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, Waha 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. 23, 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”). On the Novation Date, Avia 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 (the “Avia Funded Collar Confirmations” and together with the Novation and Security Release Deeds, the “Novation Documents”) and thus became a party to each September 2014 Funded Collar Transaction.

As previously described in Amendment No, 24, on September 9, 2019, Avia entered into a sales plan with Deutsche Bank Securities, Inc. (the “DB Sales Plan”) to sell the Ordinary Shares held by Avia in relation to the excess of the return obligation of the September 2014 Funded Collar Counterparty with respect to rehypothecated September 2014 Collared Shares over Avia’s delivery obligation.

From the date of the most recent amendment to this Schedule 13D through September 16, 2019, the Reporting Persons disposed of 528,616 Ordinary Shares pursuant to the settlement of the Avia Funded Collar Confirmations and 826,178 Ordinary Shares pursuant to the DB Sales Plan with respect to the Avia Funded Collar Confirmations in a series of open market transactions. Details by date, listing the number of Ordinary Shares returned to the September 2014 Funded Collar Counterparties are provided below. The Reporting Persons undertake to provide, upon request by the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Issuer, or a security holder of the Issuer, full information regarding the number of shares sold at each separate price for this transaction.
