Shares, selling some or all of their Shares, engaging in short selling of or any hedging or similar transaction with respect to the Shares, or changing their intention with respect to any and all matters referred to in Item 4.

 

Item 5.Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

(a)The aggregate percentage of Shares reported owned by each person named herein is based upon 28,417,366 Shares outstanding as of January 10, 2018, which is the total number of Shares outstanding as reported in the Issuer’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 11, 2018.

Each of the Reporting Persons specifically disclaims beneficial ownership of the securities reported herein that he or it does not directly own.
