ITEM 2.

IDENTITY AND BACKGROUND

The response set forth in Item 2 of the Schedule 13D is hereby supplemented with the following information:

This Schedule 13D is also being filed by:

Avia Holding Limited (“Avia”, and together with the Waha and Waha Capital, the “Reporting Persons”), a limited liability company organized under the laws of the Cayman Islands, which is joining as a Reporting Person pursuant to the attached Joint Filing Agreement. Avia is a wholly owned subsidiary of Waha Capital.

During the last five years, neither Avia, nor, to the best of Avia’s knowledge, any of its directors has been either (i) convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors) or (ii) a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction and as a result of such proceeding was or is subject to a judgment, decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or finding any violation of such laws.

 

ITEM 4.

PURPOSE OF TRANSACTION

Item 4 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and supplemented by the incorporation by reference of the information provided below in the response to Item 5.

 

ITEM 5.

INTEREST IN SECURITIES OF THE ISSUER

Item 5 of the Schedule 13D is hereby further amended and supplemented by adding to the final paragraph thereof the following information:

As previously described in Amendment No. 3 and Amendment No. 10, the Stockholders entered into funded collar confirmations (as subsequently amended, the “September 2014 Funded Collar Confirmations” and the transactions thereunder, the “September 2014 Funded Collar Transactions”) with each of Deutsche Bank AG, London Branch (“DB”), Nomura International plc (“Nomura”) and Citibank N.A., London Branch (“Citi”, and together with DB, and Nomura, the “September 2014 Funded Collar Counterparties”) that relate in the aggregate to 14,923,306 Ordinary Shares (the “September 2014 Collared Shares”).

As previously described in Amendment No. 13, Waha entered into Rule 10b5-1 sales plans (the “Collar Confirmation Sales Plans”) with each September 2014 Funded Collar Counterparty and such September 2014 Funded Collar Counterparty’s broker-dealer affiliate relating to the excess of the return obligation of the September 2014 Funded Collar Counterparty with respect to rehypothecated September 2014 Collared Shares over Waha’s delivery obligation, in each case, in respect of the applicable expired options, pursuant to the terms of the September 2014 Funded Collar Confirmation with such September 2014 Funded Collar Counterparty.


On August 15, 2019 (the “Novation Date”), Waha transferred by novation to its affiliate, Avia Holding Limited (“Avia”) each of the September 2014 Funded Collar Transactions pursuant to Novation and Security Release Deeds entered into by Waha and Avia with each September 2014 Funded Collar Counterparty (the “Novation and Security Release Deeds”). Following the Novation Date, Avia will be a party to each September 2014 Funded Collar Transaction as if it had entered into a new funded collar confirmation with each September 2014 Funded Collar Counterparty in form substantially identical to the September 2014 Funded Collar Confirmations. Further, on the Novation Date, Waha terminated its Collar Confirmation Sales Plan with each September 2014 Funded Collar Counetparty. The foregoing description of the Novation Documents does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the Novation Documents, copies of which are filed as Exhibit 99.34 – Exhibit 99.40 to this Schedule 13D. Waha retains ownership of and remains the recordholder for 201,171 Ordinary Shares of the Issuer.

Avia is the beneficial owner of 10,923,306 Ordinary Shares and Waha is the beneficial owner of 201,171 Ordinary Shares. Waha Capital, as the sole shareholder of each of Waha and Avia, may be deemed to beneficially own the Ordinary Shares beneficially owned by Waha and Avia. The number of Ordinary Shares beneficially held by the Reporting Persons represents 8.14% of the aggregate of 136,602,986 Ordinary Shares that the Reporting Persons understand to be issued and outstanding based on the number of Ordinary Shares that the Issuer reported were issued and outstanding as of June 30, 2019 in its Report of Foreign Private Issuer on Form 6-K filed on July 30, 2019.

 

ITEM 6.

CONTRACTS, ARRANGEMENTS, UNDERSTANDINGS OR RELATIONSHIPS WITH RESPECT TO SECURITIES OF THE ISSUER
