The following constitutes Amendment No. 5 to the Schedule 13D filed by the undersigned (the “Amendment No. 4”). This Amendment No. 4 amends the Schedule 13D as specifically set forth herein.
Item 5.
Interest in Securities of the Issuer.
Item 5 is hereby amended and restated to read as follows:
(a) The aggregate percentage of Common Stock reported owned by the Reporting Person is based upon 29,222,068 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of May 8, 2019, which is the total number of shares of Common Stock outstanding as reported in the Issuer’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 9, 2019. As of the date hereof, the Reporting Person may be deemed to have beneficially owned approximately 5.0%1 of the outstanding Common Stock.
(b) Number of shares of Common Stock as to which Paulson has:

(i)
Sole power to vote or direct the vote: 1,459,119 (see Note 1).

(ii)
Shared power to vote or direct the vote: 0

(iii)
Sole power to dispose or direct the disposition: 1,459,119 (see Note 1).

(iv)
Shared power to dispose or direct the disposition: 0
(c) The transactions effected by the Reporting Person during the past 60 days are set forth on Schedule B attached hereto.
(d) See Note 1.
(e) Effective July 1, 2019, the Reporting Persons ceased to be the beneficial owner of more than 5%2 of the Shares of Common Stock outstanding.
Note 1: Paulson, an investment advisor that is registered under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, furnishes investment advice to and manages the Funds. In its role as investment advisor, or manager, as the case may be, Paulson possesses voting and investment power over the securities of the Issuer described in this Schedule 13D that are owned by the Funds. The pecuniary interest of all securities reported in this Schedule is owned by the Funds. Except for the purpose of determining beneficial ownership under Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, Paulson disclaims beneficial ownership of all securities reported in this Schedule 13D.
For reporting purposes, the aggregate amount of Common Stock deemed to be beneficially owned by the Reporting Person is calculated based on an aggregate of 1,459,119 shares of Common Stock held by the Reporting Person as of the date hereof.



1 As of July 1, 2019, the Reporting Person may be deemed to hold 4.99% of the outstanding Common Stock.
