Item 4 is hereby amended to add the following at the end of Item 4:
On November 1, 2022, Voya Financial, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Parent”), Origami Squirrel Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation and an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub”), and the Issuer entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), pursuant to which, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub shall merge with and into the Issuer (the “Merger”), with the Issuer surviving the Merger and becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent. Under the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger, each issued and outstanding share of Series A Preferred Stock will be cancelled and extinguished and automatically converted into the right to receive cash in an amount equal to the Convertible Preferred Liquidation Amount (as defined in the Merger Agreement).
Concurrently with the execution of the Merger Agreement, the Record Holder entered into a Support Agreement with Parent, Merger Sub and the Issuer (the “Support Agreement”) pursuant to which, subject to the terms of the Support Agreement, the Record Holder agreed, during the time the Support Agreement is in effect, at any annual or special meeting of the shareholders of the Issuer, however called, including any adjournment or postponement thereof, that it will vote all shares of Series A Preferred Stock beneficially owned by it (the “Subject Shares”) to (a) adopt the Merger Agreement, and approve any actions related thereto as and when such Merger Agreement or such actions are submitted for the consideration and vote of the shareholders of the Issuer, (b) against any Acquisition Proposal (as defined in the Merger Agreement), or any other transaction, proposal, agreement or action made in opposition to adoption of the Merger Agreement or in competition or inconsistent with the Merger and the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement and (c) against any other action, agreement or transaction involving the Issuer that is intended to, or that would be reasonably likely to prevent, impede, or, in any material respect, interfere with or delay the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement.
The Support Agreement contains customary restrictions on the Subject Shares, including with respect to (a) the transfer of such Subject Shares, (b) the exercise of appraisal rights or dissenters’ rights with respect to such Subject Shares, (c) public announcement by the Record Holder with respect to the Support Agreement, the Merger Agreement or the transactions contemplated therein (subject to certain exceptions) and (d) the solicitation or making of any proposal or offer that constitutes, or could reasonably be expected to lead to, an Acquisition Proposal.
