Item 3. SOURCE AND AMOUNT OF FUNDS OR OTHER CONSIDERATION
   
  Item 3 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and restated as follows:
   
  Funds for the purchase of the Common Stock reported herein were derived from general working capital of the GLG Fund.  A total of approximately $1,260,740 million was paid to acquire the shares of Common Stock reported herein.

 

  

Item 4. PURPOSE OF TRANSACTION
   
  Item 4 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and supplemented by the addition of the following:
   
  On December 6, 2016, the Reporting Persons served upon the Issuer a Notice of Intent to Sell, Trade or Otherwise Dispose of Tax Ownership of Stock or to Claim a Worthlessness Deduction Under Section 382(g)(4)(D) (the "Notice of Intent"), notifying the Issuer of its intent to sell Common Stock.  On December 12, 2016, the Issuer filed a statement on the public docket in their bankruptcy cases captioned In re Republic Airways Holdings Inc., et al., Case No. 16-10429 (SHL) (Bankr. S.D.N.Y.), approving the Notice of Intent.

  Paragraphs (a), (b) and (c) of Item 5 of the Schedule 13D are hereby amended and restated as follows:
   
(a) The percentages used in this Schedule 13D are calculated based upon 50,955,051 shares of Common Stock reported to be outstanding as of October 19, 2016 in the Issuer's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2016 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 20, 2016.
   

 

 

 

CUSIP No. 88165U109SCHEDULE 13DPage 6 of 8 Pages

 

   
  See rows (11) and (13) of the cover pages to this Schedule 13D for the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock and percentages of the Common Stock beneficially owned by each of the Reporting Persons.
