Item 4.
Purpose of Transaction.
 
The Reporting Persons purchased the securities of the Issuer reported herein based on their belief that such securities are dramatically undervalued by the public market. The Reporting Persons believe the spin-off transaction recently announced by management will create value substantially above the current share price, and seek to engage in a constructive dialogue with the Board of Directors of the Issuer (the “Board”) and the Issuer’s management regarding this transaction as well as a number of other additional available opportunities to maximize shareholder value.
 
Depending upon overall market conditions, other investment opportunities available to the Reporting Persons, and the availability of securities of the Issuer at prices that would make the purchase or sale of such securities desirable, the Reporting Persons may endeavor (i) to increase or decrease their respective positions in the Issuer through, among other things, the purchase or sale of securities of the Issuer on the open market or in private transactions, including through a trading plan created under Rule 10b5-1(c) or otherwise, on such terms and at such times as the Reporting Persons may deem advisable and/or (ii) to enter into transactions that increase or hedge their economic exposure to the Common Stock without affecting their beneficial ownership of shares of Common Stock.
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
No Reporting Person has any present plan or proposal which would relate to or result in any of the matters set forth in subparagraphs (a) - (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D except as set forth herein or such as would occur upon or in connection with completion of, or following, any of the actions discussed herein. The Reporting Persons may take positions or make proposals with respect to potential changes in the operations, management, the certificate of incorporation and bylaws, Board composition, ownership, capital or corporate structure, dividend policy, strategy and plans of the Issuer as a means of enhancing shareholder value or may change their intention with respect to any and all matters referred to in Item 4. Although the Reporting Persons had no plans or proposals at the time of their various purchases and do not have plans or proposals at present, the Reporting Persons intend to review their investment in the Issuer on a continuing basis and may from time to time in the future express their views to and/or meet with management, the Board, other shareholders or third parties, including, potential acquirers, service providers and financing sources, and/or formulate plans or proposals regarding the Issuer, its assets or its securities. Such proposals or positions may include one or more plans that relate to or would result in any of the actions required to be reported herein.
 
ITEM 5.
Interest in Securities of the Issuer.
 
(a)           As of the close of business on November 20, 2015, Elliott, Elliott International and EICA collectively have combined economic exposure in the Issuer of approximately 6.4% of the shares of Common Stock outstanding.
 
The aggregate percentage of Common Stock reported owned by each person named herein is based upon 1,310,128,840 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of October 16, 2015, which is the total number of shares of Common Stock outstanding as reported in the Issuer’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 23, 2015.
 
As of the close of business on November 20, 2015, Elliott beneficially owned 22,801,788 shares of Common Stock, including 6,681,300 shares of Common Stock underlying currently exercisable options and 12,461,000 shares of Common Stock underlying physically settled swaps that Elliott may be deemed to beneficially own upon satisfaction of certain conditions, constituting approximately 1.7% of the shares of Common Stock outstanding.
 
As of the close of business on November 20, 2015, Elliott International beneficially owned 44,262,412 shares of Common Stock, including 12,969,700 shares of Common Stock underlying currently exercisable options and 24,189,000 shares of Common Stock underlying physically settled swaps that Elliott International may be deemed to beneficially own upon satisfaction of certain conditions, constituting approximately 3.4% of the shares of Common Stock outstanding. EICA, as the investment manager of Elliott International, may be deemed to beneficially own the 44,262,412 shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by Elliott International, constituting approximately 3.4% of the shares of Common Stock outstanding.
 
Collectively, Elliott, Elliott International and EICA beneficially own 67,064,200 shares of Common Stock, including 19,651,000 shares of Common Stock underlying currently exercisable options and 36,650,000 shares of Common Stock underlying physically settled swaps that Elliott, Elliott International and EICA may be deemed to beneficially own upon satisfaction of certain conditions, constituting approximately 5.1% of the shares of Common Stock outstanding.

Elliott International has the shared power with EICA to vote or direct the vote of, and to dispose or direct the disposition of, the shares of Common Stock owned directly by Elliott International. Information regarding each of Elliott International and EICA is set forth in Item 2 of this Schedule 13D and is expressly incorporated by reference herein.
 
(c)           The transactions effected by the Reporting Persons during the past 60 days are set forth on Schedule 1 attached hereto.

(e)           Not applicable.
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
Item 6.
Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships With Respect to Securities of the Issuer.
 
Elliott, through The Liverpool Limited Partnership, a Bermuda limited partnership and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Elliott (“Liverpool”), and Elliott International have entered into notional principal amount derivative agreements (the “Derivative Agreements”) in the form of cash settled swaps with respect to 5,780,000 and 11,220,000 shares of Common Stock of the Issuer, respectively (representing economic exposure comparable to less than 1% and less than 1% of the shares of Common Stock of the Issuer, respectively). Collectively, the Derivative Agreements held by the Reporting Persons represent economic exposure comparable to an interest in approximately 1.3% of the shares of Common Stock.  The Derivative Agreements provide Elliott and Elliott International with economic results that are comparable to the economic results of ownership but do not provide them with the power to vote or direct the voting or dispose of or direct the disposition of the shares that are referenced in the Derivative Agreements (such shares, the “Subject Shares”).  The Reporting Persons disclaim beneficial ownership in the Subject Shares.
 
Elliott and Elliott International have entered into notional principal amount derivative agreements with respect to 12,461,000 and 24,189,000 shares of Common Stock of the Issuer, respectively, in the form of physically settled swaps that the Reporting Persons may be deemed to beneficially own upon satisfaction of certain conditions. Collectively, the swaps held by the Reporting Persons represent economic exposure comparable to an interest in approximately 2.8% of the shares of Common Stock.  
 
The counterparties to the Derivative Agreements and the physically settled swaps are unaffiliated third party financial institutions.
 
Elliott has purchased from counterparties call options that carry the right to call from such counterparties up to 6,681,300 shares of Common Stock at a price of $5 per share, if such right is exercised prior to or on December 1, 2015.
 
Elliott International has purchased from counterparties call options that carry the right to call from such counterparties up to 12,969,700 shares of Common Stock at a price of $5 per share, if such right is exercised prior to or on December 1, 2015.
 
On November 23, 2015, Elliott, Elliott International and EICA entered into a Joint Filing Agreement (the “Joint Filing Agreement”) in which the parties agreed to the joint filing on behalf of each of them of statements on Schedule 13D with respect to the securities of the Issuer to the extent required by applicable law. The Joint Filing Agreement is attached as an exhibit hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.
 
Except as described above in this Item 6, none of the Reporting Persons has any contracts, arrangements, understandings or relationships with respect to the securities of the Issuer.
