The following constitutes Amendment No. 8 to the Schedule 13D filed by the undersigned (“Amendment No. 8”). This Amendment No. 8 amends the Schedule 13D as specifically set forth herein.

Item 3.Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

Item 3 is hereby amended and restated to read as follows:

As described in Items 4 and 5 below, the Reporting Persons no longer beneficially own any Shares.

Item 4.Purpose of Transaction.

Item 4 is hereby amended to add the following:

As previously disclosed, on December 13, 2023, the Issuer entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Pathos AI, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Parent”), and WK Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub”). The Merger Agreement provides for, among other things, (i) the acquisition of the Issuer by Parent through a cash tender offer (the “Offer”) by Merger Sub for all of the outstanding Shares of the Issuer, for: (A) $1.16 in cash per Share (the “Cash Consideration”), and (B) one contingent value right (a “CVR”) for potential cash payments of up to approximately $0.17 per Share (the Cash Consideration plus one CVR, collectively, the “Offer Price”) and (ii) following the completion of the Offer, the merger of Merger Sub with and into the Issuer (the “Merger”) with the Issuer surviving the Merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent.

The Offer expired one minute after 11:59 P.M., Eastern Time, on Thursday, January 25, 2024. Pursuant to the Support Agreement (as defined and described in Amendment No. 7 to the Schedule 13D), in connection with the Offer, the Reporting Persons and the Partners Managed Account irrevocably tendered all of the Shares and shares of non-voting common stock held by them on January 25, 2024 for the Offer Price. All conditions to the Offer were satisfied and Merger Sub accepted for payment all Shares validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) prior to the expiration of the Offer.

Following the consummation of the Offer, the remaining conditions to the Merger set forth in the Merger Agreement were satisfied, and on January 26, 2024, Merger Sub merged with and into the Issuer, with the Issuer surviving the Merger as a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent.

In addition, pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger, each option to purchase Shares under the Company’s Amended and Restated 2018 Stock Option/Stock Issuance Plan or 2021 Equity Incentive Plan, pursuant to an inducement award, or otherwise were cancelled for no consideration.

Accordingly, the Reporting Persons ceased to beneficially own any securities of the Issuer.

Item 5.Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

Items 5(a) – (c) and (e) are hereby amended and restated to read as follows:

(a)-(b) As described in Item 4 above, the Reporting Persons no longer beneficially own any Shares.

(c) Except as set forth in Item 4 above, the Reporting Persons have not entered into any transactions in the securities of the Issuer since the filing of Amendment No. 7 to the Schedule 13D.

(e) As of January 26, 2024, the Reporting Persons ceased to be the beneficial owners of more than 5% of the outstanding Shares.
