Item 3.Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration

The Reporting Persons acquired beneficial ownership of 4,858,739 of the Issuer’s shares described in this Schedule 13D as a result of the exercise by the Trust of certain remedies following a default by The Keffi Group VI LLC (“Keffi VI) of loan obligations as described in more detail under Item 4 below. The loans were funded by the personal funds of Lee and funds in the Trust available for investment. Purchases of additional shares were funded by the personal funds of Lee and funds in the Trust available for investment.

Item 4.Purposes of Transactions

On January 31, 2014, Lee, the Trust, Keffi VI and other parties entered into a Loan and Forbearance Agreement pursuant to which Keffi VI and another debtor issued (i) a promissory note to the Trust in connection with a loan made pursuant to such Loan and Forbearance Agreement and (ii) an amended and restated promissory note to Lee which replaced certain promissory notes previously issued to Lee. The Trust and Lee loaned additional amounts to Keffi VI and another debtor in August 2014 pursuant to a demand promissory note.

 
 

The obligations of Keffi VI and the other debtor under the notes issued to the Trust and Lee were secured by, among other things, a pledge of the Ordinary Shares of the Issuer owned by Keffi VI. In connection with such pledge, Keffi VI, Lee, the Trust and JPMorgan Chase Bank N.A.

On January 19, 2016, following a default under the Loans, Lee and the Trust delivered a Notice of Exclusive Control to the Intermediary which gave Lee and the Trust the right to direct the vote and disposition of the Ordinary Shares of the Issuer held in the account.

On September 15, 2016, the Trust exercised its rights as a secured creditor and acquired legal title to the Shares.
