Item 3.Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration

The source and amount of funds used in purchasing the Stock were as follows:

Purchaser Source of Funds Amount
     
The Fund Working Capital $14,249,999.20

The shares of Stock over which Mr. Plexico has sole voting and dispositive power were granted to him for no consideration in connection with his service as a director of the Issuer.

Item 4.Purpose of Transaction

Pursuant to a Securities Purchase Agreement dated May 12, 2015 (the “Initial Purchase Agreement”), among the Issuer and certain purchasers, including the Fund (the “Purchasers”), the Filers acquired 15,540,540 shares of the Stock on May 14, 2015 in a private placement (the “Initial Private Placement”). Pursuant to a Securities Purchase Agreement dated November 20, 2015, the Fund purchased an additional 2,857,142 shares of the Stock in a subsequent private placement on November 24, 2015. The Fund purchased 300,000 shares of the Stock on June 17, 2016, and 1,250,000 shares of the Stock on March 17, 2017, in underwritten public offerings by the Issuer. The Filers acquired all of the Stock for investment purposes. On April 15, 2016, the Company effected a 1-for-8 reverse stock split. The number of shares reported above as being acquired by the Fund before that date reflect the pre-split numbers. The number of shares reported as beneficially owned by the Filers on their cover pages are the post-split numbers.

Pursuant to a Letter Agreement dated May 12, 2015, entered into between the Issuer and the Fund in connection with the Initial Private Placement, and amended as of March 21, 2017, for so long as the General Partner, any of its affiliates and any entity managed by the General Partner collectively own at least 15% of the Issuer’s outstanding equity securities, (1) the Fund has the option, but not the obligation, to designate a representative to serve on the Issuer’s board of directors (the “Board”) and (2) subject to certain exceptions, the Issuer and its subsidiaries may not contract with any party for any equity financing or issue any equity securities or securities convertible or exchangeable into or for equity securities (including debt with an equity component), unless the Issuer first notifies the Fund of such offering and provides the Fund an option to purchase up to the percentage of the securities so offered obtained by dividing (a) the aggregate number of shares of the Stock initially issued to the Fund on the date of the Initial Private Placement by (b) the aggregate number of shares of the Stock outstanding, on a fully diluted basis, on the date of the Initial Private Placement.

On March 14, 2016, the Board increased its size from five to six members and appointed Mr. Plexico to serve as a member of the Board, effective immediately. Mr. Plexico was appointed as a representative of the Fund, at the Fund’s election under the terms of the Letter Agreement.

Subject to the terms of a Registration Rights Agreement dated May 12, 2015, entered into among the Issuer and the Purchasers in connection with the Initial Private Placement, the Issuer has agreed to use its commercially reasonable efforts to file a registration statement for the Stock and to cause it to be declared effective under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, generally within 90 days after filing, and to use commercially reasonable efforts to keep it continuously effective until the Stock (a) has been sold, thereunder or pursuant to Rule 144, or (b) may be sold without compliance with Rule 144.

The Initial Purchase Agreement, Registration Rights Agreement and Letter Agreement dated May 12, 2015 are incorporated as exhibits hereto by reference to Exhibits 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8 of the Issuer’s Form 10-Q filed May 15, 2015. The Securities Purchase Agreement is incorporated as an exhibit hereto by reference to Exhibit 10.1 of the Issuer’s Form 8-K filed November 25, 2015.

The Filers may decide to purchase at any time or times additional shares of Stock or other securities of the Issuer. They also may at any time or times dispose of any or all securities of the Issuer in any lawful manner. In pursuing their investment purposes, the Filers may also engage in option, swap or other derivative securities transactions with respect to or otherwise deal in the Stock at times, and in such manner, as they deem advisable to benefit from changes in the Stock's market price, changes in the Issuer's operations, business strategy or prospects, or from the sale or merger of the Issuer. To evaluate such alternatives, the Filers routinely will monitor the Issuer's operations, prospects, business development, management, competitive and strategic matters, capital structure and prevailing market conditions, as well as alternative investment opportunities, the Filers' liquidity requirements and other investment considerations. Consistent with their investment and evaluation criteria, the Filers may discuss such matters with the Issuer's management, the Board, other stockholders, industry analysts, existing or potential strategic partners or competitors, investment and financing professionals, sources of credit and other investors. Such factors and discussions may result in, the Filers' selling or acquiring more Stock.

As the Fund’s representative on the Board, Mr. Plexico will consider and vote on, and may discuss with other Board members or stockholders, matters that may come before the Board. The Filers reserve to Mr. Plexico all rights of a member of the Board.

The Filers also may propose other changes in the Issuer’s operations, governance or capitalization, or one or more of the other actions described in sections (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D. The Filers also may formulate other plans and take such actions with respect to the Stock.

Item 5.Interest in Securities of the Issuer

The beneficial ownership of the Stock by each Filer at the date hereof is reflected on that Filer’s cover page. Clients of the General Partner purchased 1,250,000 shares of the Stock on March 17, 2017 in an underwritten public offering by the Issuer. There were no other transactions in the Stock by the Filers in the 60 days before the date on the cover page.

Item 6.Contracts, Arrangement, Understandings or Relationships with Respect to Securities of the Issuer

 

The General Partner is the general partner and investment adviser of the Fund and other limited partnerships pursuant to agreements of limited partnership that provide the General Partner the authority, among other things, to invest their assets in the Stock, to vote and dispose of the Stock and to file this statement on their behalf. Pursuant to such agreements, the General Partner is entitled to allocations or other compensation based on the Fund’s realized and unrealized gains. The Fund and the other limited partnerships hold the Stock for the benefit of their investors.

The Filers are filing this Schedule 13D jointly, but not as members of a group, and each disclaims membership in a group. Each Filer also disclaims beneficial ownership of the Stock except to the extent of that Filer’s pecuniary interest therein. In addition, the filing of this Schedule 13D on behalf of the Fund should not be construed as an admission that it is, and it disclaims that it is, a beneficial owner, as defined in Rule 13d-3 under the Act, of any of the Stock covered by this Schedule 13D.
