SCHEDULE 13D/A

 

Introductory Note

 

This Amendment No. 13 to Schedule 13D (this “Amendment No. 13”) amends and supplements the statement on Schedule 13D filed on August 9, 2019, as amended by Amendment No. 1 filed on April 9, 2020, Amendment No. 2 filed on May 21, 2020, Amendment No. 3 filed on May 28, 2020, Amendment No. 4 filed on August 31, 2020, Amendment No. 5 filed on March 11, 2021, Amendment No. 6 filed on May 26, 2022, Amendment No. 7 filed on July 13, 2022, Amendment No. 8 filed on July 18, 2022, Amendment No. 9 filed on July 21, 2022, Amendment No. 10 filed on July 26, 2022, Amendment No. 11 filed on July 29, 2022 and Amendment No. 12 filed on August 3, 2022 (together, the “Original Schedule 13D”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).

 

This Amendment No. 13 is being filed in relation to the settlement of a portion of existing and previously reported prepaid variable share forward transactions with Citibank, RBC and JPMorgan, by QH Hungary (the “Partial Settlement”).

 

After the Partial Settlement, QH Hungary remained the direct beneficial owner of a total of 3,979,181 Shares and Gulf Hungary remained the indirect beneficial owner of the same 3,979,181 Shares. Gulf Hungary continues to be the direct beneficial owner of a separate 37,186 Shares. All 3,979,181 Shares directly owned by QH Hungary remain subject to the Shareholder Agreement (as defined in the Original Schedule 13D) to which QH Hungary also became a party by executing a joinder thereto.

 

This Amendment No. 13 is filed jointly by the Reporting Persons. All disclosure for items contained in the Original Schedule 13D is incorporated herein by reference, subject to the amended and additional information provided for such item in this Amendment No. 13. Capitalized terms used and not defined herein shall have the meanings given to such terms in the Original Schedule 13D.

 

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction

 

Item 4 of the Original Schedule 13D is hereby amended to add the following:

 

This Amendment No. 13 relates to the Partial Settlement, the purpose of which is to settle a portion of existing and previously reported prepaid variable share forward transactions with Citibank, RBC and JPMorgan by delivering shares of Common Stock, to Citibank, RBC and JPMorgan.

 

On August 4, 2022, August 5 and August 8, QH Hungary settled a portion of existing and previously reported prepaid variable share forward transactions with Citibank, RBC and JPMorgan (each, a “PVF Counter Party”) by delivering (i) 6,205 shares of Common Stock to Citibank on each of such dates, (ii) 4,347 shares of Common Stock to RBC on each of such dates and (iii) 1,716 shares of Common Stock to JPMorgan on each of such dates (delivering an aggregate of 36,804 shares of Common Stock during such three-day period), in order to settle its obligations under the previously reported prepaid variable share forward transactions with each of the respective PVF Counter Parties as of such dates. These shares represented a portion of the total shares underlying the previously reported prepaid variable share forward transactions with Citibank, RBC and JPMorgan.

QH Hungary is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Gulf Hungary, which is owned by Gulf Houghton, which is a subsidiary of Gulf Oil International. Gulf Oil International is owned by Amas Holding SPF (“Amas Holding”), a private wealth holding company, which in turn is beneficially owned by multiple members of the Hinduja family, with no single individual having a beneficial interest in Amas Holding of 5% or more.

(c) Except as described in Item 3, Item 4 and Item 6, neither the Reporting Persons nor, to the knowledge of the Reporting Persons, any person listed in Item 2(a)-(c), have effected any transactions in the Common Stock during the past 60 days.

 

(d) Except as described in Item 3, Item 4 and Item 6, no other person has the right to receive or the power to direct the receipt of dividends from, or the proceeds from the sale of, the securities covered by this Amendment No. 13.

 

(e) Not applicable.

 

Item 6. Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships With Respect to Securities of the Issuer.
