Other than 2,116,257 Shares (including 998,543 unvested restricted Shares) awarded to Mr. Walsh in connection with his service as an officer and director of the Issuer, the Shares directly owned by Mr. Walsh were purchased with personal funds. The aggregate purchase price of the 1,015,060 Shares purchased by Mr. Walsh is approximately $3,037,554, excluding brokerage commissions.

Item 5.Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

(a)       The aggregate percentage of Shares reported owned by each person named herein is based upon 29,415,948 Shares outstanding as of the date hereof, which is the total number of Shares outstanding based on information provided by the Issuer.

As of the close of business on the date hereof, Atlas Fund III beneficially owns directly 1,271,182 Shares, Atlas Fund II may be deemed to beneficially own 2,800,000 Shares that it has agreed to purchase, subject to closing, pursuant to the SPA (the “SPA Shares”), and Mr. Walsh beneficially owns directly 3,131,317 Shares (including 998,543 unvested restricted Shares), constituting approximately 4.3%, 9.5% and 10.6%, respectively, of the Shares outstanding.

(c)       On December 13, 2019, Mr. Walsh received 609,375 restricted Shares in his capacity as an officer of the Issuer. These restricted Shares will vest in three equal annual installments commencing on December 13, 2020, the first anniversary of the grant date.

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

Item 6 is hereby amended to add the following:

As previously disclosed, on December 11, 2019, Atlas Fund II entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “SPA”) with HG Vora Special Opportunities Master Fund, Ltd. (“HG Vora”) pursuant to which Atlas Fund II agreed to purchase 2,800,000 SPA Shares from HG Vora for $1.50 per Share, subject to the closing conditions set forth therein. As previously disclosed, the closing of the SPA was delayed as additional time is needed to effectuate certain mechanics involving the transfer of the SPA Shares. As of the date hereof, the closing of the SPA is still pending.

As previously disclosed, on December 11, 2019, Atlas Fund II entered into a Call Option Agreement with HG Vora pursuant to which HG Vora granted Atlas Fund II an irrevocable option to purchase from HG Vora up to 1,500,000 Shares at an exercise price of $1.50 per Share (the “Option”). The Option was not exercised by Atlas Fund II and it expired in accordance with its terms on December 23, 2019.
