Item 3. SOURCE AND AMOUNT OF FUNDS OR OTHER CONSIDERATION
   
  Item 3 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and supplemented by the addition of the following:
   
  The Reporting Person used a total of $10,000,000 to acquire the shares of Series A Preferred Stock (as defined in Item 4) issued to the Reporting Person on April 2, 2018. The source of the funds used to acquire the shares of Series A Preferred Stock was the working capital of the Fir Tree Funds.

 

Item 4. PURPOSE OF TRANSACTION
   
  Item 4 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and supplemented by the addition of the following:
   
  On March 29, 2018, the Issuer entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the "Securities Purchase Agreement") with certain Fir Tree Funds, pursuant to which such Fir Tree Funds agreed to purchase an aggregate of 10,000 shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share (the "Series A Preferred Stock"), at a price of $1,000 (the “Stated Value”) per share (the "March 2018 Private Placement"), and the right, subject to the mutual agreement of the Issuer and the Fir Tree Funds, to acquire up to an additional 5,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock at any time during the period beginning on April 2, 2018, the closing date of the March 2018 Private Placement (the "March 2018 PIPE Closing Date") and ending on the six month anniversary of the March 2018 PIPE Closing Date (the "Additional Purchase Option").
   

 

CUSIP No. 27888D101SCHEDULE 13D/APage 4 of 6 Pages

 

  In accordance with the terms of the Certificate of Designation of Preferences, Rights and Limitations of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the "Certificate of Designation") for the Series A Preferred Stock, the Series A Preferred Stock is initially convertible, at the option of the holder at any time, into a number of shares of Common Stock determined by dividing the Stated Value plus any dividends accrued but unpaid thereon by the conversion price of $1.15 (subject to adjustment for stock splits, combinations, certain distributions or similar events).

 

  Holders of Series A Preferred Stock will be entitled to cumulative dividends payable semi-annually in arrears at a rate of (i) 10% per year, if paid in cash, or (ii) 12% per year, if, at the election of the Issuer, paid through the issuance of additional shares of Series A Preferred Stock. Holders of Series A Preferred Stock will also be entitled to receive dividends or distributions declared or paid on Common Stock on an as-converted basis. Holders of Series A Preferred Stock will be entitled to vote with holders of Common Stock and are entitled to one vote per share of Common Stock into which a share of Series A Preferred Stock is then-convertible on any matter on which holders of the capital stock of the Company are entitled to vote. The Issuer may redeem shares of Series A Preferred Stock at any time in cash at a price per share equal to the greater of (i) the Stated Value plus any accrued and unpaid dividends thereon and (ii) the product of 1.5 times the Stated Value.
   
  The foregoing descriptions are summaries of the Securities Purchase Agreement and the Certificate of Designation, and do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entireties by reference to the full texts thereof.  The Securities Purchase Agreement and the Certificate of Designation, which are referenced as Exhibit 13, Exhibit 14 to this Schedule 13D, respectively, and which are filed as Exhibits 10.1 and 3.1, respectively, to the Issuer's Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on April 2, 2018 (the "April 2018 Form 8-K") are incorporated herein by reference.
   
  In October 2017, Andrew Colvin and David Proman, employees of Fir Tree, resigned from the Board and Brian R. Stewart and Todd R. Snyder were designated by Fir Tree pursuant to the A&R Stockholder Rights Agreement to replace them.
