Item 5. INTEREST IN SECURITIES OF THE ISSUER
   
 

Item 5 is hereby amended by deleting the text thereof in its entirety and substituting the following in lieu thereof:

 

On December 23, 2016 (the “Transaction Date”), the Fund entered into and consummated separate agreements with five individuals (each, a “Purchaser”), pursuant to which, the Fund has sold, in a private sale, to each Purchaser, 2,023,000 shares of Common Stock for an aggregate consideration from each Purchaser of $100 (each, a “Transaction”). As a result of these Transactions, the Fund no longer holds any shares of Common Stock. Accordingly, neither the Fund nor any of the Reporting Persons beneficially own any shares of Common Stock. Each of the Purchasers are unaffiliated with the Fund or the Reporting Persons.

Other than as set forth above, there were no transactions in the Common Stock (or securities convertible into, exercisable for or exchangeable for Common Stock) by the Reporting Persons or any other person or entity controlled by the Reporting Persons, or any person or entity for which the Reporting Persons possesses voting or investment control, during the period commencing sixty (60) days prior to the Transaction Date, the date of the event which required the filing of this Schedule 13D Amendment No. 1.
