Item 4 is hereby amended to add the following:

On October 15, 2018, RBI Opportunities entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”) with the Issuer, which closed on October 17, 2018. Pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement, RBI Opportunities purchased 5,541,562 Shares and warrants exercisable into 2,770,781 Shares for a total of $22 million. The warrants, which become exercisable on April 17, 2019, have an exercise price of $4.96 per Share and will expire on October 17, 2023. The warrants may not be exercised to the extent that the exercise thereof would cause RBI Opportunities’ and its affiliates’ beneficial ownership to collectively exceed 19.9% of the Issuer’s outstanding Shares; provided, however that RBI Opportunities has the right to increase the beneficial ownership limitation provided that any such increase (i) will not require shareholder approval under applicable Nasdaq Listing Rules, including Rule 5635, and (ii) shall not be effective until the 61st day after such notice is delivered to the Issuer. The Securities Purchase Agreement also provides RBI Opportunities with the right to purchase up to an additional 2,015,113 Shares and warrants exercisable into 1,007,557 Shares for total consideration of up to $8 million if it informs the Issuer of its intent to do so no later than 11:59 p.m. (Eastern Time) on October 26, 2018. The foregoing description of the Securities Purchase Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Securities Purchase Agreement, which is attached as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.
