The Series D Stock is convertible into shares of Common Stock by a holder, other than Goldman Sachs (as defined in Item 2) or their affiliates, that receives such shares by means of (i) a widespread public distribution, (ii) a transfer to an underwriter for the purpose of conducting a widespread public distribution, (iii) a transfer in which no transferee (or group of associated transferees) would receive 2% or more of any class of voting securities of the Company, or (iv) a transfer to a transferee that would control more than 50% of the voting securities of the Company without any transfer from such transferor or its affiliates, as applicable (each of (i) – (iv), a “Widely Dispersed Offering”).  The Series D Stock is generally non-voting while held by Goldman Sachs or their affiliates and while held by any holder who receives such shares by means other than a Widely Dispersed Offering except for the right of such holders to vote on specific

The principal business and principal office of Silver Point is located at Two Greenwich Plaza, 1st Floor, Greenwich, Connecticut 06830-6353.”

Item 3 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and restated in its entirety with the following:

“Pursuant to the Recapitalization (as defined and discussed in Item 4), the Reporting Persons converted, and thereby ceased to beneficially own, their Series B Stock.

The terms Closing Date, Transaction, Purchase Agreement, Silver Point Letter Agreement and Investors have the definitions ascribed to such terms in Item 3 of the Schedule 13D, prior to any amendments thereto.”

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.

Item 4 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended by adding the following immediately prior to the paragraph beginning “Each of the Reporting Persons reserves the right”:
 
“The Stockholder Meeting was held on May 18, 2011 (the “Recapitalization Closing Date”) and the Stockholder Approval Requirements were satisfied.  Following the Stockholder Meeting on the Recapitalization Closing Date, the closing of the Recapitalization occurred in accordance with the Recapitalization Agreement, as amended by the Amendment, and (i) the holders of Series B Stock (including the Reporting Persons) converted all of the shares of Series B Stock into Common Stock (the “Conversion Common Stock”) in accordance with the Series B Certificate, (ii) the GS Investors converted all of the shares of Series B-1 Stock into Series D Stock in accordance with the Series B-1 Certificate (the “Conversion Series D Stock:”), (iii) the Series D Certificate was amended, (iv) an amount equal to the dividends payable (at the

 
15

 

12.5% accrual rate) on the shares of Series B Stock and Series B-1 Stock with respect to the days between the end of the immediately preceding quarterly dividend period for which dividends were accrued and the Recapitalization Closing Date was paid in cash to the Investors, and (v) as an inducement to the Investors to effect such conversions in accordance with the Series B Certificate and the Series B-1 Certificate and to forgo the rights to liquidation preferences and future dividends provided for in the Series B Certificate and the Series B-1 Certificate, as applicable, the Company paid the Investors additional consideration in the form of cash and issued to the Investors additional shares of Common Stock or Series D Preferred Stock (together with the Conversion Common Stock, the Conversion Series D Stock, and all shares of stock of the Company into which any of the foregoing are converted, the “Recapitalization Shares”), as applicable (collectively, the “Recapitalization”).  No shares of Series B Stock or Series B-1 Stock remain outstanding.  The Recapitalization did or may result in one or more of the actions specified in clauses (a) – (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D, including without limitation a change to the capitalization or dividend policy of the Company.

As previously discussed, the Purchase Agreement provides the Investors certain rights to designate Board Representatives.  In connection with the closing of the Recapitalization, the Company filed a Certificate of Amendment to the Company’s Amended and Restated Certification of Incorporation (the “Certificate Amendment”) to amend the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation to remove Goldman Sachs’ right to designate a Board Representative.  The Reporting Persons have the right to designate two (2) to four (4) Board Representatives (the “THL Board Representatives”), which THL Board Representatives together shall be authorized to vote (with each THL Board Representative having equal votes) on all matters occasioning action by the Board a total number of votes equal to the number of votes as is proportionate to the Investors’ common stock ownership, calculated on a fully converted basis assuming the conversion of all shares of Series D Stock into common stock.  Therefore, each director designated by the Reporting Persons has multiple votes and each other director has one vote.  This mechanism is the same as the mechanism that existed prior to the Certificate Amendment, except that prior the Certificate Amendment, the number of votes to which the THL Board Representative were entitled was reduced by the one vote to which a Goldman Board Representative was entitled, if there was a Goldman Sachs Board Representative.  This summary of the Certificate Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Certificate Amendment, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 7.22 and incorporated by reference in its entirety into this Item 4.”

Item 5.  Interest in Securities of the Company.

Item 5 (a) – (b) is hereby amended and restated in its entirety with the following:
 
“(a) – (b)
