On or about April 1, 2020, we mailed a proxy statement (Original Proxy Statement) to our stockholders describing the matters to be voted on at the Annual Meeting, including a table describing the security ownership of management and directors. This Supplement is dated as of April 23, 2020 and amends and supplements information contained in the Original Proxy Statement. Except as specifically amended or supplemented by the information contained in this Supplement, all information set forth in the Original Proxy Statement remains accurate and should be considered in voting your Common Stock or Series A Preferred Stock.

This Supplement is being provided to you to revise the section of the Original Proxy Statement describing the security ownership of management and directors. The amended and restated description of the security ownership of management and directors under the caption “SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF MANAGEMENT AND DIRECTORS” below contains revisions to include performance-based restricted stock awards in our officers’ total security ownership, which shares of Common Stock are entitled to vote on the proposals contained in the Original Proxy Statement.

If you have already submitted your proxy, you do not need to take any action unless you wish to change your vote. If you wish to change your vote based on any of the information contained in this Supplement, you may change your vote or revoke your proxy in accordance with the instructions in the Original Proxy Statement. See “Questions and Answers—Can I change my vote after I have voted?” in the Original Proxy Statement.

Based on 37,580,669 shares of our Common Stock issued and outstanding as of March 23, 2020. Pursuant to Exchange Act Rule 13d-3(d)(1), shares of Common Stock of which a person has the right to acquire beneficial ownership at any time by May 22, 2020 are deemed outstanding and beneficially owned by the person for the purpose of computing the number of shares and percentage beneficially owned by such person, but are not deemed outstanding for purposes of computing the percentage beneficially owned by any other person.


Includes unvested shares of restricted Common Stock as of March 23, 2020. The holders have the sole right to vote such shares of restricted Common Stock. Unvested shares of restricted Common Stock, apart from shares held by Mr. Pierson, include shares of performance-based restricted stock awarded in 2019, which are subject to the Stock Price Condition (as defined in the Original Proxy Statement). As of the Record Date, we do not anticipate that the Stock Price Condition will be satisfied, as required for any of the shares of performance-based restricted stock to vest.
