This Amendment No. 1 amends and supplements the Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on October 26, 2021 (the “Original Schedule 13D”). Except as set forth herein, the Original Schedule 13D is unmodified and remains in full force and effect. Each capitalized term used but not defined herein has the meaning ascribed to such term in the Original Schedule 13D.

 

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.

 

Item 4 of the Original Schedule 13D is hereby amended and supplemented as follows:

 

The information set forth in Item 6 of this Schedule 13D is incorporated herein by reference.

 

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

 

Items 5(a) and 5(b) of the Original Schedule 13D are hereby amended and restated in their entirety as follows:

 

(a) The following information is as of the date hereof and assumes there are 126,697,441 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of March 22, 2021, based on information set forth in the Issuer’s final prospectus dated March 17, 2021, as filed with the SEC on March 19, 2021.

 

Holdings is the direct beneficial owner of 45,234,022 shares of Common Stock. The Common Stock held by Holdings represents approximately 35.7% of the Common Stock outstanding as of the date of this Statement.

 

Fund XI/B and Fund XI/C each hold an economic interest in Holdings and possess the right to appoint certain managers to Holdings’ board of managers. Each of Fund XI/B and Fund XI/C is controlled by its general partner, Partners XI/B and Partners XI/A&C, respectively. Partners XI/B and Partners XI/A&C are controlled by their general partner, Investment XI. As such, each of Fund XI/B, Fund XI/C, Partners XI/B, Partners XI/A&C and Investment XI may be deemed to possess indirect beneficial ownership of the Common Stock held by Holdings.

 

Decisions of Investment XI are made by a vote of a majority of its managers, and, as a result, no single person has voting or dispositive authority over such securities. Messrs. David A. Donnini, Collin E. Roche, Craig A. Bondy, Constantine S. Mihas, Mark M. Anderson, Aaron D. Cohen, Sean L. Cunningham, and Benjamin J. Daverman are each managing directors of GTCR LLC, which provides management services to Investment XI and each disclaims beneficial ownership of the securities controlled by such entity, except to the extent of his pecuniary interest in such securities. The filing of this Statement shall not be construed as an admission that any such individual is, for the purpose of Section 13(d) or 13(g) of the Exchange Act, the beneficial owner of any securities covered by this Statement.

 

(b) By virtue of the relationship among the Reporting Persons described in Item 2, each such Reporting Person may be deemed to share the power to vote or direct the vote and to share the power to dispose of or direct the disposition of the 45,234,022 shares of Common Stock as set forth in rows 7 through 13 of the cover pages of this Statement.

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

 

Item 6 of the Original Schedule 13D is hereby amended by inserting the following as a new paragraph at the end of Item 6:

 

Underwriting Agreement and Lock-Up Agreement

 

Pursuant to an Underwriting Agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”), dated as of March 17, 2021 by and among the Issuer and Holdings, and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC and Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC (the “Representatives”), as representatives of the several underwriters named therein (collectively, the “Underwriters”), the Issuer and Holdings agreed to sell to the Underwriters in an underwritten public offering an aggregate of 20,000,000 shares of Common Stock (the “Public Offering”) consisting of 10,000,000 shares to be sold by the Issuer and 10,000,000 shares to be sold by Holdings. The sale of the shares of Common Stock to the Underwriters closed on March 22, 2021.

 

In connection with the Public Offering, Holdings, as well as the directors and executive officers of the Issuer, entered into a lock-up agreement (the “Lock-up Agreement”) with the Representatives. Under the Lock-up Agreement, each party to the Lock-up Agreement agreed, subject to certain exceptions, not to sell or transfer any shares of Common Stock or securities convertible into, exchangeable for, or exercisable for shares of Common Stock, for 90 days after March 17, 2021 without first obtaining the written consent of the Representatives.

 

The summaries of the Underwriting Agreement and Lock-up Agreement contained in this Item 6 are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Underwriting Agreement and the Lock-up Agreement, each of which is filed as an exhibit hereto and incorporated by reference herein.

 

Item 7. Material to be Filed as Exhibits

 

Exhibit 1   Underwriting Agreement, dated as of March 17, 2021 (incorporated by reference to Exhibit 1.1 to the Issuer’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on March 23, 2021).
     
Exhibit 2   Form of Lock-up Agreement (incorporated by reference to Exhibit A to Exhibit 1.1 to the Issuer’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on March 23, 2021).
